I have a 1,000 page manual of basic nursing procedures to memorize. How do I cram it all in and suppress my critical-thinking brain and hone my test-taking brain? [more inside]
Asking for a friend: three of us, all middle-aged white women, have just purchased an established cafe in a downtown neighbourhood. We've noticed that, while the population of our area is quite diverse, our clientele appears to be predominantly straight, white, and middle-class.

I have an airbnb apartment in Los Angeles. I'm working on small touches to welcome folks and am thinking about making custom postcard with a nice photo (which I took) of a classic LA vista with a link to my listing on the back in the caption.

We're trying to pinpoint the origin of this modernist geometric encaustic tile design pattern. It's still produced in Spain (where they're called baldosas - or losas - hidráulicos, one factory calling it "Lebrija". In those colours in particular, it's reminiscent of futurist graphics in the style of Balla or Depero. But it might just as likely just be a regional Spanish-moresque standard? [more inside]
