The children celebrated May Day on Wednesday May 1st this year. After patiently through several soggy spring days, the children were finally able to celebrate May Day on Friday May 11th. They started with a few recitations of spring verse, followed by skipping and dancing around the Maypole, and wrapped up with decorating their spring flower cookies while enjoying a refreshing glass of lemonade.

“I never thought that a local school would turn out to have such major significance in my life,” the 36-year-old said. “But now I can’t imagine things any other way.” Read more »

Earlier this month, Google announced a new “multitask mode” for its Chrome browser, allowing people to increase productivity by using a mouse in each hand, at the same time. It was, of course, just one of the Internet giant’s many April Fool’s Day jokes. But the germ of the gag – “While browsing, you’re only using 50 per cent of your hands,” deadpanned a designer in a video tutorial – is just a hair away from being a viable idea and, as such, it gets at the heart of Google’s philosophy of innovation: Constantly question everything.
