Our 10 Must-Read Stories — the OZY Highlight Reel - OZY | A Modern Media Company


From smart cyberattack saviors to a new buzzy booze, here’s the best of OZY this week.

By OZY Editors

This week we learned some troubling news about the world’s oceans: They are absorbing up to 60 percent more heat than previously thought, which means the planet is warming faster than expected. A happier sea story? The largest-ever octopus sea nursery — a “shimmering” garden with as many as 1,000 brooding females — has been found 2 miles below the surface of the Pacific Ocean, off the coast of California. The footage captured also showed some octopus embryos in their mothers’ arms.

It’s a busy time, even if you’re not a scientist trying to save the world or a new octo-mom. It’s time for some you time. Grab a comfy chair and enjoy some of our favorite stories on OZY this week.
