Video from DPM by LT11. Ben Spannuth sending two sick routes, “Cobra Strike” and “The Bleeding”. Great to see Will Anglin in this video to talk about his route! Also, great editing by Jon Glassberg and Louder Than Eleven (as always).
You’re now stocked on veggies and fruits but… how long will they last?
In addition to storing your fruits and veggies properly, it’s good to know approximately how long the fresh stuff will last. Plan your trip to the grocery or farmer’s market accordingly so that your foods are at the peak of freshness when you plan to prepare them, and you’re not throwing away food that’s gone bad before you get a chance to use it!
- Green beans
- Brussels sprouts
- Hard Squash
I should post this on the fridge as a constant reminder.
Red lights in all directions at this intersection allow people to cross diagonally from one corner to the other in the heart of Washington, D.C.’s Chinatown. This is called a Barnes Dance, as All Things Considered Host Melissa Block learned this week in an interview with Gideon Berger of the Urban Land Institute.
“It’s named after the pioneering traffic engineer, Henry Barnes,” says Berger.
Until last year, the city that had the most intersections of this kind in the United States was Denver, Colo., where Barnes once worked.
The conversation was part of the NPR Cities Project.
Traffic light timing may seem mundane but it affects us every day. And it’s tricky. Cities used to focus mostly on getting the times right for cars. But increasingly, they’re trying to take all modes of transportation into account.
“As they do that they’re making their jobs a little bit more complicated, but they’re also thinking about how people behave in the real world,” says Berger.

This incredible photo marks the end of Matador Torero Alvaro Munera’s career. He collapsed in remorse mid-fight when he realized he was having to prompt this otherwise gentle beast to fight. He went on to become an avid opponent of bullfights. Even grievously wounded by picadors, he did not attack this man.
Torrero Munera is quoted as saying of this moment: “And suddenly, I looked at the bull. He had this innocence that all animals have in their eyes, and he looked at me with this pleading. It was like a cry for justice, deep down inside of me. I describe it as being like a prayer - because if one confesses, it is hoped, that one is forgiven. I felt like the worst shit on earth.”
