Spring 2012: The Rise of 1 World Trade Center

Been behind as usual, but for the time being, check out this fascinating time-lapse video of the construction of 1 World Trade Center, provided by Metro, as 1 WTC will become the tallest building in NYC this week – a poignant thing to realize, as it succeeds the predecessor World Trade Center.

Happy Passover, Happy Easter, Happy Spring 2012!

FC and P are in Hong Kong, seeing YC and others. There shall be many food photos or other items here at triscribe or on Facebook.

Over at Entertainment Weekly, a Q&A with Yul Kwon.  The return of Yul Kwon on tv, this time on PBS. Yay, an Asian American lawyer who’s pretty hot on tv!

We could use a few more Mr. Rogers in this world these days; fascinating item about a documentary on Mr. Rogers via Roger Ebert, over at the Chicago Sun-Times’ website.

I think that it’s sad that they’re moving The Sphere back to the JFK hangar. It’s always been a sentimental favorite of mine, and I’ve felt that it ought to be back on the WTC site, someday (see here on WNBC’s website for the news story video).

Fascinating item from NPR.  Well, Darthmouth’s medical school is changing its name.  technically, it’d be the “The Audrey and Theodor Geisel School of Medicine,” not the “Dr. Seuss Medical School.” Still: cool.
