LGBT se manifiesta por cuadro de Zapata feminizado

Dec 13, 2019

(CDMX). Al exterior del Palacio de Bellas Artes la comunidad LGBT se manifestó a favor de la libertad de creación, esto por el cuadro del Zapata feminizado que ha causado polémica nacional.

En apoyo a Fabián Chairez, creador de la exposición “Zapata después de Zapata”, acudieron cientos de personas con carteles y banderas alucivas al movimiento.

Además algunos de los asistentes iban caracterizados como revolucionarios, portaban bigote y le dieron un toque feminista a sus vestuarios.

Cabe destacar que el creador del cuadro titulado “La Revolución”, que muestra al Caudillo del Sur en un caballo, desnudo, con tacones y sombrero rosa, arribó a la explanada del recinto de Bellas Artes.

Entre las protestas, exigieron parar la violencia con la que se ha tratado a los homosexuales, así como se vuelva a abrir la exposición al público.

Con pista de patinaje ecológica iniciarán festejos decembrinos

Dec 13, 2019

(CDMX). Para iniciar las actividades decembrinas en la Ciudad de México, el Gobierno instala la pista de hielo ecológica para que los capitalinos disfruten estas vacaciones.

El Zócalo capitalino nuevamente tendrá pista de patinaje pero esta ocasión será una pista ecológica, pues será de acrílico y no de hielo, como se venía haciendo en años anteriores.

Se llamará “Ecologísssima”, ya que no consume agua, energía y gasolina; será de 4 mil metros cuadrados y es la pista de patinaje en hielo sintético más grande del mundo, así como comprende una reducción de 30 millones de pesos menos por instalación y mantenimiento.

Cabe mencionar que aunque es de otro material, se puede patinar de la misma manera que una de hielo normal y se utilizan los mismos patines con cuchillo de acero.

Esta actividad estará disponible hasta las 20 horas del 6 de enero de 2020.

Prevé AMLO que T-MEC sea ratificado antes del 20 de diciembre por EU

Dec 13, 2019

(CDMX). Prevé el presidente Andrés Manuel López Obrador que el Tratado México, Estados Unidos y Canadá (T-MEC) sea ratificado por el congreso norteamericano a más tardar el 20 de diciembre.

En Palacio Nacional, el jefe del Ejecutivo mencionó que ya hay un acuerdo entre demócratas y republicanos, lo que permitiría la ratificación en próximos días.

“Esperemos que en Estados Unidos se haga lo mismo, ellos tienen hasta el día 20, al parecer hay acuerdo entre republicanos y demócratas y quedaría pendiente Canadá para principios del año próximo. Pero en el caso del Congreso de Estados Unidos puede aprobarse antes del 20”, señaló.

El acuerdo fue firmado el pasado 10 de diciembre en la Ciudad de México, y analizado por el Senado de la República, donde finalmente fueron aprobados los cambios.

“Ayer se aprobó en el Senado la enmienda, el adendum al Tratado de Libre Comercio, esto fue un triunfo porque va a crear mejores condiciones para la llegada de la inversión extranjera para el fortalecimiento de la industria.”

Brazil back in top ten as Kenya and Congo DR soar

Dec 13, 2019



The USA will end 2019 as they began it: on top of the FIFA/Coca-Cola Women’s World  Ranking. Brazil will also head into 2020 in familiar territory, having made an immediate return to the top ten after dropping out in September for the first time in their history.Having been rewarded for recent friendly wins over England (6th, down 1) and Canada (8th, down 1), the Brazilians (9th, up 2) are essentially the only notable climbers in the table’s upper echelons. Korea DPR (11th, down 2), with whom they have swapped places, have fallen due to not having played since the ranking’s last edition.The big moves come further down the ladder, however, with CAF and Concacaf’s Olympic qualifiers having produced the most significant recent upsets. In the latter region, St Kitts and Nevis’s (127th, up 7) stunning away victory over Trinidad and Tobago (72nd, down 11) has provided the biggest points haul, and it also took the victors through to the final stage of Concacaf’s Tokyo 2020 preliminaries.Kenya (133rd, up 10) also sent shock waves across women’s football recently by beating traditional African powerhouses Ghana (60th, down 10) over two legs. The scale of that surprise is reflected in the change in both teams’ ranking, while Congo DR (108th, up 10) – who have also enjoyed a double-digit rise – have been rewarded for an equally unlikely home win over Cameroon (49th, down 3).This latest edition provides cause for celebration, too, for six countries who have improved on their previous record positions, with Belgium (17th, up 1), Chile (36th, up 1), Papua New Guinea (46th, up 1), Slovenia (50th, up 3), Panama (53rd, up 3) and Fiji (65th, up 3) all reaching new highs.Click here to view the complete ranking.

Le Brésil, qui avait quitté le Top 10 pour la première fois de son histoire en septembre dernier, y fait son retour et attaquera donc 2020 en terrain connu.Récemment victorieuses de l’Angleterre (6e, moins 1) et du Canada (8e, moins 1), les Brésiliennes (9e, plus 2) sont les quasiment seules à progresser dans le haut du tableau. La RDP Corée (11e, moins 2), qui n’a pas disputé la moindre rencontre depuis la dernière édition du classement, fait quant à elle le chemin inverse.Les plus grosses progressions interviennent plus bas dans la hiérarchie, notamment sous l’effet des qualifications olympiques de la CAF et de la Concacaf. Dans les Caraïbes, l’exploit de Saint-Kitts-et-Nevis (127e, plus 7) face à Trinité-et-Tobago (72e, moins 11) lui permet d’engranger le plus grand nombre de points, en plus de lui assurer une place au tour final des qualifications de la Concacaf pour Tokyo 2020.Le Kenya (133e, plus 10) a également créé la surprise en battant le Ghana (60e, moins 10), pourtant largement favori, lors d’une confrontation aller-retour. Le classement de ces deux équipes s’en ressent, tout comme celui de la RD Congo (108e, plus 10) après sa non moins surprenante victoire face au Cameroun (49e, moins 3).Enfin, cette dernière édition de l’année offre à six pays l’occasion d’atteindre le meilleur classement de leur histoire : la Belgique (17e, plus 1), le Chili (36e, plus 1), la Papouasie-Nouvelle-Guinée (46e, plus 1), la Slovénie (50e, plus 3), le Panama (53e, plus 3) et les Fidji (65e, plus 3).Veuillez cliquer icipour voir le classement complet

EspañolBrasil de nuevo en la élite; súbito ascenso de Kenia y de la RD del CongoEstados Unidos finaliza el 2019 en la cúspide la Clasificación Mundial Femenina FIFA/Coca-Cola, justo donde lo comenzó. Por otra parte, Brasil, tras haber retornado al grupo selecto de las diez mejores tras haberlo abandonado por primera vez en su historia, inicia el 2020 pisando territorio conocido.Gracias a sus triunfos en amistosos disputados recientemente contra Inglaterra (6.ª, –1) y Canadá (8.ª, –1), las brasileñas (9.ª, +2) son básicamente las únicas con un ascenso destacado en los primeros escalones de la tabla. La selección de la RPD de Corea (11.ª, –2), con quienes intercambiaron lugares, se desplomó por no haber estado presentes en las canchas desde la última edición de la clasificación mundial.En una zona inferior de la clasificación se registran importantes movimientos que reflejan las grandes sorpresas que han dado los clasificatorios olímpicos de la CAF y de la Concacaf. En cuanto a esta última, San Cristóbal y Nieves (127.ª, +7) impresionó con una victoria fuera de casa frente a Trinidad y Tobago (72.ª, –11) que le reportó no solo el mayor número de puntos, sino también un lugar en la fase final de los clasificatorios de la Concacaf para Tokio 2020. La selección de Kenia (133.ª, +10) también ha sacudido el panorama del fútbol femenino imponiéndose a doble partido ante Ghana (60.ª, –10), la gran potencia africana. La repercusión de ese logro se refleja en los cambios de posiciones de ambas selecciones, como fue igualmente el caso de la RD del Congo (108.ª, +10), recompensada por una sorprendente victoria en casa contra Camerún que les valió una subida de diez posiciones.También pudieron unirse a la fiesta otras seis selecciones que mejoraron sus propios récords: Bélgica (17.ª, +1), Chile (36.ª, +1), Papúa Nueva Guinea (46.ª, +1), Eslovenia (50.ª, +3), Panamá (53.ª, +3) y Fiyi (65.ª, +3). Haga clic aquípara acceder a la clasificación complete

City Reaffirms Commitment to Arts and Culture Services

Dec 13, 2019

HOUSTON -The Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs announces City Council approval of approximately $128 million of Hotel Occupancy Tax (HOT) revenue for arts and culture grants over the next five to seven years through a new contract with Houston Arts Alliance.

The Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs (MOCA) advises the mayor on cultural policy and sets the vision and goals for the City’s cultural investments. With the City’s adopted Arts and Cultural Plan as the guide, MOCA has achieved a high level of fairness, equity and transparency in the grants programs.

State law provides municipalities the use of some HOT revenues for the support of the arts to promote tourism and advance the convention and hotel industry.

Calendar year 2020 marks the 42nd year a Houston public/private partnership – exemplified by the contract with the Arts Alliance — in support of the arts in Houston. Collaboration has proved highly effective in developing the nonprofit arts community and providing vital services to residents and visitors in Houston.

“I commend and thank the arts community for working together to reach the contract approval to continue the City of Houston’s investment in cultural services,” Mayor Sylvester Turner said. “I see first-hand the diversity of creative expression available every day across our city and all of the ways the arts contribute to the image of Houston as a great place to live and visit.”

“The work we have done over the last four years has strengthened our systems because they reinforce our values and respond to community concerns,” said MOCA Director Debbie McNulty. “This is the fairest contract in the city’s recent history by instituting a new uniform grants application process that recognizes the contributions of nonprofit organizations of all sizes and disciplines as well as artists.”

Arts and culture offerings provide benefits to residents and improve quality of life through lifelong learning, student success, social and civic engagement, as well as significant economic benefits and jobs.

The local nonprofit arts and culture sector is a $1.2 billion industry that employs a wide range of professions, generates local and state government revenue and pumps more than half a billion dollars into restaurants, hotels, retail stores, parking garages, and other local businesses.

IHOT-funded groups draw total audiences of about 11 million people per year and over half of the events are free to the public.The new contract ensures residents and visitors will continue to have access to a full range of cultural offerings from the largest institutions to neighborhood-based groups throughout Houston, providing film, choir, literary works, visual art, jazz, dance, theatre, musicals, outdoor sculpture, classical music, opera, murals, poetry, craft, folk & traditional arts, photography, and more.

Houston Arts Alliance administers City-funded competitive peer review grant programs to support the delivery of cultural services through over 300 non-profit arts and cultural organizations, individual artists and special art projects.

As the local arts agency, HAA also administers a city-funded cultural calendar open to any organization or event. It will also serve the single point of contact for MOCA’s disaster-related communications going forward.
