A pair of orphaned elephants nuzzle up to a blanket which replicates the sensation of cuddling up to their mother at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s elephant orphanage in Kenya. The babies require specialised 24-hour care as they are hand-reared ahead of reintegrating them back into the wild at a later date.

Los Angeles is known for many things: great weather, a laidback lifestyle, and Hollywood’s biggest stars. But for many who live in La La Land, the pressure to conform to a certain beauty standard can leave them feeling downright depressed.
At the beginning of every AA meeting, various lengths of sobriety are celebrated with a presentation of a chip or birthday cake. At my first meeting, I sat back in my chair wondering why anyone would want to celebrate 90 days without drinking. I was fucking baffled. What are these people doing at weddings? During New Years Eve? Night Clubs? This week I got my 6 month chip and all I’m trying to do is work six more months. Not just because I will have spent an entire year working through all of the resentments and amends that had kept me in my addiction but because I get a huge cake at every meeting I attend. Fuck Yeah Sobriety.
I knew it would happen. House of Cards will be ruining the next three days of my life.
