Eclectic, forerunner of a genderless fashion with which only today we begin to familiarize ourselves, Kansai Yamamoto, who disappeared as a result of a leukemia at 76 years old, was one of the most important and loved Japanese stylists, together with his contemporary Kenzo (88 years old) outside the Rising Sun. The death is on July 22, but the news was later given by his daughter Mirai, who remembered him on his Instagram profile. He was a protagonist of the nonconformist environment of London in the 70s: gave life to the alter ego of David Bowie or Ziggy Stardust, creating those original, ante-punk outfits for which he has become famous, ending with those costumes in dozens of exhibitions starting with ‘David Bowie is’ at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. Bold avant-garde pieces that challenged the rules of male / female clothing, powerful in bright colors and bright motifs. The shot of Masayoshi Sukita with Bowie dressed in the Tokyo Pop, the suit made by Yamamoto is one of those masterpiece photos of the history of music and fashion, united under the sign of ‘glam rock’. The collaboration and friendship with Bowie characterized a good part of his golden age, allowing him to become a point of reference for other designers starting from jean paul Gaultier, continuing with Hedi Slimane and Raf Simons. Yamamoto had made the Japanese culture of origin his own and certainly not forgotten, but unlike his other colleagues and what we consider to be ‘the Japanese style’, his era a far from minimalist fashion and skinny. Yamamoto was born on February 8, 1944 in Yokohama and before devoting himself to fashion he had studied as a civil engineer. The Japanese concept of ‘basara’, the flashy aesthetic, was his particular inspiration since the first fashion show, young 27 year old in 1971 in London. That show made history: Yamamoto was the first Japanese designer in the English capital and it was on that occasion that characters such as Stevie Wonder, Elton John and precisely Bowie were noticed. For Ziggie Stardust’s tour, Bowie asked the designer all the outfits as they say today. Thus an exceptional collaboration was born: Bowie was attracted to Yamamoto’s ability to design excessive and sculptural pieces that seemed unconstrained by such boundaries. In turn, Yamamoto had been impressed with Bowie’s ability to put this modern, unconventional aesthetic into traditional popular culture. In the following years the stylist, moved to Paris, had remained faithful to his style which he presented in much more than fashion shows, in real super shows that from Europe then turned on tour in Asia.
The number of corona tests increases from week to week. The NDR Schleswig-Holstein has figures from the state health ministry. Accordingly, the number that the laboratories in Schleswig-Holstein forward to the ministry each week rose from a good 15,000 tests about a month ago to about 23,000 last week. According to the ministry, one reason for the increase is that precautionary tests are increasingly being carried out in companies that produce and export food. Countries such as China, the USA or Canada require corresponding proof from the companies.

The KVSH closes its test centers at the end of the month – but if necessary, operations can be started up again quickly, a spokesman said.

The Dutch are increasingly positive about working from home and increasingly believe that they will work from home more often after the corona crisis, the Knowledge Institute for Mobility Policy (KiM) reports Tuesday. This also applies to NU.nl readers: 75 percent of the more than three thousand voters see themselves working from home more often in the future. At NUjij they explain why.
Respondent Nico1233 now especially notices that five days working in the office is unnecessary. “I’m in the office one to three times a week right now, and that’s more than enough.”
He likes that he now has time for other activities. “Time was often filled by useless meetings. I don’t have to travel there anymore. That saves two hours in one day, which leaves me with extra free time.”
Cold water fear among managers
Frans_V expects to work at home a lot, certainly after the corona crisis. He has worked in the consultancy sector for business for over thirty years. “It is not required at all to be continuously in the office or physically going to appointments.”
According to him, there were many people with cold water before the crisis. “Especially with managers. It was too simple to assume that working from home is less effective and efficient. It certainly requires a different way of working. You have to learn to deal with digital communication, the information exchange between colleagues is different and there is a different degree. of coordination, coaching and management. “
He can imagine that this is not possible for everyone. “In my situation, working from home suits me perfectly, but I can imagine that this is not possible in every sector and that it also depends on the private situation at home.”
“I missed my colleagues”
Commenter Russian salad, on the other hand, is eager to work full-time at the office again. “Although I was able to carry out my work at home without restrictions, I hate it. I missed colleagues and the opportunity to spar, and at home I felt less involved in my work.”
Bert_Vlis agrees. “From time to time it is nice that you can get together with a team of people to discuss matters. I miss that when working from home.”
According to him, the lack of social contact is a loss. “People are less approachable and you feel a bit alone. I understand that a lot of people like working at home more, but this is not the case for me.”
Bernardo Atxaga assures that a poet is measured in lectures and readings, that it is not an easy challenge, but he is passionate about responding to that kind of challenge of sharing his text out loud in front of an audience. ‘Pange lingua, voglio una pizza’ is his latest installment in this regard. This recital, which will premiere today at the Arriaga Theater, at 7:30 p.m., proposes a unique tour of the language. “As the title reflects, I go from one extreme to another, from gold to sheet metal, from the sacramental, used in the Church, to the one that corresponds to the most vulgar expression and a snorty poem,” she explains.
The author acknowledges that this is not an exposition of the word in use. “At my age, and after fifty years of experience, I no longer say anything canonical, and the recital will be special, sui generis”, indicates and points out that it will start from a poem that he included in the book ‘Ethiopia’, a publication considered fundamental within Basque literature, and from the night in which that publication was printed in a workshop in Portugalete. “At that moment something unusual happens that will mark the narration,” he reveals. The writer and actor Joseba Apaolaza himself will take over the reading.
The staging will be simple. The ‘Adoration of the Magi’ by El Bosco will appear several times on screen and an advertisement will also be issued, justified by the story. “It is about theater on the edge, based solely on the word, without movement”, adduces and explains that the first verses revolve around a girl who explains the death of her dog. “As TS Eliot points out, that the writer has a childish side is a good sign, it shows that he can also do intellectual poetry.”
In two languages, untranslated
The combined use of Spanish and Basque is one of the characteristics that also makes this appointment with the author of ‘Obabakoak’ or ‘Gizona bere bakarkadean’ unusual, since it is not a bilingual meeting. “Not at least as it is done in politics, repeating the same meanings,” he points out and warns that one will serve the variations that another makes in their respective text. “They provide different information, they add, because the other does not interest me as a narrator”.
The atmosphere of mystery will also permeate the recital. “People may not understand the sacramental part, but in any case, it is a sign in itself”, maintains and adds that the gags will abound and several buffa poems will be read, some unpublished.
The book has a poem that was translated into Spanish without accents and will be read as is, in another game with the language. “My obsession is that all words have a connotation”, specifies and recognizes that the development of the reading will not be regular. “I would say it will look something like bumper cars.”
The recital has an antecedent in the text ‘Paradise and cats’, which was brought to the scene in Bilbao, Madrid and Barcelona. “You can enjoy the show without knowing my work, and I also maintain that whoever knows it will be surprised”. You can’t imagine what the public’s reaction will be. “I don’t know if they will hang me or carry me off my shoulders. The important thing is that it offers many possibilities ».
On July 11, 2010, Nelson Mandela made his last public appearance. He accompanied Spain at the moment when the team was going to reach its climax, the conquest of the Soccer World Cup in the imposing Soccer City, an architectural jewel in the chaotic and criminal Johannesburg. With his health already very worn out, nearing his 92nd birthday, the former South African president, former leader of the African National Congress and Nobel Peace Prize winner, made an effort and was there.
The next day, at the closing press conference of the event, FIFA President Joseph Blatter paid tribute to Madiba with these words: “It was Nelson Mandela who brought the World Cup to South Africa, a person who, when he got out of prison, asked for peace, understanding and generosity for the country.” “He told us years ago that he had a dream: for the World Cup to come to South Africa. He has been its architect. He could not be at the opening ceremony due to the recent death of his great-granddaughter, but at the closing, his presence was a very special moment, “explained Blatter.
Madiba, died three years later, was the spiritual force of the black continent. With them ‘Springboks’ conquered the Rugby World Cup in 1995, a film story that was brought to the big screen in 2009 (Invictus) by Clint Eastwood, one of the great geniuses of the seventh art; and the ‘Bafana’ lifted 1996 Africa Cup.
«There are moments that make the history of a nation and we live one of them. What an honor, what a dream come true, a privilege for our young democracy, only 16 years old! ” jacob zuma, former president of south africa
«There are moments that make the history of a nation and we live one of them. What an honor, what a dream come true, a privilege for our young democracy, only 16 years old! ». Wearing a South African scarf, the country’s then president, Jacob Zuma, brought the Mandela’s message before the first World Cup in history in Africa, a golden opportunity, a challenge for the economic, political and social evolution of the country.
Mandela was the icon, the inspirer of the event with his love for humanity. Only thanks to their work of conciliation after ending the horror of ‘Apartheid’, its commitment and its firm defense of human rights, the most disadvantaged peoples on the planet were able to enjoy their championship. He held the same spot where he addressed the crowd when the stadium was called FNB in 1990, after being released after spending 27 years in prison for his opposition to the slavery regime.
As Zuma explains, all of Africa saw in the World Cup the need to achieve a great brand of trust from the international community, to take a qualitative leap, to open up to the universe to say loudly and clearly that, despite their immense limitations, they were prepared. We are risking everything. Let’s end prejudice. There will be a before and after this World Cup ”, proclaimed former Ivorian soccer player Didier Drogba, months before the opening of the World Cup.
Living with anxiety
Throughout the championship, South Africans lived with anxiety, with the butterflies in the stomach that Rich Makhondo, member of the organizing committee, talked about. Immense happiness and relief for those people who invaded the streets, they jumped, they danced, they sang, the traffic collapsed, always chaotic, and they blew their damn vuvuzelas until they made you deaf.
South Africa went wild with its World Cup. Immediately after landing at Johannesburg’s Tambo Airport, huge, colorful signs showed that it was “Africa’s time.” Great photos of famous local players depicted the ‘selection’ ‘Africa United’. Local flags were waved by corners, balconies, and vehicles. It was the moment of a country, a passion, with five stars at the heart.
South Africa received a legacy of its World Cup in the form of ten state-of-the-art stadiums, a massive influx of tourists and a few inflated bills. It was all over on time and the whole world applauded. But the essential, the national feeling, a certain social cohesion and the pride of being South African or just African, has faded with the passage of time.
To host the most followed event on the planet, his government disbursed at the time 30,000 million rands, more than 3,000 million euros today, on roads, airports, telecommunications and sports facilities. Those massive investments earned the country a point of growth and the construction or renovation of the stadiums created 66,000 jobs. But the money invested was never recovered and some municipalities inherited bills that they still pay.
At the sports level, the expected takeoff of the African teams did not take place. With the exception of Ghana, who fell to Uruguay on penalties and equaled the records of the legendary Roger Milla in Italy’90 and Senegal in Japan and Korea 2002, the rest of the countries of the continent did not meet expectations. Algeria, Nigeria, Cameroon, Ivory Coast and South Africa were not able to overcome the first phase. For the first time, the host team died in the initial cut. But the hubbub always lasted. ‘Waka waka’.
Banksy claimed yesterday his last work he did a few days ago in a London subway car in a video published on Instagram. In the images, you can see the elusive street artist, who still his true identity is unknown, dressed in a white protective suit to make the drawings of his rat characteristics in various areas.

But the work did not last long for the artist. According to the Daily Mail, it has been removed by a subway cleaner, who thought it was an ordinary graffiti. It is estimated that Banksy’s piece could exceed eighty million euros.
At first, Transport for London, the agency responsible for most aspects of the city’s transportation system, claimed that it had been removed a few days ago due to its strict anti-graffiti policy.
Transport for London even invited Banksy to recreate the message elsewhere. A spokesperson said in the aforementioned media: “We appreciate the feeling of encouraging people to wear face masks, which is the vast majority of customers in our network doing. We would like to offer Banksy the opportunity to make a new version of your message to our clients in a proper location».
Joey Syer, co-founder of MyArtBroker.com, has stated that it could have been one of Banksy’s most valuable pieces because of his big size and the exceptional nature of the time in which it was created, in full coronavirus pandemic. “It is very likely that whoever removed it was following the protocol and had no idea that he was destroying a Banksy,” continues this specialist in the aforementioned newspaper. We estimate that its value could have reached 82 million euros ”.
Very active during the pandemic
During his action, for which in addition to eblack spray uses a green liquid coming out of a spray pack on his back, Banksy comes across a passenger to the one who asks that retreat a few meters, while this stunned presence the scene.
