Ever been to a green sand beach? The newest geohack to fight climate change

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Project Vesta is conducting an experiment by spreading a green mineral on beaches, where its interaction with the waves will pull carbon from the air. On a beach in the Caribbean, a nonprofit called Project Vesta will soon begin testing a radical new way to fight climate change that involves spreading ground-up olivine—a cheap green mineral—over the sand, where ocean waves will break down the mineral, which in turn will pull CO2 from the air. “Our vision is to help reverse climate change by turning a trillion tons of carbon dioxide into rock,” says Tom Green, executive director of Project Vesta.

Employees may be out of sight with remote work but their concerns should not be out of mind, a seasoned HR executive says. After six months of working from home, many of us have settled into new routines and accepted that remote work is here to stay for a while. In speaking with employees located in the U.S., Australia/New Zealand, and Europe at my company, I found that many are experiencing a vast range of emotions when it comes to unexpectedly working remotely, which shouldn’t be too surprising given our varied circumstances at home.

Last year, Apple revived its iPad Air brand and put it on a new iPad. But not that new an iPad. Instead, the 2019 iPad Air was a near-doppelgänger for the previous-generation 10.5-inch iPad Pro. It lacked the latest niceties such as support for the newest Apple Pencil, which clings magnetically to the tablet’s edge and charges as it does so.

LinkedIn’s cofounder is taking air taxis SPAC to the future. It feels like we’ve been hearing about our brave new future of flying taxis forever. Experts insist the skies will be filled with them soon enough, but for now, one of the biggest hurdles is noise pollution.

The MacBook Air and iPad Pro are more alike—and different—than ever

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Apple isn’t trying to turn its laptop into a tablet. And the fact that its tablet is looking more like a laptop doesn’t mean that it wants to be a MacBook. It won’t be remembered as a major moment in Apple history. But we should pause to note that for the first time this week, Apple announced new MacBook Air and iPad Pro models that look like near twins when viewed from above. Read Full Story
