THROWING STONES
A powerful statement, “The Untouchables” by Cuban artist Erik Ravelo are photographs of children crucified for his supposed oppressors. The first image refers to pedophilia in the Vatican. The second, child sexual abuse in tourism in Thailand, while the third refers to the war in Syria. Trafficking of organs on the black market is depicted in the photo featuring a surgeon, and the fifth photo refers to weapon violence in the U.S. And finally, the sixth image refers to obesity, blaming the big fast food companies. Visually arresting, the series seeks to reaffirm the right of children to be protected and encourage the reporting of abuse suffered by them, especially in countries such as Brazil, Syria, Thailand, United States and Japan.

It may be brick outside where you are (or not…), but there’s still cause to celebrate this staple of summer fun, the Super Soaker. Did you know this perennially popular toy was invented by an African-American astro-physicist? Dr. Lonnie Johnson worked on NASA’s Mars Observer project and on the Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn. Dr. Johnson once experimented with a heat pump that used water instead of Freon, a toxic gas important to astrophysics. He hooked up the invention to the bathroom sink and saw a powerful stream of water squirt across the room. He called his invention the Power Drencher, but later changed it to the Super Soaker. Johnson holds approximately 80 patents, including rechargeable batteries, a dart gun, a spacecraft cooling system, and a hair curler.

MAD WIN
If it hasn’t been a punchline on The Simpsons, it must not exist. The long-running animated FOX series finally spoofs Mad Men on the near eve of its 7th (and final) season premiere. If you’re a fan of the AMC show, you are undoubtedly familiar with the good-for-nothing teasers at the conclusion of each episode, which the Simpsons clan masters with ease. See the trailer at Slate.

TAKING IT UNDERGROUND

While entrepreneurs in London are planning to build the world’s longest subterranean farm in tunnels below the city, Paris is planning to turn its abandoned metro stations into restaurants, auditoriums and even underground swimming pools! Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet — a promising candidate for the upcoming mayoral elections — is working with local architects Manal Rachdi and Nicolas Laisné on a range of proposals for transforming the city’s ghost metro stations.
