Things of Interest: March

I know I'm a few days late, but here are a few interesting articles I found around the web this past month :)
Japanese man becomes a turkey using only a sweater.
  • This post on Oil Pulling sounds like it might be worth trying out.
  • Isn't this Crocheted Scarf Diaper Cake a great idea?! I love that they were able to incorporate it all together like that.
  • As a reader, I am always wishing I could read faster but still comprehend it all. This Spritz app seems to do just that, but honestly I'm not sure I like it. Be careful what you wish for, right?
  • This man was determined to make sanitary pads affordable to rural Indian women. It ended up costing him his family and many years of his life, but his obsession paid off. It's a really neat article and definitely worth a read.
  • I find the current push for solid schooling knowledge worrying in our school systems, but this article about the crazy new requirements for kids as described by a teacher who resigned over it was pretty unsettling. Children should learn through play - they are only children for so long. This direction is really sad.
  • Did you know that Harvard's library has 3 books bound in human flesh?
  • This photo project called Where Children Sleep is such a cool idea. Definitely go check it out.
  • If you live in Central or South Florida, the next few weeks offers a very rare opportunity to tour the new temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Fort Lauderdale. This local news story shows some of the insides. Also this weekend is General Conference. If you've ever been interested in what we believe, go here and watch starting Saturday at noon EST.
