Introducing the mid-week break, the WaterNotes version of a link roundup or a “what I’ve been reading lately” lineup. It may not always be strictly on topic with our usual themes, but I promise it will be interesting:

Pulling the Plug @ Worst Professor Ever

The Lost Container Cruise @ Failure Magazine

McDonald’s Filet of Fish to Come With Eco-Guarantee @ Fish2Fork

Perspectives on Ocean Science

Do you share my love of ocean documentaries and online videos? (Seriously, you should see my Netflix cue, it’s almost nothing but docs!) Well do I have the motherload for you: UCTV’s Perspectives on Ocean Science!

There is so much here including talks on climate change, magnetic fields, ocean circulation patterns, volcanoes, deep sea animal diversity, marine debris, ocean acidification, and on and on. There are so many videos that I havent had time to view more than a handful myself but I feel that they’re all worthwhile in their own way. If you love TED, you’ll like this!
