Comments Off on Biodegradable plastics are the ‘enemy of the environment,’ says UN scientist

To combat the massive problem of plastic debris in the world’s oceans, manufacturers developed lightweight plastic products that are supposed to break down rapidly, thus reducing hazards to marine animals. The so-called ‘biodegradable plastics’ aren’t the answer, according to the United Nations’ top environmental scientist, because they don’t behave as promised. Instead, the ‘greener’ plastics contribute to the problem of ocean plastic just as much as other varieties. Previous…

Comments Off on Greenery-infused nursery school in Japan brings children closer to nature

Rather than orient the two-story building towards the surrounding urban jungle, the architects turn attention inwards with the design of a ring-shaped structure centered on an inner courtyard. “The concept of its design is to provide enough space for 160 children to play around in the nature and also for all their parents and nursery staff to feel safe,” said the architects.

Archeologists dig up what could be the largest human-carved stone block ever

Comments Off on Archeologists dig up what could be the largest human-carved stone block ever

It’s one thing to use a bunch of heavy, petroleum-fueled equipment to make a massive structure – but doing it by hand, the old fashioned way, is truly a feat. And archeologists recently discovered a grand example, in what could be the largest single stone block every created by the human hand. German archeologists recently discovered a 2,000-year-old stone dating back to the Roman Empire in a quarry in Baalbek, Lebanon . At 64 feet long by almost 20 feet wide, the new stone weighs in at a massive 1,650 tons. It was found next to some equally hefty neighbors that were previously discovered; the 1,000-ton Hajjar el-Hibla , or Stone of the Pregnant Woman, and another unnamed stone weighing in at 1,240 tons.
