Well, Nick Watney came down with Covid-19 at Hilton Head on Friday. Are you girding for the 24-team hockeypalooza that might even pick Staples Center as one of its playoff hubs, mainly because of its neutrality? Those plans might be iced.

The 10 Best Sherlock Holmes Stories

Over the course of 40 years during the late 19th and early 20th century, Arthur Conan Doyle published 60 Sherlock Holmes tales in the form of four short novels and 56 short stories (which are generally published in five separate collections). The adventures of Doyle’s iconic detective proved a craze from the start, and since then, no character has been as reproduced and adapted in film, television, stage, and the printed word.  I’d long been intrigued by the idea of Sherlock, but wasn’t real...

Apple’s handling of Siri snippets back in the frame after letter of complaint to EU privacy regulators

Apple is facing fresh questions from its lead data protection regulator in Europe following a public complaint by a former contractor who revealed last year that workers doing quality grading for Siri were routinely overhearing sensitive user data. Earlier this week the former Apple contractor, Thomas le Bonniec, sent a letter to European regulators laying out his concern at the lack of enforcement on the issue — in which he wrote: “I am extremely concerned that big tech companies are basical...

Kings’ 2019 Draft Class Catch-Up

The Los Angeles Kings desperately need an infusion of offense if they want to thrust themselves out of the NHL’s pile of bottom feeders. That’s one reason they selected Alex Turcotte with the No. 5 overall choice in 2019. But there are other needs the Kings tried to address by reeling in eight others from the sea of young, amateur talent in that draft. For instance, four of the nine were defensemen and three of those were of the offensive-minded kind who are considered longer-term projects. ...

Good Medicine: The Band’s Classic Song, “The Weight,” Sung by Robbie Robertson, Ringo Starr & Special Guests from Around the World

Robbie Robertson’s “The Weight,” the Band’s most beloved song, has the quality of Dylan’s impressionistic narratives. Elliptical vignettes that seem to make very little sense at first listen, with a chorus that cuts right to the heart of the human predicament. “Robertson admits in his autobiography,” notes Patrick Doyle at Rolling Stone, “that he struggled to articulate to producer John Simon what the song was even about.” An artist needn’t understand a creation for it to resonate with l...

Cooperation for the Sake of Our Children

In tough times, people pull together. Instinctively we might know or believe this, but this is substantiated by the research. Cooperation is quite common among survivors of disasters, with socially structured and adaptive behaviour often manifested in mass emergencies. From an evolutionary biological perspective this makes sense, as the countless crises that have plagued humanity over the ages were only surmountable through interreliance on others. Despite this history, which is often unwritten,...
