A handful of splendid finds from around the worldwide web:

Working moms have more successful daughters and more caring sons. "Employed mothers create an environment in which their children’s attitudes on what is appropriate for girls to do and what is appropriate for boys to do is affected." [Quartz]

Blood donors in Sweden get a text message whenever their blood saves someone's life. "The messages give donors more positive feedback about how they’ve helped their fellow citizens – which encourages them to donate again." [The Independent]

The benefits of letting your mind wander. "Mind-wandering fosters creative problem solving . . . It’s ideal not just for thinking about possible outcomes but also for thinking about how different outcomes would feel." [The Wall Street Journal]

Meet Portugal's "Graffiti Grandmas," a group of retirees who spend their days as street artists. "The most important part of LATA 65 is the process. The process of understanding what they see in the city and demystifying these artistic expressions." [The Creators Project]
