Modigliani the High Point to Otherwise Tepid Auction Season in New York 2015
Huffington Post - over 2 years

There's been some whispering lately about an inevitable leveling off of the art market, and it seems that day has come. Besides the stratospheric result of Amadeo Modigliani's $170 million Nu Couché sold at Christie's on November 9, this season's auction returns have been relatively modest overall--or at least overestimated. Despite the lack of fireworks, the market is still demonstrating strength: Sotheby's looks poised to bring in a total of $1.1 billion this season, and Christie's about the same. So far, the two major auction houses are matching each other stride for stride, a far cry from the trouncing of last season. Frank Stella, Delaware Crossing, 1961, alkyd on canvas, 77 x 77 in.

Justin Sayre Of 'The Meeting' On 'Ab Privilege' In The Gay Community
Huffington Post - about 3 years
In his latest clip for HuffPost Gay, writer-actor Justin Sayre puts a humorous twist on the fraught relationship between gay men and body image, pointing to what he describes as "ab privilege." Recalling his experience with a Tinder match at a party in Hollywood, Sayre laments not having "ab privilege," and jokes about booking an appointment with a personal trainer out of "spite." "I don't want to be fetishized for being fat, because I'd like to get rid of it," Sayre proclaims. "I would like to not be the funny eunuch at every party again." Sayre's "International Order of Sodomites" (I.O.S.) gathers once a month for "The Meeting," honoring an artist or a cultural work that is iconic to the gay community. The next installment of "The Meeting" is dubbed "Bottom Appreciation Day" and hits New York's Joe's Pub on Feb. 15. Special guests include Kim David Smith, Trapper Felides, Chris Tyler and Brian Moylan. In other news, "Sparkle & Circulate with Justin Sayre," the o...

Nelson Mandela's will leaves money for family and staff but nothing for Winnie
Guardian (UK) - about 4 years
Widow Graça Machel likely to waive share of inheritance but feuds over anti-apartheid leader's trusts could still go to court Nelson Mandela left money in his will to children and grandchildren, staff and the African National Congress (ANC) but gave nothing to his ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, it emerged on Monday. The family of South Africa's first black president, who died two months ago aged 95, gathered behind closed doors at his foundation in Johannesburg to hear the reading of the will, which carves up an estate estimated at 46m rand (£2.52m). The most conspicuous omission was Madikizela-Mandela, his wife of 38 years during the struggle against racial apartheid. They divorced in 1996 but became close again towards the end of his life and, along with his third wife, Graça Machel, she was at his bedside when he died. It also emerged that the former president's daughters, each given $300,000 (£184,000) by him during his lifetime, get no further money now. But Machel's chi...

South African opposition party's plan to field black candidate crumbles
Guardian (UK) - about 4 years
Democratic Alliance accuses Mamphela Ramphele of reneging on deal to join party before this year's presidential elections A historic pact enabling South Africa's main opposition party to field a black presidential candidate for the first time has collapsed in less than a week. The Democratic Alliance (DA) accused anti-apartheid stalwart Mamphela Ramphele of reneging on a deal to join the party before this year's elections and said "she cannot be trusted". The acrimonious end to one of the shortest, most shambolic political marriages in history underlines the struggle of South Africa's numerous opposition parties to mount a united challenge to the two-decade dominance of the African National Congress (ANC). Last Tuesday the DA, eager to shake off its reputation as a party reflecting white interests, paraded Ramphele – a co-founder of the black consciousness movement who was mother to Steve Biko's children – as its candidate for president. Kissing and embracing DA leader Helen Zil...

Agreement hailed as first step to ending conflict, though doubts remain and Obama says political detainees must be released South Sudanese officials and rebels have signed a ceasefire agreement , hailed as the first step towards ending an ethnically charged conflict that has killed thousands of people.

It was greeted by cheers from regional mediators and diplomats, and was welcomed in Washington.

Central African Republic president's resignation brings joy and fear
Guardian (UK) - about 4 years
Residents take to streets to celebrate Michel Djotodia's departure, but concerns grow of revenge attacks on Muslims The interim president of the Central African Republic (CAR) has resigned after a disastrous nine-month rule, prompting celebrations on the streets but fresh anxiety about a power vacuum and revenge attacks against Muslims. The fate of Michel Djotodia, a rebel who became the country's first Muslim leader only to preside over its descent towards civil war, was sealed at a regional summit in neighbouring Chad. The prime minister, Nicolas Tiangaye, with whom he had a fractious relationship, also stepped down. Djotodia, 65, has appeared impotent amid a cycle of attacks and counter-attacks by Christian and Muslim militias that has left thousands of people dead and forced a million from their homes. He became deeply unpopular, particularly among the nation's Christian majority. But Djotodia's departure leaves the state in the hands of a weak transitional government and fac...

Oil-rich state capital Bentiu is left a ghost town as soldiers loyal to President Salva Kir try to recapture it from rival Riek Machar Thousands of people fled from a city in South Sudan on Thursday as government forces launched an offensive against rebels, wreaking fresh havoc in the world's newest country. Bentiu, capital of oil-rich Unity state, was said to be a ghost town as soldiers loyal to the president, Salva Kiir, tried to recapture it from his rival, Riek Machar. Even the hospital was reportedly deserted. The UN said clashes and continuing mobilisation were reported in several locations in Bentiu, where there were reports of looting and shops being destroyed. Eight thousand citizens fled to impromptu UN camps, while others were hiding in remote areas and swamps.

Gay Briton facing jail in Uganda over stolen intimate images may be deported
Guardian (UK) - about 4 years
Bernard Randall was due to stand trial with partner, but believes officials are using visa issue to avoid accusations of homophobia A gay British man facing a possible jail term in Uganda after pictures of him having sex were made public now believes he will be deported back to the UK instead. Bernard Randall, 65, and his Ugandan partner Albert Cheptoyek, 30, were due to stand trial on 4 December. The couple were charged after intimate images were published in an Ugandan newspaper following the theft of a laptop containing private videos during a break-in at Randall's holiday home. But the retired banking computer analyst, originally from Faversham, Kent, says he has learned that Ugandan officials refused an extension to his visa that would have been required for the court case to go ahead. The visa issue has been used by Ugandan authorities "at the highest level", he believes, as a convenient excuse to avoid accusations of homophobia by global campaigners. "The policeman ... sai...
