by Vanessa Kimbell

None of the fuss-free, no-knead recipes - which include everything from a basic sourdough boule to tomato focaccia and apple spelt sourdough with cinnamon butter - require more than 10 minutes' active work in total (not including fermentation time or time in the oven) and mean that anyone can turn their hand to sourdough baking, no matter how little time they have.

by Kirsty Neale

From the introduction:Framing a piece of embroidery or an appliqued picture used to be a tricky and often prohibitively expensive business. The concept of framing an unumbellished piece of fabirc just because you liked the pattern was pretty much out of the question. I'm not sure when I first noticed people sharing pictures of embroidery displayed in the same hoop used to stitch it, but right from the start it seemed like the smartest of solutions.

The 100 Greatest Americans of the 20th Century: A Social Justice Hall of Fame

by Peter Dreier

A hundred years ago, any soapbox orator who called for women's suffrage, laws protecting the environment, an end to lynching, or a federal minimum wage was considered a utopian dreamer or a dangerous socialist. Now we take these ideas for granted -- because the radical ideas of one generation are often the common sense of the next. We all stand on the shoulders of earlier generations of radicals and reformers who challenged the status quo of their day. Unfortunately, most Americans know little of this progressive history. It isn't taught in most high schools. You can't find it on the major television networks. In popular media, the most persistent interpreter of America's radical past is Glenn Beck, who teaches viewers a wildly inaccurate history of unions, civil rights, and the American Left.The 100 Greatest Americans of the 20th Century, a colorful and witty history of the most influential progressive leaders of the twentieth century and beyond, is the perfect antidote.
