Vertical reuse of containers for herb garden. Nice project!
We love this as mush as we love these tips for growing food in a small space.
Painter Love. See what the group CANLOVE does with spent spray paint cans!

Hey guys! So, as you may (or may not) know, I’m a part of the HuffPost Girls in STEM program! I’ve been working over the past several weeks with my amazing mentor Emilie learning about memories and how we store and remember them. So, as a part of this project, we decided to do a small project about memories—specifically, mapping about the brain networks through which memories are encoded and retrieved.
To do this, we need some sample memories.
This is where you guys come in!
It’d be fantastic if you guys could volunteer some memories for our project for us to analyze—it’s completely anonymous so if you write about the time you accidentally slipped and fell in front of your entire science class we won’t know it’s you ;)
Any memory will suffice—although we know you guys have some interesting ones. Maybe one time your neighbor’s cat looked at you kind of funny? Or maybe you accidentally dropped an egg but managed to catch it before it hit the ground and you decided that you were probably a ninja.
Don’t fail us now, Tumblr.
Just fill out the short survey linked below and you’re done! Do it.

DO IT, DO IT, DO IT!

Few glaciers in the world draw more interest from glaciologists than Pine Island Glacier (P.I.G.), in West Antarctica. The speed of its ice flow has been increasing exponentially in the past two decades. P.I.G. rests on bedrock that sits below sea level — making it more vulnerable to continued acceleration and increased contribution to global sea level rise.P.I.G. also drains a massive section of the West Antarctic ice sheet that, alone, would add about 1 meter to global sea level.Given all this, it should be no surprise that scientists — including those at NASA — have made P.I.G. a high-value science target. Why is it accelerating so rapidly? How much of its ice will move into the sea in future years; how much sea level rise will it cause? These are the questions scientists are trying to answer, using satellite data, observations from low-altitude research flights and even field campaigns to the bitter cold and remote region.

Calling All Geek Girls! Apply for the Huffington Post's STEM Mentorship Program -
It’s well-established that women face social pressures that push them away from pursuing science as a life passion. It’s also well-established that women who do stay in science face discrimination all the way up the ladder. Women are 50 percent of the population but hold less than a quarter of STEM jobs.
Young ladies, HuffPo has your back. Check it out:
Dear Geek Girls,
We were there once — making a decision about which career path to choose can be a source of great anxiety, especially in tough economic times like these. But having someone on your side to coach you through, and give you practical advice without judgement can make all the difference in the world.
HuffPo Science is offering young ladies 14-21 the chance to be mentored by a female scientist, to show you the ropes and keep you motivated to achieve your goals. Applications are due Jan 31st, so apply here today!
Big round of applause to them for this effort.
PS — we need more mentors!
