Queen Latifah will join the previously reported Laura Benanti, Alan Cumming, Sutton Foster, Kelli O’Hara and more at the New York Pops gala celebrating Kathleen Marshall and Rob Marshall on May 4 at Carnegie Hall. Here’s a quick roundup of stories you may have missed today and over the weekend. Thumbs Down to MadonnaWe’re borrowing a Broadway.com Show segment title for Odds & Ends today because it seemed appropriate. The Great White Way-bound Hamilton has had a multitude of celebrity visitors during its successful run at the Public and this weekend Madonna stopped by—unfortunately she didn’t hung hang up. The New York Daily News reports that the Material Girl spent much of the second act on her phone, causing creator and star Lin-Manuel Miranda to ban her from going backstage after. And turns out that she’s a repeat offender, having texted throughout a 2013 screening of 12 Years a Slave. Thumbs Down, Madonna, time for you to be an apologetic b*tch.Skylar Astin Set for James and the Giant PeachPitch Perfect star Skylar Astin will feature alongside the previously reported Megan Hilty, Christian Borle, Brian d’Arcy James and more Broadway faves on the James and the Giant Peach cast recording. The reference album of Justin Paul and Benj Pasek’s musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic will be released on April 21; the show premiered at Seattle Children’s Theatre in November 2013.Doctor Who’s David Tennant to Lead Richard II at BAMDoctor Who star David Tennant and the Royal Shakespeare company are heading to BAM. Richard II, Henry IV Parts I and II and Henry V will play in repertory at the Harvey Theater from March 24, 2016 through May 1. Helmed by Gregory Doran, the majority of the original cast members reprise their roles at BAM: Tennant returns in the title role of Richard II, Antony Sher and Jasper Britton play Falstaff and Henry IV, respectively, in the Henry IV plays, and Alex Hassell follows the journey of young Prince Hal, who reaches maturity as Henry V in the final play in the tetralogy.Jessie Mueller & Judith Light Tapped for Drama DeskTony winners Jessie Mueller and Judith Light will announce the 2015 Drama Desk Award nominations at 54 Below on April 23. As previously reported, Tony winner Laura Benanti will host the awards ceremony on May 31.Vanessa Hudgens & the Gigi Cast’s ‘Nochella’Vanessa Hudgens’ love affair with Coachella is well known, but of course she had to skip this year’s festival for Broadway’s Gigi. All was not lost, however, as she along with co-stars Corey Cott, Steffanie Leigh and Max Clayton recently headed to Central Park for their own “Nochella!”center_img View Commentslast_img read more

first_img View Comments Ruthie Henshall needs scant introduction as one of the West End’s leading musical theater lights, with credits spanning the Atlantic that include Chicago, Miss Saigon, Putting It Together and her current role as dance teacher Mrs. Wilkinson in Billy Elliot at the Victoria Palace Theatre. In recent weeks she has been coupling her work in the long-running hit with rehearsals for a two-performance-only gala staging of Follies on April 28 at the Royal Albert Hall, in which she plays Sally Durant Plummer opposite Christine Baranski as Phyllis Rogers Stone. Broadway.com caught up with the engaging, ever-busy star to talk juggling roles, Stephen Sondheim, and being a no-nonsense mum.You’re the latest in an illustrious line-up of women to play Mrs. Wilkinson. Was the offer a no-brainer for you?It was kind of a no-brainer! I don’t think of [roles] as creating versus taking over: what I do is look at the script and think, “Do I want to do this?” It doesn’t matter whether the show is 10 years or two minutes old. We’re performers and we want to work; we want to do what we love to do.Presumably you’d seen the show already?I did. I saw it on Broadway four or five years ago and took my daughters, who were 5 and 7 at the time. I hadn’t quite taken on board that there was lots of swearing, however much they cut it down for Broadway, and I remember sitting there and at the first swear word, my two girls looked over at me wide-eyed and said, “Oh my goodness, is that a naughty word?”What did you tell them?I said, “You know you’re not to repeat those,” and they both nodded and smiled and we went back to watching it; we absolutely loved it. It truly moves me, this show—it truly does.You’ve been in the musical during a significant year in its run.Absolutely: we had the special Billy Elliot Live performance which got made into a DVD so that was like being at opening night. We got to go back to work with [director] Stephen Daldry and [choreographer] Peter Darling and it also meant that our work was recorded for keeps whereas usually in the theater you do a performance and it’s gone. And people still stand at the end every night so the power of the piece is still there.What’s it like to have an ever-changing set of colleagues, given the numbers of kids who rotate through the cast?It makes it a very different show every night. We had one 14-year-old American boy who had left because his visa had run out and I was really upset saying goodbye to him because he had become a little friend, and we just recently said goodbye to another Michael and another Billy. That’s children for you: they get under your skin and in your heart.You’ve also added a two-performance-only concert staging of Follies to the mix.And Follies is quite a learn for only one day of work! But it’s such a wonderful piece and I love the whole concept of the paths you didn’t take, which that song [“The Road You Didn’t Take”] sums up for me: did you take the right path and what would have happened if you had taken a different one? Can you go back?What is it like reuniting with Alexander Hanson, who is playing Benjamin Stone to your Sally?We did [2008 West End musical] Marguerite together, and he’s so gorgeous and brilliant that I’m thrilled about that! He’s an easy one to be in love with, you know [laughs].You did the Sondheim revue Putting It Together on Broadway, with Carol Burnett and John Barrowman, so quite a few of these songs must have seemed like old friends.I’ve sung “Losing My Mind” and I did “Broadway Baby” once, and Carol and George Hearn sang several numbers from Follies in Putting It Together. So I’d heard the songs for years but it’s only when you actually put them in the context of the piece that they come alive and you get what they’re all about.Had you been angling to play Sally or did this come as a surprise?It came out of the blue. My agent said, “You’ve been offered this, is it something you want to do alongside Billy Elliot?” When I knew it was Follies and the Albert Hall, I said absolutely yes! I’m 48 now so I’m of an age where this is getting quite right [laughs].How do Sally’s vocal demands co-exist with those needed for Mrs. Wilkinson?There’s lots of belting and shouting in Billy Elliot so what I’ve now got to find is that lyrical side of my voice which can go to sleep when you’re not using it. It’s such a different part of the voice that I’ll be using that I’ve got to try and wake that up again.Have you previously met Christine Baranski, who is playing Phyllis?I haven’t but I love her. I really got into The Good Wife about two months ago and of course I’ve seen her in various musicals and on TV and film so I’m really excited about that. And, I mean, what a diverse cast: we’ve got people from Broadway [Betty Buckley], the West End [Peter Polycarpou], TV and film [Stefanie Powers], and daughters of legends [Lorna Luft]. I’m really excited about that.Does this make you want to do a proper run of the show?Now that I’ve read the script and have been singing the songs, I would love to do this part if and when they do another run of it. It’s such a beautiful piece.What’s happened to Tim [Howar, Henshall’s actor and musician ex-husband]?He’s on tour with his group Mike + the Mechanics so he’s being a rock star daddy and my girls just think the sun shines out of his bottom because he’s cool. I’m the one that disciplines them, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles [laughs].At the same time, I bet at least one of your daughters wants to be an actress!I fear so with Dolly, who’s the younger one and is exactly the same age [10] as I was when I got the bug. I suddenly at age 10 went, “I want to do this,” so I know what it’s like!last_img read more

first_imgWe have millions of stories to tell. Every credit union member – all 115 million in the United States – has a unique perspective on how they benefit from their credit union.  Then there are the 5,500 credit unions themselves that each have different narratives to share. The challenge is how we link our stories together to best illustrate the credit union difference to the stakeholders that impact us the most. At the Credit Union National Association (CUNA), we get to tell the credit union story. We share how our industry is different than other financial services peers. Sharing our difference is the best way for us to reshape regulations, push for legislation and secure big wins for our industry.Everyone in the movement, from CUNA and Leagues to credit unions, volunteers and members can be an advocate. In fact, it’s important that all these voices are heard when we tell our story. That’s what the CUNA/League 360-degree advocacy approach aims to achieve. Our 360-degree advocacy approach is a targeted effort that secured big wins for us last year. We pushed Congress to pass the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (S.2155) – a critical piece of bipartisan legislation to our industry. We also succeeded in gaining support for fewer CFPB rulemakings; better transparency and modernizations at NCUA; delayed implementation of the current expected credit losses standard; removing a harmful provision from the National Defense Authorization Act; standing with credit unions facing frivolous lawsuits under the Americans with Disabilities Act; and securing funding for several important community funds.CUNA and Leagues didn’t achieve these wins on our own – we fought along with so many credit union advocates to advance our priorities.  This year, we again have a lot on our advocacy agenda as we anticipate and respond to all the challenges the credit union movement faces. We’ll continue to press the CFPB and others to reduce the regulatory burden on credit unions; defend NCUA’s field-of-membership rules in court; support credit unions facing litigation; urge congress to modernize data breach requirements; and, as always, staunchly defend the credit union tax status.To achieve these goals, we’ll need to activate all our credit union advocates. How do you become an advocate? It’s simple. Bring your voice forward and tell your story. Join CUNA’s Member Activation Program (MAP), where you’ll be a part of ongoing communications and calls to action. This year, MAP is focusing on promoting the credit union difference and a host of other credit union issues. But MAP is not the only way you can become more involved in advocacy. Getting involved is as easy as responding to action alerts on the Grassroots Action Center, participating in CUNA and League advocacy trainings, build relationships with local credit union-friendly political candidates, give to the Credit Union Legislative Action Council (CULAC) or join the Credit Union Political Action Council (CUPAC). It’s not about doing everything, it’s about finding what issues spark your interest and passion. Your voice is powerful when you bring your experience and enthusiasm together to tell your story. CUNA and Leagues are here to help tell your story. The more people we engage with the better off we’ll all be in the credit union movement.Our cooperative credit union principles mean better rates and more opportunity for financial growth. Our members understand our difference. It’s why we’ve grown in membership to a record-breaking 115 million Americans. We stand for access and equity and fight every day for a better financial future. We need more voices to tell our story – our lawmakers and regulators can dismiss the few, but they can’t ignore the power of our movement. 58SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Jim Nussle Jim Nussle was named president and CEO of the Credit Union National Association in September 2014.

first_imgKLP said it blacklisted the Hong Kong-based Texwinca, which produces fabrics for the apparel industry, after discovering systematic violations of human rights in its factories in Vietnam.It also cut its holdings in Australian investment company WHSP and US tobacco firm Turning Point Brands due to the companies deriving revenue from coal and tobacco respectively.KLP said that, while it was not obliged to follow recommendations made by the Council on Ethics on the exclusion of companies, it usually did.“The assessment made by the Council on Ethics is thorough and well-documented, and we see no reason to deviate from it. The openness of Norges Bank and the Council on Ethics on which companies they exclude is important,” said Marte Siri Storaker, adviser for responsible investments at KLP’s investment arm, KLP Kapitalforvaltning.She added: “The companies are experiencing greater pressure to clean up when more investors are clear on which guidelines they have to deal with.” Norwegian pension fund Kommunal Landspensjonskasse (KLP) has excluded three companies for violations of human rights and involvement in the coal and tobacco sectors.Based on recommendations made by the Council on Ethics – the advisory body for Norway’s sovereign wealth fund – the NOK675.6bn (€69.6bn) pension provider excluded Texwinca Holdings, Washington H Soul Pattinson & Co (WHSP) and Turning Point Brands.KLP said it had only been invested in two of the three companies when the decision was put into effect on 13 March: it owned a stake worth around NOK2.9m in WHSP and roughly NOK96,700 in Texwinca Holdings.Norway’s NOK8.9trn sovereign wealth fund also had investments in Texwinca and WHSP but divested from them in January.last_img read more

first_imgChelsea Football Club has agreed a transfer deal with Real Madrid for the signing of Alvaro Morata.The deal, which is reportedly about £60m is now subject to personal terms and a medical, with the 24-year-old striker expected to sign a 5-year contract. Morata told Marca on Wednesday night: “I’m not disappointed about anything, I’ve won four titles here, but now I only think of putting on the Chelsea shirt,”“I am very happy, God willing, tomorrow I will be at Chelsea, a club that has always wanted me,”“I want to grow up, if I didn’t I wouldn’t have left. I’d like to thank Zidane and wish him luck for the upcoming season.” Chelsea turned their attention to Morata after missing out on Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United, the Spaniard becomes Chelsea’s fourth signing of this transfer window following the switch of midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, defender Antonio Rudiger and goalkeeper Willy Caballero to Stamford Bridge.Morata, who featured predominantly from the bench for Real Madrid last season, scored 20 goals for the Los Blancos en route winning the La Liga and the Champions League titles.Relatedlast_img read more

first_img The fleet of satellites is meant to provide global weather data to both the Air Force and NOAA, which have run separate polar-orbiting satellite programs since the 1960s. A joint military-civilian weather satellite program was to save taxpayers $1.8 billion. But problems with developing three of the 13 sophisticated instruments each satellite would carry have forced many of the overruns and delays, and more are likely, according to testimony released at the hearing. Raytheon Co., the subcontractor on the most problematic of the three instruments, has fired and replaced its technical team. Raytheon also has stretched out development of the instrument, an infrared camera crucial in predicting hurricanes, according to committee testimony and documents. Northrop-Grumman Corp. is the project’s main contractor. “The program was in my view built on an optimistic basis,” said NOAA’s administrator, Conrad C. Lautenbacher. He cited what he said were “aggressive” cost, schedule and technological readiness assumptions made at the program’s start. Lautenbacher said program officials are considering further delaying the launch of new satellites to allow time to perfect the instruments or simply sending stripped-down versions into orbit. As a stopgap, the United States eventually could acquire polar weather data from still-to-be-launched European satellites or from existing Pentagon satellites, if military efforts to extend their life are successful, officials said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! WASHINGTON – The United States could face gaps in forecasting and tracking hurricanes and other severe weather because of $3 billion in cost overruns and a three-year delay in a new satellite program, officials said Wednesday. The first of the next generation satellites may not be launched until 2012, the head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration told the House Science Committee. Should the last of the current fleet fail, the gap in weather data could reach four years. “This is a depressing case of failure and perhaps incompetence,” said Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif.

Rep. Vernon Ehlers said this year’s series of deadly hurricanes showed how vulnerable the U.S. is to severe weather. “We desperately need these new satellites to allow us to do an even better job of forecasting,” said Ehlers, R-Mich. Congressional investigators said the cost of the new satellite program is approaching $10 billion, compared with $6.5 billion estimated three years ago. It is “a program in crisis,” said David Powner of the Government Accountability Office. last_img read more

(Visited 26 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Anything goes in secular science news these days; it’s Alice in Wonderland meets Stephen Hawking, like Bob Berman said of modern cosmology (10/06/04).  Notice that mentioning current-day observational facts (like a meteor crater, a roundworm, or a fossil) does not validate a speculative claim.  The presence of a connectome in a roundworm says absolutely nothing about the human brain.  A crater on Europa says nothing about life.  Don’t be fooled; none of the observational props provide necessary or sufficient conditions to establish scientific validity to any claim that is (1) speculative and (2) incapable of verification.  You can observe a robin in your yard; that does not give you the right to claim in the name of science that it got its avian lung from the ancestor of a monitor lizard 270 million years ago.  “Well, it might have” is no excuse.  Scientists need to stop imagining things; they need bigger vigor in their scientific rigor.center_img Things no one could possibly ever know are being reported by science journals and news sites as things worthy of scientific faith.Here are some far-out speculations coming from science sites recently:Asteroid that killed dinosaurs might have sent life to Mars (BBC News).A roundworm’s mind may be the first step toward understanding the human brain (Live Science).One-way breathing may have evolved 270 million years ago (Live Science).An ancient “fig wasp” lived 100 million years before figs evolved (Science Daily).A meteor may have delivered the building blocks of life to Europa (Space.com).Exoplanet hunters may find ET by glut of alien corpses (New Scientist)Life was possible in the early universe in the cooling glow of the big bang (Nature News).  This weakens the Anthropic Principle and the need for a multiverse.For the last claim in the list above, comments to PhysOrg‘s version of the story came from many who felt the subject was far too speculative and therefore unscientific.And yet these same priests and prophets of scientism, who take on the role of delivering scientific truths to the masses, routinely become filled with rage at critics of Darwinism, claiming they are enemies of science, that they don’t understand science, that they are religious nuts.  Casey Luskin just reported on Evolution News & Views a new case where bullies threatened disruption of a non-credit, optional class on intelligent design vs. evolution, and succeeded in getting the administration to cancel the class (for fear of bad publicity).  Hypocrites; the bullies belong to a group that calls itself the “Freethought Oasis.”Not a single one of the claims in the above list could be demonstrated by observation or experiment.  The perhapsimaybecouldness index for each one is exorbitantly high to the point of fantasy.  Any one of us could speculate wildly on similar subjects with equal credibility.  Try it; it’s fun:last_img read more

first_img Continue Reading Previous SEGGER Embedded Studio adds support for 3rd party debug probes via GDB protocolNext Portwell: 19” system targets video wall applications The smart Inertial Measurement Unit BMI270 scores with increased system battery life and an improved accelerometer. Optimised for wearable and hearable applications, the BMI270 is available from Rutronik UK.The newest member of the BMI260 family of IMUs includes intuitive gesture, context and activity recognition with an integrated plug-and-play step counter. The IMU handles these functions independently of the main system processor, thus significantly extends system battery life. The powerful and accurate gesture and activity-recognition features therefore run in the ultra-low power domain, with current consumption of just 30µA. This reduces power consumption and enables extended battery charging intervals.

 The BMI270 measures only 2.5 x 3.0 x 0.8 mm3 , and is pin-to-pin compatible with the BMI160 and BMI260. The IMU is well suited for many types of wearable devices, such as smart clothes, smart shoes, smart glasses, wrist and ankle bands as well as hearables. Enabled by the new Bosch MEMS process technology, the BMI270 features a strongly improved accelerometer performance. It saves OEMs valuable time and costs during testing and manufacturing. The BMI270 is available in two application-specific versions, A and C: The A version detects wrist gestures (flick in/out, pivot up/push, arm up/down, and jiggle) for intuitive control of e.g. smart watches and is designed for Wear OS by GoogleTM. The C version has advanced features for recognizing context / activity change (standing, walking or being in a vehicle).Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components last_img read more
