Photographer Catherine Panebianco: ‘These are my family pictures, but they’re every family’s story’

Her father’s Christmas Day tradition of showing his old slides to the family inspired Panebianco’s award-winning series, which connects tender memories to the presentWhen US photographer Catherine Panebianco was a child, her family moved around North America a lot: by the time she entered high school she had had maybe 10 different homes – “in Pennsylvania, Georgia, a couple places in California, two places in New York…”. One constant, though, was a set of photographic slides. Her father, Glenn, ...

Forests. Mosa...

In a startup reprise, Courtne Smith launches NewNew, a social network based on shared content

Since her departure from Drake’s entourage (where she worked as his longtime personal assistant) Courtne Smith has launched a line of hair products; a giveaway game that dropped swag like Yeezy shoes and Kardashian beauty products called Suprize; and now, NewNew, a social network based on the videos its users like and share. Think of the pitch as TikTok meets Facebook, where users congregate and create networks based on the videos, memes, and images they share. When Suprize launched in 2018 with...

Lakers’ Danny Green reveals how NBA players cope with mental toll of the bubble

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — There are times Danny Green needs support, but there’s times he pushes it away, too. Being inside the NBA bubble at Disney World — away from the family and people you love — for nearly two months has a mental toll which is sometimes difficult to articulate. But nothing quite makes it pour out than after a bad game. Green, 33, has had a few of those since he first got here on July 9.  A veteran of 129 playoff games, Green is used to getting a little cold now and then. But...

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...

LGBTQ outlets around the world have created virtual community centers, concert halls, and dance clubs to combat the isolation caused by the pandemic, and the options for connecting seem endless. The only problem? With a wealth of no...

Lakers’ Phil Handy extends his coaching passion with pandemic-proof app

He has always done his best work on the court. But for a decade, as he built his training business, Phil Handy’s office was a silver Volkswagen GTI that rattled across roads all over Northern California. He loaded up his car in the morning from his home in El Dorado Hills – 30 miles east of Sacramento – and drove to Marin County, directly north of San Francisco. Sometimes he wound through the Bay Area to Stanford or St. Mary’s College or UC Davis or Berkeley. Many days, maybe even most days, Han...

Yes, it’s the capital of ‘woke’. But is Canada the best royal retreat for Harry and Meghan?

On the surface it might appear an open, liberal country, but the reality of life there can be numbingAs Britain hyperventilates in the wake of a hard Megxit, the duchess has fled to Toronto. My home town, it’s rumoured, is the place where the couple ultimately plan to settle. It makes sense, I suppose.

Joe Pantoliano on Working With Tom Cruise, Being Directed by Steven Spielberg, and More [Interview]

Joe Pantoliano, affectionately known as “Joey Pants” to many, wears his roles like few others from his generation. His breakout role was in 1983’s Risky Business , with the indelible role of “Guido the Pimp”, and from there he consistently made films and shows better with his very appearance. He often plays wise-cracking, quick-to anger characters bemused by the idiocy around him, and it’s this acerbic yet intelligent takes that leap off the screen. Midnight Run saw him spend much of the mo...

How To Keep It Real on Instagram

It’s something that would have sounded utterly outrageous only a few short years ago. And while there are arguments for why you shouldn’t build your business on rented land and how many people have gone about it the wrong way, it is possible to make a very comfortable living as an Instagram influencer. You partner with brands, you post pretty pictures, and you smile and filter your life all the way to the bank. But are attitudes shifting? Have careful curation and photo editing gone too far, and...
