Pakistani educator Ziauddin Yousafzai reminds the world of a simple truth that many don’t want to hear: Women and men deserve equal opportunities for education, autonomy, an independent identity. He tells stories from his own life and the life of his daughter, Malala, who was shot by the Taliban in 2012 simply for daring to go to school. "Why is my daughter so strong?” Yousafzai asks. “Because I didn’t clip her wings."

+Alan Connor's beautifully written post on that matter of how we refer to our favourite pastime. #crossword
For you, is it a ‘crossword’, a ‘puzzle’, a ‘crossword puzzle’, or even a ‘cryptic’? And does it depend on who you’re talking to?
