Modern society is as unequal as 14th century Europe

A new essay depicts 700 years of economic inequality in Europe. The only stretch of time more egalitarian than today was the period between 1350 to approximately the year 1700.Data suggest that, without intervention, inequality does not decrease on its own.Economic inequality is a constant topic. No matter the cycle — boom or bust — somebody is making a lot of money, and the question of fairness is never far behind. A recently published essay in the Journal of Economic Literature by Professor...

From London to Beijing on the old Silk Road – a photo essay

Taken on a 25,000-mile trip across 16 countries, these images capture cities, landscapes and people along the trading route – and the pre-Covid freedom of cross-border travelI set off on my dream journey from London to Beijing in the halcyon days of 2019.

Remembering a radio station that began in San Pedro nearly 100 years ago, and is still going

For obvious reasons, the very early broadcasting stations get all the love when it comes to radio trivia. KNX (1070 AM), KFI (640 AM) and KHJ (930 AM), for example, are all either celebrating, or are about to celebrate, a full century of broadcasting. Lost among the crowd, however, are other stations with unique histories. One such station is KTNQ (1020 AM) which actually has its genesis as a station broadcasting out of the port community of San Pedro. That’s right – San Pedro once had its very ...

"Italy is a republic, having abolished the monarchy 75 years ago for its disastrous support of Mussolini, and Italians have approximately zero interest in a royal restoration."

"'Never say never,' said Vittoria’s father, Emanuele Filiberto, an Italian television personality who claims the title Prince of Venice, which is also the name of his Los Angeles restaurant and former food truck.... Emanuele Filiberto is currently creating a Crown-like series about his grandmother, Queen Marie-José. 'Totally antifascist,' he said. 'A great antifascist,' echoed Vittoria, who called her a role model. Emanuele Filiberto notes that many of Europe’s remaining monarchs are women, sta...

The Birth Of Newsletters, 600 Years Before Substack

“Newsletters began in mid-fifteenth-century Venice. Subscribers would receive handwritten letters twice a week rounding up interesting events. Sixteenth-century merchants used similar news sources to keep track of exchange rates, taxes, and other business news. The form’s popularity expanded in England after the country’s first postal service took off around 1660. This opened the door to news writers, who could use the mail to gather information from distant correspondents and then send the inf...

Atlantis review – strangely upbeat exploration of war-ravaged Ukraine

Coquette, The Miniature Portrait I call Piglet

  This is Piglet.     With her grey curls, which was a thing back then, because she is not that old. Her eyebrows are so hip now. How did she know? A seductive echelle, blue-ribbon untied, what was she thinking I doubt it was about chocolate. And one gold loop, not two, trying to be a modern girl without a pearl earring. I tell you this portrait has a story. Coquette! ------------------             Here is Barbara (Frank is her husband and they love France. I have had the pleasure of mee...

It’s odd, isn’t it, that a throat-scorching liquor made from the almost spent left-overs of the wine making process would command a relatively high price and be consumed in thin and elegant glasses whose glistening flared chimneys amplify the vapors like the bell of a tuba amplifies the wet lip blat that originates with the artist at the other end. But there you have it. But what gives Grappa the luster of modernity is the way it is produced from the detritus left over from a vintage: skins, s...

In Venice, Building A New System To Protect St. Mark’s From Ever-Increasing Floods

The repeated, record-setting acqua alta events of late 2019 caused an estimated €300 million in damage to the Byzantine-style landmark — and floods are expected to get more frequent and severe as sea level rises. What’s more, the long-delayed MOSE floodgates in the Venice lagoon aren’t enough to protect St. Mark’s, which lies at one of the lowest points in the city and takes on seawater at tide levels well below what triggers the gates to rise. So engineers and architects are working on a €3.5 ...

What ‘Preserving Los Angeles’ could mean for the future of Southern California cities

When Ken Bernstein was a kid growing up in the San Fernando Valley, he would have his dad drive him around Los Angeles, using a Thomas Guide to explore different neighborhoods. “I had no idea that there were professions around this type of interest,” he says on a recent call from his home office. Bernstein, who is still a Valley resident, became an urban planner. He worked for former Los Angeles City Councilmember Laura Chick before becoming part of the staff for Los Angeles Conservancy. Today, ...

When the cameras aren’t around

It was bone dry this winter and spring has been no better. We know what that means for California: a trailer dragging a chain, a lightning strike, a downed power line, or a carelessly tossed cigarette and the next thing we know half the state will be in flames. All that fuel just needs one little spark. That’s what happened when Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin murdered George Floyd in full view of the world: Spark met fuel and cities burned from New York to Santa Monica. Our history is ...
