The Sublime Alice in Wonderland Illustrations of Tove Janssen, Creator of the Globally-Beloved Moomins (1966)

Sometimes describing a classic work of literature as “timeless” draws attention, when we revisit it, to how much it is bound up with the conventions of its time. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland emerged from a very specific time and place, the bank of the Thames in 1862 where Charles Lutwidge Dodgson first composed the tale for Alice Liddell and her sister. The future Lewis Carroll’s future bestseller became one of the most widely adapted and adopted works of literature in history. It never nee...

How Inequality Keeps People from Voting

“We’re all in the same boat.” That’s a phrase we’ve heard over and over again since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Indeed, we all live under the threat of a deadly disease—and a majority of Americans have adhered to public health guidelines asking us to stay at home as much as possible and wear masks when we leave. In that sense, we are in the boat together. At the same time, however, millions of Americans lost their jobs as a result of the pandemic lockdown. Millions more are living unde...

The Italian Moschetto Modello 91/38 Cavalleria Carbine

Compact and hard-hitting, the Carcano is a very underrated rifle. U.S.A. -( The Italian Carcano rifle, probably the most maligned, made fun of and possibly hated military bolt action rifles in existence. I’ve heard of them described as inaccurate, barely workable, and other terms that involve a smattering of four-letter words, but are they as bad as they’re made out to be? When mentioning the Carcano rifle of any kind, the first thing that comes into mind is, of course, the role ...

Daycares In Finland Built a 'Forest Floor,' and It Changed Children's Immune Systems

omfglearntoplay shares a report from ScienceAlert: Playing through the greenery and litter of a mini forest's undergrowth for just one month may be enough to change a child's immune system, according to a small new experiment. When daycare workers in Finland rolled out a lawn, planted forest undergrowth such as dwarf heather and blueberries, and allowed children to care for crops in planter boxes, the diversity of microbes in the guts and on the skin of young kids appeared healthier in a very sh...

Customer Happiness | 4 Tips to Measure What Truly Matters

Do you want happy customers?  Of course, you do. No business wants unhappy customers. But how do you know they’re happy? Repeat business isn’t necessarily a sign of happiness, as proved by the concept of customers as hostages (when customers don’t want to buy from you, but feel like they don’t have a choice.)  Is it, in fact, even possible to measure happiness?  Every year the United Nations publishes its World Happiness Report , ranking the planet’s countries in order of the happiness...
