But with audio streaming, social media and other factors pushing the contemporary music landscape into an increasingly variegated but fragmented state, some measure of thoughtful inventorying seems both prudent and practical. In that spirit, here’s a biased and opinionated survey of...

Basel Braille Connects Blind Performers with Regular People Through Facts 'You Can Only See When You Cannot See'

How did the first mother in space become godmother to a cruise ship?

What’s the most surreal experience you have ever had? Curiously, for Anna Fisher – one of NASA’s first six female astronauts and famously the first mother to go into space – becoming godmother to the cruise ship Viking Orion sails away with the title. Fisher is not what you may expect from a legendary, space-travelling trailblazer.
