Here's the pitch deck that raised millions for two ex Googlers whose startup helps new millennial parents find childcare

The government hasn’t explained why it’s blocking the free online encyclopedia, but frankly it’s not surprising.

Taking the shame out of the Cone of Shame

Photographer Winnie Au spoke with Buzzfeed about her ongoing Cone of Shame project, which looks to dispel the shame of the cones dogs must wear after medical procedures. Partially inspired by her late corgi Tartine, whose medical treatment would have cost tens of thousands of dollars without insurance, Winnie is using the project to fundraise for Animal Haven Shelter in New York. She’s an advocate for adopting pets. A lot of people I know have bought their dogs verses adopting because they wa...

Honey can reveal a city’s pollution

According to research conducted between the nonprofit Hives for Humanity and the University of British Columbia, honey collected from urban beehives can actually be used to measure a city’s pollution levels.
