"Atoms for Peace"
President Dwight D. Eisenhower was determined to solve “the fearful atomic dilemma” by finding some way by which “the miraculous inventiveness of man” would not be dedicated to his death, but consecrated to his life. In his Atoms for Peace speech before the United Nations General Assembly on December 8, 1953, President Eisenhower sought to solve this terrible problem by suggesting a means to transform the atom from a scourge into a benefit for mankind.

Western Black Rhino officially declared extinct. Good job everyone. Round of applause because the ivory was soooooo worth it.
Obviously not Khan related but, being an animal advocate, I thought this was important.
Good job, humanity. Fucking shame.
Wait what… I’m pretty sure there’s one in my local zoo.
The one in your zoo is probably a white rhino.
This is the sort of thing that makes me want to jump out of my skin. Also possibly, fast forward a few thousand years.

'Wired Microbes' Generate Electricity from Sewage
Engineers at Stanford have devised a new way to generate electricity from sewage, using naturally occurring “wired microbes” as mini power plants, producing electricity as they digest plant and animal waste.In a paper published in PNAS, co-authors Yi Cui, a materials scientist, Craig Criddle, an environmental engineer, and Xing Xie, an interdisciplinary researcher, call their invention a microbial battery.
This UN Women ad campaign uses actual Google autofill searches to illustrate pervasive sexist beliefs about women around the world.
An absolutely shocking campaign that is truly brilliant. These images are of actual human rights abuse victims taken by traveling journalists form a variety of countries that have been placed into Switzerland’s surroundings. The shock of seeing these individuals right in front of the public eye certainly shed new light on the issue and caused a global stir.
