Everyone is in a hurry. We swallow our food whole and consider the stop sign a suggestion. We don’t have time to say goodbye, we’re late, we’re late, we’re late. Our quality time goes to the computer, where we work till our eyes bleed pixels. The sun is that thing that makes us draw the blinds to keep the glare off the screen.  And that is why I’m so worked up: we must take time to ... [full story]

Listen: Kurt Vonnegut has come unstuck in time. The American novelist, short-story writer, essayist and would-be curmudgeon died recently at 84 - the age at which he dispatched his fictional alter ego, Kilgore Trout - several weeks after suffering head trauma from a fall.   Kurt Vonnegut Fans will recognize the first line, above, as a variation on a line from "Slaughterhouse-Five," Vonnegut's masterpiece.

If a bass could build its ideal habitat, the specs would be something like this: shallow water, in or near heavy cover with quick access to deep water nearby. While the nearby deep-water access is good news for anglers (you need some place to float your boat), pulling bass out of water in or near heavy cover can pose some access problems.   Larry Nixon is a former Bassmaster Classic champion with more than $2 million in ...

En­gi­neers are de­sign­ing a new breed of plan­e­tary ex­plor­ers: ti­ny, shape-shift­ing de­vices that ride the wind like dust par­t­i­cles and al­so to com­mu­ni­cate, fly in for­ma­tion and take sci­en­tif­ic mea­sure­ments.The specks might even be the first ex­plor­ers from Earth to vis­it plan­ets out­side our so­lar sys­tem, the de­sign­ers claim. A “smart” dust par­t­i­cle would con­sist of a com­put­er chip about a millimeter wide en­cased in a pol­y­mer ma­te­ri­al that wrin­kles or smooth’s out when elec­tri­cal­ly ... [full story]

NEW RELEASES   'HOT FUZZ' - Simon Pegg plays Sgt. Nicholas Angel in the comedy cop movie 'Hot Fuzz.' CNS Photo courtesy of Matt Nettheim. HOT FUZZ - Cuteness needs to stay cute. Turning blatant, it crams in cutes like "Hot Fuzz." Of course, the title of this British comedy indicates that we will not get another "Kind Hearts and Coronets." And the Brits do have a tradition of broad comedy, as anyone can attest who knows ... [full story]

Q: There's a small space off the downstairs hall in our old Victorian that we'd like to turn into a half-bath - the house was built circa 1899, with only one bath upstairs. The trouble is this little room is taller (at nearly 12 feet) than it is wide (just under 8 feet). What should we do so it doesn't feel like you're "in the bottom of a well?" A: Two quick tips: 1.

THE CHEF With broiled salted fish, Japanese pickles and rice for dinner one night, and homemade ravioli and monicotti the next, Jeffrey Stout learned the meaning of eclectic cuisine at the family table.
