  • Pope Francis made waves when he stated that babies were the most important people in the Sistene Chapel and instructed mothers to go right ahead and breastfeed them if they were hungry. (He isn’t afraid of nipples.)

  • A conference on Humanitarian Technology bringing together academics, practitioners and industry will be held in Boston in May. “HumTech2014: Science, Systems and Global Impact” seeks proposals here.
