Today I learned (TIL) about Kaizen

I just read a really interesting article on reddit from the TIL (Today I Learned) subreddit. It’s about how Toyota helped the New York City food bank. The food bank serves food for free to a lot of poor people, so it’s really important for them. A lot of major companies donate money to the food bank, but Toyota offered Kaizen instead. Toyota engineers managed to reduce the wait time for people in line for food from 90 minutes to 18 minutes. I think it’s a great example of how you can help people by using creative thinking, and not just by spending money.

Here’s a link to the article:


A subreddit about dogs

I was showing Chika some posts on reddit yesterday and we came across a subreddit called RarePuppers. I had never seen the word “pupper” before, but it’s clear that it means puppy, or dog in general, since the subreddit is all about dogs.

Someone posted this gif, of a dog helping with a garden:

This is the thing I love about reddit. There are always new and interesting subreddits to discover.


Reddit: My favorite website

Hey everyone, I wanted to share my favorite website with you. It’s called reddit. It’s a website where people cast make posts about any kind of subject in different subcategories which they call “subreddits.” Reddit is basically a big internet content feed.

The most common subreddits are for things like videos, news, music, and cute animals. But there are also tons of subreddits for very specific interests, like specific bands, TV shows, languages, health advice, objects that look like people, and thousands of others.

One of my favorite subreddits is called “mildlyinteresting.” It’s a subreddit where people post pictures of things that they found mildly interesting. Not boring, and not too interesting, just mildly interesting. Here is a link to some of the best posts on /r/mildly interesting:

As with all reddit posts, it’s important to understand the title before clicking the link, so make sure you read it if you check this out!
