The Association for German Language (VDS) decried Wednesday what it called "destructive intrusion" of gender neutral word modifications, including the recent trend of placing a "gender star" or asterisk at the end of job names and titles.

Gallery that has the finest collection of Mexican folk art

Washington: It’s been said that if you’re not an artist when you first visit San Miguel de Allende, you’ll certainly be one by the time you leave.

He travels to remote areas of Mexico to meet the artists and learn about their craft, and then he brings their work back to his gallery, where he imparts his...

Winnie Mandela, his former wife, got in touch on his...
