The Game Goes On Harlem Fire 1975

This 1975 photo embodies a time period when urban grime and destruction reigned supreme throughout New York’s Harlem. Given the racial turmoil during this time, even when firefighters were called to save a burning building they often ran the risk of being assaulted while doing so.

The ISIS Militant Terror Group In Photos

August 30, 2014

Whether they go by ISIL or ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant or Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, respectively), the Sunni jihadist group in the Middle East is a terror group unlike any other. In fact, they have committed crimes so disturbing and heinous that even al-Qaeda distanced itself from the group after they publicly disobeyed orders to kill fewer civilians in Syria.

After releasing a video showing graphic footage of the beheading of American journalist James Foley, along with tweeting numerous images showing captured civilians being tortured, dismembered and executed, it is no surprise that the world is concerned by what this radical and increasingly powerful terrorist organization will do next. This gallery offers a glimpse into the actions of the extremist (so extreme that some of its supporters have ordered “Islam for Dummies” before shipping off to the area) ISIS group.

The Thinking Behind Rorschach’s Famous Inkblots

Rorschach Inkblots All

In 1921, Swiss psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Hermann Rorschach wrote Psychodiagnostik, which would become the basis for his inkblot test, a test designed to reveal the underlying personality of an individual based upon what feelings and images each inkblot evokes in the viewer. After working with multiple inkblots, Rorschach selected 10 for the test. When Rorschach died the following year, psychologists Samuel Beck and Bruno Klopfer modified his test scoring system. John Exner further standardized the test. Rorschach intended for the test to be used for diagnosing schizophrenia, but psychologists have since used the test to determine personality types.
