Meet the creator of Arranged! Link to full story in bio.
Nashra Balagamwala is a Pakistani designer living in New York City. “The inspiration behind creating Arranged! was my own journey and struggle to avoid getting an Arranged Marriage,” said Nashra. “As well as watching my friends get forced into loveless marriages with strangers their family picked for them.”

Here are some of @NASA's #eclipse2017 safety tips. Please see full NASA safety page for complete info 👉 "The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as 'eclipse glasses' or hand-held solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun; they transmit thousands of times too much sunlight. Refer to the American Astronomical Society (AAS) Reputable Vendors of Solar Filters & Viewers page for a list of manufacturers and authorized dealers of eclipse glasses and handheld solar viewers verified to be compliant with the ISO 12312-2 international safety standard for such products." - @NASA
