This American Life's webisode "Nobody's Family Is Going to Change" shares the story of Dusty and Honey, "two sisters, now in their seventies, who have preserved the same relationship they had as girls...for better or worse." They are not twins, but share identical tastes. They have the same make-up wigs, and eat the same food. "[They] make sure that one never has a larger portion than the other. And one will only have a treat if the other is there to share it with her."

After a year long run at the Chinese American Museum in Los Angeles, the Dreams Deferred exhibit has come to a close. The piñatas are now home and I'm pretty excited to have all five of these guys back.

highlights from "Why the ‘Native’ Fashion Trend Is Pissing Off Real Native Americans "

"...Other bloggers are speaking up, because it’s bringing up all the ways Native Americans have been exploited and misrepresented in mainstream culture. "

“The issue now is not only who gets to represent Native Americans,” Metcalfe says, “but also who gets to profit.”

"To me, it just feels like one more thing non-Natives can take from us—like our land, our moccasins, our headdresses, our beading, our religions, our names, our cultures weren’t enough? " -Adrienne K.

"And Ke$ha and other young scenesters seem to think there’s nothing wrong with donning copies of sacred headgear for partying at summer rock festivals like Coachella."

“There’s the whole economic stratification issue of it,” Metcalfe writes. “These designs are expensive. The new Portland Collection ranges from $48 for a tie to over $700 for a coat. The Opening Ceremony collection was equally, if not more, costly. It almost feels like rubbing salt in the wound, when poverty is rampant in many Native communities, to say ‘Oh, we designed this collection based on your culture, but you can’t even afford it!’”

"someday we'll meet beyond the stars and it'll be away from here"

Every now and then I listen to that last voicemail  you left. I think you're one of the only people that can say, "Hey, pick up your phone,"  and still make me want to return your calls.  You always had that special something about you. I love you Deejay.

Given the vast distances in astronomy, even fast moving objects will not appear to change their appearance in a human lifetime.

"Given the vast distances in astronomy, even fast moving objects will not appear to change their appearance in a human lifetime. Typically. A recent spectacular exception to this, however, is the supersonic jet in the star forming Herbig Haro 47. HH 47 is so close -- and the jets are moving so fast -- that images from the Hubble Space Telescope from 1994 to 2008 have been combined into a time-lapse movie that actually shows a powerful jet expanding. Visible above, jets of plasma extending over 10,000 times the Earth-Sun distance shoot out from a forming star at speeds in excess of 150 kilometers per second. Studying how these jets evolve gives clues not only to how the star in HH 47 is forming, but how stars like our Sun formed billions of years ago. HH 47 is located about 1,500 light years away toward the constellation of Sails of a Ship (Vela). "
