There's also a thoughtfully contextualized look at Crystal Bridges, the new American fine art museum opened by a Wal-Mart heiress near company headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas.

Congressional correspondent Andrea Seabrook considers the enduring impact of Ayn Rand's ideology on United States lawmakers. And the rapper Heavy D is remembered in this interview. Finally, how on earth does the music service Spotify work? And how does it make money? All is explained right here.
