PHILADELPHIA – In late August 2011, Hurricane Irene caused destruction and flooding across the eastern United States, including historic levels of flooding in communities across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

A prominent member of the academy which awards the Nobel literature prize slammed this year's laureate Bob Dylan as arrogant on Friday, citing his total silence since the award was announced last week. The US singer-songwriter has not responded to repeated phone calls from the Swedish Academy, nor reacted in any way in public to the news. On the evening of October 13, the day the literature prize winner was announced, Dylan played a concert in Las Vegas during which he just sang his songs and made no comment at all to his fans.
Lady Gaga rose to fame with her shock-inducing outfits and remains the seventh most followed person on Twitter, but on her sober new album, she admits an unease in the era of social media. "Joanne," the now 30-year-old singer's first solo album in three years, marks a shift from the glam synthpop that made Gaga a club sensation to another retro sound -- unadorned soft rock, with forays into country. Gaga said she wrote "Angel Down," a grim ballad with a siren-like guitar backdrop, after the 2012 killing of Trayvon Martin, the 17-year-old African American shot by a neighborhood watch volunteer in Florida as he walked home with iced tea and candy.
A first US showing of rare old Korans opens Saturday in a Washington museum, highlighting a different side of Islam at a time when the religion's image in America has been scarred by a divisive presidential campaign. More than 60 Korans and Koranic texts, dating from as far back as the late seventh century and considered works of art for their exceptionally fine calligraphy, will be featured in "The Art of the Qur'an," running through February 20, 2017, at the Freer and Sackler museums, home to the Smithsonian Institution's Asian art collection. Most of them -- 47 of 63 -- were lent to Freer and Sackler from a single source: the Museum of Turkish and Islamic Arts in Istanbul.
