Scientists discover why supermarket tomatoes taste so bland

Scientists compared the genomes of 725 wild and cultivated tomatoes (a pan-genome) to the tomato genome that's used to represent all varieties. The representative genome was missing thousands of genes present in the pan-genome, including one that's responsible for imparting flavor to the vegetable.The good news is that breeders seem to have recently began selecting for flavor, so it's possible that store-bought tomatoes could soon start tasting better. None Ever wonder why those pale-orange toma...

How DIVA makes Google Assistant more accessible

My 21 year old brother Giovanni loves to listen to music and movies. But because he was born with congenital cataracts, Down syndrome and West syndrome, he is non-verbal. This means he relies on our parents and friends to start or stop music or a movie.  Over the years, Giovanni has used everything from DVDs to tablets to YouTube to Chromecast to fill his entertainment needs. But as new voice-driven technologies started to emerge, they also came with a different set of challenges that required h...

James Baldwin’s ‘Giovanni’s Room’ Is A Virtuosic Treatment Of Shame

“Baldwin has captured his own early lifetime of shame and filtered it through the alembic of [narrator] David’s own cave-journey. It is a solid shame, thick, heavy, cold, enveloping like a darkening star.” – Literary Hub

Mantegna and Bellini – Berlin exhibition review

I may be at my happiest when I am looking at Venetian art. Bellini rates amongst my favourites alongside Giorgione and Lorenzo Lotto (an odd combination, but I have my reasons). Having missed the exhibit dedicated to Mantegna and Bellini in London last Fall, I took advantage of the opportunity to see its Berlin iteration on a recent business trip to the German city. Andrea Mantegna and Giovanni Bellini were almost the same age, and were brothers-in-law; the show is dedicated to their artistic re...

10 novels that brilliantly capture the American experience

Literature expands our ability to feel empathy and inspires compassion.These 10 novels tackle some facet of the American experience. The list includes a fictional retelling of the first Native American to graduate from Harvard, and hiding out in inner-city Newark.We call it "getting lost" in a novel, but what we find there is often more impactful than any nonfiction work can offer. Literature makes us more empathic and intelligent. Storytelling is how we bond, as tribes and a planet. A powerful...

Today's Read: The Chef's Secret by Crystal King

Imagine you were the apprentice to the Vatican chef and then inherited all of his recipes and other writings as well as his position. You would think your future was secure, but in sixteenth-century Rome, no one was safe from plotting and rivals and everyone had secrets. This is what Giovanni discovers after his uncle and mentor, the great chef Bartolomeo Scappi, dies in Rome on April 14, 1577. Word traveled fast at the Vaticano, even during the darkness of night. Within an hour of Barto...

Barry Jenkins on the Challenge of Adapting If Beale Street Could Talk

BEGIN SLIDESHOW Barry Jenkins on the challenge of adapting If Beale Street Could Talk Barry Jenkins has come to Houston.  Sitting in a meeting room at the Four Seasons, he’s touring the country with his follow up to 2016’s Oscar winning Moonlight, a sprawling, ambitious adaptation of James Baldwin’s “If Beale Street Could Talk.”  It’s a book and a film much like the director – thoughtful and complex – who sits in a red shirt and gold-rimmed glasses in some ways like a new Baldwin himself....

Object of Desire: The new Magni MV Agusta 750S Tributo

Any list of the world’s most desirable motorcycles is likely to include the MV Agusta 750S. If you fall under the spell of the iconic inline four, you’ll need at least $60,000 to put a good example in your garage. But now Magni, the storied Italian bike builder, offers an alternative: the MV Agusta 750S Tributo, a stunning homage crafted around the Brutale 800 drivetrain. Produced in the first half of the 1970s, the 750S was tricky to ride, three times the price of a Honda CB750 and more...

Jane Fortune’s Legacy and the Last Exhibit she Didn’t See

Jane Fortune is the strongest woman I have ever met. The founder of Advancing Women Artists, born 1942, succumbed recently to ovarian cancer after a long battle that gave her – and us – numerous “bonus” years in which she continued to research, write, and self-effacingly do everything to make women artists seen, when others might have opted for rest and retirement. Amongst her highest achievements, she was recognized, in 2015, with the Fiorino d’Oro by the City of Florence, making her an honoura...

A Simple Technique To Market More Effectively

Once you understand that marketing is a form of story-telling, you will no longer feel intimidated by the technicalities of it—like what advertising to use or what marketing strategy and tactics to deploy. Instead, viewing marketing as a form of storytelling will help you see through the fog of technical details. Let’s assume that you want to tell people about your new restaurant. How do you market it? It may be as simple as giving people who spend more than $25 at your restaurant Gildan t-shirt...

Fiorentina forward Giovanni Simeone out to emulate father's success

Fiorentina forward Giovanni Simeone said he has had to work hard to emerge from the "burdensome" shadows of his father, but believes his determination to have a similarly successful career. Simeone is heading into his second season with La Viola having scored 14 goals in 38 appearances last term, following a move from Genoa -- his first club in Italian football. His father, Diego, had three spells in Italy -- with Pisa, Inter Milan and Lazio -- and Giovanni admits his father's success means...

Philadelphia for hipsters – Cool things to do

FACT: Philadelphia is cool. You might think Philly is all about the history. And while it’s an important part of the city, there’s actually a lot more going on in Philadelphia today. Award-winning restaurants pop up regularly and big-name music festivals such as Jay Z’s Made in America Festival call the city home. But it’s the old-fashioned charm of historic streets and the colonial architecture, mixed with a resurgence in new ideas, creative companies, and a vibrant street life which make Phill...

Peru is an underrated surf spot

It may have something to do with the fact that its best surf spots are hard to get to — or that the water is cold, or that people equate it more with mountainous Inca trails — but when surfers are planning their trips, Peru doesn’t often come to mind. But look at a map and you’ll see a coastline longer than the US’s entire west coast. From the capital to distant fishing villages, Peru has gentle rollers, Pacific monsters, and every type of wave in between. While Peru is not on most surfers’ ...

Siena Duomo Floor: annual uncovering

Giorgio Vasari called the Siena Duomo floor “the most beautiful, big and magnificent that has ever been done.” Normally this floor is covered by carpets to protect it from the footsteps of many visitors, but it is uncovered for a few months each year, allowing us to get a view of the marble intarsia works of art that tell biblical narratives and represent allegories, and took centuries to complete. In 2013, this visit was made even more exceptional because you will be able to also see the wor...

The Latest In The Stuart Weitzman Sexual Harassment Case

Fishmonger buys 70-pound octopus just to set it free

This is Fred. Fred is free again. They may not be from space, but octopuses are still incredible, intelligent creatures. One California fishmonger in Morro Bay certainly thinks so. Earlier this month, Giovanni "Gio" DeGarimore, owner of Giovanni's Fish Market, bought a 70-pound octopus -- who has been named "Fred" -- for "a couple hundred dollars" just to release it back into the wild. And he says he'd do it again. The San Luis Obispo Tribune reports: DeGarimore said he didn't intend for hi...
