The History of the Guitar: See the Evolution of the Guitar in 7 Instruments

A thoroughly modern instrument with an ancient heritage, the history of the guitar dates back some 500-plus years. If we take into account similar stringed instruments with similar designs, we can push that date back a few thousand years, but there is some scholarly disagreement over when the guitar emerged as an instrument distinct from the lute. In any case, stringed instrument historian Brandon Acker is here to walk us through some of the significant differences, with “seven checkpoin...

The UK could roll out COVID-19 immunity passports — here's how 5 companies pitching for a role say the system could work

The UK has published proposals for COVID-19 immunity passports and other technologies that could help it track the virus. A number of startups have either held talks with government officials or submitted plans of their own, including: Yoti, Onfido, and IDnow. Governments around the world are hoping that by tracking people's COVID-19 test results and linking them to their identity, they can lift lockdowns which have crippled the global economy.   But an immunity passport program will rely on a...

CS Soapbox: 5 Reasons to Keep Cheering for Saul Goodman

BEGIN SLIDESHOW CS Soapbox: 5 Reasons to Keep Cheering for Saul Goodman [spoiler warning for those of you who haven’t watched this week’s episode] After watching this week’s brilliant episode of AMC’s Better Call Saul, titled “Wexler v. Goodman,” I was left feeling like Kim Wexler after that electrifying conference room scene — shocked, angry, sad, and ultimately conflicted. You see, I am still rooting for Saul Goodman, despite his sleazy manner and overall bad behavior. Why? Because I t...

‘Better Call Saul’ Review: Kim and Jimmy Reach a Turning Point With “Wexler v. Goodman”

This week on Better Call Saul: Mike gets back to work! Nacho is back, too! Howard goes to lunch! Jimmy plays Kim! Kim makes a jaw-dropping suggestion! Mike (and Nacho) After his sojourn on the other side of the border, Mike is back in town – and back working for Gus. His new mission: Stop Lalo. Nacho returns to the show (finally), and meets up with Gus and Mike to fill him in on Lalo’s plans – all of which involve destroying Gus and making him useless to the cartel. Gus is his usual scar...

‘Better Call Saul’ Goes South of the Border With “Dedicado a Max”

This week on Better Call Saul: Mike does some carpentry! Kim and Jimmy hatch a plan! No Nacho! Meet Mr. X! Kim and Jimmy  There’s a lot I love about Better Call Saul, but at the top of the list is Kim Wexler. I firmly believe she’s one of the most fascinating characters on TV right now. Part of that comes from how complex the character is written. And part of it comes from Rhea Seehorn‘s unparalleled performance. Seehorn is one of those actors who is very good at listening, and while you...

Her latest plan involves trying to set things right regarding the Mesa Verde situation with Mr. Acker. Kim’s wealthy clients at Mesa Verde are ready to have the law haul Acker out of his house so they can claim his land, but none of this sits right with Kim. She’s a fighter for justice, and even though Mesa Verda is well withi...

‘Better Call Saul’ Review: Jimmy is “The Guy For This”, But This Week’s Episode Belongs to Kim

This week’s Better Call Saul, “The Guy For This”, has nearly all the characters at rock-bottom, or at least as close to it as they’ve ever been. Jimmy takes a giant leap towards his inevitable criminal lifestyle; Kim’s pro bono work isn’t enough to assuage her guilt; Nacho is caught between two warring drug lords; and Mike crawls even further into the bottle. Mike Before we get to the meat of the episode, let’s check in with Mike, shall we? He’s continuing his downward spiral, drinking him...

What Guitars Were Like 400 Years Ago: An Introduction to the 9 String Baroque Guitar

Maybe it’s just me, but it sometimes feels like guitar music is on the wane. Sure, there are plenty of guitar bands out there, guitar sales seem to hold steady, but the synthesizer, midi controller, and digital audio workstation have become the dominant instruments of popular music. Then again, it’s short-sighted to count the guitar out just yet, given the 500-year longevity of its design. In the 17th century, the Lute Society of Dartmouth notes, the guitar was “cultivated by players and...

Conference Recap: 4 Leaders on Facing Unimaginable Crises

“Before dispelling a myth about a tragedy, you have to first understand how it affects you, and what it means to be in the middle of a tragedy while you’re living through it,” said Tanya Acker, judge on the Emmy-nominated TV show “Hot Bench” and host of “The Tanya Acker Show” podcast. “There’s a real ripple effect in communications and how you tell a story,” said Acker, who moderated the crisis keynote panel on Sunday afternoon at the PRSA 2019 International Conference in San Diego.

The maker of the new UK 'porn pass' scrapped the idea of selling it through Amazon because its age-verification wasn't good enough

The UK will begin age-blocking internet porn from July 15, and users will have to prove they're over 18 to access it. There are going to be various methods of proving your age, but the best-known might be the "porn pass." It uses a 16-digit code which you can buy from a shop, which will ask for ID to verify your age. Serge Acker, CEO of the company behind the pass, told Business Insider that originally he had wanted to sell the card on Amazon, but found that Amazon's own age-verification was t...

The UK will age-block porn from July 15. This 'porn pass' is one way you'll be watching it in future.

It's about to become much more difficult to watch porn in the UK. Porn in the UK will be age-blocked as of July 15, with porn sites having to bring in age-verification. One of the proposed age-verification systems is called Portes. It involves going down to a physical shop and buying a voucher, which is then uploaded via an app. Business Insider spoke to Serge Acker, the CEO of the company that owns Portes, to find out exactly how it will work.

Texas with back-to-back executions scheduled for this week

If both punishments go through as planned, it'll be the first time in just over six years that Texas ha...

Astro-Notes on the Natal Mercury of Donald Trump

Review: Cult of the Machine at the de Young

Let’s flash back to the Machine Age, the period in American history that gave us the assembly line, the first nonstop transcontinental flight, regular radio broadcasts, and the first robot capable of performing more than 20 movements. These technological advancements inspired a style of art called Precisionism, popularized by big names like Georgia O’Keefe, Charles Sheeler and Charles Demuth. The Cult of the Machine exhibit at the de Young museum in San Francisco is a reflection of attitudes tow...

On Chris Krau's Parasocial Relationship with Kathy Acker

Me talking about Chris Kraus talking about Kathy Acker talking about Bernadette Mayer is like Camille Paglia talking about Susan Sontag talking about Simone Weil talking about Jesus Christ—it's not a comparison that I find particularly favorable to me. Yet here we are. Kraus and I have never met and never spoken and yet it's clear that we both care deeply about the parasocial and we're both willing to take an excess of liberties about it. We force ourselves into one-sided relationships wi...

The Gifted Review – Mutants On The Run Drama Is Loaded With Possibilities

Getting people through the doors of a superhero series isn’t the hurdle it used to be, but the bigger problem facing The Gifted is that the pilot doesn’t tell you anything about the series to come. That isn’t the kiss of death for a series, but it makes it tricky to predict where audiences are going to find themselves a few episodes in, because even if you love the pilot, that’s apparently no predictor of showing up for episode three. The show kicks off by throwing us into a world very similar t...
