Jack Kerouac’s “Beat Paintings:” Now Gathered in One Book and Exhibition for the First Time

Most of us enter Jack Kerouac's world through his 1959 novel On the Road. Those of us who explore it more deeply thereafter may find much more than we expected to: Kerouac's inner life came out not just in his formidable body of written work, but in spoken-word jazz albums, fantasy baseball materials, and even paintings. Though Kerouac has now been gone for nearly half a century, it wasn't until just last year that his works of visual art were brought together: Kerouac: Beat Painting did it in ...

Daylight Saving Time: Avoid Being a Statistic on the Road

Do you ever notice that you feel energized and drowsy around the same times every day? That’s your circadian rhythm , or your internal clock, at work. The most typical drowsy periods for adults are between 2am to 4am and 1pm to 3pm. If your sleep cycle is off, you will feel those swings between alertness and drowsiness even more intensely. Working night shifts, jet lag and daylight saving time can completely throw off that well-established internal clock, and it can take up to a week to adju...

Royal Rumble 2019 officially put us on the Road to WrestleMania 35 and Elimination Chamber nudged us a little further along the line, and now it's time for the last PPV stop before the big one: Fastlane 2019. While it's certainly possible for titles to move on WWETV in the last few weeks before WrestleMania, it's also pretty unlikely, so now's the biggest chance for some significant changes before we get to New Jersey.

A Harvard professor warns that the US is falling behind in deploying fiber-optic networks, and it could make inequality here even worse (VZ, T, CMCSA)

The biggest tech problem facing the US is that it doesn't have universal access to super-fast fiber-optic internet connections, according to Susan Crawford, a telecommunication expert and professor at Harvard Law School. Crawford details the promise of such a network — and the dangers the US faces if it doesn't deploy one — in a new book. Fiber connections could be used to deliver better health care to more Americans, improve access to education, and encourage economic development, particularl...

Sweet Home Arizona – Horticultural Happiness on the Road
