meanwhile, elsewhere


It’s Friday’s online finds: Cozy up and dig in.


  • The eerie inhumanity of Donald Trump—I blame him for then leaving state and local governments to fend for themselves, mobilizing federal resources belatedly, weakly and inconsistently. And I blame him for the small-minded America First obsession that made it impossible for him to learn from other countries. (NYT —via Kristin)
  • Remember Reading? (Harper Collins —via Sophie)
  • The Environmental Film Festival was cancelled but you can watch them online.
  • And if you are at home cooking, this podcast with Samin Nosrat and Hrishikesh Hirway is for you!
  • If you’re looking for a good Netflix binge, I recommend this and no, it has nothing to do with tigers! (NYT —via Sarah)
  • Banana bread feels like a good idea (Smitten Kitchen)
  • Food Safety and Coronavirus: A Comprehensive Guide (Serious Eats)
  •  “It is amazing to me that it was just 3 days ago that we made the decision to close schools. In less than 72 hours, Team Duval moved the entire district to an at-home, virtual instruction model. We have managed to troubleshoot the mobilization of meal programs, lack of technology equipment, online teacher training, and a whole host of issues that come with a change of this magnitude. Three days!” Three days to create, print and distribute about 5 million pages of instructional content. Three days to load classes onto an online platform. Three days to gather online resources so aligned instruction could continue to take place. Three days to train about 8,000 teachers in a whole new way of work. Imagine that! (NPR)
  • This year’s Easter Passover Seder—it’s the season of ZOOM (swissmiss)
  • And on a personal note, my marathon is cancelled (not a surprise) and my chronic-back pain is back and is keeping me from running (not a surprise) so I’ve been doing yoga. If you are one of the few who has not done Yoga with Adriene, I strongly recommend her—she’s teaching me how to take deep breaths stretch.

I can’t wait to see you on the other side! xo
