Tune Into Tree.fm: An Online Radio Station That Streams the Soothing Sounds of Forests from Around the World

Walk into a forest. Stand perfectly still. Close your eyes. What do you hear? The sounds of birds, the rustling leaves, yes, yes…. But what’s that? And that? The forest is full of sounds you can’t identify! Curious sounds, far-away sounds, soothing sounds, sounds that are not the churning anxious wheels inside your head when you try to relax…. Experiencing ourselves around trees has several demonstrable benefits, as the science of forest bathing has taught us. Many of these have to do with vi...

What Happens When You Spend Weeks, Months, or Years in Solitary Confinement

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fh1n_SS8Fi0 The loneliness and isolation of quarantine is nothing to laugh about, though we might have heard grim jokes about solitary confinement in the last few months. We’ve also seen overwrought comparisons of social distancing to prison. These are, I think, release valves for real pain. One hopes the harrowing experience of the pandemic will give Americans some compassion for the lives of prisoners, a shocking number of whom spend years, even decades,...

LA County endures sharp one-day spike in coronavirus cases

Los Angeles County reported its highest daily number of new coronavirus cases in six weeks on Wednesday. Oct. 7. Public health director Barbara Ferrer said the one-day spike — 1,645 new cases — should not immediately sound alarms. The number is the highest daily total since Aug. 22. “While one day of a high number of cases does not indicate a trend, this is something we need to watch closely,” Ferrer said. The county has been struggling to lower its daily case numbers in hopes of moving out of t...

WalletHub: States With the Highest and Lowest Property Taxes

Sphero’s STEM robotics kit goes on sale

Following a crowdfunding campaign that raised an impressive $1 million earlier this year, Sphero’s STEM/STEAM kit RVR is now on sale. Announced back in February as part of the Colorado company’s first-ever Kickstarter campaign, RVR presents a bit of a change for Sphero in a number of key ways. For starters, it’s a move away from the remote control ball design that has defined the majority of its projects since the Orbotix days. RVR is a four wheel system — and more than that, in keeping with...

4 Reasons College Campus Visits Are a Waste of Time & Money

College campus visits are a ritual. A rite of passage. A requirement. And they also are mostly a waste of time and money. As the summer winds down, my team and I have been busy debriefing our students and their parents about whatever summertime college campus visits they have done in the past month or two. While my colleagues and I have done scores–if not hundreds–of campus visits as a way to research colleges, our families are embarking on these adventures for the first time. In our ...

Moody’s Bond Ratings for Higher Education and the US News Rankings

Moody’s Investors Service published a report this past Monday, in which it kept in place an overall negative outlook for the higher education sector. There are many colleges in financial trouble. (Inside Higher Ed reported on it; you can’t actually look at the report unless you subscribe to Moody’s, and that’s an expensive proposition if you aren’t in the investment biz). Some colleges have increased their financial reserves. That’s good. About 15-20% of colleges have added to their more...

June’s Desktop Calendar!

I intended to create a calendar before leaving on June 1 for my annual (in)courage authors’ retreat but it didn’t happen. I photographed some lovely water lilies last month and I’d hoped one of those images would work. Since I spent the last few days in Colorado—my first visit!—I thought I’d share a glimpse of those beautiful snow capped mountains. Going from record high temps in the 90s in Georgia to daytime highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s in Colorado was a welcome reprieve. I love the so...
