Dir. Tom Meltzer. OFS 7.30pm Tues-Sat; 2.30pm Sat; 7th Week I’ve spent a lot of time laughing lately, and my face hurts. Further, the realisation that I’m going to have to write 15 words for every minute I saw of the Oxford Revue’s preview show was hardly likely to bring a smile to my face. Given these circumstances the Revue should be commended for having produced any flicker of amusement in my dead eyes. The fact that they actually made me laugh should earn them some sort of award. ‘Write what you know’ might be the dictum of serious novelists, but if anything it’s more applicable to comedy. Anyone who signed up for something unfamiliar at Freshers’ Fair can relate to Jack Bernhardt’s discomfort as he is shown by Sensei Joe Markham how to ‘absorb the impact’ in a martial arts lesson which includes defence-against-assailants-armed-with-a-paddle. Far and away the best sketches are ones which play off situations we’re all uncomfortably familiar with. Matt Lacey got the loudest applause of the afternoon for a monologue, delivered into a mobile and punctuated with “yah” and “nah”, detailing his adventures on his gap year (“ye-ahr”?). Ethno-rahs might be an easy target, but Lacey does his bit with relish and unerring accuracy, including sudden lapses into articulacy and humanity.The show fails when it aims for targets which aren’t so familiar: when unable to draw out details from personal experience, they’re left exploiting old stereotypes of pushy parents, schizoid psychiatrists and pathetic first-time authors. That said, when they broaden their range of fire beyond Oxford to take out George Galloway, they succeed roundly. What’s special about this sketch is its original approach – he’s an easy target, but they’ve chosen to excoriate him for one of his less-noted faults. The Revue turns its sharp gaze on reality, and shows it to be completely ridiculous: the apotheosis of comedy because it’s utterly uncontrived and completely true.Laughter is contagious, and an abbreviated preview of a sketch show is more like a vaccination. It’s hard to tell you what the Revue do, without telling you what they did: it’s really tempting to just fill this review by documenting their jokes. But this would be a disservice to you and them both, because I don’t think I can describe how well Joe Markham shrinks his frame and intellect to become Harry Potter, or how Michael Doherty’s song about sexual perversion will make you want to sing along inappropriately.The Revue has problem in wrapping up sketches – in TV you can cut to something else immediately, but on stage you literally have to leave them laughing, at least for long enough to allow time for minions to scuttle on and move chairs. That said, the cast’s greatest asset is their confidence: even when jokes fall flat, they seem utterly self-possessed and so we aren’t left squirming with embarrassment or, worse, feeling obliged to laugh. However, for reasons unknown, they have adopted costumes and sets of deep purple and mustard yellow: not so good if your eyes hurt. So if you have, for instance, visual migraines or a wicked hangover you probably won’t enjoy the show. Everyone else will though, and you’ll be gutted you missed it.by Emma Butterfield
Renovations to the Deauville Inn include adding new siding on the building to give it a fresh look. (Photo courtesy of Deauville Inn) By DONALD WITTKOWSKIWhen Tim Fox bought the Deauville Inn last year, he was determined to blend the historic building’s old-fashioned charms with modern upgrades to create a more upscale experience for customers.Over the winter and spring, there has been a whirlwind of construction activity for a transformation that will recapture the atmosphere from the Deauville’s heyday in the Roaring Twenties and Prohibition era.Fox is eager to unveil the Deauville’s new look as soon as the coronavirus restrictions are lifted and businesses begin welcoming customers back to the Jersey Shore after a prolonged shutdown to slow the spread of the lethal contagion.“The first thing they’re going to do, after their jaws drop, is say, ‘Wow.’ My feeling is they will be flabbergasted,” Fox said of how customers will react to the makeover.Perched on the bay at the foot of the Corson’s Inlet Bridge in Strathmere, the Deauville came under Fox’s ownership last October after he purchased it for an undisclosed price from the Carpenter family, which had held it for 40 years.“The charm of that building is amazing,” Fox said. “I fell in love with the charm.”Deauville Inn’s new owner Tim Fox and his partner Robyn Kjar stand inside the dining room before renovations were completed.For now, the Deauville is offering takeout service while the statewide ban on in-person dining continues at New Jersey restaurants during the coronavirus outbreak.“As soon as we get the thumbs-up, we’re ready to go,” Jason Tell, Deauville’s director of special events and marketing, said of reopening the restaurant after the coronavirus restrictions are over.Fox explained that he will have extensive safeguards in place to protect customers and employees from COVID-19. Plans include having personal protective equipment at every door and countertop. Employees will wear gloves and will also thoroughly sanitize the restaurant and bar areas.“We’re going to handle it safely and properly,” Fox said.Fox, a Strathmere resident, is the founder of the Cherry Hill-based Fox Rehabilitation, a healthcare company that specializes in physical and occupational therapy for older adults. He has a doctorate in physical therapy and is board certified in geriatrics.After he bought the Deauville, he immediately set out to freshen up the landmark building’s interior and exterior. However, he said he always kept the inn’s historic appeal in mind.Fox has likened the Deauville to a treasured piece of artwork that was in need of a touch-up.The makeover is touching up both the inside and exterior of the landmark building in Strathmere.The building dates to the 1880s and originally operated as the Whelen Hotel before becoming the Deauville Inn, according to the historic website Strathmere.net.The Deauville was popular during the 1920s and ’30s, operating as a speakeasy and illicit casino during Prohibition. It was able to attract famous entertainers of the day, such as Eddie Cantor, Sophie Tucker and Jimmy Durante, the website says.Renovations under Fox include changing the color of the roof with green shingles to return the building to its vintage look. Next year, there are plans to top off the roof with a replica of the Deauville’s former iconic sign.Updates to the building’s interior include a remodeled dining room and bar. The bar has been renamed “The Pub” and includes new walls with mahogany touches, new TVs and a new sound system.“It’s more homey and has got a lot of charm and personality,” Tell said of the revamped bar.Connected to the pub is a new packaged goods store.The grand patio overlooking the bay will continue to be a focal point of the Deauville. Covered by a new canopy, the patio has also been given a new 40-foot-long bar where customers will be seated for drinks and meals.There is also a new 50-foot-long patio bar allowing patrons to stand and savor the water views.The remodeled dining room has a more upscale atmosphere. (Photo courtesy of Deauville Inn)Helping Fox oversee the renovation project is Taffer Dynamics Inc., a hospitality company headed by Jon Taffer, the celebrity entrepreneur best known as the host of the reality TV show “Bar Rescue.”“Bar Rescue” focuses on Taffer’s attempt to save distressed bars and restaurants. However, Fox stressed that Taffer’s consulting company is simply helping to upgrade the Deauville Inn’s menu, operations and amenities.Capitalizing on its bayfront location, the Deauville will also have a new outdoor beach bar for the summer crowds.Not only is the Deauville getting a facelift, there will also be an addition. Fox has acquired the former Uncle Bill’s Pancake House next door and is rebranding it as the Deauville’s breakfast-style restaurant.Fox said the breakfast eatery’s menu may expand to hamburgers, French fries and other lunch fare. He would also like to rent out the building for private dinner parties and other special events.Longer-range plans for the Deauville include replacing the old docks that accommodate the summer boating traffic. Fox said he must secure waterfront construction permits before installing new docks.Although the Deauville is called an inn, no rooms are currently rented to guests. Fox has discussed the possibility of renovating the three-story building’s upper floors for B&B-style lodging. There is no timetable for possibly converting the rooms.According to Strathmere.net, the Deauville Inn once offered 22 guest rooms on the top two floors.The former Uncle Bill’s Pancake House is a new addition to the Deauville Inn and will operate as a breakfast eatery. (Photo courtesy of Deauville Inn)Meanwhile, while all of the renovation work has been occurring Fox has been busy hiring more than 100 employees.“We’re staffed up and ready to go,” he said.Fox emphasized that he wants the Deauville to excel in customer service. The British-born Fox said he began appreciating the importance of customer service in the restaurant business after he came to the United States with his now-deceased parents and began working as a bus boy and waiter.While discussing the Deauville’s renovations, Fox repeatedly praised the employees for their dedication and service.To reward them, he implemented a benefits package that includes healthcare coverage through Blue Cross/Blue Shield. Rather than resorting to layoffs during the coronavirus shutdown, Fox offered employees the choice of having him pay their salaries or allowing them to go on unemployment.“When you put the tools in place and respect your people, it helps you to achieve your goals,” Fox explained of his relationship with his employees.A new beach bar under construction will accommodate the summer crowds.

A man who sexually abused a teenage girl has had his sentence increased after the Attorney General, Geoffrey Cox QC MP, referred it to the Court of Appeal for being too low.David Rawcliffe, 29, inappropriately touched the victim on several occasions between 2016 and 2018, before being reported to the police. Upon questioning by police, the offender admitted to the offences described by the victim, some of which took place when she was only 13.At Preston Crown Court, Rawcliffe pleaded guilty to 8 counts of sexual activity with a child and one count of engaging in sexual activity while in the presence of a child and was sentenced to 2 years and 4 months in prison. His sentence has now been increased to 3 years and 4 months.Speaking after the hearing the Attorney General said:“The offender’s actions have had a severe impact on the victim and I feel the increased sentence more accurately reflects this.”

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg News:Puerto Rico’s electrical grid is unlikely to be fully restored until the end of May, the head of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said Wednesday — months longer than the timeline offered by the island’s governor.Lieutenant General Todd Semonite, commanding general and chief engineer for the Corps, said in an interview Wednesday that he expects Puerto Rico’s electric grid to reach 75 percent of customers by the end of January. That should rise to 95 percent by the end of February, and 100 percent by the end of May, he said, more than eight months after Hurricane Maria hit.That differs from statements by Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello, who said in October that he hoped power would be restored to 95 percent of the grid by Dec. 15, or this Friday. The Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority made a similar pledge last month, saying it would reach 95 percent of customers by the end of December.The slow pace of restoring electricity following Hurricane Maria has become a symbol of the U.S. government’s uneven response. Just 61 percent of electricity had been restored as of Wednesday, according to data on a website run by the island’s government.The Army Corps is a key part of a task force of U.S. government and outside groups working with Puerto Rico’s government to restore power on the island.Semonite said he had told Rossello on Oct. 27 that the Dec. 15 timeline was unrealistic. “Governor, there’s no way you’re going to get 95 percent,” Semonite recounted telling Rossello. “And he was very, very upset.”“The bottom line is, he ought to be upset, because all of his people ought to have electricity,” Semonite said. “We’re just as compassionate as the governor is at getting his guys electricity. That’s why I have 700 guys that are going to be there over Christmas.”To illustrate the challenge of getting the grid fully restored, Semonite described flying over a cluster of four homes on the top of a mountain, fed by a single wire that goes up the side of a cliff.More: Puerto Rico Grid Fix Won’t Meet Governor’s Plan, Corps Says Full Electric Service Restoration in Puerto Rico Isn’t Seen Until May
By Dialogo February 04, 2013 The sophisticated electronics used by war fighters in everything from radios, remote sensors and even phones can now be made at such a low cost that they are pervasive throughout the battlefield. These electronics have become necessary for operations, but it is almost impossible to track and recover every device. At the end of operations, these electronics are often found scattered across the battlefield and might be captured by the enemy and repurposed or studied to compromise the Department of Defense’s strategic technological advantage. What if these electronics simply disappeared when no longer needed? The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) announced the Vanishing Programmable Resources (VAPR) program with the aim of revolutionizing the state of the art in transient electronics or electronics capable of dissolving into the environment around them. Transient electronics developed under VAPR should maintain the current functionality and ruggedness of conventional electronics, but, when triggered, be able to degrade partially or completely into their surroundings. Once triggered to dissolve, these electronics would be useless to any enemy who might come across them. “The commercial off-the-shelf, or COTS, electronics made for everyday purchases are durable and last nearly forever,” said Alicia Jackson, DARPA program manager. “DARPA is looking for a way to make electronics that last precisely as long as they are needed. The breakdown of such devices could be triggered by a signal sent from command or any number of possible environmental conditions, such as temperature.” DARPA has posted a special announcement for a Proposers’ Day to be held in advance of a full solicitation in the form of a broad agency announcement. Performers are sought to conduct basic research into materials, devices, manufacturing and integration processes, and design methodology that will enable a revolutionary shift in transient electronics capabilities. The program seeks to culminate in a technology demonstration that builds a circuit representative of an environmental or biomedical sensor that is able to communicate with a remote user. “DARPA has previously demonstrated that transient electronics might be used to fight infections at surgical sites,” said Jackson. “Now, we want to develop a revolutionary new class of electronics for a variety of systems whose transience does not require submersion in water. This is a tall order, and we imagine a multidisciplinary approach. Teams will likely need industry experts who understand circuits, integration, and, design. Performers from the material science community will be sought to develop novel substrates. There’s lots of room for innovation by clever people with diverse expertise.”
The Board of Governors has approved funding for a new public education and awareness program tentatively titled “Dignity in Law.”The initiative, the first of its kind in the nation, will seek to communicate the positive work of attorneys across Florida, according to President-elect Tod Aronovitz, and will be one of the key goals of his administration, which begins in July.Aronovitz, called the program “an innovative and honest answer to years of misinformation and misunderstanding about the important job that lawyers do day in and day out.” He said the program will employ new communications techniques to explain the mission and success of attorneys through the eyes of the people served, and will support the judiciary.“I think it is clear to everyone who practices law in the state of Florida that the reputation of our profession has been oversimplified, caricatured, and damaged by poor communications,” Aronovitz said. “For a small business owner, a corporate leader, or any member of the community, reputation is absolutely vital to success, and for attorneys, it can be no less important.”The program is budgeted for a maximum of $750,000 and will rely on additional financing beyond the Bar’s general fund. A voluntary checkoff will appear on the Bar’s annual membership fees form, and contributions will be sought from organizations such as The Fund and the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers.Aronovitz believes that every member should contribute to the new initiative, saying, “It is in the best interest of every attorney in Florida to open up the lines of communication with the public, to rebuild our reputation so that it truly reflects our good work, and to combat the incomplete and negative assessments that circulate about the legal system every day.”Results from the Bar’s 2001 Member Opinion Survey underscore that sentiment. Regardless of age or title, reputation was the number one issue for all. More than 56 percent of respondents reported that improving the public’s perception of lawyers and the legal profession is one of the most important issues for the Bar to address.Board of Governors member Hank Coxe said he was in full support of the new awareness and education program, saying that it could make The Florida Bar a national leader on behalf of the profession.“I think this is worth the chance,” Coxe said. “It may take time, but I think it is an effort our membership will applaud and support above any other effort we could make.”Board member Jesse Diner echoed Coxe’s remarks, saying the program was “an outside the box solution.”Board member William Phelan offered his endorsement noting that the program also is designed to improve communications with the legislature, and that it will emphasize judicial independence.The program will be managed by rbb Public Relations, a Coral Gables-based company specializing in corporate reputation. With the Supreme Court in attendance at the board’s March meeting in Tallahassee, Christine Barney, CEO of rbb, presented key elements of the program including:• A greatly enhanced Bar Web site designed to give the media greater access to the Bar’s message and a compelling reason to write legal stories.• An e-mail campaign to communicate to legislators, media, and influential people on a consistent basis.• The creation of strategic alliances with nontraditional partners, such as corporations and attractions who share the Bar’s target audience.• The creation of consumer-friendly case studies that reach the “hearts-and-minds” of anyone who sees them.• A “high intensity” editorial — not advertising — media outreach campaign to “counterbalance the negative publicity that permeates the media.”• An intense measurement system to ensure the program is delivering a return on investment.
