Watch Out, Spider-Man! The Daily Bugle Now Has A TikTok Account & Unpaid Interns

In "Spider-Man: Far from Home" there was a memorable subplot featuring Betty Brant (Angourie Rice), who became overnight soulmates with Spidey's "man in the chair," Ned Leeds (Jacob Batalon), on the plane to Venice. As Ned explains in the airport, though, following their trip, "Men and women grow apart." If you thought Betty was sitting around crying over her break-up with him, however, you've got another thing coming.It seems that Betty, true to her nature as the co-anchor of Midtown News and a...

Casinos made Macau one of the wealthiest places in the world — but they also brought heightened inequality and crime. Now, China is cracking down.

"Gaming is 70-80% of Macau's GDP. It's shockingly high," said Alidad Tash, who runs a consultancy firm called 2NT8 Macau.Nikada / Getty Images The entire infrastructure of Macau's success has been built on casinos. But under Beijing's regulatory crackdowns, gaming operators will have to abide by new rules — or risk losing their licenses.At 32 square kilometers, Macau is just 5% of Singapore's size. It's about half the size of Manhattan. Yet it has more than 35,000 hotel...

Playing and Pasta Making in Verona

My girlfriends and I found affordable tickets to Italy and traveled there together in October. Our destinations were Venice, Florence, and Verona, we arrived by plane in Venice then did a loop around those cities by train. Verona is known for the setting of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and it sits on the River Adige. It was a colony of the Roman Empire because of its navigable river, and is famous for a few castles including the Castelvecchio fortress. It was an artistic center in the Middle A...

Six Reasons Why Humans Wear Masks

This Halloween, people in many places will be wearing two kinds of masks: one to be scary, the other to protect themselves and others against COVID-19. Yes, it’s another pandemic Halloween—and while the masks we wear might seem weird, the really weird stuff is happening inside our heads. Masks have roots going back to at least Neolithic times, and they’re capable of pushing some deep evolutionary buttons, triggering fear, laughter, aggression, awe, and many more emotions. That’s a feature, not...

Avezzù (Venice, Italy) The Sala Grande on the Lido is one of my favorite cinemas in which to screen a film. The original theater was inaugurated on August 10, 1937 for the fifth edition of the Venice Film Festival. Over the years it has been expanded and improved until in 2011 it was completely overhauled and reconstructed, inspired by the original 1937 design by Luigi Quagliata. Normally...

This Hollywood, Is It Real?

Toward the end of the civil war in the former Yugoslavia, my Croatian Ex-Husband and I drove up the still stabilizing Dalmatian Coast to Venice, lured by the promise of a cheap vacation. The only major flaw in our travel plans was a small section of Bosnia, where the fighting raged on, and which I will only remember as a series of tense military road blocks along the craggy coastal highway fronting the Adriatic. While the attitude toward a Dubrovnik-born national would vary according to the rel...

A New Look

You may have noticed that Open the Future has taken on a somewhat different design. You may also have noticed that I haven't been blogging lately. These are not unrelated. I've been doing quite a bit of public speaking, all over the world -- from Sarajevo to Venice to Shenzhen in the last year alone, along with multiple locations here in the U.S. -- and a good amount of work with the Institute for the Future. I've also been doing occasional commentary pieces for New Scientist magazine. So I've...

Visions of Venice

Decorative metalwork .. Peggy Guggenheim Museum gateway. When in Venice .. If  you find yourself yearning to leave the crowds behind, continue strolling along the canal, away from the tourists that gather round St. Mark's ... ... and eventually you'll come to the expansive public parklands - the Giardini at the eastern edge of the city. This green space was quiet during my June sojourn, but I believe the Architecture Biennale is taking place there this Fall. A favorite meal ~ M...

Dreaming of Italy .. Lago di Garda

All the months of planning that go into travel abroad... and all too soon the trip is over.  Thankfully, the memories remain vivid in my mind's eye. At times, a flashback will trigger the excitement of a beautiful vista, as when I first glimpsed the magnificent Dolomites towering above Riva del Garda. Or I'll be going about my usual activities, and suddenly the day comes alive with the sensory recollections of a rainy summer day exploring Lake Garda. The Peggy Guggenheim Collection ... a re...

Turning Towards Torcello

One of the great surprises of my Italian sojourn: Historic Torcello, barely populated, yet at one time, the beating heart of the Veneto. Some 20 people now occupy this island in the Venetian lagoon where 10,000 or more once thrived.  Wild meadows and fenced areas under cultivation caught my eye, along with Ristorante Villa 600, where we stopped to sip an afternoon 'Spritz' in the peaceful gardens.

Violinist Breaks a String While Performing Tchaikovsky in Concert, and Gracefully Recovers

Having evolved over centuries — indeed, millennia — the formal elegance and sonic beauty of stringed instruments continue to inspire their players toward ever-greater heights of virtuosity. But of course, the attainment of virtuosity itself doesn’t come easy, and whatever altitude you reach, you’ll still be dogged by some of the same problems you were as a novice. What violinist, for instance, could ever fully put out of their mind the possibility of a string’s breaking as they play, whe...
