The Osage Indians were once the richest per capita people in the world due to oil reserves on their land. Congress then passed a law requiring court appointed “guardians” to manage their wealth. Over 60 Osage were murdered from 1921-1925, their land rights passed to the guardian
Three men were convicted and sentenced in this case, but most murders went unsolved. A late twentieth-century investigation by the journalist Dennis McAuliffe revealed deep corruption among white officials in the county at the time. Problems included failure of law enforcement to conduct post-mortem exams, falsified death certificates issued by the coroner’s office, and other activities among white officials to cover up the murders.
Dutch sex ed classes emphasize love, fun, and excitement, while US sex ed classes emphasize the mechanics and dangers (article)
Scholars have critiqued American sex education for its overemphasis of danger and risk, noting the cost to teenage girls…. [and] the missing discourse of teenage love in American sex education, and its effects on boys, who confront a broader culture that provides scant recognition of, or support for, their emotional needs.
In comparison, sex education in the Netherlands tends to frame boys’ and girls’ sexual development in the context of their feelings for and relationships with others. Curricula include discussions of fun and exciting feelings. They also validate young people’s experience of love.
At the ripe age of 137, White Wolf a.k.a. Chief John Smith is considered the oldest Native American to have ever lived, 1785-1922
A Ghost Army trooper paints an inflatable rubber tank modelled on an M-4 Sherman. The 23rd Headquarters Special Troops, an elite force whose speciality was tactical deception, was a matter of military secrecy until its declassification in 1996.
Military deception is as old as war itself, but the idea the Allied planners came up with represented something new: a mobile, self-contained deception unit capable of staging multimedia illusions on demand. The 1,100 men in the unit were capable of simulating two full divisions—up to 30,000 men—with all the tanks and artillery that the real units might be expected to have. The illusion might discourage the enemy from exploiting a weak spot by making the site seem as if it was heavily defended, or could draw enemy troops away from where real American units were planning an attack.
What is Financial Domination?
Financial Domination comes from a deep need for a loss of control. Financial Domination can be played in a myriad of ways but the main idea is a dominant woman seductively or harshly manipulating money from a submissive male.
For the submissive the idea of having a woman take money from him or manipulate him into a state of wanting to give money to her is incredibly erotic. In some cases the submissive male even dreams of complete financial ruination. This is extreme but has been done by many femme dommes in the past. Usually Financial Domination just involves the taking or giving of money either on a scheduled basis, through coercion or blackmail, or just out of an intense need to give.
Now for those of you who are reading this thinking, ‘you’d have to be nuts to get off on that,’ let me remind you that everyone has their own erotic fantasies however if you’ve ever taken a woman on a date, you’ve been financially dominated. If you’ve ever been screwed over in a divorce, you’ve been financially dominated. So don’t be too quick to judge. For some it’s painful, for others it’s very hot.
The traditional dress for unmarried Hamar women
Living in Iran isn’t all that bad – at least if you belong to the top one percent. An Instagram account called "Rich Kids of Tehran" has made that fact abundantly clear.
The account purported to show "the world how beautiful Tehran and people from Tehran are," and featured photos of Iranian youths flaunting Rolexes and Maseratis, sunning themselves by the pool, and living the high-life in general, much like rich kids everywhere.
Although seven young Iranian received suspended prison sentences and 91 lashes for posting their rendition of Pharrell William’s “Happy” music video, the repercussions the Rich Kids of Tehran are likely to face are apparently non-existent.
Most interesting were the photographs showing skimpily-clad women, in flagrant violation of Iran’s dress code, which mandates a hijab, or head garb, for women. Other photographs even showed what appears to be alcohol, also illegal in the Islamic Republic. According to Business Insider, though house parties and drinking are part of the lifestyle of Iranian youth, these activities are done behind closed doors, and definitely not exposed so freely over the Internet.
However, according to insiders, many of the youths featured on "Rich Kids of Tehran" are the children of Iran’s business elite and are therefore untouched by the regime’s harsh hand.

Pamlea Littky’s Photo Series ‘Vacancy’ Gives Us A Glimpse Of What It’s Like To Live In The Small Towns Of Death Valley
While driving between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, Pamela Littky, was exposed to the small towns at either edge of Death Valley, the legendary region of the Mojave Desert that hosts the hottest and driest climate in the US. Anyone who has ever been there can tell you that there is little else on either side except for long, empty stretches of straight-line desert highway. But the Mojave’s harshest conditions have not deterred all living things. The towns that both claim the title of “Gateway to Death Valley” – Baker, California and Beatty, Nevada – are tight-knit communities of people who remain settled where most merely pass through.
From domestic scenes to colorful bars, trailers to bingo halls, and always the harshly beautiful and unrelenting landscape, Pamela brings the everyday life of these communities to vivid relief. Melancholy, atmospheric, sometimes surreal, these photographs feature people who are proudly and vivaciously individualistic. The culmination of visits that spanned years, Vacancy depicts a way of life that seem to defy how the rest of the increasingly fast-paced, urbanized world operates.
