NY’s Met to sublease modern art annex in surprise move

New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art made a surprise announcement Friday it would reboot stalled renovations of its modern and contemporary wing, and temporarily turn over the building housing the works to the nearby Frick Collection. In 2014, the Met had announced it would rebuild its southwest wing that runs along Fifth Avenue at an estimated cost of $600 million (around P32.4 billion) --- but its deteriorating financial situation forced the museum to rein in its plans. Despite pulling in record crowds, the storied institution --- one of the world's largest art museums withcollections spanning the globe from antiquity onward --- was forced to cut costs by curbing hiring, ann...Keep on reading: NY’s Met to sublease modern art annex in surprise move.....»»

Abraham Lincoln’s hat in US museum questioned for its authenticity

It has been a question plaguing the museum dedicated to one of America's greatest presidents: Is the hat real? The hat in question is of the stovepipe variety that adorned the head of Abraham Lincoln --- recognized for his fashion sense and lauded for ending slavery. The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Illinois had displayed the chocolate brown, beaver fur hat as one that had in fact been on the 16th US president's head. It is a prized possession, a big visitor draw, and valued at $6.5 million (almost P352 million) --- one of only three such Lincoln hats displayed at an American museum. But it may not be Lincoln's hat after all. FBI analysts and cura...Keep on reading: Abraham Lincoln’s hat in US museum questioned for its authenticity.....»»

Experts: Mayan altar hints at ancient intrigue

    GUATEMALA CITY --- An altar found at Guatemala's La Corona site suggests the Mayan dynasty of Kaanul, known as the Snake Kings, acted like its namesake in slowly squeezing the rival kingdom of Tikal, archaeologists said Friday.   A team led by Marcello Canuto of Tulane University uncovered the carved stone altar in the northern Peten region near the Mexico border.   When it was first found in 2017, the altar was encased in the roots of a tree in a collapsed temple. It took a year to painstaking pry the massive stone slab from the roots, fully excavate it and move it to Guatemala City, where it was presented this week at a museum.   ...Keep on reading: Experts: Mayan altar hints at ancient intrigue.....»»

Turkey court rejects plea to open Hagia Sofia for Islamic prayer

  Istanbul,Turkey-- Turkey's top court on Thursday turned down a plea to open the Hagia Sofia, an Istanbul landmark that is now a museum after serving as both a church and a mosque over its long history, for Muslim worshipping.   The Constitutional Court rejected an association's demand that the Hagia Sofia be opened for Muslim prayers on "non-competence" grounds, indicating it was not the proper instance to allow any change, the official Anadolu news agency reported.   In its plea, the association had claimed that barring prayers at Hagia Sofia was breaching the right to freedom of expression and conscience.   The Haberturk website said the d...Keep on reading: Turkey court rejects plea to open Hagia Sofia for Islamic prayer.....»»

Workers urge Roque: Check market prices

Labor groups urged presidential spokesperson Harry Roque on Monday to go to market --- a nod to a nursery rhyme --- to get a sense of how Filipinos were hard-pressed in stretching their budgets amid soaring prices of basic commodities. They issued the challenge after Roque said on Friday that while the 6.4-percent inflation rate in August was higher than usual, "it's nothing to be worried about." The public may not find comfort in the Palace official's assurance as fuel prices have increased anew, a development that can thwart efforts to tame inflation. For the fifth week in a row, oil companies in the country increased pump prices. Prices of diesel, gasoline and kerosene we...Keep on reading: Workers urge Roque: Check market prices.....»»

Paris official seeks to outlaw Airbnb rentals in city center

The Paris city council member in charge of housing said Thursday that he would propose outlawing home rentals via Airbnb and other websites in the city center, accusing the service of forcing residents out of the French capital. Ian Brossat told AFP that he would also seek to prohibit the purchase of secondary residences in Paris, saying such measures were necessary to keep the city from becoming an "open-air museum". "One residence out of every four no longer houses Parisians," said Brossat, who is expected to head the Communist party list for European Parliament elections next year. With some 60,000 apartments on offer in the city, Paris is the biggest market for Airbnb, which...Keep on reading: Paris official seeks to outlaw Airbnb rentals in city center.....»»

What’s GRU? A look at Russia’s shadowy military spies

MOSCOW --- GRU isn't as well-known a baleful acronym as KGB or FSB. But Russia's military intelligence service is attracting increasing attention as allegations mount of devious and deadly operations on and off the field of battle. The latest charge came Wednesday, when Britain identified two suspects in this year's nerve-agent poisonings as GRU agents. An overview of the GRU: THE AGENCY Formally named the Main Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces, the agency is almost universally referred to by its former acronym GRU. It is the most shadowy of Russia's secret services. When its previous director Igor Sergun died in 2016, the Kremlin announcement was so t...Keep on reading: What’s GRU?
