Ten Things for Sunday

Each Sunday, we round up items we have read on the internet your enjoyment.

  1. Alert: Adorable Birds discovered nesting in Arkansas wetlands for the first time. 
  2. This article about elevating stories of people of color hits very close to home for us here in Springfield, Missouri. 
  3. From climate change and Black Lives Matter to Tiger King and Taylor Swift, these are the factual films that best capture and explain what’s going on around us in 2020.
  4. This is what dignity looks like. Ocasio-Cortez slams Yoho’s explanation of foul-mouthed confrontation. 
  5. We welcome Dr. Leslie Seawright to the Board of Directors of Carbon Trace Productions. 
  6. I have dragged people in real life for being performative allies on the internet. Maybe that wasn’t the best way to go about it, according to this article.  
  7. 2020 Koren Men’s Fashion is a mood I always vibe with. 
  8. We Won $500 this week. Thank you, Community Foundation of the Ozarks

Here are the Sunday things for this week:
a collection of internet items the team has curated for your enjoyment.

  1. We entered into a contest and lost. Yes, I am bitter about it, but the video remains very cool. Help me by watching and sharing.
  2. Shout out to MSU’s paper The Standard for this insightful article about a local bar that I hope stays around forever and ever. LONG LIVE THE OUTLAND
  3. The only way we will ever create policies that work is if we listen to the people on the ground and reflect that to the data we can gather. Here is a great article from PolicyLink about Race, Risk, and Workforce Equity.
  4. On the bright side of the pandemic, author and cartoonist Galadriel Watson has this to say about online opportunities.
  5. In lieu of having a conversation in person, I now read conversations between authors I adore.
  6. Did she read my diary or my Tumblr? An entry from an online horse girl
  7. This week’s Documentary recommendation “The Birders” comes from our very own Jym Wilson who says “Not only is it about birds, birding and birders, NYC and specifically Central Park, but it’s about seeing and listening. Two things everyone should try to do more of.”
  8. CBS Sunday Morning has been a weekly part of my life since I can remember. This week’s story about one Washington City printing their own money leaves me wondering about the other unseen possibilities for our future.
  9. We met Alessandra Monsolfi when we went to Texas for “Witness at the Border” in January. We saw some of her amazing signs first hand but had no idea about her vast talent until now.
  10. The “Songs from the Street” student crew are officially in picture lock for the film, and they surpassed their fundraising goal! We are all grateful for the donations to make this film possible. We look forward to its premiere. More on that soon!

 

That is it for the internet this Sunday. Thanks for reading!
