A line from Léopold Sédar Senghor

A user-centric evaluation
framework means older
people have more problems
learning new systems, even

when there is improved
access to a variety of
language structures. We
noted an anomaly: re-

dundancy on both the
systems & user side means
that nominal data is never
uniform in the interval

between successive work-
outs. When you're indoct-
rinated, not even a lullaby
will smooth the readings.

flavor boosters

An intimate black-tie bash
for up to 30 guests during
Hollywood's next visit
from a British queen
needn't be synonymous
with bland & boring. So
many beautiful people in
the one room; high-wire

acrobats & roving illusion-
ists; the largest display of
traditional Chinese lanterns
outside China. The revival
of a cold war tradition. This
is the reality, not a fantasy.

A line from Stephen Hawking

By day, I'm an online
media buyer, grew up
with a passion & talent
for playing baseball.

On Fridays I like to shoot
pool or collect oral histories
at cocktail parties. I looked
in the toy section & saw

a sampling of narratives
drawn from doing jet
set events. Physics is
nearing its end; but I

have a similar juicer at
home that makes peanut
butter. There are things still
to prove. Looking inwards

at ourselves may influence
a child's perception of self
identity, but where are
the environmental benefits?

During a meeting with state governors at the White House, Trump said he would have felt compelled to confront the shooter personally, had he been on the scene.

“I really believe I’d run in there even if I didn’t have a weapon,” says the man who needed a golf cart to keep up with the other world leaders at the G7 summit.

Flowers of the Abyss

Hélas! tout est abîme
wrote Baudelaire—all is
, a completely
automated world of self-
assembling machine-flowers
made possible by an
emergent form of video
expression. Each change
brings out new curves in
the shoreline; in the same
ambient space there is a
region where the perception
of the image is still affected
by the dead blue screen. A
message appears to say
there is a problem with
the file. All windows
bare the infinite to me
