Inside the annual ‘Messiah’ sing

first_imgA different noise filled the Dunster House dining hall on Dec. 5. The clinking of silverware, scraping of chairs, and chatter of students was replaced by singing and orchestra music from the 42nd Dunster House “Messiah” sing.The sing is a casual but beloved annual performance of “Messiah,” an oratorio from 1741 by George Frideric Handel, using a trained conductor, orchestra, and soloists with the choir comprised of audience members.Gund University Organist and Choirmaster in the Memorial Church Edward Elwyn Jones led this year’s performance with accompaniment from the Bach Society Orchestra, an undergraduate student-run orchestra, and four soloists. Two of the four live in Dunster, a point that current graduate student Seth Herbst ’08, the organizer and a tutor in the house, said made this year special.The good-natured choir easily followed Jones’ frequent suggestions and encouragement. After the first song, he asked them to move in closer and form a “proper choir,” as he called it.“It’s a glorified sing-along, in the best way,” Herbst said. The event was open to the public and drew members from all over, as well as a tutors, students, and House Masters Roger Porter and his wife, Ann.— Michelle Jaylast_img read more

Governor Wolf Signs Executive Order to Raise Minimum Wage, Calls on Legislature to Raise Minimum Wage Statewide

first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Economy,  Government That Works,  Jobs That Pay,  Minimum Wage,  Press Release,  Results Harrisburg, PA – Today, as part of his “Jobs That Pay” initiative, Governor Tom Wolf signed an executive order that ensures employees under the governor’s jurisdiction will be paid no less than $10.15 an hour. The executive order also covers employees of organizations that negotiate state contracts or that lease property to the commonwealth. Those employees that perform direct services to the commonwealth or spend at least 20 percent of their working time on ancillary services related to the contract or lease will be paid a minimum of $10.15 an hour. This provision will take effect when contracts or leases are solicited or bilaterally modified on or after July 1, 2016. If the legislature acts to expand the raise to the entire state, revenue would be boosted by roughly $60 million annually, providing additional resources to fund critical programs across the commonwealth.“Since the beginning of my administration, I have made creating good paying jobs, increasing efficiency, and achieving cost savings in state government top priorities,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “An increase in the minimum wage will achieve efficiency and cost savings for state government, reduce state expenditures on income support programs, and give valued employees a well-deserved raise.”To view the executive order, click here.The inflation-adjusted hourly earnings of the bottom fifth of Pennsylvania workers are lower today than they were in 1979. The current minimum wage of $7.25 per hour has 18 percent less purchasing power than the minimum wage had in 1979. A full-time, year-round worker earning the current minimum wage earns less than the federal poverty threshold for a family of two. Studies have consistently shown that increases in the minimum wage have not reduced the employment of low-wage workers.“An increase in the minimum wage will lead to increases in employee morale, productivity, and quality of work and decreases in turnover and the cost of training and supervision,” said Governor Tom Wolf.In addition to signing the executive order, Governor Tom Wolf also called upon legislators to pass a minimum wage increase for all Pennsylvania workers.“I am calling on the Pennsylvania House and Senate to pass legislation that increases the minimum wage in Pennsylvania,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “A minimum wage increase to $10.15 per hour supports local businesses, creates new jobs, and would boost state revenue by roughly $60 million annually.”Charlie Crystle, Co-Founder and CEO of The Lancaster Food Company, said, “People who put in a full day of work should get a full day’s pay that at least covers basics like housing, food and transportation – but you can’t make ends meet on $7.25 an hour. Investing in staff reduces costly turnover and creates a more committed, productive, healthier workforce, which helps my business prosper. And raising the minimum wage puts money in the pockets of workers who most need to spend it, boosting local businesses and communities. I strongly support a statewide minimum wage increase to at least $10.15 an hour.  Paying at least that is good for everyone – employees, their families, our communities, and yes, our businesses.John Traynor, owner of the Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center, which includes The Kitchen & Gallery Bar, a 150-seat restaurant, said, “The Governor’s action is a vital step forward. I urge our legislators to now pass a minimum wage raise for all Pennsylvanians. It makes great business sense. Businesses throughout our state will see greater consumer demand as workers have more money to spend. Increasing the minimum wage will lead to greater employee retention, which reduces hiring and training costs, and increases productivity. I know from experience that building a brand with loyal employees is the most important thing for customer satisfaction and long-term growth.”The increase would benefit more than 1.2 million Pennsylvania workers, many of whom are adults with families.# # #Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf March 07, 2016center_img Governor Wolf Signs Executive Order to Raise Minimum Wage, Calls on Legislature to Raise Minimum Wage Statewidelast_img read more

EPL: Chelsea, Tottenham in top four crunch, Everton face Arsenal test

first_imgWith the league’s first winter break done and dusted, it is full steam ahead for the clubs fighting to secure the lucrative Champions League berths behind champions-elect Liverpool.Any London derby between Chelsea and Tottenham is a feisty occasion, but there is an extra spice to the rivals’ latest meeting as they are in direct competition for a European place.Fourth placed Chelsea are just one point ahead of fifth placed Tottenham and a victory for Jose Mourinho’s men would take them above his former club.Chelsea are reeling from a lacklustre 2-0 home defeat against Manchester United on Monday, but injury-hit Tottenham were beaten 1-0 by Leipzig in the Champions League last 16 first leg on Wednesday.Hampered by their continued failure to turn possession in tangible rewards, Chelsea have won one of their last six league games, and none of their last four, leading to reports Blues boss Frank Lampard might find his position under scrutiny if they don’t qualify for the Champions League.Lampard’s decision to drop Kepa Arrizabalaga for the last three games is said to have frustrated the Chelsea hierarchy, who made the Spaniard the world’s most expensive goalkeeper less than two years ago.It is the kind of delicate and potentially damaging issue Mourinho had plenty of experience negotiating during his two spells as Chelsea manager.There is respect between Mourinho and Lampard from their successful time together at Chelsea, but sympathy will be in short supply this weekend given what is at stake for both men.Tottenham have won their last three league games to close the gap on Chelsea, but injuries to Harry Kane and Son Heung-min have left Mourinho without a senior striker.– ‘Take responsibility’ –Lucas Moura, Steven Bergwijn and Dele Alli are Mourinho’s alternative options and Belgian defender Toby Alderweireld is convinced Tottenham can cope.“People have to take responsibility about that,” he said. “I think we have to solve this as a team.“We have people with different qualities upfront now. We have to keep the belief that people will step up for making goals.”Carlo Ancelotti has sparked Everton’s recent revival Loading… Read Also: Focus on Paderborn, not Chelsea – Flick warns Bayern MunichLiverpool’s staggering 22-point lead over City has turned the title race into a procession and Monday’s visit from struggling West Ham offers an ideal chance to bounce back from a 1-0 Champions League last 16 first leg defeat at Atletico Madrid.Jurgen Klopp’s team have dropped just two points all season and are on a run of 17 consecutive league wins.They need just five more wins from their remaining 12 games to take the title for the first time since 1990.Fixtures (1500 GMT unless stated)SaturdayBurnley v Bournemouth, Chelsea v Tottenham (1230 GMT), Crystal Palace v Newcastle, Leicester v Manchester City (1730 GMT), Sheffield United v Brighton, Southampton v Aston VillaSundayArsenal v Everton (1630 GMT), Manchester United v Watford (1400 GMT), Wolves v Norwich (1400 GMT)MondayLiverpool v West Ham (2000 GMT)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 All eyes will be on Stamford Bridge and the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League this weekend as the battle to qualify for next season’s Champions League heats up, while runaway leaders Liverpool can take another step towards the title.Advertisementcenter_img Arsenal and Everton, who meet in north London, are further behind in the race, but the possibility of Manchester City losing their appeal against a two-year Champions League ban means a fifth place finish could be enough to reach Europe’s elite club competition.Everton sit four points behind Tottenham after a five-game unbeaten run featuring successive wins over Watford and Crystal Palace.Carlo Ancelotti has masterminded Everton’s revival since taking over from the sacked Marco Silva, but he has yet to secure a statement win over one of the league’s bigger clubs.Beating Arsenal on their own turf would qualify as a significant moment for Ancelotti’s side, especially as the Gunners looked in good form in their 4-0 thrashing of Newcastle last weekend.Arsenal are unbeaten in their last six league games and lie two points adrift of Everton, with Manchester United, Sheffield United and Wolves also in the mix.Manchester City play their second game since the shock European ban when they travel to third placed Leicester, a game that will play second fiddle to next week’s Champions League tie against Real Madrid for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Lakers dash to rout of Wizards for 10th straight win

first_img[email protected] discusses the #Lakers offensive showcase against the Wizards with @Mike_Bresnahan and reflects on an impressive 14-1 November. pic.twitter.com/AD3g61ibwz— Spectrum SportsNet (@SpectrumSN) November 30, 2019 The Lakers debuted gold, Shaq-inspired jerseys, but it felt like a throwback in more ways than one. The last time the Lakers won 14 games in a month was in May of 2000, during the first of O’Neal’s three consecutive championship seasons with the franchise. Ten straight wins is the longest streak the Lakers have enjoyed since 2009.Coach Frank Vogel was proud to have achieved one of the better monthly marks in franchise history, even if it did come against a softer portion of the schedule. He challenged the Lakers pregame to not wait for a loss to find ways to improve.“To our guys’ credit, they handled that level of adversity and were able to overcome those games, and just keep getting Ws,” he said. “So I’m proud of what they were able to accomplish this month.”The massive specter of Davis’ New Orleans return dissipated on Wednesday night, leading into a relaxing holiday after a 4-0 trip. The more challenging portion of the Lakers’ season looms ahead, beginning Sunday afternoon against the Dallas Mavericks.The game against the Wizards landed squarely in the middle, drifting somewhere in the doldrums.This made for a predictably slow start – something the Lakers are familiar with. Rui Hachimura, Washington’s first-round draft pick, led out the gate with two quick baskets against Davis as his team shot out to a quick 9-0 lead. James was careless early, coughing up four turnovers in just four minutes.Out of a timeout, the veteran Lakers shot out to a 26-4 run to make a blowout of the game even in the opening frame. It’s the kind of turn the Lakers would like to make more consistently.“We had a couple of games teams are jumping on us, even at home,” Danny Green said. “We have been pacing ourselves pretty good and third quarter, we come out second half doing pretty well but we got to do it for four quarters, one period at a time.”Related Articles How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Frank Vogel talks about the #Lakers “staying the course” and executing the game plan in tonight’s 125-103 win. pic.twitter.com/ubJwIx1euG— Spectrum SportsNet (@SpectrumSN) November 30, 2019 Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions PreviousLos Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis, center, shoots as Washington Wizards forward Rui Hachimura, left, defends along with guard Troy Brown Jr. during the first half of an NBA basketball game Friday, Nov. 29, 2019, in Los Angeles.

(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)ExpandLOS ANGELES — A perennial holiday question: What do you get for the team that has it all?Even though the Lakers have been winning, there’s something they haven’t had much of lately: breathing room. Their previous five wins heading into Friday night had an average margin of 4.6 points, with three of those games decided in the final five seconds.There was no audible exhale as JaVale McGee knocked down a third-quarter free throw, giving the Lakers a 39-point lead over the Washington Wizards for their largest lead of the season. But there was a general air of relief that the Lakers, who have made a habit of close games against struggling teams, didn’t make anything too hard on themselves in a 125-103 victory on Friday night, their 10th in a row.It’s a test all championship-caliber teams face: Against a lesser opponent, they still have to play to their own standard. The Lakers aced this one. Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed The return of Moritz Wagner provided a mildly engaging subplot to the fourth quarter. A 2018 Lakers first-round draft pick traded away this summer to create additional salary cap space, Wagner was no competition for Davis during the meaningful portion of the game.But he played antagonist against Dwight Howard, who incidentally played briefly for the Wizards last year in an injury-shortened season. Wagner drew a technical foul from Howard, who flexed on him after laying down a massive dunk. On the ensuing play, Howard was called for a goaltend on Wagner, then the second-year forward got in position to draw a charge on Howard on the ensuing Lakers possession.Unfortunately, Wagner’s night as visiting heel ended in the locker room. He appeared to be injured after former teammate McGee landed on his ankle. Wagner finished with seven points, while fellow former Laker Isaac Bonga had six points in garbage time.The Lakers didn’t leave the game cleanly either: Kyle Kuzma sprained his left ankle late in the third quarter, and while he initially started playing through it, he went to the locker room early.

They scored at least 33 points in each of the first three quarters. Davis (26 points, 13 rebounds) woke the team up from an early lull, while LeBron James (23 points, 11 assists) helped conduct a blistering 20-2 third-quarter run to douse the Wizards for good.It was comfortable enough that the Lakers had the shortest stints of the season for both James (24 minutes) and Davis (27 minutes).Bench help stepped in. Quinn Cook (17 points) and Rajon Rondo (13 points) were the leading scorers among the reserves, who poured in 46 points. McGee, who started, finished with 15 points, 11 rebounds and two blocked shots in 21 minutes.A team with the NBA’s best record should hold lesser competition at arm’s length. For the Lakers, it was the most one-sided game they’ve played in two weeks to complete a 14-1 record in November.
