In fact the terminal illness from which some people suffer is the arrogant narcissism that calling something "art" entitles them to supposedly enhance our appreciation of the natural world by intruding their dim and dreary constructions into it. It's the people who consider this a cool or worthwhile "art project" who should have been wrapped in macrame and left on a boulder for a couple of weeks.

Right, the natural landscape is so god-damned ugly on its own, it needs to be improved by wrapping it in your grandmother's lap blanket.

The U.S. Supreme Court has in effect decided that an occasional massacre is a price worth paying for its twisted and indecent reading of the Constitution. All that's left is a bit of tinkering at the margins, and although one can hope for that at least, the record of insanity by Republican-dominated state legislatures across the country, even in the wake of other atrocities, doesn't allow for much optimism.

No one will be living in these things. They're temporary work spaces. Permanent work spaces will be included in the final project. Whether artists find any of this useful will be for them to decide, not condescending irrelevances like Holly.

The anecdotal testimonials are just that, but the links should have been included in the article, along with some context on other postural techniques and what makes this specific approach different, other than appeals to the author's supposed insights into what nature and evolution intended and her explorations in ancient wisdom and comparative anthropology.
According to the Univ of Utah website, the expertise of Helen Barkan (sic) is in surgical treatment for intractable epilepsy. As for her claim that this is the "greatest contribution" to anything other than the marketing of another self-help scheme that might in some cases do more good than doing nothing, we'll await the studies in the appropriate peer-reviewed journals.

Only a monotonous fool riding to endless battle on a broken hobbyhorse would think that was an appropriate comment to an article on a postural treatment for back pain, so I'm glad I'm not the one who wrote it.

If I wrote, "It's been said that loonpt is an idiot for dragging his anti-government fixation into even the most irrelevant contexts," it would be unfair to you if I didn't included who said it and why I considered that person a reliable judge in such matters.
