El Proyecto Salones de Artistas desarrolla los Salones Regionales y el Salón Nacional de Artistas. Los Salones se constituyen en una tradición viva y actual por su capacidad de redefinirse continuamente al responder a las transformaciones de las prácticas artísticas y a los desarrollos de la democracia y la descentralización en la política cultural.

President Obama’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner speech (Video)

President Obama’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner shtick was pretty well-received this year: A balance of self-deprecating humor and zingers for his opponents. Some of the night’s biggest laughs went to Obama’s jokes about the Secret Service scandal, and dogs: Both the one that Mitt Romney put on top of his car, and the one that Obama, long ago, ate.

Watch his full speech and read highlights below:


• “Four years ago I was locked in a brutal primary battle with Hillary Clinton. Now, she won’t stop drunk-texting me from Cartagena.”

• “Look at this party: Men in tuxes, women in gows, fine wines. . . I was just relieved to learn this was not a GSA conference.”

• On Romney: “We both have degrees from Harvard -- I have one, he has two. What a snob!”

• And the one that got a slow-build laugh as the audience took a while to get it: “What’s the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? A pit bull is delicious!”

Bobsleigh and Skeleton

Since the first Olympic Winter Games in 1936, Bobsleigh has been one of our key sports. Even back then, Omega served as Official Timekeeper and remains as such for both the FIBT World Cup and World Championships.

How does it work?

Timing point

Depending on the start position and discipline, the position of the five corresponding light beams for intermediate timing and for the finish can be selected automatically or preselected manually. The same applies for up to four points where the speed is measured. SWISS TIMING will typically install 32 timing points, accommodating all the requirements of the different disciplines in the sport.

A countdown clock including start lights indicates the time for the start release, which is then announced with an acoustic signal. Once the two or four-man teams have pushed their sled 15m from the start gate, the start light beams are crossed and the timing is activated. After 50m and already at speeds of over 40km/h, the first intermediate, (known as the "start time") is detected by the next active light beam. This continues through each intermediate point to the finish line, all with a resolution of 1/100 of a second.

All live timing data is processed on-line. Start times, intermediate and finish data are formatted and distributed to many devices including rolling time displays, graphics control for video boards, TV graphics, printers and any other information systems.
