Rock Bottom Will Rise Again at Joe’s Pub

first_imgRock Bottom will return off-Broadway to Joe’s Pub. The show created by Bridget Everett, Marc Shaiman, Scott Wittman, Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz and Matt Ray ended its recent limited engagement on October 16. Everett will star in the show again from January 6, 2015 through February 20. Additional cast members will be announced later. Rock Bottom Related Shows The show features familiar songs heard in Everett’s monthly showcase with her band The Tender Moments at Joe’s Pub and new original songs written with Shaiman, Wittman, Ray and Horovitz. Cole Escola, Celisse Henderson and Chelsea Packard joined Everett on stage in the show’s run earlier this year. Directed by Wittman, Rock Bottom is the story of what happens when you’re too passionate to give up, and too big to fail. In it, Everett barrels through life tip-toeing toward disaster, wine bottle by wine bottle and man by man. However, instead of succumbing to a chardonnay-induced stupor, Everett embraces a series of revelations that lead her to redemption.

Lawyers donate 1.3 million hours of pro bono work

first_imgFlorida lawyers provided more than 1.3 million hours of pro bono work last year and contributed $2.5 million to legal aid organizations, according to the new figures gleaned from the Bar’s latest dues statements.The new statistics represent an increase in pro bono services over the previous year, when Florida attorneys provided $1.2 million hours of free service and $2.4 million in direct legal aid contributions.“Florida has one of the most aggressive pro bono legal services programs of any state in the nation, encouraging attorneys to provide free services and requiring them to report their contributions on an annual basis,” Bar President Tod Aronovitz said. “Despite the misperceptions many people have about lawyers, the truth is that the legal profession is absolutely dedicated to making the law work for everyone, and we want to make a difference in the lives of our community.”Aronovitz said the 1.3 million hours of pro bono work amounts to more than $65 million in free services, when calculated according to an estimate of $50 per hour in fees (based on doubling the $25-consultation fee charged by lawyers involved in the Bar’s Lawyer Referral Service).Nearly 30,000 of Florida’s 70,000 lawyers provided the free legal services to the poor from July 1, 2001 through June 30, 2002, and 6,784 lawyers donated cash directly to the legal aid providers. In 1993, the Florida Supreme Court adopted a pro bono plan that encourages attorneys to give at least 20 hours per year in free legal services to the poor or contribute a minimum of $350 to legal aid organizations. Included in the Supreme Court plan was a mandatory requirement that every lawyer report whether he or she did or did not participate.“Pro bono contributions from the legal profession have risen steadily through the years, and our goal is to see every Florida lawyer participate and give back to the community,” Aronovitz said.

SA ranked 17th on global gender index

first_img30 October 2013 South Africa has the 17th narrowest gender gap in the world, according to the World Economic Forum’s (WEF’s) latest annual Global Gender Gap Report, which was released on Friday. The annual gender gap index assesses 136 countries, representing more than 93% of the world’s population, on how well resources and opportunities are divided among male and female populations. It sets out to measure the size of the gender inequality gap in the four key areas of economic participation (salaries, job type and seniority), education, politics and health (life expectancy). South Africa dropped one position from last year, but is still ranked ahead of the UK (18), Austria (19) and Canada (20), and is up compared to its 2008 ranking of 22nd out of 130 countries. South Africa is also the second-best performing G20 country, after Germany at 14, and the best performing BRICS member on the index: the next highest is Russia (61), followed by Brazil (62), China (69) and India (101). In Africa, South Africa is second only to Lesotho (16), but is the best performing country on the political empowerment of women, ranking eighth on this subindex globally. South Africa ranked 54th overall for educational attainment, 78th for economic participation and opportunity, and 102nd for health and survival. Other African countries in the top 30 are Burundi (22) and Mozambique (26). Africa’s relatively good performance this year is largely due to the participation of women in the workforce. “Through this economic activity, women have greater access to income and economic decision-making, but are often present in low-skilled and low-paid sectors of the economy,” the WEF said. Nosipho Dorothy Ntwanambi, deputy president of the African National Congress Women’s League, said independent research such as this “consistently reaffirms our assertion that South Africa is a better place for women today than it was in 1994”. Ntwanambi said the government’s commitment to ending discrimination against women was bearing results. “Many more girl children than in 1994 are today gaining access to education, passing matric and obtaining degrees.” The WEF report found that 86 out of 133 countries improved their global gender gap between 2012 and 2013, with the area of political participation seeing the greatest progress.

Know what’s happening in your fields: Overcoming poor soil temperatures

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest It seems that the only thing to stay the same is that weather continues to change and present different challenges each year. I have probably paid more attention to weather this season than any season in the past, trying to understand and plan for shipping needs based on when conditions will be right for planting. I had a structural engineer ask me recently what the soil temperatures were because he knew that 50 degrees was considered a magic number for starting to get things going. I explained to him that in many places in the country right now, it looked like the calendar may override the soil temperatures and push people into the field more than in other years.All that said, we are likely to have some crops in the field this year that are slow to start and may struggle at the first few stages of development. As most of you reading this will know, a good fertility program at planting time will be your greatest asset in cold, wet spring soils. It is also important to remember micronutrients in your planter time program. If the roots struggle to get established, they are in contact with less soil initially. This can provide a real benefit to the use of micronutrients at planting time. If you have not considered putting micros in your planter program, this would be a good year to invest in that.Once the crop is emerged and established, watch for additional deficiencies. Many pest control products can be combined with small amounts of nutrition to assist in early development when applications are required at early stages. AgroLiquid founder, Douglas Cook always encouraged growers to place 2 quarts of a good foliar with every trip across the field. With the cost of making the application, a little fertility is a great way to leverage your investment.Other factors that we don’t often think about also affect nutrient availability. Compaction is one that is critical in years where we get off to a slow start. We have to get into the field as soon as possible to protect against yield loss from a shortened season. That also affects drainage and results in reduced aeration in the soil. Beneficial fungi and bacteria will have a more difficult time symbiotically assisting with nutrient transport and uptake. This is another good argument for nutrients placed in the zone of uptake in seasons like this.There are a lot of additional considerations this year, not unlike most other years. I would encourage you to walk some fields when you are finished planting and pay particular attention to symptoms of delayed emergence and the effects of cold soils. Use every tool you have to give your crop the best opportunity for a successful season and remember that a slow start doesn’t have to mean a poor finish. Our greatest opportunities are often waiting right behind the obstacle that shields our view.last_img read more

Unfamiliar, but nice: Simona Halep back to defend French Open title
