An Interview with HGTV Dream Home Designer Brian Patrick Flynn

The job of an interior designer, according to Brian Patrick Flynn, is to create something that is "50% my taste, and 50% of the clients' tastes," he says.

However, motorcycles can be purchased--even on credit--so a number of entrepreneurs in the region have invested in a bike, and offer taxi service with it to generate income. Image credit: Simisa Locally referred to as boda bodas, these motorbike taxis are ubiquitous; CityLab estimates that "there may be as many as 300,000 boda bodas in Uganda alone." To attract fares, boda boda drivers need to stand out in a crush of traf...

Can Hip Hop Dance Show Hold A Whole Evening Off-Broadway?

“There’s a massive hole,” producer Lyndsay Magid Aviner said of the lack of urban dance on New York stages. Coming from the circus world, the Aviners said they believe there’s a broad audience for physical storytelling. Justin Peck’s popular 2017 work “The Times Are Racing” for New York City Ballet, danced in sneakers, convinced them that audiences would embrace the kind of work the Madrids are doing. Taking a cue from movement-based hits like “Blue Man Group,” “Stomp” and “Fuerza Bruta,...

How Margaret Mead’s Reputation Eroded

Within anthropology, Mead is still revered, but mostly as a way to understand the discipline’s origins. In the popular mind, Mead’s name has all but vanished, her reputation whittled down to an apocryphal quote found on coffee mugs and dorm-room posters: ‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.’ What’s more, Mead has become a target of vitriolic dislike for a particular kind of cultural conservatism. –...

The Very Controversial Start Of Asian-American Literature Studies

Students of Asian American literature have often been far more familiar with what is wrong with Aiiieeeee! than with Aiiieeeee! itself. From the earliest days of its publication, many Asian Americans did not hear themselves in the scream of Aiiieeeee!, did not see themselves in the “our” of its “fifty years of our whole voice.” They chafed against what they saw as the editorial limiting of “authentic” Asian Americanness to “Filipino, Chinese, and Japanese Americans, American born and raise...

Lifshitz created a machine-run reproduction of a ceramic jigger that can produce impressive plates and bowls—complete with unique inclusions and a maker’s signature.
