Flora of the Silk Road

Having walked the Hindu Kush with Eric Newby I decided to stay put and travel the Silk Road with Colin Thubron. Firstly can I say that 'walk' and 'short' are the ultimate and intentional irony in Eric Newby's A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush (which means Indian Killer apparently) because Eric and Hugh climb, scramble, limp, hobble and generally stagger their way around and I was quite relieved to be sitting in an armchair. It was a short hop for me to hit the Silk Road, something that has always...

How do storms and hurricanes get their names?

Thank Goodness for TV Superheroes

Superhero movies have become the easiest way to make a blockbuster. The Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe have 31 released films between them, with at least a dozen more on the way. This glut of superhero cinema has burned out even some of the most tried-and-true comic book fans. While DC’s universe occasionally has a more adult edge, the MCU has bombarded viewers with family-friendly, epic storytelling for over a decade. Comic book fans wanting a more mature look into w...

History of Alphabetical Order.

Joe Moran writes for the Guardian about a new book by Judith Flanders, A Place For Everything: The Curious History of Alphabetical Order, which sounds like an interesting read: One of the many fascinations of Judith Flanders’s book is that it reveals what a weird, unlikely creation the alphabet is. Writing has been invented independently at least three times in different parts of the world. The alphabet was invented only once – over 3,000 years ago, in Egypt’s Western desert, along a road used b...

‘Star Wars Resistance’ Sets the Stage for the Series Finale With “Rebuilding the Resistance”

I’ve written before that I found it concerning that there is so little time now to flesh left out the major conflicts of Star Wars Resistance. Which is why “Rebuilding the Resistance,” which can be considered a penultimate chapter before the two-parter series finale, pulls off an impressive feat as it picks up on the slack of more underwhelming developments of the past season. Right off the bat, this episode sets off the fissure in the status quo. Kaz (Christopher Sean) is perplexed by ...

Prudish renters object to the "Picasso" "art work."

David Sedaris has a new story in The New Yorker, "Hurricane Season/On storms, repairs, and family." His beach house on Emerald Island in North Carolina was destroyed by hurricane Florence. The house next to it survived the storm, and that's his house too. His partner Hugh bought when it came on the market to prevent somebody else from tearing it down and putting up a McMansion. The house was purchased "with everything in it," but the artwork on the walls was horrible beach house junk, so Hugh, a...

10 Tips From Influencer Marketing’s Hidden 1,000-Year History

When it comes to influencer marketing, we usually think of it as a fairly recent or even cutting-edge innovation. However, when you consider what’s at its heart, influencer marketing’s roots date back well over 1,000 years. The way successful professionals practice influencer marketing is undoubtedly innovative and thoroughly modern, yet for more than a millennia we’ve had the trust, expertise, and wisdom that meld together to allow one person to hold influence over another. There’s a reason...

Canon EOS RP Review

Words and photos by James Leynse The right-priced CanonThe introduction of a new Canon camera is often received with a burst of excitement, rapidly followed by a Bronx cheer of deflation as the camera is picked apart by Internet reviewers. If you follow camera news on the Web, and I admit to this guilty pleasure, it’s easy to be left with the impression that, once again, Canon has abandoned the needs of photographers to the demands of market segmentation and the goal of generating maximum profi...

The Very Best Camera Deal In the Entire Universe Right at This Moment

Big investmentThe X-H1 appears to be an example of the "928 paradigm." The Porsche 928 was introduced in 1978 to replace the aging and technologically questionable 911, which had been very popular as a status symbol during the 1960s and early '70s. But sales had declined as the '70s wore on. Flush with cash, ...
