Sport Management grads share insight into career paths

SPMA Professional Development Workshop Convocation season is a reminder of that burning question that every student thinks about … what’s next?On Friday, May 24, the Sport Management department brought alumni to campus to speak to students about life after Brock, and their career trajectory. Kojo Mensah (BSM ’04), Joel Cote (BSM ’01), Derek Paton (BSM ’03), Melody Rioux (BSM ’02), Jessie Barrett (BSM ’10), Dan Hess (BSM ’06) and David Frizzell spoke to a group of SPMA 1P94 students at a professional development workshop designed to shed light on various career paths, the skills that are necessary to succeed in the working world and opportunities in the sport industry – three topics described by Prof. Julie Stevens as a good opportunity for “perspective building” for students.Student attendee, Patrick Allen explained that “it was good to see real-life examples of career paths, some direct and not-so-direct; and interesting to see some are not in the professional sport industry or even the sport industry at all.”Many speakers encouraged the students to “find a mentor” as mentors can give career advice and help build connections with other professionals. Students took advantage of the lunch session to begin to build relationships and network with the visiting speakers.Stevens suggested that alumni like to give back to current students and take advantage of “opportunities to share knowledge” with younger students as a way to pay it forward. The benefits to these alumni and career panels often go both ways, though; the chance to build professional relationships (with students and fellow alumni) is important for both student and speaker.Brock’s Mentorship Plus program is another opportunity to speak to current students, connect, expand professional networks, and refine valuable skills like leadership, communication and problem solving. The program pairs graduating students with an alumnus in the same area of expertise or academia. If you are a graduate who believes that, as Stevens put it, you “have something good to share,” Mentorship Plus may be an opportunity for you.Whether you’re looking to speak to students through an alumni panel or speaker event, or if you’re looking to mentor in a one-to-one relationship like Mentorship Plus, there are many opportunities to share what you know.

Ohio State defensive struggles stem from lack of execution

Powell totaled 4 tackles in OSU’s 35-21 loss.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorFollowing its first loss of the young 2014 season, the Ohio State defense is trying to regroup.After allowing nine third-down conversions from the Virginia Tech Hokies on Saturday, redshirt-sophomore safety Tyvis Powell said Monday that simple mistakes cost the Buckeyes defensively.“We looked at the tape, reviewed it, everybody else talked about what they needed to work on. We communicated the mental errors,” Powell said. “We went over it yesterday in practice, got it corrected and we are looking forward to the future now.”Co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach Chris Ash said a lack of execution, especially on third downs, is what led to the defensive struggles.“Third down, especially in the first quarter, I think we were 0-5 …  (Virginia Tech) did a good job, but it was more about our mistakes,” Ash said Monday. “(Third downs were) critical situations outside of first and second down, but situations you work on all the time, you really need to be at your best. We were not at our best Saturday night.”Ash said he was disappointed his defense could not hold the Hokies at the most critical point in the game after the Buckeye offense tied the game at 21.“When you talk about momentum changers in a game, it is absolutely a turning point,” Ash said. “The stadium was alive and the team was juiced up on the sidelines … (then) we had a couple mistakes. It was more about us than Virginia Tech and what they did.”Coach Urban Meyer said Monday he thought the defense was “average” against the Hokies and he expects the Buckeyes to improve on that side of the ball.“We had a couple third (downs), didn’t get them off the field (on) third down in the first half,” Meyer said. “But for a good 2 1/2 plus quarters, it was a very good defense. It’s not four quarters of defense. I like the direction we’re going, we just need to get there really fast.”Ash said he believes his defense will be able to make the necessary changes prior to the Buckeyes’ next game against Kent State.“It is still a new defense to the guys,” Ash said. “Are we discouraged about the game Saturday? Absolutely. Could we have played better in a couple situations to make a difference? Absolutely. Do we still have a chance to be outstanding? I believe so, and we all think so.”Meyer said because of the loss, there was no victory meal for the first time after a regular-season game since he arrived in Columbus. He added that his players would be given the rest of Monday to be upset before getting back to work Tuesday.“I can tell they’re hurting,” Meyer said. “So we get to hurt the rest of the day today, and then coaching staff and players need to move forward and try to get our second win.”The aftermath of the loss and lack of a victory meal is an experience Powell said he doesn’t want to have again.“It is something that I really didn’t enjoy and something that I cannot get used to,” he said.The Buckeyes look to rebound Saturday at noon against the Kent State Golden Flashes at Ohio Stadium. read more

Bientôt un Chinois sur la Lune le pays dévoile son programme spatial

first_imgBientôt un Chinois sur la Lune ? le pays dévoile son programme spatialJeudi, la Chine a dévoilé à la presse son ambitieux programme spatial pour les cinq prochaines années. Celui-ci prévoit notamment l’envoi d’un Chinois sur la Lune et la conception de fusées au carburant propre.Si la Chine s’est illustrée bien plus tard que la Russie ou les Etats-Unis dans le domaine du spatial, elle entend bien aujourd’hui rattraper son retard. C’est du moins ce que suggère le programme spatial que le pays a dévoilé jeudi dans un Livre blanc. En effet, celui-ci comporte de nombreux projets plutôt ambitieux et montre bien que le pays, devenu en 2003, le troisième à envoyer des hommes dans l’espace, a décidé de placer son programme spatial au coeur de tous les attentions. À lire aussiLune, cigarette électronique et intelligence artificielle, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 3 SeptembreParmi les projets figurent notamment celui d’accroître les chances de la Chine d’envoyer un homme sur la Lune mais aussi de construire une station spatiale. Une ambition qui a enthousiasmé le quotidien China Daily titrant en Une “Mission sur la Lune à l’horizon” et évoquant le “pas de géant” inclus dans le Livre blanc. Toutefois, le projet n’étonne pas au vu des différentes missions réalisées au cours de l’année par le pays qui a effectué avec succès son tout premier rendez-vous spatial entre un vaisseau Shenzhou et le module Tiangong-1. Outre cela, le programme évoque également que les fusées Longue Marche de nouvelle génération “utiliseront un carburant non toxique et non polluant” et seront capables de lancer dans l’espace de lourdes charges. “Les Longue Marche-5 pourront placer sur orbite des charges de 25 tonnes”, a précisé le porte-parole de l’Administration spatiale nationale chinoise (CNSA), Zhang Wei. Une prouesse également saluée par Morris Jones, un expert indépendant en conquête spatiale, basé à Sydney. Cité par l’AFP, il a indiqué : “il est impressionnant que la Chine atteigne la prochaine étape de mise en orbite de charges lourdes, cruciale pour réaliser son objectif de conception d’une station spatiale d’ici 2020”.Une station spatiale chinoise pour 2020 ? Ce projet de nouvelles fusées s’ajoute à ceux déjà révélés par la Chine : l’établissement d’une base de lancement sur l’île de Hainan (sud) et le lancement de sondes lunaires (déjà entamé). Ces derniers engins baptisés Chang’E, dont le deuxième a été envoyé l’an dernier, font partie d’un programme d’exploration qui devrait aboutir à la construction d’un laboratoire spatial pour 2016 et à l’envoi de spationautes chinois sur le satellite de la Terre, à côté de la construction d’une station spatiale vers 2020, rapporte l’AFP. Néanmoins, le Livre Blanc ne donne toujours pas de calendrier précis notamment sur l’envoi d’un homme sur la Lune.Le 30 décembre 2011 à 16:13 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Le poisson qui imite la pieuvre imitatrice

first_imgLe poisson qui imite la pieuvre imitatriceDécrite récemment dans la revue Coral Reefs, une scène jusqu’alors inconnue des biologistes marins a pu être observée et filmée dans des récifs indonésiens : un petit poisson qui, adoptant la même coloration que son hôte, se camoufle près d’une pieuvre… elle-même connue pour imiter d’autres animaux marins.  C’est en 1998 seulement que les scientifiques ont découvert l’incroyable pieuvre-mime (Thaumoctopus mimicus). Cette créature a le don d’adapter sa couleur et la configuration de ses bras pour imiter la silhouette ondulante de serpents marins ou de poissons toxiques, ce qui lui permet de se déplacer en eaux ouvertes sans trop craindre d’éventuels prédateurs. Mais les biologistes se sont récemment aperçus que l’habile céphalopode avait lui-même, d’une certaine façon, un talentueux imitateur.À lire aussiQuand une pieuvre se fait surpasser dans l’art du camouflage (Vidéo)Lors d’une plongée en Indonésie en juillet 2011, Godehard Kopp, de l’Université de Göttingen (Allemagne), a filmé puis fait découvrir à ses collègues Rich Ross et Luiz Rocha, de l’Académie des Sciences de Californie, un appariement inattendu : un timide petit poisson de récif de l’espèce Stalix histrio se déplaçant hors de son terrier… en se dissimulant entre les tentacules d’une pieuvre-mime, dont il suivait les mouvements, sans doute pour chercher sa propre nourriture en toute sécurité.Arborant des marques brunes et blanches similaires à celles de la pieuvre, le poisson était très difficile à repérer. Le poulpe, pour sa part, paraissait parfaitement indifférent à la présence de son suiveur. “C’est un cas unique dans les récifs, non seulement parce que le ‘modèle’ du poisson est lui-même un imitateur, mais aussi parce que c’est le premier cas où un poisson de cette espèce est impliqué dans un phénomène de mimétisme”, a déclaré le Dr Luiz Rocha, ichtyologue à l’Académie des Sciences de Californie cité par Science Daily.Le 7 janvier 2012 à 15:51 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

The Porsche 911 hybrid will come when we ask for it

first_img Share your voice 40 Photos 2020 BMW 330e first drive: A plug-in 3 Series without compromise Porsche hasn’t been afraid to point out that the new (992) generation of its 911 is capable of spawning a hybrid variant. But it appears that while Porsche is ready to make this happen, it won’t become a reality until the market demands it.A future hybrid variant of the 911 will depend on when buyers want it. “It has not been decided yet, and the one who will decide will be our customers, but we are ready for that,” said Detlev von Platen, Porsche’s board member responsible for sales and marketing, in a roundtable interview with Roadshow. “We could imagine having [an electrified] 911 in the course of the lifecycle.”Previous reports have been all over the map, with some reports claiming a possible launch date of 2022, while others back up von Platen’s comments about there not being a specific timetable in place. That sort of “nobody knows” situation could actually be a metaphor for the market’s current whims. Some fans are more willing to embrace the idea of an electrified 911 than others, just as some countries are more willing to embrace electrification as a whole. Enlarge ImageA little extra torque never hurts. Porsche Although, when Porsche does see fit to slap an electric motor in its hallowed Neunelfer, some people will likely grab for their closest set of clutchin’ pearls. But that’s not new to Porsche: “We decided for efficiency reasons to introduce turbo technology in each and every six-cylinder boxer engine. [There were] big reactions,” von Platen said. “Six months later, everybody understood. I think we have this reaction all the time when we touch the 911, and it’s normal. It’s a good sign.”When it does arrive, it would be safe to assume that it wouldn’t become a new type of base model, but it will rather exist as an option for buyers, just the same as upgrading to a Turbo variant over a base Carrera. Porsche hopes that flexibility, which it intends to maintain across other parts of its lineup as well, will not only appeal to more buyers, but also make sure that everybody has something they like. “People might say, ‘[Electrification] is not for me yet.’ Therefore, we’ll have parallels,” von Platen said. “I think it’s important to have this insurance policy in place.”As much as parts of the 911 feel immutable, the car has been no stranger to change, whether it’s the introduction of fuel injection, water-cooled engines or all-wheel drive. Yet, at the same time, those changes tend to come on slowly, with a sort of measured approach that doesn’t fall prey to trends. Thus, if you have any concern about the 911 going entirely electric in the remotely near future, fear not, because von Platen said it’s “much too early” to discuss that.

Vandalised vehicle intact 103 accused

first_imgThe human hauler seized by police, said to be vandalised, was seen intact in front of the Tongi police station on Tuesday afternoon. Photo: Prothom AloThe ‘human hauler’ vehicle, allegedly crushed and vandalised by BNP men and for which a case had been filed too, stands in perfect condition in front of the Tongi police station in Gazipur.The High Court stayed the Gazipur City Corporation polls for three months on Sunday following a writ petition seeking postponement by an Awami League man.The police filed a case naming 103 persons in connection with vandalising a human hauler and sabotage on Monday. Most of the accused are BNP mayoral candidate Hasan Uddin Sarkar’s relatives or members of his election affairs committee.The police, with extraordinary speed, detained 12 men, after conducting a drive around Hasan Sarkar’s residence, in one and a half hours following the High Court stay order on Sunday.The BNP leaders say the police filed a false case in order to harass BNP men, and the elections affairs committee members were detained intentionally to clear the way for the ruling party in case the polls take place.There are 100-150 unidentified accused in the case statement. Among them 48 persons are from Hasan Uddin’s election affairs management committee.The case has been filed under the Special Powers Act,1974.The alleged crime spot in front of the Star Haven restaurant on the Mymensingh highway, is several yards away from Hasan Sarkar’s residence.It is said that the incident took place around 4:30pm Sunday and the case was filed at 6:10am Monday. A human hauler, with the number of Dhaka-Metro-Ga-11-6080 and broken pieces of glass and bricks, has been seized as evidence.The statement also said that, 12 persons were arrested from the spot and 100-150 party men ran away seeing the police. They set ablaze a human hauler and vandalised things, the statement read.But the human hauler was found parked intact in front of the Tongi police station on Tuesday with no signs of vandalism.The Prothom Alo correspondent found the owner of the vehicle Md. Alamin, from Kamaria village of Gazipur, seated inside. He said, the police took requisition of the vehicle around 3:00pm on 6 May. He said, the police then detained three or four persons, took them aboard from the Cherag Ali area of Tongi around 4:30pm that day. As the hauler went out of order on the way, the law enforcers left it and took another vehicle.Later that day, Alamin said, they fixed the hauler and on their way, the police again stopped the vehicle just before their police station around 6:15pm.The account of the hauler driver Rakib, matches Alamin’s statement. Both of them said that no vandalism had been carried out.The accused include Gazipur district BNP general secretary and of the election affairs committee member secretary Kazi Saiyedul Alam, public relations officer for the BNP’s election affairs committee Mazharul Alam, Gazipur sadar upazila council chairman and election committee member Izadur Rahman.Cousins of Hasan Sarkar, Salah Uddin Sarkar, Pappu Sarkar, Nakib Uddin Sarkar and Apu Sarkar, are also on the list of accused.The election committee members including Idris Sarkar of Konabari unit at ward 7-12, Nazim Uddin chairman of Kauntia unit at ward 19-23, Suruj of ward 13-18, Haji Samad of Gachha unit at ward 23-38, Nasir Uddin of ward 51, several councillors from other wards and more men from BNP, Jamaat and Hefazat-e-Islam have also been accused.Hasan Uddin Sarkar told Prothom Alo, when party leaders and activists came to know the election was deferred, gathered at the college gate area and also around his house. But there were no incidents of vandalism or arson. He complained that he was intentionally “harassed by fabricated cases, indiscriminate arrests” that would make the tough election race harder for him without his men at hand.Rejecting the allegation, Md Kamal Hossain, the officer in charge of Tongi police station said, the case was filed as per situation demanded.Moreover, “The owner of the hauler is telling lies just to get the vehicle released,” he said.Surprisingly there are discrepancies in the case statement too. The names of the two accused Salah Uddin Sarkar and his nephew Mamun Sarkar are written as the same.Another two accused were Shawkat Hossain, the convener of election operating committee and former UP chairman, and his wife.  Shawkat’s wife is not involved in any political activities, said the local BNP leaders.The case statement also shows that the alleged damages caused by so-called vandalising and torching, amounted to Tk 250,000. The hauler was crushed and seats were burnt when it was seized, said the statement.Police conducted raids to arrest the leaders and activists, accusing them of creating unrest and anarchy and creating fear among people. They arrested 12 activists who were evading arrest.BNP vice chairman Abdullah Al Noman was one of the 12 arrested, though he was released six hours after being detained. His name was not mentioned in the statement either.Speaking of the incidents, the Gazipur district BNP president Fazlul Haque said, “The government is scared of BNP’s popularity and public support.”Both the voters and candidates were frustrated after the election was suspended. Party leaders and men now fear arrest, he added.Both the BNP and AL candidates filed cases challenging the polls stay order respectively on Monday and Tuesday. The four-member bench of the Appellate Division deferred the Wednesday (today) hearing in response to the election’s commission’s request as it would file another appeal petition.*This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Nusrat Nowrin and Farjana Liakat.last_img read more

10 Essential Sketches from Portlandia

first_imgPortlandia returns tonight for its seventh season, and wouldn’t you know, there’s still a lot of material to be mined from the weirdest city on the west coast. This season, the show promises to get back to its roots with more of a sketch show format, rather than the long-form stories recent seasons have focused on. That makes it a great time to get back in. If it’s been a while for you, or if you’ve somehow never seen the show, we’ve put together a list of the ten sketches you have to watch before tonight’s premiere.1. The Dream of the 90sThe sketch that started it all. This song was the very first thing anyone saw of Portlandia and it did a wonderful job of setting the tone. Two minutes into the pilot episode and you know exactly what you’re in for and what kind of city Portland is. This is the sketch that cemented Portland in people’s minds as “the city where young people go to retire.” A place where you could hang out and work a couple of hours a week at a coffee shop.In season two, they updated the song to include a few details they missed originally. Specifically, they mentioned the trends of waxed handlebar mustaches, buying hyper-local, raising your own chickens and curing your own meat. Fred Armisen acknowledges that those things don’t sound too much like the 1990s and the song changes to “The Dream of the 1890s.” No matter what century it is, it’s always some kind of ’90s in Portland.2. Is It Local?Portlandia really knocked it out of the park with their first episode. Right after “Dream of the ’90s,” they give us this amazing parody of farm-to-table restaurants. The sketch is arguably even more relevant now, as farm-to-table isn’t just a Portland hipster thing. They are everywhere, as are the patrons who can’t just enjoy a meal without asking a million questions. While the sketch takes the idea to an absurd extreme, some of the jokes don’t seem that far-fetched. It isn’t hard to imagine that a restaurant would tell you the name and habitat of the chicken you are about to eat.This sketch also introduces Peter and Nance, two of the show’s funniest recurring characters. They are an insufferably cute couple who never want to say no to anything. They often don’t become aware of their situation until it’s too late and end up getting involved in Portland’s stranger communities. Like a cult on a farm run by Jason Sudeikis, for example.3. Air Conditioner (Women and Women First Bookstore)It was hard to choose one Women and Women First Bookstore sketch because they’re all hilarious. Toni and Candace run a feminist bookstore that remains open despite their apparent reluctance to sell customers anything. (They would like you to sign up for a class, though.) The air conditioner sketch that begins the compilation above is probably the best representation of these characters. The repairman just wants to do his job, but he can’t until Candace and Toni teach him why he shouldn’t use the word “unit” around them. It would have been easy to fall into lazy humorless feminist stereotypes, but Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein avoid them by creating two unique, fleshed-out characters. They realize they provide an important service and have let that go to their heads.On the other hand, the real-life bookstore that plays Women and Women First actually banned the show from filming there earlier this year. They cited lost profits and accused the show of contributing to the gentrification of Portland. Still, it does make you wonder if maybe the jokes began to hit too close to home.4. One More EpisodePortlandia is at its best when it’s making fun of something that’s not inherent to Portland. When this season two sketch aired, binge-watching was a relatively new thing. Now that it has become the way most of us watch TV, this sketch hits even harder. Doug and Claire start watching an episode of Battlestar Galactica (remember when we were all obsessed with that show?) and can’t stop. We’ve all been hit by that “one more episode” syndrome, which almost makes this sketch feel like a cautionary tale. Doug and Clair neglect every other part of their lives to watch more Battlestar and are devastated when it’s over. Five years later, this sketch is barely even satire anymore. It almost makes you want to reevaluate how much time you spend binging TV. Almost.Fred Armisen, Kumail Nanjiani and Carrie Brownstein (Photo via IFC)5. Around the World in 80 PlatesAny time Kumail Nanjiani is on the show, pure gold starts coming out of the TV screen. Around the World in 80 Plates might be the best sketch the show has ever had. Sadly, no videos exist on Youtube, but the series in available on Netflix. This sketch occurs in the first episode of season two. Fred and Carrie (playing themselves) are on a mission to find a mixologist who has moved to Southern California. When they get there, they head to a restaurant for food only to discover that ordering isn’t so simple. Their waiter wants to guide them through the restaurant’s worldly cuisine and Fred just wants a hamburger. They don’t sell hamburgers; they sell Slamburgers. And of course, every item has a million different styles you can add, like super spiking. That’s where they pour Jack Daniels over your food. Nanjiani is hilarious as the particular waiter who wants to make sure his customers know about every menu item and special, no matter how long it takes.6. Spoiler AlertOne side effect of our collective binge-watching TV habit is that nobody is every on the same page when it comes to TV anymore. And since most of us want to be surprised, we’re all extremely wary of spoilers. That spoiler sensitivity is lampooned in this season three sketch about a group of friends who can’t talk about anything they’ve seen because nobody is completely caught up. It even ends with a nice callback to the Battlestar Galactica episode. Be warned, though: The sketch contains a fair amount of spoilers. If you don’t yet know that Darth Vader is Luke Skywalker’s father, this sketch will ruin it for you. Just looking out.7. 911 Beets EmergencySomewhere along the line, everyone decided to start eating beets, and with that came an unfortunate side effect. Yes, beets are very good for you. They lower blood pressure; they prevent heart disease, and they make your bones stronger. They also make your toilet look like a scene out of a slasher movie. This Portlandia sketch, depicting a 911 call center, is funny and scatological, sure. It also provides an important service: reminding everyone who just had beets for the first time in a while to calm down. That’s not blood in your stool. It’s just beets. No matter how serious it looks, it’s always beets.8. Social BankruptcyThis sketch satirizes the fact that we are so connected to our friends at every moment that we never get any personal time. Carrie, like most of us, is constantly on her phone. She has texts to answer, plans to make, statuses to comment on, and it’s driving her crazy. She just wants to escape. So, she declares social bankruptcy, completely wiping her online presence. As nice as that can sound sometimes, it’s not without its consequences. She is now forced to hang out with the only other people who aren’t on social media. It’s a hilarious sketch that only becomes more relevant with each passing year. Personally, I recommend the Seattle solution for social overload. Say “we should really hang out sometime” and never speak to another human being again.Still from “Seaworld” (Photo: Via IFC)9. Eco-Terrorists in SeaworldAnother great group of recurring characters are the most ineffectual eco-terrorists in existence. In season five, they try to organize a protest to save the whales and head to San Diego to fight Sea World. They didn’t count on San Diego being awesome and having tons of fun stuff to do. The big demonstration is constantly pushed back in favor of going to the beach, eating tacos and partying. By the time they do get around to it, they’ve lost sight of the actual goal a bit. It’s a great sketch that gets bonus points for the appearance of Jeff Goldblum, who is one of Portlandia’s funniest recurring guest stars.Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen in “Weirdo Beach” (Photo: Via IFC)10. TSA Red CarpetProbably one of the funniest sketches of last season, and the one that feels the most plausible. TSA Red Carpet begins with a woman who is about to miss her flight due to the long TSA pre-check line. The agent tells her about the TSA’s new premium service, Red Carpet. After being subjected to a creepy-specific background check, members are allowed to breeze right through security on a red carpet. They’re also allowed to bring certain weapons aboard and tell jokes about bombs on the plane. The sketch feels loose and improvised, which makes it even funnier. Given that it comes from one of the more sketch-heavy episodes of last season, it’s a pretty good indication of the kind of humor we can expect from season seven. Portlandia is no longer primarily about making fun of hipsters. Now, it’s a broader, satirical comedy that parodies all aspects of modern life.last_img read more

Think gay clubbing in 90s Manchester was iconic Then you need to

first_imgShare this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… More bars followed swiftly after, each one out-doing the next in style, design and name: Paradise Factory, Cruz 101, Essential, Queer – Manchester’s Canal Street was soon catapulted to international gay party capital status culminating in the city hosting Europride in 2003, the predecessor to Manchester Pride as we know it today.Some may say that partying is just frivolous, hedonistic behaviour… That gay men (and our lesbian, bi-sexual and trans friends) just don’t want to grow up and face the real world.But for me, partying with pride is a defiantly political act.In the 1990s, and to a certain extent the early 2000’s, homophobic attitudes still prevailed. And in a way that thankfully they don’t today. Dancing to the music we loved, parading through the street, simply being visible and unapologetically queer helped in the fight to change that.‘The street itself, whilst still busy at weekends, is struggling’Many would now say the Canal Street bubble has well and truly burst. As societal attitudes have improved, LGBTI revellers have branched out. We now feel more welcome in venues across the city.The street itself, whilst still busy at weekends, is struggling. Bars open and close in the space of a few months and attempts to lure party-goers back. Cheap drinks offers somehow cheapen the whole experience of visiting.Sometimes I feel sad for the end of an era. But times move on. And it’s great that young LGBTI people are finding their place in the world. And in their own way, just like I did.But capturing that nostalgia, those memories, that history, is hugely important. What we experience today, will be tomorrow’s history. That’s what drove me to writing The Newspaper Boy.The play is semi-autobiographical. Most of the people in it are based on real people I once knew. The story follows a similar pattern to mine. A young man who finds fame and fortune on a fictional version of of Manchester’s famous TV cobbled streets, only to lose it on the other.The story follows a 15 year old Christian Dibmore. he bags the part of the new paper boy in fictional northern soap opera Mancroft Walk. It’s set in 1992, a time when the age of consent for gay men was still 21.When Christian become friends with his on-screen girlfriend, Mandy, who has played the ‘adorable’ Rosie Chadwick in Mancroft Walk since she was 10 days old, his eyes are opened to a whole new world. Mandy (Manchester’s answer to Drew Barrymore) introduces him to designer clothes, the gay scene, drugs… and her gay half brother, Max.‘The tabloid press get hold of the gay underage sex scandal of the decade’Christian and Max start a secret affair. But when the tabloid press get hold of the gay underage sex scandal of the decade, Christian finds himself in the limelight for all the wrong reasons.Putting on the play has been may way of celebrating a small part in Manchester’s immense queer history.  I was never outed by the press like Christian is in the play. But I did find myself, aged 15, plastered across the front of the red tops after being caught with a (very small) amount of cannabis.We’re also really excited to be hosting a rave after one of the shows. Hacienda regular DJ Dave Kendrick and Guy Williams will be spinning Flesh and Paradise club classics.It’s a chance for those nostalgic for that incredible part of Manchester’s recent cultural history to reminisce one more time.I for one will be reliving my youth… see you on the dance floor.Words: Chris Hoyle (additional words by Nathaniel Hall)Chris Hoyle is a playwright from Manchester and is Artistic Director of Dibby Theatre.The Newspaper Boy is on from 13-24 February, 7:30pm (including matinees) at 53Two, Albion Street, Manchester. Tickets are priced £11 ($15.47, €12.39) and can be bought from fatsoma.com/thenewspaperboy.Got a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us . eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) GAYSTARNEWS- Manchester is a city that really punches above its weight for its size. The Industrial Revolution. The women’s suffrage movement.Plus, the birthplace of socialism. Also, the world’s first computer (for which openly-gay Alan Turing was partly responsible). And the world’s oldest and longest running television soap opera. (And a dance music history to rival Chicago or New York.) The last two on this list we’re the main influences for my new semi-autobiographical play: The Newspaper Boy.In 1994, aged 14, I was cast as the newspaper boy in Coronation Street and thrust well and truly into the limelight.A lad from working class family from Manchester, I now had attention and money like I’d never known before.And boy, did I take advantage.I’d known I was gay since I was young. And working in television, I was introduced to an array of people who worked hard, and liked to party to let off steam too.It was an intoxicating combination for a 14 year old: growing fame, money, new older (and very cool) mates, designer clothes… I exploded onto Manchester’s famous gay scene complete with wet look curtains and dressed head to toe in Comme De Garcon.Mantos, Paradise Factory, Danceteria and the legendary Flesh were my regular haunts.I’d found a place where I felt I could just be myself and dance the night away necking lads, ogle at infatuating drag queens and meet other people just like me… I was in heaven (I’m sure the drugs helped with that too).Paul Cons had created a revolutionary gay night at the Hacienda called Flesh that only happened on a Wednesday. Despite my television career, I was still a teen and attending school which meant I could only go during school holidays – I could just about manage the come down in Maths on a Monday morning after Paradise and Breakfast Club, but not mid-week after Flesh… Flesh was on another level.One night Flesh put a fairground directly inside the Hacienda. It totally blew my mind. The outfits (or more the lack of outfits) that the partygoers wore, the effort that people made, that’s what made it so special. People would plan what they were going to wear for Flesh weeks before… and, not surprisingly, most didn’t show up for work the day after.People laugh when I talk about the 90’s Manchester gay scene like it was on a par with the New York disco scene and Studio 54, but I make no apologies for it. It was MY Studio 54 and it was MY awakening.Of course it was the people that made it. The Manchester gay scene in the 90’s had a real community feel to it. Even if you didn’t speak to someone, you certainly knew them and saw them dancing in the same spot every weekend.‘Mantos’ declared: “We’re here, we’re queer, and we’re ready to party…”‘At the time, I had no idea just how revolutionary the whole scene was. Opening in 1992, Mantos was the first gay bar with huge glass fronted windows. It was immortalised in Channel 4’s Queer As Folk.Before this Canal Street had been made up of small, seedy bars with peep-holes on the doors. Despite homosexuality being legalised in the 1950s, arrests of gay men for ‘soliciting’ and ‘indecent behaviour’ actually increased in the decades that followed.The HIV/AIDS crisis was looming. Thatcher’s homo-hating Section 28 legislation was in power. And a seriously homophobic press was holding court. But Mantos’ architecturally declared: ‘We’re here, we’re queer, and we’re ready to party…’.

Security beefed up at German magazine after threat

first_img Top ways to honor our heroes on Veterans Day Associated PressBERLIN (AP) – Security has been stepped up for employees of a German magazine and for members of a small far-right party after a known terrorist called for them to be killed in a video online, officials said Tuesday.The video surfaced May 18 on YouTube following street clashes between an ultraconservative Muslim group and the far-right Pro NRW party in Bonn and Solingen, in western Germany.Three security officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue, said they have no specific evidence that attacks are being planned in the wake of the video. But they said they worry it could inspire a lone-wolf type attacker like Arid Uka, an Islamic extremist who killed two U.S. airmen at Frankfurt airport last year after being spurred to action in part by a YouTube video preaching jihad, or holy war. Top Stories “Of bigger concern are the others _ the individuals who have not yet been identified,” said the first official. “Young people who decide to do something, either alone or with others, with simple means.”(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

The police were trying to keep them away from about 30 Pro NRW supporters. Twenty-nine police officers were injured; two were hospitalized with stab wounds.The rally by the marginal anti-immigration Pro NRW party was one of several it held around North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany’s most populous state, ahead of a May 13 state election. Pro NRW won only 1.5 percent of the vote, far short of the score needed to win seats in the state legislature.The Salafist protesters were upset by Pro NRW’s anti-Islam signs, particularly those showing the cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad that provoked outrage in 2005 when they were first printed in a Danish newspaper. Strict Muslims oppose any depiction of their prophet.In the video, Bonn-born Yassin Chouka, who is believed to be with the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region, calls for Muslims to kill Pro NRW members.Speaking in fluent German, Chouka urges the Salafists to move away from street confrontations where the risk of being arrested is too great. He instead tells them to target Pro NRW members at their homes and workplaces, “at best under cover of darkness.” “We should kill all the members of Pro NRW,” he said.He also said employees of Der Spiegel _ which has printed photos of the demonstrations showing the Prophet Muhammad signs _ and others in the media should be targeted.“Der Spiegel, which is linked to the Jews, and other German media have insulted the prophet,” he said in the seven-minute audio message, played with a picture of the street fights in the background.As a result of the video, authorities have taken security measures at Der Spiegel’s Hamburg headquarters and also in Berlin, the officials said without giving more specific details. In addition, at least one of the Pro NRW members who has been identified by name in pictures has been assigned a security detail.Particularly alarming was the call in the video to track down individuals _ an escalation from general non-specific calls for attacks by jihadi groups online.“That is something we have not yet seen,” said another of the officials.Germany’s intelligence and security agencies have been increasingly monitoring the actions of the Salafists, who number some 4,000 in Germany, in recent months.Overall, the officials said some 130 radical Muslims in Germany are known to authorities as being potentially violent, of whom 24 are part of the Salafist movement.last_img read more

Review Teen angst hits the Old West in DOnofrio

first_imgReview: Teen angst hits the Old West, in D’Onofrio’s ‘Kid’ by Jocelyn Noveck, The Associated Press Posted Mar 7, 2019 1:33 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email This image released by Lionsgate shows Chris Pratt, left, and Ethan Hawke in a scene from “The Kid.” (Lionsgate via AP) “There’s no such thing as the West anymore.” That’s actually not a line from “The Kid,” Vincent D’Onofrio’s new coming-of-age Western starring Ethan Hawke, Dane DeHaan and Chris Pratt. It’s from Sam Shepard’s play “True West,” currently on Broadway — and also starring Hawke.In fact, can we talk about Hawke for a minute? The veteran actor is having quite the run these days, on screen and stage. Many feel he was unconscionably robbed of an Oscar nod for “First Reformed,” and he’s delivering a superb performance in “True West.” He’s also the most substantial reason to see “The Kid,” a nice idea that is, alas, thinly executed.The “kid” in the title is not, actually, Billy the Kid, the renowned outlaw whose story loosely inspires the film. It’s a 13-year-old kid named Rio (Jake Schur), who, as we begin, witnesses his mother being beaten to death by his evil father. Rio manages to shoot and kill his dad — only to face the wrath of his vengeful uncle (Chris Pratt, in true villain mode). Rio and his older sister, Sara (Leila George) just barely escape into the night.On the run, with only the vague plan of finding their mother’s friend in Santa Fe (the action is in late 19th-century New Mexico), the pair take refuge in an abandoned shack, where they run smack into Billy (DeHaan) and his companions. Billy’s on the run, his pursuer none other than Pat Garrett (Hawke), the new sheriff in Lincoln County, a gruff but philosophical law-and-order man whose mission is to bring Billy to justice.When Garrett and his men quickly find and capture Billy, Rio and his sister — lying about the reason for their journey — hitch a ride with the group to Santa Fe. Along the way, Rio comes to admire Billy, portrayed by DeHaan as roguish and charming, and even helps him try to break free. Arriving in Santa Fe, Rio and Sara immediately run off — straight into a trap laid by evil Uncle Grant, who kidnaps Sara and warns Rio that if he pursues them, both siblings will die.Now Rio needs to make a choice: who’s more likely to help him rescue Sara, the charismatic outlaw or the upstanding sheriff? More profoundly, will Rio become a bad good guy or a good guy?The teen becomes fast friends with Billy, but if you know your history, you’ll know that Billy, also named William H. Bonney, did not eventually die of natural causes (though in this depiction of the West, death by bullet does seem to be the natural order of things.)In any case, Schur (son of producer Jordan Schur) has a sweet, soulful face but the script gives him little depth to work with. The character of Sara fares even worse; women in this world seem to exist solely to be a) pretty, b) wronged, and c) rescued.As for Billy and Pat Garrett, both roles have been played by dozens of actors over the years. DeHaan gives Billy an appealingly impish spin, though he seems a bit old for the part. Pratt, covered with facial hair, revels in evil vibes. Hawke takes a fairly one-dimensional character and gives it an intelligent and shaded performance. It’s worth noting that this isn’t the team’s first, er, rodeo: Hawke, Pratt and D’Onofrio appeared together in the 2016 Western “The Magnificent Seven.”“Let’s see what you do next, kid,” Hawke’s Garrett tells Rio at one point, but honestly, we’re more curious about Hawke’s next move at a fertile moment in his career. Check out “The Kid” for some pleasant entertainment, but if you really want to see this actor firing on all cylinders, giddy-up to Broadway before “True West” closes March 17.“The Kid,” a Lionsgate release, is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America “for violence and language.” Running time: 99 minutes. Two stars out of four.___MPAA definition of R: Restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult.___Follow Jocelyn Noveck on Twitter at www.Twitter.com/JocelynNoveckAPJocelyn Noveck, The Associated Presslast_img read more
