Rethinking the Placebo Effect: How Our Minds Actually Affect Our Bodies | Brain Pickings
"Among the most intensely interesting pieces in the collection is one by science journalist Jo Marchant, who penned the fascinating story of the world’s oldest analog computer. Titled “Heal Thyself,” the piece explores how the way we think about medical treatments shapes their very real, very physical effects on our bodies — an almost Gandhi-like proposition, except rooted in science rather than philosophy. Specifically, Marchant brings to light a striking new dimension of the placebo effect that runs counter to how the phenomenon has been conventionally explained." - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet

Video: Comprehensive Introduction to Macro Photography
"Landscape photographer Tim Cooper is a name we just recently shared with you. Today, we’re sharing his work with you again, this time in the form of a presentation he shared at a B&H event earlier this year. In it, he gives a detailed look at the world of macro photography. The presentation is a whopping hour-and-forty-five minutes long. In it, Cooper speaks through an incredible amount of detail in both information and tips. From the basics, such as what the equipment best suited for macro photography, to the more complicated aspects such as planes of focus and magnification ratios." - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet

The Saddest Poem Ever Written
"“Spring and Fall,” written by Gerard Manley Hopkins in September, 1880, and collected in his Poems and Prose, is the saddest poem ever written. I have been moved by other poems, including “Rock Me Mercy” by Yusef Komunyakaa, “Saying Goodbye to Very Young Children” by John Updike, and “Aubade Ending with the Death of a Mosquito” by Tarfia Faizullah. There are countless more poems, published and unpublished, seen and unseen, that could scar my heart. Yet in 15 lines and 94 words, Hopkins builds a melancholic, elegiac sentiment that still affects me now, hundreds of reads later." - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet
