40 maps that explain the world Maps can be a remarkably powerful tool for understanding the world and how it works, but they show only what you ask them to. So when we saw a post sweeping the Web titled "40 maps they didn't teach you in school," one of which happens to be a WorldViews original, I thought we might be able to contribute our own collection. Some of these are pretty nerdy, but I think they're no less fascinating and easily understandable. A majority are original to this blog, with others from a variety of sources. The 100 Most Influential People in Fashion - 100 Most Influential People in Fashion Zimbio's 100 Most Influential People in Fashion There are a number of factors as to why we dress the way we do. Constraints of what we can afford, what's socially acceptable, and for many, the way we'd like to be perceived all play a role.

Damn, New York! Check Out Real NYC Style On The Streets During Fashion Week While fashion week unfolds at Lincoln Center next year’s trends are being created on the streets. Brooklyn-based photographer Ruddy Roye has been capturing the street style innovators walking the asphalt runways of New York’s five boroughs and spilling out of the “tents” during Fashion Week--and sharing it all via our Instagram feed. Roye, a photojournalist and self-described "Instagram activist," has been capturing people on the streets of New York for years, often showing his followers a look at the city they might not otherwise see. In addition to shooting portraits of New Yorkers, Roye has captured the style of the Congolese "Sapeurs" and Jamaican dancehall culture. He took over The New Yorker's Instagram feed in October of 2012 with his images taken during Hurricane Sandy. "Photography," says Roye, "is finding a piece of me in the eyes or essence of everyone and everything I photograph.

Harvard Seeks to Jolt University Teaching - Teaching By Dan Berrett Cambridge, Mass. A growing body of evidence from the classroom, coupled with emerging research in cognitive psychology and neuroscience, is lending insight into how people learn, but teaching on most college campuses has not changed much, several speakers said here at Harvard University at a daylong conference dedicated to teaching and learning.

History Of Mod Style – Looking Into The Origin Of Mod Style The history of mod style can be traced back to late 1950s in London, England and peaked in the early to mid 1060s. The mod movement originally began from Britain where the mod style was first a subculture developed by teenagers.
