This looks like an interesting project:

What’s the Lucky Iron Fish Project?

The Lucky Iron Fish™ is a social entrepreneurship organization implementing a simple health innovation to alleviate iron deficiency and iron deficiency anemia in Cambodia, especially in women and children.

I look forward to reading about the scientific side of it. It seems a brilliant idea to address anemia with a small iron fish in the dinner pot.  Intelligent Iron Tiktaaliks and Happy Holy Mackerels would make great additions too. 🙂



Tapeworms of the Mind

TapeWorms of the Mind
TapeWorms of the Mind

I finished reading Watering Heaven by Peter Tieryas Liu on the plane. Reading these stories was like crushing pomegranate kernels against the back of your teeth; like listening to pop music whilst popping popcorn; like dancing in a dark room with flashing strobe lights; like eating fresh sushi in a crowded mall. I think it is called “magical realism“? 

I enjoyed it. Especially the hungry tapeworms of the mind… Reviews and ratings  probably tell you more about the reviewer/critic than the writer or artist. Unless you do it for a living, as a job.
