plastic pollution in nigeria

Plastic Pollution In Nigeria and Son of the Blob in the Pacific

By | Plastic Pollution | No Comments

Dr. Edd Hind-Ozan joins me for another segment of “What’s Happening in Marine Social Science This Week” where we discuss a plastic pollution story in Nigeria. The story describes a lawyer who was sick of seeing plastic on her beach so much that she started an organization involving community clean ups to help rid the beach of plastic.

I cover a story out of the North Eastern Pacific, where a warm water mass has formed and being dubbed the “Son of the Blob.” Some meteorologists are suggesting the that water mass may be responsible for the droughts and forest fires along the West Coast of North America.

Pre-Register Your Study With Journals With Nick Wehner

By | Journals | No Comments

Nick Wehner is back from OCTO to discuss how Scientists can now pre-register their studies with journals. This process will help scientists vet their methods with peer reviewers and get them approved before they do the study, which will increase their chances of being published by the journal and prevent their study from being scooped.

Nick tells us about the article and how this process will be good for scientists.

If you want to upload your thesis, grey paper pr pre-print to a server where Decision Makers can access, check out MarXiv.

Sharing My Job Search Journey with you

Sharing My Strategy To Find A New Job

By | Ocean Conservation Careers | No Comments

I’m about to embark on a journey to find a job in Marine and/or Freshwater Conservation in Canada and I want to share this journey with you.

I’ve covered finding a job before as I shelled out my advice to over a hundred people in my lifetime; however, I never covered my own experience as it is happening. This is probably the most vulnerable that I have ever put myself out there on this podcast. I want to do it because I want people to know that they are not alone through their journey.

There will be rejection and there will be emotional responses, but I will eventually find a job. I know this because I have been in this situation before.

Where will I begin with my strategy? Well, you will have to listen to the podcast to find out.

Let me know your strategy in our Facebook Group:

oil spill during storm in atlantic canada

Why Isn’t Anyone Talking About The Massive Oil Spill In Newfoundland and Labrador

By | Water Quality | No Comments

There was an oil spill that happened off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador that no one seems to be discussing. It is estimated that 250,000 Litres of oil was spilled it was is still from an unknown cause.

The spill has not yet been contained because the weather is so severe from the “most intense storm” that has hit the area in history. The total amount of oil spilled and the total damage will not be known until the authorities can get in and start containing the spill.

This is yet another reason why Canadians and the world need to move away from our dependence on oil and shift towards more renewable energy sources to protect our coastal water quality as well as our species and habitats.

I would love to know whether you heard about the oil spill before you listened to the podcast. Let me know in the Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.
