Some facts about Hummingbirds
Hummingbirds are unique amongst birds because of their small size (2 - 20 g or 0.07 - 0.7 oz ). 
With the exception of insects, hummingbirds have the highest metabolism rate of any animal on earth: elevated average body temperature (approx. 40° C or 104° F), rapid heart rate (up to 1,260 beats per minute), and high breathing rate.
They also have the largest brain (4.2% of the total body weight), the largest heart and the largest breast and flight muscles (30% of its total body mass) in proportion to body size than any other bird
Hummingbirds are the only living birds that can rotate its wings in a circle, allowing it to fly both forwards and backwards; fly up or down, move sideways, or hover in one spot.
Like other birds, they have no sense of smell.
Their feet are weak and are only used perching.

Nadir Tharani

Country: Tanzania

Style: Expressionist

Medium: Ink on paper

Fun Fact: He’s also an architect

Quote:

All the paintings and poems, the short and long stories, the songs and melodies, all the seminars, meetings and workshops this year and the next and the year after, all this preening and prodding will not change the world.

Paintings

A series of drawings on the arbitrary detention, harassment, beating, torture, rape and imprisonment of those who are seen as not conforming to the strictures of power – from fruit hawkers, children at school, voters, passengers, dreamers, strollers, to those who seek a more equitable life for all.

These Positions of Power, this alignment of the human body imposed by those who exert power, are postures that embody power relations in their raw form. They probably came into being with the foundation of states – though their visual depiction or representations are more apparent in recent times.

The numbering relates to Article 9 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 10 December 1948: No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

The Last Japanese Mermaids 

For nearly two thousand years, Japanese women living in coastal fishing villages made a remarkable livelihood hunting the ocean for oysters and abalone, a sea snail that produces pearls. They are known as Ama. The few women left still make their living by filling their lungs with air and diving for long periods of time deep into the Pacific ocean, with nothing more than a mask and flippers.

In the mid 20th century, Iwase Yoshiyuki returned to the fishing village where he grew up and photographed these women when the unusual profession was still very much alive. After graduating from law school, Yoshiyuki had been given an early Kodak camera and found himself drawn to the ancient tradition of the ama divers in his hometown. His photographs are thought to be the only comprehensive documentation of the near-extinct tradition in existence

Njideka Akunyili | The Beautiful Ones #1b [alternative take] & Nwantinti [along two details], both 2012.

"It was a layering of multiple interests. Obviously my love for Nigeria where I was born, my love for my life here, my love for my husband.. and just try to figure out a way the two kinda exist in a harmonious way.”

"I think of my work as capturing the very ordinary. Just normal.. everyday stuff. I think there is something beautiful and powerful in the things that happen daily. Intimate situations.. sensual situations.. these [situations] people don’t get to see. I think there is a beauty in that I’m very attracted to.. that I try to get out.”

On April 4th, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated in Memphis, TN. It was not until years later in 1999 that the truth of the mass conspiracy to murder Dr. King was proven in court. 

After four weeks of testimony and over 70 witnesses in a civil trial in Memphis, Tennessee, twelve jurors reached a unanimous verdict on December 8, 1999 after about an hour of deliberations that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated as a result of a conspiracy. In a press statement held the following day in Atlanta, Mrs. Coretta Scott King welcomed the verdict, saying , “There is abundant evidence of a major high level conspiracy in the assassination of my husband, Martin Luther King, Jr. And the civil court’s unanimous verdict has validated our belief. I wholeheartedly applaud the verdict of the jury and I feel that justice has been well served in their deliberations. This verdict is not only a great victory for my family, but also a great victory for America. It is a great victory for truth itself. It is important to know that this was a SWIFT verdict, delivered after about an hour of jury deliberation. The jury was clearly convinced by the extensive evidence that was presented during the trial that, in addition to Mr. Jowers, the conspiracy of the Mafia, local, state and federal government agencies, were deeply involved in the assassination of my husband. The jury also affirmed overwhelming evidence that identified someone else, not James Earl Ray, as the shooter, and that Mr. Ray was set up to take the blame. I want to make it clear that my family has no interest in retribution. Instead, our sole concern has been that the full truth of the assassination has been revealed and adjudicated in a court of law… My husband once said, ‘The moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends toward justice.’ To-day, almost 32 years after my husband and the father of my four children was assassinated, I feel that the jury’s verdict clearly affirms this principle. With this faith, we can begin the 21st century and the new millennium with a new spirit of hope and healing.”

New spirit of hope and healing Sister Coretta said… That was 1999. It’s 2014 and most people still don’t know their government conspires to murder leaders of color.
