Duluth Lynchings Online Resource

A Lynching Memorial Unveiled in Duluth: "The dedication drew thousands of people from all over the area. The emotional high point came with a speech by Warren Read, a fourth-grade teacher from Kingston, Wash., who had learned while researching his family that his great-grandfather had helped lead the mob that stormed the local jail and took the three men, who were circus workers, from their cells. His voice choking with emotion, he apologized to the victims and their families."

The New York Review of Books: It's Only a Movie: "When they first came out, I enjoyed the structural cleverness of Pulp Fiction, the comfortable plot machinery of Jackie Brown, the taut, depraved claustrophobia of Reservoir Dogs. And yet when I saw them again recently, I was surprised to find myself bored by all three. In the end, they feel wholly disposable?they're not really about any of the elements they are made up of (crime, guilt, race, violence, even other movies), and it occurs to you that Tarantino doesn't have any ideas about them either. He just thinks they're neat things to build a movie around. "

Wired 8.12: Monsters in a Box: "Ford Engineering Computer Center

APPLICATION: Car crash and vehicle dynamics simulations HARDWARE: 2 Cray T-90s, 3 C-90s, and 5 SV1s POWER: 260 gigaflops PRICE: $100 million - $150 million
The largest customer for Cray's top-of-the-line machines, Ford Motor Company also runs a wide range of other brands that crash constantly - in simulations, that is. To save the lives of thousands of crash-test dummies, not to mention humans, the car and truck maker puts new designs through their paces at engineering computer centers in Dearborn, Michigan; Dunton, England; and Merkenich, Germany. The results of these digital demolition derbies, plus noise tests and vehicle dynamics analyses, are stored on 17 terabytes of disk space.
Ford's goal: To shorten development cycles through the increased use of computer techniques. Says Nick Smither, director of product development systems: 'All of our analysis and design work is done based on mathematical models, although we still crash cars to get final verification.' "
