first_imgFrom the print editionA party of seven gastronomy connoisseurs who take great pleasure in eating, but also in the surroundings and service that come with it, recently took lunch at Sabor y Arte in Central Escazú. Housed in what looks like a restored home – the cream-colored restaurant is actually brand new, equipped with wood paneling, plenty of windows and a welcoming front porch.Entering the downstairs chamber, we were greeted with an elegant indoor dining room and dark wood furnishings, enhanced by cream and dark green linens. In contrast, the glassed-in patio with light green fabrics overlooked a manicured garden – a cool spot for either lunch or dinner. Upstairs, the lounge and bar serve finger food plus a full menu and offer a combination of comfort and luxury. The bar is decorated in warm shades of brown with bar stools, comfy armchairs, sofas and heavy velvet curtains, plus replicas of French Provincial furniture. The VIP lounge, with its own kitchen, accommodates 25 guests for private events. Throughout the restaurant, an eclectic collection of mostly unidentified art covers the walls. At the rear of the garden, there’s an unfinished art gallery with a collection of David Cedeño’s work.Lunch was a bit of a hit-and-miss affair, and one of our group suggested that Sabor y Arte should be given more time to iron out the teething problems before being reviewed. I disagreed, as I had spoken to the charming Venezuelan owner, Andreina Ramos, and she said the place had been open 11 months. Therefore, I felt the problems indicated a need for improvement in some areas.For example, it took 20 minutes for three beers, three fruit drinks and a glass of house wine to arrive. The Chilean Bouchon Chardonnay was pleasant enough, but gone in a few sips, as it only half-filled an extremely small glass. The waiters poured beer with three quarters foam, and then left the can on the table among elegant place settings. Our young waiters were charming and trying very hard, but they need more training.The menu offered a choice of starters, including fusion dishes as well as Italian, Spanish, French and Pacific Rim, all served with an array of local fruits and veggies.We ordered the melted Brie on a bed of lettuce dressed with grapes, walnuts and fruity vinaigrette, but unfortunately the cheese was rather bland. The Portobello mushrooms stuffed with mozzarella and crowned with caramelized onions were mouth-watering. The prosciutto served with green apple, macadamia praliné and gorgonzola vinaigrette was very good, as was the tuna tataki, but the liver paté was totally tasteless. The salad greens served with the dishes above are all organic. The main courses had their ups and downs. The big complaint was we weren’t told that the Flambé menu was only available in the evening. We saw the station where specialist Flambé Chef Sergio Maritano creates his works of culinary art. Two of our party ordered the steak Woronoff flambé with cognac, white wine and Dijon mustard. The fish flambé with vodka was smothered with fresh tomato, olives and capers. We were surprised when they appeared already cooked from the kitchen. The steaks were very tender and cooked to order, and the fish was delicious, but we were let down that we hadn’t been told the truth about the Flambé situation. The corvina (sea bass) was cooked to perfection, moist and flaky, but the ravioli stuffed with cas pesto was very strange and didn’t have the fruit’s typically tangy flavor.The paella was disappointing and bland, requiring hot pepper sauce to cheer it up. The Corderito Borracho (drunken lamb) must have been too inebriated to make it to the kitchen. A shredded dollop of mystery meat that didn’t taste the slightest bit like lamb was enjoyed by the diners’ dog, although he couldn’t face the heap of mashed green plantains that the drunken whatever-it-was sat on. The rosemary potatoes were the only tasty item in this pricy disaster.The coffee, chocolate mousse and cheesecake were very good, but trying to pay the bill at the cash register was interminable. Maybe  we should have asked for separate checks?Prices including tax: range from ₡3,900-7,800 ($8-16) for starters and ₡10,000-14,800 ($20-30) for main courses.

first_imgUber’s questionable legal standing in Costa Rica may soon reach a resolution.The country’s Executive Branch on Tuesday proposed a law that will allow “taxi drivers and services such as Uber to coexist simultaneously, under fair conditions of competition,” according to a press release from the Public Works and Transport Ministry (MOPT).“Our commitment is to progress in a system where taxis and transportation technology platforms can coexist under conditions of fair competition,” said President Carlos Alvarado.“It is an issue that as a country we have postponed for many years, and it was time to make decisions about it.”The bill would designate transportation platform companies such as Uber as public services. The companies would have to register with the Public Transportation Council and enact policies promoting rider safety.Services such as Uber would be subject to a value-added tax of 13 percent. The proposal also says companies that “operated prior to the enactment of this law” would have to pay a registration fee of nearly $13,800,000, which would be earmarked to fund modernizations to Costa Rica’s public-transportation systems, including taxis.Uber did not immediately return a request for comment, but in a September 2018 open letter to the government, the company said that “since our first day of operations in Costa Rica, Uber has sought to be part of the country’s development and to improve transportation options for Costa Ricans.”[UPDATE: Read Uber’s response to the proposed law here.] Taxi drivers have staged repeated protests against ride-hailing services since Uber launched operations in Costa Rica in August 2015. Uber drivers have continued to offer rides, though they often do so surreptitiously to avoid hefty fines from the Public Services Regulatory Authority (ARESEP).

first_imgResidents of the house quickly contacted Public Safety to get help in removing the reptile. Local snake removal experts were called to the scene, with Eugene Jonck doing his very best to find the snake and safely remove it from the premises.However, his attempts were in vain, as the snake appeared to have already slithered away. The entire room in which it was first seen was searched, and even the outside of the house, to make sure the snake was not in the immediate area.By this time, Public Safety Officer OJ Maritz had responded to aid in the search for the elusive snake.Every nook and cranny was searched, but the snake seemed to have disappeared into thin air.The residents heaved a sigh of relief that the scary serpent was no longer in their home, where it could possibly harm their children or themselves. The screams of a domestic worker echoed through Calendula Avenue this morning (Tuesday) as she ran out of a house after spotting a snake under a bedThe domestic worker was carrying out her daily routine and was picking up a bed to clean under it when she came face-to-face with a snake that was “short, thick and had big red eyes”.Terrified, she stopped dead in her tracks and then bolted out of the room.

first_img How men can have a healthy 2019 Sponsored Stories Comments   Share   WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama welcomed Nigeria’s new president to the Oval Office on Monday and praised him for working to bring “safety, security and peace” to a nation challenged by economic strains, a history of corruption and violence unleashed by the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram.Obama met with President Muhammadu Buhari less than eight weeks after Buhari took office to underscore the importance the U.S. attaches to good relations with Nigeria. Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility The president said Buhari had “a very clear agenda in defeating Boko Haram and extremists of all sorts inside of his country. And he has a very clear agenda in terms of rooting out the corruption that too often has held back the economic growth and prosperity of his country.”Obama, speaking to reporters at the outset of the meeting, said the U.S. hoped to partner with the African nation “so that Nigeria ends up being not only an anchor of prosperity and stability in the eastern part of the continent, but can also be an outstanding role model for developing countries around the world.”He said he would discuss with Buhari how the two nations can cooperate on counter-terrorism and how the U.S. “can be helpful in addressing some of the corruption issues that have held Nigeria back.”Buhari, for his part, said Nigeria would be “ever grateful” to the U.S. for its support of free elections in his country. Buhari said U.S. and European pressures to ensure the election was “fair and credible led us to where we are now.”U.S. relations with Nigeria soured over failures by the government and military, including the inability to locate more than 200 school girls, most of them Christian, who were kidnapped by Boko Haram from the northern town of Chibok in April 2014. The abduction led to international condemnation and a campaign to “Bring Back Our Girls” that reached as far as the White House. Then-President Goodluck Jonathan was angered by the U.S. refusal to sell his government helicopter gunships and retaliated by halting a U.S. military training program.Relations are now expected to improve under Buhari, a 72-year-old former military dictator who has pledged allegiance to democracy and promised to address U.S. concerns.Obama extended his invitation for a visit to Buhari almost immediately after he was declared the winner of the March election.“This feels to us like Nigeria is at an important moment in which there can be real reforms across the board,” Grant Harris, the senior director for African affairs at the National Security Council, told reporters last week. “We’re looking forward to what we can do with a president who has staked out an agenda that we think is the right agenda at the right time.”Nigeria’s new leader has been criticized for being slow to form a Cabinet. He has yet to name any ministers.Last week, Buhari fired the entire top echelon of the military, which he has accused of corruption that prevents what once was Africa’s mightiest armed force from curbing the Islamist insurgency based in Nigeria’s northeast. The insurgency has killed more than 13,000 people and driven another 1.5 million from their homes.center_img Check your body, save your life New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Top Stories Besides the Oval Office meeting with Obama, Buhari is to meet with Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry and other senior administration officials.___Follow Darlene Superville on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/dsupervilleapCopyright © The Associated Press.

first_imgFor the first 24 hours after I post on artnet News, I shut down all communication devices—”paranoiac” or “delusional” are not the words after I’ve suffered physical intimidation, verbal abuse, and, worse, legal threats from the fallout of columns past. But to date, for better or worse, I’ve managed to remain unscathed. I’ve been close to quitting, throwing in the towel, as I do this all but for free (artnet, time for a raise?) and the upside is difficult to gauge.That was then, but now there’s been another slate of auctions for me to cover. Sorry—I couldn’t help myself from weighing in before the art world goes on summer break. But don’t worry, just like the recent London auctions, this roundup will be short and sweet(ish).When I first moved to the UK in 2004 there was talk of London superseding New York as the world’s auction capital, the momentum was thick in the air, and the city was bursting (and bustling) with opportunity and optimism. Yet the fall of the city’s art scene over the 15 years since has been nothing short of precipitous, I got out just in time. London’s violent petty street crime alone is hair-raising enough, and that’s before you get to the political turmoil, which would be laughable if it weren’t so sad, and entirely self-wrought.The reasons why you’d choose to sell in London (consider it auction lite) are manifold, from the obvious death, divorce, and debt—the art market is teeming with it, more than ever—to the appeal of trying to be a big fish in a little pond (or puddle, more like), garnering more attention on your artworks. Sometimes, such a strategy succeeds, as was the case with the work of several white-hot young black artists; more often than not, not. Before I dip into the (exceedingly) shallow waters of the contemporary sales, there are a few general matters at hand to discuss.First, I found a solution for the mid-sized gallery crunch, though you may not be too amused: close them all! There should only be three galleries remaining, a high-stakes battle between behemoths with Larry G. vs. David Z. vs. Ivan the Terrible (I’m playing). Case in point? Aspiring market darling Avery Singer, Wikipedia-described as “an American artist (born 1987) known for paintings created through 3D modeling software and computer-controlled airbrushing.” Where can I get a robotic paintbrush? Avery’s meteoric auction prices went from $36,000 in 2017 to $735,000 a year later, for a painting bought by Gagosian, no less. (He may want to check the condition on that one.)Columnist Beware! Me after my next artnet column if I’m not careful…. Photo illustration courtesy of Kenny Schachter.And now, as the three little pigs—just kidding… they are far from little, and I love and respect them all—jostle to represent Singer after the artist recently left her primary dealer Gavin Brown (who just had one of his top salesman poached by Zwirner to boot), Larry has repeatedly shown up to her studio unannounced, while David has relentlessly courted her and Ivan has tried to trump (take that as you may) them all by sending her a private jet. I don’t even get a subway token to Sotheby’s. Speaking of which, let’s see how they fare in the fall when Avery finally makes up her mind.Adam Chinn, the former Sotheby’s chief operating officer who was made redundant and assumed a position with the Mugrabis (yikes, can’t see that lasting too long), was recently called upon to lend his counsel to subsequent, unnamed bidders who may or may not appear on the horizon to out-do Patrick Drahi’s accepted offer of $57 per share, which amounted to a 61 percent premium over the stock’s closing price on June 14 before he appeared from Mars. Why any buyer would go higher is beyond me—I’d rather have a Twombly or three, and as many grand houses to hang them in. (Heck, I’d even pay taxes on the paintings.) If there’s a person that knows what the organizational innards look like at Sotheby’s, it’s Adam.When I bumped into Amy Cappellazzo the other day, she was positively beaming, glowing even—not due to seeing me, most assuredly, but rather to her prescient purchase of a large lump of Sotheby’s stock when she came onboard to chair the fine-art division in January 2016.Did you hear the one about a high-profile international advisor who claimed she was buying art for Mexican collector Eugenio López, when in fact it was for her own account to personally flip? It didn’t go as planned, however, when she got caught and blacklisted from the major gallery. Meanwhile, another advisor reneged on a purchase with me, and I swore to never deal (or speak) with him again. Until, that is, he dropped off a fab pink Mary Heilmann limited-edition chair as a housewarming gift for my new Upper East Side home (cheaper than Williamsburg, mind you). It doesn’t take much to warm the cockles of my heart. It’s all in a day’s art-dealing.This tidbit is neither here nor there and may or may not be true, so let’s make it a blind-ish item, as they say: a reliable artist (they exist) told me that a notoriously capricious gallerist disposed of the entire archive (in flames) after a heavyweight painter he represented for decades got Gagosian-ed—take it for what it’s worth.Hey, mom, look what I found in the attic! Co-starring Tilda Swinton (of course) and 21 Savage. What’s next? Photo illustration courtesy of Kenny Schachter.First there was the Leonardo da Vinci rediscovery, then the Caravaggio unearthing, and now a work said to be by Velázquez sold at Sotheby’s in London. What’s next, god only knows. All I found in my attic were a pair of old sneakers and some polyester track pants. Tom Hill bought the Caravaggio for what I can report was around €30 million, the lowest starting point that was expected for bidding before the work was pulled from auction by Marc Labarbe, auctioneer and head of the eponymous house in Toulouse, France. The reason it was sold privately instead, as I was told by a highly placed Old Masters dealer? A lack of interest by other parties, and the desire on the part of Hill to avoid public disclosure of the lower-than-expected price he was able to snap up the work for. You wonder why a lot of people hate me?I wanna get in on the action—here’s some artnet merch! Get it while you can. Photo illustration courtesy of Kenny Schachter.Products are the new paint (no more Louis Vuitton artist-designed bags, please!), whereas money was yesterday’s medium (think diamond skulls) for those with the cash. But all the bed, bath, and beyond in the world won’t bring back certain unnamed artists’ markets. What differentiates this phenomenon from years past is that some of the “emerging” artists currently whoring themselves—er, engaging with the marketplace—have yet to even truly emerge with their art, and are still getting sucked in to the fray. Enough.My best client. “Hi Scam, how’s it going? Are there any deals we can do today?” Image courtesy of Kenny Schachter.Every time a particular collector I know phones me, the number comes up on the screen as “Scam Likely.” Funny, Scam’s one of the richest people I know. When another friend (I actually have a few) recently attended a party, a collector waltzed up to her and said, “Did you go to the auctions last week? We bought the Monet.” To which she replied, without missing a beat, “We bought the Modigliani.” I helped to auction some minor family art and we were barraged with last-minute guarantee offers. The lesson: you only get offered guarantees when you don’t need them (for there is ample demand), instead of when you’re in a corner.In the year 2000 I wrote an article for a German magazine analyzing the auction-house day sales, and the conclusion was that you shouldn’t sell work at Phillips that could be accepted for consignment at either Sotheby’s or Christie’s. Guess what? Absolutely nothing has changed since. Sotheby’s sold a Jeff Koons ballerina edition last month for $162,000 and last week Phillips sold another iteration from the same series (of 25) for less than $80,000—and right after Koons had his auction high of $91 million in May, no less. Keep up the good work. Maybe if Phillips had an apostrophe in their name like everyone else people would take them more seriously. They do have the best, easiest-to-use website, I’ll hand them that—and Christie’s has the worst, in terms of convenience of use and upfront information.Phillips complains (and then complains more) about my treatment of them in my column—call me a repeat offender—but they regularly mess up, and I’m being generous. Phillips’s principals were offered substantially more for a Rudolf Stingel portrait and a Basquiat, both of which they owned, but rejected the higher offers before the sales in the way only Phillips can.That said, there were a handful of publicly noted losses from stuff chucked back into auction after only recently being acquired, like John Sayegh-Belchatowski’s Stingel at Sotheby’s, which he had bought in Hong Kong for a lot more than it re-re-sold for. Art is a slow-burning process, and the days of quick flips are for the most part over, other than for the anointed few. Desperation is never a good look in the market—dealers smell the blood. The lucky and smart can still make money selling (and Sayegh-Belchatowski is usually one of them), but wealth is generated by holding onto good art, and, in that regard, nothing will change.Another day in New York: the ambulance needs an ambulance. But the art market was relatively unscathed, except for the marked correction in Rudolf Stingel, Christopher Wool, George Condo, Gerhard Richter, Sigmar Polke—everyone except woman and artists of color. Photo courtesy of Kenny Schachter.Walking along Madison Avenue the other day, I encountered an ambulance that exploded right before my eyes before then becoming engulfed in flames—just as Ivanna Trump was casually strolling by with her lapdog in tow. You can’t invent reality, nor can you predict what the future will hold. But I will venture nonetheless: though the London sales were rocky, the fall in New York will suffer no causalities (neither did the ambulance crew) and end up as strong as ever. No other sales attract better works, other than the spring season in New York. But the takeaway from London was to take stock, along with a healthy dose of realism.Follow artnet News on Facebook: Want to stay ahead of the art world?

first_imgWairarapa’s Copthorne Hotel & Resort Solway Park has joined a prestigious group of top tourism operators after being awarded a Qualmark Enviro-Gold award.Copthorne Solway Park, which is located in Masterton, was awarded the gold honours after achieving top standards across the five key action areas of energy efficiency, waste management, water conservation, community activities and conservation initiatives. It comes just weeks after it being awarded a Four Star Plus accreditation by Qualmark – New Zealand Tourism’s official quality assurance system.Jerry Crump, General Manager of the Copthorne Hotel & Resort Solway Park, says he is proud to achieve the gold award, which reflects his team’s philosophy of having a sustainable business and being a responsible tourism operator.“We’re thrilled to receive the Enviro-Gold and ‘Four Star Plus’ accreditation in recognition of the extensive refurbishment that we began to implement two years ago and for the many ‘green’ processes and practices we’ve put in place,” says Mr Crump. “Qualmark has always been the sign of quality in New Zealand tourism, so now we’ve been recognised it will help both international and domestic tourists make informed decisions about where they choose to visit.”Mr Crump says the business took several steps in order to achieve the Enviro Gold award. For instance a Green Team was established to help drive major projects including one recycling initiative which saw team members personally take recycling to the recycling centre and sort it.“This way we know absolutely that our waste is recycled responsibly,” says Green Team member and Business Development Executive Caroline de Lautour.Staff from Copthorne Hotel & Resort Solway Park also worked closely with the Sustainable Tourism Advisor in Regions (STAR) Programme advisor John Gilberthorpe, who provided mentoring assistance to help them develop sustainability initiatives within their business. The STAR programme is a Ministry of Tourism funded initiative to provide tourism operators with guidance and the tools to enhance their environmental performance. Destination Wairarapa obtained the contract to deliver this programme within the region in 2008.“As part of STAR, we received a full analysis of our business’ environmental performance, from which we  could identify our key sustainable strengths and areas which we could improve, which gave us a great foundation to build on,” explains Mr Crump.Copthorne Hotel & Resort Solway Park offers affordable luxury and family accommodation.  Based in Masterton and boasting magnificent views of the Tararua Ranges, it is set in 10 hectares of landscaped gardens and grounds offering guests easy access to the characterful towns Greytown, Martinborough, Carterton and Featherston.  It is also part of Millennium Hotels & Resorts Worldwide which is committed to sustainable tourism.“As a member hotel, we’ve  been lucky to have had opportunities to share ideas with other hotels in the chain who have achieved highly, such as Copthorne Hotel & Resort Queenstown Lakefront, as well as having access to all in-house collateral, which communicates our values to our customers,” says Mr Crump. “Being sustainable in tourism doesn’t mean reinventing the wheel – we’re all in this together and learning from each other is a valuable resource.”The Qualmark endorsement system sits alongside the Qualmark star grading system for accommodation. Over 2,300 accommodation and other tourism businesses throughout New Zealand have been through the assessment process and are licensed to use the quality mark. Qualmark is jointly owned by Tourism New Zealand and the New Zealand Automobile Association. The programme is run as an industry service, on a not-for-profit basis and is the way the industry directs travellers to quality assured products and services.

the American Indian Movement here in the TIME Vault: Starting Down the Protest Trail Write to Lily Rothman at lilyrothman@timecomUpdated 3:08 pm ET Health officials in Dallas were assessing about 100 people for possible contact with the Ebola virus Thursday while four family members of the Texas hospital patient diagnosed with the disease were placed under quarantine Wednesday night to stem its potential spread Thomas Eric Duncan’s close family members who spent time with Duncan in an apartment near the north Dallas hospital where he is now battling the virus received hand-delivered orders from Texas and Dallas County officials not to leave the apartment or to receive visitors without approval until at least Oct 19 the end of the virus’s 21-day incubation period The order was given after health officials grew worried about their ability to carry out necessary monitoring of the family members which includes twice-daily check-ups to take the individuals’ temperatures Dr David Lakey commissioner of the Texas Department of State Health Services cited “concern about our ability to be confident that monitoring was going to take place the way we needed it to take place" The order is being enforced by a law enforcement official stationed outside the apartment The quarantined family members have taken rudimentary measures to prevent themselves from exposure to the disease including placing Duncan’s bedding and clothing in a trash bag said health officials The officials said they have been working to arrange a professional cleaning service for the family which is receiving deliveries of groceries “There is no perfect response” said Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins “People are doing their best here” Duncan remains in “serious” condition according to a spokesperson for the hospital Texas Health Presbyterian He is being kept in a private ward under the care of top doctors Duncan has access to a phone to communicate with family members but is not allowed to receive visitors Operations elsewhere in the hospital are unaffected The number of people being assessed for Ebola symptoms swelled overnight as local state and federal officials scrambled to compile a list of anyone who had immediate or indirect contact with Duncan the first person to develop Ebola in the United States None of the people being monitored have exhibited any signs of the virus Of the roughly 100 people on the list of individuals being assessed for possible contact with the virus only a “handful” are thought to have had potential exposure said Dr Thomas Frieden the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) There are no plans to isolate additional people officials said Health officials will use a technique known as contact tracing to identify the circle of people who are potentially at risk It involves finding everyone who came into close contact with the patient and then interviewing them to identify additional potential contacts who are subsequently tracked down and interviewed themselves This form of shoe-leather epidemiology will continue until officials are confident that no one is at risk for contracting or spreading the virus health officials said Compiling a list of possible contacts is the preliminary phase of a technique known as contact tracing The contact tracing will be carried out by a team of five epidemiologists with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in concert with county and state health officials The process involves both phone calls and in-person visits during which interviews are conducted and possible contacts are provided with information about the virus and informed about best practices to prevent its spread Health officials will check in with those contacts daily to monitor for symptoms of the virus which include high fever severe headache vomiting and diarrhea It is no surprise the tally of possible contacts has grown Health officials are casting a very wide net and the number of people on the list of possible contacts is expected to shrink dramatically as the investigation continues and contacts are divided into high-risk low-risk and no risk categories health officials said The majority of people being monitored did not necessarily have contact with Duncan himself but rather with someone who Duncan encountered “No one is symptomatic as of yet” said Erikka Neroes a spokeswoman for Dallas County Health and Human Services “either in the first group or that second group” Apart from the four family members under quarantine all the people being monitored are able to move freely Ebola is not contagious until a person shows symptoms of the virus Health officials are not ruling out the possibility that more Ebola cases will emerge but they say they are confident in their ability to contain the situation While extremely deadly Ebola is difficult to transmit It is communicated through bodily fluids like vomit or blood but cannot travel through the air “The bottom line here is we remain confident that we can contain any spread of Ebola within the US” said Frieden Still he added “there could be additional cases” Write to Alex
