Two California Theatres Lay Off Their Artistic Directors. Now What?

The decisions suggest that the theater world will likely continue to feel the effects of the pandemic long after artists and audiences are again allowed to gather. Eliminating a position, as opposed to merely furloughing or laying off, adds another obstacle to theaters reopening and rebounding. Either a hiring committee must decide to re-create a leadership position and rehire, or a theater must rebuild after the pandemic while deprived of a leader. – San Francisco Chronicle

A Different Way Of Thinking About The Purpose Of Education

Too often schools are tasked not simply with caring for their students but with repairing an entire social order. Schools can do so much we do not ask of them, like developing solidarity, fostering political responsibility, and ensuring a love of learning for its own sake.

Why Do Some Technologies Transform Our World And Others Don’t

Although the private sector brought electricity to the big cities—New York, Chicago, St. Louis—the federal government’s Rural Electrification Administration brought electricity to much of America, helping to make radio, electric appliances, television and telecommunications part of everyone’s daily lives.

This company makes windows that convert to balconies

HofmanDujardin makes Bloomframe windows that work like a Murphy bed, opening up into a balcony. The only disconcerting part might be the pane of glass that doubles as a floor. That might trigger guests' vertigo, and walking around on it seeks it might scuff or scratch it. I would cut a piece of carpet for when it's down, or at least make guests take of their shoes. Here's another demo and a Chinese ad: Image: YouTube / HofmanDujardin
