Made for women, by women, the newly launched Adult magazine explores sexually explicit literature and photography— and asks, is it possible for porn to be fashionable and artistic

In lieu of a Grand Theory Of The Internet or What-It-All-Means statements that tend to accompany website rollouts, I’ll just say that we hope these changes make it even easier to discover and enjoy our original journalism.  The only goal is to make a simple experience that pleases our users and advertisers alike. (Yes, we believe it’s possible to do both at the same time. More on that in the future.) 

Yes, The Daily Beast’s homepage has a new look!

It’s very sad. But if there’s somebody who can succeed, it’s Bezos. He’s the innovator, he’s got the money and the patience, so we’ll see. I think in some ways, this may be the Post’s last chance to survive, at least in some form of what it was.

The Montreux Palace Hotel was built in an age when it was thought that things would last. It is on the very shores of Switzerland’s Lake Geneva, its balconies and iron railings look across the water, its yellow-ocher awnings are a touch of color in the winter light. It is like a great sanitarium or museum. There are Bechstein pianos in the public rooms, a private silver collection, a Salon de Bridge. This is the hotel where the novelist Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov and his wife, Véra, live. They have been here for 14 years. One imagines his large and brooding reflection in the polished glass of bookcases near the reception desk where there are bound volumes of the Illustrated London News from the year 1849 to 1887, copies of Great Expectations, The Chess Games of Greco and a book called Things Past, by the Duchess of Sermoneta.

Our team worked for six months on this amazing package on abortion, including the interactive map screen-shotted above which required hundreds of phone calls. Here’s how they did it: 

newsbeastlabs:

Last month we published a package of stories marking the fortieth anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision. It had a few moving parts but I’ll just go over some of them briefly here.

How it started

This summer you probably heard the story about the last abortion clinic in Mississippi that was threatened to close due to stricter state laws. Allison Yarrow, who sat across from me at the time, was covering the story and it got us thinking: the line “The Last Abortion Clinic in Mississippi” is attention grabbing, but it doesn’t tell the whole story. That is to say, what you really want to know is how far are people away from their nearest clinic, regardless of state boundaries. One state may have five clinics but if they’re all in the southwest corner of the state and you live in the northeast corner, and your adjoining states have multiple clinics but only at their borders farthest from you, then you’ll have a hard time getting to a clinic, even if you had many in your state. To see where this might be the case and where access to services was compounded by new restrictive provisions (over 150 nationally in the past two years) we made as close to a comprehensive database as possible of every abortion clinic. Our goal was to see what parts of the country were farthest from a clinic. From start to finish, this process took about six months…

Most of the press is pretty confident Team Obama is going to win. But what happens if they’re wrong?

Things to think about.

The filmmaker behind “Innocence of Muslims,” a film that some blame for the Middle East riots, was taken into custody. Is this the end of the First Amendment as we know it? Find out on this Trifecta.

This seethes every bit of rage I feel over this.

Some interesting commentary from the right on Nakoula Basseley Nakoula and Obama for your afternoon. For reference, here’s our cheat from when Nakoula was taken in for questioning: 

A California man widely believed to be Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was taken in by police shortly after midnight Saturday to be interviewed about his involvement in an anti-Muslim film, Innocence of Muslims, that has sparked widespread violence throughout the Middle East. He was not arrested or detained, but taken in voluntarily to speak with police. Nakoula, who claims to have been the film’s logistics manager but not its director, has in the past been convicted on bank fraud charges and may have violated his probation in uploading the controversial movie to YouTube.
