Couple Spend 20 Years Replanting A Destroyed 4 Million Tree Rainforest

Sebastião Salgado returned home to Brazil in 1994 after spending years abroad. As a photographer, he’d just returned from a harrowing experience documenting the Rwandan genocide, expecting to find comfort in the tree-covered rainforest paradise he’d left behind.  However, when he got back to Minas Gerais, he found that the forest that had belonged to his parents had completely dried out and died due to deforestation and uncontrolled exploitation of its natural resources, especially iron ore. He and his wife acquired the land and decided to do something about it, spending the next 20 years replanting the entire forest. “The land was as sick as I was – everything was destroyed,” Salgado told the Guardian. “Only about 0.5% of the land was covered in trees. …

Stop wondering whats for dinner use the Keto Meal Plans I use

But the fact is, there is a really simple solution… Meal …

This Thread On The Things Sex Education Failed To Teach You Has Gone Mega-Viral

Sex education in the US is somewhat lacking. Since the mid-1990s, over $2 billion has been spent on abstinence-only sex education programs in the US. Trump has indicated that he would like to increase spending in this area, at the expense of sex education that informs teens about contraception and protective sex. Safe sex isn’t the only thing you’re not being taught in school, it appears, as a mega-viral thread has shown. In a thread that’s been shared well over 100,000 times, sexual health advisor Kelly Grove explains a few things about sex people don’t appear to know yet, using some interesting props you’d probably never see in school. “I went to a private school and all they taught [was] abstinence,” one user wrote on …

US briefing: Joe Biden, mass escape in Mexico and Mozambique storm

Fridays top story: Anita Hill not satisfied with apology from former vice-president. Plus, why the Green New Deal is also a new deal for public health launched his 2020 presidential campaign, the New York Times published an interview with Anita Hill, who said she was satisfied after Biden contacted her to express regret for how he handled her 1991 testimony against Clarence Thomas. Biden is already a frontrunner in primary polls but faces scrutiny over several chapters in his lengthy record, including the Thomas hearings. I will be satisfied when I know there is real change, Hill said. Wrong approach. Bidens vague centrism and his promise of a return to a pre-Trump America is really just a return to the …

Netflix canceled ‘Santa Clarita Diet’ and the fans are so mad

RIP zombie mom.Image: SAEED ADYANI / NETFLIX Netflix’s Santa Clarita Dietis dead. After three seasons, Netflix canceled the series on Friday.

Why the first-ever picture of a black hole felt like a major let down

The void is, like, kind of whatever.Image: EVENT HORIZON TELESCOPE / EPA-EFE / REX / SHUTTERSTOCK For decades, pictures from space have forced humanity to reckon with our own cosmically small insignificance. But they have nothing on today’s monumental first in space photography.  The Event Horizon Telescope captured a phenomenon so mysterious, so literally awesome that, for many years, scientists believed it would be impossible to depict: a black hole. EHT’s international group of astronomers revealed “a bright ring formed as light bends in the intense gravity around a black hole that is 6.5 billion times more massive than the Sun.” Our collective response to this historic discovery? Basically: “LOL, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.”  I’m sorry, I just found out the last message …

Security News This Week: Hackers Found a Freaky New Way to Kill Your Car

As someone who’s seen the film twice, I can tell you that the honest truth …

Leader Of Anti-Immigrant Militia Group Attacked In Jail, Lawyer Says

Larry Hopkins, 69, was in a hospital with broken ribs after being attacked on Tuesday at the Dona Ana County Detention Center in Las Cruces in southern New Mexico, attorney Kelly O’Connell said.

O’Connell said he had spoken with Hopkins by phone. O’Connell said he did not know why Hopkins had been targeted. But a spokesman for his UCP paramilitary group said he believed it was because of his activity at the border.
