In the Spotlight: Thomas Finney’s Modern Take on Made-to-Measure

Designer: Thomas Finney
Backstory: The Michigan native initially thought his career path would lead to the film industry. But once he got immersed in the Savannah College of Art and Design, he switched gears to fashion design, with a focus on men’s wear. He scored an internship with Thom Browne and so impressed the designer that he was hired to be a full-time men’s designer for the label after graduation. He stayed at his “dream job” for four years, working on both the commercial and runway collections, before leaving for a short stint working with Aaron Levine at Club Monaco. “I went from high concept to high street,” he said. About 18 months ago, he took the plunge and launched his own eponymous label, zeroing in on tailored clothing and furnishings.
Aesthetic: Finney admits to a love for Americana and based his silhouette off of a Forties golfing jacket. His ability to combine old-school tailoring techniques with new technology results in a slim, modern cut that is comfortable and easy to wear. In addition to suits, Finney has also created an entire day-to-night wardrobe ranging from denim with a suede crotch — “Yes, I went there.”— to leather jackets and knitwear.

Teddy Ondo Ella to Launch Namesake Tailoring Line Embodying Modern Africa

PARIS — You’ve heard of Made in France, China or Italy. But what about Made in Gabon?
Entrepreneur Teddy Ondo Ella, who grew up between France and Gabon, a country located on the equator in western Africa, is out to set things straight. The self-taught designer a few months ago launched his urban streetwear line, Only Made in Gabon, which is based on Gabonese codes but produced in Portugal. The upcoming edition of New York Fashion Week: Men’s in July, meanwhile, will see the launch of an eponymous tailoring line hooked on an update of the traditional short-sleeved Gabonese suit dubbed the Abacos, short for “à bas le costume,” which in English translates to “down with the suit.”
“It was created by Africans in the Seventies as a [symbol] of anticolonialism. They took all the specifications of a regular suit, but did it their way, with a high collar and short sleeves. It’s supereasy,” said Ondo Ella, adding: “My father’s generation still wears it, but I want to bring it back and put a younger spin on it.”
Whereas the traditional Abacos is cut super loose, Ondo Ella said his take is more fitted, using top-of-the-line cloths such as weighty cottons by Cerruti.

‘Modern Family’ Star Rico Rodriguez’s ‘Super Hero’ Father Dies

Modern Family” star Rico Rodriguez is mourning his father, Roy Rodriguez, who died suddenly on March 12 at the age of 52. 

Rico, who’s played Manny Delgado on the hit ABC sitcom for the past eight seasons, shared a heartfelt post on social media Sunday honoring his “super hero” dad.

“This has been the toughest week of my life,” he captioned a photo of himself and his late father sipping on milkshakes. “My Dad was the most kind hearted, loving, hard working, determined, and funny man I have ever known. He was like a super hero, he had the ability to get the best out of you day in and day out.”

”I’m gonna miss your hugs. I’m gonna miss your advice. I’m gonna miss your smile, and I’m gonna miss your laugh,” he continued. “I know you’re looking down at us right now giving us the green light to move forward. I miss you Daddy. I’ll love you forever.”

The actor’s older sister, Disney Channel actress Raini Rodriguez, also took to social media to remember her late father, posting a photo of the two along with a touching caption. 

“You have officially been gone one week daddy and while it has been really difficult, we are all still standing tall and I know it’s because you are sending us strength and guidance all the way from heaven,” she wrote.

“I know you will continue to shine down on me, momma, Rico, Ray, Poppi and baby and we will be ok! I promise to make you proud daddy. I will love and miss you forever.”

According to his obituary, Rodriguez is survived by his wife Diane and their four children, Rico, Raini, Roy Jr. and Ray, as well as 10 grandchildren. He was laid to rest on Saturday in his home town of Bryan, Texas. 

In August 2016, Roy and his children appeared on “Celebrity Family Feud” to face off against Jaleel White and his family. Watch a clip from the episode below.

Citizen of the World: Actor Reda Kateb on ‘Django’, Animal Vibrations and Problematic Modern Leaders

2017-02-11-1486815289-1313331-201714390_Django_copyright_Roger_Arpajou_klein1.jpg

Kahlil Gibran wrote “You give but little when you give of your possessions. It is when you give of yourself that you truly give.” And perhaps it’s appropriate to quote Gibran’s The Prophet when talking about French-born actor Reda Kateb, who embodies at once cultures as diverse as Algerian, Czech and Italian.

If you are not familiar with Kateb’s name yet, you will be. I believe he’s about to become the most sought-after actor in world cinema.

But back to generosity and Kateb. The two seem to go hand in hand, as the actor dedicated his time and energy to answering thoughtfully each and every question posed by a roomful of journalists who simply couldn’t get enough of his wisdom. Kateb gave of himself, on a sunny but frigid afternoon, when one could tell he’d been doing press all day for Étienne Comar’s Django — this year’s opening film at the Berlinale. Coming back from a break just outside, on the balcony of the suite in the Scandic Hotel, he excused himself by saying “if I give twice the same answer you’ll forgive me,” clearly tired from the day-long junket he’d been a part of. Yet once the questions started, Kateb was there, in the moment, present and giving, never holding back, always being sincere. And he never repeated himself.

Watching Django, I realized Kateb’s Django Reinhardt redefined courage for me. His languid, truthful way of embodying the legendary Gypsy guitarist redefines an iconic figure and from now on, I’ll never be able to listen to Django’s music again without seeing Kateb’s face. That face, so understatedly yet powerfully handsome, the way he smiles, also lacking any sign of self-importance, Kateb embodies true beauty. His sultry gaze and quiet passion, the kind you feel bubbling just below the surface, make Django irresistible and from a character in a film and a musical figure in our collective imagination, Kateb turns him into a real man right in front of our eyes.

There is also a playfulness to Kateb that sneaked out a couple of times during the interview, a break from his otherwise disciplined persona. At the start, he pulled a bright red guitar pick out of his pocket and started twirling it around in his fingers. When he accidentally dropped it, while his translator turned his French answers into English, he reached down to the floor and searched for it under the table. It made me giggle while I transcribed his thoughts later, giggle out loud at the thought of him searching for his red guitar pick, with the help of a journalist sitting to his left.

Interviewing Kateb made me wish my work for the day could end there. You know, when you’ve experienced the best and nothing could possibly top it? That’s how I felt and I don’t remember actually walking back to my hotel from the Scandic. But I remember crossing gaze with a few of my fellow human beings and finding new beauty in them.

When a film, a star, a meeting can do that, I say it’s cinematic magic.

2017-02-11-1486815341-7151375-201714390_4.jpg

What is it like to do press all day? Does it get to be very surreal at this level?

Reda Kateb: Not surreal, but one tends to get tired.

How do you approach a genius that actually lived and still make the part your own?

Kateb: Right from the moment I read the script, and I knew very little about Django, I felt that I will have to look for a character that was much bigger than me, and almost bigger than life. Exactly like the great characters that you get in theater who are in a way some concentration of humanity. They are very full and very complex. And this is how I felt with Django. So it really was a challenge for me to understand who this character was that I will have to play. It was like having to go up a mountain really. The preparation work lasted for a year and when Etienne Comar was about to start shooting I required a little more time in order to prepare better because I didn’t feel I was ready. When the shoot started lets say maybe the first week, I was trying to adjust and find out how I was going to do, but then after a week it was perfectly OK and I was ready to let go. When I put on my costume, I was Django.

Was it difficult to communicate in a different language in this film? Your language is acting whereas in this film you are using music so much to communicate what you are feeling, and who you are.

Kateb: I have a musical relationship with acting. And this for each part, I really find it has to do with the rhythm you give and it’s some kind of music, and I absolutely love acting in another language. Last year I shot a film with Wim Wenders where I spoke in Somali and obviously I absolutely ignore the Somalian language so every morning and every night I was learning my lines, phonetically. My approach of the language was not any more something that had to do with the meaning of language, it was an approach that had to do with the vibrations, with the way the voice can actually be an instrument. I felt that when you are liberated from the meaning, you are as close as possible to the animal vibration that you feel when you speak. In a way we actors we do some kind of interpretation with an instrument, which is the voice, and my real preparation for Django was the musical preparation that lasted a year and this really was my gateway to the character.

How well did you learn to play and how much of it is in the film?

Kateb: The preparation lasted for one year so I played every day and during that year I shot two other films but I always had my guitar with me in my dressing room and I was playing, I was doing my scales. I started with simple tunes like some Bob Dylan music and then little by little I started playing with this three-fingers technique and I did exercises with rhythm. This is what I worked on for the film. What was most important for me was that other musicians watching the film should believe that I was the one playing. As I also wanted audiences of Gypsy origin to really believe that I was a Gypsy when they would watch the film. This was my challenge and what I concentrated on.

When we see guitar playing, is it always you doing it or is it a double?

Kateb: For the close-ups they are the hands of someone called Christophe Lartilleux but for any kind of wider shot it’s really me.

Are you interested in the obvious political resonance of the film?

Kateb: Anytime I do a film I need to agree with the viewpoint, the stance of the film. To me the film was a way of paying homage to the grand icon of Gypsy music and also to the Gypsy community. It was also speaking of a specific period and it was in 2016 in France that the genocide of the Gypsy people was recognized so in a way it was my opportunity to take part in telling a history that was not necessarily in the textbooks. You can also see the film as the story of a family of refugees who would need to cross a lake in order to survive and obviously if were to see what this lake could be nowadays it’s quite obviously the Mediterranean. It was for me important that the film not be merely some kind of historical postcard but to resonate with the bigger picture in our days. The film is not a statement, it does not deliver any kind of message. It is more a work of art that actually puts forth emotions and could enable the viewer to feel and maybe then start thinking.

2017-02-11-1486815380-9851157-201714390_2.jpg

It’s inevitable to watch the film and draw comparisons with what is happening around the world, in the USA and specifically in France. Would you like to share your opinion about what happen in France if Marine Le Pen wins?

Kateb: How can I say this. First of all, I feel more like a citizen of the world, and I don’t want to come here and deliver some kind of view on French politics. I think it’s a global movement. In a way we are sort of going backwards. The world is becoming more right-wing orientated and it seems that people are in some sort of need for strong or dictatorial political figures. This is something that I can see, like many of us, and something that I find rather worrying — as many of us do. But I don’t think the question is whether it will be Marine Le Pen or François Fillon, I think the question is more about — and this is something that has lingered in my mind for a long time — is it a particular time that creates the great political figures or do great political figures exist and then are they going to shape the times, the era? I think it’s the first that actually happens. There are moments in history that call for a certain type of figure and I think our times call for the type of more right-wing dictatorial figures. But having said that I think it’s important to have a film that actually pays homage to a people without borders, who know no frontier, people who in a way are not money-oriented, who live their lives almost poetically and artistically, and I think this kind of film in our days is extremely necessary. I think it’s a strong symbol to have it open the Berlinale.

Django, first refusing to play for the Nazis, then accepting. How do you relate?

Kateb: I imagine that some right-wing people may have bought some tickets to my films and as such, contributed to the funding of the films. Actually I doubt they are very numerous because the films I’ve made are not likely to interest these kind of people, but anyway I think like Django, if I were performing in a theater I certainly wouldn’t ask the people what are their political views. Anybody can actually decide to buy a ticket to see a show or a film or to buy a record. You can’t prevent people from coming to see you. But as an artist you can decide to align with, or to support some politician or some political party, and then you have to realize that this may have some consequences. This is where the line is drawn. As a citizen I would certainly like people like Marine Le Pen not to exist, but the question about political commitment of artists is a question that you should really ask yourself. I did a lot of research about how artists behaved during the Nazi occupation in France, and some of them like Django just carried on, kept doing their jobs, as did bus drivers, because they needed to survive. Others were actually far more involved with the Nazis. They went and shared dinners or lunches with them or did publicity, like Fernandel did on Radio Paris. This is where you can draw the line between what it is to carry on doing your job and collaborating.

But it’s always difficult to judge people, to imagine what you could have been doing in this difficult period. I know for myself I certainly would not have been able to — even if was something that would help my career — collaborate with this kind of regime.

Uroscopy in Early Modern Europe

Uroscopy in Early Modern Europe


Uroscopy – the diagnosis of disease by visual examination of the urine – played a very prominent role in early modern medical practice and in the lives of ordinary people. Widely considered as the most reliable way to diagnose diseases and pregnancies it was taught at the best universities. Leading physicians prided themselves on their mastery in this field. Countless medical writings were dedicated to uroscopy and artists represented it in hundreds of illustrations and paintings. Based on a wide range of textual and visual sources, such as autobiographies, court records, medical treatises and genre painting, this book offers the first comprehensive study of the place of uroscopy in early modern medicine, culture and society and of the – gradually changing – ways in which medical practitioners, lay persons and, last but not least, artists perceived and used it.

A BREATH OF FRESH AIR: PALM BEACH MODERN + CONTEMPORARY INAUGURAL FAIR PRESENTED BY ART MIAMI

2017-01-10-1484008955-6075616-1.RobertShanaParkeHarrisonFirstofMay.jpg

Robert & Shana ParkeHarrison, First of May, 2015, Precipice series, Pigment print, Total edition of 7, 30 x 40 in., 40 x 53 in. Courtesy of Catherine Edelman Gallery.
ParkeHarrisons’ remarkable pigment print is a quintessential surrealist/dada/performance photographic document in which a man receives information over the airwaves and transcribes it at the same time.

Downtown West Palm Beach is a stone’s throw from the tropical island of Palm Beach on the east coast of Florida, close to where the mighty Gulf Stream current of the Atlantic Ocean flows, which helps generate perfect weather during the winter season and makes the area’s air quality arguably the best in the nation. Palm Beach County is one of most popular travel destinations on the Southeastern seaboard, with its pristine beaches, cultural attractions, outstanding restaurants, and distinguished museums and galleries all providing a lively supportive spirit to the vibrant local art scene, which continues to energize the downtown locale. In the last two years, West Palm Beach has received international attention with the celebrated annual CANVAS event, conceived by local gallerist Nicole Henry, in which first class muralists from around the world are commissioned to create remarkable large-scale paintings on available building façades along the city center corridor, making the thriving arts district also one of the world’s most ambitious outdoor museum shows. The community always has been encouraging of art initiatives, including the latest round of a $ 60 million expansion of the nearby Norton Museum of Art, while downtown West Palm Beach is experiencing a construction boom and a renaissance of sorts that has acted as an invisible magnet, drawing in thousands of people who want to enjoy the adventuresome vitality offered by its metropolitan landscape. So, it should be no surprise that the timing is perfect for Art Miami, one of America’s premier art fairs, to set up shop in the very heart of downtown, taking advantage of the creative dynamism this exciting city provides and the traditional strong interest in serious art collecting that is a tradition in the Palm Beaches.

In what seems to be the most anticipated and talked about art event of the Palm Beach season, Art Miami, the longest-running continuous art fair in America, is presenting Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary, which will debut at the fair’s downtown pavilion site on Thursday, January 12th (and run through Sunday the 15th). This highly respected and distinguished showcase for internationally renowned artists will open with a VIP Preview benefiting the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society and sponsored by Christie’s International Real Estate. With a worldwide reputation for excellence, there’s no doubt that a fair from Art Miami coming to Palm Beach County during the height of the season undoubtedly will fill a welcome niche in the local art collecting landscape.

Palm Beach Modern + Contemporary, which will offer investment quality works from the 20th and 21st centuries as well as mid-career artists with impressive auction records, will take place in the modern setting of a 65,000-square-foot clear span pavilion located between CityPlace and the luxurious Hilton West Palm Beach. Centered at the major crossroads of Lakeview Drive and Okeechobee Boulevard at Dixie Highway, this fair city of 100,000 residents and visitors can enjoy at the pavilion a remarkable variety of exemplary work at a major art fair. It’s about time.

A massive, towering white tent covers the entire city block, which is a masterpiece of engineering and a perfect accompaniment to the masterworks that will be on display. An impressive group of international galleries from cities around the world, including Paris, Amsterdam, London and Tokyo will complement the line-up from U.S. cities such as New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. While it’s not possible to explore everything on view, the following is a selection of my favorite artworks:

Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison (work pictured above) have been taking the world by storm over the past six years by creating a totally unique genre within the history of contemporary photography. This talented couple fabricates remarkable fantasies under the guise of environmental narrative performances, using a strong dash of surreal imagination coupled with inventive theatrical constructed stage sets that they meticulously photograph with perfected panache and dynamic dramatic dioramas.

Ed Ruscha not only is considered one of the greatest contemporary artists in California, but is recognized throughout the world as a highly affecting innovator. Ruscha first came to prominence in L.A. in the late 1950s, making small collages that were influenced by those of Rauschenberg and Johns. As the collages were polished and refined, he began employing words and iconic images in unique ways, ultimately discovering a harmonious balance that through recognition allowed the artist to create paintings utilizing single words and phrases as an early pioneer of this genre.

Andy Warhol’s revolutionary style of taking ordinary commercial images and placing them on silkscreened canvas was considered preposterous at first, with his earliest show of Campbell Soup cans imagery eliciting vociferous, negative responses from both the art world and the general public. His early iconic silkscreen portraits of famous personalities like Marilyn, Jackie and Elizabeth Taylor were off-register purposely, but eventually became recognized as brilliant while adorning the covers of Interview magazine.

Another slant on portraiture is Hendrik Kerstens’ twenty-year investigation of photographing his daughter in the style of classic 17th century Dutch painters. Occasionally, these graceful and skillfully composed portraits provoke conversation and curiosity, as he often uses non-traditional materials to recreate the Dutch portraits, such as a grocery bag or paper towels as headpieces. He also has the customary lighting and austerity in his photographs that are reminiscent of masters such as Vermeer. Amstel Gallery, Amsterdam. (http://www.amstelgallery.com/)

Jill Nathanson is a talented painter who makes magic on canvas by using a technique of poured polymer, which forms overlapping layers of translucency that provide unfamiliar albeit fresh gorgeous hues and are delightful to examine and savor. Over the last four decades, she has deepened her study of color dynamics through methodically delving into chance and risk to ultimately create unity. Berry Campbell, New York.

Anthony Caro is one of the titans who played a pivotal role in the development of 20th century sculpture. He is a well-respected abstract sculptor who came to the public’s attention with a show at the Whitechapel Gallery in 1963, where he exhibited large abstract works that stood directly on the ground. He joins Mark di Suvero and Chamberlain in providing history with a completely new voice from the way sculpture was previously perceived, and he was remarkably influential in the development of three-dimensional art.

Thomas Downing, like Anthony Caro, was a great explorer of forms and movement, and this untitled painting on canvas of repeat dot irregular patterns is historically a fascinating picture when you consider it was executed prior to 1960, over forty years before Yayoi Kusuma’s overall dot paintings and Damien Hirst’s recent massive spot paintings. The only real difference is that the work illustrated here seems far superior and engagingly more handsome than others who incorporate spots. CONNERSMITH., Washington D.C.

Damien Hirst has been the art world’s enfant terrible whose eclectic vision and preoccupation with life and death have manifested itself in subjects such as floating sharks in formaldehyde to prescription pill cabinets that could either cure you or kill you. Fortunately, butterflies are safe and incredibly beautiful themes that like Hirst’s identifiable spots, have become striking iconic monuments in contemporary art. Arcature Fine Art, Palm Beach.

Modern Native Feasts

Modern Native Feasts


Native American cuisine comes of age in this elegant, contemporary collection that reinterprets and updates traditional Native recipes with modern, healthy twists. Andrew George Jr. was head chef for aboriginal foods at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver; his imaginative menus reflect the diverse new culinary landscape while being mindful of an ages-old reverence for the land and sea, reflecting the growing interest in a niche cuisine that is rapidly moving into the mainstream to become the “next big thing” among food trends. Andrew also works actively at making Native foods healthier and more nutritious, given that Native peoples suffer from diabetes at twice the rates of non-Natives; his recipes are lighter, less caloric, and include Asian touches, such as bison ribs with Thai spices, and a sushi roll with various cooked fish wrapped in nori. Other dishes include venison barley soup, wild berry crumble, seas asparagus salad, and buffalo tourtière. Full of healthy, delicious, and thoroughly North American fare, Modern Native Feasts is the first Native American foods cookbook to go beyond the traditional and take a step into the twenty-first century. Andrew George Jr. is a member of the Wet’suwet’en Nation in British Columbia. He participated on the first all-Native team at the Culinary Olympics in Frankfurt, Germany, and in 2012 was part of a group of chefs from twenty-five countries on a US State Department initiative called “Culinary Diplomacy: Promoting Cultural Understanding Through Food.” His first book, A Feast for All Seasons, was published in 2010.

Exploring Psychedelic Trance and Electronic Dance Music in Modern Culture

Exploring Psychedelic Trance and Electronic Dance Music in Modern Culture


The popularization and cult-like following of electronic music has provoked new relations between men and machines, art and technology, and modern shamans and disc jockeys. New technologies and multimedia tools have awakened neo-ritual practices through the emergence of Psychedelic Trance parties, evoking tribal experiences inspired by a new shamanism, mediated by high-tech guide elements. Exploring Psychedelic Trance and Electronic Dance Music in Modern Culture investigates the expansive scope of Electronic Music Dance Culture (EMDC), the rise of Psychedelic Trance culture, and their relationship with new digital platforms. Drawing from perspectives in sociology, anthropology, psychology, aesthetics and the arts, religious studies, information technologies, multimedia communication, shamanism, and ritualism, this book analyzes the impact of new technologies on individual and collective behaviors in cyberspace. This innovative reference source is ideal for use by academicians, researchers, upper-level students, practitioners, and theorists. Focusing on a variety of topics relating to sub-cultures, human behavior, and popular culture, this title features timely research on alternative culture, electronic music festivals, ethnography, music and religion, psychedelic drugs, Psytrance, rave culture, and trance parties.

Juan de Mariana and Early Modern Spanish Political Thought

Juan de Mariana and Early Modern Spanish Political Thought


The Jesuit Juan de Mariana (1535-1624) is one of the most misunderstood authors in the history of political thought. His treatise De rege et regis institutione libri tres (1599) is dedicated to Philip III of Spain. It was to present the principles of statecraft by which the young king was to abide. Yet soon after its publication, Catholic and Calvinist politiques in France started branding Mariana a regicide. De rege was said to empower the private individual to kill a legitimate king. Its ‘pernicious doctrines’ were blamed for the murder of Henry IV in 1610, and it was burned at the order of the parlement of Paris. Modern historians have tended to build on this interpretation and consider De rege a stepping stone towards modern pluralist and democratic thought. Nothing could be further from the truth. The notion of Mariana as an uncompromising theorist of resistance is in fact based on the distorted reading of a few select sentences from the first book of the treatise. This study offers a radical departure from the old view of Mariana as an early modern constitutionalist thinker and advocate of regicide. Thorough analysis of the text as a whole reveals him to be a shrewd and creative operator of political language as well as a champion of the church and bishops of Castile. The argument as a whole is informed by a Catholic-Augustinian view of human nature. Mariana’s bleak, at times downright cynical view of man imparts focus and coherence to a text that challenges well established terminological boundaries and political discourses. In the first instance, his deeply pessimistic appraisal of human virtue justifies his disregard of positive law. He is thus able to mould diverse elements extracted from Roman and canon law, scholastic theology and humanist literature into a deliberately equivocal discourse of reason of state. Finally, this secular interpretation of the world of politics is cleverly yoked to a thoroughly clerical agenda of reform. In fact, reason of state

The Islamic State’s Murder of a Modern Day Monuments Man

2015-08-21-1440185698-1618310-1122_8.JPG
Photo Credit: Anna Bottinelli Edsel

Khaled al-Asaad, 83-year-old retired Syrian archaeologist known admiringly as “Mr. Palmyra” for his extraordinary knowledge of that revered 2,000 year-old Roman era city, has been killed.

Jihadists of the Islamic State publicly beheaded al-Asaad, and then hung his body by his wrists from a traffic light positioning his head on the ground below. Attached to his waist was a sign listing his alleged crimes: attending “infidel conferences,” and acting as “the director of idolatry” for his lifelong passion in documenting and sharing with the public the artistic and cultural history of Palmyra, his birthplace. Syria’s Director of Antiquities provided a more rational explanation: despite repeated questioning, al-Asaad refused to divulge the location of statues and other works of art that had been removed from the city for safekeeping prior to the arrival of Islamic State militants.

The death of Khaled al-Asaad is not the first in the service to the arts during times of war. In March 1945, British Monuments Man Major Ronald Balfour, was killed by shrapnel relocating treasures from Christ the King Church in Cleve, Germany. The following month, machine-gun fire claimed the life of American Monuments Man Captain Walter Huchthausen while checking on a report of stolen art. Although scholar-soldiers, Balfour and Huchthausen wore military uniforms; al-Asaad was a civilian more than twice their age, armed with little more than his extensive knowledge of Palmyra’s once great civilization.

Khaled al-Asaad’s determination to protect Palmyra and its treasures parallels the service of the great French heroine, Rose Valland. From 1940-1944, this unassuming woman worked as a custodian of small Paris museum that the Nazis had commandeered for their looting operation, all the while spying on their activities. Twice accused and threatened with summary execution, Valland persisted, and fortuitously so. Her secret notes recording the arrival of stolen art and its subsequent shipment to Germany proved instrumental to the Monuments Men’s discovery of more than twenty thousand works of art. Valland would later join the Monuments Men and continue the search for missing works of art until her death in 1980.

The horrific death of Khaled al-Asaad, like those of Balfour and Huchthausen, underscores the high cost of protecting works of art and other cultural treasures during war. Balfour and Huchthausen knew this before volunteering; still, they wanted to serve. According to his son, Walid al-Asaad, al-Asaad knew it too, choosing to remain in his hometown despite ample opportunity to flee prior to ISIL’s encirclement of Palmyra.

Is art worth a life? It is a question that goes to the very soul of the work of the Monuments Men during World War II, and that of hundreds of volunteers, then and now, who have risked their lives to save our shared cultural heritage. Supreme Allied Commander General Dwight D. Eisenhower believed that the answer must be “no,” stating clearly that a human life counts “infinitely” more. Monuments Man Captain Deane Keller, a 42 year-old professor of art at Yale University and an artist himself, agreed. Keller, whose three-year long military service in Italy included a year and a half in or near combat, once wrote, “no work of art is worth the life of a single American boy.”

But Keller made a critical distinction between risking one’s life to save a work of art versus risking one’s life fighting for a cause. Like his fellow Monuments Men, Keller considered it a privilege to represent his country to preserve the freedom of creative expression by artists just as he did preserving the greatest examples of what artists before him had created. General Eisenhower spoke of this during a 1946 speech stating, “That, for democracy at least, there always stands beyond the materialism and destructiveness of war the ideals for which it is fought.”

In making his case for cultural preservation to President Roosevelt in 1943, Monuments Man Lt. Commander George Stout said it clearly and dispassionately:

To safeguard these things will show respect for the beliefs and customs of all men and will bear witness that these things belong not only to a particular people but also to the heritage of mankind. To safeguard these things is part of the responsibility that lies on the governments of the United Nations.

Roosevelt agreed. Balfour, Huchthausen and now Khalid al-Asaad, honored those lofty ideals; the United Nations has not.

In a speech his death precluded delivering, Monuments Man Ronald Balfour made an eloquent and enduring case for the preservation of cultural treasures. Its timeless warning would have resonated with Khalid al-Asaad, who knew that few places in our world offer a richer window to the past than Palmyra.

“No age lives entirely alone; every civilization is formed not merely by its own achievements but by what it has inherited from the past. If these things are destroyed, we have lost a part of our past, and we shall be the poorer for it.”

We ignore Balfour’s wisdom at our own peril.

New – Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900) presents himself several times as a physician of culture. He considers it his task to make a diagnosis of the culture of his age, to point to the latent or patent diseases, but also to the possibilities to overcome them. His diagnosis, prognosis, and prescriptions implied an overcoming of traditional interpretation of what is going on in the main domains of culture: knowledge, morality, religion, and art.

Modern Software Tools for Scientific Computing

Modern Software Tools for Scientific Computing


Looking back at the years that have passed since the realization of the very first electronic, multi-purpose computers, one observes a tremendous growth in hardware and software performance. Today, researchers and engi- neers have access to computing power and software that can solve numerical problems which are not fully understood in terms of existing mathemati- cal theory. Thus, computational sciences must in many respects be viewed as experimental disciplines. As a consequence, there is a demand for high- quality, flexible software that allows, and even encourages, experimentation with alternative numerical strategies and mathematical models. Extensibil- ity is then a key issue; the software must provide an efficient environment for incorporation of new methods and models that will be required in fu- ture problem scenarios. The development of such kind of flexible software is a challenging and expensive task. One way to achieve these goals is to in- vest much work in the design and implementation of generic software tools which can be used in a wide range of application fields. In order to provide a forum where researchers could present and discuss their contributions to the described development, an International Work- shop on Modern Software Tools for Scientific Computing was arranged in Oslo, Norway, September 16-18, 1996. This workshop, informally referred to as Sci Tools ’96, was a collaboration between SINTEF Applied Mathe- matics and the Departments of Informatics and Mathematics at the Uni- versity of Oslo.

The Birth of the Modern Mum

The Birth of the Modern Mum


So much of modern motherhood is targeted at looking good even when you feel crap and making your baby look good even though he or she won’t settle or feed or stop crying, all in the shortest time frame possible. The Miranda Kerr and Heidi Klums of the world make it look easy; have a baby and get back on the runway 2 minutes later with a flat stomach, silky hair and glowing skin. What about the mothers who get acne from pregnancy, or whose hair turns grey, or can’t loose their baby belly in 10 seconds flat? This book is for them. The Birth of the Modern Mum looks at the serious issues such as Postnatal Depression (PND), relationship changes and physical changes that mothers face in their first year with a new baby while still providing light-hearted quick fixes that any mother can implement in short period of time. In association with The Gidget Foundation, and industry support from Dr Vijay Roach and Dr John Irvine, The Birth of the Modern Mum is sure to become a household title for all new mums. “No man could have written such a sensitive, practical and humorous handbook for the modern mum.” – Dr John Irvine. “Every day I am asked to recommend a chronicle of wisdom for pregnancy, birth and mothering. Written with warmth, compassion, genuine insight and humour, Heather Irvine has given us just what was needed.” – Dr Vijay Roach, Obstetrician and Gynaecologist

3 Questionable Pieces Of Dating Advice From Aziz Ansari’s ‘Modern Romance’

modern romance

Aziz Ansari, known to many as the dapper Tom Haverford on “Parks and Recreation,” and known to still more as a brilliant, subversive comedian, wants you to find love. Yes, you. (Don’t worry about him, he’s already found it and it sounds pretty great.)

His new book, Modern Romance, features a zany cover and the opening line “Oh shit!”, but let there be no confusion: This is not exactly a humor book. Aziz explains in the introduction that he’s never had interest in writing a humor book because he “thought stand-up was the best medium for [him].” Instead, he developed an obsession with the modern dating landscape and decided to write a book about that, collaborating with a sociologist Eric Klinenberg to conduct an enormous amount of research on dating and relationships.

Modern Romance compiles numerous anecdotes from his stand-up, their focus groups, and a subreddit they set up, as well as studies and conversations with prominent psychologists and relationship experts. Want to know all about dating these days, plus occasional, weird Photoshopped graphics? This book has that total package.

Aziz doesn’t position this as an advice book, either, but there’s no avoiding a certain degree of prescriptivism when it comes to analyzing what does and doesn’t work in the dating sphere. He points out that research suggests having lengthy online interactions prior to meeting up isn’t helpful, and can waste your time and emotional energy — that seems to be true, and the underlying message is, well, don’t do that.

With that in mind, my skeptical, dating-averse brain began automatically scanning the book for awful advice. I’m hardly qualified to do so, considering the following: I am in a relationship that predated the rise of Tinder; I used OkCupid for roughly a week at a time at six-month intervals during my single years; I once told three guys I was shutting down my OkCupid account in large part because I couldn’t think of a more tactful way to avoid seeing them again (they were so nice!). And then I actually shut down my OkCupid account so I wouldn’t be a liar. I have never been on more than three dates with anyone but my boyfriend, and I never figured out how to get in on the booty-call game. Out of the two of us, Aziz must be more qualified to give relationship advice.

And yet … some of the dating advice in Modern Romance really does seem a bit questionable. Here are the three most ehhhh bits of romantic guidance he offers to the single reader:

aziz ansari

“Participating in novel and exciting activities increases our attraction to people … If I look back on my dating life, I wonder how much better I (and the other person) would have fared if I had done something exciting rather than just get a stupid drink at a local bar.”

Now, sure, being nervous or excited about something else can make you feel more attracted to the person you’re with; Aziz references a famous study involving a sturdy bridge, a rickety bridge and an attractive woman handing out her phone number to men at the end. The men who just faced near-certain death on the perilous rocks below were significantly more likely to give her a ring. “The Bachelor” also has this figured out, which is why every date involves free-falling off a skyscraper or playing with venomous serpents. Afterward, every woman is convinced she adores the man who free-fell with her. That, or her legs are just shaky with pure terror, but who can tell the difference?

Question: So why do all those “Bachelor” couples break up? Seriously though. If your attraction was just misfiring anxiety neurons, what happens when those neurons chill out? Do you have to spend your entire relationship going hang-gliding? He relays a couple anecdotes in which an exciting, unconventional date made an impression or led to a second, but doesn’t say any of them led to true love. Meanwhile, Aziz looks back regretfully on all those “stupid drink[s] at a local bar,” but his first date with the woman he loves was just plain old dinner. (My first date with my boyfriend, full disclosure, was a stupid drink at a local bar.) I bet Aziz’s first date was as thrilling and heart-pounding as my first date was, because sharing a conversation with the right person can be more than enough. Personally I’m kinda glad I filtered out the other people earlier on instead of tricking myself with adrenaline rushes.

You know, unless it has lasting effects. In which case I’m down to handle snakes with my gentleman friend, For Love. It’s worth noting, however, that these studies typically involve single individuals whose attraction to strangers is being observed or rated. In a 2003 study that examined sexual attraction after a roller-coaster ride (wheee!), single riders showed a notable uptick in their ratings of strangers’ photos after the ride, but coupled riders showed no increase in attraction either to photos or to each other. Whomp whomp.

tinder dating

“So based on these data, the answers are clear: If you are a woman, take a high-angle selfie, with cleavage, while you’re underwater near some buried treasure.”

To be clear, I know Aziz’s tongue is jammed so far up his cheek it’s basically in his ear. That said, he goes into a fair amount of detail about what photos get you more messages on dating sites, suggesting that using the right photos to get more messages is part of being “good” at online dating. For a woman, this means coyly smiling, high-angle selfies, which makes sense, on a basic level. She looks friendly but also a bit mysterious, and the angle tends to be flattering — it emphasizes your eyes and makes your chin seem to taper delicately, creating a more traditionally feminine visual.

Question: But if you’re looking for the right person, not just a person, is attracting higher numbers across the board necessarily the way to go? Women already tend to be flooded with generally distasteful attention on dating sites. Try pre-filtering the shallow dolts by using normal photos, or only using watercolors you’ve painted of your cat, or by mentioning in your profile that you’re a vocal feminist (only if true, of course). In my OkCupid experience, the latter cut down on gross come-ons and allowed me to easily find and meet up with a few really awesome dudes. If I hadn’t gotten tired and quit dating after about six tries, I probably would have met someone perfect!

Men, this may not be as much of a problem for you, but still — do you want all that additional attention from women who wouldn’t notice you if your photo wasn’t quite right? Maybe you do, in which case, take Aziz’s advice. You should really read his book, but here’s a hint: Do not look at the camera.

text message

“All the psychological principles seem to point to waiting being a strategy that works for singles who are trying to build attraction … When you are texting someone less frequently, you are, in effect, creating a scarcity of you and making yourself more attractive.”

Aziz pulls out a lot of psychological research to explain why people ignoring us makes us want them, and he’s not wrong. We spend time thinking about whether they’re actually into us or not. We wish we had more from them, because we can’t easily get a response from them, let alone time with them. Much like a cute dress we see in the window of a boutique, we obsess over it more when we feel like we can’t afford it — once we buy it, it just sits in our closet like all our other crap. Don’t you want potential romantic partners to obsess over you?

Question: But … all things in moderation, right? You don’t want to deluge a suitor with texts, love letters and DMs before the romance has had a chance to naturally ripen, leaving the poor guy or gal wishing they had the opportunity to miss you occasionally. On the other hand, that stomach-churning obsession over whether he hasn’t texted back because he’s really busy at work or because he met a supermodel in the last 12 hours and is already shopping for her engagement ring isn’t exactly healthy, especially once the romance has become established. It’s a sign of insecurity about your relationship.

So, okay, space out your texts so your message convo doesn’t feel like a frenzied textual Ping-Pong match. But don’t start your relationship off with a pattern of psychological antagonism! A 2013 study about the impact of texting on relationships suggested that while texting to express affection increased relationship quality, texting hurtful things or attempting to resolve issues over text decreased it. Moreover, the authors wrote, “even communication instigated through technology connections may help emerging adults feel that their romantic partners are accessible, responsive, and engaged, or vice-versa.”

Sensing this textual availability from one’s partner, they note, makes one more secure in the relationship and therefore more comfortable exploring beyond it. If your girlfriend is always good about texting you back when she can, then the occasional failure to do so may feel less threatening — your security in the relationship will allow you to assume that the delay isn’t malicious and that you’ll be fine until the response comes. So, make the other person feel secure that you’ll respond! Let them make you feel secure! Be vulnerable! Generally just, I don’t know, act like a sane, nonwithholding person.

So I wasn’t sold by every page of the book. Still, even my deeply cynical, introvert’s brain found most of the insights and tips in Modern Romance to be pretty solid. If you, or your highly eligible son or daughter, are navigating the treacherous waters of dating today, you’ll want to know which parts of people’s online dating profiles are helpful and which are simply leading you astray, for example, and this book has got you covered.

Plus, Aziz has a serious girlfriend now, so he must have figured something out.

So as a bonus, I’ll leave you with my favorite piece of non-questionable dating advice from Modern Romance:

“With so many romantic options, instead of trying to explore them all, make sure you properly invest in people and give them a fair chance before moving on to the next one.”

One date almost never gives us a real shot at getting to know a new person well enough to make a decision about a relationship, but if you feel like there’s another option around every corner, you might not want to “waste” time on a second date with someone who didn’t blow you away. Or, if you’re a socially anxious introvert like me, you might not want to “waste” time on a second date with someone when you could, instead, be at home enjoying a glass of wine and a book with your cat. Aziz points out, “A person may seem just okay, but if you really invest time in the relationship, maybe they’ll be greater than you assume.” Familiarity does tend to lead to warm feelings, and a nonstop merry-go-round of new strangers means no familiarity. Ever!

Aziz also remembers a time when he felt scared about committing to a relationship when he wasn’t yet totally head over heels in love — but he made the decision to dive in and give the budding romance its best shot. Dive into your relationships, treat them like a project shared by you and your partner, and you’re bound to get better results than if you sit back and wait for them to impress you. “Modern romance” notwithstanding, it’s true today as it was for our grandparents. Good call, Aziz.

Bridget Barkan Puts A Modern Spin On A Judy Garland Classic In Honor Of Homeless LGBT Youth

Among gay audiences, Judy Garland is one of few performers who never seems to go out of style.

New York singer-actress Bridget Barkan proved that point at 2014’s “Night of a Thousand Judys” when she crooned a tender version of “As Long as He Needs Me,” which was introduced in the Broadway musical “Oliver!” and performed by Garland on her television series, “The Judy Garland Show,” in 1963.

Now in its fifth year, “Night of a Thousand Judys” — which is a special presentation of New York- and Los Angeles-based actor, writer and performer Justin Sayre’s variety show, “The Meeting,” and timed to coincide with LGBT Pride Month — will benefit the Ali Forney Center, an advocacy group dedicated to homeless lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) teens and young adults.

As in previous installments, performers from Broadway, television and downtown cabaret will hit New York’s Merkin Concert Hall at the Kaufman Center June 1 to croon songs made famous by Garland during her fabled career. The 2015 lineup includes Melissa Errico, Liz Callaway, Michael McElroy, Lauren Worsham and The Skivvies, among others.

Sayre interviewed Ali Forney Center founder Carl Siciliano for his “Sparkle & Circulate with Justin Sayre” podcast. You can check that out here.

Meanwhile, you can also view some previous performances from “The Meeting” on Sayre’s official YouTube page. For more Sayre, head to Facebook and Twitter, too.

“Night of a Thousand Judys” plays New York’s Merkin Concert Hall at the Kaufman Center on June 1. Head here for more details.

Diego Rivera: Murals for the Museum of Modern Art

Diego Rivera: Murals for the Museum of Modern Art


In 1931, Diego Rivera was the subject of The Museum of Modern Art’s second monographic exhibition, which set new attendance records in its five-week run. The Museum brought Rivera to New York six weeks before the show’s opening and gave him on-site studio space. There he produced five “portable murals” -large blocks of frescoed plaster, slaked lime and wood that feature bold images drawn from Mexican subject matter and address themes of revolution and class inequity. After the opening, to great publicity, Rivera added three more murals, now taking on New York subjects through monumental images of the urban working class and the city during the Great Depression. Published in conjunction with an exhibition that brings together key works made for Rivera’s 1931 show, this catalogue casts the artist as a highly cosmopolitan figure who traveled between Russia, Mexico and the United States and examines the intersection of artmaking and radical politics in the 1930s. Illustrated with reproductions of each panel as well as related paintings, drawings, prints and documentary photographs, the book’s essays investigate the international politics of muralism, Rivera’s history with MoMA, the iconography of the portable murals and technical aspects of the artist’s working process. Diego Rivera (1886-1957) was a central figure in the development of Mexican muralism, an ambitious public art initiative intended to relay Mexico’s ideals after the Revolution (1910-1920). A highly cosmopolitan artist, Rivera had spent many years in Europe before returning to Mexico in 1921, and in 1927 he traveled to the Soviet Union where he met Alfred Barr, the soon-to-be founding director of The Museum of Modern Art, New York. Rivera’s artistic celebrity benefitted from major commissions in the United States, including murals for the Pacific Stock Exchange, the California School of Fine Arts in San Francisco, MoMA and the Detroit Institute of Arts. By the 1930s, he enjoyed an unrivaled status at the

Bishops and Power in Early Modern England

Bishops and Power in Early Modern England


Armed with pistols and wearing jackboots, Bishop Henry Compton rode out in 1688 against his King but in defence of the Church of England and its bishops. His actions are a dramatic but telling indication of what was at stake for bishops in early modern England and Compton’s action at the height of the Restoration was the culmination of more than a century and a half of religious controversy that engulfed bishops. Bishops were among the most important instruments of royal, religious, national and local authority in seventeenth-century England. While their actions and ideas trickled down to the lower strata of the population, poor opinions of bishops filtered back up, finding expression in public forums, printed pamphlets and more subversive forms including scurrilous verse and mocking illustrations. Bishops and Power in Early Modern England explores the role and involvement of bishops at the centre of both government and belief in early modern England. It probes the controversial actions and ideas which sparked parliamentary agitation against them, demands for religious reform, and even war. Bishops and Power in Early Modern England examines arguments challenging episcopal authority and the counter-arguments which stressed the necessity of bishops in England and their status as useful and godly ministers. The book argues that episcopal writers constructed an identity as reformed agents of church authority. Charting the development of this identity over a hundred and fifty years, from the Reformation to the Restoration, this book traces the history of early modern England from an original and highly significant perspective. This book engages with many aspects of the social, political and religious history of early modern England and will therefore be key reading for undergraduates and postgraduates, and researchers working in the early modern field, and anyone who has an interest in this period of history.

Modern Lifestyles: Tips for Travelling on a Budget

Modern Lifestyles: Tips for Travelling on a Budget


ABOUT THE BOOK We’ve all read stories about adventurous travelers who backpacked across the Himalayas and slept in the wilds every night. Or perhaps you know someone who traipsed through Europe in their youth, staying in dorm-like hostels and eating only bread and cheese for months at a time. These stories are entertaining to read about, but it’s not always fun to travel this way. It’s risky and can even be dangerous, especially if you’re completely alone and in need of assistance at some point. In addition, most of us don’t really want to experience the adventures of travel if we’re going to be constantly worried about where our next meal is coming from or how we’re going to be able to afford a motel room that night. The good news is that you can have gypsy feet without living like a gypsy. Thanks to competitive pricing within the travel industry, air fares and hotel accommodations can easily be found at cut-rate prices. Discount railway tickets and car rental rates are also available for those who have the patience to do a little bargain hunting, and half-price coupons for resort attractions are featured on hundreds of websites. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK During shoulder-season months, plane fares are discounted and hotel and motel rates are lower as well. In addition, many local restaurants offer two-for-one deals during the off-season, and tourist attractions offer discounted tickets and two-for-one passes. Once you choose your destination, find out when the off-season is, and if possible, plan to travel during those months. You’ll not only save a great deal of money; you’ll also save time, and wear and tear by not having to stand in line for attractions. If the weather cooperates, resort towns can be a lot of fun during shoulder-season months because you’ll get a better opportunity to experience the town in the same way that the locals do. By not having to fight high-season crowds, you’ll also be able to enjoy a more peaceful, leisurely vacation. Traveling of

The Modern Practice of Adult Education

The Modern Practice of Adult Education


Briton challenges the dominant depoliticized vision of adult education, calling into question the modernist tenets and moral integrity of contemporary adult education practice. By examining his own struggle to escape the confines of modernist thought, the author delivers a succinct yet decisive critique of modern educational practice and challenges educators to reconceptualize their field of endeavor as a postmodern pedagogy of engagement. In refusing to deny its conjectural foundations, to mask its tenuous structure, or to defend its precarious integrity, the book assumes a form that distinguishes it markedly from its modernist counterparts. In favoring commentary over empirical evidence, a multiplicity of voices over a prescriptive narrative, the development of an ethical attitude toward practice over formulaic prescriptions for practice, and inter- over intra-disciplinary sources to substantiate its claims, this work calls into question a whole range of modernist predilections. By repeatedly breaching the narrowly prescribed parameters of adult education’s orthodoxy and constantly promoting reflective inquiry, this book reveals how different, yet equally valid, forms of evidence can be drawn upon to develop an ethical postmodern perspective that calls the modern instrumental practice of adult education into question.

Bad Faith: When Religious Belief Undermines Modern Medicine

Bad Faith: When Religious Belief Undermines Modern Medicine


In Bad Faith, acclaimed physician and author Paul Offit gives readers a never-before-seen look into the minds of those who choose to medically martyr themselves, or their children, in the name of religion. Never afraid of controversy, Offit takes a stark and disturbing look at our surprising capacity to risk the health and safety of children in service of our beliefs. He tells the story of two devoted Christian Scientists who are shocked and heartbroken when their infant dies of a treatable disease; of orthodox Jewish parents who risk infecting their babies with herpes during an unsterile circumcision ritual; and of a man who believes his faith can cure his son’s diabetes and, when that tragically fails, tries to raise him from the dead. The tangled relationship between religion and medicine may appear to afflict only certain pockets of America, but this phenomenon reaches much further – whether you are seeking treatment at a Catholic hospital or trying to keep your kids safe from diseases spread by their unvaccinated peers, you’ll likely encounter these issues”-Provided by publisher.

The AMT SS-11 3-Channel Dual Tube Guitar Preamp boasts minimum size with maximum functionality for full tube overdrive using the highest quality components. The SS-11 is brother to the SS-20, but designed to be different. While the SS-20 is the more aggressive “METAL” pedal, the SS-11 was intended and manufactured for that famous CLASSIC tube driven over saturated guitar tone that eveyone loves and craves. Description of SS-11 Channels: LEAD channel provides thick, viscous sound for playing both chunky rhythm parts and singing solos with excellent presence. TREBLE SHIFT toggle takes your lead sound into bright mode, similar to the good old “Treble Booster” pedals of the 80’s that guitarists used to enhance their solos. OVERDRIVE channel features a more open structure of the sound. This is the SS-11’s sweet spot, offering tubey and saturated sound, much like that of the classic tube amps of the 70’s and 80’s. A wide range of sensitivity adjustment results in the sound starting from light crunch to thick and bright lead channel-like sound with real tube tone. If you’re looking for something other than that dull sounding solid-state OD or TS clone sound, thFully tube-based 4 – stage overdrive channel with DUAL TUBE design (2 x 12AX7 or 2 x 62- tubes) with high-voltage anode voltage (+300 V) Three separate channels: CLEAN / OVERDRIVE / LEAD Individual gain sensitivity and output level controls for clean and crunch/lead channels TREBLE SHIFT toggle switch to enter bright mode for that added punch of high end FX LOOP for external effects OUTPUT jack for connecting to both specialized guitar amplifiers with a standard level of 0 dB (GUITAR AMP mode) and a CAB SIM MIXER out with a standard level of 10dB and a guitar cabinet simulation The preamp outputs are equipped with sophisticated solid-state buffers SS-11 incorporates new field-effect transistor-based guitar cabinet impulse response emulator prossessing Improved naturalness of sound when connected to line input Spec

Jesse Tyler Ferguson Responds After Tuc Watkins Deems ‘Modern Family’ Couple The Gay Equivalent Of ‘Blackface’

Jesse Tyler Ferguson took to social media after a fellow actor criticized the portrayal of a same-sex couple on “Modern Family” as being “the gay equivalent of ‘blackface.’

The 39-year-old Ferguson, who has nabbed five Emmy nominations for his work on “Modern Family,” said he knew “lots of guys” who could relate to Cam (Eric Stonestreet) and Mitch (Ferguson).

We can’t be expected to represent every gay person,” he wrote on Facebook. “We can only represent these two people. Also, Mitch is basically a version of me…so I never know how to take it when people say
that he is stereotypical. And in defense of Cam, I still can’t figure out how a clown & football coach who also happens to be gay is a stereotype.”

He went on to note, “As a closeted kid of the ’80s I would have loved to have had a show like ‘Modern Family’ to watch with my parents. It would have meant a lot to me to see who I secretly was reflected on television. TV has come a long way and it continues to forge new ground.”

You can check out Ferguson’s full Facebook post here.

Ferguson’s remarks followed those of “Desperate Housewives” actor Tuc Watkins. The openly gay Watkins, who played Bob Hunter on “Housewives” and can currently be seen on “Awkward,” said he had “a hard time laughing at the gay guys” on “Modern Family,” arguing that the show’s portrayal of a same-sex couple “doesn’t feel ‘modern’ at all.”

“It feels a little bit like the gay equivalent of ‘blackface,'” he added, according to reports. “Sure, people come in all shapes, sizes, etc. So why are we fed such ’80s stereotypes every week?”

Earlier this year, “Modern Family” came under fire from the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer, who argued that the ABC series was “designed to make you think that same-sex households are wonderful” and “the optimum nurturing environment for children,” while depicting heterosexual marriage as “bondage, dreary,” and “gloomy.”

“People are just watching TV to be entertained,” Fischer said at the time, “not realizing that their view of life is being twisted in a way that’s very harmful to them and harmful to our culture.”

After years at the margins of medical history, the relationshipbetween war and medicine is at last beginning to move centre-stage. The essays in this volume focus on one important aspect of thatrelationship: the practice and development of medicine within thearmed forces from the late nineteenth century through to the endof the Second World War. During this crucial period, medicinecame to occupy an important position in military life, especiallyduring the two world wars when manpower was at a premium. Good medical provisions were vital to the conservation of man-power, protecting servicemen from disease and returning the sickand wounded to duty in the shortest possible time. A detailedknowledge of the serviceman’s mind and body enabled the authori-ties to calculate and standardise rations, training and disciplinaryprocedures.

Modern Ferrite Technology

Modern Ferrite Technology


For the past seventy years, ferrites (magnetic ceramics) have been prized for a range of properties that has no equivalent in the existing metal magnetic materials. They have contributed to many important advances in electronics and new high-performance products are appearing all the time. Ferrite technology has produced greater progress in the past 15 years since the first edition was published. Many of the semiconductor and IC technology responsible for the computer and Internet explosion would not have been possible without the magnetic materials technology needed for powering and otherwise exploiting those developments. ‘Modern Ferrite Technology, 2nd Ed’ offers the readers an expert overview of the latest ferrite advances as well as their applications in electronic components. This volume develops the interplay among material properties, component specification and device requirements using ferrites. Throughout, emphasis is placed on practical technological concerns as opposed to mathematical and physical aspects of the subject. The book traces the origin of the magnetic effect in ferrites from the level of the simplest particle and the increases the scope to the larger and larger hierarchies. From the desired magnetic properties the author deduces the physical and chemical material parameters, taking into consideration major chemistry, impurity levels, ceramic microstructures and grain boundary effects. He then discusses the processing conditions and associated conditions required for implementation. In addition to conventional ceramic techniques, he describes non-conventional methods such as coprecipitation, co-spray roasting and single crystal growth. The second section of this book deals with a complete listing of the many important applications in the field including ferrites for permanent magnet, telecommunications, power supplies, memory systems magnetic recording and microwave applications. The function of ferrites in each of these applications is des.

King Cotton in Modern America

King Cotton in Modern America


King Cotton in Modern America places the once kingly crop in historical perspective, showing how “cotton culture” was actually part of the larger culture of the United States despite many regarding its cultivation and sources as hopelessly backward. Leaders in the industry, acting through the National Cotton Council, organized the various and often conflicting segments to make the commodity a viable part of the greater American economy. The industry faced new challenges, particularly the rise of foreign competition in production and the increase of man-made fibers in the consumer market.Modernization and efficiency became key elements for cotton planters. The expansion of cotton- growing areas into the Far West after 1945 enabled American growers to compete in the world market. Internal dissension developed between the traditional cotton growing regions in the South and the new areas in the West, particularly over the USDA cotton allotment program. Mechanization had profound social and economic impacts. Through music and literature, and with special emphasis placed on the meaning of cotton to African Americans in the lore of Memphis’s Beale Street, blues music, and African American migration off the land, author D. Clayton Brown carries cotton’s story to the present.

Jon Stewart Gives ‘Schoolhouse Rock’ A Modern Makeover On ‘The Daily Show’

An entire generation learned how a bill becomes a law thanks to “Schoolhouse Rock,” but the old “I’m Just a Bill” video doesn’t fully capture how lawmaking works today.

So on Tuesday night’s “Daily Show,” Jon Stewart used the current inaction in Congress as the inspiration for a new version of the classic tune.

The new rendition is called “How a Bill Becomes an Ad,” and it perfectly captures how absolutely nothing ever gets done in Washington.

Uniquely Asian, uniquely modern, proudly classical: Ballet Philippines to tour U.S., Canada

2014-09-13-LaRevolucionFilipina.png

As the ballet world struggles to remain relevant and to stem the exodus of an audience that would rather sit at home and watch dance in 90-second spurts on SYTYCD than dress up for the opera house, charges of corruption, racism and sexism have plagued the world’s leading companies.

Meanwhile, the P.R. juggernaut for mega-stars like Russian firebrand Natalia Osipova and Under Armour gladiatrix Misty Copeland is frequent cause for heartburn among artistic directors used to managing their realms in the imperial manner. Copeland is one of very few black ballerinas ever to be cast as Odette-Odile in Swan Lake, fueling the already heated debate over whether greater diversity in the casting of ballet classics is the key to revitalizing the art form, or evidence of deteriorating aesthetic standards.

For several generations, however, the aesthetic boundaries of classical dance have been stretched, with far less uproar, by Asian dancers. Yoko Morishita, Li Cunxin, Tina Santos, Miyako Yoshida, Anna Villadolid, Maniya Barredo, Nicolas Pacaña, Rey Dizon, Ravenna Tucker, Tetsuya Kumakawa, Yuan Yuan Tan, Chi Cao, Hee Seo, and many others of varying complexions and physiques have played white swans, Teutonic princes and Byronic pirate kings without umpires tossing penalty flags.

2014-09-13-TheHomecomingGala.png

One Asian company in particular has been a prolific source of dancers who, for over 45 years, have filtered into leading ballet and modern dance companies around the globe – including American Ballet Theatre, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater – while it has carved out a unique identity for itself in the intersection between ballet, modern and folk dance.

The company now known as Ballet Philippines sprang from the genius of Alice Reyes – one of two pioneers of modern dance in Asia, the other being Lin Hwai-min, founder of Cloud Gate Dance Theatre. Lin is also an acclaimed novelist, and a student of Chinese opera and the classical court dance of Japan and Korea, while Reyes trained in painting, music, history and foreign policy. Both were mentored by legendary American choreographers – in Reyes’ case: Hanya Holm, Bessie Schoenberg, Alwin Nikolais, Murray Louis, Merce Cunningham. And as Lin did in Taiwan, Reyes cultivated a distinctly Filipino modern dance idiom around indigenous themes and stories, in collaboration with renowned Filipino artists, librettists and composers. In doing so, she created a new outlet not merely for the retelling of historical tales and the celebration of national culture, but also for the expression of political views on issues of contemporary significance.

Her groundbreaking Amada – based on novelist Nick Joaquin’s controversial Summer Solstice, with a score by Lucrecia Kasilag – tackled the twin subjects of women’s emancipation and the native Filipino uprising against colonial Spanish oppression in the mid 19th century. Amada was the first of Reyes’ many works that melded modern dance with traditional Philippine dance, and that collectively helped to define Philippine contemporary dance.

2014-09-13-TheBlueMoonGala.png

From its inception in 1969, however, the Alice Reyes Dance Company – renamed the CCP Dance Company, and later Ballet Philippines – put its dancers through a rigorous ballet training program, overseen by renowned teacher Eddie Elejar (who himself had trained with many of the greats, including Marie Rambert and Olga Preobrajenska of the Russian Imperial Ballet.) It was the only company in Asia that staged the full-length classics in addition to experimental modern work, that commissioned new work from well-known foreign choreographers, and nurtured emerging dancemakers, some of whom would go on to found their own companies around the world. Reyes herself has choreographed full-length classical ballets including Cinderella and Romeo and Juliet, while Ballet Philippines dancers regularly grace the international ballet competition stages: most recently, the luminous Candice Adea and her gallant partner Jean Marc Cordero romped off with the 1st prize in the Senior Women’s Division and the Jury Prize for Best Partnering Technique, respectively, at the 2012 Helsinki International Ballet Competition.

Of course, Miss Reyes’ company does come from the Philippines, is a product of its environment, a well homogenised mixture of Malay and Indian, Chinese, Spanish and modern American – Miss Reyes having studied lengthily with the leading lights of the modern dance movement there. But the influences are seldom overt, never caricatured; a fleeting memory of India in the angle of hand or foot, perhaps, Spain in the movement of an arm, modern America in the cool complexity of some of the choreography and more primitive connections in sometimes barbarically powerful undercurrents of pagan ritual.

Yet all these bits and pieces seem digested and absorbed into something unique, and only in that sense has Miss Reyes in a few years evolved “a national dance form” strongly based on the physical disciplines of classical ballet but entirely uninhibited by any rigid sense of tradition.

– Brian Hoad, dance critic of The Bulletin (Australian national weekly magazine), 1974

2014-09-13-45thSeasonBrochureCover.jpg

For its 45th “Sapphire” anniversary season, current Artistic Director Paul Morales has chosen an eclectic program, which opened in July with Agnes Locsin’s historic La Revolucion Filipina, a controversial and thought-provoking examination of the events around the Philippine revolt against Spain, and of the roles of key revolutionary leaders Apolinario Mabini, Emilio Aguinaldo and Andres Bonifacio, with a score by Ryan Cayabyab and libretto by Dennis Marasigan.

Starting September 19th, Giselle will alternately showcase local stars and Stella Abrera and James Whiteside from American Ballet Theatre, in a restaging by Nonoy Froilan that, according to an enthusiastic critic, “brings sexy back to ballet.”

2014-09-13-Giselle.png

On Sept 26th, 27th and 28th, BP alumni will gather for a series of ‘homecoming’ performances that show off the company’s phenomenal range – from the bravura-packed Don Quixote pas de deux to Norman Walker’s moving and majestic Songs of the Wayfarer, Alice Reyes’ witty Bungkos Suite, George Birkadze’s spectacularly athletic Farandole and his eloquent, yearning R/J, which compresses the tale of Romeo and Juliet into seven minutes.

In February, the company will revive the rock opera Manhid, a cult classic first conceived and staged at the University of the Philippines in 1991 by a group of then little known college students. Among the youthful collaborators were Morales himself, Auraeus Solito – who would later win international acclaim as an indie film director (The Blossoming of Maximo Oliveros, Tuli/Circumcision, Busong/Palawan Fate) – and the band of musicians known as Eraserheads, who would go on to electrify millions and redefine Filipino rock.

2014-09-13-Manhid.png

A political allegory with comic book-style villains and superheroes for the 21st century, Manhid rewrites modern Philippine history, imagining the failure of the 1986 ‘People Power’ revolution – the civil protests that toppled the repressive regime of Ferdinand Marcos. “Manhid, through its theme of apathy, its characters, and story is all about getting back to the root of Filipino-ness, the need for heroism, the power of truth, and most of all, hope, vigilance, and change,” says Morales, who choreographed the original production and for whom this revival closes a poignant circle.

For those fans unable to make it to Manila this season, the company will bring a handful of its signature works to the West Coast of the United States and Canada in October. It has been 16 years since Ballet Philippines has toured the U.S., when they performed at the Kennedy Center, and board president Margie Moran – a former Miss Universe, businesswoman, advocate for social justice, and a tireless promoter of the arts – wants to remind the world of Ballet Philippines’ extraordinary imprint on Asian arts and culture, even as its alumni continue to infiltrate the highest strata of the international dance world: “We ought to celebrate our 45th year, and what better way than to share the gift of dance with Filipinos and Filipinos-at-heart abroad.”
