Startups Weekly: A new era for consumer tech

TechCrunch is out hunting for bright spots in the startup world as we all come to grips with the pandemic — particularly where checks are actually being written despite everything. D2C is back to the future First up this week, we surveyed top direct-to-consumer investors, and they seemed pretty optimistic despite the struggles of some sector leaders. Here’s Lightspeed Venture Partners Nicole Quinn, for example, on investor activity versus current opportunity: I would argue it is too weak as in...

Day 2 of 21daysOfLockdown

Today is Day 2 of the lockdown. And like yesterday, I cooked for myself (once, made a large pot, to be eaten multiple times during the day), did the bartans, did some safai and then after all that tried to get some work done. And no, I did not get a lot of work done. This is probably the first time I am doing all these chores by myself and no, these are not fun. These are not for me. Of course all the respect to people that manage all these AND other things alongside. I cant. Not even to save my...

ProPublica is a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative newsroom. Sign up for The Big Story newsletter to receive stories like this one in your inbox.

Living In Fear Of The Rona

By now a significant number of us have experienced the self-imposed hardship and uncertainty of being sick but unsure if it’s the rona. TPM Reader DS writes in from Seattle: Hi Josh. I was just reading your piece about testing, and thought to contribute a personal anecdote about what widespread testing would mean for people and families with relatively mild cases. We are a family of four in Seattle, Washington, with 10- and 6-year-old boys. A week ago on March 17, my wife came down with a c...

Wheelgun Wednesday: Making A Revolver In The Comfort Of Your Home

Most wheelgun enthusiasts typically settle on buying revolvers made by manufacturers that have been in the business for years, decades, or even from the last couple of centuries.  However, one Redditor named Josh decided to try making a revolver for himself for a change.  Homemade revolvers aren’t that common, but they are probably most observed […] Read More … The post Wheelgun Wednesday: Making A Revolver In The Comfort Of Your Home appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

A Youth Backlash?

I wrestled with whether or not to publish this note from TPM Reader CJ for reasons that will likely be obvious. I decided to because I think the note shows beliefs, feelings, lived experiences rumbling under the surface of our society. They are good to hear even if we disagree with them or are offended or even angered by them. Let me say first of all that I think there’s some factual issue over the danger that COVID-19 poses to young people – and here let’s define ‘young’ as people between 25...

In It For The Long Haul

As folks struggle to get their heads around how long the fight to “flatten the curve” might have to last to be truly effective, Josh Kovensky has a new story out framing up how to think about an essential paradox of the fight against COVID-19. All else being equal, a successful mitigation strategy will tend to require sustaining extreme measures for longer than if we simply endure a short, fast, and brutal blitz of cases that overwhelm the health care system. As Josh puts it, it’s the difference...

'Please only serious responses': Jared Kushner reportedly looked to a Facebook group to crowdsource ideas to stop coronavirus

A doctor reportedly posted in a Facebook group for physicians, asking for ideas on how to stop coronavirus and adding, "I have direct channel to person now in charge at White House." The post was made by Kurt Kloss on behalf of his son-in-law's brother, Jared Kushner, according to POLITICO. President Donald Trump has assigned Kushner a leading role in developing the White House's response to the COVID-19 outbreak. After gathering responses in the Facebook group, Kloss reportedly posted that "J...

‘The Magicians’ Takes a Bittersweet Stroll Toward the Series Finale With “Purgatory”

These last few episodes of this season’s The Magicians have taken on a bittersweet tinge after the news that Syfy hasn’t picked up the show for a sixth season. After last night’s episode, ironically called “Purgatory,” there are only two episodes left before what we now know will be the series finale on April 1. On the bright side, we can savor what we have left (including a musical episode that co-creator Sera Gamble has called the craziest one yet ), and be thankful that the show’s five...

Q&A With Rising Baltimore Based Hip Hop Artist KennyOffTh3Henny

For all the readers who don’t know, is KennyOffTh3Henny your real name or your artist name? Kenny’s my actual nickname. The Off The Henny part (stylized as OffTh3Henny) was added since it had a better ring to it than my true full name. How long have you been making music? Any specific influences? I’ve been playing guitar since I was 8 and started recording some of my rock music covers and originals when I was 13. I made my first full-length rock album as a senior project in high school, but onc...

Steal This Look: A Remodelista’s Minimalist Galley Kitchen in Brooklyn Heights

When my husband, Josh, and I moved to Brooklyn Heights a couple of years ago, we were lucky enough to find a parlor floor flat that hadn’t been updated for a couple of decades, so it was a blank slate. The kitchen in particular needed work, so we called on our friend Malachi Connolly, a New York/Cape Cod-based architect, preservationist, and longtime board member of the Cape Cod Modern House Trust to oversee the renovation. Here’s how to get the look: Photography by Matthew Williams, with stylin...

We investigated the sexual misconduct of Sherry Pie. What we found was a decade of lies & video.

Following allegations and of fraud and sexual misconduct against RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Sherry Pie—real name Joey Gugliemelli, 27—as well as his apparent admission of guilt and subsequent disqualification from the reality show competition, questions remain as to how long and how widespread Gugliemelli’s con game reached. Queerty launched its own investigation after initial allegations were made by actor Ben Shimkus that Gugliemelli had posed as a casting agent in order to trick the actor...

For Better or Worse: a Lesson in Inspiration

A couple years ago, on my twentieth wedding anniversary, I tried to keep breathing. I inherited my mother’s brown eyes, my father’s broad, flat feet, and from both of them, poor lungs. Asthma.   I gather my lips around my inhaler, like a scuba diver on dry land, inhaling two puffs of albuterol while I hold in the medicine that makes my world expand again. I hold my breath to breathe again. I am a woman who has learned to pay attention to inspiration, breathing in as deeply as possible to sta...

A Look Back at the Anaheim Ducks’ 2011 Draft

With 14 games remaining in the regular season, the Anaheim Ducks aren’t mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, but it’s safe to say the season is over. They currently sit 27th in the NHL, and after drafting ninth overall last June, they are primed for another top-10 pick on June 26 in Montreal. Related: 2008 NHL Draft – 5 Forgotten Picks Until recently, the Ducks had to do most of their damage late in the first round and beyond. In fact, they’ve only had three top 10 picks in ...

Ducks’ Hampus Lindholm not returning any time soon

IRVINE — Hampus Lindholm crashed-landed so heavily into the boards during the Ducks’ Feb. 25 game at Honda Center that he looked like one of those crash-test dummies tumbling out of control. The defenseman had been battling for a loose puck with Leon Draisaitl of the Edmonton Oilers before falling awkwardly. His back, shoulder and head took the brunt of his second-period spill. Lindholm sat out for the fifth consecutive game Friday against the Toronto Maple Leafs because of multiple upper-body i...

Ice Pick: A 1973 Penton ready for the snow

Mention of a themed custom motorcycle conjures visions of bad reality TV choppers, and sends us into convulsions. But this scrambler is a theme bike with a big difference: It’s so tastefully executed, we didn’t realize there was a theme. Until builder Chris Tope revealed the story behind it. Chris was asked by motorcycle photographer Michael Lichter to build a bike for his ‘What’s the Skinny’ exhibition at the Sturgis rally. Chris already had a suitable and very skinny donor to hand—a beat-up...

‘The Magicians’ Delivers an Episode for Longtime Fans With “Cello Squirrel Daffodil”

There’s a lot of Chatwin action in this week’s episode of The Magicians, “Cello Squirrel Daffodil,” and not the usual appreciated cameo we usually get each season from the time-turning hedge witch, Jane Chatwin. One newly introduced Chatwin we spend time with is Plum Chatwin, Penny23’s traveler student who reappears in Brakebills three weeks after she first disappeared trying to find the source of the mysterious signal she keeps hearing. Plum’s time away from Brakebills is a blur—all she rem...
