NASA Documents Climate Change In New App
If news stories of extreme storms, droughts and natural disasters don’t seem to have an effect on spreading awareness and concern about climate change, perhaps it’s time to consider a different medium. NASA has done just that, with its Images of Change app. No, it’s not Candy Crush or yet another way you can broadcast yourself to the virtual world; it’s a wake up call.

Charity Provides Cancer Patients With A Few Fun, Worry-Free Moments With Wacky Makeovers
When one is diagnosed with cancer, a sense of humor and general lightheartedness–both of which are key to coping with the illness–are often the first to vanish.

Transported away from their ailments if only for a moment, the women featured in this pictorial spread remind us of the restorative power of humor. You can see more makeovers at Laughing Squid.
