Coupe Du Monde Qatar,
Qatar World Cup,
By James M. Dorsey One group has been conspicuously absent in the battle for greater transparency of global soccer governance symbolized by multiple corruption scandals and match-fixing: football fans, a key stakeholder with a vested interest in demanding a thorough cleansing of the management of the sport. That however may...
Scenes From a Marriage," Ingmar Bergman, Ivo Van Hove, Emily Mann, Jan Versweyveld, Arliss Howard, Tina Benko, Dallas Roberts, Roslyn Ruff, Alex Hurt, Susannah Flood, New York Theatre Workshop, Leo A, Martin, Eric Gann, Carmen Zilles, Mia Katigbak, Emma R,
Discounting the rare scare flick, I've only once been tempted to look away from a movie screen--and succumbed to the urge. It was Ingmar Bergman's 1973 Scenes From a Marriage. The psychic pain was too much to take full on. I had to turn away from what theater's leading deconstruction...
Modernism In Ballet,
Stories In Motion,
The Joffrey Ballet's extraordinary mixed bill, Stories in Motion, exploded onstage at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago this past weekend: three ballets that trace a timeline of the infiltration of Modernism in ballet - from George Balanchine's final work for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes...
Twelve Stones is not a story of how, through determination and sheer rigid will, Ms. Carole conquered Life and made it subservient to her. It's not a tale of self-actualization. Nor is it an example of spiritual mugging.
While the target audience in this case consists of Protestants, a.k.a. "Mainline Protestants," many other kinds of people "living faithfully" in religious communities could recognize themselves in the issues involved, if not in the "selfie" portraits of potential "aliens."
By only 23, Le Grand decided to attempt a men's tailoring business in Philadelphia and by contacting factories with his sketches he soon found one to beautifully produce his bespoke suits.

Lucille Lortel Theatre,
Sarah J. Holden,
The Money Shot (title appropriated from porn-industry jargon, if you didn't already know) shouldn't be as consistently amusing as it is. LaBute get his laughs -- and he gets a carload of them -- from two embarrassingly easy targets.

There they are on my netbook, e-mails from the kids: Mum missed the flight; please phone. OK, first a little background. Rivka does have this little tendency to be late, miss planes, forget where she's put her passport and having to rush off to seek an emergency new one....
Years of research show that a baby who was unplanned or unintended is at risk for any number of things including premature birth, low birth weight, and later, doing less well in school than children whose births were planned. The sad thing is that it has never been easier to plan pregnancies.
Congress may be as unproductive as ever, but the health and prosperity of our communities isn't determined solely by Washington. It doesn't matter what state you are in -- every eligible and registered Latino voter must turn out this time and every time in order for the community to be respected and represented.
Does the form seem long? It is really not that bad. Trouble getting to the polls? You can elect absentee.
Even if population growth had no impact on the level of greenhouse gas emissions, the case for incorporating family planning into climate change discussions would still be compelling. That's because preventing unintended pregnancies helps women and families adapt to climate change.
Proposition 46 is a November 4 ballot measure that would raise the cap on medical malpractice awards that result from lawsuits filed against doctors, nurses, hospitals and community health clinics.
In a speech that was supposedly aimed at promoting Turkey's interests, Erdogan came off as a defensive and suspicious man, who sees conspiracies everywhere and feels misunderstood by everybody and thinks he is threatened from all sides.
The myth has been repeated by nearly everyone that the owners won't fire Goodell because he has done an outstanding job and brought all NFL teams a tremendous increase in financial value. The truth is quite different, and the only thing overvalued is Goodell himself.
We have the central bank of the US acting deliberately to keep workers from getting pay increases. They justify their actions over concerns about inflation, but we need not take these seriously. Who knows what they believe, but the real-world risk of a dangerous inflationary spiral ranks alongside the risk of attacks by Martians.
We need hundreds of Zephyr Teachouts, ready to challenge straying Dems -- whenever and wherever they break their campaign promises, shift their allegiances to the corporate "dark side," or forget to "dance with the ones who brought 'em." You can call that "civil war" if you like. I prefer the term "democracy."

Of all the pro-legalization arguments, this could perhaps be the strongest one. The laws don't work.
At a certain point, we will discover ourselves unable to outlaw or repent or pray away the carbon dioxide and methane blanketing the planet. If that time comes, no change of mind or heart or law will be able to derail our rendez-vous with catastrophe.
