Travel: See where Mark Twain slept – and wrote his masterpieces

If you’re a Mark Twain enthusiast and up for an adventure, visit Hartford, Connecticut. It may not be the riverside town of Hannibal, Missouri, where he grew up, or the storied California gold country, but it was his home from 1874 to 1891 – and you can say you’ve stepped foot in the place where he penned “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer” and “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.” Guests are not allowed into Samuel Clemens’s home alone – he collected many valuable things over the years, as one can imagi...

A Talent for Organization

About 35 years ago, a psychic told me that I had a “talent for organization.”  I looked at her like she was crazy.  Did she not know that I was first and foremost a musician, finishing my coursework for a DMA in piano, with a minor in composition?  I was insulted and appalled, associating “organizational talent” with the corporate world of gray business suits, balance sheets, and indoor 9 to 5 jobs – everything I had rebelled against my entire life.  I could certainly imagine a future job teachi...

‘Brass Bonanza’ – The Sound of Hockey

I remember the first time I heard “Brass Bonanza.” It was while I was playing NHL 94 on my Sega Genesis, something I wasted a lot of time doing as a kid. If I wasn’t outside playing hockey in the driveway, I was inside trying to master the wrap around move (you know the one) against the pixelated versions of Patrick Roy or Ed Belfour. I can still hear the sound of the 8-bit crowd cheering and booing (they mostly booed when I played). What I also used to love about that game was the organ that pl...

The art of microbiology

Sir Alexander Fleming famously wrote that “one sometimes finds what one is not looking for”. The story of Fleming’s serendipitous discovery of penicillin in the 1920s is familiar to most microbiologists. While the Scottish scientist and his family were on vacation, a fungal contaminant spread across – and subsequently killed – a lawn of bacteria growing on agar plates from one of his experiments. Fleming’s meticulous bookkeeping and astute observations of this chance event paved the way for the ...

What Does Nick Holden Trade Mean for Paul Postma?

The dominos are starting to fall. When the Boston Bruins traded Rob O’Gara and a 2018 third-round draft pick to the New York Rangers for veteran defender Nick Holden, they made it clear that depth will be important for a long postseason run. It wasn’t the big swing many expected with the team being reportedly interested in Ryan McDonagh and with a trade for the elite defender making sense, but it was a move that solidified the Bruins depth beyond their top-seven defense options. Nick Holden has...

George Washington and eighteenth century masculinity

We want George Washington—the President of all Presidents, the Man of all Men—to be a certain way. We want him to be an unalloyed male outdoing, singlehandedly, all the other competitors. We want him strong and rude, rough and rugged, athletic and hypersexualized, a chiseled torso, a Teddy Roosevelt, a Tarzan, and a John Wayne: “a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do.” The notion that muscular and athletic bodies must define the perennial essence of masculinity has been debated, and increasing...
