Monday Mashup: Love For The Ages
Every week, we scour the web to bring you interesting bits and pieces from around the world. Enjoy!
Love For The Ages
This exhibit might be showing in London, but get a sneak peek into the great loves of the elderly with this article and video. In “Love Lived,” people aged 75 to 95 share their love stories. Part heartbreaking, part life-affirming (we definitely teared up a couple of times) your Valentine’s Day will last a little longer when you read your stories and see how a life well-lived shapes our perspectives on love.

Gravitational waves have finally been detected, and this article does a great job of explaining first, what they are (because we’re not all astrophysicists), and second, why they’re a big deal.
France Ahead of The Curve
France is killing it in the sustainability game. The country has banned supermarkets from throwing out unsold food, and has announced plans to pave one thousand kilometers of road with solar panels. Pretty cool, France. We should all learn from you.
