Jeremy Jordan & Original Cast Will Reunite for Newsies

first_imgKara Lindsay and Jeremy Jordan(Photo: Deen van Meer) View Comments It’s official! The rumors were true and Newsies will make its worldwide cinema debut in early 2017, starring Jeremy Jordan, reprising his Tony Award-nominated performance as Jack Kelly. It’s all thanks to those folks over at Disney Theatrical Productions teaming up with Fathom Events.Those joining Jordan from the original Broadway cast include Kara Lindsay as Katherine, Ben Fankhauser as Davey and Andrew Keenan-Bolger as Crutchie, with North American tour stars Steve Blanchard as Joseph Pulitzer and Aisha de Haas as Medda Larkin. Additional cast from the Broadway and North American tour ensemble will also return.Jordan and the returning original Broadway cast members will join the cast of the North American tour for one performance only, which will be filmed on September 11 at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre in Hollywood in front of an invited audience.Featuring a Tony-winning score by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman and a book by Harvey Fierstein, Newsies follows Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of teenaged “newsies,” who dreams only of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. When publishing titans Joseph Pulitzer and William Randolph Hearst raise distribution prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack finds a cause to fight for and rallies newsies from across the city to strike for what’s right.The musical is directed by Tony nominee Jeff Calhoun and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli, who won a 2012 Tony Award for his work. The score includes such songs as “Santa Fe,” “Carrying the Banner,” “Seize the Day,” “King of New York” and “Once and for All.”last_img read more

UGA Measures Impact

first_imgThe research enterprise at UGA is on an upward trajectory, with a 7 percent increase in external funding from federal agencies such as the National Institutes of Health as well as private organizations such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation over the past fiscal year. In addition to contributing to advances in health, safety and security, such research funding generates economic impact by bringing money into Georgia that is spent on equipment and personnel. Using a commonly used model known as IMPLAN, Dorfman and his colleagues found that UGA generates nearly $2 in economic impact for each $1 of federal and foundation research funding it receives. The study, conducted by UGA economist Jeffrey Dorfman, of the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, quantified variables such as the increase in earnings that graduates of the university’s schools and colleges receive, revenues from the licensing of university inventions, and the creation of business and jobs resulting from the university’s public service and outreach units. “UGA’s public service experts are out in the state every day making a difference in people’s lives, whether by training elected officials and community leaders, helping companies grow their businesses, or diversifying opportunities for coastal fishermen,” said Jennifer Frum, vice president for public service and outreach. “It is our mission to help Georgia prosper by developing leaders, creating jobs and addressing issues critical to local communities. The economic impact study confirms what we already know, that we provide taxpayers a good return on their investment.” “Nowhere is the bond between the state of Georgia and the University of Georgia more evident than in our far-reaching economic impact,” said President Jere W. Morehead. “The contributions of UGA faculty, staff, students and alumni are helping to ensure a strong economic future for our state.” To put the value of UGA’s academic programs into perspective, the researchers took the economic impact created by the degrees that UGA awarded in the 2013-14 academic year and divided it by state funding. They found that UGA generates nearly $39 for each dollar of state instructional funding. Georgia’s flagship university has a $4.4 billion annual economic impact on the state, according to a new study that analyzed how the three-part teaching, research and service mission of the University of Georgia contributes to the state’s economy. Educating StudentsEach year, more than 9,000 UGA students earn undergraduate, graduate and professional degrees in fields ranging from business to engineering, the sciences, arts and humanities. To measure the economic impact of these degrees, Dorfman and his colleagues took data on earnings by major and multiplied the estimated value of each degree and major offered by UGA by the number of graduates in the 2013-2014 academic year. To ensure they were capturing the economic impact in Georgia alone, they multiplied the economic impact of the degrees awarded by the percentage of each college’s alumni who remain in the state after graduation. Overall, 62 percent of UGA graduates remain in the state after earning their degrees. “Our findings are a conservative estimate of the university’s economic impact on the state of Georgia,” Dorfman noted, “so the $4.4 billion figure that we arrived at should be treated as the minimum impact UGA has on the state.” “UGA researchers continually strive to make new discoveries that underlie the innovative products and companies that help drive Georgia’s economy,” said David Lee, UGA vice president for research. “Through our technology transfer and startup company support, the UGA research enterprise ensures that UGA discoveries reach their full potential for public benefit, in Georgia and beyond.” center_img Dorfman noted that he designed the study to only capture economic impacts that would not exist were it not for the presence of the University of Georgia. He also emphasized that many UGA programs create economic impacts that are difficult if not impossible to measure. The university’s 4-H youth development and mentoring programs, for example, have been shown to encourage healthy choices, civic participation and interest in science, technology, engineering and math. In the 2103-2014 school year, 4-H served more than 115,000 students in schools across Georgia. Serving GeorgiaService to the state of Georgia is an integral part of UGA’s land-grant mission, and the university’s public service and outreach units contribute to economic prosperity and quality of life through programs for individuals, businesses and communities. Public Service and Outreach at UGA has a $345 million annual impact on the Georgia economy, the study found. UGA’s Small Business Development Center, for example, last year provided 4,705 small business owners and prospective entrepreneurs with advice and expertise through its 17 offices across the state. SBDC assistance led to the creation of more than 3,000 new jobs over that period and helped launch more than 330 new businesses. The researchers also quantified cost savings associated with the more efficient operation of state and local governments as a result of training programs offered by UGA’s Carl Vinson Institute of Government and the value of services offered by units such as Marine Extension. Licensing and royalty revenue from these inventions contribute to UGA’s economic impact, as do companies that are launched based on UGA inventions. More than 60 Georgia companies are based on UGA inventions, including biotech companies Abeome Corporation and ArunA Biomedical, agricultural technology company Electrostatic Spraying Systems, and educational software company Cogent Education. “The University of Georgia has more than 181,000 alumni in each of Georgia’s 159 counties,” noted Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost Pamela Whitten. “They include business leaders, teachers, physicians, scientists and elected officials, and all of them play a critical role in the economic vitality of our state.” Fueling DiscoveriesDiscoveries by UGA scientists have resulted in more than 575 products that have reached the marketplace, including medicines, vaccines and software, as well as crop, ornamental plant and turfgrass varieties. Most recently, the FDA approved sale of a new drug, called Kanuma, that is based on a technology developed by a UGA startup company. Kanuma is a treatment for patients with a life-threatening ultra-rare disease. last_img read more

Corn Crop

first_imgGeorgia’s corn yields were lower than expected this season due to prolonged cloudy conditions this summer, according to University of Georgia Cooperative Extension corn, soybean and small grains agronomist Reagan Noland.Following this harvest season, Noland said that farmers reported yields that were between 8 and 12 percent below average. For farmers who average 270 bushels per acre, this is as much as 20 to 30 bushels per acre below their average.“The big limiting factor was the cloudy weather right around the time the corn was switching gears from vegetative to reproductive growth,” he said. “When the corn starts to tassel and the silk comes out where the ears are forming — that’s when we started having all the cloudy weather.”Limited sunlight led to a reduced photosynthesis rate for the corn. The crop didn’t capture and convert enough energy to maximize kernel development, Noland said.“While the rainy conditions were great for our dryland crop, the cloudiness wasn’t so great for our irrigated crop,” he said. “Growers put in much greater inputs for irrigated corn to minimize factors that limit yield. With greater yield potential, solar radiation became the most limiting factor. Major issues didn’t occur this year until that midsummer cloudiness.”Noland also said that some eastern Georgia farmers reported southern rust, a common corn pathogen that can affect the whole crop. Southern rust infects corns leaves. The leaves can’t produce as many sugars through photosynthesis, which reduces yield. It can also drain the stalk of its strength.“Some farmers observed these rust issues too late. By the time they recognized the problem, some damage to the crop (and yield potential) had already occurred,” he said.Low-yield conditions can affect prices, but since corn is a commodity crop that is sourced and traded globally, regional yield loss like this will not likely have a great impact on the market, Noland said.Adam Rabinowitz, an Extension agricultural economist on the UGA Tifton campus, said prices for corn are especially low this year.“Corn prices are down, but all crop prices are down, for that matter,” Rabinowitz said. “There’s a lot of corn on the market right now. While this is good for feed markets, it’s bad for farmers.”According to Nasdaq, corn currently sells for about $3.41 per bushel, well below early July’s $4.15 price for corn.Corn is a major industry in Georgia. According to the UGA Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development, corn was planted on more than 342,000 acres in 2015 and recorded a farm gate value of $252.9 million.last_img read more

Gov. Wolf Highlights Efforts to Improve Workforce Development in Pennsylvania, Cuts Ribbon on Northeast Philadelphia Workforce Development Center

first_img March 05, 2020 Gov. Wolf Highlights Efforts to Improve Workforce Development in Pennsylvania, Cuts Ribbon on Northeast Philadelphia Workforce Development Center Jobs That Pay,  Press Release,  Workforce Development Governor Tom Wolf today helped cut the ribbon on Toben Center, Northeast Philadelphia’s first comprehensive workforce development center. He was joined by Sen. Christine Tartaglione, Rep. Jared Solomon and representatives from Toben Center tenants PhillyWorks, Harcum College, and Northeast Learning Center to celebrate this new piece of workforce development, which builds upon programs already established by the Wolf Administration and proposed as part of Gov. Wolf’s 2020-21 Budget.“Workforce development is one of my highest priorities because Pennsylvanians can’t get good jobs without the training they need, and businesses can’t succeed without trained workers,” Gov. Wolf said. “Last year, I signed an executive order creating the Keystone Economic Development and Workforce Command Center. I tasked a group of leaders from labor, business and government with identifying hurdles that prevent workers from finding good jobs, and businesses from finding good workers. The Toben Center will serve as a ladder up for residents of Northeast Philadelphia’s neighborhoods and it will strengthen the business community by creating a stronger pool of educated, skilled workers.”Gov. Wolf’s budget proposes $12 million for competitive grants to address employment barriers and a $2 million increase for WEDnetPA, which helps businesses with training to upskill existing employees. The investments will continue the progress already made on overcoming the hurdles the Command Center identified that can prevent workers from success, including transportation, child care, re-entry, licensure and training. Many of these are addressed by services offered at the Toben Center.The governor’s innovative workforce development initiative PAsmart launched two years ago and has invested $30 million to expand hands-on job training through career and technical education, registered apprenticeships and Next Generation Industry Partnerships. The number of apprentices registered with the Department of Labor and Industry annually has tripled since 2015 when the Apprenticeship and Training Office was created.The center houses the Northeast Learning Center, which provides high school equivalency preparation and exams; Harcum College, which offers course work for human services and business management degrees; and a PhillyWorks and PA CareerLink career and training facility. Many of these services were not previously available in the Northeast.“In today’s macro economy, employment opportunities are plenty,” said Sen. Christine Tartaglione. “Yet many Pennsylvanians find themselves unemployed or underemployed due to local economic conditions or business closings. I am thrilled that the Toben Center will offer the people of the Greater Northeast opportunities to enhance their education and skills, improve their marketability, and connect with potential employers. The Center will help folks advance their careers and create a better life for their families.”“Today is a great day in Northeast Philadelphia as we celebrate the grand opening of a new, innovative approach to job and career training,” Rep Jared Solomon said. “I am grateful to Gov. Wolf for visiting the Toben Center on Castor Avenue to re-affirm his commitment to help the people of Northeast Philadelphia build family-sustaining careers. The Toben Center offers a one-stop-shop for that we have never had before in my neighborhood, and with the Governor’s support, I believe this can be a model for other parts of Philadelphia and Pennsylvania.”“Thanks to my state representative, Jared Solomon, a vision that has been in the planning for several years has come to fruition,” said Bonnie Kaye, M.Ed., director of the Northeast Learning Center. “Our mission at Northeast Learning Center has always been success for people whose lives were at a standstill because they lacked a high school diploma. Now we have an opportunity to open new doors for our students to achieve further success by offering their next step of college or employment.”“Governor Wolf’s dedication to workforce is evident through these types of strategic partnerships, which he spoke of in his recent State budget address,” said H. Patrick Clancy, president and CEO at Philadelphia Works. “As the State’s largest workforce board, we strive to stay aligned with the Governor’s priorities. The location of the Toben Center directly addresses transportation access and gaps in workforce training. The services provided in the center ensure that education and workforce resources are accessible at the same time, in the same space, lessening the burden on career seekers. In workforce, we work better together.”center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

IPE Views: Talk-talk-talking in Brussels

first_imgAs experts themselves, they would have learned little. Few could not have known that the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) legislative proposal is planned to tune up €21bn into a €315bn investment fund, much to come from institutional investors.What the CoR Junker evening did give its audience was access to a palatial building, a state-of-the-art conference room and enticing food and drink to round off the evening. Also, items on the menu were, sadly, not atypical. There was an abundance of lecturing, some of it verging on pontification, and a plethora of generalisations.How’s this for a verbal jewel from someone who should know better? He would be “pleased to engage constructively with MEPs and civil society through this new structure about the Investment Plan for Europe and how it can help give the EU economy a boost”. Perhaps not drivel in itself, but relatively meaningless.Well, some sensible voices at the meeting did state one obvious truth. Potential investors in European infrastructure developments could not be forced to participate, they said. Investors should be free to judge projects on merit!So what do we get from the Committee? In fact, an “opinion”, drafted by its official CoR coordinator, who apparently disdains market-based principles. Claude Gewerc warned against the “risk of territorial concentration”. And he called for “greater attention to be given to weaker regions”.Politically correct? In Brussels, it would sail through! So how about another verbal gem related to EFSI, as a “push forward [to] a new wind of positive change; thus we will boost smart growth and create sustainable jobs”. Good on you, Markku Markkula, Mr CoR President, done at his inauguration into office, in February.However, the CoR did one thing well, to have invited as a speaker Christian Thimann, member of the executive committee at AXA. Thimann suggested EFSI could benefit from setting up a list of viable projects, preferably including a prediction of cash flow for each.  With Solvency II in mind, he would like to see a more rational categorisation of the relevant finance bonds. No doubt, he believes a better a status for EFSI bonds would add considerably to their market attractiveness as compared with simple ‘corporate bonds’.  The Juncker plan conference is, regrettably, not alone. In Brussels, one conference on a subject can follow after another. This talk-talk ‘industry’ achieves little, apart from spinning time away.Furthermore, the actual delivery of speeches is commonly pathetic. And audiences are too polite – or are they too “wet” – to protest at experts delivering incomprehensibly. Some speak at more than 130 words a minute.Talk-talk, indeed. Jeremy Woolfe is less than impressed with level of discourse among Europe’s bureaucrats Progress in the Juncker investment plan to boost the European economy is advancing in Brussels. Is it? In the European Parliament, yes, things look good. The Parliament’s relevant committees have recently voted support, subject to provisos on robbing R&D and transport budgets. And the European Investment Bank is making a racing start.But a conference organised by one of the 45 or so less prominent EU institutions brings to light a woeful Brussels feature. This is to seize any new initiative to feed into an un-stoppable Brussels industry, the talking shop … talk-talk-talk, for its own sake. For the Juncker plan, the EU’s Committee of the Regions (CoR) called in an audience of 300-plus as the victims. The guest list included representatives from fund management, insurance, pensions, political bodies and infrastructure interests such as from railways and other sectors.last_img read more

Israel’s new Ambassador to Dominica presents credentials

first_img Sharing is caring! H.E. Moshe Sermoneta, Israel’s new Ambassador to Dominica presents credentials to His Excellency, the President, Dr. Nicholas J. O. LiverpoolH.E. Moshe Sermoneta is Israel’s new Ambassador to Dominica. The Ambassador presented his letters of credentials to Dominica’s head of state H.E. Dr Nicholas Liverpool on Wednesday.“Throughout the years, Dominica and Israel have maintained friendly relations that were reflected principally in Israel’s commitment to the development of Dominica. This was done through technical assistance extended either directly by the Centre of International Cooperation of the Israeli Foreign Ministry or in cooperation with CARICOM and the OAS’s Young Americas Youth Business Trust (YABT). As recently was last month, for example, Israeli experts participated in a YABT Rural Tourism Business Lab that took place here in Dominica. In the same vein, we are now coordinating a visit of an agricultural expert to the country with a view to expanding our development assistance activity on the ground in accordance with the priorities of the Government of Dominica.”President of Dominica H.E. Dr Nicholas Liverpool welcomed the new ambassador to Dominica.He is confident that there will be continued cordial relations between Dominica and Israel“I have no doubt that you will continue the work of your predecessors in strengthening the bonds of friendship and cooperation which already exist between our two countries and will explore new and better means to improve and deepen bilateral cooperation as we strive for the development of our people.Dominica has not been able to take full advantage of the numerous training courses offered by your country because of the high cost of air travel. It is Dominica’s wish to discuss with your country the possibility of fully funding a few of the courses, in order to encourage broader participation, and also to explore opportunities in areas such as energy, food security, health and education, which could form part of a technical cooperation agreement between our two countries.Our cooperation with your country in the regional and international arena can be counted upon and we look forward to providing continued support for the candidacy of the State of Israel on various international bodies in appropriate circumstances.”The Israeli Ambassador also met with Hon Acting Prime Minister Rayburn Blackmoore.By: Mervin MatthewGovernment Information Service Share Share 15 Views   no discussionscenter_img Tweet LocalNews Israel’s new Ambassador to Dominica presents credentials by: – August 11, 2011 Sharelast_img read more
