I can find only one major journalism organization -- the Guardian US -- that a) understands the accelerating threats to our democracy; b) relentlessly explains what is happening; and c) has proudly assumed the role of an advocate for saving democracy.

I'm fairly sure that other Big Journalism orgs understand. A (scant) few have even begun to give this the ongoing coverage it requires.

But apart from the Guardian, they can't be bothered to become the advocates we desperately need.

The Guardian is generally on point on such things.

They don't always get everything right but it is generally better researched and forward thinking on most things.

Excellent - Women in Maths - a short online intro to five notable women mathematicians by the Science Museum, London.

Thankful yet heartbroken to learn about Maryam Mirzakhani, Iranian-born mathematician and first woman to win the Fields Medal in 2014 for "her outstanding contributions to the dynamics and geometry of Riemann surfaces and their moduli spaces', who died at just 40 due to breast cancer.

Watching old movies that were shot on actual film brings me so much joy now. Such beautiful colors. It’s downright relaxing. I’m tired of the over saturated digital look almost every new production has nowadays.

"From abandoned tank shipwrecks in Jordan to dive-bombing gannets in Shetland, the winning images of the Underwater Photographer of the Year 2024 are better than ever.

Selected from over 6500 submissions worldwide, Dawson's work stood out not only for its artistic merit but also for its emotional narrative."

Now that's a cool application of AI.

"Three students have won a $700,000 prize after using AI to read a 2,000-year-old scroll burnt during the Mount Vesuvius eruption in 79AD.

The ancient text was unreadable until now after being charred in the Roman town of Herculaneum during the same eruption that destroyed Pompeii.

It is thought to have belonged to Julius Caesar's father-in-law and talks of music and food."

This was iconic. The reverence Luke Combs has for Tracy Chapman is obvious, singing only for her, his idol.

In love with the original, I wasn't particularly impressed with the cover but this duet is magic.

Where the war is quite understandably, about scotch. Not tape. And certainly not about defending the galaxy.
