Ocean Drifters - A beautifully constructed short story about plankton. Written and directed by Dr Richard Kirby and narrated by Sir David Attenborough.
Beautiful indeed. Embarking on a tour below the sea, Attenborough explores marine life from crab larvae to plankton to barnacles, the cyclical processes of photosynthesis, evolutionary diversity as discovered by Charles Darwin, and how what we know about our oceans shapes our view of the natural world, our changing climate, ocean salinity, and how plankton are serving as our “canaries of the ocean”, alerting us to the affects we continue to have on our world.

It’s a bit like flashcards on steroids.
When we read, our eyes move across a page or a screen to digest the words. All of that eye movement slows us down, but a new technology called Spritz claims to have figured out a way to turn us into speed-readers. By flashing words onto a single point on a screen, much like watching TV, Spritz says it will double your reading speed.
