1. Once upon a time, before the cult of the individualist authors, people pretended their work was written by some luminary, so it would be given authority. One example of this is Ecclesiastes, which was supposedly written by Solomon. There’s a story in this vein in today’s NYT- about a man who tries to pass off his forgeries to art galleries. He doesn’t make any money out of this, but there is probably some satisfaction in joining the canon.

2. A long McKinsey report about recruiting top students to the teaching profession. It may be worth it to look at the pictures.

3. I feel like a hipster infiltration is loosening the Economist‘s editorial policies.
