The Adventures of Business Cat. I loved this comic strip about the very serious adventures of business cat. You know you’re doing well when your business cat boss leaves a dead bird on your desk.

Rangers rescue baby elephant. These pictures show rangers jumping into a drinking hole at Addo Elephant National Park to rescue a baby elephant. They managed to get the baby out but when they ran away it started following them. “Please don’t leave me!”

You don’t need 8 glasses of water a day. How much should you drink? Three or four cups a day should be fine. (And tea/coffee/juice counts!)

“Preventing burnout is part of your job. Staying well rested is part of your job.” A necessary reminder about why having down time, looking after yourself and taking leave is important.

How the sun sees you. This video shows the not-yet-visible changes in people’s skin and the amazing power of sunscreen. And, as summer approaches, an important reminder that “a tan is a sign of skin injury”. Find out what actually happens to your skin when you get a sunburn.
