The War of the Rohirrim: The New ‘Lord of the Rings’ Movie Explained

“The horn of Helm Hammerhand will sound in the deep one last time,” King Theoden of Rohan ominously spoke during the climax of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.

Animation’s upcoming animated film The Lord of the Rings: The War of the Rohirrim, which will tell the story behind the fortress of Helm’s Deep. But who are the Rohirrim? What was the war they fought? And what kind of name is Helm Hammerhand? Thanks ...

Can Company Culture Fit Into the ‘New Normal’?

Company culture is a tricky thing. You can’t really measure it like your other business metrics – such as sell-through rate or sales revenue – but that doesn’t make it any less important. If you get it right, your business can thrive. There will be a greater sense of belonging, a defined framework of values, a space to collaborate – and your revenue will grow. However, get it wrong and you’ll have to deal with a misaligned team, high turnover rate, and no clear direction or identity. Due to the ...

A peek inside Goldman Sachs' internal idea factory that's hatched products like a LinkedIn for Wall Street. Here's what else it's trying to disrupt at the bank.

Goldman Sachs' internal incubator program, GS Accelerate, enables employees of the bank to trade their day jobs to become full-time entrepreneurs. The program was started in March 2018. So far, it has received 2,000 applications for funding for business ideas from within Goldman's ranks, but just 13 have received investments.

Rejecting The New Normal

by Rohan Thambrahalli, the Founder and President at UpstartWorks As businesses around the world return to work, leadership teams are tasked with deciding how best to reopen for their customers, their employees, and their values. Some of these changes, like face masks and temperature checks, are sensible and often mandatory measures meant to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

5 Questions We Asked Ourselves Before Rebranding Our Business

by Rohan Thambrahalli, the Founder and President at UpstartWorks As they mature, many companies find that they have outgrown their original purpose, realize they want to expand their operations, or see that their brand simply doesn’t reflect who they are anymore. With that said, rebranding is a common part of every business journey. The names BackRub or AuctionWeb may not ring a bell, but those companies turned to become the ultra-successful tycoons Google and eBay. Note that rebranding goes we...

Attila on the 2020 Forbes Flatlands

Attila Bertok writes: After I think 28 years coming to Forbes (except a few years when it wasn’t held) and losing at least 5 un-losable Flatlands, I finally can put this in the collection, too. Josh came 2nd with brilliant flying and Jonny came 3rd.It all started as doom and gloom. The country was on fire and the smoke was delivered to us via the varying winds. Visibility was occasionally nil either due to smoke or dust or both. The first 3 days were cancelled. It surely looked like t...

We need to talk about.... Trousers

You know what it’s like by now. Something comes into my head and we just have to have a conversation about it. Mostly walking trousers today, but also trousers in general, how I hate shopping for them. It’s the standing in front of the mirror and seeing the new bulges, ...or the skin tight legs that won’t go above the knees, and this whole ‘sits comfortably below the hips’ thing...does anything ‘sit comfortably below the hips’  and not sap a mature woman’s confidence.

Released ten years ago today, on May 8, 2009, director J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek reboot is the cinematic equivalent of a rock band going mainstream. It’s a hit remix version of an old song.

Holding steady at 94%, edging out classic big-screen entries like The Wrath of Khan and First Contact, it remains the highest rated Star Trek movie on Rotten Tomatoes, as well as the top-grossing film in the series according to Box Office ...

Updated ‘Lord of the Rings’ TV Show Map Shows a Middle-earth Long Before Aragorn Was Born

Amazon continues to tease out hints for its highly anticipated, highly expensive Lord of the Rings TV series with an updated map of Middle-earth. But like so much Lord of the Rings lore, it only makes things more complicated. Though this series has been cloaked in mystery since its announcement, we had accepted early reports that the series would center around young Aragorn, the noble character played by Viggo Mortensen in Peter Jackson’s film series. But the updated Lord of the Rings TV series...

Alternate Histories: The Two Film Adaptations of ‘Lord of the Rings’ on Their 40th and 15th Anniversaries

2018 is a major anniversary for The Lord of the Rings on screen. It’s been 40 years since the release of Ralph Bakshi’s animated version, and 15 years since the completion of Peter Jackson’s live-action trilogy. This dual anniversary – in addition to an imminent new adaptation on Amazon – makes for a fine opportunity to look at the two versions that exist so far. How do they differ? How do they align? Looking back at both from a distance, the answers surprised even me. A Halfling Half-Mo...

The Roman Aqueduct Of Pont Du Gard In France

In the southeast regions of France, there remains an architectural treasure from the ancient world. It is the Roman Aqueduct of Pont Du Gard. The structure built possibly around 19 BCE, is a testament to the builders, who created an engineering marvel, that survives to this day. The construction made out of limestone is both beautiful and practical in function, carrying both water and people across the Gardon River. The Pont du Gard aqueduct was added to UNESCO’s list of historically sig...

The first 1,000 are the most difficult

For years, I’ve been explaining to people that daily blogging is an extraordinarily useful habit. Even if no one reads your blog, the act of writing it is clarifying, motivating and (eventually) fun.

Fortunately, there are thousands of generous folks who have been posting their non-commercial blogs regularly, and it’s a habit that produces magic.

Hear Beowulf and Gawain and the Green Knight Read in Their Original Old and Middle English by an MIT Medievalist

Many a mocking critique floats around pointing out that some people who tell their multilingual neighbors to “speak English” seem to have a lot of trouble with the language themselves. I must confess, I find the observation more sad than funny. I’ve met many English speakers who struggle with understanding the peculiarities of the language and do not know its history. Increasingly, such things are not taught to those who don’t devote themselves to language study. When people do learn how...

Rohan flies the South Australia Coast
