Garth Drabinksy poised for comeback with Broadwaybound Sousatzka

Drabinsky’s seven-year sentence was later reduced on appeal, and he was granted full parole in 2014. Drabinsky said the musical is not setting out to present an indictment of any past political movement or government. Login/Register With: “Whatever he did, whatever he didn’t do, whatever happened to him, you know, he’s certainly paid the price for it. And if that gives him the privilege of having a comeback I don’t mind being on board because he’s an exciting person to work with.” Previews begin Feb. 25.Lauren La Rose – The Canadian Press Drabinsky said what he saw as “fundamental” to the production was solving the backstories of the principal characters, as “Sousatzka” flashes back to 1970s Soweto, as well as to Warsaw before the Second World War and during the Nazi occupation. Twittercenter_img Advertisement Based on the Bernice Rubens novel “Madame Sousatzka,” the musical is set in London in 1982 and explores the story of a musical prodigy torn between his mother, a political refugee from South Africa, and his brilliant, eccentric piano teacher. The women must work toward crossing both cultural and racial divides to find common ground, or risk the young musician’s destiny in the process. Almost a decade after his fraud conviction, theatre mogul Garth Drabinksy is poised for a major return to the stage with the world premiere of “Sousatzka” in Toronto ahead of its Broadway debut. Advertisement “He’s the best producer I ever worked with. He’s still the best producer I ever worked with,” said “Sousatzka” lyricist Richard Maltby Jr. Thursday during a press day for the musical. Facebook Now, the producer behind “Kiss of the Spider Woman,” “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” and “Show Boat” is hoping to find fresh success with “Sousatzka.” “In so doing, I was able to place the musical in the context of the political upheaval of certain periods of the 20th century … and hopefully give it a political and social relevance,” Drabinksy said in brief remarks.“This was done, as I have said, five years ago. However, as intervening world events have unfolded, I believe the story has now become a profound fable for our times as it confronts the profound issues of race, of exile and of refugees.”last_img read more

Royal Air Maroc Loses Bags of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghans

Rabat – Pictures of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle’s visit to Morocco are flooding social media, but not everything has gone according to plan. The duke and duchess of Sussex came along with a team of official photographers, and all three of them have taken to Twitter to denounce Royal Air Maroc (RAM) for losing their baggage.According to a tweet from Mark Cuthbert, one of the royal photographers, seven members of the media had no baggage upon arrival, and five of them have “gone the whole trip without them.” He complained that RAM refused to even give them a lost baggage reference number and accused RAM of having “woeful service.” Tim Rooke, another royal photographer, tweeted that after three days he still has not received his luggage. He claimed that RAM “won’t even file a missing bag report.”Still no bags after 3 days of #RoyalVisitMorocco booked through @British_Airways for @Iberia_en flight rebooked on @RAM_Maroc apparently leagal responsibility of final carrier yet @RAM_Maroc won’t even file a missing bag report #catch22— Rookie (@royalfocus1) February 25, 2019The third photographer, Arthur Edwards, then tweeted that “after many visits to Rabat lost luggage I was told that the bag is still at Heathrow.

UN survey finds opium production on the rise in Afghanistan

The survey found the area under opium poppy cultivation has jumped by 8 per cent over the last year, to 80,000 hectares from 74,000 hectares. Now there is opium cultivation in 28 of Afghanistan’s 32 provinces, up from 18 in 1999.Production has also increased, rising by 6 per cent to 3,600 tons from 3,400 tons, and about 1.7 million people – or 7 per cent of Afghanistan’s population – are involved in the industry.The annual survey, which took in fieldwork and analysis of satellite images, was conducted by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). The Office said the results confirm that Afghanistan is responsible for about three-quarters of the world’s output of opium.Speaking at a press briefing in Moscow on the launch of the report, UNODC Executive Director Antonio Maria Costa issued a dire warning about the situation.”The country is clearly at a crossroads: either major surgical drug-control measures are taken now, or the drug cancer in Afghanistan will keep spreading, metastasise into corruption, violence and terrorism,” he said.Mr. Costa praised anti-drug efforts by the administration of Afghan President Hamid Karzai, including a ban on opium cultivation and trafficking, and the setting up of a counter-narcotic directorate.But he warned that drug cartels threaten to undermine President Karzai’s efforts to promote democracy and the rule of law.UNODC says it estimates that total income from the farming and trafficking of opium this year may equal about half of Afghanistan’s gross domestic product.The value of the opium harvest declined this year to $1.02 billion, down from $1.2 billion, but that was due to a sharp drop in the price of fresh opium to $283 per kilogram this year, down from $350 per kilogram, because of the increased amount of opium flooding the market.UNODC says opium production has been a serious problem in Afghanistan since the late 1990s, when the Taliban controlled Afghanistan. read more

UN experts denounce ongoing detention and trial of human rights defenders in

“We condemn the repeated arrests, detention and trial of Mr. Maseko and Mr. Makhubu and are concerned that these may be directly related to their legitimate exercise of the right to freedom of expression,” the experts said in a news release, noting that the country’s Constitution recognises the rights to freedom of expression and the right to a fair trial.The men were arrested on 17 and 18 March 2014, respectively, on charges of criminal contempt of the court for publishing articles in The Nation magazine which questioned the circumstances and rationale of a case pending before the High Court of Swaziland. They were detained after a summary proceeding in the Chief Justice’s chambers and were remanded in prison for seven days without appearing before an open court, contrary to the provisions of Swaziland’s Criminal Procedure and Evidence Act.Mr. Maseko and Mr. Makhubu were released on 6 April, following a High Court judgment setting aside the initial warrant for their arrest as unconstitutional, unlawful and irregular. They were shortly re-arrested after the Chief Justice lodged an appeal to overturn that judgment. The two men have remained in detention in the capital, Mbabane, for the past two months. The Special Rapporteur on the right to freedom of opinion and expression, Frank La Rue, noted that the detention and trial of the two men for their exercise of the right to express their opinion on a court case “runs contrary to Swaziland’s international human rights obligations.”“Criminal sanctions, in particular imprisonment, for alleged libel or defamation are not proportional to the effective exercise of the right to freedom of opinion and expression,” he said.“At a time when the space for human rights defenders is visibly shrinking, we need to be very vigilant with respect to any case where imprisonment may be directly related to individuals’ work in defence of human rights,” added the new Special Rapporteur on human rights defenders, Michel Forst.“The right to defend human rights includes the right freely to publish, impart or disseminate views and information on all human rights and fundamental freedoms both in law and in practice,” Mr. Forst said.Mads Andenas, who currently heads the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detention, appealed to the Government to “take all necessary measures to guarantee their right not to be deprived arbitrarily of their liberty and their right to fair proceedings before an independent and impartial tribunal.”The Special Rapporteur on the independence of judges and lawyers, Gabriela Knaul, voiced concern about allegations of lack of due process in the trials of the two men. She added that Mr. Maseko, as a lawyer, “has the right to take part in public discussions of matters concerning the law and the administration of justice.” Independent experts or special rapporteurs are appointed by the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work. read more

Eurozone set to clear new deal

first_imgParliament is due to vote Monday on an extra round of pension cuts ahead of a meeting of eurozone finance minister in Brussels, where Greece’s partners are expected to approve a new bailout of at least 130 billion euros. Prime Minister Lucas Papademos flew to Brussels on Sunday to prepare for the Eurogroup meeting, which could “result in the need to take very important decisions for the country and require immediate and thorough consultation between the prime minister and minister of finance,” the premier’s office said in a statement. Papademos is also due to speak with representatives of the Institute of International Finance (IIF) about a debt restructuring scheme that could save Greece some 100 billion euros. Officials from eurozone finance ministries and the European Central Bank held a conference call Sunday to discuss the details of the Greek program. There is concern that Greece might not be able to stick to the pace of spending cuts and structural reforms that the European Union and the International Monetary Fund have asked for. This has prompted fears that Greece’s debt will not be sustainable in the years to come. An IMF analysis suggested that Greek debt would reach 129 percent of gross domestic product in 2020, which is higher than previously expected. Nevertheless, Austrian Finance Minister Maria Fekter indicated that the funding for Greece would be released. “At the moment, it appears it will go exactly this way,” she said in a TV interview. “I don’t think there is a majority to go a different way because it would be enormously arduous and cost lots and lots of money.” A eurozone official told Reuters that it did not appear any of the member states wanted to be “responsible for pulling the plug on the deal at this late stage.” On Saturday, Cabinet agreed on how the government would save another 325 million euros to comply with the spending cuts requested by Greece’s lenders. The measures included further cuts to basic, as well as supplementary, pensions. Some 70 million euros will come from cuts to pensions above 1,300 euros per month. Supplementary pensions will also be cut between 10 and 20 percent but only as long as the monthly payment is above 200 euros, which was the threshold set by New Democracy. Parliament is expected to vote on the measures today after the relevant bill was tabled on Saturday. Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Des patients de plus en plus attentifs aux coûts de la santé

first_imgDes patients de plus en plus “attentifs aux coûts de la santé”Un patient sur deux repousse certains soins médicaux pour des raisons économiques révèle une étude commandée par la société financière CMV Médiforce. Selon les professionnels libéraux de santé, un quart des patients discuterait même le prix des soins et chercherait à marchander.Selon une étude commandée par la société financière CMV Médiforce, les pharmaciens (75%), les vétérinaires (75%) et les chirurgiens-dentistes (63%) constatent que le report des soins ou des achats de produits de santé est de plus en plus fréquent. Ainsi, 24% des patients “n’ont jamais été aussi attentifs aux coûts de la santé” et “se placent même en situation de négociateurs”, indique l’étude.Ces discussions du prix des soins sont les plus fréquentes chez les kinés avec 30% des patients, chez les spécialistes et les dentistes avec respectivement 28 et 27% de tentatives de  marchandage. Seuls 23% des 450 professionnels de santé interrogés estiment que “les patients acceptent comme avant les traitements et les soins proposés”.L’étude montre aussi que les professionnels libéraux de santé sont inquiets pour leurs revenus, compte tenu de la crise et des difficultés financières des patients, rapporte TV5monde. Sur un échantillon de 350.000 libéraux, ceux-ci ont accordé une note de 5,8 sur 10 concernant la situation actuelle de leur profession, et une note de 5,1/10 quand ils envisagent leur avenir.La menace de l’achat de médicaments sur internet À lire aussiLa ministre de la Santé réagit au problème des blouses impudiquesInfirmiers et chirurgiens-dentistes mettent en avant l’augmentation des charges qui pèsent sur leur activité tandis que les kinésithérapeutes sont 46% à vivre une dévalorisation de leur profession tout en se plaignent d’une surcharge de travail.

Un télescope géant en construction à lObservatoire de HauteProvence

first_imgUn télescope géant en construction à l’Observatoire de Haute-Provence Une équipe d’astronomes de l’Observatoire de Haute-Provence travaille à la construction d’un télescope géant, le plus grand au monde, afin d’observer au plus près les exoplanètes et la surface des étoiles. Lancé en 2002, ce projet baptisé Carlina est au coeur d’une importante étape : la réalisation du prototype de cet immense télescope.Afin d’observer avec une précision jamais égalée la surface des étoiles mais aussi les exoplanètes, une équipe de l’Observatoire de Haute-Provence s’est attelée en 2002 à la mise au point d’un immense télescope amené à devenir le plus grand du monde. Comme l’explique l’Observatoire dans un communiqué, des astronomes sont en train d’élaborer un prototype constitué de 25 “petits miroirs espacés les uns des autres pour former un télescope dilué géant”.À lire aussiBoisson, météorite et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 5 septembreCes miroirs, bien plus légers que ceux utilisés pour les télescopes classiques, ont été réglés au micron sous une optique accrochée à un ballon à Hélium à 100 mètres au-dessus du sol. Un exploit qui prouve “la faisabilité de construire un télescope dilué de 100–500 mètres de diamètre avec l’optique focale (ou se forme l’image des étoiles)suspendue sous des câbles tendus par un ballon ou entre deux montagnes” explique Hervé Le Coroller, le responsable du projet Carlina.Aujourd’hui, les plus grands télescopes au monde, comme le VLT du Chili ou le Keck installé à Hawaï (Keck), sont dotés de miroirs de dix mètres de diamètre environ, et permettent de voir les étoiles comme des points, souligne-t-il. Avec un diamètre de 100 mètres, les astronomes pourront observer des exoplanètes comme la surface des étoiles situées à plusieurs années lumières de notre soleil. “L’utilisation d’un tel télescope pourrait permettre de percer les nombreux mystères encore bien cachés de l’Univers” affirme Hervé Le Coroller.Le 23 mars 2012 à 10:22 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

US Olympics Committee will sue companies for mentioning the games without a

first_imgThe Rio Olympics are about to start, and that means marketing dollars for sponsors and the Olympic Committee itself. However, if some company was thinking about using the Olympics for its own gain without paying up, it should think again, The US Olympic Committee (USOC) is sending out scary warning letters to make sure companies don’t talk about the games unless they’ve paid for a sponsorship deal. Yes, really.The targets of the letters are companies that sponsor athletes, but have not entered into a deal to become an official sponsor of the Olympic games. According to the letter, these companies “may not post about the Trials or Games on their corporate social media accounts.” The restriction even extends to the use of terms trademarked by the USOC or International Olympic Committee. That’s an extensive list too. The USOC and IOC have trademarks on terms like “Olympic,” “Olympian,” and “go for the gold.” The USOC has also trademarked hashtags like #Rio2016 and #TeamUSA.We wonder how famous Olympians Mario and Sonic feel about this.If that already sounds pretty Draconian, it gets worse. The letter sent to these companies states that no commercial entity which does not have a “primary mission” in journalism can reference any Olympic results or share something posted by the official Olympic social media accounts. So, is the USOC going to sue if a company retweets a result? Maybe. At least that’s the implication.For its part, the USOC says it needs to maintain sponsorship deals to support sending athletes to the games. Although, athletic sponsors like Oiselle dispute that. It says sending an athlete to the Olympics costs about $300,000 and the USOC covers only a tiny fraction of that. By hassling athletic sponsors, it’s only making it harder for athletes to find sponsorship in the future. With raw sewage, Zika virus, and now ample legal threats, the Rio Olympics are shaping up to be quite a spectacle.last_img read more

Is Microsoft deprecating the People feature in Windows 10

first_imgIs Microsoft deprecating the People feature in Windows 10? by Martin Brinkmann on December 17, 2018 in Windows – 17 commentsMicrosoft introduced a feature that it called My People back in 2017 in Insider Builds of the then-upcoming Fall Creators Update feature update for Windows 10.Windows 10 users could pin contacts to the Windows 10 taskbar for quick access to these contacts; communication apps that support My People could be assigned to contacts to communication quickly, and it was even possible to view chats from different apps quickly.Windows users could hide the People icon on the Windows taskbar if they had no use for the feature. My People was supported by the default Windows apps Skype and Mail initially only.A handful of third-party applications for Windows 10 added support for the People feature but support was limited.Twitter user Albacore, who publishes insightful information regularly, suggests that the People Bar will be deprecated in the upcoming feature update for Windows 10.In upcoming 19H1 Insider builds, the People Bar will show a deprecation notice. It’s a shame to see something like this with rather interesting engineering behind it kick the bucket.Microsoft has not confirmed or denied the claim at this point. Deprecation would mean that People remains available in Windows 10 version 1903 but that Microsoft engineers won’t work on it anymore to add new features or make changes to its functionality.Deprecated features will be removed from the operating system eventually; Microsoft deprecated the Snipping Tool in Windows 10 version 1809 for instance. Sometimes, deprecated tools are replaced with new apps or functions.The People feature’s usefulness was limited by application support in two meaningful ways: first, by the lack of availability of popular chat applications as UWP applications for Windows 10, and second, by the lack of support by apps available for Windows 10.Microsoft is expected to release a support document for the upcoming feature update for Windows 10 that lists removed and deprecated features in that particular version.Closing WordsI have to admit that I never used the People feature as it did not offer anything that would improve my workflows. I can see some users liking it a lot though if they use apps that support it regularly.People will remain in Windows 10 version 1903 at the very least so that Windows users who make use of it can continue using it in that version.Now You: did you use the People feature?SummaryArticle NameIs Microsoft deprecating the People feature in Windows 10?DescriptionMicrosoft may deprecate the People feature of the Windows 10 operating system in the upcoming feature update in 2019.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
