"If I hadn't been told I was garbage, I wouldn't have learned how to show people I'm talented. And if everyone had always laughed at my jokes, I wouldn't have figured out how to be so funny.

Tandas, or susus as they are more commonly known in African countries, are how African immigrant women afford those big purchases, like down payments on a car or vacations.

Imagine starting an article with "What is Russia?"
Some essential background on the country, its fight against Boko Haram, the larger forces shaping the conflict (oil is a big one), and the history behind it all.

too cute
Whether they are delighted or disgusted, kids have a way of making the cutest faces to express how they feel. That's especially true in "Pucker," a video from photographers David Wile and April Maciborka that shows how much babies like —
