Mardi Gras @ Randa NYO


Can you identify the mystery woman in the mask?

--------------------------------------------------------------------


Mardi Gras is a festival celebrating the events of Carnival, commencing on or after Epiphany and concluding on the day before Ash Wednesday, known as “Fat Tuesday”, in recognition of the copious fatty foods enjoyably consumed prior fasting for Lent, and not technically endorsed by the Randa Wellness program.

At Randa’s Design Center in Como, Italy Mardi Gras is called Martedi Grasso, it is the main event of Carnvale which originated in Ancient Rome during the festival of Saturn.

Importantly, Randa’s Logistics Hub in New Orleans is located at the heart and soul of American Mardi Gras.  Mardi Gras arrived in North America in the late 1600’s with the Le Moyne brothers who were sent by King Louis XIV to defend France’s claim on the territory of Louisiana. In New Orleans, Mardi Gras has expanded to become synonymous with the city and embraced by all residents. Mardi Gras celebrations are the root of the slogan, “Laissez les bons temps rouler,” or “Let the good times roll.”

May you find the baby in the King cake and may you have a great year.

3D Printed Dinner & Neckwear

Dinner Is Printed By A. J. JACOBS - New York Times
THE hype over 3-D printing intensifies by the day. Will it save the world? Will it bring on the apocalypse, with millions manufacturing their own AK-47s? Or is it all an absurd hubbub about a machine that spits out chintzy plastic trinkets? I decided to investigate. My plan: I would immerse myself in the world of 3-D printing. I would live for a week using nothing but 3-D-printed objects — toothbrushes, furniture, bicycles, vitamin pills — in order to judge the technology’s potential and pitfalls.
I approached Hod Lipson, a Cornell engineering professor and one of the nation’s top 3-D printing experts, with my idea. He thought it sounded like a great project. It would cost me a mere $50,000 or so. Unless I was going to 3-D print counterfeit FabergĂ© eggs for the black market, I’d need a Plan B. Which is how I settled on the idea of creating a 3-D-printed meal. I’d make 3-D-printed plates, forks, place mats, napkin rings, candlesticks —…
