Martin: Celebrate National Caribbean-American Heritage Month

By Melissa Martin Start planning a party for the 2019 National Caribbean-American Heritage Month. Listen to the sounds of reggae, meringue, calypso, rumba and zouk music during the merrymaking.

Gordon Barlow: Assange and the evil empire

By Gordon Barlow Whatever else he is, Assange is a master of propaganda. Every seller of goods or services in the world ought to be begging his advice on the subject. He may or may not have the skill to boost sales or revenue, but he sure can destroy his enemies’ credibility. Several years ago, […]

Martin: Mother Nature and human nature changes our world

By Melissa Martin Mother Nature and human nature changes our world Nature changes our world and human nature changes our world. And they both affect each other.

Financial moguls keep our name alive everywhere – in newspapers, novels and movies, in comic strips and late-night talk-shows. Cruise-ship tourists wear T-shirts that […]

The learning funnel

By Paul McGowan From PS Audio My post about mavens got me to thinking about how our learning curve funnels from the big to the small. We start with a big idea or project and over time narrow down to the nitty-gritty. Working with the new PS Audio AN3 loudspeakers has been a challenge made easier because of our […]

Micro or Macro Maven?

By Paul McGowan From PS Audio I am a wholesale swap kind of guy. If something isn’t performing the way I want I’d sooner move it along and get another. Out with the old and in with the new! But I admire (to the point of envy) those with more patience and kindness towards the […]
