There is nothing illegal about foreign state-owned institutions investing in American companies. Having a foreign state backed investments made in early investment rounds is not uncommon for a tech company - especially if you consider what Facebook was oriented around and what Russian companies and state-owned banks Read more

Not to be a picky panda and denigrate Tonya Harding’s skill because she was on the forefront of the triple axel in 1991, but the only woman to successfully land a quad in competition is Miki Ando and it was in 2002 at the Junior Grand Prix. There were five previous competition attempts starting 1989, four from Surya Read more

I go to Rafael’s on 46th Street (btwn 5th and 6th) to a woman named Liana. It isn’t cheap, and I’ve no idea what just a cut costs because we’re constantly changing my color, but I love her.

I don’t even think of him as a historian. He’s a filmmaker whose subject is history. Some of the people he interviews for his films are historians, yes, but that doesn’t make him a historian.

Copyright protection attaches to a work, regardless of its method of delivery. You can’t draw a streaming/downloading divide, there are illegal streams and legal ones and illegal downloads and legal ones.

Is that what it is? I thought it was a really poor attempt at a personal jurisdiction joke.

Arugula, pear slices, caramelized onions and aged cheddar with a swipe of mayo over the bread. Mine came open-face (and thus was not really a sandwich, because open-faced sandwiches are not sandwiches) because of the gluten-free bread, but all accounts point to the delicious of the brown bread that regular sandwiches Read more

Montreal! I’m still thinking about the sandwich I ate there over the weekend. Also they have lovely museums, a mountain lookout (you can drive up!), great food, and terribly nice Canadians.

There was a lawsuit about handprint scanner use at a coal mine facility (I think) that brought this up - the employee objected to handprint scanning as his ID’d entry because of a firmly held religious belief about the mark of the beast.

I don’t know if your new building is a fancy one or not, but sometimes fancy buildings have restrictions on when you can move things in or out. Or which elevator you have to use if you are “moving” (e.g., that time I was forced to use the freight elevator to move a TV into a building when I was only going one flight Read more

Try the LOFT or Ann Taylor sale? When I got my first fancy office job I dropped a small pile of cash (for the previously unemployed recent graduate) on items from the sale section and they gave me extra for opening a credit card, which I promptly paid off and cancelled.

If you have the spare $$ or the sewing machine access/skill/friend, I found going up a size and having the waist tailored down made life a lot easier. Much less tugging the skirt around or down after walking or sitting.

I am reorganizing my kitchen! Which I hate the layout of, but am stuck with. Honestly I am probably just making a mess because I will hate what I have done and start over again in a week .

Massachusetts sets the punishment for manslaughter at not more than twenty years in prison or fine of $1000 plus up to 36 months of jail time. That’s what they mean when they say she faces up to twenty years - that is the statutory max, not what the prosecutor has asked/will ask for, or what a judge is required to Read more

Even super tiny utterly minute deficits of the level of thyroid hormones your body wants can mess it up. You can show up within normal ranges and still be just a bit off, and microdoses would make you feel better.

Millennials are interested in things that are related to the interests that they have which are shaped in small part by rejection as uncool of what their parents were into and in much larger part by the media landscape and consumer commerce market that developed in the last twenty or so years.

Isn’t change in market interests a completely expected and natural occurrence over the course of thirty years? The idea that we should all keep buying the kitsch our parents did because our parents have them lying around and want to get rid of them is sort of absurd. I said it above, but the kind of market stagnation Read more
