A celebrated American composer, Brown has been hailed as “one of Broadway’s smartest and most sophisticated songwriters since Stephen Sondheim” (Philadelphia Inquirer). He is known best as the award-winning composer and lyricist of the musical The Last 5 Years, and the Tony-award winning composer of Parade.As an artist-in-residence at Harvard, Brown will participate in Professor Carol Oja’s seminar, “American Musical Theater,” as well as give master classes and workshops for Harvard students though the Office for the Arts Learning From Performers program. In addition, Brown’s music will be showcased in a concert/cabaret performance at the American Repertory Theater’s Oberon theater on March 31, 2014.The New York Times refers to Brown as “a leading member of a new generation of composers who embody high hopes for the American musical.” The Last 5 Years was cited as one of Time Magazine’s 10 Best of 2001 and won Drama Desk Awards for Best Music and Best Lyrics, and has been adapted for the screen by Brown and director Richard LaGravenese. Brown won a 1999 Tony Award for his score to Parade, a musical written with Alfred Uhry and directed by Harold Prince, which subsequently won both the Drama Desk and New York Drama Critics’ Circle Awards for Best New Musical.

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享S&P Global Market Intelligence ($):A municipal ban on handling and storing coal at the proposed Oakland Bulk and Oversized Terminal does not violate the Commerce Clause and should be upheld, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said.Becerra filed an amicus brief Dec. 8 on behalf of the city of Oakland, which is being sued by the terminal developer. Oakland Bulk and Oversized Terminal’s, or OBOT’s, lawsuit claims the ban violates the Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution as well as federal laws that grant the power to regulate rail transportation to federal agencies, not state or local governments.The Oakland City Council voted unanimously in June 2016 to prohibit coal at the terminal, a multicommodity port planned for the site of the former Oakland Army Base in California, citing potential health and environmental risks.“The ordinance is a proper exercise of Oakland’s police powers and is not pre-empted by federal law or barred by the Constitution,” Becerra wrote. “It is the city’s response to the plight of its residents who will be subject to significant additional pollution from coal and who are currently already unfairly burdened by industrial pollution.”Becerra argued that the ban does not violate the Commerce Clause because it applies only to Oakland, not to other jurisdictions; it does not discriminate against outside interests in favor of competing local interests; and it does not unduly burden interstate commerce. Addressing the terminal’s claim that the ban improperly usurps federal authority, he wrote that since OBOT is not a rail carrier, it does not fall under the jurisdiction of the Surface Transportation Board and can be regulated by state and local governments.More ($): Calif. attorney general says Oakland coal ban is constitutional California attorney general backs Oakland’s efforts to block coal export terminallast_img read more


first_img 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Last March, I composed a post called A Loan By Any Other Name. The thesis was that as long as your members embraced your services, who cared what they called them? You could be, “that car pay thing”. As long as the auto loan was paid each month, specifics didn’t matter. I’ve decided to revisit the topic after learning more about partnerships and the co-op environment. Whereas in that discussion, I addressed product names, here we will look at the name use of the entire institution.What’s in a name? I suppose about the same as a motto. What’s the motto? Nothing, what’s a motto with you? (I can’t resist my Disney references)Nearly all of our partner credit unions have undergone a name change at some point in their history. Sometimes, it is to reflect a new affinity group or open charter. Other times, it is to clarify their mission to the membership and community. Most are good, some, fantastic. Is there an inherent benefit to a stylized name over “Such and Such Community Credit Union”? Depends on market coverage, size, and other factors better for your board to address than me. continue reading »last_img read more
