The computer virus spread through the network of Tribune Publishing, one of the nation’s largest newspaper companies, affecting newspapers including the Los Angeles Times, Baltimore Sun, Capital Gazette and the New York Daily News. It also slowed the distribution of the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times on the West Coast, as they share a printing plant with the Los Angeles Times. It is unclear how many subscribers were affected by late deliveries, though most received their papers a few hours late on Saturday morning. The virus did not access the personal data of subscribers, online readers, or advertising clients. “We believe the intention of the attack was to disable infrastructure, more specifically servers, as opposed to looking to steal information,” an anonymous source told the Los Angeles Times.

Michelle Obama surprises a dance class at her former high school

first_imgABC News/Chuck Kennedy(CHICAGO) — Former first lady Michelle Obama was greeted with squeals and shocked faces when she surprised girls in a dance class at her high school alma mater.Obama, 54, visited Whitney Young Magnet High School during a visit to her hometown of Chicago for an exclusive interview with with “Good Morning America” anchor Robin Roberts in early November.Their visit, which aired Sunday in the ABC News special “Becoming Michelle: A First Lady’s Journey with Robin Roberts,” was supposed to be a quick drop-by visit but turned into much more.As a photo of a young Obama, then named Michelle Robinson, hung on a wall nearby, the former first lady shared lessons with the girls about how she found her voice in high school. “I want you all to learn how to be advocates for yourself in this life,” Obama said. “Because people will try to take your voice and shape it in a way that has nothing to do with who you really are.”Obama also spoke candidly with the students about some of the obstacles she faced while serving as the first lady. Obama’s memoir, “Becoming,” will be released on Tuesday, Nov. 13.“I had to fight stereotypes and notions that people thought they had about what a black woman from the South Side of Chicago should be,” she said. “I was labeled as angry and not an asset to my husband, all because I was using my voice.”She added, “Don’t feel like something’s wrong with you when you have some bumps in the road.”Obama also spoke to the students about confidence in response to a question about how she had proven herself as “more than just the president’s wife.”“You have to grow to believe that in yourself. Each and every one of you as women have to, and it doesn’t happen overnight,” she said. “Confidence and all of that sort of stuff, belief, that takes time.”“You’ve seen something that I didn’t see. You grew up in a different way, so live that way. Carry that forward. Make sure that we’re not slipping backwards,” she told the students. “And that’s up to you guys as the next generation. You’ve seen great women do amazing things. You have role models everywhere now, and none of us got here easily without someone trying to hold us down.”Obama continued, “So find the [role] models that match your vision, because now they’re there. We’re all here waiting for you.I would love to hug each and every one of you. I’m proud of you guys.”When Isa Sanchez, a junior elected by the high school as a student body representative, asked Obama how she can help “make everyone as happy as can be,” Obama responded with advice likely learned from her eight years as the first lady.“First of all, you stop trying to make everybody happy. It’s impossible,” Obama said. “That’s not why people elected you. They’ve elected you because they trusted your judgment, so you’ve got to trust it.” Obama stayed to watch the girls perform the dance routine they had been rehearsing prior to the surprise visit.“I’m so proud of you,” Obama said after the performance. “Do not doubt anything.”The former first lady ended her visit with a group hug with the dance students.“For us, in this moment, it was so inspiring to see someone who we look up to give us that boost of confidence,” junior Payton James said at the end of the visit.“She could show that as females we can still speak our minds and not have to fade into the background,” senior Lauren Radomski said of Obama’s impact.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

A Theory of Justice broadens its horizons

first_imgThe producers declined to comment on rumours that the BBC want to do a televised adaption of the play, other than to confirm that the organization had expressed “potential interest” in the project. Eylon Aslan-Levy, another writer and producer, said he was “hopeful” that the play could be taken elsewhere, including Edinburgh and Cambridge. “We have received interest from people all over the world,” Levy told Cherwell, “including from places as far afield as Australia and Canada,” who are interested in doing the play themselves. After five successive sold-out performances at the Keble O’Reilly theatre the team behind A Theory of Justice: The Musical are setting their sights beyond Oxford.Ramin Sabi, one of the writers and producers of the show, which advertised itself as “an all-singing, all-dancing romp through 2,500 years of political philosophy”, claimed that “this was the fastest selling show in Oxford theatre history.” Sabi is the founder and director of DEM Productions, which produced ATOJTM.The play won critical acclaim, including five stars from Cherwell, and a ringing endorsement from the Open University’s Nigel Warburton, who called the production “brilliant:  hilarious, witty, and profound – well-plotted too, with acute philosophical asides.” He admitted “crying with laughter for most of two hours.”last_img read more

Who was that man?

first_imgDear Editor:Who was the man who rounded up all of the young children in our neighborhood on 43rd street in North Bergen in the early 1960s? He loaded us into the back of his truck and took us all out for ice-cream.I was only 7 or 8 years old and I didn’t know the man, but my father must have, because he let me go. My 9 year old brother was too shy to come along. The memory has always stuck with me because it was such a nice thing for a grown-up to do. We children had the time of our lives an unexpected thrill on a truck ride with all of our friends and a grown up doing suck a nice thing, treating us to ice-cream.The shy brother turned out to be outgoing, and I’m a hermit-type, too scared to make conversation at a cocktail party, but I still wonder, over five decades later — who was that man?

CSM sees European sales rise

first_imgBakery supplier CSM saw sales in Europe rise by 2% to €260.9m in the third quarter of 2010, driven by higher volumes in frozen products.EBITA increased from €12.2m to €16m compared with the third quarter in 2009, while CSM’s overall sales for the third quarter rose to €783.7m from €634.5m in 2009, mainly due to the acquisition of US bakery manufacturer Best Brands earlier this year.CEO Gerard Hoetmer said: “In Europe, the strategic investments in frozen products are delivering increased volumes. Together with cost management, these higher volumes contributed to the improvement in EBITA.“At Bakery Supplies North America, we remain focused on the swift integration of Best Brands, allowing the organisation to maximise its combined potential as soon as possible.”Hoetmer said he remained cautiously optimistic for the fourth quarter of 2010: “We expect our investments in our organisation and innovation to continue to create growth opportunities. The main contributor to market growth is consumer confidence, which is still weak in a number of markets.” Herman Verstraeten (previously with Unilever) will head CSM’s European businesses as the new president of Bakery Supply Europe, while Marco Bertacca, as vice-president global bakery expansion strategy, will support the board in CSM’s expansion in new regions.>>CSM sees Q1 fall in bakery demandlast_img read more

MarchFourth Issues A Musical Call To Action On New Album, “Magic Number” [Stream/Review]

first_imgThe madness and mayhem of a MarchFourth live show has been distilled into pure sonic form on their latest release, Magic Number, and it’s quite an amazing feat. Primarily known for their senses shattering performances filled with costumes, acrobatics and costumed finery, the band is more than capable of delivering a solid collection of tunes. Stripped down to their sonic core, MarchFourth shows the big band sound of eras past is more than viable to modern day sensibilities.Listen to the album below, and follow along with our in-depth review below.Kicking things off with a brassy blast from the horn section “Call To Action” serves as just that for listeners, urging them to their feet and onto the nearest dancing surface. With Galactic sax man Ben Ellman serving as producer, you’d be right in assuming that the album is filled with horn melodies. Ellman corralled fifteen members of the band into New Orleans’ famed Parlor Recording Studio for an intense, compact recording session, resulting in concise, toe tapping numbers like the swirling and energetic opener.It would be easily understandable and even forgivable if MarchFourth filled Magic Number with rampaging instrumentals, but on “The Quarter Master”, the band slows the tempos and introduces a vocal sensibility that uses echo and chorus to accurately capture the band’s live sound. A vaguely mariachi tinged horn line and an explosively propulsive beat drives the title track while a wise examination of life’s ups and downs and the importance of watching out for each other is relayed. A wicked guitar solo erupts in the center of the track adding diversity and a wicked heaviness thus far untapped, adding fresh dimension and fury.You don’t reach out to one of the standard bearers of the Nawlins funk sound without hoping to add some of that delicious flavor to your own. Tracks like “Push It Back” show these influences, while still retaining the band’s independent spirit. The fuzzy guitar line of “Inventing The Wheel” and the methodically plodding drum beats provide a delicious dichotomy between the follow the leader brass line, before erupting in a harmonica led explosion.Wound throughout this disc are guest appearances by some of NOLA’s finest, who manage to lend spice without dominating the overall flavor of the band. Legendary drummer Stanton Moore lends his stick work throughout adding to the authenticity of the sound without ever overstating his presence. “Hot Stepper,” an universal dance tune that seems so perfectly suited to serve as sonic shorthand for party music in any film or TV project that one wonders how long it’s going to take for Hollywood to come knocking and shows off the percussionists additions to mix wonderfully.Thanks to the upbeat nature of the material, MarchFourth’s music is so intrinsically positive that it can’t help but elevate the listener’s spirits on a mental and spiritual level. No song more exemplifies their effect on the psyche than “Science,” whose lyrics urge you to free your mind and soul from the chains of society. The irresistible beat and dynamic arrangement allows each piece of the band to contribute to the composition with their own style, somehow seamlessly uniting for a pure slice of funky positivity.MarchFourth has much to be proud of on Magic Number. Their decision to go into the studio with a solid deadline and distinctive production plan has resulted in a tight, joyous album. Each song is a celebration of their musical identity, each note coming from a place that is wholly their own. Managing to be both idiosyncratic and universal is an impressive feat by itself, but doing it while maintaining a completely infectious spirit is a move that shows the maturity and comfort of MarchFourth. They are truly modern masters of the big band sound.last_img read more
