Letters to Stone: SENIOR FICTION WINNER
She stands by the window; rectangular mahogany base, the understated shape of legs, fused at the centre, stretching up to a trim stone torso. It's a black metal plate fused to a marble base: "Stonewoman by John Eastlack - granite, 1984". I ...

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Review In-Depth: Looking Beyond The Flawed Curve
First up, the S6 Edge is a glass affair, with the front and back of the handset fashioned from glass, and sandwiched between them is a metal frame to give it the strength and durability of other similar-sized smartphones. Also speaking to years of ...

As Scotland’s first podcaster, I continue to be a prominent voice in the rise of podcasting and new media online, and picked up a British Academy (BAFTA) nomination for my annual coverage of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, alongside contributions... I’ve spent the last week with the handset to find out if the ‘edge’ is useful or useless. The Galaxy S6 Edge is the more distinctive of the two handsets launched earlier this week ( the other is the Galaxy S6 Edge , and I’ll get to that handset in time). I suspect Samsung has been pushing this handset to be reviewed first because it is arguably the more immediately exciting of the two handsets. The curved screen shows off Samsung’s technical skills, the software that runs on the ‘edge’ is a new way of using a handset, and it generally looks new and refreshing. At least that’s what Samsung will hope you take away from it. In practice the S6 Edge’s curved screen is the weakest part of the equation – it introduces ergonomic problems, it’s a bit annoying in strong sunlight, the TouchWiz Ui does not take it...
"Jury duty. I treat jury duty like I treat voting—I show up if I feel like it. And I have not felt like showing up for jury duty once in my life. " I understand this sentiment, and elect not to share it. At least I didn't until around 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Unlike certain nihilists around these parts , I relish each and every "I voted" sticker, and instead choose more obscure philosophical hills to die on, such as not registering for the Selective Service and trying hard to avoid workplace drug tests... Jury duty is a chance to bond with fellow citizens you might not otherwise meet, peek under the hood of our flawed judicial system, and do our small part to advance the noble democratic ideal of participatory justice. In fact, within the space of nine of the longest hours in living memory, I went from bushy-tailed civic enthusiast to eyes-glazed quasi-anarchist, ready to write "Uber, except for jury duty" over and over again on Twitter, like some kind of... Across the street from Cadman Plaza begins the fashionable and high-priced Brooklyn Heights neighborhood, with its Montague Street of " Tangled Up in Blue " (and Jackie Robinson ) fame. Even the Fulton Street Mall , long considered to be a bit frazzled around the edges, is smartening up. The exception to this rule is this thick, gray rectangular scar dominated by.
In the scorched bowels of the California desert this past weekend, a conclave of the worst humans in America gathered to celebrate Coachella. Given such esteemed company at a venue so hospitable to vile behavior, it says a lot that Justin Bieber, of all people, was the one whose actions were just too much that he was reportedly placed in a chokehold and kicked out of the festival this... Then again, when you think about it: Justin Bieber and “oasis for douchebags. Leave it to the Grand Poobah of Petulance to be a human so horrible that he’s kicked out of a festival known for its horribleness. This came mere weeks after he earnestly gazed into a Comedy Central-owned camera and, after hours of being called a drunken lesbian, told the audience of his Roast that he was going to turn his behavior around , stop disappointing his fans, and... Given the gossip rag pile-on reveling in yet another Bieber misdeed, it’s apparent that Jesus did not take the wheel—or at the very least took a wrong turn on the road to redemption. The grace of god, the public shaming by Martha Stewart, and a hotbed of comparatively ridiculous behavior at the worst place on earth—Indio during Coachella—were not enough for Bieber to come off as a good guy, as he had promised, or hoped. No, he was manhandled away from those ambitions in a chokehold—a chokehold.
