FILE - In this Sept. 6, 2014, file photo, artist Peter Max poses for a photo during his retrospective with the Road Show Company exhibit in Northbrook Court mall in Northbrook, Ill. Since he charged onto the pop-art stage a half-century ago, the progenitor of psychedelic art has stamped his creative presence on practically everything from the sides of an airliner and the hull of a Norwegian Cruise Lines ship to commemorative U.S. postage stamps and, most lately, an endless string of art galleries stretching from one end of the United States to the other. (Photo by Barry Brecheisen/Invision/AP, File)LOS ANGELES (AP) — If you haven't seen one of Peter Max's paintings or drawings today, chances are you haven't opened your eyes yet.

A portrait of Kremlin critic Nemtsov and flowers are pictured at the site where he was killed on February 27, with St. Basil's Cathedral seen in the background, at the Great Moskvoretsky Bridge in central MoscowBy Darya Korsunskaya and Gabriela Baczynska MOSCOW (Reuters) - Last week, when Boris Nemtsov was shot dead as he walked across a bridge next to the Kremlin, it took 11 minutes before a police car arrived at the scene, according to the time stamp on closed circuit television footage. Nemtsov was the most high profile opposition figure killed during President Vladimir Putin's 15-year rule. His shooting prompted accusations from Putin opponents, and Western states, that democratic freedoms in Russia were under attack. Russian President Vladimir Putin called it a shameful tragedy, and demanded a thorough investigation.
