Winona Ryder Asks $5 Million for Dutch Colonial San Francisco Home

Click here to read the full article.

Rich and famous folk are notorious for their itchy real estate feet, buying and selling multimillion-dollar homes with the same ease and alacrity as mere financial mortals might, say, buy a new pair of shoes or change out the baking soda box in the fridge. One exception, at least in San Francisco, is Hollywood veteran Winona Ryder, who’s owned the same home in the city’s affluent Cow Hollow neighborhood for 25 years. The “Beetlejuice” and “Heathers” icon, a two-time Oscar nominee (“The Age of Innocence” and “Little Women”) who currently stars on Netflix’s wildly popular science fiction thriller “Stranger Things,” stands to earn a small fortune on the sale of classically gambrel-roofed Dutch Colonial that she scooped up way back in 1995 for $1.3 million and now has for sale at a whiff under $5 million.

Built in 1902, the three-story home sits

Thanks to Netflix’s Sunday drop of The Crown season four, viewers the world over continue to be glued to their computer and television screens. And while the new episodes do focus largely on the arrival of Lady Diana Spencer, there would be no People’s Princess on the scene if it weren’t for Charles, the continuing heir to the British throne. In this new season, Josh O’Connor reprises his role as the Prince of Wales. For some, O’Conner’s depiction of Charles will clearly be viewed as that of a villain. But matrimonial entanglements aside, Prince Charles continues to be a figure on the world stage with his fair share of do-gooder—and design-focused—passions. 

One that has been noted widely throughout the decades is the prince’s commitment to sustainability. Another is his love of classical

Smithsonian get a Blue Angels jet

Cmdr. Frank Weisser had flown a few passes in the F/A-18C Hornet in front of the Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center on Wednesday, the jet’s engines howling. Then he landed at Dulles International Airport next door.

It was 439’s last flight.

The Navy has turned over the jet to the Smithsonian so it can be displayed with other historical aircraft in the cavernous center in Chantilly, Va. The Udvar-Hazy Center is a branch of the main museum on the Mall in downtown Washington.

The Blue Angels have replaced the Hornet, a jack-of-all-trades workhorse, with the newer and bigger Super Hornet.

“I have spent hundreds of hours flying 439,” former Blue Angels leader Capt. Eric “Popeye” Doyle said in a statement. “Whether in combat or . . . with the Blue Angels, the Hornet . . . has brought me and many of my friends home safely for

The Next Step Is Harder

With the Covid-19 virus far from eradicated, the health need for managers to work from home is expected to continue for at least another 6-12 months.  Companies large and small are now advising their employees that remote work will continue through summer 2021.  This situation is indeed, after all, going to be “a marathon and not a sprint.”

Many businesses have been successful in the work-from-home model, and by and large the results have been surprisingly acceptable.  While many of us expected simple negative effects like workers slacking, in fact a recent Bloomberg survey of 26,000 companies found that the average workday lasts 48.5 minutes longer under the new arrangement. (And has more meetings!)

So, is there a problem?  One real concern of working from home is the impact on productivity that is dependent on superior teamwork and creativity.  Earlier this
