State health officials investigate Salmonella illnesses in Bethel area

first_imgThe Alaska Division of Public Health is investigating salmonella infections in the Bethel area. A team is in Bethel to track down the source of the infection.Listen nowMedical illustration of non-typhoidal salmonella. (Courtesy of the Center for Disease Control)Louisa Castrodale is an epidemiologist with the state’s Public Health division.“It’s not even the end of July and we had gotten about six cases of confirmed salmonella from the Bethel-YK area,” Castrodale said. “That’s a large number of cases for a short amount of time in a smaller location, so we were really concerned there was a common source for these infections.”Salmonella symptoms include diarrhea, stomach-ache, vomiting, fever, headache, and dehydration, especially in infants. Symptoms can start showing between six to 72 hours after exposure to salmonella bacteria, and the illness can last four to seven days.Castrodale said a team of three people from the state health department arrived in Bethel Wednesday and will stay until Friday to try and find a possible source for the illnesses.“Could have either a contaminated food product, so a food product that had salmonella in it, or you could have contact with a person that had salmonella,” Castrodale said.Salmonella can also be contracted through touching pets or animals, by not washing one’s hands, by drinking water or milk with the bacteria in it, or by eating foods that don’t have to be cooked, but that came into contact with the bacteria. Salmonella bacteria do not usually affect the taste or smell of foods.Over 50 salmonella cases are confirmed in Alaska each year; the illness is diagnosed by getting a stool sample to identify the bacteria.last_img read more

By attacking microbial cell membranes, these peptides prevent bacteria from developing rapid antibiotic resistance. While over 1,700 of these peptides are known, the structural and mechanical aspects of their functional activity have remained an unanswered question. Recently, however, scientists at Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology, The University of Edinburgh, and other instiutions1 determined the X-ray crystal structure as well as solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, electrophysiology, and molecular dynamic (MD) simulations of human dermcidin (DCD), revealing its mechanism at atomic scale. The researchers conclude that their results may lead to the peptide structure-based design of second-generation antibiotics.

In fact, we had to use five different peptides from different companies until we found a company, Peptide 2.0 Inc., which produced the peptide in the correct way,” Zeth recalls. “However, I can’t say they’ve modified their process – and luck also a factor, as are and several parameters which are influential aside from the peptide, such as who conducts the robotic screening, local climate and so on.”Moreover, the simulations that revealed the antibiotic mechanism of human dermcidin had their own complications. “Simulations require time and experience in order to capture the correct lipidic environment,” Zeth adds. “Also, the choice of the proper MD method was critical to tracing the mechanism by which ions passed through the channel.” The simulations went on for many months, he illustrates, depending on the system studied, to get a complete picture of the membrane channels. More specifically, Song notes that the production simulations took more than a year – roughly 650 days – in real time using 48 CPUs.”Several consistency checks were carried out to ensure the validity of the MD simulations,” de Groot points out. “First, the simulation parameters and setup were carefully selected to mimic the bacterial conditions as closely as possible. Second, to ensure convergence the simulations were carried out multiple times, from different starting conditions. Third, the conductance derived from the electrophysiology simulations were directly compared to measured values, showing quantitative agreement.”Another challenge, Zeth says, was conducting electrophysiology experiments in which the scientists characterized the activity of dermcidin in membranes under various conditions. “Methods applied to solve this problem are typically based on recent developments in electrophysiology. One general problem of DCD is that the peptide is very soluble in water and does not easily enter artificial membranes.” in fact, this finding has also caused NMR problems when trying to verify the tilting of the channel in membranes as predicted by MD simulations. These studies were hampered by the small portion of the peptide that was observable in an integral membrane conformation.

We’ve also tried to model the tilting behavior seen in MD simulation by solid state NMR techniques, but this approach failed. Nevertheless, the overall picture, while incomplete, leads to many follow-up experiments and stimulates the AMP community regarding the development of new mechanistic views.” As for the conductance calculated by MD, however, researchers we were able to reproduce these values using planar lipid membrane techniques in an error range of only 20%. While their paper states that their results may form a foundation for the structure-based design of peptide antibiotics, Zeth says that this is rather difficult to judge. “In fact, he says, the German company BRAIN is trying to introduce DCD into pharmaceutical studies. However, if you look closer into the general applications of peptides as AMPs, it’s rather frustrating. To my knowledge,” Zeth acknowledges, “there are no AMP peptides sold as pharmaceuticals at the moment, although the general market of peptides – against cancer and other diseases – is still growing. The problem is the size and stability of the peptides if given orally or into the bloodstream as proteases, but. DCD is active on skin – so might be easier if it was to be introduced into creams.”Zeth then described medical properties and potential of host-defense antimicrobial peptides for comparison with traditional small-molecule antibiotics.Specificity: Rather unspecific. Gram-positives and negatives are concerned while with traditional antibiotics either Gram+/Gram- are treated.Efficacy: likely to be more efficient due to inherent molecular antibacterial propertiesSafety: Not yet determined but as these molecules come from humans they should not be toxicPost-xenotransplantation immune response: Currently unknown. The problem with antimicrobial peptides is protease-based instability in the bloodstream and stomach.Autoimmune diseases: Some peptides, such including LL-37, have severe implications in autoimmunity. In fact, the overproduction of these peptides generates a number of skin diseases, such as psoriasis. More specifically, in the case of psoriasis it seems that LL-37 overproduction can cause autoimmune diseases,2 the unresolved issue being whether the peptides are produced inside or outside the cell.In terms of next steps in their research, Zeth mentions studies of mutations in the membrane-exposed side of the channel; changing properties, such as conductivity or membrane integration, inside the membrane to; peptide translocation via membranes; and mentions post-xenotransplantation immune response as “an idea for future applications.”Zeth notes that other areas of research might benefit from their research. “Generally our study will influence the current view of peptide channels in membranes – an important field, in particular for researchers trying to enhance this domain of knowledge to improve current peptide drugs. Also, our channel study benefits MD for further use in a variety of studies on mutations and different approaches to better characterize the channel. The channel is thereby a tool,” Zeth concludes, “for testing methods and answer questions which were, so far, difficult to answer due to missing structural models.” Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciencescenter_img Citation: Antibiotics 2.0: The atomic structure and mechanism of mammalian host-defense peptides (2013, April 30) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-04-antibiotics-atomic-mechanism-mammalian-host-defense.html Play Multiion permeation mechanism across DCD driven by transmembrane electric fields present across bacterial membranes. Ions enter sideways into the pore across the lateral openings that occur at the trimeric interfaces. Anion transfer across the inner pore usually involves single ion “hopping” steps. Near the channel exit, anions accumulate to form a cluster of three to four ions. Ions exiting the channel are often observed to be translocated by multiion “knockon” effects, by which anions are transferred to the bulk solution. Copyright © PNAS, doi:10.1073/pnas.1214739110 “Peptide solubility or membrane affinity can be influenced by several parameters, such as mutations or changing membrane systems,” Zeth continues. “For NMR we’ve seen essentially all of the peptide associated with the membrane in a horizontal manner. However, we were more interested in the peptide complex inserted in the membrane, but that only occurred ten percent or less of the time.” Zeth outlines the key insights and discoveries that helped the team address these challenges. “One important factor was that this was the first structure of an anti-microbial peptide in a channel conformation,” he explains. “Another was that this peptide activity seems to be zinc-dependent – although it is not really clear what activity zinc actually causes. Also,” Zeth adds, “our model, based on the molecular dynamics of ion flow through the channel, is new and unexpected, in that lateral pore openings seem to play a more important role than do terminals.”Zeth points out that their study solved the crystal structure of an AMP (antimicrobial peptide) channel for the first time in a putative channel conformation. “This result allowed a number of follow-up experiments, in particular MD simulations without assembling a rather artificial membrane pore,” he explains. “In my opinion, our AMP structure is the first to be assembled on the basis of direct X-ray data. All other AMPs used for MD are assembled based on indirect data, and while these assemblies may be correct, their structural information cannot be compared to the quality of X-ray data. This allowed us to use a system that reflects the closest membrane-bound state.” © 2013 Phys.org. All rights reserved. Explore further Model system used in the MD simulations.

Devils Pass – The Terrifying Unsolved Mystery of 9 Hikers in the

first_imgOn January 28, 1959, ten experienced cross-country skiers set out on a trek across the Ural Mountains. One of them, Yuri Yudin, came down with dysentery and turned back at the last settlement before entering the wilderness. The rest were never seen alive again. Their bodies were found a month later. Despite investigations, the full mystery of their deaths has never yet been solved. The ten skiers, 8 men, and 2 women, were students of the Ural Polytechnic Institute ranging in age from 21 to 37. All were experienced hikers and cross-country skiers attempting to ski-hike to Mount Otorten in the Ural Mountains and back. Somewhat ominously, Otorten means “don’t go there” in the language of the local people, the Mansi, according to Russia Beyond.Location of Dyatlov Pass, Russia. Photo by Uwe Dedering CC BY-SA 3.0The group was expected back on February 12th, but when they failed to return on that day, nothing was done. The group’s leader, Igor Dyatlov, had told Yudin they might need a few extra days in case of inclement weather when Yudin had left the group, according to The Telegraph.However, by February 20, the families of the missing hikers were growing concerned, and the Ural Polytechnic Institute sent volunteers on a search and rescue mission. Later, the police and army would also be sent in.A view of the tent as the rescuers found it on February 26, 1959.Based on photographs and journals left behind by the group, it is known that on the night of February 2nd, they set up camp almost a mile up the slope of a mountain near Mount Otorten called Kholat-Syakhl, which means “mountain of the dead” in Mansi.The reason for camping on the slope of the mountain rather than in the relative protection of the pass less than a mile away is unclear, but it may have been due to being off-course after being caught in a snowstorm the day before.Decision on the termination of the criminal case on the occasion of the “Dyatlov Pass incident.”According to The St. Petersburg Times, Yudin thinks that Dyatlov either did not want to lose their progress up the mountain or decided to practice camping on the slope for extra experience.Very little else is known for sure. When volunteers found the ill-fated camp on February 26th, it was in an incomprehensible state. The tent was half covered in snow and had been slashed open from the inside.The members of the group, in various states of undress, had apparently fled into the night where temperatures were less than -20 degrees Fahrenheit. Most were barefoot or in socks, though a few had managed to put one shoe on; none were appropriately dressed for the conditions.The river Auspiya, along which the tourists treked.The first two bodies were found by the volunteers on February 26th. They were around the remains of a fire and dressed only in their underwear. Branches of a tree near the fire were broken more than 15 feet above the ground, suggesting that one of the group had been looking for something, perhaps the camp, which would have been very difficult to see in the dark.Three more bodies were found between the fire and the tent, frozen in an apparent effort to return to the camp. All five of these were determined to have died of hypothermia.It took two more months for the remaining four bodies to be found, partially covered in over 10 feet of snow in a ravine near the original two bodies by the fire. The mystery only deepened when it was discovered that these bodies had suffered fractures consistent with trauma that could only result from great pressure, but no external injuries or injuries to soft tissue were evident.Furthermore, one of the bodies was missing its tongue and eyes. Their clothes, obviously taken from some of the group members who had already died, contained traces of radiation.Photo of the members of the tour group on the monument. Upper row: Doroshenko, Dubinina, Dyatlov. The middle row: Zolotarev, Kolmogorov, Kolevatov. Lower row: Krivonischenko, Slobodin, Thibault Brignoles.An official investigation concluded that the ski group had died due to an “unknown compelling force” and was soon closed. It was subsequently deemed classified, which was common in the Soviet Union at the time after disasters such as this.The area was then closed to hikers and skiers for three years. However, this explanation did not satisfy Yudin, the families of the skiers, or even some of the volunteers and investigators among others.Dyatlov Pass.Many theories have since been posited to explain what could have compelled the experienced hikers to leave the tent in the middle of the night without adequately clothing themselves. In the 1990s, more information came to light when the lead investigator Lev Ivanov recounted that he’d been ordered to close the investigation quickly by superiors.Furthermore, people remembered seeing “bright flying spheres” in the sky in the area, something that had not come out during the original investigation.Ural mountains, Russia.Ivanov speculated that these spheres could have been bombs of some kind and the force of the explosion would explain the hikers who died due to trauma injuries. Perhaps previous explosions had scared the hikers so much that they had fled the tent in a panic.However, no traces of an explosion were ever found near Mount Kholat-Syakhl. Additionally, there are no records of a missile launch at the time that would have been able to reach that area of the Ural Mountains.Yudin also believes that the military may have found the camp sooner than the volunteers from the official investigation. He had seen papers that suggested a secret investigation had begun on February 6th, almost a week before the hikers were even supposed to return.The original cover of the criminal case on the occasion of the “Dyatlov Pass incident.”Furthermore, he had been asked to identify the owners of the belongings that had been left at the camp, and there were several items he could not account for, including a scrap of cloth that could have belonged to a military uniform. He feels this theory is also supported by the radiation found on their clothes and the extreme secrecy that surrounded the investigation for so long.Another theory is that the hikers might have fled the tent due to an avalanche, but there was no evidence of broken branches or other debris that typically accompany such an event. Furthermore, avalanches almost never occur in that region, and such experienced ski-hikers would never have made camp in an area where an avalanche was likely to occur.Mikhajlov Cemetry in Yekaterinburg. The tomb of the group who had died in mysterious circumstances in the northern Ural Mountains.It was also considered that the local Mansi people might have murdered the group in retaliation for trespassing on their land, but this was quickly discounted as there were only 8 or 9 sets of footprints and no evidence of hand-to-hand combat.In 2008, a conference was organized by the Ural State Technical University (formerly the Ural Polytechnic Institute where the skiers studied), the Dyatlov Foundation (an organization dedicated to finding out the truth about the hikers’ deaths), and several nongovernmental organizations to look for answers as to why the skiers died.They concluded that military tests being carried out in the area had caused the deaths, although inadvertently. However, they do not have hard evidence to support this claim, so they cannot be sure.Read another story from us: Mt Vesuvius Explosion in 79 AD: Exploding Skulls and Boiling BloodThis mystery gripped Russia at the time, and remains fascinating to this day. Several films about or inspired by the expedition have been made, and several books have also been written. The pass near where the group set up their camp was named Dyatlov Pass after the leader of the party but has since come to be known colloquially as Devil’s Pass. It seems unlikely that the mystery will ever be solved, but the Dyatlov Foundation remains committed to learning the truth.last_img read more

Retro Monolithic Dome House for Sale – Totally Out of This World

first_imgWhen you encounter a monolithic dome house, you’re not certain whether you’re looking at something very old or very new.  But while dome-house enthusiasts claim igloos as inspiration and lay claim to the Hagia Sophia as a classical example, the hundreds of such houses, all of them cast in a one-piece form, are part of a movement that began in America in the 1960s. A perfect example is a dome house that has gone on sale in Arvada, Colorado. A “combination of architectural beauty & energy efficiency,” it’s 3,510 square feet, with three bedrooms and two tile-floor bathrooms, built on three acres of land.The groundsThis particular dome structure, dubbed “spaceship house” by locals, most recently priced at $870,000, was built in the late 1970s. “Motivated by the energy crisis of the 1970s, Clarence and Louise Lederhos were determined to build an energy-efficient abode,” according to 5280 magazine. “After much research, they opted for a monolithic dome structure designed by Boulder architect Jason Elliott Purdy. The resulting shape and materials suit eco-conscious homebuyers—of that era and still today.”AdChoices广告inRead invented by TeadsExterior of the house“For some reason, I always wanted to live in a round house,” said Louise Lederhos in an interview. “But it was the energy efficiency that drew us to this design.”The drivewayThe Lederhoses bought the land in 1974 while they worked with Purdy—already known for his monolithic dome structures and living in one himself—on plans for their house. “Financing the property was a challenge, so the couple paid off the land before embarking on the structure,” according to an article in 5280. “The home itself was constructed in 1978.”Living roomIts eight-foot-high concrete walls was built using concrete pillars before a hot air balloon was brought in to create the dome itself. The inflated balloon was coated with structural foam, gunite (sprayed concrete) with reinforcement mesh, and more layers of foam.Living roomA monolithic dome house are constructed following a method that requires a tough, inflatable Airform, steel-reinforced concrete, and a polyurethane foam insulation. In addition to houses, the domes are used as churches, schools, gyms, arenas, and bulk storage facilities. They use about 50 percent less energy for heating and cooling than a same-size, conventionally constructed building. They are touted as being resistant to tornadoes, earthquakes, and hurricanes.Beautiful windowsThe very first monolithic dome was built in 1963 in Provo, Utah. It started as an ice-skating center, turning into a store, called Ream’s Turtle by locals before being demolished in 2006.Space age comfortIt was a triaxial elliptical dome, 240 feet long, 160 feet wide, and 40 feet high at its center. “We came up with a three-dimensional elliptical structure,” said its creator, Dr. Arnold Wilson, in an interview. “But in those days, we didn’t have computers to analyze the engineering, so we decided to build and test a model in a yard. Using a mound of earth to form its shape, I built the model – a one-twelfth scale model made of reinforced concrete that looked like a giant dollhouse. I load tested it to failure and went back and made changes in the original design that matched the test results.”vintage heatKitchenKitchenBathroomBedroomBedroomAt a cost of about $75,000, Dr. Wilson said that he thinks the Ream’s Turtle was the most economical building of that size ever built. “It was a very good building for a very long time – but that’s progress, I guess,” said Dr. Wilson about the razing.Related Article: Art Deco House with Original Vintage Furnishings For Sale – Take a TourColorado has other striking  “futuristic” houses, perhaps the most famous one being “the Sleeper house.” It’s been piquing the interest of westbound I-70 travelers passing through Colorado since 1966.

Taiwans samesex marriage ruling might be in real trouble

first_imgeTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Momentum is gathering for a proposed referendum about the issue. The referendum has just been given the backing of one of Taiwan’s leading businessmen.In May last year, the Grand Council of Justices ruled it was unconstitutional that the Civil Code did not allow same-sex couples to marry. The Council gave legislators two years to make marriage equality law.But legislators have been slow to move on the issue, as conservative Christian groups pitch strong efforts to stop it happening.The Alliance of Taiwan Religious Groups applied to the Central Election Commission (CEC) to hold a referendum on marriage equality and whether schools should teach LGBTI sex education. The Alliance got more than 3,500 signatures in favor of the referendum. Now it must get 281,745 signatures in order for the referendum to become a reality. Taiwan became the first Asian nation to rule in favor of same-sex marriage, but making it happen has hit massive roadblocks. Referendum gaining momentumTsai Wei-li is the chairman of Nanyang Industries which distributes Hyundai vehicles in Taiwan.He has offered a cash incentive to his staff to help campaign for the referendum against same-sex marriage.Tsai offered to pay staff NT$1,000 (US$33) to cover their expenses while campaigning.In responding to criticism of his initiative, Tsai said it was not compulsory. But he believed that marriage should remain between a man and a woman. He also said that schools should not teach students anything about LGBTI issues.Nanyang’s parent company, the Sanyang Group, distanced itself from Tsai’s comments. It told Apple Daily that Tsai was entitled to his own opinion, but it did not reflect the company’s position. The Sanyang Group also said company policy barred staff from discussing political issues on internal networks.LGBTI groups tired, but preparing for referendumMarriage equality and LGBTI advocates in Taiwan said they were preparing to campaign if the referendum goes ahead.‘Considering the limited resources we have, we have decided to focus on getting more volunteers in each city and providing training for them to prepare the upcoming battle,’ Wayne Lin, a board member of Taiwan Tongzhi (LGBT) Hotline Association told Gay Star News.

Colombias modest peace

Why that’s a blow to the US Cúcuta: Colombia’s city of contraband and a broken Bolivarian dream Colombia’s ‘discriminatory’ military draft under discussion as peace deal comes closer BOMBOLO, Colombia – While Syria’s civil war and political crises in Thailand and Ukraine continue to dominate the headlines, Colombia’s government, led by President Juan Manuel Santos, and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) may be about to end the longest and most brutal conflict in Latin America’s history. An agreement would enable Colombia – an important regional ally of the United States – to shift its attention and resources to economic and social development.The latest series of talks – held in Havana, and mediated by Cuba and Norway – was launched in November 2012. Despite some setbacks, the process has raised hope of a permanent end to the 50-year conflict, which has displaced at least five million people and led to more than 200,000 deaths (an estimated 85 percent of them civilians), with 23,161 selective killings, 25,007 forced disappearances, 27,023 kidnappings, and 1,982 massacres.Of course, this is not the parties’ first attempt to forge a peace agreement. In the late 1990’s, President Andrés Pastrana’s government met with the guerrillas – along with representatives from the United Nations and from Cuba, Spain, France, Switzerland, Brazil, and other countries – in a demilitarized area of Colombia to pursue an agreement.But the talks faced considerable headwinds. The United States never believed in the process, and undermined it at every opportunity. Moreover, Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, who rose to power in 1999, viewed the FARC as a natural partner in an eventual new alliance of left-wing forces in the Andes. With Europe offering only empty promises, and the U.N. unsure of how to catalyze progress on the talks’ ambitious 12-point agenda (which included more than 100 items), the effort collapsed in 2002.Fortunately, much has changed in the last decade. For starters, meeting outside of Colombia has enabled the parties to avoid the pressure and manipulation that contributed to the breakdown of talks the last time.Furthermore, the U.S. – hesitant to face yet another foreign-policy disruption, much less offer assistance or deploy troops, and facing other hotspots where vital national interests are more at stake – has contributed, albeit discreetly, to a negotiated settlement. Likewise, since the final years of Chávez and during Nicolás Maduro’s tenure, Venezuela has played a far more constructive role in promoting peace, recognizing that the hostile neighborhood created by the Colombian conflict is impeding its own progress. (The U.N., the European Union, and the Union of South American Nations, focusing on other priorities, have avoided becoming collectively involved.)Finally, this time, the negotiations are more manageable in scope, focusing on five specific issues: an agrarian-development policy, the FARC’s political participation, ending the conflict (demobilization and transitional justice), reparations for the victims, and curbing the illicit drug trade. Any agreement must cover all five.So far, both sides have been realistic, avoiding ideological or formalist postures – in part, a reflection of the new balance of forces. In the 1990’s, the FARC was on the rise, and presented a maximalist list of demands. Today, the guerrillas are significantly weaker, allowing Santos’ government to offer a minimalist agreement that can satisfy both the Colombian establishment, which backs the process but without much conviction, and a fatigued and mercurial public that wants peace but remains unwilling to accept too many concessions to the FARC.General agreements have already been reached on the first two issues – agrarian development and the FARC’s political participation – though some key details have yet to be settled. To facilitate continued progress, the parties have delayed the more delicate issues – ending the conflict and the question of reparations – while focusing first on halting illegal drug production, an issue on which the two sides’ positions are much closer. Indeed, the FARC’s proposal – centered on protecting the rural farmers who make their living cultivating illicit crops, including by establishing a legal market for such crops – is relatively moderate.In fact, the FARC’s influence on drug trafficking has waned considerably in recent years, as the large cartels that once dominated Colombia’s narcotics industry have given way to numerous smaller criminal organizations, led by warlords associated with far-right political forces. The result has been a sort of pax mafiosa: consolidated, regionally legitimized actors, with drug traffickers, old paramilitary groups, new criminal bands, large landholders, and political caciques reinforcing one another.Barring a major event – say, an assassination of a major figure, a large-scale military attack, or a significant split within the political elite or the FARC leadership – the negotiations are likely to continue. After all, a rupture would be extremely costly to both sides.But there is one potential obstacle that cannot be avoided: the May presidential election. Santos needs to be re-elected in order to sideline former President Álvaro Uribe, who, along with recalcitrant civilian and military elements, is trying to undermine the negotiations. That requires that the talks progress steadily, and that the FARC remains reliable and united. But the FARC will not hand Santos the speedy agreement that would ease his path to victory, and he knows that the flag of peace will not ensure his re-election.In the first round of the 2010 presidential election – in which only 49 percent of the electorate participated – Santos obtained 47 percent of the vote. Today, while Santos is ahead in the polls, a considerable share of voters remains undecided, with low expected turnout further clouding his prospects for re-election.Moreover, the talks’ outstanding issues are intricate, especially the question of compensating the conflict’s victims. There is always the risk that the armed actors, both the guerrillas and the military, could obstruct progress on this crucial matter.Despite these challenges, there is much reason to hope that this time an agreement will be reached. Even a modest and fragile peace would represent a major advance for Colombia’s democracy and economic prospects.Juan Gabriel Tokatlian is Director of the Department of Political Science and International Studies at Universidad Torcuato Di Tella in Buenos Aires.© Project Syndicate, 2014www.project-syndicate.org Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Rio museum opens its doors to Carnivals anonymous artisans

first_img Top Stories RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Jeff Koons’ “Balloon Dog” and Henry Moore’s “Archer” are among some of the world’s most iconic sculptures competing for space at a new museum exhibition where one of Alberto Giacometti’s signature figurines appears to stride boldly into the room.It would be a world-class show if the pieces weren’t copies made of Styrofoam, using the same techniques for making the floats in Rio’s Carnival parades. The exhibit “End of Matter” by Mexican artist Damian Ortega celebrates artisans who make Carnival floats, bringing them out of the stifling hangars where they labor anonymously. In a space transformed into a workshop inside Rio’s Museum of Modern Art, the artisans saw, slice, sand and drill away at giant blocks of Styrofoam while visitors look on.“It’s an homage to work, to the creative process,” said Ortega, one of Mexico’s best-known contemporary artists. Ortega got the idea for the show when he lived in Rio from 2012-2013 and came across a larger-than-life-sized bull’s head of Styrofoam that was abandoned on the train tracks.“It was a survivor from Carnival,” he said in a telephone interview from Mexico City, adding that the encounter inspired him to visit a samba school hangar where such pieces are made. “It was beautiful, so amazing, and the idea stuck with me.”The 47-year-old Ortega has shown his work in numerous countries, and currently has sculptures in the shape of graffiti tags included in the “Panorama” exhibit at the High Line urban park in New York.Ortega’s show in Rio opened last month with a few finished sculptures and a towering pile of Styrofoam in the middle of the exhibition space. The foam has gradually shrunk as seven artisans churn out pieces under his tutelage. The aim is to have the cavernous hall filled with sculptures and all 2,000 kilograms (4,400 pounds) of foam blocks used up when the exhibit ends on June 14. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies The copies, which museum officials calls “homages,” are all true to the size of the originals. As a result, the Styrofoam “Balloon Dog” stands at more than 3.5 meters (11.5 feet) tall, just like the original of polished stainless steel.The show also includes replicas of pieces by unknown artists, such as a grimacing stone carving made by Mexico’s native Olmec people some 2,500 years ago. Next up is an 8-meter- (27-foot-) long reclining Buddha from Southeast Asia, which the artisans will coax out of the massive rectangular blocks using heated metal wires, long knives shaped like scythes and combs with nails for teeth, among other customized tools of the Carnival trade.Rather than their original colors, or the eye-popping hues of the floats, the pieces are plain white, covered in a layer of flat paint that disguises any seams where bits of foam are glued together.While it’s largely the same work the artisans do for the samba schools, working conditions at the museum are very different from those inside the giant hangars in Rio’s derelict port area.For starters, the museum has air conditioning, something the sweltering hangars lack. But the workers have to keep a lid on the noise level at the museum, dialing down the vigor of their scraping and sawing and playing samba songs on the radio at a whisper. 0 Comments   Share   Former Arizona Rep.

At left is a replica of British artist Henry Moore’s “Archer.” At bottom center is a replica of the late French-American artist Louise Bourgeois’ “Cumul I.” Behind, center right is a replica of Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto’s “Glip Family.” The copies, which museum officials calls “homages,” are all true to the size of the originals, so “Balloon Dog” stands at more than 3.5 meters (11.5 feet) tall, like the polish stainless steel original. “Cumul I,” the copy of the diminutive cloud-shaped formation sculptor Louise Bourgeois crafted in marble, could almost be confused with a chunk of Styrofoam litter from the workshop. (AP Photo/Leo Correa) Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility The vital role family plays in society Still, the museum working hours are a lot better.“Here we have to arrive at a certain time, and the museum closes at a certain time,” said Charles Rocha, 39, who has been a “carnavalesco,” or Carnival artisan, for two decades. “At the samba schools, there’s no such thing as a shift. When Carnival gets close, we work all day, all night and are at it until our arms give out.”Daniel Soave, a 34-year-old who usually works for the Emperatriz Leopoldinense samba school, said the show has helped legitimize his work and has given the Carnival arts the recognition they deserve.Brenda Valansi, co-founder of the annual ArtRio art fair, hailed the show as “interesting, really very cool,” but said she is disappointed about the artwork’s eventual fate.Museum president Carlos Alberto Gouvea Chateaubriand noted the artisans’ time there is limited, and said when the show ends, their pieces will go the way of all Carnival floats — to the garbage.“I understand the concept and it makes total sense, artistically,” said Valansi. “But I would really like to have that Giacometti in my living room,” she said, referring to the sculptor’s long and lean “L’homme qui marche I.” ___Follow Jenny Barchfield on Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/jennybarchfieldCopyright © The Associated Press.

the media that a date has been fixed for parties primaries He said: “The commission has not fixed the dates or period for the holding of the parties primaries For the avoidance of doubt only the dates for elections have been released not the timetable “It is the timetable and the schedules of activities that will state details of major steps and milestones including the period for conducting primaries and submission of names for party candidates “This will be released in due course and the public and stakeholders will be duly informed through official channels” Osaze-Uzzi advised

one of the senior leaders in the Panneerselvam camp ridiculed Lok Sabha Deputy Speaker Thambidurai calling him a person with no following labelled Chief Minister Edappadi Palaniswamy a Sasikala appointee and admonished Finance Minister D Jayakumar for his comments At the heart of the hard talk is a feeling in the OPS camp that Palaniswamy is taking them for a ride Panneerselvam’s associates are convinced that the disassociation from Sasikala and TTV Dinakaran (also spelt as Dhinakaran) is a set-up Independent sources also indicate that Dinakaran was told that if he is seen as throwing in

call himself the only Mr Clean The problem with that position is that the public does not buy into it And while EPS could carry on as chief minister he will have to spend much of his time looking over
