The impact of COVID-19 on our students has been extensive and has already trickled into the summer months as many camps have been canceled. “ A lot of young people have been out of school for two months and that going into the summer I think is creating more and more issues for families,” Shaun McAlmount, President Career Learning Soluti...

June’s Desktop Calendar & Thoughts on the Golden Rule

A few years ago we planted two magnolia trees, one on each side of our front yard. I remember the large magnolia whose branches hung low over the wooden fence of my childhood home and how people sometimes knocked at our door and asked to cut a few blooms for a wedding. I wanted some of that lemon-sweet southern comfort at this home too, where we’ve lived for almost 15 years. The tree on the east side of our yard has grown tall and fair, with fragrant blooms from top to bottom. The one on...

On Running an Office Like a Factory

I was recently browsing the archives of the MIT Sloan Management Review (as one does), when I came across a fascinating article from the Fall 2018 issue titled “Breaking Logjams in Knowledge Work.” The piece starts with a blunt observation: “If you work in an organization, you know what it’s like to have too much to do and not enough resources to do it.” This is not accidental: “…many leaders continue to believe that their organizations thrive when overloaded, often both creating pressure and r...

Watch Martin Scorsese’s Brand New Short Film, Made Entirely in His Office Under Quarantine

Most who saw the last feature by Martin Scorsese, 2019's The Irishman, saw it at home. That had to do with the fact that the budget came from Netflix, which surely aimed to get its not inconsiderable money's worth by offering the film on its own streaming service as soon as possible. If The Irishman's financing and distribution was a sign of the times, Scorsese's new short is even more so: shot on a smartphone by the famed director himself, it recently premiered on Mary Beard's BBC speci...

Spike Lee Debuts the Short Film “3 Brothers”: A Remake of Do the Right Thing for Our Dark Times

When beloved actor Bill Nunn died in September of 2016, two months before the election, his passing felt prophetic of more bad things to come. Best known as the boombox-toting, ultimate Public Enemy fan Radio Raheem in Spike Lee’s 1989 film Do the Right Thing, Nunn’s character is murdered by a gang of cops, who put him in a chokehold and suffocate him. At the time, Raheem’s death was a fictional restatement of what had come before, as Lee explains above in the 30th anniversary commentary...

Why Should We Read Melville’s Moby-Dick? A TED-Ed Animation Makes the Case

Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick is a major 19th epic and a “Great American Novel” that routinely appears on best-of-all-time lists next to Homer and Dante. This grand literary judgment descends from early 20th century critics who rescued the novel from obscurity after decades of scorn and neglect. When the book first appeared in 1851, no one knew what to make of Melville’s cosmic whaling revenge tale. Reviews were highly mixed, sales dismal, the book flopped. This Moby-Dick revival happened ...
