Find the 12 differences


What's different about today's "12 differences" post?

Well, for one thing it's a scan of an actual physical page in today's Washington Post magazine, which is where the feature appears on the second from last page every Sunday.

My previous posts of this ilk were assembled by me from online versions of the magazine.

You will note that the before-and-after images heading this post are stacked one atop the other — exactly like I've posted them in the past.

A number of readers did/do not like this format: one said it made it "impossible" to solve, while a number of others said the images should be side-by-side.

Hey, I just work here.

If you want side-by-side images, do what I did in a reply to one such reader and rearrange them on your computer screen.

Francesco Rizzato's deep dive September 2, 2021 article on Open Signal is headlined "How the 5G experience compares across 50 states and 250 U.S. cities."

As is oftimes the case, the hype and media inundation has far exceeded the results up to now.

Cartier Juste un Clou Bracelet

Screen Shot 2021-09-10 at 1.41.52 PM

It's what WTA players wear during matches.

I first spotted this bracelet on Genie Bouchard last year and it's just reappeared on Aryna Sabalenka at the U.S. Open, both wearing it during every match.

From the website:

A nail becomes jewelry.

Designed in 1970s New York, the first Juste un Clou bracelet reflected a wild, freewheeling era.

Bold, modern, and innovative, Juste un Clou is a creative twist on a familiar object.


Features and Details:

 18K yellow gold

  Width: 3.5mm

But wait — there's more!

Yesterday I noticed 18-year-old Emma Raducanu, shock winner of the U.S. Open, was wearing the white gold version of this bracelet (below)
