shaughn_and_john John Connolly is 9 years old and has been snowboarding since the age of 2. His preferred method of overcoming the fear of attempting something new is quite simple. John says he just does it. Researchers are looking into the question of whether kids like John are mentally ready for the type of risks they take while participating in #extreme #sports. The belief is children that young tend to underestimate risk. Are #extremesports safe for #kids? @shaughn_and_john produced a series of #videos for #NYTMag profiling young, and exceptionally accomplished, athletes. See @nytimes for more. @nytvideo 13h

emmalbo @nytimes Mounds of salt in #Bolivia, ready for evaporation and transport. An estimated 50 percent of the world's supply of lithium lies beneath the Salar de Uyuni in southern Bolivia. The increasing global demand for the element has prompted claims by Bolivians that the landlocked country will become the ‘‘Saudi Arabia of #lithium.’’ The use of lithium as a therapy for mental illness goes back to at least Greek and Roman times. But despite its widespread use as a mood stabilizer, only 5 percent of all lithium production is devoted to medication. Economists have been forecasting a lithium economy for decades. It may well be that, someday, every car, computer and wearable electronic device — not to mention our energy storehouses — will depend on lithium batteries. #NYTMag photo by Olaf Otto Becker. 3d

fabrizio_alessi The Hmong people are an ethnic group originating from the mountainous areas in the south of China. Their name comes from the dialect they speak. There are significant populations in Southeast Asia and the United States in addition to their Chinese homeland. The Hmong are severely persecuted today in Laos because of their anti-Communist role in the Vietnam War, and the American government's reluctance to help them met with much controversy beginning in the 1990s. Luckily, this led to the repatriation of many Laotian Hmong to the United States and other countries, but genocide against this group continues in Laos to the present day. Sapa Valley.
