A friend took this photograph of the sunset over Manchester from a railway bridge in Collyhurst. It’s a fantastic shot which I think deserves to be shared. Evening descending with an apocalyptic threat.

A glimpse of Brazil after the elections

By João Augusto de Castro Neves of the Eurasia Group

logoFGVBrazil is witnessing one of the most competitive and thrilling presidential elections in nearly a quarter of a century. In the last three months, polls had the three candidates alternating in the lead. Now, with the second-round runoff between President Dilma Rousseff (Workers’ Party, PT) and Senator Aécio Neves (Brazilian Social Democratic Party, PSDB) close to a toss-up, it’s useful to take a step back to get some perspective on the challenges for the next administration. No matter who wins on  October 26 , the post-election landscape will be as difficult for the next president as the election is electrifying for the candidates.

One And One

Originally posted on City Jackdaw:

Lost in their own kaleidoscope of context, they regard each other with a suspicious eye. Curious, and aware of difference and distance.

Checking out each other’s innovations, reluctant to concede the ground.

One receives the baton, wholly unaware, the other passes it on, with regret. And not a little envy, whispering “Good luck,” before they ride away, in their opposite directions.

The history of the Stapler.

The emergence of the stapler reflects a rise in the use of paper within offices during the 19th century. Previously, sheets of paper had been held together by pins or string or, in the case of legal documents, red tape.

Not everyone liked the idea of a metal fixing. In the early 1900s, several devices were invented which punched through and then wove the papers together in one action, but the idea never really took off.

The notion of creating a more secure fastening, however, was given a boost when Philadelphian Henry Heyl…
