Kerry and Hagel to Meet with the Russians

U.S. and Russian officials are going to discuss the upcoming summit between Presidents Obama and Putin. The planned meeting between Mr. Obama and Mr. Putin is in doubt as Russia continues to refuse to return whistleblower Edward Snowden to the United States. Other obstacles to further cooperation center on the conflict in Syria, where Russia continues to aid the Assad regime. Russia does however want to move forward with the Syrian peace talks, which were agreed to in May but have not materialized. In addition, the U.S. and Russia have disagreements about nuclear weapons control and Iran.

Glamorous artwork of Tamara de Lempicka at auction
Tamara de Lempicka, a prominent female artist of the Art Deco era, was famous for her expressive and sensual female paintings. Her interwar artwork earned her the nickname "The Baroness with a Brush." Lempicka's portraits often depicted her elite subjects in tantalizing textures that glowed with flattering light. Lempicka's art portrayed influences from Neoclassicism and Cubism to Italian Mannerists such as Bronzino and Botticelli. Her ability to blend these classic and contemporary elements made her paintings unique. Born in 1898 in Warsaw, Poland, Lempicka was born into a wealthy home and spent most of her young age living in Italy and Switzerland. During this time, she was primarily impressed by the works of the Mannerist and Renaissance masters. She laid the foundations for her artistic interests. Fleeing in France after the start of the Russian Revolution in 1917, Lempicka met artists Jean Cocteau and Pablo Picasso. In France, she became a prominent part of the Parisian avant-garde movement. Fearing World War II, the artist moved to New York in 1939, where she developed her postwar Art Deco style. She continued to create paintings in this style for the rest of her life. Tamara De Lempicka Drawings can be seen online. Today, Tamara de Lempicka's works from the Parisian avant-garde of the 1920s and 1930s are the most sought after. It was during this period that the artist enjoyed high praise, painting dukes and counts. Her portraits of women are also in great demand in the art market. Among the top ten works of art by Tamara de Lempicka, paintings of women have been sold at record prices. There are many other artworks that will be sold in the auctions, to see all this information see the Auction Previews of AuctionDaily. The artist enjoyed a larger audience during her stay in France. However, after the 1930s, Lempicka struggled to find the right subject. She eliminated the lawsuit for her job. However, her art became popular again after the 1973 exhibition of her interwar artwork at the Palais du Luxembourg in Paris. Tamara de Lempicka's art has been in high demand since her death in 1980 and attracted prominent personalities such as Madonna and Barbara Streisand. Madonna was such a fan of Lempicka's art that she added Tamara Lempicka images in the video for her famous song "Vogue." The singer is also known to be a prominent collector of Lempicka's artwork and helped regain her prominence. Throughout the years, Tamara de Lempicka's nudes and portraits have been the top pick among glamorous art collectors, including celebrities. Lempicka's 1927 portrait titled Le réve (Rafaëla sur fond vert) was sold at a Sotheby's auction in 2011 in New York for a record price of $ 8.5 million. Another prominent feature of Tamara de Lempicka's work is her appeal to fashion. In her self-portraits, the artist often wore well-known brands such as Coco Chanel. She led to the reproduction of her portraits in magazines such as Harper's Bazaar. A notable example is the famous portrait of Ira Perrot, titled La Musicienne, where Perrot plays the mandolin in a long blue dress. This portrait appeared on the cover of the German magazine Die Dame in 1930. La Musicienne broke Lempicka's previous record by fetching $ 9.1 million at Christie's auction in November 2018 in New York. In November 2019, Lempicka's La Tunique Rose (1927), which portrays her popular subject Rafaela Fano, was sold at a Tamara De Lempicka auction in New York for $ 13.3 million. It broke Lempicka's previous record with the highest estimate of $ 8 million. Rafaela, according to Lempicka, was "the most beautiful woman I have ever seen (Lempicka)". Lempicka's artwork broke its November 2019 record just three months later, on February 5, 2020. Christie's Impressionist and Modern Art auction in London sold Lempicka's Portrait of Marjorie Ferry for $ 21.1 million. The 1932 Jazz Age monochrome portrait features cabaret singer Ferry in Paris. The Marjorie Ferry painting was originally commissioned by the singer's wealthy husband. He portrays Ferry in Lempicka's signature style that includes a play of light and sharp angles. The same painting was also previously offered at auction in 2009 and sold for $ 4.9 million to Wolfgang Joop, a German fashion designer. The art market has seen a steady increase in demand for works of art by Tamara de Lempicka in recent years. Nearly 20 paintings by the Art Deco painter have raised more than $ 1 million at auctions. The glamor and sensuality of her artwork and the availability of Lempicka's finest works are some of the reasons for the constant demand in the collector's market. Media source: AuctionDaily

What Do The Protests in Seoul Look Like Now?
This past Friday the Korean Constitutional Court (think of it as the US Supreme Court) ruled unanimously that Park Geun Hye should be officially impeached. Since most of the country wanted this (at her lowest I think she has a 10% approval rating) there were massive celebrations in the streets. There were musicians, free food stalls, and fireworks. Now of course there are plenty of (mostly elderly) people rioting and claiming that this is the end of democracy (when really its just an example of democracy working...) but they are in contained areas surrounded by police. As far as I know 2 people died and many more are injured but its been due to violence by the pro-Park side (for example, the rioters were trying to flip over a police bus and knocked over a speaker which fell and killed an elderly man who was part of the riot...) I walked through the celebration area the day after the announcement if you'd like to take a look and hear the sounds. Skip to 4:20 unless you want to see my friends new cafe opening party haha :) If you could all do me a really big favor: Please give this video a thumbs up on YouTube here. People have been leaving incredibly nasty comments targeting myself and my family (I have deleted and blocked most of them) and this video now has some of the most down-votes I've ever had on a video :/ That would really mean a lot! Thank you ㅠㅠ Korea now has to vote for a new president so that will be starting as we speak :)
Cosplaying while black: are we making our communities unsafe for nonwhite members?
It's all fun and games. Until it's not. I've mentioned Marvel's race problem before, but the truth is the problem is everywhere. There are very few positive representations of people of color in the media today. Some of this is because those in charge of casting, writing, and producing the media we love are almost all white. There are about three nonwhite people in America for every nonwhite character we see on screen, and of those characters, how many of them get screentime or character arcs that don't pidgeonhole them in a stereotype? If you don't think there's a problem, you might want to look again. These problems are psrt of fandom too. Since the media we're celebrating is flawed, it's extremely difficult for us to avoid internlizing the harmful messages that we consume. It's not somehing that can be done passively- it takes real work. Chaka Cumberbatch has been a cosplayer for years, and has been the target of harassment because she cosplays as characters that aren't black like- she is. It's not like she has a lot of options- how many black female characters can you name off the top of your head? Storm, Princess Tiana- she's built some amazing costumes for these characters. But why should Hollywood's diversity problem be hers? The underlying message feels very much like: "This isn't for you, you're not welcome here". Why would anyone want to send that kind of message to a fellow fan? In an interview with HaveYouNerd, she mentioned that even people who didn't overtly exclude her could sometimes make her feel like she didn't belong: "Sometimes, you’ll run into some tokenism, or people will start to get a little too comfortable with you – and it’s always painfully awkward because then it’s like you’re forced to walk this tightrope between sticking up for yourself and forcing the group to have an uncomfortable conversation about race, stereotypes, and why the things they’re saying are problematic. I’ve had times when I was hanging out with a group that was predominately male, that I was accused of “playing the race card,” “overreacting” or “taking things too seriously...” Fandom, we need to do better than this. We need to make our fellow fans of color feel like they're in a safe environment, where they can voice their discomfort and not have their feelings dismissed. Where they can come out and have fun and not worry about being tokenized or harassed. We get so enthusiastic over every new trailer release- why can't we show cosplayers of color the same enthusiasm? We freak out every time nerds are misrepresented in the media, but we can't be bothered to stand up for our fellows when they feel attacked or hurt? And before you say that it's "just about hurt feelings" (like feelings don't matter!?), consider this... On September 10th, 2014, Darren Hunt was shot and killed by the police. While the initial report suggested he had been "lunging towards officers", witnesses and the autopsy confirmed that he had in fact been going in the opposite direction. He was shot in the back. Furthermore,, he was still in costume from a character cosplay. He had a toy sword with him. The police shot an unarmed black man, and they blamed their mistake on his cosplay. Part of making our communities safer needs to include effort to make the WORLD we live in a safer place. It should never be acceptable for the police to recklessly commit homicide like this, but we've seen this story repeating over and over again. Darren Hunt was a fellow fan, but the silence from fan communities was deafening. We're fans. We love heroes in capes that swoop in to save the day when all hope is lost. It's an escape. The thing about escaping into fantasies (like we do with films and comics and tv shows), is that all the problems of the real world follow us there. As nerds and as fans, we have no excuse when we ignore the very real problems our fellows face because of their race (or their gender, their sexuality, or the size of their bodies). Silently ignoring the problem, or taking a "neutral" stance does nothing to help the people endangered by racism. All it does is give more power to those whose actions are deliberately harmful. We as fans need to do so much more to make our communities safer. We need to educate ourselves. We need to demand more diverse guests and panels at our conventions, vocalize your support for fans of color (not talking over them, but listening to their needs and adding your voice to theirs), support writers that are diversifying their work, and advocating for change when the systems that are supposed to be protecting us are applying uneven, brutal force against people of color. We need to listen. If you're still scratching your head, just ask yourself: what would my favorite hero do?
