Monday Mystery

Native Artists of North America
Newark Museum, Newark, NJ/USA
Opening: October 22, 2016

This fall, the Newark Museum will unveil its newly redesigned and reinterpreted Native American galleries. Featuring more than 100 rarely exhibited objects from throughout the United States and Canada, Native Artists of North America will showcase an exciting selection of works from the permanent collection, dating from the early 19th century to the present, including many objects never before exhibited.

This permanent installation celebrates the great diversity of styles, media and creativity of Native artists and places them in the broader context of American art. Among the works on view will be expertly woven Pomo baskets, exquisite hand-made items of dress from across the continent, and Southwestern pottery and textiles.  Other highlights will include works by the Haida master carver Charles Edenshaw and Pueblo painters Fred Kabotie, Tonita Peña and Awa Tsireh. Additional works by contemporary Native American artists will be installed in adjacent galleries, including recent acquisitions by Jeffrey Gibson and Preston Singletary.
Collaboratively curated by a team of Native American artists and scholars from around the country, Native Artists of North America brings together the expertise and talent of many leading specialists in the field of Native American art. By placing these reinterpreted collections in close proximity to Newark’s American galleries, the Newark Museum underscores the importance of Native American art as American Art, and celebrates the ingenuity and creativity of Native artists past and present.

The mystery are the words RARELY EXHIBITED  or never before- that concerns me. BOOM!


they are alive

Indeed, they are alive...  the stones were used to store energy from the dancing and ceremonies that happened within the Circle over a very long period of time. In that sense they are now still a direct and ongoing bridge between us today and the those ancestors who came before.

What would life be like without them?

Have you ever tried to learn more about some incredible thing, only to be frustrated by incomprehensible jargon?  Randall Munroe is here to help.  In Thing Explainer, he uses line drawings and only the thousand (or, rather, “ten hundred”) most common words to provide simple explanations for some of the most interesting stuff there is, including:

  • food-heating radio boxes (microwaves)
  • tall roads (bridges)
  • computer buildings (datacenters)
  • the shared space house (the International Space Station)
  • the other worlds around the sun (the solar system)
  • the big flat rocks we live on (tectonic plates)
  • the pieces everything is made of (the periodic table)
  • planes with turning wings (helicopters)
  • boxes that make clothes smell better (washers and dryers)
  • the bags of stuff inside you (cells)

How do these things work? Where do they come from? What would life be like without them? And what would happen if we opened them up, heated them up, cooled them down, pointed them in a different direction, or pressed this button? In Thing Explainer, Munroe gives us the answers to these questions and so many more. Funny, interesting, and always understandable, this book is for anyone—age 5 to 105—who has ever wondered how things work, and why.

Son of the Tree That Owns Itself (Image Credit: Bloodofox, Wikipedia)
Legend has it that the Tree That Owns Itself [wiki], a white oak in Athens, Georgia was given ownership of itself and the surrounding land by Dr. William Henry Jackson in 1820! The original tree had died long ago, but a new tree (Son of The Tree That Owns Itself) was planted at the same location from one of its acorns.

[My Virgo mascot is a famous white oak in Athens, Ga. It's called the Tree That Owns Itself. According to legend, it belongs to no person or institution, but only to itself. The earth in which it's planted and the land around it are also its sole possession.]

identity theft by wells fargo?

BOOM! Wells Fargo is going down... for this fraud
The latest on Wells Fargo --> Was Wells Fargo engaging in identity theft when its employees, under pressure from supervisors, opened accounts on behalf of customers who had not requested them? The office of California Attorney General Kamala Harris is looking to find out: The Los Angeles Times reports that the state is investigating whether the bank is guilty of criminal identity theft. James Rufus Koren writes: "Harris’ office demanded the bank turn over a trove of information, including the identities of California customers who had unauthorized accounts opened in their names, information about fees related to those accounts, the names of the Wells Fargo employees who opened the accounts, the names of those employees’ managers and emails or other communication related to those accounts. Her office is also requesting the same information about accounts opened by Wells Fargo workers in California for customers in other states."

oldest tree in the entire world?

List of Trees: HERE

oldest tree in the entire world?

However, Pando, a stand of 47,000 quaking aspen clones, is estimated to be between 80,000 and one million years old.[18][19][20]
The stress is on the difference between the singular "oldest tree" and the multiple "oldest trees", and between "oldest clone" and "oldest non-clone". The oldest known individual tree (that has not taken advantage of vegetative cloning) is a Great Basin bristlecone pine over 5,000 years old (germination in 3051 BC).[21] WIKI

A press release from Umeå University says that a Norway spruce clone named Old Tjikko, carbon dated as 9,550 years old, is the "oldest living tree".[17]
