Happy leap day! Here is something you don't see every day...a map of the West Side of Buffalo from before D'Youville College was founded (1908). How many changes can you note?

Looking for a place to record a quick song or two, but don't have the cash to pay for studio time? Your best bet could be the library.

Many Buffalonians know that Grover Cleveland was mayor of Buffalo before moving on to become governor of New York and president of the United States. Other than that, we don’t have much to say about the man who lived here for 27 years practicing law and serving as sheriff and mayor. There are a few…

"Our attention switches every 45 seconds, according to Gloria Mark, informatics professor at the University of California, Irvine. By 9 a.m., I had more tabs, emails, calls, plans, lists — while also listening to a story and taking a survey. I was caught up in the process of consuming."

We know, we know. Digital distractions make us less focused. In a challenge from WNYC's Note to Self podcast, NPR staff come face to face with their consumption addictions.

Happy birthday to Alice Walker!

Happy 72nd birthday to literary pioneer, Alice Walker!

In 1982, Walker published her most celebrated work, “The Color Purple", and became the first African American woman to win a Pulitzer Prize for Literature and the National Book Award for Fiction.

Her works, which are deeply influenced by Zora Neale Hurston, focuses on the telling of Black women's stories. In fact, because of Hurston's influence, it was Walker who helped pay for Hurston's headstone, which had been left unmarked for over 10 years.

“In my work and in myself I reflect Black people, women and men, as I reflect others. One day even the most self-protective ones will look into the mirror I provide and not be afraid.”

Ms. Walker, thank you for honoring those that came before you, and inspiring all those that will come after. Happy Birthday!

If you imagine millennials are just young people entranced by their cellphones or tablet computers, you might want to think again. According to a new study , 92% of college students would rather do their reading the old-fashioned way, with pages and not pixels.
