New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday allowed the Ayodhya mediation panel to continue negotiations to develop a consensus between Hindu and Muslim parties on the temple dispute issue. The apex court also urged the mediators to continue the court-monitiored process confidentially till July 31, as it would apparently enable the top court to pass further orders. The report will be submitted in the apex court on August 1. If required, the Supreme Court will tentatively fix the hearing of appeals on Ayodhya issue from August 2.

The third round is scheduled to start about 3:30 p.m. tomorrow in Paris, where UNESCO’s Executive Board is conducting its latest session, the agency said on its website.Earlier this week the 58-member Executive Board interviewed all nine candidates and then discussed those interviews in a private meeting. Voting is by secret ballot and a winner is chosen by a simple majority of the board. The first round was held yesterday and the second round was conducted this evening, but neither round produced a winner.The nine candidates are comprised of five men and four women. They include Lithuania’s Ambassador to UNESCO, Ina Marciulionyte; Bulgarian former foreign minister Irina Gueorguieva Bokova; Ivonne Juez de A. Baki of Ecuador; and European Commissioner for External Relations, Benita Ferrero-Waldner (Austria).The other candidates are: Egyptian Culture Minister Farouk Hosny; Tanzania’s Sospeter Mwijarubi Muhongo; Russian Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Alexander Vladimirovich Yakovenko; Algeria’s Mohammed Bedjaoui; and Assistant Director-General of UNESCO’s Africa department, Nouréini Tidjani-Serpos of Benin.The person chosen by the board will serve a four-year term. The term of Koïchiro Matsuura, the current Director-General, ends this November. Having served two terms, he is not eligible for another stint. 18 September 2009A third round of voting will be held tomorrow to try to select the next Director-General of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) after none of the nine candidates for the post were able to obtain a majority of ballots in the first two rounds.

The margin of some 330,000 viewers, however, compared favourably to the average 1.1 million viewer gap ABC had built up this television season heading into the Olympics.“No one is high-fiving at this point,” said Don Nash, “Today” executive producer, “but I do feel we are headed in the right direction and I do feel a sense of energy and momentum on the show right now.”Meanwhile, backstage at “Good Morning America,” staff members held their own medal ceremony Thursday. The show is thrilled with its performance during the Olympics, said Tom Cibrowski, “GMA” senior executive producer.“We fully expected to take something of a beating and we didn’t,” he said Friday.The most encouraging sign for ABC is that “Good Morning America” didn’t lose viewers during the Olympics and its aftermath. During the Olympics, “Good Morning America” averaged 5.81 million viewers, compared with 5.77 million for the season prior to Sochi, Nielsen said.ABC tried a new strategy.Knowing that “Today” has its team at the Olympics and interviews the top athletes every day, “Good Morning America” figured in past years that it couldn’t compete and largely ignored the event. But it’s hard for a morning show to stay away from the country’s main topic of conversation for two weeks, so this year ABC sent Amy Robach to Sochi and held Olympic-themed events outside its Times Square studio.NBC tightened the race by bringing in new viewers. The show averaged a shade below 6 million viewers each day during the Olympics and drew 4.61 million on an average day prior to the games. The challenge for NBC will be keeping those new viewers, and it’s a stretch to think they’ll all stay.“Whether the new viewers came from ‘GMA’ or anyone else, it doesn’t matter to me,” Nash said. “I just want to have as many people watching the broadcast as possible.”NBC and Deborah Turness, the network’s news president, have worked hard the past few months to put a nightmarish stretch on what was once the country’s favourite morning show behind them. ABC’s team, led by Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos, capitalized on the bad vibes surrounding NBC’s dumping of Ann Curry from “Today.”NBC built a new set for “Today,” adding an orange arch on Rockefeller Plaza upon the return from Sochi, and added people like Willie Geist, Carson Daly and Tamron Hall. The show is more aggressively going after interviews, with Lauer speaking to Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and Kerry Kennedy, and Guthrie to Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg in recent weeks.“There is absolutely a new engagement between the shows and on the part of both shows to up the ante even more,” ABC’s Cibrowski said. “I think we’re all feeling that.”Big events, particularly live, provide the engine for growth at broadcast television, and that’s being felt acutely in the morning. As much as possible, the shows are trying to engage viewers with interviews and surprises, like when “GMA” held a nationwide singalong to the song “Let it Go” last week or Guthrie went on a skydiving trip with Gabby Giffords.Final ratings aren’t in for this week, and it’s expected to be a good one for ABC. Preliminary Nielsen estimates have “Good Morning America” topping 7 million viewers on Monday, when its post-Oscar coverage gives the show one of its most high-profile days of the year. “GMA” followed it up Tuesday with the announcement of a new “Dancing With the Stars” cast, a proven draw for its viewers.Key for ABC is keeping its team together — probably the true secret to its success the past few years. “Good Morning America” recently lost forecaster Sam Champion to The Weather Channel. Since that network is owned by NBC Universal, “Today” has been able to team Champion with Al Roker to cover some of this winter’s bad weather.Most important, ABC has locked in Roberts with a new contract. It is negotiating to keep Josh Elliott, who’s on the team with Lara Spencer and new weathercaster Ginger Zee.NBC did win the February ratings “sweeps” period among viewers ages 25 to 54. That’s very important for business reasons: The show uses that demographic for advertising sales, and morning TV is the most lucrative time in the broadcast business. CBS is also seeing ratings gains with its news-focused morning show, but “CBS This Morning” generally runs around 2 million to 3 million viewers behind the ABC and NBC shows.___David Bauder can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter@dbauder.

The Welsh have won 13 in a row. Source: Tommy Dickson/INPHOThat it was defied at BT Murrayfield is to the credit of Gatland and his players, especially lock totem and captain Alun Wyn Jones.Wales wing George North added: “Ireland are a quality team who have come to Cardiff before and done a job on us. We will debrief the Scotland game and we have only got a short turnaround so it’s full steam ahead for Saturday now.“Ireland have had a similar sort of tournament to us. They’ve shown great glimpses, but also not had consistency. They are still dogging it out. It makes the last game very interesting.”Subscribe to our new podcast, The42 Rugby Weekly, here: Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Share19 Tweet Email Updated Mar 11th 2019, 12:55 PM WARREN GATLAND AND Wales will bid for Grand Slam glory against Ireland on Saturday with the New Zealander admitting his team are jealous of the success of the men in green. Gatland saw Wales seal an 18-11 win over Scotland to record their 13th straight success and they are now just a game away from what would be a first Six Nations clean sweep since 2012. Gatland’s men are going for a Grand Slam. Source: Ryan Byrne/INPHOStanding in Gatland’s way is his former team, Ireland. Joe Schmidt’s side sealed a Grand Slam of their own in 2018 and also claimed a famous November win over world champions New Zealand. The Wales boss believes those victories – plus Leinster’s Guinness PRO14 and European Champions Cup double last season – are achievements his players want a taste of. “I think the added spice is that with the PRO14 the players know each other. We respect Ireland hugely for what they have achieved,” Gatland said. “They are No 2 in the world and their provinces have had a lot of success in the PRO14 and in Europe and sometimes it can breed a jealousy. You respect them, but you are desperate to beat them.“That sometimes creates the edge. A lot of it stems from that. They have been incredibly successful and I take my hat off to their provincial rugby, what they have achieved in Europe, and what the national team has done. We have got to strive to do that.“That creates competition. It is almost like a derby-type feeling. I know our group of players get incredibly motivated to play against Ireland. They want to beat them because a lot of them have been on the losing end on a number of occasions, particularly to their provincial teams.” Wales are on a remarkable run of form while Ireland haven’t hit their heights of 2018 this year, not so far at least. Gatland’s men are still wary of them and they are right to be so.An 80-minute performance has remained elusive for Wales in the Six Nations to date and against Scotland they produced an archetypal game of two halves. In the first they were dominant as they scored two fine tries through Josh Adams and Jonathan Davies. After the break concentration levels dropped and only a monumental defensive effort – in which Wales made a total of 194 tackles – saw them come out on top. Chaos awaits in Cardiff. Source: Tommy Dickson/INPHOCardiff is now preparing for an Irish invasion and what Wales hope will be a Grand Slam party. “It is going to be chaotic. We get the chance to play at home and there won’t be any lack of motivation for these players because they get to do something special,” Gatland said. “There is no doubt against England we were right on top of our game mentally and we need to be like that this week. “The challenge for Ireland is they have a team with some older and experienced players. They are often the most dangerous because there is always a big match in an experienced team. You don’t always get as much consistency, but when it really matters they can turn on that big performance.”Victory for Wales on Saturday would make Gatland the first Six Nations coach to win three Grand Slams and his team have been boosted by a positive injury update on full-back Liam Williams. “It would be my last Grand Slam with Wales and if we do that it would be unbelievable,” said Gatland, who will depart his role after this year’s World Cup in Japan.“I have loved my time in Wales. I never thought I would be here for so long. It will almost be 12 years by the time I finish. When someone presents you with an opportunity to win a Grand Slam you want to take it with both hands. We are excited about next week and about being at home in front of our crowd who were unbelievable in terms of the atmosphere they created and the drive they gave us against England. If they can produce that next week it will be a special night in Cardiff.”Wales’ Grand Slam bid remains on course despite off-the-field political chaos following the abandonment of a proposed merger between the country’s two best sides – Ospreys and Scarlets. Grand Slam-chasing Wales’ ‘jealousy’ adds extra motive against Ireland Wales boss Warren Gatland says his players are keen to settle a few scores against Ireland. 14 Comments Mar 11th 2019, 7:20 AM By Alex Bywater https://the42.ie/4534138 41,361 Views Subscribe Short URL Monday 11 Mar 2019, 12:55 PM
Multimédia : nous passons près de la moitié de notre vie devant un écranRoyaume-Uni – Un rapport publié par l’Office anglais des communications détaille les habitudes de consommation des Britanniques en termes de communication et multimédia. Résultat : 45 % du temps passé sur ces technologies pour l’adulte moyen, plus encore pour les jeunes, mais les seniors rattrapent leur retard.L’étude réalisée par l’Ofcom, l’autorité régulatrice des télécommunications outre-Manche, montre sans surprise une consommation importante des citoyens dans ce domaine. Les adultes regardent chaque jour 212 minutes de vidéo (télévision, clips en ligne, DVD…), avec un pic à 21h, prime time oblige. Chaque personne passe en moyenne 80 minutes à envoyer e-mails ou SMS, ou à fréquenter les réseaux sociaux.À lire aussiDe nouvelles batteries sodium-ion pourraient révolutionner l’industrie et les énergies renouvelablesEn étant eux-mêmes “multitâches”, les utilisateurs multiplient les heures de communication dans un même laps de temps : en écoutant de la musique tout en envoyant des courriels, en expédiant des SMS tout en surfant sur le web, ils cumulent souvent huit heures réelles d’utilisation de médias pour sept heures passées devant leur écran. Les 16-24 ans sont les maîtres incontestés de ce sport, réussissant à caser près de cinq heures de communication en deux heures vécues !Enfin, plus de la moitié des plus de 55 ans ont accès au haut débit, et leur intérêt pour les réseaux sociaux a doublé ces deux dernières années, 12% d’entre eux étant aujourd’hui membres de l’un d’eux. La télévision reste le média populaire par excellence, notamment depuis l’avènement de la haute définition, avec 5 millions de foyers regardant les chaînes HD.

Five Hot Shot crews are expected in Kenai tonight to assist with the Card Street Fire in Sterling.Division of Forestry spokesperson Terry Anderson says the fire slowed down a bit in the early morning hours after rapidly growing to more than 1,200 acres. To the south and east, the fire is burning into territory that was burned during last year’s Funny River Fire.photo courtesy of Alaska Division of Forestry“Our concerns are yes, there’s less available fuels, but there’s (other) issues,” Anderson said. “The ground is no longer frozen and so there’s re-burn potential and deep burning potential. In Alaska, we have fuels that are sometimes a foot thick in the tundra. Those are long-term fire care issues that we have to be aware of.”Anderson says the forecast calls for lightning. That could cause the winds to become very erratic in the area.“The national lightening forecast for dry lightening, which firefighters always go over in the morning, is a forecast from 1-6,” Anderson said. “Usually in Alaska you may see twos or threes or fours for a lightening forecast. The forecast for the Kenai is a six today. That’s about as high as it gets.”Evacuation efforts are still underway in the subdivisions from Card Street east to the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge boundary mile 76 of the Sterling Highway, south to the Kenai River. This still includes Feuding Lane and Kenai Keyes.The Sterling Highway is still open as of 10:30 a.m., but officials are asking people to avoid the area if possible.Maps of the fire are still being drawn up at this time.
Williams wants to move as soon as he can. Whereas Peter Gilila has found peace with the river, Williams is scared. Not everybody along the riverbank wants to wait, though. “I never experienced that much land coming off the ground ever before in my life that fast,” Williams said. “It freaked me out when I saw that happening. We couldn’t even do nothing about it.” “If it comes to that, yes,” Peter Gilila responded to that question. Gilila is aware of the risks, and he’s prepared to deal with them as they come. “My son came out and said, ‘Dad, go and look at uncle Pete’s bank.’ I said, ‘What’s wrong with it?’ he said, ‘It goes up to his house.’ I said ‘No, it can’t be. I just walked through it yesterday.’ I went out and it was ‘wuh-oh…’” David said. Akiak lost a mile-long stretch of riverbank to erosion last month. Six houses are now within 100 feet of the riverbank and need to be moved as soon as possible, but some people don’t want to move. Akiak got running water and sewer hooked up in 2012. Before that, people used honeybuckets and hauled water from the river. Since then, things have changed. Tribal Administrator Sheila Carl hopes that they can get all the money this year, but water and sewer might be added after a year or two. She’s worried if people wait too long to move their homes. Just moving the house will cost almost $100,000. Adding water, sewer, roads and electricity will be several times the cost of the initial move. “The river is unusable now, too contaminated,” Peter said. “For the health of my grandchildren and those living in the house, I’d like to continue to have the running water.” “Before anyone could react, a whole smokehouse just kinda rolled into the river,” Carl remembered. “Are they just gonna let their house roll into the river?” Arnold Williams’ home next to the eroded riverbank. (Photo by Greg Kim / KYUK) “But like I say, it’s not the end of the world there,” Gilila said. “Because I can rebuild. And that’s what we do, that’s what we’ve always been doing: rebuilding. This is not a new situation for me.” “I wouldn’t move either,” said his brother, David Gilila. “That’s where we grew up, right next to it, the old house we grew up in. That’s where we grew up.” City Administrator David Gilila remembers the day all this happened. David has been working to get funding to move the homes close to the river. The closest one belongs to his brother, Peter Gilila, but Peter is not so eager to move. He says that he has one big condition: “As long as water and sewer are connected. If not, I’m staying. I don’t want to go back to the honeybucket.” “You wanna save your family, you wanna save your house, move it,” Williams said. The entire riverbank looks like it’s in surgery. Tarps, ropes and metal poles try to hold the land together, but it’s like bandaging a severed limb. Clumps of mud and chunks of permafrost line the edge of the bank to show that the wound is still fresh. In one section of the bank, the river has carved a particularly big bite out of the land. The river is 20 feet away from swallowing one of the homes. Williams now works on the riverbank, moving sandbags, securing tarps. He says he likes that work. It gives him a little control over his situation, and he tells his neighbors they should take control of theirs. “I’m kinda wanting water and sewer at the same time too, alright?” said Arnold Williams, who lives a few houses down from Peter. “I don’t wana lose my house, you know? This is what my uncle worked hard to give me. I wouldn’t want him to do all that work for nothing, to see it going down the river.” Akiak is working to put together its hazard mitigation plan and submit it to FEMA by September. That will make them eligible for the increased disaster funding the State of Alaska received because of the earthquake last year. They hope to move the houses this year, water, sewer, pipes and all.

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. In research that may be a key step toward real-life quantum communication—the transmission of information using atoms, photons, or other quantum objects—researchers created an experiment in which a quantum bit of information is transported across a distance of seven meters and briefly stored in memory. This is the first time that both quantum memory and teleportation, as the information transfer is known, have been demonstrated in a single experiment. The experiment was performed by scientists from the University of Heidelberg in Germany, the University of Science and Technology of China, and the Atomic Institute of the Austrian Universities in Austria. The work was led by Prof. Jian-Wei Pan, a physicist at the University of Heidelberg.A quantum bit, or qubit, is the most basic unit of quantum information. It takes the form of a particular configuration, or “state,” of an atom or photon. Unlike a traditional computer bit, the most basic piece of information a computer can store, qubits represent the superposition of “0” and “1,” rather than either a 0 or 1. Additonally, a qubit cannot be copied in the traditional sense. It can only be transferred, without leaving any trace of the original.Quantum teleportation is the way to transfer an unknown quantum state to a distant location without getting any information about the state in the course of this transfer. When a qubit is teleported across a distance, the process is remarkable in that the sending and receiving qubits are not physically connected in any way, and do not “know” of each other’s existence. But through a quantum phenomenon called entanglement, one qubit is nonetheless able to assume the quantum state of another without physically interacting with it.In the present research, described in the January 20 online edition of Nature Physics, an unknown quantum state of a photonic qubit is transferred into quantum memory via teleportation and is stored by two clusters of rubidium atoms. Each cluster contains approximately one million atoms, collected by a magneto-optical trap. The teleported photonic qubit can be stored in memory and read out up to eight microseconds (millionths of a second) before the state is lost.“Such an interface to map the quantum states of photons onto the quantum states of matter, and to retrieve them without destroying the quantum character of the stored information, is an essential part of future quantum technologies,” said Pan to PhysOrg.com. “It represents an important step towards efficient and scalable connection of quantum networks.”The quantum states carried by the photonic qubits are encoded in the photons’ polarization, or the alignment of the photons’ emitted electric fields. Each rubidium cluster encodes the information as a collective spin state over all of the electrons in the cluster. Like other unchangeable properties like mass and charge, spin, or angular momentum, is an intrinsic characteristic of an electron.First, the research group entangled the polarization state of the photons and the spin state of the atom clusters. This entanglement is then exploited to teleport the unknown state of a single photonic qubit onto an atomic qubit seven meters away. This is done by taking a simultaneous measurement of the entangled photons and the photon to be teleported. Taking that measurement entangles the two photons and projects the second photon’s state onto the atom clusters.This setup does have some serious problems. The quantum memory duration is very short and the probability that the photon will be teleported is low. Therefore, the researchers say that “significant improvements” need to be made before the scheme could be used in practical applications.Citation: Yu-Ao Chen, Shuai Chen, Zhen-Sheng Yuan, Bo Zhao, Chih-Sung Chuu, Jörg Schmiedmayer & Jian-Wei Pan Nature Physics advance online publication, 20 January 2008 (DOI:10.1038/nphys832).Copyright 2008 PhysOrg.com.

The St Lawrence School Old boys Association is drumming up their musical event ‘Utsav’ in a new format in December, where alumni from other schools of the city will be invited to participate. A plethora of school rock bands will be coming on stage in competitive space to showcase their music and to relive their “school memories”.The rockfest will be held as part of the annual day celebration of the school and will play out for at least five hours on stage. “We are not looking for any great musicians here. All of us wanted to get up on stage and show off our musical skills when we were in school. We are just trying to relive that memory here,” said Father Sebastian James sj, Principal of the school and President of SLOBA.

WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite Only 3,000 patients worldwide have been treated with bedaquiline, and fewer than 200 with delamanid – only 2% of the 150,000 people around the world that could benefit.“MSF is treating some of the lucky few people in South Africa — and in fact the whole world – to receive access to strengthened treatment regimens including bedaquiline and delamanid,” said Dr. Jennifer Hughes of MSF in South Africa. “South Africa’s Department of Health has been a leader in accessing new DR-TB drugs, with over 1,750 patients receiving bedaquiline nationally since 2013.Ubuntu clinic (integrated TB/HIV) in Khayelitsha.Patients receiving bedaquiline in South Africa had 77% ‘culture conversion’ rates from TB-positive to negative, which is a promising sign that their treatment may ultimately be successful. Additional information from South Africa showed similar safety and efficacy even when bedaquiline was given together with antiretroviral therapy (ART) to TB/HIV co-infected people, another sign that this drug has the potential to transform DR-TB treatment in coming years.Delamanid, however, is not yet as widely available in South Africa.“TB is curable, yet it is now the infectious disease that kills the most people in the world,” said Dr. Grania Brigden, TB Advisor for the MSF Access Campaign. “We desperately need treatment that is easier for people to tolerate, that cures more people, and that is more available and affordable, otherwise it’s just deadly business as usual.” *Article supplied by Doctors Without Borders (MSF). Follow them on Facebook and Twitter for more groundbreaking initiatives. Doctors Without Borders (MSF), other treatment providers in South Africa and globally have found that the first new drugs in half a century to be developed for treating drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB) are offering new hope to patients — but significant challenges remain to improve availability and affordability of these treatments.Current treatment regimens for DR-TB involve thousands of pills taken over two years, which can have devastating side effects and ultimately only work for 50% of people with multidrug-resistant (MDR) TB and 26% of people with extensively drug-resistant (XDR) TB.Access to new drugs bedaquiline and delamanid along with ‘repurposed’ drugs — not specifically developed for TB but that have shown efficacy in treating TB — could be a significant step toward finding a shorter, more tolerable DR-TB regimen in the future.This is good news for South Africa, which has one of the highest burdens of multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) in the world, with 30,000 new cases each year, over 18,000 people diagnosed and over 11,500 put on treatment in 2014.

The law also created a government-controlled tribunal which could impose fines on individual journalists of $5,000 and to media companies of $200,000 for breaching the code of conduct.Journalists are being threatened, intimidated and attacked and the government is often the culprit, the report said.The deteriorating climate for the media comes at a time when press scrutiny and public discussion are essential for continued development of Kenya’s democracy and economy, the report said.The report said that one of the issues that need public discourse and press scrutiny is the security threat from al-Shabab, the Islamic militants based in neighboring Somalia who’ve claimed responsibility for numerous attacks in Kenya including for the April massacre at Garissa University that killed at least 147 people and the 2013 extremist attack on Nairobi’s Westgate Mall. Also needing press scrutiny, according to the report, is the situation for Kenya’s deputy president who is under indictment from the International Criminal Court, although similar charges were dropped against the president.

Freddie Mac Records $28.8B in 2012 Multifamily Volumes in Secondary Market Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Delinquency Freddie Mac Investors Lenders & Servicers Mortgage-Backed Securities Service Providers 2013-01-30 Esther Cho January 30, 2013 413 Views As the multifamily sector continues to flourish, “”Freddie Mac””:http://www.freddiemac.com/ also announced it hit record volume for its multifamily business. [IMAGE]In 2012, the GSE supported the multifamily sector with $28.8 billion. The figure represents a 42 percent increase from 20.3 billion in 2011 and is the highest level since [COLUMN_BREAK]2008, when multifamily business activity reached a record $24 billion. “”It was a phenomenal year for us and the sellers and servicers in our network,”” said David Brickman, SVP of Freddie Mac Multifamily. “”We achieved record volume while maintaining strong credit discipline and providing essential liquidity to the growing multifamily mortgage market. In the fourth quarter we completed about 33 percent of our yearly volume–approximately $10 billion in multifamily mortgages.””Overall, the GSE was able to provide financing for over 1,600 properties, which translates into more than 435,000 apartment units. In addition, most of the units are affordable to low- or moderate-income families. Freddie Mac also announced the multifamily business in 2012 hit the lowest delinquency rate in two years. “”Multifamily is a profitable business line for Freddie Mac, and has produced nearly $4 billion in segment earnings since 2010. This includes $1.65 billion in the first nine months of 2012,”” Brickman added. Share
NFL Power Rankings, Week 10: Bengals up to No. 2; Broncos fall#6 (holding steady)Spoke to Larry Fitzgerald on “NFL HQ” this past week, and I felt compelled to ask him how Chris Johnson has made such a comeback.

(AP Photo/Charles Sykes, File) Broadway’s box office booms, with grosses and attendance up NEW YORK, N.Y. – Broadway grosses hit another record high last season by pulling in $1.7 billion, fueled by fervent demand to see such draws as Bruce Springsteen, Bette Midler and a grown-up Harry Potter.Data from the Broadway League, the national trade association for the industry, released Tuesday shows box office receipts were up 17.1 per cent over last season’s $1.45 billion.Another good note in the financial windfall was that attendance was up, coming in a 13.79 million, an increase of 3.9 per cent at last season’s 13.27 million. That indicates some broadening of ticket-buyers, but mostly just higher prices pushing the yearly box-office records.Broadway had a healthy cluster of new powerhouse earners this season, including Tina Fey’s “Mean Girls,” the British import “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” and Springsteen. They added to established megahits such as “Hamilton,” ”Hello, Dolly!” and “Dear Evan Hansen.”The season ended with several shows breaking individual theatre box-office records, including the revival of Edward Albee’s “Three Tall Women,” which earned $940,362 for the eight show week at the Golden Theatre, and “Mean Girls,” which set a new milestone for an eight-performance week at the Golden Theatre with $1,565,923.Charlotte St. Martin, president of the Broadway League, in a statement said over 80 per cent of Broadway shows had an average paid admission of under $130 and 60 per cent had an average paid admission of less than $101.A total of 33 shows opened during the season. There were seven new musicals, three musical revivals, 10 original plays, 10 play revivals and three special events. Last season saw 45 shows open.The season — in a periodic quirk of the calendar, it was a 53-week season — began May 22, 2017, and ended Sunday. The number of playing weeks — Broadway’s occupancy rate — was 1,624, up 2.8 per cent.___Mark Kennedy is at http://twitter.com/KennedyTwits

stakeholder who made his modest contribution to your emergence as President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces I owe you nothing but the truth I was not a member of your party when I volunteered to support your mission and ambition in 2015 I was elated when Nigerians succeeded in chasing away the profligate and reckless government of the PDP led by President Goodluck Jonathan I was one of those who unleashed terror on that government and I subsequently presented you with a compilation of my articles in which I criticised and advised the then President free of charge I never expected that our situation could ever get worse under the APC government that almost literally promised heaven and earth But it has become evident that it is easier to govern by words of mouth than by force of action It is indeed shameful that those like me who supported you so vociferously have become butts of jokes everywhere we go Sir I plead with you to ignore your acolytes who may be telling you that all is well in Nigeria My unequivocal verdict without any fear of contradiction is that things are very bad While I will not in all honesty totally heap the blame on you there is no doubt that your government has been less than competent I’m reasonably convinced that you have not availed yourself of the abundant talents it has so pleased God to endow Nigeria with Rather you’ve chosen to saddle yourself with hungry lions and deadwoods that you’ve resurrected from penury and oblivion Leadership should be about managing people and resources Most of the people you are working with are already retired or tired and with little or nothing new to contribute It is grossly unfair that it was very convenient for us to lampoon and scandalise Dr Goodluck Jonathan yet most of us have remained funereally silent and unreasonably complicit in the evil that the current men of power are perpetrating and perpetuating under your watch Unknown to you Sir some people are merely using you to rule by proxy There is no evidence of discipline in your team one of the greatest things you preached so fervently about in your first coming as military Head of State Your acolytes are virtually getting away with murder Someone somewhere sat down with birds of the same feathers to conjure and compile the most disgraceful list of political appointees ever and yet nothing has happened to those who brought such perfidious insults on our nation Instead we are being regaled with tales by the moonlight to gloss over serious maladies in the polity and damning treachery against our nation No serious apologies No penitence Only some foolhardy cockiness from those who will repeat the same nonsense when tomorrow comes Your Excellency it has become very difficult if not impossible to defend the excessive shortcomings of your government please permit my oxymoron Sir We definitely want you to succeed but it seems some demons are desperately determined to make you fail by all means The more your administration unravels the more ridiculously hopeless it seems You have waltzed from crisis to crisis instead of from glory to glory as most of us expected We thought you truly possessed the magic wand and talismanic effect to make all our problems evaporate and vamoose in a jiffy We did not expect to be regularly mesmerised by impotent excuses galore I sincerely doff my hat to your wonderful wife for her rare and uncommon courage Regardless of what her detractors may say she is the only insider who has been trying to say it as it is Even if some of her critics feel she’s seeking for relevance in your kingdom it is still within her rights I’m sure that when the day of reckoning comes you will remember and appreciate her timely warnings Without mincing words what Madam Aisha Buhari has been trying to tell you in clear terms is that this government is swimming in a big foul mess and that you should not be carried away by the fake adulation and false adoration you see all around you There is no government in Nigeria that did not enjoy the services of praise-singers who disappeared as soon as the government itself collapsed like a pack of cards Ask President Jonathan I’m aware that your foot-soldiers are already warming up for the next election I really do not know what they hope to tell and sell to the electorate this time particularly after the colossal failure of the last three years I do not see how they expect to fund your campaign without resorting to the same type of extravagant jamboree we witnessed in the dying and last days of the PDP’s prodigality As a result of your decision to contest again you are being forced by circumstances beyond your control to compromise and capitulate on your known principles Is it not better and more profitable to return home triumphantly with your reputation intact than to win a pyrrhic victory with everything you ever stood for wasted on the altar of vainglorious aggrandisement What guarantees do you have that you will win the next election even if you agree to sell Nigeria to the political gladiators Sir I’m pleading with you in the name of God the Merciful and all-powerful that you don’t need two terms or eight years in power to prove your greatness Nelson Mandela spent only one term in power and retired to superlative glory as the world’s most respected and revered and idolised statesman Robert Mugabe spent about four decades in power yet he returned home in total infamy and unenviable disgrace It is a lesson of life that we must all learn sooner rather than later that man shall not live by power alone I know my preaching is not likely to touch you and your hardened supporters but at the very least I want it to be on record that I spoke publicly out of genuine love and concern while you were being goaded on by those who stand to gain more if you win a re-election next year For most of those asking you to continue by fire and by force it is always about their personal agenda and survival They know their political careers would come to a shuddering halt and abrupt standstill should you fail in your bid to come back In their desperation to come back at all costs they are going to do exactly what PDP did or even much worse What moral authority would you then have to justify the continued detention and harassment of some of the PDP operatives accused of wasting government resources on Jonathan’s truncated re-election bid Who amongst us can in good conscience say in the market place that you won the last election on pure merit and that no substantial government funding went into your campaigns This year promises to be an interesting one You will soon discover how treacherous human beings can be when some of those hailing you today as the authentic messiah begin to show you their true colours Our country is bleeding dangerously while some over-pampered politicians can only think of winning elections by hook or by crook The quality of your appointees in recent time points to how directionless your government has finally become In a country overflowing with so many amazing brains and talents it is incredibly shameful that those are your best representatives for our country The easiest way for a leader to fail is to continue to attract those much worse than himself Conversely the best way to succeed is for a leader to recognise and attract and surround himself with those much better in all aspects of human endeavour This does not erase or take anything away from the leader but it actually enhances his personality and how he is perceived by everyone The late sage of blessed memory Chief Obafemi Awolowo was a veritable example of how a leader can effectively tap into the collective brains of some geniuses and add to his own in a way that makes him appear super-human Nigeria has never been in short supply of whiz kids at home and abroad but Nigeria started dying when our leaders stopped respecting merit and preferred to enthrone mediocrity The truth is mediocrity begets further mediocrity The few good leaders in your government have not been able to display their wizardry out of fear and trepidation that some cabal would mark them out and hack them down so ruthlessly It is a sign of the times that the courage astuteness and brilliance that made them stand out in the political crowd has suddenly taken flight and they are now little more than wimps in your insipid government The bureaucracy in Abuja is enough to suffocate and disorientate any fertile mind If I were in your shoes I would consider that it is not too late to groom and propel some of the best brains in APC or even those living beyond the shores of Nigeria to succeed me You do not need to look far in this regard but I will not make any suggestions today lest it be misinterpreted that I am touting any particular individual as a worthy successor I’m reasonably convinced that you have worked very hard and seem to have reached your peak To God be the glory In a country of nearly 200 million people God has been too kind to you Apart from former President Olusegun Obasanjo no other Nigerian has been given a second chance so miraculously You will be able to justify this unmerited favour by leaving Nigeria much better than you met it The only way you can do that in the next remaining year is to sacrifice your own personal ambition and hand over the country to proven and tested modern and cosmopolitan technocrats The world has moved beyond the backwardness that we are being saddled with in Nigeria today The world expect us to be the true giant and leader of Africa not by words but in deed My appeal to you is to urgently do a self-assessment to determine and decide on whether you are what Nigeria needs at this time and age for our country to join the comity of other nations in their march towards technological advancement political stability social security and economic prosperity With all due respect Sir if your answer is yes to the above you may go ahead and contest but if in all honesty the answer is no my prayer is that you will find the courage and selfless spirit to quit the stage while the ovation is loudest That in itself would be a deserving legacy I’m watching and waiting for your patriotic decision with bated breath Thank you Mr President for your usual attention and kind consideration of
