Send: A New Office 365 Email App

Use-case refinement to render search easier.  Use send for “bursty” fleeting communications and Outlook/Exchange for more substantive/deliberate email so that when searching for the important stuff, results aren’t cluttered by the minor stuff.

Soothing. It's #painting  not a photograph.
 
At the age of 71, the artist Okuda Gensō 奥田元宋 (born July 6, 1912) challenged himself to paint a large-scale work each year until he turned 80. Oirase Ravine (Autumn) https://goo.gl/Ahl3KX is over 500cm (18 feet!) wide and took three months to paint. The rich red palette is so distinctive that it's called “Gensō red”.

The artist lived to the age of 90 and is celebrated as one of the masters of Nihonga, or Japanese-style painting. His work is featured prominently in the collection of the Yamatane Museum, Tokyo - Japan's first museum dedicated to this national art form.  +Japanese Art

When my son, Alasdair, was two, he embraced an unlikely children’s entertainer: Laurie Anderson. It began when he found her 1982 debut album, Big Science, in my vinyl collection and asked about it. After watching the “O Superman (For Massenet)” music video on YouTube, he moved on to her “Sharkey’s Day” video and then the

Early Draft. But what's nice about this tool is citations.
The Outline tab on the right nav is useful for thinking about structure.
Debate map visualization of: Irreconcilable Tension? or Nirvana (provided that the camps can collaborate from a position of respect and valuing complementary skillsets)?

The Moralist is becoming quite the fan of Medium.  I hadn’t quite expected to see that unlikely thumbnail assessment of an applicant — at least to the “usual suspects” of top-tier programs that the ambitious young favor.  Still there it is, ground-breaking in and of itself, even if it could have explored the issues with …

Darren Kowitt's +1's are the things they like, agree with, or want to recommend.
The staff is great, as is the location. Somehow, it feels a little dark inside, even though the windows are large in frontage and height -- the placement of restrooms prevents all the light from penetrating the depth of the space. And most unforgivable: not enough charging sockets for the clientele who (guilty!) often spend long stretches there. Atmospherically, I prefer the Charles St location at 1209, despite the bigger bustle & crowds. But this is the one closest to my home.

In January and February, one has Western Sicily in general -- and Erice in particular -- all to oneself. Hauntingly so, almost to the point of disconcerting (I've fallen on this pavement and I can't get up). This hotel was a challenge to find - but then again: all of Erice is conceptually difficult to navigate upon arrival. And the fact that the compact car (with its narrow turning radius) still had to be guided around preposterously tight medieval streets -- well that was all part of the charm, right? hotel was welcoming and cozy -- as cozy as you can get when, because of the escarpment-top location, the howling wind rattles the modern windows in their frames ever so slightly. chilly: but bundle up and fun. lovely host & proprietor. it's a sleepy little town and yet it's inescapably a 'my friends won't be able to comprehend this unless they visit' kind of place. if my numerical ratings seem low it's simply because it's a rustic hotel/inn, not like city center grand traditions in Venice, Rome, Milan and Florence.

Store has closed - lost their lease; had --contrary to most stores with such signs -- a legit going out of business sale. Closed just before Memorial day 2012. de trop is the phrase that comes to mind, though now that the windows are empty, it's somehow vaguely sad.... it's the Priscilla Queen of the Desert Store.

Went here the day after the review in the New York Times. Lo & behold, it was busy. Crazy busy. The review raved about the chicken parm; sheepishly I confessed to being Pavlovian in my slavish adulation & imitation of all things NYT. The waitress replied "don't worry - yesterday we sold out; you're in good company" great, vivid, fresh. decent wines, too. on a chill day, it was a great place to recharge over comfort food done well -- really, really well. and the brined veggies were an extra treat.
