Chilling Photos From the Front Lines of the Ebola Outbreak

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa has left much of the region quarantined and inaccessible, making the tragedy seem all the more distant. It’s only through the work of photographers like Pete Muller that we can glimpse what life is like for communities struggling to cope with the deadliest outbreak since the virus was discovered in 1976.

Since its appearance in Guinea in May, the contagion has spread to neighboring Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria. More than 3,700 people have been infected so far, and about half have died. Muller covered the outbreak for the Washington Post in the Kailahun District of Sierra Leone, the region of the country hardest hit. His gripping photographs of burial teams, armed checkpoints and villages living with the virus in their midst put a human face on what is, for many, a seemingly abstract and distant story.

“People are in a state of serious fear in these affected areas as is, and then you have deaths,” he says. “There’s frustration, too, in the fact that the government of Sierra Leone has mandated that all deaths that aren’t clearly attributable to some particular cause be treated as potential Ebola cases. In some instances, these burial teams are being called to go through all of these very cumbersome and isolating procedures to get rid of a body, and you’ll have members of the family or members of the community that are quite certain this person didn’t die from Ebola.”

"Catch of the Day" Campaign Presents Trash Fresh from the Sea

To bring attention to the issue of ocean pollution, the Surfrider Foundation teamed up with advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi LA to create the “Catch of the Day” campaign. Actual trash collected from beaches around the U.S. was re-packaged as food and left on display at farmer’s markets to create a impactful, site-specific message. By addressing consumers at the point of purchase, the “Catch of the Day” reminds seafood buyers that ocean pollution isn’t someone else’s problem; rather, it impacts individuals on a daily basis. Some of the repackaged items include cigarette butts from Venice Beach, California; aerosol cans from South Padre Beach, Texas; and condoms from Newport Beach, California. While environmental campaigns often emphasize shock value above all else, the Surfrider project tempers startling subjects with a restrained presentation and refined target audience.

Have you ever noticed the refraction of light in a cup of coffee?

The envelope of light rays reflected or refracted by a curved surface is called a caustic (from the Latin causticus, “burning”); more concrete a catacaustic in case of reflection, and a diacaustic in case of refraction. The caustic is a curve or surface to which each of the light rays is tangent. In case of a circle, the resulting shape is a cardioid.

Wolfram MathWorld provides a list of famous catacaustics.
Rainbows are familiar examples of caustics as well!

Muslim woman covered the yellow star of her Jewish neighbour with her veil on the streets of Sarajevo in 1941 

Human beings are members of a whole; in creation of one essence and soul. If one member is afflicted with pain, other members uneasy will remain. If you have no sympathy for human pain, the name of human you cannot retain. - Saadi

middleeasternpoetry:

The Earth is closing on us pushing us through the last passage and we tear off our limbs to pass through. The Earth is squeezing us. I wish we were its wheat so we could die and live again. I wish the Earth was our mother so she’d be kind to us. Where should we go after the last frontiers? Where should the birds fly after the last sky? Where should the plants sleep after the last breath of air? We will write our names with scarlet steam. We will cut off the hand of the song to be finished by our flesh. We will die here, here in the last passage. Here and here, our blood will plant its olive tree. - Mahmoud Darwish
