Bottom of the News

For nearly a year, I’ve been sharing the details of the amazing Busload of Books Tour, where a great family of six is spending the 2022-2023 school year traveling the country in a school bus/tiny home—visiting Title I schools in all 50 states (plus DC), doing presentations on creativity and collaboration, and giving away 25,000 hardcover books to students and teachers from underserved communities. It’s one of the great American stories and it’s starting to get the national attention it deserves. Today, Mathew, Robbi, and their kids (especially Alden!) were featured on the Drew Barrymore Show. Here’s a link to their slice of the show on Dropbox. If that doesn’t work for some reason, here it is on Drew’s site.

+ Lots of reaction (and lists of favorite flavors) in response to yesterday’s lead about health and ice cream. The Straight Scoop.

+ Beatriz Flamini: Athlete emerges after 500 days living in cave. (Think of all the crazy news she avoided!)

+ Rangers’ Jacob Trouba Presents Sandy Hook Survivor with Law School Scholarship.

+ This futuristic recycling plant is mining your old phone for gold.

+ A Parkinson’s ‘game changer,’ backed by Michael J. Fox, could lead to new diagnostics and, someday, treatments. “I’ve always been a tough son of a bitch. You can beat me up, but I’ll get one punch in and it will hurt … And I think I got one punch in on Parkinson’s.”

+ A lost dog treks 150 miles across Alaskan sea ice before he’s reunited with his family. (They must have the best treats!)

+ Rays Tie MLB Record With 13–0 Start to Season.

+ The man who walked around the world: Tom Turcich on his seven-year search for the meaning of life. (I’m guessing it has something to do with wearing sensible shoes.)
