Thanks to Josh Miller for sending these great shots. You can find all his photos on Instagram @Millerslens. Josh writes:

“I am a local photographer and ran into a Cooper’s Hawk on Sunday while taking out my trash behind my house in Adams Morgan. Ran back to my house and grabbed my camera and was lucky enough to snap the attached shots before it flew away. Interestingly enough, I saw another hawk yesterday over by Manhattan Laundry so it appears that there is an abundance of them in the District right now!”

More amazing photos after the jump. Not for the weak of heart or friends of rats… (more…)

The Outrage’s website says:

“during childhood, limits did not exist. we hosted cooking shows, made chemistry labs in the kitchen, built amusement parks in the backyard, held our own on football and soccer fields, and put on numerous art shows and plays. as grown-ups, we mostly have fun too, filling our days with playful antics, serious conversations, and incessant brainstorming. but adulthood also threw us face-to-face with senseless limitations. and we can’t help but feel outraged.

outraged that on average a woman still makes $0.78 to a white man’s $1.00 – and for black women that number is $0.63 and for hispanic women $0.54.

outraged that stereotypes about women in science are ingrained early.

outraged that fear of sexual assault is all too common and that perpetrators are rarely brought to justice.

outraged that paternal leave is virtually unheard of.

outraged that women-led companies receive a tiny fraction of venture capital funding.

we founded The Outrage as a way to channel our feelings and connect with others who support equality and smash limits, stereotypes, and barriers.

“Dear PoPville,

Have you heard anything about the fireworks that were set off last night at 6:30pm in Kalorama Park?”

I got tons of reports and confirmations @PoPville on twitter last night but nobody was able to provide more info. Think somebody came into a nice personal stash or was this an organized/semi organized thing?

“Dear PoPville,

My +1 and i were walking down the block tonight (1/8) to The Diner in Adams Morgan, and there was a Uber/Lyft small Kia SUV blocking northbound traffic on 18th. Maryland plates, naturally. After a good 5 minutes of folks honking, a cop (stuck in the traffic about 5 cars back) got out and approached the driver to tell him to either pull over or keep driving because he’s causing a serious jam.

Props to the cop for a) taking simple, but effective and appreciated action, and b) getting out of his cruiser in this 5 degree weather to shame the Maryland driver. Us DC residents always love an opportunity for the latter.”
