NBA: Jeanie Buss thwarts family coup, maintains control of Lakers

Mon, 03/27/2017 - 21:35

Jeanie Buss will remain the controlling owner of the NBA's Los Angeles Lakers under an agreement reached with her brothers, her lawyer confirmed on Monday. Attorney Adam Streisand also said that Jeanie Buss has removed one of her siblings, Jim Buss, as a trustee and replaced him with her younger sister, Janie Buss. The agreement ends a dispute that surfaced in court this month after Buss brothers Jim and Johnny proposed a board of directors that didn't include Jeanie Buss -- which would have meant she couldn't continue as controlling owner of the team.

Chinese artist Ai Weiwei to build fences in New York

Mon, 03/27/2017 - 19:17

The Chinese activist artist Ai Weiwei will build dozens of fences in New York for an exhibition opening in October that focuses on walls that divide people and mark borders. A champion of refugees and migrants, Ai is calling his new large-scale conceptual installation "Good Fences Make Good Neighbors." He took the title from the final line in "Mending Wall," a poem by the 20th-century US poet Robert Frost that reflects on a wall between neighbors. The artist says he is dismayed by President Donald Trump's policies, including his promise to build a wall along the US southern border with Mexico to keep out undocumented immigrants, along with his attempt to bar entry to the United States by some Muslim-majority citizens.
