A summer program at Johns Hopkins University puts high schoolers' ingenuity to the test — building bridges out of nothing but spaghetti and glue.

Bus drivers in El Salvador's capital city were told by gang members to stop driving their routes.

This yellow space is the first seasonal mini park, or parklet, in Washington, D.C. The parklet, which is available for public use until October, takes up two parking spots and brightens up the dark grays of K Street Northwest. The mini park's creators hope the new space will encourage pedestrians to hang out, while others worry about losing parking spaces. Our profile link takes you to the full story.

doorstalker_by_fotopassion : @paintersdaughter Yes!
doorstalker_by_fotopassion : @kaseycsalisbury well stated. Unfortunately I'm not surprised although irritated at the ignorance surrounding the issue.
gyacoob : @schmiffymimi your such a cunti
hhhannale : The more options for plus size the better! Lee Lee's Valise in Brooklyn is an AMAZING place to shop if you are in NYC. Family owned and all clothes designed and manufactured in the US, I would know, I work there 😉 also the "plus size designer" clip in the article is an interview with the owner, Lisa.

Secretary of State John Kerry sat down with NPR Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep to discuss the restoration of diplomatic relations with Cuba, as well as the status of a nuclear deal with Iran. Kerry defended the Obama administration's stance on both countries, and said if diplomatic relations with Cuba or a nuclear deal with Iran were scuttled — either by a future president or Congress — it would hurt the U.S. Our profile link takes you to the full story.

coastalripper : @ronaldowebb Cuba tried to nuke us in the sixties and they didn't even have nuke capability so taking it away is not a deterrent. I am just going to bid you adieu my friend because I don't have time to debate anymore.
graggle : @bmartin911 remember, we helped force them to be terrorists, and it's 2015....we should be at the point of phasing out fossil fuel based goods.

blake92376 : @bmartin911 - Seriously? You must work in the oil industry in Texas, working a low skill but high paying job. I make 6 figures in a very high skill tech job in Philadelphia.

Why do you do what you do? What is the engine that keeps you up late at night or gets you going in the morning? Where is your happy place? What stands between you and your ultimate dream? Heavy questions. One researcher believes that writing down the answers can be decisive for students. Our profile link takes you to the full story.

deliberatedtalk : I've journaled since I was 12 years old when my mom gave me my first journal for a birthday gift. I can't imagine the direction, character and outcomes my life could have taken without writing down my life as it happened, as I hoped it would be, as I planned it to be, as I executed my plans along with penning my failings and successes as well as documented when life is both joyful and painful, high and low, sorrow filled and jubilant. Writing down my life has been my life's salvation. Journaling has been for me educational, inspirational, directional, disciplining, enlightening and intimidating. I admonish all, especially young people to make a commitment to write down their life for their lifetime!

[4/4] Sara Garcia moves around photos of her son Mark that hang on her office cabinets at the Austin Independent School District, where she works as a data manager. Just four months after Mark was released from solitary confinement, he was arrested again — before his mother could help him get his medications right, find him a job or get him food stamps. Garcia visits him often at the Travis County Correctional Center. But she can't hug him, or even see him face to face. Instead, she talks to him over a video conference call. His image shows up in a small box on a computer screen. Our profile link takes you to the full story. (Credit: @juliarphoto for NPR) #prison #texas #family

[3/4] Sara Garcia stands near the Travis County Correctional Facility in Texas where her son, Mark, has spent more than 2.5 years in solitary confinement after being incarcerated at the age of 14. When Mark was released from solitary confinement, Sara also became his unofficial case manager: seeking a psychiatrist, job leads and writing out applications for food stamps.
