「Eat, Drink, and Stand in Japan」featuring the tachinomiya Tenbun is the cover story for the print version of Anthropology News (November/December 2020)

Also available online: My text was severely edited (for brevity and to appeal to a wider audience I suppose) but I think the photos look great! I like the layout in the print version better.

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – In a letter penned to colleagues, Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday called President Trump a threat to Democracy and laid out the next steps in the House’s bid to impeach him following the riots at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. Pelosi said Majority Leader Hoyer “will request Unanimous Consent to bring up the [Congressman Jamie] Raskin resolution,” which calls on Vice President Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to declare Trump incapable of his presidential duties. In an ...

At the Bird's Nest Café...

  ... you can talk all night. Talk about whatever you like, especially stuff that doesn't fit in the various posts of the day, whatever they were. What could be talked about? I'm thinking... maybe you can offer some topics. See if you can get people to answer your questions. [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

A dated Tokyo laundrette and its old-style scissor gates

Over the last few years, there has been a shift in Tokyo towards laundrettes that are nice places to while away a bit of time rather than somewhere to simply do some washing. Many now incorporate cafes, come with free wifi, and even have comfy sofas as well as more conventional seating areas.

Chasing the Sunset

I love being out when the sun is setting and always hope I am in a good place for a photo. Near the bridge leading to the Eiffel tower. Further back. Not the best shot but it’s hard to beat the Eiffel Tower in a photo. The bridge is covered with the dreadful “love locks” as you can see. And after the sun set from our apartment.

Feast Your Eyes on New Photos of the 'Grand Canyon of Mars'

There’s still so much we don’t know about Mars, but thanks to some recently released photos, we’ve gotten a much better look at the Red Planet’s equivalent of the Grand Canyon. Although, that’s not exactly accurate: the one on Mars—called Valles Marineris—is nearly 10 times as long and three times as deep as ours on…Read more...

If Trump knew there was a plan to storm the Capitol building, then his speech to the crowd was an incitement, even though he never told the crowd to commit any act of violence.

2 days ago, I read Trump's speech looking for any language that could support the claim that he incited the crowd to storm the Capitol. I wrote a post listing the 7 most violence-inducing statements. They're about fighting and showing strength and never giving up, but they're all consistent with an idea of having a big, traditional street protest — with lots of people marching and displaying their passion for the cause through big numbers, determined-looking faces, and lots words on signs and in...
