Kuroshio Sea Aquarium

Kuroshio Sea – 2nd largest aquarium tank in the world – (song is Please don’t go by Barcelona) from Jon Rawlinson on Vimeo.

I’m not sure it ever occurred to me on my own to visit a fishbowl of any size unless I was picking one something for dinner. Jon Rawlinson‘s gorgeous video of the Kuroshio Sea (hat tip boing boing) at the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium may be changing my mind.

Philip Zimbardo discusses The Lucifer Effect: How Good People Turn Evil

The Project on Law and Mind Sciences at Harvard Law School (PLMS) has been diligently offering up some of the most interesting lectures regarding the influence of psychology, cognitive neuroscience and others in the social sciences on the understanding of law, policy making, and legal theory. By making these materials available on YouTube, they are creating nothing less than a treasure trove. See their YouTube Channel for more.
