Fischer is surely not the person we need as her number two. His resume suggests that in his bones he is an austerian. Although he cut rates sharply during the crisis as head of the Israeli central bank, this is not proof he can manage an economy that is struggling to recover.

For the past 35 years or so, I have been part of a wolf pack. Don't panic, it's just what I call my collection of close women friends.
I know sounding critical of this gathering or opportunity to enjoy temperatures in the 80's is easy pickings but let's call it out. This thing is a business boom for galleries, hotels, and other services in Miami; so keep the art rolling.
If any handshake critics had bothered to actually listen to President Obama's speech, they would have heard why the handshake was not only appropriate but it was something that Mandela himself would smile upon.

An international team of heavy hitting women in street art are the centerpiece of the Wynwood District this weekend as Jeffrey Deitch returns to Miami to co-curate Women on the Walls. Reprising a more central role for Wynwood Walls that he played when Tony Goldman first established this outdoor mural...

What's got me so despondent (and dramatic)? A couple of recent blog posts that appeared on HuffPost Gay Voices, lamenting, worrying about or lashing out at queers (like me) who don't want to live a heteronormative life.
More and more, parents whose kids don't fit the cookie cutter mold of their neighborhood school are increasingly interested in the option of high-quality education online -- even if it means missing teacher-led instruction.
"Repetition is the mother of learning," an old professor of Military Preparation in my high school used to say. He wasn't, however, referring to the repetition of a phrase in order to learn it, or of a particular mathematical operation to memorize it. In fact, he was referring to punishment.

Each and every one of these women is included because she is noteworthy -- a cutting-edge artist or writer, a revolutionary who is upending her community's and the world's limited notions of what a Muslim woman is capable of doing, a pioneer fighting for women's and girls' rights.
These days, flying is almost irredeemably difficult. From baggage fees to security lines, even the most zen flyer can experience Travel Stress at Airports (TSA). Luckily, there is a prescription.
Even Tony Danza is smart enough to know the pitfalls and perils of bosses and employees keeping the 'one-on-ones' going after the severance.
Building on sand is a wobbly affair, but the foundations of Design Miami/ - now in its ninth year - are as solid as ever. For five days some of the world's biggest designers, curators and collectors will pass by the fair's sandy pavilion entrance, designed by the New York outfit Formlessfinder, and congregate under one roof. According to the fair's redoubtable director Marianne Goebl, this year audiences can expect a wide spectrum of work, ranging from large-scale to small, with a focus on works that represent the intersection of digital and analog. Typically the festival showcases emerging talent and this year the spotlight is on contemporary American upcoming stars such as David Wiseman and the Haas Brothers - both represented by R 20TH Century - and Jonathan Muecke at Volume Gallery. Goebl's must-sees include jewelery as "wearable sculpture", and Jean Prouvé's 1944 pre-fabricated house shown for the first time by Galerie Patrick Seguin. Also not to be missed is Simon Heijdens' mesmerizing collaboration with Perrier-Jouët. Text by Leila De Vito for Crane.tv For more cultural news follow Crane.tv on Twitter or find us on Facebook or
Each year we face Art Basel with the same combination of thrill and dread -- excited for the glamour, horrified of the 18-hour days and the inconveniences they bring ( like fatigue, humidity-stricken hair and super-bunions). We always start the week...
By continuing to not critically analyze the failure of our national drug policy and how it impacts the mentally ill and our homeless population, we invite other incidents such as this -- this is simply a more extreme example of what happens on the streets every day.
I imagine that many viewers, like me, watching that incoherent sequence, are asking themselves, "What? What's happening in the Ukraine?" But the official press can't answer us, because they can't even fulfill their role of telling us what's happening in Cuba.
Miami should be proud, follow the lead of the museum's intrepid board of directors, and support this foundational civic endeavor. Equally importantly, the rest of the country should take notice and explore this new orbit of cultural influence, soon and often.
Sometimes I think the Miami Art Week shows are more about the people than the art; you meet so many people. But, then again, it's the art that has drawn everyone together.
