With Sting hard at work on his Broadway-aimed musical The Last Ship, his wife Trudie Styler is joining the New York theater scene, too! The actress will take the New York stage in Thomas Kilroy’s adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull at the Culture Project. Directed by Max Stafford Clark, the production will begin performances October 3, with an official opening night set for October 13 at off-Broadway’s Lynn Redgrave Theatre. Kilroy’s take on the beloved Chekhov play is set in 19th century Ireland, drawing parallels to the Russian landscape that inspired the original work. The Seagull tells the story of Irina (Styler), a distinguished actress, and her passionate but lonely son. The Seagull will feature scenic design by Peter Hartwell, costume design by Ilona Somogyi and lighting design by William Hansen. Styler’s film and TV credits include Love Soup, Cheeky, Paris Connections, Bug, Me Without You, Fair Game, The American Bride, Alpha Male and The Next Three Days. She studied drama at the Bristol Old Vic and performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company. In addition to Styler, who will play self-involved actress and mother Irina Arkadina, the cast includes Rufus Collins, Alan Cox, Stella Feehily, Slate Holmgren, Rachel Spencer Hewitt, Ryan David O’Byrne, Amanda Quaid, Tim Ruddy and Kenneth Ryan.

ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by. Henry MeierWell, it’s all but official that no major tax reform, let alone tax reform putting the credit union tax exemption at risk, will take place this year. Not only is the credit union tax exemption not to be included in draft legislation but no lesser an authority than Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell took tax reform off the table for this year. While this is, of course, good news, given the amount of time and energy that the industry has devoted to the issue over the last several months, the bankers have still scored a partial victory. We’re in a mid-term election year and we have yet to get serious traction on what I consider the single most important issue facing the industry: the need for secondary capital.Why is secondary capital so important? Let me count the ways. First, it simply makes no sense for credit unions to be penalized while growing in popularity. This is precisely what happens every time a member opens an account in this low interest, moderate growth economy where it is extremely difficult to make money off other people’s money. If credit unions are going to grow then they need the ability every other financial institution has to seek out investors.Second, any doubt as to the crucial need for secondary capital has been dispelled by the NCUA’s Risk Based Net Worth regulatory reform proposal. In its simplest form, there are two ways a credit union can improve its risk weighting. It can either reduce its assets or increase its capital. But unlike the nation’s largest banks, our largest credit unions don’t have the opportunity to seek out additional capital. In short, if NCUA’s proposal goes forward it will put the brakes on the growth of credit unions whose only sin is to be large.I understand how divisive the secondary capital debate is within the industry. Credit unions are, at their core, mutual institutions. They have to remain that way if they are going to continue providing members a unique financial experience. But secondary capital reform can be introduced in ways that maintain the essence of the credit union movement, which is one person one vote. If an institution is willing to invest in a credit union it would only do so against the backdrop of restrictions that give it no more or less influence than any other member of a given credit union. continue reading »
Gophers host second day of Twilight Meet Between the men’s and women’s teams, the maroon and gold took nineteen titles.Tony SaundersJunior John Uchytil vaults on Wednesday, May 1 at the men’s track Twilight Meet at the Minneapolis Track and Field Stadium. Babatunde JinaduMay 2, 2019Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintLast week, the women’s track and field team kicked off competition at its brand new stadium, sprinting out of the gates in a commanding fashion to win 10 titles at the Twilight Meet. On Wednesday, the men’s team held its own meet and brought in nine titles.“Last week, we had the women’s meet and it was really nice weather, so [there] was a lot of energy with that,” men’s team sprint coach Ibrahim Kabia said. “The guys are out here, very excited to come out and be able to compete at the first home track meet since we got the new stadium. There’s a lot of excitement around here, and they’re looking forward to being able to compete here a lot more. It’s been a pretty awesome day.”The men’s team took home nine titles Wednesday in several events. Nick Rink, Hunter Lucas and Mike Herauf set personal records in their events on the track. Rink won the 3,000-meter steeplechase with a time of 8:55.69. Lucas then won the 1,500-meter event with a time of 3:51.48. Herauf competed in the pole vault and scored his jump at 5.05 meters.Kaleb Siekmeier won the discus throw with a distance of 52.68 meters, and Kieran McKeag got the title in the hammer throw with a distance of 65.79 meters.“We’re not competing [with] a lot of our athletes that will be going to the Big Ten meet, so this is more of kind of a tune up for the people who are kind of on the bubble,” Kabia said. “It’s typical Minnesota weather, so it’s not great, but the Big Ten meet might be like this in a couple of weeks so we’ve got to be ready to go.” On April 24, the women’s team faced competition from St. Thomas, Concordia-St. Paul, Hamline, Macalester and other lower-level running groups, and the Gophers came away with a sweep of the throwing events.Nayoka Clunis won in shot put by setting a new career best of 17.18 meters while competing unattached. Captain Kiley Sabin claimed the discus trophy while Candesha Scott took the javelin throw in her first outing of the outdoor season. Senior Temi Ogunrinde won the women’s hammer throw.The Gophers also got wins in the high jump and pole vault from Ashley Ramacher and Karlie Place, respectively.In the oval, unattached Minnesota sprinter Lauren Hansen made a nice first impression by sweeping the 200- and 400-meter dashes. Ally Smith took first in the 1,500-meter race in a time of 4:42.54, and the 4×400-meter relay capped off the competition convincingly with another win on the night.“It’s fun to be home – that’s the biggest thing. I competed here and we had one home meet in my five years of college,” assistant coach Peter Miller. “It was a good day, we had a couple of personal records; no school records but some really solid performances.”
Gardner Capital Development moves forward on plans to develop the El Caro Senior Residences in Phoenix after being awarded a reservation of Low Income Housing Tax Credits from the Arizona Department of Housing.The $18 million affordable senior housing project consists of 102 energy-efficient one- and two-bedroom apartments on 5-acres of land located at 19th and Northern Avenues, one-half mile from the Metro Light Rail Station. Once completed, the El Caro Senior Residences will include amenities such as a two-story club house and community center in the middle of the complex, conference and multipurpose rooms for larger gatherings as well as an open courtyard and barbecue areas.“We consider it our mission to build sustainable high-quality housing for seniors and, in the process, create and solidify long-term partnerships within the community,” said Michael Gardner, principal at Gardner Capital.Construction begins in the first quarter of 2017 with completion expected 15 months later. All units will be leased to seniors earning an average of $18,000 to $34,000 in household income, and 25 percent of units are reserved for those with developmental disabilities.The United Cerebral Palsy Association of Central Arizona will use the onsite clubhouse and community center to provide supportive services for residents. Gardner said, “We are thrilled to be partnering with the UCP, an organization that will help provide our residents with the utmost care and services.”
Over the past 4 days Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health (MOH) has reported three new MERS cases, one in a man who had contact with camels, and the World Health Organization (WHO) today filled in more details about 22 cases announced since the end of November.No healthcare-related cases are noted in the latest reports, which mainly feature camel-related cases and sporadic infections from undetermined exposures in several of Saudi Arabia’s regions.Slow but steady stream of cases continuesOne of Saudi Arabia’s new Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) cases involves a 60-year-old Saudi man from Mahd Aldhahaba in the west-central part of the country, according to a Dec 16 MOH statement. An investigation revealed the man had direct contact with camels before he became ill. He is hospitalized in stable condition.Today the MOH announced two more infections. Patients are a 58-year-old man from Riyadh and a 22-year-old woman from Taif, in the country’s southwest. Both are Saudi citizens who are in stable condition and had primary exposure to the virus, meaning they probably didn’t contract the disease from another patient. Neither individual is a healthcare worker.Over the past 4 days the MOH also has reported four deaths in previously announced cases.The new developments lift Saudi Arabia’s MERS-CoV total to 1,511 cases, 629 of them fatal. Twelve people are still being treated for their illnesses.Recent Saudi cases span several regionsIn two separate reports today, the WHO fleshed out more epidemiologic details on 22 cases reported by Saudi Arabia from Nov 27 through Dec 13. Seven of the patients had contact with camels or drank raw camel milk, one was a household contact of an earlier case, and exposures are still unknown for 14.Two deaths were noted in the 22 cases detailed today, and the WHO also noted five deaths in previously reported patients.All of the case-patients are adults, ranging in age from 24 to 90, and all but three are men. All but seven of the people have underlying health conditions. The patients hail from cities in eight different regions, though about half of them are from two regions: Medina and Riyadh.In cases involving camel or raw camel milk exposure, Saudi health officials notified the country’s agriculture ministry for follow-up investigation of possible infections in camels, the WHO reported.The patient who had household exposure is a 47-year-old woman from the city of Riyadh who is the mother of a recently reported patient, a 29-year-old woman. The mother’s infection was identified through contact tracing.Illness onsets ranged from Nov 14 to Dec 9. Twelve patients are in stable condition, eight are listed as critical, and two died.The WHO said that since September 2012 it has been notified of 1,864 MERS-CoV cases, at least 659 of them fatal. It added that the new case reports don’t change its overall risk assessment for MERS-CoV. Infections in the Middle East are likely to continue as people contract the virus from animals or animal products or from other sick people, mainly in healthcare settings.See also:Dec 16 Saudi MOH reportDec 17 Saudi MOH reportDec 18 Saudi MOH reportDec 19 Saudi MOH reportDec 19 WHO statement on 12 recent Saudi casesDec1 9 WHO report on 10 recent Saudi cases
Dong Energy has acquired a 100% ownership interest in the German offshore wind development project Borkum Riffgrund West 2 from Energiekontor AG. The project is located adjacent to Dong Energy’s Borkum Riffgrund West 1 development project . The two projects have a total combined capacity of up to 550 MW.Borkum Riffgrund West 2 has already submitted an application for consent and could be built after 2020 if grid connection is granted and Dong Energy makes a final investment decision in the project. Application for grid connection is expected to be submitted in 2017/2018.Samuel Leupold, Executive Vice President, Dong Energy Wind Power said: “With the Borkum Riffgrund West 2 project we are now strengthening our post 2020 pipeline. Having our other offshore wind project, Borkum Riffgrund West 1 right next to it, there are a number of synergies for the development, construction and operation of this project.”Dong Energy is currently constructing three offshore wind farms in the German North Sea with a combined total capacity of approximately 900 MW. Those projects are Borkum Riffgrund 1 with 312 MW capacity and Gode Wind 1+2 with a total of 582 MW capacity.“We have great trust in the German offshore wind market and the further regulatory framework, which the purchase of this development project is a proof of,” Samuel Leupold said.The German government has the target to install 15 Gigawatt offshore wind by 2030 to support the transition to a renewable electricity supply.To date, Dong Energy has constructed approximately one third of all offshore wind farms in Europe. A total of 2,500 MW has been built, and the company plans to build a total of 6,500 MW by 2020.Press release; Image: dongenergy
