  • Liza Minnelli Adorably Tries (and Fails) To Get In on the All-Star Oscars Selfie

    first_imgThe most fun thing about last night’s Oscars ceremony? Aside from Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Bobby Lopez’s sweet rhyming speech and John Travolta’s ridiculous Idina Menzel name flub, we’ve gotta give the prize to host Ellen DeGeneres’ all-star selfie. Watching Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacey, Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper and more mega-stars (oh, and also Lupita Nyongo’s brother) try to cram into the cell phone shot was seriously adorable. But what was even more seriously adorable is what was going on behind the photo—namely, 5’4” Tony winner Liza Minnelli standing on her tiptoes to try to reach her head past Brad Pitt’s. Come back to Broadway, Liza! We promise we’ll never, ever push you out of a selfie. View Commentslast_img read more

  • Good Times and Suffering at the 2015 Holiday Lake 50K

    first_imgJohn Robinson faces the ups and downs – literally and metaphorically – of ultra racing at Holiday Lake State Park in Virginia. About 6 miles into the race there’s a creek crossing where feet immersion is mandatory. The air temp is a bracing 18 degrees, so the ice water is especially invigorating. I splash through the calf-deep pool abreast of Josh, with Matt just behind. We’re feeling good and chatting about this and that, while keeping up what I’d call a respectable pace. Conditions are great — the course is predominantly smooth, rolling singletrack and it’s dry, occasional creek crossings notwithstanding. Yeah, we’re going to cruise this thing. It’s an hour later and I’m not feeling so much that “we” — as in I — will “cruise” the course today. Josh and Matt are slipping away from me — on a good day I can hang with them and I truly thought that this was going to be one of those days. I’m having a hard time keeping pace. Others also slowly gain on me and pass, often running with me for a few minutes before pulling ahead. They’re all friendly, the camaraderie of ultra trail racing being no exception here at the Holiday Lake 50K.I’m competing in the twentieth running of the event, an ultra held at Virginia’s Holliday Lake State Park. I had arrived last night in time for race check-in and to get my Honda Element situated for its role as camper for the night. The weather forecast was for clear and cold overnight, down to 15 degrees or so, but I would surely be cozy in the car with my assortment of various pads and sleeping bags. I had gotten everything set up just right, laying out race things for today’s early am start. Shoes, socks, shorts with race number pinned on just so, favorite technical race tee, fleece zip neck, Grindstone 100 beanie cap, thin gloves, Gorilla tape for my nipples. And stashed in my hydration pack along with the 1.5-liter water bladder were my super light Hoodini jacket and a few Cliff bars and gels. And some toilet paper of course.Race director David Horton led the shenanigans at the pre-race dinner and briefing at race headquarters, the park’s 4H Center. Lots of excited faces shared anticipation and laughs over voluminous plates of delicious spaghetti and lasagna. Friends old and new caught up with each other, and all looked forward to today’s race. I got to sleep pretty early, hunkered down in the Element, after my requisite few-minutes-at-least of reading, this time from a book on nineteenth century polar exploration. “The HL 50K is a relatively easy ultra,” you might hear a veteran say, due to the rolling non-mountainous nature of the terrain of the Virginia piedmont course. Whatever. I’d say don’t fall for that line, because all you’ll hear is the “easy” part, and then you might be getting into a little trouble. The first time I ran the race there was 8 inches of snow on the course, and the nature of said precipitation changed diabolically throughout the day, from hard crust to muddy slop. It was miserable. And even when it’s dry…well it’s not so easy.The race started at 6:30 am in the cold dark, bringing to a close the chaos of the previous hour. I had risen and quickly dressed in the freezing Element with that familiar what-am-I-doing-here feeling. I choked down a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and forced a half liter of water. Then bathroom business. And second-guessing my choice of clothing. Stumbling to the starting line, we raised an off-key version of the national anthem and the race was on. Yea! Headlamps, essential for the first several miles, bob-bobbed off into the dawn. I’m slogging along now, alone and looking forward to Aid Station 3 where Hannah and her cheerful cohorts will encourage me with their great smiles, not to mention their candy. My water bladder tube is frozen solid and I haven’t been able to drink from it since pulling it out of my womb-like sleeping bag early this morning. So I carry an inaccessible bag of water on my back, and hydrate at aid stations. Oh well.The Holiday Lake 50K course consists of a 16-mile loop which returns the racers to the starting point where they then reverse the route to arrive back at the same place for the finish. It works very well. By the time I arrive at the turnaround point my wife Marybeth and son Taylor are there to greet me and send me back, “inbound” to the finish now. Race director Horton exclaims that I’m the first “old man,” that is age 50+. But no, that’s not true — my “old man” friend Matt is a few minutes ahead of me at this point. That gap would grow as the race wore on and I wore out. Way to go Matt! So it’s working out to be not my best race, this “easy” 50k. Heehee! Nevertheless I take in the beauty of the course -the orange glow sunrise was amazing- and I make sure to appreciate the folks out there with me, volunteers and racers alike.An out-and-back course like HL allows each racer to pass face-to-face everyone else at some point. It is always cool for me to see those fast front-runners on their inbound return trip, and I calculate about how far behind them I am and how that distance will only increase as the miles to the finish unfurl. Holding solid to first place is Shaun Pope, who offers me a hearty, “good job!” as he trots by. In the small, eccentric world of ultra running camaraderie is affirming, and encouragement and inspiration is freely shared by all. I certainly get a further morale boost, along the beautiful Lakeshore Trail part of the course particularly, as I pass friends and we exchange brief words of connection and encouragement, including of course the occasional “Hey loser!”Returning to Aid Station 3 I fuel on banana and what looks like pieces of Milky Way. Good, but actually I’m not that hungry and don’t have my usual mid-race appetite. I head out again feigning competence and optimism and accompanied by another racer…hey! it’s my buddy Jeff. What a nice surprise. He just turned 50 last year and I’ve welcomed him into the Grand Master category. We run together for an hour talking, covering a broad array of topics, before I send him on ahead of me. I’m having trouble shifting into a higher gear and I can’t hang with Jeff; he’s strong and relaxed and now he’s disappearing around the bend up ahead. Go Jeff!The remainder of the race I feel like I’m slowly grinding to a halt. I just hope the finish comes before then. Every few minutes someone passes me. They give me encouragement and rocket on. At least it seems to me that they “rocket on”. I’m not overtaking anyone myself; my machinery is breaking down. A bit of bonus discomfort occurs when only a few miles from the finish I have to succumb to the urge to “go behind a tree,” and not just for a quick leak. I’d hoped I could make it to the finish before that. Oh well.The sun is shining brightly now, the sky brilliant blue as I emerge from the trees and onto the hard surface road to gallop the remaining .7 mile of the course. What’s that I feel a spring in my step! From within my weary body wells up a fount of freshness and I virtually fly down the road and through the finish chute and under the banner to the generous cheers and congratulations of the folks gathered there. I’m forty-ninth place overall out of what turns out to be 236 finishers. My time is 5:04:48. I could pout that I coulda shoulda run faster and stronger and finished higher up in the standings but you know what? It feels so good to be living in the moment, as fully as I can, surrounded by cheery -ok nutty- souls with warm hearts on this chilly gorgeous day that I’m just -above all- feeling super grateful.Relaxing in my post race reverie I see my friend Michelle approaching the finish line. It’s her first ultra and she’s ecstatic to be finishing it. She made it. I make my way to her to offer a hug and my congratulations, passing on to her what so many have conveyed to me, the bond, that is, of a kindred spirit.last_img read more

  • Voters to Decide Replacement for Skelos Seat

    first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York By Jamie Franchi, Rashed Mian and Timothy BolgerSouthwestern Nassau County voters have a fresh choice of New York State Senate candidates for the first time in three decades during a special election Tuesday to replace their disgraced former senator.Freshman State Assemb. Todd Kaminsky (D-Long Beach), Republican attorney Christopher McGrath of Hewlett and Lawrence Seth Hirsh, an accountant from Valley Stream running on the Green Party line, are vying for the seat held for 30 years by Dean Skelos, the ex-State Senate Republican majority leader from Rockville Centre, until he was expelled from office upon his conviction on federal corruption charges in December. The election is the same day as New York’s Republican and Democratic presidential primaries, which is expected to impact turnout.“I think it’s going to be a close race,” Nassau County Democratic Chairman Jay Jacobs said. “I think we’ll either win by a couple or lose by a couple, and the determining factor will be not just the presidential primary turnout but also the drop off—meaning how many people come out to vote for president but choose not to vote in the State Senate special election. I think that’s going to be the deciding factor.”Skelos’ and his son Adam’s conviction, which they are appealing, has catapulted ethics reform to the chief issue in the race. But, this being Long Island, education funding also is among the top issues the candidates are debating. The result of the race could help sway the balance of power in the State Senate, which is in GOP control with the help of six breakaway Democrats.Kaminsky, a former federal prosecutor, backs banning outside income for lawmakers. McGrath, a first-time candidate, proposed setting eight-year term limits for state elected officials. Hirsh, who unsuccessfully ran for a Nassau County legislative seat last year, called for publicly financed elections. All three support stripping pensions from elected officials convicted of corruption.Public education advocates have accused McGrath of supporting the expansion of charter schools, which the critics say siphons money from public schools. They point to New Yorkers for a Balanced Albany, a pro-charter school political action committee, funding anti-Kaminsky campaign ads in the run up to the special election.“Now he’s indebted to them,” said Jeannette Deutermann, an anti-Common Core activist, said, referring to McGrath. “What do you think’s going to happen when he gets into office?”McGrath denies the allegations.“I have not taken one dime from charter schools,” McGrath said. “I will never give one dime to charter schools at the expense of public schools.”McGrath counters that if Kaminsky wins, he would help return the State Senate to a Democratic majority for the first time since 2009, when the legislature approved the controversial MTA Payroll Tax.“If I lose this race, the balance of power will shift,” McGrath said. “The Senate should be maintained by Republican control.”Regardless, the winner of the special election will only serve the remaining eight-and-a-half months of Skelos’ term and will be up for re-election in November. The current state legislative session ends in June, leaving the winner just two months to negotiate legislation, not including any special legislative sessions that may be called in the second half of the year.The ninth State Senate district includes the southwest corner of Nassau from Elmont and West Hempstead to the North, Rockville Centre and Island Park to the east, the New York City line to the west and all of Long Beach Island to the south.last_img read more

  • Jakarta still struggles with virus despite improved health facilities

    first_imgThe emergence of new COVID-19 cases in Jakarta, the first national epicenter of the outbreak, is showing no signs of slowing down despite claims that the capital was far more prepared for the disease thanks to improvements in its healthcare system.Jakarta now has 67 referral hospitals to treat COVID-19 patients, with a total capacity of 4,555 beds and 659 intensive care (ICU) rooms, according to the city’s health agency.It has come a long way from having only eight referral hospitals with 904 beds and 80 ICUs in March when the first two cases were officially announced in Indonesia. In the early days of the epidemic, hospitals were operating beyond their capacity and patients had to wait for hours to receive treatment; many were even rejected.Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan has said that in March and April, the city would not have been able to treat 6,000 patients at the same time — considered the worst-case scenario — because it did not have an “adequate system”.But the capital has made notable improvements in its healthcare system, having sped up the referral process and monitoring of medical workers and inventory.“[The improvements] helped speed up treatment for patients and ensured that everyone coming into our health facilities would get fast and proper treatment without a long wait,” Anies told The Jakarta Post in a recent interview. One innovation that helped with the improvement is the information dashboard on dkitanggapcovid.id, which integrates data from the 67 referral hospitals, said Sulung Mulia Putra, head of referral health services at the Jakarta Health Agency.The monitoring system, accessible only to health agency officials and hospitals, has improved the monitoring of COVID-19 patients, medical workers and availability of personal protective equipment in hospitals, he said.The improved system was not without flaws when it was launched in April, he added, largely because of hospitals’ limited capacity.“Patient inflow was exceptionally high [at the time].”But the system’s effects on hospitals were increasingly seen.Dian Ekowati, president director of city-owned Tarakan Hospital in Central Jakarta, said the system helped the hospital quickly refer patients to other facilities when it had yet to install a dedicated operating room for COVID-19 patients.And while the idea of integrating hospital data had been around for the past few years, it was only after COVID-19 hit the country that hospitals became more disciplined in reporting or sharing their information, said Mohammad Syahril, president director of the Sulianti Saroso Infectious Diseases Hospital in North Jakarta.He said it used to be common to refer patients to other hospitals without first informing the destination facility, which would delay treatment.“They were either full or didn’t have the [necessary] equipment, so patients would have to be referred to other hospitals.”But with the onset of the outbreak, there was no more room for delays as officials worked to quickly suppress death rates.Jakarta has officially recorded 658 COVID-19 deaths, but the probable number of total deaths reached 2,152 on Monday, according to data from corona.jakarta.go.id.The city health agency and hospitals have started evaluating existing referral systems, namely the Referral Integrated System (Sisrute) and the Integrated Emergency Management System (SPGDT) that was developed by the Health Ministry, Syahril said.With these platforms, hospitals must first submit information on the patient as well as a reason for their referral to other facilities. Then, they wait, he said.But now, hospitals regularly update data on patients, human resources and the availability of medical equipment through the ministry’s RS Online app.The city’s COVID-19 dashboard has been integrated with RS Online, said Sulung from the Jakarta Health Agency.The Indonesian Hospital Association’s (PERSI) Jakarta chapter chairman, Koesmedi Priharto, warned against complacency now that the city was forging “new norms” rather than ushering in a “new normal”.He said COVID-19 still left so much to be learned, while standard operating procedures for the treatment of the disease continued to evolve.As one solution, Koesmedi urged the Jakarta administration to start mapping hospitals for COVID-19 patients and those for patients seeking other forms of treatment, so that the latter would not be worried about seeking medical attention.“Prepare hospitals for non-COVID-19 patients, because they’ll have to carry out triage [and emergency assessment for sorting patients] upfront,” he said.“If patients have COVID-19 symptoms, then the hospital must refer them to the [appropriate facility]. In this case, preparing a referral system becomes very important.”Sulung said his agency did not rule out the possibility of improving its existing monitoring system for hospitals under its authority, which includes facilities reserved for non-COVID-19 patients.Topics :last_img read more

  • Ministry prepares regulation on small businesses to implement jobs law

    first_imgSmall businesses, which contribute more than 60 percent to the Indonesian economy, have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.Around 60 percent of Indonesian small businesses might have to shut down in six months due to pandemic restrictions, according to a survey of 147 small businesses between June and July by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).Teten said draft discussions would involve consultations with experts, business incubators, universities, businesses and associations of MSMEs and cooperatives.“We plan to issue only one PP that regulates everything,” Teten added.According to Article 93 of the latest draft, small businesses will be able to use their business assets as collateral to obtain loans.Teten said that MSMEs often fell short in providing the collateral required to obtain working capital or investment from banks.“MSMEs on average do not have assets. Their place is usually not strategic and their means of production are usually modest machineries,” he said.According to Article 91 of the omnibus law, small businesses can also get leeway in accessing a business registration number (NIB) online, depending on the risk of the business.The business registration number aims to integrate business permits, the Indonesian National Standards (SNI) and halal certification. The minister claimed that it would also cover distribution permits from the Food and Drug Monitoring Agency (BPOM).However, if the business poses medium to high risks on health, safety or the environment, small businesses will also need to obtain a standard certification or permit.With the omnibus bill, the ministry will also run an annual update of a single database on MSMEs, which it plans to use in the government’s decision-making process, according to the ministry’s secretary, Rully Indrawan.“We have proposed this since the start of preparations for the 2021 [state budget] for that matter,” said Rully. “The [House of Representatives] also supports the presence of a better database.”The secretary added that the ministry was planning to offer an export-oriented customs incentive for small businesses.Ikhsan Ingratubun, chairman of the MSMEs Association (Akumindo), welcomed the jobs law, saying that the relaxation of requirements on licensing, free halal certification and partnerships with bigger enterprises was in line with the interests of small businesses.However, the association is still waiting for further details on whether it will be easier to obtain a distribution permit.”The distribution permit [process] can’t be similar to that of big companies. There must be an affirmative policy,” Ikhsan told The Jakarta Post in a phone interview on Friday.Meanwhile, Center for Indonesian Policy Studies (CIPS) researcher Siti Alifah Dina stated that there should be clarity on the articles that could potentially have multiple interpretations.“The clarity is needed for development programs and aid for each business unit, in accordance with its scale and sector,” a CIPS statement published on Thursday reads. The President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo administration aims for the recently passed omnibus law to cut red tape and attract more investment in the country by simplifying business permits and reforming labor regulations.It is now preparing a regulation to implement the law, despite widespread opposition from labor unions, environmental groups and students over labor and environmental issues.Read also: Govt defends jobs law despite oppositionFor MSMEs, the omnibus law is expected to solve common issues like access to financing and licensing, according to Teten. The Cooperatives and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) Ministry is working on the details of a draft government regulation (RPP) on small businesses as a follow-up to the recently passed Job Creation Law.Ten issues related to small businesses from the jobs law will be further detailed in the government regulation, according to the ministry, including cooperatives’ business activities, sharia-compliant cooperatives, micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), business licensing and integrated MSME management.“Our target is to finish the RPP by November,” Cooperatives and SMEs Minister Teten Masduki said in a virtual press conference on Thursday. “We have set the timeline and we will involve 10 stakeholders to work on this RPP.”The draft government regulation is expected to also detail issues over the relaxation of registration requirements, financing, intellectual property, exports and raw and auxiliary material imports for small businesses. Moreover, it is expected to cover regulations on MSME development through public procurement.center_img Topics :last_img read more

  • Governor Wolf Orders Commonwealth Flags at Half-Staff to Honor Pennsylvania Philanthropist H.F. “Gerry” Lenfest

From the arts to education to journalism, Gerry understood that the key to building a strong economy and community were strong civic institutions that enriched the lives of all citizens.“Put simply, Gerry was a great human being and an even better citizen. Frances and I offer our deepest condolences to the Lenfest family and ask all Pennsylvanians to join us in remembering and celebrating the life of Gerry Lenfest. We will miss him.”The Commonwealth flag shall be lowered immediately, Monday, August 6, 2018, through sunset on the day of interment.

  • There are great pockets of value in the market you just need to know where to look

    first_img5 Countess St, sold for $197,000. Picture: realestate.com.auDURING the back half of May I have been as busy as a one legged tap dancer.It seems like everyone has waited until after the April public holiday feast to start their auctions. In the last two weeks of the month, I will call 70 auctions.I am still seeing great pockets of value in the market, but it’s not always in the places people are looking.In fact, it’s because people aren’t looking there that the value exists.The cheapest I’ve seen so far has been $197,000 for a house at 5 Countess St, Eastern Heights, at the Ray White Ipswich auctions last Friday.A quick snapshot for those looking for value, we are talking about a 759 sqm block, a zoning that is favourable to townhouses and close to local schools.The bidding opened at about $100,000 and most of the five registered bidders battled it out before the property sold under the hammer.Ipswich is still offering great value and from my conversations with Deanne Ramsay from Ray White Ipswich the vacancy rate is low and there are active tenants in the market.Around the inner city of Brisbane there have been some great sales too.I sold a beautifully renovated home at 122 Alexandra Rd, Clayfield. Presented to perfection. The home offered an amazing open plan which spilled effortlessly out to the outdoor area where it looked like they’d taken a hair brush to the blades of grass!More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home4 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor4 hours agoA massive crowd was in attendance with three bidders battling it out and the property sold under the hammer for $1.75 million.122 Alexandra Rd, Clayfield sold under the hammer.The sub $2 million market for a finished home in the sought after Brisbane inner city is also faring quite well. This is mainly because inner city unrenovated houses are hotter than a seatbelt in summer. Build costs for high end properties are getting quoted at $3000 per metre and when you add those prices together it’s cheaper to buy than build.However, it’s the $2 million plus market that I think is offering some value. The prestige market started to show some green shoots early this year with some high end thumpers selling and record prices being reported. But that market is best described as warm as opposed to hot.I still feel this is where a lot of value exists in the market. $2 million is such a psychological benchmark for buyers and sellers. Once you get past it as a buyer the competition thins out dramatically.Value in a market comes from finding the places where competition doesn’t exist.Value in the market comes from finding places where there is little competition, according to auctioneer Haesley Cush.Real estate is largely a confidence game and competition breeds confidence. It’s the well researched buyers who make offers in the absence of competition that tend to find the best buys. The risk when making a low offer or bid on a property is that the owner will take it, so at a fair price there’s no risk. If they won’t it’s a simple ‘no’. If they will, then you are rewarded for your tenacity. It doesn’t sound that risky to me!I hear people complain regularly about the cost of housing, but have they really looked? Are they informed and are they making offers? If the answer is no, then they need to hold their tongue, work out their budget and what they want. Then head out to the areas that meet their requirements, not the reported hot spots or places they are familiar with. They might be surprised where they end up and what they end up with.last_img read more
