    Eye-opening photos of Americans lying in a week of their own trash

    The average person in the United States produces four pounds of garbage per person per day. Collectively, we produce millions of tons of trash each week, adding up to over 220 million tons each year. And that number is growing. Seeing that reality in focus through Gregg Segal’s work puts our country’s trash crisis into sharp relief.

    Here’s How The Media Should Be Talking About Fat People But Don’t Have The Courage To

    When was the last time you saw people of all sizes in the media? Unless it was a commercial promoting just that, uhhh — try never! Bullying based on weight is a bad cultural habit that’s still alive in the mainstream. Diverse shapes should be celebrated, not maligned. The people in this campaign are proudly showcasing their beauty for all to see. Hopefully their hard work helps others to do the same. See more here.

    Utah school photoshops girls’ yearbook photos to show less skin

    At least two dozen girls at Wasatch High School — no boys, obviously — had sleeves added, necklines raised or tattoos covered, ostensibly for modesty reasons, via Photoshop. While the whole modesty argument is debatable in itself, many of the studentsat the Heber City, Utah, school seemed most irritated because the school seemed to apply its post-production dress code arbitrarily; in one case, two girls were wearing the same top, and only one photo was altered.

    Before We Use Certain Words, We Should All Look At These Pictures. They Might Make Us Think Twice.

    It’s not always as easy to see the lasting effects of verbal abuse. Domestic violence, child abuse, and bullying can all leave emotional scars that aren’t visible. These powerful images give us something to think about.

    I’d Think These 10 Images Were Really Cool. Except They Could Become Reality, And That’s Just Scary.

    Climate change has been a hot topic — no pun intended — and it gets more concerning as new information comes out. Two groups of scientists recently said a section of the West Antarctic ice sheet is melting, and it cannot be stopped. Ultimately, they said, the sea level could rise 10 feet or more over the next few centuries. 

    What’s 10 feet, right? Well, to put it in perspective, take a look at these illustrations of 10 well-known locations across the United States. This is what they’d look like if sea level rose 12 feet. Kind of worrisome, right?
