Today’s Interesting Fact

A key idea for Advisist is to not just consume content from people, we also want to try to add a little content to the world every day. The Researcher has spent an incalculable amount of time providing us with interesting facts about every day. We tweet these out each day. We also have a calendar that have the facts for each day. (We still have 2021 calendars, just ask for one.)

The same information is listed on the front page of the website as well as collecting previous days here.
