My name is Daniel Kinch. I also answer to Dan as well as a variety of other names (sometimes to ‘Jerry’). I studied acting in college at University of South Florida (and afterwards), but my interest is (and always was) in writing plays–I studied with the late great Jack Gelber at Brooklyn College. I’ve written […]

I’ve been invited to a number of cool events that all step off next week. I don’t know if I can get to them (because the economy is recovering), but maybe you can. The events support important causes and you can see some cool people performing. Pardon me for practicing press release journalism, but I think […]

There were also upward adjustments on previous months’ hiring. Huzzah. Would such a report have been enough to help Obama and the Democrats in last week’s elections had it come out a […]

On Election Day, I got a job as a Brooklyn, NY poll worker, which was fortuitous. I was far too busy telling voters how to insert their ballots into the scanner to keep up with developments in the electoral auto da fe that hit most of the US. Some of the news was really shocking–I […]

Friday’s news photos of NYPD members dumping Ebola-exposed hazmat suits from Dr. Spencer’s apartment […]

Apologies for taking a hiatus. I have two or three posts waiting final touches. Stories about New York and transit, about Ebola scares and Climate Disruption. But those had to wait. On Sunday the 26th, I rode the Tour de Bronx. It’s a bicycle tour through New York’s least storied borough. Scenery includes the Bronx […]

An emerging methane feedback in the Arctic. It’s something that, since last summer, I’ve been calling the Arctic Methane Monster. A beast of a thing composed of giant reserves of sea bed methane and an immense store of carbon locked away in Arctic tundra. How dangerous and vicious the monster ends…

On Friday’s Sex And Politics, I’ll be talking to Richard Heinberg. Richard is Senior Fellow-in-Residence of the Post Carbon Institute and has written extensively on the topic of Peak Oil, authoring 11 books on the topic since he began speaking about it in 2002. We’ll be focusing on his book Snake Oil: How Fracking’s False Promise of […]
