 BOW WOW WOW  In case you missed it, last week we premiered #PowerofPuppies, in partnership with Puppy Chow. We brought puppies to a preschool, retirement home, and gym to transform an otherwise ordinary day for unsuspecting people. Watch and share with someone that needs the power of puppies in their lives! It's all for a good cause too! For every video view, Puppy Chow will donate one pound of Puppy Chow Natural to Rescue Bank® (up to 500,000 pounds or until April 23, 2016).
 SMOKE SIGNALS  Not all smoke is a signal of fire. Artist Paul Trillo brings smoke to the sea to capture the ethereal choreography of smoke clouds. Check out the amazing video, CHROMATICITY, and get lost in the traces of colorful smoke dancing above the ocean. Using drones that spout colorful gases, the "clouds" zoom against the blue sky in an entrancing way.

 ARCHIVED  If you've had the pleasure of visiting the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History, you know how massive their collection is. But you may not know the extent of its extensiveness! Check out these rare behind-the-scenes images of the museum's incredible archives. No biggie, just an endless aisle of drawers filled with birds and shelves upon shelves of seashells (say that 10 times fast).
 HOW SCIENTIFIC  We've found two interesting science-related articles to share with you this week. First up, taste buds! Did you know the taste of your food can influence your feelings? Something sweet might make you feel more romantic, and a bitter snack might make you feel judgmental. Our sense of taste and our emotions are connected via hormones. Read more over at the Washington Post. Next up, language! According to researchers, the sound of a language is influenced by the environment it's spoken in. The breeze and ocean waves of Hawaii has influenced the round and airy quality of the vowel-thronged language. Mahalo! And the cold, rough weather in Germany is reflected in the equally abrupt language. Read more over at Nautilus. Auf wiedersehen!
 SACRIFICE  We brought in people ages 0-100 to answer some of life’s big questions. Well, technically, we couldn’t find anyone 100 years old—but we did find a gentleman who is 105. In the newest episode, we asked the question, "What's the biggest sacrifice you've made?" Join the conversation over on Facebook.
We just launched a brand new store with both new and classic stuff. Need some inspiration along with your morning cup o' joe? Our mugs can help you get the day started! Kid President’s Pep Talk Poster is now larger so you can stay motivated from anywhere in the room. Do you ever MAKE stuff that matters? Or do you SAY stuff that matters? You probably DO stuff that matters as well! Remind yourself to MAKE/SAY/DO stuff that matter with our posters and shirts!
