Instagram pie art: Tips, tricks and Thanksgiving recipes from social media’s best pie artists

On a recent trip to Brooklyn, pie artist and Instagram sensation Helen Nugent spotted something inspiring. It wasn’t a whimsically-shaped cronut or trendy new pizza she saw in a restaurant window, but the mesmerizing designs of the sidewalk sewer grates. “They had this beautiful Art Deco quality to them and I thought, ‘That would make a great pie,’” says Nugent, founder of Pie-Eyed Girl and the popular Instagram @batterednbaked. “Inspiration can come from almost anywhere.” Gardens. Forests. Mosa...

Election Day was largely free from disruptive cyberattacks, as efforts shift to combating misinformation

Polls closed in the U.S. presidential election on Tuesday without any significant or disruptive cyberattacks, according to cybersecurity officials and experts. Election Day wasn’t without its problems. Some voting machines in Nevada and Texas went down but were quickly back up and running, some voters in Georgia and Ohio had to use paper ballots after hand sanitizer leaked into the machines and the FBI said it was aware of robocalls urging Americans in swing states to “stay safe and stay home.” ...

Close US election results plunge social media into nightmare misinformation scenario

When Trump spoke early Wednesday morning, it became clear which long-dreaded election scenario an anxious nation was on the cusp of. “This is a fraud on the American public,” Trump said in remarks delivered from the White House, mixing his campaign with the presidency. “We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we did win this election.” Trump’s claim of victory is false — votes are still being counted in a close race — but they heralded his campaign’s intention to work the misinforma...

Creating Presentation Backgrounds With Your Phone

We’ve all seen the tired PowerPoint backgrounds that are overused or outdated. They are a dime-a-dozen.  But when you present, you don’t want your presentation to look like everyone else’s; you want it to stand out. And that starts with the foundation of creating a great background. Design giant Canva says, “The background you choose can dramatically change your design and make your graphics feel complete.” But you don’t have to spend a fortune to buy stock or professional photos. With just a sm...

"Don’t set your mind on things you don’t possess as if they were yours, but count the blessings you actually possess and think how much you would desire them..."

"... if they weren’t already yours. But watch yourself, that you don’t value these things to the point of being troubled if you should lose them."  Wrote Marcus Aurelius, quoted in "The Daily Stoic," an audiobook accompanying me as I take a walk — away from all TV sets and computers.  We're having a frabjous Indian Summer right now here in Wisconsin, USA.

Most of us do not, today, live in desperate need of maps. On the internet we can easily find not only the current maps we need to navigate most any territory on Earth, but also an increasing proportion of all the maps made before as well. You can find the latter in places like the David Rumsey Map Collection, which, as we wrote last year here on Open Culture, now boasts 91,000 historic maps free to download.  It will surely add even more, as humanity seems to have only just begun digitizing its...
