A business plan on yourself
I attended a business planning seminar in the 1980's taught by a Harvard professor when I was working with American Express. I asked him for career advice and he asked if I'd done a business plan on myself. If I was learning to do it for companies why not on myself? I thought this was a great idea so wrote a 5 year plan on myself (in handwriting before computers) and it was a great guide to my life and career. The plan included this chart on my planned income, expenses, savings and investments. There are now FinTech platforms for aspects of this plan.

A bin than cleans the sea
Seabin is an Australian invention. It's a floating debris interception device designed to be installed in the water of marinas, yacht clubs, ports and any water body with a calm environment and services available. It's installed in a specific debris problem area in the marina on a floating dock and the wind and the currents bring the debris directly to the Seabin. The catch bag can hold up to 12Kgs of debris. Trials of these Seabins are being conducted around the world, most recently in the UK at Portsmouth Harbour. https://www.engadget.com/2017/10/11/seabin-portsmouth-harbour/
