What we were clicking on and talking about this week at #FathomHQ.
The Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards just released this year’s winners. My favorite is the disco-dancing lemur. Or the knee-slapping (or should I say, fin-slapping) seal. I can’t decide. – Daniel, editorial assistant
I’m so sorry I’m going to miss the sunset in Berlin. The always illuminating James Turrell has bathed a 250-year-old church in light that gradually fades from blue to lilac to pink to green to white every evening. It’s a serene, dreamlike setting of the sun to bolster against gray winter days. – Jeralyn, editorial director
Transportation to Newark for $16, the credit cards that get you into the best airport lounges, Shake Shack’s elusive breakfast sandwich, and more tips from a pilot on how to navigate New York City airports. – Berit, editor
I have the opposite of a greenthumb, so I’ve always been a little scared to bring plants into my home. But this pocket-sized greenhouse looks easy and perfect for the coming colder months. – Becky, assistant editor
It’s been a year for volcanoes: Mount Etna in Italy, Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai in Tonga, and Momotombo in Nicaragua are among many that have erupted in 2015. The Atlantic sums up the year’s explosions with incredible photography. – Daniel
Fight the winter blues and more with a dose of surfing. Biarritz doctors are prescribing the sport as an antidote for chronic ailments like depression and heart disease. – Berit
Writer Ann Morgan spent a year on a round-the-world trip by reading a book from every single country. Talk about an ambitious travel-at-home goal. Especially love the map TED put together for all 196 books. – Becky
