This ‘Cat Library’ Lets Workers Borrow A Kitten During Work

[Click here to view the video in this article]

When government employee Tiffany Tillison posted a photo of her office’s cat “library” on Reddit, the internet exploded.

Tillison explained that the idea was from the head of public relations, who thought of bringing cats from a local animal shelter for employees to play with and to keep them company at their desks throughout the day. The Animal Care Center of Mesilla Valley brings the cats over, many of which have been abused and abandoned.

The cat library is formally known as the ‘Kitty Kondo’ and there are five cats available at a time for employees to play with. Tillison also added that the program has raised awareness about cats who need homes and many cats have been adopted through it.

Watch the short video about the ‘Kitty Kondo’ below.

20 ‘Best & Worst’ Fonts To Use On Your Résumé

Image: Tom Beck

As a job application is filled mainly with text, it’s important to let your résumé stand out from the sea of similar looking wordings and leave a positive impression on your potential employer.

Design resource Canva has come up with a list of ‘20 Best And Worst Fonts To Use On Your Résumé’.

Unsurprisingly, designer’s pet font—Helvetica—made the list as one of the best fonts that you can use on your job application. The Swiss sans-serif typeface is a hot favorite for its clean lines and clarity, conveying professionalism in an instant.

Many typefaces from the ClearType Font Collection, such as Cambria, Calibri and Constantia, are also recommended as they were designed for good on-screen and printed performance.

On the other hand, Arial and Times New Roman fall under the ‘Worst Fonts’ category as they are overused and abused.

The usual suspects like Comic Sans, Papyrus and Impact also belong to the group of fonts that you should avoid using in a résumé. These typefaces are inappropriate for formal and professional applications, and are not easy on the eye.

Check out which other fonts made the list over here.

Chilling ‘Child For Sale’ Infomercial Touts Youngsters As Merchandise

[Click here to view the video in this article]

On Children’s Day, China’s Social Assistance Foundation (CSAF) launched its campaign against child trafficking.

The infomercial titled ‘Child For Sale’, has children portrayed as products and was created by BBH China.

The masked trafficker pushes for sales of his ‘wares’ by taking on the persona of a heartless salesman, highlighting the benefits and bargain prices of each child.

Deng Fei, pioneer of Sina Weibo’s anti-trafficking action and founder of the Children’s Fund at CSAF, said on LBBOnline, “Child trafficking is still a serious problem in China–demand is the primary root of the problem. Our aim is to eliminate a ‘buyers market’. BBH China’s work is a refreshing perspective on the issue and we hope it will trigger the attention we need to raise awareness in the community via the internet–a most powerful tool that can empower the public and police to keep our children safe.”

Watch the chilling video below.
