No related posts. Sonámbulo performed at the finale of this year’s PechaKucha. Hundreds of people packed into the sixth floor of the parking structure on Avenida Escazú Wednesday night to see some of San José’s creative talent on display. Called PechaKucha, the event was the fourth of its kind; the first took place in 2007.PechaKucha is series of presentations involving 20 images each displayed for 20 seconds, while someone discusses creative work. The first PechaKucha Night was held in Tokyo, Japan, in 2003 and the term PechaKucha stems from the Japanese sound of conversation (“chit chat”). It was received so well that more than 580 cities now host nights of creative ingenuity every year. The cities include Miami, Amsterdam, Bogota, London, and Tel Aviv. Chris Rey Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham Architecture conceived the rapid-fire format for young designers, photographers and anyone with a creative idea to meet, network, and present their work to the public. The idea was to keep things to the point. According to PechaKucha’s website, “Give a microphone and some images to an architect – or most creative people for that matter – and they’ll go on forever! Give PowerPoint to anyone else and they have the same problem.”If you were thinking that the event sounds like TED Talks, you would be wrong on at least one count. Because anyone is allowed to present at PechaKucha nights, the format is considered “bottom up,” while TED Talks are “top down.”During San José’s fourth installation of PechaKucha Night, creative topics ranged from photography to the art of making beer to independent film-making. Juan Carlos Abarca presented photos of his sculpture work, which focused on the need to communicate, practicality and symmetry. One of his sculptures on display was a tortured-looking creature composed of rusted metal. This year’s event also shined for the craft beer provided by Costa Rica’s Craft Brewing Company, and a final performance by up-and-coming Costa Rican band Sonámbulo. Facebook Comments
So, a president and a president-elect walk into a news conference…stop me if you’ve heard this one before.Guatemalan president-elect and former comedian Jimmy Morales reaffirmed his opposition to decriminalizing drugs during a brief news conference with Costa Rican President Luis Guillermo Solís at Casa Presidencial on Thursday. Morales was in Costa Rica on a leg of a traditional tour of Central American countries before he takes office on Jan. 14.Morales’ words separated him from comments by former – and now disgraced – President Otto Pérez Molina, who mused about decriminalizing drugs as a possible solution to the violence that has plagued Guatemala and other Central American countries.“At this time, Guatemala’s vision is not decriminalization, nor legalization, nor anything in that direction,” Morales said.Morales won Guatemala’s presidential runoff election on Oct. 25, beating left-leaning former first lady Sandra Torres. Morales campaigned on a platform of zero tolerance for corruption, which rang true with voters following revelations of a massive customs fraud scandal that forced the Guatemalan president and vice president to resign. Both are in jail awaiting trial.But many have expressed doubts about Morales’ lack of political experience and his strong military backing. In 1996 Guatemala ended a 36-year civil war, in which military leaders were accused — and in some cases have been convicted — of mass human rights abuses. Some of Morales’ backers held high military positions during the war.See: The military powers behind Guatemala’s comedian presidential front-runnerSolís thanked Guatemala for its participation in an emergency regional meeting Tuesday between Central American countries to find a solution to the influx of Cuban migrants. Morales did not give specifics about what his position on the subject is, but said, “It will be too late if we haven’t dealt with this by the time I’m in office.”Morales said that Guatemalan and Mexican authorities would meet Friday to further discuss the “humanitarian corridor” that Costa Rica proposed to no avail Tuesday after Nicaragua said it would not let the Cubans cross the border.“Guatemala’s position has always been conciliatory and one of unity,” Morales said. “Guatemala wants to be part of the solution and not worsen the problem.” Facebook Comments Related posts:Guatemala’s Otto Pérez Molina dismisses ‘spurious’ corruption case Guatemala prosecutor confident President Pérez Molina will be removed from office, charged with graft PHOTOS: A look back at how Guatemalan citizens demanded justice – and won In Guatemala’s capital, little enthusiasm for country’s next president
Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Comments Share “It’ll make it a more dangerous play,” he said. “Almost every extra point this year, we did a safe defense, so we didn’t really rush because you’re not going to get there, the ball gets up too quick and the timing is too quick.“Now when it’s a field goal, now you’re rushing hard and you’ve got ten of the eleven guys really coming. If you move it back to a 38-yard field goal, that safe defense won’t happen anymore and you’re going to rush.”Feely says if he was in charge, he wouldn’t make any changes to the current extra point. “I don’t think I would, because here’s the thing, it’s really organic from the league office,” he said. “You didn’t hear a public outcry from the fans, ‘hey we need to change this play, it’s messing up the game, it’s a boring play,’ you didn’t hear that from coaches and players for sure, so really it was something at the league office for some reason that they wanted to make this an issue and they wanted to float the idea and see how the fans respond and how the public responds.“Because there wasn’t a public outcry and there really wasn’t anyone besides the league office that seemed like they needed to change that play, I don’t know why you would make that kind of big change in the game.” Top Stories Your browser does not support the audio element. While the latest proposal has received some support, not everyone is on board with such a drastic change. Take free agent kicker Jay Feely, for instance. The veteran kicker, who has hit 99.6 percent of his career extra points, doesn’t think the proposed change makes too much sense.“Obviously kickers aren’t going to like it,” Feely told Doug and Wolf Thursday on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. “If somebody told you your job is going to be twice as hard and there is no tangible benefit for you, you’re not going to be happy about it.”Feely does understand the other side of the argument, however.“Now I understand, somewhat, Roger Goodell’s point that it’s a play that’s a foregone conclusion — I think the last time I missed an extra point was ten years ago — they’re saying it’s a boring play,” Feely said. “My reasoning is that’s not really justification for making a dramatic change to the game and something that’s been part of the game and the history of the game since its infancy.”Feely says he’s heard from the NFL Competition Committee that the proposed extra point will actually be a 38-yard attempt and he believes that making the change will fly in the face of the push toward player safety the league has been responsible for. For a play deemed a formality by the National Football League, the extra point sure is getting talked about a lot this offseason.Last month, discussion swirled that the NFL was considering eliminating the point after touchdown, a play that was adopted in the early 1900s, because it has become automatic. Now, there is talk that the league is considering moving the line of scrimmage for a point after touchdown to the 25-yard line, making attempts 42 yards.

On January 5, 2011, it was time to say goodbye to the “Three Friends.” The sculpture was to be returned to John Waddell’s studio. The sculpture is extremely heavy and moving it required many people, sustained effort and coordination. January 7, 2011Most of Arcosanti’s public art on display is of course connected with Paolo Soleri and his work: windbells, ceramics, and silt designs. But there are examples of the work of other artists, including the large sculpture by John Waddell on display in the Colly Soleri Memorial Garden in front of the vaults. The sculpture is called “Three Friends,” or “Trilogy” and was moved to the Colly Garden in 2006 from John Waddell’s studio and sculpture garden in Cornville, AZ. The bronze grouping of three near-life-size nude figures is on a single base 87″ x 52″ x 26″.A favorite unofficial activity of workshop participants and residents has been to dress up the “naked bronze people” in appropriate holiday finery. [photo: Ron Chandler] After the “Three Friends” were wrestled into the back of a pick-up truck, they were on their way back home. We don’t usually treat out visitors this disrespectfully, but possibly we can be excused for this special case…John Waddell (b.1921) was raised in the Midwest and studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and had his first solo show in Peoria, Illinois at age 21. His formal education includes two M.F.A.’s in Fine Arts and Art Education. He and his wife, Ruth, a close partner in his professional as well as his personal life, moved to Arizona in 1957. Here he headed the art education department at Arizona State University (then Arizona State College) for several years. During this time Waddell made sculpture his primary art form. His sculptures are exhibited in many places in Phoenix, including the Unitarian Universalist Church on Lincoln Drive, the Civic Plaza and the Phoenix Art Museum. The Waddells have lived in the Verde Valley since 1970 and make frequent visits to the Grand Canyon, where they sketch and paint and help support the Grand Canyon Music Festival.See the October 27, 2006 report for information and photographs of the sculpture’s arrival at Arcosanti.
