This mostly free festival will bring comic book and cartoon stars to Huntington Beach

Cartoonist Steve McGarry says that whenever he runs into people who insist they have no interest in the world of cartoons he likes to prove them wrong. “I don’t care who you are,” says McGarry, the president of the National Cartoonists Society Foundation, which will debut the inaugural NCS Fest in Huntington Beach this weekend. “I can pinpoint exactly in your life where cartoons changed your life.” Maybe you learned to read from the comic strips in the morning newspaper, McGarry says.

Kitchen of the Week: A Dog House Steals the Show in a Studio AC Design, Ikea Cabinets Included

Here’s proof that a single detail can elevate a design from nice to newsworthy. The transformative feature came from a line in the clients’ brief asking architects Studio AC of Toronto to see if they could find a place for a dog bed in their new kitchen. Given that space was at a premium, “it wasn’t an insignificant request,” note the architects (AC stands for Architecture and Collaboration). The solution they came up with makes use of a central, multipurpose geometric volume and Ikea cabinets c...

Upstairs, Downstairs: A London Home Designed for Two Households

We recently spotted a thoughtfully renovated London townhouse, designed by architect Michela Bertolini, that can accommodate two households. The building spans five levels and has 2,320 square feet of total living space. A central stairwell connects the floors; the upper and lower apartments are open to each other, but each is designed to function separately and privately if desired. This home, on St. Michael’s Road in London, is currently for sale on The Modern House. Have a look—and tell us wh...

How Tony Blair’s special advisers changed government

Tony Blair is one of the great conundrums of our time. We all know his legacy, from the widely-condemned invasion of Iraq to bequeathing a great National Health Service to the United Kingdom. But how he governed, how decisions were made, is still hotly debated. Was he radical, was he “unconstitutional”?Public service reform, from foundation hospitals to academy schools, under Blair was vast, all with the backing of massive financial investment and spending. But his reform of the Civil Service wa...

‘Zucked’ shows how a mentor of Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg is now one of the social network’s biggest critics

As a tech venture capitalist and early mentor of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Roger McNamee might be the least likely prophet to wander out of Silicon Valley with warnings of the dangers posed by the social network to those who use it. But that’s exactly where McNamee finds himself today, three years after he first started to seriously worry that Facebook, in its galloping growth to more than 2 billion users – and a current value of more than $400 billion – had gone astray in ways that thre...

The Treaty of Versailles: A Very Short Introduction

National self-determination was supposed to be the answer to the so-called “ethnic problem” of the 19th century. The prewar, multi-ethnic Russian, German, and Austro-Hungarian empires, all on the wrong side of history, had disappeared at the end of the First World War never to return. In their place would come relatively homogenous nation-states that would, in theory, reduce the ethnic tension that had undermined the stability of Central Europe and the Balkans. Once each nation possessed its own...

Books - The Square and The Tower by Niall Ferguson

Two organizing ideas about how society is organized can be described as hierarchies and networks. Both have existed throughout human history.  Understanding social organization is important because the structures and dynamics of the ways of organizing social life at a marcosystemic level influence behavior at the microsystemic level. Most of the macrosystemic organizing structures and dynamics are unconscious and as such, people don't understand why they think what they think, why they fee...
