Iowa Board of Medicine discusses director's status Mark Bowden has been on paid leave nearly a month Members of the Iowa Board of Medicine prepare to go into closed session Thursday to discuss the employment status of Executive Director Mark Bowden (right), who currently is on paid administrative leave for an undisclosed reason. (Rod Boshart/The Gazette) DES MOINES — Members of the Iowa Board of Medicine met in closed session Thursday to discuss the employment status of their executive director, Mark Bowden, but did not make a final decision. Officials say they expect some action to be taken Friday. Bowden, a former editor of The Gazette in Cedar Rapids who has been the medical board’s executive director since 2008, has been on paid administrative leave for nearly a month for undisclosed reasons. He was paid more than $114,000 in fiscal 2017, state record show. During Thursday’s board meeting, members voted 8-0 to go into closed session to discuss Bowden’s employment status after he indicated he wanted the matter to be discussed privately. The board spent about three hours and 45 minutes in closed session — part with Bowden and part in deliberations before announcing that no discussion would take place in open session. “The board has not made a decision. They are still considering,” said Lynn Hicks, a spokesman for the Iowa Attorney General’s Office, which acts as the board’s legal counsel. “At 9 a.m., they are going to go back into open session to consider the status of the executive director,” he added, noting that the meeting agenda would be amended to include that action item. Before moving to go into closed session, board Chairman Kyle Ulveling of Carroll cited provisions of the Iowa Code that allows a state board to vote to close a meeting to the public “to discuss the appointment, hiring, performance or discharge of an individual” in situations where it is “necessary to prevent needless and irreparable injury to the reputation of the individual whose appointment, hiring, performance or discharge is under consideration.” The law also allows meetings to be closed to discuss “strategy with counsel for matters that are presently in litigation or where litigation is imminent where disclosure would likely prejudice or disadvantage the position of the governmental body in that litigation.” The Iowa Board of Medicine has the authority to regulate the practice of medicine and surgery, acupuncture and genetic counseling, with duties that include licensing physicians and taking disciplinary action to fine or suspend licensed practitioners if they are found to have provided substandard care or violated ethics.

El padre del cómic Underground en España, Nazario, estará el jueves en Alicante para impartir una conferencia y presentar su libro "Sevilla y la casita de las pirañas". El mítico autor de cómic Nazario (Castilleja del Campo,1944), considerado el padre del cómic Underground en España, estará el jueves 26 de julio a las 19:00 horas en la Sede Ciudad de la Universidad de Alicante (San Fernando, 40), donde impartirá una conferencia sobre el cómic underground y gay, y presentará su último libro "Sevilla y la casita de las pirañas". Esta publicación es la segunda entrega de su biografía en la que narra el periodo que recorre los años sesenta y los inicios de los setenta, entre Sevilla, Torremolinos, Morón de la Frontera, Ibiza, Madrid, París, Londres. Nazario evoca una avalancha de experiencias en las que se entremezclan el flamenco y el LSD, la copla y el underground, progres, hippies, comunas gais, origen de lo que luego será su carrera profesional en Barcelona. Esta actividad, organizada por el Aula del Cómic de la Universidad de Alicante (UA), forma parte del programa de actividades de la UA "Campus con orgullo" Nazario Luque Vera es uno de los mejores retratistas de los bajos fondos de Barcelona. Una Barcelona canalla que retrata en las aventuras de su personaje el detective travesti Anarcoma del que dicen ser 'una joya del postunderground mediterráneo' y 'la más escandalosa aportación hispana al cómic mundial'. Pieza clave de la movida barcelonesa de los setenta, junto con su entrañable amigo el mítico pintor Ocaña, convierte el sexo en el único y obsesivo tema de sus comics siendo el primer dibujante que usa la temática gay como fuente de inspiración de su obra tras las historietas Kakes de Tom de Finlandia. Exhibicionista, solidario, provocador, agitador moral, rompedor, arriesgado, polifacético, transgresor, canalla, pintiparado, morigerado o simplemente superviviente son algunos de los adjetivos más empleados por los que escribieron sobre él y su obra. ACTUALIZACIÓN (26 de julio): La Universidad de Alicante (UA) informa que la conferencia de Nazario ha sido suspendida porque el autor no podrá llegar a tiempo a la ciudad por la huelga de taxistas en Barcelona.
