Relaxing in San Miguel

By Jade Arroyo Let’s start the day with the best attitude. Bread and coffee for breakfast? In La Mesa Grande you’ll find a relaxed, very comfortable vibe, with long communal tables that invite friendship. There are all kinds of sweet and savory baked breads: sandwiches, bagels, scones, and more. The coffee is good and loaded; [...]

Where to Stay in Koh Yao Noi, Thailand

Wherever We May Roam By Leslie Patrick Moore, Photos by Steven Moore Photography A mere speck of an island east of Phuket in the Andaman Sea, Koh Yao Noi is a one-horse town, where the biggest news in decades was the opening of a 7–11 in the village square.

Fish evolved from primitive chordates during the Cambrian explosion, about five hundred forty million years ago. Striking adaptions [...]

The Netflix Paradigm

The Computer Corner By Charles Miller Continuing with last week’s editorial, it remains a source of mass confusion as to why Netflix has taken steps to deny service to so many thousands, perhaps millions, of its international customers.
