Totally inspirational; I had never heard of her before, but it shows what you can achieve by having skills, will power and a little help – In this case a supportive father that did not accept his child being treated as a commodity and a clear thinking aunt.

Big payouts for booted CEOs – Post Leadership – The Washington Post.
And of course they show the one woman that got it. Never mind that the large (95%) majority of the CEOs that got these pay outs are male.
Don’t get me wrong; I loath seeing this type of pay out. Large bonus pay outs for under performace that costs genuinely hard working people their job but it does say something about the slant they are taking toward it.

Metropolitan Museums timeline Heilbrunn Timeline of art history
If you want to soak up more knowledge of the arthistory over several regions and times. If you want to be totally sucked into one website, this is a very good starter. Time will fly and you will have felt as if you have been through a selective art history course. I love this place.
