Hello, Friends! No need to check your calendars. It’s not Friday yet. I’m posting this week’s link list early, because I’m headed out on a Pioneer Trek this morning, and I’ll be offline till Saturday. I’m going to cross my fingers that nothing too dramatic/rude happens while I don’t have internet and can’t moderate comments. : )
Here are a few things I’ve been wanting to share with you:
– Inspiring account of the activists leading the effort to reunite separated children with their parents by the court-ordered deadline.
– Astronomers just discovered 12 more moons of Jupiter. (WP)
– A thread from Ezra Klein I keep thinking about — “Imagine it’s 2012 and someone described to you everything we would know in 2018. Would this sound like a hazy, unclear state of affairs? Or would it sound like we actually knew more than enough — indeed, a terrifying amount?”
– Related: Jonathan Chait’s story which pulls together all the existing evidence that the Russians have owned Trump for many years, and that he is their asset and America’s enemy.
– Tickets for Color Factory New York are now available! They started from scratch and created a whole new exhibit in 20,000 square feet in Soho. I can’t wait to see it. (And the website is really cool.)
– The Extraordinary Life of Martha Gellhorn, the Woman Ernest Hemingway Tried to Erase.
– I continue to be very interested in the idea of a Universal Basic Income. (NYT)
– Your knowledge of a person may influence how you act toward others who who simply look like them.
– Have you ever cooked with a Dutch Oven?
– Roxane Gay explores her physical transformation and reckons with her new body’s unexpected power.
– It’s time to change how we engage with Jordan Peterson.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I’ll meet you back here on Monday. I miss you already.
