Iconic Photos Since 1941, Ho Chi Minh had been rebelling against the French colonial rule in Vietnam. Sixty years ago, that struggle reached its climax at a broad vale known as Diên Biên Phu. The French, fifty thousand of whom ruled over the colony of 20 million people, grossly underestimated their enemy’s strength and capabilities, initially unaware that the Vietnamese had been supplied with anti-aircraft and heavy artillery by Red China. In fact, as the first French paratroops were dropped into the valley in November 1953, the French government hoped for a swift victory that might just win back public support for the war in Indochina. It turned out to be a heroic, if foolhardy, last stand. Generals responsible raised doubts whether a defense was feasible as early as January 1954.

Artist and designer Jessica Kerbawy creates these amazing rainbow wall art pieces by gluing a spectrum of crayons on foam core, and then strategically melting them with a heat gun. The paper wrappers are left atop, with the remains of the colored wax dripping down. Though it may look like something you've seen before, I find these to be pretty clever and unique, and an update on the playing with melted wax and rainbow techniques.

Me « I Knead You I’m Hannah. I’m a Biology major who loves to cook, from a big family in Maryland. We have a teeny galley kitchen, usually with a handful of snacking kids, so moving to school in New York wasn’t a huge change on the cooking front as far as space goes. Whether it’s mixing batter in the common room, dropping eggs on the carpet at three in the morning, or finding creative substitutes for everything from oven-mitts to cheese graters, cooking in college is always an adventure.
