Directed by Gregory Mosher, Love Letters is a funny and emotional portrait about the powerful connection of love.  Two friends, rebellious Melissa Gardner and straight-arrow Andrew Makepeace Ladd III have exchanged notes, cards and letters with each other for over 50 years. From second grade, through summer vacations, to college, and well into adulthood, they have spent a lifetime discussing their hopes and ambitions, dreams and disappointments, and victories and defeats. But long after the letters are done, the real question remains: Have they made the right choices or is the love of their life only a letter away? Love Letters originally opened off-Broadway in March 1989, starring Kathleen Turner and John Rubinstein. The play changed its cast every week and other notable names that appeared in that incarnation included Victor Garber, Julie Harris, Christopher Reeve and Christopher Walken. The show transferred to Broadway in October of that year, with Lynn Redgrave, John Clark, Stockard Channing and more appearing in the production.

Sail Cartagena de Indias 2018 Brings Harmony Among Partner Nations

first_imgBy Julieta Pelcastre/Diálogo August 31, 2018 The Colombian Navy gathered naval institutions from nine partner nations of the Americas and Europe in Colombia’s Caribbean waters. The Sail Cartagena 2018 maritime event strengthened bonds of cooperation and friendship among different naval forces, July 21st-26th. The nautical event, held in Cartagena, Colombia, every four years since 2006, was well attended. “We had a naval week with seven training ships, two naval vessels from partner nations, and more than 2,000 sailors present,” said Colombian Navy Rear Admiral Francisco Cubides Granados, commandant of Colombia’s Admiral Padilla Naval Academy and executive secretary of Sail Cartagena 2018. “It was the perfect scenario to promote hemispheric wellbeing in the maritime field.” Sail Cartagena seeks to promote greater and better regional and hemispheric integration between the world’s navies and make Cartagena de Indias a travel and nautical destination in the Caribbean and the Americas. Argentina’s ARA Libertad, Brazil’s NVe Cisne Branco, Chile’s Esmeralda, Honduras’s FNH Lempira, Mexico’s ARM Cuauhtémoc, Peru’s BAP Unión, Portugal’s NRP Sagres, and the USCGC Hamilton, as well as the host, Colombia’s ARC Gloria, anchored at the docks of la Bodeguita, Edurbe, and Sociedad Portuaria. Crew members shared experiences and enjoyed the attractions of the historic walled city, a world heritage site. At the event, 75,000 international and local tourists discovered the culture of each country through their vessels. “Each boat is a floating embassy full of history, culture, and traditions, with a goodwill message from the friendly side of the navy,” Colombian Navy Rear Admiral Juan Ricardo Rozo, commandant of the Noncommissioned Officers Naval Academy, told Diálogo. “It’s not just about maritime military operations to counter criminal groups’ activities, but also to bring a goodwill message.” Tokens of friendship The inauguration ceremony included a welcome nautical parade with hundreds of sailboats and yachts gathered by the channel to access the docks. “The town’s whole nautical community showed up to welcome [the training ships],” Rear Adm. Cubides told Diálogo. “It was the perfect moment to show Cartagena’s nautical history to visitors.” The Peruvian ship BAP Unión was received with a 21-gun salute to honor its first entry into Colombia. The event included a military parade on the bay, the exhibition of naval vessels, and the participation of more than 250 sailors of partner nations. “Each crew displayed their flags, emblems, and banners with pride,” Rear Adm. Cubides said. Among the naval activities, crews carried out a knot-tying contest. The Peruvian crew, demonstrating skills and precision, won first place, followed by Colombia’s ARC Gloria and Portugual’s NPR Sagres. More than 5,000 attendees took part in culinary fairs, cultural celebrations, and a farewell concert. The event also commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Colombian Navy training ship ARC Gloria. According to the Colombian Navy, the ship has flown its flag in 77 countries and trained more than 4,000 students in seafaring practices. The best collaboration “Although some adjustments need to be made, the peace process has brought wellbeing for the whole Colombian population,” Rear Adm. Cubides said. “The country’s economy is growing; people already feel the peace in their everyday lives.” Sail Cartagena has grown from previous versions. For Rear Adm. Rozo, the meeting of commanders and the nautical events “are an example of how these activities strengthen capabilities [and] relations among the different navies, because we all join efforts and capabilities.” “It was special to see children happy, asking questions as they toured vessels. These children might have the opportunity to be members of an institution like the Colombian Navy in the future. All these activities strengthen bonds of cooperation and brings us closer to the population,” Rear Adm. Rozo concluded.last_img read more

The majority come from Afghanistan, and some are from Pakistan, Iraq, and Somalia. Feroza, 21, fled with her in-laws from Pakistan nearly three years ago. She shares a cramped room with eight other people, which consists of two tents, a pillow, and a blanket draped over the floor.“Every night we spend in tears, in the darkness, without water, without any facilities,” she said. “We can’t say whether tomorrow we’ll be alive or not. People become fed up with hunger. They die with hunger here.” None of the refugees in the camp know how long they will have to remain in Indonesi… Google Topics : LOG INDon’t have an account?

Stress tests should not be based on ‘something hypothetical’

first_imgThe IORP stress tests the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority (EIOPA) wants to launch later this month should not be based on “something hypothetical”, according to Matti Leppälä, chief executive at PensionsEurope. Leppälä took particular issue with the controversial ‘holistic balance sheet’ accounting approach. “Why does EIOPA need to stress the HBS, which does not exist yet and has not been approved by anybody?” he asked.Further, he pointed out “we have not received a proper answer to this question” yet. Leppälä told IPE he was “unsure whether EIOPA was really pushing the HBS” or using the stress tests to see whether “it makes sense”.But he also stressed that his organisation did not support the HBS approach, as it was “conceptually wrong” and “unsuitable as a regulatory instrument”.“Simpler alternatives”, such as ALM studies and continuity analyses, should instead be used, as the have the “same goals but are cheaper and have less model uncertainty because they are in use”.Leppälä also criticised the stress test itself, which has “a lot of shortcomings because it has a short-term focus”.“This stress test will give just a snap-shot picture,” he said.“It does not enable the long-term evaluation of the sustainability of the IORP.”He added: “For a long-term evaluation, you would need a dynamic stress test that includes the recovery periods – otherwise, you cannot draw any conclusions on whether the system is stable.”He questioned whether the stress test – which includes DC plans for the first time – could provide any significant information on the impact on members and beneficiaries.Leppälä also noted that EIOPA’s aim to cover at least 50% of the national markets was most likely to be achieved by getting the biggest pension funds to participate.“Of course, if and when that happens, results will be biased and unrepresentative of the sector as a whole,” he said.last_img read more
