Thoughts from Amalfi during Coronavirus

Over the past 13 years, I’ve written a lot about the Amalfi Coast. About beautiful beaches, about my favorite hikes through quiet villages, about food, about the people, and really most everything in between. Plot twist. So here I sit at my tiny desk inside our small house right in the historic center of Amalfi. Thankfully, I can see a few lemon trees and the bright bursts of purple as the bougainvillea in the neighbor’s garden starts to bloom. We have a little balcony off the bedroom that overl...

How USC football is continuing some workouts amid coronavirus quarantine

This wasn’t exactly the spring that USC football had in mind. The Trojans had just one spring practice, the beginning of implementing a new defense and a new physicality, before concerns about the spread of COVID-19 led to USC and the Pac-12 to suspend all team activities, including football practices, as part of social distancing. Now, most of the team has gone home for spring and is not allowed back on USC’s campus. So the Trojans have had to get creative with how they work out in quarantine. ...

Under quarantine, media is actually social

The flood of status symbol content into Instagram Stories has run dry. No one is going out and doing anything cool right now, and if they are, they should be shamed for it. Beyond sharing video chat happy hour screenshots and quarantine dinner concoctions, our piece-by-piece biographies have ground to a halt. Oddly, what remains feels more social than social networks have in a long time. With no source material, we’re doing it live. Coronavirus has absolved our desire to share the recent past...

Does coronavirus need a brand?

Stay with me here. As we enter the full throes of coronavirus spread in the US, it’s becoming incredibly evident that we cannot depend on the Federal apparatus to clearly communicate any of the necessary information citizens need. From the CDC removing exact testing numbers from its site to the President saying it would just “go away” to the White House attempting to make information about the virus briefings classified .  Meanwhile, everyone is trying to determine what the right...
