The studio of the late Alexander Calder. You can see one of his sculptures in red on the lawn. Calder and his wife Louisa bought the old farmhouse for $3,500 in 1933, in Roxbury, Connecticut which was becoming a mecca for the avant-garde. It is still owned by Calder’s estate. The Calders’ was a place where European e´migre´s, intellectuals, and bohemians discussed the political situation in Europe, practiced their French, and got very drunk. One day, I was visiting a farmer just up the road from Calder’s house and I noticed something hanging above the kitchen table and it was a wonderful Calder mobile. The farmer told me that Sandy, as he called Calder, used to come there and play poker with him. It must have been a very fun time! Alexander Calder died in New York City on November 11, 1976, and is buried in Roxbury.
A report from AdAge claims that Google News will soon be going through some more changes. According to the report, Google News is getting a “new design” and will “incorporate elements of the [Google Play] Newsstand app and YouTube.”
Mobile traffic is past its tipping point with roughly 52 percent of web traffic currently deriving from smartphones versus desktops – and counting. People are accessing sites and services with the expectation they will not only have the same functionality they would on desktops, but, more so today, that the sites will also use the functionality native to their devices without needing to download an app.
