What If Men Could Get Pregnant?



Mood swings, baby brain. Until now, potential pregnancy complications are something only those of us with uteruses experienced.

But what if men could get pregnant too? Men statistically work more in business, politics and lawmaking. If men got pregnant, abortions could become legal or more easily available in many places. Paid leave for pregnancies would probably be more commonplace.

If men could give birth, it could lead to more empathy when it comes to pregnancy, birth and parental leave. Biologically, it may be unlikely for men to carry pregnancies today, but in future anything could be possible.

Human Journey in the Womb



Billions of people, one process, one species. Despite our geographical locations, languages and different colors, we all share the same beginning, and that’s enough reason to care for one another.

Our existence on planet Earth is temporary, but what we leave behind for our future generations is what matters. If our legacy is hate, war and destruction, we would have wasted our existence and doomed ourselves to oblivion. But why doom ourselves when we know we can do better?

The bond of humanity connects us, and not just through the process of human development in the womb, but also through our incredible genetic similarity to one another. Your genes are 99.9% similar to the genes of every other human being on planet Earth. We are all connected, and this connection runs deeper into the day life emerged on this planet.

Let’s care for one another, and let’s spread love and kindness to our fellow humans.

MBARI's Top 10 deep-sea animals

MBARI’s Top 10 deep-sea animals

The deep sea—Earth’s largest habitat—is home to a host of magical and mysterious animals. As we help our education and conservation partners at the Monterey Bay Aquarium prepare for the exhibit Into the Deep: Exploring Our Undiscovered Ocean, launching in 2022, they were curious to know which denizens of the deep are our favorites? With that question in mind, we gathered five of MBARI’s finest deep-sea biologists—Shannon Johnson, Kakani Katija, George Matsumoto, Bruce Robison, and Susan von Thun—and came up with a list of ten favorites. You might be surprised to see what made our list and what makes these creatures so lovable.

For more than three decades, MBARI researchers have been exploring the deep ocean with remotely operated vehicles, discovering fascinating ways that life in the deep sea has evolved to thrive in this dark, cold world. Our ocean is vast and full of things yet unseen. Every time we set out on an expedition, we are amazed by new observations and we are excited to share ten of those discoveries with you!

Human Skeleton under Different Situations (Use your Headphone)

Human Skeleton under Different Situations (Use your Headphone)

Humans have around 270 bones at birth, but they fuse together as we grow old. By the time we reach adulthood, the number of our bones goes down to 206 bones. The bones in our skeletons reach their maximum density around age 21.

Our bones do not only help us move, they provide us with structural support, protect our organs and help us produce red blood cells. They also act as a storage area for minerals, particularly calcium.
