Hamilton’s Christopher Jackson Keeps His Cool as Local News Anchors Wig Out

first_imgLet’s go ahead and give Broadway favorite Christopher Jackson the key to the city after getting through this truly bizarre local news segment. Hamilton’s George Washington stopped by the Vegas buffet of crazy that is Fox’s Good Day New York, and he remained remarkably cool as Greg Kelly and Rosanna Scotto did the following:1. Conduct the interview while wearing colonial garb2. Consistently interrupt him3. Imply that the general public was apprehensive about Lin-Manuel Miranda’s abilities to write a hip-hop musical4. Genuinely not seem to understand how a hip-hop musical about American history could be something other than “mockery”5. Sign off with a freestyle rap joking about drive-by shootingsAgain, we can’t stress enough how well Jackson conducted himself in spite of all this. Later, he took to Twitter to write, “That’s life in the damn circus… #notsurprised #speechless.” Take a look at the seven-minute (?!) segment below if you can—if only for Jackson’s comments on the show and his impressively unfazed demeanor. Hamilton is currently playing the Richard Rodgers Theatre. from $149.00 Related Shows Star Files View Comments Christopher Jackson Hamiltonlast_img read more


Danish coal consumption continues falling

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享CPH Post:Denmark has long championed the transition to more sustainable energy sources, and that is being reflected in a steep decline in coal consumption at a national level.New figures from the Energistyrelsen energy agency reveal that Danish coal consumption fell by 25.5 percent from 2016 to 2017, while the utilisation of sustainable sources rose by 11.4 percent over the same period.“It’s good news that energy from coal has dropped by more than a quarter in 2017. Despite the fluctuation from year to year, it shows that it’s going in the right direction in terms of restructuring the coal-powered power plants and the government’s goal to completely phase out coal by 2030,” said the energy minister, Lars Christian Lilleholt.The report showed that Danish consumption of coal has fallen by 81.4 percent since 1994, while oil consumption has declined by 89.5 percent.One of the principal factors in the significant decline in coal consumption from 2016 to 2017 is the transition to biomass at the central power plants, as well as a considerable increase in wind power utilisation.More: Denmark’s coal consumption plummets in just one year Danish coal consumption continues fallinglast_img read more

Latest Update in Guyana’s Elections Gives Ruling Coalition Victory

first_img“There is no basis for an appeal. If such an attempt is made it will go nowhere because the language in the Constitution is clear and unambiguous. I can’t say they will not attempt but the chances of them being successful are extremely slim,” Robertson said on a radio programme here. GEORGETOWN, Guyana – In the latest twist in Guyana’s election saga, Chief Elections Officer, Keith Lowenfield, submitted his report to the chairperson of the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) showing that the ruling coalition, A Partnership for National Unity (APNU), had won the disputed March 2 regional and general elections. In his letter to the GECOM chairperson, retired Justice Claudette Singh, the Chief Elections Officer said that he had “taken note of the guidance of the Court of Appeal…in the preparation of my report under Section 96 of the Representation of the People’s Act”. Attorney General and Minister of Legal Affairs, Senior Counsel, Basil Williams, who was one of the respondents in the constitutional matter, has also said that the CCJ cannot hear the appeal because of the enshrined law here. “In other words, approximately 55 per cent of all votes cast for general elections stand to be impacted due to either anomalies and/or voter impersonation or unreconciled ballot boxes. Specifically, 7.2 per cent of the votes cast were impacted by anomalies, 39.2 per cent were impacted by voter impersonation, 3.4 per cent impacted by both anomalies/irregularities and voter impersonation, and 5.7 per cent impacted by unreconciled ballot boxes,” he wrote then. Williams said the CCJ, while accepting its position as a superior court of record, has continuously recognised that it only possesses such jurisdiction and powers as conferred on it by the Agreement or by the Guyana Constitution or any other law of the Contracting Party. In its statement, the PPP/C said that the coalition has been doing “everything possible to thwart the will of the electorate and to prevent GECOM from declaring the true results of those elections”. According to Lowenfield’s new tabulation, the coalition received 171, 825 votes as compared with 166, 343 votes cast on behalf of the main opposition People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C). The CCJ has confirmed it has received the appeal filed by the opposition, but no date has yet been set for the hearing. The final report to the Chair and members of the Commission differ from the total vote recount. However, the three-member Court of Appeal did not grant all the remedies that had been sought by the private citizen, Eslyn David, in her motion and also agreed to a stay of three days on the judgement. Justice Reynolds in his ruling said Article 177 (4) confers jurisdiction over the Court of Appeal in respect to the validity of an election of a president or upon the interpretation of the constitution. The Trinidad-based CCJ is the country’s highest court, but attorney Mayo Robertson, who was one of the lawyers representing the private citizen, Eslyn David, in her constitutional motion against the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM), said the chances of the opposition being successful at the CCJ are “ very slim”. Earlier, the PPP/C said that it has filed an appeal to the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ), appealing the Court of Appeal ruling. On Monday, the Court of Appeal ruled that it has jurisdiction to hear a motion regarding the election of a president, interpreting also that “more votes” cast in the election should in effect be “more valid votes” cast But in his minority ruling, Justice Rishi Persaud, ruled that the motion was “premature” and “wholly ill- conceived”: and that the applicant should have awaited to take the matter before the High Court, after GECOM would have announced the official election results. CMC “In fact, the Court of Appeal has wrongly ruled that these two challenges must be done separately and in different Courts. To bring clarity to the law and to guard against the Court of Appeal wrongly giving itself jurisdiction, again, to either direct the Chief Elections Officer to submit a fraudulent and perverted report, or to protect a fraudulent and perverted report submitted by the Chief Elections Officer to the Commission, we have decided to file an appeal to the Caribbean Court of Justice.” In its lengthy statement, the PPP/C, said that “moreover, the Court of Appeal in its pronouncement have plunged the law in total confusion and it is now no longer clear how an election of members of the National Assembly is to be challenged and how the election of the President can be challenged. He said that his report contains “a table showing the credible and valid votes cast in accordance with the Representation of the People’s Act”. In his first report to GECOM earlier this month, Lowenfield had claimed that the results did not meet the standard of fair and credible elections. Current President of Guyana, David Granger Based on his calculation, the coalition APNU will have 33 seats in the National Assembly, with the PPP/C gaining 31 seats and the parties on the Joined Lists gaining one seat. Justices Brassington Reynolds and Dawn Gregory ruled that GECOM had a responsibility to determine the final credible count based on quantitative and qualitative assessments of the observation report, in keeping with provisions of the original order and in the final paragraph of the amended order. David had mounted her challenge before the appellate court pursuant to Article 177 (4) of the Constitution, which states “the Court of Appeal shall have exclusive jurisdiction to hear and determine any question as to the validity of an election of a President in so far as the question depends upon the qualification of any person for election or the interpretation of this Constitution….” Following the June 9 national recount of the votes cast in the election, the PPP/C said it had won the polls by a margin in excess of 15,000 votes. In light of this, the Attorney General submitted that an Appeal cannot lie to the Caribbean Court of Justice in respect of matters determined under article 177(4) of the Constitution. The PPP/C said that it anticipates that “this appeal will be heard and determined speedily by the Caribbean Court of Justice to enable the true results of the election be declared and Dr. Irfaan Ali be sworn in as the next duly elected President of Guyana”.last_img read more

Davis looks ahead after surprising Olympic loss

(AP Photo/Patrick Semansky)SOCHI, Russia (AP) — Shani Davis went from sure thing to nothing in 2½ laps.The two-time defending Olympic champion in the 1,000 meters got shut out of a medal on Wednesday, finishing eighth in a race he has dominated in recent years.Now, the 31-year-old from Chicago has three days to clear his mind and make adjustments before he skates in the 1,500 on Saturday at Adler Arena.Davis was one of the U.S. speedskating team’s best hopes for a gold medal. The Americans have yet to make the podium through the first five days of competition.“It’s unfortunate for us,” he said. “Now we move forward and try to figure out what we can possibly do to fix it.”Davis has never won the 1,500 at the Olympics, earning silver medals in 2006 and 2010. But it’s his other strong event, one of his “babies” as he calls the two sprint races.Davis planned to study video of the loss to “see what these guys were doing that I wasn’t doing.”“I just got to try to piece it together and figure it out for myself so I can possibly fix it for the 1,500,” he said.In the 1,000, Davis had a slower opening than gold medalist Stefan Groothuis of the Netherlands, and then lost 0.35 in the first full lap. He slowed in the final lap and finished in 1 minute, 9.12 seconds. Racing against Davis, Dutchman Koen Verweij overtook the American at the finish line in the next-to-last pairing.“Watching it was agonizing,” said Canadian Gilmore Junio, who gave up his spot in the race to teammate Denny Morrison, who took the silver.Groothuis won in 1:08.39, more than seven-tenths of a second ahead of Davis. Michel Mulder of the Netherlands earned the bronze to go with his gold from the 500.“I think a lot of people were shocked with how fast the times were,” Brian Hansen said.He and the other Americans fared worse than Davis.Hansen of Glenview, Ill., finished ninth, Joey Mantia of Ocala, Fla., was 15th and Jonathan Garcia of Houston was 28th.“We have a lot of depth in this race,” said Hansen, who became nauseous after his race. “We didn’t show it out there, but we do.”Besides Davis, Hansen and Mantia, Jonathan Kuck of Champaign, Ill., will skate in the 1,500.“I can’t let it get me down because I have other races to skate,” Davis said, “but I’m pretty sad about it.”last_img read more
