Article: Trump vs. the mediaBoston—Not many months ago I was among the millions of moviegoers transfixed and inspired by the work of a small team of journalists at The Boston Globe – the Spotlight Team – who in 2002 told the shocking story of pedophile priests whose vile acts were routinely protected by the Roman Catholic Church’s hierarchy. The team’s effort not only won journalism’s highest award, the Pulitzer Prize Gold Medal, but also ignited a global attack on such pedophilia. Theater audiences like mine cheered as the “Spotlight” film credits rolled. I had watched through teary eyes the film’s climactic scene – so familiar to newspaper movies – in which the monstrous presses churn out paper bundles for circulation trucks that fan out across the region delivering the edition containing the story. As a journalist for most of my adult life, my heart swelled with pride.
photo - New York City's GentrificationCurbed was founded a decade ago as a site that would chronicle real estate and neighborhood changes, two subjects that are inextricably intertwined. And boy, have we ever, tracking the topic with self-proclaimed obsessiveness and attention to minute detail. It's easy to capture the drastic evolution in areas like the Lower East Side, the East Village, the Meatpacking District, and Tribeca in photos; comparing historic images and modern-day shots truly does lay bare what's gone and what's replaced it. But as the term "gentrification" turns 50, we figured it was time to sit back and take stock on a more microscopic, anecdotal level. We asked neighborhood bloggers and long-time locals to share with us one moment in which they knew their home had irrevocably changed. A shop opens; a dive bar closes.
AstrophysicsAstrophysics People have gazed at the stars, given them names, and observed their changes for thousands of years. NASA joined the ancient pursuit of knowledge of our universe comparatively recently. Goals The science goals of Astrophysics are breathtaking: we seek to understand the universe and our place in it. We are starting to investigate the very moment of creation of the universe and are close to learning the full history of stars and galaxies. We are discovering how planetary systems form and how environments hospitable for life develop.Atlantic City PressIf some state legislators get their way, the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy could bring an end to one Jersey Shore tradition — the beach badge. State Sen. Michael Doherty, R-Hunterdon, Warren, and Senate President Stephen Sweeney, D-Salem, Gloucester, Cumberland, have introduced legislation requiring any town that accepts state or federal aid for rebuilding its beaches to provide beach and restroom access for free. “A beach fee is another word for tax,” Sweeney said Monday. “I just don’t agree with it. ... You’re taking federal money (and) tax dollars to build beaches.

Blog post: Post-Truth and Fake NewsEarlier in the year I was tasked with creating a resource guide on “post-truth” and fake news. It’s not something I was clamoring to do. To be honest: I was still in the post-election malaise–and my heart was just not into it. Rarely would I label any of my work tasks as “edicts,” (I like the flexibility and creativity of my job) but this time it was. As part of a broader campus-wide discussion, the library needed to play a part.Snapshots of Tribeca’s GentrificationA couple of weeks ago, Curbed made a request: We’re asking neighborhood experts to tell us, in 100-150 words, about a memory or moment or instance that personified gentrification. The more concrete the better: when a local diner made way for yet another Starbucks?
Pixnary - Visual Vocabulary for CAT"Coleridge was evidently one of those people who abase themselves excessively in the hope of never having to hear their faults expressed on the lips of others." "What would possess anyone to take such blessings and abase them with dollar signs?" "Where the people are Catholic and submissive to the law of God, as declared and applied by the vicar of Christ and supreme pastor of the church, democracy may be a good form of government; but combined with Protestantism or infidelity in the people, its inevitable tendency is to lower the standard of morality, to enfeeble intellect, to abase character, and to retard civilization, as even our short American experience amply proves."

Article: What does – and doesn’t – make news?Just because you announce something in a news release doesn’t actually make it news. Unfortunately, many organisations don’t get that and they are disappointed and frustrated when the release they have crafted does not generate publicity. Most often they blame the media when in fact the organisation itself hasn’t understood what actually makes news.Technopole et téléport Staten Island- fonction technologique (fragmentation spatiale NY)A Telehouse data center and surrounding areas in Staten Island, New York US data center provider Telehouse America has formed a strategic partnership with the security-systems integrator Seccuris to provide its cloud-security solution OneStone to Telehouse customers.
