As many of us know, plastic litter is a huge problem for the environment. The 4ocean Mobile Skimmer makes it much quicker and easier to clean plastic litter out of the water, though. It's being tested locally, but has been working great so far. Hopefully more of these will be made so that people all over the world can help clean up the environment.

Good Samaritan Traveller Finds ATM Skimmer in Vienna

Good Samaritan Traveller Finds ATM Skimmer in Vienna

Taken-style human-trafficking rings aren't the only danger to look out for when you travel abroad. Sometimes the biggest, baddest criminals out there aren't after family... but your wallet. Please enable JavaScript to watch this video Good Samaritan traveller Ben Tedesco (who actually works at a security firm himself) thwarted one such attack at a downtown Vienna ATM. Just in time to stop a fellow tourist's credit card info from being stolen, he noticed something off about the pulsing green card swiper. A closer look and Ben saw the faint lines of glue around the edges. A little pull, and CLICK, away comes the ATM skimmer that would've stolen his identity and bank account information in nanoseconds.  See the original shocking video. Could you tell the difference?  Ben's since reported the fake ATM skimmer to Vienna police. Guess it pays to be paranoid! View Now

Swimmer Begins 6 Month Journey Across Pacific Ocean

Imagine swimming for eight hours a day for six straight months. That's what 51-year-old Benoit Lecomte is planning to do, setting off on an epic journey from Chōshi, Japan to San Francisco, California. More than six years of preparations have lead to this moment. Finally really to start my swim across the Pacific Ocean. #theswim #benlecomtetheswim watch the live stream of my departure on @Seeker Facebook. @Discovery pic.twitter.com/TPJlz4tbEY — Ben Lecomte (@BenLecomteSwim) June 4, 2018 After each day's swim, Lecomte does get to recover on a nearby yacht, staffed with a support crew and researchers. The next day, he's dropped off at the same spot he stopped swimming the day before, according to CNN. Seeker breaks down Lecomte's physical and mental preparation for the expedition. The almost 6,000 mile swim takes him through the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch," or the swirling pile of trash in the ocean that's three times the size of France, according to CNN. Part of Lecomte's motivation for the swim is to raise awareness about plastic pollution. Thanks @leonardodicaprio for sharing my story. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to use my passion for swimming as a platform to raise awareness for such an important issue. @seeker @discoverychannel #theswim #BenLecomte pic.twitter.com/19L8zlNnIF — Ben Lecomte (@BenLecomteSwim) June 5, 2018 Lecomte has been training for this event for four years. In 1998, he was the first person to swim across the Atlantic Ocean without a kickboard. Track Lecomete's live progress every day here and get more information on The Longest Swim website. View Now
