April linkfest

Journalist, novelist, and author Kurt Andersen (Spy magazine, Fantasyland, Evil Geniuses) wrote about “how an article about genomic sequencing led to an afternoon playing around with AI branding tools.” The names and logos these tools spat out—Dynester, Aerodynamiq, ModernZeal—led Andersen to muse about how real life is increasingly indistinguishable from science fiction. * Speaking of science fiction, here’s a list of fictional super-metals, from Adamantium to Zortium. * If you’re a fa...

Hot Seat: Jeff Immelt at GE

IN SEPTEMBER 2001, Jack Welch was a tough act to follow. The day after Jeffrey Immelt became CEO of General Electric, he had an even bigger challenge to deal with—the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Immelt states in Hot Seat: What I Learned Leading a Great American Company: The best leaders absorb fear. I’m not talking about soothing people by blowing smoke or giving false assurances. I’m talking about giving people the truth but also giving them a way forward. In the wake of 9/11, GE’s people needed t...

Comment on classic shortbread by Theresa

Yes, I got up and started making these as soon as I saw the Instagram story. Luckily the 3 ingredients were all on hand. I used ground star anise, cinnamon, and cardamom with a little grated ginger and vanilla extract for flavoring. It yielded a lovely spiced cookie. These were as easy as promised and delicious.

Violence Monopolist Madonna Unleashes Raving Inner Totalitarian

Is there a vaccination against whatever this … thing is spreading? (NRA Institute for Legislative Action/Facebook) U.S.A. – -( “Wake up, America,” Madonna demands on an Instagram video as she glues #GunControlNow hashtag posters to a wall. “In the name of the Revolution!” The ski mask to establish solidarity with “street justice warriors” and “oppressed” people of color is almost funny coming from someone oozing with “white privilege” and an estimated net worth of $850M.

3D Print 18,000 Famous Sculptures, Statues & Artworks: Rodin’s Thinker, Michelangelo’s David & More

Striking the Balance: Minimizing Your Risk When Defending Your Rights

Take Action Time to Act United States – -( If we were still in an America where norms and standards had not been destroyed by certain people in this country, this piece would not be necessary. But recent events highlight a long-term trend that Second Amendment supporters cannot ignore, especially in an age where blacklisting in the name of so-called “social justice” has made a comeback. In some ways, the fact the situation got this far represents a collective failure by the lead...

 FROM THE EMAIL: Timothy writes: Good morning Ann, I feel like saying, “Long-time listener, first-time caller” as is so often heard on a call-in radio show! I’m sure I probably commented once or twice over the past 15 years that I’ve read your blog, but I guess I’m moved this morning to e-mail you. Interestingly (to me, anyway!) is the thought that I likely would not have commented under the previous system, underneath the entry that caught my attention: your beautiful lilac photos.

The dawn/sunrise distinction — 6:01 and 6:05.

 The official sunrise time was 6:02. I love when the disc of the sun appears, but so often, like today, it's much more colorful when the sun shows itself indirectly. The line "it's always darkest just before dawn" came to mind. Clearly, it's not always darkest just before sunrise, but dawn and sunrise are not the same thing:Dawn is the time that marks the beginning of twilight before sunrise. It is recognized by the appearance of indirect sunlight being scattered in Earth's atmosphere, when...

Bright Spot: Vaisselle, a London-Born, Spanish-Made Ceramics Line, Created During Lockdown

Lately I have been finding myself drawn, against all odds, towards cheerful yellows and periwinkle blues, ginghams and Liberty florals—a deviation from my usual style that I suspect has something to do with the dreariness of the past year. Evidently I’m not the only one yearning for color these days. Recently, browsing through the online shop of English department store The Hambledon (whose owner’s family home we featured last fall), I stumbled upon Vaisselle, a line of brightly patterned vases,...

"Kubrick the nudnik is here again."

I'm reading "Kubrick’s Human Comedy/Though Stanley Kubrick was often characterized as icy, his life and filmography reveal that his heart was as large as his mind" (NYRB): When [his high school friend] asked Stanley why he didn’t do his own assignments, he got this placid reply: “I’m not interested.” What did interest him was the Graflex single-lens high-speed camera his father had given him for his thirteenth birthday, with which he learned to capture crisp images of subjects in motion. Soon he...
