Population growth slowed in most cities of more than a million people, except San Antonio and Philadelphia.

    Quest for Affordable Housing Drives People Away From the Coasts
    The high cost of housing seemed to sap Americans' taste for coastal cities last year as cities in Texas and Arizona gained more population than New York City or Los Angeles for the first time in a decade, according to census population estimates released today.

Read Dracula in real time.* May 24. Everybody wants Lucy. On this date in Dracula, Lucy Westenra writes to her friend Mina Murray about the three men who have proposed marriage to her . . . all on the same day! Dr John Seward, “the lunatic-asylum man, with the strong jaw and the good forehead,” was first. Lucy turned him down. Next was Mr. Quincey P. Morris, “the American from Texas,” whose proposal included comparing Lucy to a horse in harness with him. She turned that one down. Lastly, Arthur Holmwood, the polished, soon-to-be Lord, came in and swept Lucy off her feet. Obviously, she said yes to Arthur, but Lucy did wonder to her friend, “Why can’t they let a girl marry three men?” *The novel, Dracula, is comprised of journal entries and letters, all dated, so throughout the year, we’ll be posting a day-by-day account of the plot of Dracula. Follow along with your own reading and feel free to leave comments below (no spoilers for those who may be reading for the first time).

92nd ANNUAL solo exhibitions: Julie Anne Greenberg: Considerable Uncertainty Remains Jacob Koestler: Copy of a Copy Daniel W. Coburn: Becoming a Specter are on view through August 4, 2018. I am inspired by ideas of the infinite in relation to sublime subjects like hurricanes and other weather patterns. The patterns allow me to closely examine a subject that is so much larger and powerful than myself. Essentially, the act of printing the same patterns over and over again ties in to my exploration of natural phenomena. As humans, we can try to predict and understand these storms, however we will always fall short due to our own limitations….As I print, cut, and stare, I find myself sitting in the middle of each disturbance, rearranging pieces that no longer fit together. - Julie Anne Greenberg Image: Julie Anne Greenberg, System XV Nicole: “Defied Forecasts by Steadily Organizing”, 2018, Screenprint with paint and pigment on cut and reassembled paper on built panel http://printcenter.org/100/92nd-solo-shows/

    The slim volume bound in animal skin represented the best the field of medicine had to offer 500 years ago: a compilation of remedies made from such ingredients as rabbit bones, ox tongue, and chicory. Yet at some point before the manuscript reached its current resting place, a library shelf at the University of Pennsylvania, an unknown liquid was spilled on its carefully lettered pages.
