This was not LaBeouf’s first controversial brush with Broadway. The film star noisily exited the Great White Way revival of Orphans last year. Cabaret View Comments Related Shows Shia LaBeouf has pled guilty to disorderly conduct at his eventful night out at Broadway’s Cabaret in June, which resulted with him being led out of Studio 54 in handcuffs. According to TMZ, the judge has ordered the star to obey all laws for the next six months and complete a further three months of outpatient alcohol rehab.

New Roach

first_imgA new cockroach species from Turkey has been recorded for the first time in Georgia, according to University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences entomologist Dan Suiter.Suiter, a UGA Cooperative Extension specialist on the UGA campus in Griffin, Georgia, was alerted to the new cockroach by Howard Carter of Countryside Pest Control. Carter collected the cockroach in a trap while inspecting a site in Spalding County, Georgia, for pests.“About a year ago, Howard brought me a sticky card with a bunch of different cockroaches on it and wanted to know what this one was,” said Suiter, who specializes in home and structural pests. “I wasn’t sure, and neither was Orkin’s national technical director, who was on hand when Howard brought the sample in.”The experts thought that the cockroach was the native woods cockroach, the ones that typically are attracted to lights, Suiter said. “It looked like those, but then it didn’t,” he said. “We finally determined that it was the Turkestan cockroach, Blatta lateralis.”The male of this species is gold-colored and about an inch and a quarter in length. The female is wingless and cherry-colored with two white streaks where the wings would otherwise be.In 2017, Suiter sent a specimen of the cockroach to the UGA Museum of Natural History where Richard Hoebeke, an associate curator for arthropods at the museum, confirmed and documented the species.“The significance of finding this cockroach in Georgia is that it’s known to primarily be in the Southwestern United States,” Suiter said. “It’s invasive and it’s been found in the U.S., but it’s never been documented in Georgia until now.”The Turkestan cockroach may be new to Georgians, but across the Southwest U.S., it is well established. “People in the Southwest view this species of cockroach the way Southerners view the Palmetto bug,” he said. “They hate it.”This year, Suiter equipped Carter with 10 cockroach traps to determine whether the Turkestan cockroach was still in the area.Carter and his 11-year-old grandson, Bryce Sammons, set the traps and waited.“I think he’s a future entomologist. He really enjoyed setting the traps, and he’s been taking bugs he finds to Dan for a few years,” Carter said.Two days after placing the traps, Carter returned to Suiter with 50 Turkestan cockroaches. Suiter sent 20 specimens to the UGA museum, where they will be cataloged and entered into the museum’s collection.“By now they are probably in other locations and they just haven’t been reported,” he said. “And, to an untrained eye, they just look like any other cockroach.”So, what’s the difference between the Turkestan cockroach and other cockroaches Georgians are accustomed to seeing scurry across the kitchen floor? Not much, Suiter said.“They have a similar biology as an American or smokybrown cockroach. American cockroaches, Periplaneta americana, are from Africa and the smokybrown cockroach, Periplaneta fuliginosa, is from Japan,” he said. “None of these cockroach pests are native to the U.S., including the German cockroach, Blattella germanica (the one found in kitchens), which is from Southeast Asia.”Having been in the pest control business since 1986, Carter says the key to controlling pests is to have a watchful eye and keep your home or office clutter-free.“You should really pay attention to what you see in your home,” he said. “Don’t create problems. If you have clutter, you are going to have problems with insects and rodents; it’s a given.”When it comes to controlling cockroaches, no matter what their country of origin, Suiter refers people to UGA Extension Bulletin 1412, “Management of Pest Insects in and Around the Home.” This publication can be found at extension.uga.edu/publications. For a more extensive pest control manual, Suiter recommends UGA Extension Special Bulletin 48, the home and garden edition of the Georgia Pest Management Handbook.Visit the UGA Structural Pest Management program website for more information.last_img read more

Correa Returns to Colombia Following Restoration of Relations

first_imgBy Dialogo December 17, 2010 I am surprised by the help from the Ecuadorans but very grateful. It is a great help to our victims may God truly bless the Ecuadoran people and both governments so that may continue on the right and good path that will give peace and tranquility to us Colombians and to the whole world. May God bless them. Chao. On 15 December, Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa, his ambassador-designate Raúl Vallejo, and Foreign Minister Ricardo Patiño made their first visit to Colombia following the restoration of relations, broken off in 2008 due to a Colombian military operation on Ecuadorean territory. The visit, which focused on the delivery of aid for victims of the rains in Colombia, provided the occasion for both presidents to declare their readiness to approve the respective ambassadors. “The names have already been officially presented. In diplomatic protocol, approval has to be given. We don’t see any problem, at least on the Ecuadorean side,” Correa said in the area of La Victoria, near Cali (in southwestern Colombia), where he personally delivered the aid packets. Two weeks ago, the Colombian government nominated Fernando Arboleda, a former justice of the Supreme Court of Justice, as its ambassador to Ecuador. Santos affirmed that on his return to Bogotá, he would grant approval to the designated Ecuadorean ambassador, Raúl Vallejo, a former education minister. “Then things will be completely normalized,” he said. Correa arrived in Cali, where he met Santos, in the morning. Together, the two presidents flew over La Victoria and then spoke with its inhabitants. Wearing jeans and an orange vest, Correa declared, “We only want to make ourselves present and give a fraternal embrace to the Colombian people. We’ve brought some supplies, and we’ll send more subsequently. It’s a small amount of aid, despite our efforts, for the magnitude of what’s happened.” The rains in Colombia have left nearly 280 dead and have affected two million people so far this year, according to the latest official figures. In La Victoria, Correa delivered seven tons of humanitarian aid. “Count on your Ecuadorean brothers, without doubting for an instant. We have a shared past, a present that very much unites us, and it’s now time to look for a future together,” he insisted. Santos responded by thanking “the Ecuadorean people” once again for the aid. “We’re reestablishing relations the way things should be, because we are brother peoples,” he added. The aid brought by Correa goes beyond the humanitarian framework of solidarity and represents his administration’s first direct diplomatic gesture toward Colombia subsequent to the bilateral tensions. This is Correa’s second visit to Colombia since the rupture of relations. On 7 August, when bilateral ties had been restored at the chargé d’affaires level, the Ecuadorean president attended Santos’s inauguration in Bogotá. Correa and Santos fully reestablished relations on 26 November, on the sidelines of the meeting of the Union of South American Nations (Unasur) in Georgetown. Ecuador broke off ties with Colombia as a consequence of the 1 March 2008 Colombian military operation against a base of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), a Marxist guerrilla group, on Ecuadorean soil, in which twenty-five people died, including rebel leader Raúl Reyes. Ties were reestablished at the chargé d’affaires level in November 2009.last_img read more

Online master’s available

first_imgStarting fall 2011, USC master of communication and public administration degrees will be offered online  to meet an increased demand from students.Students enrolled in the online program will have access to the same faculty who teach on campus and will develop online virtual communities while still partaking in the Trojan Family, said Jack Knott, dean of the School of Policy Planning and Development.“The online program offers the opportunity to provide a quality, state-of-the-art education to the 21st-century students,” Knott said. “[The program] fits students’ learning style through the Internet and social networking and it fits students’ lifestyle of juggling careers, family and education.”Founded in 1995, Embanet has provided USC with the program to offer online courses. It has been one of the pioneering companies in offering online services to students, said Paul Gleason, senior vice president of Educational Operations at Embanet.For Embanet, offering online courses is vital to those students who want to pursue graduate education but don’t have the means of doing so in a classroom.“Each course is specifically built to deliver learning in interactive ways to achieve curriculum learning outcomes. Ultimately, our greatest accomplishment is bringing high quality to students and institutions together,” Gleason said.For the master of public administration, acceptance into the program is extremely competitive with an expected enrollment of 85 students in the first year, Knott said. Within the next four years, the goal is for 200 new students to be enrolled in the program.“It is important that we enter the market early and establish our presence,” Knott said.For USC, Embanet will provide program and course conversion, marketing and enrollment services, online faculty training, student services and technology development and support.“It accommodates students who cannot come to USC’s campus in person, who need a more flexible schedule for professional or personal reasons,” said Ernest J. Wilson, dean of the Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism, in an e-mail.USC began exploring the advancement and opportunities of online learning within the past couple of years, Gleason said.Knott said there has been a demand for these online courses, and a survey revealed that alumni have strong interest and support for an online degree.To begin the stages of building this online education program, Embanet must work closely with the faculty to create a pseudo-campus learning environment while also building up a strong student assembly.Some students feel that being able to get a master’s degree online will benefit those struggling to juggle career and work, while others are more skeptical.Stevee Eads, a sophomore majoring in public relations, said online  learning will be detrimental to the success of the student and their academic endeavors.“I don’t think this is a good idea because students need one-on-one interactions. You don’t get the full understanding or experience unless you are learning first hand,” Eads said.While not totally opposed to it, Tim Baumann, a sophomore majoring in business administration, is skeptical of whether the quality of work that goes into earning a master’s degree will be up to the same standards as in previous years because of the attitude some students have toward online classes.“I wonder if employers and other academic instructions are going to feel the same skeptical feelings and whether or not that is going to make USC look less like the prestigious academic institution it is and more like the other run-of-the-mill online universities that serve a different function than I believe USC does,” Baumann said.On the other hand, some students said they feel this type of learning is inevitable because of how strong the Internet has become.“It’s a good idea because the Internet and education are continuing to intertwine. More classes and books are being offered online. If you can get a degree by not leaving your home, it will be much easier, especially if commuting is tough,” said Alex Matros, a sophomore majoring in business administration and cinematic arts.Whether the students are in favor of it or not, the online opportunity to earn a master’s degree will be launched in the fall 2011.“I am hoping that students will use the skills and knowledge they receive in our first-rate MPA degree to make a significant contribution to their community, the country or internationally,” Knott said.last_img read more

Five former Badgers competing for Lombardi Trophy

first_imgAlthough just two teams remain this NFL season, there are still a number of faces that are familiar to those who watch the University of Wisconsin football team. In fact, five former Badgers will be either playing or coaching in Super Bowl XLVIII for the Seattle Seahawks or Denver Broncos. Between them, they have five Rose Bowl appearances, but each of them will try to hoist the Lombardi Trophy with their respective teams Sunday at MetLife Stadium.Russell WilsonTeam: Seattle Seahawks, Position: Quarterback, Experience: 2 yearsSince foregoing a career in major league baseball, transferring to UW from North Carolina State and leading the Badgers to the Rose Bowl in 2012 in his only season with the program, Russell Wilson has taken the NFL by storm.Measuring in at just 5-foot-11, many NFL scouts had doubts about Wilson’s ability to succeed at the professional level. The Seattle Seahawks, however, saw his athletic ability and composure as reason enough to draft him with the 75th overall pick in the third round of the 2012 draft to compete with former Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Matt Flynn.After beating out Flynn in the preseason, Wilson took a stranglehold on the Seahawks offense, putting together a rookie season that would earn him a third place in the voting for offensive rookie of the year behind only Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck.Now in his second season as the signal caller in Seattle, Wilson has played well enough to put him in the conversation of league MVP, throwing for 3,357 yards and 26 touchdowns and doing so without some of his best receiving threats because Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice were out of the lineup for most of the season.Montee BallTeam: Denver Broncos, Position: Running back, Experience: RookieAfter deciding to wait on the NFL and return to Madison for his senior season with Wisconsin, Montee Ball put up numbers that have never been seen in college football. Ball broke the NCAA record for most touchdowns in a career with 83 during his four years at Wisconsin while going to three straight Rose Bowls with the Badgers.The Denver Broncos selected Ball with the 58th-overall pick in the second round, but fumbling and pass protection issues kept the former Badger from seeing consistent time on the field during the first half of the season. In the latter half of his rookie campaign, Ball began to assume the role of a complementary back to starting tailback Knowshon Moreno, getting some third down and goal line opportunities.With his limited touches Ball was able to rack up 559 yards and four touchdowns while averaging 4.7 yards per rush.After going to three-straight Rose Bowls to end his career at Wisconsin, Ball goes to the Super Bowl in his first year in the NFL, admitting “a lot of players in the locker room tell me I’m spoiled” at the Super Bowl media day.O’Brien SchofieldTeam: Seattle Seahawks, Position: Linebacker, Experience: 4 yearsPlaying defensive end for Wisconsin from 2006 to 2009, O’Brien Schofield made his presence known on the defensive side of the ball, totaling 33 tackles for a loss and 17 sacks. During his senior season in 2009, Schofield ranked second in the nation in tackles for a loss with 24.5 to go with 12 sacks, which earned him a spot on the first All-Big Ten Team.The Arizona Cardinals drafted the South Carolina native in the fourth round with the 130th pick and converted him to outside linebacker. After playing three seasons in Arizona, Schofield was released by the Cardinals in 2013 and claimed off of waivers by the Seahawks.In Seattle, Schofield seldom sees the field in a talent-loaded defense that has been coined the “legion of boom.” In his time on the field this season the former Badger picked up seven tackles and a sack.Chris MaragosTeam: Seattle Seahawks, Position: Safety, Experience: 4 yearsChris Maragos has been an unheralded player since he left high school—walking on to Western Michigan and then transferring to Wisconsin, where he would switch sides of the ball and play safety. Although Maragos led the Badgers with four interceptions his senior season in 2009 and received honorable mention All-Big Ten, the Racine Native went undrafted in the 2010 NFL draft.Maragos was picked up by the San Francisco 49ers but was cut after just one year with the team which opened the door for the 5-foot-10 converted safety from Wisconsin to join Seattle in 2011.Time on the field isn’t easy to come by for Maragos, who plays behind Seattle’s 3-time all-pro free safety Earl Thomas, but in the playing time he has had Maragos grabbed 12 tackles, including one in the NFC championship game against the 49ers this post season.Darrell BevellTeam: Seattle Seahawks, Position: Offensive coordinator, Experience: 14 years as NFL assistant coachAs the starting quarterback for Wisconsin in 1993, Darrell Bevell led the Badgers to a 10-1-1 record and a spot in the 1994 Rose Bowl, where they beat UCLA 21-16 on a 21-yard run by Bevell, which put the game out of reach and secured Wisconsin’s first Rose Bowl win.As coach in the NFL, Bevell has made stops in Green Bay and Minnesota before landing in Seattle as head coach Pete Carroll’s offense coordinator in 2011. Now in his third season manning the Seahawks’ offense Bevell has the team ranked 8th in the NFL in points per game and 4th in rushing yards this season.last_img read more
