NEW YORK (AP) — Transit officials have decided to alter subway station tiles that have a cross-like design similar to that of the Confederate flag.The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is modifying the tiles at the 40th Street entrance to the Times Square subway stop to avoid any confusion about their meaning, MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz said in a statement."These are not confederate flags" Ortiz said. The red, white and blue tiles installed decades ago are "based on geometric forms that represent the 'Crossroads of the World,'" he added.The decision comes in the wake of the deadly rally over a Robert E.

- Ethnic Dance revelations mark festival opening

Even in its 39th year, the San Francisco Ethnic Dance Festival is still uncovering examples of the Bay Area’s inexhaustible cultural bounty and displaying them with uncommon flair.[...] the company’s festival debut was “Awa Odori,” a traditional Japanese ensemble celebrating ancestors, was wonderful in configuration and musicality.The most remarkable aspect of the performance was the live music accompanying all eight companies, a first in my years of festival attendance.The Opera House’s superior acoustics exerted an almost alchemical effect on the dancing, and it did not hurt to engage outstanding musicians like Zakir Hussain and John Santos.The Pilipino Folk Ensemble, LIKHA, revived its evergreen “Birds in Flight,” and the troupe never looked better.Festival debutant Ramón Ramos Alayo re-created a Cuban street party, with flouncing skirts and unpredictable leaps.The finale, an Afro-Cuban coronation celebration, immersed the stage in bodies swaying to an intoxicating score.At intermission, World Arts West, which produces the festival, bestowed the Malonga Casquelourd Lifetime Achievement Award on Naomi Diouf, artistic director of Diamano Coura West African Dance Company.
