The History of the English Language, Animated | Brain Pickings
"The history of language, that peculiar human faculty that Darwin believed was half art and half instinct, is intricately intertwined with the evolution of our species, our capacity for invention, our understanding of human biology, and even the progress of our gender politics. From the fine folks at Open University — who previously gave us these delightful 60-second animated syntheses of the world’s major religions, philosophy’s greatest thought experiments, and the major creative movements in design — comes this infinitely entertaining and illuminating animated history of the English language in 10 minutes:" - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet

Watch a cocoa farmer try chocolate for the first time - Boing Boing - http://boingboing.net/2014...
"N'Da Alphonse grows cocoa in Ivory Coast. He harvests the pods, removes the pulp-covered beans, and dries them before selling them to brokers. He'd never seen or tasted the food made from his beans, until a Dutch TV show brought him a sample, as part of a story on class divisions and the global food trade" - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet

I had no idea these camps existed. - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet
Yeah, it's pretty bad. There are a couple of different eye-witness stories in "Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea" (https://www.goodreads.com/book...) which contains stories from interviews with several different citizens who have left. Even they acknowledge that it is difficult to account for anything in the country they didn't see personally. - Jennifer Dittrich

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
