80 to Ypsi
In this city, great things go unnoticed. People aren’t convinced to show their talent. My blog aims to be that catalyst. Great things are ahead.

Just a young man with big dreams. Ypsi. Flint. Ann Arbor. Sports. Gaming. Wrestling.

    Bleak and Dark New York City through the Eyes of @d_belov

    For more bleak and dark shots from the streets of New York, follow @d_belov on Instagram.

    “Everyday I find special moments happening on the streets of New York—a photo shoot for ‘Batman’ on the Brooklyn Bridge, or a movie set on Fifth Avenue. Even on bleak days I could show the dynamic life in the city. These things all inspire me,” says Instagrammer Dmitry Belov (@d_belov) who moved from Volgograd, Russia to New York six months ago. “I see New York through the movement of people, cars, and events. The roads of New York are mysterious, and they mesmerize me.”


    Powerful portraits of the Liberians who beat Ebola 

    To help humanize the overwhelming statistics, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and senior staff photographer at Getty Images, John Moore, visited an Ebola treatment center of the organization, Doctors Without Borders in Paynesville, Liberia. At the treatment center, survivors spoke about the brothers, sisters, husbands and wives they lost due to the disease. They also spoke of recovery, stigmas they continue to face in their villages and renewed hope.

    October 16, 1859: John Brown Attacks the Armory at Harpers Ferry

    On this day in 1859, abolitionist John Brown set out for the federal arsenal at Harpers Ferry, Virginia in an attempt to capture guns and incite a slave revolution. 

    Things didn’t go according to plan. The local militia pinned Brown and his men down. In the end, ten of Brown’s men were killed (including two blacks and both of his sons), seven were captured (two of these later), and five had escaped. 

    Brown and his surviving men were quickly tried, sentenced, then executed. John Brown’s statements during his trial reached the nation, inspiring many with his righteous indignation toward slavery. The raid ultimately hastened the advent of the Civil War.

    Almost 200 fucking years ago. And this shit is still going down to this day.
