Lupita doesn't look like she's having a good time during the Fiesta Pooch parade and contest on Saturday in San Antonio, but maybe she always looks like this.

Good stuff for Sunday brunch, April 27, 2014

I spend a couple of hours on Saturdays putting together ingredients for Sunday Brunch, when you have a little more time for the good stuff.


  • Science made easy. The video posted on YouTube by TED-Ed offers a lesson by Alex Gendler and animation by Augenblick Studios on the immense power of tsunamis and how they come to be.

Stories worth your time

  • We've all heard the phrase "Don't complain, don't explain." Well, if you say or do something really bad, don't give an interview to complain and/or explain unless can do better than these guys. Jaime Fuller at the Washington Post compiled a bunch of clips – from Cliven Bundy, Rob Ford and Anthony Weiner, to name just a few – who gave a "painful television interview as penance after committing a particularly egregious foul." Fuller reports on national politics for "The Fix" and Post Politics.
  • Steve Warden's new Journal Gazette column, Morning Observations, is really fun. His interview with blind bus rider Jerry McGill is just plain good writing.
  • I caught the list of Inc.'s 100 great questions every entrepreneur should ask in Blue Sky, the Chicago Tribune's section related to innovation and entrepreneurship. If you think the place where you work could use some innovation, it offers interesting ways of looking at some old problems.
  • If you are worried about how few protections we have as big business and others mine for our information, this story probably won't make you feel better.
Duh tip of the day
