A History of Land Art in the American West, Part III

Source: The Center for Land Use Interpretation. As installation begins at the Texas site for Long Now’s monumental 10,000 Year Clock, it’s worth taking a step back to examine the Clock’s larger artistic context and its place in the history of Land Art in the American West. Long Now’s staff and many of the individuals working on the project and serving on our board have drawn inspiration for the 10,000 Year Clock, and its placement in the remote landscape of West Texas, from these Land A...

the north island report: alert bay, eagles, and our first ontario visitors (photos to follow)

When we moved to Port Hardy, I was sure that none of our Ontario friends would ever visit. It's so far away, and not an easy place to travel to. I was so happy to be wrong! Two sets of close friends have reason to be in Vancouver this year, and are adding on some Vancouver Island vacation, including staying with us for a few days. This makes me so happy!Our friends [email protected] and sM were here this past week. The timing was a bit mad -- our first days with the full pack of five -- but it was also very fo...

Florida: Protection Of Church Property Bill Killed Again

Opinion by Marion Hammer Florida: Protection Of Church Property Bill Killed Again Florida – -(AmmoLand.com)- Once again the Florida Legislature has turned a deaf ear to the pleas of ministers, church administrators and church members. Churches have repeatedly – for over 3 years – prayed and urged the legislature to correct the provision in Florida law that usurps the right of churches to provide safety and security on their property. While the Florida House listened and passed legislation r...

Joe Biden Has to Do More Than Name-Drop Obama to Win Black Voters

Sean Rayford/GettyFormer Vice President Joe Biden’s initial pitch to Democratic voters was aimed squarely at the Rust Belt working class, but on a weekend trip through South Carolina, the early frontrunner for the party’s presidential nomination pivoted to courting black voters in the Palmetto State, highlighting his role in the Obama administration and warning of voting restrictions that hark back to the days of Jim Crow.“Last year, 24 states introduced or enacted at least 70 bills to curtail t...

Video Premiere: Westmoreland “The Sparrow”

When it comes to the music of John Westmoreland, founder of the band that bears his surname, there’s a lot more to what meets the eye or ears. He was born and raised in North Carolina, and with long locks and a patchy beard, he would not look too out of place on stage with Band of Horses or The Black Crowes. But yet, the singer/songwriter of Finnish heritage studied Jazz and Classical Composition at Berklee College of Music before becoming a founding member and lead guitarist for the West-Africa...

A startup just raised $27 million to make a new kind of painkiller using technology from Harvard scientists, as the race to replace opioids heats up

America is in the midst of a deadly opioid epidemic. There's a need for better pain drugs that aren't addictive.

Kay Ivey will enable Auburn University to determine if an oilseed crop can be successfully grown and marketed in Alabama as a biofuel and become another cash crop for the state’s farmers.

The glitz of 'entrepreneurship porn' leads startup founders to make fatal business mistakes. Here's how to avoid them

The rise of "entrepreneurship porn" is luring many ambitious young Americans into launching their own companies, when they might be better off joining a more established organization. If they do decide to found a company, these entrepreneurs should at least be adequately prepared, instead of simply diving in headfirst. Entrepreneurship isn't just about risk-taking and passion.

The Spirit Of Mortification

Presence of God – I come back to Your feet, O Crucified Jesus, desirous of understanding more thoroughly the spirit of mortification. MEDITATION The spirit of mortification has more than a purely physical aspect of mortification; it also includes renunciation of the ego, the will, and the understanding. Just as in our body and in our senses we have unruly tendencies toward the enjoyment of material things, so also in our ego there are inordinate tendencies toward self-assertion. Love of...

Meghan Markle's family: The diplomat uncle, the yoga teacher mother and the cannabis-growing nephew

It's not every day the meeting of a make-up artist and a lighting director sets the scene for a royal love story, but that's exactly what happened in Meghan Markle's case. The now-retired American actress, who is expecting her first child in a few weeks time, didn't come from a similar upbringing to her royal-ready Middleton sister-in-law. The Duchess of Sussex (born Rachel Meghan Markle) was born in Los Angeles on August 4, 1981 and quite literally grew up in Hollywood.

5 Reasons I Love Boring Businesses

by Dan Abatte, co-founder of 81-c “Making it” is relative. In my 20+ years of entrepreneurship, I’ve seen a big change in how success is defined. Entrepreneurs nowadays want to boast about brand-name investors, huge rounds of funding, and a team of high-skill employees. Are you fresh out of Y Combinator with $1 million in funding at a $10 million valuation? You must be the man (or woman)! Did the former head of the SEC just join your board of directors?

Trying To Find Affordable Child Care Is Not The Job I Wanted

In the past month, I’ve spent close to 60 hours trying to secure child care for my two-year-old son. This is not the kind of job I ever wanted. It’s a high-stakes, unpaid position that often leaves me quite literally with a bellyache. But as the keeper of the family calendar and bank account and the mother who works from home, this task inevitably falls on me.I would generally describe my partner as supportive, but he has done very little to help with this process, balking the one time I asked ...

‘Happy!’ Showrunner Brian Taylor Says Season 2 is Ten Times Crazier Than the First Season [Interview]

When your film credits include the Crank movies, Gamer, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance,  and Mom and Dad , it’s hard to imagine getting any crazier than director Brian Taylor already has. But the first season of Taylor’s Syfy series Happy! featured kidnapped children, a three-headed dog, a killer Santa Claus, and the alcoholic corrupt cop as the good guy. Based on the comic by Grant Morrison, Happy! is back for a second season and Taylor promises it’s 10 times crazier. Nick...

Ryan Coogler has only directed three feature films, but he’s already attained the success very few filmmakers ever attain in their careers. Coogler not only revived a dead franchise for a new generation (Creed, which made people remember the Rocky series wasn’t always meant to be American Cold War propaganda) and has scored one of the biggest artistic successes of the most popular genre in the world (Black Panther, the first Marvel film nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.) He’s made a star out o...
