Our “Weekend Arts Spotlight” presents Sunday interviews with artists who are from, working in, or inspired by Costa Rica, ranging from writers and actors to dancers and musicians. Do you know of an artist we should consider, whether a long-time favorite or an up-and-comer? Email us at email@example.com. Facebook Comments The Costa Rican street artist known as MUSH has been leaving his mark around the country with his recognizable signature. His work is characterized by elaborate, aesthetically pleasing calligraphy in different shapes and colors. MUSH’s love for the depiction of his artistic name began when he was young and his mother taught him the importance of having nice handwriting. He has also made mushroom drawings an important element of his art.MUSH, 32, is one of the country’s first street artists; he began his career in 2000 and has produced new works steadily ever since. His latest and most ambitious piece is called Textura Neuronal, located in Lagunilla, Heredia, which uses a vibrant color palette and various textures.On a rainy afternoon at Casa Batsú in Barrio Escalante, The Tico Times sat down and spoke with MUSH about his life and work. Excerpts follow.Why do you write your name on the streets?That’s a good question. Sometimes it bores me; sometimes I want to create other images. However, it has become a habit. Within graffiti most of the things we do began with this idea of leaving a trace that I was here, which is actually a very egocentric act. There are people who give themselves their street names and there are others who are given their street names. It may be Tito [an affectionate diminutive], Gordillo [Fatty], or something like that, and there’s not much mysticism behind it.It’s pretty fun to leave that print everywhere. It’s sort of like a code. It’s a known language within us [graffiti artists]. Sometimes you just see a signature and you don’t know that person; you watch that person’s style and where he or she paints. You wonder who he or she is. It’s about what’s behind that anonymity and hidden character.So what is that anonymity like for you? I know a lot of people and many people know me, but at the same time they don’t know me. I was on a bus and overheard people asking who Mush could be, and I was next to them listening. That’s pretty funny. She was talking about my work and me, and I was right there. When I made one of my first graffitis, the day after doing it I went to photograph it and sat down drinking a juice just contemplating the weird thing I had done. A neighbor of mine came along and said: “Hey, that was not there yesterday.” That’s what I like.One time in Desamparados I wrote, “Who is MUSH?” My friends came and told me later, “Someone is writing, ‘Who is MUSH?’”…[Playing with people’s minds] is fun. Textured details have become a characteristic of MUSH’s work. (Courtesy of Manfred Valverde)Every time you create a new graffiti of your name, how is it a new challenge?You try to invent new things, but it depends on the artist. There are people who reach a graphic comfort zone in which they develop a style, make it the same every time, and just change the colors. I like to experiment [with different things]. Every day is different. There are days when all I want is to make shapes, or something more abstract and free. When I write my name it’s a whole new challenge with the letter design because it’s about a very pure graffiti in which you question on how to write the name and which types of letters to use.How has graffiti developed over the years in Costa Rica?There has been a boom in street art in all countries. It has developed to the point in which it isn’t only graffiti artists painting, but also many talented people who have dared to paint their drawings on a wall. We’ve got to understand that graffiti includes a wide variety of things, including the trend of tags and leaving a trace in the city. Actually, right now there are more of these [tags] than elaborate artwork. There are many emerging young people right now and it’s part of the process because I was one of them at some point, but there are very few people going out there to create elaborate murals.About 6 or 7 years ago [in Costa Rica] there was a big group of colleagues painting with very distinct styles beyond tags. Most of them are tattoo artists right now; I’m very lucky that I can subsist from painting. People come to me so I can do different types of pieces them. Since this has become my day job I’ve got to do different things. Not all of my friends have had that luck, but it has to do a lot with the idea that if you’re active, it’ll all flow. Painting [on the streets] is not cheap. The materials are expensive. Many of my friends have taken their drawing potential and transferred it into tattooing. The tattoo industry has grown a lot. At 350 meters long, Textura Neuronal in Lagunilla de Heredia is MUSH’s biggest mural to date. (Courtesy of MUSH)How does it feel to be one of the first street artists in the country?I always say that I’m from the second generation [of street artists], but I’m the one who has painted the most. In 1999 I was scribbling. Not until 2001 did I begin painting with 3 or 4 spray colors. The graffiti movement began in 1980 in New York and Germany. Obviously there are more things dating back earlier, but the name manifestation began during that time. I began 20 years later, so I’m from a very recent generation.Before I started painting here in San José, there was no graffiti movement whatsoever. I met Checho, a friend who paints, in 1996. He had very few graffiti and drew the A of anarchy… I’m from that first or second generation and from all of those people, I’m the one that has never stopped painting. From 2000 until now, there are a lot of people who have begun painting but then disappeared. They have come and gone.

December 10, 2017 662 Views DocMagic Fights Paper Fallout With High-Tech Print Fulfillment Supercenter Share in Headlines, journal, News, Servicing Company News DocMagic print fulfillment center 2017-12-10 David Wharton DocMagic, Inc., the premier provider of fully-compliant loan document preparation, regulatory compliance, and comprehensive eMortgage services, announced that it has opened a 12,000 square-foot print fulfillment center minutes from its Torrance, California headquarters. DocMagic added the high tech “supercenter” to support lenders’ growing need for secure, compliant paper documents as the mortgage industry transitions to a 100 percent digital mortgage process. “Ironically, DocMagic’s increasing need to produce paper documents results from the growing number of lenders using our technologies to transact paperless mortgages,” said Dominic Iannitti, President and CEO of DocMagic, who explained that even lenders employing 100 percent digital processes need to produce paper documents due to paper “fallout.” Paper fallout, which is normal and can be expected with any digital process, is usually caused when borrowers do not respond to email requests for eSigning within required timeframes or because they specifically ask their lenders to revert to paper documents. When this happens, lenders’ risk of compliance violations increases. The process of printing, preparing, and delivering paper documents is traditionally an intensely manual and time-consuming process, which increases lenders’ risk of missed disclosure deadlines, errors, and compromised data. “Simply creating a print fulfillment center wouldn’t have been an adequate solution because high risk is inherent in handling paper fallout,” said Iannitti. “We needed a fulfillment center based on technology that eclipses any process—manual or automated—currently being used to process paper documents. Fortunately, this is where DocMagic excels. We created a fulfillment supercenter that operates at the height of automation in the mortgage equivalent of a sterile environment. We’re very proud of what we’ve built.” The new fulfillment center uses biometric authentication and video monitoring to provide auditable assurance that only authorized individuals access the building and specific areas within the structure. Inside, advanced technology automates nearly every step of the paper process. Once the documents are ordered, a printer automatically feeds the paper documents directly into an automated system that scans and reads the barcodes to assure that all documents are present. The documents are then inserted into envelopes, sealed, and stamped—all without human intervention. The system logs and stores all actions, so lenders can review them and produce detailed information about any document’s activity, at any time. The result of this high-tech process for handling paper is a drastic reduction in the risk of errors, omissions and compromised data. “UETA [Uniform Electronic Transactions Act] requires that consumers be allowed to opt out of electronic processes at any time, but that’s just one compliance issue lenders need to address,” said Iannitti. “The key difference between DocMagic and a basic software provider is DocMagic’s core focus on providing a legal and compliant process. Unlike other providers, we’ve automated and integrated that opt out option within our workflow so lenders can avert risks that arise when transitioning to another system or vendor.” DocMagic plans to open additional regional print centers across the US over the next several years to support its expansion into other types of consumer loan programs. While there will always be some degree of fallout, as borrowers embrace the eSigning of all documents as the new norm, opting out to a paper process will become less common as well as the need to support additional fulfillment centers.

Author Rick Bragg at home with the ‘best cook’ – his mom Rick Bragg, 58, stands near his mother’s garage with the family dog on Wednesday, May, 9, 2018, in Jacksonville, Ala. Bragg, the Pulitzer Prize winner is spending all the time he can with mother Margaret Bragg, the subject of his latest book, “The Best Cook in the World.” (AP Photo/Brynn Anderson) JACKSONVILLE, Ala. – Bestselling author Rick Bragg is back where he began, living in rural northeastern Alabama with the woman whose food has sustained him and anyone else who came through her kitchen for decades.After a newspaper career that sent him across the globe and amid a book-writing career that has him on the road for weeks at a stretch, the Pulitzer Prize winner spends all the time he can these days with mother Margaret Bragg, the subject of his latest book, “The Best Cook in the World.”Published by Alfred A. Knopf, “The Best Cook in the World” is a cookbook, but not like one of those old Betty Crocker volumes that simply listed recipes like “Ham Wellington with Chutney” and ended with a reminder that calories count.Bragg’s work is more a narrative cookbook that’s heavy on stories about growing up poor, wearing out stoves and the role food plays both in his family and his native South, which gets a little more like everywhere else each time Domino’s delivers a pizza out in the county.Margaret Bragg’s cooking is the main course; her recipes populate the space between her son’s prose.She’s 81 and frail after cancer and cardiac scares, yet there are still mules to feed and yard dogs to pet and a house to tend. So Bragg helps out where needed and writes in her basement, going to town for the occasional meal of fast-food chicken when she’s not up to cooking or helping steady her as she walks out to the small garden beside her log home.“You be careful on this slope,” Bragg told his mom, a hand on her back. Her legs just aren’t as strong as they used to be.Like so many other cooks of her generation, Margaret Bragg never used a recipe or wrote down how to make a biscuit; cooking was a skill passed down orally, something done by feel and taste. For the book, she helped her middle of three sons translate “pinches” and “handfuls” into measures that readers could understand and mimic.“I can tell if I use my hand how much a tablespoon is or how much a teaspoon is, so I went by that,” she said, leaning against a kitchen counter.With “The Best Cook in the World ” on the New York Times’ list for bestselling nonfiction, Bragg currently spends most of his time on the road for a book tour. With earlier books including “All Over but the Shoutin’” and “Ava’s Man,” Bragg can draw a crowd at book signings or speaking engagements.Bragg is scheduled to be at a book store in Carrollton, Georgia, on Mother’s Day before flying to Washington D.C., so a special dinner was planned to celebrate a few days early.“Probably instead of mom cooking, since it’s Mother’s Day, we’ll have Cooter Brown’s barbecued ribs,” said Bragg, referring to an area restaurant. “I might try to beg her to make me some deviled eggs.”“I can do that,” his mom said. by Jay Reeves, The Associated Press Posted May 11, 2018 7:14 am PDT Last Updated May 11, 2018 at 8:01 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email
Over 7,000 people have already visited C2, but owners are aware of future challengesIt is just over a week since Cyprus’ first legal casino began operations and although it has attracted thousands more people than the company anticipated, challenges remain.The casino – albeit a temporary one – is located just a stone’s throw away from Limassol’s My Mall on Franklin Roosevelt Avenue in Zakaki.Aptly named ‘Cyprus Casino’ or ‘C2’, it is just a temporary taster for Melco’s fully fledged integrated €550 million casino resort City of Dreams Mediterranean which is due to open in 2021.The temporary Cyprus Casino began operating on June 28, and over its first weekend, more than 2,000 people were coming in per day, with staff dealing with more visitors than they had expected.“There were a lot of people we expected and some we didn’t,” the casino’s property president Craig Ballantyne told the Sunday Mail.Melco’s property president Craig BallantyneMany of the weekend visitors, Ballantyne said, came out of curiosity and interest.So far, there have been 7,000 unique guests – not repeat guests – and just over 4,000 have joined the casino’s rewards club.The most popular visitors have been Cypriots, followed by those from Greece, Ukraine, Russia, UK, Italy and Lebanon, in that order.“It’s been quite a mix,” Ballantyne said.Commenting on the first week of operations, he told the Sunday Mail: “it has been a real rollercoaster ride. From the plain perspective, it’s been a bit of fun but it’s below expectations I have to say that. We’re not the only game in town and we never have been, never will be.”Though Ballantyne was careful with his wording it is clear that the competition from the north and illegal casinos operating across the country are proving to be a challenge.“With a customer, it’s all about choice – you cannot insist they go anywhere with their disposable income. You cannot twist their arm. It’s all about the offer.”There are about 30 casinos in the north, Ballantyne said, which operate quite professionally “but they give everything free. They give alcohol free, they give cigarettes and tobacco free, just about everything and anything.“But they don’t have the same regulations as we do so it’s not a level playing field.”Ballantyne said, however, it is still early days and this is a learning curve, both for the government, and company as well as the regulators. Though for Melco, the learning curve is fast: they’ve had plenty of experience.Currently, they are in discussions with authorities to try and relax the regulations that are sometimes a little discriminatory, according to Ballantyne.For instance, when it comes to advertising, the regulations clearly stipulate gaming cannot be advertised distastefully or in a way that might encourage anyone to play with the idea that it would give them a life-changing opportunity.Life changing would be for instance suggesting that €5 could get someone €5m.“We wouldn’t want to do that,” said Ballantyne. “But then you’ve got Lotto advertising on TV every night and you’ve got Opap advertising the Joker every day on every shop window in every street and every corner at €1.4m or €2.4m so I kind of find that a little bit discriminatory.”The company obviously wants a return on investment but they know that is a long-term strategy where the key lies in the luxury integrated casino resort, the property president added.Linked to the main operation is a series of small satellite or ‘pop-up’ casinos around the island. The company is confident about their success, though the Nicosia one’s proximity to casinos in the north could pose another challenge for the company.Although this is the first legal casino to open in Cyprus, Ballantyne commented: “this is a mature market.”So, what did the punters think?One middle-aged Cypriot woman who didn’t want to share her name had spent quite some time at a slot machine waiting to win.Too concentrated on the game to say much, she said it was the first time she had ever gone to a casino. She had lost €100 but wasn’t prepared to stop until she won.A Lebanese punter, fixated on his screen, said he found the temporary casino “meh. It’s not designed to let you win, it’s all psychological. No one ever wins.”Exiting the premises, another Greek Cypriot was a lot more impressed. “It’s nice, it’s the second time I’ve been here since it’s opened. I lost €100 today…last time I won €200,” he said.“It’s an experience, a good experience,” he said.He said it was the first time he had visited legal gaming premises.“A long time ago, a very long time ago, some six, seven years ago when there were illegal casinos in Limassol, I went to them.”The most popular games are easily the slot machines Ballantyne said.What they have on offer is what they’ve gleaned from the competitive marketplace – northern Cyprus, Greece, Lebanon, and Egypt – with a mix of roulette, blackjack, poker, Russian poker.“I think we did it quite well although there are a couple of games we might turn around and swap around” for instance more baccarat but high end, which customers have requested in the past week.Currently, low-end baccarat is available but Ballantyne stipulates much of what is and what will be available is supply oriented.Peak times are on average between 8pm and 2am or 3am on a weekend.Visitors have so far been well behaved though there have been a few cases where people have been asked to leave.Security is obviously a serious concern in such a highly charged environment but many of the almost 600 staff members have worked in other Melco casinos across the world.Some of them have come directly from Macau, where Melco has huge operations, and many used to be in Thessaloniki thus coming in with plenty of experience.Hostess Kelly Nicolaou has come from a casino in ThessalonikiKelly Nikolaou, a hostess at the Columbia Bistro restaurant at the Limassol casino used to work at a casino in Greece. Many of her colleagues were also colleagues in Thessaloniki highlighting the feel of a big global company.Nikolaou said she absolutely loved working at the Limassol casino, the coastal city reminding her of Thessaloniki’s beaches. She had a stint working in Cyprus about 16 years ago but coming back, Limassol bears no resemblance.“Before, it was like a small village. But now after coming back with all these high-rise buildings, I see it like a mini-Dubai.”RESPONSIBLE BETTING CAMPAIGNEarlier this week, the national betting authority announced a gaming campaign running from July 2018 to June 2019.Named ‘thoughts’, it aims to target people under the age of 18, pathological players, gamers not deemed at risk, and those with potential symptoms of problematic behaviour.
