Prisca and Blanca Azucena – From Meet My Immigrant Mom
- The Domestic Worker’s Alliance created this awesome Tumblr: Meet my Immigrant Mom. It chronicles the real stories of motherhood, immigration, and the real stories shared by so many.
- During Wednesday night’s protest against the shooting death of Kimani Gray, the NYPD established a “Frozen Zone” which disallowed any media and granted police the right to arrest anyone regardless if they broke the law or not. The State of Exception isn’t all that exceptional.
- Scientists are pretty certain they found the Higgs-Boson particle. WE can all rest easy that they didn’t end the universe to do it.
- The Iraq War killed 106,903 Iraqi civilians. That’s roughly the population of Cambridge, Massachusetts. Go America.
- Comet Pan-STARRS is visible this week until it fades away at the end of this month. Here’s an beautiful time-lapse video of the crescent moon and comet setting together over the Verdugo Hills outside of Los Angeles.
