    A graduate student has created the first man-made biological leaf. It absorbs water and carbon dioxide to produce oxygen just like a plant. He did this by suspending chloroplasts in a mixture made out of silk protein. He believed it can be used for many things but the most striking one is the thought that it could be used for long distance space travel. Plants do not grow in space, but this synthetic material can be used to produce oxygen in a hostile environment. (Video)

    "I was raped in my own bed and I carry that weight with me wherever I go."

    So honored for the opportunity to share her story. Documentary photographer Morrigan McCarthy and I spent a school day with Columbia University student, artist, and activist Emma Sulkowicz, who is carrying a 50-pound mattress on campus for as long as her rapist is around. (In other words, until he graduates.) The mattress is absurdly heavy. (I tried to pick it up myself.) Read the story and see the photos on ELLE.com.

    • met at a pumpkin patch fighting over the same perfectly round and picturesque pumpkin au

    • 'me and my roommate decided to decorate our house for halloween but got really into it, and ended up re-enacting several scenes from nightmare on elm street so loud the neighbours called the police to investigate screams' au

    • 'i ordered a pumpkin spice latte at starbucks and you made a heart with the foam and i decided to drink it here so i can smile at you some more' au

    • 'this stranger on the street corner looks like they're severely unprepared for this cold weather, here, take my scarf, i was planning on donating it to goodwill anyways' au

    • 'i was unaware that there was an organized zombie crawl going on and i didn't realize you were in a costume and i screamed in your face because i truly thought i was facing a zombie invasion' au
