7 Days. 7 Highlights.
That's how I would describe how my week has gone. It's been one of the most challenging and tiring weeks in recent memory. I continually try to convince myself that I am an adult, and then I end up staying up past 3AM on Tuesday night to get a project done on time...shooting me right back to feeling like I'm a college freshmen again.
But, Friday made it here none-the-less! Here's my roundup from the week:
- "Over the years, the International Finance Corporation, the investment arm of the World Bank, has sunk more than $1 billion into luxury hotels in the developing world. These projects, like all those undertaken by the IFC, are supposed to boost 'shared prosperity.' But the returns for the poor living in those countries have been largely disappointing." Learn more about these luxury hotels that are failing at their main objective.
- Here's the next major step in detecting cancer.
- The awkward history of the "Nazi salute" in the USA that I've never heard about...
- Wanting to start using a standing desk but don't have the money? Check out the affordable ORISTAND.
- "If children of color cannot grow up to be part of the middle class, there won't be one." Check out this article detailing the importance of helping young children and how it is key to fighting poverty.
- The Bermuda Triangle may finally be solved. (Unless you believe, like me, that it's the work of aliens.)
- Do you long to be a morning person? This life hack may help you out.
Oh, and here's a quote I've been mulling over for the last several weeks: "What's on the other side of fear? Nothing." (Often, our fears are unfounded and over-hyped.)
Keep learning. Face your fears. And let's make a better tomorrow, together.
