Those included even Stephens, who has vaulted from No. 957 in early August, post injury, to No. 4 this coming Monday and whose statements included, “She raised her game, raised her level,” and how “the better player won the match today,” as well as “no one else in the world I’d rather lose to,” and, “It’s a beautiful thing, very special.” They included Darren Cahill, an Australian former player and her coach, who saw “a magical moment for her, and she did it the hard way, against a great opponent.”.
Virtual reality headsets, like the Oculus Rift, create escapes. Put one on, and you suddenly swimming with dolphins or fighting in the Battle of Waterloo. Microsoft HoloLens, by contrast, augments reality holograms and data onto existing surroundings, so you not to the virtual world, as designer Alex Kipman puts it.

Leclaireur, meaning “scout” or “guide” in French, may garner much less publicity than 10 Corso Como, Colette and their ilk, but that’s because Hadida likes it that way. He thinks to be a real cult store (while I’m interviewing him in the biggest of his five Paris shops, a customer who lives between Dubai and Lebanon is so overcome at seeing the owner of what he declares his “favourite store in the whole world” that he comes over to have a hug and a selfie) you need people to make a little bit of an effort to discover you. There is no sign outside his Rue Hrold shop near the Place des Victoires, and no windows; only insiders know that there is a small bell on a side wall that gives admittance to a vast cave of highly individual merchandise of every kind.
Adding to this chorus are financial economists Anat Admati and Martin Hellwig with an important new book calledThe Banker New Clothes, which offers what the Dodd Frank legislation mostly lacked: a simple and elegant solution to the problem of financial stability. They argue that banks should fund themselves with more equity and less debt or, to put it bluntly, that banks should risk more of their own money, and less of everyone else don want to do that, because they generally fund their operations with disproportionate amounts of debt, and they maintain that their profitability as well as our economy growth depends on their continuing to do so. The central point of Admanti and Hellwig book is that these protestations are like the emperor new clothes: There simply nothing there.
