Scaling Down Recipes for Small-Batch Baking

When Mike Johnson made tiny batches of baked goods in early 2020, he did so to minimize the use of yeast and flour, which was hard to find in the early stages of the pandemic.

“It was a way for me to ration,” said Mr. Johnson, 28, the author of “Even Better Brownies: 50 Standout Bar Recipes for Every Occasion” (Page Street, 2020) and the writer of the blog Mike Bakes NYC.

“I kept it up because for a lot of people, myself included, small-batch baking just makes sense!” he said.

Mr. Johnson further simplified some of his recipes by

Quest for Hollywood Fame Splits Redditors at Heart of Market Frenzy

Late on Wednesday, a moderator of the popular Reddit message board WallStreetBets posted several screenshots on the chat app Discord. They showed that other moderators had quietly started talking among themselves about landing a movie deal.

“What’s our cut?” one of the moderators had asked in a Discord chat, according to the screenshots.

By Thursday morning, that quest for Hollywood riches had exploded into an ugly battle, giving a glimpse into the unruly nature of a suddenly famous Reddit community.

That was when the WallStreetBets moderators who were considering the film deal began booting out other moderators who had questioned

The Downside to Life in a Supertall Tower: Leaks, Creaks, Breaks

CIM Group, one of the developers, said in a statement that the building “is a successfully designed, constructed and virtually sold-out project,” and that they are “working collaboratively” with the condo board, which was run by the developers until January when residents were elected and took control. (Developers typically control condo boards in the first few years of operation.) “Like all new construction, there were maintenance and close-out items during that period,” they said. Macklowe Properties, the other developer, declined to comment.

The construction manager, Lendlease, said in a statement that they “have been in contact” with the developers, “regarding …

Jinkx Monsoon of RuPaul’s Drag Race Marries Michael Abbott

By the time they checked out, his four-string rendition of the theme to “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” had captured their heart. Days later, the pair were holding hands down the streets of England, singing at the top of their lungs. But with only two weeks before Mx. Hoffer’s U.K. tour was over, neither was sure a relationship was possible. Then, on their last night together, came a reckoning.

“It was 3 a.m. and we were pretty wasted outside a bar called Glamorous Birmingham, and it was pouring rain, and water was streaming down our faces,” Mr. Abbott said. …

Monika Tilley, Fashion Designer and Activewear Pioneer, Dies at 86

Monika Tilley, an innovative designer of activewear, loungewear and racy swimsuits that glistened from the covers of Sports Illustrated magazine on models like Christie Brinkley and Cheryl Tiegs, died on Dec. 23 in Manhattan. She was 86.

Her daughter, Mona Tilley, announced the death in January. She said her mother had died in a hospital after having multiple strokes.

Ms. Tilley was not a name designer like Bill Blass or Calvin Klein; she was an industry talent known for her work for Anne Cole, Anne Klein, White Stag and other companies, designing what would become a uniquely American style of

How to Have A Safe Super Bowl Sunday

Now ignore the left-side row and top column, and fill in the remaining 100 boxes with the names (or initials) of the party attendees. There are a variety of ways to assign and barter on squares, but we’d recommend keeping it simple by randomly assigning an equal number of squares to each participant. Remember, you can include the folks watching the game with you on Zoom.

Now go back to the squares you left blank in the top column and left-side row. Write in a number from zero to nine in each square at random, using each number only once …

Everything’s a Joke Until It’s Not

On its face, Reddit is a huge collection of forums overseen by a single private company. It inhabits a gray zone between small, intimate communities with shared expectations and norms and the mega-platforms that tend to obliterate such things. Its business is to let people gather for free, generating communities and content, and then assigning value to that content so that it can be sorted and shown to millions more people, some of whom see ads.

Maybe Reddit is where you find interesting links and watch funny videos. Perhaps it’s a place where you hang out with a small group …

In Afghanistan, Follow the White High-Tops and You’ll Find the Taliban

MAZAR-I-SHARIF, Afghanistan — The unassuming white leather high-top sneakers with green-and-yellow trim are a best seller for a roughly half-dozen shoe vendors in a sprawling bazaar in the northern city of Mazar-i-Sharif.

But they are not in demand because they’re the latest fashion trend. For many Afghans, the sneakers evoke only one emotion: fear.

That’s because they’re beloved by Taliban fighters as a status symbol even as they have become a gruesome marker of an unending war, the sneakers’ white silhouette often cutting across Afghanistan’s battlefields of dirt, sand and blood.

Called Cheetahs, the sneakers are produced by Servis Shoes,
