Cue the Chandelier! Norm Lewis & Sierra Boggess Meet Up at Les Miz

first_img View Comments The Phantom of the Opera It’s been five years since Norm Lewis and Sierra Boggess went “Under the Sea” in The Little Mermaid, and now they’re returning to Broadway together again (on land, this time) this spring! The duo will play the Phantom and Christine in the Andrew Lloyd Webber mega-musical The Phantom of the Opera beginning May 12 at the Majestic Theatre. But before they bring the “Music of the Night” to the masses, they stormed the barricades on opening night of Les Miserables to cheer on Ramin Karimloo, Will Swenson and the new cast.

“Libertad” Frigate Crew Arrives in Argentina; Ship Impounded in Ghana

first_img A total of 280 sailors from the Argentine Navy training vessel Libertad, that was impounded in Ghana due to a lawsuit filed by a hedge fund, arrived in Buenos Aires’s Ezeiza International Airport on board a charter flight on October 25, reported AFP. The Argentine Navy frigate crew, retained at a port near Accra since October 2, arrived on an Air France special flight at the airport, where the Sailors were received by their families with a warm round of applause. Most of the Argentine crew arrived on the flight, together with their counterparts from Chile, Paraguay, Brazil, Ecuador, and Venezuela, the guests who participated in the training tour, a Navy spokesman told AFP. While conducting its annual training tour, the ship was impounded by a Ghanaian court order issued by a judge that accepted a legal claim from a hedge fund on Argentina’s defaulted sovereign bonds, which had gone into default by about 1 billion dollars in 2001. “The happiness of this reunion is mixed with sadness, because the ship is something that I feel is mine. This was my third trip. I didn’t want to leave the boat, but the commander assigned others to stay onboard,” Martín Tejera told AFP as he stepped off the plane and hugged his four children, the youngest being born two months ago when he was in open waters. The remaining crew stayed on board the Libertad in order to guarantee the maintenance of the ship at the Port of Tema , consists of its captain and 44 crew members,. The lawsuit that provoked the seizure was filed over 370 million dollars by the holding company NML Capital, headquartered in the Cayman Islands, after refusing to accept a debt restructuring with important cutbacks that Argentina offered between 2005 and 2010, for 93% of its debt in default. This incident generated internal controversy in the Argentine government, which caused Admiral Carlos Alberto Paz, Chief of Navy Intelligence, to resign after the government penalized two officers. The frigate’s training tour had scheduled several stops in Latin America, Europe, and Africa, while in 2011 it only docked in regional ports, to avoid seizure attempts by creditor hedge funds.

WHO issues definitions for human H5N1 cases

first_imgAug 29, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – The World Health Organization (WHO) today released a list of case definitions for human H5N1 avian influenza infection to improve reporting and tracking of the disease.The WHO said the use of standard definitions will help national and international authorities report and classify human cases, promote better communication, and allow the comparison of data across time and between places. The agency worked with several partners to develop the definitions.Officials listed several caveats about using the terminology. The case definitions apply only to the current phase of pandemic alert (phase 3, no or very limited human-to-human transmission) and may change as new information emerges about the disease or its epidemiology. National authorities should notify the WHO only about probable or confirmed H5N1 cases. The definitions are not intended to provide complete case descriptions, but to standardize case reporting.Clinical decisions about the care of patients who may have H5N1 infection should be based on clinical judgment and epidemiologic reasoning, not on the case definitions, the WHO said. The agency said that although most patients with H5N1 infection have had fever and lower respiratory symptoms, the clinical spectrum is broad.The case definitions include:Person under investigation: A person whom public health authorities are investigating for possible H5N1 infection.Suspected H5N1 case: A patient who has unexplained acute lower respiratory illness with a fever greater than 38°C (100.4°F) and cough, shortness of breath, breathing difficulty, and one or more of the following exposures 7 days before symptom onset:Close contact within 1 meter (eg, caring for, speaking with, or touching) with a person who is a suspected, probable, or confirmed H5N1 caseExposure to (eg, handling, slaughtering, defeathering, butchering, or preparing for consumption) poultry or wild birds, their remains, or their feces where H5N1 infections in animals or humans have been suspected or confirmed in the last monthConsumption of raw or undercooked poultry where H5N1 infections in animals or humans have been suspected or confirmed in the last monthClose contact with a confirmed H5N1-infected animal other than poultry or wild birds (eg, cat or pig)Handling human or animal samples suspected of containing the H5N1 virus in a laboratory or other setting.Probable H5N1 case (notify WHO):Definition 1: A person who meets the criteria for a suspected case and has either (1) evidence of acute pneumonia on a chest radiograph plus respiratory failure (hypoxemia, severe tachypnea) or (2) laboratory confirmation of influenza A but insufficient laboratory evidence for H5N1Definition 2: A person dying of an unexplained respiratory illness who is epidemiologically linked by time, place, and exposure to a probable or confirmed H5N1 case.Confirmed H5N1 case (notify WHO): A patient who meets the criteria for a suspected or probable case and has had one of the following test results from a national, regional, or international influenza laboratory whose H5N1 test results are accepted by the WHO:Isolation of an H5N1 virusPositive H5 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) results from tests using two different PCR targets (eg, primers specific for influenza A and H5 hemagglutinin)A fourfold or greater rise in neutralization antibody titer for H5N1 based on testing of an acute serum specimen (collected 7 days or less after symptom onset) and a convalescent serum specimen. The convalescent neutralizing antibody titer must be 1:80 or higherA microneutralization antibody titer for H5N1 of 1:80 or greater in a single serum specimen collected at day 14 or later after symptom onset and a positive result using a different serologic assay, such as a horse red blood cell hemagglutination inhibition titer of 1:160 or more or an H5-specific Western blot positive result.See also:Aug 29 WHO statement on case definitions for human H5N1 infectionslast_img read more

With past in mind, Marrone preps SU for South Florida

first_img Published on October 4, 2010 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ Commentscenter_img Delving into his weekly pregame routine, Doug Marrone began analyzing SU’s numbers against South Florida over the past five years. A few numbers stood out. USF’s additional 163 yards on the ground and 209 yards of total offense per game, offensively. The 3.4 more sacks and the difference of 24.2 points per game for the Bulls, culminating in a 5-0 record against the Orange. As Marrone began rambling off those numbers, the sheer dominance of SU’s five-year series with the Bulls came to light. It’s what Marrone argues has been SU’s most devastating opponent over the past five years. ‘Everyone understands that since South Florida has joined the Big East, you could argue that they pretty much have dominated us,’ Marrone said Monday at his weekly press conference. ‘They’ve got a new coach in Coach (Skip) Holtz, who is coming off back-to-back Conference USA championships, so he knows how to win, knows how to get his team ready to go.’ Despite some new faces at South Florida, both on the field and on the sidelines, Marrone still sees this year’s USF squad as one capable of dominance. Still, as Syracuse travels to Tampa, Fla., to take on the Bulls Saturday (noon, Big East Network), Marrone and the Orange will make the necessary preparations to collect a win in their Big East opener. At Monday’s press conference, Marrone said he planned to enlighten his players of the recent history of SU’s series with the Bulls. But the reality is, as Marrone said, ‘they know what has gone on here, probably better than I have. We have players who have been here since 2005.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Some of them may even remember the 27-0 beatdown the Bulls put on the Orange at the Carrier Dome in 2005. Or the 45-13 walloping SU took down in Tampa during its last trip to Raymond James Stadium in 2008. Regardless, Marrone plans to make sure those memories stir up some emotion this week. Marrone said his squad resumed practicing and his staff began reviewing film Thursday, Friday and Saturday during its bye week. Through USF’s first four games, Marrone still sees that dominance as present as ever. ‘I look at a team that has been to four straight bowl games and a team that knows how to win,’ Marrone said. ‘Then you go ahead and implement a coach that has won (conference) championships, and it’s a pretty good recipe for success.’ Added Marrone: ‘I do see them, and it’s not any disrespect to their coaches last year, but they are running to the football, and they are technically doing a lot of good things.’ And coming off a bye week in which SU was able to heal from some of its ‘nicks and bruises,’ a road trip against South Florida could be the toughest test of the season for the Orange. The Bulls outscored their opponents 114-29 in their three wins, with its only loss coming at then-No. 8 Florida. The Bulls also sit in the top five in the conference in total defense (third), scoring defense (fourth) and scoring offense (third). And to Marrone, USF is only getting better each week. ‘Probably, from their standpoint, they’re coming off probably their most complete game against Florida Atlantic,’ Marrone said. ‘They played well on offense, defense and special teams. They’re playing better than they did a year ago.’ As the Orange prepares for what could be its most daunting task of the season to date, the sheer dominance of the Bulls in recent years puts SU in a similar situation during its trip to Seattle to face Washington. For just the second time this season, the Orange isn’t the favorite. And based upon that recent history, it could be an uphill battle. Not exactly Akron, Maine and Colgate. ‘We’re faced with a great challenge going down there, and it’s one we’re looking forward to,’ Marrone said. ‘We know we’ve got a tough road going down there to South Florida.’ Smith out for season Freshman running back Jerome Smith will miss the remainder of the season after suffering an injury to his left shoulder, according to a press release issued by the Syracuse athletic department. The injury was sustained on Oct. 1, and an MRI performed on Monday revealed an injury to the shoulder joint that will require surgery. Smith, a native of Bear, Del., contributed primarily on special teams in the Orange’s two most recent games against Maine and Colgate. He is one of 15 freshmen who have seen playing time for SU this season. [email protected]last_img read more

Florida man charged in mass shooting plot after investigators find weapons in his home

first_imgA Florida man has been charged with plotting to commit a mass shooting after authorities found that he lied about having any weapons in his apartment.Officials were alerted to 25-year-old Tristan Scott Wix, after his ex-girlfriend showed them several text messages from him where he claimed he wanted to be known as the most prolific killer in American history and that he already had a place in mind.“When you look at this kid’s background, he is the profile of a shooter,” Volusia County Sheriff Michael Chitwood said. “He lost his job, he lost his girlfriend, he’s depressed, he’s got the ammunition and he wants to become known for being the most prolific killer in American history.”When Wix was arrested on Friday, he originally told authorities that he did not have any weapons and that he was only fascinated with mass shootings, however, when investigators, searched his apartment they found a .22-caliber hunting rifle and 400 rounds of ammunition.Wix is currently being held at the Volusia County Branch Jail without bond. It is unclear if he has a lawyer.last_img read more
