Andrew Rannells Talks Monopolizing Obama at Hamilton

first_img Falsettos Stage and screen favorite Andrew Rannells stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers on March 31 and as you can see from the below videos, was as adorable as ever. In his delightful way, the Tony nominee revealed that during his brief reign in Hamilton, President Obama came to visit and he accidentally monopolized him. Rannells is still tortured by the belief the cast was thinking: “why does the temp get more time to talk to the President?” Along with explaining why “sex blocking” is now on his resume, he also couldn’t hide his excitement about returning to Broadway in Falsettos; previews begin at the Walter Kerr Theatre on September 29.

Defensive effort leads Miller girls

first_imgPracticing defense takes up most of Miller’s practices, and the repetition paid off Wednesday night as the top-seeded Rebels earned a 69-32 victory over La Canada in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division II-AA playoffs. Miller earned its 17th consecutive victory, improving to 27-2, and advanced to play Corona Santiago, a 65-64 winner over Harvard Westlake, on Saturday night. Wilkins also substituted five players at a time twice in the opening quarter with the hope of wearing down La Canada. “I knew their team wasn’t that deep, so I figured we could keep fresh legs in the game early,” he said. Freshman Chloe Wells led all scorers with 21 points, while junior Briana Hall added 19. “I just felt confident tonight and I knew we would win,” Hall said. “I just felt it.” La Canada (17-11) was led by Emily Ballard’s 11 points. The Spartans kept things close for the first 10 minutes, but Wells and Hall each had four points in the final 3:30 of the second quarter to lead 31-16 at halftime. The Rebels removed any lingering doubt by scoring the first seven points of the third quarter. Wilkins said the playoffs are a lot about the mental attitude, but said his team would probably have to do a better job of rebounding to make a long run in the postseason. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Rebels, winners of the Citrus Belt League with a 14-0 record, have held their opponents under 36 points for the last 13 games. “We go over defensive sets and try to get easy baskets off our defense,” Wilkins said. “Defense is all heart and attitude, and we take it to heart that we don’t get beat.” The Rebels pressed from the opening tipoff to the final buzzer, and they scored the first six points while forcing turnovers in the backcourt. Miller’s press is unique in that one of their tallest players, 6-foot junior Kenisha McKee, guards the inbound pass. “They are bigger and very athletic, and we have two 5-foot-2 guards in the backcourt,” La Canada coach Tamar Hill said. “They swarm the ball and anticipate well.” center_img FONTANA – The guiding philosophy espoused by Miller girls basketball coach Mel Wilkins is simple. “Defense is not an option,” Wilkins said. last_img read more

Orange you ready for Christmas?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Thanksgiving has whizzed by and the smells, tastes and sights of the season are beginning to infuse throughout homes across Ohio. Oranges, tangelos and grapefruits have always been a played vivid role in my Christmas memories. We found oranges in the toe of our stockings, in Grandma’s orange apricot balls (last Christmas edition) and in Christmas morning orange salad. One Christmas, Grandma even had us making a child’s worst craft nightmare — orange clove pomanders. They smelled great but if memory serves me correct, it was the most tedious and boring craft poking whole cloves to cover an entire orange!The FFA plays a huge part in my Christmas citrus memories. I am not sure when The FFA began providing the logistics for December fruit delivery to Ohio. My Dad doesn’t remember selling fruit during his high school years in the 1950s. But by the 1970s our family excitedly waited for the Naval and Pink grapefruit to arrive shortly after Thanksgiving from the local FFA boys. Nothing could beat the taste of those sweet juicy Navels. By the 80s, fruit sales were in full swing when Paul remembers selling 112 cases and receiving a plaque as Top Citrus Salesman. Years later our own sons Jake and Luke joined in and our house was filled with cases of fruit waiting to be delivered during the holiday season. The sale hasn’t changed much over the years except now selections include add-ons such as strawberries, apples, cheese, nuts and even barbecue sauce.More important than providing fruit for my Christmas memories is the significance of the fruit sales as a fundraiser. Melissa Bell of Ohio FFA states that the fruit sale is vital to chapters and the Ohio FFA. Chapters raise multiple thousands of dollars — one chapter even raised enough to build a greenhouse. Ohio FFA receives nearly $50,000 in rebates from fruit sales that help fund special state FFA projects, state officer projects and the State FFA Convention and awards program. One of their biggest suppliers is the Florida Farm Bureau. An interesting ag factoid is that Florida and California combine to produce 97% of orange production, with Arizona and Texas filling in the remaining 3%. Thanks this year to Northeastern and Fairbanks FFA for filling our Christmas citrus order.Thanks to the FFA logistics Santa could always put an orange in my stocking for Christmas. Paul and I passed the tradition of putting oranges in our boys’ stockings. It never crossed our minds to the reason we did it, we just did. My parents both said as kids they didn’t have stockings at Christmas. They admitted they put oranges our stockings because they were healthy, plus they took up a lot of room so my parents didn’t have to put much else in the stockings.Other friends of all ages responded in overwhelming numbers that the folklore and traditions about the Christmas orange were not known. Oranges were put in stockings primarily because they were inexpensive and took up a lot of room in the stocking. I am sure I appreciate that reason more as a parent then I did as a child. It will be interesting to see if the availability of year-round fruit will decrease the excitement to receiving a piece of fruit Christmas morning. Still without answers about the origins of the orange tradition, I hoped that Google could help me. Here is what I found.In 16th century Britain, it became all the craze to build “orangeries” which were greenhouses where oranges were grown in pots. This being an expensive venture, oranges were primarily enjoyed by the wealthy. The poor enjoyed them only as a rare treat. Oranges were enjoyed during the 12 days of Christmas.Another folktale tells a story of a man in Turkey that was so poor he didn’t have money for his three daughters’ dowries. St. Nick threw 3 bags of gold down the chimney, which landed in the three daughters’ stockings hanging by the fire to dry. The Christmas orange symbolizes the gold coins left in toe.By the late 19th century, transportation made oranges more available nationwide during the Christmas season. During the Depression, oranges became a treasured commodity to children with stories of filling stockings with treasured fruit and nuts. Laura Ingalls Wilder even retells a story of receiving a Christmas orange in her stocking.My favorite story of all is that the slices of the orange represent the ability to share what you have with others. It’s a great reminder that that giving and sharing can cost no more than that of an orange. Bottom line: Stock up on your citrus from the FFA, buy small stockings and have a citrus filled Christmas! Christmas Citrus Salad 1 pink grapefruit, peeled3 Navel oranges, peeled2 tangelos, peeled2-3 Tablespoon powdered sugar½-1 tsp.

Breaking Down the Role of the Video Editing Supervisor

first_imgWe cover everything you need to know about the Video Editing Supervisor, how to work with one, and how you can become one.While there are arguments to make about the value of every aspect of a film or video project’s production, I’ve always felt that the post-production process is truly the most important. Yes, a person writing a script wields unlimited possibility, and a pre-production team can decide on any manner of roles, styles, or locations. A director and a DP can build a world visually from the ground up. But it’s the post team — the video editors and motion artists — who ultimately bring everything together.The video editing process is where all the great pieces of the puzzle finally come together. And, more often than not, all the problems or mistakes contained therein get fixed. The final product is something everyone can be proud of.When you’re just starting off, whether you’re a solo producer and shooter or an aspiring editor learning the ropes, the editing process can seem pretty straightforward. You shoot footage, take it into the edit, and boom — you’re done.However, as you’ll quickly learn once you get into the world of turnkey video production companies and full-service post-production houses, the editing role quickly becomes very complicated, often requiring many different editors with many different specialties and roles.At the heart of these bigger post-production houses and workflows are the all-important video editing supervisors. So, let’s go over what the title is, what the role entails, and how to become one.What Is a Video Editing Supervisor?A Video Editing Supervisor has many roles in the editing process. (Image by FrameStockFootages.)A video editing supervisor is a person (or sometimes persons) who plans, coordinates, oversees, and reviews every step of a video edit in the post-production process.This is a middle-management type of role; a video editing supervisor works directly with clients to understand the scope of their video editing projects and to coordinate the work with a team of editors. These projects can be for a few simple edits or upwards of hundreds of individual videos and deliverables.Defining the Role and WorkflowThe Video Editing Supervisor oversees a number of technical aspects of a project. (Image by senrakawa.)While the role may vary from company to company, generally speaking, a video editing supervisor is directly above a team of editors. This includes any number of senior, junior, and assistant editors, as well as color correction and audio specialists, and all manner of motion graphics, 2D and 3D animators, and all post-production providers.In my experience, working in-house with a medium-sized, full-service video production company (with around twenty employees), the video editing supervisor would be the point person once a project wrapped shooting. All footage, assets, and information from clients goes to the video editing supervisor, who then directs the workflow.This often includes — but is not limited to — the following:Safely securing and backing up all footage.Organizing all footage, files, and assets.Creating a project timeline.Giving assignments, roles, and deadlines.Checking in and problem-solving setbacks.Organizing exports.Quality control reviews.Managing exports, uploads, etc.Organizing final deliverables.However, by its nature, a lot can go wrong or change during an edit. So, quite often, the video editing supervisor is the one who steps in to make the hard decisions on how to solve these problems. Are important shots out of focus? Did footage get corrupted during an upload? How much time does a motion graphic artist really need to animate a logo?These are questions and problems a video editing supervisor must solve quickly and creatively in the face of an impending deadline.How to Become a Video Editing SupervisorA successful Video Editing Supervisor needs to be able to manage a team and work well with individuals. (Image by Gorodenkoff.)In some ways, it makes sense to say that the video editing supervisor is simply the most senior member of the post-production team. However, that’s not always the case. A good video editing supervisor needs to have a solid background in video editing and understand at least the basics of every program, application, and role on the team.A supervisor also needs to be a good leader, manager, and organizer of many different moving parts. The best video editing supervisors I’ve worked for and with have been a good mix of both — knowledgeable and talented  but also good with people, providing positive support for the rest of the team.If you’re interested in becoming a video editing supervisor, I’d suggest you start as an editor, ideally with a larger company or team. From there, you can move up from assistant to junior to senior, while developing your craft and skills. If you enjoy communicating and working with others, you can branch into the management side of things — the video editing supervisor.Cover image by Gorodenkoff.For more video editing roles, insights, and advice, check out these resources below.The Best Video Editing Programs: Final Cut Pro vs. Premiere ProGlowing Results: Grading Skin Tones in DaVinci ResolveThe Secret to Motion Blur in Adobe Premiere ProA Guide on Soliciting Feedback and Review for Film DraftsPocket 4K and Pocket 6K Owners — BRAW Comes to Premiere Prolast_img read more

Stags earn another shot

Cowboys Lasso Giants, 31-21

first_imgARLINGTON, Texas — DeMarco Murray’s workload is a frequently asked question during the week for the Dallas Cowboys. There is no doubt about the answer when the game is on the line.The NFL’s leading rusher is going to get the ball.Murray had already become the first running back in league history to start the season with seven straight 100-yard games when the Cowboys went to him seven times on a clock-killing drive that helped wrap up their sixth straight victory, 31-21 over the New York Giants on Oct. 19.“He’s extremely strong,” owner Jerry Jones said. “I would say you have to put the speed that he has for his size, but the strength would be right behind. Because he is strong, because he is violent the way he runs the ball, I think he can handle 25 carries a game and not be too much of a risk to his health.”The fourth-year back from Oklahoma reached 100 yards on a 1-yard run early in the fourth quarter to break Hall of Famer Jim Brown’s 56-year-old record of six straight games with at least 100 to start the 1958 season with Cleveland.Murray, on pace for just the sixth 400-carry season, finished with 128 yards and a late touchdown on a 1-yard plunge — a play after a catch by Dez Bryant was ruled a touchdown and overturned on replay.“Nowhere am I trying to say that I’m at (Brown’s) level by any means,” said Murray, who played through an ankle injury sustained in the first half and now has 913 yards through seven games. “Just a great player and a great person, but I’m not even in that category at all.”Tony Romo matched his season high with three touchdown passes, including the first two-touchdown game of second-year tight end Gavin Escobar’s career. But if Romo truly is becoming the second option in the Dallas offense, he is perfectly happy handing the leading role to Murray.“I love that kid,” said Romo, who was 17 of 23 for 279 yards with an interception. “He really exemplifies everything you want in a player. He’s hard-working. He’s humble. He’s a team-first guy. He’s talented. He’s explosive.”Things to consider after the Cowboys (6-1) kept rolling a week after beating Super Bowl champion Seattle on the road. It is their best start since winning six of their first seven on the way to a 13-3 finish in 2007, when they were the top seed in the NFC before losing to New York in their first playoff game.(SCHUYLER DIXON, AP Sports Writer) TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Trans Mountain outlines construction plans for next six months in Alberta BC

first_img(THE CANADIAN PRESS) VANCOUVER, B.C. – Trans Mountain has filed a six-month construction schedule with the National Energy Board for the expansion of the pipeline.The company says work has been underway since last fall at the Westridge Marine Terminal in Burnaby, B.C., and will continue, along with additional work in the province’s Lower Mainland.In July, it says it will begin developing the Westridge Marine Terminal tunnel portal at Burnaby Mountain and relocate existing infrastructure to expand the Burnaby Terminal. It also says work on a 290-kilometre stretch of pipeline between Edmonton and Jasper National Park will begin in August and include surveying, staking and flagging the right-of-way.Banners unfurled and flying under the Ironworkers Memorial bridge, where demonstrators opposed to Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline expansion are suspended.

ICBC reminds drivers to use caution in parking lots during the holiday

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – ICBC is reminding drivers to use caution when driving through parking lots during the holiday season.ICBC says some drivers mistakenly believe that driving in parking lots is ‘safer’ due to lower travel speeds, but drivers need to continue practicing their safe driving habits, even while travelling in parking lots.Parking lots present drivers with unique challenges such as increased congestion and heavy pedestrian activity. The holiday season could add a layer of distraction with people more apt to be preoccupied with their shopping list or finding a parking spot. While most parking lot crashes happen at low speeds and only result in vehicle damage, dealing with the aftermath of a collision is the quickest way to put a damper on the holiday spirit.According to ICBC, about 150,000 crashes happened in parking lots last year resulting in 5,400 injuries.ICBC receives hundreds of thousands of vehicle damage claims every year, with costs exceeding $1.5 billion.Drivers are encouraged to apply a bit of holiday cheer, be courteous and have a bit more patience during this time of year.Here are some safety tips:The rules of the road still apply, even on private property: Drivers should know that the law still applies, even in mall parking lots. Avoid cutting diagonally through a lot – travel only in the appropriate lanes. Don’t use your phone while driving, instead, program your navigation or holiday tunes before you start your car.Have your car facing out in your parking spot: This position is safest for drivers because it helps you avoid the risk of reversing into a lane with potential blind spots when leaving.Park further away, if you can: Instead of circling endlessly to get a spot that’s closest to the mall entrance, pick a place that’s further away. You’ll avoid a high-traffic area where you’re more likely to crash with another vehicle or hit a pedestrian.Slow down and be on alert: Drivers should drive slowly in parking lots to have enough time to react to an unexpected vehicle backing out of their parking spot or an unanticipated pedestrian, especially young children, which may be harder to see.Pay attention to the arrows and stop signs: Many parking lots are quite narrow, restricting specific lanes to a single direction. Pay attention to the signs and markings on the road to avoid getting into a crash.Don’t block traffic: Deciding to follow a shopper, then waiting for them to load their car, buckle up and leave, jams up traffic behind you and likely takes you much longer than if you had just found a spot further away. Sitting idle in a lane can leave you vulnerable to a collision, and you could be blocking other drivers who are trying to move.Let it go: No sense in having a showdown with another driver for a parking spot. Move along, and maybe that good karma will net you something nice this season.For more information and driving tips, you can visit ICBC.comlast_img read more
