Angela Lansbury Will Lead Blithe Spirit North American Tour

first_img View Comments Blithe Spirit tells the story of Charles and his wife Ruth, who invite their friends the Bradmans over for dinner and a seance with local clairvoyant Madame Arcati, whom they are convinced is a fake. The ghost of Charles’ first wife Elvira is summoned and overstays her welcome, creating a rift between Charles and his current wife Ruth. The feuding wives—one alive, one dead—plan to sabotage each other, but will they succeed? Reprising their roles from the West End incarnation will be Charles Edwards (TV’s Downton Abbey) and Jemima Roper (One Man, Two Guvnors). Susan Louise O’Connor and Sandra Shipley, both of whom appeared in the 2009 Broadway revival, will also return. Additionally, Charlotte Parry (Coram Boy) has been tapped for the production. Further casting will be announced later. Star Filescenter_img It looks as if Tony-winning legend Angela Lansbury will indeed return back across the pond with Noël Coward’s Blithe Spirit! As previously speculated, the Michael Blakemore-helmed production, which played the West End earlier this year and starred Lansbury as Madame Arcati (a role for which she won a Tony in 2009), will receive a North American tour later this year. The tour is scheduled kick off on December 9 at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles with an official opening set for December 14. The production will continue on to San Francisco, Toronto and Washington D.C. Angela Lansburylast_img read more

Corporate interest in renewable energy growing fast in Australia

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renew Economy:Australian telecommunications giant Telstra says it is back in the market for more wind and solar projects as it seeks to boost the amount of electricity it sources from renewables.Ben Burge, Telstra’s executive director of energy, says the company – whose electricity consumption is about 1.7 terawatt hours, or nearly 1 per cent of the country’s total demand – already sources about 35 per cent of its needs from wind and solar, and wants to do more. Burge said the reasons for more investment in wind and solar were two-fold – the company wanted to do its part for the environment, but more importantly, it was a good financial deal.“We like to do stuff for the planet –and that is awesome – but these have been really lucrative deals,” Burge says, noting the savings that have been made through contracting for projects such as the Murra Warra wind farm and others. “Climate skeptics who ignore these deals – it’s just sheer stupidity.”Burge’s comments came as Macquarie Group also confirmed that it was looking to build about 20GW of large-scale renewables in the next five years, including around 1GW in Australia itself.Brian Morris, a division director at Macquarie, said there was a pipeline of about 12 terawatt hours of corporate demand in Australia – around six per cent of the country’s total demand – indicating that Telstra was not the only company in the market for such deals. “We have moved to an unsubsidised market or very close to it, Morris said. “The cost of going renewable is incredibly cheap.”Telstra has also been involved in “syndicate” deals that brought in other corporate players, and Burge said the company was looking to do more. It was also one of the biggest providers of “firming capacity,” courtesy of the generators and storage that Telstra has historically held to ensure that its telecommunications network – its towers and relay stations – have reliable power.

Race Ahead: Road Running

first_imgCRAZY 8S 8Kkingsport, tennesseejuly 13, 2013Not only was the Crazy 8s one of the first night races in the country (start time is 10:08pm), and not only is the course lit by candle luminaries, but if you beat the course record, you’ll get a check for $10,008. Good luck with that though, since the Crazy 8s course record is also the 8K World Record (22:02), set by Peter Githuka in 1996. The lure of the World Record has turned the Crazy 8s, in little Kingsport, into one of America’s must-run races, attracting the fastest runners from all over the world. Race director Hank Brown talks about the night that Peter Githuka ran the fastest 8K in history: “ We didn’t have crowd fencing back then, so once the crowd heard that someone was running at World Record pace, they filled the streets. You couldn’t see the finish line through the people. We had to dig a hole through the crowd for the runners. It was a crazy scene.” It’s at night, with candles everywhere, and runners finish in the football stadium with really loud music and the stadium lights. It’s like the X Games for road racing. crazy8.comBLUE RIDGE RELAYvirginia / north carolinaseptember 6-7, 2013A dozen runners pile into two vans and take turns rotating through 36 legs as they run 208 miles from Grayson Highlands State Park, in Virginia, to downtown Asheville via some of the prettiest country roads in the Southern Appalachians. “It’s 12 hours of suspenseful, dramatic, sleepless running adventure,” says Jerad Crave, who’s been on the winning relay team four times over. “If you want to win, each person has to run three hard races within 12 hours. You run your leg with no warm-up, finish, and jump in the van. There’s a chance to grab a few hours of sleep, but it’s so exciting, you keep going to see how everyone else is doing. It’s 3:30 in the morning when you finally try to doze off, then someone slaps your leg and says, “You’re up in 15 minutes.” blueridgerelay.comBest of the RestHilton Head Half MarathonHilton Head, South CarolinaFebruary 9, 2013 • bearfootsports.comGreen Legs and HamstringsDanville, VirginiaMarch 9, 2013 • danville-va.govShamrock 4-MilerAbingdon, VirginiaMarch 15, 2013 • werunevents.comMartinsville Half MarathonMartinsville, VirginiaMarch 23, 2013 • milesinmartinsville.comCherry Blossom 10-MilerWashington, D.C.April 7, 2013 • cherryblossom.orgKnoxville MarathonKnoxville, TennesseeApril 7, 2013 • knoxvillemarathon.comUkrops Monument Avenue 10kRichmond, VirginiaApril 13, 2013 • sportsbackers.orgDismal Swamp Stomp Half MarathonChesapeake, VirginiaApril 13, 2013 • dismalswampstomp.comCharlotte Racefest Half MarathonCharlotte, North CarolinaApril 13, 2013 • charlotteracefest.comParis Mountain Road RaceGreenville, South CarolinaApril 20, 2013 • parismountainroadrace.comFig Leaf 5KDawsonville, GeorgiaApril, 2013 • paradisevalleyclub.comRun For The Dream Half Marathon and 8kWilliamsburg, VirginiaJune 1-2, 2013 • runforachievabledream.comVirginia Wine Country Half MarathonLoudon, VirginiaJune 1, 2013 • Valley Moonlight 8kMaggie Valley, North CarolinaAugust 24, 2013 • maggievalleymoonlightrun.comAsheville Citizen-Times Marathon and Half MarathonAsheville, North CarolinaSeptember 15, 2013 • citizen-times.comTucker Community Foundation Run For It 5kDavis, West VirginiaSeptember 28, 2013 • tuckerfoundation.netThe Genworth Virginia 10-MilerLynchburg, VirginiaSeptember 28, 2013 • virginiatenmiler.comCherokee Harvest Half-MarathonCherokee, North CarolinaOctober 19, 2013 • cherokeeharvesthalf.comCharlottesville Fall Classic HalfCharlottesville, VirginiaOctober, 2013 • badtothebone.bizTuna Run 200Raleigh to Atlantic Beach, North CarolinaOctober, 2013 • tunarun200.comFreedom’s Run MarathonSheperdstown, West VirginiaOctober 12, 2013 • freedomsrun.orgAnthem Richmond MarathonRichmond, VirginiaNovember 16, 2013 • richmondmarathon.comPhiladelphia MarathonPhiladelphia, PennsylvaniaNovember 22-24, 2013 • philadelphiamarathon.comFor more great Race Ahead information check out these sections:SnowsportsTrail RunningRoad RunningMountain BikingRoad CyclingClimbingPaddlingHikingMultisportSuperlatives ROAD RUNNINGMILLER LIGHT CHARLOTTESVILLE MARATHONcharlottesville, virginiaapril 6, 2013After more than a decade, the Charlottesville Marathon has become a legitimate destination race.

Bethlehem under lockdown after virus cases confirmed

first_imgIsrael has imposed a lockdown on the city of Bethlehem over coronavirus fears as Palestinian authorities announced a two-week ban on tourists and shuttered the Church of the Nativity.The moves came after Palestinian authorities said seven cases had been confirmed in the Bethlehem area south of Jerusalem on Thursday and announced a 30-day state of emergency and the cancellation of large gatherings.All Israelis and Palestinians “are forbidden from entering or leaving the city”, the Israeli defense ministry said in a statement, adding the lockdown had been imposed “in coordination with the Palestinian Authority”. The Palestinian health ministry said the cases had first been detected at a hotel in the Bethlehem area.All were being treated in quarantine, it added.The head of the local health directorate, Imad Shahadeh, told AFP that a group of Greek tourists had visited the hotel in late February, with two later diagnosed with the virus.A number of suspected cases have since been identified among hotel workers, he said.Government officials announced a series of measures in the occupied West Bank, also including the cancellation of large sporting events and other major gatherings.Asbed Balian, senior cleric of the Armenian church at the Church of the Nativity, said infected visitors had entered the site.”People affected by corona visited the church,” he told AFP. “It will be closed for 14 days and they are going to spray antiseptic.”Schools, universities and mosques in Bethlehem were also closed Thursday and the Palestine Marathon, scheduled for March 27, has been postponed.COGAT, the Israeli body responsible for civilian activities in the Palestinian Territories, said it was “working closely with the Palestinian Authority” to stem the spread of the virus.Israel, which so far has 16 confirmed cases of the disease, has imposed stringent measures on many European nations in a bid to contain the virus.Israel has also scrapped joint military exercises with the United States in Germany.The Israeli army announced that from noon Friday all forces would be prevented from leaving Israel, whether “on personal trips or on duty”. Israel controls all entrances to the West Bank from the Jewish state but the Palestinian government has limited autonomy in cities.The Church of the Nativity, built on the site that Christians believe was the birthplace of Jesus, was closed on Thursday and is among the sites expected to be shuttered until March 20.”We have decided to prevent the entry of tourists for a period of 14 days and to prevent hotels in all cities from receiving foreigners,” tourism minister Rula Maayah told AFP.All travel between governorates without permission was now prohibited, Prime Minister Mohammed Shtayyeh told local TV.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Frank Warren: Arsenal going backwards and Dubois-Gorman winner could book Joe Joyce fight

first_imgSaunders wants to fight Smith (Picture: Getty)I’m almost avoiding Billy Joe Saunders’ calls at this stage because he’s desperate to know what’s next. I don’t understand Joe Gallagher. What kind of manager doesn’t even tell their fighter we’d made an offer? I sent the offer to Callum Smith myself, that’s the truth. Gallagher says they want over 50%, why? What does he bring to the table that Billy Joe doesn’t? It’s the fight we want, but we need them to come to the table.I’ve never met Stan Kroenke, but when I do I’ll have a few things to say to him. Speaking on behalf of the fans, what nonsense is this? They said once we built the Emirates we’d be competing with Manchester United. We’ve had that stadium for 13 years. United are stuck in the Europa League, but they’ve still spend over £70million this summer. We’re not even competing with West Ham’s budget at the moment. Nathan Gorman and Daniel Dubois are both my guys and fighters I believe will go on to do big things. This fight is a big moment for both of them, but it can be challenging promoting both of them at once.You have to hold back. Even when you’re watching the fight, I’ve got to sit on my hands. I’ve done that a few times down the years with various fighters, so it’s nothing new, but I won’t be predicting a winner. What I do know is it’s a great fight, something a bit special. Two undefeated fighters for a British heavyweight title. This is a rarity in boxing. I heard about Nathan as an amateur, but it wasn’t until Ricky Hatton signed him thatAdvertisementAdvertisementI seriously considered taking him on. Ricky really backed him and his first pro fights with Nathan were impressive. It was easy to do a deal with Ricky considering we’d worked together before and Nathan has certainly lived up to Ricky’s hype so far.

It’s a joke. We’re slipping further and further behind. It’s evident our squad isn’t good enough. I don’t know if Unai Emery is up to the job yet, but that squad… if they were boxers I would have withheld their fight purses and made them all retire after last season. We need different owners, that’s the truth.AdvertisementAdvertisementThe Kroenkes haven’t lost a penny running Arsenal. They’re absentee landlords. Look at what Liverpool did, they spent a huge amount of money on a goalkeeper and defender and became title contenders. Arsenal with these owners are only going backwards. We’re trying to buy Wilfried Zaha on the cheap, for God’s sake, it’s embarrassing.Watch Daniel Dubois v Nathan Gorman and for the British Heavyweight Championship and Joe Joyce v Bryant Jennings live tonight on BT SPORT 1HD from the O2 Arena, London.

My co-promoter Bob Arum has set a big target for the rematch. I’ll stop short of backing his prediction, but obviously I’d love to see it match Floyd Mayweather versus Manny Pacquiao. It certainly has all the ingredients for a record-breaking fight. It will be the biggest fight in the UK market since Anthony Joshua vs Wladimir Klitschko, and I think it can beat their pay-per-view return, even though it’s in America. Frank Warren: Arsenal going backwards and Dubois-Gorman winner could book Joe Joyce fight Advertisement Dubois and Gorman sparred as amateurs (Picture: Getty)Daniel and Nathan are vastly experienced for their age. People are underestimating Daniel’s boxing ability and dismissing Nathan’s punch power. Daniel’s got a great jab. Nathan is a heavy hitter. It’s not one or the other for me. I think this fight comes down to maturity – who can stick to their game plan. The winner will show the strength of mind to keep focused. I want to see the winner fight Joe Joyce, but I also believe that whoever comes through will be in a No.1 contender spot in the next nine to 12 months.ADVERTISEMENTJoe Joyce knocking out Bryant Jennings is not a foregone conclusion. Jennings was beating Oscar Rivas until the last round when he got clipped. Now Rivas is in against Dillian Whyte. They’re selling that as a tough fight for Whyte, and Jennings was beating Rivas for eleven and a half rounds. It’s a tough challenge for Joyce.last_img read more

Loss making sales still dominate Townsville market, making it attractive for investors

first_imgTownsville’s property market has felt a lot of pain in recent years.TOWNSVILLE’S unit market continues to be an attractive buy for investors according to Core Logic’s quarterly Pain and Gain report, released today.The city recorded a loss-making resale of 46.8 per cent in the September 2016 quarter – remaining steady to the previous quarter.While industry experts remain confident in a market turnaround this year, Corelogic RP Data’s senior research analyst Cameron Kusher said it was difficult to pinpoint when Townsville would see a reduction in loss-making resales.“It is difficult to know, obviously, as it is not really a pretty view in Townsville at the moment,” he said.“Looking at (the market), it tends to be more units than houses that are for sale. “Still, 42.7 per cent of houses resold at a loss over the quarter and 66.7 per cent of units. “I think the stimulus from things like mining projects and big construction projects might take a while to feature into the data.

Since this time, the proportion of loss-making sales has been gradually drifting higher. The total gross loss realised over the quarter was recorded at $477.9 million with an average gross loss of $71,529 per sale.Released every quarter, Core Logic’s Pain and Gain report compares the most recent sale price to the previous sale price in order to determine whether the property sold at a gross profit or gross loss.
