More Than Murals: The Artist Keeping Japan's Bathhouse Art Alive

Sentos are public bathhouses with a long and rich history in Japanese culture. Traditionally, tranquil, hand-painted murals adorned the walls of each sento. These murals, which often depict soothing blue water, pastel-green landscapes and Mount Fuji, are designed to lift bathers' spirits and relax their minds. Since the 1970s, however, sentos have become less popular and bathhouse muralists are less in demand. Yet Mizuki Tanaka—Japan's first female sento mural artist—is dedicated to revitalizing this craft and making Japan’s bathhouses a destination for all once more.

How to Green the World's Deserts and Reverse Climate Change

"Desertification is a fancy word for land that is turning to desert," begins Allan Savory in this quietly powerful talk. And terrifyingly, it's happening to about two-thirds of the world's grasslands, accelerating climate change and causing traditional grazing societies to descend into social chaos. Savory has devoted his life to stopping it. He now believes -- and his work so far shows -- that a surprising factor can protect grasslands and even reclaim degraded land that was once desert.
