It’s not surprising that Portland and New York are ranked high in a new report about the best places to get around without your car, but the other bike-friendly destinations may surprise you. Have you tried walking to work in Alaska?
Jusepe de Ribera, Tityus, 1632
From the Museo del Prado:
Tityus, the son of Jupiter and Elara, is shown chained to a rock in Tartaria. An eagle eternally devours his entrails, which are reborn with each phase of the moon. This giant was punished after he was incited by Juno to attempt to seduce one of his father’s lovers.
The subject of the condemned —Tityus, Ixion, Tantalus and Sisyphus— attained certain popularity in European art from the modern era and was often used in palace decorations. These works personified the reigning dynasty’s implacable powers against the infidelity, pride and arrogance of those who attacked the supremacy of the monarchy.

Idler—Modular Typeface Family
This new typeface from Lamesville and availible on You Work For Them comes in six different weights that can be layered up and colored to create interesting styles and effect. This well animated video walks you through three examples of how the font can be used.
Idler is an all caps, modular display typeface meant to be used for big, bold lettering. Idler’s two “main” weights (Idler Detail and Idler Plain) can be used effectively as single colored layers on their own, but the typeface’s true potential is realized when the user layers the “shaded” weights along with the main weights to create a colorful 3D shading effect. The Idler family contains six weights all together: Idler Detail, Idler Plain, Idler Inner, Idler Highlight, Idler Shadow, & Idler Solid.
IT’S OFFICIAL: Coffee Common’s First Public Event in North America to be at A Startup Store in Chelsea Thursday January 19th – Sunday January 22
From January 19th through 22nd, a selection of the world’s best baristas will gather in Chelsea to make delicious coffee and help people understand how they can, too. Demand for quality coffee is on the rise, but a market filled with strange devices and alien vernacular can sometimes be intimidating. Luckily it’s easier than ever to find great coffees and to help you navigate all of this. Coffee Common has assembled crew of local and international baristas seeking to distill it all down so each attendee walks away equipped with the fundamentals of delicious coffee. In addition to engaging demo stations, baristas will be on hand to answer any questions, whilst serving some of the best coffees currently available from around the country. The entrance fee is $5 per a person, per a visit, to experience, learn, taste and sip some of the most amazing coffees! Starting Tuesday January 10th, tickets will be available online at astartupstore.com/events or available on site.
Coffee Common’s NYC event will be located at A Startup Store - a new story-based retail concept located in Chelsea at 144 Tenth Avenue at 19th street. Developed by Rachel Shechtman, this new venture opened weeks ago with rave reviews. Shechtman’s vision and concept is a retail environment that has the point of view of a magazine, changes like gallery, and sells things like a store. The store will reinvent itself every 4-6 weeks, changing all merchandise, décor and event programming. The store is currently in beta, and will launch officially on February 1st announcing its permanent store name and debuting a shopping exhibition called LOVE.
Coffee Common’s NYC event is unique to its Manhattan location, creating new opportunities for an evolving group of roasters and baristas to take part and engage with diverse segments of the public. In addition, a myriad of local and international brands have partnered to amplify and augment this experience. A Startup Store will be broadcasting Coffee Common in Google+ hangouts throughout the duration of the exhibition; Breville will be giving away some of its latest home brewing equipment. In addition, partners such as GiltCity and Skillshare will be offering special Coffee Common events on their sites.
The Caterpillar of the Wavy Emerald Moth (Synchlora aerata), family Geometridae, a species found throughout much of North America. The larvae feed on many plants in the family Asteraceae (like Liatris spp. and Rudbeckia spp.) as well as a variety of other flowering plants. They are known to pluck the petals from the flowers of their host plants and affix them to their backs using silk. Once the petals begin to wilt and discolor, the caterpillar discards the old petals and picks new petals, which camouflage the animal.
