Broadway Marquees Will Not Be Dimmed for Late Joan Rivers

first_img View Comments Rivers appeared on the Great White Way in Fun City, Broadway Bound and Sally Marr…and her escorts, for which she was nominated for a Tony Award. She was reportedly in talks to reprise her performance in Sally Marr, which she wrote alongside Erin Sanders and Lonny Price. In 1959, she starred on stage in the off-Broadway play Driftwood opposite a relatively unknown Barbra Streisand. Of late, she was most known for her work as co-host on E!’s Fashion Police and the WE TV reality series Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?. “Under our criteria,” Broadway League executive director Charlotte St. Martin told the newspaper, “People need to have been very active recently in the theater, or else be synonymous with Broadway.” She added, “We love Joan…but she hasn’t acted on Broadway in 20 years. When you say Joan Rivers, you don’t think comedy, television and Broadway. You think comedy and television.” Lights have, however, been dimmed for performers who are not necessarily known for their stage careers: of recent note, the late Robin Williams. He made his Broadway acting debut in 2011 in Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo and led the stand-up special Robin Williams: Live on Broadway in 2002. Williams was not Tony-nominated for either performance. Broadway theaters will not dim their lights to pay tribute to Tony nominee Joan Rivers. Rivers, a comedy icon and longtime friend to the Broadway community, died on September 4 at the age of 81 following surgery complications. According to The New York Times, the Broadway League has concluded that she did not meet the criteria for the traditional honor from the Great White Way.last_img read more

Masks on as German children start new schoolyear under virus cloud

first_imgWith infection numbers once again creeping up, fears are rising that the new school start could yet prove temporary.But officials warn that children cannot afford to miss more school. “The children need to be present in school because we have to prevent more lost time,” Steffen Kaestner, headteacher of the CJD Jugenddorf-Christophorus school in Rostock, told AFP.Strict rules have been drawn up to limit transmission of the new coronavirus, with cases across Germany rising above 500 per day in recent weeks. Different age groups are being taught separately, so that if a pupil tests positive, only one class will have to go into quarantine and the rest of the school can remain open. Masks must be worn in the corridors, classrooms regularly ventilated and pupils are required to wash their hands regularly and avoid hugging. CJD has 1,350 students aged 9-18. Only two are missing, a decision by their parents, “who belong to a risk group,” said the headteacher, but all the teachers are present.Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania has so far been the German state least hit by the coronavirus, with only 20 deaths out of a total 9,148 in Germany since the beginning of the crisis. Thousands of children in northern Germany became the first in Europe to begin a new school year on Monday, with the rest of the country watching anxiously as full-time classes began after months of curtailed hours over the coronavirus pandemic.Masks will be a daily accessory for some of the 150,000 children returning to school in the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania region, Germany’s first state to reopen the school gates after the summer holidays.Education ministers of Germany’s 16 states had agreed that schools will reopen full-time after the summer break, after offering only partial hours in the weeks when the lockdown was eased.center_img Topics :last_img read more

New RTC judge to handle PECO expropriation case

first_imgGaspar would be the fourth judge tohandle the case following Judge Yvette Go of RTC, Branch 37; Judge Gelveson aspairing judge when Go went on leave; and Amular. RTC, Branch 35’s Judge Daniel AntonioGerardo Amular decided to inhibit from the case. In seeking the expropriation of PECO’sassets, MORE Power cited Section 10 of RA 11212 and Rule 67 Section 2 of theRevised Rules of Court authorizing it to take possession of, exercise controlover, and manage and operate all of the power distribution assets in IloiloCity. MORE Power filed the expropriationcase against PECO in March 2019 a month after President Rodrigo Duterte singedMORE Power’s franchise law (Republic Act 11212) as new power distributor inIloilo City. The city’s new power distributor alsopetitioned the court to determine the reasonable value of PECO’s powerdistribution system assets for just compensation, then order the transfer ofthe ownership of these upon payment of a just compensation. Judge Gelvezon approved the re-raffle. “Notwithstanding that the PresidingJudge performs his duties in accordance with the conscientious dictate of hisconscience and the applicable provisions of law, it has come to a point thatwhatever judgment the Presiding Judge would render in the case would not beaccepted by either the plaintiff or the defendant or maybe tainted with bias,”according to Amular. PECO, on the other hand, questionedthe constitutionality of RA 11212, specifically the sections on expropriation. The expropriation of PECO’s assets inits favor, according to MORE Power, would allow it to “immediately address andcorrect poor services, overcharging, frequent brownouts, expensive rates, oldand unsafe facilities and practices, and other service deficiencies that thiscity’s power users and consumers had long suffered.”center_img “Since the court is the leastunderstood as an institution in the discharge of its function, the lack ofunderstanding of the rules and procedures in connection thereto would affectthe integrity of our courts to uphold the rule of law,” lamented Amular. By MORE Power’s own estimate, however,PECO’s power distribution system is valued at P481,842,450 – way below PECO’sprevious claim that its assets are worth at least P2 billion. In an order dated Jan. 15, Amularstated he opted to have the case re-raffled after consulting Executive JudgeVictor Gelvezon. The case was re-raffled to the sala ofRTC, Branch 33 of Judge Ma. Theresa Gaspar on Monday. PECO’s power distribution franchiseexpired on Jan. 19, 2019./PN MORE Power asked RTC, Branch 37 toissue a writ of possession authorizing it to take immediate control, operation,use, and disposition of PECO’s power distribution system assets. ILOILO City – A new Regional TrialCourt (RTC) branch and a new judge will be handling the expropriation casefiled by MORE Electric and Power Corp.
