Yes, humans have a tendency to screw things up, but every now and then, some of us do amazing things. This edition of Weekend Reader is dedicated to examples of human achievement, including scientists revolutionizing batteries for the good of the planet, a pop star breaking all the rules, an Indigenous runner who refuses to stay quiet, a icon of traditional values who abandoned everything he stood for, and an unassuming guy who pulled off one of the most mythical runs in bowling history.

Also In Today’s Weekend Reader:

  • Solving the mystery behind a legendarily incomplete symphony.
  • A visionary who is revolutionizing African art.
  • The power of a mustache.
