Generation Canceled By HBO Max After Just One Season

Why can't we have nice things? Or at the very least, why can't they last longer? Earlier this year, we got a very nice thing in the form of the new HBO Max series "Generation" (stylized "Genera+ion"), an ensemble story about a group of high schoolers learning about life, love, and family in a conservative California community. For a grand total of 16 episodes (delivered in two eight-episode batches), "Generation" was pure, ambitious, chaotic fun. But now its time to bid the show an early goodbye...

What is the 80/20 rule? Understanding the economic meaning of the Pareto Principle

The 8/20 rule is also called the Pareto Principle or the "law of the vital few." MoMo Productions/Getty Images The 80/20 rule, also known as the Pareto Principle, finds that 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes for any given situation. The 80/20 rule can apply to a wide range of fields, but is most commonly used in business and economics. Professionals advise against using the 80/20 rule to guide investing because it can distract from specific long-term goals. Visit Business Ins...

Gévelot Caps.

I’ve been dipping my toes into Sasha Sokolov‘s famously difficult 1980 novel Между собакой и волком, sometimes called the Russian Finnegans Wake; long thought untranslatable, it was finally rendered into English as Between Dog and Wolf by Alexander Boguslawski and published by Columbia University Press in 2017. I normally don’t bother with translations, since it usually turns out that if the Russian is too difficult for me it defeats the translators too, but in this case I’m grateful for all th...

New Adam Schlesinger tribute album features covers by Rachel Bloom, Charly Bliss, Sarah Silverman, Nada Surf, and many many more

Adam Schlesinger has long been a songwriting hero of mine, and I was absolutely heartbroken when I learned that he had passed away from COVID-19 complications in early April. He was someone who genuinely elevated the craft of pop songwriting to an artform, without precious or self-important about it. Now, friends of Schlesinger from across the spectrum of his work — from rock music to Broadway to movies and TV — have come together to put a 31-song tribute album, covering his whole discography: A...

‘There’s Only One Bill To Prioritize — Everything Else Is Negotiable’: CBS Analyst Explains How To Navigate Outstanding Balances On Limited Funds

(CBSNewYork) — Unemployment continues to rise, even as parts of the country take steps toward reopening. April’s unemployment rate more than tripled to 14.7 percent, the worst rise on record. The first week of May saw almost 3 million more new unemployment claims, bringing the coronavirus pandemic total to 36 million. The actual effect on the job market is likely far worse than the reported statistics. Losing a job, and the income that comes with it, can quickly change the financial standing of ...

Coronavirus Unemployment: Where Are California’s Paycheck Protection Loans?

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Why are California small businesses getting fewer paycheck protection loans per eligible business payrolls than any other state? That’s what many want to know as we near the end of the second round of funding for the program. Like many California small business owners, John Richards was turned away when he initially applied for a paycheck protection loan during the first round of funding. “She suggested we look at other banks,” Richards said after speaking with his banking l...

Round Two Paycheck Protection Program Loans: Will Californians Get Money This Time Around?

(CBS13) — Round two of the Paycheck Protection Program began Monday, with $310 billion available in forgivable small business loans. But the first round of funding ran out in days — and banks were criticized for giving the money to big business instead of mom and pop shops. In early April, John Richards lined up with everyone else hopeful his long-time big bank would process the Paycheck Protection loan he needed to keep his pharmacy afloat. But like most, he left empty-handed. Four big banks, i...

Coronavirus: Paid sick days save all of our lives

Adam Schlesinger and his Fountains of Wayne co-writer Chris Collingwood created better, sadder, funnier songs about the angst of lonely women amid the awful blandness of office culture than anyone in American pop music. Their only contemporary rivals at making short-story like workplace scenes within the tiny confines of a tune are the English band Squeeze. For those who are less than fan-boys, the Schlesinger songs you know are the MTV hit “Stacy’s Mom,” who definitely had it going on, and the ...

Donald Trump and Herbert Hoover

Max Boot, a distinguished conservative "never Trumper," has a column in the Washington Post in which he writes, "I knew he would be a bad president--but even I didn't expect him to be Herbert Hoover-level bad."  I find this truly mystifying in at least two ways. First, at the time of his election, Herbert Hoover was a truly distinguished American. FDR actually hoped in 1920 that Hoover, an Eisenhower-like figure whose political loyalties were as yet unknown, would run for the presidency as a Dem...
