Superintendents from urban districts critical of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s school reopening plan

Several superintendents representing some of the state’s largest urban school districts are criticizing Gov. Gavin Newsom’s school reopening plan, saying it likely would benefit students from more affluent districts while low-income children in communities hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic remain in distance learning. In a seven-page letter dated Wednesday, Jan. 6, school chiefs from Los Angeles, San Diego, Fresno, Long Beach, San Francisco, Oakland and Sacramento called Newsom’s proposal ...

As Los Angeles County lost another 258 lives to coronavirus — one of the highest single-day totals of the pandemic — health officials pleaded on Wednesday, Jan. 6, with residents not to sign up for a vaccine appointment meant for healthcare workers. “Please do not sign up for an appointment if you’re not an eligible frontline healthcare worker,” said Barbara Ferrer, the public health director, acknowledging that some people have been inoculated inappropriately because they were not asked for ver...

Aggregate Advertising Expenditure in the US Economy: What's Up? Is It Real?

We analyze total United States advertising spending from 1960 to 2018. In nominal terms, the elasticity of annual advertising outlays with respect to gross domestic product appears to have increased substantially beginning in the late 1990s, roughly coinciding with the dramatic growth of internet-based advertising.

The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam Has Digitized 709,000 Works of Art, Including Famous Works by Rembrandt and Vermeer

Art may seem inessential to those who make the big decisions in times of crisis. But it has never seemed more necessary to artists working in the time of COVID. So it was 360 years ago when Rembrandt painted a portrait of his son, Titus, in a monk’s robe in 1660. Eight years later, Titus was dead from plague, which had only a few years earlier killed Hendrickje Stoffels, Rembrandt’s former housekeeper and second wife, who helped raise Titus, Rembrandt’s only child to survive into adulthood. The...

How Tibetan Monks Use Meditation to Raise Their Peripheral Body Temperature 16-17 Degrees

Tibetan monks in remote regions of the Himalayas have long claimed near miraculous powers through yogic practices that resemble nothing you’ll find offered at your local gym, though they may derive from some similar Indian sources. One such meditative practice, a breathing exercise known as tummo, tum-mo, or g-tummo, supposedly generates body heat and can raise one’s peripheral body temperature 16-17 degrees—a distinctly advantageous ability when sitting outside in the snow-capped mountains...

Animation Pioneer Lotte Reiniger Adapts Mozart’s The Magic Flute into an All-Silhouette Short Film (1935)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4uUchB429M When Lotte Reiniger began making animation in the late 1910s, her work looked like nothing that had ever been shot on film. In fact, it also resembles nothing else achieved in the realm of cinema in the century since. Even the enormously budgeted and staffed productions of major studios have yet to replicate the stark, quavering charm of her silhouette animations. Those studios do know full well, however, what Reiniger realized long before: tha...
