11 of 2013’s worst natural disasters

How is it that I heard about maybe 4 of these disasters?
Can I blame it on being in the army?

An image came to mind some time ago.

I was in the middle of a two day drive, miles from the ocean, when an image appeared and simply wouldn’t go away.

I spent the last few months planning, upgrading my underwater gear and waiting until the weather was right until I tried to capture it.

On sunset I waded into the ocean, steadied the tripod, held my breath while pressing the shutter and thirty seconds later an image appeared on the screen.

I hated it.

It was so close to what I had been imagining I was surprised, but it was boring to shoot - and I was already bored of looking at it.

Defeated, I walked to the shallows, holding the tripod in a way that the underwater housing was upside down bouncing while I walked. I mindlessly pressed the shutter button - a silent protest to what the tripod represented - and the resulting image was more interesting to me than what I had set out to capture. 

Thirty minutes after the sun sets.

Free all the reporters, in general. Also, probably stop killing them.

Science Rap B.A.T.T.L.E.S. Bring Hip-Hop Into The Classroom

"Modern-day rappers — all they talk about is money, and all these unnecessary and irrelevant topics," says Victoria Richardson, a freshman at Bronx Compass High School. Richardson’s rhymes tackle a much less-popular subject: DNA.

Richardson and her teammates were finalists at the Science Genius B.A.T.T.L.E.S. (Bring Attention to Transforming Teaching, Learning and Engagement in Science) competition, where she faced off against other science rappers from nine different New York public schools.

"Science Genius is about harvesting the power of urban youth culture," saysChristopher Emdin, a professor of education at Columbia University’s Teacher’s College who created the program. “Once they are able to incorporate the arts and their culture into the science content, they take it and they run with [it].”

Wu-Tang’s Bonnaroo sign language interpreter is pretty great, but we’ll always be partial to Lydia Callis.

Ahaahhaaahaha this is incredible! If I signed rap I’d probably do it like that
