Sad news out of Chula Vista, as a man who was arrested at Wednesday night’s Dead & Company show at Sleep Train Amphitheatre passed away while in police custody, as was first reported by the San Diego Union-Tribune. The heavy-set man in his 50’s was caught moving from seat to seat before the show started, which eventually led to him being confronted by security who asked to see his ticket. The man was apparently very intoxicated, according to security, and tried to run away, which led to a brief struggle before police arrived at the scene.When police did arrive, they found the man in question yelling incoherently and acting irrationally. The officers arrested him for public intoxication, which led to the man starting to struggle again. Police first took him to the medic tent, where he was evaluated and discharged with no major injuries, and he was then taken by police to be processed for the arrest.While the man was in processing, he apparently fell asleep sitting upright in a chair. An officer went to check on him, and found that he was suddenly unconscious. After several attempts to revive him, the man was pronounced dead. His death is currently under investigation.Our thoughts and prayers go out to this man’s friends and family.

View Comments Happy Friday, and welcome to a post-The Wiz Live! society. It’s been a wild week, from live telecasts to Jedi founding fathers and punk rock longshoremen. As always, we’re here to wind down with a roundup of the craziest stories from the past seven days. Put Mary J. on pause for one minute; it’s time for Lessons of the Week!Wiz Casual Is the New Biz CasualSo we wanted to meet the Wizard, and on December 3, we finally did. And this time, the Wiz was a Queen (no, not Lesli Margherita). While Queen Latifah served us drag king realness in her first scene of The Wiz Live!, she shocked us even further with her next look: a bathrobe. Pair that with David Alan Grier’s Lion slippers and you’ve got the perfect watch-from-home ensemble!Lin-Manuel Uses the ForceDoes he have a time turner? Has he cloned himself? We don’t have answers; all we know is Mr. Miranda deserves a break that he probably wouldn’t take anyway. There’s Hamilton. He’s writing for Disney. He and Vanessa Nadal are raising a toddler. Now, he’s composing a new cantina song with J.J. Abrams for Star Wars. So yes, Lin-Manuel’s playing everywhere, including a galaxy far, far away.Fantine Needs Her Hand CreamThere was a time when men were kind, and Fantine’s hands were soft. While preparing for her show, Les Miserables star Montego Glover revealed that even though she’s playing a defeated, down on her luck factory worker-turned-prostitute, hand cream is an absolute must at all times. She goes through all that and still keeps her beauty products?! They must be worth a centime, my dear.Les Miz Will Run for 1×276 Days MoreLes Miz (and, in turn, Fantine’s super soft hands) have set a date to bid us adieu. The revival will wave the flag of freedom high for the last time on September 4, 2016. So if you’re mourning the loss, just think of how much you can do in nine months! If you get a super short haircut, you can grow it out! You can build a 24,601-foot barricade! You can walk from Montreuil-sur-Mer to Paris and back 80 times!Mark Strong Could’ve Been a Punk LawyerBefore Olivier winner Mark Strong was starring on Broadway and hanging out with Arthur Miler at the von Trapp mansion (that really did happen), he was a total punk. The View From the Bridge star revealed that acting wasn’t always his goal; he started in a punk rock band and went on to law school. If he ever wanted to return to his roots, “Eddie and the Longshoremen” wouldn’t be the worst band name.Waitress’ Pie Is Filled With InclusivenessWhat’s sweeter than pie? An all-female, all kick-ass creative team for the Broadway-bound Waitress musical. Director Diane Paulus and writers Sara Bareilles and Jessie Nelson have ordered up some choreography from Broadway alum Lorin Latarro, marking the first all-female creative team in Broadway history. Throw in Tony-winning star Jessie Mueller and you have a recipe for a pie that packs a punch.Fiyero’s Been Blending Through LifeFiyero is one fine, scandalacious Winkie prince, and you can even drink him in smoothie form! According to Jonah Platt, a Fiyero smoothie would consist of, among other things, passion fruit and protein powder. Wait, why aren’t there Wicked smoothies available at the Gershwin Theatre? We would totally drink a kale-infused smoothie if it had “Elphaba” in the title. OK, maybe.Wayne Brady Will Give You a PiggybackWayne Brady’s rocking some serious footwear on stage in Kinky Boots, and he’s learning that in order to fully understand being a diva, you have to walk, strut and dance a mile in her shoes. Now that he’s entered the Land of Lola, Brady’s much more sympathetic to those who wear high heels. He’ll even give you a piggyback ride if you need it! But if you’re wearing kinky flats, you can walk.Anthony Ramos Is a Sucker for Boy BandsAnthony Ramos may rap and croon R&B on stage in Hamilton, but when he’s not in the spotlight, it’s entirely possible to catch him listening to the Backstreet Boys or *NSYNC. The Broadway newcomer revealed that his pop culture guilty pleasure is any and all boy bands. That’s not a bad thing, Anthony. We can totally see you strung up like marionettes with Lin, Leslie and Daveed.Ali Stroker Is Ready for Her CloseupSpring Awakening’s Ali Stroker is making history as the first Broadway actor in a wheelchair, so she might be offended after seeing Kylie Jenner fetishizing her disability in a controversial photo shoot. Instead, she’s excited to highlight the bridge between sexuality and disability. She even wants to recreate the shoot herself. If you need a photographer, Ali, Melchior and Wendla have our info.

The Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) announced that close to 6,000 volunteers donated approximately 245,500 hours by the end of the federal fiscal year on September 30, 2013.Since the ATC began reporting volunteer hours in 1983, volunteers have devoted 4.9 million hours to the A.T., and there has been a 33 percent increase in volunteer hours over the past 10 years. In 2013, volunteers helped maintain the A.T. corridor, monitor and remove invasive species, and support teachers in the Trail to Every Classroom (TTEC) program.“The Appalachian Trail Conservancy exists because of the generosity, talents and support of our volunteers – they are the very soul of the Appalachian Trail,” said Ron Tipton, executive director of the ATC. “The record number of volunteer hours reported for fiscal year 2013 illustrates a continued dedication to the preservation and management of the Trail.”E-BIKES AT NORTH AMERICAN HANDMADE BICYCLE SHOWThe North American Handmade Bicycle Show, held from March 14-16 in Charlotte, North Carolina, is the world’s largest and most influential custom bike show, holding a reputation for creativity and innovation. This year, Gates Carbon Drive, maker of the leading belt drive system for bicycles and eBikes, plans to display the first-ever “Custom eBike Showcase” featuring a dozen original electric bicycles.Partnering with leading electric bike system companies Bosch, SRAM, and BionX, as well as hub maker NuVinci, Gates enlisted some of America’s finest custom builders to create the belt drive eBikes for the show.“Electric bikes can get more people out of cars and onto two wheels, and we want to expose more Americans to this efficient, affordable, and healthy transportation solution,” said Todd Sellden, global director of Gates Carbon Drive.The market for eBikes is growing as well. Sales have doubled annually in Europe and the United States for the past several years.Giant Snowball Gets Out of ControlAfter 12 inches of snow dumped on Reed College in Portland, Oregon, one student attempted to make the world’s biggest snowball. By the end of the day on February 8th, the snowball was three feet in diameter and weighed approximately 800 to 900 pounds.As surrounding students chanted “Roll it!,” two math students sent the snowball barreling down a hill where it proceeded to crash into a dormitory wall.Maintenance workers spent 45 minutes cutting through the snowball to discover that wall was ripped off its studs. Damage repairs are estimated between $2,000 and $3,000. No word as to whether or not the students kept playing in the snow.
By Dialogo August 09, 2011 Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos ordered on 7 August, 2011, a review of strategy in the fight against leftist guerrillas and emerging criminal gangs, amid criticism sparked by an increase in insecurity and in actions by these illegal armed groups. “I have ordered the Defense Ministry to conduct a review of the territorial control paradigm, including the control of our borders, in order to make more efficient and more effective use of our forces,” the president said at an event marking the anniversary of the National Army. President Santos affirmed that in response to the offensive conducted by the military, members of the FARC are trying to make themselves invisible by dressing in civilian clothes in order to cause unease with small operations that have a large impact. He added that this is a survival strategy, a desperate effort to maintain a presence in the media and in public opinion. “But we cannot for that reason underestimate that strategy,” the president warned. “We have to adjust our doctrine, our operations, and our procedures to that way of operating, without falling into the trap of reducing the effectiveness and vitality of the operations that we will continue to conduct against them, in the depths of the jungle or the heights of the mountains, wherever we may need to go,” he added. The president revealed that intelligence should be improved and deployment structures revised in order to operate in smaller and more effective units, against a hidden enemy, at the same time that action should be taken in close coordination with the justice system in order to be able to defeat the guerrillas. Santos said that, in addition, the consolidation and presence of the state in regions previously controlled by illegal armed groups should be made more flexible, and legal assistance should be provided to military personnel. “As an administration, we have to have the humility to know how to correct what needs to be corrected, and that is exactly what we’re doing,” the president specified.
The Florida Bar Board of Governors has given conceptual approval to a committee to improve relations between lawyers and doctors.Acting at the recommendation of the Program Evaluation Committee, the board at its June meeting approved the idea of the new panel. Chair Frank Walker said the PEC will set up a subcommittee to meet with the Florida Medical Association to work out the details of the new committee in the coming year.The PEC studied the issue for a year before unanimously approving the idea of the new panel, Walker said.The action comes in the wake of bruising battles between the FMA and the Academy of Florida Trial Lawyers on constitutional amendments on lawyer contingency fees in medical malpractice cases, the rights of patients to get records on doctor and hospital mistakes, and removing the license of doctors found to have committed three instances of malpractice.On another matter, Walker announced that the committee has approved placing results from the Bar’s every-other-year survey of law office economics and management practices on the Bar’s Web site, www.floridabar.org. That way, he said, members will be able to access the results for free instead of having to pay $35 for a printed report of the findings.The survey looks at salaries for associates, partners, and nonattorney staff at law firms, how firms use technology, and related information. The survey will be conducted this summer and the results released late this year. Bar, FMA considera joint committee July 1, 2006 Regular News Bar, FMA consider a joint committee

She established the foundation and asked Klein to advocate for her beliefs.“Civil rights, human rights, eliminating intolerance, prejudice, racism, bias, and stereotyping were important issues to Claire,” Klein said. “She inspired people, especially students, to stand up, speak out, engaging in freedom of expression — rights taken away from many during the Holocaust.”Klein said he believes that the Claire Friedlander Foundation’s partnership with Schneps Media and Queensborough Community College for the “Your Voice, Your Viewpoint” campaign can “energize citizens to become drivers of positive social change in their communities.”“We have the ingredients, including a vital college campus which can attract students and a prominent media platform which can spread communication and dialogue on these issues,” Klein added.The winning entries were selected by a panel of Queensborough Community College students, with a $500 prize given to each winner.The winners of the “Your Voice, Your Viewpoint” campaign are:Grand PrizeName: Skyla ChimAge: 12School: Nathaniel Hawthorne Middle School 74Runner UpName: Zoe ChuangAge: 13School: JHS 190Grand PrizeStudent: Violetta KingAge: 14Central Park East High SchoolRunner UpStudent: Joshua MercadoAge: 15 years oldSchool: La Salle AcademyPanel’s Honorable MentionStudent: Luke EcksteinAge: 19School: Kingsborough Community CollegeVideo Submission (“The Invisible Man”)Student: Mekhi HewlingAge: 16School: Curtis High School on Staten IslandSign up for Long Island Press’ email newsletters here.
