Fun guy chillin’ in South American rainforest finds plastic-eating fungi
Seriously, though this is kind of a big deal. Know that big problem we have? You know, the one involving a crapload of used plastic hanging around in landfills with nowhere to biodegrade for a couple million years? Well, Jonathan Russell might’ve solved that problem. See, Russell and his fellow Yale students went to Ecuador, where they found a new kind of fungus they’re calling Pestalotiopsis microspora. Big deal, you’re thinking. Anyone can find fungus anywhere! Well, something his fellow students found out after the fact is that this fungus can live on a diet of polyurethane alone — and even crazier, it doesn’t even need air to do so! In other words, we could potentially put it at the bottom of a landfill and cover it with plastic, and it would do the rest of the work. This might be game-changing if it works as advertised.

Beginning in 2006, Lucas Foglia set out to photograph tight-knit communities in the American West, but he soon found himself in the midst of a mining boom that was transforming the landscape.

For seven years, Foglia documented the transformations happening in America’s most rural and least populated region. Frontcountry is photojournalism at its very best.

These handmade fabric moths by Yumi Okita are “inspired from realism of nature then manipulated into the world of imagination”. They can be found (when they’re not sold out) at her Esty store

A few details from the Standard of Ur.

Found in southern Iraq, and dating to about 2600-2400 BCE, the Standard of Ur depicts one of the earliest representations of a Sumerian army.
