Money mammoths, black kites, Robert Irwin
Bills and birds
Welcome back to Down-To-Earth by Jenna, fun chats about your offline world •
• It is embarrassing the amount of times I’ve quoted this book by *financial psychologists* in conversations over the past couple days. It’s completely mind blowing and enlightening. I may or may not make an ancient roman shrine after this (read the book). It covers the psychology behind personal financial decision making, and also easily helps contextualize many of the drivers of our climate crisis.
• “Mohammad Saud and Nadeem Shehzad rescue birds of prey - mostly injured by paper kite strings coated with crushed glass - and carry them in cardboard boxes to a claustrophobic basement garage at home. Here, they begin nursing them to health: cleaning and bandaging wounds, fixing slashed wings and broken bones.” - Soutik Biswas, BBC.
After reading this touching review I tried to find a link to watch this documentary everywhere. If you happen to find it please let me know. <3
