How Hippies Created Today’s American Culture: It is now clear that the hippies won the culture wars that were launched nearly fifty years ago. It was in the mid-1960s that one of America’s oddest social movements, the hippies, suddenly appeared. The Sixties counterculture, its beliefs and practices, its odyssey into the Seventies, and its many legacies have transformed American attitudes.

William Harley and Arthur Davidson, 1914. NOT! The photo probably IS from around 1914 and those are brand-new 1914 Harley Davidson Motorcycles, but those two guys most definitely are not the company founders. They're just two Minnesota motorcycle enthusiasts.
William Harley and Arthur Davidson, photographed in 1914: they would become the founders of the iconic American motorcycle brand that is Harley Davidson. #Harley #motorcycle #bike #history #biker #vintage #founders

Slavery in America was much worse than you probably imagined: Virginia was the epicenter of a slave breeding industry, in which enslaved women were expected to be constantly pregnant, were sold off if they didn’t produce children. The offspring were sold to newer settlers and those migrating west. Charleston, South Carolina, in contrast, was colonial America’s slave importing and exporting port.

African American Family by Black History Album. Through their families, religion, folklore, and music, as well as more direct forms of resistance, Africans-Americans resisted the debilitating effects of slavery and created a vital culture supportive of human dignity. In addition, slaves exerted a profound influence on all aspects of American culture.

A Boxer in regalia during the Boxer Rebellion, China, 1898-1901. At the turn of the 20th century, intense social pressure due to increasing foreign influence in Qing China led to an upsurge of participation in the Righteous Harmony Society Movement (Yihetuan), called the "Boxers" by foreign observers. From their base in drought-ravaged northern China, the Boxers spread across the country, attacking foreign missionaries, diplomats and traders, as well as Chinese Christian converts.
What Happened During the Boxer Rebellion? Execution of three anti foreign officials in Paoting-fu, during the Boxer Rebellion. On June 18, 1900, the Empress Dowager ordered all foreigners to be killed. Several foreign ministers and their families were killed before the international force could protect them. On August 14, 1900, the international force took Peking and subdued the rebellion. The Boxer Rebellion weakened the Ch'ing dynasty's power and hastened the Republican Revolution of 1911.

The word “massacre” usually brings to mind lonely American landscapes such as Wounded Knee, Mountain Meadows and Sand Creek—not a busy metropolis like Los Angeles. Yet that city’s first race riot, dating back all the way to 1871 and largely forgotten today, came to be known as the Los Angeles Chinese Massacre.

This picture is a picture of a Chinese camp in the mines. The picture shows them helping one another with their hair, and sharing each others food, the hairstyle they wore during this time was disliked because it was seen as strange to the white American people.

Ted Talk, Monica Lewinsky: The price of Shame. "For nearly 2 decades now, we have been slowly sowing the seeds of shame and public humiliation in our cultural soil, both on and offline. Gossip websites, papparazi, reality programming, politics, news outlets, and sometimes hackers, all traffic in shame." "We need to communicate online with compassion, consume news with compassion, and click with compassion."

TEDTalks - Monica Lewinsky: The price of shame "In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way." - http://www.ted.com/talks/monica_lewinsky_the_price_of_shame
Monica Lewinsky: The price of shame | March 2015 TED Talk | In 1998, says Monica Lewinsky, “I was Patient Zero of losing a personal reputation on a global scale almost instantaneously.” Today, the kind of online public shaming she went through has become a constant. In a brave talk, she takes a look at our “culture of humiliation,” in which online shame equals dollar signs — and demands a different way.
Lee Miller's stunning images of women in wartime: Lee Miller in Hitler’s bathtub, Munich, Germany, 1945. Miller’s friend David Scherman took this photograph (she took a similar one of him at the same time, but for obvious reasons, this is the better known), and it’s very carefully staged, from the picture of Hitler on the tub to the slightly kitschy statue on the right, to the boots on the bathmat beside the tub. These are the boots Miller had worn to visit the concentration camp at Dachau.
Lee Miller's stunning images of women in wartime: A tired mother and son wait at a crossroads for transport, Luxembourg, 1945. After the liberation of Paris in August 1944, Miller followed the allied forces through Europe. Her eye was very much on the civilians caught up in the war through no fault of their own. This image captures some of the terrible weariness after so many years of conflict.
Lee Miller's stunning images of women in wartime: An exhausted nurse at the 44th evacuation hospital, Normandy, France, 1944. This photograph was taken a month after D-day at Bricqueville, Normandy. Forty nurses were attached to this mobile hospital, eight miles south of Omaha Beach. Between 5 July and 4 August they treated some 4,500 patients, of which only 50 died.
Lee Miller's stunning images of women in wartime: ATS officers getting changed in Camberley, Surrey, 1944. After performing their drills in a muddy field, these trainee ATS (Auxiliary Territorial Service) officers rapidly change into uniform for their next assignment. This photograph reveals an intimacy with its subjects that only a woman could have achieved: had a man been behind the camera, the women would all have rushed to hide.
Lee Miller's stunning images of women in wartime: A French woman is accused of collaborating with the Germans, Rennes, France, 1944. This woman was being interrogated before being publicly shamed as a collaborator. For Miller, hair was important. At the Imperial War Museum, this picture can be seen alongside a photograph of a female member of the FFI (Forces françaises de l’intérieur) who sports an extremely elaborate hairstyle. For the resistance, such styles sent a message of defiance.
Lee Miller's stunning images of women in wartime: Anna Leska, White Waltham air field, England, 1942. A serving officer in the Polish air force, Anna Leska was one of three Polish women who served in the Air Transport Auxiliary. In this picture, she had only recently been cleared to do so. The women who flew in the ATA were extremely skilful, required as they were to fly a variety of different planes from the maintenance sheds to the airfields (in this image, Leska is in a Spitfire).
Women at war: Lee Miller exhibition includes unseen images of conflict. A new Imperial War Museum show explores women’s wartime experience - and reveals the spirit and determination behind the photographer’s reportage. • Lee Miller’s second world war photography – in pictures

Trauma May Be Woven Into DNA of Native Americans: The science of epigenetics proposes that we pass along more than DNA in our genes; it suggests that our genes can carry memories of trauma experienced by our ancestors and can influence how we react to trauma and stress. The way genes work in our bodies determines neuroendocrine structure and is strongly influenced by experience. Epigenetics is beginning to uncover scientific proof that intergenerational trauma is real.

Key to Survival Found for Sailors Shipwrecked in Alaska in 1813: The Russian-American Company frigate Neva was wrecked near Kruzof Island, Alaska. The survivors managed to live for nearly a month, in winter, despite struggling to shore with almost nothing. Now, archaeologists are uncovering the story of how these sailors lived until rescuers arrived. The researchers found that the sailors started fires with gunflints and steel scraps and cannibalized the ship’s wreckage to build tools.
