Sea Otter Does Some Grooming on the Beach

Via Tom Coates, who writes:

I went to Moss Landing, as I often do when I'm down that part of the coast, because you can see Sea Otters from the beach park. Unusually this time though, one of the otters was on the beach and I managed to take this photo from a little cliff above them. I needed a decent size zoom and I cropped the picture quite a lot to get it. I made sure not to disturb the otter.

ICC 2017 Women's Cricket World Cup Begins!

Date: June 24, 2017

It's the opening day of the ICC Women's World Cup! If you haven't yet taken a whack at the whimsical wickets of our Doodle cricket game, prepare to be bowled over!


Ah, summer: the sound of leather on willow, and the spectacle of cricket ... cricket! As the tournament begins, something buzzes outside. A team of crickets sans tickets have set up their own wickets for a game of pest cricket! As they face their archrivals, the snails, it’s sure to be a match for the centuries. Don’t be fooled by their sluggish looks — these fielders can be fast on their feet!

To celebrate the 2017 ICC Women's World Cup, we’re inviting everyone to tap/click and take a swing at our pocket-size game!

We know that cricket is loved worldwide, so we wanted to make sure our Doodle works for everyone, including those on slower mobile networks. We kept the file size fly-sized, and the result is our smallest interactive Doodle ever — even snail networks can load it in seconds.

Whether you're enjoying the tournament at a snail’s pace or bowling faster than the beat of a hummingbird's wings, here's hoping you hit it out of the park this summer!

Posted by Tom "The Kittenmaster" Cooper

It’s time to put your paws in the air and welcome our latest Star Kit, Legs. She is a 5 week old Tabby from Gainesville, Florida.

Legs

Legs is one of four beautiful babies born by a stray queen at a tiny little apartment complex in Gainesville, FL. Unlike her other brothers and sisters, she was born with twisted back legs, also known as Swimmer’s Legs. Even with her disability, she still scoots around, plays, dominates, eats, and defecates. She is the most shy out of all her siblings, but is loving in her own little way.
Already having two cats, she is the only one of the kittens we are keeping, due to believing if we turn her into a rescue or shelter, she will have the highest chance of being euthanized. We are willing to put the time and effort into her care, and don’t believe she is suffering or deserving of being put “out of her misery”.

2017 World Taekwondo Championships Muju

Date: June 24, 2017

Integrity, perseverance, self-control, and indomitable spirit — all of these are on display at the 2017 World Taekwondo Championships in Muju, South Korea. Oh, and some pretty impressive knee strikes and reverse round kicks! 

The World Taekwondo Championships have taken place every other year since 1973. Outside of the Olympics, they’re the most prestigious event for those who practice the sport — in fact, the seven days feature more competitors from a greater number of nations than does the four-day Olympic event. Many talented athletes will make names for themselves at the championships this year, and their careers will be carefully followed by taekwondo enthusiasts as the Tokyo 2020 Olympics approach.  

Though taekwondo is an intensely physical sport, its philosophical roots center on the building of a more peaceful society. By cultivating a foundation of respect, humility, and control in the individual, practitioners of taekwondo aim to inspire this sense of responsibility and spirituality in others through their actions and teachings. 

Today’s Doodle was created with community and diversity in mind. Who will emerge victorious in this year’s Worlds? We can’t wait to find out!

I'm really excited that I'll be attending the American Library Association's Annual Conference in Chicago from Friday June 23 through Sunday June 25, 2017. I'll be working at the IBPA Booth (#3529) helping the IBPA Indie-Publisher and Author-Publisher members with their Author signings.



If you'll be there at #ALAAC17, too, please swing by and say "Hi!"

The light in me recognizes and acknowledges the light in you,
Lee
