Bee In The City

With Josh and Dennis

I know of two beehives in my neighborhood, which is good considering the buzz on bees is they are in danger of extinction.

El hombre con la mejor memoria del mundo visitó MIT

Trabajó veinte años en un fábrica de acero y a sus 49 años revolucionó su vida cuando comenzó a entrenar su memoria

¿Te imaginas tener la capacidad de recordar una gran cantidad de datos? Así lo ha logrado, Jim Karol, un hombre de Pensilvania, Arlington, EE.UU. Cuando era pequeño no mostró ningún signo de genialidad y la escuela no fue su mejor época. De hecho, tuvo que estudiar varios veranos para poder graduarse. Después, pasó 20 años trabajando en una fábrica de acero.

The Man with the 'Best Memory in the World' Visited MIT

Jim Karol worked at a steel mill for 20 years, but when he turned 49 his life changed when he started to train his memory

Jim Karol, the man with the "best memory in the world," visits MIT in Cambridge to talk about training the brain.

Could you imagine having an amazing capacity that stores lots of information in your brain? This is what Jim Karol, a man from Pensylvania, achieved. When he was young he didn't demonstrate any sign of this ability. Actually, he had a hard time at school, and to get his diploma he needed extra work. Later, he started working at a steel mill factory for 20 years.

Listening to Cambridge - Part 2: Central Square

Second in a series of soundwalks in different neighborhoods in our fair city

I chose Central Square as a setting for my second in this series of Cambridge Soundwalks. Compared to my first one in North Cambridge , this has a lot more "human" sounds.

A Crash Course in Bicycle Safety?

Cambridge City Council Meeting Hears Pros and Cons on Bike Lanes

Bike parking on Brattle Street

This past Monday, August 8th, I attended the Special City Council Meeting in the Attles room at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School. With nowhere left to sit down unless one considered the floor an option, (and some did) I listened to a stream of comments offered by Cambridge residents, and people who work in Cambridge who also ride bicycles to get to work, to shop, for exercise, and recreation in Cambridge.

Out of Darkness, Into Light

Cambridge Youth Minister Spreading Fire with "Stay Lit" Album, Message of Positivity

Karlos Cobham Stays Lit for Jesus

Poverty. Prejudice. Climate change. The threat of nuclear war. “There’s a lot of darkness going on in the world,” said 28-year-old Karlos Cobham.

But for the Barbados native turned Cambridge youth minister, there is an opportunity for hope.

“What if we, as one people, were to keep our lights on instead of complaining about all the darkness? What if we were to shine our lights and take our light into dark places and eradicate the darkness going on,” Cobham asked.

Spirit Awards 2017

Making Art, Creating Community

The Spirit Awards event celebrates the spirit of Maud Morgan, a former community resident and artist of exceptional vibrancy, who lived her life deeply in the arts, in her neighborhood and in the world (1903-1999). Once a year we gather for a festive evening to honor an outstanding individual who embodies her “spirit”.

Postcards to Maud...Please Forward

Big Works in Small Spaces at the Chandler Gallery

Where you’d typically see the big, bold letters of “Greetings From…” or an endearing “Wish You Were Here,” there are stunning oil still lifes, surreal portraits or a textural collage made entirely of green circles.
