The Chris McCandless Obsession Problem by Diana Saverin

Every year, scores of Into the Wild fans tackle a dangerous river crossing to visit the last home of Alaska’s most famous adventure casualty. Why are so many people willing to risk injury, and even death, to pay homage to a controversial ascetic who perished so young?

The Supervolcano Below

Underneath Yellowstone lies a magma chamber 55 miles long, 20 miles wide, and at it’s furthest, 9 miles deep. Containing enough molten lava to fill the Grand Canyon, if the supervolcano were to blow, ash would cover most of the USA. When the animals start running, you’ll know it’s time. Volcanoes, so hot right now.

Volcanoes Are So Hot Right Now

Another day, another volcano. Japan might even have a new island to add to their territory after an underwater volcanic eruption blasted rock above sea level earlier today. And did you hear about the newly discovered active volcano in West Antarctica? Hot.

Volcanos Erupting Everywhere!

Mt. Etna blew its top on Saturday in Sicily, and as we speak, Mount Sinabung is spewing ash all over Northern Sumatra. Is this the end of the world? Probably, but why should that bother us anyway?

Nobody listens to it.

In this project titled ‘Listen and Repeat’ by Rachel Knoll, a megaphone affixed to a tree in Washington “uses text to speech capabilities to recite tweets composed with the tag ‘nobody listens’ from the social media website Twitter.”

Climate Change

Cold and wet and in an unfamiliar city, FUZI UVTPK and I were looking for a place to shelter us from the rain when we stumbled upon a series of greenhouses. The first contained temperate vegetation with cacti and succulents from the U.S. and Africa. (There is also annex of carnivorous plants that can be visited upon request.) The second housed a garden of tropical crop plants (coffee, cocoa and vanilla, for example), and the third featured orchids and ferns growing underneath the fronds of large palm trees, which had trunks wrapped in tropical vines.
