Mark Taper Foundation has donated $30,000 to fund The Laurel Foundation’s 2015 support programs for children, youth and families affected by HIV and AIDS. This marks a renewed partnership with The Laurel Foundation, which celebrates its 23rd anniversary this year, as the S. Mark Taper Foundation was one of the first to partner with Camp Laurel Foundation (now dba The Laurel Foundation), in 1995.“Long-term supporting partners such as the S. Mark Taper Foundation allow us to maintain our programs to help families affected by AIDS over the long haul which is critical to their well-being and personal growth. They were one of the first Foundations to believe in our mission and help us to create the organization we have sustained today. Many of the children we serve still live in secrecy and cannot open up to their peers about the disease. The Laurel Foundation’s programs are the one place where they can just be a kid, take their medications without having to hide them and just be normal.” Said Margot Anderson, the Founder and CEO.About The Laurel FoundationThe Laurel Foundation’s mission is to empower children, youth and families living with HIV and AIDS by providing a diverse range of educational and support programs in an emotionally and physically safe and trusting environment. The Laurel Foundation, based in Pasadena, annually helps more than 500 low-income, at-risk, needy participants living primarily in Southern California.To accomplish its mission, The Laurel Foundation programs consist of resident camps, mentorships, day programs and support programs. Each program aims to eradicate the pain and isolation associated with HIV and AIDS by teaching participants the important life skills (e.g., independence, trust, problem solving) needed to overcome the adversity of HIV and AIDS. In addition, programs focus on building social support systems with peers, developing bonds with volunteers who serve as crucial role models, and educating participants on health life choices and the consequences of at-risk behaviors. All programs support social and emotional development, boost self-esteem, and help participants reach their full potential in life. For information on how to make a donation or volunteer please visit www.Laurel-Foundation.org.About the S. Mark Taper FoundationThe S.

HMS Royal Oak Decorated with New White Ensign

Authoritiescenter_img View post tag: New View post tag: HMS Royal Oak View post tag: Decorated View post tag: Naval Back to overview,Home naval-today HMS Royal Oak Decorated with New White Ensign View post tag: News by topic The flag exchange ceremony has been made in advance of commemoration events on Tuesday (October 14) to mark the 75th anniversary of the sinking of HMS Royal Oak.HMS Royal Oak sank in Scapa Flow on October 14, 1939 with the loss of 834 lives after being hit by torpedoes from German U-Boat U-47.Launched in 1914 and in service in 1916, the Revenge-Class battleship saw service in the First World War, including the Battle of Jutland. The torpedo strikes which claimed the ship and so many lives were delivered barely a month into World War 2.As well as replacing the White Ensign, which ‘flies’ at the stern of the ship, the divers will also undertake a routine annual survey of the wreck to ensure that the ship maintains minimal impact on the important and sensitive environment of Scapa Flow.It is thought that the 75th commemoration, organised by the HMS Royal Oak Survivors Association and the Royal British Legion Scotland, will be the last major memorial event to the sinking of HMS Royal Oak, though smaller services will continue in future.Royal Navy mine hunter HMS Bangor is also in Orkney this weekend and will open her upper deck to the public in Kirkwall Harbour from 10am to 4pm on both Saturday and Sunday. She will sail overnight from Kirkwall to Scapa on Monday October 13.[mappress]Press Release, October 10, 2014; Image: UK Navy View post tag: Whitelast_img read more

Consumer watch

first_imgI don’t often go into bakeries. I usually just shop in Sainsbury’s for cost and convenience.I don’t even shop at the Sainsbury’s in-store bakery, as I would think that these products would be more expensive.I’m quite predictable with the bread that I buy and usually just get Best of Both or bread with seeds. This makes good sandwiches, which I take to work about three times a week. My favourite is brown bread with cold baked beans – strange I know.The only time I buy ready-made sandwiches is when I’m in town, shopping for clothes. I like to buy them from Boots, Marks & Spencer or, if I’m with friends, it’s a treat to sit down and enjoy a sandwich in a coffee shop.I eat healthily, but occasionally I buy packaged brownies and jam-filled doughnuts. Because of the calorie content, I hardly ever buy pies, pasties and cakes, although, on a recent weekend away with the girls, I had fish pie, spinach and cheese pie and a big slab of chocolate cake. I’ll have to get myself to the gym after all that!When I go on holiday to Cornwall, I will eat Cornish pasties, as it’s a tradition which started in my childhood.I like to eat healthy foods most of the time and that’s why I don’t go into bakeries that often, as I don’t associate them with health. I think of them as selling cream cakes, sausage rolls, pies – all sorts of naughty and indulgent things like that.Laura Clark,Wimbledonlast_img read more

West End Star Kenny Doughty on Getting Felt Up at the Stage Door in The Full Monty

first_imgAfter four years in Los Angeles, Yorkshire-born TV and film actor Kenny Doughty is returning to his roots in The Full Monty in the West End. Not to be confused with the Americanized Broadway musical of the same title (which was a New York hit and a London flop), the new stage play by Simon Beaufoy sticks to the source material of his own Oscar-nominated script for the 1997 film. The play, about a group of unemployed British steelworkers who turn to stripping, is set to open February 25 at the Noel Coward Theatre. While preparing for the production’s first preview, the charming Doughty spoke to Broadway.com about film vs. TV, Britain vs. America, and appearing naked in front of his mother-in-law. And now she’s coming again in London? Yes, this time with my own mother: The two mums together! What would Freud do with this bit of information? Has your on stage disrobing made for some, um, interesting experiences with the audience during your pre-West End tour? [Laughs] At our first preview almost a year ago in Sheffield, we had no idea how the audience might react, and I think we were slightly like lambs to the wolves. The audience was so raucous that it was genuinely terrifying when we got out there. When we were in Dublin, they were stomping “get them off” at one point, but we just had to hold our ground! The play takes place in 1988—did you worry that its themes might have become dated in the decades since? Just the opposite: with the recent austerity measures and recessions and the insidiousness of people losing their jobs, the timing seems unbelievably apt. What’s also become even more pronounced is the idea that no one has a job for life anymore, so any number of people are facing the sorts of identity crises faced by the guys in our play. What about afterwards at the stage door? The weird thing there is that [audiences] may feel a little bit overfamiliar and try to have a little feel up your ass, but you just have to say, “I know you’ve seen me get my kit off, but I think we’ve been through that.” It was amazing when we were in [the cathedral town] Canterbury last year—there we were in this quaint, beautiful city with this group of women at the stage door asking me to sign their cleavage. Did you know about the Broadway musical? I didn’t, to be honest, but I was speaking about [the play] to some friends in L.A. and they said, “What? The Full Monty musical?” and I said, “Not at all!” That was set in Buffalo and I think for Simon this is about reclaiming the piece and making it his again. I think he always felt like it had to be set in Sheffield. The Full Monty has brought you back home to Britain. How does that feel? I’m back in the motherland and I’m finding that I really missed it! I’d gone out to L.A. to look after a friend’s flat and got my green card and stayed. Now my wife and I have a nice place in Santa Monica, which we love. But at the same time, it’s great to be playing the West End. I always imagined that my career would be in theater, so it’s nice to be doing some! You play Gaz, who dreams up the scheme that stripping might be the way to self-worth. Yes, but what’s fascinating is that this almost feels like it was a play first. And although the plot is the same as the film, the characters do go on a slightly different journey. Simon [Beaufoy] has had the opportunity to extend and explore certain moments a bit more in-depth. Because The Full Monty was his first film and now this is his first play, Simon has been able to go back to the film with all the knowledge he has gained in the intervening 17 years as a writer. Your real-life wife, Caroline Carver, plays your ex-wife in this: Did the two of you come as a package deal? No, and in fact our producer at first wasn’t sure about having a real-life married couple. He didn’t know if that would work. But Caroline is a phenomenally successful actress so we both said, “You make the decision based on Caroline and her alone.” And she got the job! Of course it’s lovely for me, because we bring to it our own natural history. You’ve appeared on screen in Crush and Titus, but you are coming belatedly to theater. Does that surprise you? It does, you know, since I always imagined when I left drama school [London’s Guildhall] that I would only do theater and instead I ended up doing TV and film and am only now appearing on a mainstage in London. I had actually been thinking recently that I might have missed my opportunity to be in the West End, so I’m delighted to see that isn’t true. View Comments Much less in a show where you’ll be baring in all in front of your mother-in-law. Tell me about it! She’s from Manchester, so she brought a coachload of girls to come from work and that was strange: there’s my wife’s mum whooping and cheering me getting naked. Yes, especially a project which must feel close to your heart. It does. I’m from Barnsley, which is six miles from Sheffield, where both the film and this play are set. Long before I even knew I would be doing this play I had seen the film loads; there aren’t many films about South Yorkshire, so it’s almost part of my DNA.last_img read more
