How Silence Can Work in Your Favor

Silence works exceptionally well in many interpersonal situations. That’s especially true, for example, in a problem solving or conflict-oriented situation. In such contexts, strategic silence is often one of your best approaches to resolution. It’s an interpersonal behavior used when talk is expected. Someone has a pressing reason to talk, but does not talk and does not explain their silence. So, when a person violates expectations by silence, the other’s attention is riveted on the silence. It...

Whicker: College football’s playoff expansion confounds

The most engaging, involving and dramatic regular seasons in sports will disappear in 2026. No longer will you begin your Saturday by flipping on the TV at 9 a.m. and watch the dominoes fall until 11 p.m., from Columbus to Gainesville to Norman to Eugene. No longer will every game count. Consistency will be shelved. Health will be devalued. And, in all likelihood, the end of the road will feature the same crimson, orange and scarlet suspects. The College Football Playoff has totally erased what ...

Alexander: Clippers’ task is not impossible, but it’s not easy

There are parallels, and there’s one important difference. The Clippers are down 2-0 in a series, again. They’re playing a team with a dynamic player who demands special attention, again. This time they’re coming home after losing two on the road, but those losses were to the team with the NBA’s best regular-season record. They do have a one-game winning streak at Staples Center, and the odds are it’s going to sound like a library compared to what they’ve faced in Salt Lake City this week, which...

Alexander: In Utah, they don’t limit the noise for Jazz games

Home-court advantage, historically the Holy Grail for any NBA team with designs on going far in the playoffs, is yet another aspect of the game that has been knocked askew in 2021 even as Pandemic Basketball transitions into Post-Pandemic Basketball. The ground rules remained the same as they’ve always been during the regular season: You win more games, you earn that extra home game if needed. Unlike last season, when all of the playoff hopefuls were shepherded into the Orlando bubble, there was...

New Ship: American Countess

? New Ship: American Countess In March of 2021, our friends at the American Queen Steamboat Company christened their newest ship, the American Countess.

Jazz take exception to Clippers’ path to playoffs

SALT LAKE CITY — Remember how the Clippers backpedaled into the No. 4 playoff seed with regular-season-closing losses to Houston and Oklahoma City, the teams at the bottom of the Western Conference standings? Utah Jazz coach Quin Snyder does. He gave the public a glimpse at the Jazz’s bulletin board on Tuesday morning, when he told reporters: “Obviously, we’re a matchup that the Clippers felt like was an advantageous matchup for them.” At the time, Clippers coach Tyronn Lue said it was a matter ...

Who Designed the 1980s Aesthetic?: Meet the Memphis Group, the Designers Who Created the 80s Iconic Look

For those who remember the 1980s, it can feel like they never left, so deeply ingrained have their designs become in the 21st century. But where did those designs themselves originate? Vibrant, clashing colors and patterns, bubbly shapes; “the geometric figures of Art Deco,” writes Sara Barnes at My Modern Met, “the color palette of Pop Art, and the 1950s kitsch” that inspired designers of all kinds came from a movement of artists who called themselves the Memphis Group, after Bob Dylan’...
