George Mason University, Schar School of Public Policy and Goverment.

George Mason University

The Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University is launching a new area of emphasis in the Master’s in Public Policy program—Economic Policy. This marks the 13th emphasis area available to public policy graduate students. The Economic Policy emphasis area will launch in the fall of 2019.

A signature component of the Schar School’s MPP program, the areas of emphasis are optional, pre-defined areas of study that allow public policy master’s students to hone in on a specialized focus area while still gaining the broad understanding and foundation needed to excel in public policy and policy analysis careers.

“The new Economic Policy area of emphasis will allow MPP students to develop and showcase their skills in an area of foundational importance to policy across an array of issues, drawing on the expertise of our faculty who are scholars in the field,” said Bonnie Stabile, director of the Master’s in Public Policy program and founder of the Schar School’s Gender and Policy (GAP) Initiative.

The Economic Policy emphasis area in the MPP program will be comprised of advanced methods electives “built on core courses in microeconomics, macroeconomics, and statistics,” said John Earle, a professor at the Schar School.

“Among the policies and issues explored in these courses are employment and unemployment, inequality, discrimination, aging and retirement, taxes, immigration, minimum wages, education, health insurance, regulation, entrepreneurship, and productivity,” Earle added.

This is the second emphasis area the Schar School’s MPP program has launched in the last year. In the Fall of 2018, the Schar School partnered with George Mason’s College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) to offer an emphasis area in Education Policy, spearheaded by CEHD professor Spiros Protopsaltis, a former deputy assistant secretary in the Department of Education and senior Senate aide, and former Virginia Secretary of Education Anne Holton, now a visiting professor at CEHD and the Schar School.

Economic policy focused on the public good has long been at the forefront of research and entrepreneurship at the Schar School and George Mason. Economic policy is explored in depth at the Schar School’s Centers on the Public Service, the Center for Regional Analysis, the Stephen S. Fuller Institute for Research on the Washington Region’s Economic Future, and other departments.

(REUTERS). U.S. senators offer bill targeting Russia-Germany pipeline.

#World #InternationalNews

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A group of Republican and Democratic U.S. senators introduced legislation on Tuesday seeking sanctions targeting the Nord Stream 2, a planned gas pipeline from Russia to Germany under fire from the United States and some European Union countries.

The bill introduced by Republican Senators Ted Cruz, John Barrasso and Tom Cotton and Democrat Jeanne Shaheen, seeks to impose travel and financial sanctions on companies and individuals involved in constructing the pipeline.

The legislation reflects continued U.S. concerns over Russian influence in Europe, but the measure is many steps from becoming law. It would need to pass both the Senate and House of Representatives and be signed by President Donald Trump to go into effect.

The Nord Stream 2 project is led by the Russian state-owned gas company Gazprom, with funding from Germany’s Uniper and BASF unit Wintershall, Anglo-Dutch firm Shell, Austria’s OMV and France’s Engie.

Opponents of the 11-billion-euro ($12 billion) project worry its construction will increase European reliance on Russian energy. Trump has accused Germany of being “captive” to Moscow because of its dependence on Russian energy, and urged that the project be halted.

But gas by pipeline from Russia offers Germany, the biggest economy in Europe, and other countries in the region a cheaper option for fuel than liquefied natural gas from the United States and other producers.

Germany also wants to reduce its reliance on coal and nuclear energy.

The pipeline, which would carry gas straight to Germany under the Baltic Sea, has also been criticized because it would deprive Ukraine of lucrative gas transit fees, potentially making Kiev more vulnerable.

Washington has touted liquefied natural gas, delivered by U.S. companies, as an alternative to Russian gas. Information from: REUTERS.

Wassili Kandisky, -no hay nada mas que decir.

Wassili Kandisky
1864 – 1944 Rusia.

Domingo de letras, arte y cultua. // Editor.

Alemán y después francés, el pintor Wassily Kandinsky fue el gran teórico (y práctico) del arte abstracto,es decir, este arte en el que la representación del objeto es secundaria e incluso perjudicial: la belleza del arte reside en la riqueza cromática y la simplificación formal. Es la representación de lo esencial del arte, no una burda imitación de la naturaleza, que es de por si insuperable.

Kandinsky compaginó sus estudios de derecho y economía con clases de dibujo y pintura. Como buen aficionado al arte de principios del siglo XX, le interesaban las culturas primitivas y las manifestaciones artísticas populares rusas.
A los 30 años lo abandonó todo para estudiar pintura en Munich, y viajó por numerosos países para descubrir colores, formas y formas de representación alejadas de la mímesis tradicional.

IMG_20190413_221955_040 1923.  Esta es su mejor obra, para un servidor.

Encabeza el grupo expresionista Der Blaue Reiter (el jinete azul), con el que comienza a obsesionarse con expresar algo más allá de la simple representación de la naturaleza.

Poco a poco, su experimentación continuada culmina en torno a 1910, entregandose a la abatraccion pura. Un poco de la libertad cromática de los fauvistas el impulso personal del artista típico de los expresionistas y una espiritualidad que robaba tanto de las matemáticas como de la música.

Entre 1910 y 1914, Kandinsky pintó obras de tres categorías: las impresiones (inspiradas en la naturaleza), las improvisaciones(expresiones de emociones internas) y las composiciones (de gran rigor compositivo aunque basadas en la pura intuición). Líneas negras agrupadas junto a vivos colores, geometrías, motivos decorativos eslavos y formas en armonía.

Sería por tanto, uno de los padres del arte abstracto, que se acabaría diversificando y contaminando a otros movimientos, del Surrealismo al Neo-Plasticismo pasando por el constructivismo y el expresionismo abstracto. #Cultura
