The couple who dropped $120,000 on a banana duct-taped to the wall at a Miami art show are saying it's 'the unicorn of the art world'

  • The banana that sparked a deluge of think pieces and media hype at Art Basel Miami Beach last week shows no signs of slowing down.
  • And those who dropped around $120,000 on their purchase of an edition of Marizio Cattelan's "Comedian" — which is, as everyone now knows, a banana duct-taped to a wall — are now stepping forward to defend their purchases.
  • Billy and Beatrice Cox of Miami, Florida released a statement to Page Six on their acquisition, calling the work "the unicorn of the art world" and comparing it to Andy Warhol's iconic 1962 "Campbell's Soup Cans." The couple also shared their intention to loan and eventually donate the artwork to a museum.
  • Billy Cox is a member of the Bancroft family, which in 2007 reportedly sold its shares of Dow Jones & Company, publishers of the Wall Street Journal, to News Corp.

Why Car-Free Streets Will Soon Be the Norm

  • The goal was to create a modern city center that would thrive—and thrive it did—by closing space to vehicles and opening more room to people.
  • Fast-forward to now, where places like Amsterdam are seeking to ban all gas-powered cars from its downtown by 2030, and you can see the effect of longstanding policy choices on how we experience a city.
  • Advocates and city officials alike don’t see the plans for Market Street in isolation, but as the beginning of a broader movement to close more streets to traffic and open them to people.
  • While these two examples in New York and San Francisco are the most prominent street closures, they are by no means the only instances of city leaders taking back space from cars and giving it to people.

Fatally flawed 737 MAX had significantly higher crash risk, FAA concluded

  • Washington (CNN) - A Federal Aviation Administration analysis of the Boeing 737 MAX following the Lion Air crash last fall found the plane is significantly more likely to crash than other aircraft, according to a person familiar with the analysis document.
  • Despite the findings, the FAA did not ground the aircraft until after a second crash of the MAX months later.
  • The document, first reported by The Wall Street Journal, is expected to become public at a House Transportation Committee hearing on Wednesday morning, where the FAA Administrator and two whistleblowers are expected to testify.
  • One of the whistleblowers, Ed Pierson, is a former Boeing employee who worked on the 737 MAX program and raised concerns about internal pressure at Boeing, according to a person familiar with his testimony.
  • Pierson's decision to speak publicly after his concerns were raised by lawmakers at a hearing with Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg in October.

Apple CEO Tim Cook is striking back at critics who say innovation in the smartphone industry has peaked

  • Apple CEO Tim Cook doesn't think the smartphone industry is anywhere near reaching its peak.
  • His comments come as iPhone sales have declined in recent quarters and smartphone shipments across the industry have slowed over the past several quarters.
  • Global smartphone shipments grew by 0.8% year-over-year in the third quarter of 2019, according to the International Data Corporation, signalling the first sign of growth after seven quarters of declines.
  • Even before the company unveiled its iPhone 11 and 11 Pro in September, some Wall Street analysts had said this year's new Apple smartphones would likely offer incremental updates over 2018's iPhone XS and XS Max. But those analysts also think next year's iPhone, which is expected to support 5G connectivity and may feature a new design and 3-D cameras, could bring iPhone revenue back to growth.

Key paragraph in articles of impeachment against Trump regarding 2020 - Business Insider

  • The House introduced two articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump Tuesday focusing on abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
  • The Constitution extends the consequences of impeachment as far as unseating and indicting an official, but a vote to impeach does not prevent them from running for office in the future.
  • This paragraph is significant for two reasons, as pointed out by The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
  • The process of impeachment takes a simple majority in the House of Representatives.
  • The process then moves to the Senate, which holds a trial.
  • The Senate then votes whether to remove a president from office, which requires a two-thirds majority in the Senate.
  • Disqualification from running for office would then take a second vote in the Senate — one that only requires a majority to pass, according to The Journal.

Graffiti artist 'El Seed' finds a home in Dubai's new underground

  • The "City of Gold" is less well known as a destination for underground street culture.
  • But a French-Tunisian graffiti artist is doing his best to change that.
  • Since he first rose to prominence with a mural commemorating Tunisia's revolution in 2012, the artist has gone on to create spectacular public artworks everywhere from the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea to a Coptic Christian neighbourhood of Cairo.
  • The 38-year-old has traveled the world but his home is Dubai, where he works in a studio within the Alserkal Avenue complex, a trendy cultural district full of art galleries and social hangouts.
  • The artist is proud to be a part of the local community and maintains his connection to it through an open-door policy.
  • He is also dismissive of the idea that his adopted city is all style and no substance.
