Health and beauty maker KDC seeks expansion following 165M investment

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Health and beauty maker KDC seeks expansion following $165M investment by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Oct 22, 2014 2:18 pm MDT MONTREAL – The owners of a former Clairol hair colouring plant in Quebec plan to use an infusion of cash from a private equity firm and several institutional investors to double its size and solidify its role as an industry leader in health and beauty products.KDC (Knowlton Development Corp.), which makes products like deodorant, soaps and shampoos for blue chip clients such as Procter & Gamble, says the more than $165 million investment will support efforts to boost annual revenues to $1 billion by 2018.“We’re looking to do acquisitions in a global way,” said Michel Cote, KDC chairman and senior partner of private equity firm Novacap Industries.The first target will be other niche players in North America, followed by expansions possibly in Latin America, Europe or Asia.“Our customers are worldwide customers and they like to see us expanding our footprint to other regions,” he said in an interview.Novacap, a private equity firm with $1.5 billion under management, and several unidentified partners acquired KDC in 2002 from managers of the Clairol plant in Knowlton. The workers had bought the facility from Bristol-Myers after it shut the doors in 1991.Under KDC’s leadership, annual sales grew to $500 million from $60 million as more than $140 million was invested in new equipment, the size of the Knowlton plant was doubled and a $58-million production facility was added in Columbus, Ohio.Employment at the Eastern Townships headquarters increased to 900 from less than 300 as total KDC employment grew to about 2,200. KDC also operates a smaller facility with about 100 workers in Mississauga, Ont., and a large plant in Lynchburg, Va.Cote said sales initially dipped in 2002 to about $45 million as the new owners stopped making private label products and focused on becoming a top supplier to Fortune 500 companies that were looking to outsource production of their top brands.Initial efforts to attract the interest of large multinationals was a struggle. But he said the strategy eventually paid off with KDC becoming a large North American supplier to the health and beauty industry. He said it has strong double-digit market share in antiperspirants, skin care lotions, hair care products, shower gels, body washes and anti-bacterial soaps.About half of its revenues come from new formulations developed in-house.“We’re clearly the powerhouse in our segment and we’re the go-to place for our customer base,” Cote said. “So if somebody thinks of doing antiperspirant products they come to us.”Novacap says the new investment made with the support of the Caisse de depot, Quebec Solidarity Fund, Investissement Quebec, Export Development Canada and the CSN Fund will fuel KDC’s expansion efforts. About two-thirds of the growth is expected to come from acquisitions.Cote said it is eyeing several targets that could materialize over the next 12 months. It is also looking at adding new product segments, which he refused to identify. Among the largest holes in its portfolio are aerosols, an area that is led by Kik Custom Products (TSX:KCP.UN), an Ontario firm that went public in 2002 and has expanded to 11 manufacturing facilities.The investment in KCP was made through Novacap Industries IV fund, which currently has $300 million in commitments, including $80 million from the Caisse, the manager of Quebec’s public sector pension funds. Novacap expects the Industries IV fund to reach $425 million in a few months.Private equity firms typically invest in companies for only a few years. But Jacques Foisy, president and managing partner of Novacap Industries, said it has no plans to end its 12-year relationship with KDC.“We believe that KDC has enough potential to grow to the billion-dollar mark and still we will be able to sell it somebody who will bring it to the other level,” he said in an interview. “We’re in no rush to sell this jewel.”Christian Dube, executive vice-president for the Caisse de depot, said its investment reflects its efforts to “support Quebec companies in their development and their national and international expansion.”Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter read more

Brock President experts offer reaction to Orlando tragedy

The massacre of 49 people at a gay nightclub in Orlando early Sunday morning was an unthinkable tragedy that serves as a chilling reminder that homophobia still exists, says a Brock University professorJulian Kitchen, an associate professor in the Department of Teacher Education, says the killings prove there’s still a long way to go when it comes to equality.“This reminds us that the fight for rights and for acceptance isn’t over,” says Kitchen. “As a gay man, this creates feelings of vulnerability.”“It used to be an act of courage to go to or march in a (gay pride) parade. More recently it has become more of a celebration. I think this will add a certain amount of gravity to the celebrations this month.”As a Faculty of Education professor, Kitchen instructs future teachers on how to handle diversity issues in the classroom.“The best way to prevent big things like this is to address the little things,” he says, pointing to bullying issues like name-calling or shoving as things that lead to bigger problems.Another Brock associate professor, Angela Book, from the Department of Psychology, researches topics such as psychopathy and victim selection.She says the terrorist responsible for the attack in Orlando is a textbook narcissist.“The narcissism makes them think that they deserve to do this,” she says. “If they’re disenfranchised, one way they think they can get famous is by doing something like this.”Book is concerned that media coverage focusing on the shooter or highlighting that it was the deadliest attack ever will make others think they should do something similar — trying to beat the record in some sort of sick, psychotic contest.“It’s upsetting that they give so much attention to it and the person. They’re using headlines that only encourage copycats,” she said. “It’s definitely a danger.”Brock University President Jack Lightstone also issued a statement Monday morning cautioning against reprisals for the “reprehensible” massacre.“Over the weekend at a gay club in Orlando, Florida, 49 persons were shot to death and about 50 others were wounded when a gunman, self-proclaiming allegiance to the ‘Islamic State’ (IS), opened fire with an automatic assault weapon.“In the past it has been my practice to issue statements when shooting incidents have occurred in educational settings, on the campuses of sister institutions, however I feel compelled to also speak out in this instance.“This is the largest number of victims of any mass shooting in the United States (or Canada). That the victims apparently were targeted specifically due to their sexual orientation makes this act of violence all the more reprehensible, if murdering innocents were not reprehensible enough.“I should like to express my personal and Brock’s sympathies to the families of the victims and to the survivors. I also wish to state that any act of reprisal against our Muslim friends and neighbours would be equally reprehensible and cowardly. Bigotry is not the answer to bigotry. Rather we all need a society in which empathy is increasingly the norm.”— Jack Lightstone, President and Vice-Chancellor, Brock University read more

Arjen Robben and Robin van Persie were unstoppable as Oranje humiliated the reigning champions. It was a result few expected after 22 minutes when Diego Costa earned Spain a questionable penalty that Xabi Alonso converted. Van Persie, who netted twice, declared, “I don’t want us to be too excited, this is just one game and three points. We have to stick together and we have to improve.”The day started with Mexico eventually scoring a legitimate goal through Oribe Peralta, in rain-soaked Natal, to beat Cameroon 1-0. Miguel Herrara’s side were denied two first-half goals as Giovani Dos Santos was called offside twice [once incorrectly]. Eric Choupo-Moting also had one chalked off for Cameroon who earned little bonus money from their sagging display.In Pool B’s other game, Barcelona attacker Alexis Sanchez scored Chile’s opener and teed up Jorge Valdivia for a second before Tim Cahill’s towering header reduced the deficit before half-time. The Socceroos pushed hard after the break but a Jean Beausejour goal made the game safe at 3-1 near the death.WinnerArjen Robben – The Dutch midfielder missed a one-on-one, which was saved by Iker Casillas, in the 2010 final against Spain.

Namco Museum Collection Comes to the Nintendo Switch eShop Today

first_imgStay on target The Nintendo Switch is about to get another shot of retro love when the Namco Museum Collection releases tomorrow. This compilation features 11 of Namco’s classic arcade titles that users can play at home or on the go. In anticipation of the release, Namco has released a new trailer that should bring back fond memories for many gamers.For the most part, these are the same games everyone remembers. To make things more interesting, each of the titles in this collection (minus PAC-MAN VS.) will support an online ranking system. This means that you can compare your high scores to those of players from around the world. Think of it as a global arcade of sorts. That right there is a pretty sweet feature.The Namco Museum Collection has been released on many different platforms over the years. Most of them have been identical, but the Switch version allows for something other systems are incapable of. Users can play this game with the Switch turned vertically. This may sound weird, but you have to remember that many of these arcade games were played on screens that were tall and slim. The fact Switch can replicate that unique arcade aspect ratio makes this version a cut above previous iterations.While the Switch is still lacking a Virtual Console store, it still has an impressive number of retro titles. Playing old-school games on a handheld just feels right, so the Namco Museum Collection will be a perfect fit for Nintendo’s console/handheld hybrid. Personally, I want to see what it’s like to play these games with the Switch turned vertically. That should be a pretty sweet experience.The Namco Museum Collection is available on the Nintendo Switch eShop for $29.99. You can also get the game for free if you by the WaterField Designs MultiPlayer Pro Switch Case. There is a good deal of Nintendo Switch cases to choose from, but the Waterfield case is definitely a cut above the rest. If you’re in the market for a Switch case, then it’s certainly worth buying.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. ‘Game of Thrones’ Recreated in 300-Foot Embroidered TapestryPop-Up NYC Museum Highlights Burden of Single-Use Plastics last_img read more

Armed subject at large after policeinvolved shooting in SW MiamiDade

first_imgSOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) – An armed subject remains at large, Friday afternoon, after a police-involved shooting took place in Southwest Miami-Dade.According to Miami-Dade Police, the shooting took place at around 2:15 a.m., near Southwest 80th Street and 76th Avenue. The incident began with what police said was a routine traffic stop.According to officials, a Toyota Camry then sped past the traffic stop at a high-rate of speed. Police went after the Camry and asked the driver to pull over at a nearby shopping center, past U.S. 1, just south of 80th Street.The driver failed to heed the order and continued to flee until crashing shortly afterwards.As police officers approached the damaged vehicle, the driver suddenly exited through the passenger’s side, visibly holding a gun.This is what police said prompted an officer to open fire at the subject. However, as of noon, it remains unclear whether the subject was struck.The subject then fled the scene and remains at large. He is considered armed and dangerous. Police describe the subject as a man who stands between 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet tall. He has short hair and a heavy build. He wore a light-colored shirt with dark pants and may be between the ages of 25 and 35 years old.“We do suggest that the community remains vigilant,” said a Miami-Dade Police officer. “Anybody that they see suspicious matching the description, give us a call. It doesn’t hurt for us to respond and conduct an investigation and check that person out.”The subject’s vehicle was towed away from the scene.The southbound and northbound lanes of the Palmetto Expressway between Dixie Highway and Sunset Drive have since reopened after being closed due to the police perimeter set up to find the subject, which proved to be fruitless.If you have any information on this armed subject, call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS. Remember, you can always remain anonymous, and you may be eligible for a $1,000 reward.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.

Weather Service Ends Manual Readings Of Mendenhall River Level

first_imgHydrologist Aaron Jacobs takes the final Mendenhall River reading of 2014 in November.(Photo courtesy National Weather Service)The National Weather Service is changing the way it forecasts the water level in Juneau’s Mendenhall River.The agency said Friday that it has stopped taking manual readings of the river level at the Mendenhall Loop Bridge. Instead, river level observations and flood forecasts will be based on an automated gauge located in Mendenhall Lake.“We found that during the last couple jökulhlaups, especially at extreme high conditions, that the correlation between the lake and the river readings wasn’t so close anymore,” says Tom Ainsworth, meteorologist in charge at the National Weather Service in Juneau.Jökulhlaup is an Icelandic term for a glacier outburst flood. Every summer since 2011, water from a basin located near the Mendenhall Glacier has drained,causing the lake and river to flood. When that happens, residents along the river rely on the weather service to provide them with flood warnings.Ainsworth says there’s usually a strong correlation between the automated gauge located at the lake and the manual gauge at the Mendenhall Loop Bridge, except during those big floods.“It’s hard to manually measure the river level when it’s really ripping,” Ainsworth says. “You’ve probably seen it during those last couple jökulhlaups out there. You know, it’s high, big waves, the instrument hits a wave crest and it starts swaying. So, it’s just not as accurate.”He says using the lake gauge to predict how high the water will be downstream at the bridge should provide property owners near the river with more precise information. The lake level can be found on the weather service website, along with information about what happens to the river level at various stages of lake flooding.Ainsworth says the weather service has already informed residents near the river of the change, as well as tour companies that offer Mendenhall River rafting trips.last_img read more

UPDATE US Withdraws From Historic Paris Climate Agreement Mayors Say They Will

first_img “This agreement is less about the climate and more about other countries obtaining a financial advantage over the United States”, Trump said. The agreement, the president said, gives “countries an economic edge over the United States,” adding, “that’s not going to happen while I’m president.” He added that he is seeking to create a “level playing field” and establish the “highest standard of living, highest standard of environmental protection.”And, he stressed: “I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris.”National reactionsThe announcement fulfills one of Trump’s top campaign pledges. But it also undermines world efforts to combat global warming.The U.S. had agreed under former President Barack Obama to reduce emissions to 26 percent to 28 percent of 2005 levels by 2025 — about 1.6 billion tons.Obama said right after the announcement that the Trump administration is joining “a small handful of nations that reject the future” by withdrawing from the Paris climate change pact. APPresident Donald Trump speaks about the U.S. role in the Paris climate change accord, Thursday, June 1, 2017, in the Rose Garden of the White House in Washington. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)The United States will no longer be part of the landmark 190-nation agreement to reduce earth-warming gases,  but will begin negotiations to re-enter the agreement, President Donald Trump announced Thursday at the White House.“We are getting out but we will start to negotiate and see if we can make a deal that’s fair”, Trump said, as he highlighted that although the U.S.  is pulling out from the agreement, the country will look to modify the accord to re-enter it. The president said that the nation would stop adhering to the emissions reductions standards immediately. The agreement was nonbinding. Trump painted the original deal as “unfair” to American workers and taxpayers, suggesting that other countries had more favorable agreements.Meanwhile, the U.S. Conference of Mayors said it strongly opposes Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris  accord and vowed that the nation’s mayors will continue efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions blamed for global warming. Houston is one of the cities sticking to the climate accord, Mayor Sylvester Turner said.  Only few hours after the president’s announcement, Turner confirmed that Houston has joined over 60 so-called climate mayors from across the U.S. in vowing to honor the Paris Agreement’s goals to fight climate change. “Cities are front and center in the fight against climate change and we have to take action.  We must not let the President’s decision today slow our efforts.  As the energy capital of the world and the nation’s largest municipal purchaser of green power, Houston is leading by example and living proof that large, industrial cities can have a robust economy and also fight climate change”, Turner said in a statement. The mayors had previously released a statement immediately after the news stressing that the U.S. and other nations need to address climate change to become energy independent, self-reliant and resilient.New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, the group’s vice president, called climate change a grave threat to coastal communities, the nation and the world. He said that if unchecked, sea-level rise caused by climate change could mean that New Orleans and other coastal cities “will cease to exist.”Landrieu said withdrawal from the Paris agreement “is shortsighted and will be devastating to Americans in the long run.” Steve Adler, the mayor of Austin, said his city won’t stop fighting climate change.The Paris agreement, considered the framework convention on climate change, requires that all parties report regularly on their emissions and on their implementation efforts. It entered into force on 4 November 2016, 30 days after the date on which at least 55 countries accounting in total for at least an estimated 55  per cent of the total global greenhouse gas emissions signed in. .@realDonaldTrump, you’re leaving a dark legacy just to satisfy your greediness. Today, you’ve surrendered the hopes and future of a nation.— Vicente Fox Quesada (@VicenteFoxQue) June 1, 2017He accused Trump of “leaving a dark legacy just to satisfy your greediness” and surrendering the nation’s future.Fox concludes: “United States has stopped being the leader of the free world. @realDonaldTrump, single handed, took care of that.”The European Union’s top climate change official also reacted to say that Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris accord makes it “a sad day for the global community.”The EU’s climate action commissioner, Miguel Arias Cañete , said in a statement Thursday that the bloc “deeply regrets the unilateral decision by the Trump administration.”Canete says the 2015 accord is “ambitious yet not prescriptive.”The #ParisAgreement will endure. The world can continue to count on Europe for global leadership in the fight against climate change.— Miguel Arias Cañete (@MAC_europa) June 1, 2017He says the agreement will endure, and he pledged that “the world can continue to count on Europe for global leadership.”Canete also predicted that the EU would seek new alliances from the world’s largest economies to the most vulnerable island states, as well as U.S. businesses and individuals supportive of the accord.He added: “We are on the right side of history.” Share In a separate statement, mayors of the world’s megacities also committed to addressing climate change despite the U.S. move. The mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo, said climate change “poses a unique threat to the future of our planet, and puts in peril the health, prosperity, security and the very survival of our children and grandchildren.” Hidalgo said she’s urging the Trump administration to reconsider the decision.Former Vice President Al Gore, who has been extremely active on educating about climate change in the last decade, called the decision to exit the Paris agreement “a reckless and indefensible action.”Gore said the move “undermines America’s standing in the world.” He released the statement as President Donald Trump was speaking at the White House Rose Garden.My statement on Today’s Decision by the Trump Administration to Withdraw from the Paris Agreement:— Al Gore (@algore) June 1, 2017The former vice president has defined his postgovernment life as a climate champion. He urges mayors, governors and the business community to take up where Trump is leaving off, especially by focusing on clean energy.Gore says: “We are in the middle of a clean energy revolution that no single person or group can stop. President Trump’s decision is profoundly in conflict with what the majority of Americans want from our president.”International reactionsFormer Mexican President Vicente Fox  harshly criticized President Trump for withdrawing the United States from the Paris climate agreement.Fox has clashed with Trump since last year’s presidential campaign, and he let loose Thursday with a series of tweets saying the decision “condemns this generation and those to come.”Fox tweets of Trump: “He’s declaring war on the planet itself.”Withdrawal from #ParisAgreement, @realDonaldTrump condemns this generation and those to come.

first_imgFanangoNow was one of the first digital retailers to offer 4K content — back in 2014, when the service was called M-Go, a joint venture of DreamWorks Animation and Technicolor, before Fandango acquired M-Go in 2016. Today, FandangoNow claims to be the leading retailer of 4K movies, with more than 20% of transactions for 4K versions when that format is available.FandangoNow offers more than 80,000 new-release and catalog movies and TV shows for rent or purchase, including almost 1,000 titles in 4K. The service competes with the likes of Apple’s iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play and Walmart’s Vudu. In addition to the FandangoNow partnership, Imax announced deals with China’s Tencent Video and Rakuten TV for Europe to stream Imax Enhanced content to certified devices beginning in 2019.“This feels like a game-changer,” said Cameron Douglas, Fandango’s VP of home entertainment. “I see it as a differentiator for us, for people looking for the best 4K content.”Douglas said Imax Enhanced content, when viewed on compatible HDTVs, is like “HDR on steroids,” referring to High Dynamic Range, a spec that dramatically expands contrast levels and color palette of video.Imax Enhanced represents a new rival for Dolby Laboratories’ Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos enhanced video and audio technologies. FandangoNow doesn’t support content in Dolby Vision, which is available through services including Apple iTunes, Netflix, Amazon and Vudu.A feature of Imax Enhanced is that it lets content owners control technical aspects of how their works are played back on TVs and audio equipment — ideally, as close as possible to the filmmaker intended. That includes establishing a preset “Imax mode” on the devices, which may include disabling the “motion smoothing” on HDTVs (a controversial feature decried by Tom Cruise and others). In addition, Imax Enhanced titles that were shot with Imax cameras or specially formatted for Imax theaters also will include an expanded aspect ratio for the film’s home release.Terms of Fandango’s pact for Imax Enhanced weren’t disclosed; it’s not clear whether money is changing hands among the parties. Under the promotional pact, FandangoNow is the exclusive U.S. transactional VOD service for Imax Enhanced titles.Companies that have signed on to the Imax Enhanced initiative, announced in September 2018 in partnership with Xperi’s DTS, include Sony Electronics, Sony Pictures, Paramount Pictures and Sound United, whose home-entertainment brands include Denon and Marantz.Other device partners for Imax Enhanced include Arcam, Elite, Integra, Lexicon, Onkyo, Pioneer, TCL and Trinnov, with products expected to go on sale in select regions beginning in 2019. Fandango’s FandangoNow will become the first U.S. digital retailer to sell Imax Enhanced films released to home video, expected beginning in the second quarter of 2019 on Sony’s Bravia TVs.Imax Enhanced establishes specs for content producers and consumer-electronics makers for Imax’s digitally remastered 4K HDR and DTS audio content — a proprietary encoding layer on top of the industry standards that Imax and its partners claim delivers unparalleled sound and video quality.The first Imax Enhanced movies coming to FandangoNow are set to include Sony Pictures/Marvel’s “Venom” and Sony/Studio 8’s “Alpha,” as well as more than 100 Imax documentary feature titles. Additionally, Paramount Pictures will launch its first Imax Enhanced titles in 2019. FandangoNow will sell the Imax Enhanced titles for the same price as 4K Ultra HD versions. The announcement was timed for CES 2019. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Deputies Pull More Than 50 Electric Scooters Bikes From Oregon River

first_img EV Platform Shoves Everything But the Battery Inside the WheelAdditive Breakthrough Makes EV Batteries Suck Less in the Cold Stay on target A sheriff’s office in Oregon had one unusual “fishing” expedition.The Multonomah County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday that the department’s dive team hauled 57 electric scooters and bicycles within a period of two days out of Willamette River in Portland.MCSO’s Dive Team used their training days to go hunting.Here is the haul: 57 scooters/bikes in 2 days!The whole team did a great job removing these from our waterways!— Multnomah Co Sheriff (@MultCoSO) June 26, 2019The dive team recovered the vehicles while cleaning the river sea wall.“The team had to quit early because they needed a bigger boat!” the sheriff’s office said in a post on Twitter.The e-scooters were from Lime, Bird, and the haul included at least one of the seated Razor scooters, according to the Oregonian. The bicycles appeared to be from local bike-sharing system Biketown.California-based Razor just joined Portland’s year-long pilot program last week.The team had to quit early because they needed a bigger boat!— Multnomah Co Sheriff (@MultCoSO) June 26, 2019Five companies have put nearly 2,000 e-scooters on the city’s streets, and not everyone is happy about it.KGW-TV in Portland reported last year that a since-deleted Instagram account even posted videos of people tossing e-scooters off bridges and into the Willamette River.The count is now at 9.— Multnomah Co Sheriff (@MultCoSO) June 25, 2019MCSO Sgt. Brandon White told the Oregonian there was concern from the sheriff’s divers the batteries from the scooters could leak into the river. The river patrol and dive team first noticed the scooters last month.“We advise those people not to park scooters in the river,” White said.Sergeant Dangler says the lights are still working on this It was recovered from the bottom of the Willamette River today!I wonder if it will still run?!— Multnomah Co Sheriff (@MultCoSO) June 25, 2019Many of the scooters appeared to be rusted, but the sheriff’s office said the lights on one were still working.More on Clever Seat Post Is Also a Bike LockWorld’s First Five-Seater Electric Air Taxi Completes Test FlightHarley-Davidson’s All-Electric Motorcycle Is Now Available for Preoderlast_img read more

Opposition parties search for 2014 presidential candidate

first_imgNo related posts. Leaders of seven opposition parties are considering the possibility of choosing a single candidate to face San José Mayor Johnny Araya of the ruling National Liberation Party (PLN) in next year’s presidential elections.The group includes the National Union Party, United Cartago Coalition, Costa Rican Renovation Party, Libertarian Movement, Social Christian Unity Party, Cantonal Desamparadeño Party and National Integration for Freedom Party.Representatives of these groups will meet Friday to define a working plan, the potential cost of a nomination process and a possible working schedule.The candidate that would face Araya would be nominated in a single national primary election among candidates from all seven parties in August.Also on Friday candidates of the Citizen Action Party, Juan Carlos Mendoza and Claudio Monge, will meet with Social Christian Unity Party candidates Roberto Suñol and Pedro Muñoz. They will discuss common issues with the goal of joining forces.Araya on Wednesday became the sole candidate in the presidential race for the PLN after the last of his party’s candidates, former Minister Fernando Berrocal, quit and announced his support of Araya.Last Friday, Rodrigo Arias – a former minister in the administration of his brother, ex-President Oscar Arias – also quit the presidential race in the PLN.

Art city tour enlivens downtown San José

first_imgAt the Gold Museum, a temporary exhibit focuses on the five feline species found in Costa Rica and how they are represented in pre-Columbian artwork. Visitors are encouraged to try on the indigenous masks. Wednesday night just after 5 p.m., scores of patrons made a pilgrimage to La Sabana’s Costa Rican Art Museum for the first stop on the Art City Tour, a citywide gallery crawl in downtown San José. Most guests appeared to be teenaged girls, dressed in heels and eye shadow and patterned scarves. Others were young men in skinny jeans, looking like misplaced skater punks. But they took their time with the art, circling respectfully around each room and giving each canvas due attention.“This one is interesting,” said one twenty-something girl to another, as they stood in front of Pedro Arrieta’s abstract landscape of a ladder on a scarlet background. “It reminds me of a hacienda, or maybe a swimming pool.” They chuckled at the title (“Sin Titulo”) and moved on.Organized by GAM Cultural, the Art City Tour is designed to showcase the arts and culture in San José — for free. Not only could patrons enter upscale museums without spending a single colón, they could also hop aboard a complementary shuttle and ride from gallery to museum to arts center in minutes. In a city much disparaged by tourists and Ticos alike, this open house — held every two months — reminds residents just how creative and dynamic their capital can be. Andrés Madrigal No related posts. For most people, the Costa Rican Art Museum was only one stop along the way, but it packed a lot of activity: Paintings adorned the walls, sculptures were lit up in the back patio, and toward 6 p.m., a pair of performance artists darted around the rooms wearing animal masks and handing out secret messages. Patrons whipped out iPhones and photographed themselves in front of the artwork. The highlight was Arrieta’s “Cógito de Pasión” (“Contemplation of passion”), a mural of graffiti that covered an entire wall. Guests also were encouraged to take pencils to the wall and scrawl whatever they were contemplating. Andrés Madrigal In the Costa Rican Art Museum’s Salón Dorado (Gold Room), this bass relief mural depicts the history of Costa Rica. A temporary art exhibition at Costa Rica’s National Museum, which is housed in old military barracks.center_img A full 24 venues participated in the event, even hallowed institutions like the National and Jade Museums, which usually charge admission fees. As hundreds of patrons took to the streets, crowding into shuttles and flooding art galleries, their youthfulness was noticeable: Instead of retirees and tourists, the vast majority were Tico, college-aged, and traveling in couples and packs. Docents sold event pins for ₡1,000 ($2), and outside the National Museum, a pair of clowns performed for an enthusiastic crowd.At the Gold Museum, visitors surveyed exhibits of gold jewelry and indigenous stone sculpture. Tucked into an underground concrete superstructure beneath the Plaza de la Cultura, the Gold Museum is one of those cultural touchstones that locals rarely trifle with. But last night the place was packed; people of all ages and fashions meandered the exhibits, murmuring remarks.  “I heard about [the Art City Tour] from the Carpe Chepe tour,” said Laura Ku, 26, of San Francisco, California. Ku recently lost her job, decided to travel Latin America, and bought the cheapest ticket she could find — to San José. The Carpe Chepe tour is a dress-casual pub-crawl for young socialites.“It’s very, very fortunate that we just happened to be here at this time,” said her friend, Linda Tsan, also 26. “I love museums, and I’m always telling other people about free museum tours. We’ll probably leave here and visit the Jade Museum next.”“We will?” said Ku, raising an eyebrow. “Yes,” said Tsan. “That’s why I’m the museum person.” Andrés Madrigal A temporary exhibit in which patrons were invited to draw, paint and write on the wall.

Senate Democrats Respond to Senate Budget Amendments

first_img Senate Democrats are firing back at Republicans accusing them of trying to undermine financial regulators after amendments to the Senate budget were introduced to regulate the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), according to The Hill. The budget amendments, introduced by Sen. David Perdue (R-Georgia) seek to tackle what he calls a “reckless” agency.The Hill reports, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) said the GOP had put financial protections “in the center of the bull’s-eye” with their new budget proposal.“A budget resolution is a statement of values, and the Republicans have put their values on display,” she said Wednesday. “Republicans … want to end the protections for American families and make it easier for Wall Street to rip them off.”Warren, joined by Sens. Jeff Merkley (D-Oregon) and Al Franken (D-Minnesota), criticized the GOP budget Wednesday, targeting particular ire at a provision that calls for lawmakers to set the funding levels for the CFPB.But Republicans have long contended that the CFPB should see its budget set by lawmakers, and the failure to do so has made it unaccountable.”The CFPB is completely unaccountable,” said Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.). “It’s frankly outrageous that they are able to operate with a budget and the latitude they have without having to come to Congress for this oversight.”The Senate is set to vote on its budget Thursday, after which they will attempt to reconcile that version with a House blueprint set to receive a vote Wednesday.The Democratic press conference was the latest volley in a long-running partisan feud over the CFPB, which was created as part of the Dodd-Frank financial reform law. Republicans have long argued the agency lacks accountability and oversight from Congress, and has pushed proposals to bring it under closer scrutiny. Besides subjecting it to appropriations, Republicans have also pushed to replace its director with a bipartisan board and make it easier for other financial regulators to veto its initiatives.But Democrats have staunchly opposed all efforts to alter the agency, and that debate has not gotten any less heated with the 2013 arrival of Warren, who previously worked with President Obama to establish the agency.The budget proposal does not carry any legal weight, but rather is seen as more of a negotiating position for the two parties when it comes to spending and other policy debates that will come down the road. Furthermore, Republicans only need 51 votes in the Senate to advance the budget, whereas they would need 60 to actually advance tangible policy changes.(Reporting by Peter Schroeder) in Daily Dose, Featured, Government Senate Democrats Respond to Senate Budget Amendments CFPB Elizabeth Warren GOP budget 2015-03-26 Samantha Guzmancenter_img Share March 26, 2015 525 Views last_img read more

London UK – Reported by Elite Traveler the Pri

first_imgLondon, U.K. – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle MagazineIf there was anyone, watchmaker or watch enthusiast who wanted to attend a dinner, it was the one organised to honour George Daniels on Thursday, June 24, 2010 at the Lanesborough Hotel in London. The dinner was hosted to celebrate the extensive achievements, innovation and expertise George Daniels brought to the watch world.This exclusive and memorable dinner was organised by F.P.Journe’s long time London partners John and William Asprey, (William & Son, our UK agent) during which François-Paul Journe was honouring his long time friend and mentor George Daniels, one of the foremost watchmakers of the 20th century, who gave him the creative inspiration that has significantly stirred his horological career.F.P.Journe declared: “Without George Daniels, I would most certainly never have stared to make my first watch: George is definitely the foremost watchmakers of this 20th Century. It was in 1969, when the mechanical watch industry was dethroned by the arrival of quartz, that you started making your first watch. You were the pioneer; the first watchmaker who showed us the path to horology of Art, a non-utilitarian horology. The rest proved you were right, Swiss horology was back from the ashes in constructing watches of Art and ceremonial timepieces; the landscape repopulated in two decades.You have opened the main door of contemporary horology and showed us the path back to authentic watchmaking with innovation sense, in the respect of the grand horological tradition of our great watch masters. He opened the main door; I could only follow in opening others. But the most difficult to open was definitely the first one. George I am proud to be your friend and I wish to thank you immensely for all the incentive and inspiration you brought me, and I could only hope there would be more watchmakers like us making real horology.”François-Paul Journe then presented a thoughtful homage timekeeper to George Daniels, a Chronomètre Souverain of his collection, especially made for him and dedicated on the bridge of the movement: FP to George Daniels my Mentor 2010.The evening gathered some of the most prominent faces of the horological scene, who had a serious implication in bringing back the long gone memories of the great watch masters: independent master watchmakers and some of George Daniels’ intimate friends.Dr George Daniels, Master Watchmaker – Roger Smith, Master Watchmaker, former pupil of George Daniels – Jonathan Betts, Senior Watch specialist at the Royal Observatory of Greenwich – Tina Millar, Former Head of the Watch Division at Sotheby’s – John and William Asprey, William & Son – Sebastian Whitestone and Andrew Crisford, Bobinet – a few privileged watch collectors such as Stephen Luk, Anthony Kingsley, David Sitwell or David Newman, the editor of QP Magazine James Gurney and of course, François-Paul Journe.www.fpjourne.comlast_img read more
