The 355 Ending Explained: In The Nick Of Time

Director Simon Kinberg's 2022 spy film "The 355" is a fast-paced thriller with so many twists and turns, you may be dizzy by the end. Is it groundbreaking? Not really. Is it fun? Yes.

"Students said they sat in stunned silence as [Laurence] Olivier appeared onscreen in thickly painted blackface makeup."

"Even before class ended 90 minutes later, group chat messages were flying, along with at least one email of complaint to the department reporting that many students were 'incredibly offended both by this video and by the lack of explanation as to why this was selected for our class.' Within hours, Professor Sheng had sent a terse email issuing the first of what would be two apologies. Then, after weeks of emails, open letters and canceled classes, it was announced on Oct. 1 that Professor Shen...

If you didn’t make $1B this week, you are not doing VC right

The only thing more rare than a unicorn is an exited unicorn. At TechCrunch, we cover a lot of startup financings, but we rarely get the opportunity to cover exits. This week was an exception though, as it was exitpalooza as Affirm, Roblox, Airbnb, and Wish all filed to go public. With DoorDash’s IPO filing last week, this is upwards of $100 billion in potential float heading to the public markets as we make our way to the end of a tumultuous 2020. All those exits raise a simple question – who m...

Bright Sheng: My Father’s Letter and Bernstein’s Question

But when we finally met with him on Presidents’ Day in his pied-à-terre across the street from Lincoln Center, it proved to be worth th...

Ten Tips For Brewing Better Tea – Part Two

Continued from yesterday’s post  try out Gongfu brewing, versus Western style There are two main ways to brew tea; Western style uses roughly a teaspoon or 2 grams of tea per one cup of water, infused for around 4 minutes, often twice.  Gongfu style brewing uses a higher proportion of tea to water and a different type of device, most often either a gaiwan or clay pot instead of a ceramic teapot, tumbler, or gravity infuser.  Different teas work better using different proportions, timing, a...

Tea group buying & the Sheng Olympiad: an interview with Andrew Richardson of Liquid Proust Teas

I’ve not written about non-standard tea sourcing before.  A blog post citation from Cwyn’s Death by Tea identifies the background: “More and more tea heads on vacation trips are dragging home kilos of tea they tested and bought for friends back home […] The forums are full of people now offering to do group buys from numerous sources, employing their own sets of connections […]” So, a new wrench for vendors to contend with is non-professionals selling to peers, directing their tea budgets away ...

Shanghai Shenhua player who stamped on Axel Witsel gets OTT punishment

Sheng’s crime Axel Witsel had an eventful weekend. The Belgium international, now at Tianjin Quanjian, scored his side’s goal in their 1-1 draw at Shanghai Shenhua. It came an hour after he was on the receiving end of an offence worthy of a red card. In fact, Qin Sheng’s stamp was deemed worthy of a far harsher set of punishments. Sheng’s punishment Shanghai announced that Sheng will be fined ¥300,000 (£35,000) and have his wages docked for the rest of the season. He will also be forced to tr...

While Carlitos was quiet today, his teammates made for compelling viewing. Qin Sheng tried to do a bit of nasty business under the radar against Tianjin Quanjian but his actions were picked up. Marking up at a corner, Sheng wandered towards Tianjin’s star Axel Witsel and sneakily stamped on his foot. Witsel went down like a sack of spu...

Trump's $25 billion wall would be nearly impossible to build, according to architects

In early January, President-elect Donald Trump revived his promise to build a wall along the Mexico-US border (as well as his disdain for the media). "Dishonest media says Mexico won’t be paying for the wall if they pay a little later so the wall can be built more quickly. Media is fake!" he tweeted on January 9. The incoming administration may ask US Congress (and taxpayers) to foot the wall's bill, according to Republican lawmakers. Trump, however, said that Mexico would eventually pay fo...

Human early visual cortex subconsciously resolves invisible conflicts

In the case of binocular rivalry, in which the conflict exists between the two eyes, the question becomes whether binocular rivalry requires conscious awareness of the conflicting information between the two eyes. This is the question investigated in a study jointly conducted by Dr. Zhang Peng and Dr. He Sheng's research groups, including graduate student Zou Jinyou, from the Institute of Biophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, published online at PNAS on June 27, 2016.

Blast from the Past: A New Way of Thinking

Sometimes, when you search long enough, dig deep enough, and study hard enough, you find yourself facing an obstacle that comes not from outside, but from within. One’s preconception and understanding become themselves a limitation. One must somehow come to terms with the awareness that one’s perspective faces a fundamental challenge and that to deepen one’s knowledge you need to see things from another angle. The purpose of the World Tea Tours – Immersion: Pu Er program this past November was t...
