Sylvia Earle: Oceanographer

National Geographic Society Explorer-in-Residence Dr. Sylvia A. Earle, called “Her Deepness” by the New Yorker and the New York Times, “Living Legend” by the Library of Congress, and first “Hero for the Planet” by Time magazine, is an oceanographer, explorer, author, and lecturer. She has experience as a field research scientist, government official, and director for corporate and nonprofit organizations, including the Kerr McGee Corporation, Dresser Industries, Oryx Energy, the Aspen Institute, the Conservation Fund, American Rivers, Mote Marine Laboratory, Duke University Marine Laboratory, Rutgers Institute for Marine Science, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, National Marine Sanctuary Foundation, and Ocean Futures.

Formerly chief scientist of NOAA, Earle is the founder of Deep Ocean Exploration and Research, Inc., founder of Mission Blue and SEAlliance, and chair of the Advisory Councils of the Harte Research Institute and the Ocean in Google Earth. She has a B.S. degree from Florida State University, M.S. and PhD. from Duke University, and 22 honorary degrees. She has authored more than 190 scientific, technical, and popular publications; lectured in more than 80 countries; and appeared in hundreds of radio and television productions.

Earle has led more than a hundred expeditions and logged more than 7,000 hours underwater, including leading the first team of women aquanauts during the Tektite Project in 1970; participating in ten saturation dives, most recently in July 2012; and setting a record for solo diving in 1,000-meter depth. Her research concerns marine ecosystems with special reference to exploration, conservation, and the development and use of new technologies for access and effective operations in the deep sea and other remote environments.

Her special focus is on developing a global network of areas on the land and in the ocean to safeguard the living systems that provide the underpinnings of global processes, from maintaining biodiversity and yielding basic life support services to providing stability and resiliency in response to accelerating climate change.

Earle’s more than one hundred national and international honors include the 2011 Royal Geographical Society Gold Medal, 2011 Medal of Honor from the Dominican Republic, 2009 TED Prize, Netherlands Order of the Golden Ark, Australia’s International Banksia Award, Italy’s Artiglio Award, the International Seakeepers Award, the International Women’s Forum, the National Women’s Hall of Fame, Academy of Achievement, Los Angeles Times Woman of the Year, and medals from the Explorers Club, the Philadelphia Academy of Sciences, Lindbergh Foundation, National Wildlife Federation, Sigma Xi, Barnard College, and the Society of Women Geographers.

Taken this from national geographic i love this woman!! she is the perfect picture of what i really wanna do and who i wanna be, when i read about her works, i have a thought that this is what an oceanographer does, for people out there who’s questioning about that *i’m not a good example*

Who You??

Should i write something?? it’s been a while, it’s not like nothing happens, i just try to play it cool ha! but believe me i’m still an over-thinking girl

Never mind, G-Dragon said “I will run free, till this road ends”, this sentence really fits me. I mean i know i still don’t feel that kinda freedom now, i’m still scared of many things, it keeps me away from freedom, but i try real hard to life free, living my way. I talk too often about freedom right? i’m obsessed with it! it’s like i’m trying to unleash myself *here i go again, talking rubbish* kkkkk

You know, the reason why i love GD so much is that he shows me what freedom really is. I mean forget about all the talents he has, everybody knows them very well. I love the feeling when i see him perform on stage, both on TV and concert, small and big stage. I feel like he truly loves what he’s doing, giving all of his energy into every stage, that feeling when you don’t care about anything and just having fun for the moment, such a good feeling right?! The other thing is that he does what he says, you can check him in every interview, you will find out that he always tries to find a way to be the best version of himself and encourages his fans to do the same.

This is not a blind love i guess, to love him this much! I just take the positive feeling and energy from him. Well, to compare myself to him is a bit ridiculous, but sometimes i think i’m left behind, i mean we’re the same age, i’m lacking too much hahaha

But i believe there will be a day when i live my life to the fullest confidently, so i can give some positive energy to people around me. Still from away from that, i’ll try harder :’)

When you read a book, what you see are black squiggles on pulped wood or, increasingly, dark pixels on a pale screen. To transform these icons into characters and events, you must imagine. And when you imagine, you create. It’s in being read that a book becomes a book, and in each of a million different readings a book becomes one of a million different books.
