Excuses to miss work
Glad tidings from the arts front. Playwright Harrison David Rivers has won the 2018 Relentless Award for “The Bandaged Place,” a play he developed at the Playwrights Center in Minneapolis, where Rivers is a core member. It was first presented there in April in two staged readings as part of the Ruth Easton New Play Series. Rivers has described it as “the play I said I would never write.” It’s a disturbing and powerful work about an abusive relationship between two gay men, drawn from Rivers’ own life. Given by the American Playwriting Foundation, the Relentless Award was established “in honor of Philip Seymour Hoffman and his pursuit of truth in the theater.” The $45,000 award is the largest annual cash prize in American theater given to a playwright in recognition of a new play. The prize also includes a weeklong residency at an artists’ colony in New York, the option to have the play published by the Dramatists Play Service, and a … [Read more...] about Playwright Harrison David Rivers wins national award; MN Orchestra and Dessa to do live recording

Anyway, the opportunity to get bitten by a ground hornbill presented itself to me a few weeks ago, so who was I to miss out?

My impression is that the bird just wasn't able to exert enough force to, say, crush a large beetle or snail shell, let alone break the bones of a vertebrate prey animal. But, then, that isn't what these birds do anyway: they grab things with their bill tips, squeeze them, and shake them and/or beat them against objects or surfaces before they go limp enough to be thrown to the throat and swallowed (Burton 1984, Baussart … [Read more...] about What does it feel like to get bitten by a ground hornbill, I hear you ask?

This mindset is only an excuse to stay in debt. As you make excuses for your debt, you only give lenders more power over your life, which limits what … [Read more...] about Start today: How to prepare for an economic collapse

The striker has scored two in three appearances since his arrival from Boston United last month, although his goal against Buxton on Tuesday was a mere consolation at the Linnet made a disappointing 2-1 home exit from the FA trophy.It means the Linnets’ interest in the two major knockout competitions is over, leaving the focus on climbing from 15th in the Southern Leaguer Central Premier Division table – a full 12 points behind leaders Kettering.Marriott believes the top half is a more than reasonable target for Lynn.“You have got to work hard and keep nicking results,” he said. “We want to get as many wins as possible – we are in a bit of a difficult situation in the … [Read more...] about Marriott: It’s time for Linnets to kick on after shaky start to campaign
