It’s Friday! Here are some things I read or enjoyed this week…
Did you see this? Human embryos were just edited for first time in the US using CRISPR — the scientists were able to correct disease-causing genes. (This is huge.)
Leandra Medine shared a few years ago (I just read it) why she doesn’t wear makeup…
“I am comfortable with how I look. I don’t hate what I see when I look in the mirror. Even if legions of others don’t agree. I have accepted the reflection that reliably bounces back at me for its perks and its flaws.”
American and British English obviously sound different. But did you know that pre-American-revolution British-English sounded more like what we now hear as modern American-English than like modern British-English?! Here’s a post that explains why.
Also, Sarah Wilson shared her favorite longreads here (not a new post, but relevant in case you need some reading this weekend).
Do you listen to BANKS? I have this song on repeat.
Also, this link won’t be active until tomorrow but here‘s the first #ISAASEinspired profile from ISAASE’s Diversity and Representation Initiative. This profile is an interview with the founder of Crossover Basketball & Scholars Academy in India. (Here’s more about the project here).
It’s Friday! We made it. What are you reading this weekend?
P.S. – What music makes you cry?
