Bernadette Peters on Streep, Returning to Broadway & Writing a Memoir

first_imgBroadway icon Bernadette Peters and Oscar and Tony nominee Laura Linney joined Andy Cohen in the Watch What Happens Live Clubhouse on July 8. After taking shots with comedian (and part-time Bernadette Peters impersonator) Cole Escola, Peters spoke of the experience of seeing Meryl Streep in Into the Woods on the big screen (it was “very interesting”). Will she return to the Great White Way? “I never know what’s going to happen. If something is irresistible, I would love to do it.” There’s one future project that Peters will consider—writing a memoir. “I always thought I would write it when I could say, ‘And this is what life is about,’” she said. “I don’t think I’ve quite learned it yet.” Peters and Linney met at Broadway Barks a few years ago, so imagine Peters’ reaction to Linney saying she’d kill off the dog from Downton Abbey.

Great Smoky Mountain National Park to begin opening on Saturday

first_imgPhoto from Getty Images This Saturday, Great Smoky Mountain National Park will begin a phased reopening when many roads and trails open to visitors once again. “The health and safety of employees, partners, volunteers, visitors, and local residents remains the highest priority in park reopening decisions,” the park said in a press release. Outdoor Revival, a new podcast created by “seasoned outdoor industry professionals,” aims to help anyone and everyone who loves the outdoors better understand how they can safely and responsibly recreate during the pandemic, their website says.  The park will implement new safety measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Campgrounds, picnic pavilions, visitor centers and many secondary roads will remain closed during the first reopening phase. Park officials ask the public to follow health orders, avoid crowding, practice Leave No Trace principles and avoid high-risk outdoor activities.  “Even though we are a band of seasoned outdoor professionals, we could not make sense of all the information and mis-information we were getting from the mainstream media,” the podcast creators said on their website. “So we decided to take it upon ourselves to seek out the top figures in the outdoor industry and create a resources for all who love the outdoors but want to keep themselves as well as everyone around them safe and healthy.”  West Virginia anglers can fish for free through May 31center_img Great Smoky Mountain National Park to begin opening on Saturday The waiver applies only to fishing licenses but includes a waiver for trout and conservation stamps.

Avian flu pops up in German zoo

first_imgAug 4, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – A swan tested positive for H5N1 avian influenza at a German zoo yesterday, signaling the virus’s re-emergence in the country after a 3-month lull.A black Australian swan at the Dresden Zoo in eastern Germany was found dead on Aug 1, but zoo officials weren’t too concerned at first because deaths in the breed are common, zoo biologist Ron Brockmann told Deutsche Presse-Agentur (DPA). But after the bird tested positive for H5N1 yesterday, he said, the zoo quarantined other animals and sought government permission to vaccinate the rest of the zoo’s collection of 720 birds of 112 species.The swan was the first zoo animal infected in Germany, according to the story.  Brockmann said the virus might have entered the zoo last winter when wild birds visited the zoo’s ponds. The staff is worried that other animals in the zoo may become infected with the H5N1 virus if they eat dead birds, he said.Germany’s last outbreaks of H5N1 avian flu were in February among wild birds and in April in farm poultry, Agence France-Presse reported today.In other developments, a man in Vietnam who was hospitalized with possible avian flu tested negative yesterday, according to news services. The patient is from the southern province of Kien Giang, on the Cambodian border in the Mekong Delta. Vietnam hasn’t had a confirmed human H5N1 case since November 2005.Three people in Thailand have also been cleared of H5N1 infection, according to the Bangkok Post. One is a 9-year-old girl from Lop Buri province in central Thailand who died 2 days ago. The other two patients—a 17-year-old boy and a 42-year-old woman—are from Chachoengsao province, east of Bangkok. The tests indicated that all three patients had a type A flu virus, but not H5N1, the newspaper said.As of yesterday, the Thai Health Ministry reported that 97 patients from 24 provinces were under surveillance for possible avian flu. Those numbers were down from 164 patients in 21 provinces the previous day.Thailand’s only confirmed human H5N1 case this year was in a 17-year-old boy from Phichit province who died of the disease Jul 24. A report in the Aug 3 Eurosurveillance Weekly suggests that the boy’s death indicates that poultry deaths in Thailand are being underreported. The authors observe that poultry deaths in the country were not reported until Jul 24, the day the boy died.The boy’s case may be an example of a “sentinel human,” meaning a human H5N1 case that triggers reporting of the disease in poultry, the report says.See also:Eurosurveillance Weekly report on avian influenza in Thailandhttp://www.eurosurveillance.org/ViewArticle.aspx?ArticleId=3012last_img read more

Liverpool handed major boost with key duo in contention for Norwich game

first_img Daniel Sturridge 1 Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge and captain Jordan Henderson could both make their comebacks in Sunday’s home clash with Norwich, Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has indicated.Sturridge has been back in full training since last week after recovering from a hip operation in May, while midfielder Henderson this week underwent a specialist procedure in the United States in an attempt to cure an ongoing heel problem.And Rodgers said on Friday: “Jordan will train today so we’ll see how he comes through that – he has obviously been away and had some work done on his foot, so hopefully all will be well with that but we’ll assess it over the next 48 hours.“Daniel has been training with the team now for a week or so and again we will assess that in relation to the game.”Rodgers believes Sturridge’s reintegration could help turn the Reds’ form around after successive league defeats, and is looking forward to seeing the England man strike up an understanding with Christian Benteke.“Daniel, on his game, is one of the best there is – there are not too many who can compare with him when he is at his level,” said the Ulsterman.“When he can stretch teams like he can with his pace and the wonderful variety in his finishing, you put Christian alongside that, [Philippe] Coutinho in behind that or to the side of it, then other players support that – it is a really exciting dynamic.“We have probably been waiting for that for quite a period of time but those types of players like Daniel, with that quality, can give a totally different perspective to your team.”last_img read more
