Stars Perform For SoldOut Audience At BROADWAY BELTS FOR PFF

first_imgThe Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation (PFF) announced that the 7th annual BROADWAY BELTS FOR PFF! raised a record-breaking $250,000 (a 35% increase over the previous year’s revenue).Broadway stars belted their favorite hits during 7th annual Broadway Belts for PFF! fundraiser The event, an exclusive fundraiser at New York City’s Edison Ballroom, was hosted by Broadway star and comedienne Julie Halston and featured Grammy and Tony Award winners on Monday, February 27.BROADWAY BELTS FOR PFF! was co-founded by Halston, an award-winning actress whose notable roles include THE BABYLON LINE, GYPSY, YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU and MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS. As a leading advocate for the PFF, Halston and her husband Ralph Howard co-created the event after their friend, Associated Press theater critic Michael Kuchwara, passed away from pulmonary fibrosis (PF). Coincidentally, Howard was subsequently diagnosed with PF and successfully underwent lung transplantation.“To say the show was a smash is an understatement. Our performers were so incredibly gracious and everyone brought the house down,” said Halston. “Ralph and I are grateful for the opportunity to promote awareness of the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation’s important work in helping patients and funding research for a cure.”Broadway stars belted their favorite hits under the direction of Carl Andress (THE DIVINE SISTER) with Christopher McGovern (CAGNEY) as Musical Director, Greg Santos as Stage Manager and produced by D. Michael Dvorchak, Sue Frost (COME FROM AWAY) and Ed Windels. This year’s performers included Grammy-winner Stephanie Mills (THE WIZ), Orfeh (Tony-nominee for LEGALLY BLONDE), Lucas Steele (NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812), NBC’s Gus Rosendale (“WEEKEND TODAY IN NEW YORK”), Stephanie J. Block (FALSETTOS, and Tony-nominee for THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD), Mandy Gonzalez (HAMILTON, IN THE HEIGHTS), Mario Cantone (“THE VIEW”), Robert Creighton (CAGNEY), and Tony-winner Randy Graff (CITY OF ANGELS, THE BABYLON LINE).The proceeds from the show are donated to the PFF’s work aimed at finding a cure for pulmonary fibrosis, a devastating and relentless group of progressive diseases that result in scarring of the lungs. Presently, there is no cure for PF.“Enhanced awareness and expanded research are vital to support those affected by pulmonary fibrosis and to continue to identify effective therapies,” said Gregory P. Cosgrove, MD, FCCP, Chief Medical Officer at the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation. “We thank everyone involved in supporting our efforts and helping to make Broadway Belts For PFF! the success it has become.”last_img read more

Tottenham vs Ajax Champions League semifinal Leg 1

first_imgAfter knocking out both Real Madrid and Juventus, Ajax yet again started on an impressive note in the first leg of the Champions League against Spurs. An excellent build-up play from the visitors resulted in the first goal of the night. A lovely ball from Ziyech inside the penalty area handed Ajax the early lead with Van de Beek slotting the ball into the bottom corner. Very soon, an exquisite series of passes handed de Beek the second opportunity, but, a good stop from Lorris ensured that Ajax didn’t score the second away goal.

The England captain suffered significant damage to his left ankle during their Champions League victory against Manchester City. On the other hand, the South Korean star had to sit out due to suspension. Into the second half, Dele Alli did have a couple of changes, but poor finishes on both instances denied the equalizer to the hosts. Neres went close to double the lead, but the woodwork denied Ajax the second goal. Tottenham did come strong in the second half, but the inability to convert the half-chances had cost them the first-leg. The young Dutch side will now host Tottenham at the Johan Cruijff ArenA on 9th of May for the second leg with a vital away goal advantage.last_img read more

Australian economy contracts 05 per cent in September

by Rod McGuirk, The Associated Press Posted Dec 6, 2016 6:40 pm MDT Last Updated Dec 6, 2016 at 7:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Australian economy contracts 0.5 per cent in September CANBERRA, Australia – Australia’s economy contracted in the September quarter for the first time since early 2011, the government said Wednesday, as the economy adjusts to weaker Chinese demand for its biggest exports, iron ore and coal.The economy contracted by 0.5 per cent over the three months. Annual growth was 1.8 per cent, the Australian Bureau of Statistics said.Growth in the year through June had been 3.1 per cent.A decline in new business investment was the dominant cause for the contraction in September, Treasurer Scott Morrison said.He would not speculate on whether the December quarter would also contract, technically creating Australia’s first recession in 25 years.“I think the consensus forecasts and the other commentary demonstrates going forward there are a lot of things to be positive about. I am not one to speculate on those matters. We will wait and see the data,” Morrison told reporters.He called on a hostile Senate to respond by passing the government’s economic agenda.“The contraction in real GDP recorded in the September quarter is not just a reminder, not just a wake-up call or a warning about being complacent when it comes to economic growth,” Morrison said.“It is a demand to support economic policies that drive the investment needed to support job security, the hours and wages that hard-working Australians need to deal with rising costs of living, especially on electricity costs and that businesses need to survive in a tough and competitive environment,” he said.The economy last shrunk in March 2011 after record flooding effected farm and coal exports, and before then in September 2008 after the global financial crisis.Opposition treasury spokesman Chris Bowen said that September was one of only four negative quarters that Australia had recorded in the past 25 years, and the only one that did not have an obvious explanation.He said that recent quarters had been kept in positive territory only by spikes in government investment or net exports.“That can’t go on forever, and today was the day it stopped,” Bowen said.Record commodity prices driven by Chinese demand helped Australia avoid recession after the global economic downturn. The demand caused a surge in investment in Australia mine construction which is continuing to decline.Mining contributed no growth in the latest quarter, while agriculture increased 7.5 per cent over the three months. read more

Ohio States Urban Meyer Tom Herman experienced coaching backup quarterbacks

OSU coach Urban Meyer stands during a game against Iowa Oct. 19 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 34-24.Lantern file photoWith senior quarterback Braxton Miller’s health status in doubt after he re-injured his shoulder on Monday, Ohio State football fans won’t have to look far to see how the current coaching regime does when a signal-caller goes down.Coach Urban Meyer and co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman were both around just last season when Miller missed two full games, and the majority of another, after injuring his knee.Miller was first injured on OSU’s opening drive against San Diego State Sept. 7, 2013. Then-backup quarterback Kenny Guiton, who has since graduated, entered the game and passed for 152 yards and two touchdowns in a 42-7 victory.Guiton’s success continued in historic form as he set OSU records for the longest pass play and the most passing touchdowns in a game over the following two weeks.In all, Guiton played in 13 of 14 games in 2013, including the two aforementioned starts. He passed for a total of 749 yards and 14 touchdowns while only throwing two interceptions. The Buckeyes were 2-0 when Guiton started, on top of the win against SDSU.While Guiton slotted smoothly into Meyer and Herman’s system, both coaches have had experience with replacing quarterbacks even before coming to OSU.Meyer’s previous coaching stop was at Florida, where his No. 1 quarterback played in every game all six seasons while he was in charge. Before that, Meyer spent two years at Utah.In 2003, Meyer’s first year with the Utes, Brett Elliott, then a senior, started the season on top of the depth chart at quarterback. Elliott broke his wrist two games into the season, paving the way for then-sophomore Alex Smith.Smith went on to lead Utah to a 9-1 record in 10 starts that season while throwing 15 touchdowns and just three interceptions. He then led the Utes to an undefeated record his senior year before being named a Heisman Trophy finalist. Smith eventually became the No. 1 overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft by the San Francisco 49ers.Between Smith and Guiton, the last two quarterbacks to come in for an injured starter under Meyer, their teams have totaled an 11-1 record in games they started in those seasons.Since 2007, Herman has been an offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Rice, Iowa State and OSU.At Rice, where Herman coached in 2007 and 2008, his No. 1 quarterback, Chase Clement, played in all 25 games. But while at Iowa State, Herman had at least two quarterbacks start at least one game in each of his three seasons.In 2009 Austen Arnaud played in 12 games and threw for 2,015 yards, 14 touchdowns and 13 interceptions for the Cyclones under Herman. Backup Jerome Tiller played in seven games, including a start, and tossed one touch down compared to four interceptions. The two quarterbacks led Iowa State to a 7-6 overall record.The following year, Arnaud started nine games and threw 13 touchdowns with 10 interceptions. Tiller started another game, and threw one touchdown in eight total appearances. The Cyclones finished the season 5-7.In Herman’s final season before leaving Iowa State for OSU, 2011, Steele Jantz started seven games at quarterback while Jared Barnett stated six under center. Both threw for more than 1,000 yards, but combined for 17 interceptions compared to 16 touchdowns. Iowa State went 6-7 after starting that season 3-0.While Herman and Meyer both helped the Buckeyes to success when Miller was out injured last season, it is yet to be seen if they can find that same success in 2014.The extent of Miller’s injury was not yet known as of Tuesday morning, pending the results of an MRI on Miller’s shoulder.With out without the senior in the lineup, OSU is scheduled to begin its season Aug. 30 against Navy at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. Kickoff is set for noon. read more

Stephen Lawrence killer gets legal aid for compensation claim

first_img Show more The judge who oversaw the case, Mr Justice Francis, suggested people in their position should always have access to lawyers: “It does seem to me that Parliament … cannot have intended that parents in the position that these parents have been in should have no access to legal advice or representation.”He continued: “I can think of few more profound cases than ones where a [hospital] trust is applying to the court for a declaration that a life-support machine should be switched off in respect of a child.” The cost of the case could run to up to £70,000. In February he was granted permission to proceed with his claim for damages against the Ministry of Justice.His application for legal aid has now been approved and was revealed at Central London county court yesterday, the Mirror reported.  Charlie Gard with parents  Norris was jailed alongside Gary Dobson for Mr Lawrence’s murder in 2012. Between them they were given more than £425,000 in legal aid for their defence. The murderer grew up in a mock Tudor mansion in a wealthy part of south east London, but later joined a gang and picked up criminal convictions for violence and racism. The decision to fund Norris’s claim is likely to prompt particular criticism in the wake of reforms which aimed to cut the budget for legal aid by £450m.Liberal Democrat Home Affais spokesman Ed Davey said: “This shows the legal aid system is broken and urgently needs to be fixed.”The parents of Charlie Gard were not entitled to legal aid and had to rely on lawyers working pro bono for them in their dispute over treatment for the terminally ill child.  Flowers at a memorial for Stephen Lawrence after his killers were convicted in 2012 He added: “I cannot imagine that anyone ever intended parents to be in this position.”It has also been suggested that legal aid cuts may have prevented Grenfell Tower residents pursuing their concerns over safety before the deadly fire. The president of the Law Society, Robert Bourns, said that if lack of legal aid had stopped the tenants challenging safety standards, “we may have a very stark example of what limiting legal aid can mean”.

One of the killers of Stephen Lawrence has been granted legal aid in a battle to get compensation from the Government after he was allegedly beaten up in prison.David Norris is suing the Ministry of Justice for £10,000 in damages, saying inadequate steps were taken to protect him. The MoJ denies any breach of duty. Norris, 40, was convicted five years ago of the racist murder of Mr Lawrence in Eltham, south-east London. Mr Lawrence was only 18 when he was stabbed to death in an unprovoked attack at a bus stop in 1993. Norris has since tried to have his conviction overturned but this was dismissed by the Court of Appeal. He was allegedly beaten up by three inmates at Belmarsh Prison, south-east London, leaving him with a broken nose, cuts to his face requiring 18 stitches, black eyes, broken ribs and anxiety. The MoJ disputes the claim. The prisoners were not charged over the incident.

Elliniko selloff deal getting closer

first_imgGreece hopes to launch a tender within the next couple of weeks for investors to take on the redevelopment of the old Athens airport in Elliniko, State Minister Haris Paboukis told a parliamentary committee on Thursday. The massive site is a prime piece of real state as it is located next to the sea, has good transport connections and facilities that were built for the 2004 Athens Olympics. The previous government had planned to turn it into Europe’s largest metropolitan park but this scheme never materialised. The current administration has sought to lease the land to private investors in a bid to raise money that would help reduce Greece’s massive public debt. The government appeared to be close to a deal with Qatar earlier this year and Paboukis had flown to meet with potential investors in February, pledging to steer the deal, estimated to be worth up to seven billion euros, through a new fast-track privatisation process. However, the bid to sell the 170 acres of land, which used to house the city’s international airport until 2001, has since stalled. Paboukis said the Qataris may still be the ones who take on the project after the tender is launched. “We have not decided what the next step will be,” Paboukis told Parliament’s environment committee. “It will be a different picture if we have one interested party or many. We want to see if there are more interested investors than just the Qataris.” Environmentalists and local politicians have expressed concern about a large amount of construction taking place in Elliniko and have pressured the government to retain as much greenery as possible. The head of the state company managing the Elliniko site, Spiro Pollalis, told the parliamentary committee that this is not the correct approach to the issue. “When you start talking about a park or about how many square metres of greenery there are per Athenian, you get on the wrong track,” he said. “We have to view Elliniko as a development project that will include a park.” Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Fronditha Care volunteers honoured for their selfless service

first_imgMarking National Volunteer Week, more than 150 Fronditha Care volunteers were honoured for making a difference to the lives of the elderly in Australia.Fronditha Care’s annual volunteer recognition ceremony was hosted on Wednesday 22 May 2019 at Greythorn Community Centre in Box Hill, honouring years of voluntary service.After 39 years at Fronditha Care, former President, Vice-President and Treasurer Jacob Fronistas OAM was given a fitting send off after announcing his retirement.The outgoing Director was the keynote speaker at the event, and spoke about his experiences in shaping the organisation over four decades and the important role volunteers played in Fronditha Care’s success.“I have witnessed the joy of the elderly at various functions and what a difference has been made to their lives, where they would have been, isolated, miserable and depressed in mainstream facilities with no Greek language, culture or traditions,” he said.“Being a Fronditha Care volunteer has resulted in being part of the “Fronditha Family”, where caring for each other and the elderly is an important part of the success of Fronditha Care.”READ MORE: $65,000 raised for dementia care at Fronditha Care Gala Dinner Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram CEO George Lekakis also congratulated Mr Fronistas on his huge contribution to the organisation, and personally thanked him for his learned counsel during his time as CEO.Volunteers from across the organisation, whether it be the Board of Directors, the Auxiliary fundraising groups or the volunteers who visit the elderly in nursing homes or those still living at home were invited to the event.

La sécurité et lhygiène de certaines salles de sport laisseraient à désirer

first_imgLa sécurité et l’hygiène de certaines salles de sport laisseraient à désirerFrance – La Commission de la sécurité des consommateurs (CSC) a rendu le 15 avril dernier un avis dans lequel elle insiste sur la nécessité d’améliorer les conditions d’hygiène et de sécurité dans les salles de sport. Après des auditions, des enquêtes de “perception-clientèle” et des visites de salles de sport appartenant aux réseaux commerciaux, hôteliers ou associatifs, la CSC a constaté que la sécurité, l’hygiène et la prise en compte de la santé des usagers n’étaient pas au point. Premier point noir : selon elle, bon nombre de professionnels n’exigeraient pas de certificat médical de non contre-indication à la pratique sportive envisagée.La CSC demande donc aux pouvoirs publics de mettre à jour et de renforcer la réglementation concernant la sécurité dans les clubs de remise en forme, mais également d’harmoniser la formation des diplômés d’État qui y travaillent. Elle les invite également à prendre des dispositions afin que le consommateur soit mieux informé sur les services auxquels il doit s’attendre, de la simple surveillance de la salle à un encadrement par du personnel diplômé et qualifié.Un modèle type de règlement intérieur, où seraient notifiées les consignes d’hygiène et de sécurité pourrait ainsi voir le jour, tout comme un guide de bonnes pratiques pour l’entretien et la maintenance des appareils, ainsi que des grilles d’évaluation de l’aptitude physique des usagers.En outre, la commission préconise aux sportifs de consulter un médecin avant toute fréquentation d’un club de remise en forme et les incite à demander au personnel d’animation d’élaborer ensemble un programme d’entraînement individualisé et réactualisé en fonction des progrès et difficultés rencontrées.En France, entre 3 et 5 millions de personnes, soit 6 à 8% de la population, entretiennent leur forme dans les salles de sport.
