This evening (because evidently I have finally made the crossover to snooty-elitist-sophisticated New Yorker) I attended the New York Philharmonic at Lincoln Center. I am currently enrolled in a Music of New York class and we are focusing on the composer Gustav Mahler, whose 9th symphony was to be…
News is never a 9 to 5 job.
Wednesday evening, with the news that Apple visionary Steve Jobs had passed away from pancreatic cancer, TIME managing editor Rick Stengel (center) decided to stop the presses on the issue the staff had just finished earlier that afternoon. Staff members poured back into the TIME offices for an emergency edit meeting, which left us just over three hours to produce a new issue, many of us working on the very Apple devices that Jobs created.
Thursday, we’ll announce our latest issue featuring Jobs on the cover for the eighth time.
Update: I have appended this follow-up. All Photos are by Sara Krulwich, staff photographer at the NYT and my mother, with two exceptions. The last is a Reuters picture taken at the event, and the first is credited AP Photo/Dima Gavrysh.
Growing up I was a huge apple fan-boy (fine, still am.)…
Badass motherfucker of the century.
THIS KID GIVES ME HOPE.
Fuck the system.
What the fuck kind of school bans The Qu’ran… AND The Divine Comedy? Also, if your school bans Animal Farm they are more than likely trying to brainwash you.

I am 19 years old. I graduated from high school with almost a straight A average. I was set to go to college to become a literature teacher. My dreams seemed so real at the time. After my mother found out about my religious beliefs I was forced to leave home. I started college in the fall of 2011 wile living with my cousins. I was working as a waitress making $2.14 an hour. The tips that I made were enough to get me back and forth to work in gas. Until my car gave out. I had to scrap it for money. My financial aid at the college ran into a snag that I still do not understand. No one would help me. I was told to “check my account online” that was all the advice they could give me. I had no way back and forth to college anymore. I am now living with my cousins and my aunt with no car, not money, and no school. No one in the house has a job. My cousin has been denied disability after working as a welder for years. He can not even kneel to put his knees on the floor. We live off of food stamps and pawning any valuables that we have. But the valuables are running out. Food stamps can not [ay for Christmas dinner plus food for the rest of the days of the month. My family went 4 days without eating last month because we were determined to have an okay Christmas dinner. I have a job interview at McDonald’s on the 30th where I will be making min wage and getting paid every 2 weeks. My cousins will take me back and forth to work. $20 a day for me in gas. I will be the only one working in a house of 5. I owe the college $800.
I am the 99%….
