Peter Cresswell at Not PC - 1 day ago
[image: SChindler-Kallis] Austrian architect Rudolph Schindler worked briefly with Frank Lloyd Wright in Los Angeles before breaking out on his own. Immediately after the war, in 1946, in a postwar California still with many shortages, he built this inexpensive home for artist Mischa Kallis (1903-1987) – a one bedroom *House for an Artist* with studio and living on one level, with guest area below and garage and entry above. [image: SChindler-Kallis03] The architect’s ‘Schindler Frame’ frees up the walls above head height for light and sun through clerestories, and to flexibly... more »

If You Snort A Couple Of Adderalls Does It Show Up In A Drug Test?

DownWithTyranny at DownWithTyranny! - 1 day ago
Much has been made of Trump's snorting and sniffling at the debates. So Saturday, Mr. Projection Man suggested that Hillary was hopped up on drugs and that they should both agree to a drug test. Great idea-- and I suggested it an hour into the first debate when he was so obviously out of his mind on something he tooted before he went out on stage. Many have said cocaine, though I subsequently found out through his former doctor's office that it was Adderall. Since Trump was in New Hampshire Saturday morning, ostensibly to address the state's serious opioid problem, what better ti... more »

Prices aren't mere numbers--they are [a] form of communication that goes beyond language and math. Without them, we are blind and deaf in figuring out how to make choices and ... more »
