Friends: The Reunion

   2021    Art
For the first time after seventeen years and their last appearance on the final episode of the TV series in 2004, Jennifer Aniston; Courteney Cox; Lisa Kudrow; Matt LeBlanc; Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer, find themselves under the same roof for a reunion special. Hosted by James Corden, and produced by the show's co-creators, Marta Kauffman, David Crane, and Kevin Bright, the show's main cast feels at home in the original sets of Friends (1994), taking a trip down memory lane while sitting on Central Perk's couch.
Brimming with emotion, laughter, and tears of joy, 'Friends: The Reunion' sheds light on ambivalent endings, the casting process, and many more, as the main cast re-enacts older Friends episodes and meets with a plethora of celebrity guests, including Maggie Wheeler, the show's Janice Litman-Goralnik; Justin Bieber; Cindy Crawford; Cara Delevingne; Lady Gaga; David Beckham; Tom Selleck, and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, Malala Yousafzai.

Why do we need to spend nearly a third of our lives in such a defenseless state?

So why are we getting so little of it?

Your Brain on Tech

   2018    Technology
Two and a half thousand years ago, the Greek philosopher Socrates worried that the wide use of writing would have a negative impact on people's minds. He said that writing would create forgetfulness, because people will not use their memories. They would trust the external written characters and not remember themselves. In a world with an ever-growing tech industry, Michael Stevens tries to find out what effect technology has on our brains. He finds Technology isn't just changing our lives, it's changing our brains. In his experiments he tests what just 10 days of gaming does to things like our spatial memory.

Notes on Blindness

In the summer of 1983, just days before the birth of his first son, writer and theologian John Hull went blind. In order to make sense of the upheaval in his life, he began keeping a diary on audiocassette.
