Agence France-Presse compiled a package from photographers around the world documenting children going to school. This is a selection of their images giving insight into the lives of students in various countries.

This is such a wonderful series of pictures capturing the essence of education around the world – in some you can see the desire to learn, even in some very tough conditions while in others you can tell how education has now become one of the most essential needs. Very touching!

I am an animal lover and the owner of two very beautiful animals – a Labrador retriever  and a Persian cat. Of course, I know that I’m not the only one who thinks that my beautiful animals are the most extraordinary and wonderful pets anyone could ever have. Most pet owners fall hopelessly in love with their furry, feathery or finny friends, and come to believe that their pet is really something special. And they’re right.

All animals are special and they teach us about caring and love. And whether your pet is a dog, a cat, a parrot or a turtle, when you look into their eyes you know you’ve got a friend.

I had also posted a series of some very funny animal captioning a while ago that stills cracks me up when I look through them. You could send me some of your’s to add to the list. Would be fun.

Henry Ford

“[I]in 1913, the first assembly line was implemented at Ford Motor Company. The process grew like a vine and eventually spread to all phases of the manufacture of Ford cars, and then through the entire world of heavy industry. There can be no doubt that a powerful revolution occurred at Highland Park—but it was not the assembly line itself that provided the power. Rather, it was the creation of an atmosphere in which improvement was the real product: a better, cheaper, Model T followed naturally. Every man on the payroll was invited to contribute ideas, and the good ones were implemented without delay.”

I’ve just begun to read this book called The Interpretation of Murder by Jed Rubenfeld. The title of the book and the fact that it has Sigmund Freud as a character in the story definitely made me pick it. Look forward to reading it.

Ekaterina Panikanova is a Russian mix media artist and her amazing book art is absolutely mesmerising. You can view more of her work on her website.

Is this a good way of recycling old books or is there ever a good reason to destroy them, I wonder.


Currently reading Inside Coca-Cola. An interesting memoir By Neville Isdell, CEO of Coca-Cola, but for those expecting a marketing or brand management book, you’ll be disappointed. Nevertheless, it’s always good to read what goes on behind big brands.
