You oughta know -- a stage musical featuring Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill is officially a go.The singer-songwriter's iconic 1995 album will be the basis of a new production debuting at Cambridge's American Repertory in May 2018. Directed by Diane Paulus (Waitress), the show will include orchestrations and arrangements by Tom Kitt (Next to Normal) and a book by Diablo Cody, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Juno who also co-created the series United States of Tara and One Mississippi. It will be Cody's Broadway debut."This team that has come together for this Jagged Little Pill musical is my musical theatre dream come true,” said Morissette in a statement. “The chemistry between all of us is crackling and I feel honored to be diving into these songs again, surrounded by all of thi

Idina Menzelis taking on Jagged Little Pill.The Tony-winning actress will lead an upcoming reading of the new stage musical built around Alanis Morissette’siconic 1995 album, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.Though participating in the Actors' Equity reading, Menzel won't be in the debut run of the show at Cambridge's American Repertory in May 2018, as she's set to star in Joshua Harmon's off-Broadway play Skintight. However, the show — development of which was first announced in 2013 — is believed to be eyeing an eventual Broadway debut. As with Matthew Morrison in Finding Neverland and Phillipa Soo in Amelie, actors who lead shows' early workshops occasionally return to star in their Broadway runs.Directed by Diane Paulus (Waitress), Jagged Little Pill will include orchestrations and

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope is famous for its jaw-dropping snapshots of the cosmos. At first glance this Picture of the Week appears to be quite the opposite, showing just a blur of jagged spikes, speckled noise, and weird, clashing colors—but once you know what you are looking at, images like this one are no less breathtaking.

'voice of a generation' mellowed but not dulled

MUSICALANIS MORISSETTE ★★★½Palais Theatre, St Kilda, January 23It's been nearly 20 years since, at the height of her fame off the back of breakthrough album Jagged Little Pill, Alanis Morissette toured Australia.
Morissette still sports her trademark long locks and centre part. Photo: SuppliedThe phenomenon of Alanis in the '90s can't be overstated – her raw, charged, personal and political songs earned her hyperbolic praise such as the "voice of a generation" – not to mention multiple Grammy Awards and some 75 million records sold.But the initial rush did not last; none of her subsequent albums achieved anywhere near the success of Jagged Little Pill, and my 24-year-old colleague didn't know who she was.The first show of Morissette's brief tour of Sydney and Melbourne saw thousands floc

ancient fish scales and vertebrate teeth share an embryonic origin

Credit: Andrew Gillis, Gillis LabIn biology, one long-running debate has teeth: whether ancient fish scales moved into the mouth with the origin of jaws, or if the tooth had its own evolutionary inception.
Recent studies on species such as zebrafish showed scales and teeth developing from distinctly different clusters of cells in fish embryos, pouring cold water on 'teeth from scales' theories.However, while most fish in the sea have bones, one ancient lineage - sharks, skates and rays - possess skeletons made entirely of cartilage.These cartilaginous fish retain some primitive characteristics that have been lost in their bony counterparts, including small spiky scales embedded in their skin

nasa's curiosity rover is just a speck in this orbiter photo

At this distance, Curiosity looks like a tiny beetle crawling over volcanic rock. Electric blue, its protective shell stands out against the rough, jagged mountainside. In reality, this is an image shot by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, an observational craft floating 200 miles above the planet's surface. We have, of course, seen Curiosity countless times before — it has a thing for selfies — but rarely from afar. In this photograph, you get a real sense of the planet's natural beauty and how empty, or quiet it must seem compared to Earth. Not that Curiosity minds, of course.

camera on nasa's lunar orbiter survived 2014 meteoroid hit

On Oct. 13, 2014 something very strange happened to the camera aboard NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO). The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC), which normally produces beautifully clear images of the lunar surface, produced an image that was wild and jittery. From the sudden and jagged pattern apparent in the image, the LROC team determined that the camera must have been hit by a tiny meteoroid, a small object in space.

google doodle: argentina's los glaciares national park is 80

Argentina's Los Glaciares National Park turned 80 years old Thursday, and Google created a new Doodle to mark the occasion.Established on May 11, 1937, the park is Argentina's largest, and is also home to the country's biggest lake, Lake Argentino. It's best known, however, for the giant ice cap that covers 30% of the 2,807-square-mile park.The ice cap is the largest in the world outside of Antarctica and Greenland, it feeds a total of 47 large glaciers. Perito Moreno Glacier is the most famous of these, and is the inspiration behind the Doodle.Set deep in the South of Argentinian Patagonia, Los Glaciares is home to jagged-toothed Mount Fitz Roy, which became the basis for the Patagonia brand's logo after founder Yvon Chouinard ascended the peak in 1968.In 1981, the national park was decla

unearth ancient secrets in after the end: forsaken destiny

After the End: Forsaken Destiny ($3.99) by NEXON M Inc. is a puzzle adventure game that will definitely give your brain a workout while providing some stunning eye candy. If you enjoyed games like Monument Valley and Causality, but want some adventure thrown into the mix like Lara Croft GO, then After the End: Forsaken Destiny is the game for you.Even though most of my time lately is going towards The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild on my new Nintendo Switch, every now and then I like to go back to my iPhone for some games as a break from the vast open world of Zelda. When it comes to my iOS gaming time, I usually prefer something that is relaxing but stimulating at the same time, so that my mind stays sharp. For these moments, puzzles are always my go-to choice, but I also like an adv

art of gravity mesmerizes through beautiful destruction

Visually, Art of Gravity is beautifully abstract, just as it was intended to be. If you are a big fan of how the graphics are in Minecraft, then you will love Art of Gravity’s visuals. The game is fully rendered in 3-D with blocky objects that eventually break down into even smaller blocks, and the sphere that you’ll be working with is also rather jagged and blocky, which only completes the theme. The background features vibrant, somewhat muted colors that contrast nicely with the blocks in the foreground, and the particle effects when large blocks get smashed are hypnotic and mesmerizing. All animations are smooth and fluid with no lag on my iPhone 7. There’s a rather subtle ambient soundtrack that plays in the background, but it’s definitely not too noticeable. The sound effects of the b

the makeshift challenge: save a man stuck in a fissure

by Lee D. Zlotoff[MakeShift was a column and competition, by MacGyver creator Lee Zlotoff, that ran in Make: magazine for its first five years. This challenge appeared in Make: Volume 07, 2007]The Scenario:You set off on a solo backpacking jaunt one blissfully free weekend, in search of a legendary mountain hot spring that has remained pristine thanks to the 12-plus-hour climb it takes to reach it. A well-earned sweat topped off with nothing but silence, solitude, and hot water – what’s not to like?Just as your topo map indicates that you’re within minutes of the spring, you hear an agonized shouting from somewhere off of the rocky trail. You quickly discover a large, cylindrical fissure in the ground, about 15 feet in diameter and about 20 feet deep, at the bottom of which lies a rather l

nasa goes back to the middle ages for its rover tire design

Curiosity's wheels have taken a lot of damage because they don't have much give, and Mars rocks can be particularly jagged. NASA's new chainmail type material, on the other hand, provides a lot more flexibility, while still being difficult to penetrate, as shown in the video below. In another configuration, the material could also be useful to NASA as an all-purpose, lightweight heat and debris shield for orbiting spacecraft.It's not just the chainmail-style configuration that makes the tires work, though. They're also built from alloys like nickel-titanium (NiTi) that can deform up to 10 percent deformation without losing their shape. "The use of a NiTi shape memory alloy yield a superelastic tire that is virtually impervious to plastic deformation," according to the team at NASA's Glenn

samsung’s budget phones are cheap, but that’s not enough

Let's first look at what's inside these subpar Galaxy-branded phones. In addition to a 1.6GHz octa-core processor and an 8-megapixel rear camera, the Galaxy J7 packs a 5.5-inch display that has a resolution of merely ... . As our own Chris Velazco put it, "You'll cut your eyes on those jagged edges." The J7's one redeeming feature is that you can swap out its removable 3,300mAh battery, although if that's all the phone has going for it you might as well swap out the handset altogether.Things get really bleak when you compare the J7's specs with other phones at the same price (or in some cases, that are cheaper). In that range, you have the Huawei Honor 6x ($200), the Moto G5 Plus ($230) and the ZTE Blade V8 Pro ($230), which all offer sharper 1080p displays. The Honor and Blade both sport

safari kart brings kart racing action to ios

Visually, Safari Kart looks like an older Wii or PlayStation 2 title, due to the rough and jagged edges of the 3-D rendered objects and environments. The textures of the roads are also a bit dated, compared to other iOS games that are available. In general, Safari Kart’s graphics have a bit of a low-poly aesthetic, but personally, I just find that it adds to the charm of the game — these are karts, not exotic sports car racing we’re talking about. The color palette in Safari Kart has a nice range, as it features plenty of bold and vibrant hues as well as earthy tones, depending on the environment you’re racing through. Animations are fairly smooth and fluid, with no lag or choppiness on my iPhone 7. There’s an upbeat and eccentric soundtrack to go along with each track, and the sound effec

swing through temples and treasure in swing king & the temple of bling

Visually, Swing King carries an awesome 16-bit retro aesthetic due to the pixelated art style, and this definitely takes me back to the golden days of gaming. While Swing King has pixel art, it’s modernized so that it looks incredibly smooth, and not jagged like older games. The color palette features a wide range of hues, ranging from bright and vibrant shades to much more muted, earthy tones, depending on the area that you manage to make your way to. Character sprites for Mumbles the Monkey and all of the other critters you’ll encounter on your journey are cute and easy to spot amidst the chaos. Animations are velvety and fluid, with no lag on my iPhone 7. The game also has an upbeat and quirky chiptune soundtrack that is fun to listen to, and just adds to the overall charm of this chall

shoot and blast your way through the secrets of morphite

Visually, Morphite is unique with a low-poly design that seems rather trendy lately. This means that the environments are a bit rough and jagged, and the faces of characters are not too detailed. Everything is rendered in 3D, and overall, Morphite is giving me a bit of a Metroid feel. The game has a nice range of colors, from muted earthy tones to bright and vibrant neons. Animations are smooth and fluid on my iPhone 7, so I did not experience any lag while playing the game. There's an atmospheric and captivating soundtrack in the background, and the sound effects and voice acting is done well.

kelly clarkson 'cried a lot' while making new album

Returning to the recording studio after having her second child, Kelly Clarkson said she “cried a lot.”Clarkson has two young children with husband Brandon Blackstock — 1 year-old Remington Alexander and 3-year-old River Rose. She says she intentionally got back to music fairly quickly after each child was born, “just to be productive in a different way.”“Obviously it’s very productive making a human,” she said. “I needed something outside of that — almost as a bit of an escape. And then come back (home) and you’re like so in love with the moment again.” But as the tears began to fall, the former American Idol winner had to work to shape her jagged sensitivity into the lyrics and soulful songs that would become her eighth studio album, Meaning of Life.“I possibly went back too early after

failed star orbits a dead star every 71 minutes

K2 lightcurve (black jagged curve) folded about a period of 71.23 minutes. The red curve represents a simple geometrical model with a 5-minute long total eclipse and a 9% contribution to emulate an illumination effect on the companion star. The blue curve is the fit to the model based on the length of the K2 observations. Credit: Bishop's UniversityAn international team of astronomers using data from the rejuvenated Kepler space telescope have discovered a rare gem: A binary system consisting of a failed star, also known as a brown dwarf, and the remnant of a dead star known as a white dwarf. And one of the properties that makes this binary so remarkable is that the orbital period of the two objects is only 71.2 minutes. This means that the speeds of the stars as they orbit each other are

‘horses are the magic that’s changed my life’: the book all horse lovers should

Finding time to settle down with a book in the midst of the competition season might sound unlikely.

At the age of just 16, the author’s mother had a riding accident on an icy November morning that left her first in a coma, and then with such severe head injuries that she lived out the rest of her life in a home with round-the-clock care.“I cannot look back on my life without seeing a jagged dark scar through the moment that separates the time immediately before the ac
