Six Videos to Help You Worship Frozen Diva Idina Menzel

first_img Idina Menzel WORLD, MEET WICKED One of the first times (if not the first time) Menzel sang a Wicked song in public. OK, so she’s not dressed up here, but she’s glam all the same. Thanks, Idina. You make us so happy, we could melt. Show Closed This production ended its run on March 22, 2015 THE WORLD’S HER OYSTER A classic example of Menzel looking gorgeous and delighting a gigantic crowd with her powerful voice. In this case, it was the Chess concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall. Man, can that woman hold a note! View Comments THERE’S ONLY RENT A vision in blue, Menzel wows with her beautiful rendition of Jonathan Larson’s Rent anthem—sharing the essence of the show that transformed Broadway…and launched Menzel’s career. A VOICE LIKE BUTTAH Dying is easy, comedy is hard and singing “Don’t Rain on My Parade” in front of Barbra Streisand as she is being honored at the Kennedy Center is impossible. Did Menzel pull it off? And how. Star Files Related Shows SINGING AT THE WHITE HOUSE? NO PROB Menzel, wearing Wicked green, tackles “What I Did for Love” from A Chorus Line accompanied by composer Marvin Hamlisch at the White House about 10 feet from the First Family. (No sweat!) Look, we know you know Idina Menzel. Like us, you have been obsessed with her since way before Frozen took over the world. OK, maybe we’re a weensy bit older than you and (like Andrew Rannells) think of her more as Maureen than Elphie or Lea Michele’s mom or whatever. No matter what your gateway Idina vehicle was, we can all agree that she just made a zillion new fans by blowing the roof off the Samuel Goldwyn Theatre with the unstoppable Frozen song “Let It Go” at the Oscars. So let’s all hold hands and go beyond “Defying Gravity” to introduce everyone to the lady who makes jaws drop while she rocks a fancy frock. We YouTube spiraled for you, so you can sit back and revel in six other times the diva dressed up and did her thing. You’re welcome. P.S. Want to see the goddess in person? You got it. GAGA FOR A GLEE STORY Fabulous gown, full orchestra and a fresh take on a pop hit. Oh, and Menzel shows off her sense of humor by highlighting some of those questionable lyrics. (“Love-glue gunning”?) Eat your heart out, Gaga. If/Thenlast_img read more

Electricity-Generation ‘Disruption of Unprecedented Scope’ Drives Siemens to Follow GE in Restructuring Power Equipment Business; 6,900 Job Cuts

first_imgElectricity-Generation ‘Disruption of Unprecedented Scope’ Drives Siemens to Follow GE in Restructuring Power Equipment Business; 6,900 Job Cuts FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Wall Street Journal:German electrical engineering giant Siemens AG on Thursday became the latest corporate behemoth to bow before sweeping changes to the way electricity is made the world over, as it unveiled a restructuring plan to tackle overcapacity in its core businesses.The German conglomerate said it would cut 6,900 jobs world-wide, or 2% of its total workforce. The cuts affect three of its oldest units that provide clients that range from electrical utilities to commodities companies to the oil-and-gas industry with gigantic turbines, industrial motors and other heavy equipment.The restructuring at Siemens comes just days after rival General Electric Co. admitted misjudging demand in its own core power businesses and announced it would halve its dividend and launch a sweeping restructuring. GE is cutting thousands of jobs, and its new chief executive, John Flannery, said 2018 would be a “reset year.”Siemens, like GE, has been caught unprepared for governments’ and companies’ shift away from large, fossil fuel-powered plants to renewables, which make electricity in a decentralized way and without the need to move massive amounts of steam through one of Siemens’s mighty turbines.Meanwhile, gas-powered plants haven’t picked up the slack from embattled coal and nuclear businesses as quickly as both Siemens and GE had anticipated.“The power-generation industry is experiencing disruption of unprecedented scope and speed,” Lisa Davis, a prominent American board member at Siemens with special oversight of the power-and-gas division, said in a statement Thursday. A full 6,100 of the job cuts, or 13% of the 46,800 workforce at the unit, will address overcapacity in the company’s manufacturing of turbines for power plants, a Siemens spokesperson said.More ($): Germany’s Siemens to Slash 6,900 Jobs Amid Shift to Renewable Energylast_img read more

NAFCU urges FASB to reconsider CECL

first_imgThe Federal Accounting Standards Board should reconsider its current expected credit loss standard, NAFCU President and CEO Dan Berger urged in a letter Monday.Berger emphasized the need for any proposed update to consider the unique structure of credit unions as member-owned, not-for-profit institutions. He emphasized NAFCU’s belief that credit unions should not be subject to the proposed update as the costs for credit unions outweigh the benefits.Berger also urged the board to extend by one year the implementation of the CECL standard in light of the delay in finalization. FASB is now expecting to finalize its CECL standard near the end of the second quarter of 2016. continue reading » 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Indonesia, UNICEF sign agreement on COVID-19 vaccine procurement under COVAX Facility

first_imgThe Health Ministry and the United Nations International Children’s Fund (UNICEF) signed on Wednesday an agreement on the procurement of COVID-19 vaccine under the COVAX Facility, a global COVID-19 vaccine allocation plan co-led by the World Health Organization (WHO) that aims to help buy and fairly distribute the vaccine.Through this agreement, Indonesia could ensure access to COVAX’s COVID-19 vaccines once they were available, Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said.”Since the very beginning of the pandemic, Indonesia has consistently underlined the importance of safe, effective and affordable vaccines […] We developed cooperation through bilateral and multilateral tracks [for vaccine procurement],” Retno said on Wednesday.”It is my strong hope that through this memorandum of understanding [MoU], once [COVID-19] vaccine is available we won’t have any delay in delivering it to the people,” she added.UNICEF representative to Indonesia Debora Comini said all countries participating in the COVAX scheme would have special access to the vaccine at affordable prices, once it is available.”All participating countries will have special access at affordable prices, Indonesia is going to be part of this very important initiative,” Debora said.Read also: China coronavirus vaccine may be ready for public in NovemberShe explained that the MoU signing would also allow domestically manufactured COVID-19 vaccines, such as the “Merah Putih” vaccine, to be placed in the international market through UNICEF’s supply division.Through the agreement, Indonesia will also have access to vaccines for other diseases such as the pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV) against pneumococcal disease.”This [PCV] vaccine could save 10,000 children per year in Indonesia,” she said.According to Retno, Indonesia would receive financial assistance for COVAX’s COVID-19 vaccine procurement through the Official Development Assistance (ODA) mechanism.”We’re maintaining intensive communication with the COVAX Facility and the Global Alliance for Vaccine and Immunization [GAVI], including about [the vaccine’s] price, availability, etc. We predict that this vaccine will be available in 2021,” she said.”With the ODA financial assistance, the vaccine would be more affordable than through other means of procurement,” she added.Read also: Jokowi forms national team to accelerate vaccine developmentSeventy-six wealthy nations are now committed to joining the COVAX Facility, including Japan, Norway and Germany.Besides the WHO, COVAX is also co-led by GAVI and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), and is designed to discourage national governments from hoarding COVID-19 vaccine and to focus on first vaccinating the most high-risk people in every country.Its backers say this strategy should lead to lower vaccine costs for everyone and a swifter end to the pandemic that has claimed some 926,000 lives globally as per Tuesday.Wealthy countries that join COVAX will finance the vaccine purchases from their national budgets, and will partner with 92 poorer nations supported through voluntary donations to the plan to ensure vaccines are delivered equitably.COVAX’s aim is to procure and deliver 2 billion doses of approved vaccines by the end of 2021. It currently has nine COVID-19 candidate vaccines in its portfolio, which employ a range of different technologies and scientific approaches.Topics :last_img read more

Plan to fine drunks in Wellington makes progress

first_imgOneNews 12 Sept 2013A decision whether to make public drunkeness in Wellington, including Courtenay Place, an offence will now go to a full council vote.The idea is one of a raft of proposals to deal with problem drinking in the capital’s bars.The proposal was passed by the council’s Strategy and Policy Committee today and will next be debated at a full council meeting.If passed, it is thought to be the first time since the 1970s that public drunkeness was an offence in the city.Wellington City Councillor Iona Pannett says the idea will not work.“If it was ever to be made into law, you’d have to arrest most of the city. Most people drink and get intoxicated,” she said.http://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/plan-fine-drunks-in-wellington-makes-progress-5581302last_img read more
