Good things happening in the world of aviation, courtesy +NASA! :)
 
Could our research save commercial airlines billions? Yes, thanks to new green-related aeronautics technology, which could cut airline fuel use in half, pollution by 75 percent and noise to nearly one-eighth of today’s levels. More: http://go.nasa.gov/1INmpKQ

"It is absolutely men’s responsibility to fight sexism too. And as spouses and partners and boyfriends, we need to work hard and be deliberate about creating truly equal relationships."

Photographically inclined
Introduction
Hi! I'm Matt. I make photographs. I love all sorts of photography--landscape, pets, wildlife. Some events. But my primary love is portraiture. Glamour, boudoir, dance, lifestyle/environmental. For me, photography is about delving into the personality, strength, vulnerability, and desires of the person in front of my lens and memorializing those traits in lovingly prepared photographs.
