The Irish Photographer Who Won A Pulitzer Prize, Was Banned By India, And Quit

Cathal McNaughton was returning to Delhi after winning a Pulitzer Prize for his photography of desperate Rohingya refugees fleeing Myanmar. “Without explanation, the Indian authorities escorted him back to the plane he’d flown in on and marched him down the aisle to his seat.

McNaughton’s life, as he had known it up until then, had disint...

Indian Cinema Is Finally Starting To Get Comfortable With Same-Sex Romance

Until just a few years ago, the very few times queer characters were shown at all in Bollywood movies were as figures of mockery. Now, very occasionally, a film with a sympathetic portrayal of same-sex couples or trans characters does come out of the big Mumbai studios. And more progress can be seen in India’s “regional” (non-Hindi-language) cinema. – BBC

Drinking Mugs Designed to Protect Moustaches Were Once a Thing

We all know Vikings had beards and moustaches, and if we look at the tankards they drank from (often made of horn, see below) we can see no provision to protect their facial hair from getting soggy. Unsurprising, as the Vikings were known more for their nautical brilliance than their hygiene.The British, however, are not the Vikings. When the British colonized India in the 19th Century, they were clean-shaven, whereas Indians typically sported moustaches, according to Atlas Obscura. And "account...

An Architect Says The Building Industry Pollutes The World, And Must Change

Stephanie Carlisle: “While architects are not fully responsible for steel manufacturing or concrete production per se, there is a direct line from the material specifications that architects write to the steel mills of China, the coal mines of Appalachia, the brick kilns of India, or clear-cut forests in the Pacific Northwest or the Amazon.” She says the design industry has to change, and quickly. – Fast Company

YD Talks: (A little more than) Ten Podcasts for Designers to listen to in 2020

I wasn’t really ever a fan of podcasts up until last year. You see, working from home comes with its perks, but also with its fair share of loneliness.
