At Cornell’s New Fine Arts Library, the Book Sets the Standard

The Mui Ho Fine Arts Library at Cornell University opened in late August. Its stacks hold a diverse collection spanning art, architecture, and photography. Courtesy © Lukas Schaller Unlike recent university libraries which are premised on the absence of physical books, Cornell University’s new art and architecture library is an old-school print palace. Here, printed matter sets the standard. “Everything is scaled to the book,” architect Wolfgang Tschapeller explained. “As a human, you are not the main character, you are a guest between the books.” The new fit-out, officially the Mui Ho Fine Arts Library, gestated for five years at Tschapeller’s eponymous Vienna firm before its soft opening in early August. Inside, the expressive 27,000-square-foot structure hints at the intensive work that lifted a much-modified 1911 steel-and-masonry neoclassical building into the 21st century. While the exterior is a spiffier version of its old self, the interior is dramatically reconfigured. Its most prominent feature are the shelves on the main floor, where over 100,000 volumes appear to float midair across staggered honeycomb steel mezzanines. To accommodate all those books (which number le...

NJ Gov. Murphy Signs 153 Bills Into Law, Including Major Vape Ban

NEW JERSEY – Gov. Phil Murphy has signed 153 bills into law, including one that makes New Jersey the first state in the nation to impose a permanent ban on flavored vape products. He also declined to sign 33 bills into law, otherwise known as “pocket vetoing” them. Other bills signed into law on Monday and Tuesday by the Murphy administration, which provided an updated list Tuesday afternoon, will create new safeguards for police officers, including the new “Move Over Law” law; improve hospital transparency; and work to reform the juvenile justice system (see bills below). The vaping legislation, S3265, prohibits the sale and distribution of flavored vape products, including menthol. The law, which Murphy signed Tuesday, comes as the state is dealing with a skyrocketing number of vaping illnesses, including one death. Read more: Startling Details, Cases Skyrocket In Deadly NJ Vaping Outbreak Flavored vape products appear to target teens, Murphy says, and a number of children and young adults have reportedly suffered from the negative impacts of e-cigarettes. The governor also vetoed legislation (S-4223/S-4224) that would have strengthened regulations of v...

EU 16 WTO members sign pact for interim appeal arrangement

By Barun Jha(Eds: Recasting Friday’s story)      Davos, Jan 25 (PTI) The European Union and 16 WTO members including China and Australia have signed a pact to develop a multi-party interim appeal arrangement at the global trade body.     The arrangement, signed on Friday on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting, will allow the participating WTO members to preserve a functioning and two-step dispute settlement system at the World Trade Organization (WTO).     This initiative was launched in mid-December 2019 by the EU and a number of other WTO members following the effective paralysis of the WTO Appellate Body due to the blockage of new appointments since 2017.     EU Commissioner for Trade Phil Hogan said: “This statement testifies to the high importance that the EU and the participating WTO members attach to retaining a two-step dispute settlement process in WTO trade matters. The multiparty appeal arbitration arrangement will guarantee that the participating WTO members continue to have access to a binding, impartial and high-quality dispute settlement system among them.”     “Let me underline again that this remains a contingen...

I Got the Revlon Hair Dryer Brush and It Cut My Morning Routine in Half

After a 5 a.m. sculpt class, there’s nothing I dread more than drying my freshly-showered hair. I have pretty thick hair, so I can easily spend 30-40 minutes blow drying it and another 20 minutes waiting for it to air dry completely before styling—all while hurrying to get dressed, making a quick breakfast, and leaving for work on time. Not to mention that holding the blow dryer above my head for 40 minutes is practically a full shoulder workout. Until a few months ago, my post-workout morning routine took about 90 minutes. Then I got the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer Volumizer Brush, and it cut my getting-ready time in half. I swear this thing has magical powers. It dries and straightens my thick, wavy hair into a salon-worthy blow-out in about 25 minutes.  The tool is an oval-shaped round brush with openings in between the bristles that allow hot air to dry your strands as they’re pulled through. All I have to do is section out my wet hair into three-inch sections and roll each one a few times as I would with a normal round brush, and it leaves my locks dry and silky after a few passes. The brush has three settings, so you can control the amount of heat you get. The ‘high’ settin...

32-Inch G-Sync Ultimate Monitors w/1152 Zone Mini-LED Inbound, & LG 2020 OLED G-Sync Compatibile Too

Following yesterday’s announcement of the first 360Hz G-Sync monitor, the ASUS ROG Swift 360, this morning NVIDIA is announcing some updates in the high-end HDR portion of the market as well. Kicking things off, NVIDIA is using CES 2020 to once again drum up interest in G-Sync Ultimate (HDR) monitors, this time by announcing a pair of new 32-inch 4K monitors with Mini-LED backlighting. For those keeping track, this is the second set of Mini-LED-based monitors that the company has announced; NVIDIA first unveiled 27-inch monitors back at Computex 2019 for Acer and ASUS, though those monitors have yet to ship. Besides being the first G-Sync Ultimate monitors available in a 32-inch panel size, the new 32-inch models’ claim to fame is an 1152 zone backlighting system, which is the largest number of zones announced for an LCD monitor to date. According to NVIDIA, the forthcoming Acer X32 and the ASUS PG32UQX will be able to offer a peak brightness of 1400 nits, with the finer-grained Mini-LED FALD backlighting providing better local contrast and reduced backlight blooming. Otherwise these new monitors are fairly similar to the current-generation 27-inch models, offering a 3840×2...

If you’re fed up with feeling backed up, adding a daily probiotic to your routine might

If you’re fed up with feeling backed up, adding a daily probiotic to your routine might be just what you need to feel more regular. While probiotics are known for promoting gut health, some are better than others at easing digestive troubles specifically. The best probiotics for constipation contain bacteria strains found to be particularly good at keeping things moving through your digestive tract. For constipation relief, certified dietitian and nutritionist Ilyse Schaprio, MS, RD, CDN, says to look specifically for these strains: Bifidobacterium infantis, Bifidobacterium lactis, Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus plantarum, and Saccharomyces boulardii. And WebMd reported that those same strains can help with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a condition that often involves a mix of constipation and diarrhea. What’s more, according to Harvard Medical School, all probiotics looked at in a study increased the number of weekly bowel movements and helped soften stool, but Bifidobacterium appeared to be the most effective strain. So, when shopping for a probiotic to make you feel more regular, make sure that it includes a Bifidobacterium strain at the very least, i...
