first_imgLawrence E. Stager, A.B. ’65, A.M. ’72, Ph.D. ’75, Dorot Professor of the Archaeology of Israel Emeritus and former Director of the Harvard Semitic Museum, was recently named the 2016 recipient of the Percia Schimmel Prize. The Schimmel Prize is given by the Israel Museum, Jerusalem to outstanding scholars in recognition of major contributions to the field of the archaeology of Israel and the broader ancient Near East.“This is Israel’s most important and distinguished prize in archaeology, and in the 37 years of its existence has only occasionally been presented to non-Israeli scholars,” said Peter Machinist, Hancock Professor of Hebrew and other Oriental Languages.Although Stager’s scholarly contributions span an array of fields from biblical studies to demography to social theory, he is perhaps best known for his leadership of the Leon Levy Expedition to Ashkelon  – leadership in which his former student, Daniel Master, eventually joined him. This 30-year, multi-disciplinary exploration of Israel’s pre-eminent ancient port produced many important insights into key historical issues ranging from the Bronze Age through the Crusader Period. The expedition is currently being celebrated in an exhibition of its discoveries that opened in July at the Rockefeller Archaeological Museum in Jerusalem.Stager was presented with the Schimmel Prize in a July ceremony in by Dr. Haim Gitler, Chief Curator of Archaeology at the Israel Museum.last_img read more

California jobless agency was warned of fraud, did little

first_imgSACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A new audit blames California’s unemployment agency for “significant missteps and inaction” that led to at least $10.4 billion in payments for fraudulent jobless claims during the pandemic. The report released Thursday by California State Auditor Elaine Howle said the true amount of fraudulent payments is likely far higher. The agency itself this week said it’s investigating another $20 billion in payments for possible fraud. Howle said last spring the federal government warned the Employment Development Department it was at risk for increased fraud. But the agency waited four months to make any substantive changes. The agency said the Trump administration did not provide it enough support, while Howle said state officials missed fraud because of their lax approach.last_img read more

Glenn Close May Headline Sunset Boulevard in the Spring

first_imgGlenn Close in ‘Sunset Boulevard'(Photo: Richard Hubert Smith) The rumors continue! After breaking the hearts of London’s theater critics and audiences with one look this past spring, Glenn Close may be ready for her close-up once again on Broadway. The English National Opera’s rapturously received revival of Sunset Boulevard, headlined by Close reprising her Tony-winning role of Norma Desmond, could transfer to the Great White Way’s Palace Theatre.According to the New York Post, the engagement would last 20 weeks starting in January 2017, if producers can make the finances work. The recent London incarnation of the Tony-winning tuner had around 50 musicians.No word yet on further casting, but the semi-staged ENO production was directed Lonny Price and co-starred Michael Xavier as Joe Gillis, Siobhan Dillon as Betty Shaefer and Fred Johanson as Max Von Mayerling.Close was recently seen in A Delicate Balance on Broadway, the first time she had appeared on the Main Stem in 17 years. The six-time Oscar nominee got her start on the Great White Way, and also won the Tony for her work in The Real Thing and Death and the Maiden. Her film and TV roles include Dangerous Liaisons, Air Force One, Fatal Attraction and Damages.Featuring a score by Andrew Lloyd Webber and a book and lyrics by Christopher Hampton and Don Black, Sunset Boulevard premiered in the West End in 1993, directed by Trevor Nunn and starring Patti LuPone. In a widely publicized upset that resulted in an out-of-court settlement, Close brought the role to Broadway the following year. The production garnered seven Tony Awards including Best Musical.Based on the 1950 film of the same name, Sunset Boulevard tells the story of Norma Desmond, an aging silent film star who recruits young writer Joe Gillis to help relaunch her career in the world of talking films. A reclusive shut-in, Desmond forms an unhealthy obsession with Gillis and soon demands he move in to her lavish Hollywood mansion.The Palace Theatre currently plays host to An American in Paris, which will close on October 9 and is due to undergo renovation in a year or so.

Jenny Lewis Dazzles The Space at Westbury [Concert Review]

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Jenny Lewis exuded ’70s California cool last Thursday onstage at The Space at Westbury as part of her tour promoting her third solo album, The Voyager. The 38-year-old songwriter’s signature music style, engaging stage presence, and powerful vocals prove yet again that she is an artist still very much in her prime.Her genre has always been difficult to label, as her newest album proves: While revered as an indie goddess, Lewis’ music draws influences from rock, country, pop, and even disco. The artfully structured guitar and drumbeats are mixed with her expertly crafted lyrics about love and relationships, intimate insecurities, and life’s hardships.Of course, Lewis has an abundance of upbeat, fun songs to balance out her performance, and The Voyager’s album art of lighthearted ethereal colors and cloudlike forms is reflected everywhere at her live show—the instruments, backdrop, and even Lewis’ outfit reflect this dreamlike, vibrant experience. Lewis pranced and danced around the stage with confidence, teasing the crowd with winks and outstretched hands during a nearly 10-minute performance of “The Next Messiah,” a tune that drifts between bassy groove and jazzy funk and also features male-female vocals.“Thanks for coming out tonight. Not sure how you got here, Long Island—if you took a train, or a boat,” she joked, to resounding laughter from the audience.Fans of Lewis from her days as frontwoman for the indie group Rilo Kiley were not disappointed. Lewis had a number of throwback tunes for fans, including opening her set with the 2007 hit “Silver Linings.” And when Lewis closed with “A Better Son/Daughter,” it seemed as if the 250-plus attendees were all singing along as she belted out the powerful finale. Lewis then returned to the stage for a three-song encore. Before concluding with her new single, “She’s Not Me,” Lewis performed a beautifully haunting, almost a cappella version of “Acid Tongue” with her five bandmates harmonizing backup vocals behind her. She also playfully pandered to the crowd with a twist on the lyrics, singing, “I’ve been down to Montauk and dropped acid on my tongue.”Overall, Lewis demonstrates that rare ability of appearing completely effortless as she hits high notes and strums away on her guitar. Even as the crowd and her backup singers matched every word, she still seemed to be the only voice in the venue, singing just to you.Opening for Lewis was Girlpool, the Los Angeles-based low-fi duo, who were equally excellent. Using just a guitar, a bass, and alternating vocals—that’s right, no drummer—musicians Harmony Tividad and Cleo Tucker impressed the crowd with their sometimes-visceral, sometimes-fun punk tunes.The venue was great as well. Open for only a year, The Space at Westbury offers fantastic acoustics, several bars, and a good mix of standing room and seating.Jenny Lewis and her band performing at The Space at Westbury on Nov. 6, 2014. (Jeff Main/Long Island Press)Here’s the setlist (from a fan who tore it off the stage minutes after Lewis split):“Silver Lining”“Just One of the Guys”“Head Underwater”“Slippery Slopes”“Moneymaker”“Next Messiah”“The Voyager”“The New You”“Late Bloomer”“You Are What You Love”“Melt Your Heart”“Rise Up with Fists!!!”“Aloha”“Love U Forever”“A Better Son/Daughter”Encore:“With Arms Up”“Acid Tongue”“She’s Not Me”For more amazing gigs at The Space at Westbury and across Long Island, check out The Island Ear!last_img read more
