"Cadbury’s was an early pioneer of ethical business. Construction of their first factory included thousands of homes for its workers, literally building a community on site. All homes had gardens and access to ample green space. These homes are still standing, and many of their 25,000 residents still work for Cadbury’s, still renting their homes from the trust that was created to look after these community assets."

— Joe Peach on how Cadbury’s built community into their early business model. (via thisbigcity)

Ever wonder how a Jellyfish “stings”?  Turns out, it’s actually like a Needle.  Check out this awesome graphic that Emily Weddle created from the latest episode of Smarter Every Day.
As you can see in the graphic, a Jellyfish actually stings you with needles.  The process in the photo spans the time of approximately 20 milliseconds. If you watch the video I incorporate timing data so you can perform measurements.  
What’s so cool about this is scientists don’t really understand HOW they nematocyst fire.  They’re pretty confident that they’re triggered by mechancial contact on the outside, of the tentacle… but they’re NOT sure how the stinger “inflates”.  Dr. Seymour thinks it’s too fast to be osmotic.  There’s obviously a channel somehow that opens and creates flow and pressure into the organelle.  I bet it’s some kind of REALLY quick chemical process.
I think we’re going to call graphics like this “Smarter Every Day InfoGifs”.

It’s still Shark Week! Most sharks are pretty terrifying (perhaps it’s their nasty habit of biting people’s limbs off…) but they need our empathy too. “We’re killing over 100 million sharks every single year,” photographer Brian Skerry says in his talk from the Mission Blue Voyage. “I didn’t want to continue to portray sharks as monsters.” That’s a tough sell with their hammerhead noses and giant teeth, but hey, these sharks turned out to be pretty friendly.
