    Human connection, the kind that begins with a nervous hello and transforms strangers into family, lies at the core of Jordan Casteel’s artistic practice. “What does it mean to come outside of oneself into someone else and understand the common grounds, or even the differences, that might exist?” she said. Jordan has attracted widespread acclaim for colossal portraits of friends and neighbors, works celebrated for their tenderness, keen social commentary and technical brio. Now nearly 40 works spanning 7 years — exclusively portraying people of color — are on display at the New Museum as part of her first institutional show.

    “This solo is sort of like an atomic top,” said the @nycballet principal @dpulbricht of this moment in “Rodeo: Four Dance Episodes,” an energizing, mostly male ballet by the choreographer @justin_peck. It requires just the right balance of force and musical timing, Daniel said, for it to be “a top that continues to go until it resolves itself with that catch at the very end.” We don’t see Daniel leap and fall backward into the arms of his comrades as he would onstage, but his momentum is apparent: “Each landing becomes a takeoff for the next move, so a domino effect ends up happening,” he said. All the while he fights for clarity, which is a change from when he first performed the solo in 2015. “I would go for it and go for it, and I now can use a vehicle like this to just pump the brake a little bit,” Daniel told the #nytimes dance critic @giadk. “That creates something more exciting. Justin has really pulled that out of me, and I’ve been able to change as a dancer, too.” @sbrackbill made this video for #SpeakingInDance, our weekly series exploring the world of #dance.

    Pop Smoke, the Brooklyn-raised rapper whose hits included “Welcome to the Party” and “Dior,” died after he was shot in a home invasion early Wednesday in Los Angeles, his record label said. He was 20. The child of Panamanian and Jamaican parents, Pop Smoke emerged last year as the first breakout star of Brooklyn’s growing drill scene. He collaborated with Travis Scott, Quavo and @nickiminaj, who appeared on a remix of “Welcome to the Party” and wrote on Instagram: “The Bible tells us that jealousy is as cruel as the grave. Unbelievable. Rest In Peace, Pop.” @ryanlowry took this photo of @realpopsmoke in August.

    Ben Affleck tried to drink away the pain. Now he’s trying honesty. “People with compulsive behavior, and I am one, have this kind of basic discomfort all the time that they’re trying to make go away,” @benaffleck told us. “You’re trying to make yourself feel better with eating or drinking or sex or gambling or shopping or whatever. But that ends up making your life worse. Then you do more of it to make that discomfort go away. Then the real pain starts. It becomes a vicious cycle you can’t break. That’s at least what happened to me.” To read more — about his addictive behavior,  his divorce and why he lied about that back tattoo — tap the link in our bio. @magdawosinskastudio took this photo.

    Whether you like cooking, love it or are indifferent, most of us would agree that it’s a drag to wash a lot of pots and pans. Wouldn’t it be great if there was only one? One skillet or one Dutch oven, one sheet pan, one pot? That’s why the editors of @nytcooking have put together this modest (and beautiful), wide-ranging (and tightly focused) collection of recipes devoted to the celebration of one-vessel cooking, on the stovetop and in the oven.

    The protests in November in Hong Kong were the climax of a fight between young protesters who refused to give up their freedoms without a fight and the police, who had exhausted their tolerance for dissent. The world watched the escalating violence in real time on social media. In early December, @theweekly talked to protesters about the fiery siege at @hongkongpolyu. The protest movement persists, but it’s taken a hit. Tens of thousands of protesters marched on New Year’s Day in a mass rally that lasted only 20 minutes before the police fired tear gas to break it up. Since then, protesters such as “Wallace,” a 19 year-old student featured in this clip, have stepped back as the city grapples with the fallout from the coronavirus.

    In less than 3 months as a presidential candidate, Michael Bloomberg has probably poured more of his personal fortune into his campaign than any American politician in history. But that spending is dwarfed by what he has spent in previous years on philanthropic and political causes across the U.S., spending that has given him an unmatched network of nationwide influence and could give him a crucial advantage in his 2020 presidential run. In some cases, his donations have secured the allegiance or cooperation of powerful institutions and leaders within the Democratic Party. Additionally, some of his biggest endorsements have come from cities that have been focal points for his philanthropy. To read more on how @mikebloomberg has used his spending to position himself as a national leader with presidential ambitions, tap the link in our bio.

    Ryan Newman was in position to win the Daytona 500 during the race's final turn on Monday before his car crashed, flipped onto its roof and was hit broadside by another car. In the fiery aftermath of the accident, Denny Hamlin won the race, the crowd fell silent and @ryannewman1977 skidded down the track in a shower of sparks and flames. Newman’s injuries were reported after the race as serious but not life-threatening. Tap the link in our bio for a moment-by-moment look at what happened. Photo by Terry Renna/@apnews

    A kayaker and a 134-foot waterfall. What could go wrong? Dane Jackson, a 26-year-old national kayaking champion from Tennessee, encapsulates his obsession with kayaking over Chile’s Salto del Maule waterfall in one simple, pure explanation: passion. “It’s been a dream of mine for 5 years,” he said. “I think it’s just one of the most photogenic waterfalls I’ve ever seen. And it’s also quite tall.” Tap the link in our bio for the full interview with @danejacksonkayak. Video via Novus Select

    Paraguay's response to modernist architecture? Clay, mud and timber. When the 3-year-old firm @EquipodeArquitectura started planning a studio for itself in Asunción, Paraguay’s capital, the young partners, Viviana Pozzoli and Horacio Cherniavsky, both 30, looked to rammed earth, used in homes by architects like José Cubilla, Francisco Tomboly and Sonia Carisimo, as a material that could not only combine rural and urban sensibilities but also in fact be rural and urban itself. Completed in 2018, their 485-square-foot studio space looks like a square gift box wrapped in butcher’s paper, its walls the shade of terra cotta against a lush backdrop of tropical foliage. Sunlight pours in through a broad pane of glass that bends up over the facade and onto the roof; inside, a miniature courtyard encases the gnarled trunk of a guavirá tree in glass like a botany exhibition. Click the link in our bio for @tmagazine’s story on a new generation of builders devising daring structures that celebrate natural materials, push for eco-consciousness — and argue for a more democratic future. @jasonschmidtstudio took this photo.

    Vegetarian Swedish meatballs — and you don't even have to go furniture shopping to eat them! Cremini mushrooms, chickpeas and bulgur wheat mimic the texture of ground meat. Blanketed in a velvety mushroom gravy, they are excellent served over egg noodles or mashed potatoes.

    The aptly named Belle-Île-en-Mer (“Beautiful Island in the Sea”), the largest island off the coast of Brittany, is on the cusp of a new wave of popularity. Once a favored late-19th-century hideaway for artists like Claude Monet, the island is now one of the greenest and most pristine destinations in France and inspiring a new wave of visitors with new restaurants and historical sites. And to preserve its natural beauty, a variety of eco-responsible initiatives include a specialized team that maintains the island’s 56 miles of hiking trails and rebuilds the dunes along its magnificent coastline.
