Plateau des Glières and Above

In addition to the paved Col des Glières (1440m), this ride visits two gravel cols: Passage de la Gloire (1350m) and Col de l’Ovine (1786m). This was my first adventure not starting from home in quite some time. It felt great. I have written many times about Plateau des Glières. See this link that explains five more rides (the two paved sides plus three superb unpaved rides). In that 2017 article I admonish Prudhomme for never including Glières in the Tour de France. Now, three years lat...

An Immaculate Copy of Leonardo’s The Last Supper Digitized by Google: View It in High Resolution Online

Romantic poets told us that great art is eternal and transcendent. They also told us everything made by human hands is bound to end in ruin and decay. Both themes were inspired by the rediscovery and renewed fascination for the arts of antiquity in Europe and Egypt. It was a time of renewed appreciation for monumental works of art, which happened to coincide with a period when they came under considerable threat from looters, vandals, and invading armies. One work of art that appeared on the it...

The complete Reggie Bush-USC timeline: From Heisman to investigation to return to Troy

Reggie Bush’s history with USC is as long and complicated as it is exhilarating and nostalgic. Almost 15 years have passed since Bush played his last game as a Trojan, and a decade has gone by since the announcement of the NCAA sanctions that kept USC from associating itself with Bush. But with the news on Wednesday that USC is welcoming the former Heisman Trophy-winning tailback back to campus, you might need a refresher on how exactly we reached this point. So here’s a timeline of Bush’s histo...

Notre-Dame undergoes risky 'open-heart surgery' as workers remove melted scaffolding from roof

A high-risk operation likened to "open-heart surgery" has begun on the roof of Notre Dame cathedral to remove tons of mangled scaffolding that melted in last year's devastating fire and still threatens the building with collapse. Some 40,000 metal tubes weighing 200 tons had been erected atop the Gothic building to repair its spire and roof before the blaze last April. Most of the structure melted and fused in the intense heat, posing a fiendish conundrum to restoration workers. The spire an...

Five Things We Learned About Notre Dame Recruiting In May

Weddington's Will Shipley, but the nation's No. 38 player and No. 1 all-purpose back opted to stay closer to home and pick the Clemson Tigers.
