Nick Fury thinks it is very strange how much people worry about female S.H.I.E.L.D. agents on their period. He is not aware of any S.H.I.E.L.D. rule mandating if and when agents menstruate. He has lived a long life not bothering any woman about that kind of thing.
After Pepper found out that The Wizard of Oz was Steve’s favorite movie she got him aisle seat tickets to Wicked on Broadway and passes so he could watch a rehearsal. He loved it and drove everyone in the Tower crazy blasting the soundtrack through the loudspeakers for three weeks straight.
Music Fact: Classical musicians are 50% more likely to suffer permanent hearing loss than rock musicians. This is almost entirely due to exposure to bass drums; a single orchestral bass drum is louder than an electric guitar at maximum amplification, and provides one-third of the audible power of a standard 75-piece symphony orchestra.
Juxtapositions of Old and New in Tumbaco, Ecuador with @ivankphoto
In the small town of Tumbaco not far from Ecuador’s bustling capital city of Quito, the traditional ways of life are changing quickly. A superhighway is under construction. A new shopping mall sells name brand clothes. Corn fields are valuable real estate for apartment buildings. The folkways passed on for generations exist simultaneously with the latest digital devices.
In his series “Project Mi Barrio” on Instagram, photojournalist Ivan Kashinsky (@ivankphoto) shares these fascinating juxtapositions taking place every day. “The Ecuador that I’ve been documenting for the last 10 years, is going through a titanic shift,” says Ivan. “Old indigenous ladies walk their cows though the streets as people wait impatiently in their brand new sparkling clean SUVs. I am watching the old Ecuador slam into the new Ecuador right in front of my eyes. It’s a double-score when the two come together face to face.”
Project Mi Barrio is also about exploring the consequences of this global shift towards modernization. “Will people be happier as we slip into the future?” he asks. “What is being lost? These are the questions I want people to be thinking about when they see my images.”

Maria Hill and Clint Barton are like siblings. Maria will reprimand Clint for causing a Nerf war and then when he’s not looking she’ll shoot him in the back of the head. Maria will be stuck doing boring paperwork so Clint will cause a distraction that may or may not have to do with fireworks. Maria will pretend to be angry and then high five him when no one’s looking. When they team up they’re almost as deadly as Nat and Clint; but not quite.
Steve and Sharon have adopted a pet cat named Bucky that they talk to when the human Bucky goes away for weeks at a time.
