"If two men in a world of more than 7 billion people can provide €300million to restore Notre Dame, within six hours, then there is enough money in the world to feed every mouth, shelter every family and educate every child. The failure to do so is a matter of will, and a matter of system."

Guys: “Well you know, there were many people working on those algorithms, it’s not only Katie Bouman work but rather a team effort.”

Also guys: “Elon Musk is sending rockets on Mars, he makes electric cars, he invented tunnels, he’s such a genius, I love him.”

Dear science writers,

Stop enabling evil. The men targeting Katie Bouman, who was a team lead on the Event Horizon Telescope project that produced that image of the black hole at the center of M87, are not "trolls". Trolls want to get a rise out of people. These men are not just trying to get a rise out of her or anyone else.

They are misogynists. They hate women and can't stand the idea of a woman being successful in science.

Call them what they are.

Love,
Noëlle

5/The grand acoustics of its ribbed interior led to musical pieces written specifically to be performed inside the cathedral.

"The acoustics of that specific space are, in a pretty literal way, baked into the DNA of classical music," said one musicologist.

Notre Dame isn't some confederate statue erected in 1970. This was a world history site. We won't get it back. It's a tragedy, let people grieve. We know the RCC was shit, we know France was shit, but Notre Dame wasn't entirely shit. I'd cry if the Taj Mahal collapsed or if the Hagia Sophia was destroyed, it's not all about religion or the West or whatever you want to make it about. Sometimes it's just about the art and history itself.

All of civilization, all of the things we do on this earth are temporary and mortal and it is painful to admit so. Nothing lasts forever, not even these things that feel like they've been here forever.
