first_img Show Closed This production ended its run on June 28, 2015 The Audience follows the reign of Queen Elizabeth II from 1952 to the Diamond Jubilee in 2012. For 50 years the Queen has sat with all of England’s Prime Ministers for private, weekly meetings at Buckingham Palace. The Audience breaks the silence on these highly secretive meetings. Morgan is apparently contemplating adding Tony Blair, who didn’t feature in London, to the New York line-up. Her Majesty is coming to Broadway! As previously speculated, Oscar winner Helen Mirren, who reprised the role of Queen Elizabeth II in the acclaimed 2013 West End production of The Audience, will star in a New York mounting of Peter Morgan’s new play. The Daily Mail reports that Mirren has confirmed that she will begin rehearsals in mid-January next year, with the show starting previews in February. The drama will officially open at a Shubert theater to be confirmed in March. Morgan wrote the screenplay for the hit 2006 film The Queen, which also starred Mirren as Elizabeth II; her performance won her the Academy Award. She earned Tony nominations for A Month in the Country and Dance of Death. Mirren’s London theater credits include Teeth ‘n’ Smiles, The Seagull, Henry VI, The Roaring Girl, Two Way Mirror and Some Kind of Love Story. Her additional film and TV credits include The Debt, Excalibur, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, Frasier and a cameo as Becky’s Inner Voice on Glee.

first_imgTwo Thai women convicted of smuggling methamphetamine into Bali have escaped a possible death sentence on the Indonesian holiday island after a court sentenced them to 16 years in jail.The district court in Bali’s capital Denpasar said Kasarin Khamkhao and Sanicha Maneetes — a janitor and an operator of a motorcycle rental shop in Thailand — had shown remorse for their crimes and deserved leniency.The verdict Wednesday comes four months after the pair were arrested by suspicious airport officials who found nearly a kilogram of methamphetamine hidden under their clothes after arriving on a flight from Bangkok. Muslim-majority Indonesia has some of the world’s toughest drug laws, including the death penalty for traffickers.At the time of their October arrest, police said the Thai women could face a firing squad if found guilty.Prosecutors, who had demanded a 19-year jail term, said Wednesday they may appeal against the lighter-than-requested sentences.The two Thais must also pay 1.0 billion rupiah (US$72,000) each in fines or have three more months tacked on to their sentence, the court said.Indonesia has slowed the pace of its executions in recent years despite broad public support for the penalty.A French drug trafficker briefly on death row saw his sentence reduced to 19 years on appeal.While death sentences are often reduced to long jail terms, Indonesia has executed foreign nationals in the past, including two Australian masterminds of the Bali Nine heroin gang who were shot in 2015.Topics :last_img read more

first_imgThe funds, some of which are targeted to the world’s poorest nations, can be used for medical equipment or health services and will include expertise and policy advice, the bank said in a statement.The virus that erupted in central China in December has killed more than 3,000 worldwide and infected over 90,000 people.Malpass said the money — $8 billion of which is new — will go to countries that request help. The bank has been in contact with many member nations, but he did not specify which are likely to be the first to receive aid.”The point is to move fast. Speed is needed to save lives,” he said in a conference call. The World Bank unveiled a US$12 billion aid package on Tuesday that will provide fast-track funds to help countries combat the coronavirus outbreak.”The goal is to provide fast, effective action that responds to country needs,” World Bank President David Malpass told reporters. He said it is critical to “recognize the extra burden on poor countries” least equipped in the struggle to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. “We want to make the best use of the World Bank’s extensive resources and global expertise and the historical knowledge of crises,” he said, citing similar crisis funding to combat the Ebola and Zika outbreaks in recent years.center_img Topics :last_img read more

first_imgDespite the increasing number of COVID-19 cases in Bali, the island has no intention of implementing large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) similar to those that are enforced in Greater Jakarta to stop the virus transmission.Bali Governor Wayan Koster claimed that Bali had yet to face a situation where such restrictions would be essential to apply, citing that the province had not even reached a high number of local transmissions.In a Monday press conference, Koster said implementing the large-scale restrictions would require at least two conditions.“First, the region would need to record many COVID-19 cases. Second, the spread of the virus would need to be high and have a big potential to cause fatalities and other misfortunes.“For Bali, referring to such requirements and my calculations […], it is not yet the time [for us to implement the restrictions]. We’re still quite far [from such conditions],” said Koster, who is an Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDIP) politician.Read also: COVID-19: Pekanbaru first area in Sumatra granted request to impose large-scale social restrictionsHe went on to say that Bali at the moment was not at the level of Jakarta, which is the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak in Indonesia with a high number of local transmissions. Koster said he was certain that the number of local transmissions in Bali was still low.Out of 81 cases recorded as of Monday, Koster claimed that only eight cases were caused by local transmission. “Most of the cases here are imported cases. Only eight people contracted COVID-19 through local transmission. I check the situation on a daily basis. The amount of local transmission is very small, in my opinion,” he added.Koster’s reasoning was based on what happened in Jakarta.Read also: COVID-19: West Java to request large-scale social restrictions for Greater Bandung“In Jakarta, the total number has reached 2,000 cases, and mostly from local transmission. “The capital is also connected with neighboring areas with high cases such as Banten, West Java — including Bogor and Bekasi — as well as Central Java,” he said.Koster claimed it was relatively easy to control the spread of COVID-19 in Bali as it is a small island. Nevertheless, his administration has applied limited access at all gates of Bali.The province is also focusing on repatriating thousands of Balinese migrant workers, considering that many COVID-19 cases were found in migrant workers who had just come home from working abroad.Topics :last_img read more

first_imgNewsRegional Union leader starts racial row in Barbados by: – May 4, 2012 Roy TrotmanBRIDGETOWN, Barbados – Union protests against the firing of a handful of workers by an international jewellery store has taken on a different colour as prominent labour leader Sir Roy Trotman has been accused of racialising the dispute.During a fiery May Day presentation marking the annual recognition of Labour Day celebrations in Barbados, eminent trade unionist Sir Roy Trotman made targeted remarks about recent employment terminations carried out by an “Egyptian Jew” and linked the firings to attempts by those fired to join the labour movement. Sir Roy is reported to have further went on to make other targeted remarks about “foreign people” and sent the message that Barbados was not Syria, Damascus or Libya.The union leader’s remarks have been strongly condemned by the Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry, which issued a statement yesterday (Wednesday) evening decrying the racialised statements and calling on Sir Roy to retract them.New York-based Diamonds International, which has several branches in Barbados and throughout the Caribbean, terminated seven workers at the beginning of this week out of their 130 employees across the island. While the firings by managing director Jacob Hassid, who is Jewish, came shortly after interest was expressed by several employees in bringing union representation to bargain on their behalf, the company has publicly stated through their attorney that the firings were in process before any union overtures were made and that they were in fact a response to unbecoming behaviour by the employees.The full text of the Chamber of Commerce’s reaction to the firing is contained below:“The Barbados Chamber of Commerce and industry is appalled by the statements attributed to Sir Roy Trotman in relation to one of our member companies Diamonds International.“Sir Roy is reported to have said that 20 workers at Diamonds International were terminated on Monday 30 April 2012 because they met on Saturday April 28 to discuss whether they should form a bargaining unit. He is also reported to have referred to the managing director of the company as an “Egyptian Jew” and called on all employers to “to tell these foreign people that this is not Syria, this is not Damascus, this is not Libya”.The BCCI fully supports the right of any employee to join a union of their choice and the principles laid out in the protocol of the social partnership. We also support the provision within the draft employment rights bill under section 30 which indicates that an employee should not be discriminated against on account of their race or religion and suggest that neither should an employer be discriminated against on a similar basis.“The BCCI has consulted with Diamonds International to ascertain the facts and they have reported that 7 persons had their contracts terminated following an extended period of consultation as a result of the recommendations of their immediate supervisors. Their termination is in no way related to any intention that they might have had to form a bargaining unit. In fact, the company stressed that it has informed staff that they are free to join any organisation that they choose, including a union, without fear of repercussion.“Over the last four years while the economy has been very difficult and many companies within Barbados have closed, Diamonds International has honoured the Protocol of the Social Partnership and has not laid anyone off as a result of the recession. In fact, Diamonds International has shown great commitment to the Barbadian economy by expanding during this difficult time, most notably by opening new stores at the Lime Grove Lifestyle Centre. The company currently employs 130 persons.“The managing director, Mr. Jacob Hassid, has lived in Barbados for 17 years and he and his wife have three children all of whom were born in Barbados. When someone has shown this level of commitment to our country, we should not be referring to them by race or religion and seeking to make them feel personally uncomfortable.“We would hope that Sir Roy would investigate the facts and, once he is satisfied that he has been mis-informed, would withdraw his uncalled for remarks.Caribbean 360 News 81 Views   one comment Share Sharing is caring!center_img Tweet Share Sharelast_img read more
