Athens’ Architectural Heritage Is Slowly Slipping Away but These Heroes Are Saving It
Art Directors & TRIP / Alamy Stock PhotoOne day in 2006, Irini Gratsia was walking through Athens and wondering why nothing was being done to save the city’s historic pre-War buildings. Although Greece has stringent archeological laws to protect antiquities, the city’s modern architectural heritage–which began in 1834 with the establishment of Athens as the capital of a newly independent Greece–has largely been ignored.Popular images of Athens tend to depict it as a city of ancient ruins and modern apartment blocks with little in between, but take a walk round any neighborhood and you’ll find something of architectural interest. Just take a walk alongTake central Panepistimiou Street, an urban museum and perhaps the most remarkable ensemble of modern architecture anywhere in Greece.There are of course the Neoclassical buildings that defined the fledgling years of the Greek state, the earliest of these designed by architects spirited in from Germany and Denmark in order to re-imagine a post-Ottoman Greece based on a romanticized impression of ancient Athens. The movement reached its apotheosis with Theophil and Christian Hansen’s ‘Athenian Trilogy’ at the center of Panepistimiou Street, a lurid expression of romanticized philhellenism in architectural form. As Greek architects began learning the trade they developed a more subdued Greek Neoclassicism, as seen by the adjacent Serpieri Mansion (1881) by Anastasios Theophilas and the yellow Rallis House (1835) by Stamatis Kleanthis opposite, surreally reflected in the glass tower block behind. There’s also the Attica Department Store, a Neoclassical-Art Deco fusion and the largest building in Athens at the time of its completion in 1938, the Neobyzantine Athens Eye Hospital (1855), the Neorenaissance Numismatic Museum (1880), the Catholic Basilica of St. Dionysius the Areopagite (1865) with its ‘why not?’ fusion of Neo Byzantine, Neoclassical and Neo Renaissance, the New York-esque towers of the Art Deco Rex Cinema (1937) and the Stripped Classicism of the Bank of Greece (1938).Read more at The Daily Beast.

We’re Ignoring What CBD Could Do for COVID—at Our Own Peril
Photo Illustration by Thomas Levinson/The Daily Beast/GettyLet’s get this out of the way now: You should not take CBD to prevent COVID-19. You should not smoke weed to prevent COVID-19—in fact, that will probably make things worse. You definitely should not drink CBD seltzers or take gummies to protect yourself from a virus that has the potential to kill you—especially when there are vaccines that are proven to protect you.At the same time, it can also be true that CBD from cannabis has a role to play in this pandemic—from treating COVID directly, to dealing with the pandemic’s emotional side effects. We’re already seeing this potential teased out in a flourish of new scientific research.Last week, scientists published findings suggesting CBD might stop the coronavirus from replicating inside cells. They also found that patients prescribed CBD-based drugs for epilepsy had lower COVID-19 positivity rates than people who hadn’t been prescribed CBD, an early signal that this could hold up in the real world. This was hot off the heels of another recent study , suggesting two other cannabis compounds could bind to the coronavirus’ spike protein—stopping it from getting into cells in the first place.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

‘Cancer’ PAC Showers Cash on MAGA Guv Wannabe
Kevin Dietsch/GettyThe medical practice belonging to a New York congressman’s personal doctor pumped $60,829 into a federal political action committee that funneled the cash into his campaign for governor in violation of campaign-finance rules, The Daily Beast has discovered.Documents filed with the state Board of Elections earlier this month show the donation dropped into GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin’s gubernatorial campaign coffers in November from the Conquering Cancer PAC, an outfit that formed last summer and, to date, appears to have never contributed to any other candidate. A Board of Elections spokesman told The Daily Beast that New York election law obligates any political committee giving more than $1,000 to a state or local candidate to register with authorities in Albany—and Conquering Cancer PAC has never done so, public records show.Public records also show the leadership of Conquering Cancer PAC is intimately entangled with Zeldin himself: his own campaign treasurer manages the PAC, and the donations to it have come entirely from people tied to one medical practice. That practice is New York Cancer & Blood Specialists, headed by Dr. Jeffrey Vacirca, himself the PAC’s largest donor, though several other physicians associated with the practice also contributed to the $60,829 total.Read more at The Daily Beast.

The True Cost of Masking Young Kids Forever
GettyIn places all over the world, children attend school without mask mandates. Students in Denmark have been maskless since May 2020. France doesn’t require them for kids under 11 years old, and in Ireland, it’s under 9. Schools in Norway and Sweden go without masks entirely. In the UK, Kate Middleton does uncontroversial visits to primary schools and mingles with the unmasked youth.The World Health Organization explicitly recommends against masking for kids under 5 and Europe’s equivalent of the CDC recommends against masking primary school children at all.The presumption among most health agencies in Europe has been that blanket mask mandates for young children are inappropriate for a cohort that, unlike adults, is unlikely to either face danger from COVID or wear masks correctly. There’s also the consideration of the “potential impact of wearing a mask on learning and psychosocial development.”Read more at The Daily Beast.

OMG, I Want to Rent That House: Byron Bay, Australia
Courtesy VrboWategos Villas, Byron Bay, Australia (Vrbo): For two years, we’ve all been glued to news of the “next wave.” So, it’s safe to say, we all deserve a break. But if you choose to take the vacation days that we believe every human being on the planet has accrued by living through COVID and use them on a holiday in Byron Bay, you will not necessarily get a break from wave watching. That’s because this hotspot in New South Wales is famed for its excellent surfing. Between spending days in the South Pacific Ocean and nights in this gorgeous villa, you may just start to feel a little of that ol’ 2019 energy coming back.This bird’s eye view helps illustrate the most important feature of the house: it’s only 164 feet from Wategos Beach. At a glance, that number may not seem that close. But to put it into context, that is just about the same length as Tiger Woods’ $20 million yacht, Privacy.Based on what we assume must be the million-dollar industry of maritime accents and beach-themed wall art that fill most seaside homes, we believe it must be nearly impossible to design a beach home that is actually chic. That sea air starts blowing in and all of a sudden you have a craving for kitsch. Not here. Wategos Villas is the exception to the rule and proves the one design tenet that will never fail: if you keep the color scheme neutral and use only fine art and nature as your decorative flourishes, you can’t go wrong.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Andrew Garfield Is Charming the Pants Off Everyone This Oscar Season
Courtesy Everett Collection/NetflixEvery year, awards season grants film-lovers and people who generally enjoy celebrities an abundance of amusing soundbites, clips and snafus leading up to the Oscars. So far, Lady Gaga has inundated us with bizarre, questionable facts about her transformation into House of Gucci’s Patrizia Reggiani. Denzel Washington had his own viral “sorry to this man” moment when asked about Snowfall actor Damson Idris during several red-carpet interviews. Nicolas Cage spoke about his beef with a horse at a roundtable. Arguably though, no one has enjoyed more virality on their quest for the little golden statuette than Best Actor contender Andrew Garfield.As someone who was obsessed with The Social Network in 2010—and later feigned interest in Spider-Man when he inherited the role in 2012—I was shocked at the amount of people on Twitter who had seemingly never considered Garfield a celebrity crush or were aware of his deeply earnest personality until his most recent press tour for his Netflix movie tick, tick…BOOM!, for which he’ll most likely score an Oscar nomination. (To be fair, some of the internet users I observed were younger).It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what triggered social media’s newfound admiration for the 38-year-old actor, since his resurgence in popularity has mostly centered around interviews and dug-up clips as opposed to his actual performance in the musical film or his uncanny portrayal of Jim Bakker in his other big 2021 movie The Eyes of Tammy Faye. Nevertheless, a Garfieldaissance is certainly upon us.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Progressives Should Be Thankful for Sinema and Manchin

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s recent comments about Sen. Kyrsten Sinema.This week, Ocasio-Cortez appeared on MSNBC and declared that supporting a potential primary challenge to Sinema would be “the easiest decision I would ever have to make.” She also personally scolded Sinema, saying, “She is not an ally on civil rights,” and accusing her of “contributing to the threat that we have in stabilizing our democracy.” The New York congresswoman further called the Arizona senator a “profound ally” of corporate interests.Democratic infighting and disunity (an obvious problem since Biden’s Build Back Better bill crumbled) aside, I’m most interested in the timing of her remarks.

This Man Lives in the Plane That Flew Jackie O to a Funeral—and You’re Welcome to Join Him
Joshua MellinBruce Campbell sleeps naked on the couch of a decommissioned 727-284 plane in Hillsboro, Oregon. It’s a fact that the 71-year-old retired engineer offers freely. It’s also one of many other personal facts he offers up, along with a clothed demonstration of how he bathes in his homemade shower, which features a hose and a flexible chest-high piece of circular plastic that he can’t bear to upgrade because it’s become a conversation piece. Yes, this is a lot of personal information to glean from someone you just met. But Campbell’s openness is understandable—it’s hard to have any secrets when you’re known as the local Airplane Home guy.There’s nothing new about rethinking traditional housing. In Wales, Tolkien mega-fan Simon Dale built a Hobbit house for a scant £3000—a hillside structure which also doubles as one of the eco-friendliest buildings in the world. Beijing-based architect Dai Haifei built and briefly lived in an egg-shaped house outside his office to draw attention to rising housing prices. And of course, for anyone looking to get into the alternative home game, a literal cottage industry has sprung up around tiny houses, which are often parked on trailers to skirt local zoning laws.But what stands out is Campbell’s absolute devotion to his materials. Located up a hill so steep that our Uber driver prematurely ends the trip, his intact plane looks like it just fell from the sky and into the forest on his 10-acre property. It’s a surreal vision that’s only heightened when he peeks out his head out of a hatch and offers us a full-throated hello. Jokes about Lost and Airplane!? He doesn’t own a television, but has heard them all, and still graciously chuckles every time.Read more at The Daily Beast.

‘Legend of Vox Machina’: How Critical Role Turned a D&D Game Night Into a Hit Animated Series
Prime VideoThere is a term for the perfect roll of the dice in Dungeons & Dragons; it’s called a Natural 20, which gives the player the maximum possible value on a 20-sided die to make a move, attack an enemy, or cast a spell. When the group of friends behind the web series Critical Role–aptly named after this particular throw–rolled the dice on their business, they undeniably hit that Natural 20. But despite trending on Twitter every Thursday evening, garnering millions of streaming views, and creating an online empire, the impetus of Critical Role will always be the same: a simple game played among friends.It all started back in 2012, when a group of voice actor friends gathered at the apartment of Marisha Ray and Matthew Mercer for a night of Dungeons & Dragons, a popular tabletop role-playing game (RPG). “I had no idea what the fuck was gonna be happening. I was just like, ‘Sure, I'll go to this thing and bring a pencil and see what happens.’ And then Laura [Bailey]’s doing an accent,” Ashley Johnson tells The Daily Beast with a laugh on a joint Zoom call with Bailey and Ray.That night laid the foundation for Critical Role. “It's where we all connected and where all of our lives took a complete turn in the best way,” Johnson says. Those eight friends–Johnson, Mercer, Ray, Bailey, Taliesin Jaffe, Travis Willingham, Sam Riegel, and Liam O’Brien–soon found themselves as the founders and stars of the most popular D&D streaming show.Read more at The Daily Beast.

See John Malkovich Transform Into Meryl Streep, Che Guevara, Albert Einstein and More
Sandro MillerI began working with John Malkovich more than 20 years ago, when he was an ensemble member of the world-renowned Steppenwolf Theatre Company. I met John during a photo session, and we’ve been friends and collaborators ever since that initial meeting, creating 120 portraits to date. His belief and trust in my work is unprecedented. He has granted me many opportunities to work with him. Over the past years, I would approach John with various personal projects, ranging from short films to photographic stories. He has never said no, and has always been open to my ideas. For me, John is a beautiful clean canvas ready for paint. He is extremely open-minded, never fearful, and always willing to go to places most actors of his caliber would avoid. He is a genius willing to take chances—a talent that allows himself to become anything I ask.Purchase Sandro Miller’s book Malkovich Malkovich MalkovichIn 2011, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer. The illness took me down hard and left me thinking about my future as a father, husband, and photographer.
