Lessons of the Week! Betty Buckley, James Monroe Iglehart & More

first_img Happy Friday! Whatever your wild weekend plans might be, we hope they involve watching this while drinking this. It’s been a crazy week on the Great White Way, from some Fun Broadway name checks at the Grammys to Betty Buckley introducing us to our new favorite Australian. Check it all out below with Lesson of the Week!Betty Buckley Should Be Our MatchmakerShe can win a Tony for belting an E flat while in a cat suit. She can shove Olivier nominees under pianos. This week, we learned of another potential accolade on Betty Buckley’s résumé: Broadway matchmaker. While in Sydney for the Defying Gravity concert, Buckley posed with Aussie hunk David Harris. Our reaction is not unlike hers. Why don’t you visit us sometime, Betty Lynn? Bring your friend.Kate Reinders Is Into Some Heavy StuffWhen Something Rotten! favorite Kate Reinders stopped by for #LiveatFive, she pointed out that 2016 marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, and that there should be a zombie ritual in the Bard’s honor. She took it a step further and suggested she visit his grave while wearing a cape—presumably to exhume his corpse, or something. What if we just put zombie makeup on Christian Borle? That’d probably cost less and also would be less terrifying.Jeanine Tesori Is Grammy FamousHamilton blew us all away at the Grammys, and shortly after sharing their opening number with America, the show won Best Musical Theater Album. True to his brand, Lin-Manuel Miranda rapped his acceptance speech. We haven’t done the full extensive research, but we’re pretty sure no one has rapped Jeanine Tesori’s name on a nationally broadcast Grammys acceptance speech before. Yet another first for Hamilton!Marin’s Bringing Out the Hoop Skirt AgainWe’re thrilled for Marin Mazzie, who after revealing last month that she’s in remission following her battle with cancer, announced she’s coming back to Broadway in The King and I. We suspect she’ll have no trouble “getting to know” those ornate costumes, as Mazzie is at one with the hoop skirt after Passion and Kiss Me Kate. The thought of her floating in those gowns while singing Rodgers and Hammerstein is—all together now—A-Marin-Mazing.Adam Kantor Is an Expert Edamame FeederFiddler on the Roof’s Alix Korey has said that Burstein’s face belongs in the dictionary next to “Mensch,” but what about the castmate who feeds you edamame? Because that’s what you get when you’re in a show with Adam Kantor. As they explain in Motel Citizen, the two go way back, as Korey taught Kantor during an NYU Tisch summer program. Years later, they’ve reunited on Broadway, and that’s cause for a “L’chaim.” And edamame.There’s Too Much Sugar at the NederlanderIn the first episode of Help!, Jennifer Simard gave us a glimpse of backstage life at Disaster!. The Nederlander Theatre was a Valentine’s Day wonderland thanks to Kerry Butler. Think paper hearts, balloons and candy. Like, unhealthy amounts of candy. We’re impressed with the cast’s self control and the lack of reports of sugar-fueled outbursts from 41st Street. If you happen to have any surplus peanut butter cups, Jennifer, please include them with your footage for the next episode.Carmen Cusack Will Sing for ChocolateAfter appearing in shows all around the world, Carmen Cusack is finally making her Broadway debut in Bright Star this spring. Still, we can’t help but wonder if she would have been here sooner had we offered her chocolate. Cusack revealed that as a child, she would sing at church only if her pastor gave her first pick of the candy stash. Hey, Carmen, we hear there’s chocolate over at the Nederlander.Iglehart Was a Growling YoungsterSpeaking of singing at church, James Monroe Iglehart developed his smoky voice singing about bullfrogs and butterflies in choir. The Aladdin Tony winner explained to Susan Blackwell that as a kid, he was inspired by the voice of a fellow churchgoer, who was in turn inspired by the signature growls of Reverend James Cleveland. We suppose we have Cleveland—and the aforementioned church goer—to thank for this.Jessica Hecht Is a Fiddler Fanfic WriterWhen she’s not singing opposite Danny Burstein in Fiddler, Jessica Hecht enjoys some Bock and Harnick retcon. Hecht, who plays Golde in the current revival, explained her surprisingly specific theory for what happens to youngest daughters Shprintze and Bielke: they grow up and eventually start Loehmann’s. Perhaps Hecht is just the person to write that long-awaited Fiddler sequel: Designers In the Bronx.We Can Write “Breaks Penis” in EmojiWe’ve been recapping this season of Younger (partially) in emoji, so for those of you wondering how to say, “Miriam Shor broke someone’s penis” in emoji, we’ve got you covered. And not only did her character Diana break his penis—she broke his penis while wearing one of her famed statement necklaces. Let’s see fellow statement necklace connoisseur Christine Baranski do that on The Good Wife.

Cambodia’s state-run utility negotiating to build country’s first wind farm

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Khmer Times:A leading Southeast Asia energy firm’s plans to create the Kingdom’s first wind turbine farm are one step closer to being realised.Singapore-based The Blue Circle are in the early stages of negotiation with the state-run electricity supplier Electricite du Cambodge (EDC) to thrash out a power purchase agreement (PPA) over the farm, which will be located on Bokor Mountain in Kampot province.“The process could take between six months to a year to complete and the PPA could be as low as 7 cents per kilowatt-hour,” said Victor Jona, director general of Energy at the Ministry of Mines and Energy.Once a deal has been struck, construction of the clean-energy farm, which will feature a minimum of 10 wind turbines and the capability to produce 80 megawatts per year. In general, one megawatt can serve the energy needs of between 225 and 300 houses over 12 months.Power consumption across the country last year reached about 12 million kilowatt hours, an increase of 23 percent on 2018. Hydropower currently dominates and serves 33 percent of the nation’s needs, but the government is on a mission to diversify into “stable and reliable” energy sources contributing to the national grid to meet growing demand.According to a recent study by the Asian Development Bank (ADB), Cambodia has further potential for 10,000 megawatts (mW) of hydropower, with 8,100 mW and 6,500 mW respectively for solar and wind power.[Chhut Bunthoeun]More: Winds of change for energy industry Cambodia’s state-run utility negotiating to build country’s first wind farmlast_img read more

Minority panel chairs doubled

first_imgMinority panel chairs doubled July 1, 2006 Regular News Minority panel chairs doubled Thanks to the diversity efforts of past Bar presidents, The Florida Bar has more than doubled the number of minorities who will be leading Bar committees in the 2006-07 fiscal year.Incoming Bar President Hank Coxe reported to the Bar Board of Governors recently that for each of the past two years, minorities held 8 percent of the Bar committees’ chairs.For the new Bar year, Coxe, who recently completed the task of appointing members to Bar committees, said he was able to increase that figure to 17 percent, but quickly added he benefited from the actions of prior Bar leaders.“The reason for that is [past Presidents] Miles McGrane, Kelly Overstreet Johnson, and Alan Bookman worked so hard on getting minorities to participate in committees that when I got to this point the work had already been done,” Coxe said, noting he had a cadre of experienced minority committee members to choose from for committee leadership posts.Increasing the participation of minorities in Bar activities has been a top goal of recent Bar presidents and the Board of Governors.last_img read more

5 things you can do immediately to improve your marketing efforts

first_img BE AUTHENTICDon’t ever be anything less than honest in your advertising – consumers (especially your own members) will see right through it. You can start by simply avoiding standard jargon and robotic messaging. Consumers are exposed to over 360 ads per day. That’s about one ad every 2 minutes that we’re awake. They know hogwash when they see it. Be genuine. Be authentic. Don’t swindle. Once you’ve lost consumer trust, gaining it back will be costly.Take a look at some of these unique ads for some inspiration.THE BOTTOM LINEOf course, you can implement these ideas immediately, but as I mentioned before, success comes with efficiency, and more importantly, consistency. Learn from your results and continuously evolve, and you’ll be guaranteed to find marketing strategy success.———————–Need help writing your marketing strategy? Download this free Marketing Strategy Template. Many credit unions make the mistake of believing that the more money you throw at marketing, the more successful it will be. As many of you know, or have come to learn the hard way, that’s simply not the case.Marketing a credit union can be hard to get a grasp on sometimes, especially seeing that not only marketing mediums, but the industry itself is evolving daily. Changing demographics, fluctuating financial situations for your members given the national economic climate, among other contributors can lead to countless hours of frustration, especially if you’re looking for immediate turnaround.So, what can you do? How can you improve your marketing ROI? How can you invest your time, energy and money into marketing so that it produces almost immediate results? Take a deep breath and don’t worry! Here are five things you can do to immediately improve your marketing efforts. PERSONALIZE YOUR MESSAGEOne of the coolest selling points of credit unions over banks is the fact that credit unions are more personable, right? Who doesn’t love a “mom and pop shop” where everybody knows your name? Your members are more than just a number when they walk into your branch. This is the same mindset you should have when putting your marketing strategy together.Any message you send out about your credit union, whether you are promoting your credit card services, or educating members about home equity loans, you need to make it about the member. Every piece of marketing should be specifically targeted to varying demographics.73% of U.S. consumers agree that ads should tell a unique story rather than just try to sell (Adobe and Edelman Berland, 2012). Try using local stories or member testimonials to your advantage. They are inexpensive (often free), and right at your fingertips. Never let a good story go to waste. KNOW WHO YOU’RE TALKING TOThis goes hand-in-hand with personalizing your message. Your marketing strategy will go down the drain immediately if you do not know who exactly you’re marketing to.I challenge you to look deeper than the typical “lives, works worships” or “employees of XYZ”. Those target markets are great for the overall strategic plan, but when it comes to marketing you need to differentiate your audience a bit further. Identify your target marketing audience and parse into consumer segments, noting the differences and similarities in buying habits. Be sure to determine a tone of voice, marketing pitch, and high propensity delivery channels for each segment. For example, if you’re marketing financial investment options to baby boomer members, using the same tone, imagery, and language that you would use when marketing to Millennials will surely reduce the response rate.Set your goal, set your tone, set your strategy, and THEN approach your chosen audience. This may seem like a no-brainer, but you would be surprised at how many credit unions try to speak to each of their consumer segments in the same tone, and ultimately have a failed marketing strategy before it even begins. USE THE RIGHT DELIVERY CHANNELS#3 clearly piggy-backs off #4… and it is very important.Knowing your audience ultimately means that you know the best ways to reach them. Take the time to do research on the best ways to reach each demographic or segment. This is a sure-fire way to immediately improve your marketing strategy.An obvious example; if you are trying to reach a person between the ages of 17-22, placing an ad in the newspaper may not be the best way to reach them (unless you are trying to reach their parents or grandparents). Millennials are multi-taskers which makes marketing to them even more difficult. Syncing your millennial-focused ads across multiple delivery channels (and devices) might be a better way to reach this group. KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF ‘CALL-TO-ACTION’“Read to the end of this article and get $1 million to renovate your bedroom!”If only that were true. But it caught your attention, right? It gave you clear instructions on how to win the money and why. That is an effective call-to-action (depending on the consumer segment of course).When it comes to marketing, quick results only come with an efficient strategy. Quite frankly, there is no successful marketing strategy without a successful call-to-action. Here are some tips:Use a strong command verb (i.e. buy, download, subscribe, apply)Use vocabulary that will entice an emotion or enthusiasm (i.e. Plan your dream vacation!)Take advantage of a human’s FOMO (fear of missing out) (i.e. Don’t wait. Sale ends Monday!)Be creative (Buck the norm)When possible, use numbers (i.e. Payments as low as $299/mo!) 27SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Hilary Reed Hilary Reed, founder of EmpowerFi, is an innovative thought-leader who has been involved in various aspects of strategic sales and marketing for 15 years.

PGN to spend $2.5 billion to support PLN’s gasification program

first_imgLNG receiving terminals and gas distribution facilities will be built in regions such as Nusa Tenggara, West Kalimantan, North Papua, Sulawesi and Maluku.The government has ordered PLN to use natural gas in some of its power plants in order to reduce Indonesia’s oil imports and to increase usage of cleaner fuel sources.The Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry issued a decree dated Jan. 10 ordering PLN to use LNG in its 52 diesel power plants that will be later modified to enable them to use gas.PLN president director Zulkifli Zaini said on Jan. 28 that the program would reduce the company’s diesel consumption from 2.6 million kiloliters (kL) last year to 1.6 million kL “with estimated operational cost savings at Rp 4 trillion (US$293.9 million).” The company has two years to execute the program. (hen)Topics : Gas distribution company PT Perusahaan Gas Negara (PGN), part of state-owned oil and gas holding company Pertamina, will spend about US$2.5 billion on the construction of liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving terminals and gas distribution facilities to support the gasification program of state-owned electricity company PLN, an executive of the company has said.As required by Pertamina, PGN would build LNG receiving terminals and their distribution facilities to meet the gas needs of PLN’s power plants in a number of locations in the country, PGN corporate secretary Rachmat Hutama said in a statement issued in Jakarta on Sunday.”PGN has developed a small scale LNG terminal that can be used to supply electricity to PLN’s power plants,” Rachmat said as reported by kompas.com.last_img read more

Peru hospital managers’ ‘mass walkout’ over medics’ strike

first_imgDoctors and other public sector workers say their wages have fallen behindAbout 90% of hospital managers in Peru have resigned in support of doctors on strike over pay, union officials say.The head of Peru’s medical federation, Cesar Palomino, told the BBC that more than 300 managers had quit in the capital Lima alone.The walkout by 11,000 doctors, now in its fifth week, has caused huge backlogs in hospitals and clinics.Doctors say that despite Peru’s recent strong economic growth, their pay has not been increased in years.Unions blame President Ollanta Humala’s conservative economic policies, championed by Finance Minister Luis Miguel Castilla, for blocking wage increases.Mr Palomino said the strike had reached a turning point and the government’s only option was to give in to doctors’ demands.“We think the root cause of this bad situation is the finance minister,” he said.Union official Jesus Bonilla said: “Our country has been growing strongly but pay in the public sector for the last decade has fallen substantially.“We haven’t received a cent of increases. Our buying power has fallen 30 or 40%.”‘Committing a crime’The government – which has also been struggling to cope with a strike by teachers – insists that pay must be merit-based and linked to performance.“We call on the doctors to return to work because the people who are suffering the costs of this are the patients,” Mr Castilla said late last month. “Dialogue is always open, an offer has been made, but we won’t respond to blackmail.”Health Minister Midori de Habich has said that hospital administrators who resign “would be committing a crime”.The BBC’s Mattia Cabitza in Lima says the doctors’ strike is particularly affecting Peru’s poorest, who cannot afford private healthcare.Mr Humala took office in July 2011 vowing to eradicate poverty and social exclusion. But many Peruvians complain he has not done enough to share the wealth from the country’s exploitation of its natural resources.BBC News Sharing is caring!

No FA action against Scudamore

first_img Press Association The Football Association has restated its position that it cannot take action against Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore despite some calls for him to be charged for sending sexist e-mails. Rani Abraham, the former temporary personal assistant who leaked the emails, said she was disappointed and surprised the Premier League had taken no sanctions against Scudamore. She told BBC Radio Five Live: “I’m highly surprised the Premier League have decided to take no sanctions whatsoever against Richard Scudamore. “I feel very disappointed, I think it sends out a damaging message about how we regard women in football.” Abraham said she had not been contacted as part of the league’s investigation. She added: “They haven’t approached me, they haven’t heard my side of the story so there has not been a thorough investigation. I honestly think they are not taking the sexism seriously.” Abraham said that she had been threatened with legal action by the Premier League after taking the emails to the Sunday Mirror and was herself now considering taking legal action against the organisation. She added: “When I approached the Mirror I received a letter from the Premier League’s lawyers threatening legal action. They said there had been a breach of trust, it was a very threatening letter, I have had a couple now, and I believe the Premier League are trying to scare me. “I won’t go quiet because I am standing up for what I believe in. “I haven’t taken legal action but I am speaking to a solicitor at the moment.” The Premier League would not comment on Abraham’s latest claims. It is understood however that she was asked to return the copies of the emails she had taken as they contained confidential and commercially sensitive information, and that the contents of the emails should be treated as confidential. Scudamore spoke of his “sincere contrition” after the top-flight clubs decided against any disciplinary action against him and vowed to hold a series of meetings across football’s administration to reassure them of his commitment to promote women in the game. Meanwhile, DLA Piper on Tuesday evening confirmed Nick West, the TV rights legal specialist who exchanged the emails with Scudamore, would not lose his job over the episode. The global law firm, which has headquarters in London, has accepted West’s assurances that the content of the emails was “not reflective of his beliefs”. “The firm has conducted its review,” a DLA Piper spokesperson said in a statement. “We have concluded that there was a failure to meet the high professional standards in which we take pride as a firm, whilst recognising that these were emails exchanged between friends and accessed without permission. “We have accepted Mr West’s assurances that these emails are not reflective of his beliefs and values and that there will be no recurrence of this behaviour.” West said: ‘I sincerely apologise for my actions. “In sending the emails in question I let myself, my firm and its clients down. I have an obligation to uphold the highest professional standards and I give my assurance that this will be the case going forward.” Dyke said in a statement: “Last week, the FA made it clear that Mr Scudamore was not an employee of the Football Association and, as such, we had no position in terms of employment policy or taking disciplinary action. “We were of the view that was a matter for the Premier League and we asked them to keep us informed of the actions they were taking. “In terms of wider FA disciplinary action, we were advised that the FA does not as a matter of policy consider private communications sent with a legitimate expectation of privacy to amount to professional misconduct. The FA has applied this policy on an ongoing basis and in relation to numerous other cases.” IAB chair Heather Rabbatts, was also at the meeting with acting chairman McCormick, and she will take on the task of ensuring the Premier League keeps to its ” undertaking to take further steps on inclusion and diversity”. Dyke said McCormick has assured him the league had followed “proper process under their own employment and disciplinary rules and had conducted a thorough investigation”. The FA chairman added: “We said last week that we considered the contents of the emails in question to be totally inappropriate and are still of that view, as is the Premier League. “It is important to reiterate the significant focus the FA gives to equality, not least through the work of its Inclusion Advisory Board (IAB), and to tackling all forms of discrimination. “FA board member Heather Rabbatts… joined me in this morning’s meeting. I have asked her to follow up with the Premier League to discuss the wider issues around the inclusion agenda and see how the FA and Premier League can work together to make meaningful the League’s undertaking to take further steps on inclusion and diversity.” FA chairman Greg Dyke met his counterpart at the Premier League, Peter McCormick, on Tuesday for talks over the issue after the top-flight clubs decided to take no action against Scudamore. One member of the FA’s inclusion advisory board (IAB), equality campaigner Edward Lord, has obtained a legal opinion that the FA could take disciplinary action but Dyke reaffirmed that will not take place. last_img read more
