When The First Lesbian Novel Was Banned, Its Author Got Support From All Over The Globe

Following a particularly nasty campaign from certain book critics, Radclyffe Hall’s 1928 novel The Well of Loneliness was blocked from publication and circulation in the UK as “obscene libel.” But thousands of letters poured in to Hall from supporters; one such read, “No one could finish your book, Miss Hall, without donning a sword and shield forever in the cause of inverts.” — The Guardian

UK Launches Campaign To Expand Music Therapy For Dementia Patients

Research has shown that musical activities have a variety of positive effects for dementia patients, but, despite encouragement from the NHS, financially strapped facilities often put music low on their list of priorities. A new campaign called Music for Dementia 2020 aims to change that. — The Guardian

When Designers Don't Consider That End Users Must Physically Clean Their Designs

One of my gripes with designers of multiple fields--architecture, interior design, industrial design--is that they'll often design things with no thought to basic maintenance. By which I mean cleaning.Here's a second-story window in my house. It is festooned with cobwebs, dirt and dust, and is impossible for me to access and clean (never mind open the window) because it is sited over a stairwell. In the photo it might look like it can be reached from the landing; trust me, it can't. I'll need to...

Zero-waste packaging is coming to a freezer aisle near you

This past year, frozen food made a comeback thanks to healthier and tastier options hitting your grocer’s freezer, and the debunking of the myth that fresh is always healthier than frozen. For the first time in five years, the frozen food market has grown, and consumers are starting to see frozen products as a healthy option for easy meal prep. Now, one grocer is taking freezer food to the next level with bulk bins and zero-waste packaging. In recent years, frozen food companies have shortened ...

A Quarter Of Young Adults In UK Never Go To Theatre: Study

“A study of 2,000 18-to-30-year-olds found that 24% of respondents said they never attend theatre performances, with this figure higher among men than women.” (On the other hand, this means that 76% of the respondents do go to the theatre at least once a year.) — The Stage

UK bans pet stores from selling puppies, kittens

In an attempt to protect animals from exploitation, the United Kingdom has passed a new law banning third-party commercial retailers from selling puppies and kittens. The U.K. government wants to crack down on “puppy farms” and make things more difficult for dealers who seem to have no regard for animal welfare. There was overwhelming public support for the ban of third-party sales, and Animal Welfare Minister David Rutley says the new law “is part of our commitment to make sure the nation’s mu...

Britain’s Film Industry Is Thriving Just Now, But They’re All Afraid Brexit Will Wreck It

“If there are members of the UK cinema community who think Brexit is a good thing, they are all but impossible to find. Actors and film-makers were virtually unanimous in their advocacy of the remain campaign before the 2016 referendum. They still are, but now they are, at least, resigned to the reality of Brexit, as much as any industry can be.” — The Guardian

Best Christmas Card Designs 2018

If there ever was a perfect time in the year to show to your customers how much you care, we couldn't imagine a better holiday than Christmas.

Is a flexitarian diet right for you?

Going vegan or vegetarian might be a good choice for your health — as well as the environment — but not everyone wants to take the extreme measure of cutting meat and other animal products completely out of their diet. So, over the past five years, many who want to live a healthy life and/or do their part in the fight against climate change have opted for the flexitarian diet. What is flexitarianism? Flexitarianism doesn’t go as far as veganism or vegetarianism, but it does include some ...

UK Government’s Brexit Proposal For Creative Sector Is “Huge Disappointment”

“Proposals to maintain the salary threshold, as well as the failure to include any measures to address the challenges faced by freelances, are hugely disappointing. It demonstrates government’s blindness to the major strains that Brexit and the current immigration system will have on organisations’ ability to recruit the talent they need.” – The Stage

This watch-face is made from the world’s blackest pigment

The world’s blackest pigment isn’t just some really dark shade of black. It’s so black it literally doesn’t reflect any light. Made from a substance that absorbs 99.9% of the light shone at it, this black is so insanely dark, the only thing scientists can agree is darker than it is a black hole, a cosmic entity so powerful that it ‘eats up light’.The idea of using the world’s blackest pigment on a watch face came to Chronotechna when they realized how difficult it is to read the time underwate...

Sound could replace lasers in surgery

Scientists announce the ability to simultaneously manipulate individual levitated objects. Using high-frequency sound waves may provide a safer alternative to laser microsurgery. Video of the research looks like a cartoon, but it's all real. For a while now, scientists have presented demonstrations of sound's ability to levitate and move suspended particles. It's pretty cool stuff, and you can find lots of amazing videos showing intriguing patterns made with acoustic waves. Now, though, mechani...

Should Britain’s Art Courses Warn Young People About Their Futures?

Lyn Gardner says that although UK government inspector Amanda Spelman has faced a massive backlash – for good reason – some of her statements were probably fair. “Watching each year as arts graduates head into the world sometimes feels like a David Attenborough documentary showing nature at its most brutal. As thousands of young people – who have been taught to call themselves artists but not necessarily given the skills artists need to survive – head for the choppy waters of the industry, they...

Woman’s Hour: Don’t Speak

Both a return and a break-up announcement, “Don’t Speak” marks two milestones for UK band Woman’s Hour. Drawn from their forthcoming second (and final) album Ephyra, the track’s beauty lies in delicate melodies and dream-pop hypnotism. With choreography and performances by Anders Hayward and Ellis Saul in the music video, it’s a stunning reintroduction to a band that will leave listeners with much to love.
