Barr Just Cost the Justice Department Its Prized Public-Corruption Fighter

The impact of Attorney General William Barr’s intervention in the Roger Stone sentencing won’t just be felt in the cases concerning President Donald Trump’s allies, current and former Justice Department officials warn. It’s cost the Justice Department one of its top public-corruption prosecutors at a time when public corruption is looking like a growth industry. That attorney is Jonathan Kravis. Kravis is the deputy chief of the fraud and public corruption section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office f...

This Week in Photography: Conversations on Conflict Photography

  I’m keeping it super-short today. (Like, for real.) If all goes well, as you read this, I’ll be on my way to Amsterdam to supervise printing of my first book. I’m a ball of nerves, if I’m being honest, but the upside is, I’ll have lots of new things to write about for you. Between the global panic over the corona virus outbreak, and the fact that I’m flying into a bomb cyclone hurricane, (Storm Dennis,) I think you’ll allow me a rare quickie. To balance the brevity, though, we’re going heavy. ...

Surprise: There’s Been A Rembrandt In Allentown, Pa. For 59 Years

The 1632 Portrait of a Young Woman was attributed to Rembrandt van Rijn when it was given to the Allentown Art Museum in 1961, but during the 1970s the attribution was changed to a student from the master’s studio. But after the painting was sent to a high-tech NYU lab in 2018 for “routine conservation,” scholars reconsidered. – Smithsonian Magazine

How Pushkin Became a Cat.

Ilya Vinitsky reports for NYU’s Jordan Russian Center (Part I, Part II) on the backstory of a surprisingly popular American cat name: At the tail end of 1934, when Gorky and Co. were defending the honor of the USSR’s national poet from bourgeois vulgarity, with the result that the eponymous Moscow café was deprived of its name, the famous Hollywood singer and actress Lilian Harvey (1906-1968) ran a notice in Los Angeles newspapers. Her blue- and brown-eyed white Persian cat, who went by the name...

Photo by Emilio Madrid-Kuser We’ve visited government buildings with less security than that of the Dolby Theatre, the Los Angeles mega-complex that plays home to the Academy Awards each year. In order to enter, we have to go through background checks with government IDs, get issued an Academy idea, scan it as we move from area to area, and always have an escort present when we do so. What we do for an interview! Amid all the furor backstage of the Dolby, surrounded by lights,...

10 Great Filmmakers Who Never Won the Academy Award for Best Director

The 92nd Academy Awards are almost upon us, and if there’s one certainty going into Oscar night, it’s that some worthy talent in some category will be overlooked in favor of a lesser talent. No nominee or winner is undeserving of recognition, but snubs are also an essential part of Oscar history and directors are not immune to them. In fact, some of the greatest directors of all time have gone their whole career without receiving a proper Best Director Oscar. Film is fundamentally a collaborati...

Google and Facebook turn their backs on undersea cable to China

Google and Facebook seem to have resigned themselves to losing part of the longest and highest profile internet cable they have invested in to date. In a filing with the Federal Communications Commission last week, the two companies requested permission to activate the Pacific Light Cable Network (PLCN) between the US and the Philippines and Taiwan, leaving its controversial Hong Kong and Chinese sections dormant. Globally, around 380 submarine cables carry over 99.5 percent of all transocean...

An Airbnb cofounder explained the strategy behind its success in China, a market where most US companies have failed

American tech companies have historically struggled in China, but Airbnb has had success there. Airbnb hoped Chinese travelers' experiences as guests would lead them to become hosts, Blecharczyk said in a talk hosted by NYU on Tuesday. The strategy seems to be working: Blecharczyk said two-thirds of stays by Chinese travelers are now within the country, while Airbnb's listings there .

Stop. Stop the presses.

At the end of an exceptional first week for our new program in News Innovation and Leadership at the Newmark J-school, the students — five managing editors, a VP, a CEO, and many directors among them — said they learned much from teachers and speakers, yes, but the greatest value likely came from each other, from the candid lessons they all shared. When I first proposed this program about four years ago, I suggested it should offer a smorgasbord of courses to be taken at will. Then ...

One Dose of Psilocybin May Offer Longterm Relief From Anxiety and Depression

Some five years after initial reports from their study, scientists at NYU Langone Health have found that one dose of psilocybin—which is found in magic mushrooms—can provide cancer patients with long-lasting relief from anxiety and depression. In 2016, 29 patients took part in the study (which also involved nine psychotherapy sessions), with many reporting after six months to have a more positive and less fearful …

“I’m going to lose 50 pounds!” “I’m going to write a novel!” “I’m going to pay down my debt!” “I’m going to start a podcast!” “I’m going to launch my own business!” You’ve probably seen these sorts of posts on social media from friends and family members.  Maybe you’ve made them too.  People often share their goals out of sheer excitement, feeling that telling the world will only fan the flames of their motivation.  So too, folks make public declarations of their goals in the h...

Installing Air Filters in Classrooms Has Surprisingly Large Educational Benefits

An NYU doctor is suing Apple alleging it stole a life-saving Apple Watch feature he says he invented (AAPL)

An NYU cardiologist has filed a lawsuit against Apple over an Apple Watch feature that detects heartbeat irregularities, arguing that the company stole his patented design. The feature is potentially life-saving — several people said they visited heart doctors in time to receive treatment after their Apple Watch detected an irregular heartbeat and alerted them. The doctor claims that he first told Apple about the patent in 2017, but that the company "refused to negotiate in good faith." Apple ...
