  • Will Video Kill the Celluloid Star?

    Most loves fade over time, and the romance of a hundred-plus years of filmmaking seems to be losing its luster as well. At least, that's what the new High Definition video vanguard, led by George Lucas and Robert Rodriguez, is saying. Is video the future of film?

  • To Your Health

    My thyroid test results vary a lot and don't seem to match the way I feel. My prescription for thyroid is usually 75 micrograms (mcg) per day, but sometimes down to 50 mcg/day or up to 88 mcg/day. Why would it vary and what is the best way to tell if my thyroid is OK?

  • An Artificial Wilderness

    Philip Bobbitt's The Shield of Achilles is getting a serious and heartening push from its publisher, Knopf, writes Roger Gathman. Does he seriously think there's an audience for a book that, among other things, explains the strategic deliberations of Napoleon III? "I always conceived a large audience for this book," Bobbitt claims. "I'd be crushed if scholars didn't attend to this book, but I meant it for anybody who wants to keep seriously informed about world affairs."
