The Eucharistically Shaped Life

A few weeks ago, in the midst of the vicissitudes of this particular winter, our parish had our annual meeting, our first together. The meeting was centered within the liturgy of the Eucharist: We opened the meeting before the procession, we announced the slates of candidates at the announcements in the midst of the service, and we shared communion with each other around the altar rail. We sang the recessional hymn and removed to our parish hall, where we then shared a potluck meal much in the ...

Pacing for Growth

Whether you’re running a race or running a company, pacing is everything. Go too fast and you’ll burn yourself out—too slow and you’re left in the dust. So how can leaders find the right speed? Growth expert Alison Eyring, who is also a long-distance runner and triathlete, found the answer in endurance training and shared those findings in her book, Pacing for Growth. Alison utilizes her background in endurance training to explain how to apply the same principles to leadership. She brings over 3...

An IPad Convert?

I hate learning to use new devices. And that explains my multi-year resistance to buying an iPad. (That, plus my carpal tunnel-wrists, which make any small keyboard an extra challenge.) Anyway, Mark’s been an iPad devotee for many years. And a few weeks ago, I finally allowed him to talk me into buying one. (A great Amazon sale price, combined with the daunting prospect of countless hours away from my laptop during a then upcoming Dallas trip to see Mark’s ailing mother, was enough to convince m...

A Honda CB350 restomod built by a jet aircraft mechanic

It’s quite rare for a CB cafe racer to land in the Bike EXIF inbox these days. And we politely turn down most that do. But this CB350 from New Jersey went straight to the top of the pile: it’s an absolutely state of the art restomod, and so beautifully finished we’d almost be scared to ride it. It comes from Merlin Cycleworks, which is run by 56-year-old Mark Kouri. Mark’s been an aircraft mechanic for over 30 years—repairing jets for United Airlines—and you can see his attention to detail...

Mark Zuckerberg wasn't warned about the worst crisis in Facebook's history, and it points to something rotten in the firm's culture

Facebook was roasted in a devastating report by British lawmakers on Monday. Among its findings, a British parliamentary committee revealed that three senior Facebook executives failed to warn CEO Mark Zuckerberg about the Cambridge Analytica data breach. It's not the first time Zuckerberg has been accused of not having a handle on Facebook's problems, while a former exec said last week that Facebook's "Game of Thrones" culture could make it hard for execs to admit fault. Lawmakers said it was...

God is Good (Genesis 50) Lesson #10 in What is God Like?

When you think about what you want your children to learn at church, what’s the first thing that pops into your mind? We’ve all been there. With so much truth in the Bible where do we start? Why not start where the Bible starts. No, not necessarily creation, but GOD. Who is God? What is God like? What does God do? “The highest science, the loftiest speculation, the mightiest philosophy, which can ever engage the attention of a child of God, is the name, the nature, the person, the work, the doi...

Comment on blue sky bran muffins by Mark

Just made these this morning (made them once previously years ago), and still love them! Substituted 1/2 cup white whole wheat flour for 1/2 the AP flour, and they were perfect. Rustic, tasty, not sweet but so satisfying! Great with a morning cup of coffee.

The Best & Boldest Beauty Looks From London Fashion Week AW19

From brushed up brows to simple center parts, fresh skin, and subtly glossy lips, pared down simplicity is usually the go-to at London Fashion Week. But last season, the city was turned on its head with glitter-splashed eyeliner glimmering from the catwalk at Halpern, slapdash pastel eyeshadow at Erdem, and "troll" inspired hair embellished with rhinestone pins at Ashley Williams.It looks like Autumn/Winter 2019 is shaping up to be bigger and better, however. Thanks to makeup artists such as Mi...

WIRTW #542 (the “Scared. Ashamed. Crippled.” edition)

A few days ago, Mark Goldstein, an attorney at Reed Smith, tweeted me (and others) this:   If you read on thing this week, read Mark's article, 'Scared. Ashamed. Crippled.': How One Lawyer Overcame Living With Depression in Big Law. We are in the middle of a mental health crisis in America. The more we talk openly about it, the more it becomes de-stigmatized, and the more comfortable those suffering will be to come forward and seek the help they need.

'Iron Man 3' Finds Its Hero in Crisis

None One question loomed over Iron Man 3 (Shane Black, 2013) from its inception: Why doesn't he just call the Avengers? After all, Tony Stark/Iron Man had just appeared in the biggest superhero film of all time, a team-up consisting of him, Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, and the combined resources of SHIELD (including Nick Fury, Black Widow and Hawkeye). How could the filmmakers devise a serious, dangerous scenario for the character in which he would not call his super-friends? Longtime comic...

Love and Capes to Return!

Yesterday, on Valentine’s Day, Thom Zahler announced that he would be releasing more of his superhero romantic comedy Love and Capes, and I was thrilled. I’m a huge fan, so much so that it was one of the four titles I picked for my site header image. The story of Mark and Abby has progressed from revealing his secret identity through marriage plans, starting life together, and expecting a baby. It’s always been funny, heartwarming, and charming, as you can [...]

In a Parallel Universe

Don’t tell me about the winter storm that swept across America and Canada. Trust me, I know. First, I received an email from the school board: “Gee, don’t even think about sending your kid to school, are you crazy or what?” (Okay, the official wording was “Alert – OCDSB Schools and Buildings CLOSED). An email from Mark’s school followed: “No, but like seriously, we’re not taking your kid, good luck, eh!” (I may be paraphrasing; the official object was “URGENT: Schools Closed Feb. 13th, heavy sno...

2019 No Nonsense General Class Study Guide: Signals and Emisssions

Carriers and modulation: AM; FM, single and double sideband, modulation envelope, overmodulation Modulation is the process by which we convey information over a radio link, and amplitude modulation (AM) is perhaps the most basic type of modulation. When we amplitude modulate a signal, what we’re doing is varying the amplitude of what we call the RF carrier signal in proportion to the amplitude of an audio signal. This, in turn, varies the instantaneous power level of the signal. The modulation ...

Floor Talk: A Conversation with Mark Crossfield

One of the things we wanted to accomplish at this years’ PGA Show was to record genuine conversations. Most of the videos that come out of The Show can be summed up as “We stuck a microphone in a guy’s face and listened as he repeated the same thing he said 5 minutes ago when somebody else stuck a microphone in his face.” Fascinating. Rather than add to the pile of meh, we sought to capture authentic conversations. No mics in faces, our cameras lurking as inconspicuously as possible in the backg...

The Seed Slump

I have written a bit about this topic in recent years, at the end of 2017, and again when the 2018 numbers started showing up. What has happened over the last five years in venture capital is the seed boom stalled out, the late stage market exploded, and the traditional venture capital business (Series A and Series B) largely remained the same except round sizes, valuations, and fund sizes have all gone up. Mark Suster posted a great analysis last night of why the seed stage market has sta...

Real restaurants from TV and movies

Restaurants, cafes, bakeries , bars, and the like are often a vital part of a story’s plot. Maybe it’s where a group of friends have coffee and spend time together or where two characters plan a murder. We all wish places like Central Perk from Friends existed or that we could visit The Three Broomsticks in Harry Potter for a Butterbeer. Unfortunately, while shows and movies use a myriad of filming locations all over the globe, not all of these are accessible — or even real — for fans to visit...

Edmonton Oilers 50-Goal Scorers

During the 1980s, the Edmonton Oilers epitomized offense. From the 1981-82 season through 1985-86, they scored an average of 5.29 goals per game. They peaked in the 1983-84 season, putting up a whopping 446 goals in 80 games, a 5.58 goals-per-game average. Opposing teams couldn’t stop them, but could only try to limit the damage by containing them. It rarely worked. The team featured phenomenal talent­: Wayne Gretzky, Mark Messier, Glenn Anderson, Jari Kurri, Paul Coffey, and Grant Fuhr in goal....
