The Big Bang: Crash Course Big History #1

In which John Green, Hank Green, and Emily Graslie teach you about, well, everything. Big History is the history of everything. We’re going to start with the Big Bang, take you right through all of history (recorded and otherwise), and even talk a little bit about the future. It is going to be awesome. In the awe-inspiring sense of the word awesome. In this episode, we walk you through the start of everything: The Big Bang. We’ll look at how the universe unfolded at its very beginning, and how everything in the universe that we know today came into being. So that’s kind of a big deal, right?

"I’m from New York City. I had never even heard of the word ‘mushing’ before I covered the Yukon Quest,” Reportage photographer Katie Orlinsky tells National Geographic’s Proof blog in a recent interview. “But as soon as I watched the first dog team come into a checkpoint with their legs pounding on the sparkling snow and their paws covered in those funny neon-colored booties, I was hooked.”

Katie was first exposed to the world of Alaskan sled dogs when she covered Yukon Quest, a 1000-mile dogsled race from Whitehorse, Yukon to Fairbanks, Alaska. Later this summer, she visited kennels in Eureka, Juneau and elsewhere to see how dogs pend the off-season, and explore the bond between musher and dog. Read the rest of the interview and see more of Katie’s photos on National Geographic’s website.

Katie Orlinsky is a photojournalist from New York City. She regularly works for the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and various non-profit organizations around the world. She received the Alexia Foundation First Place Student Grant in 2012 and the POYI Emerging Vision Incentive award in 2011 for the body of work “Innocence Assassinated: Living in Mexico’s Drug War.

"

At the end of each day, I write an “atomic sentence,” a single statement that summarizes the most vital lesson about that day.

At times where I flail, fumble, and otherwise seek a signpost, these sentences have helped — personal lifelines indicating a larger story. Each day, an atomic unit in a living network.

"

- I love Liz Danzico's idea of ending each day with an “atomic sentence,” inspired by Richard Feynman’s one sentence to be passed on to the next generation.  (via explore-blog)

Psychologists say that “trying not to think about it” will only make things worse because suppressed thoughts, cravings, or emotions fight back and become stronger. A more successful method is to accept these feelings and find other distractions. Source
