This week, we learned …
… humpback whales are ocean superheroes. Read this!! (Yes, the video is grainy and in German, but look at that whale protecting the seal from the nearby nosy orca!)
… Mozart’s pet bird may have influenced his most brilliant compositions—including one of our favorite duets here.
… a young prodigy—with a little help from Disney—has inspired a chess boom in Uganda. (Watch the movie trailer here.)
… where to see the ruined remains of Olympic infrastructure, and how the 2016 infrastructure will transform after the games.
