Phoenix Extends Off-Broadway Run


first_img Phoenix Related Shows View Comments The Scott Organ play is directed by Jennifer DeLia. The one-night-stand will last a little bit longer. Phoenix, starring Julia Stiles and James Wirt, has extended its off-Broadway engagement at the Cherry Lane Theatre. Originally scheduled to run through August 23, the dark romantic comedy will now play its final performance on August 28. When Bruce (Wirt) and Sue (Stiles) meet four weeks after an uncharacteristic one-night-stand, Sue has this to say to him: one, I had a great time with you that night and two, let’s never see each other again. Thus begins a 4,000-mile journey well beyond the confines of their carefully structured worlds. Bruce is fueled by an overwhelming but undefined compulsion to join her in Phoenix. Sue is reluctantly charmed by his persistence, but steadfast in her resolve to keep him at bay. Show Closed This production ended its run on Aug. 28, 2014last_img read more


ASA issues warnings over fairytale themed adverts


first_img UK gambling adopts toughest online advertising code to protect underage audiences August 27, 2020 Share Submit The Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) has sanctioned gaming operators over the publication of adverts that could specifically appeal to children.The complaints were made by the campaign group, Fairer Gambling relating to promotions by Fun88.co.uk, Letou.co.uk and ProgressPlay owned m88.com.Three of the complaints were in regards to m88 and were about Fairytale Legends Red Riding Hood, Fairytale Legends Hansel and Gretel, as well as Fairies Forest.The ASA cited part of its decision for upholding the complaints was because the games were available to play on demo mode before signing into the site. However, moving forward as part of its response m88.com ceased the availability of demo mode on the games without going through age verification checks and a sign in process.Further responding, m88.com stated that it was part of its policy that prior to launching any game on their website, the game and its graphics were thoroughly reviewed in order to ensure that there was nothing within it that was likely to have particular appeal to children.The group also stated that addressing all responsible gambling issues with their business partners was an essential and substantial part of their commercial agreement, and included ensuring that ads for their games would not have particular appeal to children. Any breach of that policy, authorised m88.com to terminate the agreement with their business partners.Although the ASA welcomed the response of m88.com, it also deemed that “The ads must not appear again in their current form. We told m88.com to ensure that their gambling ads did not have particular appeal to under-18s.”Also feeling the wrath of the ASA for a similar offence was both Fun88.co.uk and www.letou.co.uk, with the campaign group Fairer Gambling once again complaining that the site had gambling content that could be of a specific appeal to children.A total of eight complaints were received about the operators, with both emphasising that the demo version of the games were only available after the consumer had logged into the site.In conclusion, the ASA upheld six of the eight complaints ruling that they must be removed from the site as they had a specific appeal to youths and appeared on unrestricted parts of the site.

Glenn smart meter bill is top 10 priority for AARP


first_img01Mar Glenn ‘smart meter’ bill is top 10 priority for AARP Tags: Smart Meters Categories: Glenn News,Newscenter_img National organization says analog option should remainAARP Michigan has adopted among its top 10 legislative priorities for 2018 a bill introduced by state Rep. Gary Glenn allowing customers of Consumers Energy and DTE the freedom to opt out of having a “smart” meter installed on their homes without being forced to pay an up front and monthly fees, as is now the case.The Michigan chapter of AARP, a national organization of more than 38 million members, said House Bill 4220 would allow customers to keep their old analog meter and replace already-installed smart-meter technology with an analog meter. Some customers consider smart meters, which provide utilities with real-time metering, are a violation of private property rights and could compromise data privacy and cyber security.Glenn (R-Williams Township), who is author of the bill and chair of the House Energy Policy Committee, said opposition to smart meters is growing.“I have conducted public hearings on this issue and there is a keen interest in affordable ways to opt out of smart meters,” Glenn said. “It is very apparent that utility customers across the state have valid concerns about their health and privacy.“Multiple overflow public hearings on this issue reveal a keen interest in affordable ways to opt out of smart meters, especially for senior citizens on severely limited budgets,” Glenn said. “It is very apparent that utility customers across the state, many of them retirees, have strongly-held concerns about the effect of smart meter technology.“AARP’s making this legislation one of their top priorities indicates that the Legislature is not the only place senior citizens are registering their concerns,” Glenn said. “I’m pleased to have AARP’s support for my efforts to give people a choice on how their electricity usage is recorded.”Consumers Energy and DTE Energy now charge residents nearly $70 upfront and nearly $10 a month afterwards to opt out of programs involving advanced electricity meters installed outside residential customers’ homes.Attorney General Bill Schuette took utilities to court to try to protect customers from being forced to accept installment of smart meters without penalty, but the state Court of Appeals ruled that unless state law is changed, homeowners can legally be charged for refusing to accept the technology.Glenn’s bill is under consideration in the House Energy Policy Committee.#####last_img read more
