washington monuments


Attendees from across the country descended on the nation’s capital to speak up for science.

The March for Science unfolded on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, and in multiple cities around the world. Coinciding with Earth Day, the event drew researchers, educators and scientifically-minded people.

The event kicked off with open teaching sessions on the Mall, followed by a rally near the Washington Monument, and then a march that traveled to the U.S. Capitol building.

NPR spoke to some of the participants about why they decided to attend the March for Science.

Additional Korok Seed Locations

900 Korok seeds have been identified by players of The Legend Of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Thing is, there are actually 909 seeds in the game. Here are the 9 most secret Korok seeds that gamers have so far overlooked:

  • In Hestu’s Leaves: One of Hestu’s coveted seeds ended up under his “hat” of leaves. Climb him to find it.
  • Under Impa: If you simply walk up to Impa and pick her up like a jar or barrel, you will find a Korok seed where she sits.
  • Behind the “H” in the Hyrule sign: A few clever players have found this one as soon as they spotted the subtle nod to the big Hollywood sign in Los Angeles. Glide down past the hill it’s on to find a seed.
  • Behind Your Ear: Find the Magician near the Kohaku River and pay him to perform at your birthday party. He’ll pull a Korok seed out from behind your ear.
  • In The Loincloth of a Hinox: Don’t kill the Hinox on Eventide Island before you check inside its loincloth. You may be afraid of what you’ll see at first, but thankfully it’s just a Korok seed.
  • Under Ganon’s Toenail: You can only find this Korok seed during the final battle. Once Ganon’s true form is revealed, check under his toenail. Among all the sock lint you’ll find this seed. The lint can be used in cooking elixirs.
  • Solve Professor Layton’s Puzzle: If you can find this Nintendo crossover cameo, equip the Master Sword and it will remind him of a puzzle. Solve it for a Korok seed. Hint: The llama can’t leave its paddock until the bear is in the cave.
  • 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney: Speak to P. Sherman and place a pebble in his fish tank filter. When he empties it to clean it and install a new filter, you can find the Korok seed hidden inside, along with several exotic fish that you can cook.
  • At the Tip of the Washington Monument: The hardest seed to find isn’t in the game, but in the real world at the top of the Washington Monument in the capitol of the United States. Be sure to have a lot of stamina built up and plenty of food before you scale the monument. It’s a hard climb and you’ll likely be arrested for trying, but it will be worth it when you find that coveted final Korok!

“Just one sunbeam, please?” I found myself muttering as I watched a narrow break in the stratus clouds move east across the sky in the moments before sunrise Sunday morning. The sky was gray and drab at the time, and it lacked the vivid shades of red and yellow that I hope to photograph during my sunrise shoots.

Photographers know the pain of waking up before 5 a.m. to find that clouds have obscured the sunrise. The best sunrise colors occur on the edge of cloud decks and storm systems, but if the clouds move in too soon and completely cover the sky, the sunrise colors turn to shades of gray.

But the narrow break in the overcast gave hope to me and my photography friend, Dennis Govoni, who had joined me for the photo shoot at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. My hope was light from the rising sun could shine through the gap in the clouds to produce sun rays with shades of red and yellow light, giving a splash of color to the otherwise gray sky.
