washingtonpost Ricky Mullins shares a photo album filled with people from Decaturville Sportswear in Decaturville, #Tennessee.

The album is one of several that he found when the plant closed more than 20 years ago. Today, all traces of it have it vanished and nothing comparable has replaced the jobs that the town lost. (Photo by Bonnie Jo Mount @bonjomo / The Washington Post)

washingtonpost Imagine a vast septic tank that was continuously filled for 200 years without ever being cleaned out. This tank contains an enormous volume of smelly, black gunk – called “black muck” – that hosts harmful bacteria and suffocates most life forms. That’s the #ChesapeakeBay.

In this photo, Diana Muller flicks black muck from her hands after getting pollution samples in #Annapolis, #Maryland. (Linda Davidson / The Washington Post)

washingtonpost Mohammad Asif applies a cleansing mask to the face of Hamza Ali at a salon in Pakistan’s Swat Valley.

The Taliban once ruled this part of #Pakistan, but as fear of Islamist militants has faded, the area has started to modernize again. Now, residents flock to new shopping and entertainment outlets that would have been unthinkable when the Taliban was executing men for shaving or women for dancing.

  •   aprettysolitarylife Great news! 3w
  •   pakistan_page For those who don't know swat is hometown of Nobel Laureate Malala Yousafzai.However this i s a strange picture to portray the hard eared peace of swat. Real success in Swat is not about people applying cleansing mask (which they hardly need as swat‘s has one of country’s cleanest environment ) rather it is the return of tourism to this area which is called as Switzerland of Asia. 3w

  •   lolson19 There is so much more to this story. Shame on you for not expanding upon the reason behind the potential closure. Boko Horam is actively training & recruiting inside of the camp & it poses a very real threat to the Kenyans who have protected these refugees for years. Good for the Kenyan government for protecting their citizens. 4w
  •   strawberrystranger @lolson19 it's al-Shabaab, not Boko Haram. Boko Haram operates in west Africa. 4w
  •   lolson19 @strawberrystranger - reports are everywhere that Boko Haram is now in Kenya as well and active in the refugee camp. I was just with some local leaders from Kenya and they were telling us how BH is now very visible & present. 4w
  •   strawberrystranger @lolson19 wow, really? I couldn't find any news stories saying such. But I'd be very interested to read more about that, if you could point me in the direction. I used to live in Kenya so I've been following this issue for years. It's definitely a security threat either way. 4w

  •   tonididitonem @d_bew oh it's starting. It's starting they're trash. Liars. They tried to influence stuff against gray 1mon
  •   d_bew Yeah i know and its crazy how fox is running with this story 1mon
  •   tonididitonem Every white Person I know is spreading these lies and are tickled pink. They're even spreading Lies that he got hurt In a previous accident which is a lie. The media has done so much to demonize black people. It's sickening to think someone will go out of their way to publish lies to justify someone's death. @d_bew 1mon
  •   d_bew Do you think the officer will be punished? @tonididitonem 1mon
  •   tonididitonem Of course not. They will walk but a day is coming. These riots and burnings are mild. A day is coming when even the timid will stand up and fight @d_bew 1mon

  •   awong__ wow. this is so unnecessary. 1mon
  •   mikeygiambra The people rioting aren't being costly to the police or government, they are being costly to business owners and themselves. A protest is one thing, but riots are another. This is 2015, they need to take legal action on the police departments, not loot liquor stores and GameStop. 1mon
  •   allisonc221 So unnecessary...really? Baltimore is my hometown, I don't want it to be ruined by hood rat thugs who are burning buildings and cars. 1mon
  •   kurlznkupcakes2 Shame on you WP for not getting your facts straight regarding the 2nd man in the police van with Freddie Gray (R.I.P.)🏾 #getthefacts 1mon
  •   kurlznkupcakes2 @allisonc221 while I in NO way, shape or form, condone the looting or rioting, uncles & until you experience what MY people have to suffer in THIS community & so many other minority communities in the U.S.of A., mute your name calling. How many people in your family or community have been murdered by the police?! 1mon
  •   allisonc221 Well @kurlznkupcakes2 thanks for calling me on this. And honestly I know NOONE who was ever killed by police. I don't associate with criminals. I have the upmost respect for all law enforcement! 1mon
  •   kurlznkupcakes2 @allisonc221 I'm not sure exactly WHAT you're INSINUATING, but everyone who is affected negatively by cops isn't a criminal. Typical thinking of "certain folk." I don't associate with them either, but you don't have to associate with criminals to know someone who has been MBP. Innocent get murdered by the police & non-law enforcement consistently & it continues to escalate. And even if a person is a criminal, they're cuffed, it's not a license to assault or murder them. There are criminals in law enforcement as well, as will be proven. I also respect law enforcement, but I've been profiled by them too. I know my rights & each time I was stopped, it was BS. I am no criminal & little did they know, my boyfriend is one of them. So, unless you're a person of color & are profiled, pulled over, harassed or murdered by one of them, you shouldn't make assumptions. I won't assume your comment was racist. Perfect example (there are so many examples of that could be listed), that boy went into that movie theater & killed all those innocent people; he's still living... What rock are YOU living under? 1mon
