In This Together: Helping Yourself, Helping Each Other in the New Pandemic Reality

While empty Main Streets have been crippling many small businesses in the current crisis, there’s a different trend as well – of businesses tapping into their own creativity and resilience to help themselves, help each other and help the broader community during this time of need. Fallout from the pandemic has hit small businesses everywhere. Through no fault of their own, many simply can’t do business, and for others it has become much, much harder because customers are staying at home. Less th...

Armenian Cognac Might Be the Booze World's Best Secret

When you take the number 201 bus into Yerevan from Zvartnots International Airport, the first sign that you’re nearing the city is a hilltop citadel looming on the horizon with soaring arches, wrap-around stone walls, and landscaped lawns that slope gently down to the banks of the Hrazdan River—Armenia’s House of Parliament, you might think, or the prime minister's residence. But this grand, iconic building welcoming visitors from near and far is, in fact, a brandy factory. To most Westerner...

Lakers’ Quinn Cook keeps showing passion for his hoops roots

Quinn Cook’s online cul-de-sac is bursting with challengers. For the few weeks in April when Cook hosted a nightly marathon Instagram live feed, it drew all levels of players. He would air live feeds chatting with Kevin Durant and Victor Oladipo, All-Stars who hail from the same region in Maryland where Cook grew up. But he also would allow cameos from D.C.-area streetballers, whose names are known only in gyms and playgrounds, and who inevitably want a piece of him. It matters little that the L...

The New Nikon D6

Nikon just announced its new pro flagship, the D6. Although you probably won't see this mentioned much on the Web and in the forums, this brings to parity the number of top-end film F cameras and pro digital D cameras. There's a slight disparity in the time it took to get there: the original Nikon F was introduced in April 1959 and the F6 began shipping in 2004 and can still be purchased new (or rather, out of what's called "new old stock," NOS, with outflow regulated to a trickle by a high pri...

More Teenagers Mistakenly Think “Private” Chat Conversations Will Remain Private–People v. JP

This is a story of four teenage girls and one teenage boy. The girls use the aliases “7Up” (a/k/a JP, the defendant in this case), “Lady Gaga,” “Dream Ruiner,” and “Me.” The boy, called S, allegedly engaged in anti-social behavior towards some of the girls (pushing their books off their desks and calling one of them “fat” and “gay”). The trial judge thought S did this in a misguided play for affection. Unbeknownst to the other girls, “Me” considered S a friend. The four girls maintained a Snapch...

May 22 roundup

My comment on the House-passed H.R. 5: “Proposed Equality Act would 1) massively expand federal liability in areas unrelated to sex, gender, or orientation; 2) turn 1000s of routine customer gripes into federal public-accommodations cases; 3) squeeze conscience exemptions hard. All are good reasons to oppose.” More: Scott Shackford, Elizabeth Nolan Brown, Hans Bader, and earlier here and here; America is not in a constitutional crisis: “Politicians have become incentivized to declare constit...

Facebook introduces ‘one strike’ policy to combat abuse of its live-streaming service

Facebook is cracking down on its live streaming service after it was used to broadcast the shocking mass shootings that left 50 dead at two Christchurch mosques in New Zealand in March. The social network said today that it is implementing a ‘one strike’ rule that will prevent users who break its rules from using the Facebook Live service. “From now on, anyone who violates our most serious policies will be restricted from using Live for set periods of time — for example 30 days — starting on ...

Refinery29 Readers Confess Their Amazon Hidden Gems

Amazon is essentially an IRL version of Ariel's treasure trove, famously detailed in her The Little Mermaid number, "Part Of Your World." Only instead of a cavernous hole 1000 leagues under the sea, all that "neat" stuff is housed on digital shelves across the web. And, instead of useless, "whozits," "whatzits," and, "thingamabobs," Amazon's best booty is a collection of secret weapon stuff that we never knew we needed and now we that we have it, simply can't live without — a collection we've c...

Maggie Rogers Inspires Introspection On Debut Album

The world and Pharrell Williams met Maggie Rogers at the same time, effectively. Though she later said she had no idea he would be there, much less that the interaction would be filmed and put on the internet, Pharrell’s reaction to her song “Alaska” went viral; one of the giants of music production told this college student he had zero notes to better her track, “Alaska.” A music sensation was born as the clip made its way through Reddit onto music blogs and Rogers found herself booked to play...

The 2018 Golden Dukes Awards Nominees Are Here!

When it comes to scandals, 2018 was a doozy. Between the expansive Russia probe, the near-constant cabinet secretary snafus, and a wild midterm election, it’s hard to keep track of all the muck. And so, as we do every year, we’ve rounded up some of the best instances of corruption, stupidity and craziness for the 12th Annual Golden Duke Awards! The awards are named after former Rep.

Pennsylvania Law Fines Drones Used for Spying

In a move intended to curb what we can only suspect is a perceived outbreak of drone chicanery, the state of Pennsylvania in the United States is levying fines on drones used for spying in what is perhaps one of the first laws specifically targeting drones as vehicles for domestic surveillance outside of authorized channels.

The Remarkable Persistence of 24x36

A hundred and five years ago, in 1913, an asthmatic photographer who worked as an engineer for the Leitz optical factory in Wetzlar, Germany, seeking a less burdensome camera to carry, invented a handy little camera that was about as small as he could make it. It used 35mm movie film, so-called because its overall width, including the sprocket-holed edges, is 35mm. The film had the sprocket holes along both edges for registration in movie cameras and projectors, and, because it traveled a vertic...

This Is The Company Responsible For Making Dorm Rooms Look Like Pinterest Boards

This summer, while visiting the Maryland suburb where I grew up, I stumbled upon a homegoods store. It was unlike any I'd seen before – a perfect, unsullied articulation of an aesthetic I can only describe by repeating the word ‘Pinterest’ over and over again. There were shag rugs and furry throw pillows in cotton candy colors, seemingly endless strings of lights with little round bulbs, and surfaces topped with glossy faux-marble coverings. There were banana leaf accents and framed prints of p...

Fox News and Maryland Resident Square Off Over Storm Photo Usage

Copyright infringement and photography are two topics we cover all the time in our news section, and for good reason – as a photographer’s livelihood, the work created in the field literally puts food on the table. That’s why creators are so adamant about the most stringent of protections, even those that may seem extreme to outsiders. After all, people think, it’s just a picture, right?

AK Monthly Recap: April 2018

This month my beautiful friend gave birth to the most perfect baby boy. Not only am I crazy about this kiddo, I’m an auntie for the first time ever!

Most people who try to become travel bloggers are dreaming of the travel perks — “free” trips, getting paid to travel, unlimited vacation time. But for me, the best perks are being able to make my own hours and be there for ...

Strange DNA

Some things never change: Fast and slow Zeiss 35's on the Sony A7III. Illustration from CameraSize. Companies don't have DNA and neither do product lines, and yet, mysteries persist. Many moons ago, I had caught the photography bug and was saving for my first camera and considering what to buy. I was taking classes at the University of Maryland, and on the way home from College Park I'd get off the Beltway and stop at Industrial Photo, where I'd befriended a counterman named Ray Mohr.
