Emma Stone Has Wanted to Play Sally in Cabaret Since…Age Nine (?!)

first_img View Comments Emma Stone stopped by The Tonight Show on October 14, just after her first official rehearsal for Cabaret. As it turns out, Stone has been longing to be Lady Peaceful/Lady Happy for quite some time; she first saw the show in New York at the age of nine, with her new co-star Alan Cumming as the Emcee. “You know, it’s a strange part for a nine-year-old to want to play,” she says. The screen star also discussed her latest film, Birdman, including the terrifyingly long continuous shots involved. But ultimately, Stone doesn’t forget her stage roots, including the instant elementary school classic, No Turkey for Perky. “There was a part for a first grader, and I think my first grade teacher put me in the play because, well, you know.” While we wait for a No Turkey for Perky revival, you can catch Stone in Cabaret beginning November 11.

Hughes nets Stoke job

first_imgStoke have confirmed Mark Hughes as their new manager and will formally unveil him on Thursday. Once Tony Pulis’ seven-year stay with the club ended last week, Hughes quickly emerged as the clear favourite to be his successor and after days of talks has now been given the job. The 49-year-old has been out of work since being sacked by QPR last November, with his appointment announced in a brief statement. The former Manchester United striker will hold a media conference at 11am. In choosing Hughes, Stoke have again gone for a Welsh manager, with Hughes having also coached the national side – his first post at the end of a successful playing career. As an uncompromising striker Hughes played for the likes of United, Barcelona and Bayern Munich, scoring over 200 goals. In the dugout, having guided Wales to a World Cup qualifying play-off, he headed back to former club Blackburn where he impressed by earning a European spot. Manchester City came calling in June 2008 as a result but he was unable to deliver tangible success despite a heavy period of investment and was sacked in December 2009. Fulham offered him a route back into football in the summer of 2010 and he guided them to eighth in his first season before resigning, citing a desire to better himself. His next job was at QPR, though, and he took over a side looking to stay in the Premier League at the first attempt. He managed to achieve that after replacing Neil Warnock in January 2012, but was sacked 11 months later after failing to move the side away from the bottom of the table despite healthy backing in the transfer market. Stoke will be hoping Hughes can carry on the work done by fellow countryman Pulis, who left the Britannia Stadium last week with the best wishes of the club after a successful spell. He guided them into the Premier League and stabilised them as a top-flight side for four successive seasons. But despite an FA Cup Final appearance some fans had grown tired of what they considered a dated style of football and a parting of ways occurred once the season had ended. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Ponfeigh in Meld frame

first_imgPonfeigh, who finished fourth in the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby, could have his sights lowered in Sunday’s Meld Stakes at the Curragh. John Oxx has left the lightly-raced colt in the 10-furlong Group Three at the five-day stage after he collected some decent prize money behind Australia in last month’s Classic. Oxx also has Qewy among the 12 possibles, while Aidan O’Brien can choose from Newmarket winner Table Rock, Festive Cheer and Palace. Festive Cheer was one of two supplementary entries along with Paul Deegan’s Prince Of All. Dermot Weld is double-handed with Afternoon Sunlight and Edelmira, with Parish Hall, Manalapan, Alive Alive Oh and Magnolia Beach completing the dozen. Alive Alive Oh, Afternoon Sunlight and Palace have also been left in the Group Two Kilboy Estate Stakes on the same card. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

FB : Sophomore running back Gulley out for season

first_img Published on October 3, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Michael: [email protected] | @Michael_Cohen13 Facebook Twitter Google+ Commentscenter_img One week after Doug Marrone closed practice in response to the health issues surrounding his team, he announced that running back Prince-Tyson Gulley was out for the season.Gulley, a sophomore who served as the backup for Antwon Bailey, will miss the remainder of 2011 after undergoing an operation for a broken collarbone — an injury that was sustained off the field.‘Prince-Tyson Gulley is out for the year,’ Marrone said Monday during his press conference. ‘Everyone else to my knowledge should be fine unless something happens during the week.’Therein lies the silver lining for Marrone and his staff. The Orange came out of the game against Rutgers with far fewer injuries than it did following the previous week’s win over Toledo.But Gulley is still a big loss for SU.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textGulley had the best game of his career against the Rockets, rushing for 66 yards on 10 carries in his role spelling Bailey. His shiftiness and quick burst of speed through the offensive line provided the Orange with a change of pace yet to be seen out of the offense so far this season.Sophomore Jerome Smith moves up to the No. 2 spot on the SU depth chart, with freshman Adonis Ameen-Moore and sophomore Steven Rene behind him.Marrone said all three of those players will receive reps in practice following the loss of Gulley.‘We’re going to play those players because if, God forbid, something happens to Antwon (Bailey), now everything is increased,’ Marrone said. ‘… We have to get those players involved in the system, and you’ll see all of those players involved in the game plan.’But Marrone also shared some positive news with the media Monday, announcing that safeties Shamarko Thomas and Olando Fisher were scheduled to participate in practice later that day. Both have missed at least two games due to injuries.He said they would be involved in a limited role to ‘see where they are at this point.’‘If they do well today, then the question comes on how we’ll work them in,’ he said. ‘I don’t know if we’ll throw them in there full time because I haven’t seen them run on the field. But they’ll be out there in a limited role in individual drills today. If things go well, then tomorrow we’ll increase that role and have a better feel for what packages they’re playing and if they’re starting at all.’That leaves Chandler Jones as the only uncertainty for the Orange. Marrone said the senior defensive end was going to be evaluated by the doctor on Tuesday, after which a decision would be made.‘I think that he’s much closer now than he’s ever been,’ Marrone said. ‘I look forward to that.’[email protected]last_img read more

Pew Survey Finds Broad Global Support for Climate Action

first_imgWith a pivotal climate summit in Paris just weeks away, a new far-reaching survey by the Pew Research Center shows widespread support for a global agreement to tackle this challenge.Covering 40 countries and views from more than 45,000 people, this is Pew’s biggest study on international attitudes on climate change. Majorities in all 40 nations surveyed called this a serious problem, and a global median of 54 percent considered it to be very serious. More than three-quarters—78 percent—said their country should limit greenhouse gas emissions as part of an international agreement set to be forged in Paris.Based on interviews in March and April, 51 percent of respondents said people are being harmed now by a changing climate.“Clearly, people don’t see this as a distant threat,” Richard Wike, Pew’s director of Global Attitudes Research, told WRI staff and guests at a briefing on Tuesday.The level of concern varied by country and region, with Latin America and Africa most worried about climate change, followed by Europe, the Asia-Pacific region and the Middle East. China and the United States—the top two national emitters of climate-warming greenhouse gases—were among the least concerned. With global temperatures on track to set another record this year, the need for action is urgent and growing, sending a powerful message to international leaders that an overwhelming number of people want to see countries come together around an agreement this year. Majorities in nearly all the countries surveyed—Pakistan is the exception—agree that the problem should be tackled by limiting emissions. Beyond national and international policy change, though, most respondents also said significant lifestyle changes will be needed to confront the problem. And a majority of respondents said that rich countries like the United States, Japan and German should do more because of their historic greenhouse gas emissions.center_img Among the various concerns related to climate, drought tops the list, according to the survey, followed by severe weather, extreme heat and rising seas. Wike explained that droughts came in first with people in regions like the western United States, where they are seeing firsthand the consequences of severe, long-term dry condition. Interestingly, nearly one in five U.S. respondents also said rising sea levels are a major concern, a message reinforced in a speech this week by Secretary of State John Kerry.U.S. respondents were divided along party lines, the survey found, with Democrats much more likely than Republicans to see climate change as a problem. Nevertheless, 50 percent of Republicans support reducing greenhouse gas emissions.“We have seen a rise in concern a little bit over the last five years in the United States,” Wike said.While the partisan split is more dramatic in the United States, it also exists in Australia, Canada, Germany and the United Kingdom.last_img read more
