How Slovenia is helping its ‘baby dragons’
The eyeless subterranean salamanders that live in the watery depths of Postojna Cave are under threat – but there’s hope in sightPostojna Cave in Slovenia is one of Europe ’s longest cave networks and one of the world’s most spectacular subterranean tourist sites.

Smoking Will Kill A Third More People By 2030 Than It Does Now
GENEVA (Reuters) - Smoking costs the global economy more than $1 trillion a year, and will kill one third more people by 2030 than it does now, according to a study by the World Health Organization and the U.S. National Cancer Institute published on Tuesday. That cost far outweighs global revenues from tobacco taxes, which the WHO estimated at about $269 billion in 2013-2014. “The number of tobacco-related deaths is projected to increase from about 6 million deaths annually to about 8 million annually by 2030, with more than 80 percent of these occurring in LMICs (low- and middle-income countries),” the study s...

Ten young adults who live in Mathare, a large slum in Nairobi, got a crash course last month in cartography 2.0. They learned how to use their smartphones to create a "crowdsourced map" of a slum. This is the signature initiative of Spatial Collective, a Kenyan social enterprise that creates user-generated slum maps. "Since slums are informal settlements, it's hard to know what's there and who lives there," Primož Kovacič, the founder of Spatial Collective told The Huffington Post.
