1. Liz Climo is an illustrator on the Simpsons, and her cartoons are simply darling:

2. Bees Are Awesome. This swarm apparently followed a car for two days to try and rescue its queen trapped inside.

3. The Secret Student Group that Stood Up to the Nazis:

On this day, 74 years ago, three young adults placed their heads beneath a guillotine and prepared to die. Their crime? Speaking out against the Nazis with graffiti and hand-printed pamphlets. Their names? Sophie Scholl, Hans Scholl and Christoph Probst. It was a violent end to a peaceful student movement known as the White Rose—one that used the power of language to resist the horrors of the Nazi regime.

5. Smithsonian Magazine is having a photo contest. Peruse and vote for your favorites here. I love this firewalking one from Binh Duong:

6. Every New York Times Cover Since 1852. This quick video shows how and when images began to appear in the paper of record. It’s arresting and oddly poignant, to think about all of the news that came and went. We survived all of the things reported there. Perhaps we will survive today’s challenges too.

7. Eight Changes Made to Richard Scarry Books: to keep up with the times. Love it.

A friend posted this to Facebook, a memory from a year ago. I love this art piece by Jorge Méndez Blake.
