RIP Oscar de la Renta (July 22, 1932-October 20, 2014)

"There is much being said that his passing yesterday marks the end of an era. Not true. He was the most democratic man I knew and he would have lived happily and defined any era. He was happy dining with the rich and famous, for sure, but equally happy playing dominoes with his devoted staff. His designs reflected his extraordinary personality: optimistic, fun, sunny, romantic. … he told me he felt he had had the most amazing life and he was not afraid. This strength must have been with him in the hospital last week when he made the decision to turn off treatment; it was not the quality of life he wanted.
"He always said accept your friends for who they are, not for who you want them to be. Oscar was everything you could want a friend to be. Annette was his perfect partner, creating those magical houses and gardens together, giving extraordinary seemingly effortless dinners, and always taking care of each other. She slept on a cot in the hospital every night he was there. Theirs was the greatest, most life-enhancing love affair. Last week in the hospital he said that she never wears the beautiful jewelry he gave her, and she said simply, ‘I have you.’" — Anna Wintour

Striking portraits redefine the stereotypes about Iranian fathers and daughters

Photographer Nafise Motlaq recently set out on a mission to prove that not all Iranian fathers are the same. 

Currently living in Malaysia, Motlaq grew tired of how her native Iran is frequently characterized. “After living far from my homeland for several years, I found that people generally have stereotyped opinions about Iran and Iranians due to what mainstream media feed them,” she told Mic. 

Following her own father’s bout with a serious illness and a visit home after several years abroad, she was inspired to shoot the “Fathers and Daughters” series.

Molecular Cloud Barnard 68

What might look like a tear in the fabric of reality (the Pandorica opens), is actually a dark molecular cloud. A dark molecular cloud is a patch of space with a high concentration of dust, and molecular gas which absorbs practically all visible light. You can however see right through the cloud when observing it at the infrared energy band.
We don’t know how they form but it is thought that they are breeding grounds for new stars, and it has also been found that Barnard 68 is likely to collapse and form a new star system. (x)

Candy crab (Hoplophrys oatesi)

The candy crab is a very colourful crab that grows from 1.5 to 2 cm. It lives on various species of soft coral in the Dendronephthya genus. It camouflages itself by mimicing the colours of the polyps among which it hides. It adds further camouflage by attaching polyps to its carapace. Colours vary depending on the colour of the coral, and may be white, pink, yellow or red. This crab is widespread in the Indo-Pacific and it feeds on plankton. photo credits: digimuse, Brian Maye, divemecressi

Listen Closely As This California Forest Falls Eerily Quiet Over 10 Years

"Does the sound of the forest change over time?

Bernie Krause knows.

The expert bio-acoustician has spent decades recording natural sounds all over the world, including one particular section of forest between Napa and Sonoma valleys.

Over a ten year stretch, from 2004 to 2014, he’s noticed a major change in the biophony of the section of forest where he records.

Listen in to hear the startling changes.”
