After premiering at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, The Current War was set to open in November of that year.

Gilded Age mansions in Florida

Florida generally gives about as much regard to its history as its people do to common sense. That said, though the state has bulldozed much of its past for condos, some of the grandest structures ever built in America still remain there. Even before the advent of air conditioning, Florida was a popular winter retreat for wealthy northerners, particularly during the period between the Civil War and the Great Depression, much of which is known as the “Gilded Age.” During this time, grand pala...

Law Firm Teamwork Illuminated by a Lesson from Thomas Edison

I recently read a book in which the author surmised that most readers would describe Thomas Edison as a lone tinkerer working on his many inventions in a small workshop in isolation. I must admit that when I pictured Edison, I pictured him exactly that way. I was surprised to learn that in fact, rather than being a solitary genius working in isolation, Edison worked in a state of the art facility, and a large group of scientists worked in collaboration with him on each of his inventions. ...

Edison makes changes at San Onofre, ready to resume loading nuclear waste

The blue Pacific shimmered and rippled through waves of heat, much like what rises from a car’s roof on a hot summer day.

Nearby, four giant canisters stood outside the fuel pool buildings, awaiting the green light from regulators that will allow Southern California Edison to resume transferring the highly radioactive waste from wet to dry storage in...
