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.

Ich bin wie du...Brauchen Tiere Menschenrechte?
I am like you...Do animals need human rights?

Well, there's never a dull moment with Die Zeit's cover story. This one keeps up the pace and channels a number of volatile themes that will play differently in Germany than they would in the United States.

Despite the fact that European readers, generally, are less likely to, say, question the relationship between the figure in the picture and, well, the current Governor of Texas, it is still a lively issue. And, to make sure that I don't cast aspersions only on one ideological side, it's fair to say that PETA is bigger in the United States than it is here in Europe. 

The questions are significant, and ongoing. Should we do research on "animals?" Can "humans" benefit from testing on "animals?" What kind? Should animals have rights?

Nothing is "easy" at Die Zeit, and that is as it should be.
