14 entries - contest ended 2/15/2019

Nancy Pelosi received rock star treatment Saturday night from attendees at the annual Clive Davis pre-Grammy event after not saying a word during the Tuesday State of the Union, but with an arched eyebrow, a cocked head and extended hand clap dripping with shade, the Speaker of the House said more in her wordless response to Trump that ricocheted around the Internet this week than any public speech. Pelosi said on Wednesday that her now infamous gesture was actually not meant to be sarcastic.

Painted Red
12 entries - contest ended 2/9/2019

Although scarlet is the colour of sin in the Old Testament, the ancient world’s elite was thirsty for red, a symbol of wealth and status. They spent fantastic sums searching for ever more vibrant hues, until Hernán Cortés and the conquistadors discovered an intoxicatingly saturated pigment in the great markets of Tenochtitlan, modern-day Mexico City. Made from the crushed-up cochineal insect, the mysterious dye launched Spain toward its eventual role as an economic superpower and became one of the New World’s primary exports, as a red craze descended on Europe.  To learn more about this story Visit This Link
