New NPA resolution norms to be issued within 34 days RBI

first_imgMumbai: The RBI will issue a new set of guidelines for bad loan resolution, replacing the February 12 circular that was quashed by the Supreme Court, “within the next three-four days”, governor Shaktikanta Das said Thursday. The apex court had on April 2 struck down the stringent RBI circular, issued on February 12, 2018, for resolving bad loans under which a company could be labeled an NPA if it missed repayment for a day banks were asked to find a resolution within 180 days or else it should be sent to bankruptcy courts. But the Supreme Court had declared the circular “ultra vires”.

Very shortly means, in a matter of, may be, next three or four days,” Das told reporters after the second monetary policy wherein he announced the third consecutive rate cut. “It has taken more time than we anticipated because it involved examining various legal issues and wide-ranging stakeholder consultations,” he explained for the delay. Under the February 12 framework, banks were asked to disclose defaults even of a day and have to find a resolution plan within 180 days in case of large account of Rs 2,000 crore and above failing which it would be send for bankruptcy.

GMR Energy, RattanIndia Power, Association of Power Producers, Independent Power Producers Association of India, Sugar Manufacturing Association from Tamil Nadu and a shipbuilding association from Gujarat had moved different courts against the circular. The petitioners had challenged the circular arguing that applying a 180-day limit to all sectors of the economy without going into the special problems faced by each sector would treat “unequals equally” and would be arbitrary and discriminatory, and therefore, violative of Article 14 of the Constitution. The Supreme Court order came in on a petition filed by the central bank challenging the Allahabad High Court order which had asked it and the finance ministry to treat the power sector NPAs separately as their woes were mostly driven by external factors. According to an earlier estimate by rating agency Icra, the total debt impacted due to the February 12 circular is around Rs 3.8 lakh crore across 70 large borrowers of which Rs 2 lakh crore across 34 borrowers are in the power sector. Of that 92 percent of the debt were classified as NPAs by banks as of March 2018 and also made provisions of over 25 -40 percent on these accounts, the rating agency had said.last_img read more

Displaced amid Mosul offensive close to 10000 children in urgent need of

“I met mothers and children who were so relieved to have come out alive; it was clear that they had gone through so much,” said Pernille Ironside, UNICEF’s Chief of Field Operations in Iraq, following a visit to Nargizlia screening site.The Iraqi Government and its international partners are fighting to retake Mosul from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL/Da’esh) while the UN agencies and its partners are stepping up humanitarian assistance for the displaced.Many of the new arrivals come in dusty, exhausted and uncertain about what is going to happen next. Some are even barefoot. UNICEF reaches out to the families, checking on the condition of their children and finding out if any of them are missing. “As the situation continues to unfold, it is important that we remain nimble and that we adapt our response to best assist children and families who have been through so much over these past years,” Ms. Ironside said. Upon arrival, families receive clean drinking water and snacks that include a nutritional supplement for children. Children 6 months to 15 years old are immediately immunized against polio and measles – many of them for the first time in two years – by a UNICEF-supported local government team. Families spend up to half a day in screening sites before being transferred to an emergency camp where they are assigned shelter.There, UNICEF ensures that water, showers and clean latrines are available. Children are screened for malnutrition, and treated accordingly, and UNICEF-supported mobile teams provide psychological care for children.UNICEF is also preparing temporary learning spaces and recreational activities for children in the camps.While many people have fled and are staying in camps, others have chosen to remain in their newly retaken villages. UNICEF is adapting its response to reach all populations in need. In October, UNICEF delivered bottled water and hygiene supplies for more than 1,500 families, and vaccinated children against polio in two newly retaken communities. Conditions for both displaced and local children and families in these communities are very poor, with families in desperate need of clean water and other essential supplies. read more

Students embark on a life of learning at Convocation

More than 3,300 Brock students received their degrees and certificates from the University last week at Spring Convocation, which took place over seven ceremonies from June 5 to June 9.During last week’s ceremonies, the University also celebrated a significant milestone with the graduation of the school’s 75,000th graduate and an A-list celebrity stopped by to watch his mom graduate from Brock.All of the ceremonies were live streamed online and have been archived for future viewing.Throughout the week, President Jack Lightstone spoke to the graduating class about a “life of learning.”“During your studies you will have learned a lot and you will have been prepared for a life of learning,” said Lightstone.“There is a higher sense to a life of learning and education,” he said. “One that demonstrates critical and analytical and synthetic judgment, and discernment that leads to insight, creativity and innovation and engagement in everything that you do, whether it is in your professional, personal, family or communal commitment together with others.”“These are the traits that ground your intellectual, social and moral capacity throughout your lives.”At last week’s Convocation, honorary degrees were presented to Colin Chilvers, the Oscar-winning special effects director, and Edward L. Greenspan, one of Canada’s most renowned defence lawyers.During his Convocation address on June 5, Chilvers spoke to the graduating class about what lies ahead for them in their future careers and endeavours.“You graduates now have the qualifications that you can go out and conquer your world,” said Chilvers. “A world that you will be helping to change, that belongs to you. Only you can make it happen – be positive, plan, network, believe in yourselves and always look at problems as challenges.”“By you earning your degrees you have the firm foundation for a spectacular career,” he said. “And there is absolutely no reason why you could not be the future recipient of your chosen profession’s ultimate achievement award.”Chilvers then hoisted the Oscar he was awarded for special effects work on Superman The Movie (1978), and said:“This is mine. Go get yours.”Edward L. Greenspan receives his honorary degree at the morning Convocation ceremony on June 7During his Convocation address on June 7, Greenspan spoke to the graduating class about the significance of the honorary degree that he was presented with.“Brock University opened in September of 1964 with 127 students in a refurbished factory at the foot of the Niagara Escarpment in St. Catharines,” he added. “Had I finished high school two years later, or if Brock had opened one year earlier, I would have had my degree from Brock in 1967.”“Unlike all of you who got your degree in the normal period of time, I’ve had to wait 45 years until today to say like you that I have a degree from Brock,” he said. “And you know what, it was worth the wait.”Greenspan entertained the Convocation audience with anecdotes about growing up in Niagara and his challenges and experiences as a young criminal lawyer trying to establish himself in Toronto. He also delivered inspiring and humorous quotes from the likes of Mark Twain and Chris Rock.“I could have said something very profound today, but you would have forgotten it in ten minutes,” said Greenspan. “So I chose to give this kind of speech instead, so that in 20 or 25 years from now, when your children ask you what you did on graduation day you can say, I laughed. And for some reason if you didn’t laugh today for my sake say that you did anyway.”“I congratulate you all in your achievements,” he said. “You have so much to hope for and so very much to give. Thank you and good luck.”At Convocation, Faculty Awards for Excellence in Teaching were presented to:* Professor Kevin Kee, Department of History and Centre for Digital Humanities, Faculty of Humanities* Professor Greg Finn, Department of Earth Sciences, Faculty of Mathematics and Science* Professor Darlene Ciuffetelli Parker, Department of Teacher Education, Faculty of Education* Professor Robert Dimand, Department of Economics, Faculty of Social Sciences* Professor Erin Sharpe, Department of Recreation and Leisure Studies, Faculty of Applied Health Sciences* Professor Michael J.

Takeaways failing to provide correct information about allergens are playing fast and

This is a matter of extreme urgency. It’s life and death stuff. These people are playing fast and loose with people’s lives.”He said a major report would be published later this year making the case for legislative change.On New Year’s Day 2017, Megan Lee, 15, died after eating a meal from the Royal Spice takeaway in Oswaldtwistle, Lancs, having made it clear she had a nut allergy when placing her order via Just Eat.The restaurant manager and an employee were jailed last month after being convicted of unlawfully killing Megan through gross negligence.Her parents, Gemma and Adam Lee, have launched a food safety campaign, urging firms to be more aware of allergies.Natasha Ednan-Laperouse, 15, collapsed on board a flight in 2016 after eating a Pret a Manger baguette which contained sesame, to which she was severely allergic. Takeaways are “playing fast and loose” with people’s lives, an MP has warned, after an investigation found they were providing incorrect allergy information.Several restaurants listed on the popular website Just Eat were found to be selling food containing ingredients that could trigger a potentially fatal reaction while insisting to reporters posing as customers with allergies that it was safe to eat.Others were unable to provide basic allergen information, BBC Panorama found.Jon Cruddas, the Labour MP and chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Allergy, said that despite sporadic calls for food label reform, little action had been taken.He said: “Some of these takeaway food outlets are notoriously dangerous.“We find that everyone reacts to the appalling tragedies that take place and then it goes quiet. Jon Cruddas, the Labour MP, has called for legislative change Natasha Ednan-Laperouse, who died after eating a Pret baguetteCredit:Family Handout The Panorama investigation found evidence of multiple takeaways providing false and potentially life threatening allergen information.Tong Feng House in Greater Manchester assured an undercover reporter on the phone that its chicken chow mein did not contain wheat, yet it was found to have a high wheat content.Similarly, Mama Mia Pizza in Birmingham sold a burger that it said did not contain wheat yet was found to contain gluten.Another restaurant, Karo’s Pizza in Liverpool, was unable to answer a direct question about whether its cheese burger would be safe to eat by someone with a wheat allergy.Just Eat, the biggest online food delivery app in the UK, does not require restaurants to provide allergen information on its app or website.The company told Panorama it was “concerned to learn about the individual restaurants not providing accurate information.”“We launched an immediate investigation and have already offered further support and training,” it said.Karo’s Pizza and Mama Mia Pizza said staff did not understand the questions they were asked and both said they display allergy information in store.Tong Feng House told the programme, broadcast on BBC1 tonight, that a new staff member provided the incorrect information and they are retraining their team.The investigation also found the Just Eat app listed more than 100 takeaways with zero hygiene ratings.

AK Whats it like to drive a 54000 pound DOT plow truck

first_imgA view from the front seat of a DOT plow truck as it makes its way south on Egan Drive. (Photo by Adelyn Baxter/KTOO)It’s winter, and that usually means plenty of snow and ice.Listen nowEvery winter, many of us take it for granted that when we wake after a big snow fall, the roads will be clear and ready for the commute. But who do we have to thank for that?I wanted to find out.I arrived at the Department of Transportation’s maintenance bay off Glacier Highway at 4 a.m. Snow was falling and four huge trucks idled in the parking lot, ready to head out for the early shift.I was about to live the dream of every truck-loving little kid. Before this assignment, my only experience with plow driving came courtesy of “The Simpsons.”You know the jingle: “Call Mr. Plow, that’s my name. That name again is Mr. Plow!”I’m sure the real thing isn’t as glamorous as Homer makes it seem. Still, with my snow boots and thermos full of hot chocolate, I may have been too excited.“Do you get a lot of people asking for rides?” I asked Richard Asplund, the DOT plow driver who let me tag along.“No, we don’t get a lot of requests,” Asplund said, laughing. “I have a daughter and no, there’s no way I’d bring her out here.”I climbed into the front seat of Asplund’s truck and we set off into the early morning darkness. Egan Drive was almost empty as we fell into a diagonal formation with the other three trucks. Each plow picks up the snow leftover by the previous one, gradually pushing all of it onto the right shoulder in a flurry of white.“The snow’s real light today, so as long as we’re not going too fast, we shouldn’t blast any mailboxes or garbage cans over,” Asplund said. “But if it’s wet snow and there’s a lot of it, it’s a real hazard.”Ahead of us, graders worked the intersections clearing berms.Asplund grew up on Prince of Wales Island. He came to Juneau two years ago from Petersburg. He got started as an equipment operator in the logging industry, but started working for DOT after the jobs dried up.“So there’s really a lot going on at once,” I observed. “In addition to driving and watching where your other trucks are, you’re also operating the plow level with this joystick?”“Yes, and the belly blade and the sander,” Asplund said. Coordinating all of those controls takes practice. Asplund said most crew members have worked around equipment for a long time. That helps.The biggest hazard for drivers comes when regular drivers try to pass when they’re plowing in formation. The trucks are heavy to begin with and the extra winter equipment makes stopping quickly impossible.At one point, a pickup started to pass us on the right with nowhere to go, since there were two more trucks ahead of us.“It’s just more things I have to watch and be careful for,” Asplund said. “And he’s not gaining anything, you know. If he would just stay back he would be much better off.”For plow drivers like Asplund, the day begins well before 4 a.m. Juneau’s plow team works holidays and weekends, depending on the schedule. Asplund said they rarely take vacation or sick days in the winter. They need to be ready to work whenever conditions call for it.“Last year we worked 10 hour days,” Asplund said. “It just depends on how many people we have and how many shifts we have to cover.”Drivers sometimes get called in on their days off in the event of a snowstorm that goes on for multiple days, Asplund said.The rest of the year, Asplund is a foreman on DOT’s chip-sealing crew; he travels around the Southeast fixing roads.“It’s always something different, you’re always learning something,” Asplund said. “There’s a lot of things I like about it.”After a few hours, Asplund dropped me back at the garage and immediately headed back out. He continued plowing until noon, when the next shift took over.Later on, I sat down with Southeast District Superintendent Scott Gray to get the bigger picture on plowing.Just in the Southeast district, weather varies widely depending on where you are. Gray travels frequently to smaller communities where there may only be a small team covering miles of road.“Haines and Skagway will get a lot more than we do. And then of course we have Hoonah and Gustavus that are kind of out there, and they get quite a bit of snow too,” Gray said. “And then in Sitka, we just had our first snow in Sitka on Jan. 9.”Gray said he also fields complaints from the public, usually related to berms in driveways or occasional mailbox casualties. He said he would like to be able to take more people out in plow trucks to see what it’s like.Now, when I’m shoveling the berm in front of my driveway or stuck behind a slow plow truck, I won’t feel the urge to shake my fist. Plowing isn’t an easy job, and I’m grateful that people like Asplund and Gray are out there making the roads safer for the rest of us.last_img read more

Can courts force action on climate change Sixteen young Alaskans hope so

first_imgThe young plaintiffs in Sinnok v State of Alaska gathered with their attorneys and supporters outside the Nesbett Courthouse in downtown Anchorage after oral arguments on Monday, April 30. The state is asking the court to dismiss their lawsuit. (Photo by Rachel Waldholz / Alaska’s Energy Desk)An Anchorage judge heard arguments Monday on whether a lawsuit brought by sixteen young Alaskans suing the state over climate change should advance.The plaintiffs in the case, Sinnok v. State of Alaska, argue the state is violating their constitutional rights by failing to limit greenhouse gas emissions – and they’re asking the courts to intervene.But the state says climate change policies must be decided by the legislature and the executive branch, not the courts.Listen nowAbout a dozen of the young plaintiffs, ranging in age from elementary school to their early 20s, sat in the front row of the small courtroom during the hour-long arguments.They watched as Assistant Attorney General Seth Beausang, arguing for the state, asked the court to dismiss the case entirely. Beausang said past court rulings have established that only the elected branches of government can balance the impacts of climate change against other interests, like economic development.“The court said that weighing all those interests was a policy decision entrusted to the political branches, and not to the courts,” Beausang said.That ruling came in a similar climate change case, Kanuk v State of Alaska, dismissed by the Alaska Supreme Court in 2014.That case and this new one were both brought with the help of an Oregon-based nonprofit, Our Children’s Trust, which has filed legal actions on behalf of young people across the country demanding action on climate change.The young plaintiffs in this case say that in the years since the 2014 Supreme Court ruling, Alaska has implemented a de facto climate policy by continuing to encourage activities like oil and gas production. Attorney Andrew Welle of Our Children’s Trust, argued that this policy violates the plaintiffs’ constitutional rights, requiring the courts to step in.“The state’s climate and energy policy is causing catastrophic harm to Alaska’s climate system and endangering plaintiff’s lives and liberties and their very futures,” Welle said. “These claims are squarely within the authority of the court.”Bob Shavelson is with the environmental group Cook Inletkeeper. His five- and eight-year-old daughters are named as plaintiffs in the lawsuit. Standing in the hallway outside the courtroom after the hearing, he said the case is about much more than which branch of government is responsible for policymaking.“I think it’s one of the most important lawsuits, if not in the past decade in Alaska, in the state’s entire history,” Shavelson said. “We’re really talking about the future of Alaska here.”Alaska Superior Court Judge Gregory Miller will decide whether the case can move forward. Attorneys for both sides said they expect a ruling within the next six months.last_img read more

This brings ease and convenience in the economical storage and transmission of these digital images, as the need to file, retrieve or transport the physical films is eliminated.With ever-increasing costs and price sensitivity, the need to reduce costs is as important as ever. PACS vendors are trying to provide scalable, high-quality systems with flexible configurations while providing cheaper hardware and software support. This is achieved by shifting data from a traditional onsite storage and archiving system to the cloud storage principle.Cloud computing, in lay terms, is similar to accessing one’s e-mail from Gmail or Yahoo! Mail, as all of the data is remotely stored at a secure location, without worrying about the storage capacity or failure of a local system. The data can be tailored as per the needs of the end-user from any location and through any system after the provision of the appropriate password. The first large-scale PACS installation was at the University of Kansas in 1982. PACS technology today has evolved from storing and archiving solutions, to department-based solutions and enterprise-wide image management solutions. PACS system evolution is reflected by the growth in the market value, from $679.4 million in 2009 to a projected value of $1.35 billion by 2016, with a compound annual growth rate of 10.3 percent in Europe.The Strengths of Cloud-Based PACSManufacturers are realizing benefits of this technology and slowly incorporating it into their new-generation radiology information system (RIS) or PACS system by software as a service (SAAS) model. Thus, there is an immediate reduction in the cost of the storage and archiving for the hospital, clinic or imaging center, since there is no longer a need for investing in these areas. Absence of an onsite data center reduces the ancillary investments that would be associated in running it, such as the emergency power backup or uninterruptible power supply (UPS), as well as the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. An offsite data center managed by the vendor puts the responsibility of data backup, disaster protection and recovery responsibility on it.There is a further reduction in overall costs, since technology management for IT systems is outsourced to IT experts. With the absence of many systems, valuable square footage is saved that can be utilized by the hospital or clinic to set up more beds and accommodate more patients.Due to the presence of hardware and system components at the vendor’s data center, there should be a greater degree of responsiveness. The response times for maintenance services can be drafted into the initial contract with the vendor at the time of purchase, ensuring appropriate system redundancy in order to fulfill the terms and conditions. This can be a huge bonus for facilities that lack dedicated IT personnel.PACS solutions provide flexibility to physicians and radiologists to access medical records (even from systems other than the hospital’s) while they are away from the hospital, with the only requirement being an Internet connection. Considering the significant reduction in investment with respect to new systems and the workload of the radiologist and the PACS administrator, such cloud systems allow professional healthcare experts to concentrate their main attention on medical cases to provide better care to patients.Apart from economic benefits and provision of better quality care, PACS also can help to reduce the carbon footprint. With the reduction in the overall number of hardware equipment pieces, there should be a lower amount of energy demanded in the production, running, cooling and, ultimately, disposing of these systems.With lower energy demands, there also would be a reduction in the relative carbon dioxide emission, helping the organization as a whole adopt a “greener” stance in its operation.Challenges With a Cloud SystemDespite the benefits, the adoption of cloud-based systems is not easy. The presence of a reliable, high-speed, bandwidth Internet connection is the most important factor when considering such systems, as it is the operational backbone. Hence, it is important that the Internet connection have several redundancies. Speed and bandwidth should be considered when setting up such a system, as the speed of accessing and downloading medical images from the online archive should be within acceptable limits, even when several different users are accessing the “data cloud” simultaneously.Cloud-based PACS with offsite data centers hold data security of utmost importance. Strict third-party checks and audit trials are required in order to ensure that these data centers are secure in storing medical data and capable of maintaining confidentiality. The medical data for any patient can be subdivided into three categories, explained below:• General details — This comprises general patient details, such as name, age, sex, blood group, etc. This also may include highly confidential details, such as medical insurance, bank account and personal home address information.• Medical images and surgery data — This includes medical images that might be taken at pre-operative or post-operative times when the patient was admitted to the hospital.• Research data — In some cases, the patient might be suffering from some rare and peculiar symptoms currently under analysis.  In this example, the patient may have a medical condition that requires consent for research.  These consent documents would be stored under medical research data.Currently, hospitals and healthcare providers may be interested in the cloud-based systems; however only medical images, surgery data and research data are uploaded onto an online data cloud. The patient’s highly sensitive general details are mostly kept in onsite data storage devices. Despite using the modern Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) enforcement rules and Health-Level 7 (HL7) transmission protocols, there is still a level of fear and apprehension when putting medical data in the cloud.For hospitals interested in such systems, it might not be possible currently to transfer large amounts of data or even to change their cloud service provider. Such systems are still in their infancy, with business models yet to be developed on a larger scale.  Thus, there is apprehension about adopting a new system, such as cloud-based PACS.There might also be problems in terms of bureaucratic barriers in some countries, as it is illegal to actually send medical data outside the premises of the hospital or transmit the medical data to individuals not employed by the hospital. Thus, there is a huge barrier that does not allow the data to be stored at the offsite data center that may not always be within the country, with the concept of outsourcing some of the hospital IT duties.Future Opportunities Include Physician CollaborationAs with any new technology, there are initially some road blocks and general inertia of the market towards adopting something that is completely new. Even though the concept of cloud computing might still be in its infancy and is not without flaws, it does promise many gains in the long run for healthcare service providers as well as patients.Some of the players in the market, such as Carestream Health, Candelis and Securad, to name a few, have already started offering cloud-based PACS services. With the evolution and widespread adoption of cloud-based services, it would be possible to set up a global forum wherein physicians from across the world using those services could share their experiences and, to a certain extent, patient symptoms. This would help to provide a better consult and obtain a third opinion on a particular medical case. (It would be similar to the Vue Cloud Community already offered by Carestream Health in its Vue cloud-based PACS.)Another consideration are the companies that provide teleradiology services by outsourcing medical images after the consult of the primary radiologist to a secondary radiologist sitting on the other side of the globe. This reduces the workload on an individual radiologist and also could improve the level of patient care, as a tired radiologist in the United States could share results of a particular medical case in the evening with a radiologist in India. Owing to the time difference between the two countries (night time in the United States is still daytime in India), an alert and fresh radiologist could be better able to read a medical image than a tired one. Hence, it is necessary to properly evaluate the needs of the hour and take a pragmatic approach towards the slow and steady adoption of cloud-based PACS systems.  Videos | Radiology Business | August 02, 2019 VIDEO: Key Topics for Radiology Administrators at AHRA 2019 Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) President … read more Feature | February 01, 2012 | Rohan Panda, Healthcare Research Associate, Frost & Sullivan Ins and Outs of Cloud-Based PACS One of the newest developments in PACS systems is a move into the cloud.

Cuban artist pushes boundary between art and politics and pays a price

first_imgRelated posts:As talks with US begin, Cubans anticipate changes in their lives Cuba pardons more than 3,500 prisoners ahead of Pope Francis visit Cuba’s Raul Castro to visit Mexico next week Obama promises human rights talk with Castro HAVANA, Cuba – It was probably inevitable, given the trajectory of her career, that Cuban artist Tania Bruguera’s creative vision would collide some day with her country’s less-expansive political reality.From a young age, Bruguera, 46, won international acclaim as an irreverent, barrier-breaking performance artist. She smeared the floor with pig’s blood to make a point about sexual assault. She stripped naked and ate dirt in tribute to Cuba’s vanished indigenous tribes. During one performance in Colombia, she circulated trays of cocaine — real cocaine — among the audience, inviting viewers to try it. They did.By comparison, what landed Bruguera in trouble with communist authorities seems rather mild. Soon after the Dec. 17 announcement that the United States and Cuba would restore diplomatic relations, Bruguera flew to the island from Europe and tried to organize a free-speech forum. The transgressive part was the location: Havana’s Plaza of the Revolution.It was meant as a challenge, she said — a test to see how much Cuba was willing to change as part of its new relationship with the United States.The event never happened. Before she could reach the plaza, Bruguera was arrested, along with more than two dozen supporters. Since then she has been detained four more times and has been barred from leaving the country while facing charges of disturbing the public order, resisting arrest and inciting criminal behavior.Cuban authorities “are trying to depict me as a rebel without a cause,” Bruguera said in an interview, her arms still bruised after being hauled off by police with members of the Ladies in White opposition group after their weekly protest march.“I am a rebel, but one with a cause, and it’s one that they have given me: the fight on behalf of freedom of expression and against political hatred,” she said. Journalists and dissidents wait for Cuban performance artist Tania Bruguera at Revolution Square in Havana, on Dec. 30, 2014. Bruguera had the idea of setting a public gallery at Revolution Square in which any Cuban citizen could freely express during a minute, in a challenge to the communist government. The activity, promoted through social networks, did not take place. Adalberto Roque/AFPCuban authorities do not see Bruguera as a causeless rebel so much as a calculated provocateur, backed by anti-Castro forces abroad, who is swooping in for a political stunt. Soon after she arrived in late December, Bruguera said, security officials took her aside to issue a warning about her plans for the open-mike event.“They told me: ‘You think you’re coming back here to create another Maidan [the square in Kiev where Ukraine’s 2013-2014 revolution began], but we’re not going to let you.’ ”Bruguera’s treatment also suggests that communist authorities intend to send a signal to other Cubans who are thinking of returning home to take advantage of new economic opportunities and easing tensions with the United States. Cuba is willing to welcome them back as entrepreneurs, sure, but not as dissident activists.Bruguera, who has lived most of the past two decades in the United States and Europe, says she never emigrated from Cuba. In recent years, as she worked to organize an immigrant political party in Paris and joined the Occupy Wall Street movement in New York, her creative work increasingly smudged the line between art and activism.The former — in particular the kind that takes place in museums and movie theaters — has considerable latitude in contemporary Cuba. The latter, when it occurs in the street, does not.In 1961, two months after the Bay of Pigs invasion, Fidel Castro issued the famous dictum that would lay out his view of artistic freedom: “Within the Revolution, anything goes; against the Revolution, nothing.” Cuban artists have been trying to figure out what that means pretty much ever since.The issue is not an academic one. Art is big business in Cuba, and one of the careers that allows young people to earn income independently, profiting from a global fascination with the island that is as strong as ever, particularly among collectors in the United States.Over the years, as censorship eased, art also became an outlet for expression in a country that doesn’t allow traditional activism. Young Cubans who seethe at their government’s political controls or Internet restrictions can’t protest in the street, but they can produce dark, brooding works of art that dramatize or satirize Cuban reality. And international collectors love the stuff.Bruguera, who earned a master’s degree at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and went on to teaching positions in the United States and France, doesn’t make objects that look nice on a coffee table or complement the drapes. Her art, by nature, is intangible and somewhat unpredictable.And because Bruguera wants to blur the line between art and political activism, it can also make it difficult to discern where her “performance” starts and ends.Bruguera’s legal ordeal over the past six months serves a broader artistic goal, she says, in which the Cuban government has been an all-too-willing participant in her attempt to probe the boundaries of expression at what she sees as a pivotal moment in her country’s history.“All of this is a performance,” she said. “It is unfolding as events occur.”The government prefers theater, she said. “It likes having a script that can be acted out by a cast of characters it creates.”In contrast, she said, “performance is a space for spontaneity, where human beings can be themselves, instead of acting out roles.”Like Cuban authorities, critics of the Obama administration do not view Bruguera’s case as an abstract exercise in aesthetics. Her arrest is proof, they say, that Cuban President Raúl Castro isn’t opening up at all and that Obama’s policies have emboldened him to be more repressive.“We’re not naive,” read a statement by the president of Cuba’s Fine Arts Association on the day of her arrest. “The meaning of this performance isn’t going to be interpreted as a work of art. It is a political provocation.” Her goal, the statement said, was the same as that pursued by Castro’s opponents, who, it added, helped promote her appearance.“The act has no other aim than to undermine the negotiations that have given hope to many human beings, above all Cuba’s 11 million people,” the statement read.Bruguera, who identifies herself as a leftist and calls Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., her “favorite politician,” insists it is not her intention to embarrass the Obama administration or give fodder to its critics. She said her goals are wholly related to Cuba’s uncertain future. She wants a new law protecting freedom of speech and to open a center for art and activism named for the late political theorist Hannah Arendt.Bruguera’s most recent arrests occurred in the middle of Cuba’s biggest art festival — the Havana Biennial — with many of the world’s leading gallery owners and collectors in town. Some supporters urged a boycott and gathered protest signatures on her behalf, but ripples from Bruguera’s case haven’t reached very far beyond Cuba’s arts scene.Some artists and critics said they have been confused about her goals. They don’t want to see Bruguera treated as a criminal, but they said they are puzzled as to what the avant-garde artist was trying to accomplish.“I never saw Tania as a political activist,” said Cristina Vives, an art curator and historian who worked with Bruguera earlier in her career and considers her “brilliant.”“She didn’t need it to be effective as an artist,” Vives saod. “And she has always been one of the most effective artists I know of.”Asked if she viewed her work as “against the Revolution” and beyond the boundaries vaguely established by Castro in 1961, Bruguera answered with a question.“What is the Revolution today?” she asked. “I think the negotiations with the United States have created a crisis of identity and a need to redefine what ‘revolution’ means.”© 2015, The Washington Post Facebook Commentslast_img read more
