MoMA and Hermitage Museum Take First Steps in Easing Museum Relations Between Russia and US

A forthcoming talk at Southern Methodist University (SMU) in Dallas between the directors of New York’s Museum of Modern Art and St Petersburg’s State Hermitage Museum may be the first step in the easing of relations between US and Russian Museums, which have long been on either side of a loan freeze. “The idea for this public conversation emerged […]

Dangerous jellyfish have invaded Australian beaches

Bluebottle jellyfish have invaded Australia’s Gold and Sunshine Coasts. This past weekend, the jellyfish (also known as the Portuguese man-of-war) stung more than 5,000 people, and many of the victims weren’t even in the water. Just walking on one bluebottle jellyfish on the beach can bring intense pain, and because of strong north-easterly swell conditions, the jellyfish have been pushed to shore. Meanwhile, the deadly Irukandji jellyfish are bombarding the eastern coasts because of warming wa...

US Is Now Out Of UNESCO For Second Time

As of New Year’s Day, the United States, along with Israel, officially left the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization. The trigger for this withdrawal, which was announced 15 months ago, was UNESCO giving World Heritage Site status to the ancient West Bank city of Hebron — as a Palestinian city. (The Reagan administration withdrew the US from the organization in 1984; George W. Bush brought the country back in in 2002.) — The Architect’s Newspaper

Nick Waterhouse: Song For Winners

With the same energy and growl he’s become known for, Nick Waterhouse returns with “Song For Winners.” Accompanying the track is the announcement of a self-titled LP coming 8 March on Innovative Leisure and a US tour. This tune in particular—with crackling drums and frustrated vocals—is accentuated by its ending: almost a full minute breakdown featuring drums, saxophone and electric guitar.

US Supreme Court Rejects Olivia de Havilland’s Lawsuit Against Miniseries ‘Feud: Bette And Joan’

The 102-year-old actress objected to the FX series’ portrayal of her as a gossipy hypocrite who (this was very important to de Havilland) used dirty words. A California appeals court ruled against her on First Amendment grounds, and the Supreme Courts of both California and (now) the US have refused to reconsider the case. — The Hollywood Reporter

Vinyl Sales Grew By Leaps And Bounds In 2018 – And So Did Cassettes

Wait, cassette tapes? Yes (driven, as movie fans could guess, by Guardians of the Galaxy compilations). “Vinyl sales grew by just shy of 12 percent from 8.6 to 9.7 million sales, while cassette sales grew by almost 19 percent from 99,400 to 118,200 copies sold in the US.” But CD sales were in freefall, making physical media take another dip. – The Verge

National Parks are being trashed during the government shutdown

As the government shutdown continues, many National Parks are suffering from a lack of staff as well as a complete disregard for the rules by visitors. According to multiple reports, some parks — like Yosemite National Park in California — are being overwhelmed by trash, vandalism, human waste and destructive off-roading. “It’s a free-for-all,” said Yosemite worker Dakota Snider, who added that the heartbreaking situation is the worst he has seen in his four years living there.

#MeToo Sweeps Argentina After Young Actress Accuses Star Actor Of Rape

Last month, Thelma Fardin posted a video to Instagram in which she tearfully recounted how Juan Darthés allegedly raped her while they were touring Nicaragua for a telenovela. She was 16; he was 45. Fardin’s million followers sent the video viral, with the hashtag #Miracomonosponemos (roughly, “#LookWhatYouveDoneToUs”), and the effect has been as big as that of the Harvey Weinstein accusations in the US. — Public Radio International

Chinese Government Arresting Uyghur Cultural Figures

The Chinese nation’s persecution of its Uyghur peoples has led to a number of artists being imprisoned.  “So many have been taken away,” says Tahir Hamut, a Uyghur poet and film-maker who escaped to the US. “Most of the more famous cultural figures have all been arrested. Their families won’t say for certain, because their families […]

Could California Soon Have Its Own Internet?

A series of laws passed in California this year raise a new possibility: that individual US states will splinter off into their own versions of the internet. In July, California passed a privacy law, similar to the European Union’s policies, that will give users more control about the data companies collect about them. Governor Jerry Brown followed by signing a net neutrality law in late September meant to replace federal rules banning broadband internet providers from blocking or otherwise dis...

Trump portrait: you couldn’t create a creepier Yuletide scene if you tried

The formal smartness of the US president and the first lady adds to the emotional numbness of the scene.The absence of intimacy in the Trumps’ official Christmas portrait freezes the heart. Can it be that hard to create a cosy image of the presidential couple, perhaps in front of a roaring hearth, maybe in seasonal knitwear? Or is this quasi-dictatorial image exactly what the president wants to project? Look on my Christmas trees, ye mighty, and despair! If so, it fuels suspicions that it is onl...

After Tumultuous Year, New York Public Radio President Laura Walker To Step Down

In a memo to staff, Walker said that “the Board and I have agreed that the time has come for me to move on.” (Her contract was due to expire in June; she steps down at the end of March.) Over 23 years, Walker presided over extraordinary growth at WNYC, the US’s largest public radio outlet, but a series of scandals and controversies over the past year led to more general criticism of her management style and extremely high pay. — Current

Great, Classic, Long-Lived Design: The Unsung Brannock Device

You've all seen this thing, but unless you're a footwear designer, you might not know what it's called: That's the Brannock Device, a dead-accurate shoe size measuring object invented by a Syracuse University student in 1926. I love this thing because it's useful, it's made out of steel and the design has been largely unchanged since it first came out. It was invented, patented and produced by Charles Brannock, the aforementioned Syracuse U. student, whose father was co-owner of a shoe co...

Dept. Of Homeland Security Has Mistaken This 90-Year-Old Theatre Historian For An ISIS Terrorist

David Mayer was a lieutenant in the US Army and spent decades living and teaching in Britain. Unfortunately, “David Mayer” was also an alias of one Akhmed Chatayev, a Chechen militant suspected of masterminding the 2016 attack on Istanbul’s airport. Several branches of the US government have gotten the two confused, and now the real Mayer can’t receive packages from the US and has trouble traveling. — The Observer (UK)

Will Hemp Farming’s Legalization Change Society Beyond Agriculture

Thanks to an amendment to the 2018 Farm Bill, already passed by the House and Senate, industrial hemp will be legal to farm in the US once again. From tobacco-producing states seeking a profitable replacement crop to the CBD boom, the demand for this legalization has been huge. In fact, as Leafly points out, “the hemp-derived CBD market is already growing far faster than the legal weed …
