Why Schools Should Be the Center of a Green New Deal

One of the main things Terriq Thompson remembers about Benjamin Franklin High School, where he graduated in 2019, is that it was hot. In particular, he remembers his first day of his senior year. It was an unusually warm September, and that day, it was 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32.2 degrees Celsius) out. But inside, he…Read more...

How Bob Marley Came to Make Exodus, His Transcendent Album, After Surviving an Assassination Attempt in 1976

“The people who are trying to make this world worse aren’t taking a day off. How can I?,” said Bob Marley after a 1976 assassination attempt at his home in Jamaica in which Marley, his wife Rita, manager Don Taylor, and employee Louis Griffiths were all shot and, incredibly, all survived. Which people, exactly, did he mean? Was it Edward Seaga’s Jamaican Labour Party, whose hired gunmen supposedly carried out the attack? Was it, as some even conspiratorially alleged, Michael Manley’s Peo...

Watch the Trippy 1970s Animated Film Quasi at the Quackadero: Voted One of the 50 Greatest Cartoons of All Time

There certainly are a lot of weirdos out today. —Quasi at the Quackadero Animation is a profession wherein childhood influences hold visible sway. Today’s young animators are likely to cite the formative powers of Spongebob Squarepants, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Ren & Stimpy Show, and the films of Japanese master, Hayao Miyazaki. As a child of the 50s, Sally Cruikshank, creator of cult favorite Quasi at the Quackadero, above, marinated in Carl Barks’ Donald Duck comics. In The Anim...

How the Internet Archive Digitizes 3,500 Books a Day–the Hard Way, One Page at a Time

Does turning the pages of an old book excite you? How about 3 million pages? That’s how many pages Eliza Zhang has scanned over her ten years with the Internet Archive, using Scribe, a specialized scanning machine invented by Archive engineers over 15 years ago. “Listening to 70s and 80s R&B while she works,” Wendy Hanamura writes at the Internet Archive blog, “Eliza spends a little time each day reading the dozens of books she handles.

Time/NextAdvisor: Know Reverse Mortgage Pros and Cons Before Getting One

A senior considering a reverse mortgage loan should consider all the potential risks and rewards in equal measure before deciding whether or not to get such a loan. This is according to a new column by personal finance columnist Joe Cortez at NextAdvisor, as published by Time. “Fear of COVID infection at nursing home facilities has many senior Americans, and their families, evaluating other options, Cortez writes. “As of February 2021, more than a third of the country’s COVID-related deaths o...

Advent Plans in my Bullet Journal + 2021 Planner News!

Hello my friends, how are you?! I hope you are all staying healthy and safe. My family and I are all doing fine - though I cannot believe it has been more than two months since my last post! Time certainly flew by this fall ... but I'm happy to say that the eye strain, headaches and neck pain that kept me from spending long periods of time on my computer or working in my planners, these past several months seems to be finally subsiding.

When ABBA Wrote Music for the Cold War-Themed Musical, Chess: “One of the Best Rock Scores Ever Produced for the Theatre” (1984) Chess is amazing. The simplicity of its characters and plot (capture the king!) can be appreciated and understood by children; the complexity of its tactics can consume an adult life. Despite its medieval origins—and stumpers for us moderns like the strategic importance of a bishop on the battlefield—chess remains as much a potent allegory for power and its tactics as it was 1,500 years ago in India when it was called “chaturanga.”  The game ha...

11 real-life skills you can teach your kids at home during the pandemic

The 1937 Experiment in Distance Learning: When Chicago Schools Went Remote, Over Radio, During a Polio Outbreak

As all of us have noticed in recent months, living in a viral pandemic really messes with your sense of time. A few months feels like a decade. Time slows to a crawl. If you’re a parent, however, you have before you walking, talking, growing, complaining reminders that no matter what’s happening in the world, children still grow up just the same. They need new experiences and new clothes just as before, and they need to keep their brains engaged and try, at least, to build on prior knowledge. M...

Focus Week: Take Control of Your Time

In the first lesson of our Focus Week series, I suggested that you unplug to give your brain and emotions a breather in our current moment of constant, agitating distraction. In the second lesson, I suggested that you implement a daily deep reading habit to retrain your neural networks to sustain and find satisfaction in unbroken concentration. In this third and final lesson, I want to talk about how to leverage this newly reclaimed clarity to focus your life. At the heart of my advice is a sim...

Emma Willard, the First Woman Mapmaker in America, Creates Pioneering Maps of Time to Teach Students about Democracy (Circa 1851)

We all know Marshall McLuhan’s pithy, endlessly quotable line “the medium is the message,” but rarely do we stop to ask which one comes first. The development of communication technologies may genuinely present us with a chicken or egg scenario. After all, only a culture that already prized constant visual stimuli but grossly undervalued physical movement would have invented and adopted television. In Society of the Spectacle, Guy Debord ties the tendency toward passive visual consumption to “c...

Mark Knopfler Plays a Poignant, Overdriven Version of “The Last Post,” Remembering the Many Lives Lost in World War I

World War I symbolism gets lost on Americans. Our historical memories are short and selective, and the War has “largely vanished from view,” as historian Geoffrey Wawro writes at Time magazine. But in Europe, of course, where some armies suffered ten times the casualties as U.S. troops, and where millions of civilian died and towns were bombed into oblivion, the memory of the Great War is very much alive. In Ypres, Belgium, the War has been memorialized every day since 1928 (with the exc...

Email in the College Application Process

At the outset of the college search, application, and admission process, students will have a seemingly weird decision to make: how should students handle email in the college application process? First, some background. Email plays a very important role in the overall process. The adult world is still run on email, and this includes the world of colleges. Even though texting and other forms of direct messaging are the way that students and many adults manage their everyday lives, email conti...

Meet ‘The Afronauts’: An Introduction to Zambia’s Forgotten 1960s Space Program

Broadly speaking, the "Space Race" of the 1950s and 60s involved two major players, the United States and the Soviet Union. But there were also minor players: take, for instance, the Zambian Space Program, founded and administered by just one man. A Time magazine article published in November 1964 — when the Republic of Zambia was one week old — described Edward Mukuka Nkoloso as a "grade-school science teacher and the director of Zambia’s National Academy of Science, Space Research and ...

#BrainTime 2: Time will tell

Image from Pixabay In a recent post I discussed the strange experience of  déjà vu . As far as we know, it is exclusively a human experience. I explored the possible reasons we experience that eerie sense where we feel we have experienced something previously, when in fact the experience is quite new. I mentioned that as we get older, we tend to have less  déjà vu  events. Why is this? Thiss relevant to another fairly universal human experience.It's this: As we get older, time seems to ...

An Animated Look at the Charade of the Global Elites: Claiming They Want to “Change the World,” They End Up Preserving the Unjust Status Quo

From Peter Kropotkin to Leo Tolstoy to Noam Chomsky, some of the most revered anarchist thinkers have exhausted page after page explaining why power over others is unjustified, no matter how it justifies itself. To those who say the wealthy and powerful benefit society with charitable works and occasionally humane policy, Tolstoy might reply with the following illustration, which opens Time editor Anand Giridharadas’ talk above, “Winner Take All,” as animated by the RSA: I sit on a man’s...

How Art Nouveau Inspired the Psychedelic Designs of the 1960s

“In the late 1800’s new technology was changing the way the world worked, and the way that it looked,” the Vox video above explains. “Some people, especially artists, living through the technological revolution, were not so into all the new industry. To be blunt, they thought it was ugly.” They responded with organic forms and intricate patterns that evoked a pre-industrial world while simultaneously showcasing, and selling, the most modern ideas and products. Drawing on the handcrafted ...

H.G. Wells’ The War of the Worlds Becomes a New BBC Miniseries Set in Edwardian England

H.G. Wells began writing the novel that would become The War of the Worlds in the England of the mid-1890s. As a setting for this tale of invasion from outer space, he chose the place he knew best: England of the mid-1890s. Staging spectacles of unfathomable malice and fantastical destruction against such an ordinary backdrop made The War of the Worlds, first as a magazine serial and then as a standalone book, a chillingly compelling experience for its readers. Orson Welles understood th...

Are we wasting our time?

There's no such thing as down-time, or spare time. Only time. Time is finite, each day we are allocated exactly the same amount as everyone else, and how we use that time is our personal choice. So time is a precious resource, and what we do with our time determines the outcomes of our lives. Sobering stuff.I was therefore interested in a recent tweet from my friend and colleague Nick Shackleton-Jones on our use of time. Here's what he said: There is often an impression, especially from thos...

When John Waters Appeared on The Simpsons and Changed America’s LGBTQ Views (1997)

On the week where Alabama Public Television banned an episode of the kids’ cartoon Arnold for showing a gay wedding (just after banning abortion the week before), let’s go back to a time when the entire country needed a little bit of an education on homosexuality and used The Simpsons and a guest appearance by director John Waters to make the point. “Homer’s Phobia” premiered on February 16, 1997 in the show’s eighth season. Written by Ron Hauge, the episode casts Waters as J...

Free Time-Saving Tools for Students

Wow, modern life is demanding! We do so much more than previous generations. We don’t just study but have to work as well. And even then, we have to finish our studies in the blink of an eye – or end up deeply in debt if we don’t.

Digital Minimalism and Sports

Your browser does not support iframes. A couple weeks ago, I posted an article in reaction to the news that the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals now allows his players to take “phone breaks” during their team meetings. “You start to see kind of hands twitching and legs shaking, and you know they need to get that social media fix,” he helpfully explained. If you’re one of the many readers who joined me in thinking this move was a shortsighted capitulation, I’m hoping to help improve...
