Statuette of Sobek, Ancient Egyptian, -664

Statuette of Sobek, Ancient Egyptian, -664, Art Institute of Chicago: Arts of Africa

Here the crocodile god Sobek, associated with water and the Nile River, wears an elaborate crown adorned with horns, feathers, and a uraeus (sacred serpent). Egyptian gods were commonly depicted with human bodies and animal heads. The animal referred to the god’s personality or characteristics, not his or her appearance. For example, the crocodile head of Sobek alludes to his fierceness.

Statuettes like these were offered to the gods to ask for their help or in thanks for their assistance. Gift of Henry H. Getty, Charles L. Hutchinson, and Robert H. Fleming Size: 16.7 × 4.5 × 5 cm (6 5/8 × 1 7/8 × 2 in.) Medium: Copper alloy

Vintage Airliners: Pan American, Boeing 747

Pan American World Airways, originally founded as Pan American Airways[1] and commonly known as Pan Am, was the principal and largest international air carrier and unofficial flag carrier of the United States from 1927 until its collapse on December 4, 1991. It was founded in 1927 as a scheduled airmail and passenger service operating between Key West, Florida, and Havana, Cuba.

The airline is credited for many innovations that shaped the international airline industry, including the widespread use of jet aircraft, jumbo jets, and computerized reservation systems.[2] It was also a founding member of the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the global airline industry association.[3]

Review update: 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid proves leaders innovate

“Artists lead and hacks ask for a show of hands,” Steve Jobs said in the biopic of the same name. Like Jobs, Ford’s leading the pickup race with the innovative 2021 F-150 Hybrid while the other truck makers are hacking to keep pace.

Ford spokesperson Dawn McKenzie told me that customers didn’t ask for a generator to be integrated into their pickup truck, but Ford did it anyway. That may not be artistry, but it’s certainly leadership.

Don’t be fooled. The 2021 Ford F-150 isn’t new, but it didn’t need to be. It’s heavily updated with a long list of powertrain options, features, and the latest technology. In short, it’s leading the pack, again.

It wins on a lot of fronts. It bests every full-size truck competitor with a TCC Rating of 6.6 out of 10 thanks to its Baskin Robbins-like configuration options, hybrid powertrain, and standard advanced safety technology. But, it gets expensive real fast, the interior still isn’t as nice as the Ram 1500, and some of the neat tricks might cost you later.

I spent a week with the 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid taking the kids to school, picking up groceries, and running errands to learn where this innovator hits and misses.
