Long before public health officials announced this week that elementary schools in Los Angeles County can finally reopen because the county’s daily rate of new COVID-19 cases has fallen low enough to meet reopening standards, officials in the Los Angeles Unified School District had submitted its plan for bringing students back to campus to the state and county. And it’s already prepared its schools for the eventual return of students and staff by purchasing personal protective equipment, install...

For a family devastated by COVID-19, Mariachi serenade provides a moment of hope

Patty Trejo wanted some way to let her husband, Joe Trejo, know that she’s with him even as he breathes through a ventilator. So she turned to music. Trejo hired a mariachi band to serenade him outside Providence St. Jude Medical Center in Fullerton.  And on Monday, Feb. 15, inside his room in the hospital’s intensive care unit, their song “La Mano de Dios” (The Hand of God) was streamed live via a cell phone. Joe Trejo, in a medically induced coma as he struggles with COVID-19, heard the song, ...

Paul Simon Tells the Story of How He Wrote “Bridge Over Troubled Water” (1970)

It takes a certain amount of hubris to write a song like “Bridge Over Troubled Water”—to write, that is, a secular hymn, a non-religious gospel hit for burned-out sixties’ folkies. Maybe only a tragic flaw could inspire a composer “coming off the back of four hit albums and two number one singles in four years” to soothe the disaffection of down-and-out Americans who could see the bottom from where they stood in 1969, a year notorious for its cultural disaffection and political gloom. Pa...

Alfred Hitchcock Meets Jorge Luis Borges Borges in Cold War America: Watch Double Take (2009) Free Online

In 1962, while shooting The Birds, Alfred Hitchcock gets a phone call. Or rather, he’s informed of a phone call, but when he makes his way off set he finds not a call but a real live caller, and a thoroughly unexpected one at that: himself, eighteen years older. Beneath this encounter — in a room the London-born, Los Angeles-resident Hitchcock recognizes as a hybrid of Chasen‘s and Claridge‘s — runs a current of existential tension. This owes not just to the imaginable reasons, but also to ...

Slow responses more likely to be perceived as lies, study finds

Research could have implications for scenarios from job interviews to court trials, say psychologistsThe longer a person takes to respond to a question the more likely it is they will be perceived as lying – whether it is a question about a crime or a friend’s baking skills. Beyond volume, tenor and the pitch of an answer, response time also appears to play a role in the way people perceive the sincerity of answers, psychologists have found. Continue reading...

Archaeologists Find the Earliest Work of “Abstract Art,” Dating Back 73,000 Years

Image by C. Foster Art, as we understand the term, is an activity unique to homo sapiens and perhaps some of our early hominid cousins. This much we know. But the matter of when early humans began making art is less certain. Until recently, it was thought that the earliest prehistoric art dated back some 40,000 years, to cave drawings found in Indonesia and Spain. Not coincidentally, this is also when archaeologists believed early humans mastered symbolic thought. New finds, however, have shift...
