Watch Ruthie Ann Miles & Conrad Ricamora Perform a Number from Here Lies Love

first_imgNothing like an in-office dance workout on a Monday afternoon! Ruthie Ann Miles, Conrad Ricamora and the cast of Here Lies Love stopped by MyFoxNY to discuss and perform a number from the musical. During the off-Broadway show, which tells the rags to riches story of former First Lady of the Philippines Imelda Marcos, the actors aren’t the only ones moving around. “Imelda loved to dance,” Miles explains, “and so it’s pretty easy to imagine that we put it in a disco, so the audience gets to participate and dance with us the whole time.” They also revealed which TV mogul joined them on the floor and can’t stop talking about the show. Get up from your desk and dance along to their rendition of “Child of the Philippines” below!

Matthew James Thomas (Pippin) and Derek Klena (Wicked) are back as Fenwick and Boogie, respectively, after playing the roles in the show’s world premiere at Virginia’s Signature Theatre. This new production will run December 2 through December 27 at the Delaware Theatre Company in Wilmington, Delaware.The company will also include the return of Aaron Finley as Billy, along with Noah Weisberg as Shrevie (instead of Josh Grisetti), Ari Brand as Eddie (instead of Adam Kantor) and Ethan Slater as Modell (instead of Bryan Fenkart).

From the comfort of their all-night diner, the men, now in their early-twenties, confront the realities of adulthood: marriage, careers, money and the ever-mysterious opposite sex. But no matter where life takes them, they know they’re welcome back at the diner, the one place they’ll always belong.The tuner was initially Broadway-bound; this second engagement suggests Diner is once again aimed at the Great White Way.last_img read more

How often does your CEO meet with your IT director?

first_imgThe reason why I’m asking this question is because even as financial service businesses recognize the centrality that cybersecurity must play in their operations, a recent survey released by The Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) indicates that CEO’s remain resistant to having their Chief IT person report directly to them. In fact, according to the 2018 survey of Chief Information Security Officers, just 8% of all cybersecurity heads at financial service businesses report directly to the CEO.This is a real head scratcher to me since we’ve seen numerous examples, such as the breach of Equifax, of reputations destroyed and companies damaged as a result of cybersecurity mishaps. Reporting structures are not changing even as a majority of CISO’s report to their Board of Directors at least quarterly, sometimes more. Perhaps it’s time for Boards to emphasize base line technical knowledge as one of the attributes they look for in their top leadership. Not everyone needs to be Bill Gates but it is increasingly important for organizational leaders to know what questions to ask. continue reading » 9SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

The main focus of the NYC must be to provide true representation to youth of Dominica

first_imgLocalNews The main focus of the NYC must be to provide true representation to youth of Dominica by: – July 21, 2011 Share Tweet Mr. Jules Pascal, addressing the General Assembly of the National Youth Council on July 16th, 2011Jules Pascal, Chief Youth Development Officer told the General Assembly of the National Youth Council that their main purpose should be to provide true representation to our young people.“One of the key points of the National Youth Council is to be able representation, true representation to the young people out there in the country. I want to suggest that the executive must make a very serious effort at going out into the communities. Those of you that will be elected and selected to be on the executive you need to take this very seriously, because other than that it will be defeating the whole purpose” he said.According to Mr. Jules an indication of true leadership is whether there has been growth.“It is all well and good for leadership to exist but there needs to be growth. There is a very popular and common saying that there are three men that can be seen. The man whom we all see, the man who you are and the man who you want to be, and recognizing that the person who we all see, if this person is not the person who you are then you need to change the reality, change the perspective. And if the person that we all see is not the person whom you want to be certainly there is need for change,” Pascal said.Another key aspect of leadership which Mr. Pascal highlighted is the need for leadership to embrace and involve change.“I must say that this [change] is one of the key things in leadership. Leadership has to be involving and embracing change. Some of the things that the NYC may have planned seem to not have the level of success that they anticipated and therefore it calls for change. Maybe a change of approach, maybe a change of the links, maybe a change of the structure, maybe a change in the manner in which we do things.”Pascal also reminded them that the NYC “is supposed to be one of the leading youth organizations in the country, representing young people and therefore you need to strengthen and revitalize the district councils”Mr. Pascal noted that partnerships and relationships are essential for the growth and development of the National Youth Council is in the district councils.Dominica Vibes News Sharing is caring!center_img 11 Views   no discussions Share Sharelast_img read more

O’Shea scores in Ireland win

first_img Press Association But as so often in the past, Ireland were able to rely upon returning skipper Robbie Keane to get them out of trouble. The 33-year-old, who missed Friday night’s 3-0 Group C defeat in Germany with an ankle injury, converted a 16th-minute penalty for his 61st goal in the famous green shirt. However, it was O’Shea, whose last and only previous senior international strike came against Australia in 2003, who fired Ireland ahead from point-blank range as he pounced on keeper Andrey Sidelnikov’s 26th-minute error. Ireland dominated the second half and might have increased their lead on several occasions before the unfortunate Shomko turned substitute Aiden McGeady’s cross into his own goal. It all meant interim boss Noel King emerged from his two-game spell in charge with the win he craved, and with the approach he took largely vindicated. It was he who decided to call-up midfielder Andy Reid and striker Anthony Stokes, who had been discarded by Giovanni Trapattoni, to the squad with Reid in particular making the most of his first game for his country since November 2007. However, another of the men he invited back in from the cold, midfielder Darron Gibson, departed prematurely in far less auspicious circumstances after he collapsed in agony following a 35th-minute challenge and, in front of watching Everton manager Roberto Martinez, was carried from the field on a stretcher with suspected knee ligament damage. Ireland launched what had proved to be a disappointing game in Kazakhstan when they needed Keane and Kevin Doyle to get them out of jail at the death as they both struck inside the final two minutes to snatch a 2-1 victory from the jaws of a 1-0 defeat. The 32-year-old struck for just the second time in 93 appearances for his country as Ireland came from behind to beat Kazakhstan 3-1 at the Aviva Stadium and give themselves an excellent chance of being seeded among the second group for the Euro 2016 draw. Miroslav Beranek’s men had threatened to ruin the home side’s evening by taking a 13th-minute lead in spectacular style when Dmitriy Shomko lashed home an unstoppable shot from 25 yards. That evening should perhaps have served notice of the troubles ahead, and what they hoped would be a home game in which they would have a play-off place to either clinch or cement was effectively a dead rubber in World Cup terms. However, there were still Euro 2016 seeding matters and pride for which to play, and both were dented within 13 minutes. Kazakhstan had arrived with nothing to lose and still smarting from their late capitulation in Astana, and they set about their task with some relish. They got their reward when, after Seamus Coleman had made a mess of clearing his lines, Shomko ran on to the loose ball and smashed a left-foot shot across the helpless David Forde and inside the far post. However, the Kazakhs delirious celebrations were short-lived and Ireland were back in it within three minutes, and in predictable fashion. Defender Alexander Kislitsyn, claiming in vain for a push in the back, met Andy Reid’s free-kick with his hand inside the penalty area and Latvia referee Vadims Direktorenko wasted little time in pointing to the spot. Keane, whose goal in Kazakhstan had also come from 12 yards, expertly sent Sidelnikov the wrong way to restore parity, and a measure of calm was restored. There was slightly less inevitability about the way in which the home side got their noses in front with 26 minutes gone, however, when Sidelnikov, who had endured a less than convincing opening to the game, pushed Richard Dunne’s header straight to O’Shea, and he made no mistake from close range. Gibson’s premature departure eight minutes before the break cast a cloud over proceedings, but his team-mates could not afford to allow their focus to slip as they attempted to wrap up the points. Keane was at less than his clinical best when he sliced harmlessly wide within seconds of the restart after being allowed to connect with a long ball out of defence, but Ireland returned intent on building sustained pressure. Whelan and Stokes both went close as the Kazakhs found themselves pinned back deep inside their own half, and Sidelnikov was mightily relieved to see Reid’s speculative 64th-minute effort clear his cross bar as he scrambled back towards his line. But he was beaten again with 13 minutes remaining when Shomko could only help substitute Aiden McGeady’s cross into his own net under extreme pressure from Doyle and Keane. John O’Shea’s first international goal for 10 years helped Ireland end a disappointing World Cup qualifying campaign with a victory. last_img read more
