Meet the Newbies! 5 Tony-Nominated Fresh Faces You Need to Know

first_img Mary Bridget Davies, A Night with Janis Joplin Davies has been wailing Janis Joplin tunes since appearing in a touring production of Love Janis in 2005, and her soulful take on the music legend’s hits finally paved the way to Broadway in 2014. Before hitting it big on Broadway, she loaded trucks for UPS and studied improv at Second City. When she’s not singing the blues in her living room with her two dogs, Davies loves spending quality time with her “boyfriend, Netflix and popcorn.” Lauren Worsham, A Gentleman’s Guide She plays a classy (and OK, a little weird) ingenue in A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder, but in real life, Worsham isn’t quite so dignified—she can stick her tongue in her nose and she has a tattoo of the Lone Star State on her rear end! Plus, this renaissance woman has a “backup” degree in Spanish literature and a rock band with her husband, composer Kyle Jarrow, called Sky-Pony. Sarah Greene, The Cripple of Inishmaan Direct from the West End by way of Cork, Ireland, Inishmaan’s Sarah Greene gets to taunt, tease and (spoiler alert!) eventually fall for co-star Daniel Radcliffe in the dark comedy by Martin McDonagh. Although she’s sworn off eggs after hurling so many onstage, Greene has officially been bitten by the Broadway bug—she’s hoping for an extended stay in New York City. Bonus secret talent: She can light cigarettes with her toes! Paul Chahidi Nick Cordero, Bullets Over Broadway After stints in Rock of Ages, The Toxic Avenger and a real-life rock band called Lovemethod, Bullets standout Nick Cordero never thought he’d be a tap-dancing gangster. In fact, he almost gave up his Broadway dreams for good to become a real estate agent. But now that he’s a Tony-nominated star, he has other plans. “I hope to have a continued relationship with real estate,” he told Broadway.com with a laugh. For a Broadway newcomer, just getting the chance to perform on the Great White Way is a huge thrill—but these five new stars not only nabbed the role of a lifetime this season, they also received Tony nominations for their stellar breakout performances. Broadway.com photo editor Caitlin McNaney hit the town with Bullets Over Broadway star Nick Cordero, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder’s Lauren Worsham, The Cripple of Inishmaan standout Sarah Greene, Twelfth Night player Paul Chahidi and A Night with Janis Joplin headliner Mary Bridget Davies. Check out our cheat sheet on these fabulous first-time nominees!center_img View Comments Star Files Paul Chahidi, Twelfth Night The 44-year-old Twelfth Night standout is getting lots of attention for his gender-bending turn as witty maid Maria, but he first performed in drag at the age of 13. “I never played a woman again until Maria,” he told Broadway.com. “I don’t want people to think that’s all I do!” The Oxford native is having a blast in New York with his wife Kate and son George (no, not the royal ones), and they love hanging out in the Central Park Zoo and at the Bronx Botanical Garden.

Javelin Upsets Early Man Timeline

first_img(Visited 48 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 A well-crafted spear point for a javelin is dated way too early for the current evolutionary timeline.National Geographic announced the find in Ethiopia with a picture of a nicely carved spear point dated at 280,000 years in the evolutionary scheme.  That’s 200,000 years older than the date they were thought to first be made by modern humans.  According to the standard story, modern humans were not even around that long ago.These javelins are some 200,000 years older than previous examples of similar weapons, suggesting that modern humans and their extinct relatives had the know-how to create these sorts of complex thrown projectiles much earlier than often thought….The oldest artifacts at the site are roughly 279,000 years old. In comparison, the earliest known fossils of Homo sapiens, previously discovered at sites elsewhere in Ethiopia, are about 200,000 years old.The spear point shown is not an isolated artifact.  The research team from UC Berkeley found 141 such implements.  Human ancestors of that age were only thought to be capable of thrusting and clubbing.  By analyzing cracks in the obsidian, researchers were able to infer that the spear points  were thrown at the maximum speed possible.  “Such weapons are considered signs of complex behavior and were pivotal to the spread of modern humans.”To rescue the evolutionary story, paleoanthropologists are having to posit that “certain behavioral traits that are considered complex and mostly only the domains of anatomically modern humans—such as the capacity to make and use projectiles … had earlier roots and were present in populations ancestral to Homo sapiens.”  Yet this pushes the evolution of complex brains able to design, make, test and use these weapons effectively further back as well – leaving little more for evolution to do for nearly 300,000 years.  If these people were that smart, what kept them from getting civilized for so long?Evolutionists are wondering who the designers were – Homo heidelbergensis, perhaps?  Onlooker John Shea suggested the technology might go even farther back.  “This is just the oldest example we have so far of this technology—it doesn’t mean that this is where it first evolved.”  There’s a conundrum: the evolution of intelligent design.Paleoanthropology has more falsifications than you can shake a spear at.  Next they’ll be discovering the Heidelberg Man version of Shakespeare.  That will be the new script: baby pigs evolved into Hamlet.  They should be shuddering at this midsummer dream’s nightmare.  (It is midsummer in Africa, you know, but a winter’s tale up north.)  Instead, they think all’s well that ends badly, and any criticisms are much ado about nothing.  But what could be king-lear than admitting you’re wrong?  As you like it, they’d rather engage in the shaming of the true than admit their comedy of errors.  A tempest in a teapot, they respond dismissively, as if sneezing off their critics.  But to sneeze or not to sneeze, that is congestion.  Having taken our pound of flesh, measure for measure, we’ll require no further pun-itive damages.  Happy Thanksgiving, Americans!  Go comet-watching this weekend.  Is there ice on ISON?last_img read more

Govt pushes use of all official languages

first_img8 August 2012 The South African government took a step towards promoting the equitable use of the country’s 11 official languages when Arts and Culture Minister Paul Mashatile tabled the Use of Official Languages Bill in Parliament in Cape Town on Tuesday. The Bill was approved without dissent and will now go to the National Council of Provinces for concurrence. It is aimed at ensuring that the government elevates the status of indigenous languages, in particular, and promotes their use. The Bill will also make a contribution towards the national effort to promote multilingualism. “This Bill is not aimed at diminishing the significance and use of any of the South African official languages. Through this Bill, we will promote equitable use of all official languages,” Mashatile said. “In the long run, we will endeavor to equally promote the use of sign language.” It also means South Africans will have an opportunity to use the official languages of their choice in interacting with government. “This, we believe, will strengthen efforts to ensure equal access to government services and programmes and contribute to the goal of building an empowered citizenry,” he said. “Specifically, this Bill seeks to provide for the regulation and monitoring of the use of official languages by national government and public entities for official purposes.”Establishing national language units Mashatile added that it provides for the establishment of a national language unit. The unit will advise the Arts and Culture Minister on the policy and strategy to regulate and monitor the use of official languages. It also provides for the establishment of language units in every national department, public entity and national public enterprise to advise the national department on the development, adoption, and implementation and monitoring of its language policy. He said that through the Bill, government was giving effect to the provisions of Section 6 of the Constitution, which not only identifies 11 official languages but also obliges the state to take practical and positive measures to elevate the status and advance the use of indigenous languages. In terms of the Bill, language policies by national departments should identify at least three official languages to be used for official purposes. When identifying these three official languages, departments must take into account its Constitutional obligation to take practical steps to elevate the status and advance the use of indigenous languages whose historic use and status was diminished. The Arts and Culture Minister will be required to annually table a report to Parliament on the use of official languages for the provision of government services.

10 months agoLiverpool boss Klopp’s Christmas Message: Why these players so special

first_imgLiverpool boss Klopp’s Christmas Message: Why these players so specialby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has paid tribute to his players in his Christmas Day message.Klopp says a key to their success so far this season is the ability of his team to ignore “the noise” of the media and press.He told Liverpoolfc.com: “This is my fourth Christmas as the manager of this incredible football club and although I am not the kind of guy to allow myself to look backwards, I think it is fair to say we have had an incredible ride in 2018 with some real highs and a couple of disappointments.”That’s what gives me the confidence and belief there is more to come from these boys in 2019, that there is more to come from this journey we are all involved in.”We can – and should – all be proud of what the team have done so far this season, but this is only the beginning and there is still such a long way to go, both this season and in terms of what this group of players can achieve.”The best thing about these boys, and what has helped us have such a good start to the season, is they do not listen to the noise; they are 100 per cent every single day in training and every single matchday. We know when we say ‘one game at a time’ some people might consider it football talk, but that really is the way for us. It is the philosophy that has got us to where we are currently.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
