Earth’s Interior | National Geographic

Inside the Earth

The Earth’s interior is composed of four layers, three solid and one liquid—not magma but molten metal, nearly as hot as the surface of the sun.

The deepest layer is a solid iron ball, about 1,500 miles (2,400 kilometers) in diameter. Although this inner core is white hot, the pressure is so high the iron cannot melt.

The iron isn’t pure—scientists believe it contains sulfur and nickel, plus smaller amounts of other elements. Estimates of its temperature vary, but it is probably somewhere between 9,000 and 13,000 degrees Fahrenheit (5,000 and 7,000 degrees Celsius).

Above the inner core is the outer core, a shell of liquid iron. This layer is cooler but still very hot, perhaps 7,200 to 9,000 degrees Fahrenheit (4,000 to 5,000 degrees Celsius). It too is composed mostly of iron, plus substantial amounts of sulfur and nickel. It creates the Earth’s magnetic field and

24 Surprisingly Divisive Pooping Habits

During one of the dreadful late-night conversations that freshmen in college have, my roommate casually mentioned something about the annoyance of taking off her shirt before pooping.

Wait, what?

“Um, you mean you DON’T take off all your clothes to poop? Isn’t that gross?” She was completely shocked that other people didn’t do this. To her, getting fully nude to poop was the normal way, and it had never occurred to her that people actually pooped with their shirts on.

Our bathroom habits, especially about going No. 2, are formed around ages 3–5, and after that we rarely actually see another human actually pooping. So we have no idea if these little habits we’ve been doing since preschool are “normal” or not.

To find out what’s really going on the bathroom, BuzzFeed created a poll — Are Your Bathroom Habits Weird? — that ran over the weekend. Over 300,000

Wedding Decor & Wedding Lighting

While the true beauty of your wedding will come from the love you and your partner share, you still want to create an unforgettable event. To do that, you may need the help of a wedding decorator and lighting specialist. While certain venues have their own unique shine, others look best when a professional helps you create the ambiance you’re after. Wedding decorators can help you style a wedding the way you want with unique decorations and beautiful lighting that will add an extra glow to your special day.

What Do Wedding Decorators Do?

In the wedding world, there tends to be a lot of confusion between the terms “wedding decorator,” “wedding designer” and “wedding stylist.” These terms are often used synonymously. It also doesn’t help that certain wedding planners offer design assistance, while some wedding designers fashion themselves as stylists and decorators as well.

For the sake of clarity,

Kitchen Vignettes by Aubergine

This recipe is deceivingly simple but so flavourful.

I’ve written before about the special place my heart holds for Tunisia, my dear friend Synda, and our shared love of cooking. This is a recipe she taught me, many years ago, a Tunisian classic called Ommek Houria. It’s kind of like a pesto, maybe more of a spread… some people even call it carrot caviar! You can learn from the pro and watch Synda preparing it on her beautiful online Tunisian cooking show here! I love this recipe because the ingredients are fairly commonplace, but the flavour combination is new and exciting.

A couple months ago, I volunteered to cook a benefit dinner to raise funds for the Madagascar School Project, and for the appetizers, I made little crostini (baguette toasts) with Ommek Houria, and also Slata Mechouia (a Tunisian dish of gilled pepper, onion, garlic, tomatoes all mashed up with

Transgender bathroom laws: Facts and myths

Supporters of so-called bathroom bills say they will protect public safety by ensuring that all people, including transgender men and women, use public restrooms that correspond to their sex at birth.

Opponents say their impact is much wider. Critics call them thinly veiled attempts to discriminate against and stigmatize transgender people to score political points.

Supporters make their case with a variety of arguments — some relate to public safety, others question the entire concept of gender identity. But is there evidence to back some of their claims? What can we glean from places with protections for transgender people?

Here’s a rundown of how those claims stand up to scrutiny.

Predators in bathrooms

The claim: Sexual predators will take advantage of public accommodations laws and policies covering transgender people to attack women and children in bathrooms.

The facts: Anti-discrimination protections covering gender identity have been around for years, and there
