I've had so many afternoon/evening meetings at the boathouse recently that when I started to bike towards home yesterday evening I accidentally diverted my commute to head down the hill towards the boathouse.

...I'm headed there again this evening for an evening rowing practice anyways, heh.

I am hoping for fewer meetings in the near future. We shall see.

Random links and somesuch

Putting them here so I can close a few browser tabs:

I hope the anti-lawn movement continues to catch on. You probably already know that I'm not a huge fan of grass lawns: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/26/realestate/lawn-mowing-gardening.html

I appreciated this article about the way that the media frequently talks about people driving cars hitting people riding bicycles, and why it's so often problematic: https://www.outsideonline.com/2392955/lets-talk-about-drivers-hitting-cyclists

From an academic blog, a post emphasizing the need to shift from competitive environments to supportive ones. I keep thinking back to a recent NYT article that highlighted recent evidence suggesting that more aggressive/demanding management styles aren't nearly as effective as supportive ones. https://dynamicecology.wordpress.com/2019/05/08/seagulling-ego-itching-powder-supporting-one-another-and-happiness/

This book on domestic violence seems important to highlight. I'm appreciative of books that tackle difficult subjects and provide new ideas: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/07/books/review-no-visible-bruises-domestic-violence-rachel-louise-snyder.html
