Google Is Shuttering the Expeditions App, but Its VR Field Trips Aren't Going Away For Good

Another one of Google’s virtual reality ventures is biting the dust. The company says it’s ending support for its VR educational app, Expeditions, next year, though it’ll fare far better than Google’s shuttered Daydream VR platform. Instead of discontinuing Expeditions completely, Google’s folding many of the app’s…Read more...

Los Angeles County continued its surge of COVID-19 cases on Friday, Nov. 13, reporting 2,481 new infections and issuing a desperate plea for residents to rethink their holiday plans if they intend to travel or hold a large gathering for Thanksgiving.

The Five Minute Museum: A Stop Motion Animation Shows the History of Civilization at Breakneck Speed

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQV-0nbAFjE Experimental director and animator Paul Bush‘s 2015 short film The Five-Minute Museum, above, is the dizzying antidote to standing, footsore, in front of a vitrine crowded with  or exquisitely crafted pocket watches and wondering, not about history, culture or the nature of time, but whether you can justify spending $15 for an underwhelming cheese and tomato sandwich in the museum cafe. It’s a breakneck stop motion journey through the history ...

Wait continues for new guidance on high school competition as state warns against travel for youth sports

The head of California’s Health and Human Services Agency hasn’t offer yet promised new guidance for high school and youth sports competition, but he did deliver a message Friday, Nov. 13, for athletes and families traveling out of state for games. California joined forces with Washington and Oregon on Friday to urge against travel and to recommend visitors or those returning home from travel outside these states to self-quarantine for 14 days to slow the spread of the coronavirus. The advisory ...

The European Commission’s Sustainable Corporate Governance Report: A Critique

The European Commission commissioned a report on sustainable corporate governance that purports to find serious problems of corporate short-termism. The report is wholly flawed: it conflates time horizon problems with externality problems, mismeasures investment and its financing, and proposes ineffective, possibly harmful reforms.

Expanding Google Arts & Culture with Expeditions

When I first joined Google 13 years ago, I was most excited by the company's sense of exploration and possibility. Search allowed you to look up nearly any fact in the world and Maps helped you find even the most remote destination. That spirit of possibility also led to the launch of Google Expeditions, a virtual reality (VR) tool designed to bring the world into every classroom. With this product, educators took students on new adventures to experience far-away places, travel back in time or l...

Experience a Video Painting of Brian Eno’s Thursday Evening That Has Soothed & Relaxed Millions of People

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggLTPyRXUKc Brian Eno may not have invented ambient music, but he did give it a name. What better to call an album like his 1978 Music for Airports, whose slowly shifting pieces forego not just melody but all then-accepted methods of composition and performance? The result, as its title suggests, is meant not to occupy the intention of the listener but to color the atmosphere of a space. This marked one evolutionary step for an idea Eno first essayed in 19...

How Akira Kurosawa Used Movement to Tell His Stories: A Video Essay

The history books say that there were three Japanese filmmakers to emerge in the 1950s – Kenji Mizoguchi, Yasujiro Ozu and Akira Kurosawa. Never mind that Mizoguchi and Ozu made many of their best movies in the 1930s. Never mind that masterful, innovative directors like Mikio Naruse and Keisuke Kinoshita have been unfairly overshadowed by the brilliance of these three greats. Mizoguchi was an early modernist who by the end of his career made meditative movies about how women suffer at the h...
