Out of Uniform: A Firefighter Pedals a Message of Safety

As a young kid, I always looked up to those, who at their best, could make a difference, helping those at their worst. Since the first grade, I was determined to become a firefighter, but in order to do so I needed to get in shape.

The Terramar Project: Become a Citizen and Protector of the High Seas

For anybody whose heart belongs to the seas, here's a chance to claim citizenship to our planet’s international waters.

Who owns the seas? For 64 percent of the world's oceans—the amount that lies beyond national jurisdictions—the answer is no one. The high seas, as they're known, are like the planet's commons: since they don't really belong to anyone, no nation invests enough in offering them the protection they deserve, even though they constitute 45 percent of the planet's surface area.
