Best All Around: I love Allen Brothers , the venerable Chicago butcher shop - since 1893 and the city’s stockyards days - that supplies many top steakhouses across the nation and has been doing mail order meat for a long time.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Three topless women overlap, baring their ample breasts, pink washes over the breasts of the woman on the left, her nipples outlined in red. Pops of green, blue, and pink panties guide our gaze, red paint erupting from the lower left and less so from the lower right, contrasting with the shadowy light background that frames their faces. Their hands and fingernails exaggerated, their faces avoiding direct eye contact with the viewer. Oil paint and oil stick on linen enhance the sensuality and intimacy, encouraging us to wonder what the women are thinking or feeling. We’re drawn into their dialogue, yet they hold the secrets. The large-scale The Three Graces , a new painting by Cristina BanBan, passionately weds European figuration with gestural brushstrokes, varying in texture to create depth. Energy surges from the figures and the composition, exuding feminine might. Her monumental work invigorates the viewer who walks … [Read more...] about Visceral Gaze At Frieze New York: Woman Artists Command Our Attention
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin With Ukrainian forces now on the Russian border, a momentous question has arisen. Will Ukrainian troops now invade Russia? Ukrainian boots on Russian ground might divert forces from the main Russian offensive to the south, embarrass the Russian government. and boost Ukrainian morale. It would also be sweet revenge in a conflict that has almost totally been waged on Ukrainian territory. However, advancing into Russia would more likely be an enormous blunder. It would dissipate Ukrainian military power, possibly provoke Moscow into using chemical or nuclear weapons, and support Russia’s claim that invading Ukraine was a “defensive” war. Perhaps most important, it would risk depriving Ukraine of support from Western nations reluctant to risk escalating the conflict into World War III. So far, there are no public indications that Ukraine is contemplating sending ground troops into Russia. Nonetheless, in a war where … [Read more...] about Will Ukraine’s Army Invade Russia?
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin The American worker is getting lazier. Or at least, that’s what a quick look at recent productivity numbers might make you think. Q1 productivity dropped for American workers while wages actually increased – workers are getting paid more to get less done. Is it laziness though? As tempting as the assertion might be, there’s a lot more to explain recent decreases in productivity. Yes, there’s an incredibly tight labor environment. With unemployment near all time lows and multiple job openings for every person looking for work it definitely seems like workers have all the leverage. They can take it easy on the job and know they won’t get fired, and even if they do, who cares? There’s a position open for them across the street. This comfort factor is definitely part of the productivity narrative, but it’s not the only driver. There’s more to the story if we really want to understand the productivity and wage situation in … [Read more...] about Do Less & Earn More: Declining American Productivity
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin When a part of the world is as dominated by mountains as Trentino in Italy’s glorious north undeniably is, it can be easy to forget there are four seasons in every year. Standing in late winter atop the tangle of ski runs that drape themselves conveniently across the precipitous slopes above the town of Madonna di Campiglio , casting an appreciative eye over a far-reaching blanket of crisp white snow ever so slightly yellowed by the drifting sands of the Sahara Desert blown in from afar on invisible winds, and shadowed by the towering peaks of the Dolomite mountains behind me and Alps in front, it’s hard to conceive how this would all look outside of winter’s icy grip. As my mind wanders and contemplates the awesomeness of the environment, my local mountain guide, Marco Maganzini, snaps me out of my reverie with another story of year-round derring do that unwittingly answers my question. The truth is, this place is a … [Read more...] about Your Essential Guide To Trentino: Italy’s Year-Round Natural Playground
