“Napping is still often stigmatized, for example by being associated with illness or a lack of ambition.
But many people, and experts, praise the benefits of a siesta or a power snooze. Confessed nappers include Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill, Thomas Edison and Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton.
Napping, writes James B. Maas, a Cornell University sleep expert, “should have the status of daily exercise.”
Mammals that divide their day between two distinct periods — sleep and wakefulness — are in the minority, according to the National Sleep Foundation, which pointed out on its Web site: “While naps do not necessarily make up for inadequate or poor quality nighttime sleep, a short nap of 20-30 minutes can help to improve mood, alertness and performance.”
“A lot of city dwellers see their sidewalks as essential to their neighborhood. But what do you do when residents openly reject sidewalks — and mount a campaign to keep them off their streetscapes? We talk with architect and urban planner Roger K. Lewis about what the debate over sidewalks in several D.C. neighborhoods says about public space and self-identity.

Some of the links to articles on it I saw seem to indicate that the Mac got the character in 2002. But this character (as a quote) has been around for some time. You just needed to know the key command (option-]) to get it. But I think the Mac got Hawaiian in 2002 as a character palette with this form as a character in the alphabet for that palette. That makes more sense.
OK, I don’t have a Hawai‘ian character palette so, sorry if I made any mistakes!
DS: Right, I’ve read that you’ve said photography really isn’t a great medium for story telling, and so is that where your frustrations stem from?
AS: Well, that photography is just not good for storytelling, yes. I also just think photography was much more interesting 50 plus years ago, and now there is just this overabundance of photography. It’s like saying “What type of art do you do?” “Oh, I do Twitter.” (laughter). I just put these little fragments out in the world, but I would rather call myself a novelist than a Twitterist. And I sometimes feel photography is that.
