Discounts on tap for this weekend’s Small Business Saturday and Museum Store Sunday

We’re running out of days during Thanksgiving week to assign clever names. Sandwiched between Black Friday and Cyber Monday is Small Business Saturday, and in its second year, Museum Store Sunday. All of this is followed by Giving Tuesday.

What that means for shoppers in Wichita is deals on retail, services, memberships, food and drink. There’s also a chance to win prizes.

Nearly 70 businesses from the Douglas Design District, Old Town,

‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’ & the Real Operatives of the International Spy Museum

Tom Cruise doesn’t believe in half measures, and the attention to detail he’s brought to “Mission Impossible” over the last two decades is nothing short of astounding.

Example 1: Aerial coordinator Marc Wolff gave us some details about how the team filmed the breathtaking helicopter climax of “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” (out now on 4K, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital).

The progress was announced Monday morning, along with details of a US$205,000 donation from the German government for conservation equipment.

BELEN, N.M. — The mayor of a small New Mexico city has announced he will donate a year of his salary to help open a museum in town dedicated to a feminist artist.

KRQE-TV in Albuquerque reports Belen Mayor Jerah Cordova recently announced he would give around $10,000 toward an effort to erect a museum celebrating artist Judy Chicago.

The contemporary artist backed out of a deal with the city of Belen to open a museum showcasing her art following a backlash. Some resident protested the museum idea and said Chicago’s artistic focus on female genitalia would be “inappropriate” for children.

But supporters
