Tough times don't last, tough men do!
The only certainty in life is the uncertainty of life. When you have an option, choose the best one. When you don't have an option, do your best. If you are positive enough, you will still see the good things in bad times. Every cloud has a silver lining! LQ Chiam explains.
Living less with the car
BY PAUL OSBORNE
@ VOL 15
ON MAR 16, 2018
York remains a unique and attractive city, in part because it has always sought to deter cars from entering the city centre. The historic core has been preserved by pedestrianisation, cycle routes, car parking policies, and park and ride. But as the city grows, how do we nurture the city’s wider neighbourhoods to become less car reliant? Paul Osborne discusses how can developers tempt us with car-free living rather than automated double garage doors? And what do we all stand to gain from living less with the car?

Less is More
BY ROBERT HOOKE
@ VOL 23
ON MAR 16, 2018
Robert Hooke, who sculpts in stone and bronze, has exhibited in the US, Europe, Australia, and South Africa. Robert served four years as an officer in the Navy, including a year in Vietnam where he was awarded the Bronze Star and Navy Commendation Medal. While working on Wall Street, he studied sculpture with Herbert Kallem at the School of Visual Arts. Robert’s business career took him to London in the mid-seventies, where he continued making sculpture and had his first show at the Alwyn Sculpture Gallery off Bond Street. He returned to the US in 2009 and made his way to Sag Harbor, where he continues to create. Art critic Eric Ernst said, “Hooke elicits secrets from his silent figures by understanding the obvious and emphasizing the inferred.” Robert’s work emphasizes stance, the body position assumed by instinct or purpose, while adhering to the famous quote of Miles Davis: “Creativity is not the notes you put in, but the notes you leave out”.
