"#GrandStaircase-Escalante #NationalMonument in #Utah is otherworldly, with vast landscapes of canyons, winding rugged backways and balanced rocks. Pictured here is the monument’s #Toadstools — stone caps of Dakota Sandstone protecting the softer sandstone create amazing hoodoos. David Lane created this stunning multi-image panorama of the area with the #MilkyWay above and radiating bands of red and green airglow visible. While Page, #Arizona, is nearly 50 miles south of the monument (and a soft, barely discernible light to the naked eye), the long exposure of David’s camera captured the light more vividly.

"This life-threatening case of purpura fulminans resulted from a systemic Neisseria infection. Neisseria causes many types of infection, most commonly gonorrhea and meningitis. This hematological emergency involves both skin necrosis and disseminated intravascular coagulation, and can progress rapidly into multi-organ failure. This case was treated with third-generation cephalosporins while the patient was supported in the ICU. See this image in Figure 1 to learn more." By figure1 on Instagram

"#regram @makhulu_
Mr and Mrs Matias were heavily pregnant during the severe floods in Malawi. Their home was under water, as you can see by the water mark on the wall behind them, as they went into labour. A helicopter was delivering aid and an MSF midwife nurse happens to be on it. The clinic nearby was also waterlogged but the midwife decided to make a plan. 20min after meeting their baby girl was born. They are thinking of naming it Seven after the day the flood hit. Well that was my suggestion and truthfully we all moved passed it quickly. I left them in good spirits but earlier Mrs Matias had said that all their floor is gone, their next crops gone, and that they have huge concerns. “I am greatful for the birth of our child, but it’s just the beginning of our problems. We need help here.” It took me a helicopter ride and a 15min bicycle taxi to get to their home. With all roads still under water this community in Makhanga need serious help.

"#MSF
In the last week fighting in eastern #Ukraine has escalated to a level not seen since the peak of the conflict last summer. The situation for civilians caught in the conflict zone is now dire and medical facilities continue to be hit by shelling or rockets. With doctors working in hospitals close to the frontline struggling to treat the wounded with dwindling supplies, MSF teams are stepping up their support, but continued shelling and the closure of checkpoints is preventing them from reaching the hardest hit areas. >

Irina, a resident of Gorlovska, eastern Ukraine, shares her experience fleeing her home and the constant bombardments, with her children: “We were living on the frontline where there was constant shelling, and the children were very frightened by the noise. We left our house because of the bombings; the roof had been damaged and we had spent the last week living in the basement. The children were afraid to go upstairs, and if they played outside during the day then they didn’t want to come back inside the house at night. When we first arrived here the children were still afraid of loud, unexpected noises but now they feel safe and they are calmer.”

""Vesalius on the Verge: The Book and the Body" explores the groundbreaking work of 16th century professor and physician Andreas Vesalius, who changed the way that human anatomy was taught forever with "De humani corporis fabrica (On the fabric of the human body)". The book did two things not seen before: it corrected errors in the conception of the human body that existed for over a millennia, and it combined text with artistic illustration, which enabled interactive learning. Where else can you see a first edition of the 1543 published text, a desiccated body juxtaposed with a full skeleton, and a contemporary recreation of Vesalius’ dissection table?

Last week we celebrated the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Today we commemorate the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. As we remember the lives of leaders who steered us towards progress and study the horrors in our collective history, we are left with the knowledge that more work needs to be done. The decisions and actions we make when motivated by intolerance can result in mental and emotional trauma that can ripple through generations. In light of recent news from Ferguson, Paris, Nigeria and countless places worldwide that see little to no media coverage, we at @1in20 are devoting the month of February to highlight submissions that tackle the emotional and mental repercussions of intolerance.

"When it comes to light illustrations, Darren Pearson (@dariustwin) plays both photographer and magician, achieving a how-did-he-do-it aesthetic by merging surrealism with technological prowess. “I just like looking at the back of the camera and not knowing what’s going to appear,” says the 31-year-old Los Angeles-based artist, who creates his dreamy, hallucinatory photos using long exposure, a tripod, and a LED light he fashions himself. “If it appears way better than what I was thinking, that’s like, ah! That’s a victory!” Darren began exploring light-work eight years ago after spotting a long exposure photo of Pablo Picasso taken by LIFE magazine photographer Gjon Mili in 1949. In it, the Spanish painter stands shirtless while wielding a light that traces a path in the air. “I was like, ‘What the heck is this?’” says Darren. “It kind of blew my mind.” Photo by @dariustwin" By instagram on Instagram.

A combination of the day-night band and high resolution infrared imagery from the Suomi NPP satellite shows the historic blizzard near peak intensity as it moves over the New York through Boston Metropolitan areas at 06:45Z (1:45 am EST) on January 27, 2015. The nighttime lights of the region are blurred by the high cloud tops associated with the most intense parts of the storm.

Even though the #blizzardof2015 was kind of a bust - people came out to bask in the eerie emptiness of NYC. I remember traveling with @ruddyroye during hurricane #sandy - biking up Broadway in complete darkness - and thinking that this would not be a repeatable experience. Last night @ronhaviv_vii and I trudged through the mostly empty streets and it was the same strang feeling. That we were in on a unique experience.

"On 20 January 2015, the hospital managed by #MSF in Farandallah village, South Kordofan region in the Nuba Mountains, was directly targeted during a bombing raid lead by the Sudanese Air Force (SAF). This is one of the many indiscriminate bombings occurring regularly in #SouthKordofan in the war between Khartoum and rebel groups in the #Nuba Mountains.
The Farandallah hospital was previously bombed on 16 June, 2014. That attacks took place despite Sudanese government knowledge of MSF’s presence.

MSF calls on #Khartoum again to respect the assistance we bring to the population. MSF wants and will try to continue to provide assistance to the population with vital access to health care.
