When we set out to design the first two digital magazines at Yahoo, Yahoo Food and Yahoo Tech, we knew we wanted an immersive experience with the content front and center. We saw these traits in the design for Flickr, where large images are shown in an expansive grid view:

AP PHOTOS: AP revisits Boston bombing sites


Life has resumed on the streets of Boston.

A year after three people were killed and more than 260 injured when two bombs went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, the city’s landscape bears few reminders of the explosions, or the ensuing manhunt for suspects that ended with the capture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in Watertown.

On Boylston Street, the chaos and pain of that day have been replaced by the regular routines of pedestrians and drivers. Businesses are open, including the Forum restaurant, badly damaged when one bomb exploded directly outside.

This week, barricades and a viewing stand are set up near the finish line for this year’s marathon, set for Monday.

Just down the street, Copley Square became home to a spontaneous memorial. The items, including running shoes and messages, were removed in June. Some are now on view in an exhibit across the street at the Boston Public Library.

A few days after the bombing, Tsarnaev eluded capture after a gunbattle with police. Residents of Boston and surrounding communities were told to stay indoors while police went house to house searching for him. His brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, died following the shootout with police.

Today, those neighborhoods are quiet again. (AP)

The Sad, Slow Death of America’s Retail Workforce

Retail sales just notched their best month since 2012 and the industry has added almost one million jobs since 2010. But the rosy headline stats obscure a more complex and potentially troubling story in retail—particularly for its employees.  
The business of selling stuff is becoming much more efficient. Sales-per-employee have gone from $12,00 to $25,000 in the last two decades. That means that even as consumers spend more, we need fewer workers to stock shelves and process orders.

陳為廷重申,不可能忘記323晚上,在行政院院區、黑暗當中,面對赤裸裸的排水車、鎮暴部隊,還有前所未有成長時沒有體驗過的赤裸裸國家的暴力,「我們會記得那天晚上我們的憤怒與恐懼,我會記得在那一天我們間的猜疑與試煉」。更不會忘記330那天50萬人淹沒的街道,讓這個政權看見台灣的人民,幾十個城市響應這個活動的人民,所有人的團結與意志,也不會忘記。雖然還沒有成功,但也沒失敗。
