iOS apps, websites and cartoons for a beginning Mandarin learner?

My 7-year-old took some Mandarin at school last year. I'd like to find something for him to continue to be exposed to it throughout the summer. Are there kid-friendly iOS apps (best), cartoons available on streaming (good), or websites (works for him some days) that I should point him towards?

Saatva Mattress Long Term Reviews?

Saatva gets amazing reviews. The only critiques I see are that over the long term, they start to dip/sag. Has anyone else had a Saatva mattress longer than a couple years and can let us know how it has held up? Is it more likely to sag than other beds? Is it just because of the pillow top? Any other complaints? Thanks!

Engine in Excel

Now this may be a ridiculous long shot but does anybody remember seeing an Excel workbook circa 1993 which featured an elaborate color drawing of an internal combustion engine? It had shading, many colors, and took a couple of minutes to "render" on the Mac we had at the time. I think it came from a magazine cover disk but I could be wrong. If anyone has this I'd love a copy.

A good JIRA Mobile Client?

Are any of the Android mobile clients for JIRA worth a darn? I’d like to both have a bit of a smoother browsing experience on the phone than is provided by the mobile site, and to be able to submit issues without a lot of pain. (If there were a version of OctoDroid for JIRA I’d be delighted.) Gobs & gobs of money might be an object, but small sums are not. Thanks!

Looking for a video relating to St Francis' Canticle of the Sun

What I remember: It was entirely instrumental with the words to the Canticle of the Sun on the video. There were some incredible portraits of St Francis done in ... I think oils? But there were various ones. It was a really powerfully moving piece of music, drums and flutes, I think. I've been through like 5 pages of YouTube search results and they all give me various orchestral or choral versions of the Canticle, which is not what I'm looking for. Thanks, Hive Mind!

Weather comparison and historical accuracy

Is there a place I can compare the historical accuracy of different weather forecast websites? I'm interested in which source is best for my location, and which source is best overall. We had a previous question on this, and I've seen this website - but I am looking for multi-source comparison. Thanks!

Did I hallucinate this award/charity show phenomenon or did it exist?

I somehow believe there was a THING going on in the 1990s/2000s that involved all kinds of pop stars and presenters and performances that were deliberately intended to be edited into one continuous stream that would fit together (going forward and backward, too). [more inside]
