Bill Onion, Managing Director:

Boyan Slat's high school project raises millions to clean up world's oceans

Ocean pollution is a major issue around the world, without many easy solutions – here’s one potential solution and somebody with passion trying to get it done.

 

Navarr Barnier, Magento Developer:

Joking Hazard

Warning: Cyanide and Happiness is normally completely inappropriate. Cyanide and Happiness is a somewhat funny webcomic I read on a regular basis. A while back they created a “random comic generator” that occasionally got a few good chuckles when it managed to put together a somewhat decent combination of panels. However, they’ve now gone one step further and built it into a card game. With a very similar feeling to Cards Against Humanity – the deck picks a panel, the judge chooses another panel (that he then makes the first or second panel in the developing strip) from his hand, and then the rest of the table attempts to play the punchline. Looks like it will be a blast!

Mesmerizing Migration: Watch 118 Bird Species Migrate Across A Map Of The Western Hemisphere

Ever wonder how far birds fly and which routes they take on their migratory paths? This migration map from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology shows the routes of 118 species that make the round trip from South and Central America to North America and back each year. A link on the right side of the page documents the flight paths of specific species. 

 

Gian Genovesi, Magento Delivery Director:

Scientists Have Confirmed the Existence of Gravitational Waves

Why Finding Gravitational Waves Would Be Such a Big Deal 

Although this isn't something that we are going to see the benefits of immediately, the measure of gravitational waves gives scientists (who previously could only measure light and sound waves) a whole new tool in their cosmos scanning repertoire. SCIENCE!
