In a landmark victory for the United States, authorities can now seize the $300 million megayacht Amadea from Russian oligarch Suleiman Kerimov. Built for entertaining guests, the vessel has ceilings painted with Michelangelo clouds and has a cinema hall with a popcorn machine.

There was a time when superyachts were recognized by their wealthy billionaire owners. Ever since the invasion of Ukraine by Russia, it is now the other way round. Billionaires are now recollected by the luxury vessels they own or owned (before seizure). The soon-to-be-mothballed $610 million Solaris brings to mind the name of sanctioned Roman Abramovich. The Dilbar luxury yacht instantly presents itself as the darling of Russian Billionaire and Oligarch Alisher Usmanov. While there was speculation about the ownership of the lavish $325 million mega yacht Amadea, the air was cleared with a Fiji court ruling in favor of the United States, which stated sanctioned tycoon Suleiman Kerimov owns Amadea. Earlier, lawyers of the sanctioned oligarch asserted that U.S. or Fiji authorities could not capture the vessel as it belongs to a different billionaire.

Review - TMNT: The Last Ronin #5 concludes Michelangelo's story brilliantly

It was the biggest question of 2020 for the TMNT fanbase. Now, three issues and nearly two years after the release of the first chapter, readers have not just the answer to the Last Ronin's identity, but how his brothers and father died, how Shredder's grandson took control of New York, and who else is still around to oppose the villain. Now, the stage is set for one last confrontation between good and evil, between Clan Hamato and Clan Oroku. In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin #5, TMNT fans will, at last, have their last questions about the mystery turtle answered.

Michelangelo paints wrong ceiling, Scott poops in Walmart bag

How do the humanities help us all cultivate hope and community in times of crisis?

Indiana Humanities is a statewide nonprofit that infuses the humanities into our daily lives. Indiana Humanities ran an abridged version – as you read through this original version, see if you can guess what was not included. Ha.

Michelangelo Drawing Expected to Sell for $39 Million at Auction

A newly discovered drawing by Michelangelo may fetch almost $40 million dollars at auction. The drawing is thought to date back to the end of the 15th century. It was last sold to a private collector in 1907. Then, it was believed to be “from the school of Michelangelo.” That is to say, not an actual work by the artist. In 2019 an art specialist discovered this drawing wasn’t a copy of Michelangelo’s style. It was a Michelangelo original!
