Open-Minded: Deadly fascination

When I was a kid, I wanted to be Nancy Drew. I bought the kinds of clothes she was said to wear in the books, and I always carried a notebook around with me to write down clues. I was Sophie, the third-grade detective.

Open-Minded: Changing traditions

We all remember waking up our parents up at 7 a.m. Christmas morning to run down the stairs and see the presents Santa Claus left under the tree. My family traditionally would wake up, eat muffins and bacon and open gifts. After opening all of the presents, we would get dressed and head down to southern Indiana to see our extended family. We would always spend the night at the Holiday Inn in Columbus, Indiana. Why? Simply because it’s a tradition.


This time series shows carbon monoxide associated with fires from the Amazon region in Brazil from Aug. 8-22, 2019. Made with data collected from the Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) on NASA's Aqua satellite, the images map carbon monoxide at approximately 18,000 feet (5,500 meters) altitude. Each "day" in the series is made by averaging three day's-worth of measurements. Credits: NASA/JPL-Caltech

Open-Minded: Critical currents

Growing up in Westfield, Indiana, I knew we had a newspaper but I never read it. I usually just watched the local news in Indianapolis – which I don’t really constitute as “local” – and read about global events online.  But, this summer I had the amazing opportunity to intern for one of those newspapers I never really read – the Current.

Open-Minded: Out of service

You open your phone after a long day of classes, homework and social-life drama. All you want in your life is to text your BFF, turn on the new Ariana Grande album and check Instagram for the 100th time that day.  But, as you hit your home screen, you get a pop-up message: “Please login to iCloud account.”
