Nautilus Magazine -  “science, connected."

Sciences, culture and philosophy in one place
A thought-provoking, beautifully presented web-magazine: long-form articles that are a delight to read!

"Each month we choose a single topic. And each Thursday we publish a new chapter on that topic online. Each issue combines the sciences, culture and philosophy into a single story told by the world's leading thinkers and writers. We follow the story wherever it leads us. Read our essays, investigative reports, and blogs. Fiction, too. Take in our games, videos, and graphic stories. Stop in for a minute, or an hour. Nautilus lets science spill over its usual borders. We are science, connected."

Life lessons from children's literature

"It's interesting how some of life's greatest lessons can be found in children's literature. And chances are that we did not realize this back when we were kids. Sometimes it's only when we're older that we learn to fully appreciate and understand the poignant words from our childhood entertainment."
