Created Equal... Photographer Mark Laita In America, the chasm between rich and poor is growing, the clash between conservatives and liberals is strengthening, and even good and evil seem more polarized than ever before. At the heart of this collection of portraits is my desire to remind us that we were all equal, until our environment, circumstances or fate molded and weathered us into whom we have become. Los Angeles- and New York-based photographer Mark Laita completed Created Equal over the course of eight years; his poignant words reflect the striking polarizations found in his photographs. Presented as diptychs, the images explore social, economic and gender difference and similarity within the United States, emulating and updating the portraiture of Edward Curtis, August Sander and Richard Avedon.

6 Important Things Nobody Tells You About Grad School Summer! The courses are complete, the exams are over, and the students emerge from educational cocoons to blink in the harsh light of the real world. Many dive straight back under the downy duvet of postgraduate education, and every single one of them is reading this, because screwing around on the Internet is what postgraduates do instead of ever leaving the building. John Foxx/Stockbyte/Getty Images"Haha, I'm sitting quietly at my desk reading NON-work-related material! In your face, The Man!"

Instead some people take that offer and really go balls to the wall and make a joke of it. I had a few friends myself that had some classic yearbook quotes from “Why do mice have shoulder blades, life is a mystery.” to “Ride or Die- DMX”, both from two of my best friends.

The Proton Radius Prediction and Gravitational Control On December 20th 2012, Director of Research at The Hawaii Institute for Unified Physics and The Resonance Project Foundation, Nassim Haramein registered a copyright at the Library of Congress (click here to see a copy of the online entry) for his paper Quantum Gravity and the Holographic Mass (QGHM), which was eventually published in the peer-reviewed journal Physical Review & Research International. In his manuscript, Haramein utilized Planck spherical units (PSU) to describe the holographic vacuum fluctuations and extremely accurately predict the charge radius of the proton (the radius of the proton is typically more accurately described as the charge radius because all we can say about the proton is that there is a concentration of positive charge in that region of space which defines what we would think of as the surface of the proton). Since the 2013 muonic measurement of the proton occurred, the little particle has taken international attention by storm.
