How this Southern California engineer helped capture the world from space

By Brooke Becher Contributing reporter Retired mechanical engineer Shelby Jacobs, whose contribution to the Apollo program accelerated the space race, speaks in spirited cliches and mottos he coined. The 83-year-old compared life to a marathon or building blocks. But as a black kid who lived during the same time as Martin Luther King Jr. and watched President Lyndon Johnson sign the Civil Rights Act of 1964 into law, Jacobs modified some phrases accordingly. Shelby Jacobs, the designer of the ...

‘Vice’ Director Adam McKay on His Meticulously Made Biopic and How He Thinks Dick Cheney Would React to the Film [Interview]

Too many biopics fall prey to hero worship. In trying to celebrate someone’s life, many biographical films end up lacking humanity, nuance, and, more often than not, hard truths. It plagues bio films, especially the agreeable kind that score all the Oscars. But in the case of Adam McKay‘s Vice, he didn’t make the average biopic. He’s certainly not looking up to Dick Cheney, the former Vice President, but looking down on him with a big ‘ol unforgiving microscope. The drama is an epic that moves ...

'Vice', Dick Cheney, and the Satisfaction of the Deed Itself

None The crucial moment in Vice, Adam McKay's furiously funny mock biopic about the rise of Dick Cheney, doesn't come when, as Vice President just after 9/11, he makes a naked power grab and shifts the country onto a war footing. It's not when he calls his wife Lynne from a cubicle in the Gerald Ford White House and says, "We did it." It happens back in Wyoming in the early '60s. Cheney is going nowhere fast after drinking after another drunk night that saw him tossed in the slammer, Dick—a he...

Jeff Goldblum's jazz album hit the no. 1 spot on the charts

Did you know... Jeff Goldblum plays jazz with the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra weekly at an L.A. club called Rockwell (road trip!)? And that, at the age of 66, he has released his debut album? Well, both of those are true. And, during the week of Thanksgiving, that new album of his -- The Capitol Studios Sessions -- got 10 Goldblums out of a possible 10 Goldblums on the Billboard Jazz Albums chart.

Best ski resorts for gay ski week

The dates of Gay Ski Week vary by resort, but one thing is consistent across the board — the word “ski” is used very loosely in practice. You can hop on one or two planks and hit the mountain as much as you wish — there’s always a group of diehards ready to hike the bowl if that’s what you’re into — but the real action begins with the après-ski scene around 3:00 PM and stretches deep into the evening. Parties last anywhere from a few days to a full week, but you’ll learn on night one why danc...

Artists Re-Envision Norman Rockwell’s ‘Four Freedoms’ To Reflect Today’s America

Holson talks with artists who are restaging those images, often with the cooperation of the Rockwell Museum, with a more variegated cast of characters.
