  1. The Iranian flag: The national emblem, "Allah," is written in the center, and the "takbir" is written 11 times both at the bottom of the green stripe, and at the top of the red stripe.
  2. Such sad news: Maryam Mirzakhani has passed away. "Maryam Mirzakhani, Mathematician, Dies at 40" by Daniela Breitman on earthsky.org
  3. Saying the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art has over 3,000 holdings wouldn't do it justice; it's *what* some of these holdings are that have such significance. "Inside Iran: Billion Dollar Masterpieces" by Michelle-Caruso Cabrera on video.cnbc.com - it's worth watching the video. The true treasures were collected in the late 70's by the wife of the Shah of Iran, and they are simply unbelievable. I guess when you're fleeing for your life, certain things need to be left behind!
  4. "Iran City Hits Suffocating Heat Index of 154 Degrees, Near World Record" by Jason Samenow on washingtonpost.com --- ETA: See Post #3 for an update.
  5. The Kurds are an ethnic people based in Kurdistan - a region without a county which occupies portions of (going clockwise on the top map which follows): Armenia, Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Turkey. If this seems strangely familiar, take note of the right map which depicts ISIS (i.e, "The Islamic State"). This ugly, overlapping border, despite Kurdistan having little to do with ISIS: "The Fight Of Their Lives" by Dexter Filkins on newyorker.com From what I gather, the Kurds are caught in the middle of this, and don't want to be. This issue is of global importance, and it's pretty pathetic how I picked up on it: MI-5, Season 1, Episode 3: "One Last Dance."
