Shakespeare's First Folio Goes Out On Tour

One of the world's most precious volumes starts a tour on Monday, in Norman, Okla. The Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C., is sending out William Shakespeare's First Folio to all 50 states, to mark the 400th anniversary of the bard's death. Published seven years after he died, the First Folio is the first printed collection of all of Shakespeare's plays.

The Folger has 82 First Folios — the largest collection in the world. It's located several stairways down, in a rare manuscript vault. To reach them, you first have to get through a fire door ... (if a fire did threaten these priceless objects, it would be extinguished not with water — never water near priceless paper — but with a system that removes oxygen from the room).

A massive safe door comes next — so heavy it takes two burly guards to open it, and then yet another door, which triggers a bell to alert librarians that someone has entered. After that, there's yet another door and an elevator waaaay down to a vault that nearly spans the length of a city block, says Folger director Michael Witmore.

This is where the library stores tens of thousands of pieces of paper — folios, plus half of everything printed in England from 1473 to 1660 and much more. And there, propped open on spongy wedges to protect the binding, is the First Folio.

"If you had to pick one book to represent Shakespeare, this is it," Witmore says.

Two of Shakespeare's pals put it together in 1623, after he died. John Heminges and Henry Condell were fellow actors, who felt the plays should be collected in a single large volume.

They also added in 18 of Shakespeare's plays that had never appeared in print, explains Witmore. "Without this book we probably wouldn't have ... Twelfth Night, Julius Caesar, Macbeth, The Winter's Tale ..."

Music legend Natalie Cole dead at 65, read the reactions of netizens

Natalie Cole

Soul singer Natalie Cole, the daughter of jazz legend Nat 'King' Cole who found success in her own right but struggled with substance abuse, has died at age 65, reports said Friday, AFP reports.

According to celebrity gossip site TMZ, Cole died at a Los Angeles hospital from heart failure. Representatives for the singer could not immediately be reached on New Year's Day.

Cole is the daughter of jazz legend Nat King Cole. She carved out her own success with R & B hits like "Our Love" and "This Will Be" before triumphantly intertwining their legacies to make his "Unforgettable" their signature hit together, AP writes.

Her family was devastated over the loss the iconic singer. A statement from her son Robert Yancy, and sisters Timolin and Casey Cole, reads:
"Natalie fought a fierce, courageous battle, dying how she lived ... with dignity, strength and honor. Our beloved Mother and sister will be greatly missed and remain UNFORGETTABLE in our hearts forever." 
 Meanwhile, long-time friend and fellow music icon Aretha Franklin was shocked after hearing of Cole's death. In a statement, she said:
"I had to hold back the tears. I know how hard she fought. She fought for so long. She was one of the greatest singers of our time."
Her career success highlighted by soaring achievements, including 9 Grammys and 30 million records sold worldwide, was equally matched by her battle over drug addiction and health issues. She rose to musical success in the mid–1970s as an R&B artist with the hits "This Will Be", "Inseparable", and "Our Love". After a period of failing sales and performances due to a heavy drug addiction, Cole re-emerged as a pop artist with the 1987 album Everlasting and her cover of Bruce Springsteen's "Pink Cadillac". In the 1990s, she re-recorded standards by her father, resulting in her biggest success, Unforgettable... with Love, which sold over seven million copies and also won Cole Album and Record of the Year honors  at the 1992 Grammys.

Here are some reactions of netizens on Twitter:
