Here’s A Video Of A Man Happily Chugging Sriracha At Ultra 2018

first_imgOver the weekend, Ultra Music Festival in Miami celebrated its 20th anniversary. The festival celebrated the landmark year by surprising attendees with the reunion of house music supergroup Swedish House Mafia, the group’s first performance since their farewell show at the festival almost exactly five years prior.However, as pointed out by Your EDM, one ecstatic man was in (debatably) proper form for the occasion, as he was caught celebrating by triumphantly chugging Sriracha hot sauce straight out of the bottle on the festival’s webcast. Ultra has the tendency to bring out the worst (best?) in its attendees: This new viral video is the latest in a string of infamous clips of fans doing weird shit at the EDM fest, including the truly bizarre and somewhat disturbing (hilarious?) video of a girl making sweet, passionate love to a palm tree at the event in 2012. However, this young man at Ultra is not the first to drink sriracha at a bass event—I guess the trend is a thing (???), so here’s a video of a guy drinking sriracha at Excision last year.last_img read more

Where urban needs, Harvard solutions meet

first_imgState Sen. John Keenan used to get on a Red Line train in Quincy and ride into downtown Boston every morning, peacefully listening to music on his earphones and contemplating the day ahead on Beacon Hill.These days, Keenan sometimes rides a little farther, to Harvard Square, and spends his time studying signals and delays, wondering why the MBTA doesn’t collect information about where passengers end their trips.Credit Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) and its Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston for that. Keenan, just weeks into his mid-career master’s in public administration program at the School, is already gaining important insights into policy-making, including from transportation expert Jose Gomez-Ibanez, Bok Professor of Urban Planning and Public Policy, on how to use ridership behavior to study public transportation.A 2015 study found that former Rappaport fellows were 54 percent likelier to be working in the public sector several years after graduation than were runners-up who applied for but did not receive the fellowship. “As a legislator, I find that things are changing rapidly in pretty much every policy area, and a lot of it is turning on data” said Keenan, a Quincy Democrat who has leadership positions on Senate committees overseeing public finance and opioid addiction and treatment, and who takes a special interest in transportation, given the commuter-heavy nature of his district. “I thought it was time to improve and refine the tools that I have and find some new tools that would help me be more effective.”Keenan is a Rappaport/Boston Urban Scholar, a fellowship that allows area lawmakers and policymakers to study at HKS. It is one of the notable programs of the Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston, an initiative funded by the Phyllis and Jerome Lyle Rappaport Foundation.“The Rappaport Institute serves as an important bridge between Boston-area universities and Boston-area governments, exposing students to the exciting possibilities of public service, training current government leaders, and identifying policy questions that can be answered only through collaboration between top scholars and front-line government workers,” said Jeffrey Liebman, Malcolm Wiener Professor of Public Policy and director of the institute.Past Rappaport fellows include Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone, pictured speaking with Linda Bilmes, Moynihan Senior Lecturer in Public Policy. Photo by Martha StewartBesides the 49 urban scholars, who have included Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone, M.C./M.P.A. 2011, and House Ways and Means chair Jeffrey Sanchez, M.C./M.P.A. 2011, the institute has supported more than 215 summer internships for public policy graduate students to work in state or local agencies, and produced more than 85 publications and research projects, including groundbreaking work on education, public safety, and transportation. With the current sharpened awareness of the necessity of a well-functioning government, the Rappaports’ support and initiatives are all the more significant.Kanika Singh, M.P.P. 2018, recently was a Rappaport public policy summer fellow, working for the city of Boston’s Department of Innovation and Technology to study the governance and tech needs of refugees settling in the area.“I was attracted by the idea of local government particularly,” said Singh, who had worked on economic development in a public-private partnership in San Antonio. “It often felt like government had the potential to do a lot more but was constrained, and I wanted to understand that better.” A class on digital governance also piqued her interest in how “governments can act like helpful humans as opposed to bureaucracies.”Singh’s experience has left her with a desire to return to work in local government. Forming that pipeline of public policy students into public service is a key role of the fellowships. Indeed, a 2015 study found that former Rappaport fellows were 54 percent likelier to be working in the public sector several years after graduation than were runners-up who applied for but did not receive the fellowship. “It is remarkable that a two-month summer internship can have such a large impact on the future career paths of students,” Liebman said. “Public service really is addictive.’”The institute also plays an influential role in bringing in University experts to focus on policy questions specific to the Boston area. By playing matchmaker and helping fund the research, it connects the research needs of local and state government to scholars who can help meet them.Following the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, the institute co-sponsored a report analyzing the city’s response and resilience in the face of that tragedy. Harvard experts, including Herman “Dutch” Leonard, Baker Professor of Public Management, Arnold Howitt, adjunct lecturer and co-director of the Program on Crisis Leadership, and Philip Heyman, James Bar Ames Professor of Law Emeritus at Harvard Law School, examined the city’s strong response, packaged important lessons, and found ways to improve.In conjunction with Boston Public Schools, the institute recently issued a challenge to area academics to improve the system’s expensive and often inefficient bus service. The winners, a team from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, devised algorithms that minimized bus routes by reconfiguring stops, maximizing the number of students on each bus, and reducing the time buses were idle, saving millions of dollars.By helping connect Moynihan Senior Lecturer in Public Policy Linda Bilmes with nearby municipalities and public entities, the institute helped to bring new governance to the area, and to change the way the Kennedy School teaches.The institute was an early supporter of Bilmes’ experiential learning lab program, which sent her public finance students to work in Greater Boston, the MBTA, and dozens of local jurisdictions. The class developed a new model in which city officials partner with the School to provide opportunities for advanced budget and technical training. Bilmes has led student teams in more than 70 projects, involving everything from Harbor Island ferries to Hubway bikes. The lab has given valuable new budgeting and governing tools to local communities, served as a model for other experiential classes at the School, and prompted hundreds of students to choose a career in state and local government.“The Rappaport Institute was one of the key enablers for providing a meaningful long-term experiential learning program in which both the students and the local community reaped benefits,” said Bilmes.All these achievements flow from the generosity of the Rappaport family and Jerry Rappaport’s deep commitment to Harvard and the Boston area. From his role in the “New Boston” reform movement, which helped elect Mayor John Hynes in 1949 and transform city governance in the 1950s, to his role in transforming and modernizing the city through economic development in the 1960s, to his philanthropy, Rappaport has contributed to improving the governance of the Boston area in each of the past eight decades, Liebman said.For his part, Rappaport ’47, J.D. ’49, M.C./M.P.A. ’63, believes that the institute has helped transform the relationship between Harvard and state and local government.“What has come about from this interchange, which has now been vastly expanded, is a sense of mutual respect among city, state, and University,” Rappaport said. “It created a sense of community in the political leadership with Harvard, that they respect what Harvard has to offer. The value of the University not just to the world but to the local community has been immeasurable.”last_img read more

Heading to London This Fall? Here Are Five Hot New Shows to See!

first_imgSummer is slipping away, but that’s never a bad thing theatrically, especially in London where the fall brings with it an abundance of theater to make one drool. What follows are five shows scheduled between now and Christmas that look sure to set the pulse racing, listed in the order in which they are scheduled to open.NO MAN’S LANDWyndham’s TheatrePreviewing now, opens September 20In a year that will have seen several legendary British actresses return to the stage (Vanessa Redgrave in a now-finished Richard III, Glenda Jackson en route to King Lear), along come actor-knights Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen to reprise the 1975 Harold Pinter play that they performed to acclaim on Broadway in 2013. Their co-stars—new to the director Sean Mathias’s staging for London—are Tony winner Owen Teale and the fast-rising Irish actor, Damien Molony. To quote Pinter’s own play: “As it is?” “As it is, yes please.”THE RED BARN National TheatrePreviews begin October 6, opens October 17A psychological thriller set in 1969 Connecticut adapted by a leading English writer David Hare from a novel (La Main) by a legendary Frenchman Georges Simenon sounds like enticement alone. Add in an uber-hot director in 2016 Olivier Award winner Robert Icke and two striking leads in 2016 Tony nominee Mark Strong and visiting American star Hope Davis, and it sounds as if Broadway is surely beckoning—even though lucky London has got there first.AMADEUSNational TheatrePreviews begin October 16, opens October 26History of a sort is made when the wonderful Lucian Msamati, seen earlier this year in the National’s overwhelming revival of Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, becomes the first black actor to play the court composer Antonio Salieri in a major production of Peter Shaffer’s Tony-winning play. Adam Gillen takes the title role of Mozart in a Michael Longhurst-directed production that will undoubtedly pay tribute to Shaffer, who died in June at the age of 90.DREAMGIRLSSavoy TheatrePreviews begin November 20, opens December 14Amber Riley, best known as Mercedes Jones on Glee, crosses the pond to take on the powerhouse role of Effie White when the iconic 1981 Broadway musical has its long-overdue West End debut in November—not long after the first Effie, Jennifer Holliday, returns to Broadway in The Color Purple. Stepping into the formidable shoes of Dreamgirls’ pioneering director-choreographer Michael Bennett is none other than Casey Nicholaw, who has Aladdin and The Book of Mormon already running both sides of the Atlantic: looks, as Effie might put it, as if nothing’s gonna stop him now.SHE LOVES MEMenier Chocolate FactoryPreviews begin November 25, opens December 7That perpetual musical charmer from 1963—a hit yet again on Broadway this past season—returns to London, this time to the small but mighty Menier Chocolate Factory in a new production directed by Matthew White and starring the clarion-voiced Scarlett Strallen as the ice cream-loving Amalia. Are cartwheels in order? We shall soon find out.  View Commentslast_img read more

A rising Bloomberg qualifies for US Democratic debate

first_imgUnited States media tycoon Michael Bloomberg has qualified for Wednesday’s Democratic presidential debate, after two new polls shows him leapfrogging rivals, including Joe Biden, to claim second spot in the race for the party nomination.Bloomberg’s surge meant that he cleared a polling threshold set by the Democratic National Committee, placing the former New York mayor on stage to spar with fellow candidates, several of whom have launched broadsides against him, for the first time.With Bloomberg’s political stock rising, a spokesman said that the candidate would sell Bloomberg LP, the global news giant that bears his name and made him a billionaire, if his presidential campaign is successful. “There will be no confusion about any of his financial holdings blurring the line between public service and personal profiteering,” aide Timothy O’Brien told CNN in a clip released Tuesday.The businessman who jumped into the race in November, nearly a year after many rivals, earned 19 percent support nationally, second to leftist Bernie Sanders at 31 percent, in an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist survey.The moderate former vice president Biden came in third at 15 percent in the poll of some 1,400 registered voters, while progressive Senator Elizabeth Warren was at 12 percent and pragmatist Senator Amy Klobuchar at nine percent.A Reuters/Ipsos national poll out Tuesday also found Bloomberg in second spot with 17 percent support, behind Sanders at 25 percent. Biden was third while former South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg was running fourth. “Mike is looking forward to joining the other Democratic candidates on stage and making the case for why he’s the best candidate to defeat Donald Trump and unite the country,” the Bloomberg campaign said in a statement.”The opportunity to discuss his workable and achievable plans for the challenges facing this country is an important part of the campaign process.”The 78-year-old Bloomberg, seen as a centrist, has been rising in polling as he spends hundreds of millions of dollars of his vast personal fortune on campaign ads.In the RealClearPolitics national poll average he has climbed into third spot, behind Sanders and Biden.More evidence of his momentum: he is coming under frequent attack from rivals, including Trump himself.Sanders has repeatedly slammed Bloomberg for his attempt to “buy” his way into the presidential race, and by highlighting Bloomberg’s absence on the campaign trail in early-voting states.Others have aimed sharp criticism at Bloomberg’s past positions and comments that have been criticized as crude, racist or misogynistic.Wednesday’s debate will be held in Las Vegas, three days ahead of Nevada’s caucuses.Bloomberg is skipping the first four states to concentrate on so-called Super Tuesday on March 3, when 14 states vote on choosing a Democratic nominee.Bloomberg was a Democrat until he left the party in 2001.He served three terms as New York’s mayor, first as a Republican, then as an independent. He re-registered as a Democrat in 2018.Topics :last_img read more

One sole Russian region says ‘nyet’ to Putin, defying the Kremlin

first_imgDiscontent there has been brewing for some time and its rejection appeared to be a protest vote designed to signal anger over a local issue.Specifically, residents object to a plan put forward earlier this year by authorities to merge with neighboring region Arkhangelsk, a move they believe would leave them poorer by stripping them of special financial support.A memorandum outlining the plan was signed by the two regions’ governors on May 13. A September referendum on the issue has since been cancelled but locals remain wary.”Sign of protest” “People voted [against the constitutional reforms] as a sign of protest … They wanted to use this to get the attention of authorities in Moscow and to tell them that we live here too, that we have an opinion,” Tatyana Antipina, a local businesswoman, said by telephone.Antipina travelled to Moscow this week to deliver a petition to the Kremlin with over 15,000 signatures opposing the plan.Olga Bondareva, who voted no, said locals had been protesting the planned merger since May.”We held flash mobs every day, stood in solitary pickets, and on Saturdays we’d do protests driving in our cars, all so that our district authorities and deputies would hear us,” Bondareva said in a chat over social media.In Volonga, a village with 32 registered resident voters, located on the coast of the Arctic Ocean, 17 people took part in the referendum and all voted “no”.Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the region’s voters had the right to vote against but were “the absolute minority.”Topics : Only one of Russia’s 85 regions, a sparsely-populated patch of the Arctic known for reindeer herders, defied the Kremlin and voted against changes granting President Vladimir Putin the right to stay in power until 2036, results on Thursday showed.The former KGB officer, who has ruled Russia for more than two decades as president or prime minister, handily won the right to run for two more six-year terms after the current one ends in 2024.But in the remote Nenets Autonomous District, located 1,600 km northeast of Moscow, over 55% of 37,490 voters voted against the reforms, the only region to say “nyet”.last_img read more
