‘Fake’ coaches, fixers undermine China’s football ambitions

Shanghai (AFP) – Rapacious middlemen and coaches with forged or few qualifications are trying their luck in China’s fast-growing grassroots football, imperilling its ambitions to become a major force in the sport, insiders warn. At the behest of football-fan President Xi Jinping, for whom it is a soft-power tool, the world’s second-biggest economy is throwing resources at the game domestically. Central to that is getting more youngsters to play at schools, clubs and academies. The education min...

That Caravaggio Found In The Attic Is Being Handled With Unusual Honesty

There has been plenty of disagreement about whether the painting of Judith beheading Holofernes that turned up in Toulouse in 2016 is an original Caravaggio or a copy. But the people selling it are doing the right things: allowing every scholar that wants examine it access, being generous with shows to the public, and leaving the sale to the auctioneer that found it rather than passing it to Sotheby’s or Christie’s. If only this sort of behavior weren’t so rare. – Apollo

Concorde: technical feat, financial fiasco

The Concorde airliner first took to the skies 50 years ago promising a revolution in air travel with its technical prowess and supersonic speed. The first flight of Concorde's prototype 001 was a successful half-hour test over Toulouse, southern France, on March 2, 1969. It would take another seven years for the aircraft developed by French company Aerospatiale and the British Aircraft Corporation (precursor of BAE Systems) to begin commercial services.

Painting found in attic could fetch $170 million at auction

In 2014, French auctioneer Marc Labarbe received a phone call from a friend. The attic of their Toulouse home had yielded a surprising discovery: a painting, coated in dust and stained by a water leak, that looked all the same to be something of value. Labarbe approached gingerly, cleaning one of the painted faces with cotton wool and water. He sent a photo to the art appraiser Eric Turquin, based in Paris, and then he waited.
