stop.sea.slavery : Please do a story about the slaughter of dolphins called the cove!!!!
nancy_ellis : Why would they use such an ugly backdrop .... Smh @ruby_ceniceros_ad_astra
casehennan : @ryankuper @veganbeastmode yeah, I deleted my comment right after posting it. Didn't feel right about posting it, and then read the rest of the thread. Probably should be careful using sarcasm in that manner in regards to sensitive subjects in the future.
ryankuper : @casehennan Right on. Yeah, sarcasm gets lost a lot, but you're right about time/place of its use. All the best!
leediaz : @dicquiloan follow npr's profile link for the other profiles. Interface was cool and the profiles were interesting.😘

Vanessa Messner is 40. She's a vet and a mom. And she's been homeless. The V.A. plans to end homelessness among veterans by 2015. But how does a veteran like Messner end up homeless? Learn more through the link in our profile. (Photo by @dpgilkey/NPR)
bitesized_love : I don't think this can be corrected by 2015...optimistic but unrealistic goal
bitesized_love : Good. Luck to her and her family, pray for the best
izumi_pau : @toshimisan
sheenaemack : @jerseygirl06 smh nuts
mel3081 : @npr is there a full article I can read concerning this issue? I'm writing a paper on the homeless and would be interested on the goal The V.A. Is planning. Thanks!
adeystips : @npr these are such heartbreaking stories.. In NYC I come across homeless veterans all the time. When I contacted the VA on behalf of one veteran I came across a couple of years ago, I was told about a program to specifically help homeless veterans and I've been referring people there since. Considering our defense budget, it's a shame that this happens.. I pray that they all get the assistance they deserve..
4thecetaceans : @npr please cover the taiji dolphins slaughters

The Washington Coliseum, where the Beatles played their first gig stateside, has seen better days. After 10 years as a transfer station for Waste Management, it's now used as a parking garage. The building's exterior shows signs of nature returning despite being in a rapidly changing D.C. neighborhood. #nprcities The Cities Project is back with some stories about nature encroaching on our urban environment. We notice it when there's a hurricane, but it happens in small ways, too. We want your photos and stories of nature reclaiming space in your community, in ways big or small. It could be in an empty lot gone to seed, a vacant house full of bats or a flower pushing its way up through a crack in your balcony or sidewalk. Plant or animal stories welcome. Tag your image with #nprcities – we may share your contribution on the radio and NPR.org. (Photo Credit: @jameswhuclark/NPR)

The Scottish independence referendum has inspired like-minded activists around the world.

At a school for husbands in Chadakori, Niger, community leaders gather to discuss family planning topics like contraceptives and spacing out the number of children. Read the full story on NPR's new global health and development blog, Goats and Soda, at npr.org. Photo by @ronhaviv_vii
awwkatz : @catsclamation check it out!
amysellers6 : They all look too old for family planning issues to matter to them anymore.
suzannestegen : Uh, @amysellers6 and anyone else who thinks this, those little swimmers may be fewer, but the never stop attempting to "be fruitful and multiply" which may be the point.
lgs929 : @mommy2irishtwins very Stevenson
amysellers6 : Good point. You know what, men need to have their own form of menopause. Might solve more than a few problems in this world.
mommy2irishtwins : @lgs929 I think we will forever be talking about Stevenson
tallgrrl : No one who is able to still have sex is "too old" to be concerned about family planning and contraception. It's 2014. Be Educated.
