Photo by Manuel VasonThe Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts announced today the 2017 recipients of its Artist Project Grants, an initiative in its second year which seeks to further Mike Kelley’s philanthropic work and honor his legacy by supporting innovative projects with artists at Los Angeles nonprofit institutions and organizations.Benefitting both artists and organizations, the grants support compelling and inventive projects in any medium, particularly work that is lesser-known or has proven difficult to make or fund. This year’s grantees are Human Resources/356 S. Mission Rd.; The Industry; La Plaza de Cultura y Artes; REDCAT (Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater); The Society for the Activation of Social Space through Art and Sound (SASSAS); University Art Museum, California State University, Long Beach; Vincent Price Art Museum, and Pasadena Arts Council/Volume.“These artists and organizations exemplify the ambitious and imaginative spirit of this grant,” said Mary Clare Stevens, Executive Director of the Foundation. “From new works—such as Liz Glynn’s sculptural stage set of fire and steel—to the first-ever performance of the late composer James Tenney’s magnum opus, to critical examinations of art history, the projects reflect the remarkable scope and variety of artistic and curatorial practices in Los Angeles.”The recipients include a diverse range of small and mid-size organizations, which will highlight a mix of individual practices, collaborations and group exhibitions. Regeneración: Three Generations of Revolutionary Ideology, a research-driven exhibition at the Vincent Price Museum, explores three generations of Los Angeles artists engaged in the exchange of revolutionary and anarchist ideas between the U.S. and Mexico and will also feature new works by four artists.“It is especially poignant at this moment in American and Mexican history to place Los Angeles’s lineage of social movements into context,” said participating Regeneración artist Patricia Valencia. “The grant will extend both the cultural scholarship and grassroots awareness of these histories. By realizing the project at the museum, which is part of East Los Angeles College, and in a predominantly Mexican-American community, I hope that the question of ‘What comes next?’ will be raised to a new generation.”Conceptual artist lauren woods uses history as a lens through which to view the social politics of the present. In her hybrid media projects, which incorporate film, video, sound, public intervention, and site-specific work, she creates ethno-fictive documents and explores how traditional monument-making can be translated into new models of commemoration. Her exhibition at the University Art Museum, California State University, Long Beach will be part of a long-term focus conceived of by the newly appointed director of the museum, Kimberli Meyer, which concentrates on artists practicing outside hegemonic systems.“When the news came in that this vision would be supported by the Mike Kelley Foundation, I felt tangible relief to know that despite the radical, almost overnight shift in the political climate of our country, there are people and institutions in the arts—allies—willing to not only continue to engage and call attention to the sociopolitical issues that my practice is deeply invested in addressing, but also to push forth an agenda that commits to the protracted struggle to end structural injustice,” noted woods.The 2017 cohort of grantees were selected through a competitive application process by a panel of artists, curators, and art writers, which included Charles Gaines, Gene Moreno, Frances Stark, Astria Suparak, and Jan Tumlir. Totaling $319,000, the grants cover project-related expenses, allow for a modest portion of the organization’s overhead costs, and recognize the participating artists with a dedicated fee. The grant-funded projects will take place throughout 2017–2018, and the Foundation will share updates on performances and exhibitions on its website.“When Mike Kelley established the Foundation in 2007, he aimed to encourage expansiveness and fearlessness in all disciplines. As funding for the arts is shrinking, this charge is more vital than ever. It is an honor to be able to support and celebrate the artists and the arts organizations that will present these remarkable projects,” said Stevens.For organizations interested in applying for the next round of Artist Project Grants, updated information for the 2018 cycle will be posted later this spring on the Foundation’s website (last year’s guidelines remain there for reference only).For more information about Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts, visit www.mikekelleyfoundation.org.

NZ Herald 7 October 2014If you’re keen to get married but just can’t find the right person, one young woman could have provided the solution.Having been single for almost six years, Grace Gelder decided to marry herself.The photographer and filmmaker told The Guardian that the ceremony was a way of recognising and cementing the powerful relationship she had established with herself while not involved in a relationship.“I’d been essentially single for almost six years and built up this brilliant relationship with myself. Nevertheless, I was aware of getting into a rut, where a relationship with someone else seemed like too much hard work,” Gelder said.“So I really wanted to pay tribute to this adventurous period of self-discovery but, at the same time, look forward to a new phase.”Gelder said she had been inspired by a Björk song called Isobel: “[I] have a strong recollection of when I was 18 at university and studying performance art, hearing that line in a Björk song called Isobel: ‘My name’s Isobel, married to myself,’ and thinking, crazy as that sounds, I totally get that.http://m.nzherald.co.nz/lifestyle/news/article.cfm?c_id=6&objectid=11338371

Ireland, who had made two substitute appearances in the previous two Barclays Premier League games, played for the first hour before being withdrawn. Hughes hopes he can go on to make a big impact this season but is not planning for him to start against Norwich on Sunday. Hughes said: “He is not ready yet but he is getting there.” Hughes made seven changes against the Wirral side but his new ethos was much in evidence. The Welshman has already earned plaudits for the fluid passing style he has introduced at the Britannia Stadium and his side again played it with confidence. The downside was a lack of cutting edge that they could have paid for had the mostly outplayed Tranmere taken advantage of the second-half chances they eventually created for Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro and Chris Atkinson. Nevertheless, Hughes was pleased with another positive performance and happy to still be in the competition. Stoke will now travel to Birmingham, who knocked out holders Swansea, in the fourth round. Hughes said: “We want to progress. It is important we show respect to the competition. I have got a good group of players who would like to go all the way. “It will still be difficult because there are some quality sides left in the competition but if we keep going and keep playing in the manner we are, who knows how far we can go? “It is all about performance and the levels we are hitting. We continue to look a really accomplished side at the moment. That is pleasing. “We are not allowing standards to drop and when I make changes the guys who come in are ready to take their chance and show me what they can do.” Stoke boss Mark Hughes believes Stephen Ireland’s match-winning performance against Tranmere was just a tantalising glimpse of what he is capable of. Ireland is hoping to revive his career on a season-long loan at Stoke after falling out of favour at Aston Villa. The 27-year-old, who enjoyed his best times under Hughes at Manchester City, had not played since January prior to joining the Potters this month and his goal at Tranmere was his first since December 2011. Hughes said: “Stephen has come in and everybody can see he is an intelligent footballer. “He understands the game and how to affect the game in a positive manner. “He took up some great positions in and around the opposition box and when he gets in good areas he will finish. I thought he was excellent. “But we are still trying to get him up to speed. “He has missed a lot of senior football. He has not had a lot of game time and it is going to take him a little bit of time to get up to the level I know he is capable of. “But you saw in the amount of time he had that he is going to be a good player for us.” Ireland marked his first start for the Potters with the opening goal of a 2-0 win over the League One side in the Capital One Cup. With Peter Crouch’s second not coming until the fourth minute of injury time at Prenton Park – with what proved to be the final kick of the game – it was a strike that effectively secured Stoke’s place in the last 16 of the competition.

According to Sanral, accounting and financial management of tolled and non-tolled roads were separate because toll fees were not used to cross-subsidise non-tolled national roads, which were funded by government. “People are responding well to the disruptions due to major road works on such a large scale. We are confident that the ultimate result will be worth the wait for motorists.” Alli explained that the new Gauteng freeway network would be operating on the “user pays” principle after October 2010, with an Open Road Tolling System requiring each vehicle to carry an electronic tag. Briefing investors in Pretoria last week, Sanral CEO Nazir Alli said the agency remained on track to raise the funds needed to undertake its current programme, of which much of the civil works are scheduled to be completed by October 2010. 2 February 2009 The agency is responsible for the design, maintenance, operations and rehabilitation of South Africa’s tolled and non-tolled national roads. The country’s network of national roads currently stands at about 16&nbps;170 kilometres, and Sanral is responsible for extending the network to 20&nbps;000 kilometres by 2010. It raised more than R4.6-billion last year to fund current projects, including the major Gauteng Freeway Improvement Programme (GFIP), which will cost an estimated R20-billion. Apart from the freeways in Gauteng, Sanral’s capital investment programme includes the N2 Tsitsikama Toll Road in the Eastern Cape; the N17 East road extension in Gauteng province; the N1 South and R30 Bloemfontein-Kroonstad road; the N1 Polokwane bypass in Limpopo province; and the Marianhill extension and Dube Trade Port interchange, both in Durban. “Economic conditions are certainly tougher than they were when we began issuing debt to finance the major projects now underway,” he said. “However, indications are that investors will continue to be assured by our good market ratings and track record of efficiently maintaining the network and settling debt.” Source: BuaNews The South African National Roads Agency Limited (Sanral) is to raise a further R25-billion in debt finance for upgrades and freeway construction projects over the next two years. He said he also expected the agency to complete its projects on budget, although close attention was being paid to the price of bitumen, one variable aspect that was influenced by the oil price determined by international markets. “Tolls will be deducted each time a vehicle passes under one of 38 overhead gantries set about 10 kilometres apart across the Gauteng Freeway System,” he said. “Sanral envisages that tags would be linked to bank accounts, or could be recharged at retail outlets, or through the internet.” Gauteng freeway improvement programme Alli told investors that the Gauteng freeway improvement programme was proceeding well and largely according to plan: “In any road project, there are always weather issues. However, the recent heavy rains in Gauteng have not caused any major setbacks,” he said. Alli was confident that there would be solid participation from capital markets in the company’s debt offerings. Good market ratings

From terminating his contract with Sporting Lisbon due to an attack on players and fans by a group of 50 fans to facing the 2010 World Cup Winner, Spain in the first match for Group B and coming out with a draw due to a blistering performance by none other than Cristiano Ronaldo. Even though he conceded 3 goals all of them were pretty tough to save.(Credits: BeINSPORTS)He also signed a four-year contract with Premier League newcomers, Wolverhampton Wanderers yesterday which is subject to International Clearance.Wolves are delighted to confirm @selecaoportugal and @Sporting_CP number one Rui Patricio has joined the club on a four-year deal. #BemVindoRui🐺 pic.twitter.com/tGUQUXQICX— Wolves (@Wolves) June 18, 2018It will be interesting to see how the Portuguese International fares in the Premier League with a new team who have just been promoted to the top tier after a 6-year absence.What do you think about Rui Patricio’s move?

Obviously, those 2018 youth players won’t be old enough in 2019 to figure into the senior team’s World Cup fortunes. But the lack of earlier success could suggest a down period coming for the Americans in upcoming World Cups. At least, that’s assuming youth-level results are predictive of future senior-team outcomes. But is that true?Fortunately for the U.S., the relationship there is only a moderate one. To measure this, I’m using a system called “Dynasty Points,” which I’ve used before to track a team’s postseason success over multiple years. In each tournament, you get 1,000 points for winning the whole thing, 500 for finishing second, 250 for losing in the semifinals (with a 100-point bonus for finishing third), 115 for losing in the quarters and 40 for losing in the Round of 16 (when applicable).2These values are roughly scaled to reflect how many teams you needed to beat out in order to reach a given level of the tournament, while keeping the value of winning at a constant 1,000. If a team’s performance at the youth level was cause for concern or optimism for later iterations of the senior team, we’d expect a strong relationship between World Cup dynasty points and dynasty points produced by the youth teams in the decade between five and 15 years before.But looking at the 2007, 2011 and 2015 World Cups (and weighting by the number of youth tournaments that led up to each — meaning 2015 had more of a sample, since the era of two youth tournaments didn’t begin until 2008), the correlation coefficient between youth performance and World Cup success is 0.49. That’s not a nonexistent relationship by any means, but it also indicates that about three-quarters of the variation between countries in World Cup success is explained by something other than youth-level results in the years beforehand.Broadly speaking, if a team consistently finishes well in the Under-17 and Under-20 events, it tends to do better at the World Cup as well. Many of the most successful youth-level countries — such as Germany, the U.S. and Japan — are also among the best World Cup teams. But the relationship isn’t perfect. According to Dynasty Points, North Korea is the most successful youth-level team since 2002, winning four tournaments and finishing second on two other occasions. Yet North Korea has advanced out of the group stage just once in its World Cup history.3The North Korean team was banned from the 2015 World Cup after a doping investigation. Meanwhile, Norway and Sweden have been incredibly successful at the World Cup level (they rank third and fifth in all-time Dynasty Points, respectively) and have combined to advance out of the group stage of a youth tournament just twice since 2002.The U.S.’s own history is instructive in the imperfect relationship between youth results and World Cup outcomes. Although it dominated junior tournaments from 2002 to 2008 — winning two events, finishing second in another and never losing before the semifinals — it has also made two World Cup Finals and won Olympic gold with the senior squad since its ongoing youth-level dry spell began in 2010. 2012U-20 WCYouth64.51000– 2015World CupSenior76.51000– 1999World CupSenior66.01000– 2002U-19 WCYouth66.01000– 1995World CupSenior64.5350– 2011World CupSenior64.0500– YearTournamentTypeMatchesWins*Dynasty Points 2008U-20 WCYouth65.01000– 1991World CupSenior66.01000– 2004U-19 WCYouth65.0350– 2010U-20 WCYouth42.5115– 2014U-20 WCYouth42.0115– 2003World CupSenior65.0350– 2012U-17 WCYouth32.00 2016U-20 WCYouth63.0250– 2006U-20 WCYouth64.0250– Is the USWNT’s youth-level talent pipeline drying up?Results for the United States at both the World Cup and youth-level tournaments Wherever it lands in the upcoming World Cup draw — which will be held in Paris on Saturday at noon ET — the United States Women’s National Team will go into next year’s tournament in its familiar perch as favorites. The U.S. has been the most dominant team in the history of the event (which began in 1991), capturing the Cup three times and winning more matches (33) than any other country. Along the way, Team USA has given us multiple generations of superstars, the latest of which includes names like Carli Lloyd, Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe and Tobin Heath — all of whom figure to represent the Stars and Stripes in France next summer.But this won’t quite be the same roster as the one last seen hoisting the World Cup in 2015 (or even the one America sent to the 2016 Olympics). Likely gone are goalkeeper Hope Solo, forward Abby Wambach, midfielder Lauren Holiday and defenders Meghan Klingenberg, Christie Rampone and Ali Krieger, among others. And while the U.S. has perpetually been able to retool on the fly with the emergence of even greater young talent than before (remember Morgan’s breakout performance as a 22-year-old at the 2011 World Cup?), there’s growing concern that the next generation won’t be as ready to carry the torch.Specifically, the U.S. results at the youth level — including both the Under-17 and Under-20 Women’s World Cups — have been pretty mediocre in recent years. The U.S. didn’t advance out of its group in either tournament this year and has advanced past the quarterfinals just twice at the youth level since 2008.1That year, Morgan helped power the U.S. to the championship at the Under-20 Cup with this ridiculous goal. 2008U-17 WCYouth63.5500– 2016U-17 WCYouth31.00 2007World CupSenior64.5350– 2018U-17 WCYouth31.00 2018U-20 WCYouth31.50 It bears mentioning that the 2012 Under-20 squad also won gold, so the U.S.’s recent youth results haven’t been completely devoid of success. And it’s also important to note that the senior team can poach promising young stars from the youth level, inherently limiting the U.S.’s performance in U-17 and (especially) U-20 tournaments in favor of bolstering the main roster.It’s true that next summer’s team will be asking more of some players who hadn’t taken on full-fledged starring roles in previous major tournaments. But a number of those have drawn rave reviews during friendlies and qualifiers with the national team this year, including Lindsey Horan and Crystal Dunn, both of whom also logged time on the 2016 Olympic team. And forward Mallory Pugh, who will turn 21 just a few months before the World Cup, is as promising as any member of the U.S.’s next generation. Pugh returned from injury to score six goals and set up three others in 10 international games this year — and could be just scratching the surface of her talent.According to ESPN’s Stats & Information Group, the average age of Team USA in its 2018 games was 26.4 years old, compared with the average age of 32.6 for the group that took the field in the 2015 World Cup. A few standbys do remain from the rosters of old — Lloyd and Rapinoe are still the anchors of this team, while Morgan remains at the top of her game, having scored or assisted on 14 goals in 15 games with the national team this year. But the 2019 World Cup will also serve as a transition of sorts into a new era for the USWNT. And although America’s youth-level results leading up to next year aren’t great, we shouldn’t assume that the U.S.’s senior-team dominance will end any time soon. Dynasty Points are awarded for success in a tournament. A team gets 1,000 points for winning the tournament, 250 for losing in the semifinals (with a 100-point bonus for finishing third), 115 for losing in the quarters and 40 for losing in the Round of 16.* Ties are counted as a half-win.Source: FIFA
