Photographer Ariko Inaoka first met Icelandic twins Erna and Hrefna while travelling the country photographing the landscape. She has since returned every year to take pictures of them and continues to until they are 16, documenting the way their relationship changes, as they grow older.

(…besides humans, that is)
Biologists estimate that this animal has killed half of all humans that have ever lived, and today is responsible for more than 45 million years of lost human life annually. Chances are, you’ve been attacked by one.
Meet mankind’s most pesky foe in this week’s It’s Okay To Be Smart, and find out why they prefer some prey over others, what makes them so deadly, and how today’s bioengineers are trying to stop them… if such a thing is even possible.
If only that were true! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being.

These homes are 100% sustainable AND they’re cheap to build.
They have their own greenhouses and grow crops year-round no matter the climate.
The entire roof of the Earthship funnels rain water to a cistern, which then pumps it to sinks and sowers. Then the used water (grey water) is pumped to the plants. After being cleaned by the plants, the water is pumped into the bathrooms for the toilets which makes it ‘black water’ which is pumped to outside gardens for non-edible plants.
The constant temperature in the home is 70°. The large greenhouse windows always face south to heat up the thermal mass throughout the day.
Solar panels on the roof and optional wind turbines provide the Earthship with all the power it needs.
They are easy to build. One couple in Canada built a 3-story Earthship by themselves in 3 months. They didn’t hire help nor use expensive equipment.
The most basic Earthship is $7,000.
IT’S MADE OF RECYCLED MATERIAL.
