Update from the deep sea!



Our colleagues at Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) have only seen the Haliphron atlanticus octopus three times in 27 years. 

Recently they spotted one carrying an egg-yolk jelly and made a discovery about this elusive species: It looked as though Haliphron had not only made a meal of the jelly, but was hanging onto it, perhaps for defense or for help in catching prey!

DC mayor Muriel Bowser announces new effort to help find missing children

  • Even though a widely shared statistic about 14 black girls going missing in Washington, D.C., in recent weeks has been debunked, the city’s mayor Muriel Bowser has announced new initiatives to help find missing children in the nation’s capital.
  • The initiative includes “wraparound” social services to help address the needs of families in distress.
  • “One missing young person is one too many, and these new initiatives will help us do more to find and protect young people, particularly young girls of color, across our city,” Bowser said, according to Fox News. 
  • The mayor’s statement comes after an inaccurate statistic went viral claiming that 14 black girls had gone missing in 24 hours.
  • The District of Columbia tallied 501 cases of missing juveniles, many of whom were black or Latino, in the first three months of 2017. 
  • In total, only 22 were unsolved as of March 24. Most of the city’s missing teens had left their homes voluntarily, NBC Washington reported. Most were later found. 
  • But, as BuzzFeed reported, the hysteria was rooted in some truth: The cases of missing black people are disproportionately large compared to their white counterparts. 
  • In total, 37% of people reported missing in 2016 were people of color. And those cases rarely make headlines, unlike those of young white women. Read more (3/2717 11:21 AM)

Hollow  Katie Paterson

From the artist:

A microcosmos of all the world’s trees.

‘Hollow’ is a new commission by the University of Bristol, made in collaboration with architects Zeller & Moye, permanently sited in the historic Royal Fort Gardens.

Spanning millions of years, ‘Hollow’ is a miniature forest of all the world’s forests, telling the history of the planet through the immensity of tree specimens in microcosm. The sculpture brings together over 10,000 unique tree species, from petrified wood fossils of the earliest forests that emerged 390 million years ago to the most recent emergent species. The samples of wood span time and space and have been sourced from across the globe, from Yakushima, Japan to the White Mountains of California. From the oldest tree in the world to some of the youngest and near-extinct species, the tree samples contain within them stories of the planet’s history and evolution through time.

Wine Wednesday: The subterranean tasting room at HALL Rutherford, built with limestone and reclaimed 19th century Austrian bricks, is situated directly below its Sacrashe Vineyard. More than 35 pieces of contemporary art are on display here, but the focal point is the eye-catching chandelier, representing a grapevine root system and accented with 1,500 Swarovski crystals.

Here, more of Napa’s most beautiful wine tasting rooms.

Hattervik, a small village in the Faroe Islands (halfway between Orkney and Iceland in the North Atlantic.) I’m inspired by these places where people live their lives beyond the commonplace expectations of our homogenized world. Photographer and friend Eric Guth inspired me this morning with news that he and writer Jennifer Kingsley are teaming up to bring us just such stories in Meet the North (@meetthenorth). Wonderful to see and read these stories from a world too seldom seen and made real to us. Rich stuff. (And thanks to Eric and Jennifer. We’ll be watching.) @meetthenorth @natgeo @natgeocreative
