  1. Go ahead, touch yourself: eight things to know for masturbation month – “Adults who are 25-29 years old are the most likely to have masturbated at least once in their lives – but those numbers do not necessarily tell the whole story. For years, people have asked me about what constitutes “normal” when it comes to masturbation: how much is too much? How long should it last? Who masturbates more – men or women? There is a wealth of data available on how and why we touch ourselves. Here are eight things to know.” (www.theguardian.com)
  2. 2016 Theme Camps / Burning Man -This is the list of Theme Camps who submitted a Placed Camp Questionnaire requesting placement in Black Rock City’s reserved sections for this year and want to be listed publicly. Hello Home! Can’t wait! (burningman.org)
  3. MAGNUM PHOTOGRAPHY AWARDS 2016 – Submit your photos! “LensCulture and legendary photography agency Magnum Photos are joining forces to produce one of the best opportunities for photographers all over the world to be recognized and rewarded for their talent.” (www.lensculture.com)
  4. Fly Ranch Burning Man Project – Fly Ranch has the potential to expand Burning Man Project’s activities and existing programs, and amplify Burning Man’s cultural impact into the wider world beyond Black Rock City. (burningman.org)
  5. John Oliver buys and forgives $15m worth of medical debt – “The Rolling Jubilee doesn’t actually solve the problem. The Rolling Jubilee is a tactic and a valuable one because it exposes how debt operates,” Thomas Gokey, one of the organizers, said. “It punches a hole through the morality of debt, through this idea that you owe X amount of dollars that the 1% says you owe. In reality, that debt is worth significantly less. The 1% is selling it to each other at bargain-based prices. You don’t actually owe that.” (www.theguardian.com)
  6. The 4 Qualities Of A Conscious Relationship – “We are approaching a period of time when relationships are ready to go through a major redesign. The current paradigm isn’t working. People are unsatisfied in love; people don’t know how to make relationships work.” (www.mindbodygreen.com)
  7. Industrial farming is one of the worst crimes in history – Humanity will remember this with shame. “The fate of industrially farmed animals is one of the most pressing ethical questions of our time. Tens of billions of sentient beings, each with complex sensations and emotions, live and die on a production line”.  (www.theguardian.com)
  8. NYC Just Released a List of Officially Recognized Genders – The city is catching up and it’s great news! “As part of its non-discrimination policy, the city’s Commission on Human Rights released a list of different genders that businesses must accommodate or risk a six-figure fine, The Daily Caller is reporting.” (www.thefederalistpapers.org)
  9. A Forecast of When We’ll Run Out of Each Metal – “This chart is a reminder that something has to give. Either prices are going to have to go up, or new amazing discoveries have to be made to keep prices down.” (www.visualcapitalist.com)
  10. Holosound NYC – Holosound March Vibes – Perfect tunes in my weekly music recommendations! Enjoy and share free music! (soundcloud.com)
  11. NowThis – This group turns unused lawns into mini farms
