""If you continue to think of who you were right up until the time you got Alzheimer's, you will experience frustration, decline, failure, a lesser self. Not good company. I sometimes can't complete a thought. I could feel bad about myself. If I have to measure up to what I was before I became this, I can't. But if you let that go, then you are still becoming something. And it's not necessarily a diminution of yourself. You must realize, it ain't over." — Geri Taylor, 72

Everyone knows how #Alzheimers ends. @nytimes spent 20 months with one woman to see how it begins. Today's edition of @nytimes includes a special 12-page section that tells the story of a woman finding her way through the early stages of Alzheimer's disease.

"Every 67 seconds, with monotonous cruelty, Alzheimer's takes up residence in another American. Degenerative and incurable, the disease moves in worsening stages to its ungraspable end. That is the familiar face of #Alzheimers, the withered person with the scrambled mind marooned in a nursing home, memories sealed away, aspirations for the future discontinued. But there is also the beginning, the waiting period. That was Geri Taylor. Waiting. "The beginning is like purgatory," Geri, 72, told the @nytimes reporter N.R. Kleinfield. "It's kind of a grace period. You're waiting for something. Something you don't want to come. It's like a before-hell purgatory." Visit the link in our profile to read "Fraying at the Edges" — a special section that tells how Geri found her way through the early stages of Alzheimer's disease — and to see more photos by the photographer @mikirbysmith. #nytweekender" By nytimes on Instagram.

"The #scorpions that scurry around Scottsdale, Arizona emerged from their winter slumber early this year. Usually dormant until late March, the creatures came out as temperatures soared in February, making a month that is generally pretty pleasant the second-warmest on record. Residents have been finding scorpions in their beds, in their showers, on walls inside and outside their homes and all over their yards. @caitlin_oh photographed this giant desert hairy #scorpion glowing under a #blacklight while on assignment in Scottsdale this month. The glow comes from a substance found inside a hard-and-thin coating on the scorpion's exoskeleton. Scientists are not sure what purpose it serves. Some say it is to confuse prey; others believe it's to protect scorpions from sunlight." By nytimes on Instagram.

““I’m not what someone thinks of when they think of prom...



""I'm not what someone thinks of when they think of prom queen." When 17-year-old Zarifeh Shalabi found out that she had been nominated for the ultimate title of teenage acceptance, she was more worried about getting permission to attend the dance than worried about winning. Zarifeh — a senior at a high school in Fontana, California — is the daughter of observant Muslims. She has always been expected to stay close to home and to limit her socializing with boys. So while her non-Muslim friends campaigned for her by wearing hijabs in solidarity, Zarifeh worked on convincing her parents to let her go to the prom. Ultimately, her mother said yes, and Zarifeh went with a large group of female friends. "Everyone was screaming, and I was just shocked," she said of the announcement. The flowing fabric of her hijab kept the crown from staying put, so much of the night Zarifeh let her friends wear it. @nytimes staff photographer @malmeidapix photographed Zarifeh modeling the outfit she wore to the prom."

"There are no cars, no modern roads and no streetlights on Sark, one of Britain's channel islands. Home to 600 people, Sark — which is off the coast of Normandy — feels almost stopped in time. For those who need to get around, though, there are bikes, horses and tractors. "One of my mates who loves Enya told me about Sark — Enya wrote a whole album about the island," writes the photographer @jon_tonks, who visited Sark while on assignment for @nytmag. "But I really wanted to go because Sark has a designation as a Dark Sky island, so there's very little light pollution." @jon_tonks took this photo while traveling by boat between the coastal town of Poole and Guernsey, a larger island about an hour from Sark."

"After an acclaimed 7-year run, @thegoodwife_cbs will come to an end next Sunday. "Someone said 'You must feel great, you wrapped,'" the show's star, @julianna.margulies, told @nytimes. "And I said, 'I feel like I'm in a dream.' I'm not quite there yet." With wryly literate writing, complicated characters and timely explorations of big issues, the hourlong drama was an outlier among the procedurals and nighttime soap operas that are common on the broadcast networks. But serialized dramas stretching nearly 2 dozen episodes each season may be a vanishing breed as actors and writers tire of the grueling filming schedules. What would it take for @julianna.margulies to commit to another network show with 22 episodes a year? "There's no amount of money in the world," she said. Follow photographer @jessedittmar to see a behind-the-scenes photo from his shoot with @julianna.margulies." By nytimes on Instagram.

“What if giant fireflies flew in clusters of hundreds?...



"What if giant fireflies flew in clusters of hundreds? What if fireworks could change direction at will? What if the lights of the New York skyline suddenly took to the air? For 6 weekends, beginning next Thursday at the @bklynnavyyard, more than 2,000 #pigeons will put on an avian-powered light show. The performance, "Fly By Night," is artist @dukerileystudio's valentine to the city, its historic shoreline, its oft-maligned spirit animal and the vanishing world of rooftop pigeon fanciers. With the help of @creativetimenyc, @dukerileystudio spent about half a year assembling his performers. He uses a whistle and a long bamboo stick with a garbage-bag flag to help guide the trained pigeons — which fly with LED lights attached to their legs — in synchronized flight. When the piece is finished, he said, many of the #pigeons will go to "this guy Gil who lost his pigeons in a fire a few weeks ago in Bushwick." The photographer Byron Smith captured a practice flight by a cast of 700 on Saturday." By nytimes on Instagram.

"@beyonce through #Lemonade-colored glasses: 4 days after the elaborate release of her intensely personal album about infidelity, self-worth and forgiveness, @beyonce debuted many of her new songs live last night in Miami. At her first concert In the 41-date "Formation" World Tour, #Beyoncé drew largely from her most recent albums, mixing the hurt and anger of songs from "Lemonade" with more euphoric numbers from her 2013 album. "For someone who excels at spectacle, and who conducts and executes grand-scale group activity with military precision, @beyonce made the striking decision to spend large parts of this show alone, unvarnished under the night sky," writes @joncaramanica. "In these poignant moments, she seemed not particularly preoccupied with the pyrotechnics that ordinarily are used to fill stadiums (though later, there were actual fireworks)."

""I can probably tick off 3 or 4 common-sense things we could have done where we'd be growing a percentage or 2 faster each year. We could have brought down the unemployment rate lower, faster. We could have been lifting wages even faster than we did. And those things keep me up at night sometimes." 8 years after the financial crisis, unemployment is 5%, deficits are down and GDP is growing. So why do so many American voters feel left behind? Over a series of candid conversations, @nytimes columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin asked @barackobama what he really thinks about his economic legacy. The president seems to understand that he might be judged not just by what he has done, but by how the results compare to a bygone era of middle-class opportunity — one that maybe no president, faced with the sweeping changes transforming the global economy, could ever bring back. @katygrannan photographed @barackobama at the @whitehouse in March. To make this portrait, she and the @nytmag team had exactly 5 minutes 39 seconds with the president. Follow @nytmag to see another image and visit the link in our profile to read the interview."

"The players — carpenters, drivers and masons — in the 4-year-old Workers Cup are just a fraction of the thousands of migrant workers who are actively building Qatar into a modern state for the 2022 @fifaworldcup. Some dream of playing professionally. Others claimed to have already played top-tier #soccer in Africa or Asia but said they decided to come to #Qatar to drive buses and build high-rises for the regular paychecks. The Workers Cup kicked off in mid-March with 24 teams, but now only 2 teams remain. The photographer Olya Morvan captured fans of Gulf Contracting celebrating the team's semifinal victory last Friday. The team will play Taleb Group for the title on the pristine turf of the Al Ahli Stadium on May 6. Tens of thousands of Qatari rials are at stake for the Workers Cup winners, as well as a camera or a phone for each player. #⚽ #regram from @nytimessports" By nytimes on Instagram.

"According to the ancient legend, Rome was founded on the banks of the Tiber River, where the mythical founders of the city were rescued and suckled by a she-wolf. Today, the filthy waterfront and murky waters of the Tiber are a painful reflection of the widespread neglect that has blemished Rome's beauty. Despite decades of promises by city officials to clean up the river's banks, joggers and cyclists using riverfront walkways still have to dodge litter and overgrown vegetation. Faced with the city's inaction, several associations of do-gooders have taken matters into their own hands. Members of one group, Retake Rome, have engaged in a collective quest to rid the city's streets of litter, layers of advertising stickers and the graffiti that can be found scrawled on thousands of palazzos. The rallying cry for the group: "Wake Up, Clean Up, Speak Up." Nadia Shira Cohen captured this scene under Ponte Sisto bridge on the Tiber River." By nytimes on Instagram.

"Mélida was 9 when guerrilla fighters lured her away from her family's home in Caldas, Colombia, with the promise of soup. For the next 7 years she was held hostage, forced to become a child soldier. Her family thought she had died in battle. But when she was 16, Mélida returned to her village, carrying a pistol and a grenade. Only her grandfather recognized her — from a birthmark on her cheek. Mélida was taken to a government rehabilitation center for indigenous youth who've left the rebels, known as the FARC. Today, she's caught between 2 worlds, she says. "True, we were children waiting for our deaths," she told @nytimes reporter @caseysalbum. "But I'm always thinking about returning." Mélida isn't alone. As Colombia nears a peace agreement that would end a half-century of fighting, thousands of rebel fighters who since childhood were raised to carry out armed struggle know little else but war. The photographer @juanarre captured this moment between Mélida and her daughter, Celeste, who was born last year. Visit the link in our profile to read more." By nytimes on Instagram.

These same mosquitoes are also known carriers of the Zika virus. There is currently a major outbreak of Zika in the Americas and the CDC has issued guidance and warnings for travel to affected areas. How much of a risk is Zika to the US…really? How did it become so widespread? And is there a Zika vaccine on the horizon?

"The lifeline in the northwest corner of China's Yunnan Province is the Dulong River, which begins on the Tibetan plateau and flows through the Dulong River Valley into Myanmar. The Dulong River Valley — a sliver of land on China's eastern rim of the Himalayas — is home to almost all of China's 7,000 ethnic Dulong, or Drung, one of the smallest of its 56 official national ethnic groups. With no paved roads leading out of the nearby villages in Myanmar's Kachin State, ethnic Dulong walk into the valley to sell herbs and vegetables. But things are changing in the valley, where the Chinese government has been building new roads, expanding telecommunications and encouraging commercial ventures to alleviate poverty. Locals worry about the impact these changes will have on both the environment and society. Visit the link in our profile to read more, and to see more photos by @gillessabrie."

"Discarded gas masks and textbooks on the floor of an abandoned school in Pripyat, Ukraine. Earlier this month, the photographer @bdentonphoto visited Pripyat, the largest city in the exclusion zone surrounding the #Chernobyl reactor. 2 days after the disaster — which took place 30 years ago today — Pripyat's population of nearly 50,000 was evacuated. Today, scientists say, the average radiation level in the zone has fallen to one-quarter of the level right after the explosion and fire. The concept of the exclusion zone was to limit, through isolation, the lethality of an accident at the nuclear plant. But unofficial explorers of the zone have found signs of illegal logging in the ostensibly protected, postapocalyptic forest.
