Doree Shafrir has written a really well done and somewhat terrifying piece about night terrors. She describes some her own night terrors—times that, while sleeping, she was sure her dream was reality: • “They are monitoring my breathing. If I don’t hold my breath and stay completely still, I am going to die. I am not allowed to move at all, or they will know, and they will kill me.”
Creative Mornings is a monthly lecture series started by Tina Eisenberg that now takes place in over 40 cities around the world. Last month’s New York speaker was Jessica Jackley, one of the founders of international micro-loan non-profit Kiva. The theme was MONEY. (She starts talking about the awkwardness of talking about money at about 13:00!)
Mitt Romney—how rich is he, really? The answer to that question can be found in these three graphs comparing his wealth to that of our last five presidents (you know, just normal middle-class dudes). No comparison, would be how to describe the graphs in two words. Insane, would be how to describe them in one. LOLOLOLOL, would be how to describe them on the internet.
