Italian prosecutors and the government's privacy watchdog are investigating how the names of women who miscarried or had abortions ended up on crosses over graves for the fetuses in a cemetery in Rome. Rights groups have denounced the grave markings as a gross violation of the women's privacy, which is protected by the 1978 law that legalised abortion in Italy. While regulations require burial of a fetus after 20 weeks, women who have complained said they never knowingly consented to the...

‘Night of the Kings’ Review: Neon’s Latest Acquisition Title is a Thrilling Ode to Storytelling’s Power [TIFF 2020]

Champions of art love to pontificate about its importance, especially during times like a pandemic. But that rhetoric might ring a little hollow right now. However, it’s not an exaggeration to say that humans as a species are hardwired for storytelling. There’s science to back up the capability to narrativize our experience as necessity, not merely a luxury. As innate as our impulses for violence and destruction is our drive to create and narrate. This becomes all too apparent for the young man...

How brothers become strangers, and vice versa

These two maps capture the centrifugal and centripetal forces at work throughout human history.See how the Proto-Indo-European word for 'brother' spreads and changes, in both sound and meaning.And how the Proto-Germanic word for 'stranger' now is a familiar fixture of European toponymy. Name that animal (in Proto-Indo-European) What is the difference between a brother and a stranger? Distance and time. As both grow, what is familiar becomes less so.

Roman road maps in the style of the London Underground's

Sasha Trubetskoy made . It’s finally done. A subway-style diagram of the major Roman roads, based on the Empire of ca. 125 AD. Creating this required far more research than I had expected—there is not a single consistent source that was particularly good for this. ... The biggest creative element was choosing which roads and cities to include, and which to exclude. There is no way I could include every Roman road, these are only the main ones.

Take The Long View

In 2011, on a tour of Mauna Kea’s summit, I looked at Saturn through a large reflecting telescope and it blew my mind. When you’ve seen a thousand pictures of something, you feel like you’ve seen it before. What I saw through the eyepiece was entirely new. I expected another picture of Saturn, but instead I saw a real object—a small, grey-orange ball, fixed in the center of a perfect, razor-flat ring. I could even sense the empty, airless space around it. It looked impossible. But there it ...
