Celebrity Twitter is usually a parade of promotional tweets and ab shots, but not so for our dear, beloved Russell Crow. Russ may be a Hollywood star, but you guys, he's got poetry in his heart. Put simply, Crowe seems to be an avid phone photographer and it's amazing. After all, creativity is what he's all about. He was the front man of late, lamented band, 30 Odd Foot of Grunts, don't forget. We should put him in the MOMA. Here is a sampling of his oeuvre: Blurry clouds at dusk. pic.twitter.com/oCb3hUQnVd Russell Crowe (@russellcrowe) January 14, 2017 Read more...

In a recent interview with theSun, the emerging designer waxed lyrical about Japanese subcultures, the case between strong females and androgyny, and her homage for both through her designs. Could you expound on your fascination for Japanese culture? I’ve been interested in it since I was in secondary school. I was initially attracted to the story of the yakuza (transnational organised crime syndicates) and the bõsõzoku (youth subculture affiliated with customised motorcycles), but researching their histories led me to the samurai. Samurai have lived through many eras in Japan but they ended up abolished by the government because of their association with violence and weapons. Consequentially, the aforementioned subcultures and groups were born. Likewise, the origins of kendo and sumo wrestling trace back to the samurai. What do you like about samurai culture and how did you apply it to your SS17 ‘Way of the Warriorcollection? I like their armour and the way they wore them – the details and panelling are different from Western military costumes.

The lead event in the series sponsored by the writers' group PEN America will be staged on the steps of the New York Public Library and feature former U.S. poet laureates Robert Pinsky and Rita Dove. Pinsky, a professor of English and creative writing at Boston University, told The Associated Press he'll recite a new poem he wrote for the occasion that will invoke the celebrated black poet Gwendolyn Brooks, Walt Whitman and others who waxed lyrical about American democratic ideals. Those of us who use words professionally have a certain stake in the truth, he said. It's hard to think of anything more important. In the long run, lies and fabrications wither away, but the truth endures forever. Daniel Evans Pritchard, a Boston writer, said he and others in the literary world are troubled by the tone of Trump's tweets and worried the incoming new administration will have a chilling effect on freedom of expression.

For example, in medieval Spain, the Troubadour poets borrowed their lyrical beauty from Arabic . Arabic was the courtly language of southern Spain until the 15th century. Similarly, the 12th-century Palatine Chapel in Sicily was painted and gilded in the imperial style of the Fatimids , the rulers of Egypt between the 10th and 12th centuries. Such exchanges were common, thanks to the mobility of people as well as ideas. The point is that the story of Islam cannot be told without a deeper understanding of its cultural history: Even for early Muslim rulers , it was the Byzantine empire, the Roman empire and the Sassanian empire (the pre-Islamic Persian empire) that provided models. Such overlaps continued over the centuries, resulting in heterodox and cosmopolitan societies. The term "Middle East" - coined in the 19th century - fails to describe the complex social and cultural mosaic or religions that have existed in the region most closely associated with Islam - and continue to do so today.

She was 29, from a good and well-to-do family, and Juan Valera was 62, I repeat. Being 62 in 1886 was not the same as being 62 in 2014. Mystery surrounds Catherine's sudden death, or suicide, but even though she had several suitors, and was once betrothed to a young man, her love, her true love was a Spanish older man, who represented Spain in Washington. In their correspondence the question of "age" is never brought up. Allow me to be lyrical for once: Love knows no age limits, locations, nationalities, races, cultures, and is ruled by randomness and fate that brought Catherine Lee Bayard and Juan Valera together.

Immuno-oncology is a type of cancer treatment designed to boost the body's natural defences to fight the disease. It uses substances either made by the body or in a laboratory to improve or restore immune system function. Immunotherapy in cancer treatment could every bit as significant as the breakthroughs made in HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis around 15 years ago, according to the specialist research firm BioNap. “For biotech investors, the prospect of curing cancer has led to an abundance of opportunities as more and more companies enter the space,” it said in a note published this week. Interest in this emerging area is such that an exchange-traded fund dedicated to cancer immunotherapy has been set up that invests in a spread of companies in this sector. It is called the Series Solutions Trust Loncar Cancer Immunotherapy ETF (NASDAQ:CNCR). One company in the vanguard of immuno-oncology is Ontario-based Vaxil Bio Ltd (CVE:VXL).

But by that token, setting an entire novel around such a shocking act, without justifying its presence through some meaningful psychological exploration or other excavation of truth, bears its own whiff of needless prurience. Its a novel about the psychological ripples of an unthinkable crime, but it ultimately wavers when it comes to laying bare the psyches of its subjects, which remain too opaque to be revelatory. The Bottom Line: Lyrical, sharply beautiful prose washes through Idaho , a dark and poignant debut that never quite manages to bring its characters to life yet remains gripping from beginning to end. What other reviewers think: Kirkus: Ruskovich builds poetry out of observing the smallest details moments of narrative precision and clarity that may not illuminate what happened the day of the murder but which push the reader to interrogate the limits of empathy.

LONDON (AP) British author Richard Adams, whose 1972 book Watership Down became a classic of children's literature, has died, according to his daughter. He was 96. Juliet Johnson told the Associated Press on Tuesday that Adams died in Oxfordshire, England on Christmas Eve after getting progressively weaker in recent weeks. He died of what used to be called old age, she said, adding that her father also suffered from a blood disorder. Adams' lyrical and poignant novel about the plight of rabbits whose home was under threat became an astonishing success after it was published. Popular with both children and adults, it has since sold millions of copies and was made into a film, with a remake scheduled for next year. It entered the popular imagination and has never been forgotten. Adams dreamed up the elements of Watership Down while working as a civil servant and regaling Juliet and her sister Rosamond with stories about rabbits.
