Locked Out of Paris

Article by Secrets of Paris Correspondent Anne Daignault Anne with Heather at an apéro on the banks of the Seine in 2019.

Four months away from Paris and friends seemed an eternity, but Florida’s warm weather, time with Dennis, and our funky cottage in the art community of Gulfport beckoned. News about coronavirus began to appear on our radar screen in February, soon after we ar...

'In Japan people kept asking me for autographs. I had bodyguards, it was crazy' - Meet the rising star of French racing

Among those looking forward to the start of the French Flat season is Mickaelle Michel, the female jockey who returned from a winter stint in Japan in April with her reputation enhanced after riding a record number of winners for a foreign jockey riding for the country’s National Racing Association. Two years ago in France – a nation which has been slow to embrace female jockeys, hence the 1.5kg allowance to encourage trainers to use them – she became the first female to become champion apprenti...

Argument analysis: Justices debate constitutionality of funding condition by phone

In 2013, the Supreme Court ruled, by a vote of 6-2, that a provision in a federal law that requires organizations receiving funds to combat HIV/AIDS to “have a policy explicitly opposing prostitution and sex trafficking” violates the First Amendment when applied to nongovernmental organizations based in the United States. This morning the justices heard oral argument in a case asking them to decide whether the enforcement of the same provision against the foreign affiliates of U.S.-based NGOs al...

International LGBTQ films and TV

Let’s go on a gaycation. We can fall in love in Italy or have a San Francisco affair. We can don our best drag for an Australian road trip, or visit small-town America to shake up the local scene. If lounging by a lake in Provence is more your style, we can do that, too, though Miami’s waters are far warmer this time of year. Better yet — let’s do it all. We don’t need a train, plane, or automobile to get there. As long as you’ve got a secure WiFi connection and a device that can stream cont...

Meet the World’s First Known Author: Sumerian High Priestess Enheduanna

Watchers of Westworld will have heard a character in the most recent episode utter the line, “for the first time, history has an author.” It’s as loaded a bit of dialogue as the series has dropped on fans, not least for its suggestion that in the absence of a god we should be better off with an all-knowing machine. The line might bend the ear of literary scholars for another reason. The idea of authorship is a complicated one. In one sense, maybe, everyone is an author of history, and in...

Switch eSCRAMBLER: the best-looking electric bike yet?

Electric motorcycles still seem like a brave new world in some quarters, but the technology is maturing fast and the novelty is wearing off. Shanghai-based Kiwi expat Matthew Waddick has been building street-legal electric customs for years now, and knows this well. “Electric bikes are not new anymore,” he says. “You can’t wow people just by being electric—you need to do better than that.” So Matthew’s ramped up his operations, set up a production company called Switch, and just released t...

Urban Junglist: A tiger-striped ZZR600 from Holland

Some folks feel the urge to ride a different bike every few months. Others stay true to their trusty steeds for decades. But even if you’re the monogamous type, after a few years you’ll probably get the itch to spice things up a bit. That’s what happened with this very striking Kawasaki ZZR600 from the Netherlands. It’s owned by a lady called Gina, who bought her Ninja 16 years ago—as her first motorcycle. She felt like a change, but didn’t want to lose too much of the original design or char...

The truth will out

So, I have at least one more post to make with regard to the news story released over the weekend that ARRL CEO Howard Michel, WB2ITX, was fired.

I replied: I expect that there’s more to this than whether or not WB2ITX is...
