“Dutch cheerleaders at the annual Tulip Festival in Orange City, #Iowa. The photographer @mapledipped, who visited in May 2014, said many of the town’s residents have Dutch roots. It was her favorite place to stop in the U.S. during her travels for #EUSA, a photo project that documents Americans exploring their ideas about Europeanness and Europeans honoring what they see as Americanness. This weekend, to celebrate the #4thofjuly, we’re sharing photos from #EUSA, which @mapledipped plans to publish as a book.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“Visitors in costume at Pullman City, a theme park near the Bavarian town of Eging am See in southern Germany. The park, which celebrates the American Wild West, is one of many @mapledipped visited in Europe for her photo project, #EUSA. She photographed Europeans expressing their ideas about Americanness, and Americans exploring their ideas about Europeanness. The people @mapledipped met are united by their enthusiasm for a mythologized past. We’re sharing her photos for #nytweekender this #4thofjulyweekend.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“Bernese mountain dogs at Maifest in Leavenworth, Washington. The photographer @mapledipped visited Leavenworth, a mountainous town a couple of hours from Seattle, in May 2014. She was intrigued by the festival — one of a number she found in the United States honoring European traditions. But her journey didn’t stop in America. Since 2008, @mapledipped has been traveling to Europe, too, in search of people celebrating Americanness. We’re sharing photos from her series, #EUSA, for our #4thofjuly edition of #nytweekender.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“"Bandits” straight out of the Wild West — at High Chaparral, in #Sweden. “The train would slow down and there would be these actors in Swedish doing a holdup of the train,” said @mapledipped. “This kid was super into it.” She visited this amusement park in June 2008, shortly after she started working on a series of photos of American-themed places in Europe and European-themed places in America. We’ll share more of @mapledipped’s photos, from the series #EUSA, for our #4thofjuly edition of #nytweekender.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“Street scrubbers at the annual Tulip Festival in Orange City, #Iowa. The photographer @mapledipped visited in May 2014. She said most of Orange City’s residents came out for two days of dancing and parades during festival. Since 2008, @mapledipped has been searching across the United States for places that celebrate European culture. Meanwhile, she has been doing the same thing in Europe for her photo series, #EUSA. “Am I in America?” she wants you to ask yourself. Or, “am I in Europe?” We’ll share more of @mapledipped’s photos for our #4thofjuly edition of #nytweekender.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“God moves in mysterious ways — especially when it comes to real estate in #LosAngeles. That’s where a group of nuns are in a disagreement with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles over the sale of an eight-acre hillside estate, which @malmeidapix photographed today. @katyperry, the gospel singer-turned-pop star, who has the word “Jesus” tattooed on her wrist, hopes to buy the property. She’s offering an all-cash deal favored by the archdiocese. The pair of nuns at the heart of the debate insist that their objection to @katyperry’s bid has nothing to do with her approach to entertainment. It’s just that there’s another bidder, the restaurateur and developer Dana Hollister. “We feel terrible about what’s going on,” said Sister Catherine Rose Holzman, 86, who has been with the order for 32 years. “We’d like to have a nice, friendly talk and iron this out.”” By nytimes on Instagram.

“"This 1920s version of Betsy Ross is up to her neck in stars and stripes as she works on a U.S. flag for the Army,” reported @nytimes in 1927. “She is one of the many workers at a #Philadelphia facility that supplies all #flags to the government.” This photo was published in the Mid-Week Pictorial in 1927. @nytimes published the photo periodical, which was sold separately from the newspaper, from 1914 to 1936. We found the #tbt photo in our newsroom archives, known as “the morgue.” #🇺🇸" By nytimes on Instagram.

“Even in late June, ice clotted Frobisher Bay in #Iqaluit, where teams from across Nunavut met to compete in a soccer tournament. Sports, like most aspects of life in the Canadian Arctic, are not easy. Weather conditions on the tundra make it difficult to play soccer, so the game is often played indoors, on basketball courts. “Around here, you’ve got to be flexible with a capital F,” said Dawn Currie, the coordinator of the tournament. @ianwillms was on #nytassignment in #Nunavut last week for @nytimessports.” By nytimes on Instagram.

“We love a mystery where no one guesses exactly what wet specimen we are showing! It shows just how rare the specimens in our museum are and it’s a great opportunity for learning! A few of you were close guessing colon, great job! This is called a cast. It is not actually the colon itself, but rather the lining of the colon only. This is a super rare specimen and has only been described in the literature a few times. The bowel from the esophagus to the anus is basically a long tube. This tube is made up of layers including an outer surface, a middle layer which is muscle (to help food move along) and the inner layer or lining. In rare documented cases including occlusion of the mesenteric artery (which is the main blood supply to the bowel), pancreatitis and graft vs host disease (GVHD) to name a few, the lining of the bowel can become detached from the muscle wall and defecated out from a live person through the rectum.
