Everyone produces waste, and the Swedes are no different. It’s what they do with it that is unusual. Sweden recycles and sorts its waste so efficiently that less than 1 percent ends up in landfills. But perhaps even more interesting, and somewhat controversial, is that Sweden burns about as much household waste as it recycles, over 2 million tons, and converts this to energy. But even with this amount of domestic waste, the country’s 32 waste-to energy (WTE) incineration plants can handle even more. And when Sweden runs out of its own garbage, it offers a service to the rest of garbage-bloated Europe: importing excess waste from other countries. sweden.se

Koko's Tribute to Robin Williams.
Robin Williams met Koko in 2001. It was a very cheerful encounter for both, and Koko has treasured it to this day. When Koko learned of Robin's passing (on Aug. 11, 2014) she became very sad. We hope this video will lift her spirits and remind everyone of the profound gift of joy that Robin Williams brought to our world.

These divers had the experience of a lifetime interacting with playful seals off the east coast of the United Kingdom. The Farne Islands are home to the largest colony of Grey seals in the North Sea. Filmed on location in the Farne Islands, UK with the help of Sovereign Divers.
Disclaimer: The seals are wild animals and approach the divers entirely by their own choice. No seals are forced to interact or forced to stay. No seals are harmed by diver interaction. Seal interaction in the UK (where this was filmed) is not illegal.
Extra disclaimer: These seals are young pups who are very curious about the area in which they live. At the time of year that this was filmed the seals were about 2-4 months old and already 2m long and about 200-300lbs in weight. As always once the seals get older and move off to form colonies of their own elsewhere and the majority of them will not see people again. Fully adult seals are rarely this interactive and whilst tolerant of divers they tend to keep away after their first year of diver visits.

The American Museum of Ceramic Art, Pomona, California hosted ICHEON: Reviving the Korean Ceramics tradition, an unprecedented exhibition organized by Icheon, South Korea. Icheon has a history of ceramic culture that began over 5000 years ago and has a reputation for its internationally renowned ceramics.
Icheon’s ceramics have become sought after works of art and are deeply-seated in Korea’s local economy. The city’s vital role in ceramics has made it possible for Icheon to become the best and largest center in Korea’s crafts today. Icheon is the home of over 350 studios and potteries that specialize in traditional, contemporary, and high-tech applications of the ceramic body. Although technological advances constantly redefine the ceramic industry, Korean ceramic artists strive to preserve the tradition of peace, simplicity, and spiritual temperance of Korean art. .amoca.org
