During the Great Depression, my parents learned about sacrifice. My paternal grandparents had a farm in Minnesota, where my grandmother would often sacrifice some of the family dinner to a wayward traveler or two. She would stretch out a meal with fillers, oftentimes feeding a family using nothing but a ham bone, navy beans, and bread. When World War II started, she sent her sons off to war, putting up a flag with three white stars on it in the front window of the farmhouse. All of her boys came home unscathed. During the war, my grandmother and grandfather had to run an 80-acre farm alone while their sons were at war, and their only daughter was off to California to build airplanes for the war effort. They knew what sacrifice was, and is. After my dad passed away, I found GI Bill paperwork, filled out and ready to go, with notes on majoring in agriculture, and taking over the family farm—my dad never went to college. He met my mom, and his path in life was altered. My parents scrimped and saved, raised three children, put off vacations, and put dreams on hold. My dad worked hard his entire life, only to have the rug pulled out from under him when his boss broke the union. Yet I would not know until years later how precarious their financial situation was. The sacrifices they made to ensure I would never miss out on anything. My parents’ sacrifices were small compared to those of some of their contemporaries in the Greatest Generation. Many men never came home from WWII; left behind were families that suffered in silence, their sons having made the ultimate sacrifice to this nation. Those men who did come home then sent their own sons off to war in Vietnam, and some 58,000 of them did not come home. The man currently leading this country did not go to Vietnam, even though he could have. Trump received five deferments from the draft for military service during the Vietnam War. He received four education deferments while he was a college student and a fifth deferment in 1968 for a medical exemption after he graduated.

One of the most common intramural arguments that Democrats seem to have is which voters to reach out to in order to try to win close elections: Do you try to turn out “base voters”—usually meant to mean young people and/or people of color—who don’t usually vote at high rates but are likely to vote Democratic if they do vote, which means convincing them to vote at all? Or do you try to win over “swing voters” who tend to alternate between voting Democratic or Republican—where you don’t have to convince them to vote, but you do have to convince them to vote Democratic? As with many long-winded arguments, though, it’s one that turns out to be something of a false choice. Doing one doesn’t preclude you from doing the other as well. And based on new research, doing one will help strengthen your position, but to make really big gains, you need to do a lot of both. And a good example of big gains is the 2018 election, where Democrats gained a net 41 seats in the House. That’s not as big as Republican gains in 2010, but it’s still the largest one-year Democratic gain in the House that most of us have seen in our lifetimes. It’ll be difficult to expand much further in the House in 2020, but there are still a White House and a Senate that need to be won back in 2020, and the lessons of 2018 will be helpful. This week, Yair Ghitza of Catalist, the Democratic data-gathering firm (they maintain the vast depository of information known as the “voter file” that you sometimes hear political professionals speaking of in reverent tones), put out a deep dive into how those 2018 victories came about. As you may have guessed, Democrats substantially expanded the electorate for 2018 compared with previous midterms; the composition of the electorate, in terms of the races and ages of those who showed up, was a more Democratic-friendly composition, thanks to an influx of people who don’t usually vote in midterms. But Ghitza also points out some details that may challenge the conventional wisdom about 2018: Democratic gains in 2018, relative to 2016, were actually the largest in rural areas, not suburban areas, and the bulk of the impact in 2018 came from winning back the votes of 2016 Trump voters, not from the newly activated voters.

We used to think that as video games matured, as a medium, they would become more like Hollywood, becoming more focused on character development, plot reversals, and tight, suspense-driven narratives, rather than action set pieces alternating with cinematic cut scenes. Hoo boy, were we wrong. Instead the exact inverse has happened. Action movies have become […]

About one in five Canadian adolescents uses cannabis. Neuroscientists have been researching the effects of cannabis on the adolescent brain. Adolescence is associated with the maturation of cognitive functions, such as working memory, decision-making, impulsivity control and motivation, and the research presented suggests cannabis could have long-lasting, but possibly reversible effects on these.
The culture of planned obsolescence in electronics produces a huge amount of toxic waste unlikely to go anywhere but a landfill for the next millennium or so. Nature produces some of the strongest and most versatile substances we've ever encountered, so why not use them instead? That's what Finnish design house Aivan has attempted with this concept pair of headphones made from fungus, bioplastics, and other natural materials.

1938 Packard Twelve Touring Cabriolet by Brunn will be featured in one of the top lots at RM Sotheby’s upcoming auction, titled, “Auburn Spring” that will take place from May 29 through June 1, 2019, in Auburn, Indiana. The pre-auction estimate of the present car is $125,000 - $150,000. Giving a glimpse of the history of this car, the auction house states, “Once a mainstay of the marque, Packard resurrected the “Twin Six” name for a new V-12 in 1932. A 67-degree V-block, the new powerplant displaced 445 cu. in., just 20 more than its 1920s namesake, but developed 75 percent more power. In 1933 the name was changed to simply “Packard Twelve,” and two years later displacement rose to 473.3 cu. in., making 175 bhp with an immense amount of torque enabling smooth acceleration for even the heaviest custom bodywork. For 1937, the Twelve was given coil spring independent front suspension and hydraulic brakes. In addition to standard bodies, Packard catalogued a number of styles from the major coachbuilders, among them Dietrich, LeBaron, Rollston, and Brunn.” As mentioned by RM Sotheby’s, the present model was the most expensive Packard of its day and it is of just four such examples built for 1938. It has been freshly recommissioned and ready for touring and is beautifully presented inside and out. The auction house further mentions, “In 1935, Buffalo, New York, coachbuilder Hermann Brunn designed for himself a handsome long-wheelbase landaulet-type body with open chauffeur compartment, which he called a cabriolet. Added to the Lincoln catalogue custom line for 1937, it was extended to Packard in 1938. It was offered both as the all-weather cabriolet, with removable leather roof for the chauffeur, or touring cabriolet with a fixed forward roof, accented with small smoked-glass clerestory windows over the windshield. Both styles were available in collapsible form, with a folding rear top and functional landau irons, and non-collapsible with a fixed rear roof and faux landau irons.” RM Sotheby’s further adds, “The car offered here is a truly fine example of a limited-production Packard. It presents in excellent condition with a charming light patina on select interior surfaces. It is equipped with the Packard Deluxe heater, Packard Deluxe radio, heater with accessory rear speaker, trunk rack, Trippe driving lights, and dual side-mounts with metal covers. It was recently given a no-expenses-spared recommissioning, with new tires, hoses, fuel tank, rebuilt carburetor, new water pump, and fresh brakes. A CCCA Full Classic, its ideal for club events and CARavan tours, and represents a rare chance to acquire an excellent example which is fully ready to be enjoyed.”https://www.blouinartinfo.comFounder: Louise Blouin
1955 Fiat 8V Coupe Zagato will be offered for sale at RM Sotheby’s upcoming auction, “Villa Erba” that will take place on May 25, 2019, in Como, Italy. The pre-auction estimate of the present car is €1.600.000 - €1.800.000 and it will be presented in lot 125 at the auction. “Of the many beautiful designs that emerged from Carrozzeria Zagato during the 1950s, few were as timelessly elegant as the berlinetta coachwork built for the Fiat 8V. Celebrated for engineer Dante Giacosa’s two-litre V-8 engine and Fabio Luigi Rapi’s voluptuous factory coachwork, the Otto Vu was publicly introduced at the Geneva Salon in March 1952. Zagato initially had no plans to work on the model until the company received a commission to clothe a private car for Milanese Fiat dealer Ovidio Capelli. With Zagato’s lightweight aerodynamic coachwork mounted on the Otto Vu’s high-performance engine and advanced chassis, the 8V Zagato prototype showed great success at racing events over the next two years, prompting the company to consider a production run. At the Turin Salon in April 1954, the coachbuilder introduced a modified version of the prototype and just 26 coupes were built with Zagato coachwork in total. Though the Zagato-built 8V berlinettas were ostensibly produced in series, the cars were hand built to individual customer order with a host of available features and a palette of different colours, essentially making each car a unique example,” states the auction house. 1955 Fiat 8V Coupe Zagato is one of 26 coupes built and it has been fully restored recently including refinished in its original colors. As RM Sotheby’s mentions, the present car retains its original Tipo 104.000 engine and it is eligible for numerous events, including the Mille Miglia and Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este. It is a true Zagato and Fiat masterwork, one of the most celebrated Italian cars of its decade. The auction house further adds, “Recently acquired by the consignor, the Fiat has since been reunited with its original engine and has been treated to a full restoration, including a new two-tone interior and a refinish in the original factory colour of emerald green. This sensational coachbuilt Fiat has accrued less than 500 km since restoration, and it continues to be eligible for the world’s finest touring and exhibitive events, including the Mille Miglia Storica and the Villa d’Este Concorso d’Eleganza. Chassis no. 000076 is an exquisite example of one of Zagato’s most brilliant creations, offering a crowning complement to any collection.” https://www.blouinartinfo.comFounder: Louise Blouin
1986 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Zagato Coupe will be offered for sale at Bonhams’ upcoming auction, “The Aston Martin Sale” that will be held on May 19, 2019, in Wormsley, UK and it will be featured in lot 217 with a pre-auction estimate of £ 420,000 - 480,000. “With the introduction of the Vantage Zagato, Aston Martin renewed its association with one of Italy's most illustrious carrozzeria, Zagato having been responsible for that most celebrated and desirable of all post-war Astons, the DB4 GT Zagato. Neighboring stands at the 1984 Geneva Salon facilitated the initial contact between Aston Martin chairman, Victor Gauntlett and Elio and Gianni Zagato, and by the following year the project had progressed sufficiently for Aston to accept deposits on the 50 cars planned. Part of Zagato's brief was to shed some of the standard Vantage's not inconsiderable weight, which was achieved by shortening the wheelbase and deleting the rear seats, thus creating Aston's first production two-seater since the DB4 GT. In doing so, Zagato was able to shed all of 168kg (370lbs) from the four-seater V8 saloon's not inconsiderable weight,” states the auction house. As mentioned by Bonhams, the present car is one of only 52 made and it is one of only 27 right-hand drives, manual transmission cars. The auction house also mentions in their press release, “The proven 5.3-litre four-cam V8 was to Vantage specification, producing 432bhp at 6,200rpm and 395ft/lbs of torque at 5,100 revs. Production involved shipping the rolling chassis - complete with engine and drivetrain - to Zagato in Milan for bodying, trimming and painting, following which they were returned to Newport Pagnell for final inspection.” Bonhams further adds, “In 2017 (at 4,223 miles) over £10,000 was spent on preparation and upgrades with renowned marque specialists, Nicholas Mee Limited. These included a service to schedule; a Harvey Bailey handling kit (front anti-roll bar, front dampers, new springs front and rear); set up to Nicholas Mee specification; and other remedial works. In addition, an appropriate registration number, 'VZ 268' has been obtained, bringing '20018' into line with many of its fellow Zagatos that have had carried 'VZ' numbers from new. All of Nicholas Mee's invoices are in the file together with some from the car's time in Hong Kong. Since the current vendor purchased the car in 2017 it has benefited from a full service, carried out in August 2018 at Aston Martin Works, with all minor niggles corrected at the same time (see bill for £11,223 on file). In excellent condition and with very low mileage recorded, this rare and attractively specified Vantage Zagato is supplied fully prepared and serviced, ready to enjoy the celebrations of Carrozzeria Zagato's centenary in 2019.” https://www.blouinartinfo.comFounder: Louise Blouin
