Tickets Now on Sale for Steven Levenson’s If I Forget

first_img View Comments Tickets are now available for Steven Levenson’s If I Forget off-Broadway. The production is scheduled to begin previews on January 19, 2017 at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre.In July of 2000, immediately following the failed Israeli-Palestinian peace talks at Camp David, three adult siblings and their families gather in a suburb of DC for their father, Lou’s, 75th birthday. Middle son Michael, a Jewish studies professor, has recently finished the manuscript he hopes will push him into tenure. Dedicated to his father, a Jewish WWII veteran, the book argues an incendiary point about American Jews, Israel, and the Holocaust—but Lou hasn’t said a word about it, leaving Michael uneasy. And as the visit continues, it becomes clear that Lou isn’t the only member of the family leaving things unspoken. Money, marriage, and career pressures bear down, quickly turning familial responsibility into resentment.The limited Roundabout Underground engagement is scheduled to run through April 16.

Weekend Pick: SUP at the NOC

first_imgUgh, summer! The days are long, the sun is out, the kids are out of school, the living is easy…except that it is so dang hot. Motivating to get outside and run, bike, or hike in the heat of the day is a real chore. If only there was a way to get outside, get a good workout, AND beat the heat. Well, there is: Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP). SUP is one of the fastest growing activities on the water, and is taking the outdoor world by storm. To be honest, it may be the perfect activity for summertime in the Blue Ridge, combining water, workout, and sun.The best part though is the versatility. SUP can be used strictly as an exercise tool with the act of paddling giving your arms, back, legs, and core a solid pump as you cruise across flat water. It can also be used strictly as a leisure tool, as you paddle around the lake, checking out coves, wildlife, and taking the occasional dip. If you want to get a little more adventurous, you can take it out on some Class I-II whitewater and really challenge yourself. Some pros are even trying to run rapids up to Class IV on an SUP, which is pushing the limits for sure.Get a taste of what SUP is all about this weekend by heading over to the Nantahala Outdoor Center and getting set up with a rental. The NOC is the perfect spot to start your SUP habit: they offer clinics every weekend and the paddling pros will get you set up with the right board. You can get warmed up by paddling around nearby Lake Fontana, then move onto running the Nantahala or try surfing the wave that runs through the center of NOC.One stop, a full range of SUP options. What are you waiting for?View Larger Maplast_img read more

Credit union mixing it up with small business owners

first_imgLast month, $320 million/26,000-member Belvoir Federal Credit Union, Woodbridge, Va., hosted its first Small Business Mixer for local business owners to network and learn.“I planned the event with a conference-style theme for an afterhours mixer,” says Amy McConnell, marketing and public relations manager. “We had elegant cocktail tables spread throughout the lobby (with minimal seating to encourage networking), vendor booths, catered food and beverage, along with innovative technology.”The credit union took advantage of the branch lobby’s multiple screen options to broadcast PowerPoints and even a video showcasing the CU’s business services.“Since the event was held in our branch lobby, we enabled every computer monitor, TV screen, remote teller station remote screens, and iPad (which were on the cocktail tables) to project the same presentation simultaneously. In all, we had 17 screens that initially displayed an animated welcome PowerPoint presentation, which showcased the agenda, vendors/partners, and our door prize sponsors. Then, the speaker’s slides were displayed when he was presenting. After the presenter finished, another animated PowerPoint presentation was shown with the remaining items on the agenda, a reminder to stop by vendor booths, and another thank-you to the sponsors for the door prizes. continue reading » 11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

The CUInsight Experience podcast: Bert J. Hash Jr. – Dig deeper (#97)

first_imgThank you for tuning in to episode 96 of The CUInsight Experience podcast with your host, Randy Smith, co-founder of CUInsight.com. This episode is brought to you by Trellance transforming data into actionable insight for credit unions from coast to coast.My guest on today’s show is Mr. Bert J. Hash Jr., the former President, and CEO at MECU in Baltimore. Bert is very busy in his retirement and services on many boards and committees in his community and around the world. Bert is on the ACCOSCA Foundation board and active in the DE community in Africa. We talk about leadership, board relations, community involvement, mentoring, and what we can do better as credit unions, and so much more.Bert shares why working with ACCOSCA is so important and what US credit unions can learn from credit unions on the African continent with relevance and maintaining a healthy pace of change in technological advances. Bert also shares the need for credit unions to the ‘unbanked’ and those who can truly benefit from services this community offers. Listen, as Bert discusses the effects of the global pandemic on large groups of members, including people of color and middle class citizens combating systems of financial health inequity. Bert talks about what inspired him to take the position at MECU, the various boards and committees he serves, and how getting involved with these organizations was pivotal to his career. During the rapid-fire questions, we learn that Bert was one of the top three students who would succeed after high school. Bert wanted to work in mathematics but changed his major to business after 6 months of schooling. Giving back has become more important as he’s gotten older and material things have gotten less. When Bert has a day off, he and his wife go to their place in Virginia called Serenity to relax and unwind and spend time together. This is a great conversation with an even greater man.

Therefore, such a festival is an excellent opportunity for producers to present wines and varieties of their region. It is a well-known fact that modern caterers must have a large selection of wines of different varieties in their wine lists, and this event will help them in their selection. ” Zadar Wine Festival is an ideal place for minglanje caterers and winemakers – experience from the previous two festivals shows that many caterers in Zadar will choose their favorites for their wine lists.

Pollard granted No Objection certificate

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados, CMC – West Indies allrounder Kieron Pollard has been granted a No Objection Certificate (NOC) to play in the upcoming Ram Slam T20 competition in South Africa, the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) confirmed on Tuesday.The confirmation from WICB president Michael Muirhead contradicts an earlier report from ESPN cricinfo stating that Pollard was denied a NOC for the tournament starting on Friday.During an interview on Massy United Insurance’s Line & Length Network, Muirhead said it was never the Board’s intention not to grant Pollard an NOC, but rather explain to him why the process on this occasion was taking longer than usual.“It was not denying him any NOC it was explaining to him why it was taking longer. Normally we would have responded so in seven days he would have gotten it,” explained Muirhead.“But I think it went over. But before the seven days expired I said let me explain to him why it is taking a little longer time and it is because we have written to all the boards , the presidents and CEOs”.WICB’s letter to presidents and CEOs of all the ICC Full Member boards has notified them of its new policy to impose a 20 percent levy on the contract fees of its players taking part in T20 tournaments overseas.Cricinfo reported that Muirhead’s letter to Pollard had informed him that permission would not be granted to him until various boards featuring Caribbean players in their Domestic T20 tournaments agree with WICB’s new policy.Muirhead appears to be suggesting that the NOC granted to Pollard, who signed a two-year contract with Cape Cobras last season, is conditional.“We are awaiting a response so we know the timing that’s on it so if we did not receive it from them we would respond to Kieron and provide the NOC weather it be conditional… with the conditions that we explained to him that we are expecting Cricket South Africa to honour a release fee or we are going to defer it,” Muirhead told Line & Length Network.“It’s something on the table and we want to negociate with it. That’s why it is dynamic; it is just the point in time that we responded to Kieron”.last_img read more
