One of Mark Zuckerberg's key lieutenants is returning to Facebook, shaking up the company at a pivotal time

Former top Facebook executive Chris Cox is rejoining the company as chief product officer, a year after leaving. His rejoining means a shake-up at the company's upper ranks, with multiple top executives now reporting to him instead of Mark Zuckerberg. Facebook has faced an employee revolt in recent weeks, and the return of the well-liked executive may help to quell it. Cox has also been openly critical of Donald Trump, and his rehiring may intensify conservative criticisms of the social networ...

A Tokyo playground squeak consultant?

What this local government employee’s official job title is remains a mystery. Is he a squeak consultant, specialist or even a connoisseur? But whatever it is that’s written on his business card, there can’t be many better jobs than cycling round the city, trying out all the swings, then rather precariously de-squeaking any that aren’t perfectly smooth and silent.

It is part of a school now. I’m not happy with the puddles and streams of urine in front ho...

What does a bird symbolize?

Sunrise, captured at its predictable time — it was 5:19 — with the sudden appearance of a bird. Seeing it only now, as I process this morning's photographs, I wonder what does a bird symbolize?The internet answers most simplistically: Freedom! Which cues "Ballad in Plain D"...Ah, my friends from the prison, they ask unto me“How good, how good does it feel to be free?”And I answer them most mysteriously“Are birds free from the chains of the skyway?ADDED: I have made a study of the birds of the ...

A Rare Smile Captured in a 19th Century Photograph

Just look at this photo. Just look at this young girl’s smile. We know her name: O-o-dee. And we know that she was a member of the Kiowa tribe in the Oklahoma Territory. And we know that the photo was taken in 1894. But that smile is like a time machine. O-o-dee might just as well have donned some traditional/historical garb, posed for her friends, and had them put on the ol’ sepia filter on her camera app. But why? What is it about the smile? For one thing, we are not used to seeing them in ol...
