The Isolator by Hugo Gernsback July 1925 issue of Science and Invention. The Isolator was designed to help focus the mind, particularly when reading and writing. The helmet not only eliminated all outside noise, limited sight to just one line of text at a time, but it also pumped in oxygen. (via Kitschy Kitschy Coo)

Many documentaries at this year’s Maragret Mead Film Festival feature stories of climate change from around the world. One of these is The Seeds of Time, which details the mission of the Svalbard Global Seed Vault.

Set deep inside a mountain on the island of Svalbard, Norway, this vault has achieved a kind of celebrity status both for its sleek, spy-novel-worthy, modernist design—and for the contents frozen within. Stored in this remote location high in the Arctic Circle are the seeds of numerous varieties of the world’s food plants and related wild species. 

Watch the trailer for this film, screening October 26 at the Museum, and read more about this documentary and others that grapple with the issues of climate change

So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.

Stay woke

Is this true?

Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.



Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST

To Sleep, Perchance to Dream                                                     

As demonstrations in Hong Kong stretch well into its second week, we take a look back at protesters as they caught up on sleep throughout the occupied sites in Admiralty, Central, Causeway Bay and Mong Kok.

Hong Kong protest leaders on Oct. 8 said they will consider pulling out of discussions should the government continue to ignore their key political demands.

Student protesters are threatening to bring back the crowds that had paralyzed parts of central Hong Kong last week, after days of talks eased tensions in the streets. As the discussions hit a stumbling block, pressure increased on Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying who yesterday had to refute a report that said he received money secretly from an Australian company.
