The Harsh Realities of Apartheid-Era South Africa Through a Black South African's Lens

quote [ In the mid-1960s, photojournalist Ernest Cole undertook a dangerous mission—to produce a volume of photographs that would reveal to the world the excruciating realities of life under apartheid. The result was the groundbreaking book House of Bondage, published in 1967. ]

Posthumous Execution

quote [ Oliver Cromwell, the 1st ruler of the Commonwealth of England, Scotland, and Ireland, was born in Huntington, Cambridge on April 25, 1599. He died on September 3, 1658, from sepsis following a urinary infection. And he was executed on January 30, 1661—more than two years after his natural death. This makes Oliver Cromwell one of very few people who has been executed posthumously. ]

It was my execution day

How Europe Learnt to Swim

quote [ For 1,500 years, Western Europe ‘forgot’ how to swim, retreating from the water in terror. The return to swimming is a lesser-known triumph of the Enlightenment. ]

The Fantastic and Troubled History of the Video Phone

quote [ Being able to see the person on a call is something we take for granted. Skype, FaceTime, video conference software and similar applications are just a routine part of modern life.  However, once upon a time, the idea of a “video phone” was pure science fiction.  The notion that we could actually SEE the person on the other end of the call was something from The Jetsons, not reality. ]

How One Frenchman Became the World's Most Beloved Lesbian Poet

quote [ We thought we’d heard it all when it came to imposters. Clearly, we hadn’t met Pierre Louÿs. The French writer had Europe’s literary scene eating out of the palm of his hand, and was decorated as a Chevalier and Officier de la Légion d’honneur in his lifetime, two of his country’s highest honours, that would never have been awarded to him if it weren’t for one larger-than-life lie– Pierre’s ancient Greek, lesbian-erotica poet who never existed. ]

Just be a poet about it

Canary Girls: The World War One Women Who Turned Yellow

quote [ The role women played in the two World Wars is well known and well appreciated. As men went off to fight the war, positions previously held by men in factories and other services were quickly filled by women. Women worked the assembly line, drove trucks, served as air raid wardens and as nurses, worked in communications, intelligence, and performed hundreds of other duties critical for the war effort. One vital role women played was ensuring that the soldiers in the front line had adequate ammunition. ]

Pens for Pennies

quote [ How cheap ballpoint pens, which are easy to lose and easy to make, changed the world due to their sheer disposability. They’re really freaking cheap. ]
