    I'm sitting here wondering how you got your daughter to go hiking wearing a mask.

    Also maybe why.

    How and why are related. We have set the norm that any time she is out of the house she should wear a mask. This is much more straightforward and consistent for a kindergartner than a complex series of rules about circumstances where masks are not strictly required. She's going to be wearing a mask 8 hours a day in school; setting consistent expectations at home helps this transition.

    And the exact how is fairly standard parenting: mild bribery (letting her choose mask designs), consistent messaging, praise for following directions, leading by example, and a clear explanation of how wearing a mask helps other people stay well. She's been very compliant for months; it's just another thing we do when we leave the house.

    My kid who just turned 2 is another story entirely; we're just introducing it now and it'll take some time.

    A train driver in the Netherlands has had a lucky escape thanks to a fortuitously placed art installation.

    A metro train in Spijkenisse, near the city of Rotterdam, crashed through a barrier at the end of the tracks shortly before midnight on Sunday.

    But rather than plummeting 10m (32ft) into the water below, the train was left suspended dramatically in the air.

    It ended up being delicately balanced on the large sculpture of a whale's tail at the De Akkers metro station.

And now we have to use it.
