Get to know Grand Rapids (and the world)

Interesting Reads of the Week

Outside is really churning out some good long form pieces, this one, a fascinating look into the travel industry in Papua New Guinea | Murder and Revenge in Papua New Guinea

Unfortunately, the Grand Rapids Griffins lost in their series to the Texas Stars, but during Game 5, between the third period and overtime, I remember my days of covering MSU hockey and my desire to drive a zamboni. So I looked up Zamboni school. Sure enough, New York Times covered the idea in 2010. Zamboni Driving Lessons 

England has a Whisky Scene? (NY Times) A neat look at the new distilling industry in England, and how it’s shadowed by Scotland.

Rangers and Montreal Revive Historic Rivalry (NY Times) I’ve taken a likening to hockey again. And I always enjoy franchises with history. So this is a fun series.

World Cup Shootout: Can Nike Beat Adidas at Soccer (Business Week) I’m excited for this summer. And personally, I’m an Adidas guy. But this is a neat look at the soccer war.

I like pictures of cool things in the world. So here’s a gallery.
