Learn what synthesizers do
I spent 45 minutes interacting with the sliders and buttons at Learning Synths and now I understand concepts like envelope, attack, decay, sustain, and release. I was having so much fun I didn’t realize I was being taught a lesson, either. — MF

Reference Extractor
Reference Extractor is a free tool to extract Zotero and Mendeley references from Microsoft Word .docx documents. With this tool, you can:

Extract references and save them in CSL JSON, BibTeX, or RIS format, or as a bibliography in APA style.
This feature can be useful if you e.g. lost your Zotero/Mendeley library but still have your Word documents. Or perhaps somebody sent you a Word document and you would like to get the cited items into your own reference manager library.

Midsommar Ending Explained: We're All in This Together | Collider
But the larger idea inside Midsommar is one of the importance of shared emotion. Relationships are tricky to be sure, but if there’s no foundation of empathy, of understanding, it’s tough to build a lasting companionship. We as humans don’t want to feel isolated in either our pain or joy, and one of the greatest gifts a partner or family member can give us is to share in those emotions

Imagine! You Have Nothing to Lose: Collaboration and Play in Urban Development - Katarzyna Balug, Maria Vidart-Delgado, 2015
A community-driven, collaborative approach to urban development is central to the work of the Rebuild Foundation (RF). This group of artists has spent several years forging community ties while purchasing decrepit buildings in St Louis, gradually transforming them into creative incubators with residents. In winter 2012 Social Agency Lab, a collective of urban experts, gathered to work with youths that regularly partake in RF activities. The goal was to collaboratively develop an entry for Pruitt-Igoe Now, a competition to re-imagine the urban scar left by the demolition of the public housing project. In this article, we investigate the potentialities of play in forging a common language among diverse actors. We propose that this common language enables an agonistic model of the public that privileges dissent and instability over consensus. We argue that play enables diverse groups to collaboratively imagine and perform different possibilities of urban living beyond neat, authoritative urban visions.

Outer Limits — Real Life
In his best known work, 1938’s Urbanism as a Way of Life, the Chicago School sociologist Louis Wirth wrote that “being reduced to a state of virtual impotence as an individual, urbanites are bound to exert themselves by joining with others of similar interests into organized groups to obtain their ends.” Wirth was responding to the rapid growth of industrial cities in America and the working classes that were organizing in both political directions. To him, these groups, far from being emancipatory, were “subject to manipulation by symbols and stereotypes managed by individuals working from afar or operating invisibly behind the scenes through their control of the instruments of communication.” His cynicism makes sense given the times: the American Bund was gearing up for a 4,000-person strong Nazi rally in Merrimac Park in 1939. But Chicago had also hosted many of the anarchists, socialists, and communists who had successfully agitated for an eight-hour work day in 1886.
