Let’s Talk About This ‘Classical’ Architecture Thing, Strongmen, And Fascism

Dear United States, this isn’t new – but it is alarming. “For centuries, autocrats, authoritarians, and dictators have held a fascination with using architecture as a political tool to glorify their regimes, often while also dismissing modern architectural styles as lowbrow, cold, or weak. The current crop of far-right world leaders with authoritarian impulses is no different—and that now appears to include President Donald Trump.” – Slate

A History Of Poets Laureate

The poet laureate tradition is long. Poet laureates were first recognized in Italy during the fourteenth century. Ben Jonson became England’s first poet laureate in 1616, although the first “official” poet laureate, John Dryden, received his appointment in 1668. The present title in the United States, however, wasn’t authorized until an act of Congress in 1985 — prior to that they were known as “Consultants in Poetry.” – Los Angeles Times

The Nikola Badger is faster, more efficient, and arguably better looking than the Cybertruck

Joining the pickup-truck revolution with companies like Ford, Tesla, Rivian, General Motors, and even Hummer (did you catch that Super Bowl commercial?), Nikola Motor Company’s Badger is a Pickup with a, shall I say, conservative-futuristic aesthetic… but here’s where it does push boundaries. It accelerates faster than the single-motor rear-wheel-drive Cybertruck with a 0-60mph acceleration time of 2.9 seconds, has a higher peak horsepower of 960, and even overtakes the Cybertruck with a full-ba...

The Biodiversity Heritage Library Makes 150,000 High-Res Illustrations of the Natural World Free to Download

You may have heard of "plant blindness," a condition defined about 20 years ago that has started to get more press in recent years. As its name suggests, it refers to an inability to identify or even notice the many plant species around us in our everyday lives. Some have connected it to a potentially more widespread affliction they call "nature deficit disorder," which is also just what it sounds like: a set of impairments brought on by insufficient exposure to the natural world. One might als...

A Fire Tears Through New York’s Museum Of Chinese In America, Destroying 85,000 Irreplaceable Works

In the heart of Chinatown, the collection was central to the history of Chinese Americans – and, because the building is structurally unsound, no one can go in to retrieve the water-soaked items to save at least some of them. “Among the thousands of items in the collection believed to be lost is a document from 1883 about the Chinese Exclusion Act. Other irreplaceable pieces included the carefully written letters of bachelors working in the United States to send money home ‘even though they did...

EWG warns forever chemicals are contaminating US drinking water at levels far worse than expected

Toxic ‘forever chemicals’ known as PFAS, per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances, persist in the environment, grossly tainting the drinking water of many United States cities, like Miami, New Orleans and Philadelphia. More specifically, findings by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) reveal that the a 2018 estimate of 110 million U.S. citizens being contaminated with PFAS is far below actual numbers. “It’s nearly impossible to avoid contaminated drinking water from these chemicals,” shared David ...

Grand Wailea's stained glass windows

The year 1965 proved tumultuous for the people of Indonesia. Massive power shifts were taking place in the country, and Indonesia’s leader, known as Sukarno, found himself the subject of a military coup. Anti-communist sentiment lead to a genocide of around 800,000 people, including some ethincally Chinese people as well as communists. Sukarno landed in house arrest (where he would die in 1970). It’s perhaps no wonder that Yvonne Cheng, an artist who would eventually become known for painting...
