Hillary Clinton Showed Up at an Art Exhibit of Her E-mails and Read Them at a Replica of the Resolute Desk
A lot can be said about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton—and many people do—but it cannot be said she has no sense of humor. Anyone who enjoyed one of her speaking engagements or talk show appearances could see that humor on display.
And the former Democratic Senator for New York is even willing to joke about getting almost 3 million more votes than the other guy but not becoming President. One main issue during the 2016 election was emails sent and received by then Secretary of State Clinton on a private email server.
Italian Parade's Float Featured a Gigantic Likeness of Donald Trump Wielding a Twitter Sword and a Massive Claw
A parade in Italy featured a towering likeness of President Donald Trump in the armor of God Emperor from the Warhammer 40k video game, complete with a Twitter sword and a claw.
The float was created by Fabrizio Galli for the Viareggio Carnevale, a Tuscan parade famous for its elaborate floats skewering famous people from politicians to celebrities.
Much of the world’s great art is hidden away in private collections and museum archives, but every now and then, something is brought out into the light that commands new attention. A charcoal drawing that was previously attributed to the studio of Leonardo da Vinci has been brought out of an archive where it has been stashed for the past 150 years. Experts now believe it is a draft version of the Mona Lisa.
The drawing features a nude woman in the familiar seated pose with her arms crossed. She has similar features as well as the enigmatic expression we associate with the famous painting.
The Earth has more than 1,500 potentially active volcanoes, quietly simmering under the surface or even along the ocean floor. Some, such as Hawaii’s Kilauea, are in a continual state of low-level eruption. Others, like Oregon’s Mount St. Helen’s, have erupted more destructively in the past century. It’s the supervolcanoes, however, that cause scientists the most concern. Supervolcanoes are large volcanoes with the potential to cause catastrophic damage on a continental, even global, scale if they erupt. In Italy, the Campi Flegrei supervolcano may be getting ready to show us exactly what that looks like.
