Her original piece about mental health and suicide, Ceiling In The Floor, was intended to be a single performance in 2015. Entering its fourth year in repertory and its 45th performance, Ceiling has proven to be an important and surprisingly popular show for Thomas and the Lineage Performing Arts Center, largely because of the tenderness and care the piece showed to its subject matter.Thomas is back with another challenging piece, and this time she turns her focus to how we move on after a loved one has passed. Weaving together the true and endearing stories of three women–a daughter losing a mother, a wife losing a husband, and a chaplain with thirteen years of counseling mourners–Life After Death for the Living tells less a story of dying, and more the story of how to live.The show blends live storytelling with three actresses, Marisa Echeverria, Lizzie Gracen, and Tess Lina, live piano performed by George Ramirez, and Thomas’ original choreography with the Lineage Dance Company. The Lineage Performing Arts Center’s black box theater holds only fifty guests at a time, making the intimate show even more personal and up-close. Each evening will include a post-show panel featuring Emily Lau and experts in the field of death and dying.Performances are on Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 7:00 p.m., April 7, 8, 14, and 15 at Lineage Performing Arts Center, 89 S. Fair Oaks Avenue, Pasadena.Tickets are $20.00/advance purchase, and $25.00/door. Student and senior tickets are $15.00/$20.00.

Texas coach gunned down outside youth football game

first_img33ft/iStockBy BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC News(HOUSTON) — A Texas high school football coach was gunned down outside a youth football game over the weekend in a confrontation police say stemmed from a family dispute.Derwyn Lauderdale, 29, a football coach and teacher at Travis High School in Richmond, a suburb of Houston, was shot to death on Saturday afternoon in a parking lot outside a youth football game in Rosenberg, Texas, police said.Rosenberg police officials said the shooting erupted in front of a crowd of people gathered at the Seabourne Creek Sports Complex, including members of youth football teams preparing to play.“What a sad set of circumstances that took place during this event. Children came to play a game they love, only to have it ruined by a career criminal committing an act of family violence,” Rosenberg police Chief Jonathan White said at a news conference. “Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by this tragedy and we will pursue appropriate charges so justice may be served.”The suspected gunman was identified as James Hamilton, 28, of Houston, according to police. It was not immediately clear how Hamilton and Lauderdale were related or what the family feud was about.When Hamilton was taken into custody on suspicion of murder he was found to be in possession of a handgun that had been reported stolen to the Houston Police Department, according to officials.Lauderdale, who was shot once in the stomach, was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.“During the investigation, it was found James Hamilton and Derwyn Lauderdale had an on-going family-related dispute,” police said in a written statement.Rosenberg police released a statement saying that Hamilton has an extensive criminal history that includes previous arrests for violation of a protective order, unlawful carrying of a weapon and terroristic threat causing fear of imminent serious bodily injury.A woman who witnessed the shooting told ABC affiliate station KTRK-TV in Houston that she was sitting in her car with her grandson, who was preparing to play in a football game at the sports complex, when she saw a black Mercedes pull up next to Lauderdale’s car.The witness, who did not want to be identified, said she saw Lauderdale get out of his vehicle with a child and start walking towards the Mercedes. She said the driver of the Mercedes shot Lauderdale once.Officials said Hamilton was still at the scene when police officers arrived and arrested him.Sarah Laberge, the principal of Travis High School, released a statement to students and staff confirming that Lauderdale was a first-year teacher at the school and an assistant coach on the varsity football team.“Dear Tiger families, I am writing with a heavy heart, after learning about the tragic and sudden death of a Travis High School staff member,” Laberge wrote. “This news has shocked our THS community and has left us heartbroken for his family. While we do not have additional information to share at this time, I want to make you aware and ask you to join me in keeping his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.”Lauderdale had written a statement on the high school’s website saying he was looking forward to teaching physical education at the school and coaching the wide receivers on the varsity football team.“I hope to inspire the youth exactly like Kobe Bryant did,” Lauderdale wrote, referring to the former Los Angeles Lakers basketball star who died in a helicopter crash in January.Officials at Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Missouri, also released a statement saying Lauderdale had attended the school and was a standout player on the Bearcats football team from 2010 to 2014. School officials said Lauderdale was a member of the football team’s coaching staff in 2018 and 2019.“We are stunned by this news,” SBU’s director of athletics, Mike Pitts, said in a statement. “Derwyn had been a member of the Bearcat Family for nearly a decade and we will miss him. Our hearts, thoughts, and (especially) prayers go out to Derwyn’s family and to the coaches and players of SBU Football.”Robert Clardy, the university’s head football coach, added, “Words can’t express the loss we’re feeling right now as a Bearcat Family. Derwyn leaves a legacy here that will never be forgotten by his former teammates and coaches. He was a great friend and mentor to all.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

More firms recruiting admin workers online

first_imgThere has been a 60 per cent increase in the number of companies recruitingsecretarial and administrative staff online over the last year. Research by consultancy Mercer reveals that so far this year almosttwo-thirds of employers advertised these jobs via the net compared to 38 percent in 2001. Ninety per cent of those using this method report it is an effective mediumfor recruitment. David Wreford, European principal at Mercer, said: “More companies arenow using the internet as a recruitment tool – it is quick, cost-effective, andapplicants are more likely to be web-literate.” Other popular recruitment methods include temp-to-perm appointments, adoptedby 95 per cent of respondents, and employee referrals, used by eight in 10companies. The survey of 34 major organisations and 13,000 job-holders, forecasts thataverage salary increases for secretarial and administrative staff will fallto3.7 per cent in 2003 from4.1 per cent this year. It suggests more companies are basing pay rises on individual performances,with eight in 10 employers linking pay rises to performance this year, comparedwith six in 10 last year. Wreford added: “In economically tough times, companies need to ensurethey get the best value for money from their employment costs. Using individualperformance as the basis for pay rises helps to motivate staff and encourage ahigh-performance culture.” The study shows the average salary for a secretary in London and the SouthEast is £19,175, £16,025 in the Midlands and South West, and £14,105 in theNorth of England and Scotland. Almost half the companies surveyed now have a policy of allowing eligibleemployees to work reduced hours, whereas only one-fifth offered thisopportunity five years ago. www.mercerHR.com By Ben Willmott More firms recruiting admin workers onlineOn 3 Sep 2002 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed.

At-sea distribution and behavior of streaked shearwaters (Calonectris leucomelas) during the nonbreeding period

first_imgStreaked Shearwaters (Calonectris leucomelas) breed in temperate regions of East and Southeast Asia and have been thought to migrate to tropical regions near the Equator after breeding. We documented the migratory and foraging behavior of this species using global location sensors (GLS). The GLS loggers were attached to 48 breeding birds in 2006 and were subsequently recovered from 38 birds in the following year. The Streaked Shearwaters migrated from the seas around Japan to three wintering areas in the tropics, the seas off northern New Guinea, the Arafura Sea, and the South China Sea (4,000, 5,400, and 3,500 km from the breeding colony, respectively). Most Streaked Shearwaters wintered off northern New Guinea, an area of low primary productivity but high Skipjack Tuna (Katsuwonus pelamis) abundance. Streaked Shearwaters flew for longer periods and landed on the water more frequently around dawn and dusk during the wintering period. This pattern of activity is similar to that of subsurface predators such as tuna, and to that of tropical seabirds that are known to feed with subsurface predators. We suggest that Streaked Shearwaters probably forage in association with subsurface predators in the tropical oceans during the wintering period. Foraging in association with subsurface predators and morphological adaptations for gliding may allow Streaked Shearwaters to forage efficiently in both temperate and tropical environments.last_img read more
