Curated Notes: Content Compilation for August 2017

Curated Notes are an ongoing compilation of books, articles, videos, and other information related to personal development, simple living, and more. Consider it discovered content I've lingered on and believe to be worth sharing. Read more here. 

In an era of #fakenews and #alternativefacts I think it is important to consume information from several content sources in order to get a wholistic understanding of all sides of a topic and better inform your individual perspective.

As such, I thought I'd share a shortlist of some of my favorite news, blogs, and publications by category.
