Issue #72 - The Spaces in Between

Micro Issue - Summer break #3

I’m taking a break for the next few weeks, so this is a shorter issue than would normally drop into your inbox. I hope that you enjoy this selection of links and pics, feel free to get in touch, and look forward to catching up later in the summer.

We’ve escaped for a few days…

I'm typing on my phone, with a very poor connection, we are out of town, up in New York State so I'm going to make this super quick.

We're staying in a townhouse in Jamestown, home of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. I remember reading The Mambo Kings Sing Songs of Love, the book that became a film with Antonio Banderas. Desi features as an idol for the brothers Cesar and Nestor who have left their home in Havana for New York, to share their electrifying music and stories of passion and romance.

Downstairs we have a vegetarian restaurant and beer shop (although I'm trying to be good). I will miss mornings writing and reading, sitting out on the street with the sun on my face and a steaming coffee.

Here are a few things to keep you going in the meantime.

  1. I can't wait to see Sisters with Transistors, the documentary tribute to female composers, musicians, and inventors of electronic music.

  2. These Sharks viewed by drones are so close to the shoreline, but they really don’t want to encounter humans.

  1. Time to switch your search to DuckDuckGo, give it a try, give yourself a new front page of the internet.

  2. Friday will be the first Juneteenth Holiday.

  3. Read this article from 2020 by Prof.Jennifer Hurley - Rubrics and the Dehumanization of Education.

  4. Five lessons for forming better relationships with ELL families at Education Week.

  5. The winners and losers of the work from home revolution.

  6. Why cryptoart is bad for the environment and bad for so many other reasons. Just bad.

  7. Nintendo has a game for designing games.

  8. That’s all I have for you, see you next week.
