The American Repertory Theater announces the lineup for its upcoming season Related Next month, the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University will bring Kate Hamill’s adaptation of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” to the Leventritt Shrub and Vine Garden. Staged by the Actors’ Shakespeare Project (ASP), the award-winning theater company that brought “Fog x Macbeth” to the Arboretum in October, it is the last play of ASP’s season, and a fitting bookend to the haunting “Macbeth.”Though “Pride and Prejudice” is usually performed indoors, the gardens of Pemberley — the estate of the heroine’s suitor, Mr. Darcy — loom large. Elizabeth Bennet, the object of Darcy’s conflicted affections, is impressed by the openness of Pemberley’s landscape, a “place where natural beauty had been so little counteracted by an awkward taste,” and the gardens go a long way toward bringing her to reconsider her initial refusal of Mr. Darcy’s hand.In Austen’s time, the classically ordered Renaissance gardens were evolving a more natural look. The Arboretum’s “Pride and Prejudice” will take place in the more formal Leventritt Shrub and Vine Garden, but its proximity to the “naturalized” collections surrounding it provide the background to Hamill’s contemporary take on this classic.Hamill’s adaptation, which debuted in 2017 at the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, brings its own unique energy to the garden. Fully half of the cast are female or gender-nonconforming, with men acting women’s parts and women men’s. And despite the comedy, the awkwardness of finding love holds as true in the 21st century as it did in the 19th.“Pride and Prejudice” will be performed June 23 in the Leventritt Garden. It is free and open to the public. The Harvard community celebrates the arts in all its forms Step, sing, and dance in time All the world’s a stage

By Dialogo May 03, 2011 NATO has come forward in a very positive way to enforce the no-fly zone over Libya and protect Libyan citizens from the Moammar Gadhafi regime, Navy Adm. Mike Mullen said in Iraq on 22 April. The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff also told service members serving with U.S. Division Center in Baghdad that “the international consensus is that Gadhafi has got to go.” NATO is in charge of enforcing the U.N. Security Council resolution to protect Libyan civilians, Mullen said, adding that he is pleased the alliance stepped forward to lead the operation. Regime change is not a part of the NATO mission, and the U.N. resolution does not address it, Mullen said, but it remains to be seen whether the Libyan dictator will step down. “The long-term political end-state is to have [Gadhafi] gone,” he said. “Globally, the guy is a pariah, and every single action the vast majority of countries are taking are going to continue to put the squeeze on him until he’s gone. Is [Gadhafi] going to figure that out? I don’t know.” The NATO operation “is certainly moving toward a stalemate,” Mullen said, as neither rebel forces nor Gadhafi’s forces can win a decisive edge, and tough fighting continues in Misrata and Ajdabiyah. Not surprisingly, the chairman said, Gadhafi’s forces have adapted their tactics. They are closing with rebel forces, dispersing themselves among civilians and using civilians as a shield. “It’s a tougher fight than it was at the beginning,” the chairman said. “At the same time, we have ‘attritted’ somewhere between 30 and 40 percent of his main ground force capabilities,” Mullen said. “Those will continue to go away over time.” Mullen stressed the international focus on ousting the Gadhafi regime, noting that members of the Arab League support the military action in Libya. “This is the first time that I’m aware of where the Arab League has voted for something like a no-fly zone,” he said. But the international focus only highlights that at the end of the day, the Libyan people must decide what Libya needs, the chairman said. “In all these countries where this turmoil is taking place, what is important to remember and what is obvious is this is about the people of these countries, and we should respect that as they try to imagine their own future,” he said. Though France and Great Britain have said they are sending advisors to aid the Libyan rebels, there is no chance the United States will follow suit, Mullen said. “The president has been very clear: No boots on the ground, and I can assure you that’s where we are,” he said.

More than a thousand jobs set to be lost over GE Power business restructuring in the UK have been linked to the continued delay of the UK government to make a decision on the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon scheme.Namely, the US-based conglomerate corporation GE has in the beginning of December announced plans to reduce 12,000 positions of its global power division workforce – potentially affecting 1,100 jobs across all parts of the UK GE Power business.The move comes due to fall in demand for new power stations and reduced investment by its clients across Western Europe, according to GE.The company said the job losses will primarily affect GE’s workers in Stafford and Rugby in the English Midlands – the sites where GE planned to manufacture and assemble key components for the power generation system of the proposed Swansea Bay tidal lagoon.Swansea Bay tidal lagoon turbine (Image: GE)To remind, GE and Andritz Hydro have in 2015 been selected by Tidal Lagoon Power, the developer behind the project, to supply 16 bi-directional turbines for the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon.The project’s 16 generators – the highest value component in the 700-tonne turbines – would be produced at GE’s Rugby facility, sustaining employment and investment there, it was decided back in 2015.However, as the UK government still hasn’t made any guarantees on whether the £1.3 billion project will go ahead – meaning there’s no guaranteed work that could arise from the project – GE Power will allegedly cut 500 jobs at both Stafford and Rugby, The Times reports.Tidal Lagoon Power is still awaiting the subsidy agreement with the UK government, despite being backed by a government-commissioned review, conducted by former energy minister Charles Hendry.But, recent media reports suggest the support among the cabinet ministers for the project seems to be dwindling as they are said to believe the lagoon does not justify value for money for taxpayers.The Times also reports about the potential missed opportunity for UK jobs due to the possibility that GE could source the equipment for the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon through its French plants, should the government green-light the project too late.Artist’s Impression – Swansea Bay tidal lagoon (Image: TLP) Mark Elborne, President and CEO GE UK & Ireland said, said: “Regrettably, the proposed changes would have an impact on jobs in the UK. These are not proposals we ever make lightly and we understand that this news will be difficult for many people. Unfortunately, we believe that these changes are necessary to ensure that we can remain competitive and secure the future of GE Power in the UK.”Elborne added the consultation period with the staff has been set in place before any final decisions are made.If constructed, the Swansea Bay tidal lagoon will have the capacity of 320MW. It will comprise 16 hydro turbines, a six-mile breakwater wall, and be capable of generating electricity for 155,000 homes for the next 120 years.
MANILA – The termination of theVisiting Forces Agreement (VFA) between the Philippines and the United Stateswill not be good for the country, Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) secretaryTeodoro Locsin Jr. said. During his appearance in the Senate,Locsin said continuing the VFA will be more beneficial to the country andtermination of it will negatively impact the country’s defense and securityarrangements. Locsin’s latest pronouncement wasdespite him saying late last month he already asked Defense chief DelfinLorenzana to start the termination process. “The continuance of the agreement isdeemed more beneficial to the country compared to any benefits were it to beterminated,” Locsin said. “The Philippines’ contribution to the regionaldefense was anchored in our military alliance with world’s last super power.” No reason was given for thecancellation of the visa but the US federal budget for 2020 contained aprovision banning the entry into the US of Filipino officials involved in thedetention of Sen. Leila de Lima. Terminating the VFA, he said, wouldnegatively impact the country’s defense and security arrangements as well asthe overall bilateral relations of the Philippines with the US, perhaps even insub-regional and multilateral levels,”he added. He added: “There is value inrevisiting the VFA to address matters of sovereignty such as jurisdiction andcustody and early resumption of clarificatory talks should serve as basis, aswell as jump off point for a review of the VFA.”/PN The Senate Committee on ForeignAffairs is looking into the Philippines’ defense and military agreements withthe US after President Rodrigo Duterte ordered the termination of the VFAfollowing the US’ cancellation of Sen.r Ronald Dela Rosa’s visa. “I have prepared the notice oftermination but it has not been sent upon the orders of the President,” Locsinsaid. “Perhaps, we should review the VFA. Certainly we should do that because Idon’t believe that just because we need them we should suffer insults to oursovereignty.” The Philippine government has yet tosend to the US any notice to terminate the VFA.
