Fair Warning - Censorship, wildlife and diseased coral
By Sophie Warnes • Issue #110 • View online
Hi hi, this is the non-coronavirus edition! This weekend has been four days long and I was dreading it, but it’s not been so bad? I’ve cleaned and sorted out my balcony a bit, went for TWO runs, and I’ve been doing odd jobs around the apartment.
I am finding lockdown a bit difficult, because I’m craving socialisation but being social is extremely stressful right now and I’m overwhelmed and overstimulated by group video calls. So I am pretending I have no friends and nobody loves me, and I have decided to buy a coffee table, a rug, and a dining table. And two plants. MOAR THINGS TO FILL THE EMPTY.
As usual, some fun non-data things to read:

Over the pond
Links from the Washington Post aren’t working when I embed them, so I’ll link them directly… I found this piece on wildlife corridors in the US an absolutely fascinating read on migratory routes and corridors. The graphics in this are brilliant, as always, and I love that it tracks one female pronghorn deer as she moves around.
Elsewhere
India's citizenship protests
See centuries of architecture in Jerusalem
Odds and ends
Just how does Kidz Bop censor songs?
