He calls these “elements of community capital.” This article contains ideas that are core to NPQ’s views.

- Prince George was not impressed at the Queen's birthday parade
By Emma Hinchliffe - Saturday Jun 17, 2017
London celebrated Queen Elizabeth II's 91st birthday with Trooping the Colour, her annual birthday parade, on Saturday.
The Queen's great-grandson, however, was not impressed. Three-year-old Prince George watched the parade from a balcony (and behind a window) at Buckingham Palace with his family.
Prince George's 4th birthday is next week, and the Queen's real birthday was back in April. So maybe he was salty she was stealing his birthday week?More about Watercooler, Uk, Royal Family, Prince George, and Queen Elizabeth Ii

- 3 things we learned at E3 about 'Ni No Kuni II,' the gorgeous Studio Ghibli-like game
By Tina Amini - Thursday Jun 15, 2017
The absolutely gorgeous game developed by Level-5 in association with Studio Ghibli, Ni No Kuni, is getting a sequel, and it’s coming with some changes. But not everyone is super into the idea of them yet.
On the E3 showfloor this week, I played a slice of Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom. The demo mostly consisted of two big boss battles: one, a fire-breathing dragon; and the other, a fist-pounding guerrilla creature. Playing as Evan, a young adult and overthrown king of Ding Dong Dell, I thrust my sword at the claws and furry butt of my boss enemies.
