Stars To Play God For Charity

first_imgCelebrity actors will be appearing as God in Monty Python’s Spamalot this summer at The Playhouse Theatre to raise money for charity.
Hugh Bonneville, Barbara Windsor, Larry Lamb, Bradley Walsh, Simon Callow and Christopher Biggins will all be appearing this summer at The Playhouse Theatre to raise money for charity.
’The Summer of Spamalot Charity Gods’ has been created to raise-a-lot of shillings for several charities including Headley Court Rehabilitation Centre, The Make-A-Wish Foundation, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Scene & Heard, Stage For Age and Keats Community Library which are supported by the actors who will be playing God.
The actors took time out of their busy schedule to film the part of God, which will be shown during each performance of Spamalot, with their portrayal running for a week at a time from 15th July onwards.
Hugh Bonneville’s performance as God kicks off the season, with a special night to celebrate the start of his week on Monday 15th July from 8pm. Barbara Windsor will then be at the theatre on Monday 5th August for her first night as God and Simon Callow will be in the audience on Monday 12th August to mark the start of his week as God. Other Gods opening nights will be announced soon.
The role of God is currently played by Python legend Eric Idle, and features in Spamalot when King Arthur and the Knights of The Round Table are given their quest to find The Holy Grail.
Sir Howard Panter (says he’s a real Knight! as if), Producer of Spamalot for Ambassador Theatre Group, said; “It is a wonderful opportunity to be able to bring friends of the show in to the role of God in this way, so that we can help such deserving causes while making audiences laugh at the same time.”
Downton Abbey star, Hugh Bonneville, will kick off the ‘Summer of Spamalot Gods’ on 15th July and he said: “I wanted to play God in Spamalot in order to support Scene & Heard, a North London charity, which gives local young people living in challenging circumstances the opportunity to work with arts professionals and create theatre scripted entirely by the children. I’m grateful to the producers of Spamalot for this novel way of bringing attention to Scene & Heard’s inspirational work. I’m also delighted to be involved with the show because an ancestor on my mother’s side was in fact one of the Knights who say Ni.”
Legendary British actress, Barbara Windsor, who plays Spamalot’s first female God, said; “I wanted to play God in Spamalot because having been 4ft 10.5 inches tall (four feet, ten and a half inches) all my life, this would be the first and only time people would look up to me…..”. Describing his portrayal as God in Spamalot, stage and screen actor, Simon Callow said; “I wanted to play God because it’s such a challenging role for a mere mortal. Spamalot is a work of genius and God is the climax. So it was irresistible. The charity to whom I’ve donated my fee is the Keats Grove Library, scandalously closed by the Local Authority and re-opened by a group of local people headed by my friend, the wonderful actor Lee Montague. I used to live round the corner as a young actor and used the library all the time. Don’t know what I would have done without it.”To find out more, click here.last_img read more

Reaching climate deal will boost private sector – UN

Nations are expected to conclude negotiations on a successor pact to the Kyoto Protocol – the legally binding emissions reduction regime whose first commitment period ends in 2012 – at December’s UN climate change conference in Copenhagen, Denmark.Over 400 delegates at a Business for the Environment (B4E) summit in Paris, hosted by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and the UN Global Compact, underscored in a closing manifesto that agreement on a new climate regime is crucial, with recovering from the current economic turmoil requiring investments in clean technologies and sustainable infrastructure systems.“Combating climate change represents perhaps the biggest stimulus package of the first decade of the 21st century – one that can assist in delivering a resource-efficient, innovation-savvy, employment-generating global Green Economy,” said Achim Steiner, UNEP Executive Director.Participants at the Paris meeting emphasized the need for increased transparency and a new risk paradigm that takes into account extra-financial issues in the realms of environment and governance.“We need to shift to a longer-term orientation of value creation, one that accommodates the understanding that the sustainability of business and societies are inextricably linked,” said George Kell, Executive Head of the office of the Global Compact, a UN alliance for responsible businesses. 23 April 2009Global business leaders at a United Nations-backed gathering today stressed the importance of reaching an ambitious climate change deal later this year, noting that such a pact will spur the growth of a ‘green’ economy. read more

Afghanistan needs financial support to prevent rights abuses UN expert

Establishing the rule of law in Afghanistan is a “formidable challenge because the country’s capacity to be able to gather the guns, to be able to silence the guns, to neutralize them and to replace them with forces that can secure the lives and security of persons, secure women’s rights against assaults and abuse, and the positive rights – access to education and health – all of these require that the capacity of the nascent institutions be built and strengthened,” said Kamal Hossain, the Special Rapporteur on human rights in Afghanistan.International funding must be provided to achieve these goals, he told a press briefing in New York. “If you are to…support the programme for change from a devastated economy, from a society in which people have been deprived of their rights, security of persons, security of life, women’s rights – if you are to restore those rights, there have to be resources made available.”He welcomed the fact that women – banned from working under the Taliban – are now back on the job, but voiced concern that teacher’s salaries have not been paid in six months. This “underlines the magnitude of the problem of restoring rights,” he said, noting that there were attacks on girls’ schools throughout the country, while some elements were distributing leaflets opposing education for young women.The local communities had responded by seeking to rebuild the educational facilities, demonstrating that “the urge for girls to go to school is there and is widely shared, and resources should therefore be made available to make those opportunities available,” Mr. Hossain said.Noting that there were many deserving causes across the globe seeking resources, he said, “I do like to make an earnest plea for Afghanistan because of the long period of deprivation and the devastation they have suffered.” read more

Kony 2012 One year later Invisible Children still focused on ending violence

first_imgTHE KONY 2012 campaign exploded across social media one year ago this week. The charity behind the viral video has said that while the international response was massive, it has not been enough to bring an end to the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).Invisible Children, which produced the Kony 2012 documentary that called for the capture and arrest of Joseph Kony, the leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army, released an anniversary film on Tuesday.In a statement to mark the anniversary, Invisible Children said the aim of the Kony campaign was to make the alleged Ugandan war criminal Joseph Kony “famous” in order to bring him to the International Criminal Court by the end of 2012. However, while they admit he is “the most wanted man in the world” he has not yet been apprehended.It is believed Kony fled to Sudan for safe haven.The organisation said they are still focused on bringing down the African warlord adding that the viral YouTube video had brought about significant achievements and progressions in the hunt for Joseph Kony, such as a drop in civilian killings by the LRA of 67 per cent from 2011 to 2012.Invisible Children also welcome President Obama committing the American special forces to the effort to track down and arrest Kony, as well as the US Congress passing new legislation in January 2013 authorising a reward of up to $5 million for information that leads to Kony’s arrest.Ugandan responseSpeaking to about behind the scenes of the Ugandan government at that time, Kevin McPartlan, who was part of a team of Irish consultants advising the government of Uganda how to manage its international reputation, said that the Kony 2012 viral campaign was something the government had to address quickly. “It was just an explosion, it happened very very quickly. We did capture it before the likes of Oprah Winfrey getting involved, so we had a day or two head start before the international media picked it up. It was very clear that this was going to get very big, very quickly.”Having looked at the film he said they believed that some aspects of the film were just untrue as far as they were concerned. He said: The initial video impression was that Kony was operational in Uganda. The Ugandan government had turfed him out in 2006. There are plenty that the Ugandans aren’t blameless for, but on this they were exemplary. It was the current prime minister of Uganda who went to the International Criminal Court and asked that Kony be indicted, so we felt it was unfair.Mr McPartlan said the Ugandan Government needed to respond to the video. “We went to the ministers and explained that this is a social media phenomenon and we need to respond through social media, that was a tough sale,” he said, adding that the Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi, who is relatively social media savvy, was reluctant. He later agreed to put out a statement via YouTube.Over the past year, Invisible Children said their fight to ending the LRA conflict has continued. With increased funding the organisation have expanded their protection programmes, which encourage LRA fighters to safely surrender, established five safe reporting sites which give designated areas where LRA combatants can surrender and expanded their early warning radio network, which alerts communities of LRA activity in their area.They state that in 2013 they will continue to focus on bringing an end to LRA violence.(Via YouTube/invisiblechildreninc)Read: Tánaiste is ‘greatly concerned’ that Joseph Kony remains at large>Video: Invisible Children release sequel video to Kony 2012>last_img read more

Science says playing StarCraft makes you smarter so stop wasting your time

first_imgA new study suggests that you have been wasting your time getting a “proper” education, doing homework, and taking tests, when you should’ve been playing real-time strategy games instead. Researchers at Queen Mary University and University College London have performed a study that found playing real-time strategy games — as opposed to other genres of video games — improved the cognitive flexibility of gamers.Cognitive flexibility is more or less your ability to think on the fly, as well as entertain different thoughts at once. Researchers collected 72 female participants and split the overall group into thirds. Two of the groups played StarCraft, while the other third played The Sims. The groups played their respective games for a total of 40 hours over six to eight weeks. The participants took psychological tests before and after the play period.The results showed that the groups playing StarCraft scored better at the post-gaming cognitive flexibility tests than the group that played The Sims. Any gamer will attest that different types of games boost certain skills; shooters will boost your twitch skills, while music games will boost your rhythm.It has been shown time and again that brain-training games don’t actually make you smarter, but instead simply train you to do well at the specific tests provided in the game. This is the same gripe people have with standardized testing; you aren’t becoming smarter, you’re just learning how to be good at a specific test.This research proved that games like StarCraft, where the critical thinking problems are fluid and you have to manage a lot of separate parts all at once, do bolster an important skill set. You won’t learn history (unless you read the Civilopedia, of course) or complicated math, but you’ll essentially learn how to better think. Another interesting tidbit from the study, is that people who played The Sims — a life simulator — scored lower on the tests when they were faced with a game that makes you perform menial, everyday tasks. Basically, science just said you should quit school and stop doing chores, for the benefit of your brain.Now read: Portal 2 will be used to teach in schoolslast_img read more

Lawmakers report Boeing money arrived after vote

first_imgSEATTLE — Some lawmakers say they didn’t receive campaign contributions from Boeing until after voting on a tax break for the company.Boeing’s political committee had reported in records to the state Public Disclosure Commission that it gave the maximum donation of $900 to seven lawmakers a few days before the Legislature approved tax incentives valued at some $9 billion.Some of the lawmakers reported that the donations were actually received days later. Republican Sen. John Braun reported receiving it nearly a month after Boeing says it was provided. Others who reported receiving the donations later were Sens. Sharon Brown and John Braun along with Reps. Norm Johnson, Charles Ross, Shelly Short and Dave Upthegrove.Brent Ludeman with the Senate Republican Campaign Committee says he doesn’t think any lawmaker on either side of the aisle was influenced by Boeing’s contributions.last_img read more

How David Holthouse Decided to Name the Bogeyman

first_imgA high profile case about an alleged child rape from 1978 is at an impasse because of Alaska’s old statute of limitations.When David Holthouse retold his story of being raped as a child to lawmakers in February, he had no idea it would set off a chain of events that would lead to filing a police report and publicly naming his rapist in the Anchorage Press last week.Download AudioDavid Holthouse’s talk in the Capitol in February set off a chain of events that led him to publicly name his rapist. (Photo by Skip Gray/360 North)Writer David Holthouse had never publicly identified the person who raped him in Eagle River when he was 7 years old.“I did not want to destroy his life by naming him,” he says.But Holthouse’s 2004 article “Stalking the Bogeyman” gives clues, including one to throw people off. According to Holthouse, the perpetrator was a star athlete at Chugiak High School and was profiled in the Anchorage Daily News. As an adult, he moved to Broomfield, Colo., a Denver-area suburb. Holthouse also wrote that his rapist was about 17-years-old. Now, Holthouse says he deliberately misrepresented the age and his perpetrator was 14 at the time.In the story Holthouse describes the traumatic experience, his plans to kill his rapist and finally confronting him as an adult.“After meeting him in person and hearing him swear to me that he had never raped a child before or after he perpetrated the crime on me, I decided that it was possible that he was telling the truth,” Holthouse says.There was a caveat though. Holthouse followed up with a letter, which said,“If any other victims come forward at any point in the future, I’m going to write a second article and this one will name you,” Holthouse says.Nearly 11 years after writing that letter, Holthouse was in the Alaska State Capitol Building sharing his story. He spoke in support of a law that would require public schools to teach sexual abuse prevention.After the talk, Holthouse says two people in the Capitol told him they might know other victims of his rapist.“I was very careful about the way I dealt with the situation,” Holthouse says. “I sort of heard them out. In both conversations, it got to the point where they said, ‘I’m going to say the name and you tell me if it’s the same person.’”It was. Holthouse says he felt relieved.“I guess the relief was just in finally knowing. The question of whether or not he was telling me the truth – it haunted me for more than a decade and I felt like I finally know,” Holthouse says.Since that day in the Capitol, Holthouse says he’s wanted to write the story naming him, but “I needed to meet one on one with people and have them tell me their stories for me to feel like I had the information to go through with it.”He tracked them down.“Eagle River in the late 1970s and the 1980s was an even smaller town than it is now, so once I had a couple of leads and a couple of names of kids, now adults, but kids who ran in the same social circle, it took me a couple months but I could sort of gently reach out to them and point them to my original piece and say, ‘Is this something that you would like to sit down and talk to me about by any chance?’”Holthouse says he’s convinced his rapist sexually assaulted two other boys and a girl. He’s heard about other suspicious incidents as well.KTOO could not reach the man for comment. According to property records, he owns a home in Broomfield, Colo. Holthouse says he still lives there. Phone numbers listed for the man were out of service. He’s not listed in sex offender registries in Alaska or Colorado.Holthouse wrote “Outing the Bogeyman” in the Anchorage Press for himself “to just finally tell on him, just to finally  give that 7-year-old a voice and tell on him.”And to let other survivors know “no matter how much time has passed, when someone rapes you when you’re a kid, they give you the power to avenge yourself and that power is you know their name and you can use it,” Holthouse says.It could be online, it could be in a letter, it could be confronting the person, it could be reporting them to the police.Holthouse has done all of these things.He recently reported the rape to the Anchorage Police Department.“My report alone is not going to prompt a criminal investigation let alone an arrest or prosecution, but they said reports like this are still important because if other victims were to come forward it would help corroborate their accounts,” Holthouse says.In 1978, the year Holthouse says he was sexually abused, the statute of limitation on child rape was ten years. Lawmakers eliminated that time constraint in September of 1992. There’s currently no statute of limitation for child rape cases.Holthouse’s case may not be viable for prosecution. But if someone comes forward with an incident that occurred after 1982, that’s fair game.last_img read more

White House was warned Flynn a blackmail risk

first_imgMichael Flynn (R). AFP file photoThe White House was warned in January that Donald Trump’s national security advisor Michael Flynn was vulnerable to Russian blackmail, a top former official told lawmakers Monday, as the issue of the president’s ties to Moscow returned to the spotlight.Trump hit back by dismissing suggestions that his team colluded with Russia as a “hoax,” and calling the congressional investigations into Russia’s interference in the US election a taxpayer-funded “charade.”Former acting attorney general Sally Yates, a Barack Obama appointee sacked by Trump early in his presidency, took the stand alongside former director of national intelligence James Clapper during Monday’s hotly-anticipated three-hour hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee.Yates confirmed reports that she had told the White House, six days into Trump’s administration, that Flynn, a former military intelligence chief, had not been honest with Vice President Mike Pence about his discussions with the Russian ambassador to Washington, leaving him vulnerable to leverage from Moscow.It nevertheless took 18 days before the president, pressed by Pence and others, dismissed the retired army lieutenant general, who had advised him on security issues throughout the 2016 presidential campaign.“We believed that General Flynn was compromised with respect to the Russians,” Yates told the hearing in her first public comments on the scandal which has dogged the opening months of Trump’s presidency.“This was a problem because not only did we believe that the Russians knew this but that they likely had proof of this information. And that created a compromise situation, a situation where the national security advisor essentially could be blackmailed by the Russians.”Yates, who was fired on January 30 after defying Trump over his contested travel ban, did not say what Flynn discussed with ambassador Sergey Kislyak in a number of December 2016 phone calls, which were secretly monitored by US intelligence.Pence said in January that Flynn denied those calls involved sanctions placed on Russia by the Obama administration in response to its election meddling.Obama warned TrumpTrump has repeatedly branded the issue of Russian interference “fake news” despite the US intelligence community’s conclusion that President Vladimir Putin himself was behind the meddling.In a series of tweets Monday evening, Trump doubled down on that stance.“The Russia-Trump collusion story is a total hoax, when will this taxpayer funded charade end?” fumed one post, while in a second the president targeted Yates—claiming she had “said nothing but old news!” after earlier assailing her for allegedly leaking classified information.Known as a tough and independent prosecutor, Yates has been a target of Trump’s ire since her refusal in January to support his controversial immigration ban on nationals from several Muslim-majority nations—for which he fired her.Yates’ comments came after former Obama officials revealed that the outgoing president himself firmly warned Trump against naming Flynn as national security advisor, just two days after the November 8 election.Obama had cautioned against Flynn, whom he fired in 2014 as head of the defense intelligence agency, due to his poor record in administration and personnel management.In separate testimony Monday, Clapper called Russia’s interference in last year’s election “a clarion call for vigilance and action against a threat to the very foundations of our democratic political system.”“I believe they’re now emboldened to continue such activities in the future, both here and around the world, and to do so even more intensely,” he said.The dual testimony by Yates and Clapper returned the spotlight to the simmering controversy over Russia’s meddling in last year’s US election.Probes by several congressional committees into Russian election meddling have been bogged down for weeks amid accusations by Democrats that Republicans have stalled progress to protect the White House.last_img read more

BTRC not to allow less than 7day internet packages

Cozumel looking for maritime ferry security solution

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling It leads to a college-like atmosphere, with fans as knowledgeable as they are passionate. They really love their Packers in a way many of us would not be able to understand.It’s a great environment to watch a football game, though I imagine my experience would have been different if I was wearing Vikings or Bears colors. If anything, it seemed like the crowd felt bad for me more than anything.Seriously, the worst heckling I got was “Arizona? What are you doing here?I responded by saying “Freezing my ass off.” If posed with a similar question, the Cardinals could have easily responded with the same answer as the last few weeks.“Ruining our season, one play at a time.”It truly was a team effort Sunday.Whether it was due to poor play calling, dropped passes, lousy special teams play or defensive lapses, the Cardinals once again ended up on the wrong side of the scoreboard.Bad teams find ways to lose games, and right now the Cardinals are a really bad team. It was fifth straight loss, and the only saving grace is that number six is at least two weeks away when they pay a visit to the undefeated Atlanta Falcons. It will be loss number six, which will likely be followed by numbers seven, eight, nine and 10. It is simply tough to see this team turning things around. 0 Comments   Share   Possible? Yes. Likely? Nope. Call it pessimism born from a five-game skid or just an admission of reality, but things are not looking good for the team this season. No changes of any real significance will be made over the next two months.In Norse mythology, Valhalla is a place where heroes slain in battle are received so they can wait before being deployed into battle once again. It’s a place of honor, glory, happiness. The Packers have their stadium. The Cardinals, if they’re lucky, will have next season. – / 13center_img Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt, ever the optimist (outwardly), refuses to give in and say his team is more the squad that’s lost the last five games than the one that won its first four games.“We still believe we can win football games on the back end of this season and be a good football team and that’s what your focus is,” the coach said. “We’re not just making change to make change. If we make a change we’re looking to make our team better.”Maybe he’s right. Just five weeks ago the discussion was about just how far the Cardinals could go, as their elite defense was enough to carry a pedestrian offense to wins on a weekly basis. The team’s arrow was clearly pointing upward, and there was little question that these were not the “Same Old Cardinals”.It’s getting increasingly more difficult to buy into that line of thinking these days.Sure, a change at left tackle may help, and it’s possible the emergence of the Michael Floyd will impact the offense in a greater way than we can speculate.And with Beanie Wells set to return soon, perhaps the offense will finally have the balance it so desperately seeks. My cousin calls Lambeau Field “Valhalla”, and it was great to finally see the place in person.Home of the Green Bay Packers and the Arizona Cardinals’ latest loss, is a hell of a place. The stadium is located in a residential neighborhood, and there is no upper deck — only a giant lower bowl. The entire city basically shuts down on game day, and even the local McDonald’s is painted with a green and gold color scheme.
