Wicked’s Sheryl Lee Ralph Weighs In on Jennifer Holliday & More

first_img Related Shows Sheryl Lee Ralph Wicked Wicked diva Sheryl Lee Ralph visited (fellow Broadway alum) Wendy Williams’ show on January 24, and our reaction is the exact same as Williams’ as they hug: “I can’t with you.” The original Dreamgirl—after serving all kinds of glam—sat down to discuss anything you can imagine, including her health regimen (lots of water, God, her mother), her thoughts on Jennifer Holliday’s inauguration controversy (which incidentally involves her belting “And I Am Telling You”), the balancing act between being a performer and a senator’s wife (i.e. the balance between cleavage and no cleavage) and finding her look as Broadway’s latest Madame Morrible.

Giant winner

first_imgPlant the 2010 Georgia Gold Medal deciduous tree winner – the Ogon Dawn Redwood – for a dazzling focal point in large public spaces. Its brilliant, golden-yellow foliage glows in the sunlight, grabs the attention of passing motorists and pedestrians and draws them into the landscape.Ogon Dawn Redwood is a large, deciduous conifer reaching 70 to 100 feet tall and 25 feet wide at maturity, so it may not be the best tree for residential landscapes. However, it makes a spectacular showing when planted in groups of two or three along ponds or lakes where its golden foliage can be reflected by the water. It also is a great plant for framing golf course fairways or creating a focal point in large scenic vistas within public parks.At first glance, Ogon Dawn Redwood looks a lot like our native bald cypress. However, the redwood has larger needle-like leaflets that are arranged in a flat plane along the stem. Those of the bald cypress spiral around the stem.The leaflets emerge golden yellow in spring and hold their color well throughout the summer, eventually fading to orange-brown in the fall.Like other dawn redwoods, Ogon Dawn Redwood contains male and female flowers on the same tree. Male flowers are borne on long panicles up to 12 inches long, while female flowers are solitary, becoming pendulous cones 1 to 2 inches long by the end of the growing season.The bark is reddish brown on young trees. It becomes chocolate-brown with age and exfoliates into narrow strips that peel back from the trunk and appear to be flaking off.Ogon Dawn Redwood is a moderately fast grower when provided with moist, well-drained soils. It reaches 50 feet in 25 years. It has a natural pyramidal form, so little to no pruning is required.Ogon Dawn Redwood hails from the Eastern Szechuan Province in southwestern China, but it is perfectly adapted to our North American climate and soils. It prefers full sun and grows well in hardiness zones 5 to 8.last_img read more

Walk the Plank: Death at the Tough Mudder

first_imgAt some point during the half-mile, slightly uphill trek toward transportation — complicated by seized-up hip flexors and frozen fingers that couldn’t get the Clif Bars into my mouth quickly enough — I started thinking about what would come after the Tough Mudder we’d just completed.Sure, there would be Chik-Fil-A and hot showers en masse. But, after that, I’d have to write about it. And that meant I’d probably have to break one of the Tough Mudder rules: No whining.The emcee had listed off this rule when he rallied the troops before the start of the mud race that bills itself as “probably the toughest event on the planet.”I resisted the urge to whine for most of the race. But between the mid-40s weather at our 8:30 a.m. start and the onslaught of water obstacles (one, a dumpster filled with ice), the next five hours were the coldest of my life.The Tough Mudder — when taken at its nearly 12-mile, 22-obstacle whole — was quite tough. No one event was impossible, though some were more taxing than others (did I mention the Arctic Enema?). But add in nonstop shivers (yes, a symptom of hypothermia) and a little electric shock therapy, and it’s no wonder several teams spent half their time working out cramps on the sidelines.But all these details — and especially my whining — seemed trite in light of what I learned a few days after our race.We hadn’t yet jumped into water, per se, but were certainly soggy by the time we arrived at our fourth obstacle.“Walk the Plank,” the sign said. Great. This was the obstacle that really tapped into my fears, jumping almost 15 feet into a deep pool of muddy water. It didn’t help that a logjam of people waiting to take the leap gave me even more time to think about it. “Just climb up the wall, don’t look, and jump,” I told myself.I was repeating these mental motions when a military-uniformed volunteer interrupted.He was directing traffic toward the obstacle and talking to people as they passed. I thought his words would be motivating, maybe another of those “Oo-rahs!” that the Tough Mudder used as its battle cry.But they were words of caution: Keep moving when you get in the water, he told us. Someone before us hadn’t come up right away and they think people may have jumped on top of him.Great. My turn. I crept toward the plank slowly, not wanting time to contemplate this new information. My husband had just taken the leap, so I waited at the top to see his head pop up.I was staring at the spot where he’d entered the water, expecting him to come up for a breath. Five seconds felt like a full minute before I spotted him — already at the other end, climbing out of the muddy pool.“Did you really have to swim underwater?” I thought to myself. I sighed, relieved, and then stepped off the platform (with a more girlish yelp than I’d like to admit).This particular obstacle hadn’t been the focal point of my race—until I heard the news.Someone died from it.Jumping into iceLater that afternoon, Avishek Sengupta, a 28-year-old from Ellicott City, Md., had to be pulled from the muddy water after he had been submerged for several minutes, according to initial reports.Emergency officials — Tough Mudder posts some 75 of them around the course — were able to resuscitate him, but Sengupta died at the hospital from brain injuries the next day, news reports said.The Virginia medical examiner’s office ruled the death an accident. Tough Mudder officials said they could not provide additional details due to an ongoing investigation.Sengupta’s was the first death resulting from a Tough Mudder event. In the company’s three-year history, 750,000 people have participated in more than 50 Tough Mudders across the world. Our mid-April race, along with another on Sunday, drew 14,000 people to a military training center in West Virginia’s panhandle.Spokeswoman Ashley Pinakiewicz said the company’s East Coast events have been some of its biggest. Considering the high number of participants and the thorough nature of the waivers we signed — “this agreement applies to personal injury (including death)” — I was honestly surprised that this death was the event’s first.City Hospital in Martinsburg, W. Va., treated 20 patients with injuries from the Tough Mudder races the weekend we participated, according to a statement issued by the hospital. They treated participants for heart attacks and two, including Sengupta, for near-drowning injuries. More than a dozen others suffered from orthopedic, head and hypothermia injuries, the hospital said.Our team of five signed up for the Tough Mudder to “bond.” We’re headed on an overseas mission trip this summer and thought the semi-torturous event would, if nothing else, teach us to rely on each other.It did. For all the hype and hollerin’ at the start of the Tough Mudder, I found they weren’t exaggerating about its brotherly nature.I was impressed when, at the first obstacle, I watched a paraplegic man leave his hand-cycle wheelchair, intended for off-road uses, to Army crawl under barbed wire, not seeming to notice the scrape it left on his Mohawk-ed skull. But I was even more impressed when I saw his teammates flank the chair to push him up the steep hills.But he wasn’t the only one who had help.I bonded not only with my group, but also with perfect strangers (especially the one who reached up and shoved my butt over a mound of mud with no footholds — thanks).In fact, perhaps the hardest part of doing this race as a girl is that most of the guys barely let you. My own husband was an offender in this category, wrapping his arms around me like a cocoon at the top of the half-pipe obstacle called Everest. Granted, by this 20th obstacle, all my I-teach-fitness-classes pride had faded and I probably would have let any one of the chivalry-high men carry me on his back to the finish line.But I didn’t. I finished. I wrapped my frozen fingers around my hard-earned beer, wishing it were warm.We drove home, posted pictures on Facebook and analyzed the appearance of new bruises for days. One teammate had already suggested signing up for another.But when we found out that someone didn’t finish — that someone didn’t survive — it all felt trivial.Was it worth the risk? Will another 14,000 people sign up to do the same event at the same place in October?In many ways, the Tough Mudder events are about competing on behalf of those who can’t. Participants have raised more than $5 million for the Wounded Warrior Program, a nonprofit benefitting injured service members. The Boston Marathon bombings just days before our Tough Mudder event seemed only to galvanize the teams, who donned shirts in remembrance of those who lost limbs and lives. They chanted their “Oo-rahs!” loudly, exercising their right to race, their right to risk.One week after Sengupta’s death, participants at an event in Ohio donned black armbands and headbands in Sengupta’s memory. They said on Facebook pages that they were running for him.While Sengupta’s death may become for some a reason not to sign up, it would quickly become, for others, a cause worth running for. •last_img read more

Interview with Mario Andresol, Director General, Haitian National Police

first_imgBy Dialogo February 02, 2012 Since the January 2010 earthquake devastated the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince, the main focus in the country has been humanitarian aid. But, little by little, former gangs are reuniting and drug trafficking is increasing. To talk about the main concerns regarding security issues in Haiti, Diálogo spoke with Mario Andresol, Director General, Haitian National Police, during the 2012 Caribbean Nations Security Conference (CANSEC). The event was sponsored jointly by the United States Southern Command and St. Kitts and Nevis in December 2011. Diálogo: What are the main security or defense issues concerning Haiti now? Director General Mario Andresol: Our emphasis is still on humanitarian disaster relief. But at the same time, we have kidnappings ruining this country and also criminality due to the poverty situation, and this has created a level of fear among the people, which is very difficult to deal with because of the political situation, instability, social turmoil…this is our main concern right now. Diálogo: How important is it to work with other countries around Haiti, and especially the United States? Dir. Gen. Andresol: Information sharing and experiences from the international community and from the U.S. Military, U.S. Coast Guard and other entities is very helpful to us because we are a very young force of police and lack experience in this domain. In particular this situation made us rely on our partners in the Caribbean, in the U.S., especially. At this level, the U.S. helped build, helped develop, the Police Force that we are trying to professionalize right now. Diálogo: So you are trying to strengthen the Police? Dir. Gen. Andresol: Yes, we are now [a force of] 10,000 people and we hope to reach 15,000 by 2015. Diálogo: What is the Brigade for Struggle against Drug Trafficking? Dir. Gen. Andresol: This is a brigade that we just began to enforce because the drug traffic issue is very important for Haiti. You might know this, our country is a transit country generally used by the traffickers, and right now we are on the verge of reinforcing the unit. We will soon have more than 200 people. We only had 52 people in its inception, and right now we have 152. Soon we expect to add 50 more. Diálogo: Is that similar to a SWAT team? Dir. Gen. Andresol: It is like a SWAT team, yes, and most of them receive training in the U.S. We are also working with the DEA all the time. We will spread this unit all around Haiti so that we can block the routes the traffickers use to deal their drugs. We can identify some spots where we plan to establish periodic checkpoints 24-hours a day, seven days a week to block the traffickers’ routes. But right now this force is only centralized in Port-au-Prince, and I want to reinforce it by adding people in order to have many units all over Haiti.last_img read more

Alleged Drug Trafficker Arrested in Guatemala

first_img “Investigations will continue, so that the drug ring’s international links and method of operation can be determined,” Martínez concluded, specifying that the detainee has been accused of illicit drug trafficking, conspiracy and illicit partnership. On March 17, the Salvadoran Police and Prosecutor’s Office introduced Salvadoran national Jorge Ernesto Ulloa Sibrían, who was arrested in Guatemala on March 15, under accusations of being an alleged drug lord responsible for smuggling cocaine into the United States. The Salvadoran national was apprehended in Guatemala for remaining illegally in the country. Ulloa Sibrían did not have his immigration papers in order, and he had apparently been residing in a Guatemalan department for years. “He is accused of smuggling between 11 and 16 tons of cocaine into the United States since 2000, worth $275 million,” Salvadoran Attorney General Luis Martinez told the press. The Salvadoran Prosecutor’s Office also introduced another 13 people that were allegedly a part of Ulloa’s drug trafficking network. center_img By Dialogo March 19, 2013 Martínez explained that several properties in different parts of the country and about 15 automobiles were confiscated from the alleged drug trafficker. Ulloa Sibrían, aka “El Repollo” (the cabbage), was detained on the night of March 15 in a residential area located in the municipality of San José Pinula, east of Guatemala City, and then transported by helicopter to El Salvador on March 16. last_img read more
