From Round to Square (and back)

For The Emperor's Teacher, scroll down (↓) to "Topics." It's the management book that will rock the world (and break the vase, as you will see). Click or paste the following link for a recent profile of the project:

A new post appears every day at 12:05* (CDT). There's more, though. Take a look at the right-hand side of the page for over four years of material (2,000 posts and growing) from Seinfeld and country music to every single day of the Chinese lunar calendar...translated. Look here ↓ and explore a little. It will take you all the way down the page...from round to square (and back again).
*Occasionally I will leave a long post up for thirty-six hours, and post a shorter entry at noon the next day.

Meine Flucht nach Europa
My Escape to Europe

This week's Die Zeit cover has the exclusive story of a reporter who made a dangerous trip across the Mediterranean with Syrian refugees. This is a little bit of a twist on Die Zeit covers, and a welcome one.

We have seen a large number of historical retrospective stories (Shakespeare, World War I, selfless givers) and current-culture pieces (business life, animal rights, and gendered life). 

This is the first cover in some time to have absolutely current reporting of something other than a major news event. 

Good stuff, as always. The paper actually came out on Wednesday, since Thursday is a holiday here in Germany. And how did I spend my holiday? 

Well, reading the story, of course.
