To highlight it’s commitment to the environment Montreal’s Eaton center teamed up with street artist ‘Roadsworth’ to create an installation of recycled materials ONLY using products thrown away by customers… The results are pretty impressive, and the concept strong, but I think the photographs may make it look a lot more impressive than it was when viewed in person (via The Trendy Girl).
They’ve come up with a really great idea on how to publicize the results of some of their radiation tests of fish from Japanese supermarket shelves. A fake advertisement flier, listing the amounts of cesium instead of prices.
And the message it sends is very clear: Greenpeace could not find any fish that contained radiation exceeding legal safety limits. The legal limit for Japan is 500 becquerels per kilogram. The highest amount of radiation they found in one fish was 47.3 Bq/kg, or less than one tenth the limit.
These trees are amazing – beautiful, rare and mother nature at it’s very best. I find it hard not to imagine them as mushrooms Alice in Wonderland, longing to see a fat pink cheshire cat chilling out on top of one of them (other less imaginative people say they look like flying saucers perched on trunks). Of course that’s all in my mind but in real life these trees have a pretty cool name too - Dragon Blood Trees.
F-Bomb-A-Thom may be a random response to the BP oil spill but it kind of works and is beautifully shot. For a brilliant ‘OMG are people that backward’ moment also check out this response on the creative: ‘UnF–kTheGulf.com’ Ad Mixes Children and Profanity to Push Left Message the messages are unintentionally really really funny.
Anyway fuck those loosers above I think this manifesto rocks:
Cleaning Up the Gulf One Dirty Word at a Time
Bored on the commute? Now you can dissect a frog as often as you want on your iPad. Assuming you have an iPad of course.
This is actually a good thing as it means you can learn about biology without having to actually dissect any frogs. Same way iSnort lets you chop up a line of coke without having to be a twat and take any (via Street Anatomy).
This is amazing, I am now firmly a bio–geeko entranced by Lois – a rare and large “Corpse Flower,” so named because of the stench of decomposing flesh that issues from the blossom. Her claim to fame is that there are so few of her species, which in turn bloom rarely — only 28 times since 1939. All of this makes Lois’s imminent flowering really exciting. To add to the fun, Lois has her own Twitter account: @CorpzFlowrLois.
