Garcetti vetoes, sends back LA City Council’s spending plan for reimagining public safety

Mayor Eric Garcetti has vetoed the Los Angeles City Council’s plan for how to reinvest funding from the Los Angeles Police Department into Black communities and other groups experiencing racial inequities, declaring that the proposals fell short of “the call of history.” The council approved a $150 million reduction to the proposed police department budget earlier this year, spurred by the protests against police brutality that swept the nation months — including Los Angeles. The cut represented...

To win post-pandemic, edtech needs to start thinking big

The edtech market raked in more than $10 billion in venture capital investment globally in 2020, but for students, parents and teachers, the year was defined more by its scramble than its surge. Nandini Talwar, a student and teacher’s assistant at Columbia University, wants to hold more efficient office hours so students don’t have to wait on a Zoom call. TraLiza King, a director at PWC and single mother, needs a Zoom alternative for her 4-year-old, who is too young to understand how to mute and...

Peter Jackson Gives Us an Enticing Sneak Peek of His Upcoming Beatles Documentary The Beatles: Get Back

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UocEGvQ10OE The legendary acrimony of the Beatles’ break-up comes through in Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s 1970 film Let it Be, which documents the recording of their last studio album and their famous rooftop sendoff concert, joined by keyboardist Billy Preston.

Why David Sedaris Hates “The Santaland Diaries,” the NPR Piece that Made Him Famous

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u5XLjG_S6eE This past fall David Sedaris published his first full-fledged anthology, The Best of Me. It includes “Six to Eight Black Men,” his story about bewildering encounters with European Christmas folktales, but not “The Santaland Diaries,” which launched him straight into popular culture when he read it aloud on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition in 1992. True to its title, that piece is drawn from entries in his diary (the rigorous keeping of w...

The UN’s World Happiness Report Ranks “Socialist Friendly” Countries like Finland, Norway, Denmark, Iceland & Sweden as Among the Happiest in the World

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3vsGlAvr04 One of the most pernicious, “dangerous, anti-human and soul-crushing” myths in the business world, writes Liz Ryan at Forbes, is the “idiotic nostrum” that has also crept into government and charitable work: “If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it.” The received wisdom is sometimes phrased more cynically as “if you can’t measure it, it didn’t happen,” or more positively as “if you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.” But “the importan...
