Mario Lopez And Komen Chicago To Celebrate 20th Anniversary At Ignite The

first_imgSusan G. Komen Chicago will hold its Ignite the Fight Gala presented by Wintrust on Saturday, Oct. 21, at the Westin River North, celebrating 20 years of funding global research and providing critical breast health services for the underserved in the Chicago area.Komen Chicago will hold its Ignite the Fight Gala presented by Wintrust on Oct. 21The anniversary celebration will feature Mario Lopez, Emmy-winning host of “Extra,” as the Celebrity More than Pink Ambassador, as well as 20 More Than Pink Heroes, who will be honored for their exceptional compassion, bravery and leadership in the fight against breast cancer.The Gala will kick off with the Dearborn Street and Clark Street bridges over the Chicago River being illuminated in pink. The lighting ceremony, led by Ed Wehmer, president and CEO of Wintrust, will celebrate extraordinary people who have “bridged the gap,” by fighting to even the playing field for those who lack resources.More than 1,000 people in the Chicago area die from breast cancer each year, and there is a large disparity in the city, with the mortality rate of African-American women being 40 percent higher than Caucasian women, according to Komen Chicago executive director Bonnie Gordon. Many of those deaths could have been prevented, with an earlier diagnosis and optimal care. Komen Chicago has distributed $17.4 million in community grants over the past 20 years, to ensure the underserved throughout the Chicago area get the care they need.The bridge lighting takes place at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner, awards and dancing. Pink ties and pink cocktail attire encouraged. Tickets are now on sale at www.komenchicago.org/gala.“All of us have been touched by cancer. Wintrust is excited to help give everyone a fighting chance for survival as we partner with Komen Chicago’s incredible 20th anniversary celebration,” Wehmer says. “We’re honored that so many inspirational people are lending their voices and sharing their stories to help Komen Chicago achieve the goal of providing Quality Care for All in Chicago.”In addition to Lopez, an appearance client of Esterman.com, special guests and More Than Pink Heroes include Nancy Brinker, founder of Susan G. Komen, and Illinois Senate President John Cullerton. Other Heroes include those who have faced the disease or lost loved ones, volunteers and caregivers. Gala co-chairs are the mother/daughter team of Marcy and Katie Twardak.last_img read more

From the Real Housewives to Killing Eve the 10 best TV series

first_img Facebook Pose is a visual, musical and poetic feast of personality. One of Ryan Murphy’s many television offspring, it tells the tale of the New York City drag scene in the late ’80s. The AIDS epidemic lingers as we watch the poor and the privileged intersect behind closed doors with a genuine, un-exploitative eye. Pose also happens to feature the largest LBGTQ ensemble ever gathered for a scripted series, with Mj Rodriguez, Dominique Jackson and Indya Moore, all trans women of colour, leading the way. Each episode packs an emotional punch.9.A VERY ENGLISH SCANDALForget Mary Poppins. The greatest English comeback of the year has been Hugh Grant’s. First, with the great Paddington 2. And here, where he plays the two-faced Jeremy Thorpe, a British MP who, in 1979, was accused of conspiring to murder his former lover, Norman Scott (a similarly two-faced Ben Whishaw), when homosexuality was still illegal. The witty, melodramatic three-episode miniseries follows what transpired after Scott threatened to expose Thorpe post-break-up. The entire affair is a promising sign of where Grant’s resuscitated career could take him, transforming his once indelible rom-commy charm into something much scarier. Advertisement There have never been more options on television. It’s worth keeping this in mind while reading from the end-of-year bemoaning that this year’s crop of series has been a sorry display. Truth be told: there’s simply too much to make a call. Any concept of “catching up” was left behind in 2017. From animation to drama to even procedural, the options are limitless as cable and streaming networks continue to duke it out in not only the battle for the best but the most.While that certainly leaves a lot of space for a lot of trash (of which we saw plenty this year), there have also been dozens of gems. Here’s a smattering of the best:HONOURABLE MENTION: BARRY (CRAVE)It’s long been said that the greatest comic talents have the deepest reserves of drama. In Barry, Bill Hader plays a depressed assassin who follows his latest target into an acting class, suddenly propelling him into dreams of a new life as a (very bad) actor. That is, if the mob who hired him lets him go. It’s a delicious new era for Hader, who captures a man seemingly devoid of emotion, so desensitized to the crime around him.10.POSE (FX CANADA) Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment last_img read more

Holding up the mirror

first_imgI write today to discuss Down To Earth’s 28th anniversary — our dream dare that we can use our pen, our research and information, to make a difference in our world. Down To Earth is not a magazine to make money — then or now. It was, and is, not a produce of commerce; or a product of the market. It was and will remain our means to bring you information about the world around us, about everyday life and of life itself, so that we have the knowledge, which gives us power to make change. Our mission is not hidden in reams of corporate gloss. It is open. It is our dare. Also Read – A special kind of bondThe question, I want to discuss with you is my understanding of our relevance in today’s India; in today’s world. It is a cynic’s world today, where we are seeing as never before the race to the bottom. Countries are showing us their worst sides; leaders are turning into venomous creatures out to polarise people. Real issues are getting lost in the dust and fifth of this virulent discourse, where everybody — all of us — seem “free” only to the extent that we can spill out our vile guts in the now not-so-open social media. There is no societal decorum that puts lines around what can be said in public and what not. Also Read – Insider threat managementSo, have we failed? Should we continue hoping against hope that we can make a difference to public opinion? Can we really keep the focus on the real issues that matter? I believe we must. I also believe that whatever we are seeing in our world today, it is our duty, our job — if you want to call it that — to keep pushing the envelope so that this whimper of real news becomes a scream.I say this particularly as India is in the middle of the Lok Sabha elections. In this 28th anniversary year of Down To Earth, we will get a new government, or we will get the old government as new. Whatever the future, the fact is that we must be there to report on issues that concern our today and tomorrow. In this election, we have seen that the real issues that matter to people — climate change that is driving weird weather to destroy crops; insurance companies that do not provide relief to farmers to cope with this distress; produce that is not getting value to pay for labour of farmers; pollution that is destroying livelihoods and health; and worse, the drought that is crippling large parts of the country — are all out of the frame. Nothing real seems to get our attention anymore. These are not eyeball issues. Social media misses these trends. Politicians today want us to believe that they can afford to forget local issues — issues that matter to their constituents — and still win elections. Elections then are about poisoned words and polarised politics. But I believe — and I hope you will as well — that these issues that I have enumerated will not go away. They cannot be swallowed up or spit out. They are real. They matter. It is our job to bring this news out and to keep working till this news that has been shuttered to the margins, becomes the main. It must. Because it matters to you and to me. It matters to our future. No government likes to be shown a mirror to its failures; no government wants to hear the inconvenient news that its spin doctors want us to believe. But it will remain our job to hold that mirror. And we will do this with all our ability to tell it from the ground; tell it as it happens; tell it truthfully. We do not need courage to do this. We need to make sure that we do not slip and lose your trust. Our mission is to make a difference; our shield is our independence. We will not let you down. I promise. We promise.

Analysis The tale of two Ohio State football teams

Urban Meyer prepares to lead the Buckeyes onto the field prior the start of the game against Michigan on Nov. 24. Ohio State won 62-39. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorThere was one question left in the minds of many following Ohio State’s 62-39 win against Michigan.Where has this Ohio State team been all season? In a season that has seen the Buckeyes ranked as high as No. 2 and as low as No. 10, where they stayed for four straight weeks, most of the year has been underwhelming.But then “The Game” happened, and now the Buckeyes are potentially one big win away from sneaking into the College Football Playoff.So where has this team been?Head coach Urban Meyer has taken a similar view throughout most of the season, saying more than once that his team is nowhere close to where it needs to be on the way to an 11-1 record and a chance at the Big Ten title.But 11-1 isn’t the whole story. There have been games that made Ohio State look like it should have been kicked out of the top 25, as well as moments of hope that the Buckeyes could compete for a national title.Ohio State players walk up the field after a Boilermaker touchdown in the second half of the game against Purdue on Oct. 20. Ohio State lost 49-20. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorThe bad Ohio State teamPurdueMarylandNebraskaThese are the bad times.In this trio of games, all against opponents with six wins or fewer, Ohio State looked uneven, underprepared and unlikely to improve.The defense has been the biggest lapse, allowing an average of 43.7 points per game, 12 plays of 30 yards or more and at least 450 yards of total offense in the three worst games of its season.Most of the time that the defense has struggled, it has been against a player on the offense who was expected to play well. Purdue freshman wide receiver Rondale Moore ran rampant against Ohio State for 170 yards and two touchdowns on 12 catches, which was plenty to take down the then-undefeated Buckeyes.Maryland redshirt freshman Anthony McFarland ran for 298 yards and scored twice in the 52-51 overtime loss.McFarland was one of many Terrapin running backs, so sure, he specifically wasn’t expected to play that well. But Ohio State failed to adapt its defense at all to the run-dominant Maryland offense, and it nearly gave the Buckeyes its second loss of the season.The defense has been a question mark, even in some of the better games Ohio State has played. But on offense, especially in lackluster play against Purdue and Nebraska, the pass and run games could not find a way to work together.The loss to the Boilermakers was the second straight game the Buckeyes failed to run for 100 yards. In the following matchup against the Cornhuskers, redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins completed 56.3 percent of his passes, his lowest percentage of the season.These “bad” games all felt like Ohio State was playing down to its opponents while emphasizing the glaring issues that the team has on defense when it is exploited.Ohio State junior linebacker Malik Harrison (39) and redshirt junior defensive lineman Dre’mont Jones (86) celebrate after Jones recovered a fumble in the end zone for a touchdown in the fourth quarter of the game against Michigan State on Nov. 10. Ohio State won 26-6. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorThe good Ohio State teamMichiganRutgersThe final eight minutes against Penn StateUnlike the bad, Ohio State’s good side has not come out very often.The Buckeyes have played a complete game of football twice this season, once against 1-11 Rutgers and the other against the No. 1 defense in the country in Michigan.In both instances, the Ohio State defense played at a high level. Maybe not at the level of the top defenses in the country, but certainly enough to let Haskins run the offense without worry.Ryan Day, either as acting head coach or as offensive coordinator, has made his dent in these games with smart play-calling to exploit the weaknesses in the defenses. Against Michigan, crossing routes took advantage of the man defense, and in the final moments to beat Penn State, Haskins used screen routes to drive 96 yards in fewer than three minutes.The weaknesses against Rutgers were, well, everything, but the Scarlet Knights have played other teams close, including losses by less than one score to Northwestern and Michigan State, as well as a 13-point defeat to the Nittany Lions.Ohio State left no doubt in the 52-3 thrashing of the Scarlet Knights but left plenty in the 27-26 win against Penn State. For 52 minutes, the Buckeyes showed more weaknesses than strengths but brought it together for eight impressive minutes to overcome a 12-point deficit and stay undefeated.But when looking at the competition and overall game play, Ohio State had one game to show what it is capable of doing, and that was against Michigan.The offense showed ability both in the air and on the ground, and the defense brought the most pressure it has since junior defensive end Nick Bosa left with an injury against TCU. The linebacker play was dramatically improved, and, while 39 points is high, over half came in the fourth quarter with the game already in hand.Which Ohio State team will show up against Northwestern?Momentum would say the good one. The Michigan victory was the best Ohio State has looked all season, and the matchup against the Wildcats is of equal importance if the Buckeyes hope to make the playoff.But Northwestern’s ability to make games close could force Ohio State back into its negative tendencies, and it should not be overlooked how much the Buckeyes prepared for the Michigan matchup.Specifically, defensive coordinator Greg Schiano said 364 days of preparation go into that game.Ohio State might have moved on from being the team that lost to Purdue by 29 and took five-win Maryland to overtime. But the Buckeyes might also not be the same team that beat the Wolverines come time for the Big Ten Championship.As has been the case for every game this year, the Ohio State team that shows up on Saturday will be a toss-up. But the Buckeyes are trending up at the right time, and if they can repeat their game from this past week, they have a legitimate chance of making the playoff for the third time in program history. read more
