Report claims budget discrimation against Derry

first_img Minister McConalogue says he is working to improve fishing quota Report claims budget discrimation against Derry Google+ Facebook Twitter WhatsApp LUH system challenged by however, work to reduce risk to patients ongoing – Dr Hamilton By News Highland – February 11, 2011 Foyle MP Mark Durkan is backing a report conducted by by U4D and the Chamber of Commerce which claims that the draft budget discriminates against Derry and the wider North West.Mr Durkan says the report highlights some of the significant deficiencies in the Budget plans from a Derry point of view, particularly in terms of the failure of the Department of Culture, Arts and Leisure to make any funding bids linked to the city’s designation as City of Culture.According to Mark Durkan, DCAL’s failure to make funding bids must be questioned, particularly as, at the initiaitve of Minister Conor Murphy, marker bids were made by the Depaertment of Social Development in anticipation of extra applications for funding as 2013 draws closer.Mr Durkan also says it’s disappointing that commitments on the entire length of the Derry to Belfast road have not been urgently progressed.Given that the report was co-sponsored by the U4D “University for Derry” group, it’s no surprise that it concludes the biggest single thing that can be done for the local economy is to expand the university.Mr Durkan says he fully backs plans to substantially increase the size of the Magee campus, with a big increase in student numbers and many new courses in subjects that are relevant to the new economy industries.He is also calling for the re-establishment of the Integrated Development Fund, which was abolished by the executive in 2008.

UFO seen flying over New Jersey was actually a drone, police say

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(UNION, N.J.) — It wasn’t a UFO — or bird, or plane — stalking the skies over northern New Jersey Tuesday night.The unidentified flying object was actually a police drone being used to search for two suspects who robbed a Home Depot, according to the Township of Union Police Department.Police received a 911 call around 5:49 p.m. Tuesday and reported that the suspects fled with stolen merchandise after one of them pulled a knife on a store loss prevention employee, the department wrote on Facebook.The Home Depot employee observed the suspects get into a Lexus and try to flee the scene.The suspects attempted to allude a marked police car that followed it and abandoned the vehicle after striking the curb twice near the entrance to the Garden State Parkway, according to authorities.Union Police Sgt. Dan Hanselmann was able to tackle the driver and took him into the custody, but the passenger jumped over a guardrail and headed toward the Kawameeh Swamp, prompting a large-scale search for him, police said.The man was not found after a search that lasted several hours in the heavily wooded area, police said.A video posted to Twitter Tuesday around 8 p.m. showed a device with blinking lights hovering over the Garden State Parkway.People were calling into the News12 New Jersey newsroom to report the possible UFO sighting, the station tweeted.The driver of the Lexus, identified as 45-year-old Rashon Plant, told Hanselmann that the other suspect was armed with a gun or knife and carjacked him, police said. Investigators determined that the driver was part of the shoplifting plan after reviewing the surveillance video from The Home Depot, police said.Police found about $2,000 worth of various tools in the truck, police said.Plant was charged with robbery, eluding police and “various drug charges” for possession of heroin and cocaine, police said.Investigators are still trying to identify the suspect who got away.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Riot declared in Portland, mayor in crowd as feds disperse tear gas

first_imgPaula Bronstein/Washington PostBy WILLIAM MANSELL, ABC News(PORTLAND, Ore.) — The civil unrest and tensions in Portland, Oregon, boiled over again Thursday night as federal agents sprayed tear gas into a crowd that included Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler.Protesters, according to ABC affiliate KATU-TV in Portland, say it’s likely Wheeler was hit with the chemical agent.“Oh, for sure, he got gassed. I was standing with him, within three feet of him,” one protester told KATU. “I think it’s giving him a little sampling of those of who have been out here. This is the first time I’d ever seen a mayor, or any public official, be in the depths of what was going on.”Wheeler, who has come under scrutiny from protesters and President Donald Trump alike, was drowned out while trying to speak with demonstrators before tear gas was fired.At around 12:30 a.m. local time, the Portland Police Department declared the protest a riot and asked people to leave.“A riot has been declared outside the Justice Center. Disperse to the north and/or west. Disperse immediately,” the department tweeted. “Failure to adhere to this order may subject you to arrest or citation, or riot control agents, including, but not limited to, tear gas and/or impact weapons.”Some of the federal agents in Portland are part of a Department of Homeland Security task force established to respond to the growing protests across the country. The DHS said these forces were there to protect the federal properties from “criminal acts of violence and vandalism.”Thousands are still in the area after the riot was declared and ABC News heard at least seven use-of-force warnings.Before the riot was declared, Portland police said “multiple flares and other incendiaries” were thrown over the fence surrounding the courthouse, which resulted in fires.Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf defended federal agents’ presence in Portland earlier this week, saying they are highly trained and are being deployed with proper oversight.“These officers are not stormtroopers,” Wolf said. “They’re not the Gestapo, as some have described them. That description is offensive and hyperbolic, and it’s dishonest.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

‘Shrek The Musical’ Runs Tuesday Through Thursday

first_img“Shrek” will feature professional performers including Mark Edwards (Shrek), Kari Lochstoer (Fiona), and John Turner (Donkey). Everyone’s favorite upside-down fairy tale comes to Ocean City when the Greater Ocean City Theatre Company presents “Shrek the Musical,” a song-and-dance-filled stage adaptation of the Oscar-winning DreamWorks animated film.“Shrek the Musical” runs August 11 to 13 and is the second musical in the 2015 Broadway Series, which features the Ocean City Pops Orchestra.For their eighth official season, Ocean City Theatre Company re-creates the fantasy Kingdom of Far Far Away — with many hilarious, irreverent twists. Instead of a knight riding a noble steed, the hero is Shrek, a swamp-dwelling ogre teamed up with a chatterbox donkey. And the princess? She’s the slightly temperamental Fiona. After Shrek rescues Fiona from a dragon-guarded tower, the two fall in love before she reveals there’s more to her than meets the eye. Other fairy tale misfits add surprises: from a Gingerbread Man with an attitude to Three Blind Mice channeling their inner Dreamgirls.This entertaining, family-friendly show features a terrific score, with 19 songs including “I’m A Believer,” “Build A Wall,” “I Know Its Today,” “Travel Song,” and “I’ve Think I Got You Beat.” The songs come from Jeanine Tesori, who wrote the music, and David Lindsay-Abaire, who wrote the book and lyrics.“Shrek the Musical” also draws from a 1990 children’s book by famed New Yorker cartoonist William Steig. Like the first 2001 Shrek film, the musical stays true to Steig’s fractured fairytale vision where dragons are friendly, swamps are better than castles, and the true hero isn’t handsome or noble but a grouchy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside ogre who is more or less content with himself and his life in a swamp.After “Shrek the Musical” premiered in 2008, as the most expensive show ever produced on Broadway, it played for more than a year and earned numerous Tony and Drama Desk Award nominations. The Ocean City production will feature spectacular effects, a 14’ dragon puppet, colorful sets, amazing make up, and costumes that replicate the Broadway production!For Ocean City Theatre Company’s production, Michael Hartman directs, Colleen Kreisel choreographs, and Jonathan Kreamer oversees the music direction.The 24-member cast features professional performers from New York City and three local youth actors. Mark Edwards will return to the OCTC stage to perform the title role of Shrek. Edwards won over OCTC audiences with his portrayal of Harold Hill in The Music Man, male singer in Swing! and most recently the 2014 Holiday Spectacular. He recently completed the national tours of Camelot and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. Making their OCTC debut are Kari Lochstoer (Fiona) and John Turner (Donkey). The genius talents of John Anker Bow will shine once again as he tackles the role of Lord Farquaad. Youth performers include Julia Wilson, Maggie Avellino, and Scott Avellino.Shrek the Musical performs August 11th, 12th, and 13th at 7:30 PM at the Hughes Performing Arts Center of Ocean City High School.Tickets are $20-$25.

Trans-Siberian Orchestra Founder Paul O’Neill Dead At Age 61

first_imgYou can also get the full Trans-Siberian Orchestra experience with full pro-shot video of their 12/20/14 show at Boston’s TD Garden, thanks to YouTube user squintyt4e: This morning, we were met with the unfortunate news that Paul O’Neill, founder of the seasonally-inspired Trans-Siberian Orchestra, has passed away at the age of 61, after having suffered from “chronic illness.” A post on the Trans Siberian Orchestra Facebook page acknowledged the passing of the group’s friend and founder:Explains the post, “[Paul] was our friend and our leader–a truly creative spirit and an altruistic soul. This is a profound and indescribable loss for us all.” According to Rolling Stone, “O’Neill co-wrote ‘Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24,’which combined the yuletide staples ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’ and ‘Carol of the Bells,’ with Jon Oliva, the guitarist for the metal band Savatage, for that band’s 1995 album Dead Winter Dead. Wanting to expand his vision on that song, he assembled Trans-Siberian Orchestra with Oliva and Savatage guitarist Al Pitrelli and keyboardist Robert Kinkel; they put out the album Christmas Eve and Other Stories and released the song as a single. The song has since been certified gold and has made appearances on Billboard’s rock and adult-contemporary charts in 1996, 1998, 2002 and 2004. The album was subsequently certified three-times platinum, and the group has issued five other LPs, scoring another multi-platinum release with 2004’s The Lost Christmas Eve and Top 10 releases with 2009’s Night Castle and their most recent album, 2015’s Letters From the Labyrinth.”Trans-Siberian Orchestra regularly embark on smashingly successful winter tours in the U.S., featuring lavish production with lasers and pyrotechnics. According to Blabbermouth, last winter’s tour sold nearly 1 million tickets, and grossed north of $55M. In 2009, Billboard ranked them among the Top 25 Touring Artists of the Decade. In recent years, Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s “Wizards In Winter” has gone viral as the backing music for some of the most impressive Christmas light displays on the Internet.In honor of O’Neill, take a look at one of the many amazing “Wizards In Winter” Christmas light videos below, via Atlantic Records:last_img read more

Jazz Is Phsh Taps Twiddle’s Ryan Dempsey For Special Phil Lesh Late-Night & Tumble Down Kick-Off Party

first_imgOn July 26th, Jazz Is Phsh is headed to Vermont, for a special performance at the iconic Burlington venue Higher Ground. Jazz Is Phsh’s headlining performance will serve as a kick-off party for Twiddle‘s Tumble Down Festival, which will return to the beautiful shores of Lake Champlain at Waterfront Park on July 27th and 28th. The show will also function as an afterparty for Phil Lesh & The Terrapin Family Band and Midnight North‘s July 26th performance at Waterfront Park.For those unfamiliar, Jazz Is Phsh is an all-star jazz tribute to Phish, conceptualized and fronted by brothers Adam and Matt Chase. The band has become a staple tribute act to the beloved Vermont quartet, reimagining classic Phish tunes in an jazzy, instrumental way while keeping each song’s original spirit grounded in improvisation at the forefront. For the ensemble’s upcoming performance at Higher Ground, the Chase Brothers will be joined by Chris Bullock (Snarky Puppy), Dave Grippo (The Giant Country Horns), Felix Pastorius (Jeff Coffin, Mike Clark), and Josh Dobbs (Dead Set), in addition to special guest, Twiddle keyboardist Ryan Dempsey.As Adam Chase told Live For Live Music,We are looking forward to bringing our interpretations of Phish to where Phish got their start. To have Dave “The Truth” Grippo joining us is very special since Dave was a part of Phish’s touring horn section in the 90’s, The Giant Country Horns. Early in Phish’s career, Dave worked with Phish and helped them hone in their jazz chops, guiding the band through jazz standards like “Caravan”, “Take The A Train”, and “Donna Lee”. As the kickoff for Tumble Down, it is fitting that we will have Twiddle’s Ryan Dempsey joining us on a few tunes as a special guest. We will also have some heavy hitters with Snarky Puppy’s Chris Bullock on tenor saxophone and bass legend, Felix Pastorius, on the bass guitar. Can’t wait to dive in!Don’t miss out when the group rolls through Burlington, Vermont, on July 26th for a special Phil Lesh late-night show and Tumble Down kick-off party!
