The author of this article makes a very important point!  You do know that the IMF is U.S. taxpayer funded, so why are we paying to promote destruction of other countries economies as well as our own?  Did you also know that Senator Bernie Sanders is the ONLY candidate for the presidency who is cognizant of this?   #Bernie  2016!

I aint buying it.  Buyer Beware.  If it is too good to be true, it probably is.
 There is not such thing as an honest politician.

This single-celled organism has evolved its own giant "eye" - complete with a basic lens, cornea and retina.

"The light-sensing “retina” at the back of the eye was made up of plastids, structures normally involved in photosynthesis. The team extracted genetic material from inside the plastids and found it rich in algal DNA. The team suspects that at some point during evolution, a warnowiid ancestor gobbled up some algae and adopted its photosynthetic equipment. When the organism later abandoned photosynthesis for the predatory life, it repurposed its light-capturing plastids into a light-sensing organ."

A rare sea creature can teach us about the eye's evolution.

Some neat photos in this photoset.
Modern media represents women narrowly: passive, delicate and feminine—a woman in military clothing is practically a visual impossibility. In this portrait series, women don vintage officer uniforms, thus questioning the highly masculine image of military glory and highlighting the proud independence of modern women.

Give Google’s DeepStereo algorithm two images of a scene and it will synthesize a third image from a different point of view.
