In northern New York we generally have very cold winters, though thanks to climate change that is rapidly changing. none the less we still have to heat our homes on average 5 months a year, which isn’t good for the environment. Is there alternative heating methods that we could use? Apparently there are new heating methods in Europe.

James Rosenquist’s “F-111” is so familiar by now that memory has begun to smooth its shark-tooth edges and recall the Cold War period it exemplifies.
What’s jarring about its current installation at New York’s Museum of Modern Art is that, until now, museums may never have done justice to the piece. That’s reason enough to visit the fourth floor, where until July 30 the 86-foot-long behemoth can be seen as Mr. Rosenquist introduced the painting in 1965 at the Castelli Gallery in New York: a four-sided, wraparound mural for a space (23 feet by 22 feet) little bigger than a squash court.
Pop artist and sculptor Gerald Laing dies aged 75… He spent much of the 1960s working in pop art in New York and was a close friend of artists Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.
Laing’s most famous works included images of actresses Brigitte Bardot and Anna Karina.
In October this year, he showcased a series of paintings and drawings of Amy Winehouse in London.
On Friday, Nov. 18th, London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall presented modernist jazz veteran, drummer Roy Haynes, whose A-List credits begin with Lester Young and Charlie Parker in late 1940s New York. Haynes’ drumming was supported by Peter King’s hard edged and flowing saxophone.
Haynes, born in 1925, calls his sax-fronted quartet The Fountain of Youth Band and, judging by his introductory frolics, in the video taken by an audience member below, he had just drunk copious draughts.
Haynes is among the most recorded drummers in jazz, and in a career lasting more than 60 years. And he is still going strong.
THERE are many paths into New York’s little known netherworld. One of them is a metal door sandwiched between a grimy Midtown apartment building and a nondescript bodega.Thousands of people walk by every day, never even noticing it. While millions of straphangers walk up and down the city’s clearly marked subway entrances, only a handful know of the dangerous, harsh - yet surprisingly peaceful - world that lies on the other side of this particular door.Call it a tale of two cities - and both are constantly changing
