To mark the centenary, Michele has curated an exhibition in the Gucci Garden gallery, on Florence’s Piazza della Signoria, that underlines some watershed moments in his era.

"So you'll strike once, then twice again," says Gaza watchman Jamal Nasman. He shows no panic, though this call - from an Israeli officer - is deadly serious.Advance warning of an air strike on the building he looks after. And then this. The 13-story building on a quiet street contained residential apartments - and Hamas offices. Israel said Hamas used it for intelligence and military operations.Nasman told Reuters the block, which was evacuated, was his home for many years as well as his place of work."He called me. I thought it was someone from the building. I said, 'I'm listening, what do you want, the generator is working. Are you not coming down?' He told me 'no, stay with me, we want to hit the tower.' I said 'how can you? I felt devastated. I've been in the block for 20 years. It was my life." Amid the fiercest escalation in fighting between Israelis and Palestinians since 2014, the video of the call, captured by an onlooker, gives a rare insight into how Gaza's conflicts unfold.At least, sometimes. Israel confirmed it gave prior warning for civilians to leave. But that doesn't always happen when it strikes what it deems a military target."I told him, 'let me get the residents out, just give me a chance.' He said 'I will give you two or three hours, before hitting the block. First you have to listen. I will fire a warning rocket'. I asked 'a rocket from the drone'? He said 'yes'. He told me 'look up at the drone, we can see you and we know everything. I said OK."Israel says it makes every effort to preserve civilian life and accuses Hamas - which rules Gaza - of using civilian areas to mount operations.Residents of densely populated Gaza say Israeli actions are indiscriminate and aim to punish communities, not just militants. They say most strikes come without warning.

Satellite imagery captured on May 8 showed stunning cloud formations known as ‘von Karman vortices’ over Guadalupe Island, 150 miles west of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula.The formations “occur when the prevailing wind is diverted by elevated land features such as islands, mountaintops, or volcanoes … causing the air, and its subsequent clouds, to rotate into a spiral shape,” according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.The phenomenon was named after Theodore von Karman, a cofounder of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and one of the first scientists to describe the formation.

American consumers spent less at stores last month. U.S. retail sales unexpectedly stalled in April as the boost from stimulus checks faded. The Commerce Department said Friday sales were flat following a nearly 11% surge in March. Economists had expected sales would increase modestly.Once you strip out the impact of volatile items like food, gas and autos, the so-called core retail sales dropped 1.5% from a rise of over 7% in March.The weak sales data could raise anxiety about the economic recovery. Consumer spending accounts for more than two-thirds of economic activity. Fears about the virus linger, keeping many workers at home. And hiring slowed in April amid a shortage of workers. But retail sales are likely to pick up in the coming months amid record savings and a reopening economy. Households have accumulated at least $2.3 trillion in excess savings during the health crisis, and that should underpin spending this year.
