“Sacha Guitry (1885-1957) was one of the major celebrities of the French theater; here, he both wrote and starred in Jean III at the Comédie-Royale, a play in which a young prince, who just happens to dabble in amateur theatricals against the wishes of his family, jumps at the chance to play himself in a local production, with expected hilarious results. The play opened on March 7, 1912.

Cappiello’s depiction of Guitry is grounded in the caricature tradition, catching the actor’s dashing stage presence with acute insight.”

After a seven-month-long journey, NASA’s Perseverance Rover successfully touched down on the Red Planet on Feb. 18, 2021. Mission controllers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California celebrate landing NASA’s fifth — and most ambitious — rover on Mars.

A key objective for Perseverance’s mission on Mars is astrobiology, including the search for signs of ancient microbial life. The rover will characterize the planet’s geology and past climate, pave the way for human exploration of the Red Planet, and be the first mission to collect and cache Martian rock and regolith.

Also flying with Perseverance is NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter, which will attempt to show controlled, powered flight is possible in the very thin Martian atmosphere.

2022 Hyundai Kona updated with N Line sport variant

The 2022 Hyundai Kona small crossover SUV wears some minor updates that are overshadowed by the introduction of an N Line sport variant. The automaker revealed the changes to the gas and electric models on Tuesday, while touting the expansion of the N performance subbrand and the N Line trim level. 

With its turbocharged engine and cosmetic upgrades, the N Line is a first performance-oriented model for the Kona. It joins N Line versions of the Hyundai Elantra, Sonata, and Tucson, yet the Veloster N is the only true high-performance N model sold in the U.S.

Apartment in Sydney, Australia

Completely redesigned by Renjie Teoh, this inspiring apartment is located in Sydney, Australia.

Mr Miller’s brief was typical enough: more natural light and improved artificial lighting; make more storage space, free up more usable floor space, overhaul the dated apartment and give it a more “spacious” and uncluttered feel. However, he made this one condition very clear: “please do not go over the top with fancy design”.

The apartment had undergone a minor, partial renovation under the previous owner in the late 1980s that saw the kitchen relocated to its present location, but still retained most lighting, electrical and plumbing services; original fixtures and finishes from the early 1960s when the building was originally constructed. The 80s renovation work was also deteriorating badly by the time I was called in.
