The Popdose Interview with Howard Jones

He’s been releasing albums on a fairly consistent basis since the beginning of his career, but for the first time in a long time, it feels like timing is on Howard Jones’ side. There’s a Republican in the White House – just like there was during Jones’ entire chart run from 1983 to 1992 – and the world is in desperate need of Jones’ trademark eternal optimism, which we’re pleased to say has not waned one bit.  Armed with a new album Transform, which features three collaborations with electronic...

Dracula in a Women’s Prison – review

Director: Jeff Leroy Release date: 2017 Contains spoilers The first reaction to a film with the title Dracula in a Women’s Prison is that it is likely to be poor... on the other hand if the filmmakers are confident enough to post a screener from the States over to the UK then they must have a level of conviction, of belief in their product. The second reaction is, of course, with the title Dracula in a Women’s Prison you kind of know what type of filmic entertainment you have in store. ...

Opinion: Navigating the stigmas, rules and taboos of cannabis advertising

An unstoppable green wave, the global cannabis market is projected to reach $166 billion by 2025, Euromonitor International says. The marketing dollars attached will almost certainly be huge, but the associated challenges are impossible to ignore. Living in Los Angeles one becomes somewhat numbed to the speed of change in this market. As I drive the five or so miles to my office each morning, I pass multiple billboards advertising cannabis delivery services, marijuana dispensaries and countle...

Fascinating map and data highlighting prevalence and intensity of marijuana's criminal enforcement footprint

Over at the Washington Post, Christopher Ingraham has fully titled "Where the war on weed still rages: In some U.S. counties, more than 40 percent of all arrests are for marijuana possession." The title highlights the piece's themes, but the text and a map therein reinforce the point in various ways: Marijuana possession led to nearly 6 percent of all arrests in the United States in 2017, FBI data shows, underscoring the level of policing dedicated to containing behavior that’s legal in 10 st...

West Virginia Is Looking for the Descendants of Civil War Veterans Who Never Claimed Their Medals

The unprecedented violence of the Civil War spurred new precedents for recognizing military service. The Medal of Honor , the first medal that enlisted military service members could be nominated to receive, started being awarded after 1862. The Civil War Campaign Medal was conceived in the early 1900s, around the 40th anniversary of the end of the war. Even Memorial Day was founded with the Civil War in mind. States gave out their own medals too. In fact, West Virginia is still giving them out....

Sharp goes clamshell with its folding phone concept

The beauty of the foldable is 2019 is that there’s no consensus yet on the “right” way to do things. We’ve seen a number of different takes on the space as the year has progressed, and no two are exactly the same. Keep in mind that this device from Sharp is still very much a concept. And even if it does come to market, it’s still going to be tough to get your hands on the product here in the States, as Sharp has a virtually non-existent mobile footprint. Still, it’s nice to see someone going ...

Meditation, tongue scrapers and the Ayurvedic diet in 'God's own country'

As an Indian kid growing up in the States, my parents did everything they could to create a little feeling of their ancestral land in our small Midwestern town. There was always classical Indian music, full of sitars and harmoniums, blaring on the weekends. My father often changed into a traditional kurta shirt in the evenings, after work. Our home always carried the strong fragrances of the spices and herbs of my parents' favorite dishes, which seemed to permanently embed themselves into our fu...

He Died a Thousand Times — and Lived: Adoniram Judson (1788–1850)

The story of Adoniram Judson’s losses is almost overwhelming. Just when you think the last one was the worst, and he could endure no more, another comes. In fact, it would be overwhelming if we could not see it all from God’s long historical view. The seed that died a thousand times has given life in Myanmar (formerly Burma) to an extraordinary movement to Christ. When Adoniram Judson entered Burma in July 1813, it was a hostile and utterly unreached place. William Carey had told Judson in ...

Whicker: Francesco Molinari came to Augusta as a caddie, returns as a contender

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The green coat wasn’t on his mind. The white coveralls were. Francesco Molinari pulled on the caddie outfit in 2006, the one with “Molinari” in green letters on the back. He was working for his older brother, Edoardo, who had qualified for the first Masters by winning the 2005 U.S. Amateur. They didn’t contribute much to Masters lore. Edoardo, who is nicknamed Dodo because that’s what Francesco called him as a toddler, shot 80-77. “I carried the clubs and I prayed that he would hi...

DIY: A Mirror by Two Paris Architects (Using Parts from the French Equivalent of Home Depot)

Hélène Pinaud and Julien Schwartzmann graduated from architecture school in Strasbourg in 2014 and promptly set up their own Paris firm, Heju.

In a string of tweets that started just before 11 p.m. EST on Monday night and reignited after 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, Trump berated the U.S. territory’s leadership, whom he described as “crazed” “incompetent and corrupt” and suggested that he was the “best thing tha...
