THE GAME: Believe It—Bankers' Pay Takes a Tumble -... →
In the precrisis days, bankers would work ungodly hours, fly halfway around the world at a moment’s notice and kiss up to clients and superiors, all for the promise that they would retire rich in their 40s or early 50s. It was like working a job that had a very lucrative pension. Now, with so much of his or her compensation at risk, the prospect of the banker toiling deep into his 50s or...

Jeopardy Pt. 5: Postmortem
Finally, here we are - theme music, applause, Johnny Gilbert reminds us all that THIS is “Jeopardy,” Trebek struts out from parts unknown. I sweat like a bastard, wind up $1400 in the hole right away. I can tell you that I honestly thought Tim said something other than “Pekingese.” I can tell you that “SOFIA COPPOLA” was sitting on my stupid fucking tongue...
Jeopardy Pt. 4: Gameday
Watching “Jeopardy” from the studio audience turns out to be sort of like that Kim Mitchell video where the whole band is playing inside the fridge. Everything’s identical to the show you’ve seen a million times - same cadences, same graphics and music, all the cues and blocking are instantly recognizable - but at Stonehenge scale. The video wall is a looming grid of plasma...

theatlantic: The Chinese government is not fond of criticism. Sometimes they lock the critics up (see: Ai Weiwei). They can’t do that with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, though. Thus, apparently in response to a Clinton’s speech and the U.S. State Department’s 2011 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices, the Chinese government has released its own report: a catalog of the human rights...

Jeopardy Pt. 3: CHAMPIONSHIP JEOPARDY SECRETS
Two relatively simple misconceptions about “Jeopardy” that I’d like to formally clear up, once and for all: “Jeopardy” does not, in fact, provide a cram sheet or any other kind of study guide. When it comes to preparing for the show, you’re on your own. “Jeopardy” does not, in fact, pay for you to go to California to appear on the show. When it...
Jeopardy Pt. 2: Backstory
When you decide you want to be on “Jeopardy,” this is roughly how it works: you take an online test, which they offer every January. Fifty questions, Flash-based. It’s mostly general knowledge, trending more to the purely trivial. (“Pure trivia” is one of those semi-pejorative pieces of “Jeopardy” jargon that you only become familiar with when you venture...

Jeopardy Pt. 1: A Few Words about Alex Trebek
I’m going to be on “Jeopardy” next Tuesday, April 12. I’ve been unable to really say very much about it for the last four and a half months (and I still can’t really talk in concrete terms about how I did), but over the course of the last few months I’ve been jotting down some notes about what happened, which I’d like to begin sharing with you now. Forgive...
