Shirazeh Houshiary's Warped Window at London’s Church of St. Martin
East Window is an installation created by Iranian artistShirazeh Houshiary, is located in the east window at Church of St. Martin in the Fields (Trafalgar Square, London). Reminiscent of a cross, the horizontal and vertical lines move towards a central opening that allows light to pass through. While it may seem a bit radical for a neoclassical church built in 1726, it still seems strangely appropriate as it reminds us that churches can serve as a portal to a higher power.
The original window was destroyed during the air raids of WWII and the constantly-lit portal at the center of the new design reminds us that while everything changes, there is still a light at the end of the tunnel, even at the darkest of times.

Jewish And Arab People Posing Together Online, ‘Refusing To Be Enemies’
In the midst of news about the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, some people are posting photos online for an international social media campaign on Facebook and Twitter, with the hashtag, #JewsAndArabsRefuseToBeEnemies.
I’ve always believed that politicians create wars. Most human beings on this planet are good and want to live in peace. Thank you to whoever put this beautiful photoset together!
^^^^ this… Politicians make wars.
remember there is a spider that can spin a web thick enough to stop a train, and scientists have figured out how to record our dreams so we can re watch them. u probably have a couple of mongolian war lord atoms in u and a hummingbird can recall every single flower it has visited. there is so much to know and find out if we keep on living. u can do it friends :)
After she and Lily snuck into a production of Chicago, Roxanne had sequins in her eyes. She wanted to be a rising starlet like her namesake, all pluck and grit, with the world watching her every eye flutter.

”Shut up, Fred.”)
It was about the glamour. Life at Hogwarts was so drab. The only change of pace was a weekend at Hogsmeade again and everything screamed twelfth-century Britain from the decor to the food to its long-term residents; they were literally stuck in the middle ages. It needed someone—someone better than James or Fred and their lame stunts that were only funny to themselves—to shake out the cobwebs and bring some real razzle dazzle.
Roxanne would end up forming five new Hogwarts clubs by her seventh year, including a thespian troupe and an interior decoration taskforce. But her greatest achievement was from that very first year, when she and Lily snuck into the kitchens and dumped a cup of wormwood into the soup. From Groshawk’s Guide to Herbology: “wormwood imbalance will befuddle a mind’s words quickly, often to musical results.”
At lunch, the annual flash mob of Hogwarts was born.
Japanese artist Azuma Makoto recently ventured to Nevada’s Black Rock Desert to launch a 50-year-old pine bonsai and a colorful floral arrangement into space. The mission, titled Exobotanica, aimed to explore the transformation of the plants into exobiota (extraterrestrial life) in outer space.
