Arts and culture in brief the week ahead in Costa Rica

first_imgMonday is a national holiday: the Annexation of the Partido de Nicoya Festival, which this year commemorates the 192nd anniversary of the day when the Partido de Nicoya, today known as Guanacaste, became a part of Costa Rica. There are ways to celebrate nationwide, and the province of Guanacaste will be bursting with events, but one of the most mouth-watering is certainlythe Festival de la Tortilla Palmeada al Aire at the Vocational High School in the town of Corralillo (Saturday, July 23 – Monday, July 25), where expert tortilla-shapers will feed the crowds their delicious wares as traditional music, cuisine, cimarronas and a Corn King and Queen entertain.Want to bask in guanacastequidad, but can’t get out of the capital? Check out a tour of Guanacaste trees in San José from Chepecletas (Saturday, July 23) or a folk music and dance festival at the Parque la Libertad in Desamparados, complete with food, comedy and the sale of handicrafts (Saturday, July 23 – Sunday, July 24).Across town at the National Stadium in La Sabana, the Festival Ditsö, which draws its name from the Bribri word for “seed,” will offer a wide range of products from small businesses, organic food, and artistic presentations throughout the weekend (Saturday, July 23 – Sunday, July 24).And now for something complete different: “Les Miserables” in Monteverde! The nonprofit Far Corners Community Musical Theatre stages the classic as its 10th annual youth musical production (Thursday, July 28 – Saturday, July 31). Can you hear the people sing?Finally, Keller Williams Costa Rica Realty will hold public service events in Jacó and Flamingo at their annual Red Day: in Jacó, they’ll collect donations for local nonprofits at the Mas x Menos supermarket from 10 am-4 pm (shoppers can pick up a list of needed items on their way into the store), and in Flamingo they will be painting a family’s home.

It would be a FIFA World Cup to be proud of.”“We have a story to be proud of as a nation, as a people and in football, and this package shares that story with the world,” Lowy said.last_img read more

New Adina Apartment Hotels to open in Leipzig Hamburg and Munich

first_imgNew Adina Apartment Hotels to open in Leipzig, Hamburg and MunichTFE Hotels celebrates its tenth year operating Australian designed and managed apartment hotels in Germany, with the opening of two new hotels in coming months at trendy Leipzig and Hamburg.Toga Hospitality (now TFE Hotels) opened its first hotel in Germany in 2007 at the famous Berlin Wall crossing point Checkpoint Charlie in the Mitte district, known as Berlin’s beating heart. The group created a new niche for high quality apartment hotels and today the brand is flourishing there, working towards opening its tenth hotel in Germany, which is set to open in Munich in 2019.Adina Apartment Hotels provide guests with a “home away from home” atmosphere, offering studios or apartments that have their own kitchen, laundry and living room, with the bonus of a 24-hour reception with friendly and knowledgeable hotel teams, restaurant and fitness centre with gym equipment, jacuzzi, pool and sauna. With Adina hotels managed by TFE Hotels, headquartered in Sydney, Aussie travellers will get a little touch of home away from home while in Germany, with Aboriginal art works and even Vegemite on the breakfast buffet!The Adina Apartment Hotel Leipzig opens in November 2017 in the city’s historic city centre and beside the medieval market square. This beautiful redeveloped office building turned hotel is one of only two high-rise buildings in the charming old town, next to the Museum of Modern Art and the recently opened Bruehl Arcaden shopping mall. Its 131 spacious studio apartments and 35 larger apartments cater to strong corporate demand afforded by Leipzig’s booming economy as a major logistics hub.Adina Apartment Hotel Hamburg Speicherstadt opens in February 2018 in the centre of Germany’s second largest city, between the famous redeveloped warehouse district ‘Speicherstadt’ and the main shopping district. It is a short walk to the new Elbphilharmonie concert hall and Hamburg’s HafenCity quarter. The hotel’s 202 apartments comprise studios, premier studios, and one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments. The fitness area on the first floor enjoys stunning views over Hamburg´s Speicherstadt, with a sauna and swimming pool.TFE Hotels CEO Rachel Argaman said the German openings were an exciting milestone for TFE Hotels, which had cemented its place as Germany’s primary premium apartment hotel provider since 2007, and added hotels last year in Frankfurt, Europe’s finance and banking capital, and in Nuremberg, the historic medieval town famous for its Christmas markets and castle.”“Before we launched our Australian model in Germany, there was an existing serviced apartment market, but we applied sophisticated design and excellent service, and a fully-serviced hotel model, in central locations, and found this worked very well,” she said.“The apartment hotel market will remain a niche segment in Germany, but as the pioneers in this segment, our model has great growth potential, augmented by the increasing mobility of the labour market, a growing city traveller segment and growing demand for flexible accommodation.”There are seven Adina Apartment Hotels in Germany and three more in the pipeline:Adina Apartment Hotel Berlin Checkpoint Charlie (2007)Adina Apartment Hotel Berlin Mitte (2009)Adina Apartment Hotel Frankfurt Neue Oper (2009)Adina Apartment Hotel Hamburg (2010)Adina Apartment Hotel Berlin Hackescher Markt (2011)Adina Apartment Hotel Frankfurt (2016)Adina Apartment Hotel Nuremberg (2016)Three Adina Apartment Hotels to open soonAdina Apartment Hotel Leipzig (Nov 2017)Adina Apartment Hotel Hamburg Speicherstadt (Feb 2018) Adina Apartment Hotel Munich (2019)Source = TFE Hotelslast_img read more

Echeverry’s company, Unique Vintage, based in Burbank, California, is the first Mattel collaboration for a fashion line based on Barbie outfits. (AP Photo/Bebeto Matthews) Iconic Barbie fashion comes alive in vintage collaboration by Leanne Italie, The Associated Press Posted Nov 13, 2018 8:32 am PDT NEW YORK — In time for her 60th birthday, Barbie has a new collaborator bringing her wide-ranging style to life for humans.One of the largest sellers of vintage-inspired clothes, Unique Vintage, is working with Barbie parent Mattel on the first women’s line to meticulously duplicate some of the doll’s most iconic early looks. In the process, the company also has taken care of the one thing critics love to hate about Barbie, her very plastic hourglass physique, by offering the outfits in sizes XS to 4X.The collaboration, Barbie x Unique Vintage, celebrates 1950s and ’60s Babs. The company that sells online and in about 500 boutiques around the world plans to go even bigger for Barbie’s big 6-0 next year, offering key fashion moments from across the rest of her decades.Until then, for fall, we caught up with all things Barbie x Unique Vintage in the swanky Jewel Suite designed by jeweler-to-the-stars Martin Katz in the Lotte New York Palace hotel on Madison Avenue. Katz paired a few of the looks with some of his own bling, from $36,000 button earrings in a rainbow of sapphires, garnets and tourmaline to a $48,000 cocktail ring of Bombay spinel cabochons and round diamonds.All of the glam pleases Katie Echeverry. She’s the founder, CEO and creative director of Unique Vintage, an 18-year-old company with 60 employees based in Burbank, California. With her long blonde locks and Barbie-esque dimensions, Echeverry said she was a Babs fan as a girl but was also a “tomboy” who loved to play softball.During a recent round of media interviews explaining how the collab came about, Echeverry donned a Kelly-green shawl dress worn by Barbie in 1962 and done by Unique Vintage in a forgiving stretch fabric. Noteworthy was Echeverry’s most definitely un-Barbie upper-arm tattoo, on proud display in the off-shoulder outfit, as she recalled her luck.“When I emailed Mattel, I didn’t think they’d actually reply back, but they did, and I was thrilled,” Echeverry told The Associated Press. “They ran with it. I couldn’t believe they hadn’t done it before.”Echeverry worked closely with Mattel but “they didn’t dictate what I chose.” Mattel opened its archives to her as she went about duplicating outfits, with adjustments to account for the real human form. She said she chose looks that “spoke to me.”Barbie, the doll, first hit store shelves in 1959. That year, she stepped out in a swirl of gold and white brocade for evening. The dress was among those Echeverry picked and sells for $118 on uniquevintage.com. The matching collar coat with three-quarter sleeves trimmed in faux fur goes for $148.Unique Vintage has brought Barbie fashion full circle, in a sense. It was a designer for actual women, Charlotte Johnson, who was hired to be the doll’s first fashion creator. A Mattel team took over soon after Barbie’s debut.Echeverry’s first Barbie go-around dropped in the spring. Social media fans of vintage and of Barbie took notice and sales have been brisk, she said. For fall, her prices range from $88 for an A-shaped Barbie flare skirt in green with a white hem to $198 for the doll’s red matinee sleeveless sheath dress and short jacket trimmed with calico-colored faux fur.It was important to Echeverry to choose looks that have remained iconic through the years but were wearable by women in the broad range of sizes she is committed to providing.“I was like a kid in a candy store,” she said. After the first season went on sale, Echeverry watched the response online, where nostalgia kicked in among fans who recalled favourite outfits, some gushing how they’d always wondered what it would be like to wear the looks themselves.That goes a long way in explaining why Echeverry was more than a little dedicated to getting the clothes right.“I went online and ordered every single vintage outfit myself. Mattel offered to lend them to me, but I was a little nervous about having some of their archives,” she said. “In our fittings, we literally had the original Barbie dress next to the model. We moved Barbie. When I sourced fabrics overseas, I had Barbie clothes in my pocket and I was making sure we got as close as possible.”She was also dedicated to the price points she knows her buyers are after.“I know our customer and she doesn’t want to spend a lot of money, and I understand that,” Echeverry said.Unique Vintage sells shoes, hats, gloves, sunglasses and jewelry to complement the Barbie outfits. The company offers a red pillbox hat, for instance, to go with Barbie’s 1962 red flare coat done in a soft felt with the same swing and puffy three-quarter sleeves and bow the doll wore, down to the white lining done in a white poly satin.Barbie wore a cloche tweed hat with a rose with her “Career Girl” tweed pencil skirt set in 1963. Unique Vintage offers a black fascinator with a rose instead, for $22.As for her afternoon of glam in the Martin Katz suite, with its shiny black grand piano and sparkling crystal ceiling decor on the 53rd floor of the Towers at Lotte, Echeverry was impressed.“This is so glamorous. It’s so much fun. The view’s incredible,” she said.While noting Barbie’s evolution as a “strong kick-ass woman” over the years, Echeverry said she was ready for a bit of her own reality after her recent promotional go-round.“It’s unusual to find me in a dress,” she said. “As soon as this interview’s over I’ll be putting on my jeans and my T-shirt and be back to the regular Katie.”Leanne Italie, The Associated Presslast_img read more

United Nations will see candidates vying for the top job of Secretary-General make their pitch to the public from April 12-14 The contenders will each have a two-hour slot each to present their case to the General Assembly which include 193 Member States and Observers the State of Palestine and the Holy See and answer any questions The occasion will be broadcast live on the UN’s webcast site in what they describe as the “job interview in front of the whole world” This push towards transparency is in sharp contrast to previous contests for the role where candidates and the governments backing them usually campaigned behind closed doors There are currently eight candidates half of whom are women hoping to succeed incumbent Ban Ki-moon There is also no deadline for joining the race and according to the Associated Press there are rumors that Vice President of the European Commission Kristalina Georgieva and German Chancellor Angela Merkel could make strong late entries Irina Bokova Bulgaria According to the Financial Times the UN has an informal rotation system for Secretary-General and it is widely expected that the next chief will come from Eastern Europe There’s also never been a woman to take the position and so the 63-year-old Bokova has emerged as one of the favorites The Bulgarian is the first woman to head UNESCO a role she has held since 2009 She was also the former Bulgarian ambassador to France and Monaco and speaks four languages: English French Russian and Spanish Natalia Gherman Moldova The senior diplomat from Moldova is the daughter of the first president of the country Mircea Snegur 47 She served as the country’s foreign minister and worked as an ambassador in numerous European countries According to the Guardian Gherman’s main involvement with the UN has been to push its agenda on development with a focus on human rights and gender equality Igor Luksic Montenegro At 39 Liksic is one of the youngest contenders He is currently the foreign minister of Montenegro and was prime minster of the country from 2010-2012 His pro-NATO and pro-Western stance says the Guardian will not endear him to Moscow Danilo Turk Slovenia Credited as being one of Slovenia’s founding fathers the former Slovenian president served as a UN ambassador in the 90s and worked in a senior political post under former Secretary-General Kofi Annan He has also

Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5)—slated for release this month—has lost a major customer before even going to print Thomas Insel director of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) declared last week on his blog that the institution will no longer use the manual to guide its research Instead NIMH is working on a long-term plan to develop new diagnostic criteria and treatments based on genetic physiologic and cognitive data rather than symptoms alone Insel’s pronouncement is the most recent hit in a long barrage of criticism that has rained down upon the latest DSM revision process since it began over a decade ago "While DSM has been described as a ‘Bible’ for the field" he wrote "it is at best a dictionary creating a set of labels and defining each" Although the manual’s strength has been to standardize these labels he wrote "[t]he weakness is its lack of validity" and "[p]atients with mental disorders deserve better" Although Insel’s blog was reported as a "bombshell" and "potentially seismic" NIMH’s decision to scrap the DSM criteria has been public for several years says Bruce Cuthbert director of NIMH’s Division of Adult Translational Research and Treatment Development In 2010 the agency began to steer researchers away from the traditional categories of DSM by posting new guidance for grant proposals in five broad areas Rather than grouping disorders such as schizophrenia and depression by symptom the new categories focus on basic neural circuits and cognitive functions such as those for reward arousal and attachment Helena Kraemer a biostatistician at Stanford University in Palo Alto California who was responsible for field trials of diagnostic categories proposed for DSM-5 says that Insel is right that the NIMH’s new program called Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) is "the direction we have to go" However she says "he’s wrong in saying that DSM-5 is to be set aside" When it comes to validity there now is no gold standard she says "The DSM is a series of successive approximations" Kraemer’s vision is that future versions of the manual will not have to wait 10 to 15 years for revision but incorporate new scientific data from RDoC as it emerges She says that a meeting is scheduled in June to discuss the possibility of converting the DSM into an electronic document that could incorporate those changes "Everybody I’ve talked to about it thinks that’s a good idea" Frank Farley a psychologist at Temple University in Philadelphia Pennsylvania and former president of the American Psychological Association (APA) isn’t convinced that the whole process doesn’t need to start from scratch however The measures of agreement between experts for several of the disorders in the new DSM-5 were "terrible" he says "What it suggests is that we need to go back to the drawing board" In 2011 Farley and colleagues circulated a petition for APA to submit the new revisions to independent review Although 14000 professionals and more than 50 organizations signed on he says "Nothing happened We got a ‘Thanks but no thanks’ letter back" Both RDoC and DSM are necessary says William Carpenter a psychiatrist at the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore Carpenter chairs the psychosis working group for the new DSM-5 manual and is one of three external advisers to RDoC On a practical level researchers and physicians need DSM to help characterize and treat patients in the field he says "If you don’t you just have ‘Mental health I II III IV and V’ " On the other hand Carpenter says drug development for psychiatric disorders "has been stalemated for decades" due to our lack of understanding of the biological roots of psychiatric disease "What I would hope for our field is that clinically we get into the habit of deconstructing these syndromes into the specific pathologies that the patients have" such as hallucinations and impaired emotional processing Once we understand the neural circuitry and neurobiology that cause such symptoms he adds "hopefully this will help drag drug companies into trying to make novel discoveries instead of me-too drugs that they’ve lived off of for all these years" Implementing RDoC will present some practical challenges Carpenter acknowledges "This does shift the paradigm" Rather than excluding all study subjects who do not fit a DSM diagnosis such as major depression for example the new approach might include a range of participants with different diagnoses who all demonstrate anhedonia the impaired ability to experience pleasure and might look for underlying brain abnormalities that they share in common "I bet that the rough spots are overcome pretty quickly" Carpenter says "but of course we have to see how well that actually works out" Cuthbert emphasizes that the new system is a framework for research not a diagnostic manual and that it has not yet been tested "It’s a platform to get people moving in the right direction" he says In the meantime the DSM "has been and continues to be very useful in psychiatry" he says For the sake of patients he says "it’s important to communicate that we do have good treatments for mental disorders" Belgrade: Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic had a street named after him in Ub a municipality in central Serbia where he was born a local official said
