The best thing about a globe is that it’s an entry point for everybody. Everybody plays in that world…it’s a community-building tool. (Ron Miriello)
As an employee of MOVA, I’m always drawn to other globes when I see them (it’s hard not to be). Naturally, I was intrigued when I stumbled across the 100 Worlds Project, a collection of interpreted globe sculptures built from materials you would never imagine a globe to be built of – pencils, shoe soles, book pages, steel cables, just to name a few. When I found out that Ron is based in San Diego, I reached out to him and he suggested getting lunch to talk about our globes. It was on a sunny Friday afternoon that my co-worker Tori and I met up with Ron at a local seafood joint.
May on Instagram was full of good things for MOVA!
1. We finally learned the ins and outs of our new UV printer and created our first round of customized bases just in time for graduation.
2. We received a video shout out from Emily Calandrelli (aka @TheSpaceGal) who was posing with her brand new Jupiter MOVA Globe. She is an Emmy-nominated TV host and the field correspondent on Bill Saves the World. Now that was awesome.

The nightstand is one of the most underrated décor pieces. It’s the perfect space for storing your favorite reading materials and photos, but it is also a great place to show off your design aesthetic. If you’re like the average person, you spend about a third of your life sleeping, meaning you spend a third of your life next to this small piece of furniture. Why not use your nightstand to enhance visual appeal and create your desired environment in the room you spend the most time in? Here are some nightstand décor ideas to inspire you…
1. Industrial, yet elegant, this wire nightstand can be hung directly on the wall.
If you are looking for a vacation destination that allows you to explore a combination of coast, highlands, and jungle, then Peru should be on your radar. Located on the west coast of South America, Peru is an extremely diverse country with a wide-range of natural features and climates. You can travel to the arid plains on the Pacific coast, the peaks of the Andes mountains and the tropical Amazon basin, all within one country. The best time of the year for travel and hiking through Peru is between April and October, however, if you don’t plan to do much hiking, any time of the year is suitable for travel.
Aside from being filled with breathtaking landscapes, Peru is also full of history. The Peruvian territory was once home to the Norte Chico civilization, the oldest known civilization in the Americas with settlements dating back to 3200 BC. It was also home to the Inca Empire, the largest empire in the Pre-Columbian America. Peru has preserved a ton of these ancient settlements so people from all over the world can visit the ruins and take a journey to the past.
