The Case for Naming a US Secretary of Culture
Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Along with adding the finishing touches to his inaugural address on Monday, President Barack Obama has plenty on his plate. He is consumed by the responsibilities of selecting new Cabinet members and preparing strategies to get them confirmed. He already had his fair share of critics, and the last thing he needs is a music critic telling him how to run the country. So I'm sorry to have to be the one to remind you, Mr. President, that you've left someone out: Secretary of Culture. More

Edward Winkleman    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
In the context of an article exploring the need for more regulation of the art market, with a list of examples of questionable practices in the current system, the New York Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kevin Flynn raise again the issue of galleries not posting prices of the work for sale in their spaces. I don't see why this is really a newsworthy "problem." In the ten-plus years I've been in the art business, I have never once heard anyone complain unprompted about the lack of prices being posted other than journalists. More

Secret Painting in Rembrandt Masterpiece Coming into View
LiveScience    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Scientists may be one step closer to revealing a hidden portrait behind a 380-year-old Rembrandt painting, Old Man in Military Costume, which resides at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. Scientists had noticed the painting bears faint traces of another portrait beneath its surface. Researchers had previously probed the painting with infrared, neutron, and conventional X-ray methods but could not see the behind the top coat, largely because Rembrandt used the same paint (with the same chemical composition) for the underpainting and the final version.

Thirty-Hour Work Week Is a Critical Threshold for More Than Just Health Care
Chronicle of Higher Education    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The way colleges count adjuncts' workloads is important not only for determining whether they are eligible for health insurance under the new health-care law, but also for their participation in some other federalprograms.

The Atlantic    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
During a time when computing power was so scarce that it required a government defense budget to finance it, a young man used a $238 million military computer, the largest such machine ever built, to render an image of a curvy woman on a glowing cathode ray tube screen. The year was 1956, and the creation was a landmark moment in computer graphics and cultural history that has gone unnoticed until now. More

Will 3D-Printed Houses Stand Up as Architecture?
The Guardian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
