Rihanna’s present to LAPD

Last week, the famous singer Rihanna was attending a basketball game. As she was sitting next to Steve Soboroff, president of the Los Angeles Police Commission, he asked her if she could take a selfie with both of them in it, but she dropped and cracked his phone.

What did she do ? Of course, she said she was sorry. Soboroff told her he would put the phone on auction to raise funds for police cadets from underprivileged background. So she signed it “I ❤ LAPD, Rihanna”. And earlier this week, she made a 25000 $ donation to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Meet the dumbo octopus !

The dumbo octopus isn’t very well-known because it lives between 4 000 and 7 000 meters below the surface of the ocean. It is found in the waters near Australia and New-Zealand, but also around California.

As you can see, it’s got two fins on its main body, which look like wings, or big ears… Hence the name of Dumbo, like the baby elephant in the Disney movie, who has got long ears, and thinks he can fly with them.

A year ago in Boston

A photographer, Robert X. Fogarty, worked on the aftermath of Boston’s 2013 bombing. The act of terrorism which took place near the finish line of the very popular annual marathon took 3 lives and left 264 injured.

This project consists in a series of portraits of the victims with a special message written on their skin, a message they want to share with the world.
