How I Reassured Myself I Would Be Okay After My Cancer Diagnosis

In late 2006, I underwent a clean, routine mammogram. Six weeks later, I found a small lump in my left breast. Two weeks and two surgeries after that, on January 23, 2007, I was diagnosed with Stage 2-3 breast cancer. It was the lobular type that doesn’t show up on mammograms…

Cities don’t always respond effectively to the needs of their communities. Frequently, those needs get encumbered by red tape. As a result, technology is evolving to create more fluid communication between the people and the polity, and IBM is betting that it won’t be long before you’ll notice it. By 2017, there’s expected to be more than three billion smart phones in the world, opening up cities to people like never before. Check out the video here.

Graphic Design-Now In Production, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston

The Contemporary Arts Museum Houston is pleased to present Graphic Design-Now in Production, a major international exhibition that explores some of the most vibrant graphic design work produced since 2000, including posters, books, magazines, identity and branding, information graphics, typography and typefaces, and film and television title graphics. The exhibition is organized around eight themes: Posters, Magazines, Books, Information Design, Branding, Typography, Storefront, and Film and Television Titles. Graphic Design-Now in Production is co-organized by the Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, and the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, New York.


Graphic Design explores the worlds of design-driven magazines, newspapers, books, and posters; the expansion of branding programs for corporations, institutions, and subcultures; the entrepreneurial spirit of designer-produced goods; the renaissance in digital typeface design; the storytelling potential of film and television titling sequences; and the transformation of raw data into compelling information narratives.
On view until September 29, 2013. More info here: http://camh.org/exhibitions/graphic-design—now-production#.UgG8AKXfb0d

Though you can’t deny the convenience of online shopping, there’s something nice about shopping at brick-and-mortar shops. There’s the face-to-face access to customer service, the tactile experience of merchandise, not to mention, the occasion to get out of your home and encounter other consumers like you. What we really need is the best of both worlds, and IBM researchers are already working on it. IBM Research Lead for Retail predicts that in the next five years, buying local will beat online. Check out the video here.

It’s seductive. Jagged, vertiginous peaks nestle arced beaches that wash up at the feet of bronzed deities. Electric percussion vibrates the balmy night air, rippling in your cachaça, lime, and sugar cocktail. I couldn’t help but be mesmerized when I first visited Rio de Janeiro. No city landscape is so dramatic, no culture so effervescent…
