DIY

Interior design maven and Instagram star Whitney Leigh Morris, of the Tiny Canal Cottage, makes living in a mere 400 square feet (37 sq m) look elegant and effortless—even with a husband, baby, and two beagles in the mix. In her debut book, Whitney shares her best ideas for making any tiny space efficient and stylish—whether it’s a rustic A-frame in the woods or a chic microapartment in the city. Includes fun and simple DIY projects galore.

look using wood and plumbing pipe and fixtures. Try combining materials, such as copper with pine or dark charcoal-stained wood with galvanized pipe.

S T E P O N E Plan your design around standard lengths of pipe, noting that you will need short lengths to go between shelves and two longer lengths to extend the full height and width. First, select wood for your shelves and measure the board thickness to determine how much threading you need at the ends of your pipe, keeping in mind that—when the pipe is inserted through a threaded flange and one of the shelf boards—the threaded portion should extend halfway through the board. Purchase unthreaded pipe and ask the retailer to add the required threads to the ends.

S T E P T W O Make a template for where the pipe goes through the shelf and mark these spots on each shelf. Drill the holes so they’re equal to the outside diameter of the pipe, which can differ from the pipe’s labeled size.

S T E P T H R E E Screw the threaded flanges onto each shelf, aligning one above and one below each pipe hole. Measure and mark spots for two casters on each side of the bottom shelf; use the mounting hardware to affix. Then, starting with the bottom shelf, position two of the shorter vertical pipes in the two flanges. Always dry-fit the pipe to the flange to make sure the heights are equal before applying glue to both the pipe end and the fitting.

S T E P S I X Use the bottom shelf for footwear and the shelves on the side for stacks of jeans and sweaters. Add hooks to the outer ends of the shelves for hats, scarves, and purses, and mount a full-length mirror on the wall near the dressing bar extension.

ADVICE FROM THE COTTAGE

085 Set Up a Mini Garden Getaway Even the tiniest slice of earth outside your home—a stoop, a driveway, an alley, a porch, or a little garden—can be transformed into a useful, tranquil retreat with minimal effort and cost. Indeed, encompassing any outdoor areas is a delightful and effective way to enlarge and enhance your living space. Tailor your outdoor oasis to your style and taste, but keep your climate in mind when selecting plants, furnishings, and decor.

We access it through a Dutch door in our kitchen, and it serves as an herb garden, a dining room, a living room, a screening room (we just set up a projector when we want to watch a movie), a playroom, and a bar. We have a simple and lovely lattice garden (see #093) and an outdoor storage bench used as a couch. We set up a table and chairs for guests when we have larger parties.

107 Go with Open or Closed Cabinets The passionate debate among interior designers as to whether open or closed shelving is the best solution to all our kitchen storage needs is still going strong. On one hand, open storage is airy, streamlined, and elegant, and it allows you to display a collection of beautiful tools, ceramics, and glassware. Plus, you never lose anything, because it’s all right there in front of your eyes. On the other hand, it’s all right there in front of your eyes: mismatched mugs, less-than-aspirational plastic food-storage containers, packaged pantry

you don’t have a range hood over your oven. As a compromise, some people keep cabinets open but go with glass doors. At the Cottage, we opt for a mix: We store our prettier pieces on open shelves and our hardworking but less lovely objects behind closed cabinet doors. But in general, the discipline behind open storage is great to practice: If you must show the world everything in your kitchen, it will force you to pick beautiful dining and serving pieces, decant ugly packaging into more harmonious and refined storage containers, pay attention to form and color, and do a regular edit of your pantry goods to keep your shelves tidy and accessible.

Mood Master When it comes to creating a space that feels reflective of your personality yet respectful of the past, creative director Chris Benz could be considered something of an expert. Benz purchased his historic 1905 Brooklyn brownstone in 2014; over the course of three years, he designed a dynamic, huesaturated home that feels modern and creative, steeped in history but not bogged down by tradition. “I grew up spending lots of time at my grandparents’ house in Port Madison, Bainbridge Island,” says Benz. “It was this terrific red-ship captain’s house from 1850. That love of old houses and decorating has never escaped me.” Equipped with a binder full of inspiration, a lengthy renovation paved the way to what is now Benz’s dream home. “I had a plan months before closing, so I was as prepared as possible,” says Benz. “My approach—since I intended to live on-site while working on the property—was to work from the top floor, finish, and move down. In retrospect, it really made no difference, cleanliness-wise, because no amount of taping-off rooms prevents dust and debris from going everywhere!” The house itself had remained remarkably untouched, lived in by only one family since it was built at the turn of the 20th century. Benz retained as much of the original detailing

“Peter was adamant about having a good bar in the kitchen,” says Lizzie. Forgoing the trendy, gilded bar cart look, the couple settled on a vintage medicine cart to serve up Aperol spritzes and tequila negronis.

An 80-year-old Turkish carpet that Lizzie’s sister Kathryn brought back from the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul hangs on the wall of the open living and kitchen area. It’s hung over a wrack for a more casual feel, and plays well with travel-inspired motifs and warm tones of the throw pillows and rugs.

Planning, Planting & Cultivating

PLANT AN ORCHARD Don’t be intimidated by the word orchard. Integrate the fruit trees into an existing shrub bed and they quickly become landscape plants. Whether you choose to grow two fruit trees or a half-acre orchard, here are a few particulars to keep in mind.

Test Garden Tip

054

GET SMALL Even the smallest yard usually has space for a fruit tree. For years, scientists have been working to select and produce small, productive fruit trees for home landscapes. When shopping at the nursery, check the plant tag for important information about tree height and spread.

055

ORGANIZE YOUR ORCHARD Before you start digging holes around your property and ordering fruit trees from those beautiful catalogs, spend some time planning. You won’t regret it. SITE SPECIFICS Selecting a site for a

fruit tree involves taking stock of the planting site’s current conditions and predicting future conditions. Fruit trees require full sun for good growth and fruit production, so pay close attention to nearby trees, which may

cast shade on the young fruit tree in 5 or 10 years as the plants mature. Fertile, well-drained soil is essential. Like most edibles, fruit trees will grow poorly, if at all, in heavy clay soil. ENSURE POLLINATION Several

types of fruit require more than one variety for pollination and subsequent fruit production. These plants set fruit only when they receive pollen from a nearby plant of a different variety. These types of plants are called self-sterile and include some peaches, apricots, crabapples, most apples, pears, plums, and sweet cherries. ‘Royal Ann’ sweet cherry, for example, must be within 100 feet (30 m) of another cherry tree with compatible pollen that blooms at the same time or it will not produce any cherries. CARE AND MAINTENANCE When given regular care, fruit trees will produce bushels of fruit 3 to 5 years after planting. Deep watering is essential during the first year after planting. To encourage strong root growth, soak the tree root zone every week or two during the first year after planting. Drought conditions will require more frequent watering. Prevent competition for moisture by removing weeds and grass from underneath the tree canopy. Spread a 4- to 6-inch (10–15-cm) layer of mulch under the tree, keeping it away from the trunk. Plan to prune fruit trees every two to three years to ensure strong branching structure that will support developing fruit.

056

MIX IT UP

Plant care and pollination are often simplified when several different fruit trees are planted together in a small backyard orchard.

138 DRESS UP A WINDOW BOX This simple design turns a narrow shutter attached to a cedar window box and a little yellow paint into a sunny container. Weather-hardy plants here include lantana (Lantana camara ‘Tropical Fruit’), sedge (Carex flagellifera ‘Toffee Twist’), and coleus (Coleus ‘Rustic Orange’).

FENCE THE FLOWERS A sturdy section of bentwood garden edging comes to the rescue of tall summer flowers. It’s easy to make these flower supports with twigs and stems pruned from shrubs and small trees around the garden. These panels are taller than regular garden edging: Consider them portable miniature fence sections you can use just where you need them and for as long as they’re needed. They are as handy in a vegetable and herb garden as they are among the daisies, and they’re perfect for defining a border. After you make one, you’ll find multiple ways to put it to work.

MATERIALS Loppers; pruning shears; 3, 30‑inch (76 cm) branches, approximately 1 inch (2.5 cm) in diameter; 3, 36–inch (91 cm) branches, less than 1 inch (2.5 cm) in diameter; 2, 25‑inch (63.5 cm) branches, about ½ inch (1 cm) in diameter; 45‑inch (114 cm) flexible whip or woody shoot; sallboard nails: 1½ inches (4 cm); hammer; 16‑gauge tie wire; wire cutters; pliers; wire nails: 17 gauge, 1 inch (2.5 cm)

Homesteading

STEP 1 Lay out design using the 30-inch-long (76 cm) pieces as the upright posts. Set outside posts 30 inches (76 cm) apart; place the center upright slightly higher than the end posts. Lay the three 36-inch (91 cm) crosspieces on top, placing lowest crosspiece 12 inches (30 cm) above the bottom of the upright posts. Crosspieces will extend about 3 inches (8 cm) beyond posts on either side. The bottom of the center upright should be slightly below the lowest crosspiece.

STEP 2 Nail the crosspieces to each of the upright posts. If necessary, use scrap lumber wedges to support the stems and prevent stems from splitting while driving the nails. Turn the panel over. Snip pieces of wire long enough to wrap around the joints; use pliers to twist the wire, making tight joints. Do this at every junction between crosspieces and the posts.

STEP 3 Turn the panel face-up and position the ray pieces in a V-shape. Use wire nails to secure the rays to the crosspieces where they meet. Bend the long whip and place it on top of everything, nailing it onto the panel in at least three places. When you place your flower fence in the garden, dig small holes for the posts with a trowel. Firm the soil around the posts.

Rock Stars This star-shaped beach sculpture was inspired by the star-shaped rock at its center. When it emerged at low tide, the rock was covered in sea grass and the sand around it was smooth and untouched. From afar, the rock looked like a little island. Using the rock’s own form, we traced the star’s points around its base to make a bigger star, then filled the outline with white shells and shell fragments collected at the beach. We kept the sand around the rock smooth by kneeling in one place and reaching over to fill in each point.

rainbow rya knot pillow

This shaggy and bright cushion is one of my all-time favorite weaving crafts. It’s just rya knots repeated over and over—let your fingers take over and you’ll have a fabulous accessory in no time. I also dyed the pillow’s linen backing with logwood for a little extra handmade element. Do a whole bunch—they look amazing together on a couch or bed. YOU’LL NEED READY-MADE LOOM (OR MAKE YOUR OWN; SEE PAGE 68) WARP, SUCH AS TAPESTRY COTTON WARP THREAD OR STRONG TWINE WEFT, APPROXIMATELY 2 POUNDS (1 KG) OF 20-PLY CHUNKY WOOL IN AS MANY COLORS AS YOU LIKE SCISSORS BEATER, BOBBIN, OR TABLE FORK (OPTIONAL) PINS, SEWING NEEDLE, AND THREAD PREMIUM SOFT FILL LINEN BACKING, CUT TO 11 BY 16¾ INCHES (28 BY 42.5 CM)

01 Warp up your loom to your desired cushion width. (Mine is 15¾/40 cm wide, but you can make yours in whatever dimensions you please.) As always, start by knotting a row of double half-hitch knots across the warp, then weave a row of tabby weaving 1 inch (2.5 cm) high. The tabby weaving won’t show, so it can be in any color of yarn. 02 Cut all your yarn into roughly 4-inch (10-cm) lengths, then group several together for your first rya knot. Since I used chucky yarn, I made bunches of 3 strands; if you choose a lighter yarn, try groups of 5. Do one row of rya knots in this color, alternating the warp as you go. Your next row will fall on the warps that you skipped on the first row. 03 Continue with rows of rya knots in your first color until you’re satisfied with the shape you’ve made. Here, I went with organic patches of about ten colors, but you could also try a more geometric grid. Move onto your next color of yarn, continuing to alternate rya knots along the warp with each row. 04 Once you have reached the desired height of your cushion (mine is 10 inches/25 cm), weave another 1 inch (2.5 cm) of tabby weaving. Complete the weave with a final row of double half-hitch knots. 05 Carefully cut the weave from the loom. (Flip it over—even the back looks great!) Now place it on a work surface with the right side facing down. No need to trim the warp, as it will be concealed inside the finished pillow. 06 Iron the seam lines of your linen backing. (Make sure to pick a hue that works nicely with your weaving.) Pin the woven cushion front to the linen. With a large sewing needle and thread in a fun color (I chose gold), sew three sides of the cushion together with a running stitch, turning the tabby weaving over as you go. 07 Insert the premium soft fill, then stitch the remaining cushion side closed.

2. Using pins, attach the hexagon shapes to the pillow front, leaving the centers free and small gaps between each shape. Mark a seam line down the center of each row (B) and machine-stitch using neutral-color thread. With right sides together, sew the pillowcase, leaving a 5-inch gap on one side to insert the pillow form. Turn the pillowcase right side out, insert the pillow form, and whipstitch the opening closed with matching thread.

felt facts There’s so much more to felt than primary colors and flimsy rectangles. Today’s felt is made from acrylic, wool, bamboo, or rayon blends and is sold off the bolt and by the sheet. It’s also available in a variety of thicknesses, from 2 to 10 millimeters. If you can’t find the right felt for your needs at local crafts or fabrics stores, hit the Web. Our favorite sources for beautiful felt include commonwealthfelt.com, purlsoho.com, and thefeltpod.com.

Since his modest debut in 1928, Walt Disney’s creation has become one of the world’s most recognized and beloved characters.

to the theater-going public, Walt Disney’s studio had already experimented with Technicolor in the Silly Symphonies, a series of musical short films that debuted in 1929. When The Band Concert was reimagined and released in color in 1935, Mickey himself was also partially redesigned, giving him a more believable and lively appearance. At the time, this was considered Mickey’s greatest performance, but it also marked the beginning of an end to his solo career: Mickey’s character, tried and true, was cute and appealing, but not inherently funny. Walt and his staff recognized his unwavering charm and complemented him with a diverse cast of characters that could act as his foils. Among others, there was the cantankerous Donald Duck, the clumsy, aptly named Goofy, and the beloved and loyal dog Pluto, Mickey’s best friend. Following The Band Concert, the trio of Mickey, Donald, and Goofy would appear together on adventures audiences fell in love with, including Mickey’s Fire Brigade (1935), Moose Hunters (1937), and Clock Cleaners (1937). Between 1938 and 1940, Mickey was at the peak of his superstardom. In 1938, Brave Little Tailor—adapted from the German fairy tale “The Valiant Little Tailor” (1640) and now considered one of the best and most entertaining Mickey shorts—was nominated for an Academy Award®.

entle and soft-spoken, Eric was the man the other artists went to when they had troubles, knowing they would find

a sympathetic ear and good advice. His kind demeanor made him the logical choice to head the training program for young animators. His students—who adored him—included Brad Bird, Tim Burton, Ron Clements, Mark Henn, John Musker, John Pomeroy, and Henry Selick, all of whom became celebrated animators and directors themselves. They later joked that Eric came to resemble the paternal owl he animated in Bambi (1942). Animator and historian Andreas Deja described him as “someone you’d want to have as your grandfather.” Decades later, animator Glen Keane recalled one of Eric’s key tenets: “Observation is the key to what you are going to animate.” Before coming to the Studios, Eric worked in commercial art, but he also made woodblock prints, winning honorable mentions at an international exhibit in Los Angeles. In his spare time, he experimented with writing for radio. His friend Richard Creedon, a former radio writer who had moved to the Disney Story Department, encouraged him to come

Left to Right: Trainees Bill Frake, Kathy Zielinski, and Matt O’Callaghan, with Eric Larson

to the Studios. As an animator and a director, Eric cherished the collaborative spirit he found at The Walt Disney Studios. In a 1986 interview, he reflected, “One thing about this business: Nobody is an island unto himself. We used to have a saying that everybody worked over everybody else’s shoulder and in everybody else’s lap. That’s what impressed me about that darn place: Everybody was willing to share the knowledge they had; you didn’t have to use what someone else said, but it was given without any petty feelings of superiority.”

and storylines. Charlie Brown’s unwavering optimism evolved through his distinct interactions with the vast Peanuts universe, such as his eternal pursuit of Lucy’s football and his mail-box stakeout for a valentine from the Little Red-Haired Girl. The magic wasn’t in the characters, but rather in the way the characters acted and reacted with each other. That magic is explored in The Complete Peanuts Family Album, a comprehensive look at the Peanuts characters and their complex social network.

SNOOPY’S DOGHOUSE first aPPearanCe

09/04/1951

enerally located in Charlie Brown’s backyard, Snoopy’s Doghouse is his home, his sanctuary,

his place of rest, and his primary mode of transportation, among myriad other things. The interior houses Snoopy’s modern art collection and his personal library, a rec room, a guest room, and a cedar closet, and can comfortably hold a beagle, several kids, and a flock of small birds. Snoopy’s Doghouse is durable, but not indestructible. A giant icicle, a housefire, and the Cat Next Door are among the catastrophes that destroy his home over the years, but you can’t keep a good

dog down, and Snoopy is always quick to rebuild his sanctuary. Ironically, Charles Schulz noted that many of the

1

most memorable characters and locales in Peanuts were never seen in the strip. “We can’t [see the inside of Snoopy’s doghouse]. It’s too fantastic. No one could draw what we’ve said is down there. Also, Snoopy sits on the doghouse writing novels on his typewriter. If you look at the doghouse from a threequarters view, the typewriter is going to fall off. But from the side, you can accept it. And you never see anything in the background; if you did, it would become too real, and then you no longer could have a dog typing out a novel.”

time for Sally to compose a detailed wish list

and finally to get around to writing thank-you cards for gifts that she received the previous year. It’s a time for Christmas pageants and memorizing lines. It’s a time for Snoopy to decorate his doghouse and dress up as Santa Claus. And it’s a time for Charlie Brown and Linus to discuss theology and the true meaning of Christmas. Most of all, it’s a time for friends and family.

Charlie Brown always found Christmas to be a bittersweet holiday, as did Charles Schulz. “To me Christmas is a lonesome season, and I try to put this over quite often in my strips. Christmas and a lot of holidays bring out the loneliness in us because we never seem to be able to come up to the joy the magazines tell us we’re supposed to have. They show us illustrations of homes with packages and trees, and people smiling, but in real life it’s never quite that way. And holidays bring out sadness. This is why Charlie Brown said he hated Valentine’s Day so much. He said he knows that nobody likes him and he doesn’t see why we have a holiday to emphasize it.”

SCHROEDER M

uch like his idol, Beethoven, Schroeder develops his love of the piano from childhood and devotes his life to his music. Charlie Brown, Patty, and Shermy first meet Schroeder when he is a baby and watch in fascination as the precocious child shows an innate skill with his toy piano and an endless fascination with the life and music of Ludwig van Beethoven, whose birthday, he gladly reminds you, occurs on December 16. While his friends don’t share Schroeder’s enthusiasm for Beethoven, they appreciate his talent and dedication. Lucy, in particular, is very fond of Schroeder and spends countless hours perched beside his piano listening to music and speculating on what it would be like to be married to a famous musician. He tries his best to brush her off so that he can focus on his music, but deep down he enjoys her company—and knows that she might feed his piano to the Kite-Eating Tree if provoked. Snoopy, too, is a fan of Schroeder’s music and expresses his enjoyment through dance. When he’s not practicing his piano, Schroeder can be found on the baseball diamond, playing catcher for Charlie Brown’s team. The reliable backstop is a solid hitter and fielder and, more importantly, is always quick to offer words of encouragement to Charlie Brown, no matter how badly they’re losing. Whether it’s for his musical prowess

or his work behind home plate, it’s only a matter of time before Schroeder’s face ends up on a bubblegum card. “Schroeder? Well, in the first year I needed a baby,” laughed Charles Schulz, when asked about the pint-sized pianist with an appreciation for classic music. “My own children were very small. I’d just bought a toy piano for my daughter Meredith. He had to do something so I had him grow up quickly and play Beethoven.”

You can find this simple office- and academia-based item pretty much everywhere. (In fact, there’s literally been a punch-bowl full of paper clips in the Field Director’s office for years.) What can you do with this little piece of springy steel? A lot!

CREATE A COMPASS

Steel is ferromagnetic, and with a little work using a magnet and a bowl of water, you can improvise a compass— and, like any other compass, it’ll do double duty pinpointing other strong electromagnetic fields nearby.

BOOST A SIGNAL

The coaxial port on the back of a TV or radio can hook up to an antenna, but if you’re lacking one, bend a paper clip into an open simple shape (a triangle for example) and insert it into the pinhole in the port to boost reception! SHORT A CIRCUIT

Since steel paper clips conduct electricity, and can be used as a makeshift fuse, you can also use one to disable electrical systems—if you know which two points to connect. (Better brush up on those Cold-War-era missile schematics!)

PICK A LOCK

From padlocks to handcuffs, you’ll run into locks pretty often working for the Phoenix Foundation—and a paper clip can be a handy lockpick.

BRIDGE A BLOWN FUSE

Fuses are meant to blow out if the electric current in the circuit is too strong, so this isn’t exactly safe, but if you need to keep an electrical connection, a paper clip can do the trick. Just be cautious; paper clips don’t blow like fuses, so they’ll present a fire or shock hazard.

carbon ROD + BATTERY

BATTERY + sap

One of the brightest sources of light comes from electrical arcs—the same you find in welding (see item 107) and lightning strikes. In fact, this same principle is what led to the invention of light bulbs, but sometimes you need something a little brighter than what you’ll get from a regular fixture or flashlight. Luckily, a few modern parts can create a brilliant pre-modern electric light. ACQUIRE CARBON RODS The heart of an old arc-lamp is carbon—the same stuff that makes up graphite in pencil ‘lead,’ and certain welding rods. If you don’t have either of those, cut open the square plastic casing of a non-alkaline battery, remove a cylindrical cell, cut open the top, and pull the central carbon rod out (A). Repeat to get at one more. (You can also find them in nonalkaline batteries such as C- or D-cells.)

YOU'LL NEED • Kindling + Accelerant

PREPARE YOUR ELECTRODES Scrape the surfaces of the rods clean, then sharpen their tips to create a more focused point for electricity to conduct through. Get two lengths of copper wire, and wrap the end of each wire around the bottom of each rod (B).

You’re cold, you’re tired, and the weather is getting worse and worse while you wander the outdoors. Building a fire would help warm you up—but how can you start one without a lighter or matches? Here’s how.

MAKE SOME LIGHT Attach the ends of the wires to the positive and negative terminals of a large power source such as a lantern battery or 18-volt power-tool battery (C). Without touching them bare-handed, bring the two sharpened carbon rods close together and electricity will arc between them (D). Move them apart slightly, and the electrical current should continue to flow, creating a brilliant light (E). This puts out a lot of UV light, so it’ll hurt your eyes if you’re looking at it without eye protection (see item 97).

STEP 2 Find a small flexible piece of metal; you can use electrical wire or other conductive metal, such as the steel tweezers in a Swiss army knife.

STEP 4 Stay very close to your kindling and shield it and your battery from the elements. Touch both ends of your wire or foil to the battery terminals—you might want to have gloves because this can get hot— and touch the midpoint of your wire to the lightest kindling (E). The electrical current should heat up the wire until it can create a spark in the kindling (F).

STEP 3 Clean off the terminals on your battery (A) in order to get a good contact with the metal strip from Step 2.

STEP 5 Gently blow on the spark and carefully add more tinder until you have a flame (G), then add more fuel to create a full-fledged fire.

Even if you happen to find yourself at the mercy of a gang of terrorists outside an embassy, you have options. What do you have nearby to protect yourself? To fight back? To get to safety? Look for anything and everything—and then look again. An office can easily become an armory, if you just know where to look.

Ammonium nitrate from cold packs can be combined with salt substitute and sugar from the office kitchenette, to make a passable ersatz gunpowder.

And of course, gasoline still burns, even if it came from a lawnmower in the basement.

Heavy office objects such as photocopiers and safes can make great bulky obstacles to slow or block off your assailants.

You can still make your escape if you’re not entirely surrounded. Don’t have any rope to climb out with? One thing an office should have is extension cords, and braided together, they’ll do just fine as a rope for your egress.

Rich Schepis & Aaron Harvey In 1973, the original cast of Star Trek reunited to voice an animated series that continued that five-year mission to explore new worlds. This comprehensive authorized guide is filled with behind-the-scenes stories and never-before-seen original art.

INTRODUCTION It’s the show that would not die! The return of Star Trek was officially announced on March 2, 1973, as NBC announced Gene Roddenberry’s creation would be returning as an animated series to the network’s fall schedule as part of its Saturday morning lineup—four years and 34 days after The Original Series (TOS)’ final episode, “Turnabout Intruder,” aired. It truly was a turnabout for the franchise that needed a fan letter campaign to ensure a third season of the live-action show. The Animated Series (TAS), as it is known today, was just called Star Trek in 1973, which was fitting since the show reunited the architects of TOS— creator, producers, writers and actors. Roddenberry and TAS associate producer and story editor Dorothy Fontana were quick to clarify that while the new series was an animated version of Star Trek, it was not a “kiddie show,” but the Star Trek fans knew and loved.

Fans refused to allow Star Trek to die, despite the cancellation of TOS. The franchise actually saw its legion of fans grow in the four years between the end of TOS and the premiere of TAS. Several factors played a role in keeping Star Trek in the zeitgeist, including syndicated reruns at a

Rumors of an animated series swirled towards the end of TOS. Filmation founder Lou Scheimer approached Roddenberry several times and when Roddenberry finally relented, it was going to be Star Trek or nothing at all—“Star Trek is Star Trek,” the show’s creator is remembered as saying. “Scheimer had been wanting to do a Star Trek animated series,” TAS writer David Gerrold recalled, “but he wanted to do Star Trek Academy. He wanted to do it with kids or he wanted to do it with our cast as kids. Finally the deal was made one way or the other and Gene said, ‘No, it has to be the real Star Trek and with the real cast.’

William Simpson describes his audition for the role of Young Spock as surreal. First, instead of being given one or two scenes to tryout, he received the entire script instead. Also, Simpson was just starting to act when he received some rather confusing directions from Director Hal Sutherland.

The Vulcan city of ShiKahr as it appeared in Spock’s childhood

MISSION BRIEFING Who’s that Vulcan? Kirk and Spock return through the Guardian of Forever after visiting the dawn of Orion civilization when the pair receives a rude welcome—McCoy doesn’t know Spock. Kirk believes the Doctor to be joking and the trio beam back to the Enterprise where it’s revealed Scotty also does not know the Vulcan. The mystery deepens as Kirk now has an Andorian First Officer and records indicate the son of Sarek and Amanda died when he was seven years old. Kirk and Spock return to the planet where they learn Federation Historians decided to pass their time during the duo’s mission to Orion by peeking into Vulcan’s past—whoops. Spock explains his life originally was saved by a cousin who looked a lot like himself on the day he supposedly dies, leading Kirk to wonder if he had saved himself—which he did. Spock returns to Vulcan’s past to restore the timeline, because that never goes wrong. He arrives just in time to watch his younger self ridiculed by other children, which leads Sarek to apologize for his young Spock’s emotional outburst during the confrontation. Adult Spock introduces himself as a cousin, but Sarek senses something familiar—must be the family resemblance. It is time for Young Spock to decide whether he will choose the Vulcan or human way of life, with the former requiring a test of endurance in the desert. Young Spock sneaks away for a trial run, followed by his

pet sehlat, I-Chaya. Adult Spock tails them and arrives to witness the sehlat protect his younger self from a le-matya beast. The adult Spock delivers a neck pinch to incapacitate the creature and I-Chaya collapses from its wounds, which appear life threatening. I-Chaya is too big to move back to the city, so logic dictates Young Spock seek a healer and bring him back to the sehlat. Sadly, Young Spock’s human behavior and reputation precede him and he must take time to convince the Healer he is telling the truth, time that might have been enough to save his pet. Unfortunately, the Healder can do nothing but give I-Chaya a peaceful death, which Young Spock allows. The two Spock’s return home, and the younger one apologizes to Sarek for any trouble he caused and informs his father he chooses the Vulcan way. Adult Spock returns through the Guardian and has restored the timeline with one exception, I-Chaya did not die before.

“I’ll admit, really at that age, I didn’t know much about Star Trek so I don’t know what I said. [Sutherland] went on to tell me, ‘Spock doesn’t talk with much emotion,’ so read the lines with (I believe he used stilted, which was a little bit advanced). So I started reading the lines more matter-of-factly, straight forward, and he said, ‘yeah, that’s good, that’s good, keep going.’ In the back of my mind I’m thinking, ‘this is just bad acting.’ I read all the lines marked Young Spock and then he said, ‘thank you very much’ and [my mother and I] left.”

THE LIFE OF SPOCK “Why go back to Spock’s past?” Dorothy Fontana asked rhetorically. “Simple: we could, visually. And personally, it was a look into an area of his life we knew little about, but which we could show so well. How did Spock get to be Spock as we knew him? What were the things in the society, in his family, in himself that shaped him? None of those things had been established, except for the few presented in [TOS] episodes, so I had a canvas on which I could lay out those new elements.” “Yesteryear,” which was the Associate Producer’s only script she wrote for The Animated Series (TAS), was a sequel to Fontana TOS-penned episode, “Journey to Babel.” The visual elements which Fontana referred included showing Spock’s pet sehlat mention in “Journey to Babel” convincingly, as well as the isolated Vulcan desert Young Spock was required to cross.

■■Billy Simpson

Simpson found out he won the part but never returned to Filmation Studios to record the episode. Sutherland had decided to use his audition recording—hence him being given the entire script.

Nine-year-old Billy Simpson was chosen to be the voice of Young Spock.

“I’m most fond of ‘Yesteryear,’ because of all the Vulcan/Spock/Spock’s childhood elements I could put in that could never have been done on [TOS],” Fontana explained. “I did not consider writing any others. I liked how “Yesteryear” came out, the story it told, the emotions it touched (for Spock and the audience), and I was very happy with it.”

HOW SHARPER THAN A SERPENT’S TOOTH

- Captain Kirk

Written by Russell Bates, David Wise Directed by Bill Reed

■■Kukulkan’s City

An ancient Earth-like city that appears to be one gigantic riddle

MISSION BRIEFING

■ GUEST CHARACTERS Voiced by James Doohan Arex Kukulkan Ensign Walking Bear

■ CAPTAIN’S LOG

STARDATE 6063.4 “The Enterprise is tracing the origin of a mysterious alien space probe. It approached the Federation home worlds, made a scan of Earth’s system and then signaled outward into space. Before it could be intercepted, the probe self-destructed. We are following a trail of disrupted matter left by the probe’s highly advanced propulsion system. Thus far, the trail has not intercepted any inhabited star systems.”

Trapped! The Enterprise has been ensnared within a globular force field generated by an alien ship they encountered coming from the same trajectory as the probe. There they come face-to-face with the Mayan God Kukulkan, who is angered humanity has forgotten him. However, since he considers himself to be a benevolent deity, he gives the Enterprise crew a chance to make amends, with the caveat that failure will result in mankind’s demise. (So much for benevolence.) Kirk, McCoy, Scotty and Ensign Walking Bear are taken from the Enterprise and transported to the alien ship. McCoy notes Kukulkan allowed him to keep his medical kit, although he questions its usefulness. Kukulkan challenges the officers to discover the purpose of his bestowment of knowledge on primitive humans and transports them to what appears to be an ancient Mesoamerican city. Meanwhile on the Enterprise, the crew wants to search for the captain and others, but Spock reminds them their first priority is freeing the ship and themselves first. The quartet solves Kukulkan’s riddle, and he then takes them to his menagerie. He explains these caged animals keep him company and he even boasts he has tamed one of the most dangerous creatures in the galaxy—a Capellan power-cat, capable of emitting a charge of 2000 volts. The Enterprise

shatters the force field and attacks Kukulkan’s ship. Kirk and McCoy use Spock’s distraction to create their own—the release of the Capellan power-cat, which immediately squares off with Kukulkan. Kirk uses a tranquilizer from McCoy’s med kit to reduce the cat’s behavior to that of a kitten. (How’s that for usefulness?) Kirk explains to Kukulkan humanity needs to fail or succeed on its own. The deity agrees to let the Enterprise go on its way, understanding it can teach humanity nothing more. Musing Kukulkan was a lonely being, Kirk is disappointed by the loss of the knowledge the entity could have shared. Bones recalls a quote from Shakespeare—“How sharper than a serpent’s tooth to have a thankless child.” Kirk orders the Enterprise to Starbase 21 at warp two, leaving the system having solved the mystery of the probe and filling in a blank from Earth’s past.

AND THE EMMY GOES TO ... The Animated Series (TAS) earned Star Trek its first Emmy Award for Outstanding Children’s Program of the 1974-75 season. “How Sharper Than a Serpent’s Tooth” was the episode submitted. It remains the franchise’s lone non-technical or production Emmy. “It just blows my mind,” Wise said of the episode securing the award. Bates and Wise also won the 1975 Peabody Award for the episode.

TAG TEAM WRITERS “Maybe the problem is I’m just not coming up with ideas that are good for animation,” David Wise recalled Russell Bates telling him. “I told [Russell] to take advantage of the visual stuff that you could never take advantage of on The Original Series (TOS).” Struggling to hook Dorothy Fontana and Gene Roddenberry after Fontana asked him to write an episode of TAS, Bates recruited Wise, who had done animated storytelling in the past, to join him in writing the episode. “We went up to Dorothy’s office and pitched her the story,” Wise explained. “What was becoming painfully apparent to me from Dorothy’s reaction, she was looking for him to write from his experiences as a Native American, something only he could uniquely write.”

Wise keyed in on Erich Von Daniken’s book Chariots of the Gods, which proposed that Earth’s past legends were actually aliens from outer space. “What if an alien came and sowed the seeds of knowledge all over the world? At that point it was pretty much a fifty-fifty collaboration.”

THE FUTURE DOES NOT SEE COLOR, GENDER OR RACE Diversity has always been a staple of Star Trek. Already featuring a command crew of men and women, Africans, Japanese and Russians on the bridge of the Enterprise, TAS broke new ground with the inclusion of Ensign Walking Bear as helmsman—the Enterprise’s first Native American crew member. “Walking Bear was a character from the first TOS script Bates wrote, ‘Parasites,’ that wasn’t used.” Wise stated. “Russell was a Kiowa, but we wanted to go with a tribe everyone knew, so Russell made him a Comanche. He was thinking practically since it was a children’s show.”

character’s sense of strength coupled with the never-ending swell of support offered to her by the cast and crew—both on and off stage—allowed Settle, she says, to also find a sense of personal empowerment. Even the simple act of putting on Lutz’s beard was transformative and gave Settle a jolt of inner strength, but not in the beginning. She explains, saying, “It’s funny because when I first put [the beard] on, I wanted to hide behind it, that very first day . . . And Hugh came to find me and he goes, ‘No, no, no, no, no. You don’t get to hide. Not after all this time.’ And he gave me a big hug and we started crying. . . . And then, by the time we started shooting, the beard became the thing that gave Lettie her grit and strength.” Settle soon found herself strutting around the set as Lutz, her dazzling eye makeup projecting a sense of fierceness, and her beard, bold and eye-catching, projecting a sense of pride. Now, Settle says, “People don’t know who I am without the beard.”

(top and above) Despite this being such a complex shoot, we tried to keep things light.

n 1987, Brian Bosworth was the Jim McMahon of college football: brash, colorful, outspoken, and a very good player on a very good Oklahoma Sooners team. He was a two-time Butkus Award winner as the best linebacker in college football, and he had just been drafted by our hometown Seattle Seahawks. But Brian said he wouldn’t play for the Seahawks, so with his NFL future uncertain, we weren’t sure how to reach him. We ended up taking a shot in the dark and wrote him a letter addressed to the University of Oklahoma’s athletic department. A week later, we received a call from his agent, Gary Wichard, who was familiar with our posters and interested in working with us. Gary said that, despite the public posturing around the draft, Brian would definitely sign with Seattle, and we could factor the team into a poster idea. Since Brian was already known as “the Boz,” we easily chose a Wizard of Oz theme. We watched the movie and made notes on the world of Oz, and worked out the production design with Mike Dillon of Dillon Works!, a local design and fabrication company: a yellow-brick road, with the downtown Seattle skyline and the Seahawks’ Kingdome home stadium in the background. This was the most elaborate and expensive set we had ever made. Dillon Works did an amazing job with the set and the costumes. Our in-house artist, Chuck Doyle, wore the Cowardly Lion outfit, and our favorite radio personalities, Gary Crowe and Mike West from Seattle’s KXRX 96.5 FM, were the Scarecrow and the Tin Man, and they promoted the poster on the air. Speaking of our Scarecrow, we had Gary stand in a hidden hole in the yellowbrick road so that only his top half is visible, with the rest of his body hidden under the set and a pair of empty pants giving the illusion that Brian has stomped his legs flat. We came up with There’s No Place Like Dome while we were setting up, and had someone write it on one of the background rocks. For Dorothy, we cast Ava Fabian, who had recently been Playboy magazine’s Playmate of the Month for August 1986. She not only made a great Dorothy but also helped attract a lot of attention: We invited a bunch of sports reporters to cover the poster shoot, mentioning Ava’s participation, and ended up with a packed set. Ava also signed copies of the posters for us at sporting goods trade shows, drawing longer lines than the shoe companies and equipment manufacturers that brought in big-name athletes. Brian’s agent came up with a creative way for Brian to wear his college No. 44, since NFL uniform rules at the time did not allow linebackers to wear numbers in the 40s: Invent a new position called monster defensive back. As an afterthought, we enlisted our friends’ children as his Bozkins, complete with Brian’s signature shades and Mohawk hairdo with stripes on the side of their heads. (It’s tough to see, but Toto the dog also has a Mohawk!)

IN 134 RIDE A SKIRT

Whether you’re a commuter or just a stylish person, riding in a skirt or dress doesn’t have to mean risking indecent exposure. LEG IT Opaque leggings or bike shorts are a great modesty protector—and just about de rigeur if you’re wearing a wrap skirt, because it will misbehave. They just always do.

Make a skirt bikeready with the penny-trick knot

KNOT IT Long, flowing skirts can get caught in your chain or just be too fussy to ride in. To get the excess fabric out of the way, just gather it up offcenter at one hip, and tie in a knot. WEIGHT IT A trick known, somewhat oddly, as the “penny in yo’ pants” weights your skirt down and turns it into temporary bloomers to avoid wardrobe malfunctions. Just press a coin into both layers of your skirt from the back, then secure it in front with a rubber band. Voilà, flash-free riding!

136 COMMUTE CLEANLY

Keeping yourself clean is one of the biggest challenges to commuting, and a lot of people avoid riding because they are uncomfortable changing clothes at work or they haven’t figured out a way to not smell like a cyclist. In the best-case scenario, you work for a progressive company that has facilities available for commuters like you, where you can take a shower and change clothes. But even if you don’t have a shower available, you can still easily clean up in a regular bathroom. Avoid the temptation of taking a field bath in the sink, which usually just succeeds in getting you, your clothes, and a good bit of the floor soaking wet. You aren’t really scrubbing away the dirt and sweat of the commute that way.

FOR SUCCESS 137 DRESS

We’ve all seen those dedicated office workers who bike to work in full spandex, with their suits, proper shoes, and the rest of all their workwear stuffed in a messenger bag for a quick, awkward change in the restroom. We admire these road warriors, but for most workplaces, and most commutes, there’s an easier way. As commuter cycling becomes more popular, more and more of the outdoor clothing lines are making stylish shirts, pants, jackets, and even skirts and dresses specifically tailored to the commuter cyclist. Features vary, but generally you’ll find strong pockets that wil allow you to carry a couple of energy bars, as well as any other essentials, such as a wallet, phone, spare tubes, or even tools. The fabric of commuter clothing will help keep you dry as it wicks sweat away from your skin. And you roll up ready for work, not looking or smelling like you’ve just finished a tough ride.

A BIKE 135 RIDE IN HEELS

Pedalling in high heels looks sketchy, but it’s actually surprisingly comfortable and relatively safe. Here’s how to do it right. THE RIGHT SHOES The ideal heels for cycling have a relatively thin sole so that you can feel the pedal (no platforms or wedges!). Be sure that the sole isn’t too slippery, however—the grippier the better. And don’t try this in your Manolos—cycling does tend to scuff up the inner side and heels of your shoes unless you’re very, very careful. ON THE BALL Pedal with the ball of your foot, pressing your weight into it to make your stroke. If you’ve ever used clipless pedals, you’ll find it feels surprisingly similar. PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN While in motion, heels feel about the same as any other shoe. It’s when you come to a stop at a light or stop sign that you need to

If you’re getting into working on your drive train, you’ll want to know how to remove and install a cassette, a crucial part of your gearing. The cassette is a collection of cogs mounted onto splines on the freewheel hub of your bike’s rear wheel. It’s held in place by a lock ring.

be mindful. If you need to put your foot down to steady yourself, be careful of uneven pavement, as a wobbly ankle could lead to injury.

MAINTAIN

THE CASSETTE 244 REMOVE

Your best option is to use cycling wipes. Your local bike shop probably sells them. If not, they’re a snap to find on the Internet. These are single-use wipes that work miracles for cleaning up after exerting yourself on your commute, which is especially welcome in those hot summer months. Simply scrub yourself clean from head to toe and dispose of the wipes. You’ll be clean enough to work, and they dry rapidly, so you don’t have to carry a bulky towel with you. There’s also nothing that says you can’t steal your child’s baby wipes or use makeup removing sheets, though these two tend to be more perfumed. A little preparation on your part really does make commuting by bike a great option.

A lot is literally riding on the tight installation of your cassette, so it takes a bit of effort to remove it. You’ll need a chain whip (a tool that grips the cogs and keeps them from turning while you are unlocking the ring and hub), an adjustable wrench, and a key for the lock ring.

STEP 1 Remove the rear wheel. Access the cassette by taking off the quick-release skewer nut, then threading the key onto the lock ring. Re-insert the skewer nut to hold the lock ring key in place.

STEP 2 Use the chain whip on one of the cogs to hold the cassette in place so that it doesn’t turn as you remove the lock ring. Use your adjustable wrench to grab the edges of the lock ring key, then turn counterclockwise to loosen the lock ring. Once it’s loosened, remove the quick-release nut and the lock ring.

STEP 3 Slide the cassette off the splines of the free hub, threading. a zip tie through it to hold it together. If you do a lot of flat riding, you may find your cassette is good except for the smallest cogs, which give the most resistance. Likewise, if you love to climb, you’ll find that the larger cogs that give you an easier spin have more wear. Most people replace their entire cassette, but an old one is a handy backup to keep just in case.

LIFESTYLE

CASSETTES 245 UNDERSTAND

Gearing on bikes can be a little confusing. A lot of riders, especially those with older bikes, want or expect cassette gearing to remain the same forever, and they get frustrated when they find out that a particular cog set isn’t available any longer. Another common issue is people who want to add more gears to a particular cassette they like. It can be hard to explain to them why they can only use a 9-speed or a 10-speed cassette. Simply put, the free hub on your rear wheel determines what brands and what cassette arrangements are compatible for that wheel set.

One popular brand, for instance, allows for several different cassettes to be mounted on their brand’s main hub. Spacers allow for fewer or more cogs on the cassettes. However, if you are changing cassette brands or you are buying new wheels, you need to know beforehand if your cassette is compatible with that hub or not. A lot of times, the bike and its components are perfectly fine. But to modernize things, you’ll need to upgrade or update your wheel set in order to get the cassette you really want.

ULTIMATE SURVIVAL

HACKS

Disaster • wilderness • off the grid

heroes

Every survival guide starts by telling you to be prepared— including this one. But can you really prepare for any crisis, catastrophe, or inconvenience? Do your best, and if your best fails you—improvise. That’s the genius of this book. If all you have to hand is a pointy stick, a handful of acorns, and some pocket lint, you’re on your way to a survival strategy. Add some nice rocks, a pocket knife, and some string and you’re looking good.

550 cord

2 START A FIRE For those who burn the ends of 550 cord (a great way to keep it from unraveling), you already know that 550 cord is sort of flammable. Whether your cord is made from nylon or polyester, either of these plastics will burn once they get hot enough. But for one enterprising company, “sort of flammable” wasn’t good enough. There’s a product on the market called 550 FireCord, which has an additional red colored strand inside. This can be stripped from a cut piece of cordage to yield flammable tinder or left in place to help a strand of 550 burn even better. For best results, light your cord with an open flame like a lighter or a match.

3 SET UP A TROTLINE  Need to some catch fish? Use a trotline for survival fishing! Tie a piece of 550 cord so that it is securely anchored across a waterway, above or below the water. Use existing shrubs or drive stakes into the mud for land anchors. Use rocks and floats out in the water for aquatic anchors. From the 550 line, you can drop multiple hooks on regular fishing line to multiply your chances of making a catch. And for those who need to use this technique under the radar, set every part of the trotline so that it stays below the water.

6 BAFFLE THE BEARS ‚ One great use for 550 cord is bear bagging. In backcountry areas with bruins and other animals that want your food, hanging it in a tree downwind of camp will keep it out of reach and reduce nighttime animal prowlers around your tent. To hang your bag of food, tie a rock to the end of 100 feet (30 m ) of 550 cord and lob the rock over a tree branch. Untie the rock and tie on your food sack. Hoist the bag up and tie it to a different tree so that it hangs at least 12 feet (3.5 m) off the ground, 5 feet (1.5 m) down from the branch and 5 feet (1.5 m) from the trunk.

5 GO FISH ‚ Short bits of 550 cord may seem like trash, but they can become surprisingly nice fishing lures with just a little bit of work (and a sharp hook). By sliding part of the outer jacket down and cutting it off, you’ll expose more of the white inner strands on this remarkable rope. Slide the shank of a fish hook up through those strands until the eye emerges, then melt the end of the cord with a lighter. Shred the exposed white strands and your lure is ready for the water. And if you’re short on fishing line, remove a long inner strand of 550 for your fishing line.

550 cord

1 GET THE BOOT Often called paracord, 550 cord is a tough yet slender line that was originally used in WW II for parachutes! Once on the ground, creative war fighters found hundreds of uses for the sturdy cordage, including bootlaces. Cotton and leather boot laces were no match for cord with a 550-pound breaking strength, then or now. You can also take this cord out of your boots and cut off a few short sections, using the short ones to strategically re-tie your boots. This gives you several feet of available cord, and your boots stay on!

4 CREATE SURVIVAL SNARES Setting snares to catch game animals definitely takes a lot of practice, but it’s also a great way to maximize your chances of catching something to eat in an emergency. You can use complete 550 cord (or strands from it) to make a wide range of trap components and snare lines, with just a little research and practice. And it you’re dealing with an animal that can chew through the cord (virtually all mammals, for example), then use the 550 to make a lethal trap—it’s more humane, and your quarry won’t have time to chew the line.

8 CUT ZIP TIES  You’ve been kidnapped and bound with zip ties! It’s a good thing that your 550 cord boot laces can also be put to good use as a saw. Zip ties can be cut by aggressively working 550 cord across them. To make your escape, remove your 550 laces, and tie them together with a large loop on each end. Thread the cord through one zip tie. Place each foot in one of the cord loops, and move your feet like you’re peddling a bike. This will saw the cord back and forth on the zip tie, heating the plastic to its melting point, and eventually breaking through the restraint. 7 MAKE STRAPS, BELTS, AND MORE „ 550 cord bracelets have become a common item in the outdoor skills community, but you can make more than ornaments if you have some cord and some weaving skills. Simple braiding and plaiting techniques can turn a roll of this cord into belts, straps, collars, and other useful items. And if you can knit or crochet, go nuts with this durable and flexible cordage material! People have woven sandals from this cord, even bikini tops. Your creativity and imagination are the only real limits.

A  STRAIGHT

A straight spine with an upward curving edge that rises to the spine to form a semi-sharp point.

Bushcrafting; Kitchen tasks; Learning sharpening techniques.

Very strong; Easily batoned through wood; Easy to apply force to spine with fingers or palm.

Not ideal for piercing tasks; Not enough belly for skinning.

B  DROP POINT

A favorite of hunters, the drop point features a slight downward curve to the spine to form a lowered, or “dropped,” point.

Field dressing and skinning; Everyday carry (EDC).

Strong point retains a bit of belly for skinning; Best for gutting animals, as the point angles away from organs.

With a tip less sharp than those of other profiles, it’s not a great piercing blade.

C  TRAILING

This blade’s spine curves upward, and a trailing point provides a long, curved edge for slicing.

Skinning and caping animals; Filleting fish.

Very sharp point; Lots of belly; Design gives lightweight knives additional length to the cutting edge.

Weak point; Difficult to get in and out of a sheath.

D  CLIP POINT

The classic Bowie knife profile. A straight spine drops in a slight angle or concave curve to meet the tip, as if the spine were clipped off.

Skinning and caping animals; Filleting fish.

Very controllable sharp point; Decent belly; Excels at piercing.

If the clip begins too far from the tip, the point of the blade can be weak.

E  SPEAR POINT

A symmetrical profile with a spine that forms the centerline of the blade. Can be sharpened on one or both sides.

Piercing and thrusting; Throwing knives.

Very sharp tip; Can have a double cutting surface.

Not useful for non-fighting tasks.

F  SPEY POINT

A defined, sudden downward curve to the spine that meets a curving, upswept edge. Commonly found on trapperstyle pocketknives.

Traditionally used for castrating farm animals.

Easily sharpened; Safe to use when a sharp point isn’t needed.

That lack of a sharp point limits piercing ability; Often a short blade.

G  LEAF

This hybrid between a drop point and a spear point features a less aggressive downward slope to the spine with a more acute point.

Fine cutting that requires a sharp point; EDC; Selfdefense.

Easy to carry, as most leaf point blades are short.

Thin point can be weaker than that of other profiles.

H  SHEEPSFOOT

A straight spine curves downward to meet a completely straight edge, with no sharp piercing tip.

Rescue work; Use on inflatable boats; Trimming hooves of small livestock.

Blunt tip can be very thick and strong; Very controllable edge; Easy to sharpen.

With no sharp tip, not useful for piercing tasks.

I  WHARNCLIFFE

Similar to a sheepsfoot, with a downward curve or angle to the spine that starts closer to the handle of the knife.

Rescue work; Selfdefense; Utility tasks.

Sharp piercing tip; Strong, robust blade often built with thick blade stock.

No belly for skinning tasks.

J  HAWKBILL

Shaped like a claw or talon—or a hawk’s bill—the hawkbill profile has a sharply concave spine and cutting edge that meet at a downward point.

Utility work, such as cutting carpet and linoleum; Selfdefense.

Cutting webbing, heavy cordage and lines; Sharp, inwardly curved tip is great for making long cuts.

No piercing ability; Little utility for hunting and fishing.

K  TANTO

Thick, with a straight edge that takes a sudden, upward, uncurved angle near the blade tip to meet the spine at a straight or slightly convex angle.

Self-defense; EDC; General utility tasks.

Extremely strong and sharp tip; Robust blade.

Tricky to sharpen; No belly for skinning.

Fifty Visionary Artists, Scientists, Poets, Makers, & Dreamers Who Changed the Way We See Our World

In 2016 and 2017, the Exploratorium partnered with the A.M. Qattan Foundation to launch a hands-on Science Studio in Ramallah—the first of its kind in Palestine. This project involved two visits to San Francisco by a group of emerging exhibit developers, and five trips to Palestine for master planning workshops, exhibit ideation, rapid prototyping, and mentoring on studio set-up and shop tool use.

SAJA AMRO

Science educator and exhibit designer in Ramallah, Palestine.

Originally trained as an architect, Saja now builds exhibitions that tour around Palestine. During her residency, she immersed herself in exhibit development, science communication, and fabrication. Today, she is especially interested in extracting science and art from their local context and transforming them. Before my first workshop, I didn’t know anything about exhibit development or the Exploratorium. I had no practical experience using machines, wood, metal, materials, whatever. And I was afraid of them. Even in the workshop I thought, that’s not for me. But then I saw how everyone was using those things without being afraid of them, and the results are awesome. So I thought why not? This experience was really life changing. It was full of ups and downs. But each time I was learning something else, something new, and growing and

maturing. And I definitely can say frankly that this experience was life changing to me. My first residency was working with the Studio for Public Spaces. You’re creating large-scale outdoor exhibits, not tabletops and indoor experiences. And I enjoyed it so much. I also found out that I can work directly with the audience, the visitors, with people, and create activities for them. It’s not only about designing and building, it’s also about speaking to your audience and doing something directly with them. The exhibit development process is humancentered. Your designs should be tested on people, really soon after you have your first or second prototype, so you can get feedback. At the Science Studio, we are still working as if we’re at the Exploratorium. But we’re not, so a lot of things need to shift. We still ideate, prototype, evaluate. We make, show, and tell all the time and then we fabricate and we make our exhibitions. We use that sequence but now we started adding to it,

This innovative and inspirational book invites the reader to join more than 50 artists, musicians, scientists, and innovators in a wonderfully playful, insightful, and sometimes incredibly moving journey. Learn how they think and how you, too, can harness your powers of observation, inquiry, and engagement to be more creative, successful, and happy in life—and maybe even change the world while you’re at it.

because we know there’s something missing, because these are two different communities, two different contexts. It’s not the same. But our starting point was the Exploratorium method, the Exploratorium mentality—of teamwork, being open, having a playful mindset, accepting play at work, developing ideas together. And there is a place for everyone. It’s not a competition. We all have a place on the floor and all of our exhibits are developing, and will always be developing. There is no end product. We’re having conversations all the time about the themes of the exhibitions we create. Our themes are from the team’s interests and what we like to do or build. But we also think that the themes need to be coming from the community itself, because we are in a country with lots and lots of problems on all sides. Environmental, social, we have the Occupation, we have unemployment. It’s really tough here. We can do exhibits about mathematics and science and astronomy, but we need to dig deeper and learn more about what the community wants to learn about. We need to empathize with them more. We’re also trying to work with people in the arts because artists, they do dig deeper, working on projects based on what they observe in the community. So we want to try to develop exhibits with artists. One of the things that we’re trying to do is to develop written materials in Arabic as well, because exhibit

development does not exist in Arabic. You read the word ideation. We invented one for it in Arabic… also the word for tinkering. So we’re using our own terms. We’re trying to develop our ideation methods as well. We just finished our exhibition. It’s called Motion and Stillness. The experiences in the exhibition use your whole body to help explain physics. We presented it in June and now it’s traveling So I’ve been working to different places.

The special exhibition Strandbeest: The Dream Machines of Theo Jansen in 2016. featured enormous kinetic sculptures called strandbeests—“beach animals” in Dutch—that mesmerized with their eerily lifelike motion. Constructed largely of PVC tubing and equipped with sensory organs, these amazing beests walked a wandering, line between art and engineering, mechanics and biology.

THEO JANSEN Dutch artist whose kinetic strandbeesten are wonders of art, engineering, and evolutionary theory.

Jansen studied physics at Delft University of Technology, before dedicating himself to the creation and evolution of his “beach beast” kinetic sculptures. He describes himself as very old-fashioned, working as people might have 10,000 years ago before there was any distinction between art and science. The Exploratorium is for me a very impressive museum. I’ve never seen so many interesting educational props. To me it is not only a science museum, because there are also a lot of artists involved with curious machines. That’s why I was very interested to show my work there. Since 1990, I’ve tried to make new forms of life. The strandbeests are skeletons that live on beaches. They don’t have to eat, because they get their energy from the wind. Over the years there has been a sort of evolution process where the animal survive better and better the circumstances on the beach, like the storms and the wind and the sand and the water. This evolutionary process will go on in the future until I leave the planet one day, and then I hope these animals can survive on their own. These tubes, they never want to do what I want to do. They have their own will, it seems. I might wake up with an ingenious idea in the morning and then, during the 46

day, confront this idea with the tubes and they want something else. They force me to go another way and leave my own brains behind to follow their rules. And the next day I wake up with a new idea based on my experience with the tubes from the day before. The path is very capricious and unpredictable. In the end, I’m surprised myself at how beautiful these animals become during the process. I wasn’t really aiming for beauty but it seems like if you follow the law of the tubes… it is just like real evolution.

The Future Then The Editors of Popular Science

THE FUTURE THEN

For 145 years, Popular Science has captured our imaginations with its forecasts of what the future holds in store. With more than 500 retro covers and analyses of how their wacky predictions panned out, The Future Then functions as a time capsule of all our wildest technological dreams­— whether or not they’ve come true.

ART IS T PROFILE

NORMAN ROCKWELL Without question, the best-known painter to put brush to canvas for the face of Popular Science was Norman Rockwell. After beginning art classes and painting covers for a number of youth magazines throughout his teenage years, Rockwell landed his first piece of cover art on the front of a real magazine—the Saturday Evening Post—in 1916, at the ripe old age of 22. During the next 60 years, Rockwell would paint for a number of publications, with works gracing the cover of the Post hundreds of times. While Rockwell was not widely respected by so-called serious art critics—people who would occasionally refer to Rockwell as an illustrator in the pejorative sense rather than as a true artist (not that it bothered him)—his work earned great appreciation among the broader American populace. His ability to give regular folks a glimpse of their own lives through his rosy lens endeared him to many.

Innovation FOR 142 YEARS

Rockwell’s paintings largely focused on elevating what might be dismissed as the banalities of everyday smalltown America in an often sentimental, sometimes even humorous, way. His work for Popular Science during the 1920s was no exception. For instance, Perpetual Motion, his most famous work to appear in the periodical, depicts an inventor showing off his attempt at building a perpetual motion machine, scratching his head, as if he himself is unsure of whether it will work—or why it does, if it does. Another shows an older gentleman in his study, welding a kettle while a curious kitten watches over his shoulder.

Top, this April 1921 cover shows a new soldering torch equipped with barrels for not one but two types of fuel. The same year saw the invention of the first electric soldering iron—a true breakthrough for early DIY types. At right, the magazine devoted its October 1920 issue to innovation and used the cover to poke fun at an old mechanical impossibility that rears its head to dupe the masses every so often: a machine works indefinitely without needing power. Popular Science recreated the classic cover with DIY enthusiast and actor Nick Offerman on its May 2014 cover.

December • Edgar F. Wittmack • An air-propelled car out for a joyride— presumably at 80 miles an hour (130 km/h), as the cover article boasts.

January • Edgar F. Wittmack • A hypothetical “merry-go-round” power plant makes wind power in New Jersey.

DID IT HAPPEN? Not really. Airboats are a thing, but the fan-powered car? Not so much, beyond a few truly experimental vehicles such as this. There is banned racing technology that uses fans to force a racecar downward (most notably American Jim Hall’s totally rad Chapparel 2J, released in 1970 and forbidden from the track the same year), but that’s about it.

DID IT HAPPEN? Kind of. Power companies poured money into an experimental cylinder utilizing the Magnus effect—the notion that wind creates force perpendicular to the direction it blows—but the plant never materialized. Even so, ships powered by “rotor sails” demonstrated proof of concept in the 1920s, some modern shipbuilders have revived the idea to reduce reliance on fossil fuels, and engineers have written papers about building wind farms with the cylinders in the future. So stay tuned.

May (right) • Edgar F. Wittmack • Dr. J. A. Purves’s dynasphere—“the high-speed vehicle of the future.”

DID IT HAPPEN? Prototypes, yes. Otherwise, no. While inventor J. A. Purves did make a few of these daredevil hoops (YouTube it, trust us), it turns out that a giant iron wheel steered by tilting is not the most practical form of transportation. Go figure. 68

The Future Then

1970s

you could carry down the street. In 1973, that changed. Under US engineer and “father of the cell phone” Martin Cooper, Motorola engineers developed the first truly mobile phone—one giant (by today’s standards) brick of a communications device. He announced his invention by demonstrating it for a journalist: He powered on the device, walked down the street, and dialed up Joel Engel—an engineer from AT&T who was working on a similar idea—just to let him know that he was calling him from a cell phone. THE F-14, CONCORDE, AND THE GOSSAMER CONDOR One of the more famous fighter jets in popular culture is the Grumman F-14 Tomcat, which first took to the skies in December 1970. Most people know it as the plane from Top Gun, and its reallife applications aren’t so far off from that depiction. It saw action as an air-to-air fighter, with some air-to-ground abilities added before its retirement in the mid-2000s. Beyond fighter jets, a small fleet of Concordes—supersonic passenger jets—entered commercial service in 1976, zipping wealthy passengers across the Atlantic in half the time it took a standard passenger jet. Concorde was in service for 27 years until a crash in 2000 killed everyone on board. The 1970s also brought a feat centuries in the making: human-powered flight. Designed by Americans Paul MacCready and Peter Lissaman and piloted by Bryan Allen, the Gossamer Condor—a big, pedal-powered hang glider—won the first Kremer Prize for person-propelled aircraft. LUCY ON THE SLOPE WITH SCIENCE Humanity got one more clue to its origins when, in 1974, US paleoanthropologist Donald Johanson decided to take a third look at a small gully near the Awash River in Ethiopia. When he found a small fragment from an arm bone on one slope, he and a graduate student, Tom Gray, turned up the intensity and found more and more pieces—all of which appeared to come from the same organism. Johanson’s finding turned out to be a female from the species Australopithecus afarensis—a likely ancestor of ours, dating back more than 3 million years. Named Lucy after the Beatles’ “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” she had a small skull and walked upright, giving credence to evolutionary theories that propose walking upright on two feet came before human brain growth. After taking the bones to Cleveland for reconstruction, Johanson returned Lucy to Ethiopia, where she still “lives”—in a safe in the National Museum of Ethiopia.

spreads through your bloodstream and can cause bleeding from your mouth or rectum, shock, and even gangrene of your fingers or toes. Still not convinced? How about the pneumonic plague, which helps you remember large chunks of information with fun acronyms? No, no, actually it primarily affects lungs, and is often mistaken for a really severe case of pneumonia. While its symptoms may sound the least dramatic, this one is actually the most fatal form, and needs to be treated as soon as possible. Come to think of it, there’s not really a “good” plague to catch. The plague is not an absolute death sentence, but . . . it ain’t great. Without treatment, about 50 to 90 percent of infected people will die. With modern treatment, that number is reduced to a much-betterbut-still-not-all-that-comforting 15 percent.

hat really gets us excited these days is those diseases that don’t just kill people . . . they change the very course of history. And the plague is just such a disease. Just how scary was the plague? It’s so scary that “the plague” isn’t a scary enough name; we started to call it “The Black Death,” right around the time it wiped out half of Europe. Since the very first plague bacteria infected its first human host, this disease has wreaked absolute havoc on our species. Or at least it did right up until the discovery of antibiotics blunted a bit of the threat. Nonetheless, it has earned itself a place in the hall of fame of history-altering illnesses, which isn’t a real place but probably should be. The plague is caused by a bacteria called Yersinia pestis. Plague comes in more than one flavor, with multiple forms each of which affects different systems and organs in our bodies and has its own complications and mortality rates. If you’ve heard of just one type of plague, it’s probably the bubonic one, which gets its name from the impressively swollen lymph nodes known as buboes. These could appear in a sufferer’s groin or armpit and were often large, tender, and hot. While these days we use “the plague” and “bubonic plague” interchangeably, other forms can actually be more deadly. Fun!

The Black Plague If we asked you the scariest thing a disease can do, you’d probably say “kill you” and in a sense of course, you’d be right. But after years of studying the history of disease, we’re a little less impressed by the run-of-the-mill fatal stuff. After all, anything can kill you! Just look around. See that loose screw in the ceiling fan? That blender just a shade too close to the bathtub? That tuna salad you left out in the sun? Death is waiting for you around every corner.

a brief history of plague We know now all these details thanks to, well, science. Folks in history weren’t so lucky—which we know because the plague is mentioned as far back as the Bible. In the first book of Samuel, the Philistines are struck with some sort of tumorcausing plague after stealing the Ark of the Covenant from the Israelites. (For more details, seek out the popular documentary Raiders of the Lost Ark.) Descriptions of this disease, as well as the outbreak suffered by the Israelites after the Ark’s return, all seem to point to plague. In 532 CE, the Great Plague of Justinian spread from Byzantium throughout the Middle East, around the Mediterranean, and over to Egypt, eventually killing some 25 million people. This death toll represented 50 to 60 percent of the Eastern Roman Empire—and at least 13% of the entire world’s population. For the next few centuries history records only minor outbreaks, but that luck didn’t hold. In 1328, the plague appeared in China, quickly spreading along trade routes to Italy, and then to the rest of Europe. This outbreak lasted until about 1351, and wiped out 30 to 60 percent of Europe’s population.

While we’re pondering the relative scariness of nomenclature, could we not cook up something a little more threatening than “buboes”? Big, hot, gross groin bubbles and we give them a name that would be more appropriate for an adorable Super Mario enemy? You can do better, science.

a plague of plagues If you’re not into buboes, or just want to be different, you might consider septicemic plague for your next deadly disease. This variant 35

The mission statement of the Edumacation podcast is to inspire curiosity in our listeners and the rest of the world. Obviously, based on the quality of questions we get for the Why section, this mission is far from being completed. To be fair, the Why section flies in the face of conventional advice and infotainment shows: The audience sends in their questions, and instead of asking an expert, I ask Kevin Smith. Who is baked. But if I can achieve just one thing with this book, it would be to stop people from asking, “Why do birds suddenly appear every time you are near?” I get it. It’s a Carpenters song from the seventies. Big hit. Rick Moranis sang it in Parenthood. And it is a question. But it says way too much about you and doesn’t really inspire a meaningful conversation. So quit it! I started my adult career working for the Zagat Survey, which rates dining establishments, and there I got to learn many methods of conducting surveys. It turns out that conducting a survey is a lot like conducting an experiment: In order to get meaningful results, you have to ask questions to which you have already predicted the answers. If you want to squeeze something meaningful out of the vox populi, you can’t just ask something like “What aspect of a restaurant is most important to you?” The answer will always be “the quality of the food,” because the person who will fill out your survey on restaurants will always consider himself to be a foodie.

It wasn’t supposed to happen this way.

That’s been the New England Patriots’ mantra, built on the premise that Head Coach Bill Belichick has a vision, and success follows when the team comes together and executes the plan. Nothing better exemplifies this philosophy than the Patriots’ amazing and historic 2016–2017 world championship.

The Patriots were loaded with talent and poised to contend again, but just before training camp, Tom Brady announced that he would not appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court his league-issued four-game suspension for the controversy that came to be known as Deflategate. Backup QB Jimmy Garoppolo filled in capably, leading the Patriots to a 3-1 record to start the season. Upon his return, a rested Brady, his potent offense, and the league’s stingiest defense won every remaining game, save for a nail-biter against Seattle, to finish the regular season 14-2 and claim the AFC’s No. 1 seed in the playoffs. Still, it seemed that the only people cheering for the Patriots were Patriots fans, and everyone else wasn’t so much pulling for other teams as they were rooting against New England. It did not matter. The divisional playoff game against Houston and the conference championship against Pittsburgh were not close, as the Patriots emphatically punched their return ticket to the Super Bowl for the seventh time in the Brady-Belichick era. The game will be remembered both for its moments— Julian Edelman’s miraculous catch, Dont’a Hightower’s and Trey Flowers’ timely sacks of Falcons QB Matt Ryan, and James White’s three touchdowns, including the game-winner—and for its significance. The game, the comeback, the quarterback, the coach, and the team’s ultimate achievement are, quite simply, The Greatest Ever.

The Greatest Ever. chronicles every game during the regular season and the playoffs, including the team’s record-setting Super Bowl performance, to claim what owner Robert Kraft called “unequivocally the sweetest” of New England’s five world championships— plus the euphoric duck boat victory parade.

GUN 100 GREATEST FIREARMS

f all humanity’s dazzling innovations, perhaps none capture our imaginations or fuel our inventive spirits as much as flight. In our quest to soar higher, faster, and farther, we’ve dreamed up airborne wonders that are a sight to behold—like the supersonic F-22 Raptor, stealthily soaring above the clouds, or the Stearman PT-17 Biplane, the beautiful starter model that helped a generation earn their wings. That’s not even to mention the deluxe Concorde airliner—the first passenger jet to cruise at the speed of sound.

These iconic aircraft—and 97 more stunning feats of aeronautical engineering—make up the world’s most groundbreaking contributions to flight, all curated and collected here by the experts at FLYING magazine. In Flight: 100 Greatest Aircraft, there’s something for every aviation aficionado—from brazen stunt planes to far-from-pedestrian commercial jets, from military marvels to spacecraft that reached dazzling new heights. With its spectacular full-color photographs, fascinating and informative text, and detailed specifications section that will delight diehard data fans, Flight is the essential book for pilots and planelovers everywhere.

A gun can be appreciated as a tool, a weapon, an amazing piece of technology, a historical artifact, and even as a thing of beauty. This photographic celebration of the art and artistry of firearms covers some 500 years of history, from the game-changing matchlock to the latest innovations in rifles, shotguns, handguns, and more. Any list of the 100 most influential guns is going to have some expected items such as the Winchester Model 1873, the S&W Model 41, and the AK-47. But how do you make a case for the Mosin-Nagant rifle or the Webley revolver? Authors David E. Petzal and Phil Bourjaily, Field & Stream’s top gun writers, do just that in their informative and often highly opinionated commentary. This book features firearms from some of the top collections in America, presenting an unprecedented gallery of images. Additional sections cover technical specifications along with fascinating historical and cultural details.

Opened in October 2009, the 40,000-square-foot facility features the newest technology and historic materials and artifacts to bring Disney’s achievements to life, with interactive galleries that include early drawings and animation, movies, music, listening stations, a spectacular model of Disneyland, and much more.

Pinocchio J.B.Kaufman The Disney epic

The story of Mickey is in many ways a reflection of Walt Disney’s life—immensely influential on modern animators, seen everywhere from the covers of literary magazines to the walls of modern art galleries. This book documents one Mouse’s amazing journey, along with Disney’s own meteoric rise.

Art historian Garry Apgar’s compelling narrative— part art history and part cultural study—details how the character of Mickey was initially developed by Walt Disney and Ub Iwerks, how his irrepressible spirit grew to huge popularity during the Depression, and how he became a politically charged cultural icon of international reach, an ambassador for the American spirit, and a sometimes controversial symbol of the United States on the global stage.

Walt Disney’s most famous creation has made his mark everywhere from the Sunday funny papers to the walls of Pop Art galleries to the front lines of political and cultural criticism. Mickey Mouse has influenced our times in ways that are immeasurably rich and varied, and surprisingly complex and nuanced. This book explores the legacy and legend of the world’s most famous mouse.

Tyrus was hired by the Walt Disney Studio in 1938 to work as an “inbetweener,” creating the often-tedious drawings that completed the action between the animators’ key frames. While there, drawing upon his study of Sungdynasty landscape paintings, he developed soft-edged, atmospheric pastels of an ethereal forest that formed the basis of Bambi’s aesthetic. From 1942 to 1968, Tyrus worked at Warner Brothers as a production illustrator, drawing set designs and storyboards for many award-winning live-action feature films, including Rebel Without a Cause, Calamity Jane, Harper, Ice Palace, Around the World in Eighty Days, and The Wild Bunch.

In Somebody to Love, biographers Mark Langthorne and Matt Richards skilfully weave together Freddie Mercury’s incredible pursuit of musical greatness with Queen, his upbringing, and his endless search for love with the story of a terrible disease that swept across the world in the 1980s, as medical treatment fought to catch up with it despite underfunding, social ignorance, and homophobia.

SOMEBODY TO LOVE

9 781681 881881

With brand-new perspectives from Mercury’s closest friends and fellow musicians, this unique and deeply moving tribute casts a very different light on both his death and the origins of AIDS itself. An intimate read, this book—like Freddie and his art—will stay with you for a long time to come.

Some dishes were saved – the champagne jellies were melted down and put into bottles – but those that would spoil, including anything with lobster, were discreetly handed to charity and went to feed the poor in London's East End.

tips & tricks The cutlet shape was very popular with the Victorians. If you form the mixture into balls, you have rissoles, and if you put it in small pastry cases and bake it, you have patties. Spread it on toast and it’s a croute, and then works as a hors d’oeuvre. It also works with crab, both canned and fresh. If the mixture is too sloppy to shape, add more breadcrumbs until it is more manageable.

Whisk the egg, and lay the breadcrumbs out in a shallow bowl. Form the lobster mixture into 8 small balls, and mould them into the rough shape of meat cutlets (a flat pear shape). Brush them with egg, and put them in the breadcrumbs, turning them to make sure they are completely coated. Heat the butter or oil over medium heat, and lay in your cutlets. If the fat is too hot, the breadcrumbs will burn before they are heated through, so keep the heat moderate, and turn them once the underneath has browned. Meanwhile, if there was roe in your lobster, mash this up with ½ oz of butter. When the cutlets are cooked, about 5 minutes, drain them briefly on paper towel and serve hot, garnished with the parsley.

ingredients 1 large head cauliflower

for the sauce

1 oz (30 g) unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing

was a mixture of strong, empowering

language, and utterly garbled recipes,

for Isabella plagiarised freely to compile her book – which didn’t just deal with cookery, but the whole running of a

household. Firmly aimed at the rapidly increasingly urban middle classes, it set out to help women who had not necessarily been brought up with

servants, and who had patchy educations, largely founded on music and feminine

pursuits, but who now found themselves married to businessmen and expected to play an active role in hiring and firing servants, caring for their families, and

Cut or break the cauliflower up into bite-size florets. Heat the butter in a heavy-bottomed pan and add the florets, sprinkling with the flour as you do. Keep them moving for about 5 minutes until they start to brown, and then add 4 tablespoons of water. Stir well, and put a lid on. Cook until they are still fairly firm, but partly cooked.

This is an English classic, and done badly, remains the source of nightmares for many people forced to cook it in cookery lessons at school (where it was often done with a whole cauliflower, served soggy on the outside, and raw in the middle). The Maillard reaction, which happens when food is browned, adds muchneeded depth of flavor and nuttiness to both the sauce and the cauliflower. However, if you want an authentic taste of how bad British cookery can be, don't brown the cauliflower first, make a plain white sauce, and use mild, factory-produced Cheddar.

Heat the butter and flour until they brown, and then add the milk gradually, whisking to make sure there are no lumps. Season with nutmeg, pepper, and a little cayenne. Add 2 oz of grated cheddar and remove from the heat. Drain the cauliflower and put it in a well-greased deep oven-proof dish. Pour the sauce over the top, and sprinkle with the remaining cheddar cheese. Bake in the oven for at 390°F (200°C) for 10–15 minutes until the top is brown and bubbling. Allow to cool slightly before serving so that the cheese crisps up, and you don’t burn your mouth.

Cocktails with macabre names were popular in Victorian England as pick-me-ups, usually for those suffering from a hangover. They have nothing in common except that all are strong cocktails. Crosby Gaige, a bon vivant of the 1930s, once said that one Corpse Reviver would revitalize any self-respecting corpse, but that four taken in swift succession would return the corpse to a reclining position. 1½ oz (45 ml) triple sec

½ oz (15 ml) fresh lemon juice

1 oz (30 ml) dry vermouth

Pour all of the ingredients into a shaker two-thirds full of ice cubes. Shake well. Strain into a chilled coupe or cocktail glass.

I grew up eating Shake ’n Bake Chicken. I have vivid memories of helping my mom shake the chicken in the bright orange bag of crumbs—it was so easy and fun. And it US

still is today, though the flavors are more modern. I use the same method in this recipe, but I’ve added zesty Green Pesto (page 27) to panko (Japanese-style bread crumbs), which results in light, crispy crumbed chicken.

HEAT THE OIL

Canola oil for frying

In a large, deep sauté pan, heat about 1 inch of oil over medium heat until it reaches 375˚F on a deep-frying thermometer or until a small piece of an egg roll wrapper dropped into the oil begins to brown in about 20 seconds.

4 bananas

PREPARE THE SPRING ROLLS

Ground cinnamon for sprinkling

Cut the bananas in half lengthwise, then in half again crosswise. Set aside a small bowl of water. Work with one egg roll wrapper at a time, keeping the remaining wrappers covered with a kitchen towel to prevent drying. Lay an egg roll wrapper on a work surface with one corner pointing toward you. Place a banana piece on the bottom third of the wrapper. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon brown sugar, then dust with cinnamon. Fold the bottom corner over the banana, fold in the side corners, then roll up the banana in the wrapper. Moisten the top corner with a dab of water, then press the corner against the roll to seal it shut. Set aside. Repeat to make all the rolls.

WARM PUPPY PANCAKES

Happiness is a serving of these delightful pancakes, which can be topped with fresh fruit or some butter and maple syrup. INGREDIENTS 2 cups all-purpose flour 2 tablespoons sugar 2 teaspoons baking powder 11⁄2 teaspoons baking soda 1⁄2 teaspoon salt 2 large eggs, lightly beaten 13⁄4 cups whole milk 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus 1⁄4 cup melted for frying and more for serving Maple syrup and berries, for serving Makes 3 to 4 servings

1

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir until mixed and make a well in the center. Pour the eggs, milk, and the 2 tablespoons melted butter into the well, then gradually whisk from the center outward, until the ingredients are combined but still a little lumpy; do not overmix the batter, or the pancakes will be heavy.

2

Preheat a nonstick or cast-iron griddle over medium-high heat until a drop of water flicked onto the surface dances and evaporates instantly. Brush the griddle with a little of the ¼ cup melted butter. Slowly ladle a scant 1⁄4 cup of the batter onto the griddle, centering the ladle over the batter so it spreads out into a circle on its own. If necessary, use the bottom of the ladle to nudge the batter into a perfect circle. Continue ladling out the batter to make as many pancakes as you can fit without letting them touch. If they do touch, separate with the edge of a spatula.

3

When the pancakes have begun to bubble in the center and a few of the bubbles have popped and the undersides are golden, about 2 minutes, use the spatula to flip them. Cook until the second side is golden, about 1–2 minutes longer, then transfer to an uncovered platter in a low (200°F) oven to keep warm. Cook the remaining pancakes in the same way, adding butter to the griddle as needed.

Vanilla Cupcakes (page 36), baked and cooled Fluffy Vanilla Frosting (page 104) ½ cup star-shaped or other shaped sprinkles

Using a paring knife, cut a 1½-inch-diameter round about 1 inch deep in the center of each cupcake, then remove the rounds and set them aside. Fill each hollow with about 2 teaspoons of sprinkles. Cut the rounds that you removed from the cupcakes in half horizontally; reserve the tops and discard—or eat!—the rest. Return the tops to the cupcakes, covering the sprinkles, then gently press down on each to fit it into the hole.

Blue gel paste food coloring

Fit a large pastry bag with a large star tip (see page 15; we used Ateco 826).

Pink gel paste food coloring

the side of the pastry bag, then paint another blue stripe against the other

Using a paintbrush, paint a stripe of blue food coloring from tip to top against side of the bag, opposite the first stripe. Clean the brush and paint a stripe of pink food coloring against the side of the pastry bag between the blue stripes, then paint a second pink stripe opposite the first pink stripe. Carefully transfer the frosting to the pastry bag; try not to disturb the stripes. Pipe the frosting onto the cupcakes.

Fresh Vegetable Spring Rolls NEWLYWED COOKBOOK

These light, healthy spring rolls are perfect finger food on warm days. Rolling the rice paper takes a bit of practice, so you will both want to give it try. Loosely wrap any leftover rolls in damp paper towels and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 day. M A K ES 1 2 R O L LS ; S E RVES 4 ½ lb (8 oz/250 g) shiitake mushrooms 2 tsp canola or peanut oil 1 clove garlic, pressed or minced 1 tsp soy sauce, preferably low-sodium 7 oz (220 g) thin dried rice noodles 12 rice paper wrappers, 8½ inches (21.5 cm) in diameter

2 ripe avocados, pitted, peeled, and sliced 2 carrots, peeled and cut into matchsticks 1 cup (1 oz/30 g) firmly packed mixed fresh herb sprigs such as mint, cilantro, and basil

Trim the stems from the mushrooms and discard or reserve for soup or stock. Slice the caps and set aside. In a large nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1½ teaspoons of the oil. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant but not browned, about 30 seconds. Add the mushroom caps and sauté until they release their liquid, 3–4 minutes. Add the soy sauce and cook until the pan is dry, about 1 minute. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. Bring a pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the noodles, stir to separate, and cook until tender, 3–5 minutes or according to the package directions. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold running water. Wipe the pot dry, return the noodles to the pot, and toss with the remaining ½ teaspoon oil. Fill a large, shallow bowl with very hot tap water. Soak 1 rice paper wrapper at a time until just flexible, 10–15 seconds. Shake off any excess water and lay the wrapper flat on a work surface. Across the lower half of the wrapper, place rows of noodles, mushrooms, bell pepper, avocado, carrots, and herbs. Fold the edge closest to you over the filling, fold in the sides, then roll up tightly. Repeat to make the remaining rolls. Cut each roll in half on the diagonal and serve.

chile dipping sauce

To make a quick sauce for these homemade rolls, mix ¼ cup (2 oz/60 g) each of sugar and fresh lime juice with 5 tablespoons Asian fish sauce, 1 clove minced garlic, ½ teaspoon dried chile flakes, and ½ cup (4 fl oz/125 ml) water.

Peak season for figs generally stretches from midsummer to early fall. Black Mission is the most common variety, but other types, such as Brown Turkey or the yellowish-green Kadota, will also work in this enticing recipe. Pomegranate seeds add extra color, flavor, and crunch. S ER V ES 8 –1 0 Flatbread Dough (page 248) or 1 lb (500 g) purchased pizza dough Olive oil for brushing FOR THE HONEY-BALSAMIC VINAIGRETTE

1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar ½ tsp honey Salt and freshly ground pepper 1½–2 Tbsp olive oil 6 oz (180 g) goat cheese 1 pint (10 oz/315 g) fresh figs, halved ¼ cup (1¼ oz/35 g) pomegranate seeds Fresh mint leaves and oregano leaves for garnish Salt and freshly ground pepper Honey for drizzling

variation

Place the homemade or purchased dough on a lightly floured work surface and press flat to release excess air. (If the dough has risen in the refrigerator, cover with a kitchen towel and bring to room temperature before continuing.) Preheat the oven to 425°F (220°C). Grease a baking sheet with olive oil. Press and stretch the dough into a rough oval about 10 by 20 inches (25 by 50 cm). Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and brush liberally with olive oil. Bake for 8 minutes. Meanwhile, make the honey-balsamic vinaigrette: In a bowl, whisk together the vinegar, honey, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Whisking constantly, slowly add the oil until emulsified. Set aside. Crumble the goat cheese over the flatbread, then arrange the figs evenly over the top. Continue to bake until the flatbread is golden, 6–8 minutes longer. Sprinkle the pomegranate seeds over the flatbread, then garnish with mint and oregano leaves. Drizzle the vinaigrette over the top, season to taste with salt and pepper, then finish with a drizzle of honey. Cut into pieces and serve.

MEDITERRANEAN FLATBREAD Brush the flatbread dough lightly with olive oil, then layer with a mix of sliced and whole tomatoes, thin slabs of feta cheese, and pitted Kalamata olives. Bake until the crust is golden, about 15 minutes.

I met my husband, Nick, when we were students at Juilliard in New York. After several years living in the city, Nick floated the idea of moving back to his family farm, and I was like, “Yes! I’m moving whether you’re with me or not!” The quality of life here is what made me fall in love with this area. I mean, I have my own chickens and my own rhubarb patch. I wasn’t sure how much there would be to learn about food in North Dakota, but I’ve fallen totally in love with hotdish. I know now it’s everything you could ever want when it’s thirty degrees below zero!

chocolate chip rugelach Using miniature chocolate chips instead of regular ones makes these cookies easier to roll. The apricot preserves add a slightly tangy taste.

1

In a large bowl, stir together the 2¼ cups flour, the sugar, and salt. Add the cream cheese and, using a mixer on low speed, beat until the ingredients are blended, about 30 seconds. Add the butter and beat until large clumps of dough form, about 1 minute. Add the sour cream and vanilla and beat until well blended. Cut the dough into 4 equal pieces and form each into a 3-inch disk. Wrap each disk tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, at least 45 minutes.

2 3

Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 375˚F. Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper.

One at a time, remove the dough disks from the refrigerator and place on a floured work surface. Using a floured rolling pin, roll out each disk into a 10-inch circle. Spread 1 tablespoon of the apricot preserves over each dough circle, leaving a ¾-inch border on the edges and a 1-inch circle in the center uncovered. Sprinkle one-fourth of the chocolate chips over each dough circle.

4

Cut each round into 12 wedges. Beginning at the wide ends, roll the edge over the filling to form a cylinder. Place the cylinders 1 inch apart on a cookie sheet with the tip facing down. Bend the ends to form a crescent. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, until the edges are golden, 15–18 minutes. Let cool on the sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool for 10 minutes. Brush the warm tops with the glaze. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

potato donuts Old-fashioned and modern come together in these classic donuts: Mashed potatoes lend an uncommonly smooth texture, and mace—a spice made from the outer covering of nutmeg berries with, logically, a mild nutmeg flavor— adds aroma and herbal hints. Salt and pepper add an unexpected savory kick.

1

In a bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, ¾ teaspoon of the salt, ¼ teaspoon of the pepper, and the mace. In another bowl, combine the potato, ⅓ cup of the sugar, the eggs, milk, melted butter, and lemon zest. Using an electric mixer set on low speed (use the paddle attachment for a stand mixer), beat until blended. Add the flour mixture and beat until the mixture comes together into a sticky dough. Cover and refrigerate the dough until firm, at least 1 hour and up to 2 hours.

2

Line a baking sheet with paper towels. Pour oil to a depth of 2 inches into a deep fryer or deep, heavy sauté pan and warm over medium-high heat until it reads 360°F on a deep-frying thermometer.

3

On a generously floured work surface, roll out the dough into a circle 10 inches in diameter and ½ inch thick. Using a 2½-inch or 3-inch round donut cutter, cut out as many donuts as possible. Gather up the donut scraps and repeat rolling and cutting. (For more information on rolling and cutting, see page 13.)

These elegant layer cakes shine with the addition of sparkling wine and raspberry purée. There’s no need to use expensive champagne, but use a sparkling wine that you’d like to drink and serve glasses of it alongside the cakes.

CHAMPAGNE & RASPBERRY MINI LAYER CAKES Unsalted butter, for greasing

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a rimmed sheet cake pan, line the pan with parchment paper, then grease the parchment. Dust with flour, then tap out any excess. Make the champagne cake batter.

All-purpose flour, for dusting 1 recipe Champagne Cake (page 92)

Spread the batter in the prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Let cool completely in the pan on a wire rack, then invert the cake onto a cutting board or an upside-down baking sheet. Remove the parchment. Using a 3-inch (7.5-cm) round cutter, cut out 9 rounds.

½ recipe Raspberry Filling (page 103) FOR THE CHAMPAGNE BUTTERCREAM

1 cup (8 oz/250 g) unsalted butter, at room temperature

Make the raspberry filling.

4 cups (1 lb/500 g) confectioners’ sugar

To make the buttercream, in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium speed until smooth, about 2 minutes. Add the confectioners’ sugar, sparkling wine, vanilla, and salt, raise the speed to medium-high, and beat until combined, stopping the mixer to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.

5 tablespoons (80 ml) sparkling wine 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

To assemble the cakes, transfer one-fourth of the buttercream to a pastry bag and cut a 1⁄2-inch (12-mm) opening. Pipe a ring around the outside edge of 1 cake round, then spread a layer of raspberry filling in the center (see p.15). Top with another cake round and repeat to form 3 cake layers. Repeat to assemble the remaining cakes.

⅓ cup (1 oz/20 g) freeze-dried raspberries ⅓ cup (1½ oz/45 g) fresh raspberries

Refrigerate the cakes until set, about 1 hour. Spread the remaining buttercream over the tops and sides of the cakes. Garnish with freeze-dried and fresh raspberries and serve.

Serves 6; makes three 3-inch (7.5-cm) 3-layer cakes

MODERN CLASSICS

If the buttercream is too loose, add more confectioners’ sugar. If it is too thick, stir in more sparkling wine or a few teaspoons of milk.

EASY ELEGANCE KEEP IT PERSONAL

Whether it is two or ten coming over, make ladies night special with your own touches. A cheese plate and appetizers is just as intimate as a formal table and coursed meal with the right company.

COLOR IMPACT

I like to keep the decor color palatte simplistic for my dinner parties with neutrals like white, black, and grays with a muted accent color such as peach. I then add some pizzaz with vibrant florals that can be changed to fit my mood and occasion without having to buy all new linens for each party. Flowers with large blooms such as peonies, ranunculus, garden roses, or poppies go a long way meaning you don’t have to spend a fortune on a ton of flowers.

POWER OF FLOWERS

If you are pulling out all of the stops for a glamorous evening with your favorite ladies, keep in mind a few

ASHLEY’S TIP

tips when choosing flowers for the table. Make sure floral arrangements are low or loose so they don’t block views across the table—speaking from my experience as a short girl over here, I often find it hard to make out the faces of my fellow guests through the foliage! Small bouquets or stems that creep along the table like garlands are options to help keep guests engaged with one another.

Have a self-service drink station set up on a bar cart or credenza within reach of the party rather than tucked away in the kitchen. This is a major trick to help keep both the drinks and conversations flowing all night.

engaged with another. SERVE UPone SIMPLICITY If you are having a more casual get-together with appetizers, spread platters out throughout your space to encourage movement. For more formal gatherings, you can still keep it simple by serving family style rather than a coursed meal. This will save you time and encourage guests to interact more. Pre-batch or make ahead any cocktails you need for the evening. Then, all you will have to do is pour up from a pitcher or bottle leaving you more time to enjoy the conversation with your friends.

ASHLEY’S TIP

Rosé Aperol Spritz SERVES 1

Aperol Spritzes are the quintessential summer sippers. They’re just as good by the pool, at a BBQ, or at a picnic and are literally as easy as 1-2-3: The proportions are 1 part club soda, 2 parts aperol, and 3 parts sparkling wine. They don’t require a shaker or mixing glass making them a go-to pick for any leisurely gathering. To mix up this staple cocktail, I like to swap out the traditional prosecco for a sparkling rosé and add a grapefruit slice in place of an orange to give it a new flavor profile.

3 oz sparkling rosé 2 oz Aperol 1 oz club soda

Spritzes are a beloved drink in Italy and are often served as aperitifs before a meal and come in varying flavors. To mix up this spritz, you can swap out the Aperol for a different aperitivo liqueur such as Suze, or Cocchi Americano. Or, for a bracing bitter spritz, add in Camapri.

GARNISH

Add ice into a large wine glass. Add the sparkling rosé, Aperol, and club soda to the glass. Stir Gently. Garnish with the grapefruit slice.

Rosé Punch SERVES 8 –10

This grapefruit and strawberry concoction for a crowd is bright and refreshing. Cocchi Americano, an aperitif wine with something called quinine thats gives classic tonic water its flavor, adds a lot of layers to the drink. Serve this pretty punch in your favorite punch bowl and let your guests serve themselves while you entertain. With jewel-like garnishes, it becomes a statement piece served on a bar cart, buffet, or table.

Sussman Brothers Series

MAX + ELI SUSSMAN

Max Sussman has been cooking professionally for more than a decade. Most recently, he was executive chef at the neighborhood favorite, The Cleveland, in Manhattan. He was chef de cuisine at Roberta’s, when the famed Brooklyn restaurant received two stars from the New York Times, and has also worked at Manhattan’s Michelin-starred Breslin Bar & Dining Room. In 2012, Max was a James Beard Awards semifinalist for Rising Star Chef of the Year and was named both a Zagat New York City and a Forbes 30 under 30.

How did we plant the Sussman flag atop this Mount Everest of cookbook challenges? First, we crowdsourced our friends for their favorite foods growing up. Next, we time traveled back to our own youth in Detroit, where our parents ignited our fire for cooking, and then mashed up everything we discovered into all-new classics. We also flew (in our minds, due to budget limitations) around the world in search of traditional recipes to update, rejiggered TV dinners into tasty made-from-scratch meals, and transformed desserts and breakfast dishes that sound familiar on paper into fresh experiences on your palate. Finally, we revisited some old-school fare, like chicken soup, fondue, and game-day dips.

The Sussman brothers have worked their culinary magic to reimagine dozens of familiar recipes. Childhood plates have been revamped with adult tastes in mind. Iconic French dishes boast easier techniques and new flavors. T V dinners are now cooked-from-scratch meals. And both traditional desserts and international favorites have been deliciously updated. Everything old is new again—tastier, bolder, and better. Welcome to the new classics.

With recipes so deliciously awesome, your life will change forever

will transform the way you think about sweets. For starters, “baked goods” don’t need to be baked—and you can make an amazing range of delicious cakes, pies, candies, ice creams, and cookies without a teaspoon of wheat flour or a sprinkle of white sugar. Finnish author Virpi Mikkonen’s secret is less what she leaves out of her desserts and more about the innovative array of wholesome and flavorful ingredients she includes, from coconut milk to almond flour to puréed dates and figs.

Born out of a desire to offer herself treats that left her feeling light, healthy, and satisfied, Virpi has experimented, tinkered, and tastetested her way to a glorious array of yummy desserts minus gluten, refined sugar, and dairy (if you like). Most are entirely plant based, many are prepared in the freezer rather than the oven, and all are surprisingly simple and fun to make. Once you try her (raw!) Blueberry Dream Cake, Peanut Toffee Chocolates, or Cardamom Vanilla Donuts, you may never look back.

A beautifully crafted cookie is a work of art and beloved by all. Still-warm cookies fresh from the oven are irresistibly enticing but decorating the treats doubles the fun. Whether it’s a cookie exchange, holiday gathering, or Mother’s Day tea, decorated cookies are a sweet and memorable addition to any special occasion. The Art of the Cookie presents over 40 delectable recipes and inspiring decorating ideas. With a focus on transforming a simple cookie into a masterpiece, each recipe promises both exceptional flavor and visual appeal. The cookie recipes are divided into two main chapters. The first offers favorite and versatile roll-and-cut dough recipes, such as brown sugar cookies and gingerbread, followed by clever, yet simple ideas for decorating them: vibrant vanilla-sugar flowers; alphabet shapes flooded with icing and sprinkled with colorful sugars; and petits fours stacked to resemble a miniature wedding cake. The second chapter includes classics with a modern twist, such as sparkly macarons; wreath-shaped sugar cookies baked with lemon and thyme and decorated with icing ornaments; and striped cookies that taste and look like peppermint sticks. Recipes for various fillings to use with many of the cookies round out the collection. Indulgent

HIT THE ROAD You’ll find friendly, comprehensive guidance on buying the right bike and other gear (including what you don’t need to buy, and where you really shouldn’t scrimp), and getting the most out of your ride wherever it may take you—street, trails, or beyond.

ROBERT F. JAMES is a writer, editor, farmer, and lifelong cyclist. He works in an independent bicycle shop and, for fun, participates in the kind of endurance rides that most people get tired just reading about (notably the AIDS/LifeCycle and the Furnace Creek 508, a 508-mile race that crosses Death Valley and the Mojave Desert.)

KEEP ROLLING Detailed instructions and step-by-step illustrations guide you through essential maintenance and a wide range of DIY repairs and upgrades. You’ll learn something new whether you have a workshop full of tools or are just getting started wrenching. The magazine’s mission is to unify, inspire, and integrate cycling culture into everyday life by providing entertaining and informative articles. Work or play, day or night, dirt or road, it’s all part of the Bicycle Times everyday cycling adventure.
