Why The Ocean Is Getting Louder

What the world sounds like underwater. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO We often think of the ocean as a quiet, peaceful place, filled with animals that don't make much noise. So when I went diving in the ocean for the first time, I was surprised at how rich the soundscape around me was: you could hear fish nibbling on coral and squid swimming past you. But more than anything, you could almost always hear the hum of a boat engine. It's part of a big problem in the ocean right now. Ship traffic noise has doubled every decade since the 1960s — and it's wreaking havoc on marine life. This video was made in collaboration with Twenty Thousand Hertz, a podcast that dives deep into all kinds of stories about sound. Everything ...

Have you ignored advice on using password managers? This video is for you. Every time a big company is hacked, like when Yahoo got hacked in 2016 and exposed the personal info of over 1 billion accounts, experts tell us to stop trying to memorize all of our password and to use a password manager instead.

Since when you use a password manager you don't have to remember every single password anymore, you can make them really long and complicated. Your passwords are also encrypted so even if your password manager gets hacked, all of the individual passwords stored within are safe from hackers.
