Oheka Castle

Location: Huntington, New York

This luxurious estate might look very familiar to some since it has been featured in a number of movies, television shows, commercials, and music videos. Its lush grounds and architectural design served as inspiration for Jay Gatsby’s extravagant home in Fitzgerald’s novel as well as the 2013 movie, The Great Gatsby. Most recently, it has been featured in Taylor Swift’s stunning video for her latest single, “Blank Space”. The mansion is also a popular venue for weddings, which on average, costs a whopping $100,000. 

Oheka Castle, also known as the Otto Kahn Estate, is located on the North Shore of Long Island, in Huntington, New York. It was the country home of financier and philanthropist Otto Kahn. He and his wife, Addie Wolff, built the mansion as a summer home, where they hosted lavish parties and regularly entertained royalty, heads of state, and Hollywood stars. It is currently the second largest private home in the United States, comprised of 127 rooms and over 109,000 square feet.

So, those who know me well know that I love learning. I especially love the space race of the 50s and 60s. Most of my heroes are astronauts, from all over the world, but every now and then, I’ll rediscover someone from behind the scenes. This last while, it’s been Gene Kranz, who was instrumental on getting the crew of Apollo 13 home. He was a flight director on a lot of NASA’s missions and one of the unique quirks about him was his wife used to make him hand made vests. His vest from Apollo 13 was white and now sits art the Smithsonian Museum. My favourite vest of his was the one he wore for Apollo 17…

We need to recognise how important it is for young gymnasts and young women to be able to see themselves represented and celebrated. Simone, Gabby, Morgan and all the other non-white team members and medalists show young women who might feel like they aren’t capable of winning because they’d don’t look like Nastia that it’s totally possible. And for all the rest of the girls it’s a reminder of how the diversity and uniqueness of the USA team and international gymnastics is our strength.

Le président français ne doit pas apprendre l'anglais pour plaire aux USA mais parce que l'anglais est une langue "internationale" et donc parler l'anglais permet de pouvoir communiquer avec le monde entier et non uniquement avec les USA. Certes les interprètes existent, mais le président peut être amené à avoir des discussions où les interprètes ne sont pas toujours là. (Discussions plus privées ou imprévues, dans un cadre plus intime et plus confidentiel par exemple).

Oui, bien dit. Mais ça me fait quand même chier un peu, quand je vois à quel point les USA sont nuls en langues par rapport au reste du monde qui doit apprendre l’anglais comme langue étrangère ; ça m’en donne honte.

International anon here. We don’t use the term POC so I don’t really understand why this is even an issue lol. Would love to get your insight.

well I am white, so I really don’t want to overstep and interpret anything wrong, if anyone wants to help this anon that’d be great. I will add this from @bitcherovas: “The term POC was specifically created to talk about shared experiences of people who aren’t white.”

also from an anon: “We need to recognise how important it is for young gymnasts and young women to be able to see themselves represented and celebrated. Simone, Gabby, Morgan and all the other non-white team members and medalists show young women who might feel like they aren’t capable of winning because they’d don’t look like Nastia that it’s totally possible.
