Two-time Oscar-winning actress Hilary Swank may be a veteran at her chosen craft, but she admits she's still a newbie art collector. Swank attended a kick-off party Tuesday night for Art Basel Miami Beach, the prestigious extension of the annual contemporary art fair in Basel, Switzerland. The actress said she loves collecting everything from photographs to sculptures and doesn't gravitate to a particular medium or period, but instead chooses the pieces that speak to her."I think that art either makes you learn something new about yourself or makes you relate to something in yourself or is simply entertaining and that's the beauty of it," said Swank, who wore a short black, lace dress.
Puerto López (Ecuador) (AFP) - The sight of thousands of whales surfacing, jumping and playing off the coast of South America as they migrate toward their breeding grounds is one of nature's most majestic displays. But global warming is killing off their food and changing their age-old migratory routes. To the tourists watching a humpback whale frolic with her newborn calf in the tropical waters off Ecuador's coast near Puerto Lopez, the sight of enormous fins surfacing, tails flipping and blowholes spouting is breathtaking.
Los Angeles (AFP) - The Philadelphia 76ers' historic and agonizing losing streak finally ended as Kobe Bryant suffered more defeat with the Los Angeles Lakers in his first road match since announcing his plans to retire. One more defeat for the Sixers on Tuesday -- 0-18 heading into the game -- would have given them sole possession of the record for the worst start to a season in NBA history. They had already set a record for the longest losing streak in the history of the NBA, with 28 defeats stretching over last season and the current campaign. But a 23-point haul from forward Robert Covington laid the foundation for a deserved 103-91 Sixers victory as Bryant and the Lakers tumbled to 2-15, the worst record in the Western Conference. Jerami Grant and Nerlens Noel added 14 points apiece while rookie Jahlil Okafor was one of three Philadelphia players to finish with 12 points. "I'm pleased for the city," Sixers coach Brett Brown said.
Aung San Suu Kyi met Myanmar's outgoing president on Wednesday to discuss the transfer of power following her party's landslide election win. The Southeast Asian nation started moving from a half-century of dictatorship toward democracy in 2011, when military rulers inexplicably agreed to hand over power to a nominally civilian government headed by President Thein Sein, a general turned reformist.
