I was scrolling through Pinterest when I saw this quote, 'Because the love of a mother starts before birth her love will endure long after death.'

Since childhood, I always wanted to represent my country abroad, wanted to become a global thinker who could contribute to Bahrain's development. But after stepping outside that exam hall, I was pretty sure I had lost my chance.

American environmentalists are probably the best of Americans. They have the scientific knowledge and interest to keep ecosystems functioning for the services they provide: clean water, clean air, and good and healthy food.

Examining the past history of spiritual abuse can provide a framework in understanding other exploitations of religious and political power today. The current threat of ISIS and radical Islam poses some similarities to the abuse of power demonstrated by the leadership of the Catholic Church.

Ryan Duffy

This episode of Now What is, on one level, a story about All Power Labs. APL is a group of genius misfits - Burning Man artists, brilliant engineers, and welders with a rebellious streak - and to properly understand them, a bit of backstory is required. Originally, they ran an illegal art compound on the outskirts of Berkeley, CA. The city didn't like that much and cut their power in an effort to evict them. Rather than cave in and move out, they built their own power generators based on old World War II technology.
