I don't smoke it. OR like it, but the war on drugs isn't working out the way they want you to think it is. IT IS putting a lot of people in corporate jails / prisons. So, Those people want to keep incarcerating people as that means money for them. It's a fucked up system.

I miss you mom! Today is Melba Hecht's "Passing Day". She was both ready, and brave. She had been in a terrible car accident, bedridden for the long term, in a lot of pain, and was unlikely to recover to any sort of meaningful livelihood. This picture was taken 1945, aboard a war transport ship. I call it "Melba and the Coca-cola guy". This is one of the most interesting pictures I have even seen. I think this pic should have been made famous, and added to the national WWII archives at the Library of Congress! Truly worthy of a magazine cover!

Wasn't it Khrushchev who said that they wouldn't even have to fire a bullet?

Wow
From 250 miles above Earth, orbiting the planet at 17,500 mph aboard the International Space Station, astronaut Ricky Arnold captured this photograph of changing landscape in the heart of Madagascar. You can see drainage into the sea in the Betsiboka Estuary due to decimation of rainforests and coastal mangroves. Take a closer look: https://go.nasa.gov/2Newcwy

Would love to go here... And view the sky.
CSIRO Parkes Observatory | Australia


The Parkes Observatory (also known informally as "The Dish") is a radio telescope observatory, located 20 kilometers north of the town of Parkes, New South Wales, Australia. It was one of several radio antennas used to receive live, televised images of the Apollo 11 moon landing on July 20, 1969. Its scientific contributions over the decades led the ABC to describe it as "the most successful scientific instrument ever built in Australia" after 50 years of operation.

The Parkes Observatory is run by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) as part of the Australia Telescope National Facility (ATNF) network of radio telescopes.

Ian: "In Parkes, New South Wales, for the David Malin Awards, I was told the normal floodlighting on The Dish radio telescope would be turned off to allow a timelapse to be made for the CSIRO. I hadn't planned to shoot The Dish as many others already have, but without the excess lighting, and given I didn't find a better site I thought I should try."

Great shot
I almost didn't get this shot. I was feeling a little tired and lazy, and knew this shot would require waking at 4am, driving an hour, hiking a mile, waiting in the cold etc. My husband talked some sense into me and basically told me to suck it up. So he stayed back at the campsite with the kids while I trekked off on my own. So grateful for my husband who continues to support me, push me, and encourage even when the mom-fatigue threatens to take over. Of course, it ended up being an amazing, invigorating experience standing on this rock overlooking Moraine Lake at sunrise. There was an audible gasp from all the photographers around me when the rainbow appeared. It seemed too perfect to be true, and everyone just stood there in silence taking in the beauty of this incredible scene.
