πŸ‘‹ Hi friends,

Welcome to the latest edition of Newley’s Notes, a weekly newsletter containing my recent Wall Street Journal stories, must-read links on tech and life, and funny dog videos.

Image of the week, above: taking in a recent sunset here in Hong Kong.

Here are 10 items worth your time this week:

1) πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ A group of cryptocurrency investors nearly succeeded in an attempt to purchase a rare copy of the U.S. constitution, raising more than $40 million but losing out to private collector.

2) 🦠 New research on Covid–19’s origins in China points not to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, but to the market where animals that can carry the virus were sold.

3) 🎨 A massive new contemporary art museum, called M+, just opened here in Hong Kong; there are concerns about censorship. (I haven’t visited. Yet!)

4) πŸͺ› Apple is introducing a self-service repair program so people can fix their own iPhones and Macs.

5) πŸ“· Here are the winning photos from the first-ever Natural Landscape Photography Awards.

6) 🏞️ The National Park Service will for the first time be headed by a Native American: Charles β€œChuck” Sams III, who is Cayuse and Walla Walla and hails from Eastern Oregon.

7) πŸ“Ί Netflix now provides a list of the top ten most watched movies and shows around the world (also viewable by country).

8) πŸ‘ The ATL Rap Map, painted by designer Joseph Veazey, shows Atlanta spots mentioned in hit songs through the years.

9) 🍴 catalogs things humans have eaten over the millennia.

10) ⚑ Forget Tesla. Is Hyundai making the coolest looking electric vehicles these days, or what?
