Between Riverside and Crazy premiered at off-Broadway’s Atlantic Theater Company this past summer. The cast will also include Ron Cephas Jones, Michael Rispoli, Victor Almanzar, Elizabeth Canavan and Rosal Colón. The play tells the story of Walter “Pops” Washington, an ex-cop and recent widower, who, with his recently paroled son Junior, struggle to hold on to one of the last rent-stabilized apartments on Riverside Drive. The Old Days seem to be dead and gone for the two as old wounds are opened, sketchy new houseguests turn up and a final ultimatum is delivered. Stephen Adly Guirgis’ Between Riverside and Crazy begins previews off-Broadway on January 16. Directed by Austin Pendleton and starring Stephen McKinley Henderson, Liza Colón-Zayas and more, the Second Stage production is playing at the Tony Kiser Theatre. Opening night is scheduled for February 11. View Comments Between Riverside and Crazy Related Shows Show Closed This production ended its run on March 22, 2015
Some plants thrive in almost cave-like shade. Others handle light-filtered shade. It is best to check the yard for shade at different times of the day and throughout the year to see what you really have. A site can be modified with the removal of a few tree limbs.Many vines can thrive in low-light areas and add color. Common jasmine does well in almost any soil condition and can handle moderate shade. It has bright yellow blooms. Carolina jessamine is another good choice. Both vines need support such as a post or trellis. Other vines for shaded areas are honeysuckle, cross vine, trumpet vine and large flowered clematis. Most of the ivies will also do well such as Algerian ivy. Avoid invasive types such as English ivy.For areas that require small plants or ground covers, consider holly fern, lenten rose or even daylilies. Others are pachysandra, periwinkle or possibly mondo grass. Many of these are available in a variegated form, which can brighten dark areas. Ferns certainly top the list for thriving in shaded, moist areas. Whether you choose the Christmas fern, Japanese painted fern or one of the other dozens available, they are sure to provide unique interest with their delicate foliage. Ferns can range in size from a few inches across to several feet.Other moist-area selections include willow gentian. It’s a perennial that grows three feet tall with arching stems bearing ultramarine-blue trumpets in the fall.Bottlebrush buckeye is another possibility for moist shaded areas. It is a native shrub that has white bottle brush shaped flowers. This plant can reach over six feet.Oakleaf hydrangea is a large native plant with spectacular white blooms in the spring that will also survive well in moist shaded areas. This plant is best sited in areas with plenty of room. Mature plants can be eight feet tall with a 10-foot spread.When it comes to shrubs, the list includes short, tall and medium plants as well as deciduous and evergreen varieties. Azaleas and yews are popular shade-tolerant shrubs. Within the world of perennials, the best-known example is the hosta. Hardy ferns of all kinds are easy to grow. Two favorites include autumn fern and cinnamon fern, so named because of its distinctively colored new fronds.Here are a few more shade-tolerant plants:Annuals: begonia, coleus, impatiens, forget-me-nots (Myosotis sylvatica), pansy (Viola)Perennials: astilbe, bleeding heart (Dicentra), bugbane (Cimicifuga), campanula, columbine (Aquilegia), coral bells (Heuchera), foxglove (Digitalis), goatsbeard (Aruncus), hellebore, daylily (Hemerocallis), hosta, Virginia bluebell (Mertensia pulmonarioides), fern, monkshood (Aconitum), phlox, primrose (Primula), lungwort (Pulmonaria), cardinal flower (Lobelia), Siberian iris, veronicaGroundcovers: ajuga, wild ginger (Asarum), sweet woodruff (Galium odoratum), epimedium, lamium, liriope, mondo grass (Ophiopogon japonicus), pachysandra, spirea, vincaShrubs: boxwood (Buxus), daphne, gold dust (Aucuba), holly (Ilex) hydrangea, mountain laurel (Kalmia latifolia), leucothoe, Oregon grape (Mahonia), mock orange (Philadelphus), nandina, cherry laurel (Prunus laurocerasus), rhododendron and azalea, viburnum, yew (Taxus)Trees: dogwood (Cornus), Japanese maple (Acer palmatum), stewartia.

By April SorrowUniversity of GeorgiaFew things are more impressive in the landscape than large, majestic oak trees or maple trees bursting with fall color. They add dimension and needed shade in the summer, too. They also provide a challenge to a gardener looking to add color to a shaded landscape.While the list of plants for sunny locations seems to be endless, the shade gardener must be a little more selective to ensure good plant survival. Luckily, there are many plants available to enhance shadowy real estate.First, determine how much shade you have. Is it a couple of hours in the afternoon caused by a few pine trees? Is it dense shade caused by a group of magnolia trees? There is a big difference between what we call partial shade and full shade. There are also areas of shade that fall between these two categories.
In addition, the Mission has 2,600 police officers. However, with regard to the political field, Ban said that “the democratic process in Haiti is still fragile,” and that he was “deeply concerned with the delay” to hold partial legislative, municipal and local elections. Secretary General Ban sent a report to the Security Council, requesting, “To consider another personnel reduction” in the U.N. Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), reducing troops from 6,270 to 5,021 by June 2014. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon recommended a 15% reduction of Blue Helmets in Haiti, due to improvements in security. “I hereby request Haitian political leaders to conduct a constructive dialogue, in order to achieve minimum political consensus and then hold elections whenever possible.” Haiti is a disaster, and has been like that for many years. The question is, is the UN there to prevent the country from being invaded by a foreign nation or from completely falling in the hands of drug cartels? Because no one talks about the life quality indicators and the only thing we know are the repeated news regarding the horrible living conditions of the majority of the population and the situation seems hopeless. I sent a regular comment and nothing was posted. By Dialogo August 22, 2013

Topics : Unprecedented wildfires in Oregon have all but destroyed five small towns and a record number of deaths is feared, Governor Kate Brown said on Wednesday.Oregon was the hardest hit state in the US West, where nearly 100 extreme wildfires were stoked by high winds and temperatures.In central Oregon, rescuers saved people’s lives by pulling them from the Santiam River where they had taken refuge from flames that destroyed scores of riverside homes, officials said. The Santiam Valley town of Detroit, as well as Blue River and Vida in coastal Lane County and Phoenix and Talent in southern Oregon were substantially destroyed, Brown told a news conference.”This could be the greatest loss in human lives and property due to wildfire in our state’s history,” Brown said.The governor gave no indication of how many people may have died, but one of Oregon’s most deadly blazes was in 1936 when a fire destroyed the city of Brandon and killed 13 people.Firefighters in Oregon, California and Washington retreated from uncontrolled blazes that forced tens of thousands to evacuate their homes and hundreds of thousands to lose power. “It was like driving through hell,” Jody Evans told local television station NewsChannel21 after a midnight evacuation from Detroit, about 50 miles (80 km) west of Salem.Evans fled the largest blaze in Oregon, known as the Beachie Fire, which threatened to join up with another wildfire to the west known as the Lionshead Fire.To the south, parts of Medford, Oregon, a popular retirement location with over 80,000 residents, were under evacuation orders or warnings as a growing wildfire closed a section of Interstate 5, the primary north-south highway in the West.As the fire moved north to Medford it heavily damaged Talent with about 6,000 residents and Phoenix, with around 5,000, according to local police.Brown saw no respite in the near term. “Winds continue to feed these fires and push them into our towns and cities,” she said, adding that thousands more Oregonians will need to evacuate over the next several hours.Climate scientists have blamed global warming for extreme wet and dry seasons in the US West that have caused grasses and scrub to flourish then dry out, leaving fuel that supercharges wildfires.In California, all 18 National Forests were closed due to what the US Forest Service called “unprecedented and historic fire conditions.”The Creek Fire about 35 miles (56 km) north of Fresno tore through the Sierra National Forest, susceptible due to drought and bark beetle damage, destroying over 360 homes and structures.“This fire is just burning at an explosive rate,” said Daniel Berlant, a spokesman for California’s state fire authority. “You add the winds, the dry conditions, the hot temperatures, it’s the perfect recipe.”Across the United States wildfires have burned nearly 4.7 million acres in 2020, the highest year-to-date area since 2018, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.Most of the fires are in western states, where 17 new large blazes were reported on Wednesday, bringing the total to 96 that have burned more than 3.4 million acres – an area nearly the size of the US state of Connecticut.Home construction has encroached on forests in recent decades, and owners watched houses burn as firefighters are unable to save property.
Marcus Rashford will be central to Man Utd’s hopes of causing an upset in the derby (Picture: Getty)Both teams need the win – United to keep their momentum going after beating Spurs in midweek and City to keep alive their title hopes – so I expect goals. I’m not keen on the draw though. I think United can surprise City and take all three points. That would end City’s title hopes, which would be great, except that it would hand the title to Liverpool, which is even worse. But if United win their derby on Saturday, they won’t be thinking about that.AdvertisementAdvertisementDimitar’s prediction: 1-2Aston Villa vs Leicester CityLeicester have been extraordinary so far but at some point in this Premier League campaign they have to slip up. They needed to come from behind a score a late winner against Everton last weekend, although they were comfortable against a poor Watford team in midweek. I like the way Villa play – they caused problems for their opponents at Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge in the past week – so I’m going for a home win here.Dimitar’s prediction: 2-1Newcastle United vs SouthamptonYou just don’t know which Newcastle team is going to turn up. Sometimes, they’re excellent, as they were in their wins over Spurs and Manchester United, and other times they’re flat. They battled to a draw against Manchester City last weekend and, even though Southampton are unbeaten in three, I’m going for the home win here. 1-0Norwich City vs Sheffield United: The Blades are, for me, the surprise package of the season so far. I like the way they play, they keep their shape, playing a fluid 3-5-2 formation that really suits them. Chris Wilder is doing a great job there. I’ve enjoyed watching Lys Mousset who can score goals and create them for his team mates. I expect them to win a tight game at Carrow Road.Dimitar’s prediction: 0-1Brighton vs WolvesWolves are firing and I like the way they play. If they can keep Nuno, who is one of the contenders for the Arsenal manager’s job, then it will be a massive boost for them. Brighton have lost their last three and, as they need to avoid defeat here, I can see them holding Wolves to a draw.AdvertisementDimitar’s prediction: 2-2West Ham vs Arsenal Marco Silva was sacked by Everton on Thursday (Picture: Getty)Results just haven’t been good enough and the hammering against Liverpool was dismal for Everton fans. There really was no coming back for Marco Silva after that 5-2 defeat. Chelsea, on the other hand, are in good form under Frank Lampard, with Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham getting better every week.Dimitar’s prediction: 1-2AFC Bournemouth vs LiverpoolI have a funny feeling about this one. Liverpool have won all but one match in the Premier League this season and they look unstoppable. Bournemouth, on the other hand, have lost four in a row. But Dean Court can still be a difficult place for visiting teams – as Manchester United discovered last month – and I expect Eddie Howe’s men to be well organised and capable of getting something on the break. So I’m going to predict an upset.Dimitar’s prediction: 1-0Tottenham Hotspur vs BurnleyThe defeat at Old Trafford in midweek was Spurs’ worst performance under Jose Mourinho. The only positive was Dele Alli’s goal which was unbelievable. It’s easy for me to say, as a former Spurs and United player, but I doubt there’s any fan who doesn’t want to see a piece of skill like that. Anyway, Mourinho won’t let his players’ heads drop now and they’ll be back on it at home to Burnley on Saturday.Dimitar’s prediction: 2-0.Watford vs Crystal PalaceWatford are now seven points from safety and they are starting to look like the club – there’s one most seasons – that spends most of the season destined for relegation. They’ve sacked two managers this term and, while there’s still time for whoever takes over to save them, they need to start improving immediately. Palace have won two on the trot but I think the home side can secure a useful point here.Dimitar’s prediction: 1-1Manchester City vs Manchester United Comment Dimitar Berbatov previews another massive weekend of Premier League action (Pictures: REX/METRO.CO.UK)Liverpool continued their unrelenting march towards Premier League glory with a crushing win over Everton in midweek and will hope for a favour from another of their rivals this weekend.Manchester United are underdogs for the derby at the Etihad, but their form against their top six rivals under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer offers some hope they could cause an upset against the champions.Leicester are currently Liverpool’s closest challengers in the table and they will be hopeful of extending their winning run at Aston Villa, especially following the news that Brendan Rodgers has extended his contract.Arguably the biggest game of the weekend, however, comes on Monday night when struggling Arsenal travel to equally out of sorts West Ham.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTBetfair Ambassador Dimitar Bebatov previews the action exclusively for Metro.co.uk…Everton vs Chelsea Advertisement Dimitar BerbatovFriday 6 Dec 2019 11:30 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link283Shares Dimitar Berbatov’s Premier League predictions including Arsenal, Chelsea, Man Utd & Liverpool Advertisement Struggling Arsenal can ill-afford another defeat at West Ham on Monday (Picture: Getty)A London derby could bring the best out in these teams. Or it could bring out the worst. Arsenal are capable of losing to anyone but West Ham have problems too. Last weekend’s win at Chelsea was a great moment for the Hammers but they reverted to poor form in their midweek defeat to Wolves. These are probably two of the most unpredictable teams in the Premier League, especially as we don’t know yet what impact Freddie Ljunberg will have on the Gunners.

Bruno Fernandes has impressed since arriving at Manchester United in January United make the short trip to Goodison Park on Sunday in an upbeat mood after seven games unbeaten – and six clean sheets – in all competitions. On Thursday they progressed to the last-16 of the Europa League after a 5-0 win at home against Club Brugge gave them a 6-1 win on aggregate. Solskjaer endured what remains his most chastening day in the hotseat last April at Everton, apologising to fans after a 4-0 rout as their season unravelled. “That was the lowest I’ve been,” Solskjaer said, referring to the Everton defeat. “I think you all know that and remember that. That was a capitulation. “We had absolutely nothing about us, even though their goals were more or less counter-attacks from set plays and long throw-ins.” The Norwegian said he was certain his side would produce a better performance on Sunday. “I can with hand on heart 100 percent say these boys will never give in and never give up like that team did,” he said. “These are the boys we want to build the next team around.” Of that starting line-up, Chris Smalling has left on loan, Phil Jones has barely featured and Paul Pogba has seen his playing time heavily restricted by injuries. Romelu Lukaku is the only starter that day to have left permanently. United at last appear to have found some consistency and confidence after a bumpy season but Solskjaer said he knew it would take time. The January arrival of Portugal midfielder Bruno Fernandes has lifted the team, who are fifth in the Premier League table, three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea. “We knew when we made the decisions we made in the summer it was going to take time,” said Solskjaer. “As I’ve said a few times, Rome wasn’t built in a day. “The culture, the attitude, the fitness, the camaraderie, the team spirit and maybe even the understanding between players have improved.
