"7 Days of Garbage" // Environmental photography project by Gregg Segal
Photographer Gregg Segal's 7 Days of Garbage photo series. “7 Days of Garbage is a series of portraits of friends, neighbors, and other acquaintances with the garbage they accumulate in the course of a week. Subjects are photographed surrounded by their trash in a setting that is part nest, part archeological record. We’ve made our bed and in it we lie.”

Jacqueline Novogratz: Inspiring a life of immersion We each want to live a life of purpose, but where to start? In this luminous, wide-ranging talk, Jacqueline Novogratz introduces us to people she's met in her work in "patient capital" -- people who have immersed themselves in a cause, a community, a passion for justice. These human stories carry powerful moments of inspiration.
This TED talk really spoke to me. It talks about how you cannot be a leader if you do not immerse yourself inside the social movement or problem that you are trying to improve. This made me think of Model the Way. How can you model the way without immersing yourself into the population you are trying to inspire? How can you inspire or leave a legacy without being a part of the population you serve?

[Los Angeles] Digital photographer Thierry Cohen, envisions what cities around the world would look like after dark and without artificial light in his series Villes éteintes ("Darkened Cities"). To create the images he travelled to regions far away from all artificial light, but on the same latitude as major cities. He photographed the skies, and then combined those images with photographs of the cities in question, altered to remove all lighting.

Take a look at this amazing visualization that explains how we've treated the Earth over the past 100 years and what the next 100 might hold. This video was made by the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme and Globaia, and funded by the United Nations. I found it through the website Flowing Data. The data in this video comes from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's fifth assessment report, in case you were curious.

Fukushima VICE Report will leave you speechless Dr. Masamichi Nishio, MD, who was examining children at elementary school 40 miles from Fukushima Daiichi: There has undoubtedly been radiation poisoning, so people should not be living here. But the government will not say that out loud. All they wanted to do was cover-up what had been done. There is a lot of secrecy.

The photograph looks at once beautiful and disturbing: crystalline waters shimmer beside a rock-strewn beach. It takes a moment to realize those jade speckles aren't some extraordinary case of marine phosphorescence but rather hundreds of discarded plastic bottles, piled upon the rocks.

ALGAS - We all know that pollution is a big problem, but artist Alejandro Durán has chosen to showcase it in a rather beautiful way. For Washed Up Durán collects trash that has made its way to the beaches of Sian Ka’an, Mexico’s largest federally-protected reserve. He then creates color-based, site-specific sculptures that mimic nature. Over the course of the project plastic waste from fifty nations on six continents has been identified. Tragic and impactful.
Ever wonder where that bottle goes when you toss it into the ocean? Washed Up is an ongoing project by Mexican-born, New York-based artist Alejandro Durán that addresses the issue of plastic pollution making its way across the ocean and onto the shores of Sian Ka’an, Mexico’s largest federally-protected reserve.

Food Waste Fast Facts
In college and business cafeterias they are eliminating cafeteria trays. In this case students are then not able to carrying multiple plates, which leads them to not take excess food. I can encourage the audience to try not using trays when they go to one of the dining halls. Source: "Ending food waste in restaurants" posted on EndFoodWasteNow.org
