During an illustrious career which saw him win multiple awards and worldwide recognition, Theodore Geisel published over 60 books, the majority of which he wrote and illustrated under the pen name Dr.
Seuss. Despite his busy schedule, and just months after the release of The Cat in the Hat, Geisel set aside time to write a charming letter — a picture of which can be seen below — to a 13-year-old aspiring illustrator by the name of Howard Cruse.

The Service Factory of the Future. Imagine a world where you never have to try frantically to get through to customer service when your internet service goes down and then struggle to troubleshoot over the phone.
Instead, the provider calls you to take preemptive action—or fixes the problem before you even know you have one. And when you are shopping for a service provider, the telecom company uses available data to recommend a bundle tailored to your family’s needs and budget, so you don’t have to wade through complex combinations of pricing, service, data usage, and device options.
Over the coming decade, this vision will become a reality. Sectors as diverse as finance, transportation, energy, and telecommunications are beginning a transformation not unlike manufacturing’s adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies. The full transition to the service factory of the future entails a massive transformation that could take five to ten years. Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art by James Nestor.

Big business gets its wings as leaders from major U.S. companies partner with Pope Francis. The Pope means business. Capitalism met Catholicism on Tuesday, as some of the world’s biggest business leaders announced a new partnership with Pope Francis. The alliance, known as the Council for Inclusive Capitalism with the Vatican, aims to create a more inclusive, fair and sustainable economic landscape by taking pledges toward sustainable development goals focused on areas such as climate action, peace and justice, quality education and gender equality. “An economic system that is fair, trustworthy, and capable of addressing the most profound challenges facing humanity and our planet is urgently needed,” Pope Francis said in a statement. The Council comprises 27 core members known as the Guardians of Inclusive Capitalism, who represent companies with over $2.1 trillion in market capitalization and 200 million workers.
Members include Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan, Johnson & Johnson CEO Alex Gorsky, Salesforce CEO and founder Marc Benioff and Mastercard CEO Ajay Banga. Why Americans need a stimulus deal in three stats. Many Democrats and Republicans are in favor of additional stimulus spending, but there was little hope for a deal before the end of the year until late last week, when Democratic leaders announced support for a bipartisan proposal.
Congressional aides on both sides said that substantial progress was made over the weekend, but there's still a lot of work to do and time is running out for many Americans in need. Lawmakers already allowed some key relief programs to expire over the summer, including a $600 boost to unemployment benefits and a small business loan program. It's been months since most Americans received their $1,200 stimulus checks. Even more aid is about to run out at the end of December. Millions of people could be pushed off unemployment benefits altogether and renters could lose eviction protections if Congress doesn't act. Meanwhile, it's becoming very clear that the economic recovery is faltering.
