Guest Post: Debra Graham

  Like many of the other blog posters who have shared about themselves here, I’ve wondered if I should accept Corey’s invitation to tell a bit about my life. Don’t we all wonder if we are “good enough” or “ interesting enough? Finally, I thought I’d just throw that doubt out the window. So here’s a bit about me.     I’m a native Mainer now living in North Carolina, a change that has been a real culture shock. When my husband retires in a few years, we will move further north and also ho...

Oscar-winner John Ridley explores the lives of superheroes of color in ‘The Other History of the DC Universe’

John Ridley remembers how he felt as a boy in the late ’70s when Black Lightning debuted as the first Black superhero with his own DC Comics series. “Here’s a hero who, you know, kind of looked like me,” Ridley says. “Black Lightning was certainly the first hero where I felt a connection that was more than just pure enjoyment, pure entertainment. “It was like, ‘Oh, this is something. This is unique, this is special,’” he says. “And I most definitely was hooked from that point on.” Sierra Can...

Fine, This Smartphone Mount That Turns an Apple Watch Into a Viewfinder for Selfies Is Pretty Clever

If you’re snapping a quick selfie for social media, the lower quality camera on the front of your smartphone is usually just fine. But what if you want to use the higher quality lenses and camera on the back to film yourself? It means you can’t see the screen and no longer have a live preview of yourself for framing.…Read more...

TikTok’s rise in the West is unprecedented for any Chinese tech company, and so is the amount of attention it has attracted from politicians worldwide.

An African Christmas

Firstly a big thank you because I know many of you have been supporting the Kayaker (aka son,Tommy Hatwell) via Instagram and Facebook with his endeavours to keep the village in Uganda and his friends in Acholi Quarter in Kampala supplied with essential food during recent months. It wasn’t the year Tommy had planned, not in the slightest, but the Ugandans weren't expecting it either, yet it’s the year we've all been given and we've stayed with the positive and the optimistic here. That’s not har...

The Prettiest Entrance in Paris

Not too far from the Eiffel Tower on Avenue Rapp is a gorgeous building in the Art Nouveau style built in the late 1800’s by an architect named Lavirotte. I wasn’t too far away the other day and decided to get another look. Here it is. Pretty elaborate and over the top. Closer. Once I was here as a lady came out and I went inside to look at the entrance lobby which turned out to be rather plain to my surprise. Note her fox stole, at least I think that’s what it is. Surely not ...

The Gold of Autumn

I saw on my weather app that there was 100% chance of rain the next day so I got myself out in the fresh air along with many other Parisians, this being a Saturday afternoon, and headed in the opposite direction of the Eiffel Tower for a change of scenery. I reached the Andre Citroën Park made from the site of the old manufacturing plant. It’s not my favorite, rather stiff and modern, but it looked good in its Autumn colors. I did pass the beautiful Mirabeau bridge on the way. There ...

Dave Chappelle Pulls ‘Chappelle’s Show’ Off Netflix, Calls for Boycott on Other Streaming Platforms

Dave Chappelle is calling his fans to boycott…Chappelle’s Show? The 2003 sketch comedy show which Chappelle co-created and hosted initially ran on Comedy Central, and is now available on several streaming services — which Chappelle isn’t very happy about. See, it comes down to an issue of pay, after he signed a lucrative contract with Comedy Central for which he “never got paid.” So until he gets paid, Chappelle would rather Chappelle’s Show not be available to stream anywhere, and Netflix — wh...

WHO and what is a genius? The label gets thrown around a lot. Are you a genius? Probably not. But then, most of us are not. However, you can learn to think like one. Craig Wright teaches a class at Yale on the nature of genius. He distills all of that work into his book with a hopeful title, The Hidden Habits of Genius: Beyond Talent, IQ, and Grit—Unlocking the Secrets of Greatness.

Take Free Photography Classes from Nikon Through the End of the Year
