Evolution points to harsh realities we prefer to ignore. (Kevin Carter, a South African journalist, took this next picture of a little girl struggling to get to a nearby feeding station in Sudan. After 20 minutes, he chased the vulture away, but did not help the child any further. He was awarded a Pulitzer Prize for this photo in 1994, but committed suicide the same year, at age 33.) WARNING: This is a disturbing photograph. TAKE NOTES NOW

Darwin as a student… “Nothing could have been worse for the development of my mind… the school as a means of education for me was a complete blank.” “My father once said to me, ‘You care for nothing but shooting, dogs, and rat-catching, and you will be a disgrace to yourself and all your family.’” “But I do not believe that I should have succeeded beyond a very low grade… I did nothing except attend a few compulsory college lectures, and the attendance was almost nominal.” TAKE NOTES NOW

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
