The Industria Age

Industria, from Anatolia Tile and Stone, is a unique flooring collection designed to evoke a rough-around-the-edges aesthetic. As befits the collection’s name, Industria is suggestive of reclamation and re-use: “industrial, worn, consumed, used, revived, reused, modern, the Industria series is all of these.” Constructed of porcelain that’s been peppered with individual pieces of aggregate, Industria achieves an enviable synthesis of age and newness. These worn and weathered tiles have been inf...

Biography Verhaeren, Émile: Rembrandt (german) v.1, 20.03.2019

Émile Verhaeren (1855-1916) war ein belgischer Lyriker. In seinen in französischer Sprache und in freiem Versmaß geschriebenen Gedichten entwickelte er eine moderne, großstädtische Lyrik, die auch technische Entwicklungen und soziale Fragen aufgriff. Stefan Zweig, der ihn schon als Schüler bewunderte, lernte ihn mit etwa 20 Jahren persönlich kennen und übersetzte später einen Teil seiner Werke ins Deutsche. Auch Verhaerens Künstlerbiografien über die großen Maler Rembrandt und Rubens machte er s...

What would bring Nook back from the dead?

Not sure if this is news or general discussion. GoodEreader had an article about the Nook division getting some new blood: Will Barnes and Noble get serious about the Nook? Quote: The shuffle of Barnes & Noble’s technology leaders occurred when the Chief Digital Officer Fred Argir announced his retirement and William Wood was promoted to the CDO role internally. The bookseller then hired Carlo Pochintesta as Chief Information Officer last week. ...

I submitted a bug on this issue that was closed as invalid. So I would like to ask for assistance here, since I am still having trouble. I am using the Companion to connect to Calibre over wireless.

I believe I have found the problem, but am unsure how to proceed from here...

Onyx Boox Note Pro! (First Impressions)

First off, was fantastic. I pre-ordered the device last month and it shipped on the advertised day of availability (Monday). It arrived within 24 hours from GERMANY (I'm on the US East Coast) in perfect condition. I'm very happy with my experience. The device is very nice...its just an incremental upgrade from the Note Plus but I like the improvements. If you have the two devices side-by-side you will notice the barely-perceptible extra layer for the front light....

What cover do you recommend for my new Forma?

My dear mom just gifted me with a Forma. (It's still not in my hands.) This will be my first ereader ever. What cover/case do you recommend? I see some cases with origami folding, which, I believe, lets you put it on a table in either portrait or landscape orientation, hands-free. What I want in a case, firstly, is that it protects the screen when it's in my backpack/bag. I don't know how important the awake/sleep mode of the original Kobo-branded cover is for me, as I've never had one. :)...

Made in California: A Curated Collection of Handmade Furniture from Honeyed Figs

We first got to know Tamar Barnoon, a set designer and stylist, when she sent us photos of one of her interiors projects, a 1920s Spanish-style house in the Los Feliz hills for a creative couple (see Kitchen of the Week: In Los Feliz, A Moody, Romantic Spanish Modern Update). Now Barnoon has launched a line of furniture and home goods called Honeyed Figs, collaborating with a select group of LA artists and furniture makers. “I’m selling what I consider to be furniture ‘basics’ akin to the little...

On sluts and slatterns

Here is another attack on sl-words, a continuation of the one celebrated last week (“The sl-morass”). There, I mentioned the fact that a word beginning with sl– tends to develop negative connotations. My example was Engl. slim, as opposed to German schlimm “bad.” Another example (one of many!) is slight. In the Old Germanic languages, including Gothic, which was recorded in the fourth century, the word meant “smooth,” perhaps “slippery.” (Incidentally, to slip is also a verb of questionable ante...

Kobo Aura One Collections

Hi, this is my first post so apologies for any mistakes or lack of protocol etc. I have about a hundred books on my Aura One of which 60 are a collection of George Simenon's Maigret books. I would like to know if there is any way that I can hide them from my general book list and only "see" them when I click on the Maigret Collection. When I go to My Books they are all there mixed in with all my other books and, as I am about to load another 50 books (non-Maigret) before I set off on my travels...

Notable female microbiologists you’ve never heard of

Browsing through the most notable names in the history of microbiology, you could be fooled into thinking there were no female scientists working in ground-breaking fields such as antibiotic studies, bacteriology, or virology in the middle of the twentieth century. In fact, laboratories did employ women, though male scientists often thought of them as supplemental parts of teams working in a highly technical field, not contributing much in the way of impact. However, a closer look at the history...
