He says nothing. Betrays nothing. On and on and on, not a syllable. Most impressively, it's not that actorly kind of silence and stillness—the one that invites the viewer, with each telegraphed wrinkle of the forehead and masterful quiver of the eyebrow, to offer up congratulations on how marvelously the actor is refusing to do things. He just passively compels us to hang on his every unsaid word. Breaking Bad: GQ Men of the Year 2011: Badasses: Men of the Year. Does any show say more about the jittery times we live in than AMC's Breaking Bad?

Creator Vince Gilligan's New Mexico-set TV noir debuted mere months before the Great Recession hit, and its ultra-savvy parable of the decline of American morals just keeps on getting more resonant. If our Depression-era forebears had The Grapes of Wrath to identify with, we've got the indelibly named Walt White—once an upstanding high-school chemistry teacher, now cooking meth for big bucks to provide for his family before cancer does him in. With just one season left to go, Breaking Bad has shifted from being all about Bryan Cranston's triple-Emmy'd (so far) lead performance to the best ensemble show on TV. Gilligan gives his actors full props for inspiring story developments he hadn't planned on. "Gustavo was not supposed to be a continuing character," he says.

En la cúspide del periodismo. Jill Abramson, la primera mujer directora de The New York Times, iba hacia un gimnasio en el centro de Manhattan, una mañana de mayo de 2007, cuando un camión frigorífico la atropelló.

Fractura de pelvis y pierna, lesiones internas, transfusiones de sangre, placas de metal, tres semanas en el hospital, meses en una silla de ruedas, luego muletas, luego un bastón. Un año después estaba escalando una montaña en el parque nacional de Yellowstone. Se resbaló, cayó por la ladera, se rompió la muñeca y se dislocó el hombro. Tuvieron que llevarla en helicóptero al hospital, donde los cirujanos le insertaron una placa de metal más. Jane Mayer, amiga íntima de Abramson y corresponsal de The New Yorker en Washington, insistía en una entrevista en que sigue siendo difícil encontrar a una mujer que ocupe un cargo importante en cualquier empresa o institución a la que no se califique de "dama de hierro".

El periodismo es para ella como las órdenes sagradas para un sacerdote Jill Abramson. Steve Jobs’s Real Genius. Not long after Steve Jobs got married, in 1991, he moved with his wife to a nineteen-thirties, Cotswolds-style house in old Palo Alto.

Steve Jobs’s Real Genius

Jobs always found it difficult to furnish the places where he lived. His previous house had only a mattress, a table, and chairs. He needed things to be perfect, and it took time to figure out what perfect was. This time, he had a wife and family in tow, but it made little difference. “We spoke about furniture in theory for eight years,” his wife, Laurene Powell, tells Walter Isaacson, in “Steve Jobs,” Isaacson’s enthralling new biography of the Apple founder.

It was the choice of a washing machine, however, that proved most vexing. Steve Jobs, Isaacson’s biography makes clear, was a complicated and exhausting man. Isaacson begins with Jobs’s humble origins in Silicon Valley, the early triumph at Apple, and the humiliating ouster from the firm he created. Jobs ripped it off and mumbled that he hated the design and refused to wear it. Quien es esta chica. Recuerda a una de las modelos de las obras prerrafaelistas.
