In the first Animal Feed of the year, we learn how well-being rises with income, brush up on our hippo knowledge, got on a seesaw, and, through the magical power of film, teleport ourselves to other worlds where you, like Barbara Shelley, can sometimes be the victim, sometimes the monster.
2. A collection of bright pink seesaws that allows people to interact over the US-Mexico border wins the Design of the Year award. The Guardian
3. Science has finally proved that money does buy happiness—even if it doesn’t guarantee it. PNAS
4. It all started with Pablo Escobar and four smuggled hippos. Now, as many as 100 hippopotami run wild in Colombia. Washington Post
5. If 2021 has already got you nostalgic for dystopia, drift off with a list of the best 50 cult movies that, from humble or overlooked beginnings, rose to prominence through the support of their fans. People have the power. The Ringer
We just wanted to wish you a happy new year but, as reality continues to bewilder us, all we can say is that we’re incredibly grateful for you—our clients, collaborators, and friends, for your cooperation and continued support. Wishing you health and a year filled with possibilities.
