MILAN (AP) \u2014 When he creates artwork, Omar Hassan doesn't get out his paintbrushes; he gets out his boxing gloves.

The 29-year-old has combined his two passions, with the goal of bringing the disciplines closer.

Hassan, born in Milan to an Italian mother and Egyptian father, creates the works by dipping his glove in paint and punching the canvas, stretched over cardboard to keep it from breaking.

He calls the series \"Breaking Through.\" It premiered in London, was later shown in Miami and is now being shown in Milan at the M.A.C. cultural space through Oct. 9. It travels to New York in November.

Hassan's paintings sell for between \u20ac8,000 and 40,000 euros ($8,900 and $44,500), which he calls \"a great satisfaction, but not the goal.\"

For Hassan, the dream of becoming an artist came first, and he started with graffiti street art before an arts degree at the prestigious Brera Academy. At the same time, he started to train as a boxer, but never competed professionally due to diabetes.

Hassan says boxing has shaped him as a person and influenced him artistically.

\"In life you are alone, you have to fight, you sometimes get a minute to breathe but you have to get back in to fight. If you fall you have to leap back up and that's life. We are all boxers,\" he says.

ROME (AP) \u2014 Italian police have found two Van Gogh paintings that were stolen from an Amsterdam museum in 2002 hidden in a farmhouse near an organized crime syndicate's Naples-area stronghold, investigators said Friday.

The paintings, discovered without their frames, are in \"relatively good condition,\" the Van Gogh Museum said in a statement on its website. It said the two paintings are the 1882 work \"Seascape at Scheveningen\" and a later work, \"Congregation leaving the Reformed Church in Nuenen.\"

The earlier painting contains grains of sand that were stirred up from the beach as Van Gogh worked. The other depicts a church in the south of the Netherlands where the artist's father was the pastor.

The recovered masterpieces, propped up on easels, were unveiled for reporters at a news conference in Naples. Museum director Axel Rueger said Italian investigators contacted the museum earlier in the week and asked it to send an expert to examine the paintings. Art experts determined they are authentic.

\"Needless to say it's a great day for us today,\" Rueger told Sky TG24 TV. \"We hope they are soon back where they belong.\"

That might take some time. Authorities noted the paintings, found covered in cotton cloth in the farmhouse near Castellammare di Stabia, are part of an investigation of whether gangsters from the Camorra crime syndicate were behind the theft or if they got involved later.

Financial Police. Col. Giovanni Salerno said investigators looking into the syndicate's cocaine trafficking operations got a tip that the Camorra might have had the artworks.

When renowned masterpieces are stolen, a theft commissioned by a private collector who has already agreed to buy them is usually suspected, since it would be virtually impossible to sell them in the legitimate art market.

With \"enormous profits\" from drug trafficking, the Camorra are looking for new ways to invest their ill-gained wealth, which might include stolen artworks, Salerno said.

Salerno said a person at the farmhouse when the paintings were found \"didn't say a word\" about how they wound up there. He declined to elaborate, saying the case is still under investigation.

Investigators seized some 20 million euros ($22 million) worth of assets, including farmland, villas and apartments, which they say are linked to two Camorra drug kingpins, Mario Cerrone and Raffaele Imperiale, prosecutors Giovanni Colangelo and Filippo Beatrice said in a statement.

The organized crime investigative unit of the Financial Guard, a branch of the Italian police, often sequesters assets of suspected mobsters.

The museum said the paintings, inspected by a curator, do show \"some damage.\" It added that it is not known where the paintings were kept in the 14 years since they were stolen. Thieves broke into the museum overnight and made off with the works from the main exhibition hall, were dozens of Van Gogh paintings were on display.

The seascape work had some paint in the bottom left corner broken away, with the other had \"a few minor damages at the edges of the canvas,\" the museum statement said. Rueger said the museum owes a debt of gratitude to Italian authorities.

\"After all these years, you no longer dare count on a possible return,\" he said.

Herb Alpert, \"Human Nature\" (Herb Alpert Presents)

Why mess with success?

Pop-jazz trumpeter Herb Alpert has sold records by the truckload since the 1960s, and if his easy-listening style has become a byword for elevator music, that doesn't make it any less influential.

The 81-year-old founder of the Tijuana Brass returns with an album \u2014 his fourth in three years \u2014 featuring original compositions alongside tracks by songwriters including Burt Bacharach, seasoned with a light sprinkling of electronic dance music.

Alpert remains a skilled bandleader and arranger. The title track, made famous by Michael Jackson, entirely suits the treatment it gets here: relaxed and largely instrumental, with a Latin groove and a bubbling electronic bassline. The same is true of the lighter-than-air arrangement of Bacharach and Hal David's \"Alfie.\"

The main new element is the strand of electronica underlying Alpert's languid trumpet. It's hardly a radical departure to Alpert's sound, but a skittering electro beat propels Bacharach's \"Don't Go Breaking My Heart\" and Alpert's composition \"Incognito.\"

Best of the lot is the closing track, \"Doodles,\" a perky, hip-moving dance tune.

Times change, but Herb Alpert remains resolutely true to himself. And you don't sound this laid-back without working extremely hard.

Bon Iver, \"22, A Million\" (Jagjaguwar)

Some weirdness pervades the release of \"22, A Million,\" the third album by Bon Iver \u2014 symbols, images and liner notes that feel like they're fraught with meaning. Some of it might be nonsense.

But then there's the music.

An adventurous journey in sound, \"22, A Million\" is never dull. Altered voices, the familiar falsetto of Bon Iver's mastermind, Justin Vernon, and acoustic and electronic shape-shifting stretch the conventional boundaries of song.

The album \"is part love letter, part final resting place of two decades of searching for self-understanding like a religion,\" we are told. \"If 'Bon Iver, Bon Iver' built a habitat rooted in physical spaces, then '22, A Million' is the letting go of that attachment to a place.\"

See, that might be nonsense; it's at least self-consciously artsy. So it's tempting to dismiss this as an ultimately meaningless collection of look-at-me life themes for hipsters.

But then you give the music another listen.

There are extraordinary moments of sound on this album, with just enough melody to sustain them. A prime example, a cut called \"8(Circle)\" \u2014 the title itself is a symbol \u2014 builds from a heartbeat pulse through vaguely achy lyrics on a tidal swell to a spirited crescendo.

Pretensions notwithstanding, it is beautiful.

Will Bon Iver's growing body of sonic experimentation lose its charm and sound dated, like Moby, when the shine wears off?

We may not know for a while \u2014 but it hasn't happened yet.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Alicia Keys has always been a supporter of female empowerment, so when the singer watched the new film \"Queen of Katwe\" and saw its female lead, Phiona Mutesi, win best male chess player, she was overjoyed.

\"That was like so good and she played against all these boys because there wasn't anybody else she could play against, and she was the best of all,\" Keys said. \"I think that was really, really powerful.\"

It was one of the many scenes in the film starring Lupita Nyong'O that inspired the piano-playing star to write \"Back to Life,\" a song about hope and perseverance that plays at the movie's end.

\"As far as we feel like we've come \u2014 and as far as we've come, we definitely have made strides forward \u2014 it's such an important reminder to know that when given opportunity, young people, especially girls, really flourish,\" Keys said in an interview Wednesday. \"It's just that simple.\"

\"Queen of Katwe,\" which opened last week, stars Madina Nalwanga as a gifted chess player from the Katwe slums in Kampala, Uganda, who reaches new heights in the international chess world. Nyong'O plays the role of her mother and David Oyelowo is her optimistic and passionate chess coach. The true story was directed by Mira Nair.

Keys said it was emotional watching the film, which highlights Uganda, a place Keys has visited and done charity work with through her Keep a Child Alive organization.

\"All over the world, and even in all of our backyards, there's just so many incredible stories ... (and) it's great to be a part of continuing to just evolve and diversify the stories that we see and hear,\" she said. \"It's personal to me in the way that I can identify with Phiona finding her way, finding herself. When I say 'Back to Life,' it's like finding your greatest (self), finding what makes you alive. I feel like I myself am learning that more and more every day.\"

Keys said she's hoping \"Back to Life\" will satisfy fans who are waiting for her next album, though it could drop any day.

\"This is definitely like the best music I've made in my life yet ... because it's like the most vulnerable, most urgent ... it just has such a good vibe to it,\" said Keys, who has won 15 Grammys and released five studio albums. \"It's really kind of this dope cross between art, activism, what's going on in the world, how it makes us feel, who we are; it's personal, it's relatable, it's musical.\"

PHILADELPHIA (AP) \u2014 A Philadelphia fifth-grader ditched school for the chance to meet rock legend Bruce Springsteen and \"The Boss\" gladly played along by signing the boy's absence excuse note.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports (http://bit.ly/2dzlNOW ) that Michael Fenerty attended a meet-and-greet with the New Jersey native Thursday at the Free Library of Philadelphia with his dad.

Springsteen was in town for a book signing to promote his new autobiography, \"Born to Run.\"

Wanting to follow school procedure, the boy's father brought along a pre-typed note that Springsteen signed to excuse his son's absence.

Springsteen told the boy that he would have to read the note first because that's how he got in trouble with his first contract.

The school's principal only received a photocopy of the note.

SAYVILLE, N.Y. (AP) \u2014 A new museum is being planned in suburban New York to honor the Navy SEALs.

Officials say the museum could open sometime in 2018 at a county park on eastern Long Island.

It will be named for Lt. Michael P. Murphy . The Medal of Honor recipient died along with 18 others in a gun battle in eastern Afghanistan in June 2005.

Their story was chronicled in the book and film, \"Lone Survivor.\"

The museum would be the third honoring SEALs. The others are in Fort Pierce, Florida and Coronado, California.

New York state Sen. Thomas Croci (KROW'-chee) says a $400,000 state grant will help fund the project. The total cost is estimated at up to $4 million. A foundation named for Murphy will lead the fundraising project.

STOCKHOLM (AP) \u2014 The panel that awards the Nobel Prize in literature says this year's winner will be announced on Oct. 13, a week later than in previous years.

Swedish Academy member Per Wastberg confirmed the date to The Associated Press on Friday.

Normally the literature award is announced in the same week as the other Nobel Prizes \u2014 which are set for next week \u2014 but Wastberg said this year will be different because of the academy's schedule.

He said the academy always meets four Thursdays in a row in the fall to discuss Nobel candidates, starting the penultimate Thursday in September.

This year that day fell on Sept. 22, later than usual, meaning the fourth and final meeting will be held Oct. 13.

The Swedish Academy is typically the last of the Nobel Prize-awarding institutions to set the date of its announcement. Amid the secrecy of the Nobel process, a later date can set off speculation about disagreements in the academy, which Wastberg insisted was not the case this year.

\"It's just math,\" he said.

The literature date completes the schedule for this year's Nobel Prize announcements, which start Monday with the medicine prize, followed by physics on Tuesday, chemistry on Wednesday and the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday.

The Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences, added to the other awards in 1968 through a donation by Sweden's central bank, will be announced on Oct. 10.

Each prize is worth 8 million Swedish kronor, or about $930,000.

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) \u2014 Prosecutors and the defense lawyer in the 2014 crash that injured actor Tracy Morgan are due in court in November.

The Home News Tribune (http://mycj.co/2dcnLWb ) reports Nov. 9 was set for a status conference after both sides met at the Middlesex County Courthouse in New Brunswick on Thursday.

Authorities have charged Wal-Mart truck driver Kevin Roper of Georgia with aggravated manslaughter, vehicular homicide and aggravated assault. He has pleaded not guilty.

Investigators say Roper was speeding when he crashed into a limo van carrying Morgan and others on the New Jersey Turnpike. Morgan was injured and his friend and fellow comedian James McNair was killed.

Morgan reached a settlement with Wal-Mart last year.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Tim Burton is getting criticized on social media over his explanation on why his new movie's cast is overwhelmingly white.

The major characters in Burton's \"Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children\" are all white, save for Samuel L. Jackson's Barron.

When asked about the lack of a diverse cast, Burton told Bustle \"things either call for things, or they don't.\" He went on to say \"I grew up watching blaxploitation movies, right? And I said, that's great. I didn't go like, OK, there should be more white people in these movies.\"

Jackson commented that \"Tim's a really great guy\" and that he doesn't think the lack of diversity is \"any fault of his or his method of storytelling.\"

The comments made Burton a trending topic on Twitter on Thursday.

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) \u2014 The newest members of the film academy will cast their first Oscar ballots this season, but the choice for Oscar host \u2014 usually decided in October \u2014 will be strictly up to Oscar brass.

Yet that didn't stop a few of the new recruits from chiming in on the process at a private welcome reception held earlier this week by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences .

\"Oh, my God!\" said Oscar nominated screenwriter Phyllis Nagy at the prospect of picking an Academy Awards host. \"Well, I understand they don't want to do it, but Tina Fey and Amy Poehler: They should be Oscar hosts.\"

\"Black Panther\" star Chadwick Boseman didn't hesitate to share his choice: Kevin Hart.

\"I think he wants to do it,\" Boseman said. \"Why not Kevin Hart?\"

Visual effects artist Kevin Baillie had a more unconventional suggestion.

\"I know this is going to sound kind of crazy, but I actually think JJ Abrams would do an amazing job at hosting the Oscars,\" he said. \"He is funny, he's smart as a tack and he's really embedded in the industry. He's not an actor. He's not a comedian. But man he would do a good job.\"

Actress Rita Wilson, who joined the academy this year after decades in the business, has a special actor in mind for the job.

\"Well, I would nominate my husband,\" she said of her hubby and fellow academy member, Tom Hanks. \"I think he'd be really good. But I'm biased.\"

MIAMI (AP) \u2014 It's day two in Miami federal court for the sentencing hearing of a former concert promoter who prosecutors say defrauded thousands of investors out of $200 million.

Prosecutors want a federal judge on Friday to impose a sentence of more than 17 years behind bars for 73-year-old Jack Utsick, who pleaded guilty to mail fraud in June. They say Utsick fleeced nearly 3,000 investors by hiding a decade of losses by Worldwide Entertainment Inc. and promising double-digit returns.

Worldwide promoted tours by numerous top-level acts including the Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac and David Bowie. Utsick's attorney says he never intended to defraud investors and hoped to turn the company's fortunes around.

Utsick is asking for a lenient sentence of about six years. He was extradited from Brazil in 2014.

WASHINGTON (AP) \u2014 The East Building of the National Gallery of Art in Washington is reopening after a 3-year, $69 million renovation.

The East Building houses the museum's modern art collection and several temporary exhibit spaces. It was designed by I.M. Pei and originally opened in 1979.

The renovation added more than 12,000 square feet of exhibition space along with new stairs and a new elevator.

The permanent collection features works by some of the biggest names in 20th-Century art, including Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Amedeo Modigliani, Georgia O'Keefe and Mark Rothko.

Three new temporary exhibits will also welcome visitors when the building opens its doors Friday. They include works by Barbara Kruger, a collection of contemporary photography and works given to the museum by Virginia Dwan from her renowned personal collection.

VIENNA (AP) \u2014 An Austrian court has begun trying U.S. rapper Freddie Gibbs on charges of sexual abuse.

He was indicted for allegedly exploiting the dazed state of a 17-year old woman whose drinks were possibly spiked to sexually abuse her after a nightclub appearance by Gibbs last year.

Gibbs, whose real name is Fredrick Tipton, denies the accusations.

Absent from the court in Vienna Friday was a bodyguard sought for alleged sexual abuse of a 16-year old woman who had accompanied the 17-year old to Gibbs' hotel. He is believed to be somewhere in the United States.

The Rusty Nail on North Flowing Wells Road will serve its final beers Friday night.

Last call is midnight Friday, Sept. 30, and once they clear the tables and lock the doors, the 44-year-old tavern will be no more, said longtime owner Susan Compton.

This is the second Tucson bar that had been around more than 40 years to close this week. After a 46-year run, the Boondocks Lounge on North First Avenue closed for good Thursday.

Compton early this week finalized the sale of the Rusty Nail property at 4415 N. Flowing Wells Road, near West Wetmore Road. She notified her three part-time employees and posted a note on Facebook: \u201cThe Rusty Nail Tavern would like to thank everyone for all the great years! We regret to inform everyone that we will be closing our doors forever at close on Friday. Come in and say bye this week.\u201d

The Rusty Nail has been a fixture in the Flowing Wells neighborhood since 1972 and was a popular early-morning drinking hole for shift workers from the mines. Compton, a South Dakota native who moved to Tucson to attend the University of Arizona, bought the bar in 1989, nearly a decade after earning a business degree.

It was Compton\u2019s second bar in Tucson; she bought the nearly 70-year-old Bay Horse Tavern, a popular UA-area bar on East Grant Road, two years after graduating.

Compton described the Rusty Nail as a quintessential blue-collar corner bar, where miners, plumbers, masons and others sat shoulder-to-shoulder enjoying a cold one after work. Business dropped when the mines closed; it dropped again when the state banned smoking.

\u201cPeople now get a 12-pack and go home and drink a beer and smoke a cigarette on the patio,\u201d Compton lamented.

She said she had considered for a while the idea of selling the bar, but didn\u2019t really act on it until six weeks ago. A friend introduced her to a real estate specialist who convinced her the property could be sold quickly. Five days later, they identified a buyer.

Compton said it is almost certain the new owner will not open a tavern on the property. The sale included the land and the building, but she has not heard what will become of the building.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, Oct. 4, Compton will open the tavern at 6 a.m. to sell all of the memorabilia that has been collected over the past 44 years including posters on the walls. The sale will run through noon. She said she has to have the building empty for the new owners on Oct. 6.

The Rusty Nail will be open from noon to midnight Friday.

BUENA PARK, Calif. (AP) \u2014 More than 3,000 people have signed a petition asking Knott's Berry Farm to reopen a Halloween horror attraction that was closed after mental health advocates said it was insensitive to the mentally ill.

The virtual reality attraction was shut down this week at Knott's in Buena Park, California's Great America in Santa Clara and Canada's Wonderland near Toronto.

The attraction initially was called FearVR: 5150 \u2014 the number of a California state code involving the committal of those with dangerous psychiatric problems. The story line is about a demonically possessed hospital patient.

A new Change.org petition asks Knott's and its corporate owner, Cedar Fair Entertainment, to reinstate FearVR.

The petition says the story involves possession \u2014 not mental illness \u2014 and argues that the critics hadn't experienced the attraction.
