LATimes - about 1 month
On any given day, cars roll slowly down the main shopping street of Playa Vista, just as they do in small towns everywhere. After all, when it came to building a town center on land around famed aviator Howard Hughes’s old airplane runway, it seemed right to let people drive through and perhaps...

Rules Don't Apply review – Warren Beatty's unbearable vanity project
Guardian (UK) - over 1 year
Beatty’s first film in 15 years – co-written, produced, directed by and starring himself as Howard Hughes – is a plodding, airless exercise in narcissism Ludwig Wittgenstein once said that we cannot experience death because death is not an event in life. But then Wittgenstein never had to sit through this unbearable new film from Warren Beatty, his first in 15 years, co-written, produced and directed by its star, Warren Beatty, who may well be affecting a kind of kinship with his subject, the crazy but allegedly lovable billionaire recluse Howard Hughes.

Scientists are turning dragonflies into tiny cyborg drones
Yahoo News - over 1 year
One company has decided the ideal tiny drone should take its cues from the natural world of insects — specifically the dragonfly.  When Draper, an independent biomedical solutions lab, set out to make its own mini-fliers, it cut out the middleman. It got some of the insects and outfitted them with cutting-edge navigation, synthetic biology and neurotechnology systems to create a swarm of cyborg dragonfly drones.      SEE ALSO: Pocket-sized Dobby selfie drone is cute, tiny and way frustrating The tiny hybrids are part of an internal R&D project at Draper called, appropriately, DragonflEye.  "DragonflEye is a totally new kind of micro-aerial vehicle that’s smaller, lighter and stealthier than anything else that’s manmade,” said the program's principal investigator Jesse J. Wheeler in an interview posted online by the company. “This system pushes the boundaries of energy harvesting, motion sensing, algorithms, miniaturization and optogenetics, all in a system small enough for an inse...

Carnegie Deli - Last of the Latkes
Huffington Post - over 1 year
There's Carnegie Hall. Carnegie Mellon. Dale Carnegie. Carnegie Hill. And then there's Carnegie Deli. From brisket bliss to cloud nine kasha, it's been a heavenly food haven for 79 years. Latkes the size of flying saucers. Plates toppling over with 4" piles of shaved beef and sauerkraut. And now the decades of deli decadence and delight are over. 3D: Disney, Dustin & Deli 1937. The year Warren Beatty, Dustin Hoffman and Jane Fonda were born; Amelia Earhart disappeared; Disney's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs premiered; Howard Hughes broke his own transcontinental flight record, and the Hobbit was published by J.R.R. Tolkien. Oh yes, and the same year Carnegie Deli opened on Seventh Avenue, just across the street from Carnegie Hall. Remember the old joke: "How do you get to Carnegie Hall?" "Practice." I would have answered: "First find the Carnegie Deli; then just go two blocks north to 57th Street!" Not Just Another Deli When Milton Parker and Leo Steiner to...

Warren Beatty's long-awaited Howard Hughes picture 'Rules Don't Apply' never takes off
LATimes - almost 2 years
"Rules Don't Apply," as its name implies, is a movie intent on going its own way. It's not without its charms, but there aren't enough of them and they don't readily cohere. Interesting rather than involving, it pretty much dares you to insist that the strictures of storytelling need apply to its...

5 Things To Retire From Your Closet When YOU Retire
Huffington Post - about 2 years
No, this isn’t going to be one of those lists that tells you what you are too old to wear. Our feeling is, if you like something, wear it. If anyone calls it not age appropriate, just tell them you are actually only 24 but haven’t aged all that well. But there are some things that should retire from your closet along with you. Feel free to add any other items you can think of in the comments below. 1. Bras that you ripped off the minute you got home from work. We’re not sure why you were wearing them all day anyway, but if you begin unhooking them on the car ride home, they are definitely candidates for the thrift store.  Underwire bras were invented by a misogynist. Actually they were invented by Howard Hughes for sweater girl-actress Jane Russell to wear in the movie, “The Outlaw.” Hughes’ previous experience ― and perhaps only qualification for the creation of the push-up bra ― was that he designed airplanes. Steel and breasts are the oil-and-water of fashion. Upon...

8 Oscar Movies Based On True Stories That Forgot MAJOR Details
Huffington Post - over 2 years
"Harry Potter" is probably more true-to-life than some of the riddikulus movies that are supposedly "based on a true story." And we solemnly swear that anyone who says different is up to no good. But every once in a while, even Hollywood exaggeration doesn't live up to what really happened. In honor of the 88th Academy Awards, here are eight true stories that were more intense than the Oscar-nominated films they inspired. 1. After getting attacked by the bear, the real Hugh Glass had maggots eat his dead, rotting flesh.  Leonardo DiCaprio had a tough time filming "The Revenant." (We get it, bro. It was cold.) No offense to Leo, but the real Hugh Glass had it a little tougher. In addition to getting mauled by a real bear, making a 200-mile journey after being left for dead and setting his own broken leg, Glass reportedly used maggots to eat his dead flesh to prevent
