Weekly Roundup: ORbitz (for the kidz)

The Oxonian Review presents the Weekly Round-up, featuring websites and articles the editorial staff have found interesting, illuminating, or otherwise noteworthy.

1. “Why we should memorise”, The New Yorker: “When I was a Boy Scout, in the sixties, I spent some hours trying to learn Morse code and even, on a couple of overly sunny, headachey afternoons, trying to communicate by flag semaphore. Some things were meant to disappear.”

2. ”I was a Mysogonist”, The Skinny: Comedian Michael J Dolan takes himself to task.

3. “Harvard for open research”, The Guardian: Harvard University says it cannot afford publisher’s prices: faculty members are urged “to make their research freely available through open access journals and to resign from publications that keep articles behind paywalls.”

4. “Darkness or Light?“, The New Yorker: Commemorating Robert Frost 50 years after his death.

5. “Bad Kids Jokes”, Tumblr: How children (do not) understand humour.
