Yuli – Cuban ballet superstar Carlos Acosta #HabanaFilmFestival – Via LatinPress + Youtube

Havana Film Festival 

The script helped the Cuban dancer Carlos Acosta escape from reality and return to his childhood, family and hometown, as reflected in a film whose screening on Sunday generates crowds of anxious moviegoers.

It is the film Yuli, whose first screening in Cuba two days ago left a lot of audience out of the Karl Marx Theater in Havana, a typical scene during the International Festivals of the New Latin American Cinema when the program of the event announces a recognized film. Judging by criticisms, the new feature film by the Spanish director Iciar Bollain ranks among the greatest productions of the year in the world. British playwright Paul Laverty won the award to the script at the San Sebastian International Film Festival in Spain with this movie.

Crisis Point: The State of Literacy in America By The Room 241 Team / Via education.cu-portland.edu

Crisis-Point-Literacy

The United States is facing a literacy crisis. Yes, crisis. It isn’t new, but its impacts upon our kids, our economy, and our society are far-reaching and expanding. How bad is it? Take a look at some numbers.

  • More than 30 million adults in the United States cannot read, write, or do basic math above a third-grade level. — ProLiteracy
  • Children whose parents have low literacy levels have a 72 percent chance of being at the lowest reading levels themselves. These children are more likely to get poor grades, display behavioral problems, have high absentee rates, repeat school years, or drop out. — National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER)
  • 75 percent of state prison inmates did not complete high school or can be classified as low literate. — Rand Report: Evaluating the Effectiveness of Correctional Education
  • Low literacy is said to be connected to over $230 billion a year in health care costs because almost half of Americans cannot read well enough to comprehend health information, incurring higher costs. — American Journal of Public Health

Removed from the quiet fields of sugar cane and mango trees that thrive further afield, Cuba’s largest city is an urban metropolis – a place of rambling Colonial architecture, endless adventure and unfettered discovery.

#FactsMatter / #Cuba Self-Employment (entrepreneur) the changes respond to the own requests of those who work in this form of management

Two legal norms, published this Wednesday in the Official Gazette Extraordinary No. 77, establish significant amendments to the new rules of self-employment that will come into effect on next December 7.

Related: Legal norms governing self-employment modified

Over the last eight years, self-employment in Cuba has continued to expand, from approximately 157,000 workers in 2010 to 589,000 in 2018, currently representing 13% of the country’s workforce. 
Minister of Labor and Social Security Margarita González Fernández, in a statement to Granma, commented that, as projected, this modality of employment has generated jobs, expanded options for the population, and freed the state from the responsibility of managing small scale activities that do not play an essential role in the national economy.
Nonetheless, she said, violations of the law have emerged, including, for example, tax evasion and purchases of supplies of illicit origin.
Thus, with the purpose of supporting the continued development of the sector in an orderly, legal manner, a policy including 20 regulations was approved and published in the Official Gazette last July 10, stipulating December 7 as the date they would enter into effect, and mandating a broad training program for workers and authorities to ensure understanding of the changes. 
During this period, based on an analysis conducted – and the opinions of self-employed workers and the population, gathered in a broad process of discussion – the Council of Ministers decided to make some modifications, including elimination of the limit to a single self-employment license per person.
Likewise, beginning tomorrow, licenses will again be authorized for 26 of the 27 activities which had been suspended. Licenses for self-employed computer programmers will remain suspended until specific norms for this area are developed.
Additionally, the maximum capacity of 50 for food service establishments was eliminated, with capacity to be determined by the size of the site to be utilized.
