Dana Gordon was the Deputy Director of our Research Center from 1996 to 2008, leaving Newsweek just as she was getting married to her husband, Steve Dzik. She was an incredibly positive person, even as she received a diagnosis this past November of aggressive uterine cancer. Everyone who’s ever met her will remember her smile (ever-present) and her singsong voice — she was a walking melody. She died this past Thursday morning, after a brief but brave battle. Our thoughts are with her friends and family.

I think the reports of my survival may be exaggerated. I’m in Babo Amr. Sickening, trying to understand how the world can stand by and I should be hardened by now. Watched a baby die today. Shrapnel, doctors could do nothing. His little tummy just heaved and heaved until it stopped. Feeling helpless. As well as cold! Will keep trying to get out the information.
Slain reporter Marie Colvin’s last dispatch, posted to a Facebook group for conflict journalists and rights reporters. She was killed this morning in a mortar attack.

A video profile of the french journalist ‪Gilles Jacquier‬, who was killed today while covering a pro-government rally in Syria. Jacqueir was one of many journalists in a pack being led by government representatives, and they were allegedly interviewing people when mortar shells began to fall around them. The majority ran into a nearby house. Jacquier didn’t make it. This video is in French, so we don’t know what they’re saying. If anyone speaks French, feel free to reblog with a quick one-line translation so we can get to know a bit more about him.

The AP reports: “Karl Slover, one of the last surviving actors who played Munchkins in the 1939 classic film, “The Wizard of Oz,” has died. He was 93.” Above, the five surviving actors who played Munchkins in 1939’s Wizard of Oz—celebrating its 70th anniversary in October 2009, reveal set secrets and reflect on their roles in the Oscar-nominated film.

As long as I can find some speed and keep up with the pack, I’ll do everything I can to put on a show.

“From early on we wanted a product that would seem so natural and so inevitable and so simple you almost wouldn’t think of it as having been designed,” says Apple’s industrial designer. This austerity extended to the whiteness of the iPod, a double-crystal polymer Antarctica, a blankness that screams in brilliant colors across a crowded subway. “It’s neutral, but it is a bold neutral, just shockingly neutral,” says Ive.
Assessing the final product, Jobs bestows, for him, the ultimate accolade: “It’s as Apple as anything Apple has ever done.”
