“Suicide Squad” Reviewed

“The worst of the worst.” That is the phrase chosen by Amanda Waller (Viola Davis), in “Suicide Squad,” to describe the ragtag group of ne’er-do-wells that she has put together in the national interest. Waller is a senior government official, as we can tell from the sturdy folk in uniform with whom …

The National Bison Legacy Act, which designates the bison as the USA's official mammal, has passed the U.S. House and is expected to pass the Senate this week. For more photographs of the majestic bison please check out @dguttenfelder and the May issue of National Geographic Magazine which is devoted to Yellowstone and the centennial of the U.S. Park Service.

After a snow storm, Afghan nomads bring their yak herd back. They rely on their animals for survival. "The Pamir mountains are one of the bleakest and least known corners of the world: remote, mysterious and, at one time, dubbed the third pole." a quote from a magnificent book, "Mountains of the Gods" by Ian Cameron (published 1984). This is an unpublished image from a 2013 story I shot for @natgeo about the Kyrgyz nomads of Afghanistan's remote Pamir mountains.

85 years ago today, on May 1, 1931, the Empire State Building in New York City opened. President Herbert Hoover turned on the building's lights, officially opening it, by pressing a button in Washington.

Photo by @BrianSkerry. A female adult harp seal pops up through the ice to breathe and check on her pup in Canada’s Gulf of St. Lawrence. Typically, harp seal pups spend two weeks on solid ice after birth, before diving into the frigid waters. In the distance, the photographer’s boat and home for weeks at sea rests in the ice. Sea ice in this region has been declining in recent years and having an impact on the ecosystems that harp seals and other arctic mammals rely on for survival.

Photograph by George Steinmetz @geosteinmetz / @thephotosociety Center-pivot irrigation circles growing alfalfa reach to the horizon near Wadi Dawasir at the edge of the Empty Quarter in Saudi Arabia. A hundred meters beneath the sand is an ancient aquifer with fossil water that fell as rain thousands of years ago. The rotating irrigation pipe sprays water and fertilizer onto barren land to make it bloom. After twenty years of pumping the water drops to levels so deep that it is not economic and the fields are abandoned. This is one of the hottest places on earth, and crops are only viable here for four months a year, but the fields need to be irrigated year-round to stop salt from building up on the surface.

The streets of London can best be described with one word: Chaotic. It turns out that I could not have been more wrong: there is a very special beauty within the mysterious curves of London's streets - and especially so at night.

Photo @ladzinski / Hazy sunrise over smoke filled valleys of #GlacierNationalPark from nearby fires, some as far away as Washinton state. The ashy sky filling the park created an atmosphere and depth extenuating the complex landscape of the glacially carved terrain.

The results are in: #Iceland is #paradise of strange #beauty. Another exhilarating #globetrotting adventure, this time 4x4ing around 828 miles of the #RingRoad over eight days with @chelskennedy21 & @careyrose23. Many thanks to clients @SPYoptic & @olloclip. A trip never to be forgotten. Recommended! Over the course of the next couple days, I'll be rolling out posts from the adventure.

#BobMarley died on this day in 1981 at the age of 36. The Bob Marley and the Wailers compilation album, ‘Legend,’ released in 1984, is the best-selling reggae album ever with an estimated worldwide sales of more than 25 million copies. Since Marley’s early death, he’s become a global symbol. Ranked at Number 11 on Rolling Stone’s list of Greatest Artists, and #WyclefJean wrote a moving tribute, stating: “‘Redemption Song’ transcends time. ‘Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery/ None but ourselves can free our minds/Have no fear for atomic energy/'Cause none of them can stop the time.’ It will mean the same thing in the year 3014. Today, people struggle to find what's real. Everything has become so synthetic that a lot of people, all they want is to grasp onto hope. The reason people still throw on Bob Marley T-shirts is because his music is one of the few real things left to grasp onto.” Click the link in our bio to read the tribute.

Tasmania, Australia | May 11, 2016 Tasman Island. For the very top of the Blade rock formation. It was windy. Really really windy. I now know my limitations. Nuff said. #sonyalpha #tasmania #threecapes #discovertasmania #seeaustralia #threecapestrack

Nothing to see here, just a casual little #sunset over #Iceland's northwestern town of #Hvammstangi (or as we called it, "Ham Sandwich"). We watched this spectacle of color and light from our cozy little cottage, tucked into the hills above the town. 🌅🌄 More photos from the trip beyond my bio link!

Wispy clouds float over #JacksonLake as the sun slowly sinks behind the Teton mountains at #GrandTeton #NationalPark in #Wyoming. Snow still covers the towering, jagged mountains, but daytime temperatures are climbing into the 60s. Now that the roads are cleared, it’s a great time to explore @grandtetonnps.

@kenenisabekele ran during an early-morning training session at high altitude in Entoto, Ethiopia. @kenenisabekele is an 11-time world cross-country champion, a 3-time Olympic gold medalist on the track, and the world-record holder at 5,000 and 10,000 meters. He and a fellow Ethiopian, Haile Gebrselassie, are widely considered the greatest distance runners in history. Now, the physiologist Yannis Pitsiladis is trying to identify promising talent for an audacious plan: to use science to facilitate a sub-2-hour marathon by 2019, a decade or two sooner than many experts think. Yannis enlisted @kenenisabekele for his project. Through training and tests, he hopes to better understand what it might take for a runner — not necessarily @kenenisabekele — to make it. Visit the link in our profile to read about the scientist's quixotic quest. The photographer @urielsinai took this photo last September. #nytweekender
