Best things to do in Marche, Italy

The stone piazza in Urbisaglia, in the Marche region of central Italy, is like many in the country’s medieval villages. School kids play soccer under the shadow of a 16th-century tower, their abandoned book bags strewn on the church steps. Two older men sit on a bench and talk politics. A woman crosses the piazza, heading home with groceries in-hand. The clothing store shopkeeper steps outside to smoke a cigarette as a pair of travelers watch Italian life unfold, relaxing over aperitivi and s...

2018 Gear of the Year

Picking the best gear of 2018 is often pretty easy, but sometimes it requires a decent amount of hair-splitting.

Long-Lost Letter Shows How Galileo Tried to Fool the Inquisition & Escape Censure for Putting Scientific Truth Ahead of Church Dogma (1613)

“Tell all the truth but tell it slant,” wrote Emily Dickinson, “Success in Circuit lies.” No doubt she had more literary, or metaphysical, matters in mind than scientific. But for scientists working in times hostile to change, telling the truth, as they know it, can be dangerous. This applies to EPA scientists working today as it did 400 years ago to European astronomers, who faced censure—with possibly fatal consequences—for contradicting the official version of reality dictated by the Catholi...

'There's going to be a lot of interest in the stock': Here's one way to play the Spotify direct listing

Spotify's direct public offering, set for Tuesday, is a risky one. Alex Castelli, managing partner and co-leader of CohnReznick's National Liquidity and Capital Formation Advisory Group offers a strategy for the prudent investor. Spotify's using a "novel method" to go public, and that approach has its risks.

Product Review: Cool weather, USA made kit from Ornot

Socks, Bib shorts and jersey colourways sync up for a put together look.(Photos: James Buckroyd) Pretty psyched for a change of season, I ordered up some new gear. I needed some new colder weather kit and wanted to try something different, so I grabbed a few things from Ornot, a smaller San Fransisco company that has been around for about four years.
