Reconsidering the period room as a museum-made object

For those of us used to visiting historical houses and encyclopedic museums, the word “period room” will sound familiar. A period room is a display combining architectural components, pieces of furniture, and decorative objects organized to evoke—and in some rare cases recreate—an interior, very often domestic and dating from a past era.Period rooms were widespread among European museums during the last decades of the nineteenth century, and became popular in North American institutions in the e...

We need to start treating producers in hip-hop fairly

It’s become all too common to hear of producers getting screwed over or unappreciated for their work. This has to end. Producers are a major artery in the blood flow of the music industry and that isn’t seen anywhere more than in hip-hop. Producers are often the key to hip-hop artists’ success, setting the stage for rappers to jump up and knock them down. Despite the key role they play in hip-hop music they are so often undervalued and it’s terrible. So today is another day, and another...

Daddy’s Hangout 2019 NCAA Tournament Prediction

It’s that time of year again and that’s March Madness of course. Honestly, this is my favorite time of the year because anything can happen, and it usually does. Coming into the tournament, Duke is the overwhelming favorite and deservedly so. Zion Williamson is the phenom that everyone talked about and then some. In the ACC tournament, he became the first freshman since Kevin Durant to average 30 points and 10 boards in a conference tournament. There are quite a few other teams that have a gre...

Adoration Is an Invitation to a Transfiguration Experience

I was at a weekend retreat gathering of priests and religious some years ago. One of the elderly priest-attendees remarked how times had changed. He said that many years ago when priests and religious gathered in a place, the first thing that they would ask is where the chapel was located in the building so that they could spend some moments of Eucharistic adoration. But now, when priests and religious gather together in a place, they first ask for the Wi-Fi password and the place in the house w...

10 Things To Do If Your Lent Plans Fail

Lent is not simple. It’s not meant to be. And it’s not “Catholic guilt” that makes it seem so arduous, either. We shouldn’t discourage any sense of guilt that stems from the very heart of this season, which is penance and repentance. Nor should we give up if Lent was more than we planned. That sense of guilt and acknowledging our shortcomings are exactly what enables us to becoming closer to God in this time, which is the real goal in the end. What do you do then, when you’ve utterly failed at L...

What Do We Need To Give Back to God This Lent?

The Christian life is a long progression of letting go of our own wants and desires in order to live in accordance with God’s will. This is a difficult process for all of us. In our Fallen state, we want to grasp at the things of this world that are most pleasing to us. We make plans and when they fall apart we don’t respond well. For many of us, stepping onto the path of sanctification comes with a rude awakening. We didn’t know it would cost us so much. We didn’t know it would mean so much suf...

How Facebook’s Major Ad Policy Changes Are Impacting Reverse Mortgage Marketers

Facebook on Tuesday announced sweeping changes to its advertising policies that will likely cause a shift in the way mortgage marketers use the platform to reach prospective borrowers—reverse mortgage lenders included. By limiting the demographic filters that marketers can use to target Facebook users in certain product categories, the social media giant will change the marketplace, some lenders say. “Facebook’s ad policy changes will have some impact on our social media strategy,” said Rever...

Opinion analysis: Justices sidestep decision on propriety of “cy pres” class-action settlements

This morning the justices issued a per curiam opinion vacating the decision of the lower court in Frank v. Gaos. They had granted review in that case to consider the propriety of so-called “cy pres” settlements – settlements of class actions that distribute all or a part of the monetary relief to public-interest or charitable recipients instead of the named plaintiffs. In this case, for example, the lower courts awarded $8.5 million in monetary relief in a suit brought by plaintiffs alleging tha...

Opinion analysis: Washington state motor-fuel tax violates Yakama Treaty

With a three-justice plurality opinion, a two-justice concurrence in the judgment and two dissents, Washington State Department of Licensing v. Cougar Den appears unusually fractured at first glance. But the disagreements among seven of the justices are relatively small, turning largely on whether and why Washington’s motor-fuel tax really burdens the Yakama treaty right to travel. Only the dissent by Justice Brett Kavanaugh, joined by Justice Clarence Thomas, indicates a fundamental disagreemen...

Opinion analysis: Justices uphold broad interpretation of immigration detention provision

In Nielsen v. Preap, four justices joined Justice Samuel Alito yesterday to adopt an expansive interpretation of a mandatory-immigration-detention statute. In Demore v. Kim, in 2003, the Supreme Court interpreted 8 U.S.C. § 1226(c) to require detention (without bond hearings) for the broad class of potentially removable immigrants identified in the statute. With their decision in Nielsen v. Preap, the Supreme Court further broadened this mandatory-detention provision to cover immigrants who, res...

Argument preview: Justices to tackle important agency-deference question

Wilkie, as well as at Howe on the Court, where it was originally published. Next week the Supreme Court will hear oral argument in Kisor v. Wilkie, which arises from a dispute over benefits for a Marine who served in the Vietnam War. Although it may sound dry, the case could be one of the most consequential of the term, because the justices will decide whether to over...

Making a music video on a budget

Since MTV broke in the 80’s music videos have become a massive part of artist’s careers. Being on a budget shouldn’t stop you making a great video. First off you want to think about the kind of video you want to make. If you have ideas about what you want for your video then you can look at how to approach that. If you’re totally lost for what your music video will be then look at collaborating with a creative. If you know any filmmakers or artists they could help you realise your potentia...

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...

Beta Release of Adobe DNG Converter 11.2.1

I recently learned that Adobe quietly dropped a beta version of the free DNG converter to help people with newly released cameras (since the last official update in Feb) gain support for their raw photos in Lightroom and Camera Raw.

He Who Sees True Opportunities Shall Always Prosper

People may find themselves in a position where they cannot find a job that is as good as the one they lost. What is important, however, is what people do when they are in this position. I cannot tell you the number of people I have seen completely blow it when it came to reestablishing their careers, after losing their prior jobs. I do not want you to be one of these people.
