Investors under age 59½ can make IRA early withdrawals without incurring the usual penalty, under certain situations and for particular expenses. Tijana Simic/Getty Images The IRS allows penalty-free early withdrawals from traditional IRAs in certain circumstances, called hardship provisions. Hardship provisions spare you the 10% penalty, but not taxes, on the withdrawn sum. IRA early withdrawals that can be penalty-free include expenses for healthcare, college, childbirth, and a first hom...

CDC says it’s safe to reopen schools, even without vaccinating teachers

By COLLIN BINKLEY and MIKE STOBBE | Associated Press The nation’s top public health agency said Friday that in-person schooling can resume safely with masks, social distancing and other strategies, but vaccination of teachers, while important, is not a prerequisite for reopening. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released its long-awaited road map for getting students back to classrooms in the middle of a pandemic. But its guidance is just that — the agency cannot force schools to r...

Who wouldn’t love to take a road trip with beloved cartoonist and educator Lynda Barry? As evidenced by Grandma’s Way Out Party, above, an early-90s documentary made for Twin Cities Public Television, Barry not only finds the humor in every situation, she’s always up for a detour, whether to a time honored destination like Mount Rushmore or Old Faithful, or a more impulsive pitstop, like a Washington state car repair shop decorated with sculptures made from cast off mufflers or the Montana State...

Watch “The Stroke,” a Hand-Animated Music Video Where the Visuals Came First & the Improvised Music Second

The idea of a film score seems clear enough. Writers, directors, and editors make a visual story, then composers enhance it with songs, cues, and themes. But things are never so straightforward in practice. Music is always a part of the process, whether in the screenwriter’s choice of accompaniment (Tarantino chooses film music as soon as he has an idea for a film), the director’s mood during filming, or the “temp score” editors use.
