Mystery Artist Wanksy Paints Penises Around Potholes To Get Them Fixed [NSFW]
Armed with only a can of spray paint, an artist located in Manchester, England, is determined to rid the streets of potholes. How does one get rid of a potholes when city officials don't take the issue seriously? By drawing penises on them of course. The anonymous artist goes by the name "Wanksy", a clever spin-off of the famous street artists Banksy. The artist decided to draw attention to the "appalling" pothole-ridden streets after some of his cyclists friends were badly injured due to the potholes on the streets. “I wanted to attract attention to the pothole and make it memorable. Nothing seemed to do this better than a giant comedy phallus,” he said. “It’s also speedy, I don’t want to be in the road for a long time. It seems to have become my signature. I just want to make people smile and draw attention to the problem.” The artist uses non-permanent paint that washes out within a week or two. Despite the paint's short life span, the potholes have been getting fixed quicker than they were previously. So apparently a penis on the street elevates the urgency of road repair. "People will drive over the same pothole and forget about it,” the artist said. “Suddenly you draw something amusing around it, everyone sees it and it either gets reported or fixed." The local government is not amused. A council spokesman in Bury, a town in Greater Manchester, told the Evening News that the artist’s actions “are not only stupid but incredibly insulting to local residents. Has this person, for just one second, considered how families with young children must feel when they are confronted with these obscene symbols as they walk to school? Not only is this vandalism, but it’s also counter-productive,” the spokesman said. “Every penny that we have to spend cleaning off this graffiti is a penny less that we have to spend on actually repairing the potholes.” Regardless of whether the local government has to spend more to clean the graffiti, the artist is ultimately succeed in his goal. And from the looks of the repair jobs, the local government is spending no time or money trying to remove the graffiti. Rather, they are just covering the pothole with new asphalt.
Tips to Encourage Your Kids to Participate in Sports
Physical activity is an important part of any child’s health, learning, and well-being. As a parent, helping your child participate in sports should be a huge priority. While this is true, some kids don’t have a natural inclination to play. Even though this may be the case, here are steps parents can take to foster and encourage their children to participate in sports. Lead by Example Your child is a sponge. They absorb their understanding of life by watching what you, their parents (and other adults in their lives) do. This can often be a blessing and a curse. After all, you don’t want your child doing everything you do. For example, if your child sees you laying on the couch, doing nothing active all day, they aren’t going to see the value of exercising. It’s up to you to show the value of sports by participating in them, too. You can find several ways to show your love for sports. Most of these will benefit you and your child. You can go for a run after work, join the local gym, or join an after-work kickball team. You should also start investing in quality sports gear such as quality softball bats, kickballs, and more. Play Sports with Your Child Nothing is quite as “American” as tossing a baseball in the front yard with your child. While this may seem somewhat cliché, the benefits go beyond just spending time together. Your child’s association of sports and fun begins with you, their parents. As mentioned above, your child will generate their idea of normalcy by watching what you do. You can impart how important sports are by engaging in fun athletic activities with one another. Take time to teach your child to ride a bike, and then take this activity a step further by going on bike rides together. This can be simple, such as a ride down the street or riding down a trail on your mountain bike. You can purchase a basketball hoop and teach your child the basics of shooting and dribbling. If you want to go to the gym instead, take your child along and participate in different activities together. You should take time to introduce your children to the sports that you enjoy playing. However, as time passes, pay attention to your child and see if they are having fun with the activities you are participating in. It is completely possible that the sport you love to play won’t be interesting to them. While this is true, you should consider introducing them to as many different sports as you can to see if your child is inclined to this. Keep Things Fun No one wants to do something that feels like a chore. Kids are going to learn that sports are important by watching you (their parents) play. They are also going to learn that sports are fun by watching others enjoy playing them, too. If you take time to teach your child baseball, basketball, or another sport, make sure that you don’t put too much pressure on them. Instead, keep things light and maintain a sense of humor while you play. Your child isn’t going to want to learn how to shoot a basketball the right way if they don’t enjoy playing the game. Before anything else, be sure you and your child are having fun together. Enjoying Sports with Your Child As you can see, there are more than a few ways that you can begin enjoying sports with your child. Take some time to begin playing and see what your child enjoys. By doing this, you can see what they like and begin fostering that sport and playing with them. Remember, the more you play the sport with your child, the more interested in it they will be. Keep this in mind to ensure you and your child have a lifelong love of sports that will be good for their body and mind. 
Collection of Late Philanthropist Don Marron
The Wall Street Journal described three New York galleries as "longtime rivals" for selling the collection of late philanthropist Donald Marron. Pace, Gagosian, and Acquavella planned to privately sell over 300 works totaling US $450 million. Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, Ed Ruscha, etc. are among the artists included. How exactly the trio managed to pull it off, particularly with competition from Sotheby’s, Christie’s, and Phillips, may never be public knowledge. “The joy of private sales,” quipped Pace president Marc Glimcher. Many in the industry were surprised by this agreement. In recent news reports, three prominent auction houses were reported to have engaged in aggressive negotiations. The Wall Street Journal report noted that the houses guaranteed that at least $300 million would be paid for the paintings by Donald Marron's widow, Catie Marron. The auction house may be assertive because of its new owner, Patrick Dahi, and the need to make a big splash in its first year. Michael Plummer, the co-founder of Arvest Partners, saw potential in a Christie's partnership. According to a report that cites Pinault, "We know [Christie's owner François] and his family like taking risks on big deals." There are good reasons for the auction houses to be aggressive. According to Artnet Analytics, 35% fewer lots crossed the auction block in 2013 with an estimate above $10 million than in 2012. Additionally, many are concerned that Brexit, Coronavirus, and the upcoming US elections will continue to impact markets. The three New York galleries who won the rights to the collection are framing it as a critique of the auction model, which will make matters worse for auction houses. Glimcher said one of the main reasons the trio teamed up was to "make a point" about how galleries can compete with auction houses. Glimcher told the Wall Street Journal that the talk about numbers and bidding was uninspiring to [Catie Marron's widow]. “Private sales are private, and sometimes that’s an advantage.” A previous report from Artnet highlighted the conceivable procurement of Donald Marron's assortment by a significant sales management firm as motivation to anticipate a turnaround "from a genuinely fair 2019." Now, those expectations lie in the assortment of land big shots Harry and Linda Macklowe, whose separate from procedures prompted a court-requested offer of their assortment, worth an expected $700 million. Artnet anticipates that those pieces should go to sell as right on time as spring. In the interim, Pace, Gagosian, and Acquavella get ready for the offer of Don Marron's 300+ piece assortment. The threesome will have an occasion on April 24th, observing Marron's achievement. In spite of the fact that it is indistinct which compositions or drawings will feature the occasion. Furthermore, the exhibitions likewise are not precluding the chance of selling a few pieces before that date. They can't bear to sell the assortment gradually. Among a couple of subtleties, we think about the association is that Pace, Gagosian, and Acquavella consented to purchase any piece from Catie Marron that they can't sell. "It was a large chunk of change, so we need to convey—we can't send any works back to her," Bill Acquavella of Acquavella Galleries told the Wall Street Journal. Be that as it may, while it is a tumultuous time for the exhibitions, it is additionally a significant second to respect the memory of Don Marron. Marron established the Wall Street firm D.B. Marron and Co. in 1959. His initial gathering enthusiasm lay in Hudson River compositions. In any case, he developed to see the value in more present-day pieces as time passed by. He proceeded to assist PaineWebber for more than 20 years with their assortment as the organization's administrator. What's more, he filled in as the leader of the Museum of Modern Art, where he likewise gave pieces from his assortment. He passed on of a coronary failure last December, matured 85.

Botox And Fillers For Men. How Different Is It Than Women's Anti-Aging?
Botox and dermal fillers make no gender discrimination. It is enticing to both men and women. Men's cosmetics and beauty treatments are becoming increasingly popular. From procedures and treatment areas to locating the proper dermatologist, here's what men really ought to know about dermal fillers and neurotoxins. Injectable Techniques for Men Injectable therapies for men and women differ in a variety of ways. They are based on biological distinctions in the aging process, the composition of muscle fibers in the face, and bone structure. Then there's the matter of skin quality to consider. Because men's skin is thicker, a more robust product can frequently be utilized. The perception of attractiveness has an impact on injectable procedures as well. Our society's judgment of what qualities are feminine or masculine is taken into account while planning injectable treatments. Men, for example, should avoid using filler on the lateral of the cheekbone like women do since it provides a more feminine impression. An arched brow, as well as a very high cheekbone or a small chin, is a typically feminine look, yet generalizations are not always the rule. You generally wouldn't want to generate those conventionally feminine characteristics unless that's the patient's starting bone structure. Also, don't disregard society opinions of wrinkles and fine lines. In women, injectables are routinely used to smooth the skin, although wrinkles are less of a concern in men. The ultimate goal is to restore men's facial angularity and reduce the look of exhaustion or tension, rather than to reduce wrinkles. The sort of product used is also influenced by this distinction in purpose. Certain dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm, which can hold a lot of water, may not be appropriate for men, whereas Radiesse holds less water and produces better definition. The former is a HA filler, whereas the latter is calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHa). So, to achieve the best effects, it's all about quantity, quality, and the type of product you're using. The Benefits of Injectables for Men Fillers and neuromodulators are effective anti-aging treatments that can also be utilized to enhance and define one's appearance. Non-surgical injectables actually serve a vital purpose for guys who desire to rejuvenate their looks when you consider male anatomy. Men's hair is insufficient to conceal actual surgical scars. As a result, skillfully administered Botox and filler can be a strong tool for non-surgical rejuvenation. Neurotoxin Botox, Dysport, Jeuveau, and Xeomin are common neurotoxins used to soften the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes. Because men without lines can appear excessively feminine and unnatural, it is necessary to decrease rather than eradicate these wrinkles. One of the first signs of aging in men is between the brows, where they acquire vertical lines called glabellar or '11' lines. These lines are created by frowning and squinting, and males are more likely than women to acquire deep creases here since their skin is thicker and heavier. Botox can assist to relax the'muscles of disapproval,' also known as the corrugator muscles in medicine, and smooth this area, preventing deep wrinkles from forming and taking up residence. While certain lines may be thought to be 'handsome,' others may communicate unwanted emotion. Men with glabellar lines are advised that they appear angry or disapproving when they are not. Most men seek neuromodulators such as Botox to open their eyes and decrease wrinkles. However, prudence is required. As a result, they do not appear to have had any treatment. Dermal Fillers Men choose to treat the under eye hollow or tear trough with filler. As we age, we all lose volume here, but the thicker quality of men's skin and the bone structure of the face in this area make volume loss more evident. What was the final outcome? Under the brow, there are deep shadows. This provides the impression of dark circles and weariness. What is the answer? A modest amount of dermal filler in this area helps to reduce shadows and gives them a more relaxed appearance. Men also seek to increase the definition of their chin and jawline, soften their nasolabial creases, and address volume loss in the lower cheekbones. The idea is to appear masculine and rejuvenated rather than faultless. If You Are Not Yet Ready For Injectables For guys, lasers are routinely utilized as a "gateway" technique. The Brilliant + Clear The Complete treatment is suitable for men who want to improve the appearance of fine lines and discolouration without having to undergo prolonged downtime. For the best outcomes, three 30-minute sessions spread out over three months are required. Most patients are able to resume normal activities right away, making it an excellent choice for individuals who prefer to keep out of the spotlight and avoid downtime. It's a fantastic approach to organically rejuvenate the skin by employing two different types of energy to build more collagen and level out the skin tone. Men's Injectables Upkeep Male patients are no different, since routine maintenance is an unavoidable component of any injectable therapy. Neurotoxin dissolves in four months, whereas filler might endure from six months to two years. The area of the face injected, as well as the type of filler used, influence the exact longevity. Men are less likely than women to come in for regular maintenance visits, thus longevity, or the lack thereof, might be an issue for some. On average, most men will come in twice a year, which is generally more than enough. Furthermore, while men and women might expect comparable outcomes in terms of how long injectable neurotoxin and filler persist, the amount of product needed to accomplish results varies. Men require nearly double the amount of product that women do.
