When he heard that Obama had signed the administrative order, opening up a possible door to legal status for undocumented young people, he went to his brother’s bedroom and woke him. Saavedra recalled that it was nearly seven years since he had promised Rodrigo that he would be able to go to college. He also remembers his brother’s response: “He said, ‘Thank you – that took a while’.”
Determined to serve neeps and tatties on the 25th, I will be baking potatoes to accompany the oxtail. They will be baked in a round pan, sliced as thinly as my amateur knifemanship will permit, each slice tossed with olive oil and salt and rosemary. Then baked in the same oven as the oxtail, until the top layer is crisp in patches, its edges nut-brown.
The road from San Sebastián to A Coruña is one of big cities, pretty fishing towns, high cliffs and raging sea. It skirts the rugged Basque coast, runs through lush Cantabria and Asturias, and ends up in Galicia, on the wildly beautiful Costa de la Muerte.
I spent 10 days travelling from Beijing to Shanghai, then took a bus to Hangzhou to meet Peili. As we sipped aromatic tea in his modest apartment, he explained how in the 80s he had questioned whether anyone in China could be avant garde, given how closed-off their environment was.
I was working at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and, keeping my ear to the ground, would attend events in alternative spaces housed in low-rent, rundown buildings across the city. I would race up splintery staircases just as artists rushed down them with newly completed videotapes tucked under their arms. I watched works on TV monitors and navigated my way through mazes of cables and cobbled-together equipment to experience “site-specific installations” – an unfolding new art form showing live feeds or prerecorded videos on carefully arranged TV sets.

For descargar loba negra six weeks, Selene Saavedra Roman has been living what her husband describes as “a nightmare”. In February, in the first few weeks of a new job as a flight attendant with Mesa Airlines and on a turnaround flight from Mexico, she was detained at George Bush intercontinental airport in Houston.
Saavedra Roman entered the US from Peru 25 years ago, when she was three, with parents who did not have documentation.

Why Trump-era policies create new barriers to legal immigration to the US Read moreEven though David Watkins, her husband, said she had put Mexico and Canada on her “no fly” list when she was hired this winter, her new employer said via email and phone she could fly to and from Mexico in safety.

Braised oxtail with smoked garlicIt is worth serving a stew such as this in a bowl and offering a spoon as well as a knife and fork. No one will want to miss one drop of the dark and sticky sauce, with its notes of bay and smoked garlic.
In 1965 he snapped up one of the first video cameras to reach Manhattan, his new home town, and by 1974 had created his masterpiece, TV Buddha.

Nothing moves, which leads the viewer to wonder whether the image on the screen is a live feed or recorded.
