Scientists in the Italian city of Florence have opened a tomb to extract DNA they hope will identify the model for Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa. The tomb contains the family of Lisa Gherardini, a silk merchant's wife who is believed to have sat for the artist.

Judge Upholds Artist's Right to Photograph Unsuspecting Neighbors
Art Newspaper
New York's Supreme Court has decided that the photographer Arne Svenson was within his rights to display and advertise a series of photographs he took of his neighbors without their permission. In May, a couple sued Svenson for violating their privacy after recognizing their young children in two of the images. The judge dismissed the suit, writing that the family's right to privacy "yields to an artist's protections under the First Amendment in the circumstances presented here."

What's a Blog Post Worth?
Chronicle of Higher Education
Which ultimately does more good: an article or monograph that is read by twenty or thirty people in a narrow field, or a blog post on a topic of interest to many (such as grading standards or tenure requirements) that is read by 200,000? What if the post spurs hundreds of comments, is debated publicly in faculty lounges and classrooms, and gets picked up by newspapers and websites across the country—in other words, it helps to shape the national debate over some hot-button issue?

The Utility of Bad Art
The Economist
The father of consumer choice theory, Alfred Marshall, believed that the more of something you have the less of it you want: a phenomenon economists call diminishing marginal utility. However this was only taken to be the case for an individual at one point in time, not over his entire life. Addiction could prompt us to learn to like something if we consume more of it. The more we listen to good music, the more we want to buy. Modern economists are more skeptical about our aesthetic judgment.
