My favorite finds from around the web:
• 100 years of fashion in two minutes.
• Brevity: 3 tips for speaking less and saying more. “If I say 150 words a minute, and you can hear 750 words a minute, the less I say, the more you hear. The more you say, the less they’re going to hear.”
• Looking for a good girl-power novel? It’s time to go back to the classics. “Next time you’re looking for a wholly good story with a strong-heroine punch, consider any of these classic novels, which still speak to strong women today.”
• On vulnerability, perfection, and helping the person behind you. “Wouldn’t it be an awful world if we all waited until we’d reached expert status before we helped other people?”
