Why you should care

From housing options for homeless vets to experiential gift ideas, here’s the best of OZY this week.

This week we took an in-depth look at homelessness — who faces it and what solutions could help address its often fluid state.

And for those looking to share a new home, we explored some apps that not only assist with the apartment hunt but also help you find a roommate whom you might still like in three months.

We also learned that the North Pole is picking up speed and that soaking in a colorful thermal spring in Tuscany is a great way to slow down.

Read on for stories about trash-free holiday gifts and a man who performed 815 autopsies in a single night. Here are our favorites on OZY this week.
