The Purpose Of Scientific Papers?

It’s enough for them to draw attention to an idea that is worth pursuing further—and an idea need not be true, well-justified given all our evidence, nor even believed by the scientist in order to pass that test. – Nautilus

Queer Cutlets at Judy’s Cafe

Stuck like a plum in a pound cake for a decade at The Philadelphia Inquirer, I wondered where to eat. A colleague knew I needed a spot to eat that would make me feel like myself, so he took me — so I recall, maybe he recommended it — to Judy’s Cafe, on South 3rd and Bainbridge in, yes, Queen Village. – Jeff Weinstein

Hello, Toscanini. And Hello, Doris Day — Hiding out from 2021 in the 1950s

On many days lately, the last places I’ve wanted to be are 2020 and 2021. I’ve been retreating to the 1950s, creating in my apartment a musical time capsule. That’s thanks to Brooklynites who have been clearing out their closets while stuck at home, finding all manner of LP records and depositing them in second-hand stores, where I’ve stumbled upon them at giveaway prices. Those neighbors have allowed their past to be my present. – David Patrick Stearns

Sorry — The Brain Is Not A Muscle That Grows Stronger With Use

In recent years, I.Q. scores have stopped rising or have even begun to drop in countries like Finland, Norway, Denmark, Germany, France and Britain. Some researchers suggest that we have pushed our mental equipment as far as it can go. It may be that “our brains are already working at near-optimal capacity.” – The New York Times

In North Carolina, A New Statue Will Honor Formerly Hidden History

A few days ago, David Zucchino’s book on the 1898 Wilmington Massacre won a Pulitzer Prize. Now, a new statue is about to go up on the North Carolina-Wilmington campus, acknowledging and permanently memorializing the coup and massacre. The challenge for artist Dare Coulter: “‘How do you depict Black joy, resilience,”‘but also convey the horror of the massacre.” – Wilmington StarNews

Bard day’s work: what I learned from eavesdropping on RSC rehearsals

The Royal Shakespeare Company is letting the public watch the usually secret processes towards performance – from clapping games to verse sessionsThe creative process normally takes place behind closed doors. But the RSC has boldly upended that idea by streaming its Open Rehearsal Project for Henry VI Part One. What this means, in practice, is that cameras are admitted for three sessions each day. At 10am we watch a half-hour company warm-up. From noon, for 90 minutes, we get to see either a cla...

Boston Merges Ballet And Virtual Reality

It’s impressively intimate: It’s impressively intimate: “As you stand in the middle of an undulating semi-circle of bodies, each moving with snakelike ports de bras, you discover how eye contact can change the tenor of a performance. By its very design, VR dance is meant to be this visceral. The audience is but a hair away from the action, and occasional trips and slides, and the intricacies of choreography and gesture. Pickett describes the experience as akin to ‘having the movement land o...

The Healing Power Of Queer Coming Of Age Stories

Books can be intensely powerful for some people, especially when the books do the work of repairing past pain. “‘So many queer people ‘have been through immense pain growing up in our adolescence,’ Dr. Matos told me. Attempts by the broader culture to ‘limit who we loved, what we desire, what we do with our bodies’ abound. In these stories, then, we get the chance to imagine what it might have been like to grow up in the world depicted on the page or screen instead.” – The New York Times

When A Movie Understands A Generational Dilemma

In the Heights might have opened to disappointing box office numbers this weekend, but those who did see it had the chance to learn about second-generation immigrants’ dreams – and, through an elderly character, reality. “The classic peril of assimilation in America is that a perceived greater belonging demands a partial loss of self,” but Abuela Claudia’s character offers more. – The Atlantic

Jeanne-Claude And Christo Drew Up Plans In 1962 To Wrap The Arc De Triomphe

Envisioning A Kinder, More Beautiful Apocalypse

Filmmaker Jim Mickle: “I started asking questions like, ‘What if you could make an apocalyptic story where you actually want to go to that world?’ What does that look like? And you start asking, ‘What happens if humans just disappear for 10 years and nature is suddenly allowed to thrive?’ It would probably be one of the most beautiful places you could go to.” – Slate
