Fresh from the Lab
[Training Opportunity for Labs: Openscapes Champions Program] DaSL is extremely excited to partner with Openscapes to bring their Champions Program to seven lucky labs this autumn!

Our Weekly Bookmarks Bar
We’ll leave you with a quote from Natalie Babbitt’s Tuck Everlasting: “The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot. It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color.”
