“In Event of Moon Disaster”, July 18, 1969.
White House speechwriter, William Safire, was asked to write a speech that President Nixon would make in case the Apollo 11 astronauts were stranded on the Moon.
It was never delivered, and this speech was quietly tucked away into Nixon’s records.

Where have you been and when are you coming back?
A month ago my creative partner Kevin Burg and I were married in New York City. Then, just for fun, we took a honeymoon trip around the world as captured through instagram (@_Frommetoyou). So we put story telling on pause here to take some time to just live with each other.
We are redesigning the blog and launch (hopefully) in one week. I have so many picture stories burning holes in my back pocket I can’t wait to share with you all. New cinemagraphs, fashion editorals, a personal journey and a whole new world.
Thanks for all the emails and well wishes and I’ll see you very soon,
Yuri Kozyrev—NOOR for TIME
To illustrate this week’s cover story on the Egyptian elections, TIME turned to contract photographer Yuri Kozyrev, who’s been documenting the Arab Spring since it’s beginnings in early 2011. Covering Egypt’s electoral process and runoff, Kozyrev captured the celebrations and protests after Mohamed Morsy was declared President. One of Kozyrev’s more powerful photos of a Morsy supporter was chosen for the cover of this week’s issue.
“We originally mocked up more than a dozen covers,” explained Victor Williams, TIME’s international art director, “but we were looking for a single, arresting image. We finally settled on this image [of a masked protestor] staring directly at the viewer. That the new President’s face appears on his mask is so powerful, with his disguised but commanding allegiance. We loved that he was staring directly at the viewer.”
Would you rather have a $5,000 watch or a $5,000 trip to Europe? Marc Cenedella of TheLadders.com predicts you’ll choose the trip. Why? “People are spending more and more of their time with experiences, rather than products,” he says in this video from The Economist’s Ideas Economy events series.
