first_img Aladdin View Comments from $57.50 Related Shows Age: 30Hometown: Seattle, WACurrent Role: A Broadway debut as Jafar’s wisecracking right-hand man Iago in the hit musical adaptation of Disney’s Aladdin.Stage Cred: Before originating the role of Iago at the 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle, Rivera appeared in a variety of productions at the Seattle Children’s Theatre, The Children’s Theatre Company and the Shakespeare Theatre Company.“My secret dream was to be a professional stage magician. I had two white doves growing up, and people were always shocked to see this tiny little Filipino kid pull a dove out of a tissue box.”“Children are the most honest audience you will ever have, because they will let you know if they like you and they will let you know if they don’t like you. Kids are always surprised that I’m not really a mean guy in person.”“I’m Filipino-American—my parents moved from the Philippines to Seattle in 1974. Lea Salonga is a huge star there, so seeing her in mainstream American entertainment, in Aladdin, was a huge deal for me. It was so nerve-wracking to get to meet her…and we’re about the same height, so that’s cool, too!”“My wife Kate and I met at the Seattle Children’s Theatre, doing If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. She was a stagehand and I developed a huge crush on her, but I wanted to stay professional, so I didn’t tell her. Finally I said, screw it, let’s go on a date. We ended up getting married on that same stage.”“Moving to New York was difficult, because I’ve never really lived anywhere but Seattle. I showed up with a piece of luggage at an apartment I’d never seen before except in pictures. At first I was like, ‘Oh my God, I made a terrible mistake,’ but I learned about takeout and dollar slices and life was good.”“Sometimes I look around and think, wow, I’m so lucky to be here. People work so hard for their entire lives to be on Broadway. This is the big time, this is the pinnacle. I’m really living the dream.”“I proposed to my wife at Disneyland. We’re both huge Disney fans, and it was one of our first dates. I wanted to propose during the fireworks show, but it was a torrential downpour and they canceled it. So I proposed in front of the castle in the pouring rain. It was a perfect Seattle engagement!” Star Files Don Darryl Riveralast_img read more

first_imgDuke Energy takes $1.6 billion charge to account for cancelled Atlantic Coast gas pipeline project FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:U.S. energy company Duke Energy Corp said Monday it took a $1.6-billion after-tax charge in the second quarter for the cancellation of the Atlantic Coast natural gas pipeline from West Virginia to North Carolina.Atlantic Coast was the most expensive U.S. gas pipeline under construction when Duke and partner Dominion Energy Inc exited the $8-billion project in July due to regulatory uncertainty following years of delays and billions of dollars of cost overruns.Dominion already took a $2.8 billion charge related to the cancellation.Atlantic Coast is just one of several U.S. oil and gas pipelines mired in legal and regulatory battles with local and environmental groups that have found problems with U.S. permits issued by Trump administration agencies.When Dominion, which led the Atlantic Coast project, started work on the 600-mile (966-km) pipe in the spring of 2018, the company estimated it would cost $6.0-$6.5 billion and be completed in late 2019.In addition to regulatory delays, Atlantic Coast was also hurt by a short-term hit to gas demand from coronavirus and a longer-term hit from growing consumer interest in cleaner energy.[Scott DiSavino]More: Duke takes $1.6 billion charge to exit Atlantic Coast nat gas pipelast_img read more

first_imgState Secretary Pratikno has downplayed the possibility of a Cabinet reshuffle, saying that President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo’s recent fiery rebuke of his ministers had achieved the required results.”The Cabinet responded to the warning quickly,” Pratikno said on Monday. “If there’s good progress, why should there be a reshuffle?”In a video of a closed-door Cabinet meeting on June 18 released by the President’s press office, Jokowi delivered an uncharacteristically angry speech, saying that he would consider taking “extraordinary steps”, including a Cabinet reshuffle, if his ministers did not effectively deal with the pandemic and its economic impact. The President particularly cited the lack of spending in the health sector and called on all ministries to cut through red tape and accelerate their spending in order to stimulate the economy.Pratikno said the ministries had responded to Jokowi’s warning quickly, which could be seen from the increased budget disbursement and the progress of several government programs.   “Now [the situation has] improved and hopefully it will continue to improve. If so, a reshuffle will be unnecessary,” he said. “So, don’t make a fuss about a reshuffle anymore because the Cabinet is working well. We should focus on public health problems and economic problems as a result of the pandemic.”This is not the first time Jokowi has used the threat of a reshuffle to spur his Cabinet into action. In February, during a private meeting with social media celebrities and influencers, the President said that he would replace Cabinet ministers who failed to adapt and deliver results.Topics :last_img read more

first_imgDanny Willett believes Rory McIlroy has been handed a potentially vital advantage in the battle to end the season as European number one. The ankle injury which forced McIlroy to sit out three tournaments this summer, including the defence of his Open title at St Andrews, means he will not play the 13 events usually required to remain in the Race to Dubai, where he leads Willett by just 1,613 points. However, European Tour chief executive Keith Pelley cited ”exceptional circumstances” in granting McIlroy permission to remain on the money list by playing 12 events as he tries to win the Harry Vardon Trophy for the third time in four years. McIlroy is therefore eligible for a share of the five million US dollars bonus pool and his presence also affects the top 30 on the money list on November 15 who qualify for next year’s Open, the top 60 who make this week’s season-ending DP World Tour C hampionship and the 110 players who kept their card for next season. Willett, who would also be entitled to significant bonuses from his sponsors if he won the Race to Dubai, believes Pelley made the “right decision,” but feels a rested McIlroy has the upper hand at Jumeirah Golf Estates. “O bviously playing a lower amount of events than what’s required was one of the main benefits I would have said for Rory with how things panned out,” said Willett, who has played 22 events to McIlroy’s 11 and described himself as “stale” during last week’s BMW Masters, which McIlroy did not play. “I appreciate that him playing makes a massive difference for the Tour and you have to kind of let him off with the events, but certainly he has more of an advantage over the guys who have played all three (in the Final Series) and this will be the fourth. “There’s a lot of travelling, a lot of golf, time changes, sleeping patterns; everything like that can really take its toll, especially at the end of a season. I think having had a week off might have benefited him. “If Rory wins more money than anyone else playing less events, then that’s just good golf. There’s still rules there to kind of abide by, otherwise they wouldn’t make rules. If rules were allowed to be broken all the time, then there’s no point in setting them in the first place. “But in that case it’s a very difficult one to get correct and it was the first decision Keith had to make in becoming the chief executive of the Tour. I think he made the correct decision. “I can’t really say a great deal more. It doesn’t really change how we are going to approach this week so we’re just going to go out there and try and win.” McIlroy told Press Association Sport in October that he had to take a “selfish view” of his exemption and stressed on Tuesday that he was not concerned about the prize money or his share of the bonus pool. “I’d gladly take the trophy and they can keep the money and do whatever they want with it,” McIlroy said. “It’s more about trying to win The Race to Dubai again. I t’s always a goal of mine. At the start of the year, I want to be at the top of these lists at the end of the season, whether it’s the Race to Dubai or whether it’s the FedEx Cup. “The Race to Dubai reflects the way you’ve played through the entire season, and somehow that’s true. I feel like I’ve gained most of my points in the first half of the season with my performances. “I’ve just sort of held onto that position a little bit. Coming into this week and not having wrapped it up like I had done the previous two times I’ve won, there is more intensity. It would be a really great way to finish the season, and knowing that I haven’t already got it wrapped up, it focuses the mind and I really want to play well this week.” A total of seven players can still win the Race to Dubai, although Justin Rose, Shane Lowry, Louis Oosthuizen and Branden Grace need to finish second or better at Jumeirah Golf Estates, while Byeong Hun An has to win. And they will all have to get the better of course-specialist McIlroy, who has recorded five top-five finishes in six appearances, including a victory in 2012 which sealed his first Race to Dubai title and finishing second behind Henrik Stenson last year.
