Arrangements are currently being finalised for a specific date, with the venue more than likely being the Castle Oaks hotel.“I would encourage all residents in the Castleconnell and Montpelier areas to attend and have their say. Over 100 people attended the previous Public Consultation on and this shows how important it is to everyone in the area.“Castleconnell Village and Montpelier were both flooded on the last two occasions and the fact that the original draft flood relief report did not include any measures for either location was crazy. This is now being rectified.”“Once the date and venue are fully finalised and confirmed for the Public Consultation, it will be advertised locally and I will also inform local residents,” Senator O’Donnell concluded.last_img read more

Zachary Levi Will Replace Josh Radnor in She Loves Me

first_img View Comments Related Shows Stage and screen fave Zachary Levi is the hero of the hour with this latest Great White Way casting switcheroo! The Broadway alum will replace the previously announced Josh Radnor as Georg in She Loves Me. Radnor has departed the production owing to, yes, you guessed it, “scheduling conflicts.” Starring Laura Benanti, Jane Krakowski and more, the Scott Ellis-helmed revival will play a limited engagement February 5, 2016 through May 22. Opening night is set for March 3 at Roundabout’s Studio 54.Levi made his Broadway debut in 2013 in the musical First Date opposite Krysta Rodriguez. Along with the upcoming NBC series Heroes Reborn, his TV and film resume includes Chuck, Thor, Tangled, Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, Spiral and Big Momma’s House 2. Levi joins a cast also including René Auberjonois, Gavin Creel and Michael McGrath.Featuring a book by Joe Masteroff, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick and music by Jerry Bock, She Loves Me follows Georg (Levi) and Amalia (Benanti), two parfumerie clerks who aren’t quite the best of friends. Constantly bumping heads while on the job, the sparring coworkers can’t seem to find common ground. But little do they know, the anonymous romantic pen pals they have both been falling for happen to be each other! Will love continue to blossom once their identities are finally revealed? The score features favorites such as “Vanilla Ice Cream,” “A Romantic Atmosphere,” “Dear Friend” and “She Loves Me.”The musical comedy is based on a play by Miklos Laszlo, whose story was also the basis for the 1940 James Stewart film The Shop Around the Corner and the 1998 Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan film You’ve Got Mail. Ellis directed Roundabout’s She Loves Me in 1993, which marked the first Broadway musical in the company’s history.

Iheanacho guns for 6th league goal

first_imgRelatedPosts Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U EPL: Red Devils attack Palace In-form Nigerian striker, Kelechi Iheanacho, will hunt for his sixth Premier League goal as Leicester City and Arsenal go head to head at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.Iheanacho would also be gunning for his 11th goal in all competitions against Crystal Palace on Saturday in what was his ninth league start and 16th appearance. It is also the first time he scored in back-to-back league games this term having scored in last Wednesday’s 2-1 defeat at Everton, and the second overall after doing so in the two-legged EFL Cup semi-final defeat to Aston Villa.The Foxes remain in third place as a result of the victory, but will need to be watchful of Chelsea and Manchester United who are just one and three points behind, respectively, on the table, which is making for an intense race to finish in the lucrative Champions League places.They travel to the British capital to confront Arsenal – who saw off Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 on Saturday with Super Eagles hopeful Bukayo Saka scoring his first-ever Premier League goal.Ricardo Pereira and Daniel Amartey remain sidelined for the Foxes, but Brendan Rodgers could once again start both Vardy and Iheanacho after both scored last time out.Tags: Aston VillaCrystal PalaceEFL Cup Semi-FinalEmirates StadiumKelechi Iheanacholast_img read more

With 8 foreign-born players, Syracuse overcomes language barriers

first_imgSyracuse head coach Ange Bradley barked instructions to senior Lies Lagerweij from the sidelines.“Pressure,” Bradley yelled at Lagerweij. “Pressure.”Lagerweij received the message and relayed instructions to fellow All-American, Roos Weers. But instead of English, Lagerweij repeated the instructions in Dutch, the pair’s native language. She then yelled, “pressure” audibly to the rest of the team.No. 10 Syracuse (11-5, 2-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) has eight foreign athletes on the team. Seven come from the Netherlands or Germany and do not speak English as a first language. Elaine Carey, an Irish native, is the one foreign player that speaks English as a first language.“That’s the biggest adaptation that’s cultural,” Bradley said. “… Having to do something in a language that’s not your own. Think if you had to read all your books for your classes in Dutch.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAmerican field hockey is much faster and more physical than European field hockey, Bradley said. But in addition to adapting to American styles of play, SU’s foreign players must adjust to playing with people who speak a different language.For many, the adjustment to playing on a predominantly English-speaking team and adjusting to an American style of play has been a challenge, but it is also challenging for the American players adjusting to foreign languages and playing styles.Erin Gillingham, a midfielder, plays close to the back line around Weers, Lagerweij and Dutch goalie Borg van der Velde. She hears them strategizing in Dutch every game.“I have no idea what they’re saying,” Gillingham said. “As long as they get their point across to each other and they know what they’re talking about, then that’s all that matters.”Gillingham has yet to have a teammate try to talk to her in a foreign language on or off the field, but she’s heard stories of it.“They don’t even know that they’re doing it,” Gillingham said. “And that’s the funny part.”Unlike Gillingham, senior midfielder Laura Hurff has been barked at in an unrecognizable tongue, but it didn’t come off the field, it came in the thick of a heated game. While on defense, Dutch freshman Florine Hogendoorn began directing Hurff. She yelled “Go to the ball! Go to the ball!” But Hogendoorn didn’t realize she was hollering in Dutch.“I was like, ‘What? What are you saying?’” Hurff said. “And she kept saying it over and over.”Five minutes later, during a break in the action, Hogendoorn ran up to Hurff and apologized. She had just realized that she was speaking in Dutch and not English.Think if you had to read all your books for your classes in Dutch.Ange BradleyEuropean field hockey isn’t as physical or as fast as the American style. The game is much more tactical and the experience runs deeper. Many players, such as junior Emma Tufts, adjusted to field hockey after originally playing ice hockey. Foreign players don’t usually share that common experience. Hogendoorn had dreamed of playing field hockey in America for as long as she could remember.“(European players) bring a lot of knowledge to us,” Hurff said. “… They start at a younger age, so they’re really good at reading the game.”Often, when those players read the game and talk about it, the discussions are not in English. In the middle of games, it is easier for many of the players to work together in their own languages, Weers and Hoogendoorn said. For them, if it would be more effective to give directions to each other in Dutch, they’ll do it in Dutch.Speaking in one’s native language brings back a sense of familiarity for the German and Dutch players. But to Bradley, it isn’t a Dutch, German, Irish or American style that matters.“It’s still the same game,” Bradley said. “Played with a white ball and turf.” Comments Published on October 23, 2017 at 9:39 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
