Who Was the Falling Man from 9/11? - Falling Man Identity Revealed
The photographer has that presence of mind and has had it since he was a young man. When he was twenty-one years old, he was standing right behind Bobby Kennedy when Bobby Kennedy was shot in the head. His jacket was spattered with Kennedy's blood, but he jumped on a table and shot pictures of Kennedy's open and ebbing eyes, and then of Ethel Kennedy crouching over her husband and begging photographers—begging him—not to take pictures.

Richard Drew has never done that. Although he has preserved the jacket patterned with Kennedy's blood, he has never not taken a picture, never averted his eye. He works for the Associated Press. He is a journalist. It is not up to him to reject the images that fill his frame, because one never knows when history is made until one makes it. It is not even up to him to distinguish if a body is alive or dead, because the camera makes no such distinctions, and he is in the business of shooting bodies, as all photographers are, unless they are Ansel Adams. Indeed, he was shooting bodies on the morning of September 11, 2001.

Her mother is standing at the front door, about to go back inside her house. Her face has already lost its belligerent pride and has turned once again into a mask of composed, almost wistful sadness. "Please," she says as she closes the door in a stain of morning sunlight. "Please clear my husband's name."

Everything Alibaba Does Differently — and Better
"Of the world’s 10 most highly valued companies today, seven are internet companies with business models similar to ours. Five of them—Amazon, Google, and Facebook in the United States and Alibaba and Tencent in China—have been around barely 20 years. Why has so much value and market power emerged so quickly? Because of new capabilities in network coordination and data intelligence that all these companies put to use."

And

"Getting the technical infrastructure right is just the beginning. It took tremendous effort for us to build a common standard so that data could be used and interpreted in the same way across all of Alibaba’s business units. Additionally, figuring out the right incentive structures to persuade companies to share the data they have is an important and ongoing challenge. Much more work is needed. Of course, the degree to which companies can innovate in this area will depend in part on the rules governing data sharing in the countries they’re operating in. But the direction is very clear: The more data flows across the network, the smarter the business becomes, and the more value the ecosystem creates."

"digital companies must mobilize a network to realize their vision. To do that, their leaders have to inspire the employees, partners, and customers who make up that network. They must be visionaries and evangelists, outspoken in a way that the leaders of traditional companies do not have to be."

Tomato Soup with Puff Pastry Croutons - THE TASTE
For soup
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 onion, sliced thinly sliced
6 garlic cloves
1 bay leaf
2-3 sprigs thyme
1/2 tablespoon black peppercorns
1/4 cup tomato paste
2-1/2 lbs tomatoes cored and quartered
1/2 teaspoon white pepper

For pastry topping
4 cups half and half
Frozen puff pastry dough, thawed
1 egg
Salt

Warm a dutch oven or large pot over medium heat, and add 1/2 cup butter, onions, garlic, bay leaf, thyme, and peppercorns. Stir until the butter is fully melted and cover.
Reduce heat slightly and cook for 5 minutes, or until the onions begin to soften. The onions should not brown at all.
Once the onions are soft, add the tomato paste and cook for a minute or so, stirring to incorporate the tomato paste into the butter. Add tomatoes, salt, and ground white pepper and cover again.
Continue to cook for about 30 minutes, or until the tomatoes are very soft.
Once the tomatoes have released all of their liquid, put the mixture through the finest die of a food mill. Return to the pan and add 4 cups half and half. Return to a gentle simmer.
Adjust the seasoning to taste, and let cool 2 hours, or put in the refrigerator overnight.
To serve, fill footed soup bowls to within 1/2 inch of the top with cool or chilled soup. Make an egg wash by whisking the cracked egg with a splash of water (a tablespoon is fine). Brush the rim of each bowl with the egg wash, then place a square of puff pastry dough large enough to cover the bowl over each bowl. Press down gently and brush the tops of each bowl with the egg wash. Bake in preheated 450F degree oven for 15 minutes. If they are not golden on top, bake 5 more minutes.
Alternative: cut frozen puff pastry dough into 2 inch squares and bake on a baking sheet at 400 degrees until they are crisp and puffed. Place over warm soup for puff pastry "croutons."
