And it is said that the princess returned to her father’s kingdom. That she reigned there with justice and a kind heart for many centuries. That she was loved by her people. And that she left behind small traces of her time on earth, visible only to those who know where to look.

In honor of this season’s amazingly bizarre American Horror Story: Coven, Vulture has created some crazy cool tarot cards that you can include in your next reading/secretly carry around with you EVERYWHERE. Behold in their glory below:
GoldieBlox, the super cool engineering toy set for girls (and the brainchild of TEDxPSU speaker Debbie Sterling), just released this amazing ad, which combines the Beastie Boys, a Rube Goldberg machine, and some dancing to show why there needs to be more diversity in the toys presented to girls. Not everything needs to be pink and princess-y!
We love this ad almost as much as we love Debbie’s talk, “Inspiring the next generation of female engineers,” which you should totally watch right now and learn why she decided to start GoldieBlox (Hint: It’s to help girls learn that they can be engineers, despite what anyone tells them.) Well — right after you watch these girls engineer one amazing backyard machine.
The “romantic-sexual/platonic” love dichotomy leaves no room for the real emotional nuances people experience in their attachments, and I think that it often causes us to live with simplified relationships not because we want to or because we have simple desires and feelings but because we have no experience, cultural context, or language to accommodate a complex social life or set of relationships. This is why language is so important. This is why words and labels matter. How can you have the kind of relationships you want with anyone, if you don’t even have the words to accurately express how you feel? Hell, half the time, people don’t even understand their own feelings and relationship desires because what they feel is not simple at all, but the only relationship framework they know makes everything seem simple and clear cut: romance and sex go together, friendship is separate from both of those things, couplehood/primary partnership is exclusive to romance and sex, etc.
But if we are to accept the possibilities and realities of asexual romance, primary nonsexual/nonromantic love, nonromantic sex and sexual friendship, romantic (nonsexual) friendship, queerplatonic nonsexual relationships and sexual relationships, etc…. we have to drop this way of thinking and speaking about relationships and love in a romantic-sexual/platonic dichotomous way. None of those “complex” relationships fit into that model"
20th November is Transgender Remembrance Day to remember our brothers and sisters who have been killed through transphobia and hate around the world and in our communities
Four years ago, photographer Jimmy Nelson set off on a quest to visit and photograph 31 of the world’s unique tribes. He became enamored with learning about cultures so unlike his own — cultures he fears will soon die out — with traditions, rituals, and customs he believes all the world should know.
"I wanted to witness their time-honoured traditions, join in their rituals and discover how the rest of the world is threatening to change their way of life forever," he says in a mission statement for his project, Before They Pass Away. “Most importantly, I wanted to create an ambitious aesthetic photographic document that would stand the test of time. A body of work that would be an irreplaceable ethnographic record of a fast disappearing world.”
In a high-energy, captivating talk at TEDxAmsterdam, Jimmy tells stories from this years-long project that has had him travel to the “edges of the world,” and taught him how to better understand the world, and the people, around him. Above, some of his work showcased in his talk, including his photos of the Samburu people, the Kazakhs, the Mursi, and the Rabari.
Art isn’t just meant to look pretty – it can also be used to transfer ideas and messages. Polish illustrator Pawel Kuczynski’s grim and sharply satirical works are a perfect example of art that speaks volumes.
