    VENICE, CA — Hunter Biden moved out of his Venice canals rental and is now pushing forward in his art career, he tells Artnet. President Biden's son has been making art since he was a child and although he has no formal training, his work is represented by dealer Georges Bergès. He also has his gallery show debut coming to New York and a private showing in Los Angeles scheduled for this fall. His abstract work highlights patterns, bold color and he tells the New York Times it's "keeping him sane." Biden prefers painting on a tabletop, horizontally. He doesn't...

    Former President Barack Obama says he's troubled by the onslaught of new state election laws that have passed in the wake of the 2020 presidential election, adding that rhetoric delegitimizing the voting process is a "threat to democracy." In a Friday interview with Good Morning America, Obama said, "We're now seeing state legislatures try to further suppress the vote or allow partisan politics to infect voting results and election results. That troubles me." A number of Republican-led states, such as Texas and Georgia, have introduced new legislation tighten or restricting rules around voting, arguing that these measures would protect the...

They need new leadership to step up and take charge,” he wrote in a Twitter post. “New revelations that Fulton County is unable to produce all ballot drop box transfer documents will be investigated thoroughly, as we have...

    Tomorrow, The Committee will bundle up Joe Biden, titular president of the United States, and take him for a nice ride across the big, big ocean in a very shiny airplane. Weeee! No details have been released yet about what flavors of ice cream he will enjoy, but The Committee’s press arm has been full of stories with titles like ‘Three things to watch on Biden’s first foreign trip’. This is not a difficult assignment. The big boys and girls who arrange Joe’s play-dates have told all his favorite friends in the media exactly what to say. And just a...

  • Pride Month Begins, Celebrations Absent in Oberlin

    The Oberlin Review ^ | 4 June 2021 | Oberlin Review Editorial Board
    For the first time in the College’s history, students are studying during a summer semester, making this a momentous first as we celebrate Pride Month on campus. We are, however, four days into June, and we’ve heard little talk from student organizations, faculty, or the College about events to mark the occasion. In the town of Oberlin, there is a similar void of broadly-advertised Pride programming. While students are sure to observe the occasion on their own, it seems like a waste that this unique confluence of events will happen without official recognition. Oberlin can definitely be a great place...

    Today we're going to try and use modern technology to breathe some life into the historical portraits of the very first Presidents of the United States by adding facial animations. The history teaches us that United States declared independence from Great Britain, on 4th July 1776, during the American Revolutionary War that lasted about 8 years. The Declaration of Independence has been largely written by Thomas Jefferson who was a member of five-man committee, appointed by the Continental Congress, that included John Adams, Roger Sherman, Benjamin Franklin and Robert Livingston. The revolutionary war ended with the Treaty of Paris on...

    U.S. prosecutors this week put a price tag on damage to the U.S. Capitol from the Jan. 6 breach — $1.5 million so far — and for the first time are asking defendants to cover some of the bill in plea offers, prosecutors and defense lawyers said. The U.S. attorney’s office in Washington cited the damage estimate Wednesday in court and in plea papers filed in the case of Paul Hodgkins, 38. The Tampa crane operator pleaded guilty to one felony count of obstructing an official proceeding of Congress and faces sentencing July 19 in Washington. “Your client acknowledges that...

    A preacher in Turkey has said that men should grow beards to make clear they are not women. Islamic speaker Murat Bayaral spoke on TV show Fatih Medreseleri this weekend, slamming men without beards. Bayaral said: 'Men should grow beards. One of the two body parts that separate men from women is the beard,' ..'For example, if you see a man with long hair from afar you may think he is a woman if he does not have a beard. Because nowadays women and men dress similarly. Allah forbid! You could be possessed by indecent thoughts.'
