★ So you wanna create an eco-friendly website
I'm fully on board with pretty much every point mentioned here. Web apps are required to be dynamic but can often be optimised with some of the techniques described. Making use of caching, minification, removing dependencies and regular audits are all very useful things to consider no matter the size of the project.

★ Pharrell on Drink Champs
A lot of respect is shown between N.O.R.E. and Pharrell for each other. It's a great conversation to listen too although 3 hours is a long time. They cover a lot of topics and there's some fantastic insight into his career. If you can make the time, high recommend watching this interview.

★ AirPods Max - hear what it actually sounds like (? Headphones required)
Clever demonstration of the noise cancellation features. I have the regular AirPods and always wondered what transparency mode was like on the Pro models and now I have a pretty good idea thanks to this video.

★ Lego Crazy Action Contraptions
We have three of these LEGO x Klutz! books now, but this is the best of the lot. All the parts and instructions you need for building the contraptions they mention. There's a science focused one, called Chain Reactions which is also pretty good but that's better for older kids and you need quite a bit of your own lego to make some of it work.
These books have been a godsend during lockdown and has kept the kids entertianed, so much so they are asking us to help them put these things together.
We've succeeded in keeping the pieces together but they're quite good for just experimenting with too. All the gears, sticks and rubber bands you need to get started.
