Hey, Look! Nonna And Her Pasta Are On YouTube – The New York Times
The New York Times as of late did a tale about Vicky Bennison and the video arrangement she made, Pasta Grannies. To put it plainly, Mrs. Bennison circumvents Italy, visiting “Nonna” in their homes and making customary pasta. I might be one-sided given my Italian legacy and my recollections of investing energy in the kitchen with my grandma and mom as they cooked Sunday sauce and made pasta, yet as Anthony Bourdain once said, “Food is all that we are. It’s an expansion of patriot feeling, ethnic inclination, your own set of experiences, your area, your district, your clan, your grandmother. It’s indivisible from those from the get-go.”

Eliud Kipchoge Breaks The Two-Hour Barrier In The Marathon – The New Yorker
Waking up last Saturday to the news that Kenyan sprinter Eliud Kipchoge had broken the two-hour boundary for the long distance race was a hell of an approach to begin an end of the week. It’s difficult to exaggerate exactly how crazy an athletic accomplishment this is. Kipchoge ran 26.2 back to back miles at a 4:34 speed. Consider that. A great many people can’t run 200 meters at that speed. Furthermore, until Kipchoge crossed the end goal in Vienna, checking in at 1:59:40, there were as yet numerous individuals who thought it was genuinely inconceivable for the human body to do something like this. There have been a huge load of pieces expounded on Kipchoge’s epic accomplishment in the course of the most recent couple of days, however Ed Caeser’s piece in The New Yorker is probably surprisingly shrewd and celebratory. For a sprinter and an enthusiast of the game, this will be one of those “Where were you when…” minutes, no question.

On the subject of lunch, it’s that equivalent differentiation of extraordinariness that embodies the triumphant photo for the National Geographic 2019 Wildlife Photographer Of The Year. Spoiler alert: the top honor went to the picture appropriately named “The Moment” – which caught a marmot apparently yelling to a Tibetan fox in the voice of Lil Jon, “Okaaay!” before who realizes what occurred. Among the entirety of the triumphant photos, you see with extraordinary sharpness the magnificence of nature as well as the faultless ability and timing these photographic artists display in catching these uncommon moments.
