This second article in my series about the absurdly productive trans-national art star Jan Fabre (the first is here ) has very little to do directly with him or his work. Rather, it is about the State Hermitage Museum, one of the wonders of the world. We take a look at it because it is on this field which Fabre agreed to stake a claim.

Stock market cycles are something of an enigma — if investors generally know they exist, why don’t they get out at the peaks, and buy back in when the market is down? The better you understand the dynamics of market cycles, the better you can take advantage of them rather than being victimized by them. What makes up a stock market cycle?
WASHINGTON ― President-elect Donald Trump could blow a giant hole in Obamacare on his first day in office without even waiting for the Republican-led Congress to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The question is: Does he want to
Trying to have any meaningful discussion about the climate change crisis with someone who rejects mainstream science is a recipe for frustration. And with a president-elect who has said climate change is “ bullshit ” and a “ hoax ,” it’s likely many family holiday celebrations this year will include unproductive and, shall we say, spirited banter.

It was chilling enough to learn that President-elect Donald Trump’s team was discussing the idea of a registry for Muslim immigrants . The news grew even more alarming when Carl Higbie, a Trump surrogate, defended the notion by citing the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II.

The barrier around a gorilla exhibit at the Cincinnati Zoo was not in compliance with regulations when a 3-year-old boy fell into the enclosure in May, according to a federal investigation. Zoo officials questioned the finding by pointing out the barrier passed muster with federal authorities about a month before the boy’s fall. “In its 38-year history, the barrier system at Gorilla World has always been found compliant during USDA inspections,” a statement from the zoo said. A member of an animal response team fatally shot a Western lowland gorilla named Harambe on May 28 after determining that the ape posed an imminent threat to the child. The animal’s death unleashed a public fury that was directed both at the child’s mother and at the zoo for its decision to use lethal force. Inspectors from the U.S.

BERLIN, Nov 17 (Reuters) – The European Union is in danger of breaking apart unless France and Germany, in particular, work harder to stimulate growth and employment and heed citizens’ concerns, French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said in the German capital on Thursday. Valls said the two countries, for decades the axis around which the EU revolved, had to help refocus the bloc to tackle an immigration crisis, a lack of solidarity between member states, Britain’s looming exit, and terrorism. “Europe is in danger of falling apart,” Valls said at an event organized by the Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper

By Adelyn Zhou Every entrepreneur can likely relate: You wake up each morning to hundreds of unread emails, stare at a to-do list that never seems to die, and schedule meetings on a fully-booked calendar two months out. With a workload like this, every minute is essential. That’s why I constantly invest time in finding ways to automate the more mundane aspects of work
About 50 million Americans suffer from nasal allergies , but perhaps their coughing, sneezing, itchy eyes, wheezing, runny nose and other side effects are being inadvertently exacerbated ― by them!

I’m desiring to respond to everything that’s happened in the last week, and yet I’ve been struggling to respond at the same time. While I tend to stay away from politics, I’ve seen so many posts, articles and physical and verbal actions hurting each other and making each other wrong, I feel a pull to come forward.
At COP22 In Morocco, Secretary Of State John Kerry Affirms U.S. Commitment To Address Climate Change
Secretary of State John Kerry reaffirmed the US commitment to addressing global climate change here at the UN climate conference in Marrakech, Morocco. Marrakech serves as host city for the 22nd Conference of Parties ( COP22 ) under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change ( UNFCCC ). The world must now wait to see if the incoming Trump administration will honor those commitments, or if the US will become a rogue nation that denies the very existence of climate change as a hoax “created by and for the Chinese to make US manufacturing less competitive.” Once inaugurated, Trump will stand as THE ONLY head-of-state who denies the science of climate change.
As some in the country continue to come to grips with last week’s presidential election, Justice Sonia Sotomayor offered sobering words Tuesday for those who may be wondering how to move forward under a future President Donald Trump . “I think that this is the time where every good person has an obligation both to continue being heard and to continue doing the right thing,” she said Tuesday during a conversation with talk radio host Bill Press , who introduced the topic of the election as the “800-pound gorilla in the room.” The president-elect didn’t come up by name during the hour-long exchange, held in front of an intimate audience at the Old Naval Hospital’s Hill Center in Washington. But Trump was certainly on everyone’s mind, including Sotomayor, who declined to delve into presidential or transition politics but nonetheless engaged the subject gracefully, as if speaking to the whole nation.
President Obama and Michelle Obama still have two months left in the White House, and yet somehow we already miss them terribly.

President-elect Donald Trump left reporters in the dark about his whereabouts Tuesday night, continuing a pattern of restricting press access and setting up a dangerous precedent for the press covering the Trump administration.

Trump’s transition team had told the reporters there would be no more news for the day, indicating Trump would remain at Trump Tower for the night
Megan Kelly gained national attention when she moderated the first Republican primary debate last August, where she faced off with then-Republican candidate Donald Trump. During the debate, she asked the then candidate, Trump, about derogatory comments she said he made about women, from calling them “fat pigs” to “dogs, slobs and disgusting animals.” The Advice That Megyn Kelly Says Hit Her ‘Like A Lightning Bolt’ In an exclusive interview with Dr. Phil airing Tuesday, Kelly says there’s a backstory to that moment, which she opens up about for the first time in her new memoir, “Settle For More.” “Once he announced his candidacy for president, one of the stories that broke about him and it was significant news in the lead-up to that debate, it was July of 2015, was that in his divorce proceeding from his first wife, Ivana …”

WASHINGTON, Nov 11 (Reuters) – The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, already in legal limbo after an October court decision, could find its powers scaled back by President-elect Donald Trump and a Republican-led Congress, according to members of both political parties, lobbyists and lawyers. That may mean the end of many of the agency’s rule-making actions that have enraged critics, including a proposal to stop companies from blocking customers from class action lawsuits and another one to limit payday lending
President Barack Obama on Thursday sent a request to Congress for an additional $11.6 billion in supplemental war-related funding, which would include money to fight Islamic State militants and sustain high overseas troop levels. The request, detailed in a letter released by the White House, seeks an additional $5.8 billion for the Pentagon for military operations in Afghanistan and fighting Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, and an $5.8 billion for the State Department and United States Agency for International Development (USAID) for fiscal 2017.

As a Latina, I’m more than concerned by the shocking news that yesterday history was made, but not in the sense we expected.

Today, Americans woke up in a nation where Donald Trump ― a man open about his racism , misogyny and xenophobia ― is the president-elect. Shortly after the surprising loss of Hillary Clinton , who many thought would become the United States’ first female president, the hashtag #HesNotMyPresident began trending across the country. Politicians , analysts and cultural icons shared their shock and anguish, too.
This election was a ridiculously long and sad spectacle, as well as being a total media circus, and said something rather unfortunate about what we appear to have become as a nation. America has officially made the transition from personifying the era of Lincoln and Fireside Chats to that of reality television, soap operas and sound bites.
