If you look at the fact that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, that you are young and beautiful and live in a peaceful land, then no, you have nothing to be sad about. But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick. If you break a leg you don’t just say ‘I have no reason to have a broken leg’ and ignore it; you seek help. It’s the same when your soul gets hurt. Don’t apologize for being sad. By My doctor when I told her I had no reason to be sad (via jessicapshaw)

My family is from Nigeria, and my full name is Uzoamaka, which means “The road is good.” Quick lesson: My tribe is Igbo, and you name your kid something that tells your history and hopefully predicts your future. So anyway, in grade school, because my last name started with an A, I was the first in roll call, and nobody ever knew how to pronounce it. So I went home and asked my mother if I could be called Zoe. I remember she was cooking, and in her Nigerian accent she said, “Why?” I said, “Nobody can pronounce it.” Without missing a beat, she said, “If they can learn to say Tchaikovsky and Michelangelo and Dostoyevsky, they can learn to say Uzoamaka.”

"Work It Out" - Knox Hamilton

I already published my Neuro/Psych playlist, but I’ve started compiling my Peds playlist (4wks away) and I’m getting antsy about sharing it.

On a separate note, I finished neuro rotation and I’ve started pysch!! Third year is awesome.

A Simple, Elegant Invention That Draws Water From Air
When Italian designer Arturo Vittori and Swiss architect Andreas Vogler first visited Ethiopia in 2012, they were shocked to see women and children forced to walk miles for water.
Only 34 percent of Ethiopians have access to a reliable water supply. Some travel up to six hours a day to fetch some or, worse, resorts to using stagnant ponds contaminated by human waste, resulting in the spread of disease.
Worldwide, a whopping 768 million people — two and a half times the U.S. population — don’t have access to safe drinking water. So just imagine if we could just pull water out of thin air?
That’s what Vittori and Vogler asked once they saw the magnitude of problem and vowed to take action. Their firm, Architecture and Vision, has since come up with WarkaWater, a majestic palm-like structure that may look like something you’d see in a modern art museum but it’s been designed to harvest water from the air.
WarkaWater, which is named after an Ethiopian fig tree, is composed of a 30-foot bamboo frame containing a fog-harvesting nylon net that can be easily lowered for repairs and to allow communities to measure the water level.
Collecting water through condensation is hardly a new technique, but the creators of WarkaWater say their tree-inspired design is more effective, maximizing surface and optimizing every angle to produce up to 26 gallons of drinkable water a day — enough for a family of seven.

Indie Happy Hour Presents: Rocket & the Ghost

Kiyoshi Matsuyama, of Brooklyn-based 5-piece Rocket & the Ghost, was nice enough to answer a few of our stereotypically bizarre questions way back in April. We wish we could use the excuse of two Coachella weekends burning us out, and thus putting this interview on the back-burner, but we mostly just fell off the face of the Earth for a few months. But, we’re back, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, and we think Rocket & the Ghost is a band you all should get to know. What’s the best way to learn about such a band? In our aggressively un-biased opinion, it’s listening to the IHH team’s favorite song by them, “Shame”, and then reading on after the jump to find out what music, Cliff Bars, and beer all have in common (and no, it’s not a list of our favorite things… but.. well.. it could be).

LOVE them. I was super lucky to catch their show while in NYC in March!
