Historic Manuscript Filled with Beautiful Illustrations of Cuban Flowers & Plants Is Now Online (1826 )

The internet has become an essential back up system for thousands of pieces of historical art, science, and literature, and also for a specialized kind of text incorporating them all in degrees: the illustrated natural science book, from the golden ages of book illustration and philosophical naturalism in Europe and the Americas. We’ve seen some fine digital reproductions of the illustrated Nomenclature of Colors by Abraham Gottlob Werner, for example—a book that accompanied Darwin on his Beagl...

WeWork just made its first acquisition of 2019, snapping up a visitor identity and behavior company

WeWork is diving more aggressively into software sales. Just six months after spending $100 million in cash on Teem, a Salt Lake City-based office management startup, the company has acquired Euclid, a data platform that tracks the identity and behavior of people in the physical world. WeWork isn’t saying what it’s paying for the nine-year-old, Bay Area-based company, which raised $43.6 million over the years and whose brand will be put to rest. But the deal is clearly an effort to move WeWork f...

Harold Lloyd matriculated to Ontario for ‘The Freshman’

Ninety-five years ago this year, one of the world’s biggest movie stars came to Ontario. Harold Lloyd was here in 1924 to film scenes at the Southern Pacific Depot for “The Freshman,” in which he played naive college freshman Harold Lamb. A crew of 80 filmed at the station and on nearby streets in the downtown core. The visit “threw considerable stir into the affairs of Ontario,” the Daily Report wrote, as “plenty of Ontario spectators” gawked at the filming. In “The Freshman,” Harold Lamb is a ...

Emilia Sykes of Akron announced for Minority Leader right after Fred Strahorn (D-Dayton) resigned. Strahorn, who’d been leader for five years, had voted to retain Speaker Ryan Smith (R-Bidwell), while the majority of the Democratic caucus, including Sykes, backed Larry Householder...

The corner store could be Congress' next privacy challenge

Lawmakers have to figure out new privacy rules for offline stores now to catch up with tech giants' hunger for user data. Companies profile consumers in stores and on streets, just like they do online. The practice presents a headache for lawmakers and regulators because it's harder to address privacy offline than online. In crafting new privacy laws to cover tech giants' vast appetite for user data, lawmakers are finding that they're having to draw up new rules for the old-fashioned brick-an...

A Beautifully-Designed Edition of Euclid’s Elements from 1847 Gets Digitized: Explore the New Online, Interactive Reproduction

For two millennia, Euclid's Elements, the foundational ancient work on geometry by the famed Greek mathematician, was required reading for educated people. (The “classically educated” read them in the original Greek.) The influence of the Elements in philosophy and mathematics cannot be overstated; so inspiring are Euclid’s proofs and axioms that Edna St. Vincent Millay wrote a sonnet in his honor. But over time, Euclid’s principles were streamlined into textbooks, and the Elements was read les...

Hangin’ Around

The space close to Earth is getting crowded. It’s filling up with spacecraft, old rocket stages, and lots of other debris. The space a million miles behind Earth is getting crowded, too. It’s filling up with space telescopes. That point is known as L2. The gravity of Earth and the Sun are balanced there. So any spacecraft that goes there stays there. It’s a good spot for telescopes because their view isn’t blocked by Earth. They can be kept cooler there, too. That allows them to study some of th...

Police departments can decide if their black-and-whites are really black and white

Q. Dear Honk: When and how was it decided that all city and county police departments surrounding Los Angeles would paint their squad cars with the same black-and-white combination? I am originally from Chicago, where all of the suburban and state police cars have painted their cars with their own color combination with none matching the big city’s blue and white. I would think it would be easier to determine who is who during car chases or multi-city emergencies if each city and county had thei...

The Story Behind Raphael’s Masterpiece ‘The School of Athens’ And the Zoroaster Connection

Long before Rafael the hotheaded, red eye mask wearing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle entertained children onscreen, there was Rafael the esteemed painter who’d won over a cultured crowd of art connoisseurs. By his mid-20s, Raphael Sanzio was already a star. At the top of his game, this master of the Italian Renaissance had been invited by the pope to live in Rome, where he would spend the rest of his days. Starting in 1509 he began decorating the first of four rooms in the Papal Palace. Collective...

“I think we could do this”

Who would live within a few feet of freight trains speeding along railroad tracks? Transients and homeless people

It’s a cycle of frustration: Residents and merchants in Anaheim call Union Pacific Railroad and local police about the tents of homeless people — and growing piles of trash — cropping up between Euclid and Brookhurst streets within a few feet of the train tracks. Police come out periodically to assist a lone Union Pacific safety officer to clear out the area. Then, within a week or so, the tents are back again. More than just a problem in Anaheim, homeless encampments on railroad property pose a...
