There will be time, there will be time
To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet...

Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) became  the world’s first organisation to reach Mars in its first attempt and the first Asian nation to do so.

And it cost a fraction of NASA’s Mars mission budget.

Congratulations, India!

The Ansaris and the Carters at Yeezus last weekend. When my mom asked for this photo, @Beyonce said “It would be an honor.” Amazing. Happy Bey Day. Also shout out to my parents who I love very much.

The White House has a plan to get birth control to Hobby Lobby workers

Both center on a previously-drafted accommodation for religious non-profits who have a moral objection to paying for certain types of birth control. That provision lets these objectors opt-out of paying for birth control and requires their health insurance plans to step in and foot the bill.”

It had to happen. Thank you, President Obama.

O Captain! My captain, the fearful trip is done,
The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won,
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;
But O heart! heart! heart!
O the bleeding drops of red,
Where on the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.

O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up—for you the flag is flung—for you the bugle trills,
For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths—for you the shores a-crowding,
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
Here Captain! dear father!
The arm beneath your head!
It is some dream that on the deck,
You’ve fallen cold and dead.

My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still,
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will,
The ship is anchor’d safe and sound, its voyage closed and done,
From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won;
Exult O shores, and ring O bells!
But I with mournful tread,
Walk the deck my Captain lies,
Fallen cold and dead.

~ Walt Whitman
