BREAKING: Malala Yousafzai Wins Nobel Peace Prize
Malala, now 17, was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman two years ago in her home country of Pakistan after coming to prominence for her campaigning for education for girls.
She won for what the Nobel committee called her “heroic struggle” for girls’ right to an education.
She is the youngest ever winner of the prize. (x)
I have found possibly the best thing ever
It’s a sweater - with a built in scarf!!!!! Hallelujah!

This is one of two semi-intact rooms left in the crumbling Doctors’ Cottage from Riverside Hospital, the famed quarantine hospital housed on North Brother Island, once home to “Typhoid” Mary Mallon. Reaching it involves choosing a way into the building - whether through a door or a missing wall - and then climbing staircases that bend under one’s feet, the railings long gone, and across landings that lead to nowhere but holes in the side of the building. The reward is this scene - and it’s totally worth all the hassle.
