Die Brücke in mostra a Genova

Originally posted on Artrotter's Blog:

Genova e il suo imponente Palazzo Ducale ospitano fino al 12 luglio una interessante mostra “Da Kirchner a Nolde. Espressionismo Tedesco” sugli artisti del “Die Brücke”(Il Ponte) movimento artistico tedesco nato agli inizi del Novecento(1905) e attivo fino quasi alla Grande Guerra.

Il nome stesso del gruppo ne sintetizza il significato: un ponte fra l’arte passata, classicheggiante, e il futuro rappresentato non da uno stile particolare ma dall’idea di rappresentare l’essenziale, l’idea che per ogni artista stava alla base dell’atto creativo.

I loro fondatori, studenti di architettura presto passati, da autodidatti , alla pittura e al disegno, si proponevano di sovvertire le regole della pittura accademica per dare spazio a una nuova visone che esprimesse al meglio le emozioni: dalla critica sociale, all’angoscia, al disagio.

Fonti di ispirazione formale e coloristica l’arte di Van Gogh e Gauguin, di Rousseau,Matisse e Munch ma anche l’arte primitiva.

Nasceva così, da questo gruppo, l’”espressionismo”…

Saying Yes To Roller Skating

Originally posted on Corky Bloom Studio:

Sometimes you need to do things that are not in your comfort zone. I like to pride myself that I will try new things. Yet, the older that I get, my comfort zone is beginning to shrink. I believe that my time is precious  and the possibility of getting hurt has made me think twice about trying new things. Once in awhile, there is something that seems to creep in through my comfort zone and gets me to do something that I never thought I would do. That thing for me was roller skating.

To me roller skating has been irrelevant for years. Going down to your local roller rink to jam out to music seem so 70’s. Sure inline skating is still popular, but this guy wants nothing to do with it. When a couple of people took me to the roller rink on the weekend, it totally caught…

Breast cancer overdiagnosis costs $4 billion a year to the U.S.

Originally posted on DES Daughter Network:

The costs from false diagnoses of breast cancer are “much higher” than previously documented, according to a new study published online on April 7, 2015.

Betty-Ford-Breast-Care About $4 billion is spent ever year in the United States because of false-positive mammography results and breast cancer overdiagnosis, according to a new study. Betty Ford Breast Care image via Spectrum Health.

2015 Study Abstract

Populationwide mammography screening has been associated with a substantial rise in false-positive mammography findings and breast cancer overdiagnosis. However, there is a lack of current data on the associated costs in the United States. We present costs due to false-positive mammograms and breast cancer overdiagnoses among women ages 40–59, based on expenditure data from a major US health care insurance plan for 702,154 women in the years 2011–13. The average expenditures for each false-positive mammogram, invasive breast cancer, and ductal carcinoma in situ in the twelve months following…

United Airlines Broke My Guitar and Delta Now Offers Pet Tracking with Wireless GPS

Delta Now Offering Pet Tracking with Wireless GPS

Source: thepointsguy.com

Delta has got it right in this case, pun intended.  Not only will they let you track your luggage and pay you a penalty of 2,500 Sky Miles if your luggage doesn’t turn up within 20 minutes, but they will also track your pet for you with GPS.

This is a great response to a PR debacle when people flew to New York for the prestigious Westminster Dog Show, but their pets ended up in Seattle and other places, not New York. Unlike United, they have taken a really bad situation, learned from it, committed to a better result and now provide a service which people will trust.

As to United, not only do they have a reputation for damaging guitars, they don’t appear to have learned from it. I stopped flying with them after a trip to Orlando, where…
