The method, designed by MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence (CSAIL) graduate Dr. Sabrina […]...

  • The biggest step the Biden administration took on climate yesterday wasn’t rejoining the Paris Agreement

  • Explore the famed faery painting of an artist dealing with mental illness in the mid-1800s
    I just discovered a fascinating piece on Public Domain Review about Richard Dadd, a Victorian-era painter who is best known for the surreal depictions of faeries and other supernatural entities that he created while he was in asylum for having an "unsound mind" (likely schizophrenia), which resulted in him killing his father. — Read the rest...
  • MAGA and Qanon "desperate and disillusioned"
    Up until the end, Trump's truest believers thought something was going to happen. Biden arrested as he walked onto the inaugural stage. A last-minute military coup to keep him in office. Anything that would keep alive the conspiracy theory that Trump was quietly working to expose and destroy the elite cabals of which he is, in obvious truth, a fully paid-in member. — Read the rest...

    Ever wondered which Trump kid is the stupidest? It would obviously be Eric or Donald Jr, aka Dumb and Dumber, but figuring out which of the two is Dumber could be a real stumper. Thank goodness Mary Trump set the record straight as a recent guest on the Meidas Touch Podcast. — Read the rest...
  • Watch Orson Welles' forgotten 1956 TV Pilot, "The Fountain Of Youth"
    In the mid-1950s, Orson Welles created a TV pilot episode for a potential anthology series adapting short stories for television. As biographer Joseph McBridge wrote in his 2006 book, What Ever Happened to Orson Welles?: A Portrait of an Independent Career: It was intended to inaugurate a series of short stories Welles would narrate and direct in the First Person Singular style of his Mercury Theatre on the Air and Campbell Playhouse radio series, but with his innovative radio techniques adapted for the visual intimacy of the newer medium. — Read the rest...
  • How the surreal 90s Ninja Turtles Rock N' Roll Musical Spectacular came to be (and make Oprah uncomfortable)
    Perhaps it's because I'm a child of the mid-80s and thus ripe for the action figure marketing tie-ins, but I will never not be amazed by the stratospheric rise of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that has somehow kept them in the favor of the public heart. — Read the rest...

  • Restaurant-Quality Wine, Delivered to Your Door Every Month? Yes, Please.
    Get in on Eater Wine Club, a monthly wine subscription One of the things we love most about food is wine. Specifically, the wine you get to drink while dining out at your favorite restaurant, be it your go-to local joint or the fanciest place in town. This is wine selected by someone who knows what they’re doing — a professional who understands how to decode a label and what kind of grapes will make your food taste that much better. So what if, we wondered, we made it possible to experience that kind of hospitality right at home? Well,...
  • Takeout Meal Subscriptions Are Helping Restaurants Find Stability in a Harsh Winter
    Photo by Gado Gado For restaurants, takeout meal subscriptions offer mercifully predictable income. For diners, they create a much-needed disruption in a monotonous cooking-takeout cycle. Mariah Pisha-Duffly was exhausted with the state of the restaurant industry. It was November in Portland, Oregon, and she was dreading another two-week-long closure of her Southeast Asian restaurant Gado Gado. For her and for every other restaurateur navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, it had been months of jumping through hoops and reinventing her business. This time patios were included in the shutdown, meaning establishments around the city were staring at freshly weatherized outdoor seating areas...

    Andrew Yang is running for Mayor of New York City.
