New York artist creates ‘art’ that is invisible and collectors are paying millions

New York artist creates ‘art’ that is invisible and collectors are paying millions


27-year-old artist Lana Newstrom says she is the first artist in the world to create invisible “art.”  In a documentary, “This is That,” traveled to her empty studio to learn more about Lana and her unusual  artistic process.

“Just because you can’t see anything, doesn’t mean I didn’t put hours of work into creating a particular piece”

Lana Newstrom, Artist

“Art is about imagination and that is what my work demands of the people interacting with it. You have to imagine a painting or sculpture is in front of you,” says Newstrom.

Paul Rooney, Lana’s agent, believes she might be the greatest artist alive working today: “When she describes what you can’t see, you begin to realize why one of her invisible works can fetch upwards of a million dollars.” said Rooney.

Do you think Fashion is about what you wear?

Do you think Fashion is about what you wear?

Every woman asks herself a question every morning, whether to go to work or just hang with the girls? The answer is no, alot of women ask themselves what they should wear. It’s not about what you wear, it’s all about who you wear. Every girl can afford to buy a top but everyone can’t afford a top with a name.

Before the 21st century people called it clothes,  a shirt, a skirt or a dress. But today we have names like Zara, DKNY, Prada, Gucci, Dolce & so many more. It’s really funny because people stopped saying “Nice outfit” and now-a-days all they say “damn Prada huh…!?!?!”

Has the fashion industry changed the way people think about style? It’s disappointing to see people going to the gym only to wear the perfect dress. In the movie Bride Wars, Kate Hudson said “You don’t alter Vera Wang for your body; you alter your body for Vera Wang”. There are movies out there that have given women another reason to be judged. Gone are the days, when women look at themselves & try to tailor an outfit for the perfect evening. Today it’s all about tailoring your body for a dress. Women always have been put through the pressures of looking good to impress a man but today it’s all seems to be about making another woman jealous. The bigger the brand, the more the jealousy. I used to remember looking at catalogs to either pick a dress or the material, but now it’s all about which diet plan does one need to get into the outfit.

The biggest crime this industry has done is show size 0 runway models. First of all, women don’t like numbers, hence, you never ask a woman her age or how much she weighs because woman like to judge themselves but not be judged. Sometimes when one calls another fat, she doesn’t look in the mirror to see if she is fat but looks in the mirror to understand if that’s what her husband or boyfriend feels. Women make fashion a part of every aspect in life. I have seen young girls still in school wearing clothes I still can’t afford but want to buy just to fit in. Before peer pressure was all about sex & drugs but today it’s played its way into fashion as well. If you don’t wear the latest brands you will never fit in. This is the message the fashion industry has given young children. School children today know who D&G, Prada, Mango and Zara are.

Today it’s not just about clothing, it’s also about who you are, as people are judged or accepted based on what they are rather than who they are. You maybe the dumbest girl in the world but you will be my best friend if you are spending all daddies’ hard earned money on designer labelled cloths than a proper education. If you are not educated with 16 years of academics, you can always work in the fashion industry as a model, beautician or a stylist but not as lawyers, doctors or CEOs.

India’s first Mars satellite ‘Mangalyaan’ enters orbit

India’s first Mars satellite ‘Mangalyaan’ enters orbit


India has successfully put a satellite into orbit around Mars, becoming the fourth country to do so.

The Mangalyaan robotic probe, one of the cheapest interplanetary missions ever, will soon begin work studying the Red Planet’s atmosphere.

A 24-minute engine burn slowed the probe down enough to allow it to be captured by Mars’ gravity.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the country had achieved the “near impossible”.

Speaking at the mission control centre in the southern city of Bangalore he said: “The odds were stacked against us. Of 51 missions attempted in world only 21 have succeeded. We have prevailed.”

Only the US, Europe and Russia have previously sent missions to Mars, but India is the first country to succeed on its first attempt.

The latest US satellite, Maven, arrived at Mars on Monday.

US space agency Nasa congratulated its Indian counterpart, the Indian Space and Research Organization (Isro), on Wednesday’s success.

“We congratulate @ISRO for its Mars arrival! @MarsOrbiter joins the missions studying the Red Planet,” the agency tweeted.

From early in the morning, there was an atmosphere of excitement and tension at the Indian Space Agency’s Mission Tracking Centre in Bangalore.

Scientists, many of them women and several of them young, were seated in front of their computer monitors tracking the progress of Mangalyaan.

Giant screens above their heads fed a steady stream of data, graphics and sequence of operations. The first whoops broke out when Mangalyaan successfully fired up its liquid engine, the first in a series of critical moves to make sure that the spacecraft was able to launch into the planet’s gravitational pull.

Then there was an agonising 20 minutes, when Mangalyaan disappeared behind Mars and beyond contact.

But there was no mistaking the moment, when the scientists all rose as one, cheered, clapped, hugged each other and exchanged high fives – ­ confirmation that Mangalyaan was now on an elliptical orbit around Mars.

After PM Modi’s congratulations, they poured out into the open and the bright sunlight, beaming as they took in the adulation.

“Thrilled to be a part of history,” one young scientist told me. “It’s like hitting a golf ball from Bangalore to London and getting it into the hole in one go,” deputy operations director, BN Ramkrishna said. “It’s got to be that precise.”


‘Better than cricket’

PM Narendra Modi: “We have dared to reach out into the unknown”

Mr Modi congratulated the scientists and said: “Today all of India should celebrate our scientists. Schools, colleges should applaud this.”

“If our cricket team wins a tournament, the nation celebrates. Our scientists’ achievement is greater,” he said.

The total cost of the Indian mission has been put at 4.5bn rupees ($74m; £45m), which makes it one of the cheapest interplanetary space missions ever. Nasa’s recent Maven mission cost $671m.

The Mangalyaan probe will now set about taking pictures of the planet and studying its atmosphere.

One key goal is to try to detect methane in the Martian air, which could be an indicator of biological activity at, or more likely just below, the surface.

Nasa has put four robot rovers on Mars since 1997 – the latest and biggest of them all, the one-tonne vehicle known as Curiosity, landed on the Red Planet in August 2012. Unlike Curiosity, the Indian probe will not land on Mars.

Mangalyaan – more formally referred to as Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) – was launched from the Sriharikota spaceport on the coast of the Bay of Bengal on 5 November 2013.

Dom Kennedy, Curren$y, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, The Diplomats, Lil’ Kim & The Wu-Tang Clan Perform At The #SOURCE360 Concert In NYC

Dom Kennedy, Curren$y, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, The Diplomats, Lil’ Kim & The Wu-Tang Clan Perform At The #SOURCE360 Concert In NYC


Saturday night was a historic one for the culture at #SOURCE360

The only thing preventing the roof from coming off of The Barclays Center last night at the 1st annual #SOURCE360 Concert was the infrastructure itself. Quite honestly, everyone inside made sure they did everything they could to make it happen. From the onset, with great opening performances from two of the brightest independent rappers in the game–Dom Kennedy and Curren$y–and an incredible set from Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, there waasn’t a dull moment in sight, and the crowd fed the artists with energy all night.


The Diplomats began what was a scintillating stretch for New York rap at #SOURCE360, and with Lil’ Kim and the official Wu-Tang Clan reunion to follow, one could sense the anxiety in the crowd. If the tension could be represented with a rope, it would be so taut one would be able to cut it with a dull scissors. Classics upon classics–that’s what Lil’ Kim brought to the stage, including a special guest appearance from bothMaino and Havoc of Mobb Deep. The Queen Bee had it all: Shmoney dancing, twerking, vicious bars (All About The Benjamins, Money, Power, Respect), and a stage presence that most female emcees–in fact, any emcee–would envy no matter how long they’ve been rapping. She didn’t take the opportunity to drop any subtle hints or dis shots at Iggy Azalea, or Nicki Minaj, which is what most expected, but rather stepped up to the plate and killed it.


Prior to Lil’ Kim, The Diplomats hit the stage, all four of them (Freekey Zekey included) and performed some of their classics: “Dipset Anthem”, “Oh Boy”, “Salute”, “We Fly High”, and that’s just to name a few. There couldn’t be a better lead into the Wu-Tang Clan reunion. Two of New York’s most important and genre-defining eras showcasing exactly why they mean so much to this culture on stage at the biggest venue in New York’s hottest borough. It was truly a night to be remembered.


The Wu-Tang Clan reunion had been talked about for quite some time, but none of the hype, promotion or advertisement–not even the quote the RZA fed the New York Times about the moment–prepared anybody for the moment the RZA, Ghostface Killah,Method ManRaekwonCappadonna, and the rest of the surviving members of The Wu-Tang Clan hit the stage at The Barclays Center. It wasn’t 4 or 5 of the members, and 1 or 2 of the members didn’t happen to “forget” to show up to the venue. All 9 of them, on the stage. Strong and united–yes, even RZA and Raekwon.

U.S. airstrikes hit ISIS inside Syria for first time

U.S. airstrikes hit ISIS inside Syria for first time

By Jim Sciutto, Mariano Castillo and Holly Yan at CNN

(CNN) — American jets began bombing ISIS targets in Syria early Tuesday, raising U.S. involvement in the war-torn country and sending a forceful message to the terror group.

The airstrikes focused on the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa, a U.S. official told CNN, though other locations were hit as well. They’re the first strikes against the terror group inside the country since President Barack Obama’s announcement this month that he was prepared to expand the American efforts beyond targets in Iraq.

All foreign partners participating in the strikes with the United States are Arab countries, a senior U.S. military official told CNN. Those nations are Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Jordan.

Diplomatic sources told CNN that Qatar was also involved, though it was not clear whether Qatar actually conducted airstrikes itself.

The U.S. and “partner nation forces” began striking ISIS targets using fighters, bombers and Tomahawk missiles, Pentagon spokesman Rear Adm. John Kirby said, though he didn’t specify a geographic location.

Citing the ongoing operations, Kirby said the Pentagon would not provide additional details immediately. But a U.S. military official said the strikes are meant to target the ability of ISIS to command and control, resupply and train.

Tomahawk missiles launched from the sea initiated the strike, followed by bombers and fighters, a senior U.S. military official told CNN.

The goal with this first move is to have an initial, definitive blow, the official said, describing the pace of the operation as intense.

Most of the spots hit were hard targets such as buildings, a senior U.S. official told CNN.

A post office, a recruitment center and a building in the governor’s compound were among the structures in Raqqa hit by U.S. airstrikes, Syrian opposition activists said.

There was no immediate word about casualties, the activists said.

Power went out in the city shortly after the airstrikes but was restored later Tuesday morning.

A ‘punch in the nose’

Until now, ISIS has been able to take over cities and operate in Syria with near impunity. Now, it’s coming under attack.

“This is the punch in the nose to the bully that we talked about on the playground,” former Delta Force officer James Reese said. “ISIS is the bully, and we just punched him in the nose.”

With the airstrikes, the United States enters a new level of engagement in the ongoing Syrian civil war. Obama had resisted U.S. military action in Syria, but as the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq made sweeping advances in both Middle Eastern neighbors, calls for such a step grew.

“I have made it clear that we will hunt down terrorists who threaten our country, wherever they are,” Obama said in a September 10 speech. “That means I will not hesitate to take action against ISIL in Syria, as well as Iraq. This is a core principle of my presidency: if you threaten America, you will find no safe haven.”

The message of the speech was clear — it was a matter of when, not if — the United States would carry out airstrikes inside Syria.

A U.S. intelligence official said that while law enforcement is aware the airstrikes against ISIS in Syria could incite a response, there is no evidence to suggest any terrorist strike is in the works against the United States.

Last week, U.S. officials told CNN that the military had everything in place it needed to strike ISIS inside Syria and was awaiting Obama’s go-ahead to do so.

For weeks, intelligence and military targeting specialists have been working around the clock on a list of targets, the officials said. It is unlikely that the President reviewed all the targets individuall, but was presented broad guidance with analysis about the risks of bombing inside Syria, as well as the rewards in terms of attacking ISIS.

Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel told the House Armed Services Committee last week that he and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey signed off on plans to strike ISIS in Syria.

“CENTCOM’s plan includes targeted actions against ISIL safe havens in Syria — including its command and control, logistics capabilities, and infrastructure,” Hagel said last week. “Our actions will not be restrained by a border that exists in name only.”

CNN’s Steve Almasy, Jim Acosta, Barbara Starr, Arwa Damon, Pam Brown, Mohammed Tawfeeq, Elise Labott and Josh Levs contributed to this report.
