Movember. After a string of more or less ancient art historical mustaches from our month-long series in honor of male cancer awareness campaign Movember, we decided to start the week off contemporary with this mixed-media sculpture by Cairo artist Huda Lutfi, who melds elements of photography, sculpture, collage and found object installation in her conceptual practice.

20 Common Grammar Mistakes That (Almost) Everyone Makes

If there’s one thing I am grateful for — and it sure isn’t the pay — it’s that my work has allowed endless time to hone my craft to Louis Skolnick levels of grammar geekery. As someone who slings red ink for a living, let me tell you: grammar is an ultra-micro component in the larger picture; it lies somewhere in the final steps of the editing trail; and as such it’s an overrated quasi-irrelevancy in the creative process, perpetuated into importance primarily by bitter nerds who accumulate tweed jackets and crippling inferiority complexes.

Why French Parents Are Superior by Pamela Druckerman

We picked a coastal town that's a few hours by train from Paris, where we were living (I'm American, he's British), and booked a hotel room with a crib. Bean, as we call her, was our only child at this point, so forgive us for thinking: How hard could it be? We ate breakfast at the hotel, but we had to eat lunch and dinner at the little seafood restaurants around the old port. We quickly discovered that having two restaurant meals a day with a toddler deserved to be its own circle of hell. Bean would take a brief interest in the food, but within a few minutes she was spilling salt shakers and tearing apart sugar packets. Our strategy was to finish the meal quickly. After a few more harrowing restaurant visits, I started noticing that the French families around us didn't look like they were sharing our mealtime agony.
