first_imgReading the lyrics to Alkaline trio’s latest album Good Mourning, not dissimilar to trawling through the cringe-worthy efforts of some fifeteen year-old trying to put blood’ ‘death’ ‘stab’ and ‘tears’ into all possible combinations. It’s stage we all go through, but a trait of modern punk bands is that long after these teen angst sensibilities have been relevant to their own lives, they find themselves pushing thirty and coming up with lyrics like I’ve got a needle scratching me, injects the poison of alcohol I.V.”. Either the band are functionally illiterate or any image that could evoke a feeling of goth-like inarticulacy is worth a shot. Pop-punk is tired. It needs more than unimaginative pseudo-poetry.ARCHIVE: 3rd Week TT 2003last_img read more

first_img Musical bound for A.R.T. recasts the six wives as girl-power pop stars Curtain coming down on the immersive, disco-insistent ‘Donkey Show’ after a decade-long run at A.R.T. Related It’s hard to let go of summer. A saving grace is that fall is so wonderful here, full of vivid color, sunny days, cool nights, apples, cranberries, pumpkins — and a bumper crop of culture. What follows is our opinionated picks for some of the best music, theater, art, and performance coming to the city this semester. You won’t even have to venture far from Harvard Square to attend many of these events and exhibits, but since it’s healthy to take a break from work or study, we’re sending you on a bit of field study as well.THEATEROne of this fall’s big events for both theater and music comes from a man who’s had a foot in both camps, the art-rock pioneer David Byrne. Last year Byrne mounted his “American Utopia” tour, in which the songs — many of them stemming from his creative heyday with Talking Heads — were enlivened with inventive staging and dance, something he’d previously explored in collaborations with choreographer Twyla Tharp and in the Heads’ landmark concert movie, “Stop Making Sense.” The tour was so well received that it’s going to Broadway this fall, but it will first make a stop at the Emerson Colonial Theatre from Sept. 11-28. Someone at the Colonial is enough of a fan to bill this as a “once in a lifetime event” — of course borrowing the title of a Talking Heads classic that Byrne will be performing.,Theater also meets pop culture in “The Purists,” the latest in the post-Hamilton trend of hip-hop musicals. Directed by Billy Porter of “Kinky Boots” fame, and written by locally-based Huntington Theatre Company playwright Dan McCabe, the show begins with a rap battle between two female DJs. Unexpected utterances are aired,  and the main characters, which include a retired rapper and a “show-tunes-loving telesales director,” wind up taking hard looks at who they are and what holds them together. The Broadway-bound show runs through Oct. 6 at Calderwood Pavilion.,Highly unlikely musicals seem to be the running theme at the American Repertory Theater this season. Nobody could have predicted that a rapping, dancing, sexed-up version of tale of the six wives of Henry VIII (beheadings and all) would be one of this year’s theatrical hits. But Toby Marlow and Lucy Ross’s “Six,” which continues its run through Sept. 29 at the Loeb Drama Center, has indeed pulled off the trick of turning this dark history into a celebration of “21st century girl power,” as they’ve put it. Another likely eyebrow-raiser is due Dec. 3, with the world premiere of composer/lyricist Dave Malloy’s adaptation of Melville’s classic “Moby-Dick,” in which the hunt for the great white creature becomes the occasion for songs including “The Whale As a Dish” and “A Squeeze of the Hand.”,Just off Harvard Square, the Oberon has carved a niche as the A.R.T.’s punky kid sister of a theater, with a reputation for daring cabaret-type shows. That tradition continues this fall when the Oberon presents “Black Light,” a one-woman show by Jomama Jones — the international soul diva whose hit-making R&B career suffered when she became a political exile from the U.S. during the ‘80s. If you’ve never heard of Jones, that’s because she’s actually the alter-ego of writer/performer Daniel Alexander Jones, whose one-character show interweaves original songs (inspired by the likes of Prince and Tina Turner) with monologues that explore cultural, spiritual and gender issues.,If you’ve ever seen a Kevin Smith movie (his biggest hits were 1994’s “Clerks” and 1997’s “Chasing Amy”), you know that the usual highlight is the appearance of profound stoners Jay and Silent Bob, who usually put the whole thing in perspective with a few well-chosen wisecracks. The pair recently got their second film of their own — Smith’s “Jay & Silent Bob Reboot,” due for imminent release — and the “road show” comes to the Wilbur Theater on Nov. 8, with Jason Mewes and Smith reprising their roles as Jay and Bob. A week later on Nov. 15, the Wilbur has another monologist of note, Al Franken. He should have plenty to say about his time in the U.S. Senate and as one of the best things that ever happened to “Saturday Night Live.”MUSICOn the rock ‘n’roll front, two of America’s most-adored bands are coming to Boston in October.  As far as many critics are concerned Sleater-Kinney have inherited the Clash’s mantle of “the only band that matters,” being fiercely topical and punk-rock exhilarating at once. Their new album, “The Center Can’t Hold,” has polarized some fans (there are, gasp, synthesizers all over it), but it’s still full of the hard-hitting lyrics you’d expect feminists from Olympia, Wash., to write in the Trump era. The band (which includes Carrie Brownstein of the satirical TV comedy “Portlandia”) should be worth a trip to the House of Blues — granted, one of Boston’s least comfortable venues — on Oct. 29.Wilco, the band led by Chicago native Jeff Tweedy, was formed in 1994 as part of the back-to-roots Americana movement, but it has since branched off and now performs any kind of song Tweedy cares to write, whether it’s deeply personal or fascinatingly abstract (and the group’s guitarist, Nels Cline, is guaranteed to make your jaw drop). Over the summer Wilco hosted its Solid Sound festival in North Adams, and now it’s back to play at the Boch Center Wang Theatre on Oct. 10 and 11. Before leaving the rock world, we’ll point out that relative youngster Jenny Lewis is a brilliant songwriter who can break your heart with a love song or hook you in with a character sketch — just ask Beck and Elvis Costello who’ve worked with her. She too is at the House of Blues on Oct. 25.,Rhiannon Giddens is currently one of the bright young lights in roots music. As the frontwoman of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, she made old-time string-band music fresh and even fashionable again. But her musical explorations haven’t ended there, and she’s now touring with Francesco Turrisi, an Italian musician who plays exotic things like a one-stringed piano and a Tunisian frame drum. Their Sanders Theatre concert Oct. 3 will bring together some of the music they’ve been investigating, from Africa and the Middle East to the Americas. Count on Giddens to make you love all of it.The stately halls of Sanders will also host the usual array of classical music this fall; as the Boston Chamber Music Society begins its monthly Sunday concerts on Sept. 22 with a Haydn/Shostakovich/Mozart program. The group will return Oct. 20 for a Clara Schumann/Harbison/Brahms program, and on Nov. 17 to do Schubert, Dutilleux and Elgar.Godfrey Reggio’s 1982 film “Koyaanisquatsi” was a cultural moment, one of those rare occasions where a mind-expanding and avant-garde piece of art became a commercial success. Among other things it made a star out of the minimalist composer Philip Glass, who will revisit the music live with his Ensemble at the Orpheum Theatre on Sept. 20 to accompany a screening of the film. Glass and Reggio will also be interviewed the night before by Harvard Film Archive director Haden Guest. It’s at the CityScape space at WBUR’s Allston studio; tickets for the radio taping can be purchased in advance.,ARTWomen artists will get some overdue spotlight at the Museum of Fine Arts, where “Women Take the Floor” opens Sept. 13 and runs through May 3 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage. The central space, “Women Depicting Women: Her Vision, Her Voice,” includes celebrated paintings from the MFA’s collection including works by Frida Kahlo and Alice Neel. Satellite exhibits will look at women’s contribution to 1920s and 1930s art and design; early female entrepreneurs in the print world; and abstract art from the 1950s. And two other sections bring some overlooked work to light: “Beyond the Loom” focuses on 1970s fiber artists who redefined textile work as sculpture; while “Subversive Threads” looks at more contemporary artists who’ve used textile work to examine political and gender identities.The Harvard Art Museums have exhibitions on Winslow Homer’s seminal work concerning the Civil War, on what it means to be displaced from homes and cultures, and on critical printing techniques.,Another woman artist of note, Yayoi Kusama will be displaying one of her unique “infinity rooms” at the Institute of Contemporary Art through Feb 7. Arriving in New York City from Japan in 1957, Kusama absorbed the imagery of psychedelia and pop art. Created in 2013, “Love is Calling” is an installation that vaguely resembles the inside of a lava lamp, full of brightly-colored, tentacled figures; it’s accompanied by a recording of the artist reciting a Japanese love poem. A separate exhibit, “Beyond Infinity: Contemporary Art After Kusama” will spotlight artists who’ve built on her kaleidoscopic visions.

first_img“We are fully confident the team and his temporary replacement, Christophe Girondel, will be able to maintain and expand Nordea’s solid position within asset management.”Girondel, a French national, has been in his current role as head of institutional and wholesale distribution since 2014 and has been working at Nordea for 12 years.Kjærsgaard Nielsen said the company wished Hyldahl the best of luck with his future challenges at ATP.“Christian Hyldahl has been a major driver behind the good results performance of Nordea Asset Management, and we are grateful for his efforts at Nordea over the past 27 years,” he said.

first_imgMeanwhile, government officialsat all levels are working to halt transmission of the virus. “It’s funny, it was a similarsituation with the SARS virus,” noted Ted Friedli, owner of Excel Travel in LongBranch. One client who contacted himwith concerns about the virus has plans to travel to China in 2022. Like other health care professionals in the state, Bayshore is relying on updates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the New Jersey Department of Public Health to advise its customers. So, what can people do to avoidcontracting NcoV? “There could be so many morediseases between now and then,” he said. Friedli advised him to remaincalm and wait things out. Travel to China and the FarEast has grown increasingly popular in recent years, Friedli said. The best defense is prevention,health experts say: Wash your hands after coughing or sneezing, use a tissueor, in a pinch, your sleeve to cough or sneeze into rather than your hands. Tryto avoid touching your face. The majority of the calls fall into the category of, “Am I at risk?” he said. That includes people who have recently traveled to or from China, people planning to travel there individually or as members of international exchange programs, and people who have returned from China with children who will be re-entering school in New Jersey. Those cases have been confirmedin Washington, California, Arizona and Illinois, the CDC reported. With the height of the flu season upon us, business at Bayshore Pharmacy in Atlantic Highlands has been brisk. Meanwhile, New JerseyCongressman Frank Pallone (D-6), who chairs the House of Representatives Energyand Commerce Committee, which oversees public health and quarantine, isadvising Americans to rely on the CDC and other reliable sources for updatesrather than social media. “The information that I have right now is that weshouldn’t panic,” he said during an appearance on MSNBC last Tuesday. “There’sa lot of misinformation out there.” “At this time, there are more than 6,000 confirmed cases. The majority of the cases are in China, which has experienced at least 132 deaths. There are 92 confirmed cases outside of China, with five cases in the United States.” While those numbers appear alarming, it helps to keep in mind that more than 11 million people reside in the epicenter of the virus outbreak in the city of Wuhan. British Airways and a fewsmaller airlines have suspended all flights to China and United Airlines hasreduced its service there. The sneezing and coughing most peopleare doing around the Two River area these days are not caused by NcoV but insteadrelated to the perennial winter woes that come with the common cold and flu. The pharmacy did experience a bit of a run on face masks this week but, Stryker said, their effectiveness in blocking an individual from contracting the virus isn’t great because the masks aren’t capable of preventing the inhalation of the virus. They’re more valuable in preventing someone who is already sick from spreading germs through sneezing and coughing. Earlier this week, U.S. Sens.Bob Menendez and Cory Booker of New Jersey called for NcoV passenger screeningsto be instituted at Newark Liberty International Airport, the fifth busiest airportin the nation. To combat a wave of misinformation being generated as the word spreads, the New Jersey Department of Health has established a hotline in cooperation with the NJ Poison Control Center to answer residents’ questions about the new virus and allay unnecessary fears. “The biggest concern right nowis that we don’t really know what this coronavirus is…we need to know moreabout the virus itself, how it’s transmitted, what is its impact and there’snot a lot of information out there right now.” Those with upcomingreservations who are facing a change of plan and a possible loss of theirvacation dollars, Friedli said, have the option to cancel, postpone or changetheir plans and some travel providers will be generous in helping them make thebest choice with the least amount of financial pain. But, Friedli said, “Thebiggest lesson is to do something in advance: Take out some travel insurance.There are policies you can buy that allow you to cancel for any reasonwhatsoever.” “We’ve been getting quite a fewquestions,” Stryker said. “The news has it pretty whipped up.” “Media and the government blowthese things out of proportion,” Friedli says. “There’s so many other thingsthat we could worry about, like getting hit by a car on the Garden StateParkway.” According to Jerry M. Zuckerman, M.D., vice president of infection prevention and control at Hackensack Meridian Health, coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which are thought to cause up to 30 percent of common cold cases. Hackensack Meridian encompasses nine medical centers around the state, including Riverview in Red Bank and Bayshore in Holmdel. But along with the chills,fever, coughs and runny noses that accompany the flu, some customers are sufferingfrom worries about contracting the novel coronavirus (NcoV), said pharmacistRichard Stryker. Symptoms of NcoV are similar to the flu but can swiftlyprogress to more serious complications like pneumonia. Newark has since been added tothe list of airports conducting enhanced screenings. While the risk of contractingthe NcoV virus here in the U.S. is low, the threat remains serious, Zuckermanstressed. “Although the risk to thepublic remains low, we understand that residents have questions about this newvirus,” New Jersey Department of Health commissioner Judith Persichilli notedin a press release. “This hotline provides factual information to alleviatefear and dispel rumors.” The hotline is part of a wide-reaching effort by the medical and scientific communities to reassure the public while taking steps to identify and treat any patients who contract NcoV. In an effort to halt thetransmission of the virus, Chinese officials have instituted a quarantine inWuhan, the epicenter of the virus. For Americans set to travel toChina soon for business or vacation, the threat of NcoV very likely means achange in plans. By Eileen Moon | Published Jan. 30, 2020 “Certain strains like SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome), whichappeared in 2002, and MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome), which appearedin 2012 and now the 2019 novel coronavirus can cause more serious illness,”Zuckerman said. No cases of NcoV have been identified in any of Hackensack Meridian’sfacilities, Zuckerman said. Bruce Ruck, managing director of the NJ Poison Control Center at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, said that his office has received more than 100 calls about the corona virus in the last 24 hours. Nevertheless, concern aboutcontracting the new virus is rising. The five cases of NcoVidentified in the United States as of Jan. 29 have occurred in patients who hadrecently been in China. Fortunately, the risk ofcontracting the new virus first identified in Wuhan, China in December is low. In Monmouth County, FreeholderDeputy Director Sue Kiley, liaison to the county health and human servicesdepartment, said the county is maintaining close contact with area hospitalsand is prepared to respond should the virus appear. Right now, Kiley said, it’snot an issue. “Obviously, we’re watching it very closely.” Nevertheless, the appearance ofNcoV in our increasingly global community has been ramping up fears on socialmedia. “Basically, all those things your mother told you,” said Stryker, the pharmacist.last_img read more

first_imgAWESOME AGAIN IS ONE OF FIVE BREEDERS’ CUP ‘WIN & YOU’RE IN’ CHALLENGE RACES ARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 1, 2016)–Superstar California Chrome was sensational yet again at Santa Anita on Saturday, taking the Grade I, $300,000 Awesome Again Stakes in gate to wire fashion by 2 ¼ lengths over rival Dortmund, who pressured him early. Ridden by Victor Espinoza and trained by Art Sherman, California Chrome covered 1 1/8 miles while geared down in 1:48.07, and thus served notice to the world that at age five, he is the horse to beat in the $6 million Breeders’ Cup Classic at The Great Race Place on Nov. 5.Breaking from the rail, the California-bred son of Lucky Pulpit was hustled out of the gate as Dortmund, adding blinkers and to his immediate outside, was sent as well by Rafael Bejarano. The pair were separated by a neck into and around the Club House turn and Espinoza with a look to his outside, stepped on the gas at the 4 ½ furlong pole and the Awesome Again, was for all intents and purposes, over.“Dortmund wasn’t a threat today,” said Espinoza. “Maybe after the first quarter mile, but after that, I just kept pulling away, which only helped me get some breathing room between us and the rest of the field. It’s tough when I get the one-hole and want to try and do something crazy…I ran the first part fast, yes, but then eased up on him. I didn’t want to overuse him today, we’ve got a big race coming up. It seemed like he was doing everything today very easily. Hopefully he’ll run big in the Breeders’ Cup.”The overwhelming 2-5 favorite in a field of five 3-year-olds and up, California Chrome, North America’s all-time leading money earner, paid $2.80, $2.10 and $2.10. (There was $779,170 bet to show on him, the lion’s share of the total show pool of $862,455).Fresh off a five length win (from the rail) in the Grade I Pacific Classic at Del Mar on Aug. 20, “Chrome” notched his sixth consecutive win and improved his overall mark to 24-15-3-1. Owned by Perry Martin and Taylor Made Stallions’ California Chrome, LLC, he picked up $180,000 for the win, increasing his record bankroll to $13,432,650.“I can’t say enough about the ride–it was just perfect,” said Sherman, 79, himself a former jockey. “We have a great staff with the groom and the hot walkers, Dihiji (Gladney), who rides him in the mornings and my son (Alan) who lives with him. I’m just really blessed.“When he gets in front, he’s a hard horse to get by, and I knew he’d wear Dortmund down with the fractions the way they were. He took his game plan away from him. (Dortmund ) tried and ran a hell of a race, but you’re looking at maybe the best horse in the world right now. I can’t say enough about (California Chrome).“I’m looking forward to the Breeders’ Cup Classic and I hope everything goes according to plan. Each race seems a little bit better. It’s a little scary. It’s a dream come true. I never had the ability to buy the most expensive horses…Maybe it was just my time to shine. I’m enjoying it and I’ll enjoy seeing his babies years from now.”Dortmund, winner of the 2015 Santa Anita Derby and trained by Bob Baffert, kept to his task throughout and finished 4 ½ lengths in front of longshot Win the Space. Off at 8-5, Dortmund paid $2.20 and $2.10.“Second best, no excuses,” said Bejarano. “The winner had a lot of pressure on him and that was the only chance I had. My horse ran good, just second best.”Ridden by Gary Stevens, Win the Space was third throughout and finished 4 ¼ lengths clear of Hard Aces. Off at 26-1, he paid $2.80 to show.With the win, California Chrome earned a fees-paid berth in the Breeders’ Cup Classic.Fractions on the race were 22.76, 46.08, 1:09.28 and 1:34.45.last_img read more
