Chicago march demands end to ICE raids

first_imgHundreds of activists marched and rallied outside Chicago City Hall on June 15 to demand the mayor and city council amend Chicago’s Welcoming City Ordinance — which makes it a sanctuary city — to eliminate “carve-outs” allowing Immigration and Customs Enforcement to continue its abusive and devastating raids and deportations of immigrants and migrants. Speakers from organizations representing Latinx, Asian, Arab and African-American communities described the terror felt by the victims and their families of these raids and urged continuing street actions until the current ordinance is strengthened and ICE is banned from Chicago.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img

Odds & Ends: Lindsay Lohan Aims to Return to the Stage in Oleanna & More

first_img View Comments Full Cast Set for The Ruling Class, Starring James McAvoy We now know who will be joining the previously announced James McAvoy in The Ruling Class. Ron Cook (Mr Selfridge) will play Sir Charles Gurney, with Kathryn Drysdale (Suspects) as Grace Shelley, Joshua McGuire (Privacy) as Dinsdale Gurney and Anthony O’Donnell (Skyfall) as Daniel Tucker. Trafalgar Transformed’s revival of Peter Barnes’ satirical comedy will be directed by Jamie Lloyd and officially open in the West End on January 27, 2015. Here’s a quick roundup of stories you may have missed today and over the holiday weekend. Another Gigi in New York You wait your whole life (no really, that’s us) to see Gigi on stage and then two productions come along at once. A revival of Anita Loos’ Gigi, which opened on Broadway in 1951, launching the career of Audrey Hepburn, will run off-Broadway. The play will begin performances on January 12, 2015 at The Storm Theatre. This is not to be confused with the Great White Way-bound Gigi musical, which stars Vanessa Hudgens belting about the invention of champagne and urging us to say a prayer for her tonight. We’re looking forward to seeing both.center_img Lindsay Lohan Aims to Return to the Stage in Oleanna Lindsay Lohan has completed her London run in David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow, directed by Lindsay Posner. And guess what? Proving her detractors wrong, she got acceptable reviews and turned up to every show on time. So positive was the experience for all concerned that it would seem that the Mean Girls star is planning to headline Mamet’s Oleanna next year, also helmed by Posner. We’re impressed. A New Situation at My Big Gay Italian Funeral Frank Sorrentino (Jersey Shore’s The Situation’s big brother!) has been tapped for My Big Gay Italian Funeral off-Broadway. He will star opposite creator Anthony J. Wilkinson as his former gay lover Dominick Vitale. Currently being played by Addison LeMay, Sorrentino is set to step into the role beginning January 18, 2015.last_img read more

Equinor considers offshore wind to power oil rigs

first_imgEquinor considers offshore wind to power oil rigs FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:Norway’s Equinor said on Tuesday it is considering whether to build a pioneering offshore wind farm with floating turbines to supply electricity to two North Sea oilfields as part of a strategy to curb greenhouse gas emissions.The project at the Gullfaks and Snorre oilfields would cost around 5 billion Norwegian crowns ($592 million) and could reduce Norway’s emissions of carbon dioxide by more than 200,000 tonnes per year, Equinor said.“This could be the first time an offshore wind farm is directly connected to oil and gas platforms,” state-controlled Equinor said in a statement. The two fields currently are powered by generators running on natural gas at the platforms.Formerly known as Statoil, Equinor earlier this year changed its name to underscore a push into renewable energy under Chief Executive Eldar Saetre, although oil and gas will remain the company’s dominant business.The company’s first floating offshore wind farm began operating off Scotland last year, supplying electricity to the onshore market. Equinor has also announced plans for bottom-fixed offshore wind projects in the United States, Poland and Britain.A final investment decision on the plan for Snorre and Gullfaks, known as the Hywind Tampen floating wind farm, will be made in 2019, Equinor said. The company will seek to reduce the cost from the preliminary estimate.More: Equinor explores floating wind turbines to power North Sea oilfieldslast_img read more
