The Library of Celsus

Built in honor of the Roman Senator Tiberius Julius Celsus Polemaeanus in Ephesus, Anatolia (now Selçuk, Turkey), the library was built to store 12,000 scrolls and to serve as a monumental tomb for Celsus. Celsus is buried in a sarcophagus beneath the library, in the main entrance.

Construction was between 117-120 AD, and the building is important as one of the few remaining examples of an ancient Roman-influenced library. It also shows that public libraries were built not only in Rome itself but throughout the Roman Empire.

The interior of the library and all its books were destroyed by fire in the devastating earthquake that struck the city in 262. Only the facade survived.

Ice Rider Crosses World’s Oldest Lake
French photographer Matthieu Paley is the person behind this almost unbelievable photo called Ice Rider. It was taken in Siberia.
"A bird’s eye view of Lake Baikal, the world’s largest fresh water lake," writes Paley on his website. “During winter the ice is up to 1.5 metres thick, allowing trucks and animals to cross safely. The white lines are cracks in the ice and as temperatures change these emit loud shuddering noises, reinforcing the eerie atmosphere.”
Lake Baikal holds many titles. It’s not only the world’s oldest lake at 25 million years old, it’s also the deepest and among the most clearest lakes in the world. For almost five months a year, it’s covered with ice.
Paley just came out with a new book called Pamir: Forgotten on the Roof of the World. The images, taken over the last 10 years, show the rarely photographed world of the less than 1,000 Kyrgyz. They’re a small group of people who live in Afghanistan’s Pamir mountains, who are practically cut-off from the rest of the world.

Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College

YAAAAEEESSSSSSS

You know what I like, and feel is so important? That he doesn’t say “Men thinks those are THEIR positions”. He says “We think those are OUR positions.”

As a male feminist, he still doesn’t exclude himself from the group of men.

Damn.

Well said.

"Never did like that much," is a baller and superb way to express your irritation with the way the patriarchy refuses to acknowledge how badass you are.
