Today we celebrate the birthday of American fashion designer, Bonnie Cashin. As designer for her own brand and as Coach’s first Creative Director, Cashin pioneered many influential fashion concepts, including layered dressing and loose-fitting, unstructured garments. Inspired by her 1940s convertible car, she introduced the turnkey lock for Coach that is still featured on their handbags today. This short coat illustrates Cashin’s signature use of mohair, leather, and metal closures.

“I’m not a turnkey here, Miss Starling. I don’t come running down here at night just to let people in and out. I had a ticket to Holiday on Ice.”

[Chilton] realized he’d said a ticket. In that instant, Starling saw his life, and he knew it.

She saw his bleak refrigerator, the crumbs on the TV tray where he ate alone, the still piles his things stayed in for months until he moved them - she felt the ache of his whole yellow-smiling Sen-Sen lonesome life - and switchblade-quick she knew not to spare him, not to talk or look away. She stared into his face, and with the smallest tilt of her head, she gave him her good looks and bored her knowledge in, speared him with it, knowing he couldn’t stand for the conversation to go on.“

—  Thomas Harris' Silence of the Lambs – the full quote of the only scene where we see just how godawfully lonely Chilton is

An Anchorage startup company has found a new use for the refrigerated container vans that once brought perishable items to Alaska, repurposing them to create transportable hydroponic gardens that can produce leafy greens year-round in northern communities.

The co-founders of Vertical Harvest Hydroponics hope the heavily insulated 40-foot units, resembling trailer homes without windows, will help fill a commercial niche in a state where nearly all lettuce, kale and herbs are imported, sometimes arriving at remote locations rotten and weeks old.

“Right now, we cannot grow year-round in Alaska but this gives you the ability to do that 365 days a year,” said Linda Janes, one of the company’s three co-founders.
