Splendid Sundays Volume 174Sunday, March 22, 2015
A handful of splendid finds from around the worldwide web:
How the latest social network, Meerkat, will change the 2016 election for every campaign, reporter and voter. "If 2004 was about Meetup, 2008 was about Facebook, and 2012 was about Twitter, 2016 is going to be about Meerkat." [Backchannel] (PS: You can follow me on Meerkat here.)
One farmer grows all the peppers that go into Sriracha sauce. "Underwood is always looking to maximize flavor and heat in his jalapeños . . . He conducts between 50 and 100 pepper-growing trials a year to discover varietals with more punch." [LA Times]
Journalist hopes to use sports to empower Pakistani girls. "Our girls deserve to enjoy a proper childhood, not just to be babysitters when they are babies themselves." [ESPN]
Daydreaming can actually help you get stuff done. "Mind-wandering actually enhances brain performance and prepares the mind for complex tasks." [The Times of Israel]
Noteworthy from The Splendid Collective:
The 2015 UK Wedding Study from Splendid Insights is now available for download, along with the Premium and Luxury wedding budget reports.
