NEW YORK - What is a photograph? From photography's very beginning, there has always been more than one answer to that question. On the medium's official launch in 1839, a photograph was both a precise, one-of-a-kind image permanently fixed on a mirror-like metal plate (the Daguerreotype) and a replicable print on paper, made from a paper negative (the calotype, or photogenic drawing). Ever since, what photographs look and feel like has continued to evolve with changing technology and aesthetic intent.

The New York Knicks were reportedly working on a buyout of Metta World Peace's contract Saturday. But there was nothing even the notorious Knicks public relations machine could do about the tweets of Daniel Artest , World Peace's brother. Among the highlights: "Ron wanted to be a knick his entire career and his dream became a nightmare. Knicks need an overhaul. Top to bottom. "Well. At least I got some nice knick gear. " "I'm not threatening [owner Jim ] Dolan on twitter tho. Lol. Some fan is locked up for that.

You're invited to a party. It's going to be fun, because it's being thrown by writer Chad Harbach, an editor of the literary magazine n+1, where he has been lightheartedly provocative. You're excited, because "MFA vs. NYC: The Two Cultures of American Fiction" - in the form of 18 essays divided into five sections - is debating one of the more contentious issues in literary America: whether getting an a master of fine arts degree in creative writing is a good idea, for the individual writer and book culture at large.

A mural depicting two lip-locked British bobbies created by the street artist Banksy sold at an auction in Miami on Tuesday for $575,000, which was at the low end of estimates. Two other Banksy works -- which the artist created during his monthlong "residency" in New York last year -- failed to meet sale expectations. The Banksy works were being sold as part of a street-art auction by Fine Art Auctions Miami. The Tuesday sale featured works by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Bambi, Keith Haring and others.

A man accused of building homemade bombs to wage jihad in New York City against U.S. military personnel and others has pleaded guilty to a state terrorism charge, officials announced Wednesday. Jose Pimentel, also known as Muhammad Yousuf and as Yusuf, pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of attempted criminal possession of a weapon as a crime of terrorism -- a state law passed after the Sept. 11, 2001, attack in New York. He is expected to be sentenced to 16 years in prison but could have received 15 years to life if convicted on the original charge, a high-level weapons possession offense as a crime of terrorism.

WASHINGTON - Defense lawyers in the upcoming New York terrorism trial of Osama bin Laden's son-in-law asked for a 45-day delay Tuesday, saying their case hinges on testimony that self-confessed Sept. 11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed is expected to give from his Guantanamo Bay prison cell. New York attorney Stanley Cohen said in court filings that Mohammed would receive written questions on Friday and would need at least four days to review the materials and respond, making it impossible for the federal conspiracy trial against his client, Sulaiman abu Ghaith, to begin Monday as scheduled.
