  1. Hella Juneteenth | “From henceforth, we decree Juneteenth to be an official national holiday that is recognized & celebrated in all 50 states and territories of the United States of America.” More here: How We Juneteenth.
  2. Historical Painting Is Altered to Show Most Declaration of Independence Signatories Were Enslavers | “Documentarian Arlen Parsa took John Trumbull’s famous work, ‘Declaration of Independence,’ and marked the faces of every man that controlled enslaved people with a red dot.”
  3. To show up imperfectly… | “There is no perfection in antiracism. But there is learning, unlearning, mindfulness, trying and doing. It’s a practice that requires practice.”
  4. The Creative Self Workbook | “When we began planning for the 12th Annual Adobe 99U Conference last year, it was clear we wanted to provide a holistic, engaging experience for attendees. In an effort to provide time, space, and a solid framework for self-exploration and self-reflection, The Creative Self Workbook was born.”

  6. A Visual Guide to the SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus | “What scientists know about the inner workings of the pathogen that has infected the world.”
  7. The 1850s map that changed how we fight outbreaks | “In this episode of Vox Almanac, Vox’s Phil Edwards explores Dr. John Snow’s map of the Broad Street Pump, which changed epidemiology forever. In 1854, news spread about a mysterious new cholera outbreak in London. At the time, doctors and scientists largely believed the disease traveled in a “miasma” — a floating cloud of sickness. Dr. John Snow suspected bad water might actually be the agent of transmission — and he wanted to prove it in time to stop the outbreak. Through a mix of personal interviews, clever detective work, and data analysis that included tables and a famous map, Snow managed to stop the outbreak and convince local public health officials, eventually, that cholera could be transmitted through water, not a miasma. Since his breakthrough study, the map has become an iconic piece of epidemiological history, as an illustration of keen detective work, analysis, and visual representation with a map that, even today, tells a story.”

A bigger problem? 73% of us ‘have no idea’ how our companies are planning to return to the office.”
  10. A four-day work week might be exactly what the U.S. — and its economy — needs right now | “’The pandemic has created a moment for businesses to take stock and consider more radical reconstructions of the workplace,’ experts say.”
