What The Election Means For NCSE
Huffington Post - 4 months
Dear NCSE members and friends of science, I'm writing in a profound state of shock, as I'm sure you'll understand. You are no doubt in the same state. For the National Center for Science Education, of course, the election of someone who thinks climate change is a hoax and whose running mate once denounced evolution from the floor of the House of Representatives, is frightening and deeply depressing. It is more than possible that the sweeping Republican triumph at the national level may embolden local efforts to undermine the teaching of evolution and climate change. These are worrying signs for science education. We have a choice in how we respond. We could certainly get out there and gin up our base with outrage. We'd probably see a spike in donations. But I think that would be a profound mistake. Science offers an opportunity for building bridges. It's not hard to make the argument that a good science education might be one of the most important tools for bringing hope and oppor ...

How Do You Follow <i>Downton Abbey</i>? You Probably Don't
Huffington Post - about 1 year
With the final Downton Abbey countdown under way, it's time to extend a little sympathy to PBS for facing this season's TV mission impossible: replacing the most popular show in network history. Actually, no one at PBS harbors any delusions about finding another single show that will captivate audiences on the same scale as the tale of the Crawley clan. As if to underscore that point, PBS is maximizing its remaining Downton time. It's rerunning Season 5 on Sunday nights through December, with Season 6 launching in the colonies on Jan. 3. It doesn't take the Dowager Countess's insight to predict that ratings should be most satisfactory. The question is what happens after March 6, when Downton sails into history, and toward that end, PBS for some time has been rolling out a new batch of shows. It has expressed optimism, doubtless tinged with hope, that one or several of those shows will keep some Downton viewers returning to PBS more often than they did in the past. Mr. ...

Time’s Up for ‘Upstairs Downstairs’
BBC Blogs- America - almost 5 years
Keeley Hawes and Ed Stoppard in 'Upstairs, Downstairs' Fans of the revived Upstairs Downstairs will no longer be able to view the goings-on either upstairs or downstairs at 165 Eaton Place. The BBC has announced that the period drama, which aired the final episode of its second season in the UK last month, has been cancelled. Like the original Upstairs, Downstairs (1970-74), the show followed the lives of the occupants of a London townhouse. The new series was set on the eve of World War II and focused on an aristocratic couple (Ed Stoppard and Keeley Hawes) who lived upstairs and their servants (Jean Marsh, Anne Reid and others) working below. In the U.S., Season One of the revived Upstairs Downstairs ran on PBS’ Masterpiece last year; Season Two is expected to air in 2013. The original Upstairs, Downstairs also appeared on PBS nearly four decades ago. PBS’ Masterpiece is also home to Downton Abbey, the Emmy-winning period drama that, like Upstairs Downstairs, focuses on b ...

ARTINFO: "Frank Gehry Made a Kettle That Didn't Work": Architect Michael Graves on the Pitfalls of Product Design
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Curvilinear tables by Zaha Hadid. A violent (and humbly-named) chandelier by Daniel Libeskind. A modernist lamp by Richard Neutra. Architects frequently transfer the language of their buildings and their skills at the drafting table into the world of industrial design, but one of the most prolific may be American Postmodernist Michael Graves, a member of the New York Five whose hundreds of tea kettles, dog houses, spatulas, and the like have graced the high-end shelves of Alessi, along with the more accessible ones at Target. In light of the 2012 Driehaus Prize winner's current, very cleverly titled retrospective of his product designs (currently on view at Anne Reid '72 Art Gallery), and the end of his 13-year-long collaboration with the big box department store, Graves talked to ARTINFO about the differences between designing buildings and tea kettles, his Etruscan influences, and why the New York skyline doesn't do anything for him.
