Ten of the Best #74

Welcome to my weekly Ten of the Best, where I post my ten favourite things from my social media feeds during the week. I have great fun doing it, and you all seem to enjoy it too, so what started as a pastime has become a weekly obsession for me. If you’re here for the first time ever, you’re going to have to make this one last - I’m taking a break for the rest of December. See you in the new year. But I do have the last list of 2016 for you guys, and its a good one.

It’s the end of the school year, and here’s something for teachers. Click the pic.

Trevor Noah unpacks Donald Trump’s post-truth politics. This is brilliant, even better than his argument in which he destroys Tomi

That's why we should all be more like this dangerous professor. Angry, not shamed. Great writing. 

This is what San Francisco’s done. Bravo! 

And this is what Temba Maqubela, an ex-South Africa, has done at Groton school. Amazing stuff. 

And back in SA - Is that a clot in the gravy? asks Tom Eaton. 

Fear keeping Zuma around - The Big Read was en pointe this week. Justice Malala his usual brilliant self. 

There are so many “Best Books of 2016” posts going up already, so I thought I’d share one that links to most of them. It also has a few picks of its own, one of which I’ve read. All these things do actually is help with my Christmas gift list. 

This is the cutest dogs and kids clip ever. It made me tear up. 

It's nearly Christmas - and we're all thinking about dieting. Here's Michael MacIntyre's take.

The 2016 song is too rude and sweary. I much prefer Summer Wonderland. This is our Christmas, guys. I love this.

And what on earth do I sign out with? Well it’s a repeat (and it's the bonus track, if you're counting). But to be fair, someone did repost it this week, so that qualifies it, doesn't it? It’s these wonder women who play musical instruments. In killer heels. As I said last time, R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

Well cheers, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas and all that. See you in 2017. And don't forget - I'm on a break.

Here is the 2016 compilation of the Tens of the Best, in case you miss me too much.
