Beyonce Announces World Tour, Stops At Barclays Center

first_imgWhat perfect timing, Mrs. Carter. The morning after performing on America’s biggest stage, Beyonce has announced that she will hitting the road on a giant world tour, dubbed ‘The Mrs. Carter Show’. Bey will hit 24 cities throughout Europe between April and May, before returning to North America for another 20+ dates. The tour will see Beyonce do a four night run at London’s O2, headline the BET Experience at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and wrap up with a giant show at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn on August 3rd.The Super Bowl generally doesn’t pay it’s half time show performers, so this tour was clearly strategically placed to capitalize on last night’s massive performance. Solid idea, Beyonce. But let’s talk about the name of this tour for a second – ‘The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour Starring Beyonce” – it’s kind of strange. A little too much there. Whatever.

Championship engine builder, car owner Robert Yates honored by the sport he loved

first_imgCHARLOTTE, N.C. – Robert Yates showed up at the NASCAR Hall of Fame that late afternoon last May genuinely not knowing if this would be the year – if that would be the day – he heard his name called as part of the official unveiling of the five-person 2017 Hall of Fame induction class.Already months into his valiant fight against liver cancer, Yates walked into the Grand Hall and was immediately surrounded by longtime friends and greeted fondly by supporters and race fans, all who had gathered for the historical announcement.MORE: Legends, star power highlight HOF weekend | Meet the 2018 Hall of Fame class Three times previously the NASCAR champion engine builder and team owner had been nominated for induction. So when his name was announced as part of the 2017 group of honorees, the room erupted in joy and tears.“I believe that was the fourth year he was on the ballot so we weren’t sure how it would go, just praying he would get voted in to the Hall of Fame,’’ Yates’ son Doug recalled. “He was so happy. He gave up his life for this sport. That was his choice but that was what it takes to be great at something and he did that. And he wouldn’t tell you that, but I will.“It was the most gratifying moment of his whole career.”And that is saying a lot.The man who had built so many strong engines, may have been weaker of body but the same spirit and contagious positive energy he brought to the race track permeated through the crowd that day – it was easy to see the special extra something that makes Yates a stock car legend.Sadly, Yates died five months later on Oct. 2 at the age of 74. His family will take part in next Friday’s NASCAR Hall of Fame induction ceremony in honor of this very honorable man.Yates contributions to NASCAR are diverse and significant. And lasting.He started his career as an engine builder in the late 1960s under the tutelage of Waddell Wilson and ultimately fellow NASCAR Hall of Famer Junior Johnson.He was the chief engine builder for Hall of Famer Bobby Allison’s 1983 Cup championship team and built the engines that Hall of Famer Richard Petty drove to his final two victories – record 199th and 200th wins.Following his time under the hood, Yates moved into a team ownership role and fielded the iconic No. 28 Texaco/Havoline car driven by the late Davey Allison and also the No. 88 Ford that Hall of Famer Dale Jarrett drove to the 1999 Cup championship. Allison produced Yates’ first win as an owner in 1989 at Talladega Superspeedway and Jarrett secured the beloved owner his last Cup trophy in 2005, also at Talladega.Ernie Irvan, Hall of Famer Ricky Rudd and Elliott Sadler also won premier series races driving for Yates, who collected 57 Cup trophies as an owner including three Daytona 500 wins earned by Davey Allison (1992) and Jarrett (1996 and 2000).His inclusion in the Hall of Fame seems a proper and fitting way to wrap up and recognize decades of hard work and high expectation. What a career Robert Yates made.“I’d say my dad felt very blessed to be involved in the sport of NASCAR and the time he was involved really left itself to opportunities,’’ Doug Yates reflected. “When he started at Holman-Moody in the late 1960s that was the best school for an engine builder — to be there working alongside Waddell Wilson and all the other greats, building engines for the Wood Brothers and Junior Johnson and the famed Ford drivers of the time.“Then to go and work for Junior Johnson who was one of his heroes.”Doug Yates, 50, who carried on the family’s engine business with high regard – he was named NASCAR’s 2011 Engine Builder of the Year — recalled those early days recognizing his dad’s work ethic was comprised of equal parts high expectation and devotion.“Back then you just worked 24-7, you didn’t have a lot of resources,’’ Doug said. “During the day, my dad would do the machine work on the engines to get them ready to assemble at night, and he said one night he was in there working, and he was about out of energy, and Junior [Johnson] came through there, patted him on the back and gave him a pep talk and said, ‘We’re going to win this race this weekend.’“And dad said it just felt like it gave him so much motivation to keep going. One of the great influences in his life was how Junior Johnson was a leader and a hero. That was a great experience for him.”And Yates soon would be regarded a leader and hero to others — as it turned out not only for his work on race cars but for his strength away from the garage fighting cancer.Those who worked closely with Yates recognized and fully appreciated his mechanical talent and that led to more opportunity for the Charlotte native.“I’m a great believer that things happen for a reason and he was as well,’’ Doug Yates said. “That ultimately lent itself to the owners Harry [Rainier] and J.T. [Lundy] saying, ‘Robert, we’re done racing. We’d like for you to buy the race team and the No. 28 Davey Allison Ford.’“My dad was really hesitant. He never got into the sport to be a car owner, he just really focused on doing his best job every day whatever the task was. That was how he operated.“So he told Davey [Allison] about this opportunity and Davey said, ‘Robert, if you’ll do this I will never leave you. You’ve got my word.’ They shook on it and Davey instilled the confidence in my dad to buy Robert Yates Racing.”The Robert Yates Racing team began officially in 1989, quickly establishing itself of championship caliber with Allison winning 15 times in the next five years and finishing third in the Cup championship twice (1991 and ’92).But Allison died in a helicopter accident two weeks after winning at Richmond, Va. in 1993 and understandably, the tragedy had a profound effect on Yates.“That was probably the hardest thing for him. … It was really a moment of do we carry on or not?’’ Doug Yates said. “I think he carried on for Davey and also the people that it put so much into getting him there. You don’t want to let them down. “Then what happened to Ernie [suffered life-threatening injuries in an accident during a race at Michigan International Speedway in 1994] and ultimately winning the championship with Dale Jarrett.“It was not an easy road by any means but it was his platform.”“NASCAR gets the credit, the France family, for giving us this platform to do that. Dad was such a humble person. Being a car owner was not his dream. Doing a great job at whatever he did was what he did.“And just timing and the way things evolved and being good at what he did and being at the right place at the right time gave him a platform.’’And Yates used that platform to its full historical potential – enjoying decades of hard-earned success in a life well-lived and much respected. He was one of those rare, rare people who could rest well, knowing he made a positive difference and that not a soul had a disparaging word or thought.That he was adored by so many was never more evident than last spring at the NASCAR Hall of Fame.A big smile never left Yates’ face as received the congratulatory hugs and handshakes.“I don’t even know if I’ll sleep tonight,” Yates said in the moments after finding out he was a new inductee.“I’m so honored and I love this sport, and I want this sport to do the same thing it did for me, again and again and again.”last_img read more

Salon Series continues in Snite Museum of Art

first_imgOnce a month, Notre Dame students, staff and faculty gather in the Snite Museum of Art after hours to analyze a selected piece of artwork. Aimed at creating a relaxed space to view and discuss the works in the Museum, the Snite Salon Series began in January 2013, Bridget Hoyt, curator of education and academic programs for the Snite Museum, said.“The purpose is to give people the opportunity to dialogue with each other and dialogue with a work of art. … It’s an opportunity to get to know works of art in the Snite’s collection in a pretty intimate way, to build a relationship with a work of art over time and in conversation with others,” she said.The group focuses on a single work in the Snite’s collection each month, Hoyt said.“People can take a slow and long look at one work of art,” she said.“Through conversation, people end up with a different understanding of the work than they started with.”Hoyt said she leads the program every month but tries to remove herself from the conversation as much as possible in order to allow the group to come to its own conclusions.“I encourage the conversation to be driven by the viewers’ observations,” Hoyt said. “The more diverse the group, the more interesting the conversation.”The series attracts a wide array of undergraduate and graduate students from an array of majors and professors from all disciplines, Hoyt said.Catherine Mary Barr, a freshman engineering major, said she attends the event for the intimate setting in which to view the paintings and for the chance to learn from others.“If I were to just come here on my own and look at them, I would not get the rich insight that the other students bring to it — especially students who take art history or art in general, who know all the different techniques and uses of lighting,” Barr said. “Every time I come here, I walk away with really deep insights, not only on the painting but also on the time period, the artist and the theme and messages.”Hoyt said the series began as a way to engage students with the museum, but the Snite also holds other events to help immerse students in the museum.“We have a student advisory group that runs programming primarily for students,” she said. “We also have a group of student gallery teachers who teach other Notre Dame classes that visit the museum, and we have a student collecting group that acquires contemporary photography for the museum. …We also do yoga in the galleries and guided meditation in the salons.”The Snite Salon Series meets the last Tuesday of every month at 5 p.m. in the lobby of the Snite Museum of Art.Tags: art history, Snite Museum of Art, Snite Salon Serieslast_img read more

Jenkins co-sponsors Vatican dialogue on climate change

first_imgUniversity President Fr. John Jenkins and Cardinal Peter Turkson, the prefect of the Vatican’s Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, cosponsored a Vatican-sponsored dialogue on energy transition from June 12-14, the University announced in a press release. The dialogue was titled “The Energy Transition and Care for Our Common Home.”On Friday, Pope Francis addressed the summit and responded to questions. His remarks were made public.Jenkins expressed gratitude for the work of the summit and its participants’ dedication.“Collectively, these leaders will influence the planet’s future, perhaps more than any in the world,” Jenkins said. “I am deeply grateful for their commitment to the transition to a low-carbon future while providing the energy needed to support the integral human development of every member of the human family.”Former Notre Dame faculty helped Jenkins lead the effort at the summit, the release said.“Carolyn Woo, former dean of the Mendoza College of Business at Notre Dame, and Leo Burke, professor emeritus of management, spearheaded efforts on behalf of the Vatican and Notre Dame to encourage the energy industry and its investors on a path toward energy transition,” the press release said about the events.The sponsors of the dialogue highlighted the importance of morality in solving the problem of climate change.“Addressing this social-ecological crisis requires radical change at all levels, both personal and collective,” Turkson and Jenkins said in a joint statement. “This transition needs the support of markets, significant adoption of renewables as a source of energy, increased efficiency in the use of existing resources, new technologies, farsighted policies, educated civil society, and new forms of global leadership and cooperation. As neither the energy transition nor climate change can be reduced to economic, technological, and regulatory issues alone, there is the need for a moral voice.”The summit put forth specific proposals to address the problem of climate change — a problem that Pope Francis highlighted in his Encyclical Letter, Laudato Si: On Care for Our Common Home. It recognized that oil and gas companies along with the global investment community and others are also involved and agreed with the need for a change toward a lower emissions economy.“The participants discussed the paths forward with a specific focus on the integral role of a just transition that addresses the needs of disadvantaged populations, importance of carbon pricing toward the reduction of emissions and necessity for disclosures to provide clear information on strategies and actions, governance process and performance,“ Jenkins and Turkson said in the release. “From these discussions, two joint statements relating to carbon pricing and proper disclosures are formulated.”Jenkins and Turkson said they were inspired by the Pope’s encyclical and hope that their work helps to answer the questions posed throughout the document.Notre Dame developed a plan for sustainability in 2016, which included green roofs and limiting energy waste and water pollution.Most of the participants of the dialogue signed statements of support for carbon pricing and disclosures on climate change risk.Tags: Climate change, Pope Francis, University President Fr.

Dimond Marquise shines brighter with disc brake version in Kona

first_imgSince it seems that all the best tri bikes are getting disc brake versions lately, Dimond is showing their hand as well. Mixing it up on the big island with the bigger bike brands, Dimond has launched their latest version of the Marquise – complete with a new braking system.Starting with the same frame design as the rim brake Marquise, the Marquise Disc moves to flat mount calipers front and rear for improved braking. To keep the wheels in check and provide perfect alignment, 12mm thru axles are used front and rear. Details are still pretty limited, but the press release hints at bigger tire clearance thanks to the lack of rim brake calipers as well. Each frame still includes their integrated Lunchbox and TOTES storage for carrying your supplies needed for a 112 mile ride.The first bikes are on hand in Kona and available for test rides, with production models only available for pre-order, with delivery in January 2019. Each frameset is priced at $7,499 which includes custom paint. Complete and custom builds will also available through Dimond’s website.dimondbikes.comlast_img read more

Vacation Film Franchise Is Being Turned into a Musical Comedy

first_img Producers Ken Davenport and Kurt Deutsch have announced that they have optioned the musical rights to the Griswolds, the characters from the hit Vacation film franchise. The special arrangement with Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures will develop a new tuner titled Broadway Vacation.“Both Kurt and I came of age on the Vacation films series and can’t wait to bring the Griswolds to Broadway,” said Davenport. “If audiences thought their cinematic misadventures were funny, wait till Clark and his family get to Times Square.”“Millions of tourists come to New York for the first time every year and each one has a singular experience. The Griswolds’ maiden trip to the city will be no exception, though in this case, theirs is guaranteed to be outrageous, unique, hilarious—and well-choreographed,” said Deutsch. “While the characters are familiar, Broadway Vacation will take them on a completely original musical journey—and on a trip to New York that they will never forget.”The Griswolds first hit the screen in the classic 1983 comedy National Lampoon’s Vacation, which centered on the disasters befalling a family on a cross-country road trip. Getting to America’s favorite adventure destination, Walley World, was a comedic hassle for Clark Griswold (portrayed on-screen by Chevy Chase), his wife, Ellen (played by Beverly D’Angelo) and their bickering kids, Rusty and Audrey. The film became a major box office success. As the franchise continued, the Griswolds took a European Vacation, a Vegas Vacation and even shared a Christmas Vacation. In 2015, New Line Cinema released an updated screen version of the franchise.Creative team, casting and production timelines for Broadway Vacation will be announced at a later date.Look back at the original trailer for National Lampoon’s Vacation below.

Little Shop’s Start, the Future of Hercules, New Mermaid Songs & More from Alan Menken on Show People

first_imgHere are some of the must-see highlights:NICE UP-AND-COMERS“My daughter went to the University of Michigan for musical theater. She goes, ‘Oh, there’s this boy Darren [Criss], who is playing guitar in this coffee shop. He plays a lot of your songs.’ So I went in. This young boy is hunched over his guitar singing, ‘I wanna be where the people are.’ I was so touched. I left him a $50 tip. I would hear about, ‘This is Pasek and Paul.’ I said, ‘Oh, isn’t that nice.’ And look at them now. My niece went to the Hunter School with both Bobby Lopez and Lin-Manuel [Miranda]. My sister would tell me about these very talented boys. I’d go, ‘Oh, isn’t that nice.’ And look at them now.” Alan Menken at off-Broadway’s Orpheum Theatre, where theoriginal Little Shop of Horrors played for five years(Photo: Twitter/@AlMenken) Tammy Blanchard Christian Borle LITTLE SHOP BELONGS SOMEWHERE INFESTED“WPA Theater [where Little Shop of Horrors originatlly played in 1982 before transferring to the Orpheum Theatre] was on the third floor of Fifth Avenue and 19th Street. We were right underneath a massage parlor. It was a 99-seat theater. The air conditioning worked sporadically. Little Shop belongs in a small, intimate space. You know, if the sanitation was a little worse, it would be even better. If there were rats, it’d be even better. Little Shop really belongs in a hole in the wall. That’s where it was conceived. I like the fact that it’s being done this way [now at the Westside Theatre]. Howard [Ashman] said, ‘I think it’s the dark side of Grease,’ and everything fell into place from there. It was a phenomenon. We instantly had producers banging on the door. There was clearly something very, very special about this. Friends would say, ‘You guys got a big green goldmine here.’” Lin-Manuel Miranda HOWARD ASHMAN’S SECRET“Howard was sick from the time we were working on The Little Mermaid [Ashman died of AIDS-related illness in 1991 at the age of 40], but he wasn’t telling anyone. He wasn’t telling me. When there was any physical symptom, he would say it was something else. We had to keep it a secret ourselves because in those days, you wouldn’t be working. I will say when the Disney company finally had to be told, they were great. But Little Mermaid, Beauty and Aladdin were all created with that huge shadow over him.”NEW SONGS IN THE LITTLE MERMAID“We’re like four or five new songs in. We’re really having a good time writing it together. We’re writing a new song for Eric. We’re writing a new song for Ariel. We’re writing a new song for Scuttle.”WILL HERCULES GO THE DISTANCE?”I’ve wanted to do [a staging of Hercules] for years. It was a little bit like Newsies, where sometimes material just marinates very well: Newsies marinated. Hercules marinated. Coming back to it, we brought much more dimension and richness to it. I don’t know what the plan is yet. We’re all going to try to figure it out because it was very special.” Did you know Show People with Paul Wontorek is available as a podcast? Check it out on iTunes and Spotify. Illustration by Ryan Casey Alan Menken with Little Shop starsTammy Blanchard, Jonathan Groff and Christian Borle (Photo: Emilio Madrid) Composer Alan Menken has won 11 Grammy Awards, eight Academy Awards and a Tony Award and has scored the wildly popular Disney properties The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and Newsies. Fans recently clamored to see the Public Works limited run staging of Hercules , which featured five new songs. After the incredible success of the live action adaptations of Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin (which each grossed over $1 billion internationally), he’s now working on new songs for an upcoming big screen The Little Mermaid with Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. But before all of these shining, shimmering, splendid projects came to be, Menken and his longtime collaborator, the late Howard Ashman, joined forces for Little Shop of Horrors, an instant hit that is now receiving a buzzed-about off-Broadway revival with Jonathan Groff, Tammy Blanchard and Christian Borle. Menken discussed Little Shop’s early days, knowing Lin-Manuel Miranda, Darren Criss and other power players way back when and more on Show People with Paul Wontorek.Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 28:19Loaded: 0.00%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -28:19 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedEnglishAudio Tracken (Main), selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
