A Sister’s Eulogy for Steve Jobs →
by Mona Simpson Steve was like a girl in the amount of time he spent talking about love. Love was his supreme virtue, his god of gods. […] He believed that love happened all the time, everywhere.

Em meu nome e de todos os integrantes do governo, junto-me neste momento ao carinho e à torcida de todo o povo brasileiro pela rápida recuperação do presidente Lula. Graças aos exames preventivos, a descoberta do tumor foi feita em estágio que permite seu tratamento e cura.

Senna Is The Best Loved Documentary Of The Year –... →
There was a much longer version of the film. There was a lot more material that we’d seen, much of it about “that weekend”. There is no denying it. Anyone that knows anything about formula one, any one that remembers, “that weekend” was a cursed weekend. “That weekend” is a movie in itself. You could easily just make a movie about that, but if you did, you would only see Senna looking unhappy,...

In which a silly space opera brings my whole family to genuine tears “Dad, I think it’s sad that Anakin’s a bad guy.” “Did you just wake up to tell me that?” “Yeah. I hope he gets better.”
We Can All Become Job Creators →

This mechanism is scheduled to be rolled out on Nov. 1. This time, Schultz is not tilting at windmills. […] Here’s the idea they came up with: Americans themselves would start lending to small businesses, with Starbucks serving as the...
‘Morte não será comemorada’ →
“Acho que a Líbia está passando por um processo de transformação democrática. Agora, isso não significa que a gente comemore a morte de qualquer líder que seja. O fato de ela [a Líbia] estar em um processo democrático é algo que todo mundo deve, acho que não é comemorar a palavra, mas apoiar, incentivar e, de fato, o que queremos é que os países tenham a capacidade de, internamente, viver em paz...
