fresh from seeing the film a quiet passion i am moved to remind myself of another side of emily dickinson's life. true, dickinson despaired over many features of her existence including her lack of traditional physical beauty, her brother's infidelity to her close friend and the clumsy religiosity of her local church, but she also helped many of us reach for the deep and lasting joys of simple things. this latter gift is sadly not so evident in the film.on the other hand, the canberra museum and gallery (cmag) currently houses an exhibition called aviary. on the wall is a quote from one of dickinson's letters, which reads, "i hope you love birds too. it is economical. it saves going to heaven." thank you. every day we have this heaven in canberra and i think we should take emily's reminder...

“may the world be peppered with garden spicers by monday,” we wrote on friday, tickled by the emergence of cutout sean spicer heads designed to be tucked into bushes and shrubs. our wishes came true, because the nation’s greenery is now serving as a refuge for the trump administration’s embattled press secretary. the #gardenspicer trend came about when spicer hid from reporters not in the bushes, but among them, in the wake of the firing of fbi director james comey. facebook user lisa kadonga got things started with the idea. she has since updated the post multiple times with the means for people to make their own garden spicers.garden spicers have been popping up in bushes, house plants, office greenery, and elsewhere all weekend, with the results unfolding on twitter via #gardens...

new delhi — one woman was brutally gang raped and murdered, her body left disfigured in a patch of shrubs near her home in a north indian village. days later, another woman was abducted and gang raped in a moving car in a new delhi suburb.the two crimes were reminiscent of the horrific 2012 deadly gang rape in new delhi that spurred widespread protests and harsher punishments for perpetrators. yet they occurred just after india’s supreme court upheld death sentences for the rapists in that 2012 case, proving that the strengthened laws and more severe sentences aren’t deterring violent crimes against women in india, experts said.perpetrators still “feel they can get away with crimes against women,” said jagmati sangwan, of the all india democratic women’s association. “there i...
