Every once in a while, (and sometimes each day) I listen to a great podcast, enjoy an article, or see a good video that I want to share with you.
I like to think of them as my e-links:
Friday’s e-links (1/25):
- The Trade Talks episode on “Slowbalization” had three perspectives on slowing globalization that were excellent–worth listening to the entire discussion,
Friday’s e-links (1/18):
- You can feel the enormity of the gender shift in Congress when you see this recreation of a NY Times special section.
- A shift during 2011 was almost equally significant. In 2011, women in the House finally got a restroom near the Speaker’s Lobby. Do note that before then, female Representatives had to jog (so as not to miss a vote) to the Lindy Claiborne Boggs Congressional Reading Room. In 2007, the House decided against adding the ladies restroom near the legislative chambers “because it was too expensive.” (Would they have said that to the men?) I have always believed that the number and nearness of restrooms can reflect power.
Friday’s e-links (1/11):
- All week I’ve been pondering a Hidden Brain podcast called “Yum and Yuck” that looked at the psychology of food. But what got me was three words: Anticipation, Experience, Memory. First we anticipate a meal, then we experience it, and after, we remember it. And because some of us are anticipation people while others care more about the memory, we perceive food differently. I am an anticipation person. You? Do listen.
Friday’s e-links (1/04):
- Last week’s episode of This American Life is up there in my list of the best all time podcasts. In three “acts,” about three different libraries, in rather unexpected ways, it conveyed what a library can be.
- This update and correction take us back to the NASA shutdown. They changed their minds after the New Horizons successful flyby and publicized the event.
