Tony and Broadway.com Audience Choice Award winner Idina Menzel will headline select stops on the If/Then national tour. The Frozen star will reprise her Tony-nominated performance as Elizabeth (Liz/Beth) for the Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Tempe and Costa Mesa stops. Additional casting for the tour will be announced at a later date. The tour will kick off on October 13 at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.“If/Then is especially meaningful for me because I had the opportunity to develop it for several years with the creative team, whom I have come to consider family,” said Menzel, in a statement. “I’m so thrilled to launch the show’s national tour and to send it off across the country and around the world. I am very much looking forward to sharing this original musical with Broadway fans who weren’t able to travel to New York and see it there.”Menzel made her Broadway debut in Rent and has since appeared in Aida and Wicked, for which she won a Tony Award. Her screen credits include Rent, Enchanted, Glee and, of course, Frozen. Her latest album Holiday Wishes debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Holiday Albums chart last year, and she is set to embark on a world tour this summer.Directed by Michael Greif, If/Then features music by Tom Kitt, with book and lyrics by Brian Yorkey. The writers earned the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize for penning Next to Normal. If/Then earned Tony Award nominations for Best Original Score and Best Actress (Menzel). The musical tells the story of Elizabeth, a woman on the verge of turning 40 who returns to New York City to make a fresh start. If/Then premiered at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C. in November 2013.“I am thrilled that Idina will be playing these select cities, in the time-honored touring tradition established by Broadway’s leading stars like Angela Lansbury, Yul Brynner and Ethel Merman,” said producer David Stone, in a statement. “I look forward to having audiences discover and embrace if/Then and to give Broadway fans across the country the unique opportunity to see a genuine superstar at the height of her powers, in a role that was literally tailored for her.”Can’t wait to see If/Then in your city?

Share Tweetcenter_img LocalNews ECIB hosts credit analysis and management workshop in Dominica by: – July 9, 2012 Share Resident Representative of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank Agency Office, Edmund Robinson (centre) with CEO of the National Cooperative Credit Union Limited, Aylmer Irish (right). A four day credit analysis and management workshop organized by the Eastern Caribbean Institute of Bankers (ECIB) got on the way at the Public Service Union on Monday.According to resident representative of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank Agency Office, Edmund Robinson, the workshop is intended to provide banking and credit officers with the “rudiments” of the “theory and practice” of sound lending along with “techniques” to manage delinquent accounts.Robinson said the workshop comes at a “critical” juncture when persons are still “struggling” with the effects of the financial crisis which began in 2008. The workshop will cover topics like “consumer lending” and participants will also learn how to detect “problem” loans early and identify appropriate solutions. However, Robinson said, while the workshop will address financial institutions and the personal development of its staff, there has been a concerted effort to “enhance the financial literacy” of the public.For the past ten years the monetary council of the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank has declared the month of October as financial information month and during this year’s observation, emphasis will be placed on “managing credit, record keeping, risk management and protecting ones asset and best business practices”.Workshop participants“Financial education impacts the wellbeing of every individual as well as the economic and social fabric of our communities.” Robinson said.Meantime Chief Executive Officer of the National Cooperative Credit Union Limited Aylmer Irish highlighted the necessity for financial institutions to understand the loan and collections processes.“A significant amount of a financial institution’s revenue comes from the granting of loans and therefore it is absolutely necessary that there is a comprehensive understanding of the underwriting process, and the collections process must be timely and effective, but it is even more important to understand the importance of risk analysis because the objective must be to minimize risk such as credit risk”.The workshop is facilitated by Patrick Thomas and Louis Parris and will come to close on Thursday.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Robot Legs Can’t Keep Up With Animals

first_imgRobot designers are envious of animals.  Insects, crabs and lizards leave them in the dust.  Alison Abbott in Nature (Jan 18) described the latest attempts to get the bugs out of insect-imitating “biological robots.”1  “Programming a robot to think like an insect is tough,” the subtitle reads, “but it could help breed machines as manoeuvrable as flies.”  Which animals are robot designers looking at?Flies:   Abbott described a German robot named Tarry II with six legs that creaks with every step.  Building legs, though, is the easy part.  The legs need to be programmed to work.  Tarry II’s designer is envious of the software in a fly: “Although our encounters with flies often leave an impression of aimless and irritating meandering,’ Abbott writes, “these tiny creatures’ decisions are just as purposeful as those of other animals.  A fly scans its environment with eyes and antennae, processes this information in its brain and then makes a decision, perhaps to turn away from potential danger or hurry towards food.”    Much of the information processing in an insect occurs outside the brain.  Circuits of nerves in the fly’s nerve chord direct some of the movements.  This can be seen when a fly is decapitated and a neurotransmitter is applied onto the chord: “then it will start to walk around like – well, like a headless chicken.”  A headless fly can even be stimulated to groom eyes that are no longer there.  This kind of distributed processing has not escaped the notice of robot designers.  “These basic movement programmes are well studied and have been transferred to robots” like the predecessor to Tarry II, which “has been walking with the confident coordination of a decapitated stick insect for more than a decade.”  The “cleverer stuff” like decision making and coordinated movement, of course, requires a brain.  Designers are also observing how insects use stereo vision and parallax to sight their targets, and how they vary step size and walking rate to achieve optimum energy efficiency.Cockroaches:  “If only the Mars rovers had been more like cockroaches, sigh insect biologists, they might have been able to extricate themselves from the sand dunes and rocks on which they have occasionally come a cropper and had to be carefully steered to safety by their human controllers,” Abbott writes.  Roland Strauss, builder of Tarry II, said, “We are very happy if what we learn from nature can be put to use to make better robots.”  Cockroach brains are about 50 times bigger than fly brains.  Using “brain damage” experiments, designers learn how the cockroach software works to encounter obstacles.  It’s a challenge to detect an obstacle, decide whether it needs to be avoided, and decide which way to turn.    “Insect biologists are eager to model ever more intricate types of insect behaviour in their robots, such as walking uphill or climbing,” Abbott writes.  “….But until these robots can be programmed with more sophisticated and autonomous software – precisely the directions that biologists are extracting from insect’s brains – they cannot pass for true robotic insects.”  Autonomous control is a highly-sought-after skill being watched by NASA, the European Space Agency and other groups into robotics.  That’s why they are watching these experimental labs with great interest.  “Just a few of an insect’s effortless navigational skills would be a boon for many of today’s applied robots, which can negotiate obstacles only via human intervention and remote control.”  Abbott envisioned insect lookalikes someday navigating the moon or “confidently striding” the canyons of Mars.    On Earth, too, we can all benefit from these studies.  The military will be able to perform safer surveillance.  Victims of natural disasters might some day be met by friendly search-and-rescue robots with a marked resemblance to spiders or cockroaches.Crab Legs:  When robots have mastered insect navigation, they might be ready for the big time.  It’s hard enough to walk on a hard surface.  Sand provides a new challenge: the foot slips with every step.  The ghost crab, however, is king of the sand hill.  Elisabeth Pennisi writes in Science (Jan 19),2 “With legs that are a blur to the naked eye, Ocypode quadrata scoots up to 2 meters per second on hard-packed sand” – the Olympic champion of sand locomotion, at least when it is firm. Leapin’ Lizards:  “But soften up the sand a bit,” Pennisi continues, “and the gold medal instead goes to the zebra-tailed lizard, an animal that spends little time on the grainy material.”  It clocked 1.5 meters per second on soft sand that slows the ghost crab to a gecko-like crawl.    Daniel Goldman and a team from the Georgia Institute of Technology built an artificial sand track to learn from the abilities of animals having to negotiate a variety of surfaces in the wild: mud, gravel, sand, and debris-covered surfaces.  The zebra-tailed lizard has long, gangly toes that spread out when hitting the sand and curl up with lifting the foot.  Robot designers want to invent machines that can navigate all kinds of surfaces.  That’s why they study the animal experts for clues.Lest you envy the foot feats of lowly insects and crabs and lizards, you have some pretty remarkable legs yourself.  Lucy Odling-Smee in Nature (Jan 19) discussed a mathematical model developed by Herman Pontzer (Washington State U of St. Louis) that measures an animal’s leg length, body weight and other physical factors to determine the efficiency of walking and running.  Although Odling-Smee and Pontzer both assumed humans developed long legs by an evolutionary history, they agreed the proportions in the modern human transportation system are good at saving energy.1Alison Abbott, “Biological robotics: Working out the bugs,” Nature 445, 250-253 (18 January 2007) | doi:10.1038/445250a.2Elisabeth Pennisi, “Crab’s Downfall Reveals a Hole in Biomechanics Studies,” Science, 19 January 2007: Vol. 315. no. 5810, p. 325, DOI: 10.1126/science.315.5810.325.Evolution has nothing to do with it; these stories are about design through and through.  We can observe design, we can study it, and we can imitate it.  When we do, science progresses and leads to wonderful inventions that improve our lives and extend our reach.    Go to the ant, thou sluggard evolutionist; consider her ways, and be wise.  When you’ve learned those ways, go to the fly, the cockroach, the crab, the lizard, and all the other examples of optimized hardware and software in the living world.  Catch up to the design-theoretic scientists who are way ahead of you.(Visited 13 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

SA scientist a Forbes ‘power woman’

first_imgA hybrid scientist Mthunzi’s interest in the field developed when she joined the CSIR’s Laser Centre in 2004, as a biochemist. “I didn’t even know what a laser was,” she recalls. “I was encouraged to do a PhD in laser physics, and I found the field very exciting.” She’s always had an interest in various branches of science such as medicine, physics and natural sciences and even zoology. “I see science in everything.” With biophotonics, she can experiment in all these areas, but Mthunzi says the country needs researchers who are experienced in multiple disciplines. “If I only knew biology, I would be limited in what I can do and come up with,” she says. “Some people call me a hybrid because my undergraduate qualification and my Master’s are in biology, followed by a PhD in physics, but I see myself as just a scientist.” Her peers in laser research are mostly physicists and from that perspective her biology background is somewhat unusual. “But it has equipped me perfectly for the job,” she says.Growing biophotonics and science in SA Mthunzi set up a fully functioning biophotonics laboratory at the CSIR and the facility is closely integrated with nearby optical laboratories on the council’s campus in Pretoria. The laboratories are within walking distance of each other, which makes research work much easier. She says South Africa needs more scientists and she enjoys promoting the field. She belongs to the South African Young Academy of Science, an organisation that contributes towards the development of scientific capacity and awareness in South Africa and promotes science at all levels of education. What she would like to see is a greater interest in biophotonics in the country. Mthunzi hopes that in the future biophotonics will become an established discipline locally and be taught as a degree. She says young people also need mentors to inspire them because that’s what helped her achieve her goals. “What helped me as a child is being surrounded by good mentors,” she says. “My aunt was my mentor. She was such a guru. I wanted to be just like her.” The aunt was a teacher and the first person in her family to obtain a Master’s degree.Other South Africans on the list Two other South African women, both prominent figures in the media industry, were also recognised by Forbes Magazine. Yolanda Sangweni is a senior editor at ESSENCE.com, one of the leading publications for black women in the US. She is also the co-founder of AfriPOP!, an online magazine that focuses on contemporary African youth culture, music, fashion and film from an Afropolitan perspective. Journalist, broadcaster and author Redi Tlhabi is the producer of a documentary on the former South African president Thabo Mbeki. She is also a columnist for the Sunday Times newspaper and author of Endings and Beginnings: A Story of Healing, a book based on her childhood experiences. Tlhabi is the host of a new talk show on Al Jazeera English television channel that will focus on politics, culture, music, health and science. First published by MediaClubSouthAfrica.com – get free high-resolution photos and professional feature articles from Brand South Africa’s media service. 11 January 2013 South African scientist Dr Patience Mthunzi has been named on Forbes Magazine’s 2012 list of the 20 “Youngest Power Women in Africa” – women under the age of 45 who are bringing about positive change on the continent through their influence on business, technology, science, policy or the media. Mthunzi, a scientist at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), was recognised for her pioneering work in the area of biophotonics, a field of science that enables microscopic study of biological molecules, cells and tissue using laser. Mthunzi is one of only three South Africans to be listed in the magazine – the other two are both prominent figures in the media industry. She heard about the listing late in December, and says that making it onto the prestigious list was completely unexpected. “I feel so honoured and humbled for being one of the three South Africans to have made it onto this list,” she says.International reputation, accolades Mthunzi is fast gaining an international reputation for her work, and she says although she doesn’t work for accolades, the recognition inspires and motivates her to do more. In April last year, she was honoured by President Jacob Zuma with the Order of Mapungubwe in Bronze, one of the country’s highest national awards, for her local and international contribution in biophotonics. This order is awarded to South African citizens for excellence and exceptional achievement. She is South Africa’s only senior scientist for the biophotonics research group within the CSIR National Laser Centre, and she is also the first biophotonics PhD graduate in South Africa. As she was unable to study biophotonics at a local university, Mthunzi became the first South African PhD student at the School of Physics and Astronomy of the University of St Andrews in Scotland.Developing innovative testing devices Biophotonics is an emerging area of science in South Africa. Mthunzi explains that it is a versatile, multi-disciplinary field that can be applied to find solutions for challenges in areas such as medicine, agriculture, environmental and life sciences. Research conducted under the umbrella of biophotonics involves disciplines such as physics, biology, medicine and engineering. Part of Mthunzi’s job description is to come up with novel ideas, and that is what she loves most about her work. She’s leading a project to determine possible medical applications using laser technology. “The field has applications for any disease,” she says. She is developing an HIV testing device that makes use of lasers to test blood samples. The device will be particularly useful in remote areas of the country and could change the way HIV testing is done. “Often people in rural areas have to walk long distances to clinics to get tested,” she says. “By the time they get there, it is too late to draw blood and send it with a courier to be tested at a laboratory elsewhere.” Mthunzi explains that the testing tool would be based on site at a clinic. She would like to design the device in such a way that it doesn’t require a medical professional to operate it. “It will be possible to get results immediately and will be easy to use, even by volunteer staff who receive some training,” she says. She is also working on introducing DNA and genes into stem cells and finding applications for lasers in the treatment of cancer. “Our cancer research is looking into ways to separate cancerous and non-cancerous cells.”last_img read more

Silicon Valley, Meet Innovation From Great Rift Valley

first_img steve hamm Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Tags:#Africa Related Posts 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Across Africa, an innovation culture is starting to emerge. In Kenya, PesaPal piggybacks on the popular M-PESA mobile payments service, enabling Kenyans to buy and sell on the Internet. Tanzania’s Techno Brain is selling software for managing businesses in 13 countries. And South Africa’s Cobi Interactive, a mobile communications software company, is developing popular applications for smart phones.Yet for Africa to fulfill its potential and emerge among the world’s economic tigers, social and business leaders agree that much more innovation must happen there. The continent’s cities, universities, entrepreneurs and commercial R&D organizations can become engines of innovation producing new products and services that are tailored for the African experience. And, in order to make this transition, African institutions and businesses–plus multinational corporations –must work together to create innovation ecosystems that foster this kind of creativity.At IBM’s Smarter Planet Leadership Forum today in Nairobi, Kenya, CEO Ginni Rometty said IBM hopes to work collaboratively with the people and institutions in Africa: “We want to be seen as a citizen of the countries, essential to the government, companies and people.” Rometty said IBM’s decision to locate an IBM Research laboratory on the continent–beginning with an office in Nairobi–sends the strong signal about the company’s commitment to Africa. The message is clear: Rometty wants IBM to play an active role in building innovation ecosystems in Africa.Taking Silicon Valley On The RoadCalifornia’s Silicon Valley is the prototype innovation ecosystem. It benefitted from the combination of good universities, entrepreneurial companies, government incentives and robust supplies of venture capital. Many of other places have tried to copy Silicon Valley’s formula—some quite successfully, among them Bangalore, India, and Singapore.Kenya is among the countries in Africa that have the potential of creating a vibrant innovation ecosystem. Students and entrepreneurs dream of tapping science and technology to solve social and business problems. Universities aim to expand their research and teaching programs in science, math and technology. Business leaders are creating startup incubators to encourage entrepreneurship—places like iHub, FabLab Nairobi and NaiLab.The government is playing a vital role, too, by making bold moves aimed at establishing Kenya as an information technology hub for East Africa. The government recently broke ground for Konzo Techno City, a new municipality being built from scratch south of Nairobi to bring research universities, corporations and government agencies together to support job creation, research collaboration and economic development. Another key move was the launch by the Kenya ICT Board of an incubation program for high-tech startups—including seed capital funding. “If we can build the skills and innovate, it will change the entire continent,” said Bitange Ndemo, permanent secretary of Kenya’s ministry of information and science.Private Interests Play Key RoleBut there’s an important role for foreign companies and academic institutions to play, as well—as partners with African institutions in making progress. IBM Research’s new research laboratory in Nairobi is the first basic scientific research lab to be established in Africa by a foreign multinational firm. We have allied with Catholic University of Eastern Africa to locate the lab on its Nairobi campus.The goal of the lab is to produce innovations within Africa and also bring in great ideas from IBM’s other 11 research labs around the world. “We want to create technology solutions optimized for Africa that can be exported to the rest of the developing world,” John Kelly, senior vice president and director of IBM Research said earlier this week.While the first lab office is in Nairobi, IBM plans on expanding elsewhere around the continent and also performing collaborative research with a number of universities. Already, the company is engaging with the University of Nairobi and Strathmore University in collaborative programs where scientists from IBM will work with university faculty members on projects of mutual interest.In another sign that Kenya is beginning to offer an attractive academic environment, Columbia University, one of the leading academic institutions in the United States, has set up Columbia Global Centre/Africa as a venue for research aimed at helping African nations reach their UN Millennium Development Goals.We believe that foreign firms and institutions won’t succeed if they try to build islands of expertise. They must work with local universities on collaborative research and to improve the quality of degree programs. Sure, if this happens it will mean that IBM Research will have to compete vigorously to recruit and retain the most skilled and ambitious young people. But so be it. “This is a long term investment,” said Kelly. “We’re here to help build the skills and, hopefully, we’ll get our fair share of the most talented graduates.”Article and video courtesy of A Smarter Planet.
