Jonathan Groff Jonathan Groff has reclaimed the crown from Andrew Rannells at the Richard Rodgers Theatre, giving King George a Beatlemania makeover in Hamilton. The Tony nominee recently sat down with Charlie Rose to talk about the Broadway megahit, saying “I have not gotten sick of it. I’ve done it over 100 times…It’s like a drug coming out there every night.” Because of his relatively little (though memorable) stage time, Groff confessed to sneaking into the house during the off-Broadway run at the Public Theater: “I couldn’t not watch. I couldn’t not leave the stage and watch the show. It had this explosive energy.” And what, according to Groffsauce, makes the show so wonderful? “It is so naughty!” Hmm, naughtier than dick socks and anal covers?

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Solar Industry Magazine:The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) is asking for public input on a review of the potential environmental and socioeconomic impacts of closing the Bull Run and Paradise coal plants.Bull Run, located in Anderson County, Tenn., is a single-generator, coal-fired power plant. Paradise, located near Drakesboro, Ky., has one coal-fired generator still operating, Unit 3. Two other coal-fired units at Paradise were retired when a new natural gas plant began operating at the site in 2017, says TVA.In August, TVA announced a review of generating assets, focusing on Bull Run and Paradise, based on the future cost of maintenance and environmental compliance and other factors. TVA says it must continually evaluate its fleet to ensure flexibility and financial responsibility.TVA has now prepared separate environmental assessments (EAs), one for Bull Run and another for Paradise, to look at the site-specific impacts of the potential retirement of each site. The assessments are required under the National Environmental Policy Act and will be part of the information used to inform the TVA board early next year before a decision is made whether to retire either of the units.According to the Sierra Club, TVA derived more than 60% of its electricity from coal a decade ago, but by 2020, that number is expected to shrink to about 18%.More: TVA seeks input on potential coal plant closures TVA moves closer to shuttering Bull Run, Paradise coal plants
It’s easy to lose sight of the havoc that climate change is wreaking on the natural world, but this sobering video from Conservation Hawks, featuring famed fly fisherman and Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard, puts it right back into perspective. The science is there. The climate is getting warmer every year, ushering in extreme storms across the nation and unseasonable wildfires out West and now, right in our own corner of Appalachia.These events, coupled with sky rocketing average temps are having an adverse effects on trout habitat. Unless immediate action is taken by our government, governments around the world, and ordinary citizens like you and me, it will only continue to get worse. If you enjoy spending time outdoors, whether you’re mountain biking, fly fishing, or rock climbing, you have a huge stake in the game, and the stakes have never been higher.Want to see more videos like this?

Hundreds of Brazilian police and soldiers backed by helicopters and armored vehicles swept in on 19 June to take over a crime-ridden Rio slum as part of a pacification plan ahead of the football World Cup in 2014. More than 100 marines and 160 elite police officers took part in the operation in the hillside Mangueira neighborhood, which went off without a shot being fired, a police spokesman said. Mangueira is located near Rio’s famed Macarana football stadium, and is home to more than a million people as well as one of the city’s oldest samba schools. The pre-announced operation began just after dawn with armored personnel carriers thundering up the slum’s steep roads and helicopters clattering overhead, as security forces on foot followed with arms at the ready. An hour and a half later, two of the vehicles reached the highest point of the slum. The forces met no resistance. Drug gangs which had been controlling the district had fled well in advance. The operation was the final link in a “security perimeter” authorities have set up around Maracana stadium, which will play host to the World Cup final, to be watched by more than 700 million television viewers around the world. It will also be a venue for sports featuring in the 2016 Olympic Games, which Rio will also host. Rio authorities have in the past three years been pushing steadily into several slums to stamp out nests of crime and violence ahead of the two big sporting events. Unlike in previous years, when the police raided the neighborhoods only to exit soon after, leaving a vacuum quickly filled by returning gangs, now they are setting up local posts in the slums to maintain control. US President Barack Obama highlighted the success of the pacification operations during a March visit to one of Rio’s best-known slums, City of God. To date, more than 20 slums have been cleared of criminal gangs. By Dialogo June 21, 2011
by: Jay IsaacsonRecent lawsuits stemming from high-profile data breaches have no doubt spurred a fair number of discussions in credit union board rooms about cyber breach activity and potential insurance needs. In reviewing your credit union’s coverages, keep in mind that the defense of lawsuits—although they dominate the headlines—may not be your greatest expense if you experience a breach.Cyber breaches can generate considerable expenses outside of litigation. Insurance can be part of the solution and should complement your credit union’s incident response plan. Fortunately, cyber insurance solutions are readily available today.Understanding liability exposureSome insurers have packaged certain cyber liability coverages within management and professional liability policies. If your credit union has this type of coverage, make sure to review the coverage limits and determine whether they’re part of an aggregate limit that includes other types of liability coverage, such as management liability. A liability loss could exhaust your policy aggregate limits and leave you without the cyber protection you thought you had purchased. According to the Ponemon Institute, the average cost of a data breach is $3.5 million1. If it’s bundled under an aggregate limit you may be on the hook for any other liability losses you experience.Other questions you should ask: Are security breach expenses, such as the cost of conducting a forensic investigation of a breach, covered? If so, what types of expenses are included? Do you have access to breach response experts that can help you assess your exposure and walk you through all the steps needed to manage risks and quickly recover?A stand-alone cyber liability policy may offer more robust options as they generally provide expanded coverage that goes beyond just basic security breach liability coverage. It also ensures that the limit is solely dedicated to cyber liability claims continue reading » 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

Designing products, services, solutions, or causes that meet the demands of an emerging market. It’s no longer enough just to market products, especially products nobody wants in the first place. Marketers must help in the actual design and user experience, based on their understanding of people’s emotions. This spills into…2. Reshaping or reengineering an existing product, service, solution, or cause so that it meets the demands of customers unsatisfied by current offerings. Many companies give up on customers who don’t like their products. But that attitude could stunt your sustained growth and put you out of business. Sometimes this means blowing up your old products (PowerPoint) for new ones (Sway) that fit the new norm. You do this via… continue reading »

Singh also allegedly paid for the official and a relative to fly to Asia, hotel and transportation expenses included, plus he made monthly payments for the official’s leased BMW, according to investigators.The Internal Revenue Service alleged that Singh additionally under-reported his annual revenue and the wages he paid his workers by a total of $17 million, effectively hiding how much he owed in taxes in 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2014, prosecutors said.Singh also fraudulently obtained $950,000 in disaster relief funds from the Federal Emergency Management Agency between 2012 and this year by inflating the amount of damage incurred to The Water’s Edge, a restaurant he owns in New York City, authorities said.Lastly, when investigators executed a search warrant last year, Singh allegedly told FBI agents that he didn’t have a key to a safe that contained $175,000 in diverted Tobay revenue, which he later asked others to hold for him, prosecutors said.If convicted, Singh faces up to 30 years in prison. He will be arraigned Wednesday before U.S. Judge A. Kathleen Tomlinson at Central Islip federal court.

“I think it will be difficult for Madrid to get him. The president of PSG is a person who wants to win, I know them well and they will fight tooth and nail to keep Mbappe.” Former Arsenal coach Unai Emery also thinks Mbappe should swap Parc des Princes for the Bernabeu. The Spaniard believes the World Cup winner has the talent to create a spectacular period at Madrid, if he decided to make the move. “Of course he has the ability to mark an era in Madrid,” former Arsenal coach Emery told AS. “Which league would I advise him to play in? When I was in France, I loved watching him play and I was happy to be able to see it first hand. “When I went to England, I would have liked him to have seen him play in the Premier League. And if I return to Spain, I hope he comes to La Liga. “I’m sure there will be some things about being at PSG that will give him what he needs and maybe other things that won’t. And perhaps Real Madrid might be able to offer him some of the things that he is lacking at PSG.
