John Cameron Mitchell has extended his run in Hedwig and the Angry Inch by six weeks and will now headline the Broadway production through April 26. The original star and co-creator of the musical started performances at the Belasco Theatre on January 21. Casting for the next Hedwig will be announced shortly; Tony winner Lena Hall continues in the role of Yitzhak. Related Shows Mitchell wrote the book for Hedwig alongside composer Stephen Trask, and the stars performed early versions of the musical at Don Hill’s and the Westbeth Theatre Center. Mitchell later starred in the off-Broadway incarnation of the hit musical at the Jane Street Theatre in 1998. He directed, wrote and starred in the 2001 film adaptation of Hedwig, garnering a Golden Globe nomination for his performance. Mitchell has appeared on Broadway in The Secret Garden, Big River and Six Degrees of Separation, and was most recently seen on the small screen in Girls, playing David Pressler-Goings, Hannah’s book publisher.

Brazilian Armed Forces Help At-Risk Children Through Forces in Sports

first_img Inspired by the military In 2014, about 15,000 students participated in the program. While the military members in Profesp do not recruit students, there is a path available for youngsters who are interested in military careers. Profesp instructor Jaqueline Rossato helps monitor students’ performance at the program and at school. “They really appreciate everything they have here, because they have so little in their lives and they don’t want to lose anything,” said Rossato, who has been working with the project since 2010. At the Afonsos Air Base in Rio de Janeiro, Project Colibri joined with Forces in Sports in 2010. That project provides physical activities and educational programs for youngsters between the ages of 13 and 15 who are interested in competing for spots in the military academies, such as the Air Cadet Training School (Epcar) and the Naval Academy. Military personnel observe the monthly progress of the youngsters in the program. The combination of physical activities, mentoring, and healthy meals helps improve the students’ development and increases their attention spans. Like a miniature military unit, the boys and girls march in formation, their arms extended before them, eyes fixed on Brazilian Army Staff Sgt. Angelo de Alvarenga Reis Perini. “The project began with a test group in 2003 with 450 children, and it has grown every year since then,” Barros said. “We want to reach 20,000 by 2016.” Sports is a key component of the initiative. For example, at Nova Santa Rita’s Morretes neighborhood, the students play soccer (both outdoors and indoors), volleyball, and basketball. Soccer and cook-outs “It’s really great to see how dedicated these children are. It’s become a routine for us to have our Colibri students win second and third places entering the military academies,” Lessa bragged. It is satisfying to appreciate the Armed Forces of Brazil expanding their actions in defense of new generations, who today are threatened and at risk of a uncertain future by the influence of market greed from drug trafficking and moral degradation. The Brazilian example is excellent for friendly nations and must be disseminated by the U.S. Southern Command, Ney de Araripe Sucupira – Deputy Chief of the Graduates Association of the War College in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. The program provides two meals a day to the participants, and on Thursdays, there is a celebration for the children with a cook-out and chocolate cake. Young people love the sports and other activities. “The first steps include a nutritionist and help with schoolwork,” Lessa said.

José Ferreira de Barros, the initiative’s national coordinator on the Defense Ministry side. The military members who participate in Profesp do not recruit youngsters or anyone else.

3 myths about credit unions

first_imgThe TV show MythBusters explores, tests, and ultimately confirms or debunks myths and urban legends. Thanks to the successful comedic duo on the show, myths such as “all men prefer blondes” and “it’s easy to take candy from a baby” have been debunked. While having confirmation that a person’s tongue will stick to a frozen metal pole is important, we thought we would explore a topic more useful to our readers – 3 credit union myths, and determine if they are “confirmed,” “plausible,” or “busted.”MYTH 1: “Membership” is a restrictive term that implies becoming a member is difficult or exclusive.The term “membership” is crucial to credit unions as it sets them apart from other financial institutions that have customers, not members. Having members portrays the idea that a credit union is not a privately held, for-profit business. Rather, a credit union is a cooperative organization in place for the greater good of all its stakeholders.Historically CUs were closed institutions, where certain criteria was required for membership. SEG-based (or Select Employee Group) charters set employment, church affiliation, and career status as factors that determined if you could join a credit union. Some credit unions still operate in this manner, while others have a community charter and are not closed. Field of membership (FOM) rules and regulations are also constantly being updated and changed. This causes confusion with attracting new members, especially if the name of your community-based credit union dates back to when you were a SEG-based CU. However, the pros of using the term membership, along with education on what benefits it has, outweigh the cons. Therefore, we deem this myth BUSTED. continue reading » 55SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Musk ‘restarting’ California Tesla factory, defying authorities

first_imgWooed by Texas On Monday, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin voiced support for Tesla’s effort to reopen its factory and a Texas county said it would welcome the firm.”I agree with Elon Musk,” Mnuchin, the top US economic official, told CNBC television.”He’s one of the biggest employers and manufacturers in California, and California should prioritize doing whatever they need to do to solve those health issues so that he can open quickly and safely.”The US administration is pushing a reopening of the world’s largest economy, battered by weeks of lockdown, even as the daily death toll has generally been rising by 1,000 to 2,500 in recent weeks.In Texas, one local official wasted little time in trying to woo the fast-growing car firm.Hidalgo County said Musk is more than welcome in the state, tweeting a letter from senior local official Richard Cortez.”We no longer have a shelter-at-home mandate.” Cortez said in his letter. “All that is necessary is for you to pick a location.”The official noted that Musk is already familiar with South Texas because a launch facility of his other company, SpaceX, is nearby.Musk has been raging on Twitter for days about his unsuccessful efforts to restart production, claiming the ban violates “our Constitutional freedoms & just plain common sense!”In late April, he delivered an expletive-laden diatribe during an earnings update call in which he dubbed coronavirus restrictions “fascist.” “I will be on the line with everyone else. If anyone is arrested, I ask that it only be me.”Musk said, moments later, that state officials had approved the reopening but that the move had been blocked by local authorities.”California approved, but an unelected county official illegally overrode,” he said. “Also, all other auto companies in US are approved to resume. Only Tesla has been singled out. This is super messed up!”Musk’s move comes amid rising disputes over the pace of easing the lockdowns imposed by states to contain the deadly coronavirus outbreak. Over the weekend, Musk threatened to move Tesla’s headquarters and factory out of California as a result of the standoff.”Frankly, this is the final straw. Tesla will now move its HQ and future programs to Texas/Nevada immediately,” Musk tweeted as part of a series of angry messages just before the company filed the lawsuit seeking to force authorities to allow a reopening.Following Musk’s statement, Alameda County’s office of emergency services said Tesla was only allowed to maintain “minimum basic operations” until officials approve a plan and that it expected a proposal to be submitted by the company later in the day.”We are addressing using the same phased approach used for other businesses which have violated the [shutdown] order in the past, and we hope that Tesla will likewise comply without further enforcement measures,” the county statement said. Tesla chief Elon Musk said Monday he is resuming production at the company’s California auto assembly plant, defying authorities and escalating a feud over the Pacific state’s pandemic shutdown.Musk made the announcement on Twitter after several days of raging online and a lawsuit seeking to resume operations at the factory.”Tesla is restarting production today against Alameda County rules,” Musk said in a tweet.

Governor Wolf Announces State Investment to Restore Flood-Damaged Muncy Creek, Protect Public Drinking Water Supply

first_imgGovernor Wolf Announces State Investment to Restore Flood-Damaged Muncy Creek, Protect Public Drinking Water Supply January 09, 2019 Environment,  Press Release,  Public Health Harrisburg, PA – The Wolf Administration today announced grant funding to implement the Muncy Creek Streambank Restoration and Protection Project located in Hughesville Borough and Wolf Township, Lycoming County. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) awarded a 2019 Growing Greener grant award of $327,284 to the Lycoming County Commissioners for the work.The project will stabilize 500 feet of streambank that has been eroded by numerous flood events, sending an estimated 4,000 tons of sediment downstream over the past seven years. The stream has migrated close to a well pump house that provides public drinking water to 2,900 area residents. The site is vulnerable to additional damage and the public water supply well is at risk of total loss if action is not taken.“This project to correct severe streambank erosion will also protect critical public drinking water infrastructure and reduce sediment pollution in the Chesapeake Bay watershed,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “Lycoming County has experienced flooding events with significant impacts over several consecutive years. Restoring this section of Muncy Creek and stopping this erosion will provide a substantial benefit to the community.”During the grant application review process, subsequent flooding carved Muncy Creek more than six feet closer to the water supply well, increasing the project cost over initial estimates and making the danger to public infrastructure more acute. A portion of the access road to the well house has already been washed away.“This award is an opportunity for multiple levels of government to work together efficiently, as conditions and project costs have changed on the ground,” said DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell.Streambank restoration has been shown to improve the biological integrity of a stream by reducing pollution runoff. Muncy Creek is a trout-stocked fishery.One of the largest investments into Pennsylvania’s environment, Growing Greener projects have been instrumental in cleaning up abandoned mine lands, preserving farmland, and protecting and restoring watersheds throughout the commonwealth.The Growing Greener grant program is supported by the Environmental Stewardship Fund, which receives its funding from landfill tipping fees.center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Serie A: ‘Nothing to lose’ Lazio topple Inter to go second behind Juve

first_img Cristiano Ronaldo was rested, but veteran defender Giorgio Chiellini returned after a long injury layoff. “Cristiano had to rest, he cannot play 75 games a year between the national team and club, we decided to let him recuperate,” said Sarri. Sarri said 35-year-old skipper Chiellini had been desperate to get onto the pitch, after nearly six months off with a cruciate knee injury. “He said it yesterday, he has made six months of sacrifices and wanted to play the last quarter of an hour, and I found myself next to him when he had already taken off his tracksuit.” The champions did not have it all their own way against Brescia, who stay second-from-bottom, seven points from safety after extending their winless run to nine games. Enrico Alfonso went off after just 10 minutes following a knock to the head, with substitute Brescia keeper Lorenzo Andrenacci pulling off some fine saves. – Mertens lifts Napoli – In Sardinia, Napoli got back to winning ways with a Dries Mertens’ 65th-minute goal sealing a 1-0 success over Cagliari.

It was the 32-year-old’s 120th goal for Napoli, one short of Marek Hamsik’s all-time record, and five ahead of club legend Diego Maradona. “Dries is a phenomenon, a champion who makes difficult things seem simple,” said coach Gennaro Gattuso. Gattuso’s side overtake Cagliari, moving up to eighth, two points off the Europa League berths, as Cagliari drop to 11th place. Hellas Verona missed the chance to close in on fifth-placed Roma, who fell 2-1 at Atalanta on Saturday, with a goalless draw at Udinese.

We have nothing to lose,” said Inzaghi. “We know that Juventus and Inter are two great teams and we will do everything to fight to the end, knowing that it will be very difficult.” In a fiery clash in the Stadio Olimpico defender Ashley Young broke through just before the break with his first Serie A goal for Inter Milan after his move from Manchester United. The 34-year-old got his foot to tap-in off a rebound after Thomas Straskosha had cleared from former Lazio player Antonio Candreva.
