It has been five years since a gunman killed 20 schoolchildren and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. It was one of the deadliest shootings in U.S. history, and again sparked a heated debate for increased gun control, including stricter background checks. On the anniversary of the tragedy, we remember that fateful day and the lives that were lost. #sandyhook #newtown #guncontrol #inmemoriam

"Most people think #poetry is a vehicle of expression," poet Major Jackson says in this week's @briefbutspectacular. "I see poetry more as a vehicle of exploration." He reads some of "Stand Your Ground," his poem on #race relations in #America. The name of the poem is based on the Florida law that was a point of controversy after teenager #TrayvonMartin was shot and killed in 2012. #BriefButSpectacular

What has flippers like a penguin, a neck like a swan, posture like a duck and stalks prey like a velociraptor? It’s the newly discovered Halszkaraptor escuilliei or “Halszka”– a bizarre, semi-aquatic dinosaur with a collage of features never seen in any other prehistoric creature.

On Wednesday, researchers reported in Nature that this brand new dinosaur genus and species lived about 75 million years ago during the Campanian stage of the Cretaceous period. Halszka was the size of a modern-day goose, and despite its amphibious lifestyle and small stature, it was a predatory raptor akin to its relative the velociraptor.

Sean Graesser (@gourmetbiologist), a conservation photographer and field biologist, says he snapped this picture of a Red-legged Honeycreeper during a population survey of habitat usage. "It’s an amazing species that feeds on fruiting trees, and they move around seasonally in mixed feeding flocks, searching for the trees fruiting at different elevations," he tells us. "They can be found in a wide variety of habitat, from the forest edge to the deep rainforest."

Ask Lin-Manuel Miranda what he remembers most about Hurricane Maria, and he says "silence." That silence inspired Miranda to step into a new role as an emerging political activist. The Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, composer and actor is calling on Congress to do more to help Puerto Rico recover from the devastation of Hurricane Maria, which struck the island two months ago. #puertorico #hurricanemaria #linmanuelmiranda #hamilton #hurricanerecovery

Cranberry growers want to nix the notion that the super fruit is just for the holidays. @paul.solman reports for @NewsHour tonight. #cranberrysauce #argriculture #food

In Zimbabwe, this young girl wears a prayer dress unique to apostolic Christians. The faith has converted many people in the country with promises of deliverance, magic and wish fulfillment. However some Zimbabweans view the faith as a cult that takes money from already impoverished people.

"I told my story [of harassment] to encourage women on the Hill to come forward and know that they have an ear that will listen to them" says Representative Jackie Speier about her dedication to harassment reform. Speier and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand have introduced a bill that would require more transparency in reporting sexual misconduct, and better support for whistleblowers and victims. #metoo #Sexualassault #reform #sexualmisconduct
