As we blogged yesterday, Malala Yousafzai, the 14-year-old activist from Pakistan, was shot in the head and neck after members of the Taliban held up the van she was riding home from school in. The bullet barely missed Malala’s brain, and other students also suffered injuries.  The shooters have been identified, but the Taliban is still promising to kill Malala if she survives.  She has been especially active in advocating for girls’ education, something that the Taliban wants to end.  Doctors were able to dislodge the...

   I’ve always been a hot sauce kind of girl, so when I came across a recipe for homemade sriracha, I knew I had found my 2012 Halloween treat. Sriracha is the perfect alternative to cookies, cakes, and candy. Give something to your friends that they won’t already have entire boxes of, and that won’t go stale. A baby jar of homemade hot sauce truly is a gift that keeps on giving—the peppers will keep kicking long after the meal is done, and the potent sauce...

"I want to get my education and I want to become a doctor," she added in the 2009 feature. But this Tuesday, the National Peace Award for Youth recipient, esteemed BBC blogger, and two-time Times documentary star paid a high price for her bravery. According to Al Jazeera, the now 14-year-old was riding...
