Over the course of three hours on the night of April 14-15, 1912, the messages transmitted by the telegraph operator aboard the R.M.S. Titanic went from the frivolous (on behalf of a passenger to a friend in New York: "Hello Boy. Dining with you tonight in spirit,") to the frantic (Titanic to R.M.S. Carpathia: "We have struck a berg.") to the final ("Come quick. Engine room nearly full."). View Images

Netflix Announces Return of Docuseries BABIES

Netflix's hit docuseries Babies from Nutopia - the production company behind hits like ONE STRANGE ROCK - will drop six new episodes on Friday, June 19, just in time for Father's Day.

Babies Season 1 launched earlier this year and has already been heralded as one of the best documentary series of 2020 by New Scientist, Elle and Esquire.

The first six episodes are still available on Netflix and originally premiered February 21, where it remained on the Top 10 Netflix list for several weeks. We would love to discuss potential coverage opportunities for the new episodes. We have access to series executives, as well as many of the scientists who were highlighted throughout the second half of the series with a few mentioned below.

Continuing on from the first batch of episodes, which looked at major milestones from bonding to first steps and first words, the second batch explores what's going on in the mind of baby and how they make sense of the world, essentially what it is that makes us human. From our desire to be social, how we acquire morality, why humor is so important and how observing their parent's makes toddlers more determined to succeed

Filmed over the course of three years, Babies is a landmark series that explores the miracle of the first full year of life through the pioneering work of leading scientists from across the globe. It's an IN DEPTH look at the first year of life -- the Science behind babies' developments, from sleeping, to eating, crawling to walking and everything in between! The series follows several new parents as they go on this new journey as well as 30+ of the top scientists from around the globe.

Amongst the world class scientists featured are Rebecca Saxe (MIT) and her ground breaking study showing babies are already fine-tuned for seeing and understanding people from an early age; Vasu Reddy's (University of Portsmouth) work around how even very young babies use humour to form a bond; Malinda Carpenter (University of St. Andrews, Scotland) who studies the gestures babies make to share their experience of the world, she believes pointing gestures form the foundation of human culture and communication; Kiley Hamlin (University of British Columbia), whose work reveals that morality may be innate rather than learnt and Julie Mennella's (Monell Institute) hugely influential study that found a direct link between what mothers eat during pregnancy and breastfeeding and your baby's tastes.

Babies is a Nutopia Production for Netflix. Nutopia is a leading television production company with offices in the US and UK, best known for creating huge scale series designed to stand out from the crowd. Recent credits include the acclaimed drama-documentary The Last Czars for Netflix; the award-winning docuseries ONE STRANGE ROCK for National Geographic hosted by Will Smith, The World According to Jeff Goldblum for Disney, Civilisations for the BBC and Emmy-winning PBS series How We Got to Now and America The Story of Us for History.

As oil prices crashed, tankers idled off California—spewing pollution for weeks - National Geographic

Posted: 12 Jun 2020 03:15 PM PDT

Giant ships lurked off the California coast for weeks in April and May, their bellies full of up to 20 million barrels of oil. This floating cache, enough to support the energy needs of the entire U.S. for a day, sat aboard an idling fleet that pumped out tons of pollutants, according to a new analysis performed by the University of College London and shared with National Geographic. These emissions could ultimately affect the long-term health of coastal communities—many of them already at risk and underserved—and they added tons of climate-warming carbon dioxide to the atmosphere.Despite U.S. energy demand plummeting to record lows due to the coronavirus crisis, oil kept getting pumped out of the ground. The resulting oversupply taxed the limits of U.S. storage capacity. Oil trade groups spoke of a scramble to fill up empty pipelines or rail cars, but the most popular option was to charter and fill giant oil tankers. These tankers and their sea-size loads of oil began idling a few miles offshore from major shipping centers around the world, including Los Angeles and Long Beach, California. Oil tankers idling near L.A. spiked when COVID-19 crushed demand for oil.Oil tankers anchored outside ports of Los Agelesand Long Beach, monthly sample*24 (peak)April 21, 2020206 tankersApril 1, 2019100Jan. 2019JulyJan. 2020Price per barrel of benchmark crude oil,daily trend$50$61.59 per barrelApril 1, 20190JulyJan. 2020Jan. 2019–$36.98 (record low)
