červená škvrna na Jupiteri sa zmenšuje

Historic observations as far back as the late 1800s gauged this turbulent spot to span about 41 000 kilometres at its widest point — wide enough to fit three Earths comfortably side by side. In 1979 and 1980 the NASA Voyager fly-bys measured the spot at a shrunken 23 335 kilometres across. Now, Hubble has spied this feature to be smaller than ever before.

“Recent Hubble Space Telescope observations confirm that the spot is now just under 16 500 kilometres across, the smallest diameter we’ve ever measured,” said Amy Simon of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, USA.

What’s the link between human rights and cooking, cleaning and caring and why does it matter? (h/t Zuzine)

if society recognized  unpaid care work as work – valuable work, significant work, a major occupation – then our policies would be very different. Our government budgets would be different, and our strategies for development would be different.

veľmi zaujímavé video od Zuzky L (ďakujem):

Ten inštitút, z ktorého boli dvaja nórski vedci s klapkami na očiach, potom zavreli. Veľmi zaujímavá myšlienka (a jej zdôvodnenie), ktorá tam odznela, je že čím “rovnejšia” z pohľadu pohlaví je krajina, tým viac sú muži a ženy náchylní vyberať si “stereotypné” povolania. Food for thought.

Plank, to je taký ten cvik na brucho, kde ste na špičkách a na lakťoch. (Vydržím tak cca minútu prv než sa začnem triasť…) Americká tínedžerka vydržala hodinu aj dvadsať minút.

the white tourist’s burden (od Zuziny, ďakujem)

This imagined simplicity of others’ problems presents a contrast to the intangible burdens of post-industrial societies. Western nations are full of well-fed individuals plagued by less explicit hardships such as the disintegration of communities and the fraying of relationships against the possibilities of endless choices. The burdens of manic consumption and unabated careerism are not as easily pitied as crumbling shanties and begging babies. Against this landscape, volunteerism presents an escape, a rare encounter with an authenticity sorely missed, hardship palpably and physically felt — for a small price.
