The worrying ideology that helps Trump’s new friendship with Brazil

As the conflict develops in Venezuela between the US-backed Juan Guaidó and the incumbent government of Nicolás Maduro, one staunch supporter of the United States position is Brazil. Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro has also expressed support for Trump’s wall project, and for moving embassies to Jerusalem. This new friendship between the United States and Brazil is one of the few foreign-policy achievements of the Trump administration, which has generally seemed better at losing old friends tha...

Ethical Artistry: Are we really asking ourselves these tough questions?

A little background: For more than two years, I worked to co-curate the Intricate Machines project with composer Phil Taylor and the Aizuri Quartet. Along the way, we had many discussions ranging from the pragmatic details of venue and budget, to deep artistic conversations about musical values. Our process challenged many of the assumptions we had about concert curation and presenting routines, showing us that no single set of guidelines apply to every project, and that decisions we made at eve...

Uber now lets you buy transit tickets in Denver

Uber, which is days away from going public, has added in-app ticketing to its transit offering in Denver. This comes a few months after Uber first launched transit integration in the city. “For the first time ever, taking an Uber trip can mean taking public transit,” Uber Head of Transit David Reich said in a statement. “We are excited to expand our collaboration with RTD and Masabi to make Denver the first city in the world where riders can purchase transit tickets and ride public tran...

Handel and the Rival Queens

From Leonardo vs. Michelangelo to Picasso vs. Matisse; from Mozart vs. Salieri to Reich v. Glass: whether it’s Maria Callas vs. Renata Tebaldi or Herbert von Karajan vs. Wilhelm Furtwängler, the history of culture is also a history of rivalries nurtured and reputations derided - more often by coteries and aficionados than by the artists themselves.

How Soviet troops taunted the Nazis during their final drive to Berlin in World War II

The final weeks of April 1945 saw Soviet troops advance on Berlin, bringing World War II in Europe to an end. Amid the Soviet onslaught and the confused Nazi retreat, Russian troops found ways to torment their foes. Visit BusinessInsider.com for more stories. The violence of the final weeks of World War II on Europe's Eastern Front was matched only by its chaos, as the exhausted and outnumbered Germans withered under attacks from well-equipped and highly motivated Soviet troops. The front lin...

Bismarck vs. Yamato: What if Hitler's Biggest Battleship Attacked Japan's Monster Warship?

The German squadron has a three-knot speed advantage, which it uses to try to pull away from the Japanese and avoid the engagement. However, the Japanese have a clear geographic advantage; the existence of relatively close bases means that they can station squadrons of older, smaller ships along potential channels of exit.Can we imagine a scenario in which two titans of World War II, the German battleship Bismarck and the Japanese battleship Yamato, would come into conflict? Difficult, but not i...

In A Novel About New Music, Do Re Mi Meets DNA

It’s no wonder that some composers of new music feel neglected. Not only do they have trouble finding an audience for their music, but they, unlike writers and detectives, are rarely portrayed in novels. One notable exception is the 2014 novel Orfeo, by Richard Powers, whose protagonist is a contemporary composer who inadvertently demonstrates how avant-garde music can reach “hundreds of thousands of listeners.” Just set up a home laboratory to insert musical patterns into the genome of a common...

Watch an Animated Score for Steve Reich’s Minimalist Piece “Clapping Music“–and Try Your Hardest to Follow Along

Steve Reich’s Clapping Music is one of the simplest scores of modern classical music, and as you might soon find out, one of the most difficult to perform. Written in 1972 while on a European tour and after a night of mediocre flamenco, Clapping Music is for two players. One claps a steady rhythm (technically an African Bell Rhythm). A second performer claps in unison in the same pattern for eight bars. At the end of the eighth bar, the second performer goes out of sync for one eighth no...

Thailand’s ‘Tough’ Mobile Price War to Moderate, Telenor’s Unit Says

The carrier’s revenue has declined for 14 consecutive quarters amid the fight for market share. While trying to lure users with lower prices, Total Access and bigger competitor Advanced Info Service Pcl have in the past few months acquired spectrum amid rising demand for data transmission. Ahead of the country’s planned sales of spectrum for 5G this year, Reich said Total Access isn’t ready to commit to participating.

Lyft and Juno are suing New York City over new minimum wage requirements for drivers

Lyft and Juno are suing New York City over a minimum wage law for drivers that's set to take effect on Friday.  The companies, both Uber competitors, say the rule is "inherently flawed and fundamentally unfair." As it stands, the rule would guarantee drivers at least $17.22 per hour after expenses.  Ride-hailing drivers in New York City are set to get a legally-guaranteed minimum wage on Friday, but new lawsuits filed Wednesday from two Uber competitors could put a wrinkle in their raise.

The Reich Backlash.

Last year I waxed enthusiastic about David Reich’s Who We Are and How We Got Here: Ancient DNA and the New Science of the Human Past and described his take on the history of Indo-European. As I read Gideon Lewis-Kraus’s cover story in last Sunday’s New York Times Magazine, I realized it was shaping up as a takedown of Reich, featuring a group of archeologists who are resentful of his strongarm tactics and the kind of dominance that makes it hard for dissenters to get published. Having seen the...

Campaigns compete in Pasadena’s minimum wage debate

When it comes to the income gap between California’s rich and poor, Pasadena comes second only to San Francisco, according to a recent report. In Pasadena, the average income of the richest 5 percent of households is more than 45 times greater than the average income of the poorest 20 percent of households, the second-highest gap among the state’s 50 largest cities. On the other end of the scale, in Pomona, for example, the gap shrinks to just 18 times greater, U.S. Census data show. It’s facts ...

Frank Reich notes “odd dynamics” and desire to have his guy as reasons for Dave DeGuglielmo firing

Despite massive strides made by the offensive line of the Indianapolis Colts in 2018, head coach Frank Reich elected to part ways with line coach Dave DeGuglielmo after their season-ending loss to the Kansas City Chiefs last weekend. DeGuglielmo and Reich were a bit of a forced marriage as DeGuglielmo joined the Colts under the belief Josh McDaniels would be the team's head coach. Instead, McDaniels bailed on his commitment to the Colts to return to the New England Patriots.
