She draws inspiration from the image, seeing flurries...

  Tiana Parker, a young girl of seven, was cute as a button when she marched off to school this morning in Tulsa. She looked spick-and-span in her uniform, and her hair was aligned in perfect dreadlocks with a big pink bow on top. Tiana's father Terrance is a barber who, in his own words, "[takes] pride in [his] kids looking nice."  But Tiana left school this morning in tears. Why?

  Growing up, Jane Goodall was my absolute heroine. Listening to her speak about her experiences with chimpanzees was so incredibly moving to me as a little girl; I felt that the creatures she had lived with were the embodiments of pure generosity, emotional truth, and tenderness. Luckily, a few rare and special photographs can capture the depth of the humanity of species like the chimpanzee and others who share so much of our DNA.    Photographer Graham McGeorge’s work comprises such rare images.

  These days, celebrity sex tapes pop up all over with a surprising amount of ease. Topless (and bottomless, as was the case with a certain N.Y.C. mayoral candidate) photos can be found leaked all over Twitter, sending the Internet into a frenzy. Videos can cause even more of a stir. Some people have even turned the release of their more, er, intimate moments into an empire. I’m looking at you, Kim Kardashian. But a sex tape that gives the viewer important information about an international crisis?...
