Currently, six of the top 20 selling books on Amazon are adult coloring books. The unlikely pastime for those of us who have successfully graduated from kindergarten has been gaining popularity of late, as an easy means to express oneself and de-stress along the way.

Coloring allows to unlock your creative potential. Perhaps more important, it helps relieve tension and anxiety. It unlocks memories of childhood and simpler times. As psychologist Antoni Martínez explains: “I recommend it as a relaxation technique. We can use it to enter a more creative, freer state. I recommend it in a quiet environment, even with chill music. Let the color and the lines flow.”

Using data from Toronto, a team of researchers has found that having 10 more trees on your block has self-reported health benefits akin to a $10,000 salary raise or moving to a neighbourhood with a $10,000 higher median income or being seven years younger.

By comparing satellite imagery of Toronto, an inventory of trees on public land and general health surveys, the team, led by University of Chicago psychologist Marc Berman, found that people who live on a tree-lined block are less likely to report conditions such as high blood pressure, obesity, heart disease or diabetes.

One daring escape from Auschwitz was staged by Eugeniusz Bendera,  Kazimierz Piechowski, Stanisław Gustaw Jaster, and Józef Lempart. On June 20, 1942. After breaking into a warehouse, the four dressed as members of the SS-Totenkopfverbände (the SS units responsible for concentration camps), armed themselves with guns, and stole an SS staff car, which they then drove unchallenged through the main gate.

If caught, they were not going to shoot at the Germans because they knew the retribution that would then be taken on the other prisoners would be horrific. Instead, they planned to shoot themselves.  

Once they reached a checkpoint, one of them yelled “Damn buggers, open up! How long shall we wait here?!” The guards them complied and let them pass.

This event has been recreated on film, narrated by Former concentration camp political prisoner Kazimierz Piechowski and can be viewed here: [x]
