Why Putin Wants Alexei Navalny Dead

From Vox: “In 2006, a lawyer named Alexei Navalny started a blog where he wrote about corruption in his home country of Russia. It’s the most prominent problem under the regime of Vladimir Putin, who has ruled Russia since 2000. Putin has systematically taken over the country’s independent media, oligarchy, elections, and laws to cement his own power and wield corruption to his advantage. That’s what Navalny set out to expose. And in 2010, he published a groundbreaking investigation into...

LA City Council will boost unarmed crisis response, universal basic income to reinvest LAPD dollars

In December, Mayor Eric Garcetti took the unusual step of vetoing a City Council plan for reinvesting Los Angeles police department dollars into communities of color. Garcetti said he would be happy to sign off on a revised proposal that included some changes, including the creation of an unarmed crisis response program to respond to 911 calls, especially when it involves someone experiencing a mental health episode. The mayor will get that chance on Tuesday, March 2. A revamped spending plan sh...

Email is Making Us Miserable

On Friday, the New Yorker ran an excerpt from the second chapter of my new book, A World Without Email. This chapter focuses on an aspect of the email revolution that’s often overlooked in our discussion of this tool: the ways in which it makes us miserable. I open the piece by reviewing studies that quantify what many of us have learned through personal experience, which is that the more time we spend emailing, the less happy and more stressed we become. As I then elaborate: “Given these stake...

The Exquisite, Ephemeral Paper Cuttings of Hans Christian Andersen

Quick, name a melancholy Dane. For most of us, the choice comes down to Hamlet or Hans Christian Andersen, author of such bittersweet tales as “The Little Match Girl,” “The Steadfast Tin Soldier,” and “The Little Mermaid.” Andersen’s personal life remains a matter of both speculation and fascination. Was he gay? Asexual? A virgin with a propensity for massive crushes on unattainable women, who engaged prostitutes solely for conversation? No one can say for sure. What we know definitively is...

Women Entrepreneurs Scale Up Through Global Growth

Just like Women Entrepreneurs Grow Global®, the Canadian federal government’s Women Entrepreneurship Strategy (WES) helps women entrepreneurs expand into global markets.  While wegg® was launched in 2015, WES was launched in 2018.  Since then, the Canadian government has almost doubled its investment to nearly $5 billion during the COVID-19 pandemic to help women-led businesses.

Hear Brian Eno Reinvent Pachelbel’s Canon (1975)

Discreet Music came out in 1975, when most of its first listeners had never heard anything quite like it; there must have been some debate as to whether to call it “music” at all. Brian Eno’s fourth solo album, released on his own label Obscure Records, represented a departure from his own previous work, and even more so from that of his former band, the art-rock outfit Roxy Music. The recording that occupies the entire A side of Discreet Music features no vocals, and indeed no lyrics; n...
