Did you have a wonderful Halloween? Any trick-or-treaters show up at your doorstep? Halloween was a cold and rainy one here, which takes a bit of fun out of trick-or-treating. The next morning was bright and crisp. We took a hop-on, hop-off tour of Dublin. In the three years that we have lived here, we have never taken the tour. It was fun to be a local tourist for the day. While I prep for the week ahead, a few links for your enjoyment:
The cost of high-speed internet around the world. Nice to see that Dublin wasn’t the most expensive, for a change!
I loved this interview of Debora Spar, President of Barnard College.
This pictorial of the Indo-European Linguistic Tree is beautiful and incredibly interesting. For those that are curious, the Irish language is a part of “Gaelic” on this map.
Finally, food for thought: do unequal societies encourage “pushy parenting“?
Have a great weekend!
