​At LAUSD, behind the smiles, deep rifts​ remain after strike. At some campuses, ‘It’s the elephant in the room’

The United Teachers Los Angeles walkout at the L.A. Unified School District wasn’t an especially long strike, but it was an emotionally tense and high-stakes week in which teachers — who normally are working in their classrooms — found themselves in the national spotlight. For teachers, the six-day walkout involved tough decisions about whether to go out on the line or cross it, days of standing in the rain and callous mud-slinging amongst leaders. It also involved atypical hours to socialize wh...

Visualizing the Bass Playing Style of Motown’s Iconic Bassist James Jamerson: “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” “For Once in My Life” & More

As part of Motown’s Funk Brothers house band, James Jamerson was the bubbling bass player behind hundreds of hit records from Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, Martha and the Vandellas, and plenty more. His licks duck and dive and weave like Ali but never get in the way of the melody or the rest of the band. Paul McCartney was an early fan, but for the general public, Jamerson was not a household name for decades--Motown never listed the Wrecking Crew in its credits--until much l...

His claims to fame include The Art of Computer Programming, an ongoing multi-volume series of books whose publication began more than fifty years ago, and the digital typesetting system TeX, which, in a recent profile of Knuth, t...

Watch Dziga Vertov’s A Man with a Movie Camera, the 8th Best Film Ever Made

Of all the cinematic trailblazers to emerge during the early years of the Soviet Union – Sergei Eisenstein , Vsevolod Pudovkin , Lev Kuleshov – Dziga Vertov (né Denis Arkadievitch Kaufman, 1896–1954) was the most radical. Whereas Eisenstein – as seen in that film school standard Battleship Potemkin – used montage editing to create new ways of telling a story, Vertov dispensed with story altogether. He loathed fiction films. “The film drama is the Opium of the people,” he wrote. “Down wi...
