5 books worth reading this summer
May 21, 2018 | | LinkedIn| Bill Gates

Leonardo da Vinci, by Walter Isaacson. I think Leonardo was one of the most fascinating people ever. Although today he’s best known as a painter, Leonardo had an absurdly wide range of interests, from human anatomy to the theater...... A worthy follow-up to Isaacson’s great biographies of Albert Einstein and Steve Jobs.

Everything Happens for a Reason and Other Lies I’ve Loved, by Kate Bowler.

Lincoln in the Bardo, by George Saunders. I thought I knew everything I needed to know about Abraham Lincoln, but this novel made me rethink parts of his life. It blends historical facts from the Civil War with fantastical elements—it’s basically a long conversation among 166 ghosts, including Lincoln’s deceased son.

Origin Story: A Big History of Everything, by David Christian.

Factfulness, by Hans Rosling, with Ola Rosling and Anna Rosling Ronnlund.

Martha’s Vineyard Has a Nourishing Magic for Black Americans
AUG. 22, 2017 | The New York Times | By NICOLE TAYLOR.

At least five generations of the African-American creative and professional classes have spent summer breaks on this island off Cape Cod, from 19th-century whaling captains to the filmmaker Spike Lee. Every August, Barack Obama and his family sign the imaginary visitor log and devour New England’s casual pace, long bike rides and ice cream pit stops.

An African-American resort area that’s more than 125 years old, Oak Bluffs has earned its seat at history’s table. Black families stay all over the island now, huddling over lobster rolls or fried clams from Chilmark to Edgartown, but that was not always the case. “Oak Bluffs,” Dr. Harris said, “was the hub of the island’s black life.”

Summer Reading: One expert. One book. -
Published June 16, 2017

1. 'Waking Lions' by Ayelet Gundar-Goshen. A wealthy Israeli neurosurgeon fatally hits an African migrant with his car on a deserted road and flees the scene. The doctor is married to the police detective who investigates the hit and run. In the book, set in the Israeli city of Beersheba, the dead man’s widow blackmails the doctor, keeping his crime a secret if he provides medical care to other refugees.
2. 'A Separation' by Katie Kitamura (Feb. 7) RECOMMENDED BY: Lynn Lobash, manager of reader services at the New York Public Library
A husband goes missing, and the wife from whom he is secretly separated travels to southern Greece to investigate his disappearance. Once there, she senses he was probably sleeping with the receptionist at her luxury hotel, and she can’t tell if the locals are being helpful or are trying to cover up his whereabouts.
3. 'The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo' by Taylor Jenkins Reid (June 13)
RECOMMENDED BY: Elizabeth Khuri Chandler, editor-in-chief and co-founder of the book-discussion site Goodreads. The novel, which more than 16,000 Goodreads members have marked as a book they want to read, tells the story of a movie star from her rise to fame in the 1950s to the present day. Time is marked through the acquisition and removal of her various husbands. The reclusive Hollywood icon tells her story to a rookie journalist who can’t figure out why she was chosen as the biographer.
4. 'The Prey of Gods' by Nicky Drayden (June 13) RECOMMENDED BY: Sharifah Williams, associate editor at the book blog Book Riot . The book features a world threatened by a new hallucinogenic drug called Godsend, the seeds of a robot uprising and an ancient demigoddess/part-time nail technician who preys on the blood of humans.
5. 'Borne' by Jeff VanderMeer (April 25) RECOMMENDED BY: David Naimon, host of the Between the Covers podcast. Rachel, a scavenger in a ruined city, finds Borne, a piece of biotech that looks like a squid mixed with a sea anemone and is instilled with a kind of humanity.
6. 'The Changeling' by Victor LaValle (June 13) RECOMMENDED BY: Lydia Kiesling, editor, The Millions, an online magazine about arts and culture. A rare-book dealer’s wife and infant son disappear in a scene so horrifying Ms. Kiesling urges parents of young children not to let it drive them away altogether.
7. 'We Are Never Meeting in Real Life' by Samantha Irby (May 30) RECOMMENDED BY: Marisa Siegel, editor-in-chief and owner, The Rumpus, a literary website. Ms. Siegel felt so passionately about this essay collection by Ms. Irby, creator of the blog “bitches gotta eat,” that she picked it over any fiction options.

The Summer of Love: A Walking Tour of San Francisco, 50 Years Later
Unfurling from the eastern border of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, the Haight served as the epicenter of America’s 1960s counterculture movement. “The Haight-Ashbury was the product of teen rebellion against 1950s’ regimentation and the Vietnam War,” said a guide for the local Flower Power Walking Tour who goes by the name Stannous Flouride. “The anarchic aspect was seen as a threat against the establishment but ultimately had a profound influence on American culture.” Cheap rents, more than anything else, drew the first wave of bohemians in the early 1960s. Legions followed, cresting in 1967 when some 100,000 students, musicians and others flocked to San Francisco for a summer of drug-enhanced communing and revelry that horrified parents. This year, to mark the anniversary, events from concerts to art exhibits are being staged throughout the Bay Area (see for details).

Hit songs of 1967 included the Airplane’s “White Rabbit,” “San Franciscan Nights” (inspired by a night Eric Burdon spent with Janis Joplin) and the blissed-out ballad “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair).”

The Fast Lane: Edge of the seat stuff —
AUGUST 12, 2016 by: Tyler Brûlé

Aside from working on the structure of my presentation, I’ve been thinking about what elements can be lifted from the page to make for a more animated session and I’ve decided that nothing gets people on the edge of their seats more than a little competition..... I do a little quiz and the fastest, most accurate responders get a little prize sent their way. On September 3 I’m going to take the quiz concept live and incentivise the audience with a few treats that will hopefully generate a healthy bit of competition.....I’m going to be giving some thought to one of the key questions that will be on most peoples’ minds as they shift from summer mode and into the rush of autumn — “How can I turn that lovely business idea I had on Hydra in mid-August into reality?”

During the past week alone I must have come up with no fewer than five ideas that I feel need further consideration and possible business planning. Perhaps an added element to the event might be a round of polling and fundraising for the best idea.

Toronto's summertime roadwork fest the start of a noisier – but sounder – future - The Globe and Mail
The Globe and Mail
Published Friday, Jul. 18 2014

Bloor Street West is getting new sidewalks and asphalt. Dundas and Spadina is being dug up for track and water-main work. Construction fencing is going in and heavy equipment setting up on Eglinton Avenue for the Crosstown light-rail transit project. Then, of course, there is the Gardiner Expressway, now in the midst of a massive rehabilitation that often slows traffic to a crawl even more snail-like than usual. With contractors hurrying to finish projects for next year’s Pan American Games as well, it is feeling like the worst construction season in years.

Summer Entertaining: Casa BBQ Beer Can Chicken Tacos
- June 20th, 2013 |Everything Zoomer

* Guacamole
* Fire-Roasted Four-Pepper Salsa
* Chicken Taco Mixture
To prepare the chicken, rinse the chicken under cold running water. Place chicken into a large self-sealing bag or small bucket.

In a bowl, combine the salt, honey, water and 2 cans of beer. Stir until salt and honey have dissolved. Add garlic cloves, fresh sage and peppercorns. Pour over chicken, cover and refrigerate for 24 hours.

Remove chicken from brine, discarding leftover brine. Pat chicken dry with paper towels.

Open the last can of beer; take a good-sized sip out of it. Quality assurance! Squish a couple of wedges of lime into the opening of the beer can. Put one pie plate inside another. Place beer can holder onto pie plate, then slide opened can into holder. Slide the chicken over the can so that the beer can is in the cavity of the bird and the bird is standing upright. Tuck the wings behind its back and pull the neck skin flap up over the opening. If there is not enough skin to seal it up, tuck a small lime or a small potato into the neck. This will help keep the steam and extra beer flavor in the chicken.

Video: Chilled cucumber soup: the perfect summer lunch - The Globe and Mail

1 English cucumber (about 500g)
1-1/4 cups plain yogurt
1 clove garlic
2 tbsp white wine vinegar
9 to 10 fresh mint leaves (plus extra for garnish)
1 cup half and half cream
salt and pepper


Wash and roughly peel the cucumber, leaving some green on the exterior. Halve it lengthwise and scoop out the seeds with a spoon. Cut the cucumber into a large dice.

Place cucumber, yogurt, garlic clove, vinegar and mint leaves in a blender or food processor and buzz until smooth.

Pour the soup into a clean bowl and add 1 cup half and half cream. For a slightly denser, silkier feel use a higher fat cream but add less. Just taste as you go.

Season with salt and pepper and keep chilled in the fridge until you serve.
