An embryo in the mother’s womb, by Lennart Nilsson.

In the five decades since Lennart Nilsson’s portrait of an 18-week-old human fetus appeared on the cover of the April 30, 1965, issue of LIFE he constantly kept amazing us with breathtaking photos of unborn life.

Even today, so many years after Nilsson’s incredible pictures of “the drama of life before birth” first mesmerized and astounded millions of people all over the globe, the photos he made — and those that, at the age of 90, he continues to make — remain among the most thrilling compositions of art and science the world has ever seen.

The New York City medical examiner announced on Friday that a Staten Island man died from a chokehold and the compression of his chest by police officers as they arrested him last month for allegedly peddling untaxed cigarettes.

An autopsy found that the manner of death for Eric Garner, 43, was homicide, the medical examiner said in a statement. While the report found that Mr. Garner’s poor health was a contributing factor, it was not the primary cause of his death.

The New York Police Department banned the use of a chokehold more than 20 years ago. The encounter prompted Police Commissioner William J. Bratton to call for a complete review of the Police Department’s training and tactics. It has also presented Mayor Bill de Blasio with a difficult challenge as he tries to balance his support of the police with his campaign promises to reform what he had characterized as over aggressive tactics.

Mr. de Blasio released a statement shortly after the autopsy results were revealed, promising a thorough investigation.

"PALESTINIAN GIRL, YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD"

"When someone enrols in the medicine school that one of the longest schooling required profession, by the time they finish school they will be around 30-or at least on their late 20s. But not for this girl; Eqbal Asa’d is a Palestinian Muslim woman that started the Medicine school when she was just 14 years old, ‘myhijab.info’ reports. Asa’d got her Bachelor degree in Medicine with Honors and was set by the Guinness World Records as the youngest doctor in the World, according to the report. She has been signed to go to Ohio, U.S to continue her education even further and become a Pediatrician."  - Source

YOU GUYS SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. SHE IS A FEMALE, A MUSLIM AND A MINORITY. AND SHE IS THE YOUNGEST DOCTOR IN THE WORLD. 

WHY ARE WE NOT HEARING MORE ABOUT HER?

I wonder…

I work at a bank, which technically isn’t retail but it’s called “retail banking” because we basically sell accounts and stuff all day.
Typically we ask for people’s ID’s for normal stuff, like withdrawing money. I’ve been really strict about it because there has been a lot of fraud going around and I feel like it’s my job to protect people (because it is).
So this guy was trying to withdraw $1,400 which isn’t a large amount (at least, not abnormally large for a bank) but I need to see two forms of identification for it. So, naturally, I ask for his driver’s license to get the response above.
It wouldn’t have been so bad if he didn’t get mad at me for not showing him mine (because he had no business asking for it) and then throwing a pen at me.
