Project 010: No Bleed Aesthetic

For Project 010 we solicited your Project ideas. Professor Malu Roldan wrote us with this one:I'd like to propose a project that invites submissions of page layouts for printed material that avoid bleeds and other elements that require high ink usage. I've been trying to promote sustainable printing in the university where I work and one thing I've found is that while folks are aware of ways to address paper usage (e.g. recycled substrate, fsc certified papers), there is less attention paid to reducing the usage of petroleum-based inks and toner. Since use of soy inks is impractical right now, one of the ways of addressing this issue is to reduce the percentage of ink coverage on the page. However, it has been hard for most users (and designers) to envision attractive ways of doing this. So I propose a project to generate a catalog of ideas for printed material designs that minimize the amount of ink coverage on a page. It would be great if users could go to GOOD Magazine's site to view these ideas and become inspired to incorporate the ideas into their own projects.Partner organizations might be those promoting sustainable printing methods-e.g. Forest Stewardship Council-or a printer vendor interested in sustainability-e.g. Hewlett Packard (full disclosure: this idea grew out of my HP-funded research project on Digital Publishing).Thanks - love the magazine!MaluMalu Roldan, Ph.D.Associate ProfessorManagement Information SystemsSan Jose State University


Between Alexa, Siri, and Google, artificial intelligence is quickly changing us and the way we live. We no longer have to get up to turn on the lights or set the thermostat, we can find the fastest route to work with a click, and, most importantly, tag our friends in pictures. But interacting with the world isn't the only thing AI is making easier – now we can use it save the world, too.

The book, to be released on November 19, gives an alleged insider account of the Trump White House and paints a picture of the president as a chaotic man who lacks the mental and moral acumen required for the job.

The anonymous staffer says that Trump once feigned a Hispanic accent and made fun of women attempting to immigrate to the U.S.

The 63-year-old Oakland-Alameda Coliseum, currently branded the RingCentral Coliseum, is one of the most decrepit sports venues in America.

The home to the the NFL's Oakland Raiders (until they move to Las Vegas next season) and MLB's A's, is notoriously known as the Black Hole and has made headlines for its frequent flooding and sewage issues.

One of the stadium's few positive aspects is its connection to public transportation.

Yad Vashem

Since 1992, the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous has been holding reunion ceremonies between Holocaust survivors and rescuers once a year. But the tradition is coming to an end, as many have died or are too frail to travel. What might be the last reunion of its kind took place when a 92-year-old woman met up with the two surviving family members that she helped hide during the Holocaust, and their descendants.

Sarah Yanai and Yossi Mor introduced Melpomeni Dina (nee Gianopoulou) to their almost 40 family members, all decedents of the Mordechai family, the family of seven that Dina and her two sisters hid during WWII. "There are no words to describe this feeling," Dina told the Jeruselum Post. "It is very emotional for us to be together again."
