George Soros on Myanmar: A Long-Term Investment That 'Paid Off'
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Philanthropist and investor George Soros warned Thursday that ethnic tensions and a lack of tolerance threaten economic and political progress in Myanmar, a country to which Soros has devoted more than two decades of attention and philanthropy. "Ethnic and religious tensions ... are the most disturbing part of the process of reform in Myanmar," Soros said at Asia Society in New York. Tolerance towards marginalized groups such as the Rohingya Muslims, he added, "may determine the legacy of (President) Thein Sein." Overall Soros praised Myanmar for its early steps toward democracy and economic reform. He called his own efforts in that country -- long known as Burma -- as "a longer-term investment that paid off ... I don't think I ever had a financial investment as long-term as that." Soros' appearance was part of a season of Asia Society programming focused on Myanmar, which has been in a transition from military dictatorship to democracy for the past several years. Soros has devote ...

Behind The AMNH's Most Venerable Artifact Is A Shameful History
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Behind the American Museum of Natural History’s most venerable artifact is the shameful tale of a relentless explorer and a young boy’s torturous journey from Greenland to New York. The hulking, craggy rock that looms largest in the Arthur Ross Hall of Meteorites at the American Museum of Natural History seems immovable, and is in fact so heavy that its supports go right down to the bedrock of Manhattan beneath the museum. Of course, the hefty iron meteorite didn't just plummet from space right into New York. Along with the two smaller meteorites placed alongside it, the rock has had a long journey from its original place of impact. Its journey is the story of a determined leader in the Age of Arctic Exploration, and the tragic life of a young Inuk boy, quite possibly the loneliest boy in nineteenth century New York, who briefly lived at this very museum.

Catherine Despont: Salvage Art Institute's Exhibit Explores Art's Afterlife
Huffington Post - over 4 years
When is art broken? Does a crack in the Sistine Chapel pose a threat to the way we see it? And how do we determine when a work is beyond repair? Sometimes it's a matter of cost, or technology -- but even then, isn't an artwork worth more than just the sum of its parts? Any aesthete will want to say yes, but sitting in the storage units of insurance companies around the world there are objects -- some painting-like, some sculpture-like -- that have been damaged and striped of their art status. These pieces, claimed as "total loss" by their owners, are known as "salvage art" in insurance parlance. Void of value they are sent to what amounts to art limbo, even though damage is barely discernible in some cases. Until recently, there was no public access to these inventories -- but a new entity called the Salvage Art Institute will bring some of these objects to light again on November 14th in an exhibit called "No Longer Art," presented by Columbia University's Graduate Scho ...

Intervention Mentality and the Spectacle of Joseph Kony
Dissident Voice - almost 5 years
The modern world is a place of constructed images. With a globe shrunk by the forces of globalization, and communication made seemliness by technological advancement, information is produced in an instant and has the ability to reach greater masses than ever seen before. But under a regime of neo-liberalism, information is perpetually reworked into a commodity, and the prevailing images transform into a branded, advertising-based format. It holds a mirror up to the human being’s psychological working, tapping their fears and desires for monetary ends, and thus, advertised information is the essential driver of consumption, the engine of industry. One of the more prevalent images in the current epoch is that of militarization. The armed forces now take part in Hollywood production (the recent film Act of Valor, for example), one of the top selling video game series, Call of Duty, promises the most authentic war experience, and the line between news and military action is blurred by th ...

"I Want You" has been covered by Robert Palmer, Madonna, Michael McDonald, and Diana Ross herself on the 2007 disc I Love You. His sole rare album on Motown, "Changes", finally got released on CD in August 2012. The album opens up with his most covered song, "I Want You" and closes with another self-penned song "To the Baby" which he wrote for big sister, Diana, a long delayed tribute to her first two daughters. It is clear that Arthur 'T-Boy' Ross was yet another talented member of the Ross family that also included his oldest sister, Barbara, a doctor along with his mega-star sister, Diana Ross.
