Declawing: A new study shows we can’t look the other way
This isn't my normal kind of link, but the AVMA has hesitated to oppose the practice on domestic cats and I think Americans are at a particular disadvantage when it comes to being provided information on and understanding the effects of declawing cats. This post is enlightening, even for me, and I've always opposed declawing cats…

If you like TV, and you like music, this is awesome. It's a site with an index of music and songs appearing every episode of popular shows (and movies). You can find what song was playing in the end credits without having to rewind and Shazam it, or search by artist to see where they've been featured in the world of television and movies.

Screens has long been one of the best VNC clients for Mac.

It also got a speed boost, resulting in reduced screen lag and ultra-sharp image. If you have [Setapp](https://go.setapp.com/stp44), you already have it!

Placeit (with video)
I've mentioned Placeit before. It lets you upload screenshots and frame them in high quality stock photos of any device. Since the last time I've mentioned it, they've added the ability to put screen recordings into devices and save as video, as well as a whole section of t-shirt and poster mockups with models and settings. (It appears to be what [Teespring](https://teespring.com/stores/lab) is using now for the marketing photos they generate for user campaigns.) It's not cheap ($8 for a one-off high-res mockup), but the quality is worth it for anyone serious about marketing.

Customizable colors, tagging/categorization, calendar and day views, and easy pushing of overdue tasks to the current day. I especially like the ability to select multiple tasks and pinch them apart to spread their due times out.
