How the world went from 170 million people to 7.3 billion, in one map

How the World went 
from 170 Million People
 to 7.3 Billion People
 in One Map

Humanity has conquered the world. It's hard to appreciate what that means, but the video above, by WorldPopulationHistory.org, shows just how incredible the growth and expansion of humanity has been over the past 2,000 years.

Here are some of the notable moments in the video:
  • The map begins at 1:18, showing human population a little more than 2,000 years ago, with each yellow dot representing 1 million people in an area. At this point, there are 170 million people on Earth.
  • At 3:20, the Mongol invasion of China begins in the early 13th century, killing huge segments of the population. The Mongol conquests are still considered one of the deadliest wars in history, killing tens of millions of people at a time when the world population was much smaller — around 360 million.
  •  At 3:30, in the 14th century, the Black Death spreads around the world, killing more than 20 million people in Europe — nearly one-third of the continent's population — and 75 million around the world, when the global population was about 380 million.
  • At 4:20, the world population explodes thanks to the Industrial Revolution and modern medicine. From 1800 to 2015, the global population grew from about 910 million to more than 7.3 billion.
  • After 4:40, you can begin to see how the world population will expand in the future — to nearly 9.6 billion.

The video itself can get a little dry at points, but what's really impressive is the fully interactive map at WorldPopulationHistory.org

There, you can zoom in, go through different years, and look at significant milestones.

Piglet and Her Kitten Companion Find Love ♥

Rescued Piglet and Her Kitten Companion
Find Love In an Animal Sanctuary
Dos bebés dándonos una lección de amor♥



♥  
World, meet Laura the piglet and Marina the kitten — two rescued babies who are overcoming some very sad pasts thanks to plenty of love and care. And, of course, plenty of snuggles.

The pair are the youngest residents of Santuario Igualdad Interespecie (Interspecies Equality Sanctuary), a refuge for farm animals in Santiago, Chile.

While their backgrounds are quite different, not unlike their species, Laura and Marina have already begun to forge an inseparable bond that makes the future for each so much brighter than before.



Marina was saved by a Good Samaritan after being found sick and alone, having been abandoned on the street as a newborn. When she arrived at the sanctuary earlier this month, it wasn’t clear that she would even survive. Her rescuers, nevertheless, promised her they’d do everything they could to see that she did.

Laura’s story is no less tragic. She was born into the meat industry on the grounds of a factory farm, where she was lucky to be rescued and brought to the sanctuary. Sadly, her mother remains confined there, so it’s been up to volunteers to keep her warm, fed and cared for.

Naturally, it was only a matter of time before the piglet and kitten were introduced — and they became fast friends.

Not only have the young animals begun to help one another find peace after the rough starts to their as-yet brief lives, they’re also living proof that love has a way of making differences seem obsolete, as the sanctuary wrote online:

“Since her arrival, Laura has been treated with love and care that a baby deserves, and has formed a deep friendship with Marina the kitten, showing by example, that when it comes to relations of friendship and respect, no matter the species to which one belongs.”

Nowhere is that more clear than in seeing the Laura and Marina cuddle.

High winds and a full moon could combine to create a high tide of nearly 8 feet (2.4 meters) in Atlantic City, officials said, still shy of the 10 feet (3 meters) Sandy caused in Ocean City.

In New York City, the National Weather Service issued coastal flood warnings for the boroughs of Staten Island, Brooklyn and Queens. Officials prepared for possible evacuations from low-lying areas.

Post-Sandy reconstruction has put the area in a stronger position to face the storm, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said.

There's a blizzard coming! Are you aware? If you live in the Northeast, you've likely heard some rumblings about it. Maybe because forecasts have predicted that some areas will be buried in up to 18 or even 24 inches of snow this weekend. That's the height of a small child. Yikes.


If you'd like to increase your anxiety levels even more so, NASA has you covered. The agency just released this awe-inducing picture, captured from space, showing immense Winter Storm Jonas headed toward the East Coast. The photo was taken with the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) instrument on the Suomi NPP satellite — a probe operated jointly by NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). It shows the low pressure system over the south central United States before it's expected to make its way east.

If that still image isn't enough to freeze your appendages prematurely, NASA also released a short animation of the storm's movements thus far, made using visual and infrared data from NOAA's GOES-East satellite. So if you're lucky enough to live on the East Coast, you can watch the storm slowly creep toward you, preparing to make its precipitative attack — all before you actually experience it on Saturday.

Fruits and Vegetables That Get Healthier After You Cook Them

Fruits & Vegetables
That Get Healthier
After You Cook Them

By Lee Breslouer

Whether you eat a Pop-Tart hot or right out of its silver package, the nutritional value stays the same: basically zero. Vegetables and fruits, however, sometimes only unlock their true health benefits when they're cooked in some way. 

We spoke to Toby Smithson, MSNW, RDN, LDN, CDE, a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, to find out which fruits and veggies are worth heating up.
Potatoes
Cook and chill is not a variation on "Netflix and chill," but it is something to consider doing to potatoes. "Cook [potatoes] using any method of cooking and then chill them, and the starch [within them] will become resistant," says Smithson. This is good because the starch doesn't get absorbed into your small intestine, "which can help blunt spikes in blood glucose." Increase your cooked and chilled potato intake by making this kimchi potato salad from two red bowls.



Tomatoes
The fruit Americans rely on for movie reviews contains a plant chemical called lycopene. Smithson says that cooking tomatoes with olive oil for 15-30 minutes boosts its lycopene content, which is recognized as an antioxidant. The nutritionist recommends you cook tomatoes for "a sauce over pasta, fish, or chicken." Here's a recipe to get you started.

Mushrooms
Buttery sautéed mushrooms are standard at steakhouses, but getting healthy cooking tips from a steakhouse isn't ideal. Smithson says that boiling mushrooms allows you to fully unlock their nutritional potential -- it boosts the antioxidants and "doubles the nutrients, like fiber, vitamin D, vitamin C, potassium, iron, and folate."
Carrots
Boiling carrots sounds like a torturous thing to do to a vegetable that's already satisfying raw, but Smithson says that throwing them into hot water "releases antioxidant components which help preserve carotenoids and vitamin C." And those carotenes help protect the body's cells from free radicals, which are bad for you. New Radicals, however, are still great. You do only get what you give. And if you want to jazz them up, Damn Delicious recommends you coat them in honey and maple syrup.


 
Peaches
Eating canned peaches might make you flash back to middle school lunch (and also getting beat up because you played the French horn), but it turns out those lunch ladies were onto something. Peaches are cooked as part of the canning process, which brings out their full nutritional benefits. "Vitamin C is retained for up to two years in a canned product, whereas if [the food] is left on the counter or in the fridge, it loses its potency during storage time," says Smithson. Plus, canned peaches have 10x the amount of folate -- a good thing if you're a human, as a folate deficiency can cause some serious problems.       
Asparagus
Just to get it out of the way: this is why it makes your pee smell. Now that's over, cooking asparagus is something to consider because it "makes it easier for our bodies to benefit from some of [its] protective antioxidants," like ferulic acid, according to BBCGoodFood.com. You'll find ferulic acid in the ingredients list on skincare products (it may have anti-aging benefits), and it has a wide range of potentially helpful uses in supplement form. Feasting at Home has a recipe for wok-seared asparagus that also has mushrooms it -- an undeniable two-for-one opportunity.

Spinach
Eating spinach raw isn't a bad thing, and SFGate.com says eating it that way makes it "significantly higher in folate, vitamin C, niacin, riboflavin and potassium" than cooking it. That said, cooking spinach "provides greater amounts of vitamins A and E, protein, fiber, zinc, thiamin, calcium and iron." The benefits don't stop there, as sautéing it "helps free up some of its most important carotenoids for absorption", like beta carotene and lutein, which could help ward off vision loss.


Kale
Kale has plenty of nutritional benefits however it's consumed, but cooking it increases its iron content. And although it has the same amount of calcium cooked or raw, "to increase the amount of calcium the body absorbs" (emphasis ours), Chron.com suggests pairing it with a calcium-rich food like mac and cheese. Or using it to top a whipped ricotta pizza
