"You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words.” Speaking at the United Nations climate summit, the 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg delivered a forceful speech criticizing world leaders for their inaction on protecting the environment. “People are dying, entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you.” Tap the link above to hear more of @gretathunberg’s words at the #climatesummit. Video by Reuters.
What homemade dish did you love most growing up? For Dorie Greenspan, it was baked apples. “My mother loved food, but she didn’t cook it and she didn’t want to” — except for this sweet treat, which she made often. “They baked in a Pyrex roasting pan until they were soft and their skins crinkled and were shiny from the juice that bubbled beyond the hollows’ borders. I found them beautiful. I still do.” Celebrate the start of autumn (for those in the northern hemisphere) with @doriegreenspan’s baked apple recipe at the link in our bio. @sarahanneward took this photo for @nytmag, with food styling by @gatton_michelle and prop styling by Paola Andrea. #🍎
At the 2019 Emmys, there were plenty of genuine surprises and historic moments between some expected wins. “Well, this is just getting ridiculous,” Phoebe Waller-Bridge said, laughing, after taking the stage to accept her 3rd Emmy of the night, the award for best comedy series for “Fleabag.” Waller-Bridge also won for best actress in a comedy and best writing for a comedy series. Jharrel Jerome won his first Emmy for best actor in a limited series for playing a wrongfully convicted youth in Ava DuVernay's “When They See Us.” But the most striking moment of his acceptance speech came when he called attention to the Exonerated Five — the men whose story of injustice and racist stereotyping the series brought to life — who stood, free and vindicated, in the audience. The Emmys is always a celebration of entertainment and imagination, but for a moment it became something else: history. “Game of Thrones” and Billy Porter also made history at the #Emmys: HBO's “Game of Thrones” for winning best drama series and tying the record for the most wins in that prestigious category, and Porter, one of the stars of FX's “Pose,” won best lead actor in a drama. It was the first time an openly gay black actor had won in the category. “The category is love, y'all. Love!” Porter said, using his character's signature catchphrase.

The block party is a quintessential New York City summer experience. That's why we sent 20 photographers across all five boroughs to capture the joy, the community and the dancing. "New York City loses an integral part of itself without the block party," writes our reporter @s_evangelina, who grew up in Harlem. "When humidity and temperatures are high and New Yorkers have only got one another, there's no better place to go than the block." In honor of the end of the summer, tap into our story for some of our favorite #blockparty scenes around the city. @elizabethdherman took this photo.
During Jane Goodall’s childhood, Tarzan was her role model. When she realized how chimpanzee habitats were being destroyed, she turned into a crusader. And now at 85 — with a lot of hope and the help of a bit of whiskey — the celebrated primatologist is still preaching to anyone who will listen. Her message is always the same: The forests are disappearing. The animals are going quiet. We’re running out of time. Visit the link in our bio to read our interview with her where she talks about her family history, her career path and how business leaders — and consumers — can make a difference. @guerinblask took this photo.
Tag a friend who has already eaten a dozen apple cider donuts this season. If you've got half an hour, you've got time for this recipe, which calls for the batter to be baked instead of fried, with dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg to get you in the mood for fall. For the most traditional result, a doughnut pan is recommended, but you can also bake these in a muffin pan. Click the link in our bio to get the recipe from @nytcooking.

“We’re here for some aliens.” They came from as far as Florida and Canada to the Nevada desert to “storm” Area 51 — in the hopes of finding aliens at the top-secret U.S. military base. It all started in June with a Facebook event, set for Friday, named “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us.” 2.1 million people signed up, officials started to worry, and the whole thing became a meme. (Its creator later said was a joke.) But for a few thousand people this weekend, the event was very real. And in the end, it appeared the invaders had come in peace. “We don’t have a Woodstock,” said Seth Carlson, 32. “I can’t tell my kids I didn’t make it to Area 51. This is history.” Jessica Pons (@ponsphotos) took these photos. Tap the link in our bio to see more from #Area51 👽
In his piercing memoir, Jonathan Van Ness talks about being an addict, a sexual abuse survivor and an out-and-proud “member of the beautiful HIV-positive community.” “It’s hard for me to be as open as I want to be when there are certain things I haven’t shared publicly,” @jvn, a star of Netflix's “Queer Eye,” told our reporter.

Horse-drawn carts are a staple means of transportation in Dakar, the booming capital of Senegal. But this traditional means of getting around is under increasing threat from motorized rickshaws. Some city officials see the horse-drawn carts as a vestige of a poorer country, incompatible with the modern highways of this city. But for many in Dakar, horses are the preferred method of transportation. “Taking taxis is for rich people,” said a Senegalese woman who paid about 50 cents for a ride home in a horse buggy. “We prefer to support these people because they are from the community.” Visit the link in our profile to see more. @yagazieemezi took this photo of one of the carts being used for trash collection.
Thousands of young people mobilized for a historic day of protests to goad world leaders into addressing what they call the climate crisis. “I noticed adults were not willing to offer leadership, and I chose to volunteer myself,” said Leah Namugerwa, a 15-year-old protest organizer from Kampala, Uganda, pictured in the 4th photo. “Environmental injustice is injustice to me.” Rarely, if ever, has the modern world witnessed a youth movement so large and wide, spanning across societies rich and poor, tied together by a common sense of rage. And thanks to the internet, they are organizing across continents like no generation before them. Who are these young protest organizers? What is driving them? What do they want? Our reporters spoke with 8 of the local leaders — from Mumbai to Melbourne to La Paz — to find out.

Meet the last of the dunk- tank clowns. David Simmons makes a living by shouting insults at passers-by at America’s small-town fairgrounds. They can take revenge: $2 for 3 baseballs and a chance to “drown the clown.” David, also known as Patches, is a dunk tank clown — an anachronism in a wet suit and waterproof makeup, a gravelly voice with a microphone roasting people hard while they’re in his sightlines. But his is a role that a more sensitive and inclusive world is now sweeping into the dustbin. Turns out Americans don’t really enjoy being insulted anymore. “They’re retiring left and right,” David said of others in the dunk clown business. “They’re being run out of town.” Visit the link in our bio to read more about the last of the dunk tank clowns #🤡. @libbymarch took these photos.
We're barely listening to the U.S.'s most dangerous volcanoes. The volcano pictured here, Mount Hood, a prominent backdrop against Portland, Oregon, is eerily silent. But it won’t stay that way. Regulations have made it difficult for volcanologists to build monitoring stations along it and other active volcanoes. If scientists miss early warning signs of an eruption, they might not know the volcano is about to blow until it’s too late. And that's a problem across the U.S. where there are 161 active volcanoes. Most volcanoes lack adequate monitoring and scientists remain concerned that red tape could continue to leave them blind to future eruptions, with deadly consequences. Visit the link in our profile to read about the steps one scientist and his colleagues took to prevent disaster at Mount Hood, and the obstacles they may still face. @amandalucier took this photo of Mount Hood.
