While Notd was created to help publishers offer subscriptions to just sections of news, its versatile design makes it a great place to reach a wide audience. And we don't have ads, so that changes a lot. Here are some of the reasons why you should try out Notd (it doesn't cost anything to try it).
Do you create a podcast every week (or more often) and need a way to monetize it without embedding ads in them? Notd lets you offer subscriptions to podcasts, along with their transcripts if you want, without creating a website or getting a deal with a streaming service that will give you a fraction of a fraction of their revenue, according to a formula that works best for their most popular podcasters. It doesn't cost anything to create an account on Notd to offer subscriptions to your podcasts - read the whole note.

The emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis, has been a cause for concern for foresters and landowners alike in the United States. The beetle originated in Asia and was first observed in the United States near Detroit, Michigan, in 2002. It killed nearly 99% of ash trees near its place of original introduction. By 2018, EAB has been observed in thirty-five states and has killed hundreds of millions of ash trees in North America.
On a particularly hot day, when even the air conditioning can’t seem to keep you from breaking a sweat, your best bet may be to get out of the city. On hot days, air temperatures in a city can be as much as 22°F (12°C) hotter than the air in nearby, less developed areas. Scientists have come to call this the Urban Heat Island (UHI) effect.
Today marks the fiftieth anniversary of Earth Day. While the world around us has dramatically changed since its first celebration fifty years ago, we will take a moment to reflect on the legacy of Earth Day that has continued to inspire action through the decades.
