Postmodernism: the 10 key moments in the birth of a movement.
1972: The demolition of the Pruitt Igoe housing scheme The modern world died at 3.32pm in St Louis, Missouri, on 15 July 1972.
The dynamiting of the notorious Pruitt Igoe housing scheme was a noise that resonated around the world, at least according to architecture critic Charles Jencks in his 1977 book The Language of Post-Modern Architecture. You probably didn't hear it expire because you were crazed on cola-flavoured moon-dust sweets listening to Bowie's new Ziggy Stardust LP. Or weren't actually born.
After Pruitt Igoe fell, a new architecture arose. And that was just architecture. 1973: The birth of late capitalism The world plunged into recession from 1973 to 1974, thanks to oil prices quadrupling in the aftermath of the Arab-Israeli war. Welcome to post-Fordism or, if you prefer, the era of late capitalism. Neon light – Postmodernism: Style and Subversion 1970-1990 at the Victoria and Albert museum – video.

Katelyn Sabochik November 24, 2010 03:17 PM EDT Earlier today President Obama, with the help of daughters Sasha and Malia, carried out “one of the most important duties” he has as President of the United States – the pardoning of the National Thanksgiving Turkey.
This year, the National Thanksgiving Turkey Apple, and his understudy Cider, came to the White House from Foster Farms Wellsford Ranch near Modesto, California. Both turkeys participated in a rigorous competition back home at the farm in order to win the ultimate prize of a Presidential pardon and an all-expenses-paid trip to the White House. Apple and Cider will live out their days at Mount Vernon, home of our nation’s first President George Washington. Video - Breaking News Videos from CNN.com. RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Oliver Sacks - Neurologist - My love of Kew Gardens. Botanical gardens.
One of the…the other great place for me in my youth, beside the South Kensington museums and the public library, was Kew, the great botanical garden at Kew. Both my mother and a sister of hers – a favourite aunt of mine, Lenny – were keen on botany and on gardening and on ferns and fern-like things in particular. But I would often go with my aunt to Kew. We would take a... a train from Brondesbury to Kew Gardens. This is one of the oldest lines, I think, in... in England, or lines of its sort. Freeman Dyson - Physicist - Stratospheric cooling vs global warming. I think the... the public is obsessed with the phrase 'global warming', which is not the problem.
I mean global warming I think is a very misleading phrase, because there are other things which are much more important and easier to measure; for example, stratosphere cooling, and stratosphere cooling is much larger than global warming, because global warming is supposed to be a rise in the average ground temperature. The average ground temperature over the earth is impossible to measure since most of the earth is ocean and we don't have instruments. So this average ground temperature is a fiction.
I mean, nobody knows what it is, there's no way you can measure it and it's not particularly important anyway. I mean, what's important is how much rain is going to fall next year, how many hurricanes there are going to be, and how much ozone there's going to be. Design For a Better World!
