Here's a grab bag of stuff I've been finding interesting today:
Nicholas Whyte put together a very nice guide to election night: http://www.slideshare.net/apcoworldwide/apcos-guide-to-election-night-2016
Regarding "making presentations more visual", my sister-in-law tipped me off to this excellent resource of diagrams for presentations: http://www.duarte.com/diagrammer
. Very useful for those moments when you need a blob with four other blobs radiating out from it, and you don't want it to look like it was created by a five-year-old.
Don't watch this if you are afraid of snakes, but this snippet from Planet Earth II
is the most tense action-drama I've seen all year: http://digg.com/video/baby-iguana-snakes-planet-earth-bbc
. That un-named little baby iguana is my hero.
Fascinating interview with the lawyer who handles U.S. visas for many heavy metal bands on tour: http://www.theblacksiren.com/so-you-want-to-play-in-the-states-read-this/
. Hardly a month goes by without an overseas heavy metal band canceling or delaying a U.S. tour because a visa issues. After reading this interview, I'm more amazed that anyone ever manages to tour the U.S. at all.
Music that is scientifically proven to reduce stress: http://www.inc.com/melanie-curtin/neuroscience-says-listening-to-this-one-song-reduces-anxiety-by-up-to-65-percent.html
