Well, hello! A very pleasant Monday to you. Here comes week two of 2017. Are you ready? We’re in that kind of weird post-holiday period where we got all hyped up and now it’s over. What happens next? A lot of cold and quiet for most people, I suppose. Let’s fill it up with good things. No reason for the midwinter to be bleak.
Here’s some of the most interesting stuff I saw this week:
Music has forever changed because of the microphone.
Has a favorite restaurant of yours closed recently? It’s nearly impossible to keep one going nowadays.
With fewer than 30,000 left worldwide and a rapidly warming climate, “the future for polar bears is pretty bleak.”
We still haven’t figured out work-life balance.
The National Institutes of Health now recommends introducing peanut products to babies in their first year to decrease the chance of allergy. Fascinatingly counterintuitive.
If we gave everyone checks to cover their basic needs, would it lead to laziness?
Have a wonderful week!
