Bride and Groom, Side by Side in a Preschool Photo. Alexandra Levy Olsman and Zachary Isaac Frankel lived across Rittenhouse Square from each other at a young age and went to the same Montessori preschool in Philadelphia.
But, when a mutual friend introduced them in October 2016, they had no memory of ever meeting. Mr. Frankel said the mutual friend, Lauren Jacobs, had reached out to him to say, “I have this girl for you.” That woman was Ms. Is Vermeer still the ‘Sphinx of Delft’? Somehow Vermeer’s paintings manage to transcend time and place.
They may have been created several hundred years ago, but they are almost shockingly present. Oil paint on canvas is a deeply familiar medium to us today, but Vermeer’s technique continues to baffle us. A modest proposal: Make today a new day - Garrison Keillor. May 20, 2020 Wednesday 7:30 p.m.

When I heard that the statue of Stonewall Jackson had been pulled down in Richmond, I wondered why it was in Richmond when Stonewall was from North Carolina and made his career in Nashville, then I remembered that in addition to the country singer, there had been a Confederate general.
In fact, the singer had been named for the general, which was no problem in country music in the Fifties. I used to sing a song of his, “Don’t be angry with me, darling, if I fail to understand all your little whims and wishes all the time. Not enough people are aggrieved over Thomas (“Stonewall”) Jackson’s statue falling to reelect the president, which he will find out in due course, and my only question is: whom can we replace Jackson with, and Beauregard, Davis, Nathan Bedford Forrest, and the other heroes of the Lost Cause? The Death Of Expertise. I am (or at least think I am) an expert.
Not on everything, but in a particular area of human knowledge, specifically social science and public policy. When I say something on those subjects, I expect that my opinion holds more weight than that of most other people. I never thought those were particularly controversial statements. As it turns out, they’re plenty controversial. Today, any assertion of expertise produces an explosion of anger from certain quarters of the American public, who immediately complain that such claims are nothing more than fallacious “appeals to authority,” sure signs of dreadful “elitism,” and an obvious effort to use credentials to stifle the dialogue required by a “real” democracy.

Tickets reserved from home months ago meant the next day in DC was, coincidentally, spent at the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Here, my daughter and I were two white people in a sea of black, a demographic reversal from the day before. I was acutely aware of being white while looking at images of human beings in chains, babies stolen from crying mothers who were sold on the auction block.

Decades-long studies of identical and fraternal twins — and in some cases, triplets — who had been separated at an early age and reared in what were often strikingly different environments have documented the important interaction of nature and nurture and help to explain the relative contributions of each to how a child develops.
“A strict dichotomy between genes and environment is no longer relevant; they work in concert,” said Nancy Segal, a psychologist at California State University, Fullerton, and herself a fraternal twin who has made a career of twin studies, starting with the famous Minnesota Twin Family Study. She is the author of “Born Together — Reared Apart: The Landmark Minnesota Twins Study,” published in 2012 by Harvard University Press. “It’s trait-specific,” Dr. American Jews Know How This Story Goes. Should We Speak to Little Boys as We Do Little Dogs? Life on the Margins – The Loon Project. For the past several years, I have begun to turn my attention to the effect of lake size on breeding success of common loons. Clearly loons on large lakes produce more and healthier chicks than those on small lakes.
We showed that on our paper from six years ago. This raises the question of why loons ever attempt to breed on small lakes. They are doomed to failure — or at least to greatly reduced likelihood of success. Standing around, watching people suffer. November 3, 2018 Saturday. 3 tips to have better conversations. Mashable.

Hedda Sharapan, one of the staff members at Fred Rogers’s production company, Family Communications, Inc., recalls Rogers once halted taping of a show when a cast member told the puppet Henrietta Pussycat not to cry; he interrupted shooting to make it clear that his show would never suggest to children that they not cry.
