Andrew Rannells Enters the Hamilton Kingdom 10/27

first_img View Comments Related Shows Andrew Rannells is continuing his Broadway track record of only appearing in blockbusters as he steps into the shoes of King George in Hamilton on October 27. Rannells temporarily replaces Jonathan Groff, who is on hiatus filming the final installment of HBO’s Looking.“I feel so fortunate that I get to pop in for five weeks,” Rannells told Broadway.com. “I get to be a little part of this huge hit musical and then see ya later for the holidays!” The Book of Mormon Tony Award nominee was last seen as the first replacement for Neil Patrick Harris in Hedwig and the Angry Inch for a similarly short run of eight weeks. “This is my thing,” he joked. “You get me for a little bit and then I’ll peace out.”In addition to Mormon, Rannells appeared on Broadway in the, yup, smash hits Jersey Boys and Hairspray. On TV, he headlined the sitcom The New Normal and is a regular on HBO’s Girls. Films include Bachelorette and the current comedy The Intern.“[Hamilton] is such a wonderful group of people,” he added. “And Jonathan Groff is a good friend of mine so it’s been really fun to hang out with him backstage and for him to show me the ropes. I’m really just so honored that they asked me!” Rannells is expected to perform King George at the Richard Rodgers Theatre through November 29, with Groff scheduled to return on December 1.Directed by Thomas Kail and featuring a book, music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Hamilton is inspired by the book Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. The new musical follows the scrappy young immigrant who forever changed America, from bastard orphan to Washington’s right hand man, rebel to war hero, loving husband caught in the country’s first sex scandal to Treasury head who made an untrusting world believe in the American economy. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Eliza Hamilton and lifelong Hamilton friend and foe, Aaron Burr, all make appearances in the tuner about America’s fiery past.Starring Miranda in the title role, the cast also currently includes Christopher Jackson as George Washington, Leslie Odom Jr. as Aaron Burr, Phillipa Soo as Eliza Hamilton, Anthony Ramos as John Laurens/Phillip Hamilton, Daveed Diggs as Marquis De Lafayette/Thomas Jefferson, Renée Elise Goldsberry as Angelica Schuyler and Javier Muñoz as Hamilton alternate. from $149.00 Hamiltonlast_img read more

Central Vermont Public Service to purchase Deerfield Wind power

first_imgCentral Vermont Public Service (NYSE-CV) will purchase two-thirds of the output of Iberdrola Renewables’ planned Deerfield Wind Project in Readsboro and Searsburg, Vermont, under an agreement announced today.‘The project will add yet another clean, competitively priced energy source to CV’s power supply, while providing economic benefits from development of in-state generation,’ CVPS President Bob Young said. ‘This is an attractive addition to our portfolio, which we continue to build and diversify as planned and in compliance with state law mandating renewable power in our mix. Pricing for this project is very competitive with other wind proposals CV has reviewed, and equally important, the project is permitted by the Vermont Public Service Board and headed toward timely construction.’CVPS will purchase 20 megawatts of the project’s planned 30-megawatt output for nine years. Deerfield Wind is proposed to be built on U.S. Forest Service land, near the existing Searsburg wind project, in Readsboro and Searsburg. To protect sensitive contract negotiations with other parties, the price has been disclosed to regulators under seal.The project is designed to include 15 wind turbines, eight in Searsburg and seven in Readsboro, which will produce 30 megawatts of new capacity. The project is expected to produce enough energy to power about 14,000 average Vermont households.Deerfield Wind is being developed by Portland, Oregon-based Iberdrola Renewables. Iberdrola Renewables has become the second-largest wind operator in the United States, with installed capacity of over 3,800 megawatts ‘ over 30 percent of the company’s global capacity ‘ spread over 41 wind farms, including New Hampshire’s only commercial wind farm. Iberdrola Renewables is the U.S. division of Iberdrola Renovables, the world’s largest wind power company with more than 11,400 MW in installed capacity.Deerfield Wind has received a Section 248 permit from the Vermont Public Service Board. The project continues to work towards the satisfaction of all outstanding permitting conditions and requirements. Construction is expected to begin in 2012.‘Iberdrola Renewables is pleased to welcome CVPS to our growing list of customers and we look forward to supplying them from what will be our first wind farm in Vermont,’ said Martin Mugica, executive vice president for Iberdrola Renewables. ‘Once permitted, this project will create substantial long-term economic benefits, and will produce homegrown energy to be used locally.’CVPS, which has among the cleanest power portfolios in the nation, has been expanding its power supply in anticipation of the end of existing contracts with Hydro-Quebec and Vermont Yankee. The company recently signed a new deal with Hydro-Quebec, starting in 2012, and announced several other renewable projects in the region. Under Vermont law, the state’s energy supply must contain 20 percent new renewable power by 2017. With the purchases now in the pipeline, CV is about four-fifths of the way to this goal. Recently signed contracts include:30.3 percent of the output from the 99-megawatt Granite Reliable Power wind project, to be built in Coos County, N.H., for 20 years starting April 1, 2012;The entire output of Ampersand Gilman Hydro, a 4.99-megawatt hydro unit in Gilman, Vt., for five years starting April 1, 2012;15 megawatts of round-the-clock energy from J.P. Morgan Ventures Energy for calendar years 2013 through 2015.CVPS also continues to expand its Cow Power generation; recently built a 50-kilowatt solar project on Route 7 in Rutland Town; improved a Passumpsic River hydro facility in St. Johnsbury; conducted a broad request for contract proposals contingent on Vermont Yankee’s relicensing; and announced plans to buy the Vermont Electric Power Division of Omya, including four large hydro-facilities on Otter Creek. CVPS plans to invest $12 million after closing to improve production from the Omya facilities.‘Through the state’s public outreach process and conversations with our customers, it is clear that Vermont policy makers and our customers want us to continue to expand our reliance on cost-effective renewable energy,’ Young said. ‘Along with Deerfield, these projects are among the most affordable renewable projects we have seen. While they tend to cost significantly more than conventional market supplies, they are much cheaper than alternatives with these characteristics.’Iberdrola Renewables, Inc. is an American company, incorporated in the U.S. and headquartered in Portland, Ore., with over 850 employees. It is part of the Iberdrola Renovables global group, the world’s leading provider of wind power with more than 11,400 MW of renewable energy in operation around the world, and more than 3,800 MW of that wind power located in the U.S. www.iberdrolarenewables.us(link is external)CVPS is Vermont’s largest electric utility, serving approximately 159,000 customers statewide.

The secrets to making special Valentine’s Day chocolates

first_imgOWEGO (WBNG) — At Fuddy Duddy’s Confectionary, chocolatiers have been hard at work making all of the Valentine’s Day candy. When it comes to love and chocolate, owner of Fuddy Duddy’s, Steve Cruty, says they’re pretty much the same. 12 News was able to learn how to make some fun treats. The chocolatiers say the more popular ones are the chocolate covered strawberries and the truffles. They say the key to good sweets is what they call, “dazzling,” or rather, drizzling pink or white icing and making a fun pattern. Fuddy Duddy’s says now that Valentine’s Day is over, they are already preparing for the Easter holiday. “I recently read research that studied people who are in love and the reaction you get from eating candy, chocolates, and they’re all hitting on the same pleasure centers and wine is not that far off either, so I think that wine, chocolate, love, and Valentine’s Day all go together,” said Cruty. Cruty says all of the sweet treats in his shop are handmade, which makes it better for the community to support local businesses.last_img read more

Policymaker impunity in spotlight as Indonesia prepares COVID-19 crisis protocol

first_img“We are very aware that we must be very careful to avoid moral hazard,” Sri Mulyani told reporters on Wednesday. “We will formulate a safeguard so that policymakers that are taking measures to improve public health and the economy cannot be criminalized because of the acts of others.”The Perppu also relaxes Indonesia’s budget deficit cap to allow it to surpass its legal limit of 3 percent of the nation’s gross domestic product (GDP). Jokowi has announced a plan to add an extra Rp 405.1 trillion spending into the state budget for healthcare spending and the social welfare safety net, as well as a stimulus package for businesses that suffer as a result of COVID-19, with the budget deficit expected to widen to 5.07 percent of GDP.Furthermore, the regulation will also allow the central bank to buy LPS debt papers through repurchase (repo) agreements to provide liquidity should there be financial problems within the banking industry.“The OJK will be very assertive in selecting which financial institutions have a bad track record to discipline them and will allow only those with good track records to take such measures,” the Sri Mulyani said.“This is a preventive measure if it needs to be taken,” BI Governor Perry Warjiyo added.Read also: Explainer: BI to throw lifeline to Indonesia’s economy to fight COVID-19The Perppu will allow the central bank to buy debt papers directly issued by the government so the state budget can afford to bail out businesses at highest risk from economic shocks caused by the pandemic.Perry said the central bank would act as a lender of last resort rather than a first off-taker of the government bond issuance, which means the market will be prioritized in absorbing the debt papers. He said the central bank has yet to determine the size of the potential purchase.“BI is granted the authority to buy government debt papers and sharia bonds not as a first lender but as a last lender in the case when the market cannot fully absorb the papers,” Perry said on Wednesday. “The finance minister has stressed that BI is a last resort. This we will maintain for macroeconomic stability.”COVID-19 had infected more than 1,677 people with 157 dead in Indonesia as of Wednesday. Globally, the COVID-19 pandemic has infected more than 860,000 people and claimed at least 42,000 lives.Topics : The regulation, signed by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo on Tuesday, provides impunity for Financial System Stability Committee (KSSK) members, which includes officials from the Finance Ministry, Bank Indonesia (BI), the Financial Services Authority (OJK) and the Deposit Insurance Corporation (LPS).Read also: Indonesia’s COVID-19 stimulus playbook explainedThe Perppu comes as the government forecasts Indonesia’s economic growth to drop to 2.3 percent this year, a level unseen in 21 years, it may even contract by 0.4 percent under the worst-case scenario as the COVID-19 pandemic stifles businesses and households. The rupiah may also depreciate further to between Rp 17,500 and Rp 20,000 per US dollar, a historic low, from around Rp 16,500 today.Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati said the regulation would provide financial authorities with legal protection to take “extraordinary measures in protecting the economy”. Indonesia is strengthening its financial crisis protocol in a new regulation that will provide policymakers with immunity from criminal charges when issuing policies deemed necessary to safeguard the economy as recessionary risks rise in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.Government Regulation in lieu of law (Perppu) No. 1/2020 stipulates that everything spent by the government on COVID-19 economic recovery programs will be regarded as a measure to save the economy from crisis and not a state loss.“No actions, including decisions made based on this Perppu, may be subject to lawsuits that could be filed at a state administrative court,” says the Perppu on state finance and financial system stability to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.last_img read more

Sumner volleyball overcomes heat to earn win over Bucksport

first_img Hospice volunteers help families navigate grief and find hope – September 12, 2020 BUCKSPORT — When Sumner volleyball coach Alisa Long’s players looked overwhelmed, she decided to improvise.Sumner had just lost a hard-fought first set against Bucksport on Friday, and some of the players looked tired. In a hot Bucksport gymnasium without air conditioning, it was difficult for either team to maintain focus.As the Sumner players went to the bench following the set, Long grabbed her white team binder from the chair next to her. She pleaded for her team to play with more energy and began waving it as fast as she could in a fanning motion as her players surrounded her.In a gym this muggy, the slight breeze was enough. The Sumner players perked up, and all eyes were on Long until the referees motioned for both teams to return to the court for the second setThis is placeholder textThis is placeholder text“We got this!” senior Anna Young yelled to her teammates.From there, Sumner (1-2) got on a roll and didn’t stop. The Tigers took three of four sets, losing the first 25-22 and winning the remaining three 25-15, 25-23 and 25-15.“It was really hot in there, and it was hard for everyone to get in the right frame of mind at first,” Long said. “They just needed something to get them going, and once they had it, they never stopped.”Young finished with seven aces, three kills and one dig for Sumner. Andrea Knapp added four aces and two kills, and Adrianna Valencia-Jungo added four aces, one kill and two digs. For Bucksport (1-1), Brittney Devitt had had five aces, two digs, one kill and one assist, and Brooke Megno had two aces and two digs.Prior to the win, Sumner hadn’t won a set in its previous two games against Mount Desert Island and Calais. The Tigers were also one of two teams in Class B to play three times last week, which left them a tired team entering the match.After Sumner won the second set of the match, though, the tone started to change. As Long continued to wave her binder back and forth to keep her team cool, the Tigers stepped up to the challenge when Bucksport appeared to be on the verge of a comeback at several points in the third set. Key serves from Young and Knapp sealed the win in the fourth.“Once we were able to win that first set, we were able to use that confidence whenever we struggled a bit later on,” Long said. “We dealt with adversity from the heat and figured out how to close this game, and that’s something we can build on as we go forward.”The loss was the first of the season for Bucksport, which had previously beaten George Stevens Academy on Tuesday.“I think we made a good comeback on them in the second game, but [Sumner] was really the first team who set up balls well and him them at us,” Bucksport assistant coach Aleta Johnson said. “We’re a young team, and they were able to take advantage of some of our mistakes.”Sumner’s next game will be on the road against the Ellsworth Eagles (1-1) at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 12. Bucksport’s next game will be at home against the Mount Desert Island Trojans (3-0) at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 13.
