Uh-Oh - Has Science Gotten Too Complex For Humans To Comprehend?

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 22:01:00 +0000

(image) "The twin challenges of too much quantity and too little quality are rooted in the finite neurological capacity of the human mind.

Bang On A Can - Still Banging Away 30 Years Later

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 21:01:17 +0000

(image) Unplugged, soft-spoken and unchaotic — parents now, rather than children — is a good summary of the Bang on a Can founders these days, even as their energy is undimmed. Their work, once punkishly outsiderish, is now showered with mainstream accolades.22bangonacan4-master768

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 20:01:46 +0000

(image) The clustering of talent and economic assets in cities is benefiting “the already privileged, leaving 66 percent of the population behind,” Florida says. “Left unchecked, this clustering force generates a lopsided, extremely unequal kind of urbanism in which a relative handful of superstar cities, and a few elite neighborhoods within them, benefit while many other […]Table 2.2_Money-Left-Over-After-Housing_Colour_v03

Is Classical Music Still Relevant? Sorry - But That's The Wrong Question

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 19:31:35 +0000

(image) "The only possibility for orchestras and opera houses to find new repertoire, with the chance that they hit upon something of real value, is to preserve a practical framework: the one which defines the fundamentals of the art form. This means ignoring the postwar modernist ideologies of progress – because there is no progress in the arts […]Cesar_Franck_At_Organ

Mon, 24 Apr 2017 18:31:57 +0000

(image) The primary concern of contemporary criticism is not whether a given cultural object is good or bad, but how that object reflects the realities of the social world, and how it can potentially (re)shape that same world. For Weinmann, “this new turn of criticism, this emphasis on the politics behind art, may be better for […]texting-phone-620x412

(image) "If I understand [Richard] Florida, he’s arguing that today’s troubles are a consequence of the success of a few cities such as Seattle, and especially New York, Washington, D.C., and San Francisco. And they are also victims because of affordability. As Florida correctly puts it, these cities have 'wildly disproportionate shares' of advanced industries, startups […]24f2c00c-256d-11e7-b44f-3af5caa312c3-1242x658
