Press release: One of a kind Victorian ceramic crab at risk of export

first_imgThe large anthropomorphic crab is valued at £217,250 and is the earliest large sculpture by the brothers Martin Brothers’ works were highly original and they can be considered the first studio potters in Britain The Martin Brothers are famous for creating unique and unusual works that are entertaining yet at the same time unsettling, which makes the crab with teeth such a whimsical and eclectic treasure. I hope that a buyer can be found so we can keep this work in this country to inspire future generations of potters. Sculpture of a large anthropomorphic crab, 1880 Salt-glazed stoneware 21 x 48.5 x 41.5cm by the Martin Brothers, sculpted by Robert Wallace Martin (1843-1923) Sir Hayden Phillips, the Chairman of the Reviewing Committee, said: Arts Minister, Rebecca Pow has placed an export bar on one of the earliest pieces of sculptural art pottery in the country in a bid to keep it in the UK.The work, a large anthropomorphic crab made by Robert Wallace Martin and his brothers, is at risk of being lost abroad unless a buyer can be found to match the £217,250 + VAT of £43,450 asking price.The Martin Brothers were independent pottery manufacturers in London in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century who produced a distinct type of ceramic sculpture and pottery inspired by gothic art and the natural world.The brothers were among the earliest British art potters and developed a unique influential style. Their methods of working were unique in the 19th century and a precursor to the studio pottery movement of the 20th century.The salt-glazed stoneware crab was made in 1880. It is a striking example of Robert Wallace Martin’s grotesque sculpture, where he used his traditional training in new and unconventional ways. The crab is one of the earliest known pieces of sculptural Martinware and its recent sale broke the record price for one of their works.Arts Minister Rebecca Pow said: Provenance:center_img The Minister’s decision follows the advice of Reviewing Committee on the Export of Works of Art and Objects of Cultural Interest (RCEWA). The Committee noted that the crab was an extraordinary object that exemplified remarkable technical control of stoneware and was a major piece of Victorian art.The RCEWA made its recommendation on the grounds of the crab’s outstanding aesthetic importance and its significant interest for the study of late Victorian art pottery, the work of the Martin Brothers and of Robert Wallace Martin in particular.The decision on the export licence applications for the crab will be deferred until 16 September 2019. This may be extended until 16 December 2019 if a serious intention to raise funds to purchase it is made at the recommended price of £217,250 plus VAT of £43,450.Offers from public bodies for less than the recommended price through the private treaty sale arrangements, where appropriate, may also be considered. Such purchases frequently offer substantial financial benefits to a public institution wishing to acquire.ENDSNotes to editorsOrganisations or individuals interested in purchasing the crab should contact the RCEWA on 0845 300 6200.Details of the crab are as follows: This idiosyncratic sculptural crab, large and grinning, by Robert Wallace Martin, was featured in the Pall Mall Gazette in 1890, ten years after its creation. It then disappeared only to resurface in 1980. The Committee considered it was of outstanding importance for the study of late-Victorian art pottery and the work of the Martin brothers. A truly grotesque creature, it represents the pinnacle of their work, and we also concluded that it was of outstanding aesthetic importance reflecting the fact that this criterion does not necessarily imply that an object has to be beautiful to pass that test. This crab is of a quality and scale lacking in UK public collections and I hope one of them will come forward to give it a good home so it does not disappear again. Private collection, UK Richard Dennis Gallery, London John S. M. Scott, Esq., London, 1985 The Fine Art Society, London Sinai and Sons, London, 2014 Acquired from the above. The Reviewing Committee on the Export of Works of Art and Objects of Cultural Interest is an independent body, serviced by The Arts Council, which advises the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport on whether a cultural object, intended for export, is of national importance under specified criteria.The Arts Council champions, develops and invests in artistic and cultural experiences that enrich people’s lives. It supports a range of activities across the arts, museums and libraries – from theatre to digital art, reading to dance, music to literature, and crafts to collections. www.artscouncil.org.uk.last_img read more

Apple To Shut Down iTunes After Nearly 20 Years

first_imgAfter turning the market for recorded music upside down nearly 20 years ago, Apple will finally shutter iTunes. In its place, the tech giant will roll out a string of replacement apps for music, TV, and podcasts.Apple Inc. is beginning an initiative that will aim to move the company away from the iPhone as its central cog for its various other products and services. Apple’s new approach to its apps and updated operating systems will be discussed at length at next week’s Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, CA.Among the big changes which Apple is set to preview is the phasing out of one of its staple programs, iTunes. As Bloomberg notes,iTunes has been the way Apple users listen to music, watch movies and TV shows, hear podcasts, and manage their devices for almost two decades. This year, Apple is finally ready to move into a new era. The company is launching a trio of new apps for the Mac – Music, TV, and Podcasts – to replace iTunes. That matches Apple’s media app strategy on iPhones and iPads. Without iTunes, customers can manage their Apple gadgets through the Music app.This news follows Apple’s announcement last week of their first new iPod model in five years.The shuttering of iTunes makes sense in today’s media climate in which the majority of listening has shifted toward various streaming services. iTunes has fallen by the wayside in recent years even for Apple, as the company has been promoting its own streaming service, Apple Music. The new plan for Apple’s streaming software aims to create a more seamless cross-platform streaming experience for users.While it has decreased in popularity in recent years, iTunes was the service that helped spark a sea change in the physical record industry model and shift the zeitgeist toward digital music consumption when it was launched in 2001.More details about the planned shift to new streaming-based apps will be revealed at the WWDC next week.[H/T Bloomberg]last_img read more

World Cup And Olympics Take Brazil Back To School

first_imgBy Dialogo August 10, 2010 I think this idea of promoting the study of another language, will have a favorable affect on the socio-economic reality of the Brazilian people, and consequently the end-users, that is the foreigners that visit Brazil, it is a motivating and creative way of improving the educational and cultural level of a people, that will also bring economic benefits, and have an impact on their standard of living. Congratulations on that initiative. I find the advance work laudable in preparing tourist assistants in dealing with people for such a great sporting-tourist event like the World Cup 2016 will be. With the necessary time they will be able to practice and expand their knowledge in the foreign languages they will learn. Don’t forget that Brazil is a cosmopolitan country so two or three more languages aside from their native language will be very beneficial for them. I applaud such an idea and practice if it is successfully accomplished it will offer much to the tourist and its own citizens and it will be exceptionally welcomed. On its way to hosting the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games, Brazil has to go back to school. As major investments are being made in construction, remodeling sports arenas, infrastructure and public security, Rio de Janeiro’s government also has decided to offer its workforce language courses and tourism training. According to the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE), Brazilians had an average of seven years of schooling in 2008, and about 10% of the population was illiterate. The combined gross enrollment ratio for primary, secondary and higher education in Brazil was 87.5% in 2008, according to the United Nations’ Human Development Report. In contrast, the United Kingdom, which will host the 2012 Olympic Games in London, has a rate of 93%. And in a country where many hardly speak their mother tongue – Portuguese – in a grammatically correct way, speaking a foreign language is a privilege of only a few. However, an initiative by the city’s Rio Tourism Company (Riotur) will offer additional educational opportunities to those involved in the tourism industry. The Rio + Hospitable program will help professionals working in the gastronomy industry (bars, restaurants and kiosks), hotels and tourism (receptionists, travel agents, guides and information desk attendants), transport (taxi and bus drivers) and security (municipal guards and tourist police units). In addition, 18,000 bus drivers and their assistants will be able to study either English or Spanish. The Federation of Enterprises of Passenger Transport of the State of Rio de Janeiro (FETRANSPOR) will start offering the language courses in November. FETRANSPOR’s goal is to benefit all of its 40,000 workers in the state of Rio before 2014. Estácio de Sá University was chosen to hold Rio + Hospitable classes, which initially will be offered from Aug.16 to Oct. 30 to 4,000 professionals working directly or indirectly with tourism. The program received R$1.5 million (US$862,000) in funding from the Ministry of Tourism, and enrollment and attendance are free of charge. The 28-hour course includes group exercises, audiovisual resource training and fieldtrips to touristic spots. Lessons on interpersonal and intergroup relations, communications, ethics, professional behavior, history of the city and protecting the environment also are included in the curricula. “For some students this will be their first opportunity to attend a higher education institution,” says Divina Marcia Santos, coordinator of the non-credit courses at Estácio de Sá. “Often they are required to speak in English or Spanish and are extremely shy to answer,” says Ana Rosa Bonilauri, director of FETRANSPOR’s corporate university. “Our goal is that they learn at least a little English and Spanish, enabling them to conduct simple conversations while guiding and showing tourists Rio’s main spots and the places where the games will take place.” Students will use educational DVDs to study at home, but they also will be helped by Spanish and English instructors as needed. The duration of the course will depend on the student, but FETRANSPOR estimates an average of two months each. At the end of the program, students will take a test to be certified. Nine years of schooling are required to be a bus driver or an assistant in Rio, but transport companies accept applicants who have been in school less time. “Many foreigners take this line (Copacabana),” says fare collector Debora Mendonça de Oliveira. “Just today I had a passenger who couldn’t understand anything I was saying, and I couldn’t understand him either. So, I’ll enjoy the chance of learning another language, not only for the two big events in Rio, but in an attempt to make my life better.” Government officials expect that by 2016 there will be an increased demand for skilled workers. The 2014 World Cup is expected to generate 170,000 jobs – 100,000 of them in tourism, according to the Ministry of Sports. The city of Rio is expected to receive 79,000 foreign tourists for soccer’s biggest event, according to Riotur. For the 2016 Olympic Games, Riotur estimates 196,000 visitors from different countries. “It’s very important to begin now training the professionals who will work directly with the tourists,” says Antonio Pedro Figueira de Mello, Rio’s Secretary of Tourism. “We believe we will create a culture of good service, building a positive image that [shows] the carioca (people from Rio) are the most hospitable [people] in the world.”last_img read more

The Only Version of Little Drummer Boy You’ll Need This Season

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Hey Christmas song lovers. Between classic standards, and Mary J. Blige, you really have no shortage of great holiday music to have wafting through your home.For those who prefer exquisitely-harmonious-and-perfectly-executed sounds of near-divinity, the a capella sensation that is Pentatonix has a little ditty that you should add to your Xmas Playlist. You might have seen it already (I’m admittedly many days behind on this) but for the 7.129 billion minus the 15-or-so million people on the planet who HAVEN’T seen it (minus the non-Christians who probably don’t care, the people without internet, infants, sick people, etc…), it’s kind of a must-listen.(Even though it’s always been a bit of a dumb song. I mean, everyone knows oxen and lambs have no rhythm…)Anyway, we’ve featured Pentatonix before, and it’s pretty stunning how good they are at this sort of thing. To be honest, they are perfectly suited for Christmas music, and their rendition of “Little Drummer Boy” is great evidence to prove it.In fact, if Pentatonix’s Christmas stylings are your cup of peppermint tea, pick up their entire Christmas album here: http://bit.ly/PTXMASDELUXElast_img read more

U.S. doesn’t own American Dream anymore

first_img 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Sam Becker, Cheat SheetCan you name America’s biggest export? While many things probably spring to mind, the answer is something a bit more intangible — culture. Through movies, television shows, music, and all manner of products and services, the American way of life is packed up and shipped across the globe, helping align what we value most with what others around the world do as well.In many ways, what we’re showcasing is the concept of “the American Dream.” It’s a concept that doesn’t have a strict definition, but is typically explained as the ability to improve one’s standing in society through hard work and education, and ultimately share a piece of America’s prosperity with a home, property, and other basic necessities. While the rest of the world becomes more familiar with the concept, a sad reality is settling in on the domestic front.That is, the American Dream is now easier to attain for people who live outside of America than those who live in it. Or, another way to put it is that economic mobility has been stunted in the U.S. As far back as 2004 the progressive think tank The Century Foundation argued that “recent evidence shows that there is much less mobility in the United States than most people assume,” and that “rags to rags and riches to riches are now the norm in this country to a greater degree than in many other developed nations.”It goes on to say: “Our current education system, anti-discrimination laws, and other public policy tools that aim to give the children of poor parents a fair shot at a high income are not getting the job done. We may all believe in the American Dream, but we have a lot of work to do if we are to make that dream a reality.” continue reading »last_img read more

5 financial tools you no longer need

first_img 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Amy FontinelleThanks to creative entrepreneurs who aren’t content with the status quo, banking and shopping have come a long way in the past couple of decades. Younger generations no longer recognize financial tools their parents found indispensable. The Internet and smartphones have given rise to new technology that’s made our lives easier and helped us save money. Here are five financial tools that a few Luddites still cling to, but the rest of us no longer need.1. A CheckbookElectronic banking has made checkbooks virtually obsolete. You can complete almost any financial transaction with a credit or debit card, an ACH or wire transfer, online bill pay, mobile payments and online and social payment systems like PayPal and Venmo. For those on the cutting edge, there’s even bitcoin and other virtual currencies.The new payment methods are faster and more secure than checks, and more and more of us are using them. In 2012, about 15% of noncash transactions were made by check, according to the Federal Reserve, compared to about 50% of noncash transactions in 2003. Now, when people do use checks, they use them for large transactions that average more than $1,400. Debit cards are, by far, our favorite way to pay. continue reading »last_img read more

Governor Wolf Statement on Passage of Legislation to Combat Opioid and Heroin Crisis

first_img October 27, 2016 Governor Wolf Statement on Passage of Legislation to Combat Opioid and Heroin Crisis SHARE Email Facebook Twittercenter_img Results,  Statement,  Substance Use Disorder Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today released a statement on the passage of a package of legislation that will help combat Pennsylvania’s opioid and heroin crisis:“For months, I have traveled the commonwealth and joined Democrats and Republicans, as well as medical professionals, law enforcement, first responders, and other community leaders to discuss ways we can battle the opioid epidemic. Four weeks ago, I addressed a joint session of the General Assembly to outline a set of shared, specific legislative goals that would help us tackle this public health crisis. Together with Republicans and Democrats in both the House and Senate, we made a commitment to prioritize helping the victims of substance use disorder and the communities that have been devastated by this terrible disease.“Today, I applaud the legislature for working with me to pass a package of bills that allows us to take another important step in fighting this issue that plagues all of our communities. I would also like to thank groups like the Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Association of Chain Drug Stores, and the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association for all of their work on these important bills.“We still have more to do, but working together we have now accomplished strengthening the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, restricting the number of pills that can be prescribed to minors or in emergency rooms, establishing education curriculum on safe prescribing, and creating more locations for the drop-off of drugs among other important initiatives.“My administration is also working on implementing opioid treatment centers across the state that will help more than 11,000 individuals. Additionally, I will continue to work on ensuring doctors, prescribers and pharmacists are registered for and properly utilizing the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program, educating the public on the availability of naloxone, and executing the warm hand-off policy that helps individuals receive treatment.“Though some believed Harrisburg could no longer tackle Pennsylvania’s greatest problems, the last several months demonstrate that we can come together to compromise and get things done. While this is not the end of our efforts on this crisis, or many other important issues facing the commonwealth, we have made great progress and I look forward to signing these bills into law.”Below is information on the legislation that passed the General Assembly:SB1367 (Yaw): This bill amends Title 35 (Health and Safety) to establish restrictions on physicians’ ability to prescribe opioids to minors, including limiting prescriptions to seven days and requiring physicians to take a number of steps before issuing the first prescription in a single course of treatment. This bill passed unanimously in the Senate on 9/28/16.SB1368 (Killion): This bill establishes a safe opioid prescribing curriculum in medical colleges and other medical training facilities offering or desiring to offer medical training. The curriculum must include: current, age-appropriate information relating to pain management; alternatives to opioid pain medications; instructions on safe prescribing methods in the event opioids must be prescribed; identification of patients who are at risk for addiction; and, training on managing substance use disorders as chronic diseases.SB1202 (Yaw): This bill amends the Achieving Better Care by Monitoring All Prescriptions Program (ABC-MAP) Act requires continuing education in pain management, addiction and dispensing for prescribers and dispensers. The Governor’s Office successfully passed an amendment that would require prescribers to check the ABC-MAP every time they prescribe an opioid or benzodiazepine. In addition, the Administration’s amendment would require dispensers to input prescription data to the ABC-MAP within 24 hours of dispensing. Current law gives dispensers (who are required to enter information into the ABC-MAP when they dispense an opioid or other controlled substance) 72 hours to log in and enter information.HB1699 (Brown): This bill mandates that hospital emergency departments and urgent care centers may not prescribe opioids in quantities that last more than seven days and they may not write refills for opioid prescriptions.HB 1737 (Maher): This bill would allow all federal, state and local law enforcement entities, hospitals, assisted living facilities, home health care agencies, long-term care nursing facilities, hospice, and commonwealth licensed pharmacies to serve as drop-off locations for any extra, unwanted, or expired prescription drugs or over-the-counter pharmaceutical products.Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolflast_img read more
