Get an Eyeful of Indecent as Paula Vogel’s New Play Begins Rehearsals for Broadway

first_img Related Shows The cast of Paula Vogel’s Indecent celebrated the first day of rehearsal by meeting the press and posing for pics. The new play, directed by Rebecca Taichman, is based on true events and examines the 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s God of Vengeance. The provocative drama was shut down after the police charged cast members with obscenity, partly because the piece depicted a lesbian relationship. Starring Katrina Lenk, Mimi Lieber, Max Gordon Moore, Tom Nelis, Steven Rattazi, Richard Topol, Adina Verson, Lisa Gutkin and Aaron Halva, Indecent begins performances at the Cort Theatre on April 4 and opens on April 18.

Water testing near Essex and Winooski sites test clean for PFOA

first_imgVermont Business Magazine Governor Peter Shumlin released today preliminary test results from private water supplies surrounding two former wire-coating facilities in Essex and Winooski.  All samples showed no presence of the potentially harmful chemicals PFOA and PFOS. The two sites are former locations of local wire coating and cable extrusion companies Belden Wire & Cable (Essex) and Super-Temp Wire and Cable (Winooski). An Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) contractor took five samples from residential wells near the former Belden Wire & Cable site in Essex, and five samples from wells owned by businesses near the former Super-Temp site in Winooski. All test results were non-detect for PFOA.The two former facilities represent two of eleven sites identified in a statewide plan announced by the Governor in March(link is external) to proactively test water in locations where there could be concern for elevated levels of PFOA. The wire coating industry, semi-conductor industry, and locations where fire-fighting foam was used repeatedly were identified as places that should be tested.The test results released today mean that water supplies sampled at four out of the eleven sites outlined in the statewide plan and tested by the EPA have now tested clean for PFOA. Testing of water supplies around Pittsford Fire Academy (Pittsford) and Phoenix Wire (South Hero) also returned results where PFOA was not detected.last_img read more

Blood drives at six VSECU branches in June and July will benefit the American Red Cross

first_imgVermont Business Magazine VSECU, a member-owned cooperative and not for profit credit union for everybody in Vermont, has launched its semi-annual blood drive series for the American Red Cross. The credit union will host six blood drives at branch locations around the state throughout June and into early July. The semi-annual blood drive series launched last year and has generated strong community support and participation. During two drives across VSECU branches in 2015, 144 units of blood were collected. Every unit has the potential to save three lives, meaning the 2015 drives collected enough blood to save as many as 432 lives. VSECU aims to exceed that total in 2016, as part of its commitment to positively impact the communities it serves. The blood drive program was initiated by Abbi Kiley, VSECU’s call center manager, while she was a member of the American Red Cross NH-VT Board of Directors. As an employee-inspired event, VSECU has seen significant participation from its employees, including many first-time donors and blood donation veterans. “I gave blood for the first time at a VSECU blood drive early last year, and have been trying to donate every two months since then. I had always wanted to give blood but never took the opportunity to do so. Now I’ve reached one gallon donated through eight donations,” said Nashoba Hidaka, a technical support specialist for VSECU. “I am happy to donate to give back to people in need. It’s nice to know I am helping someone.””I have given blood 104 times, which is 13 gallons,” added Cheryl Pickreign, Williston Branch Manager for VSECU. “It only takes about an hour from start to finish, which is such a short amount of time to help people who may need blood. We’ve all lost loved ones and I always think that my little donation may have saved a life for another family.”The blood drives will be held in American Red Cross blood mobiles at VSECU branch locations across Vermont. The blood mobiles are equipped with all of the necessary equipment and supplies for sterile blood collection. Those interested in donating blood can make reservations with the American Red Cross(link is external) or stop in at the times and locations listed below. VSECU blood drives will be held on the following dates and locations between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.:June 6: VSECU Bennington Branch at 194 North Street June 9: VSECU Rutland Branch at 72 Seward RoadJune 28: VSECU Williston Branch at 1755 Essex RoadJune 29: VSECU Berlin Branch at 365 Paine Turnpike NorthJune 30: VSECU St. Johnsbury Branch at 1036 Memorial DriveJuly 1: VSECU Brattleboro Branch at 499 Canal StreetAbout VSECUVSECU is a member-owned cooperative and not for profit credit union for everybody who lives and works in Vermont, offering a full range of affordable financial products and services to its member-owners.

Athletes are constantly fighting for position over a short, twisting course.“There are jumps, crashes, frustration, tears of disappointment and tears of joy, all happening right in front of the crowd and cameras over the course of 40 minutes of racing. I think it’s great, and we are excited to show it off to a global audience this year in Molveno.”www.xterraplanet.com Relatedlast_img read more

Savage Universal to host ribbon-cutting for new Chandler headquarters

first_imgSavage Universal, manufacturer of quality paper and accessory products for the photographic industry, will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Savage Building, a 64,030 square foot facility that will be the new headquarters of Savage Universal Corp. The new office and warehouse facility is located at 2050 S. Stearman in Chandler.At 2 p.m. on Thursday May 8 Savage Universal Corporation will hold the event to celebrate the raising of the walls of their new facility. Known as the Savage Building, the facility is being built by LGE Design Build, the Valley’s leading design build contractor and includes office, manufacturing and distribution facilities.Savage Universal envisions the new facility as a home for the company that will meets its current needs and operations. Located in the Chandler Airpark, the building will be a state of the art manufacturing and distribution center. The employees are also looking forward to the new location which is centralized in the east valley and is located next to newly developed shopping centers and restaurants. Savage Universal executives attending the ceremony will include Hayward Richard Pressman, Chairman of the Board; Sylvester Hank, President; Richard Reiser, Chief Operating Officer; and the Savage staff. Also attending will be representatives from the city of Chandler, LGE Design Build and Bank of Arizona.“The company founded by my father, Mac Pressman, in 1937 has continued to grow and prosper while located in the friendly business environment that exists in Chandler,” said Richard Pressman. “The new facility will reflect greater efficiencies in converting and distribution required in today’s business environment.”Hank added, “The photographic business has undergone substantial fundamental changes in recent years requiring Savage to adjust the manner in which it conducts business. Our new facility will help us meet those changing needs and maintain our industry leadership.” Both Pressman and Hank expressed optimism for the future of Savage and Pressman noted, “the new facility will upgrade the company’s efficiency in conducting business and allow us to better serve our customers.”Pressman added that management felt it was time for Savage Universal to upgrade its’ facilities, and added that the new facility will allow Savage to address the changing needs of the photographic backdrop and studio photography equipment industry. “We have been in our existing building for 14 years, and we needed a new facility that conforms to operations as they are now and will be in the future, not the way they were a decade ago,” he said. “We have fewer, but much larger customers now due to consolidation in the photo industry, and we need a building that allows us to address the new market we are in. LGE helped us achieve that.”According to Reiser, the choice of LGE for their project was an easy one for Savage Universal. “LGE has a reputation for dependability, and David Sellers is extremely knowledgeable about his industry,” Reiser said. “David has a great vision for how to make the building meet our needs now and down the road. LGE was at the top of our list all along.”Sellers, the president of LGE Design Build, stated that the project allowed LGE to showcase several areas his company has added in recent years to provide a more full-service approach for its clients.“The Savage project allows us to show how we can take a mixed use project like this combining office, manufacturing and distribution space and make it both functional and beautiful,” Sellers said. “Our interior design group did a great job of making all the elements blend together into one seamless unit that is truly eye-catching. They also provided a design that was totally functional for Savage, allowing them to meet the needs of a very specific industry. This was a very fun project to develop.”last_img read more

What Kind Of Stress Eater Are You?

first_imgThe Huffington Post: What are your eating habits in the face of stress? Do you eat more under duress, or are you the sort of person who loses your appetite?A new study shows that stress eaters tend to eat more when stressed, but actually eat less after a positive experience, while “skippers” — those who don’t eat during stressful moments — tend to consume more after a positive experience.“These findings challenge the simplistic view that stress eaters need to regulate their eating behavior to prevent weight gain,” study researcher Gudrun Sproesser, of the University of Konstanz in Germany, said in a statement. “Both skippers and munchers have their ‘soft spot’ for food, they just show different compensatory eating patterns in response to positive and negative situations.”For the study, published in the journal Psychological Science, researchers subjected study participants to either a positive or negative feedback experience. To induce this experience, they had participants video chat with a stranger partner before meeting him or her in person.Read the whole story: The Huffington Post More of our Members in the Media >last_img read more
