UK’s 2021 work visa for European DJs, musicians poses challenge to cultural exchange

Europe’s cultural integration has made it an oasis for electronic music and music exchange. That makes new hard-line British policy a potential setback. The bright spot: by announcing the policy now, and introducing legislation, there is an opportunity for examination and (hopefully) change, before the policy becomes law. Updated: already, here’s one action for change. The Musicians’ Union is fighting for a passport for artists. You can add your name to the petition and, if you choose, don...

How to Be an Expatriate in 2020

Two years ago, Chuck Burgess and Kerstin Michaelsen were comfortably set up in New York City with good careers, a home in Manhattan and another in the Hamptons. But they yearned for something more.

They fantasized about moving abroad -- an idea that seemed more attractive as the couple, both 50, settled into midlife.Ultimately it was a "heightened sense of our mortality," Burgess said, tha...

How sabre-toothed cats got their bites

Big cats are the most specialized killers of large prey among carnivorans. Dogs, bears, or hyenas have teeth fit to deal with non-meat food items like bone, invertebrates or plants. Not the cats: In the course of evolution they lost almost all teeth not essential for killing prey or cutting meat. But in the distant past there was a group of cats that went farther down the path of specialization, making their living relatives look like amateur hunters. They were the sabre-toothed felids, members ...
