The Batik Guild via Scout Report
"The art of decorating cloth in this way, using wax and dye, has been practised for centuries. In Java, Indonesia, batik is part of an ancient tradition, and some of the finest batik cloth in the world is still made there. The word batik originates from the Javanese tik and means to dot."

Mark Twain’s Unexpurgated Autobiography
This is the first of a three volume set of Twain's autobiography, which includes many of Twain's observations that were filtered out in early editions.  I definitely plan to read all of them.  Twain is one of heroes.

Twain’s opposition to incipient imperialism and American military intervention in Cuba and the Philippines, for example, were well known even in his own time. But the uncensored autobiography makes it clear that those feelings ran very deep and includes remarks that, if made today in the context of Iraq or Afghanistan, would probably lead the right wing to question the patriotism of this most American of American writers.
