Weekend Links

by Dr. Punita Rice Miscellaneous

Happy Friday! What are you doing this weekend? If you need or want some weekend links or things to read, I’ve got you covered. Here are some weekend links for your perusal. Read on if you’re interested…

Have you ever wondered what zoos and aquariums do with their animals during hurricanes and natural disasters? Here’s an NPR piece on that. (It’s sad but interesting).

A trick with a cup of ice and a quarter that can help you figure out if your food is still safe if you have to evacuate your home.

“In the pantheon of visual metaphors for America today, this is the money shot.”

An alarming question: Are many of our fellow American citizens Nazis?

On immigration: You don’t need to be talented to be welcome.

Singer P!nk chats with Ellen about why it’s bizarre for a mom to ever be shamed for breastfeeding her baby in public.

Also, another happy thing for these weekend links: the evolution of “woman” in stock photos.

Also, if you find something interesting for me to include in next week’s roundup, please share it with me on twitter (@punitarice)! Tomorrow, we’ll talk about life before kids.

What are you up to this weekend?
