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.

Joss Whedon ’s Save The Day super PAC released a new video to encourage voters to hit the polls next week.  The video stars Chris Pine as Leonard, a whiny, misogynistic man-child whose behavior in the workplace is beyond unprofessional and dysfunctional. In other words ― as noted in a press release for the video ― the “Star Trek” actor is “the human embodiment of today’s United States Congress.”  As the clip states, employees would never get away with the things Pine is seen doing ― shutting down his company when people don’t agree with him, chasing a woman around the office claiming he’s the “boss of her whole body” ― so why has Congress?  The only way to make a difference is by voting, so please, for the sake of the country’s future, head to the polls on Nov.

Alligators may be fierce apex predators, but there’s something even they have to watch out for: Other alligators.  At least one gator learned that lesson a little too late at the Circle B Bar Reserve  in Lakeland, Florida this week when it was eaten by a much larger beast. Several people in multiple locations at the 1,267-acre reserve saw the monster gator chowing down on a littler one, leading to a number of incredible clips posted on YouTube and across social media.  Alex Figueroa, who shot one of the clips, estimated the larger gator to be 11 or 12 feet long , according to a description he posted on YouTube.  Andrew Lilyquist, who shot the clip at the top of this page, told WFTS in Tampa that he’d heard about gator fights and went hoping to catch one on camera — but he hadn’t expected to actually see one.  ” My heart was racing ,” he was quoted as saying. “I just saw that big head and I said ok this is going to be great.” Another clip, filmed by Octavia Heart, shows what appears to be the same gator in another location at the reserve having a gator snack:   The station said this kind of aggression is common, especially during mating season, which runs from March through mid-June.

Zaki’s Review: The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

With the arrival of The Man From U.N.C.L.E.  after twenty-plus years in development, we’ve completed the series-to-feature process for all four major espionage-themed TV shows of the 1960s. The Mission: Impossible movies began their run in 1996, The Avengers (no, not those Avengers ) arrived in 1998, and I Spy hit cineplexes in 2002.

In his magnum opus War and Peace (1869), Russian literary genius Leo Tolstoy eloquently underplayed the impact of singular leaders (think of Napoleon Bonaparte) on the dialectical flow of history. Preempting the social scientists of the 20th century, he brilliantly discussed the importance of vast “impersonal forces” — the complex interaction of socio-cultural, politico-economic, and ecological factors — that undergird the very canvass upon which ambitious men and women jostle to leave a lasting mark. For every Tolstoy, however, there is a Shakespeare and Voltaire, who will preach the undeniable impact of human agency: That is to say, the intended and unintended consequences of individuals’ actions on their broader social milieu.
