Lessons of the Week! Idina Menzel, Ramin Karimloo & More

first_imgStop prancing around your apartment listening to “Pinot Noir”—it’s time for the Lessons of the Week, where we hash out the weirdest things we’ve learned. We now know which leading man will take off his clothes for a cookie, which new star spent her early days chilling with Blanche, Dorothy, Sophia and Rose, and which Broadway vet is a real space cadet. Ready? Let’s do this!You’re Six Degrees From Idina MenzelYou. Yes, you. If/Then star James Snyder made a handy video to help you figure out how we’re connected to every member of the musical’s cast, including the Frozen and Wicked favorite herself. Yes, we assume that means you can crash on Idina’s couch when you’re in town.Titus Andromedon’s Crushing on RaminTituss Burgess insists he’s nothing like his Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt alter ego Titus Andromedon, but both dudes have had an amazing week. Tituss can’t go to the 99-cent store without being recognized, while Titus is trying to set up a pinot noir date with his Broadway crush, Les Miz star Ramin Karimloo. Get in line, Andromedon.Christine Dwyer Drinks Frog WaterWicked leading lady Christine Dwyer is really serious about this green thing—before the show, she drinks a leafy, swamp-like concoction that can only be described as “an ecosystem.” Hmm, it looks suspiciously like the habitat where Kara Lindsay keeps her new frogs. Hey, Kermit said it best.Douglas Sills Will Strip For RugelachSome Broadway stars will get naked at the drop of a hat (case in point: here, here and here), but Living on Love star Douglas Sills’ nudity comes at a price. If you provide the rugelach, he’ll drop trou. Hmm, we wonder if this works on other Broadway stars, too. Titus Andromedon, you wanna go to the Imperial Theatre and conduct an experiment?Sierra Boggess Has a Great ServeIt’s no secret that It Shoulda Been You headliner and Broadway.com vlogger Sierra Boggess is multitalented—she’s got a beautiful voice, she can vinyasa like a boss and she has the most gorgeous red hair we’ve ever seen. But you really haven’t lived until you’ve seen her volleyball serve. Sierra: 1, Us: 0.Kelsey Grammer Is Six Years OldIf we had to guess, we’d say Finding Neverland star Kelsey Grammer is about 60 (OK, fine, we checked his Wikipedia page). But the Frasier favorite insists he’s actually six years old—or at least that’s what he tells his kids. Sorry, Kelsey, you’re still not getting an invite to the ball pit.Jessica Keenan Wynn’s a Pal & ConfidanteThe Heathers meanie is now playing Carole King’s bestie in Beautiful, but we had no idea she’s also BFFs with four gray-haired gals in Miami. Wynn made her professional debut as an infant on an episode of Golden Girls. This is the coolest obscure credit since Patti LuPone’s laundromat musical! YouTube video or it didn’t happen.Sarah Brightman Has a Space PlaylistIn this week’s space cadet news, The Phantom of the Opera star Sarah Brightman is still preparing to blast off. Mascara? Check. Hairspray? Check. Original song written by Andrew Lloyd Webber? Check. Yep, she’s officially ready. But wait, if this spaceship breaks the sound barrier, how will we get to hear the high E?Sutton Foster Wanted to Be a PrincessHow do you get a job in publishing? According to Sutton Foster’s new series Younger, you pretend you’re 26 and hope no one figures out you’re a liar. But if Foster could go back to her twenties, she admits she’d love to play Belle in Beauty and the Beast. It’s not too late, Sutton! Forty-year-olds can be Disney princesses, too.Audra McDonald’s Going For Tony #7’Night, Mother with Oprah may be off the table, but Audra McDonald has already lined up her new Broadway gig in Shuffle Along, which is slated to begin performances March 16, 2016 at the Music Box Theatre.

Barbados to Allow Free Education to CARICOM Nationals

first_imgBridgetown, BARBADOS – (CMC) – The Barbados government says it is moving ahead with advancing elements of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Single Market and Economy (CSME) including free access to public schools for students from CARICOM countries.The CSME allows for the free movement of capital, goods, skills, and labour across the regional integration grouping and a government spokesperson said in a statement that the latest move “means that all CARICOM nationals under the age of 16, who reside in Barbados, will be afforded access to government nursery, primary and secondary schools without being charged tuition fees.“CARICOM students will not be required to have student visas. However, they will pay all fees that are applicable to Barbadians students. This exemption, however, does not extend to post-secondary, vocational nor tertiary level education. In addition, CARICOM students will not qualify to be granted scholarships and exhibitions,” the spokesperson noted.It said that in addition, at least one parent or one legal guardian must be residing in Barbados under an approved Immigration Status in order to access the tuition-free provision now afforded to CARICOM nationals, namely the Status of Citizen, Permanent Resident, Immigrant, or Reside and Work.“The elimination of student visas for CARICOM nationals will not remove the requirement to monitor non-nationals in the school system.“It should be noted that upon their first entry into the Barbadian school system, the parent or legal guardian of the CARICOM non-national child will be required to produce to the Ministry of Education a letter from the Immigration Department confirming that the child qualifies for tuition-free treatment,” the spokesperson said.It was noted that this requirement of a letter will only apply to a first entry into the school system and not any subsequent transfer to a different school.last_img read more

John Downey in bid to have murder case dropped

first_imgA 67-year-old man charged with murdering two British soldiers in 1972 is set to mount a legal bid to get the case thrown out, a court has heard.John Downey’s lawyer confirmed plans to contest prosecution attempts to have him stand trial for the car bomb attack which killed Ulster Defence Regiment members Alfred Johnston and James Eames in Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh.Concerns were raised about a European Arrest Warrant used to detain him in the Republic of Ireland in October last year. Defence solicitor John Finucane told Belfast Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday: “Even without exploring these issues (the committal proceedings) are going to be contested.”Downey, with an address in Creeslough, Co Donegal,  faces prosecution after losing an extradition battle.He exhausted all appeals before handing himself into the authorities last month.Lance Corporal Johnston and Private Eames died in an explosion on the Irvinestown Road in August 1972. They were carrying out checks on a car when a command wire initiated device was detonated, killing them instantly.The bomb went off as a truck carrying 13 off-duty soldiers approached, blowing it onto its side and injuring some of the troops inside.That lorry is believed to have been the primary target for the attack.Downey is also charged with aiding and abetting an explosion likely to endanger life.A previous court was told his fingerprint was allegedly found on insulating tape used to construct the device. Although the original impression has since degraded, photographs of it were said to have been used in “multiple comparisons”.They included analysis carried out on prints taken from Downey earlier this month, and also after his arrest at Gatwick Airport in 2013 for the 1982 bombing at London’s Hyde Park.He had been due to stand trial for the murder of four Royal Household Cavalry men in the Hyde Park attack.But the case against him collapsed after it emerged that he received a letter of assurance from the British Government that he was not wanted for any offences. The prosecution now intends to rely on the fingerprints taken at Gatwick as evidence in the current case.Downey remains in custody after being refused bail at the High Court in Belfast.His case is due to be reviewed again later this month, when a date for a preliminary enquiry was expected to be set.But it emerged on Tuesday that the Public Prosecution Service (PPS) is seeking to bring those proceedings forward by a week.Mr Finuncane expressed opposition to the move, and sought approval for two barristers to represent his client due to the circumstances and complexities of the case.“There are issued that have arisen as a result of having sight of the papers,” he told the court.“There’s also an issue which has arisen with regards to the European Arrest Warrant itself.”Adjourning the case, District Judge Fiona Bagnall agreed to certify two defence counsel.She said: “It’s a unique and highly complex case.”John Downey in bid to have murder case dropped was last modified: November 12th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

How To Thrive In The Tech Industry For Decades

first_imgHow to Write a Welcome Email to New Employees? brian s hall Worried about your longevity as a worker in the fast-moving tech industry? What you need is some inspiration from John Sloan.Who’s John Sloan? He’s the man pictured in a photo I used in a recent post on 10 Technology Skills That Will No Longer Help You Get A Job. (See that photo below – or on the iPad in the photo above.) While Sloan may look like a symbol of outdated technology in the older photo, he’s actually the polar opposite. As, in fact, the newer photo of him above should lead you to believe.Sloan, aka Chip Overclock, has not only participated in the many amazing, globe-spanning, nano-shrinking changes in computer tech over the past four decades, he has stayed current with the changes – and kept himself gainfully employed – by taking full responsibility for his own career and professional development.Pictures Tell The StoryThe picture below shows Sloan at Wright State University, Ohio, circa 1976. He would soon go on to earn his B.S. in computer science, and later his master’s degree. He’s seated next to an IBM System/360 Model 65. Why You Love Online Quizzes Related Posts 7 Types of Video that will Make a Massive Impac… Sloan, now 56, lives in Denver. Several of his friends saw my story and noticed the photo, and forwarded it to him, which prompted him to contact me. Sloan describes his current career as a “freelance product developer specializing in real-time and highly concurrent systems.” The photo at the top of this post shows Sloan next to his Mac Mini with Cinema Display. That’s a first-generation iPad he’s holding – displaying the original picture, no less.Why John Sloan’s Story MattersTalking to John Sloan made it clear that long-term survival in the tech industry was about much more than just mastering a specific set of skills. Instead, it’s all about taking personal responsibility for learning and adapting over the years and decades:ReadWrite: Getting a computer science degree in 1976 was an awfully forward-thinking move.John Sloan: It was the closest I could get to living in the kind of science fictional universe that I was reading about and watching on television. I still remember today watching the very first episode of the original Star Trek.ReadWrite: Are you currently employed?  John Sloan: I’m a self-employed, offering consulting and contracting through my one-man company, Digital Aggregates, and have been since 2006.ReadWrite: How do you stay connected to all the changes in the computer industry?John Sloan: I spend almost all my time (when not working with clients) on professional development. I read, I attend conferences, I learn new skills. This is the kind of professional development that companies simply no longer offer anymore to their regular employees. My company exists not just to service my clients, but to keep me current and employable.Favorite Tech And ToolsReadWrite: What technologies have you worked on over the years?John Sloan: I’ve had a lot of career success, almost all in the systems area, much of it working low in the software stack, close to bare metal. I’ve worked on IBM mainframes, PDP-11 minicomputers. Cray supercomputers [all the way] to huge distributed Linux systems. My current gig is developing a tiny PBX with Iridium transceivers that will allow flyers in business jets to make phone calls from anywhere in the world.ReadWrite: What are your favorite tech tools now? John Sloan: My iPhone 5. I have no idea how I’d live without it.ReadWrite: One of the big tech shifts has been the move to open source. How have you tackled this change?John Sloan: Open source has been very good to me. For several years now a lot of my income has come from hacking open source software ranging from various portions of the Apache software stack written in Java to the Linux kernel and various portions of the GNU software stack in C.The economics of open source is the most interesting part about it. Back in the mainframe days, you bought the hardware, and got the software and support for free. Now the hardware is almost free, the software is mostly free, and the support is how a lot of companies book revenue.  ReadWrite: What about the shift from desktop to mobile?John Sloan: Every time I pick up my iPhone 5 or my iPad, I feel like I’m in a science fiction movie. Same goes for the Android mobiles. I also have a Samsung Galaxy tablet. It’s astounding.Tech Advice For Young And OldReadWrite: Do you have any advice for workers who have been in the industry a long time?John Sloan: Do not trust your career and professional development to your employer. You absolutely must take charge of this yourself.ReadWrite: What about advice for those just starting out?John Sloan: No matter what technologies is being taught when a freshman enters university, they will almost certainly not be the ones being taught when that senior graduates. And whatever technologies that student learns will not be what he ends up needing expertise in when he enters the workforce. Continuous, life-long learning isn’t a buzzword, it’s a requirement.People who grasp specific technologies but can’t quickly learn new ones on their own are the ones who are going to be laid off or whose jobs are going to be outsourced.ReadWrite: Anything else you want to add?John Sloan: Hardly a day goes by in which my wife of nearly 30 years and I don’t remark on how lucky we’ve been. Just the other day one of my friends and former Bell Labs colleagues remarked that she was surprised that she still got paid good money to do what she loves to do. I feel the same way.Lead image courtesy of Flickr. Tags:#education#employment#Open Source#programming Growing Phone Scams: 5 Tips To Avoidlast_img read more

Punjab seeks Centre’s help to increase foodgrain storage

first_imgTo address the problem of inadequate covered storage space for foodgrains in the State, Punjab has sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s permission to construct 20 lakh metric tonne-capacity godowns.In a letter to the Prime Minister, Chief Minister Amarinder Singh urged him to direct the Union Food Ministry to “allow construction of 20 LMT-capacity covered godowns, under seven-year guarantee by the government and the Food Corporation of India, so that foodgrains may be stored scientifically in the State”.“Bumper crops during the last few seasons, coupled with slow pace of evacuation of foodgrains from Punjab, have resulted in acute shortage of covered storage space. As a result, more than 100 LMT of wheat, out of 280 LMT of foodgrains stocked in the State, are currently stored in the open,” wrote Capt. Amarinder, adding that the situation has worsened this year because of unseasonal rain in the State that led to the purchase of certain quantities of wheat under relaxed specifications.The Chief Minister pointed out that even though the FCI had approved the construction of an additional silo capacity of 21 LMT with railway sidings in the State, construction of the same may take four to five years or even more.last_img read more

Man fit to stand trial in girls death at BC high school

first_imgVANCOUVER — A British Columbia Supreme Court judge has ruled that a man accused of killing a 13-year-old girl in an Abbotsford high school is fit to stand trial.Gabriel Klein will remain at a psychiatric hospital for the duration of the trial instead of going to a pre-trial centre.Klein is charged with second-degree murder and aggravated assault in a November 2016 stabbing attack that killed the girl and wounded another.Associate Chief Justice Heather Holmes declared him unfit to stand trial last April because he suffers from schizophrenia, auditory hallucinations and paranoid delusions.The B.C. Review Board ruled Jan. 15 that he was fit to stand trial and Holmes agreed with requests from the Crown and defence on Thursday that she also declare him fit.Court heard that Klein is taking a new medication that has made it easier for him to understand court proceedings and communicate.The Canadian Presslast_img read more
