International economic sanctions because of the occupation of the Crimea; a decline in the ruble; and above all the collapse in oil prices are all to blame. Is the Worst Still to Come With Vladimir Putin? Exiled journalist Masha Gessen sees an ominous return to totalitarianism in Russia—and a leader itching to re-instill mass terror in its people.

Is the Worst Still to Come With Vladimir Putin?

Is the West missing the bigger problem with Vladimir Putin? Masha Gessen has been face-to-face with the Russian president. He didn’t come off as particularly smart or as an insightful politician. But she did see a man skilled in arousing fear—and who she now thinks is tapping into Russia’s most notorious past. In Berkeley recently for the Uncharted ideas festival, the Moscow-born journalist said the mechanism of creating totalitarianism involves ideology and mass terror.

37 Rare Historical Photos You’ve Probably Never Seen – Starfluff

Long before mobile devices with their easy to use cameras were on the scene, professional photographers were on the job, thankfully taking the following rare photographs that captured moments in time and now will last a lifetime.

Recent advances in imaging have revealed that false memories can be held by the very same cells that hold accurate ones, but we don't have much information about how false memories get there in the first place.

False memories arise because the brain codes similar ideas similarly

A recent study published in PNAS provides some insight into this issue, finding that false memories may arise from similarities among the items being remembered. In neuroscience, false memories don’t necessarily refer to a sensational memory that might land you on a daytime talk show. Typically, neuroscientists are more interested in banal false memories. For example, a classic experiment in false memories involves showing a subject a series of words related to the winter season, like ice, snow, wind, etc.

Simultaneously, he continued his own photographic education, taking a course on “how to photograph people and strangers” and thus decided to begin photographing his students on the school grounds, at parties or on the beach, which helped break down the barrier between pupil and instructor. With the series Almost Grown, Joseph Szabo celebrated teenage hood as ‘the years of restless desire and blossoming sexuality; the world of high school, parking lots, and street corners; and the uniquely American culture in which all of us have grown up.’ 1663?locale=en&_ga=1.93575960.485963593.

Documenting Fashion

He instructed contemporary artists not to ‘scorn or forgo this transitory, fleeting element that undergoes such frequent metamorphoses. By removing it, you lapse into the void of an abstract, indefinable beauty.’ The Impressionists wanted to capture the beauty and excitement of modern life in and around Paris, the capital of modernity, prior to and following the fall of the Second Empire in 1870. Their lively brushstrokes sought to animate the ephemeral and transitory qualities of Parisian modernity, as described by Baudelaire, and its recently established commodity culture, which was shaped by the imperatives of fashion, consumerism and incessant innovation.
