Alexander: No. 1 UCLA visits the mecca of softball this weekend — Cathedral City

The best team in college softball will be determined in early June in Oklahoma City. But for a hint of who that might turn out to be, a trip to Cathedral City this weekend may be in order. This is the 17th year of the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, a tournament that was originally intended to provide a West Coast showcase but has turned into softball’s largest event outside of the Women’s College World Series. It began with 16 teams in 2004. Beginning Thursday and running through Sunday, 30 tea...

In Praise of Unremarkable Music: Part 1

Why did you start writing music? Now, what do you hope to accomplish? This year? This decade? By the end of your life? In response to these questions, you might envision your music’s success according to a variety of measures: The awards, press, and publicity it receives. The size of audiences it attracts. The money it makes. The joy you had in creating it. The degree to which it meets a performer’s need or fits their skill level. The experience shared by those in the room when it is performed....

Best places to travel in April 2020

Despite an old adage about April showers, the fourth month of the year is really when life starts to return to much of the planet. The long winter has defrosted and left with it cherry blossoms, baseball, and plenty of end-of-winter parties, combining to make this one of the most enticing months to get out and see the world. But the best places to travel in April aren’t always the most obvious, where festivals you may never have heard of offer better times than well-worn destinations. So read...

Watch Kirk Douglas on the Dick Cavett show in 1992

The recently departed Kirk Douglas was 75 when he appeared on The Dick Cavett show to promote his autobiography. Douglas told Cavett that his friend John Wayne thought he was a "sissy" for playing Van Gogh in Lust for Life. "Kirk, how can you play this sniveling weakling who commits suicide," Wayne told Douglas after they watched a screening of the movie together. Douglas also told Cavett that Brando ruined many actors who tried to imitate Brando, who was, of course, inimitable. All in all, D...

Remembering Kirk Douglas, One of the Last Surviving Links to Old Hollywood

You could draw a caricature of his face with little more than a hearty stroke for the jawline and a few exclamatory dots: two for the piercing eyes and one for that magnificent, trademark dimple. Kirk Douglas, who died on Feb. 5 at age 103, defined the ideal manly-man persona of the 1950s, often giving electrically appealing performances while playing less-than-exemplary characters. Douglas’s most famous role may be that of the slave who became a rebel leader in ancient Rome, in Stanley Kub...

The Benefits of Helping Your Business Competition—Yes, Really

By Alex M H Smith Generally speaking, what’s bad for our competitors is good for us. Any slip by them—any scandal, piece of mismanagement, or boardroom turmoil—we’ll tend to welcome with glee, seeing it as an opportunity to take a few slivers of precious market share from them before the dust settles. All sounds pretty reasonable right? What if I were to tell you that this perspective, common sense as it may seem, is actually built on a flawed assumption and may not be the right way to think abo...
