Russian Art Is Hot Stuff

Art sales aren't usually raucous affairs. But last week's Russian-art auction at Sotheby's in London was an exception. In a heated battle for one painting, a private Russian buyer playfully threatened to strike his contender before winning with a $2.5 million bid—more than double its estimated value. Moments earlier, a huge turquoise pet parrot broke free from its owner's bejeweled shoulder, flying madly around the room. "It wouldn't be a Russian show without something like that happening,"...

Ready for Some Football

When it comes to preseason predictions, pro football is impossibly oblique. Sure, I\'ll go on the record and take my best shot at column\'s end for the pleasure of your ultimate ridicule. But these picks are, well, strictly for sport. The magic of the NFL is its ultimate unpredictability. Tonight\'s opener—the champion Pittsburgh Steelers hosting the Miami Dolphins—embodies that as well as any game could. Having survived a potentially fatal motorcycle accident, Steelers quarterback Ben...

SMALL-BOX IS BEAUTIFUL

Sure, Wal-Mart may rule the retail universe in America, and big-box stores like Tesco and Carrefour are the rising powers in Europe. But Japan, as usual, is a little different. One of the hottest retail trends in Japan has nothing to do with the high-volume, ultralow-price model that is killing off rival categories from Arkansas to Alsace. The big thing in Japan is the 100 Yen shop, an echo of the dollar stores that are approaching extinction in the American shopping scene.Convenience-store...

And the Beat Goes On

More than 20 percent of the coronary bypass operations in the country are done 'off pump,' with the heart pounding in the chest like the living thing it is.

NANNY TO THE RESCUE

It's been 40 years since Walt Disney's Mary Poppins told us a spoonful of sugar would help the medicine go down. Today's nannies may not be as syrupy, but they are set to become 2005's hottest pop icons, umbrellas or no. In movies, musicals and television, the nanny is the heroine du jour. She's upstaging mom as more fun, younger, prettier and--to top it off--better at taking care of the kids. Last month Madonna publicly criticized her best pal Gwyneth Paltrow for even attempting parenthood...

STRESSED OUT AT THE FRONT

Sgt. Kim Eimers understands now why her father never talked about his time as a soldier in Vietnam. When she gets back from Iraq, where she's stationed with the Fourth Infantry Division in Baqubah, she doesn't think she'll talk about her wartime experience much, either. Her own worst moment came when a mortar round hit her mess hall at the Third Brigade's base, during dinnertime. "I just lost it," she says. But so far her family still hasn't heard about the incident.Capt. Glenn Palmer's worst...

RUSSIAOil and the OligarchsYukos, Russia's largest oil company, may soon gain some American friends.

U.S.-SAUDI ARABIAMarriage CrisisThe United States and Saudi Arabia could be headed for a monumentally ugly divorce. The marriage was always one of convenience. But the issue today isn't personal. It's business--trillions of dollars, in fact.Last month a Pentagon advising panel heard a briefing that labeled the Saudis an enemy of the United States. This month South Carolina lawyer Ronald Motley announced a suit targeting several Arab banks, the government of Sudan and a few key Saudi royals...

The Quest For The Herbal Holiday

A hydrotherapist wearing an apron empties a glass of what appears to be good Bordeaux into my whirring Jacuzzi. "This," she says, "is red vine extracts, to help circulation." Following the bath, I am wrapped in a sticky blend of local honey and wine yeast, then scrubbed with grape seeds. And after a swim in an indoor pool filled with thermal waters, I feast on a four-course dinner in a restaurant fine enough to have earned a Michelin star in its first year.Hey, it's a small price to pay for a...

President George W. Bush's talk of "a new relationship" with Russia in which the cold-war standoff gives way to "a new strategic paradigm." Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is in Moscow this week, in fact, for talks tying U.S. missile defenses to deep cuts in nuclear weapons. But NEWSWEEK has learned that, behind the scenes, the administration is embarking on a 10-year, multibillion-dollar program to modernize capabilities to make nuclear weapons.The force behind the program--formally titled...

Kings Of Cool

The driving rain doesn't stop thousands of techno faithful from converging on Tokyo's Club Zepp on a Saturday night. The crowd cheers when the star of the evening--DJ sensation Ken Ishii--steps onto a giant stage, stalked by a white-hot spotlight. A 30-foot-tall "jumbotron" screen flashes the DJ's name, while thumping "techno" music fills the cavernous room. Dressed casually in black jeans and a green T shirt (from his own designer-clothing label), the spindly Ishii, 30, strokes his goatee...

All Of Europe Is In Play

Klaus Esser hasn't been getting much sleep lately. The feisty, tennis-trim CEO of Mannesmann spent the past three weeks hunkered down with advisers in his Dusseldorf, Germany, office overlooking the Rhine, getting ready for the attack he knew was coming. Chris Gent, CEO of Vodafone AirTouch and his erstwhile ally in the mobile-telephony business, was preparing to buy Esser's company--right out from under him.Sure enough, on Sunday, Nov. 14, Mannesmann received a "friendly" 103 billion euro...

Black Beauty's New Face

ALEK WEK GIGGLES A LOT. SHE giggles at the mere mention of Method Man, her favorite rapper, and she giggles when she talks about sashaying down the runways of New York, Paris and Milan. And why shouldn't she? At 20, Wek is the hottest face in fashion, keeping heads turning with her flawless ebony skin, tightly cropped hair and never-ending legs.

An Irresistible Case

Joe Hartzler Always Relished the big-time cases. As one of Chicago's hottest federal prosecutors in the 1980s, he put away Puerto Rican terrorists and corrupt public officials, winning over juries with his Boy Scout's demeanor and first-rate legal mind. In 1989, as Hartzler parlayed his success into a job with a prestigious private firm, he visited a doctor about the strange weakness in his legs. The diagnosis was multiple sclerosis, the neurological disease that would eventually rob him of his...

Prehistoric Human Fossils: My Big Left Foot

The label on the box of rubble unearthed at South Africa's Strekfontein cave in the 1920s said it contained prehistoric baboon bones. But as Ronald Clarke of the University of Witwatersrand rummaged through it last September, he spied four bones that instead formed part of the left foot of a human ancestor who lived at least $ million years ago. Like a proverbial missing link, Clarke and Phillip Tobias announced last week in the journal Science, "Little Foot" shows a unique combination of an...

The Rise Of The Overclass

You've probably never heard of the overclass, which is just how its members like it; they have a lot to answer for. They are the people who put Jim Carrey on magazine covers, who renamed blue-green "teal" and keep loaning money to Donald Trump--not out of any sinister conspiracy to ruin the country but because, well, it's their job. As "professionals" and "managers" they lay claim to an increasing share of the national income, but they wind up spending most of it at mirror-walled restaurants...

NO LAUGHING MATTER

IT WAS ALL SLIGHTLY FARCICAL. First came the reporters, representing news organizations ranging from "A Current Affair" to The New York Times, swarming at the federal courthouse as they waited for a former $12,817-a-year clerk to sue the president of the United States for allegedly making a crude pass at her in a hotel room while he was governor of Arkansas. The woman, Paula Jones, failed to show up, though an Elvis impersonator and James McDougal, a failed Arkansas thrift baron (now running...

The Barbie-Ken Murders

THE HOTTEST NEWSPAPER IN CANADA last week was Tuesday's edition of The Washington Post, which isn't even published there. The Post carried a meticulously detailed story on one of the most horrific murder cases in Canadian history--a series of sex-and-torture killings allegedly committed by a handsome young middle-class couple. The appalling facts of the case have been suppressed by an Ontario judge, who sent the wife to prison for manslaughter, banning publication of most of the facts so her...

Hollywood Square-Off

WHAT IS THE measure of true grit? Consider the Boston tycoon, caught VW in a hotel fire, who clung by one hand from a third-floor window. Surrounded by flames, he kept his cool by counting to 10, over and over, until help finally came. Doctors did not expect him to live, let alone walk or play tennis. Today he does both, despite a stump of a right hand and legs that were burnt to the arteries.That bit of lore defines Sumner Redstone. it should be remembered by anyone who doubts his ability to...
