The Story of Bottled Water - The Story of Stuff Project The Story of Bottled Water, released on March 22, 2010 (World Water Day), employs the Story of Stuff style to tell the story of manufactured demand—how you get Americans to buy more than half a billion bottles of water every week when it already flows virtually free from the tap. Over five minutes, the film explores the bottled water industry’s attacks on tap water and its use of seductive, environmental-themed advertising to cover up the mountains of plastic waste it produces. The film concludes with a call for viewers to make a personal commitment to avoid bottled water and support public investment in clean, available tap water for all. Credits

BACK TO SCHOOL: 8 Q&A ACTIVITIES “There’s never enough time to do all the nothing you want.” — Calvin So long, summer, we’ll miss you. I hope you’ve all recharged your batteries, made unforgettable memories and are excited about your upcoming ‘new year’. at the Center of Planet Earth (1942) We all learn the names, locations, and even characteristics of the oceans in school. But unless we go into oceanography or some other body-of-water-centric profession, few of us keep them at our command. Maybe the loss of that knowledge has to do with our land-centricity as a species: not only do we live on the stuff, we also put it before water intellectually. You can see how by taking a glance at the design of most any world map, whose framing, details, and color scheme all work together to highlight the land, not the water. Only the map above, the "Spilhaus Projection," dares to reverse that scheme, putting Earth's water at the center and turning it from negative space into positive. But the view provided by the Spilhaus Projection (rendered here by graphic designer Clara Dealberto for Libération) isn't as new as it may look.

Songs by David Bowie, Elvis Costello, Talking Heads & More Re-Imagined as Pulp Fiction Book Covers As David Bowie himself implied in a 1975 interview, "Young Americans" doesn't have much of a narrative. Rather, it’s a portrait of ambivalence, viewed at some remove. The same cannot be said for Young Americans, the wholly imaginary midcentury pulp novel. One look at the lurid cover, above, and one can guess the sort of steamy passages contained within. Bowie’s sweaty palmed classmates at Bromley Technical High School could probably have recited them from memory!
Yoga - with dogs It started in the US, when a growing band of health-conscious dog owners wanted a way of combining their favourite exercise with spending quality time with their pets. Now 'Doga' - yoga with dogs - is growing in popularity in the UK, mainly thanks to the efforts of Swiss-born yoga teacher Mahny Djahanguiri. She runs classes in London for people and their pets, and while the dogs do not really get a yoga workout themselves, they certainly play a part in some of the poses. A spokesperson from the Dogs Trust said: "It is important to remember that dogs can't tell us when they have had enough. Doga, and any variation of it, should always be carried out under the watchful eye of trained professionals." BBC News went along to find out more about about the activity.
Three Ways Film Can Enhance the Student Classroom Experience Do you remember the joy that you felt as a student when you saw the teacher roll the TV into the classroom? Your students can experience the same joy when you show a film in your own classroom – and it won’t be because it’s a perceived distraction. In her recent Guardian.com blog post, Sarah Marsh outlines 12 ways to use film creatively in the classroom. Building on concepts from that piece, we’ll focus on three key themes here: film immersion, cultural immersion, and student activity. Film Immersion
