For example, KoonsBalloon Dog (Orange) sold for $58 million, the highest price ever paid for a work by a living artist. His aggregated sales over the last decade amount to over $600 million, or roughly twice the amount of his nearest competitor, and many times more than his priciest contemporaries. Koons’ works are found in many of the most prestigious museums in this country including the Art Institute of Chicago, New York’s Museum of Modern Art, and the Hirshhorn in Washington, D.C. In 2014, he was given a major show at New York’s Whitney Museum, a tastemaker, no matter how dubious, of contemporary art. Koons is the establishment artist of the rich and famous of the 21st century, much in the way Frank Gehry is the "starchitect" du jour. Like Gehry, Koons is also a much sought after commercial brand.

Oh, they were ‘disruptive,’ ‘socially unacceptable,’ ‘politically unacceptable.’ I’ve become furious. I’m a retired Command Sergeant Major. I was never famous for having a lot of patience.” ( source ) The quote above is from Bob Dean, a retired U.S. Army Command Sergeant Major who also served at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE) of NATO as an intelligence analyst. Even the Russian government called for an international investigation into the U.S. moon landings about the disappearance of film footage, as well as 400 kilograms of lunar rock that were obtained from multiple lunar missions. You can read more about that here . On top of that we have comments from several astronauts, including Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the 6th man to walk on the moon, alluding to the fact that our government already knows we are not alone: Read the books, read the lore, start to understand what has really been going on, because there is no doubt that we are being visited.

When is Black Friday 2017? Black Friday is the Friday immediately after the Thanksgiving holiday in the US, so Black Friday 2017 will be on November 24th. Its the starting gun of the Christmas shopping season, and its famous for what retailers call doorbusters : deals so good that shoppers will try and break down the front doors to get at them. Inevitably that means its also famous for shoppers battling one another, with each Black Friday bringing a new bunch of YouTube clips showing people fighting over flat-screen TVs. Things got so bad on Black Friday 2014 that ASDA, Wal-Marts UK brand and the firm largely responsible for bringing Black Friday to the UK, decided not to do Black Friday 2015 or Black Friday 2016 at all. That proved to be an expensive decision. Like for like sales in the 13 weeks to January 1 2016 were down 5.

When Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was asked to give this years commencement address at Harvard, he asked for advice from Bill Gates . Zuckerberg said, They know we didnt actually graduate, right? To which Gates replied, Oh, that is the best part! They actually give you a degree! This recent exchange between two famous Harvard dropouts might lead you to think college doesnt matter. Numerous media stories and even famous billionaires are glamorizing dropouts or encouraging kids to skip colleg e entirely. While its true there are successful college dropouts, statistically speaking, they are not the norm. As researchers in education and talent, we found that the vast majority of the countrys success stories are college graduates, such as Sheryl Sandberg (Harvard), Jeff Bezos (Princeton) and Marissa Mayer (Stanford).

) Trump held more short QAs with reportersseven—in his first 50 days, than Obama, George H.W. Bush or Reagan, though not nearly as many as either George W. Bush or Clinton, who held 47 in 50 days. And Trump gave 17 interviews, fewer than Obama’s 25, but more than his other four most recent predecessors. But access does not always produce insight. Reporters contend that while White House officials seem to have all day to talk about internal grudges, basic policy questions tend to go unanswered. When the Associated Press obtained a memo in mid-February that apparently showed the Department of Homeland Security considering a plan to mobilize the National Guard to assist in deportations, the White House ignored the wire service’s inquiries and waited for it to publish a story before bothering to deny its contents. Yet when New York magazine’s Olivia Nuzzi texted Kellyanne Conway to ask her if the president had un-followed his famous White House counselor on Twitter, Conway ensured the president followed her account within minutes.

This hulking paperback , with its 250 pages of introduction, chronology, notes, appendices, acknowledgments, bibliography, and "online resources," and goodness knows how many fragments, squibs, and variant readings, is all anyone will ever want of Shelley. Rather more than all, in fact. If one comes for Adonais , Alastor , "The Cloud," "To a Skylark," "Ode to the West Wind," "The Invitation," "Song to Pan," and perhaps half a dozen others, plus fragments from some of the longer poems, one emphatically does not stay for "Feelings of a Republican on the Fall of Bonaparte" or all 617 excruciating lines of "Julian and Maddalo: A Conversation." Or does one? Certainly the political verse is as dully insistent and piss-takingly spurious now as it must have been during his lifetime. A less famous example begins: A glorious people vibrated again This doesn't look promising, and when it continues chockablock with random apostrophes to "firm Attilius" and "Saxon Alfred" and earnest initial capitals all the way to stanza XVI: O, that the wise from their best minds would kindle Such lamps within the dome of this dim world, That the pale name PRIEST might shrink and dwindle And there is no end in sight past "kingliest masonry," "Art, an ardent intercessor," "man's deep spirit," "Rulers of eternal thought," "Love," "Justice," "Fame," "Hope," and "Liberty" on its way to a plodding conceit-finale involving poetry as a dead swan, you begin to wonder whether Shelley, rather than a good poet who wrote a decent amount that was bad, was not, in fact, simply a bad-ish if copious poet who got lucky occasionally, as if in vindication of the Infinite Monkey Theorem.

Silicon Valley Comic Con, now in its second year, took over the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, Calif. this weekend bringing with it thousands of attendees, dozens of costumed heroes and, well, a few robots, too. The event was formed by resident technophile as well as famous Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and comic book maven Stan Lee back in 2016 as a Northern California extension of the massive celebration that takes place down in San Diego each year. While Silicon Valley Comic Con (SVCC, for short) shares its roots with its southern cousin, this show is slightly different in the sense that its smaller in scale and attendance and, instead of focusing solely on pop-culture, extends an invitation to local tech companies to partake in the three-day event. To that end Sony and Facebook both acted as sponsors to the event offering demos and giveaway gifts to attendees, while the convention floor itself played host to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
