Speedskating on natural ice is a beloved Dutch national pastime. The tradition is alive and well — just not necessarily in the Netherlands, where climate change now yields winters too warm for the waterways to freeze over with any consistency.
“This is sort of a seasonal business — I tell people it’s like selling fruit,” Mr. Koza said. If there is a spiritual homestead for the current cadre of London designers, it is Charleston, the former Sussex home of the artists Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, as well as, at various times, a retreat for most of the early 20th-century writers and other intellectuals who called themselves the Bloomsbury Group. Almost every surface of the farmhouse, which dates to at least the 17th century, has been vividly adorned by the artists who resided there or passed through; those bright hues, dense patterns and unexpected textures remain today. Somehow there is harmony between hand-wrought Mediterranean flourishes, Chinese influences and fusty English armoires, between post-Impressionist-inspired pottery from the Omega Workshops (the studio started by the English art critic and painter Roger Fry) and the yellowing edges of first editions packed in a neo-Classical bookcase. There is no attempt to streamline, no symmetry for its own sake, no wall left blank waiting for the story to be written. What the novelist David Garnett (Grant’s lover) once observed about Charleston easily applies to these contemporary British designers, who joyously embrace the past but remain hopeful about the future. The house, with its solid old bones, had been “decorated and altered almost out of recognition,” he wrote in his 1956 autobiography, “as the bodies of the saved are said to be glorified after the resurrection.”XS M S

We’re not all loud activists. A lot of us want to go back and finish our high school career the best we can. For college, I want to go to Ireland, where my parents are from, because I just don’t want to do four more years of schooling here. I really don’t like how divided this country is. In Ireland, there’s no guns.
The effort to record audio of passengers and drivers in Brazil and Mexico will begin next month, Uber said. Drivers and passengers in those areas have been targets of crime, and some have been robbed or killed. The company said it would share the audio recordings with law enforcement authorities if asked to do so. While it is unusual for a grenade to evade detection as it travels halfway across the world, this was not the first war relic to be unearthed somewhere surprising. A farmer in Scotland discovered an unexploded World War II bomb last year, and farmers in Belgium have found shells even in fields that have been plowed many times before.
