The ongoing renovation of theGran Hotel Costa Rica, one of the most iconic buildings in downtown San José, has elicite outrage from citizens, architects, and others who claim the new design will strip the building of the characteristics that earned it a declaration of Historical and Architectural Heritage by the Culture Ministry.Renovation work on the hotel, inaugurated in 1930 in front of the National Theater, began in June and are expected to be completed in December.The investor group Elite Hotels and Resorts Costa Rica signed a Hilton Worldwide franchise to operate the hotel under its Curio Collection by Hilton brand.On Sunday, the daily La Nación published an detailed story about the changes being made, including renderings of the expected results provided by construction company OBP Arquitectos. The images show a total transformation of the building façade, which provoked severe criticism of the firm and of the Culture Ministry’s Heritage Conservation Center, responsible for granting the work permit.Op-Eds, letters and messages on social media from citizens and groups have since criticized the design. Former President Laura Chinchilla who described it as an eyesore on her Facebook page.Architect Andrés Fernández, a specialist in the capital’s architecture, told La Nación that “more than remodeling, the Gran Hotel Costa Rica is undergoing a reconstruction.” Top: Render of the approved plan by the Culture Ministry. Bottom: Render provided to La Nación by OBP Arquitectos. (Culture Ministry)‘Just paint’Culture Ministry and Heritage Conservation Center officials met with members of the Federated Association of Engineers and Architects (CFIA) on Wednesday to discuss the situation, prompted mostly by public backlash against the project.The Culture Ministry issued a news release on Wednesday evening saying that “the only visible change that the Gran Hotel Costa Rica will undergo after renovation work is done will be in its color,” adding that “in that sense, only the use of shades of gray was approved.”The statement denied that the colors will be black and white, as shown in the La Nación story. The ministry also provided renders of the approved plans, and noted that officials from the Heritage Conservation Center are supervising the work and conducting weekly inspections.The ministry said that the hotel’s arcades, one of its most popular features, will not undergo any modifications.Fifth floor controversyHowever, it seems clear the conservation is far from over. Citizens and architects who criticized the works lamented the total demolition of the hotel’s fifth floor. The Culture Ministry’s statement noted that it authorized the works as “that floor was not part of the original construction in 1930.”According to Heritage Conservation Center research, the fifth floor was built years later and has already been replaced and rebuilt several times.Describing changes to that floor, the ministry said: “the last renovation, which remains in the people’s collective imagination, was made about 30 years ago […] We were able to verify that it was the product of a combination of interventions and construction techniques dissimilar from the original building, and using low quality materials… Clearly, it was not part of the original four-story building.”CFIA members agreed to appoint a group of additional experts who will join Heritage Conservation Center officials on their inspections in coming days.Conservation requirementsThe Gran Hotel Costa Rica was inaugurated in October 1930, with U.S. architect Victor Lorenz in charge of the project.Besides its architectural heritage, the hotel’s suites hosted several important visitors including U.S. Presidents John F. Kennedy, Harry Truman and Jimmy Carter. U.S. actor John Wayne, Mexican comedian Mario Moreno “Cantinflas”, Panamanian boxing champion Roberto “Mano de Piedra” Durán, and Brazilian football legend Pelé have also spent the night there.For those historical reasons, the Heritage Conservation Center permit demands building owners’ strict compliance with a series of requirements to maintain the hotel’s original design.These include recovering the original texture of the terrace floors — currently covered by lower-quality flooring — and keeping all original floors and mosaics in the building, except for carpets.The room used by President Kennedy must be preserved, maintaining all windows and their original closing mechanisms, as well as the arcades as they exist today at the hotel’s entrance. The work permit stipulates renovation works must preserve the arcades in the hotel’s entrance and its mosaic floors. L.

Go back to the e-newsletterHilton’s luxury brand, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, will welcome its first guests in Southeast Asia in Q3 2018 with the opening of Waldorf Astoria Bangkok. One of the region’s most anticipated hotel openings this year, the debut will introduce the brand’s iconic experience to discerning travellers in the Thai capital, in the heart of the bustling Ratchaprasong intersection.With a global portfolio of 30 hotels and resorts, Waldorf Astoria is known for its commitment to personal service and culinary expertise in landmark locations around the world. Waldorf Astoria offers a strong sense of arrival and impressive public spaces worthy of hosting history. Numerous historical figures – from Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe and Frank Sinatra to world leaders – have been associated with the brand.“Waldorf Astoria Bangkok will mark the brand’s first foray into Southeast Asia and herald the introduction of Unforgettable Experiences in Bangkok and beyond,” said Daniel Welk, Vice President of Operations, Luxury and Lifestyle, Hilton, Asia Pacific. “The hotel’s timeless environment and exclusively crafted guest experiences, combined with the brand’s unparalleled True Waldorf Service, will set a new benchmark for luxury in Asia.”In tribute to the owners of the property, Magnolia Finest Corporation Limited, the building has been designed to give the effect of springing from the ground like a magnolia tree. Towering above the city, the sculptural appearance of the property cuts a dramatic profile in the skyline of Bangkok.The hotel will boast 171 guest rooms and suites, which reflect the artistry and craftsmanship of award-winning architect André Fu and his design studio AFSO. The hotel’s crown jewel will span the top three floors from levels 55 to 57, comprising three dining outlets by design and concept firm AvroKO, headquartered in New York.In line with Waldorf Astoria’s culinary heritage, Waldorf Astoria Bangkok is primed to be a dining destination, featuring three restaurant concepts, a lounge and two bars. Chef Rungthiwa Chummongkhon, or Chef Fae, will bring her experience of working at Michelin-starred restaurants in Europe to head the restaurant Front Room, which will present an elegant new blend of “new Nordic” and Thai flavours in a relaxed setting.Go back to the e-newsletter
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” won best film and best director on Saturday at the 33rd Independent Film Spirit Awards, a day before the horror sensation will vie for top honours at the Academy Awards.The wins for Peele’s directorial debut gave the Spirits, a celebration of indie filmmaking, something unusual: a box-office behemoth. Made for just $4.5 million, “Get Out” grossed $255 million worldwide.“We are in the beginning of a renaissance right now, where stories from the outsider, stories from the people in this room, the same stories that independent filmmakers have been telling for years are being honoured and recognized and celebrated,” Peele said.Peele was presented the award for best director by Spike Lee, whom Peele said paved his way. “Let’s make no mistake,” he said. “I wouldn’t be standing here if wasn’t for this man.”“Get Out” is only the second horror film to win best picture at the Spirits. The other was 2010’s “Black Swan.”“This project didn’t start as a statement,” said Peele. “It began as me wanting to make a film in my favourite genre. I sat down and would smoke a little weed and try to write a mind-bending horror film, my favourite genre and at some point I followed the truth and I realized there are people locked up for smoking less weed than I smoked writing the movie.”Held in a beachside tent on a floor soaked through from rain earlier in the day, the Spirit Awards are the dressed-down, boozy prelude to Sunday’s Academy Awards.But as the Oscars have gravitated toward honouring indie films, the two have come closer to mirroring each other. The last four Spirit winners for best film (“Moonlight,” ”Spotlight,” ”Birdman,” ”12 Years a Slave”) have won best picture at the Oscars.“It’s Saturday,” Peele said backstage of his Oscar expectations. “Tomorrow’s tomorrow. That’s what’s up.”The Spirits are also a party to mark the (almost) end of a long and sometimes repetitive awards season.“I continue to be amazed that you let me get to the microphone. What are you crazy?” said Frances McDormand, who again won best actress for her performance in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” ”Do you know how hard it’s been not to swear over the last couple of months? Because this awards convention goes on for (expletive) forever.”Allison Janney likewise continued her sweep of the best supporting actress awards for “I, Tonya.” The supporting actor Oscar favourite Sam Rockwell (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”) added to his string of awards.Timothee Chalamet, the “Call Me By Your Name” breakthrough star, took best actor, a category that at the Spirits didn’t include the Oscar favourite Gary Oldman. The 22-year-old said he was trying to savour the moment.“I don’t know if this kind of thing is ever going to happen again,” said Chalamet.Returning hosts John Mulaney and Nick Kroll opened with a lively monologue that managed to touch on everything from Donald Trump, Harvey Weinstein and Brett Ratner to the pronunciation of Saoirse Ronan’s name (“Sour Shoes Ronan,” Mulaney said) and Mulaney’s wife’s infatuation with “Call Me By Your Name’s” Timothee Chalamet.Mulaney said he once had a meeting with Weinstein where the fallen mogul proclaimed that his legacy, and what would be written on his tombstone, wouldn’t be for the films he’s done, that it’d be for “Project Runway.”“Your tombstone isn’t going to say ‘Project Runway.’ It’s going to say double XL unmarked grave,” Mulaney said.Kroll and Mulaney joked about separating the artist from the art for some of the men accused of misconduct.“Like with Kevin Spacey: Can we still love ‘K-PAX?” Kroll pondered.Added Mulaney: “Or Woody Allen and his last 21 unwatchable films? Can we still not watch them?”“Lady Bird” writer-director Greta Gerwig won best screenplay for her partly autobiographical family drama.“Thank you to my parents for watching the plays that I put on in the living room and thank you to my brother and sister for acting in them,” said Gerwig.Dee Rees’ “Mudbound” received the Robert Altman Award, an ensemble honour given to one film’s director, casting director and cast. In an impassioned speech, Rees celebrated each element of the film, a Netflix release, and concluded by pronouncing: “‘Mudbound’ is cinema.”Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon won best first screenplay for “The Big Sick,” which they based on the real-life drama of the beginning of their own relationship. They are also up for the original screenplay award at the Oscars. They both thanked their parents, who provided some of the inspiration for the parents in the film, with some artistic license.“My dad never cheated on my mom,” said Gordon. “That was something we made up for the movie.”“That we know of,” quipped Nanjiani.The social-media satire “Ingrid Goes West,” starring Aubrey Plaza and Elizabeth Olsen, won best first feature. Sebastián Lelio’s “A Fantastic Woman,” from Chile, won best international film. The film, about a transgender woman whose partner has died, is up for best foreign picture at the Academy Awards.“I thought the film was going to encounter, to say the least division, and that hasn’t been the case,” Lelio said backstage. “What surprises me most is that the film has been understood.”“The Rider” director Chloe Zhao was given the inaugural Bonnie Award, for a mid-career female director, which includes a $50,000 grant. Agnes Varda, the 89-year-old French filmmaking legend, won best documentary with her co-director JR for their “Faces Places,” also a nominee at Sunday’s Oscars.Winners are chosen by Film Independent, which includes critics, filmmakers, actors, festival programmers, past winners and nominees, and members of its board. The Spirit Awards cap nominees at a budget of $20 million or less, which eliminates some bigger-budget awards contenders like “Dunkirk.”But the film many consider the Oscar front-runner — Guillermo del Toro’s modestly budgeted “The Shape of Water,” up for a leading 13 nominations Sunday — was completely overlooked by the Spirits.___Follow Coyle on Twitter at http://twitter.com/jakecoyleAP and Bahr at http://twitter.com/ldbahr___For full coverage of awards season, visit: https://apnews.com/tag/AwardsSeason by Jake Coyle And Lindsey Bahr, The Associated Press Posted Mar 4, 2018 2:58 am PDT Last Updated Mar 4, 2018 at 3:40 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email ‘Get Out’ wins for best film, director at Spirit Awards Hosts John Mulaney, left, and Nick Kroll speak on stage at the 33rd Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday, March 3, 2018, in Santa Monica, Calif.

here say Their reluctance to subject themselves to such tests on the National Health Service (NHS) is due to cultural reasons and low awareness of breast cancer in the Asian communityhealth experts in Manchester say Latest evidence shows that only a third of women with origins in the Indian sub-continent are taking up life-saving breast screeningreports from Manchester said A study carried out in Oldham shows that British Asian women are only half as likely as the rest of the population to attend the routine NHS check-ups introduced to spot the early signs of breast cancer Doctors in Britain have long suspected there was a lower take-up rate among minority populationsbut the first study of its kind reveals that in less well-off neighbourhoods only 35 per cent of Asian women were likely to attend screeningcompared to 70 per cent of non-Asian women This puts them at risk of a late diagnosis and vastly reduces the chances that the cancer can be cured Breast cancer specialist Lester Barr said a range of factors stopped many Asian women from getting checked Barrwho works at Wythenshawe and The Christie hospitalssaid: “The issue is more than a language issue There is less breast

latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Related NewsIt was from the horse’s mouth Revenue Secretary Hasmukh Adhia recently said eventually there would be a single GST rate and ideally there should not be a separate state GST and central GST in conformity with GST’s credo ‘One Country One Tax’ This official position was stated in the last week of June when GST was being readied for its 1 July 2017 launch While it is impossible to achieve the ideal of a single unified GST given the strong federal character of the nation with States fighting for their revenue with every ounce of energy in their command a single rate GST regime is not impossibility Indeed it is very much possible and desirable Given Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s vehement opposition to and disavowal of the single rate GST regime one wonders if Revenue Secretary Adhia would have got a gentle dressing down from the affable Finance Minister But one thing is clear: Jaitley’s disavowal seems to be to spite BJP’s bête noire Rahul Gandhi the Congress Vice-President who for once spoke sense when he said the GST rate should be a one-size-fits-all 18 percent written into the Constitution Whether it should be 18 percent can be debated Also debatable is if it should be cast in stone and written into the Constitution though admittedly Constitution is capable of being amended But there is a very strong case for a single rate Indeed many countries that have adopted VAT which GST is have also adopted the single rate regime Jaitley says Hawaii chappals and swanky BMW car cannot and should not be taxed at the same rate This is a typical communist construct It is nobody’s case that rich people should be let off with a rap on their wrists But it is conceded by economists that the best corrective for inequity is direct taxes The same Jaitley was the first to junk Wealth Tax in 2015 which held sway in some form or the other in the country till then That revenue from wealth tax was peanuts was hardly a ground to junk it just as it was hardly the reason for keeping estate duty in a suspended animation by the late former finance minister VP Singh It is strange that Jaitley who is reluctant to tax the rich with heavy hands when it comes to direct taxes pontificates on the need to have discriminatory GST rates that puts a heavy shovel on luxury items while being kind to necessities and essentials especially for the common man Jaitley also forgets that GST like other variants of VAT or value added tax is a destination based tax which typically targets the value addition at each stage without being unduly bothered about its economic status — necessity or comfort or luxury Let us say a compressor is manufactured Compressor has multiple uses It is used in drilling It is used in air-conditioning homes and offices It is used in refrigeration It is also used in air-conditioning BMW Can Jaitley tax the same compressor at 28 ercent when it enters BMW and at 18 percent when it is an integral part of a domestic air conditioner even though at present all air conditioners are taxed at 28 percent But then Jaitley has been ‘rationalising’ the GST rates which he says is a work in progress and soon he might prune the 50 items in the 28 percent list further Who knows after air-conditioned restaurants it might be the turn of air-conditioners to earn Jaitley’s indulgence Similarly malt is used both in food products including beverages as well as in the sinful beer Should malt be taxed at different rates accordingly as the use it is put to Marijuana the intoxicant that is banned in our country is capable of being used as a pain killer for cancer patients as well as for entertainment as in states like Colorado in the USA Would Jaitley have two sets of rates for marijuana once India emulates the USA and recognises its dual use Such micromanagement results in tampering with records so that one can get away with lower taxes The first thing Jaitley did when he embarked seriously on GST rollout was to identify all possible finished goods in the market and fix their rates That exercise called for value judgment — whether an item was an essential item or a luxury — needlessly embroiling the government in controversies and nitpicking like he did when he distinguished between air-conditioned and non-airconditioned restaurants which he mercifully gave up in his recent ‘rationalisation’ exercise Instead of using GST as a tool to usher in social and income equity let him use direct taxes for the same Let him bring back estate duty or inheritance tax and wealth tax Some states in the USA impose a whopping 45 percent inheritance tax that forces tycoons into gifting during their lifetime instead of bequeathing on their death That Jaitley is indulging in grandstanding is clear — while caviling at the single rate he is gradually bringing down the items under the 28 percent category Who knows his work in progress might unwittingly result in there being just two classifications 5 percent and 18 percent which would bring India closer to the near universal norm of single rate GST By: Reuters | Published: November 2 2017 3:13 pm Periscope Twitter’s
