Guess What Chris Christie Gave Up for Lent? (The New York Times)

3 hours ago

Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'” -Matthew 4:1-4 Fasting is a tenet in faith, specifically for Roman Catholics during this time of year called Lent. It’s a time for reflection and meditation during which church members give up something important like, say, food. Chris Christie was slowly moving along the campaign when he ended up at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) for a sit-down with radio host/firebrand Laura Ingraham. It was then that he put his alms before men (which is a no-no) and told everyone in attendance what essential pleasure he is courageously avoiding during Lent. SPOILER: it’s The New York Times.  The Times is not a card-carrying mem...

Paul Rand intersects with many areas of New York media, including communications, publishing, and advertising. He was the first graphic designer to use modern branding, with logos integrated across platforms, including products, showrooms and architecture,” said famed design and architecture curator Donald Albrecht. Albrecht spoke during a press preview and tour earlier this week for a new exhibit he curated titled Everything is Design: the Work of Paul Rand, on view now at MCNY/Museum of the City of New York. It’s MCNY’s first show devoted to a graphic designer, whose career spanned nearly 6 decades starting in the 1930s. 150 of Rand?s works are on display through July 19. Rand had a bold, though some may say risky, M.O. for pitching clients. “He only presented one idea to each client and said if you want other ideas, ask other designers,” according to Albrecht. “He was highly quotable, and had a wonderful sense of wit. He used humor in many of his visuals”, such as the El Product...

Pope Francis? Financial Angel Fails to Safeguard the Vatican?s Reputation

PHOTO: AFP The Vatican is a self-contained country in the middle of Rome. In fact, what the locals call Vatican Bank — officially titled the Institute for the Works of Religion — manages ?5.9bn ($7.3bn, £4.64bn) in assets. In short, the Holy See won’t be ordering takeout anytime soon. AP just released a report about the Vatican’s coffers stemming from Papal Emeritus Benedict’s regime in the gold (leaf) throne: Italian weekly L’Espresso reported in its Friday editions that Cardinal George Pell’s economy secretariat had run up a half-million euros (dollars) in expenses in the first six months of its existence. The total includes seemingly legitimate expenses, including computers and printers, but also a 2,508 euro bill from the famed Gamarelli clergy tailor. Pell spoke to the Catholic Herald about the Holy See’s seemingly extravagant finances last year, saying, “It is important to point out that the Vatican is not broke.” And then, he said this: “In fact, we have discovered that the s...
