01. Exploring Mortality With Clothes and a Claw (Above)

“At first sight, the monumental artwork being installed at the Park Avenue Armory suggests nothing so much as a crane claw, the frustrating arcade game in which a player tries to pull a stuffed animal from a pile of many, and to hold on to it, with a grapple controlled by a joystick.” (NYT).

02. The Return of Ben & Jerry’s Limited Batch Key Lime Pie

“Since I’ve already sampled all of the spring 2010 Ben & Jerry’s flavors, including the under-the-radar Flourless Chocolate Cake, I’m usually on auto-pilot when I walk past their pints at the grocery store. The other day, though, two of my favorite words—”Limited Batch”—jumped out at me, emblazoned across a pint of Key Lime Pie.” (serious eats).

03. Get the Salomon Kalou look!

“As anyone who wore a gentleman’s skirt in the 1990s will attest to, footballers set the trends, then the people just follow them. So far, they’ve given the planet: feathery haircuts, enormous tie knots, tight suit trousers, the Jamie Redknapp “Jarhead” look, a sleeve’s worth of tatts, buxom girlfriends, and demi-beards.” (The Spoiler).

04. Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution: Serving Up A Side of Individual Blame

“Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, co-produced by Fresh One and Ryan Seacrest Productions, premiered on ABC on March 26, 2010 to 7 million viewers. The six-episode series aimed to bring a revolution to Huntington, West Virginia, a five-county metropolitan area (including West Virginia, Kentucky, and Ohio), which was named by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as the “unhealthiest in America.”1 The study, based on 2006 data, found that 45% of adults in the Huntington-Ashland metropolitan area were obese and that the area had the highest incidence of heart disease and diabetes in the United States.2 Like much of the country, Huntington could use some schooling to improve its citizens’ health, but I am not convinced ABC’s reality program fits the bill.” (Flowtv).
