In 1879, Claude Monet moved with his family to the village of Vétheuil on the north bank of the River Seine. For the next three years the town became the artist’s central landscape motif. His style during this period evolved from the blunt, broad strokes of the 1870s to delicate, rhythmic brushwork that reads like a gauze of spun sugar. The poplars in the background appear as twirling configurations of blue and green, while the clouds are painted in a broad and wet manner that suggests the flat quality of the sky at midday.

MAUREEN DOWD:

"It is jarring to watch officials like Governor Cuomo and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who have worked their way up through the system, gaining valuable wisdom, have to delicately deal with Donald Trump, the barbarian who crashed through the gates and who is ignorant about — and disdains — the bureaucracy he leads."

In this nightmarish moment, we’re feeling warm and fuzzy about the cold and calculating Andrew Cuomo.

A great idea from author Yiyun Li...and the book was already on my nightstand, just under "Anna Karenina," which I recently finished. Tolstoy is utterly amazing.

Anyone else up for this?

Read and discuss War and Peace with Yiyun Li and A Public Space. #TolstoyTogether.

THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF A GLOBAL PANDEMIC

©2020 Farok J. Contractor, Rutgers Business School Around the world, governments are reacting to the spread of the coronavirus by recommending, or forcing, the closure of schools, restaurants, and travel. By having the population remain at home, the much-reduced human-to-human contact will slow down the spread of the virus. The underlying idea as seen in the figure below is that a nation has only so many hospital beds, doctors, and medical facilities, and can – at one time – handle only so many cases.

Freeman J. Dyson (1923–2020), Scientist and Writer, Who Dreamt Among the Stars, Dies at 96

In Memoriam: Freeman Dyson

During my former career as a science editor and project manager, I had the opportunity to work with Professor Dyson, who was as gentle in demeanor as he was fierce in intellect. In a strange twist of fate, I am currently working on an editorial project whose author had very recent correspondence with the professor.

"Star Trek" aficionados may know the term "Dyson sphere," which was named for one of his theories.

Rest in peace, Professor Dyson.

Freeman J. Dyson, theoretical physicist and writer, who embraced the stunning diversity of the universe with unique spirit, died on February 28, 2020 in Princeton, NJ at the age of 96.

Farok J. Contractor, Rutgers Business School A Podcast from the Yale Podcast Network Recorded by Hira Jafri, Director of Global Programs, the MacMillan Center, Yale University The pushback against globalization—manifested in the Brexit vote, support for nationalist leaders like Trump, and protectionist tariffs—stems from (somewhat overblown) anxieties about cultural identity, stagnating incomes among the lower one-third of employees, fears about migrants and terrorists, and a general feeling of “loss of control” over one’s own life.

Contractor, Rutgers Business School At 5 o’clock in the morning on August 5, 2019, unable to sleep, Trump tweeted about China—not for the first time accusing it of being a “currency manipulator,”[1] and describing this as a “major violation.” (See Figure 1 below.) Treasury Secretary Mnuchin followed with an official announcement later that day.[2] [ 2,659 more words ]
