It’s blood.  NYC artist, Jordan Eagles, works solely with gallons upon gallons of blood obtained from a slaughterhouse.  By manipulating the blood through heating, burning, aging, mixing with copper, adding foreign materials, and then encasing it in plexiglass and UV resin, Jordan is able to capture an array of organic designs.  His large pieces are uncomfortably beautiful, especially when lit, the blood seems to glow against the clean white walls of a gallery.

Kigali, Rwanda, 1993
When photojournalist Betty Press lived in Africa from 1987 to 2009, she wanted to show a continent different than the one usually portrayed in the media — one of poverty, war and famine. Instead, she focused on the beauty, creativity and courage of the people.
These images are now the subject of a book, I Am Because We Are: African Wisdom In Image and Proverb, in which every photo is accompanied by a different African proverb. Press tellsWeekend Edition Sunday host Audie Cornish that the photos, along with the proverbs, celebrate life and the concept ofubuntu, the idea of living harmoniously within a community.
The book is self-published in partnership with Books for Africa. Press says it is “dedicated to the African people who were willing to share their lives with the world through her photographs.”

fuckyeahmedicalstuff:

It is essential to know how to recognize the signs of a medical emergency – because correctly interpreting and acting on these signs could potentially save the life of a loved one — or your own life — one day. Many people experience the symptoms of an emergency, such as a stroke or a heart attack, but for various reasons (such as fear), delay seeking care right away. For many medical emergencies, time is of the essence, and delays in treatment can often lead to more serious consequences.
