This is a 5-inch diameter magnifying glass mounted on a swing arm, and the assembly has a vice clamp to mount itself to the edge of a table or desk. It includes a ring of light around the lens to illuminate the work vividly. This allows you to place your work on the furniture surface and swing the magnifier over the work so you can comfortably access tools, the material, and additional lighting when needed. When one does not need it, it can be taken down and stored in twenty seconds, and set back up as needed in almost as little time.   more...

It was meant to be a short ride on a brisk Saturday night. Two men, one jet ski and a setting sun, observed from the choppy channel waves against the city skyline. But what started as a quick out-and-back from a marina in Brooklyn became an all-night ordeal of solitary survival on two tiny islands, capped by a rapid rescue on Sunday morning involving three Fire Department boats and a Police Department helicopter. "All night I swam," one of the men, Timur Bekbulatov, 29, of Sea Gate, Brooklyn, told a Fire Department rescue team that found him stranded on a privately-owned lighthouse island.   more...

HAMMOND, Wis. - In Spain, they run bulls. In Kentucky, thoroughbreds. But here in America's Dairyland, llamas are the four-legged athletes of choice. On Saturday afternoon, the llamas converged on this tiny town in the corn-covered hills of western Wisconsin, as they do each September. A llama named Lightning, a 14-year-old with swift feet and a bit of a temper, claimed the heaping basket of tomatoes and peppers that goes to the speediest camelid. To the roughly 1,900 residents of Hammond, the Running of the Llamas is something far more than an annual excuse to watch South American pack animals lope down Davis Street.   more...

At first, I tried to ignore the unsettling signs that my job was in danger: the gentle prodding from my bosses, who suggested that I needed to broaden my responsibilities; the effusive praise for a charming, newly hired colleague, who was shaking things up with his get-up-and-go. I dug in my heels. I was hired to do this, I told myself, not that. This was collecting admission from visitors to the Staten Island Children's Museum (and burying myself in my favorite books when traffic was slow). That was actively engaging with parents and children, offering impromptu tours and demonstrating the ins and outs of the exhibits.   more...

EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ. - EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ. On a gorgeous day outside MetLife Stadium, George Fitzgerald, a Giants fans of 32 years' standing, tossed around a football with his brothers and son. "We've been having a tough time for the last year, last week," he said. "We're here to support them. Hopefully, we're going to see a win and get them back on the straight and narrow." The Giants later fell to 0-2 when they lost, 25-14, to the Arizona Cardinals, but on a nearly perfect day for football, for the Fitzgeralds, life was good.   more...

When John Ashbery, the Pulitzer Prize-winning poet, first learned that the digital editions of his poetry looked nothing like the print version, he was stunned. There were no line breaks, and the stanzas had been jammed together into a block of text that looked like prose. The careful architecture of his poems had been leveled. He complained to his publisher, Ecco, and those four e-books were immediately withdrawn. That was three years ago, and digital publishing has evolved a lot since then. Publishers can now create e-books that better preserve a poet's meticulous formatting.   more...
