“Manuscripts are the most important medium writing has ever had,” declares the Centre for the Study of Manuscript Cultures at the Universität Hamburg. Under the influence of a certain presentist bias, this can be hard to believe.

Southern California’s ICU capacity falls to 0%, an alarming sign amid deepening coronavirus surge

Southern California’s intensive-care unit bed capacity fell to 0% on Thursday, Dec. 17, an alarming nadir for the region’s healthcare system — though one that had seem like an inevitability for more than a week as the worsening coronavirus surge sapped available ICU beds daily. Thursday’s decline from 0.5% the day before was the 10th consecutive day available ICU bed capacity dropped. The metric, which state officials update daily, has become the critical marker in the fight against the coronavi...

Discover the Ambient Music of Hiroshi Yoshimura, the Pioneering Japanese Composer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D7aYjRl_6Zw The history of ambient music is a difficult story to tell in the same way we tell other histories, namely by reference to great men and women and the movements they inspired.
