Dramatic Photos of Ocean Waves As Seen Through the Eyes of a Buddhist 

Niigata-based photographer Syoin Kajii’s series Nami shows a fascinating amount of depth in what would seem a relatively simple subject: the ocean waves of Sado Island, in Japan. Kajii, who is a Buddhist monk, has managed to capture fantastic differences from one wave to another, with variations in color, texture, density, and tone, showing us that if one looks in a certain way, a massive variety exists right before us in the simplest things.

新しいことを始めるのは勇気がいったりドキドキしたり不安でいっぱいになるけど

Outside the lab, Piff found that the rich donated a smaller percentage of their wealth than poorer people. In 2011, the wealthiest Americans, those with earnings in the top 20%, contributed 1.3% of their income to charity, while those in the bottom 20% donated 3.2% of their income. The trend to meanness was worst in plush suburbs where everyone had a high income, and never laid eyes on a poor person. Insulation from people in need, Piff concluded, dampened charitable impulses. Poorer people were also more likely to give to those charities servicing the genuinely needy. The rich gave to high-status institutions such as already well-endowed art galleries, museums and universities, while Feeding America, which deals with the nation’s poorest, got nothing.
