How The Houston Symphony Returned To The Stage For Live Performances

To be honest, part of the reason this could even be tried was that the governor of Texas didn’t institute a wide lockdown. That said, the symphony, which resumed weekly live concerts in July, consulted researchers from Rice to figure out where “microparticles” from musicians go within the symphony hall, and to institute better ventilation and filtration systems. (But the concerts have a livestreaming option for audience members who are not persuaded.) – Houston Chronicle

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...

Ben Rice ‘The Getaway’

Brooklyn based producer and songwriter Ben Rice releases his new single “The Getaway”. With a first listen, he sounds like a modern day Tom Petty, gifted with a captivating vocal, that can make any song sound good. Of course, Ben is no stranger to success and he isn’t a new artist per say. He has produced artists from The Skins to The Candles feat. Norah Jones, and fronted the wildly popular Surefire and Blackbells. Still, there is a generation that has never heard of him. Although Rice is very...

The Hair-Care Trick We Wish We'd Tried Sooner

Multi-masking is a total game-changer for any skin-care routine, but at this point, the concept is nothing new; we've been putting oil-absorbing clay formulas on our acne-prone T-zones and soothing gels on our dry, flaky cheeks for a while now, and our skin has never been happier. But for our hair? Now that's something new — and now that we've finally figured it out, we wish we'd started sooner.With bespoke beauty gaining momentum, it makes perfect sense that now would be the time to start appr...

Oregon Just Took A Big Step To Protect Transgender Rights

On Wednesday, Oregon governor Kate Brown signed a bill that will make it easier for transgender Oregonians to update their birth certificates privately. The Associated Press reports that the measure, which goes into effect next year, effectively allows an easier pathway for people to shield any changes they make to their birth certificates.Previously, the process to make changes to one's birth certificate was conducted through the court system, without much privacy for individuals. The new law,...

Rick Wakeman’s Prog-Rock Opera Adaptation of George Orwell’s 1984

We’ve seen sales of George Orwell’s dystopian nightmare scenario 1984 peak in recent months. Millions of readers seek to understand the brave new world we live in through Orwell’s vision. Parallels abound. We might reasonably ascribe to the ruling party in the U.S. and its media apparatus the slogan “IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.” But our experience of reality never fails to validate that old saw about truth and fiction. As Case Western Reserve professor of history John Broich writes, “2017 is ...

5 Rice Recipes From Around The World

What is cheap, can be bought in bulk, AND survive on your pantry shelves for what seems like an eternity (and a half)? Rice. But with trendier quinoa and farro constantly seeming to steal the scene, this versatile grain can tend to get pushed out of the recipe spotlight — and unfairly so! Rice is our OG, steadfast, grain of choice. It translates across meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), flavor profiles (savory and sweet), and cultures. And it does so with some serious style.Don't believe us?...

From "The World's Best Hoodie" Brand Comes Its Attempt At The Perfect Legging

Blame it on athleisure. Or maybe it's just our very basic, very lazy subconscious desire to avoid "real" pants whenever possible (and sometimes get away with it). Whatever the reason, the leggings market certainly isn't lacking for options these days. Sportswear heavyweights have luxed up with fashion-y collaborators (think Alexander Wang and Olivier Rousteing), while other designers, like Tory Burch, have launched entire standalone athletic lines. Mass retailers like Gap Inc.'s Athleta are thr...

Police Officer Acquitted of Freddie Gray’s Murder Expected to Receive $127K in Back Pay

I guess it pays to take a black life. The highest-ranking officer acquitted in the Freddie Gray case will reportedly receive a six-figure sum in back pay. Baltimore’s Board of Estimates will consider paying Lt. Brian Rice $126,916, which would be the amount he would have earned from the period of May 1, 2015 through July 18, 2016. The amount could be protested, however, this is highly unlikely. Rice, along with three other officers originally charged with Gray’s death, was suspended without pay....
