Welcome to my daily learning journal. Here is today’s list:

1. Ted Talk –Dan Kwartler: What would happen if every human suddenly disappeared? “Human beings are everywhere. With settlements on every continent, we can be found in the most isolated corners of Earth’s jungles, oceans and tundras. Our impact is so profound, most scientists believe humanity has left a permanent mark on Earth’s geological record. So what would happen if suddenly, every human on Earth disappeared? Dan Kwartler investigates. [TED-Ed Animation by Globizco Studios].” (

Ted-ED talks, often 5 minutes, are fast-paced and filled with insights.
