Now We Know This Wax Bust Is Definitely Not A Leonardo. How Do We Know? Sperm Whales

Back in 1909, a couple of very prominent German art historians decided, for various reasons, that a wax figurine of the goddess Flora that one of them had picked up at a London antique store simply had to be a genuine Leonardo da Vinci, and announced this with great fanfare. The London Times responded that no, the bust was actually sculpted by one Richard Cockle Lucas in 1860. “In the next two years, more than 730 heated articles were written debating the attribution. There were debates on the ...

Bill To Help Laid-Off Workers Passed By California Legislature

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — Now that Gov.

Between the 1910s and the 1960s, a nature-lover with a sure artistic hand and a yen to see the world could have done much worse than signing on with the Wildlife Conservation Society. During those decades, when the WCS was known as the New York Zoological Society, its “Department of Tropical Research (DTR), led by William Beebe, conducted dozens of ecological expeditions across tropical terrestrial and marine locales,” says the organization’s web site.

‘Flora and Ulysses’ Review: A Young Girl Befriends a CG Squirrel with Superpowers

Over the last 16 months, Disney+ has unleashed a slew of original films and TV shows, but few have felt like throwbacks to the days when Walt Disney Pictures released one low-budget, low-stakes comedy into theaters after another, in the hopes of translating into moderate box-office success. Though Disney+ has had a fair amount of new films, most of them – either because of the pandemic or through sheer luck – feel bigger than their streaming home.

The Meticulous, Elegant Illustrations of the Nature Observed in England’s Countryside If you happen to have grown up in the English countryside, you probably retain a certain sensitivity to and affinity for nature.

But Jo Brown has shown how to base a career on it: an artist and illustrator — and “birder wildlifer mushroomer,” according to her Twitter bio — she has long kept a “nature journa...

A Summer Without Snow: Athletes and Coaches on a Year with No Summer Skiing

DIY Dachstein: September tracks on a snowfield in the Chugach mountains, Sept. 27, 2020.

The related truism, that summer snow time is necessary to effectively compete as a high-level skier come winter, also has a venerable history.  For example, here’s Luke Bodensteiner, writing in Endless Winter about why he had journeyed to a place where “the weather sucks all year long” to...

‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’ Spoiler Review: Not Perfectly Splendid – But Close

I’ve already given a traditional, spoiler-free assessment of The Haunting of Bly Manor, in which I delved into how the series felt like a bit of a step-down from The Haunting of Bly Manor. Part of that review abided by embargo notes – Netflix sent out a list of details they really didn’t want covered in reviews, for the sake of protecting spoilers. But now that Bly Manor has been streaming for a few days, I’m returning to touch on some of the more spoiler-centric elements haunting the new Netfl...

Was there any discussion of "systemic racism" during the debate?

I need to read the transcript, in part because I want to do a word search, but in part because I, like so many of you, became distracted when a fly landed on Mike Pence's hair and stayed there for quite a long while. I thought it would never leave. Pence has helmet hair, so zero chance of feeling the weight or movement of the fly, and the fly barely moved. We talked about whether the fly was stuck or dead and whether it symbolized racism, being a discordant black dot on highly structured white h...
