is that science gathers knowledge

faster than society gathers wisdom.” -Isaac Asimov

Rare Octopus

Rare Octopus With Completely Transparent Head Caught by Blackwater Photographer, Taipei-based photographer Wu Yung-sen. On a recent blackwater dive—unable to see the bottom and surrounded by impenetrable space—he chanced upon a rare larval Wunderpus octopus. A stunning image captures the encounter; it shows the delicate and transparent baby octopus encasing its own brilliantly red brain, a sight few ever witness in the wild.

care for all life. -James Cromwell

A Home Again

A shell,
much like a human heart,
will change over time,
growing in size
and even its capacity
to hold different inhabitants.
And sometimes
even the whole ones,
and the beautiful ones,
and the perfectly useful ones,
find themselves
empty and discarded.
And so,
I throw them back into the waters,
always,
with a wish and a prayer,
almost an incantation, really,
because of the number of times
I’ve done this ritual from the shoreline,
in the hopes that some being
will one day see it for what it is,
know just how to get inside,
and by doing so,
will make this empty vessel
a home again.

America is a Gun

England is a cup of tea.
France, a wheel of ripened brie.
Greece, a short, squat olive tree.
America is a gun.

Brazil is a football on the sand.
Argentina, Maradona’s hand.
Germany, an oompah band.
America is a gun.

Holland is a wooden shoe.
Hungary, a goulash stew.
Australia, a kangaroo.
America is a gun.

Japan is a thermal spring.
Scotland is a highland fling.
Oh, better to be anything
than America as a gun.

Facebook and Twitter should "take immediate steps" against vaccine misinformation as efforts are underway to vaccinate Americans against COVID-19, 12 state attorneys general said in a letter to the two companies.

The officials urged Facebook and Twitter to "identify and enforce" their terms of service to reduce misleading information about vaccines, CBS News reported.

"A small group of individuals use your platforms to downplay the dangers of COVID-19 and spread misinformation about the safety of vaccines," the attorneys general wrote. "These individuals lack medical expertise and are often motivated by financial interests."

The attorneys general of Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania and Virginia signed the letter, CBS News reported.

"Anti-vaxxer" accounts on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter reach more than 59 million followers, the group said, citing a recent report by the Center for Countering Digital Hate. The attorneys general added that anti-vaccine social media accounts target individuals of color and Black communities in particular, who have been hit harder by the virus and whose vaccination rates lag behind other groups, CBS News reported.
