I’ll anecdote one story. This girl, Maggie Doyne, is a bright high school senior - great grades, varsity athlete - decides to take a gap year. Travels to Nepal, meets a girl, hikes three days to get to her village - decides to stay in this village because the main form of recreation for the children there is chipping away at rocks near a river. So she takes the $5,000 she raised...

People post up older pictures of them when they were young, and newer pictures of them now. It’s really entertaining! trust me!

Walk into Cartier. Ask to see the most expensive ring (est. $700,000). Walk out with it in your pocket. End of story.
Mean Duke Students →
So as a Duke basketball aficionado - the minute I heard that Hummel had re-torn his ACL, I immediately did a heh heh - well that sucks for him.

Okay so graphene didn’t win the Nobel Prize in...

Since then 4 million other human beings came into being through Dr. Edward’s work. //on a side note - there are so many ways describing this man’s work could be crudely...

Angela Ahrendts →

Her favorite moment as Burberry’s CEO is when she got to give the commencement speech at her alma mater because she knew that for 23 minutes she could touch...
