Direct from Broadway

first_imgHarvard College students looking for a little Broadway inspiration don’t have to make the four-hour bus ride to Manhattan. Thanks to a popular program sponsored by Harvard’s Office for the Arts (OFA), Broadway comes to them.On Friday, three lucky undergraduates had only to brave bitter temperatures and a quick trip across campus to Agassiz Theatre in Radcliffe Yard to perform for the two-time Tony winner Christine Ebersole.Since 1975 the OFA has sponsored Learning from Performers, an interactive series that offers students a chance to engage with professionals from a range of artistic fields. In addition to lectures, discussions, seminars, residencies, and performances, the program also hosts master classes — opportunities for students to receive on-campus coaching from film and theater veterans. Renowned directors, dancers, singers, songwriters, visual artists, and musicians have taken part in the program.Last week it was Ebersole’s turn to briefly step away from the spotlight to offer a nervous trio of aspiring artists her suggestions and support in an OFA master class. (The songstress was back on stage the following evening for a Sanders Theatre performance sponsored by the Celebrity Series of Boston.)Mark Mauriello ’15 kicked off the afternoon session with the emotional song “Perfect,” about a failing relationship. Praising the performance, Ebersole suggested a type of delicate detachment. As the storyteller, the singer must convey the feeling, she said, but also maintain some emotional distance.“When you do the work for us, then we don’t get to experience the emotion, it’s a funny, weird chemistry,” she told Mauriello.Ebersole encouraged Lily Glimcher ’14 (pictured) in her critique of Glimcher’s performance.Ebersole encouraged Lily Glimcher ’14 to try for a softer sound at the moving climax of “Lying There,” from “Edges.” “When you sang it really loud, it took me out of the experience. … What if you almost did it as a whisper?”Glimcher obliged. Her effort brought Ebersole to tears. “Did you see that?” she said. “You made me cry.”Ebersole’s stage and screen credits include roles on the soap operas “Ryan’s Hope” and “One Life to Live,” a stint on “Saturday Night Live” in the early 1980s, and appearances in the Oscar-winning films “Amadeus” and “Tootsie.”A much-lauded Broadway regular, she won the Tony for best leading actress in a musical in 2001 for her work in “42nd Street,” and again in 2007 for her powerful turn as both Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter, “Little Edie” Beale, in “Grey Gardens.”Ebersole praised David Sheynberg ’16 for his “beautiful sound” during his performance of “Good Thing Going” from “Merrily We Roll Along.” Referencing her own career, she urged the freshman to think about his approach to the craft as a type of personal journey.“It’s never an event; it’s always a process,” she said. “It’s peeling the layers of the onion so you get down to you. … Then the power of who you are and what you bring to it … that’s what gets transmitted.”Ebersole also interacted with the crowd, at one point responding with nuanced perspective to a question about technology and the trend toward the use of amplification in theatrical performances. The mother of three teenagers, she said that she has had to change with the times and be open to new advances and trends in music and sound systems.“I am always trying to stay open to what’s happening,” she said.After the class, Glimcher praised the Harvard program for connecting students with performers. “Any opportunity to get an outside eye of someone who doesn’t know you so well … and to just hear honest feedback … is incredible.”Ebersole, who found success on Broadway after hearing in Hollywood she was “over the hill,” urged students to follow their dreams, but cautioned that rejection is part of the process. “You’ve got to love it, really, really love it,” she said, “and be willing to commit to it in the face of the world telling you ‘no.’”last_img read more

Switzerland boss warns Leicester’s Inler he faces Euro 2016 omission

first_imgSwitzerland coach Vladimir Petkovic has told skipper Gokhan Inler he must force his way into Leicester’s title-chasing team if he wants to go to the Euro 2016 finals.The 31-year-old midfielder will play no part against either the Republic of Ireland or Bosnia in his country’s friendlies over the Easter weekend after being left out of the squad for the first time in ten years.Inler has fallen from grace after making just 10 appearances and only three Barclays Premier League starts for the Foxes following his £5million summer arrival from Napoli, and with Claudio Ranieri’s men five points clear at the top of the table, the chances of him breaking into the side look remote.However, that is the challenge from Petkovic.He said: “It was not an easy decision to leave out a player with 90 caps, but it was a decision of the moment and it was a decision taken by me for the benefit of the team.“I spoke to Gokhan about this and a lot of people in the club as well, and they all know if the situation changes, if he plays more than he has been doing recently, there is still a possibility he will join the team again.“This is not only for Gokhan Inler, that is the idea for any other player. I want them to make it difficult for me to make decisions for Euro 2016.“If Inler is in full shape, he can contribute a lot to the team and all the players have got used to having him around.“But there is always a chance for other players to show themselves and to take over part of his role. That’s how football goes.”Asked if Inler regretted his decision to join Leicester, Petkovic added: “It’s not important to look back.“At this moment, he needs to focus on tomorrow and on today. You have to do today everything you can to be better tomorrow, and that’s what’s important for Gokhan Inler right now.”Like the bulk of Petkovic’s players, Inler is playing – or in his case, not playing – abroad, with Germany, Italy, England and Greece among their adopted homes.That is of benefit in as much as it allows the players to gain experience of different types of football, although the coach revealed it has its drawbacks too.He said: “The advantage of this situation is the players have the opportunity to learn a lot. They can cope with different styles of playing – that’s very good for the team.“The disadvantage is I have to travel a lot and I got a cold when I was in England the last time.” Gokhan Inler, who has 90 caps, was left out of their recent squad for the first time in ten years 1last_img read more

Joburg cheapest city for expats

first_imgJohannesburg has beaten 142 countries in a global cost of living survey, making it the cheapest city in the world for expatriates. (Image: Chris Kirchhoff, MediaClubSouthAfrica.com. For more photos, visit the image library.) Nicky RehbockJohannesburg may be the economic powerhouse of South Africa, but living in the city can be dirt cheap, if you’re an expatriate.This is according to the findings of a recent global survey, which has declared Johannesburg the most affordable city in the world for foreigners.The Cost of Living survey, compiled in March 2009 by consulting and investment firm Mercer, covers 143 cities across six continents and measures the comparative cost of more than 200 items in each location, including housing, transport, food, clothing, household goods and entertainment.It is the world’s most comprehensive living cost survey and has been set up to help multinational companies and governments work out compensation allowances for expat employees.In the survey, New York is used as the base city and scores 100 points. All cities in the poll are then compared against the city, also known as The Big Apple.Topping the charts as the most expensive city is Tokyo, with a score of 143.7 points. Johannesburg is nearly three times cheaper, with a score of 49.6.To put this in perspective, compare the price of a hamburger in the two cities: in Johannesburg you can get one for as little as R20 (US$2.50), while in the Japanese capital you’re looking at the hefty price of R55 ($7) per burger.Osaka was rated the second most expensive city – making Japan the only country with two cities in the top 10. Moscow was third, Geneva fourth and Hong Kong fifth.In 2008 Asunción in Paraguay was rated as the cheapest destination and Moscow the most expensive.Nathalie Constantin-Métral, senior researcher at Mercer, said currency fluctuations, including a stronger dollar, have affected this year’s global rankings.“Many currencies, including the euro and British pound, have weakened considerably against a strong US dollar, causing a number of European cities to plummet in the rankings,” she said.London dropped 13 places from last year to be the 16th most expensive city in the world, while Paris slipped one spot to 13th, according to Mercer.Due to the strengthening dollar, all US cities became more expensive. Los Angeles gained 32 places to 23rd and Washington moved 41 places to 66th.Most European cities became cheaper for expats. Warsaw experienced the most dramatic change, dropping from 35th to 113th place.Expat life also became cheaper in Australia, New Zealand and India. Sydney has dropped from 15th to 66th and Mumbai has slipped from 48th to 66th place.Chinese cities benefited as the yuan strengthened against most other currencies, said Mercer. Shanghai, Shenzhen and Guangzhou moved up to 12th, 22nd and 23rd respectively.Joburg’s rating a boon for tourismJohannesburg’s favourable rating has been welcomed by the local tourism industry.“The news of the influential poll will come as excellent news to Joburg as it gears up for the 2010 Fifa World Cup,” said Tshwane Malope of the Johannesburg Tourism Company.“The city has come a long way over the past decade and is growing a reputation as an events hotspot,” he added.Do you have any queries or comments about this article?

SA registers over 1-million new voters

first_img13 November 2013 South Africa registered over one-million first-time voters last weekend, Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) chairperson Pansy Tlakula said on Tuesday. Addressing the media in Centurion outside Pretoria, Tlakula said the voter registration weekend had gone smoothly, with 2 512 219 people being assisted at the country’s 22 263 registration stations. “Of these, 1 088 015 (43%) were new voters registering for the first time. Their commitment to democracy has helped boost the overall registration levels to almost 77% of eligible voters, up from 73.6% before the weekend,” she said. The IEC chairperson said a further 1.7-million people (46.6%) used the opportunity to change their existing registration to a different voting station, and about 10.1% (253 098) re-registered at their existing voting station. Tlakula said the number of registered voters aged 18 to 19 tripled, from 167 535 prior to the weekend to 434 370. The registration percentage of 22.6% for this age group remained the lowest, and there was a need to attract a new generation of voters to the poll, she said. In terms of gender, the new registrations were in line with the general population in South Africa, with 53% being women and 47% being men. According to Tlakula, KwaZulu-Natal had the highest voter registration turnout with 620 864, followed by Gauteng (572 395), Eastern Cape (339 614), Western Cape (295 497), Mpumalanga (197 551), Limpopo (178 800), Free State (140 304), North West (116 438) and the Northern Cape (50 756). “We encourage all those who have not yet done so to register at our offices, which are situated mainly at municipal buildings, before next year’s general elections.” She said the IEC was deciding whether there would be another voter registration weekend. The IEC has set a target of getting two-million new registrations by the time the voters’ roll closes before next year’s general elections. Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

Trump criticisms spark more protests at NFL games

first_imgView comments MOST READ Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. E.T. returns to earth, reunites with grown-up Elliott in new ad  Read Next Defensive star Von Miller was among the large group of Denver Broncos who took a knee in Buffalo Sunday, where Bills running back LeSean McCoy stretched during the anthem.“We felt like President Trump’s speech was an assault on our most cherished right, freedom of speech,” said Miller, who normally steers clear of politics and social issues.Dozens of more players protested before the Raiders-Redskins game, the final one of the day and not far from the White House in Landover, Maryland. All but a handful of Raiders sat on their bench and seven Redskins took a knee while their teammates stood arm-in-arm along with owner Dan Snyder and president Bruce Allen.In Chicago, the Pittsburgh Steelers stayed in the tunnel except for one player, Army veteran Alejandro Villanueva, who stood outside with a hand over his heart. Both the Seahawks and Titans stayed inside until after the national anthem was over in Nashville, a throwback to the pre-2009 NFL when teams, not the league, set pre-game policy regarding players standing on the sideline for the anthem.A handful of NFL players had been continuing Kaepernick’s protest this season, but that ballooned Sunday following Trump’s two-day weekend rant. It began with the president calling for NFL protesters to be fired and continued Saturday when he rescinded a White House invitation for the NBA champion Golden State Warriors over star Stephen Curry’s criticism.The president’s delving into the NFL protests started by Kaepernickbrought new attention and angered many players who took one insult as a personal attack on their mothers.“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, you’d say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out! He’s fired,’” Trump said to loud applause Friday night at a rally in Huntsville, Alabama.“I’m a son of a queen,” Falcons defensive lineman Grady Jarrett said.Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady was among the New England Patriots who locked arms in solidarity in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Aaron Rodgers did the same with his teammates in Green Bay.“Standing with locked arms is good, kneeling is not acceptable. Bad ratings!” Trump tweeted Sunday.

A handful of teams stayed off the field until after “The Star-Spangled Banner” to avoid the issue altogether.As he prepared to board Air Force One to return to Washington from New Jersey, Trump said the players protesting the anthem were “very disrespectful to our country” and called again on owners to stop what he considers unpatriotic displays in America’s most popular sport.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“This has nothing to do with race,” Trump said. “This has to do with respect for our country.”The president’s attack on athletes turned the anthems — usually sung during commercials — into must-watch television shown live by the networks and Yahoo!, which streamed the game in London. In some NFL stadiums, crowds booed or yelled at players to stand. There was also some applause. Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa The NFL and its players, often at odds, used Sunday’s anthems to show unity. One of Trump’s biggest supporters in the NFL, Patriots owner Robert Kraft, joined the chorus when he expressed “deep disappointment” with Trump.“I like Bob very much. He’s my friend. He gave me a Super Bowl ring a month ago. So he’s a good friend of mine and I want him to do what he wants to do,” Trump said. “… We have great people representing our country, especially our soldiers our first responders and they should be treated with respect.“And when you get on your knee and you don’t respect the American flag or the anthem.”The protests started more than a year ago when former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand during the anthem as a protest of police treatment of minorities. This season, no team has signed him, and some supporters believe NFL owners are avoiding him because of the controversy.A handful of white players didn’t stand Sunday, but the vast majority of those actively protesting were black.ADVERTISEMENT The Pittsburgh Steelers side of the field is nearly empty during the playing of the national anthem before an NFL football game between the Steelers and Chicago Bears, Sunday, Sept. 24, 2017, in Chicago.President Donald Trump’s criticism of players who kneel during the national anthem sparked angry protests around the National Football League Sunday, as about 200 players sat, knelt or raised their fists in defiance.A week ago, just six players protested.ADVERTISEMENT In Detroit, anthem singer Rico Lavelle took a knee at the word “brave,” lowering his head and raising his right fist. In Nashville, anthem singer Meghan Linsey, took a knee as she finished singing.Jets Chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson, whose brother, Woody, is the ambassador to England and one of Trump’s most ardent supporters, called it “an honor and a privilege to stand arm-in-arm unified with our players during today’s national anthem” in East Rutherford, New Jersey.The issue reverberated across the Atlantic, where about two dozen players took a knee during the playing of the U.S. anthem at Wembley Stadium.“We stand with our brothers,” Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs said. “They have the right and we knelt with them today. To protest, non-violent protest, is as American as it gets, so we knelt with them today to let them know that we’re a unified front.”Jaguars owner Shad Khan and players on both teams who were not kneeling remained locked arm-in-arm throughout the playing of the anthem and “God Save The Queen.” No players knelt during the British anthem.“Me taking a knee doesn’t change the fact that I support our military, I’m a patriot and I love my country,” Bills linebacker Lorenzo Alexander said. “But I also recognize there are some social injustices in this country and today I wanted to take a knee in support of my brothers who have been doing it.”Alexander said he’ll go back to standing for the anthem next week.“I just wanted to show them that I was with them today, especially in the backdrop of our president making the comments about our players, about their mothers,” Alexander said. “And then you put that in conjunction with how he tried to gray-area Nazism and KKK members as being fine people, I had to take a knee.”The National Hockey League’s reigning champion Pittsburgh Penguins announced Sunday they’ve accepted a White House invitation from Trump. The Penguins said they respect the office of the president and “the long tradition of championship team visiting the White House.”Before Game 1 of the WNBA Finals in Minneapolis on Sunday, the Los Angeles Sparks left the floor while the Minnesota Lynx stood arm-in-arm. The Sparks returned to a chorus of boos when the song was finished. Fire hits houses in Mandaluyong City Trump also mocked the league’s crackdown on illegal hits, suggesting the league had softened because of its safety initiatives.Kahn, who was among the NFL owners who chipped in $1 million to the Trump inauguration committee, said he met with his team captains before kickoff in London “to express my support for them, all NFL players and the league following the divisive and contentious remarks made by President Trump.”Among the strongest criticisms of the president Sunday was this from Saints coach Sean Payton: “I’m disappointed in the comments that were made. I think we need a little bit more wisdom in that office,” he said of the White House. “I want that guy to be one of the smarter guys in the room and it seems like every time he’s opening up his mouth it’s something that is dividing our country and not pulling us together.”last_img read more

Lewis Hamilton’s F1 legacy still growing

first_imgMercedes driver Lewis Hamilton, of Britain, poses for photos next to his car at the Hermanos Rodriguez racetrack in Mexico City, Thursday, Oct. 26, 2017. The Mexican Grand Prix is set for Sunday. (AP Photo/Moises Castillo)MEXICO CITY — The checkered flag is two days away, yet the underlying expectation at the Mexican Grand Prix is that Lewis Hamilton’s fourth career Formula One championship is on course for the inevitable.Whether it’s this week or next month, Hamilton’s nearly insurmountable lead over Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel has him facing constant questions about his legacy in the sport and where he stands among Formula One’s greatest drivers.ADVERTISEMENT View comments LATEST STORIES “He won races when the car was good, and when it was not so good,” Alonso said.Williams driver Felipe Massa, who Hamilton beat to the title with a final-lap dash in Brazil in 2008, this week already put Hamilton on the level with Schumacher and Senna.“He’s there,” Massa said.“It’s really made me happy to hear nice things from other drivers,” Hamilton said. “They know how hard it is to be consistent and perform.”Hamilton has neared the 2017 title by chasing down Vettel over the second half of the season. That’s a sharp contrast to the past three years, when Hamilton’s biggest rival was former teammate Nico Rosberg in the Mercedes garage. Those tension-filled seasons fractured a childhood friendship.Part of Hamilton’s legacy will be his persona off the track. He’s a global star for Formula One as he leads a rock star’s lifestyle with world travels, hobnobbing with other celebrities and a social media presence that draws millions of followers. After the Mexico race, he and friends plan to visit the ruins of the ancient Inca city of Machu Picchu in Peru.Rosberg’s quest for the F1 title left him exhausted by season’s end and he abruptly retired. Hamilton seems ready to keep winning. He considers himself a wiser, better racer with more still to accomplish.“In 2008, I had all the natural talent I have now but I don’t have the experience,” Hamilton said. “It’s been more enjoyable (now). I’m more comfortable in my own skin.”How long before he retires?“Definitely don’t want to be here at 40,” Hamilton said. “I anticipate a couple more years.” Victolero hopes to pick up the right fit in the rookie draft Read Next MOST READ Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 Hamilton tries to steer the conversation toward winning a single race, but it always returns to measuring his place in F1 history.

If he had the chance to race in safe conditions, he would have won more,” Hamilton said. “I feel very proud to have my name mentioned with his.”Formula One is full of disputes over who were the top drivers of different eras, and how they would fare against each other. Hamilton won his first title with McLaren, but his most dominant years have come with a Mercedes team that has had no peers in the hybrid engine era. Of his 62 career victories, a mark second only to Schumacher’s 91, 40 have come since 2014.“He’s a champion of this generation,” said McLaren driver Fernando Alonso, himself a former two-time champion.

New York took its largest lead of the game at 59-31 on Mitchell Robinson’s free throws with 6:04 left in the second quarter.“We were moving the ball, getting out in transition and playing together,” said Dotson, who was 6 of 7 from 3-point range. “When we move it like that, we get more shots and we are more efficient.”Chicago scored the next six points and pulled to 64-47 at halftime.The Bulls drew within single digits for the first time since midway through the first quarter when Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot hit three free throws to make it 93-84 with 9:24 remaining.Chicago then cut it to 94-89 on Walter Lemon Jr.’s layup with 7:51 left but the Knicks responded with the next six points and went on a 9-2 run to re-open a double-digit lead, 103-91.ADVERTISEMENT “The lesson is we have to start better,” Bulls coach Jim Boylen said. “I thought their halfcourt pace to start the game was better than ours. I thought their ball movement was better than ours, and then we kind of figured it out after that.”The Bulls got as close as 112-105 on Sampson’s two free throws with 46 seconds left, but they did not score again.Robinson added 14 points and 10 rebounds for the Knicks.Wayne Selden Jr. scored 11 points and Luwawu-Cabarrot finished with 10 for Chicago, while Shaquille Harrison had 10 rebounds.Kornet was 8 of 11 from the field and 5 of 7 from beyond the arc as the Knicks shot 47.4% on 3-pointers and 50% overall.
