Photo taken on Nov. 19, 2020 shows the empty playground of a public school in New York, the United States. Xinhua/Wang Ying via Getty Images A survey of 130 US mayors found that 45% expect to make or see serious cuts to public education spending due to the COVID-19 pandemic. An equal number expect cuts in parks and recreation, transportation budgets, and social services. The vast majority of mayors surveyed said the federal government's response to the pandemic was inadequate. Visit Busine...

Picturing the pandemic’s people: Photos capture the ‘still life’ we are all living

Innis Casey captured still life like no artist before — the kind of “safer at home” living that we’ve all been experiencing since the coronavirus outbreak jolted our daily routines. The photographer and his travel journalist sister teamed up during spring’s early days of the coronavirus shutdown and ensuing summer months to create a book of portraits they named, “Quartraits: Portrait of a Community Quarantine” set to be released next month. Casey, who grew up in Burbank and now lives in Valley V...

Rethinking the Internet, Again

In October, I wrote a blog post suggesting a framework for the social internet in which users own their own data, including social links, original content, and descriptions of their interests. In my proposal, social networks would compete to offer you the best experience using this common pool of information. If you don’t like how Instagram is observing your behavior to sell ads, for example, you can now turn to an alternative site that has access to the same pictures and social connections, an...

The Power of Empathy: A Quick Animated Lesson from Brené Brown

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Evwgu369Jw Several years back, the RSA (Royal Society of the Arts) created a series of distinctive animated shorts where well-known intellectuals presented big ideas, and a talented artist rapidly illustrated them on a whiteboard. Some of those talks featured the likes of Slavoj Zizek, Carol Dweck, Steven Pinker and Barbara Ehrenreich. Now RSA presents a video series created in an entirely different aesthetic. Above, you can watch the first of many “espre...

A 1913 Children’s Book Lampoons Duchamp, Picasso & Other Avant-Garde Artists: Read The Cubies’ ABC Online

Igor Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring premiered in 1913, and its violent break from musical and choreographic tradition, so the story goes, pushed the genteel Parisian audience to violent rebellion. That tale may have grown taller over the past century, but public distaste for then-novel trends in all forms of “modern art” has left a paper trail. Here we have a particularly amusing exhibit, and long an obscure one: The Cubies’ ABC, a picture book by a couple named Mary Mills and Earl Harvey Lyal...

When Sun Ra Went to Egypt in 1971: See Film & Hear Recordings from the Legendary Afrofuturist’s First Visit to Cairo

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DZXNe6Wuj0 Sun Ra died in 1993 (or he returned to his home planet of Saturn, one or the other). Twenty-seven years later his Arkestra is still going strong. “No group in jazz history has embodied the communal spirit like the Arkestra,” writes Peter Margasak at The Quietus. “Their hardcore fans are the closest thing jazz has to Deadheads.” We could further compare Sun Ra and Jerry Garcia as bandleaders—their embrace of extended free form playing against a ...
