Nobel Prize winners Barbara McClintock (1983) and Jacques Monod (1965) at the 1947 Cold Spring Harbor Symposium.
I’d really love to know what kinds of conversations occur between minds as brilliant as these two.
Working on some new desserts - coconut pandesal bread pudding with ube de leche. Sarap. #newmenu #filipinofood
me (if i ever make it up to toronto): “i’ll do the prix fixe but can i change the dessert to the bread pudding? oh great thank you. oh actually i’ll just do the bread pudding for the other four courses as well. THANK YOU. oh and water’s fine, thanks.”
(the rest of the menu looks amazing too)

Yuppie Urbanism v. Egalitarian Urbanism -
But whether that fact dooms egalitarian urbanism depends in large part, it seems to me, on how successful yuppie urbanism is. If, on the one hand, the new urban ideology is applied in a limited, targeted way – if public transit investment goes mainly to pretty-looking but functionally useless streetcars in gentrifying downtown districts, rather than improving regional bus networks (and maybe trains in some metro areas); if politicians’ commitment to urban design is limited to sexy mixed-use development only in those same central areas they want to gentrify, rather than a complete overhaul of zoning and design standards across the region; if a few center-city bike lanes aren’t accompanied by a broader change in road construction guidelines to make walking and accessing public transit viable and safe; then early 21st century urbanism will have the same anti-egalitarian legacy as mid-20th century urbanism.
