A banana, duct-taped to a wall went on a sale at Art Basel Miami Beach this week — priced at $120,000. And, according to art market website Artnet, two of the three editions have already sold, with the last now going for $150,000. The work, by Maurizio Cattelan, was presented Wednesday by Perrotin, a contemporary art gallery founded in Paris that has had a long association with the Italian artist. It is Cattelan’s first contribution to an art fair in 15 years, according to the gallery.

CBS Sports reported on Nov. 10 that Jeff Bezos is interested in buying an NFL team, and that he’s spent “considerable time” with NFL owners such as Daniel Snyder of the Washington Redskins. And The Washington Post, which is owned by Bezos, reported on Thursday that the billionaire has privately expressed an interest in buying the Seattle Seahawks.

But if Bezos truly is interested in becoming an owner, his world-leading estimated net worth of $109.5 billion is enough to buy every single team in the NFL — and then some.

The total value of each of the 32 NFL franchises, based on Forbes’ latest ranking of every team’s estimated values, is nearly $91.4 billion.

Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison is America’s first lady of literature. Her books encompass black American history but live and breathe in the present, rich in vivid characters, haunted by ghosts. Born poor in Ohio in 1931, she passed yesterday at the age of 88 from pneumonia. She tells Alan Yentob how her father hated whites so much he wouldn’t let them in the house. Her masterpiece, Beloved, shows the horrors of slavery perhaps better than any other artwork. She talks as she writes – with warmth and wit.

RIP Toni Morrison (1933-2019)

Sixteen-year-old Kyle Giersdorf — screen name “Bugha” — took home $3 million Sunday after winning the inaugural Fortnite World Cup in New York, the largest-ever prize for a singe player in a videogame tournament.

The Pennsylvania teen crushed his competition at a sold-out Arthur Ashe Stadium — home of next month’s U.S. Open tennis tournament — to capture the solo division with 59 points, 26 more than his runner-up. About $30 million in prize money was up for grabs at this weekend’s tournament.

Giersdorf’s mother, Darcy Giersdorf, told ESPN that he typically plays “Fortnite” eight to 10 hours a day. “This is life-changing for him,” she told ESPN. “He’s been playing videogames since he was 3, so this is his passion. He told us he could do this, he put his mind to it and he did it.”

“Fortnite” is the most financially successful free videogame of all time, earning $2.4 billion in revenue in 2018, according to Nielsen’s SuperData Research. 

The US makes up less than 5% of the world’s population but has 31% of the world’s mass shooters.

Though mass shootings comprise a small amount of the country’s overall gun violence, they have become a target for politicians and interest groups who seek to prevent the multiple deaths of people often targeted at random.

Most recently gunmen targeted the Garlic Food Festival in Northern California on Sunday evening July 28 2019, killing 4 people including a 6 year old kid. Mass shootings originated over 20 years ago on April 20, 1999 in Columbine Colorado when a couple of Caucasian kids murdered innocent students at their High School. Since 1999 America roughly sees one mass shooting per day. In Las Vegas in October 2017, a wealthy caucasian gunman killed 58 people and wounded hundreds more. In June 2016, a gunman in Orlando, Florida, killed 49 people and wounded dozens more at a nightclub. There is only one way to stop people from being shot and murdered with GUNS. See below.
