Who is Test cricket’s greatest number eight? (Or: Which Test bowler was the best batsman?)

Specialist bowlers having to bat is one of the greatest things in the world because batting is absolutely nothing like bowling. It is like a javelin thrower training for years and years to perfect their art only to turn up at the Olympics and be told that they also have to play tennis. This is precisely why it’s interesting to ponder which bowler has been best at batting. We often talk about the top six in cricket. Whether or not these players do other things as well, the top six batsmen ar...

Finding Comfort in Predictions

On March 11 I wrote the following notes in my personal journal: The coronavirus is currently in outbreak mode around the world. There are 125,865 known infections worldwide, with almost 81K in China. In the USA there are already 1281 infections, 7 of them in Nevada. But that’s largely due to severe under-testing.I think the USA is in for a big reckoning, especially with Donald Trump being a complete idiot in his response to this, clearly caring more about the economy and his own self-interest...

Tarotscopes That Slay: New moon in Aries

I am writing this to you from my at-home sanctuary that my husband and I lovingly call the “spirit room”. It’s just the second bedroom in our tiny two-bedroom Los Angeles bungalow but it’s also a vortex for healing and love. I am gazing out the window at the bougainvillea in full bloom, creeping along the dark green fence that separates me from my neighbor. If I lean a little to the left I can see the giant cactus that I planted from a trimming my friend Michelle gave me years ago. The sky is a...

How Parsis shaped India’s taste for soft drinks

A bottle of Pallonji’s raspberry soda comes with this helpful disclaimer: “Contains no fruit.” Electric red in colour, and syrupy sweet to the taste, the raspberry soda is a beloved cultural icon of India’s fast-disappearing Parsi community – as well as the endangered Irani cafes in the western city of Mumbai. Article by Dinyar Patel | BBC It is pure, fizzy nostalgia. But peer more closely into one of Pallonji’s ancient glass bottles and you can discern a story of much greater significance: ho...

The Elephant and the Virus

With respect to the coronavirus pandemic, I am concerned about India. Given their population density and more than 1.3 billion residents, the virus situation there could soon make what’s happening in Italy and Spain look tame. Earlier this week India was reporting only 129 infections and 2 deaths. Today it’s at 249 cases and 5 deaths. While those numbers may seem ridiculously low relative to India’s population, they appear to be starting out much the same as any other country. While mathem...

The Lucky Charms of 7 Famous Men

Superstitions — beliefs that are neither directly religious nor logically sound — have surely been around since time immemorial. Humans have always sought to get the edge on the seemingly supernatural forces that govern fate — to ward off bad woo-woo and attract good luck. And while the idea that some cause can influence some entirely unrelated consequence isn’t based on reason, it does have its own sort of rationality: some research shows that superstitions can significantly improve one’s perf...

The T20 World Cup final will be decided by whether or not India can run “all across the ground”

India play Australia in the T20 World Cup final.

Podcast #588: The Audacious Command of Alexander the Great

Alexander the Great became king of Macedonia at age 19. By age 30 he controlled an empire that spanned from Greece to India. In the two thousand years after his early death, his influence has persisted. Military leaders from Caesar to Napoleon studied his campaigns and imitated his strategies and tactics, and without Alexander, the influence of Greek culture on the world wouldn’t have been the same.  My guest today has written a very readable, yet academically authoritative biography of this ...
