Learn and play together as a family with Chromebook

The last few months have been an adventure for a lot of families like mine that are juggling work, parenting, and school at home. Our family Chromebook has been a huge help. Between video calls with teachers and classmates, virtual “field trips” to the zoo, moviemaking, and book publishing (and that’s just the last week!), my kids are spending more time online. With that comes some challenges, and I know I’m not alone. A lot of parents are looking for better tools to help them manage and guide t...

5 Most Expensive Purchases You Won’t Regret Making in 2020

Did you know that getting a typically expensive product on sale leads to a crazy dopamine spike in your brain? This, of course, explains why shopping is such an addictive venture. However, more and more people have started to question their spending habits and now make smarter choices on what to spend on. For instance, why buy a super expensive couch when you can cop a beautiful one in a thrift store for less? That said, there are some expensive purchases that you cannot compromise on. The...

3 bearish takes on the current edtech boom

Edtech is booming, but a short while ago, many companies in the category were struggling to break through as mainstream offerings. Now, it seems like everyone is clamoring to get into the next seed-stage startup that has the phrase “remote learning” on its About page. And so begins the normal cycle that occurs when a sector gets overheated — boom, bust and a reckoning. While we’re still in the early days of edtech’s revitalization, it isn’t a gold mine all around the world. Today, in the spirit...

50 Songs from a Single Year, Mixed Together Into One 3-Minute Song (1979-89)

The concept of generations, as we currently use the term, would have made no sense to people living throughout most of human history. “Before the 19th century,” writes Sarah Leskow at The Atlantic, “generations were thought of as (generally male) biological relationships within families—grandfathers, sons, grandchildren and so forth.” The word did not describe common traits shared by, “as one lexicographer put it in 1863, ‘all men living more or less at the same time.’” The theory was th...

How Humphrey Bogart Became an Icon: A Video Essay

According to film theorist David Bordwell, there was a major change in acting styles in the 1940s. Gone was the “behavioral acting” style of the 1930s (the first full decade of sound film), where mental states were demonstrated not just through the face, but through body movement, and how actors just held themselves. Instead, in the 1940s there is a “new interiority, a kind of neutralization, of the acting performance, that’s intense, almost silent film-style.” Part of this is due to inc...

Résumés and Relationships: Advice for New Graduates Hoping to Enter Public Relations

Albert Einstein Explains Why We Need to Read the Classics

Two pieces of reading advice I’ve carried throughout my life came from two early favorite writers, Herman Melville and C.S. Lewis. In one of the myriad pearls he tosses out as asides in his prose, Melville asks in Moby Dick, “why read widely when you can read deeply?” Why spread our minds thin? Rather than agonize over what we don’t know, we can dig into the relatively few things we do until we’ve mastered them, then move on to the next thing. Melville’s counsel may not suit every temperament, ...

Bridging The Digital Divide: State Leaders Working To Give Students Access To Computers, Internet

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Guidelines for California schools to reopen are expected in early June. State Superintendent Tony Thurmond gave an update Wednesday, saying limiting class sizes means some students will still be learning online. Now state leaders are looking to bridge the digital divide. They call it the digital divide because some students in the state still may not have access to their classes, missing things like Chromebooks or reliable internet access. On Wednesday, Superintendent Thurmo...

Is It Rude to Talk Over a Film? MST3K’s Mary Jo Pehl on Pretty Much Pop: A Culture Podcast #45

https://podtrac.com/pts/redirect.mp3/traffic.libsyn.com/secure/partiallyexaminedlife/PMP_045_5-14-20.mp3 We live in a commentary culture with much appreciation for camp and snark, but something special happened in the early '90s when Mystery Science Theater 3000 popularized this additive form of comedy, where jokes are made during a full-length or short film. Mary Jo Pehl was a writer and performer on MST3K and has since riffed with fellow MST3K alums for Rifftrax and Cinematic Titanic. Mark...
