"a grand yet intimate piece of musical theater" "a tour-de-force performance from Jamar Williams" "Several actors in PASSING STRANGE are part of the Wilma’s recently formed HotHouse, a troupe devoted to intense physical training and to new ideas about interpretation. This production brims with them." - WHYY #WilmaPassingStrange

    Review: 'Passing Strange,' and grandly
    Broad Street between Locust and Spruce streets Runs through Feb. 18 - Bold, boisterous, and bellicose, the Wilma Theater production of the musical "Passing Strange" seems much more real than it did on Broadway 10 years ago. And that's important: What's real or not is at the core of the engrossing musical.

This would be a good read for any business who are worried about the idea of protected bike lanes. This isn't just a one off. There is a lot of data out there showing that improved bicycle infrastructure (including bike parking & protected bike lanes) is beneficial to local business.

    Business Man Changes his Mind about Separate Bike Lanes! * Average Joe Cyclist
    Business people around the world have tended to oppose separate bike lanes. But here's a turnaround from a Vancouver businessman that many readers will find very encouraging! I have supported separate bike lanes for a long time. I have watched with amazement as businesses in Vancouver have fought tooth and nail against separate bike lanes in Vancouver.

If you’re curious about the history of science, you likely know Robert Boyle and his work. But Boyle wasn’t working alone: his published work refers to partners and collaborators. Or he’d publish their response to his ideas. But Robert’s most frequent and influential collaborator—his intellectual partner!—was his sister, Katherine, even though she never appears in his work by name. In this month's episode of Distillations podcast, learn more about Katherine Boyle: http://bit.ly/LadyRanelagh (Image: Chiara Ogan flickr: http://ow.ly/zkI630hPVuU)

Stick to Your Job Pictured here is a poster which encouraged employees to “stick to your job,” which encouraged workers not to drift from job to job because their dedicated work was vital to the war effort. This poster was produced by the United States Department of Labor and, like many other propaganda posters, was distributed to American factories in order to encourage workers to maximize efficiency for the war effort.
