Timeless Leadership Lessons I Learned from My First Job as a Swim Instructor

THERE’S something about our first jobs that stick with us. They teach us things we didn’t expect to learn and shape the person we become later in our professional lives. This phenomenon happens even when that first job has absolutely nothing to do with the career you ultimately end up pursuing, which is exactly what happened to me. I was 14 when I first started as a lifeguard and swim instructor at my hometown pool in Canton, Connecticut. I got the position despite an awkward first interview: a...

How Kimberly Guilfoyle, the 'human Venus flytrap,' has groomed boyfriend Don Jr. into a political powerhouse and turned herself into a conservative star

Kimberly Guilfoyle at the virtual Republican National Convention on August 24. Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images Kimberly Guilfoyle, the former Fox News host, has ingratiated herself with the Trump family and become the female face of MAGA. Thanks in part to Guilfoyle's grooming, her boyfriend, Donald Trump Jr., has gone from just being Ivanka's brother to becoming one of his father's most ferocious right-hand men. A senior campaign advisor said he doesn't know "anybody outside of Hope Hicks o...

Jeff Bezos' nudes were reportedly leaked when his girlfriend Lauren Sanchez sent them to her brother, in a new twist to the dramatic saga — here's everything we know so far (AMZN)

A New York Times report alleges that intimate photos leaked to the National Enquirer of Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his girlfriend, former TV anchor Lauren Sanchez, came from messages Sanchez sent to her brother. This is the latest update in the complicated saga regarding Bezos' love life, which first gained attention after the Amazon CEO announced in January 2019 that he was getting divorced.

Jeff Bezos' phone was reportedly hacked by the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, in a new twist to the saga of his dramatic divorce — here's everything we know so far (AMZN)

On Tuesday,  reported that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos' phone was hacked by Mohammed bin Salman, crown prince of Saudi Arabia, in May 2018, via a link in a WhatsApp message. That would be just months before the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who wrote for the Bezos-owned Washington Post — and well before Jeff Bezos announced in January 2019 that he was getting divorced. Allegations emerged that the National Enquirer, who broke the story of the divorce and revealed his new relationship with ...

In the age of #MeToo, ashtanga yoga guru Pattabhi Jois’s grandson Sharath Jois says ‘sorry’ to students for the pain and trauma caused by the legend’s “improper adjustments”

Fact: All three of yoga’s modern gurus—S.T. Krishnamacharya, B.K.S. Iyengar, and K. Pattabhi Jois—have a link with Mysore. Fact: Pattabhi Jois (in picture, above) introduced Ashtanga Yoga across the world earning fame and fortune, and putting Mysore (and Gokulam) on the global yoga map. Fact: Pattabhi Jois’s son Manju and daughter Saraswati, and grandson Sharath (in picture, above) and granddaughter Sharmila have done much to continue the Pattabhi Jois legacy in their own ways. *** Now, in the ...

That's my excuse. —Mike the Ed.] Ronnie O'Sullivan, from his Facebook page. With eventualchampion Judd Trump back in the bokeh.

Schoolteacherish Mike

Sometimes I feel like referring articles is a bit schoolteacherish, like I'm passing out assignments. That is, of course, not my role, as I'm talking to friends here—my equals and betters. But really, sometimes articles come along that ya just have to read. One such is "In the Age of A.I., Is Seeing Still Believing?" by Joshua Rothman, in The New Yorker. Pretty much a must-read for photography polymaths like you. (It annoys me that The New Yorker has evidently adopted another QUIRK—awkward "shou...

"A Japanese Photographer’s View of Life in His Family’s One-Room Home"

Image and text borrowed from The New Yorker, 6/9/18. Thanks to GW via EASIANTH for the heads-up on this great piece. The Yamamoto family values were forged in small spaces,” the Japanese photographer Masaki Yamamoto told me recently. For eighteen years, his family of seven coexisted in a one-room apartment in Kobe. His father drove trucks, and his mother worked as a cashier in a supermarket. They and their five children all slept in the same space, a room the size of six tatami mats, limbs o...

"Each winter, for close to a century now, hundreds of Amish and Mennonite families have travelled from their homes in icy quarters of the U.S. and Canada to Pinecraft, a small, sunny neighborhood in Sarasota, Florida."

"Arriving on chartered buses specializing in the transportation of 'Plain people' from areas such as Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and Holmes County, Ohio, they rent modest bungalows and stay for weeks, or sometimes months, at a time. It’s vacation.... [W]ithout barns to raise or cows to milk or scrapple to prepare, the typically stringent rules of Anabaptist life are somewhat suspended in Pinecraft.... Earrings, usually forbidden, can be seen glittering from beneath white bonnets, and houses are out...

Around the Web on a Friday

Dawoud Bey: "It never occurred to me that this mysterious phone number that kept popping up on my phone was the Foundation." • Congratulations to photographer Dawoud Bey, who has just been awarded a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, AKA the "genius grant." Dawoud is what some of us might call a "real" photographer rather than an art-world hothouse flower, which is encouraging to others who are "just" photographers. Do note two important things, however—he is tremendously articulate and able to...

Random Excellence: Lori Swadley's '52 Addicts'

The June 5 & 12 issue of The New Yorker features a long "Reporter at Large" article by Margaret Talbot called "The Addicts Next Door: West Virginians fighting to save opioid abusers—and their town—from destruction." It's a long, engrossing article, if one that's difficult to read. The article includes a series of mini-profiles of a number of people, and one of the first ones featured is Lori Swadley, a successful wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer from the Martinsburg, West Virginia area...

Photolemur photo editing software review

We are in the middle of a popular photo explosion, in case you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past decade. Not since the introduction of the Brownie camera in 1900 has there been such interest in photography by the general public. For $1 (about $30 in today’s money), normal everyday people could make this new thing called a “snapshot” and share it with friends. Today, with no processing and printing needed, this happens instantly, rather than in a few days when the roll is finished, sent o...

Weekend Reading: Steidl

Well, darn, after all that, I didn't even get around to the post I meant to write today. It was about something weird I've noticed about landscape photography. Hope I'll remember come Monday. If you have any free time over the weekend and are looking for something fun to read, The New Yorker has published a profile of the protean Gerhard Steidl. I won't comment about the article because I haven't even finished reading it yet, but the beginning was tasty, and it has this to recommend it: about si...

This Week In Photography Books: Zackary Canepari

  The best art connects to something universal. (That’s why it’s the best.) It has a quality that speaks to people across our many divides. Michelangelo’s “Pieta,” or a Van Gogh olive grove, can inspire almost anyone. Even better, look at Jackson Pollock’s seminal paintings, which attempted to represent Jung’s collective unconscious, and many believe they do. (Myself included.) Pollock’s work doesn’t look so great in reproductions, because the scale, texture, and color patterns all need to be ex...

Technophasia

[Mike is on semi-vacation this week so TOP is on half-speed till Wednesday the 24th.] I'm sure all of us have had the experience of coming across an article that mentions photographic technical details where it's immediately obvious that the writer doesn't know what he's talking about, sometimes making for a bit of unintentional absurdity. Carl happened across this the other day (I don't want to embarrass the writer of this by identifying the source): [The photographer's] early use of Kodachrome...

Why Are We So Quick To Attack Celebrities On Social Media?

Our ability to comment publicly on Instagram posts, Tweets, and Facebook statuses is both a blessing and a curse.It can let us commiserate with someone's joys and sorrows in life. And importantly, it also allows us to call out individuals for racist or sexist remarks, and to draw attention to larger issues. But recently, social media has became a hub where bullying athletes, singers, actors, and well, anyone really, has become completely acceptable.Gabby Douglas was one of the most publicized v...

Big Words and Sports Fans

It might surprise you to learn that most "big" (little-known) words aren't big. The least-known words (fylfot, gossypol, absquatulate, obloquy) are on average only one letter longer than common words known to most English speakers. Many five-syllable words (university, humiliation, electricity, vocabulary) are well known to most people who are fluent. "Incomprehensibilities" and "uncopyrightable" are long words, but not hard ones. But very few English speakers can define "fetial" on the fly. Ano...

These Incredible Gay Home Movies Bring The Past To Life

We regularly marvel at how snapshots of LGBTQ life from the past are able to do what even the most impassioned history lesson cannot — provide a relatable visual texture to the lives we might have led had we entered the world at a different blip in time. Movies are even more immersive for obvious reasons, however few and far between. In a recent New Yorker piece, a treasure trove of queer cultural preservation is profiled, starting with the personal home video collection of Harold O’Neal, who w...

Uber, The End Of Newspapers And What's A Society To Do?

Every Monday morning at 7:10 am, I am a guest contributor on CHOM 97.7 FM radio broadcasting out of Montreal (home base). It's not a long segment - about 5 to 10 minutes every week - about everything that is happening in the world of technology and digital media. The good folks at CHOM 97.7 FM are posting these segments weekly to SoundCloud, if you're interested in hearing more of me blathering away. I'm really excited about this opportunity, because this is the radio station that I grew up on l...
