Centaurus A

Loud and Clear Lanes of dark dust punctuated by bright stellar nurseries highlight the center of Centaurus A, a distant galaxy that is one of the brightest in the night sky. The galaxy, also known as NGC 5128, also is a major source of radio waves. They come from the galaxy's core and from "jets" that shoot into space above and below the core. The dust lanes and radio waves suggest that Centaurus A may be the result of a recent merger between two smaller gala...

Agency Brief: It's been a week

Hoowee, what a week it’s been. Walt Disney Co. reached a deal to take full control of Hulu. Woodstock 50 creator Michael Lang’s publicized suit against Dentsu Aegis Network over its attempt to cancel his anniversary festival ended with a ruling that the agency couldn’t in fact shut it down but also had every right to pull funding. (Just today, Oppenheimer & Co. said it will provide the financing to keep Woodstock 50 alive.) And of course there was the upfront onslaught. Amid all this, the dai...

The Best Work I Saw at the Denver Portfolio Walk

  Tick tock, goes the clock. Tick tock. It’s counting down the minutes until I need to pull out of my driveway tomorrow. (Tick tock.) It’s an early departure to drive 5 hours to Denver, fly to Charlotte, change planes, and then end up in London on Thursday morning. (If everything goes as it should.) I’d by lying if I said I was back to normal after the NYC/NJ and Portland double-double. I’m not normal at all. But, (and this is a big BUT,) every now and again, being jet-lagged can be a good thing...

Dogs welcome at White Sands park

Stepping out of your vehicle onto fine gypsum crystals is the closest thing to walking on the moon that most of us will ever experience. At White Sands National Monument, dunes of white sand ripple across a vast expanse of open desert, ceasing only at the feet of the towering Sierra Blanca mountains. This 224-square-mile protected area of rolling gypsum dunes in southern New Mexico is the truest embodiment of the state’s catchphrase as the “Land of Enchantment.” But any dog owner knows that p...

Police: Man Patrolling With Border Militia Suggested Going ‘Back To Hitler Days’

An armed man who joined a border militia patrol last month mused aloud about mass killing the migrants and asylum seekers they observed crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, prompting a member of the militia to alert local authorities, according to a police report unearthed by The Young Turks. “Why are we just apprehending them and not lining them up and shooting them?” the man, Armando Gonzalez, asked United Constitutional Patriots (UCP) member Steven “Viper” Brant, who later reported the comment...

This Week in Photography Books: Trace

  Let’s be honest. The right piece of advice, at just the right time, can make all the difference. For example, a friend once told me, when the voices in your head get too loud, turn the music up even louder. (That’s wisdom, people.) I decided to try it on Tuesday, as I twitched and shook from the collective exhaustion of a full-week on the road in Portland, followed by a 2-day-trip-home, after flight cancellations and delays saw me land in Albuquerque in the middle of the night. I had one song ...

'Vampire facials' spreading HIV

According to the New Mexico Department of Health, two customers at the VIP Spa in Albuquerque who received “vampire facials” were reportedly infected with HIV. The “vampire facial” is a procedure in which a customer’s blood is drawn, placed into a centrifuge, and reapplied to the face, sometimes via injections, for supposed cell renewal benefits. The popularity of “vampire facials” soared after Kim Kardashian West posted an Instagram photo of herself post-vampire facial in 2013. In September...
