Victorian Taxidermy Animal Hats

quote [ This particular craze is perhaps an extension of the overall fascination with taxidermy, and the ways in which the Victorians pushed creative boundaries with the controversial practice. Complete tableaux featuring dead bunnies studying in a library, for example, were all the rage, and giving the animals human characteristics after death — reading, having tea, playing croquet — was especially popular. ]

At Greek refugee camp, there are few defenses against COVID-19 threat

quote [ Human rights activists and medical nonprofits are calling on the Greek government to evacuate overcrowded refugee camps on islands in the Aegean Sea, where an outbreak of COVID-19 would likely cause humanitarian catastrophe. Concerns are especially grave regarding Moria camp on the island of Lesbos. Special correspondent Malcolm Brabant reports. ]

This was inhuman for the last decade – especially leaving it to Greece to do the dirty work – but the current political hesitation to get these people out is unbearable.
They're already closing off access for helpers while not being able to even sustain water supply.

I had to get my father's affairs in order. You do too.

quote [ Ideally, they have a living will, which helps ease probate backlog and costs and also is a process that makes you think through a lot of end-of-life issues. But most people don’t. Do they at least have an ordinary will and an advance medical directive? If so, where are they? ]

Some opinions on a tricky topic.
