The Richest 1% Own Almost Half the World’s Wealth & 9 Other Mind-Blowing Facts on Wealth Inequality

You can’t flick on the news, scroll through your Twitter timeline, or talk to your overly money-conscious dad in 2023 without coming across the words “inflation”, “cost-of-living”, or “recession.” It’s bleak, but it’s how the year is starting off and it’s how it’s predicted to continue. While most of the world has to grit their teeth and buckle down for a bumpy financial year, Oxfam has revealed that the wealthiest 1% won’t feel it — more than that, according to the organization, their profits are part of the problem.

How Can Sports Advance Human Rights?

How Can Sports Advance Human Rights?

Few things in life compare to the rush of a good sports game. Whether you’re celebrating a win for your favorite team or throwing a ball around with friends, sports have a unique way of uniting people around the world. The lessons we encounter in sports will stay with us throughout our lifetimes; we learn to play by the rules, respect our opponents, and end every match with a handshake or high five. For these reasons and more, making sports a safe, inclusive, and equitable environment for everyone should be a natural step in advancing human rights standards around the world — and, finally,...

Congress finally passes bill to regulate toxic chemicals

Congress finally passes bill to regulate toxic chemicals

The US House of Representatives and Senate overwhelmingly passed a bill to overhaul the 1976 Toxic Chemicals Control Act, which has been assailed as one of the least effective laws ever passed. It was a rare act of bipartisanship and a much needed revision for the environment and the people. Now President Obama just has to sign it into law--and he will. Under the old law, 64,000 chemicals commonly used for consumer products were unable to be reviewed and deadly substances like asbestos could not be banned. It essentially stopped the Environmental Protection Agency from doing its job. So...

Plastic Waste Is Threatening Ocean Bacteria That Produce 10% of the World's Oxygen

Chemicals leached from ocean plastic are endangering marine bacteria that produce up to 10% of the world’s oxygen, according to a new study published in the science journal Communications Biology. “We found that exposure to chemicals leaching from plastic pollution interfered with the growth, photosynthesis, and oxygen production of Prochlorococcus, the ocean's most abundant photosynthetic bacteria," Dr. Sasha Tetu, lead author and Macquarie University researcher, said in a press release. As plastic is formed in factories, it becomes combined with additives to enhance its durability,...

Never Mind Polar Bears, This Is What You Should Have Learned About the Arctic in School

When we say "Arctic", what comes to mind? Maybe some snow? Polar bears? Something you learned is melting at school or from a David Attenborough documentary? Or even the prefix to a certain English Mercury-winning rock band that may or may not have been the soundtrack of your youth?
