Unused backyard spot. Level of difficulty: shade & chickens

There's an eyesore of a barren area, about 2m,5 x 2,5m (8ft x 8ft), in my backyard. I want to do something about it. Challenge #1: part of the area is permanently shaded. Challenge #2: I have two free-range chickens eager to eat everything tender and green. [more inside]

Looking for kayaking route for multi-day Lake Powell trip.

We've been scouring the internet for cool routes and it's just not cutting it. There are a lot of routes that people suggest that have heavy traffic and boating. We're looking for something a little more remote or secluded. [more inside]

South Korean perspective on Che Guevara?

I'm looking for any insight into how Che Guevara is perceived in South Korea. Clearly there's not one single "South Korean perspective" on anything, but any kind of bird's-eye views, anecdotal reports, or online things to read would be helpful here.

Who to follow on Diaspora*

I'm finally checking out of Facebook, today's various new items (especially that they're sponsoring the Republican convention) put the nail in the coffin. This means I'm looking at Diaspora* again. I know there's a large German network on the site, but I don't speak the language. Any Mefites on diaspora? Anyone else you would recommend following? I read English and Dutch. :)

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]

Growth of User Efficiency Over Time

We recently measured user efficiency with a few custom web-based search tools. So that we can level set performance against our existing tools, with which the users have significantly more experience, we'd like to understand how search efficiency may be expected to improve over time as users become accustomed to a particular tool. Are there any studies or stats related to that I may be able to reference?
