Mayoral contender vows to build metro, wipe out smog in Poland’s historic Kraków
Speaking at a regional convention ahead of upcoming local government elections, Małgorzata Wassermann said her plan to wipe out smog in the city was based on measures including subsidies for the replacement of old heating systems. Wassermann also said she would institute measures to increase the thermal efficiency of buildings and create incentives to encourage eco-friendly construction projects. There is no time to lose because air pollution levels in Kraków are too high for more than 130 days a year, Wassermann told the gathering. Nor can the city “afford anymore to be missing a subway” because it is choking with traffic, Wassermann said in a speech that was met with loud applause. Wassermann, a lawyer and MP who heads a special parliamentary commission probing a notorious pyramid scheme, received solid support from Poland’s conservative leader Jarosław Kaczyński and Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, both of whom praised her qualifications for mayor of Poland’s second-largest city and the country’s historic capital. Poland’s ruling conservatives and a host of other parties this weekend intensified their campaigns on the homestretch to election day next Sunday. Fourteen contenders for mayor of Warsaw on Friday locked horns in a televised debate as the race for the office revved up over the weekend. (gs) Source: TVP Info, PAP

2018 WAFCA Winners
2018 WAFCA Winners

As a film critic of medium-low importance, one of my most sacred duties is participating in the Washington Area Film Critics Association (WAFCA) year-end awards extravaganza. During this hallowed time of year, I watch dozens of movies and mine my own recollection of the good, the bad, and the ugly to determine what, precisely, the best films of the year were. At the end of this grueling process—this death march through endless stacks of DVDs, searching for the rarest pearl in an ever-increasing sea of muck—we WAFCA members nominate up to five films/people in each category. The five films/people who earn the most votes in every category are then voted upon by the whole of the membership, the winners are chosen, the press release is sent out, and blessed, blessed relief descends upon us as we put the exercise to rest for 11 months.
