    "Then Bubba said something I won’t ever forget.

    'I wanna go home.'

    Bubba was my best good friend. And even I know that ain’t something you find just around the corner. Bubba was gonna be a shrimpin’ boat captain, but instead he died right by that river there in Vietnam.

    That’s all I have to say about that.”

    Los seres humanos no nacen para siempre el día en que sus madres los alumbran, sino que la vida los obliga a parirse a sí mismos una y otra vez.

    - Gabriel García Márquez (March 6, 1927-April 17th, 2014)

    [human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves]

    Map of the World by Natural Skin Color

    i’m really dumbfounded that i never realized skin colour is literally just caused by being closer to or farther from the equator and the resulting sun exposure and skin darkening

    actually, its an adaptation. natural selection. people with darker skin are selected for in areas near the equator, where the melanin that causes the darker color protects them from radiation and protects them from skin cancer and other health defects, and because they are healthier they can pass on that trait more. people near the poles have lighter skin because it allows them absorb more of the limited sunlight to convert to vitamin d. 


    Evolution of melanin levels based on geographical location.

    How a Ghanaian entrepreneur turned his “impossible” dream into a reality.

    A few years ago, Fred Deegbe was working as a banker - a profession that left him somewhat unsatisfied with the lack of impact he was having in the world. After buying a pair of Oxford wingtips at a store to impress a friend, Deegbe began to wonder if such high quality luxury shoes could indeed be manufactured in Ghana.

    Despite the negative feedback he received from those who believed that such shoes couldn’t be made in Ghana, Deegbe wasn’t dissuaded from his idea of starting a shoe company in Accra. With no knowledge of the shoemaking industry, and armed only with passion and his gut feeling, Deegbe teamed up with friend Vijay Manu (pictured right) to start their luxury shoe and accessories company ‘Heel the World’, based in Accra.

    Although the shoes are all handmade in Ghana, the goods used to make them are imported from places like the United States and Italy putting the price range of the shoes between $200-$400. This is Deegbe’s greatest challenge: proving that the shoes are worth the money they command.

    To hear Deegbe tell his start-up story in his own words, watch this clip from CNN.


    Angela Strassheim - Evidence

    Evidence is a group of photographs taken at homes where familial homicides have occurred. Long after the struggles have ended in these spaces, despite the cleaning, repainting and subsequent re-habitation of these homes, the “Blue Star” solution activates the physical memory of blood through its contact with the remaining DNA proteins on the walls. The black and white images are long exposures – from ten minutes to one hour – with minimal ambient night light pouring in from the crevices of windows and doors, capturing the physical presence of blood as a lurid glow.

    This is such a profoundly moving set of artworks
