Greetings Upper School Community:
I hope the start of August finds you well. The following stories and articles were carefully squirreled away during vacation “out East.”
New York Times, Sunday, 17 July 2011: When Cricket Was a Symbol, Not Just a Sport By Baz Dreisinger: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/17/movies/fire-in-babylon-looks-at-west-indies-cricket.html
New York Times, Sunday, 24 July 2011: Kei Igawa: The Lost Yankee, by Bill Pennington: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/24/sports/baseball/kei-igawa-the-lost-yankee.html
Wall Street Journal, Weekend 23-24 July 2011: Easy-to-Guess Passwords Open Door to Hackers, by Carl Bialik: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424053111903461104576462004291230970.html
The Atlantic, July/August, 2011: How to Land Your Kid in Therapy, by Lori Gottleib, including a video interview between the author and Wendy Mogel: http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2011/07/how-to-land-your-kid-in-therapy/8555/
From Nantucket, once haled as the “whaling capital of the world,” the remaining printed-on-island newspaper, The Inquirer and Mirror, covers the on-going saga of a beached humpback whale: http://www.ack.net/deadhumpback071611.html.
And from the 26 June NYTimes Magazine, Sam Anderson pens “An Accidental Experimental Masterpiece,” a fitting homage to the annual World Almanac and Book of Facts; Ben Franklin is grinning somewhere: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/06/26/magazine/an-accidental-experimental-masterpiece.html?_r=1
Happy reading, stay cool, and best wishes as we plunge into August.
