Looking for an upright Dutch bicycle frame compatible with gravel gears

My old bike has given up the ghost, and I'd like to build a new one. I'm looking for A Dutch-style city bike or beach cruiser frame compatible with a modern single cog gravel bike gear set, disk brakes and fenders. The brakes are negotiable, the fenders aren't. I don't mind buying a complete bike to rebuild, but I'd prefer a raw frame. Mostly bike path and suburban riding, with the occasional foray into the city or unpaved road touring with sudden and steep inclines and a heavier rider who likes to mash the pedals. Upright cycling is super comfy for me, I just need something more capable than a three speed hub.

Portable microscope that works with your phone for backpacking?

Last summer my kids had an amazing time looking at bugs swimming in ponds while we were backpacking. This summer, I'm hoping to up our game a bit and get some kind of portable, fairly robust microscope or (android) phone accessory that will give us a bit of a magnification. My google-fu is weak and while there are many products, I'm failing to find reasonable third party reviews on anything of this kind. Help? [more inside]

Vegan hockey gear

I’m getting back into serious hockey after a long bout with disability. Does all gear still have leather in it? Are there pads and skates that are vinyl or something? Talking full ice hockey gear here. And also roller hockey pants.

Essay about "The Missing," indie games, and jank

A few years ago, I read an essay that made a thoughtful and persuasive case for an ethical obligation to accept mechanical flaws in indie games, due to popular acceptance of narrative flaws in big-budget games. There was a focus on the mechanically janky indie game "The Missing: JJ Macfield." I can't find it now, and I want to share it before trying to get non-indie-gamers to play Kitty Horrorshow's brilliant (but kind of janky) "Anatomy."
