first_imgPixels ImageALBANY — New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has ordered bars and restaurants across the state to not sell alcohol to patrons who are not ordering food.“All restaurants and bars statewide will be subject to new requirements that they must only serve alcohol to people who are ordering and eating food and that all service at bar tops must only be for seated patrons who are socially distanced by six feet or separated by physical barriers,” Cuomo said in a press release.Under current law, only establishments that serve food are permitted to serve alcoholic beverages.The order Cuomo issued states: “For each patron in a seated party, an item of food must be purchased at the same time as the purchase of the initial alcoholic beverage(s). However, one or more shareable food item(s) may be purchased, so long as it/they would sufficiently serve the number of people in the party.” Share:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgChristian Borle & Sutton Foster(Photos: Bruce Glikas) A surprising guest is accompanying Sutton Foster to Stars Hollow. Fellow Tony winner—and ex-husband—Christian Borle will join her in the upcoming Netflix revival of Gilmore Girls. Also on board is Tony nominee and Disaster! star Kerry Butler.The trio, according to Entertainment Weekly, will play three stars of Stars Hollow: The Musical, featured in the third episode of the new season. Fun Home Tony winner Jeanine Tesori will pen the score for the show-within-a-show. Borle and Foster are familiar with singing her work; the two starred in Thoroughly Modern Millie together, and Foster went on to headline Shrek and Violet on Broadway.Upon the initial announcement of Foster’s involvement, it was speculated that she would reprise her role as Michelle Simms from the ABC Family series Bunheads, which, like Gilmore Girls, was created by Amy Sherman-Palladino.The Tony-winning duo celebrated their wedding in 2006 following their stint in Thoroughly Modern Millie. They separated in 2010, but have continued to sing each other’s praises. “There’s a reason we got divorced, but there’s a reason we got married,” Borle told Broadway.com back in 2012. “She an unbelievable woman. She’s the best.” Borle has also admitted to becoming obsessed with Gilmore Girls while with Foster.A Tony winner for Something Rotten! and Peter and the Starcatcher, Borle will return to the Broadway stage this fall as Marvin in the revival of Falsettos. He previously appeared on the small screen in NBC’s Smash, The Sound of Music Live! and Peter Pan Live!. Butler earned a Tony nomination for her performance in Xanadu; her additional credits include Catch Me If You Can, Hairspray and Rock of Ages.Borle and Butler are the latest addition who did not appear in the original series. They join fellow newcomers Stacey Oristano—a Bunheads alum—and Mae Whitman, who starred opposite headliner Lauren Graham in Parenthood. Several leading, featured and recurring players from the original series (including Tony winner Kelly Bishop) are slated to return for the Netflix revival, with the notable exception of Melissa McCarthy.

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A former department head at Valley Stream North High School frequently made unsolicited passes at a pair of male colleagues and boasted about her past sexual triumphs, which created a “toxic” work environment for teachers and students, according to sexual harassment complaint filed Monday against the school district.The allegations against veteran social studies teacher Cecilia Sanossian, who became chair of the Social Studies Department in the 2009-2010 school year before recently stepping down, was the result of years of disregarded complaints and deafening silence from the Valley Stream Central School District, according to two social studies teachers bringing the complaint.“To see nothing be done about it…it really hurt, it really upset me,” Alphonso Daddino of Garden City said at Carle Place office of the law firm Leeds Brown Law PC.“We were getting ignored through every channel,” said John Brennan of Brooklyn, who claimed he was first sexually harassed during the 2009-2010 school year.Both men said they were victims of unwanted advances through the years and had to endure suggestive comments that disrupted the work environment and caused physical and emotional stress.Brennan, who is married, alleged that Sanossian would massage his shoulders and neck and caress his scalp even after he’d decline her offers, which made him feel powerless, he said.“I got to the point where I wouldn’t even go to our office anymore,” he said.In the complaint filed with the New York State Division of Human Rights, Daddino said he was touched inappropriately on his back, arms and shoulders. Sanossian also made lewd comments, such as “I give the best head,” explaining her preference for older men, and an admission that she and her sisters are known for their “great assess but not their breasts,” the complaint states.Brennan claimed that the sexual harassment would continue even after he had made official complaints to the administration. “Sanossian made comments to John such as: ‘I could just kiss you,’” and in one instance, invited him over to shower at her house, according to the complaint.Ten concerned members of the social studies department collectively wrote a letter to the high school principal last May detailing troubling comments and threats made against members of the department. Sanossian would openly brag about her sex life, including the time she broke her rib during a specific romp, the complaint states. She also referred to male members of the department as “FILF”—“fathers I would like to f**k,” according to the letter included in the complaint. Her fondness for one male colleague prompted Sanossian to compare him to a “hot fudge chocolate Sunday that students want to eat,” the letter states.Both men said on several occasions they explained their grievances to the school administration, including to the principal and assistant principal. Brennan’s first verbal complaint was made in 2010. Both men filed sexual harassment complaints, but corrective measures were never taken, according to the complaint.“She created a very toxic environment,” said Daddino. “I had to do something. I couldn’t let this continue.”Brennan agreed.“That’s why we’re at this point,” added Brennan. “We have to do what’s right.”Their attorney, Lenard Leeds, called the men “heroes” and said they’re trying to do what’s best for their colleagues and students. Leeds also suggested hypothetically that a similar complaint made by a female would perhaps attract a more aggressive response from the school district. Brennan, however, said they have not been shamed for speaking out and insisted that their colleagues have been supportive.Leeds called for disciplinary actions against Sanossian, who recently stepped down as chair and now works as a teacher. Leeds said he would leave it to a jury to determine how much the men should be awarded.“The district is aware of the allegations and is conducting an internal investigation,” Bill Heidenreich, Superintendent of Valley Stream Central High School District, said in a statement through a spokeswoman. “Due to matters of personnel, the district is not offering any further comment at this time.”It was unclear if Sanossian had hired an attorney.last_img read more

first_imgESSEQUIBO rode on an excellent all-round effort throughout to win the second edition of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) Franchise League three-day tournament, which concluded yesterday.The achievement landed Essequibo their maiden title. The League, which was played over a seven-week period, saw over 100 of the country’s best cricketers participating.However, Essequibo do deserve great appreciation. They played some phenomenal cricket from round one, and the trend of an overall team effort continued throughout.Their dominance was so eventful, that Anthony Adams was voted the best all-rounder and Most Valuable Player in the tournament.Meanwhile, Coach Michael Franco Hyles hailed the team’s performances, saying it’s an amazing accomplishment, not only for this team, but also for Essequibo and Guyana’s cricket.“It was a superb commitment in all departments… everyone contributed, and I am happy for the end results,” Hyles said in an invited comment from this publication.GCB’s Secretary Anand Sanasie said that Essequibo have silenced the critics. He urged the players to stay focused and replicate at all formats and levels.Sanasie, who is also a director on Cricket West Indies (CWI) hoped that through this League, the game can continue to improve.“This, the second edition of the League, can clearly be considered better than the first. It is the hope that we can continue to improve at all levels to make this the primary first class competition in the longer version of the game,” he disclosed.According to Sanasie, the board has expended in excess of $20M on this tournament, with the hope that more cricketers and officials can be developed for national duties, and thereafter making the grade for selection at the regional and CWI levels.Sanasie congratulated the team and the Essequibo Cricket Board (ECB). He indicated that initiatives in Women and T20 cricket development are high on the GCB’s agenda.Meanwhile, when play resumed yesterday at Tuschen, West Demerara were 81-5. They added a further 73 runs before they were bowled out for 154 during the morning session.Left-arm spinner Anthony Adams was again among the wickets, claiming four of the remaining wickets to finish with figures of 6-44.Of the five remaining batsmen, only Jamal Gomes (25), Richie Looknauth (17), and Mahendra Dhanpaul (12 not out), offered some form of resistance.Chaitram Persaud (3-45), and Kevin Gordon (1-28), were the other successful bowlers for Essequibo.With a first innings lead of 110, Essequibo, batting a second time, declared at 128-5. Set 233 to win, West Demerara reached 24-1 when the game was called off.At Bush Lot, West Berbice were bowled out for 296, with a lead of 222.

first_imgChelsea’s slim chances of a top-four Premier League finish suffered another blow as Javier Hernandez salvaged a priceless point for West Ham in their battle to avoid the drop in a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge yesterday.The reigning champions now trail Tottenham and Liverpool by 10 points with just six games left to salvage a place in the Champions League next season.Chelsea paid tribute to former captain and assistant manager Ray Wilkins, who died aged 61 on Wednesday following a cardiac arrest, before kick-off with a minute’s applause. However, on the field they failed to deliver manager Antonio Conte’s call to “make a great memory” in Wilkins’ honour as a desperately disappointing season continues to fizzle out.The hosts did go in front in scrappy fashion when captain Cesar Azpilicueta prodded Alvaro Morata’s knockdown past the flat-footed Joe Hart.“We are not clinical. It’s a pity because we dominated the game,” said Conte.“We are talking about a draw and that is incredible. I think with this game we can see our season. We create a lot of chances but we cannot take them.“When this happens regularly and you stay in this position, it means you have problems. Other teams in the league are more clinical. This is the truth.”West Ham went into the game on the back of a morale-boosting 3-0 win over fellow strugglers Southampton last weekend to ease rising tensions between the board and supporters.And they look well-set to save themselves from relegation as Hernandez’s strike moved David Moyes’s men six points above the drop zone in 14th.Chelsea played a large part in their own downfall as Gary Cahill’s wayward header allowed Marko Arnautovic to pull the ball back in the Mexican’s path to slam past Thibaut Courtois.Hart was needed, though, to salvage a point for the visitors as he made brilliant stops from Marcos Alonso and Olivier Giroud in the closing stages to do his hopes of starting for England at the World Cup no harm.Sixth-placed Arsenal are now just three points adrift of Chelsea as Danny Welbeck scored twice and also set up Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to continue his fine start to life in the Premier League in a bad-tempered 3-2 win over Southampton.Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger made seven changes from the side that beat CSKA Moscow 4-1 on Thursday in their Europa League quarterfinal, first leg with Champions League qualification by winning that competition now the Gunners’ priority.Another England World Cup hopeful was heavily involved as the injury-ravaged Welbeck netted his first league goals since September.Shane Long took advantage of a comical mix-up between Petr Cech and Shkodran Mustafi to put the visitors in front early on.However, Welbeck teed up Aubameyang for his sixth goal in eight games since joining for a club-record fee from Borussia Dortmund and then put Arsenal in front before the break.“I’m pleased for him because he has been through difficult times,” said Wenger. “I have seen him behave (well) when it was really tough so he deserves everything he gets.“He had every reason to feel sorry for himself, to think the mountain was too big to climb, because it was the right knee, then the left knee and a year out every time.“People were questioning whether he would come back and I believe what he has done is exceptional.”Charlie Austin came off the bench to level for the Saints 17 minutes from time.But, after passing up one glorious chance, Welbeck headed home the winner nine minutes from time.Saints’ Jack Stephens and Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny were then both sent off as Southampton’s frustration boiled over in the closing stages as they remain three points adrift of safety.aShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
