The Story of Solutions explores how we can move our economy in a more sustainable and just direction, starting with orienting ourselves toward a new goal. In the current 'Game of More', we're told to cheer a growing economy -- more roads, more malls, more Stuff! -- even though our health indicators are worsening, income inequality is growing and polar icecaps are melting. But what if we changed the point of the game? What if the goal of our economy wasn't more, but better -- better health, better jobs and a better chance to survive on the planet? Shouldn't that be what winning means? Thank you to our wonderful translators: Sophie from the Mahiru Foundation (Hindi), Jason (Italian), David (Czech), and Yuliya (Russian).

SciFri When Eels Attack! 18,926 views 2 months ago Electric eels zap fish and other underwater prey, but what would make them leap out of the water and shock an animal like a horse? Nineteenth-century naturalist and explorer Alexander von Humboldt first described eels emerging from the water to attack horses, and now Kenneth Catania of Vanderbilt University uses some unique props to reveal shocking insights about the behavior.

Story of Change Over the past several decades, many environmental and social change efforts have come to reflect the centrality of shopping in our culture, suggesting change can be made—or is even best made—through alterations in our individual consumption patterns. These efforts—buy Fair Trade or organic, use a reusable bag, screw in a CFL lightbulb—are a great place to start, but they are a terrible place to stop, ignoring the real source of our power: coming together as engaged citizens. In The Story of Change, released in July 2012, Annie Leonard argues that it’s not bad shoppers who are putting our future at risk; it’s bad policies and business practices. If we really want to change the world, we have to move beyond voting with our dollars and come together to demand rules that work. Credits The Story of Change was created and released by The Story of Stuff Project and produced by Free Range Studios.

Film School Shorts Hit that SUBSCRIBE button! summer camp horror-comedy about a young teen, his crush on a mischievous girl, and how the pursuit of a kiss awakens a lake monster. A short film by Andrew Ellmaker. Made at Columbia University. Turn Reading Time Into Learning Time Want to turn TV time into learning time? Free streaming videos from services like Netflix and Amazon are a boon to parents committed to a well-rounded education for their children—and not opposed to a little screen time on occasion. How cool is it that we can now harness the power of the Internet and decades of film footage to buttress our children’s learning? As E.D. Hirsch Jr. has argued for a quarter-century, the early elementary years are the ideal time to introduce children to the wonders of history (natural and otherwise), geography, literature, art, music, and more. By providing a solid grounding in the core domains of human civilization, we are providing two wonderful gifts for our children: A store of knowledge that will help them better understand the complexities of our universe as they grow older and a rich vocabulary that will make them strong, confident readers in these early, formative years.

Will the future judge us moral? – Stefan Klein and Stephen Cave In 100 years it will not be acceptable to use genderised words such as ‘he’ or ‘she’, which are loaded with centuries of prejudice and reduce a spectrum of greys to black and white. We will use the pronoun ‘heesh’ to refer to all persons equally, regardless of their chosen gender. This will of course apply not only to humans, but to all animals. It will be an offence to eat any life-form. Once the sophistication, not only of other animals, but also of plants has been recognised, we will be obliged to accept the validity of their striving for life.
