Dark and dingy rooms don't look fit for humans, with exposed electrical wires and panels, venting pipes and piles of junk and old clothes everywhere. Tenant Shelley Mack, who disclosed the pictures to also revealed that there were three fires while she lived...

  • 14 Fashion Designers on Whether They’d Dress Melania Trump as First Lady

    Time Magazine ^ | Cady Lang
    "I have no interest whatsoever in dressing Melania Trump"  Fashion functions as a reflection of the times that we live in, which is why it should come as no surprise that sartorial choices can be extremely political. Michelle Obama’s embrace of young American designers of color like Tracy Reese and Jason Wu during her two terms as First Lady or Melania Trump’s choice to wear a dress to the RNC by Roksanda Ilincic, viewed as a nod to how Ilincic’s Serbian background paralleled Melania’s own Slovenian upbringing. (Obama has also supported the popular designer.) A style decision at momentous...

    It shouldn't be a surprise, really, but still it's a bit startling to hear just how well the Rolling Stones can play the blues. Strip away the glitz, the oversized stages and the pyrotechnics, and you're left with two terrific guitarists, a frontman who can play an exuberant harp — and a drummer named Charlie Watts. No wonder Blue & Lonesome sounds so solid. Their first studio album in more than a decade has the simplest of concepts: Put the guys in a studio for three days, give them a songbook heavy on Jimmy Reed, Willie Dixon and Howlin' Wolf,...

The resort was developed in the 1920s for heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post.  After he acquired the resort, Trump redeveloped the main house and created his own private quarters - decked out in gold.

A new study – titled, “Me, Myself and My Killfie: Characterizing and Preventing Selfie Deaths” – found that 127 people have died in a 29-month span through last September while trying to get photos of themselves at dangerous or exotic locations. The overwhelming majority of the deaths compiled by researchers occurred in India, where 76 people died. In the United States, there were eight selfie-related deaths.

The lavish building can be found on Fifth Avenue and is home to the Republican's business as well as his three-level, 66th floor penthouse.

    A lost sketchbook belonging to Vincent van Gogh includes 65 never-before-seen sketches. The sketchbook - which is set to be published today - contains drawings from his most significant period while he was living in France. During this time, he was suffering from mental health problems which famously led to the artist cutting off his ear. However, he also produced some of his most famous paintings in this period. The discovery was made by retired University of Toronto professor Bogomila Welsh-Ovcharov. She was asked by an art scholar in France to look at an album and was left stunned by...

Scout the location carefully Use every tool possible to get the perfect shot, including Google Maps and compasses, to help you locate a spot where you'll be able to see the moon as well as the reference object you want to include.

    Should creative pros worry about the 16GB limit on the new MacBook Pro? No, because you don't need it. Here's why. As Adrian Kingsley-Hughes pointed out in his article Do you need 32GB of RAM? the answer is probably no. But why? Isn't more RAM always better? Random access memory (RAM) is a computer's scratch pad where work in process is stored. RAM is power hungry, hot, and -- less relevant at MBP prices -- expensive. When RAM fills up, the operating system starts paging least recently used blocks of data out of RAM into storage to free up capacity....

    Vincent van Gogh purportedly regarded the pastoral scene of wheat, cypress trees and mountains as one of his “best” landscapes — but a journalist insists the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s $95 million masterpiece is a fake. James Grundvig’s new book, “Breaking van Gogh,” claims the painting titled Wheat Field with Cypresses was really made in the late 1800s by Emile Schuffenecker, “a third-level impressionist painter” and suspected forger. Look carefully at the canvas in Gallery 822 on the Met’s second floor, and you can see some of the signs of a forgery, Grundvig says.

    I recently went to the Getty Villa on the Malibu coastline in California, and wandered around looking at the antiquities of ancient Rome and Greece. Currently, the display features some very intricate mosaics, decorated vases, and several funereal portraits that would apparently decorate the mummies of the aristocratic dead. What struck me most is how detailed, beautiful, and lifelike were the renditions of humans and animals. The lions snarled, the snakes writhed, the warriors flexed, and the portraits of the dead, almost all of them tragically young, gazed with hope and eagerness, and bright expressive eyes. Western art has always...

He said pro-Assad and regime loyalists were sharing the picture and lying about its origins saying: “From a Syrian artist to America, using...

    The refugees are arriving on a continent that since World War II has become home to a third of the world’s immigrants. Europe’s major countries, which once sent their huddled masses to the United States, now have foreign-born populations comparable to that of the United States. But only some European minds and fewer European hearts have adjusted to that reality. Even in the U.S., which John F. Kennedy called “a nation of immigrants,” immigration is a divisive issue—and always has been. In the 1750s Benjamin Franklin worried that too many Germans were coming to Pennsylvania. He said they had a...
