Cruising Van Nuys Boulevard In The Summer Of 1972 In Stunning Black And White Photos By Rick McCloskey
This culture was pretty much gone when I grew up in SoCal. These photos were taken a couple years before I was born, but I feel a deep connection to them every time I see my driveway.
Spirytus Rektyfikowany is in high demand in Japan where it’s being used as an alternative to rubbing alcohol. This is the stuff we were known for using in our serious cocktails at both Rumours and Bill’s Bar in Nara.
Green Gaijin, anyone?
Best viewed only once (I watched it sixteen times with diminishing interest).
Teaching online has been a side hustle for 10+ years and I’ve taught a few workshops along the way, so I get asked about the best platform a lot recently: Zoom, Microsoft Teams, or Google Meet?
So after testing and teaching classes this summer on all three, I can say that Google Meet is the best for a university teacher in Thailand.
This is based on performance, security, ease of use (for both teacher and student), and features. Price did not really factor into this decision, because my employer enabled free access to Meet and Teams. I will say that the 40-minute limit on free Zoom account meetings probably affects many.
Google Meet (basic but reliable) > Zoom (dumb 40 min. limit) > Microsoft Teams (uh… better suited for business?)
BONUS TIDBIT: Google Meet can now show many (max. 16) people on the grid, one of the last advantages Zoom (max. 49) had over it (Microsoft Teams is still at 4).
Damn, this is a perfect meme movement for Gen Z.
Photos like this are what’s fueling the movement:
Doubled nationwide and doubled in Hamilton city (not county), in comparison to 10 days ago. People from other countries cannot understand why many Americans won’t wear masks, but it’s simpler than you’d think – Freedom or Death!
It would be remiss not to mention that arsonists have tried to destroy at least 50 5G towers in several countries in the EU, UK, and US. It has not helped the spread of the coronavirus at all.
So here’s the number of infections in that county today (the video was taken a day or two ago in Over-the-Rhine, an urban historic district):
And now the county jail is probably at higher risk of infection:
Reading the comment feed on that recorded livestream will tell historians everything they need to know about the United States at this point in time.
Update: Well not quite everything, because there’s also that 5G/Coronavirus rumor spreading to the states from the UK, where they are setting 5G cell towers on fire.
Great idea, since people are basically losing their minds during this coronavirus lockdown. Go see the highlights here: Museum Asks People To Recreate Paintings With Stuff They Can Find at Home, Here Are The Results
