1. Business & News: Read Beautiful News Daily
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Many of us strive to stay well-informed of local and international events, but sometimes the news can be stressful or discouraging. To help counterbalance this, the data visualization website Information is Beautiful recently embarked on a new project, Beautiful News Daily. As its name implies, this project offers its visitors "a collection of good news, positive trends, uplifting statistics and facts -- all beautifully visualized," in colorful charts and graphics. New graphics are posted each day over the course of the project's one-year lifespan, which aims "to move our attention beyond dramatic news headlines to the slow developments and quiet trends that go unseen, uncelebrated." Readers can browse all of the Beautiful News items on the project's main page, and they can also filter them by category. Each item's page includes a brief summary, and below readers will find links to view the data in spreadsheet form and to see the source that inspired the chart, as well as a link to a relevant organization for those who would like to get involved. All of the images created for Beautiful New Daily are covered by a Creative Commons license and can be used and shared freely. Information is Beautiful was founded by David McCandless, a London-based writer, designer, and artist. Visit this site.

A portrait of the Queen with the next three heirs to the throne has been released to mark the start of the new decade. It shows the Prince of Wales, the Duke of Cambridge and Prince George standing with the Queen at Buckingham Palace. The new photograph was taken in the week before Christmas, but has not been published until now. It is the second official portrait of the four generations of royals together. The Queen, 93, standing at the front of her family, wears a white dress with a blue brooch and clutches a handbag. Visit this site (BBC)

4. Education: Medical Heritage Library
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The Medical Heritage Library is a "digital curation collaborative" between numerous leading medical libraries, including the August C. Long Health Science Library at Columbia University, the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, and the Wellcome Library, to name just a few. These libraries are working together on this remarkable collection that provides insight into the history of medicine in the United States and Great Britain. Through the website's Content tab, visitors can browse hundreds of medical journals, pamphlets, and books dating back to the sixteenth century. Researchers can also conduct a keyword Search in order to find relevant material within this extensive (and still growing) collection. Educators or the more casually interested visitors may want to simply start with the homepage, which highlights a variety of material from this collection as well as current exhibits and projects at participating libraries. For example, in the most recent blog post (as of this writing), readers can hear from Hanna Clutterbuck-Cook as she discusses seventeenth-century blood transfusions. Visit this site.

A painting by LS Lowry that was lost to the art world for more than seven decades has been unearthed. The 1943 work, entitled The Mill, Pendlebury, depicts workers enjoying a day off and children playing cricket. "There are no records of it, we simply didn't know it existed," said British art expert Nick Orchard of Christie's auction house in London. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

Photo of the Month

Dawn in Kenya, Africa

On this November morning an old crescent Moon and morning star rise just before the Sun in a wide panoramic skyscape from Kenya's Amboseli National Park. Still below the limbs of an acacia tree and the eastern horizon, the Sun's position is easy to find though. It's marked at the left by the subtle convergence of light and shadow in the dawn sky, click here.

Editor’s Note:  Being a new year and including the season of giving, and a time especially important to our children and grandchildren, we thought this site would bring joy and inspiration to our many readers throughout the world, to whom we wish Season’s Greetings. Our recommended book of the month is A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Lewis Stevenson, a beautiful gift for any child or adult. Here is a delightful look at childhood, written by master poet and storyteller Robert Louis Stevenson. In this collection of sixty-six poems, Stevenson recalls the joys of his childhood, from sailing boats down a river, to waiting for the lamplighter, to sailing off to foreign lands in his imagination.


Editor’s Note: Don’t forget that we also have an online book store, Delamere International Bookshop. We represent a number of major leading book suppliers that concentrate on non-fiction books related to business, employment, marketing, investing & finance, real estate, and conducting international trade. Click here.
