Planets of Our Solar System

Our solar system officially has eight planets and one star: the Sun. The discovery of an object larger than Pluto in 2005 rekindled the debate over whether such objects, belonging to the Kuiper Belt – a collection of icy bodies located beyond Neptune – should be called planets. Pluto and other large members of the Kuiper Belt are now considered “dwarf planets.”

Happy birthday, Bradbury! Dear old Ray on failure, why we hate work, and the importance of love in creative endeavors.
I’m more direct than I used to be. Life’s too short to suffer half-truths and inefficiencies. Be honest. Be open. It’s magic.

Sanity tips from Liz Danzico, creative director at NPR (among an impressive roster of other things) – a fine addition to our ongoing archive of sage advice.

And lest we forget, the key to staying sane is also about being honest with ourselves

"You’re always with yourself, so you might as well enjoy the company."
- Diane Von Furstenberg
About four thousand years ago, somewhere in the Middle East — we don’t know where or when, exactly — a scribe drew a picture of an ox head. The picture was rather simple: just a face with two horns on top. It was used as part of an abjad, a set of characters that represent the consonants in a language. Over thousands of years, that ox-head icon gradually changed as it found its way into many different abjads and alphabets. It became more angular, then rotated to its side. Finally it turned upside down entirely, so that it was resting on its horns. Today it no longer represents an ox head or even a consonant. We know it as the capital letter A. The moral of this story is that symbols evolve.

Don’t remember where I found these, but whoever made them is a hero.
