British painter Lucian Freud dies aged 88

Filed under: Uncategorized — y42TWx @ 3:45 am

Saturday, July 23, 2011

Lucian Freud, the painter and grandson of the founder of psychoanalysis Sigmund Freud, died Wednesday at his London home following a short illness. He was 88 years old.

Freud, the elder brother of the late comedic writer and broadcaster Clement Freud, was born in Berlin in 1922 and moved with his family to Britain in 1933 to escape the Nazis. He became a British citizen in 1939. He studied at the Central School of Art, then at the East Anglian School of Painting and Drawing with Cedric Morris. He also attended Goldsmiths, University of London. After finishing art school, he spent some time in the merchant navy. In 1944, he started exhibiting with a solo showcase at the Alex Reid & Lefevre Gallery.

I paint people not because of what they are like, not exactly in spite of what they are like, but how they happen to be.

In the 1950s, his style changed to exclusively paint portraits and nudes. The process of painting for models was intense: one nude painting took 16 months to complete and Freud demanded her turn up almost every day to pose. His work was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1989, and he was a member of the Order of Merit. Most controversially, he painted a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II which was described by The Sun newspaper as a “travesty”, and prompted Robin Simon, the editor of the British Art Journal to say that “It makes her look like one of the royal corgis who has suffered a stroke”. He also famously painted the glamour model Kate Moss nude, and was once named one of Britain’s best dressed men in the magazine GQ.

His work has sold for large amounts: Benefits Supervisor Sleeping, sold in 2008 at Christie’s in New York for $33.6 million dollars. In addition, he has had solo shows at some of the most prominent art galleries and museums in the world including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Nicholas Serota, the director of the Tate in London, said of Freud: “The vitality of his nudes, the intensity of the still life paintings and the presence of his portraits of family and friends guarantee Lucian Freud a unique place in the pantheon of late twentieth century art. His early paintings redefined British art and his later works stand comparison with the great figurative painters of any period.”

Freud has at least thirteen children from a series of marriages and affairs: after an affair wth the Bloomsbury Group member Lorna Garman, Freud married her niece Kitty in 1948 and had two children (Annie and Annabel) before ending the marriage four years later. He had an affair with Lady Caroline Blackwood which turned into a marriage in 1953, although that was dissolved in 1957. He also had two children with Bernadine Coverly (Bella Freud, the fashion designer, and the writer Esther Freud), five children with Suzy Boyt, and four children with Katherine Margaret McAdam (Paul Freud, an artist, Lucy Freud, David Freud and Jane McAdam Freud, also an artist).

Understanding A Bad Credit Home Equity Loan

Filed under: Real Estate — y42TWx @ 2:48 am

Submitted by: Kerry Ng

If a person has bad credit, trying to get a loan for new car, pay off medical debts or even trying to consolidate all your credit cards can be if very difficult process. However, for homeowners who are also facing these challenges with bad credit, there may be hope. If you have built up some equity as a homeowner, a bad credit home equity loan made just be the ticket that you’re looking for.

Most people with bad credit are very reluctant to apply for a loan. Perhaps they may feel some shame about exposing their past credit history. However, the beauty of a bad credit home equity loan is that you are only borrowing against the equity that you have built the up in your home. As long as you avoid using credit cards or other lines of credit, once you have borrowed against your home, and have paid off that loan, you can actually repair your credit history in very short order.

So What is Home Equity?

Before you decide to run out and apply for a loan, let’s start off by explaining what home equity is and what it is not. In its simplest explanation, home equity is the amount that your home praises for on the current real estate market, minus the current balance of your mortgage. For example, let’s say your home is currently appraised at $200,000 and you have a remaining balance of $50,000 owing on your mortgage; then the amount of equity that you have is $150,000. This means that you can borrow up to $150,000 on a bad credit home equity loan.

Notice that we say it’s “up to” $150,000. Just because you have $150,000 in equity, doesn’t mean that you will get the full $150,000 loan. The banks will look into other factors as well. Such as your actual credit history, your current income as well as your spouse’s income too, your length of employment, etc.

An experienced loans officer will take into account all these factors before making a decision on how much to loan you. Just be sure to bring plenty of information as well as proof of all real income on hand when you apply for a bad credit home equity loan. The more information you can provide, the better the odds of you getting a loan.

If you require a bad credit home equity loan to pay off some over due bills or credit cards, you may want to make certain that you have built up enough equity in your home to be able to cover the amount that you will need to borrow. There are two ways to build equity in your home. One way is to pay off your mortgage faster. The other way is to wait for your home to appreciate in value. Over a period of time, chances are pretty good that your home will rise in value. Of course, if you can do both (double upon your mortgage payments AND wait till your home appreciates in value), then that will really help you in getting that loan.

Armstrong announces retirement from professional cycling

Filed under: Uncategorized — y42TWx @ 2:51 am

Monday, April 18, 2005

At a press conference Monday, Lance Armstrong announced his intention to retire from professional cycling after going for his 7th Tour de France title in July 2005.

“Ultimately, athletes have to retire,” said the 33 year-old American. “The body doesn’t just keep going and going.”

Speculation on the retirement of the six-time Tour de France winner had been growing in recent months. The Texan had hinted at wanting to spend more time with his children and his cancer charity, the Lance Armstrong Foundation. There was talk he may marry his well-known girlfriend, rock-star singer Sheryl Crow.

Armstrong battled with testicular cancer in 1996 before coming back to win the 1999 edition of the legendary French race. He went on to win the next five Tours de France and is now widely regarded as one of the greatest riders in the history of the sport.

Asked about his chances for Tour success, he expressed hope tempered with praise for his opponents. “Can I win this year? I’m not sure, but I’ll try… This will be a different year for the Tour with Jan Ullrich looking better and a host of young riders coming up,” he said.

Should Armstrong follow through with his plans, he will begin his final race in the United States tomorrow at the first stage of the Tour de Georgia. He has successfully used the springtime race in the past as a tune-up to the Tour de France in the summer. The contract with his new team sponsor, the Discovery Channel, obligates him to compete in one more Tour de France.

Town House Floor Plan | Row Houses For Urban Dwellers

Filed under: Financial Services — y42TWx @ 1:35 am

By Rebecca Welch

There are many advantages to town house floor plans, particularly for renters and urban dwellers. Years ago, this type of floor plan was known as a “row house.” Townhouses are generally multi-story units that are attached to units on either side give you neighbors living closely together similar to apartment style housing. Once found in abundance in large cities, townhouses can be found all over the country.

Town house floor plans offer more advantages than apartments in several ways. Because they are multiple units arranged in a row, townhouses generally have a single entry per unit and therefore allow for more privacy than living in an apratment building. They also tend to have more square footage of living space per unit than apartments although townhouses are smaller than duplexes. Town house floor plan designs are also more varied than apartments.

Most townhouses are arranged in typical fashion with living spaces on the bottom floor and sleeping spaces on the top floor. The number of bedrooms can vary from one to three and the number of bathrooms generally varies from one to two and a half bathrooms per unit.

While the number of bedrooms and bathrooms can vary, almost all townhouse floor plans have garages,patios and at least one walk-in closet. Kitchen can be traditional, galley style, or in the case of a very large floor plan, an island kitchen. It is also possible to have a fireplace with openings toward both the living room and kitchen giving it an old world feel.

Although townhouses are also known as “row houses”, some current configurations include one unit per side and others have two side-by-side units facing front and two more units on the back side. Whatever your choice, town house floor plans offer a wide variety of options for singles, couples and small families.

Wikinews interviews Darcy Richardson, Democratic Party presidential challenger to Barack Obama

Filed under: Uncategorized — y42TWx @ 1:35 am

Friday, November 25, 2011

U.S. Democratic Party presidential candidate Darcy Richardson of Florida took some time to answer a few questions from Wikinews reporter William S. Saturn.

Richardson, 55, is a political activist that helped form the New Democrats in 1989 and founded the progressive Battleground Blog earlier this year. He is also a political historian, and has authored six books covering third parties and presidential elections, including A Nation Divided: The 1968 Presidential Campaign (2002). His current work, The Spirit of ’76: Eugene McCarthy’s Struggle for Open Politics, chronicles the late Democratic Senator Eugene McCarthy’s 1976 presidential campaign for which he volunteered. Richardson admires McCarthy, and served as manager for his 1988 presidential run. Recently, Richardson advised Brian Moore’s Socialist Party USA presidential campaign in 2008.

In addition, Richardson himself has sought political office, albeit unsuccessfully. In 1980, he ran for Pennsylvania Auditor General, and in 1988, vied for one of Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate seats as a member of the Consumer Party. Last year, he ran for Lieutenant Governor of Florida as the running mate of gubernatorial candidate Farid Khavari.

Richardson has criticized President Barack Obama’s policies for being too similar to those of former President George W. Bush. He hoped to convince several prominent progressives to challenge Obama in the Democratic primaries, but none were available to do so. Last month, Richardson decided to begin a campaign himself and announced through his Battleground Blog that he would challenge Obama in the Democratic Party primaries as a progressive candidate. So far, he has qualified for the New Hampshire primary in January and the Missouri primary in February. In an interview with the Independent Political Report, Richardson proclaimed his campaign slogan as “no fourth term for George W. Bush.”
