    District gives update on bond projects | Business | – The Derby Informer - May 24, 2020 by admin

    The school district recently gave an update on the progress of a number of bond projects. The bond projects are currently around $1.8 million under budget overall, though that amount could change at any time. Here is a summary of those updates:

    Stone Creek Elementary: The Stone Creek Elementary construction project is in its final phase before completion, and is anticipated to be ready for school in August. All windows and other glass have been installed in the learning hubs and classrooms. Carpet is being installed in the classroom wings, and cabinets are being installed throughout the building. The entry area/cafeteria/office area is framed, and drywall will be installed soon. The curb is being installed at the driveways. Parking lots will be constructed in early summer. The Informer will have a detailed story about this project coming soon.

    Derby Hills Elementary: Phase 1 of this project, the new gymnasium, is almost complete. The interior of the gym is painted and acoustic panels are on the walls. The ceiling grid is in place on the connecting hallway. Phase 2 started earlier than anticipated due to the lack of people in the building because of COVID-19. All the ceilings in the hallways have been removed for mechanical system improvements. Demolition has also started in the existing cafeteria and kitchen area. The existing cafeteria will be converted to the new kitchen, and the existing gymnasium will become the new lunchroom. The existing playground equipment will be relocated in May to a location north of the new gymnasium, and will also include a new Americans with Disabilities Act playground surrounded by artificial turf. The project is anticipated to be completed in August.

    Tanglewood Elementary: Work inside Tanglewood Elementary started early because of COVID-19 closing buildings. Demolition in the office area and kitchen has started. Electrical, HVAC and plumbing rough-in is happening inside the building. Drywall work on the first floor has begun, and the second floor will soon follow. Brick and metal wall panels are being installed on the exterior of the building. The work in Tanglewood will be complete in August, and its administrative center will be completed in November.

    Derby Middle School: The Derby Middle School bond project involves mechanical system upgrades, new locker rooms, remodeled concession area, and classroom expansions along the north wing. Construction will begin this summer.

    Derby High School: The expanded multipurpose/physical education space named the Panther Activity Center now has its steel frame installed. Brick at the base and the metal wall panels are being installed. The office area and a number of classrooms are also being worked on. The library will receive new paint and carpet over the next couple of months. The project is anticipated to be completed in October.

    10-year Phenom Inspections Keep Clay Lacy Aviation Busy – Aviation International News - May 24, 2020 by admin

    Clay Lacy Aviation has been keeping busy with 10-year/120-month inspections of Embraer Phenom 100 and 300 twinjets, even adding $1.8 million in Phenom parts inventory to keep pace with the work and ensure on-time aircraft delivery. The company has completed 10Phenom 100/300 120-monthinspectionsat its California Part 145 repair stations at Van Nuys(VNY) and McClellan-Palomar (CRQ) airports, and it hasfive more such inspectionsunderway.

    So far, the inspections have yielded additional work such as seat reupholstery, new carpet installation, baggage-area refurbishment, connectivity upgrades to Gogo Avance L3, and, in the Phenom 100, installation of Garmins G1000 NXi integrated flight deck. The Phenom is a tremendous aircraft, and demand for inspection and upgrade services has been very strong, said Clay Lacy Embraer program manager Ned Zolota.

    A Phenom 120-month inspection involves removal of the interior and opening of all inspection panels and generally lasts three weeks without landing-gear overhaul. If the landing gear is overhauled, the project typically extends to four or five weeks.

    An authorized Embraer service center, Clay Lacy Aviation supports more than 100 Phenom 100s and 300s with more than 20 Phenom-trained technicians between its VNY and CRQ facilities.

    25 stage pros on reopening theater after coronavirus – Los Angeles Times - May 24, 2020 by admin

    Hello, from Week 3,742 of the quarantine! Oh, its been only two months, you say? Well, whats a few thousand weeks when you live in a timeless void. Im Carolina A. Miranda, staff writer at the Los Angeles Times, with the weeks essential culture news and viral Grease lip-syncing.

    Before we get into the nitty-gritty, how bout a little color and light, courtesy of Rachel Hayes, who recently had an appointment-only installation go on view at Lowell Ryan Projects in West Adams? The artist, who is based in Tulsa, Okla., creates large-scale fabric pieces (these are 13 feet tall) that feature bright geometric patterns. She often uses these in outdoor installations that offer plays on motion and light. In the gallery, the shifts are more subtle, with the movement of a visitor triggering gentle flutterings.

    Note that face masks and appointments are required at Lowell Ryan. Hayes Land Lines is on view until June 27.

    What will the theater of the future look like? Times theater critic Charles McNulty brought together 25 top minds to ponder that question, including playwrights Lynn Nottage and Luis Alfaro, artistic directors Kristy Edmunds of CAP UCLA and Yuval Sharon of the Industry.

    Performers weigh in, too. Patti LuPone says a good start might be taking a hose to the perpetually filthy environments backstage.

    I crave theater made out of the rough-hewn stuff of our lives, says Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Quiara Alegra Hudes. A theater of junk and reclaimed nooks. A theater of secrecy and sacredness and participatory respect. A theater where we earn our experience by shedding complacency. A theater that no one in their right mind could label content.

    Visiting art galleries in a pandemic is a complicated proposition, so the downtown artist-run space Durden and Ray put art in public places, including a chain-link fence, for a show titled We Are Here / Here We Are. All 97 works around Los Angeles County are viewable from the street or the sidewalk. Its a show, writes Times art critic Christopher Knight, that embraces L.A. sprawl. One of the most appealing features, says Knight, is that the serendipity of art encounters in public places is embedded in ordinary experience ... these works thrive beyond institutions or the marketplace.

    Plus, The Times Jessica Gelt reports that Hector Guimares The Present, produced for small audiences on Zoom by the Geffen Playhouse, has not only turned into a phenomenon it proves that virtual performances featuring socially distant audiences can, in fact, feel communal. As Guimares tells her: If this social distance vanishes for a short time, I will have done my job.

    Since the pandemic began, commercial director AJ Bleyer has been shooting footage of L.A.'s empty streets. Now he has compiled the footage into a short video that serves as an archive of the early days of the pandemic, writes Makeda Easter. It was this really special period of time, he tells her. Traffic really halted and everyone was just kind of staying inside.

    At Keck Hospital of USC, doctors, nurses and patients have taken to wearing bright green stickers to note that they have been screened for coronavirus and that they have sanitized their hands. The stickers became the site of an informal art project featuring drawings of ice cream cones and smiley faces. Then, reports The Times Deborah Vankin, some of the stickers got political and what began as an informal art project went haywire.

    The nursing staff at Keck Medical Center of USC got creative about the coronavirus screening process, customizing the stickers visitors must wear with original art.

    Vankin also reports on a COVID-19 relief effort by the L.A.-based nonprofit group Red Carpet Advocacy and celebrity photographer Mark Seliger. Seliger has selected 25 limited-edition prints of figures such as Barack Obama, Billie Eilish and Lin-Manuel Miranda that will be auctioned at Christies. Each celebrity has chosen a charity that will receive funds from the sale of each work.

    The Segerstrom Center for the Arts remains closed, but its website is a repository of classes for students and the public, including lessons on ballet, storytelling and even how to make your own marionette.

    U.S. museums are beginning to reopen. Among the first: the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, where you will have to submit to a temperature check and wear a mask in order to enter the galleries. New Yorks Metropolitan Museum of Art, however, will not reopen until mid-August or later.

    Related: Museums in Italy have also begun to reopen.

    The Art Dealers Assn. of America issued a new report projecting a 73% loss in revenue as a result of the pandemic.

    For nonprofit arts organizations, coronavirus-related losses could hit $6.8 billion, according to a report issued by SMU DataArts and TRG Arts.

    Plus, New Yorks missing sounds.

    Matt Cooper has been rounding up the best watches, listens and looks, including a staging of A Streetcar Named Desire featuring Gillian Anderson as Blanche DuBois, a celebration of African dance presented by the Brooklyn Academy of Music and a new website that serves as a chronicle of MOCAs 2011 graffiti and street art show Art in the Streets.

    The Cannes Film Festival has been canceled. Thankfully, Times film critic Justin Chang rounds up 28 of the festivals best films to stream right now. Plus, Vulture asks almost two dozen figures from the film world what theyve been watching during the pandemic, and it includes everything from Ingmar Bergman to Notting Hill.

    Are you in need of a film that feels like a feverish quarantine dream? I heartily recommend David Lynchs 16-minute short What Did Jack Do? from 2017. The plot: A detective, played by Lynch, questions a capuchin monkey named Jack Cruz about a murder. Its hallucinatory and absurd, with some hilarious plays on the hard-boiled nature of cop-movie dialogue. Also, did I mention that the monkey is in love with a chicken? Its streaming on Netflix.

In a tribute, New Yorker critic Peter Schjeldahl says her work seethed with motion the isotope that had gone missing from the mandarin styles of the day.

    A 1970 Philip Glass score was lost, then found. Now it has been recorded. Long Beach Opera announced its 2021 season, curated by interim artistic advisor Yuval Sharon, who will be directing Comet / Poppea, a new work that brings together aspects of a Monteverdi opera with a sci-fi story by W.E.B.

    Safety Protocols for Shifting from Office to Home – Occupational Health and Safety - May 24, 2020 by admin

    Safety Protocols for Shifting from Office to Home

    Although staff no longer must make the commute into the office, safety hazards can and do still exist in the home. Here's your WFH safety checklist.

    A substantial share of the US workforce is currently working from home to respect social distancing and to stop the spread of COVID-19. For some organizations, the transition from corporate office to home office has not been overly difficult. For other industries, remote work is accompanied with a large number of challenges, and the transition from office to home has not been as smooth.

    As companies continue to navigate and overcome their own individual obstacles, its important that safety is not brushed aside. Although staff no longer must make the commute into the office, safety hazards can and do still exist in the home.

    As some states and provinces in North America ease restrictions and begin to re-open, some offices will continue to work from home. Companies such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google are in no rush to bring their employees back to the physical office. Thus, this article will identify safety protocols to take for employers and employees who employ a remote workforce.

    Set Up a Safe and Comfortable Work Environment

    Its important to dedicate adequate time and resources to set up a suitable at-home office due to the large amount of time that you will be spending here. Some important aspects to consider are chair and desk design, lighting, privacy and air flow. Investing in an ergonomic chair is a very good idea, specifically one with adjustable backrest, armrest and seat depth.

    Conduct Regular At-Home Hazard Assessments

    Before settling into your home office, its important to carry out an at-home hazard assessment to identify the safety risks that may be present. There is a broad range of hazards that can exist in the home, including ergonomic, physical, chemical, biological, environmental and electrical hazards.

    Behind the Scenes of Grand Hotel’s Opening Day (It’s Amazing) – - May 24, 2020 by admin

    The Final Stage

    By late morning on that final day before the official opening, the anticipation about the new season is palpable everywhere in the building. Im a little bit nervous but I think Im prepared, says Nehemiah Neo Brown, who has been hired as a bellhop for the 2019 season: Its his first job. Its definitely exciting to be here.

    Guests will arrive by ferry the next day, check-in, enjoy high tea in the parlor, as always, and dine and drink at the hotels restaurants and bars. With the weather expecting to clear and warm up by the weekend, the front nine of the golf course will be open as well as the four tennis courts.

    We sell a summer experience here, not just room and board, says Bob Tagatz, the hotels long-time historian. But everything has to be in place and ready to go. Its a little bit like putting on a play and the hotel is the stage. Its not just a play but a Broadway production.

    A production nearly ready to go, waiting for the last props to be put in place, namely the 1,375 geraniums along the 600-foot-long front porch and the red carpet at the main entrance.

    Rhapsody in blue: a Milanese apartment – The Guardian - May 24, 2020 by admin

    Milans Sforza Castle may not be as well known as its Teatro alla Scala or Duomo, but it is one of the Italian citys proudest monuments. In the mid-1400s the Duke of Milan, Francesco I Sforza, transformed what were near ruins into one of the most exclusive residences of the Italian Renaissance. A few years later, the restoration was taken further by Francescos fourth son, Ludovico il Moro, who enlisted his contemporaries to help him deck it out, including a couple of chaps called Donato Bramante and Leonardo da Vinci. Five centuries on, across the road in the home of former fashion designer Lorenza Bozzoli, history is repeating itself.

    The Milan-born artist and interior designer, together with her husband, architect Piergiorgio Fasoli, has just finished a six-month renovation of their mezzanine apartment in front of the castle on the Piazza Castello. They have turned a boring studio, as Bozzoli puts it, into a multicoloured Tardis filled with furniture and art.

    This is the first apartment the couple have lived in since their son, Fedro, moved out last year. It represents a new beginning all round, says Bozzoli. Weve always designed every place weve lived in and redone everything, but every time is different. You grow up and have different needs. Before, it was about family; now its about us.

    Despite three fantastic windows inviting spectacular views of the castle (curtains have been deliberately eschewed so as to feel a part of the city), any trace of tradition stops there. In Bozzolis home, every surface has had a vivid, modern makeover. The feel is energetic and experimental. Bozzoli is not afraid of combining contrasting ideas.

    In her bedroom, the walls are covered in a palm-print wallpaper by Herms. Elsewhere, realistic jungle scenes depicted by the wallpaper publisher Ananbo cover the walls; in the bathroom, imported Brazilian marble is contrasted with an aquamarine bidet and toilet; large-scale pieces by the Sicilian abstract expressionist artist Emanuele Diliberto hang in every room. If you like it, you like it, Bozzoli laughs.

    One of the things she likes the most in her home is the signature fringed pouffes she designed for her eponymous brand, Lorenza Bozzoli Couture, which have become an international hit I love that every single one is different, she says and the thick-pile carpets designed by Bethan Laura Wood for the Milan-based rug company cc-Tapis. You must feel comfortable from the moment you enter the house, she insists, so everything must be soft and warm. You should never feel cold when you stick your feet out of the bed. I hate cold floors. They take so much energy from the body.

    Where the carpet stops in the kitchen, wood decorated with a geometric Escher pattern takes over. This room, says Bozzoli, is the opposite of any kitchen in their previous homes. The idea was to do something that was as less kitchen as possible more like an office. The lights in this room are all Bozzolis own designs for Tato Italia, while the table is by Simone Bonanni for Mingardo surrounded by Gio Pontis iconic 699 Superleggera chairs for Cassina. The backsplash has been rendered in convex ceramic tiles by the award-winning designers Rombini and the double-height cabinets housing the couples glassware were designed by Piergiorgio (the Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck figurines that sit on top of them were picked up by Bozzoli in a flea market 20 years ago. They follow me around, she says, smiling.)

    However office-inspired, this is a space that allows Bozzoli to indulge her love of cooking (Im a real Italian lady, I cook tons, she laughs) and entertaining. We love being sociable, she says. This is a house that is always open. People pass by to say hello or to have an aperitif or stay for dinner. Friends are always coming and going. During Salone del Mobile, we usually have about 200 creative friends from all over the world although that, of course, didnt happen this year.

    In keeping with the apartments art gallery-cum-installation-space feel, clothes are kept in a secret built-in wardrobe in the bedroom, and personal belongings are hidden behind the cherry-wood panelled cupboards in the living room. I have so many things, you cant imagine Im not a teenager after all, she says. All my life I have collected objects, hats, shoes, books my husband has a ton of music, too, but we like to have as little furniture as possible, so we made these to put everything in.

    The one space where its all allowed to hang out is in Bozzolis office from where she runs her studio, designing for the likes of Alessi, Dutch furniture company Moooi and lighting specialists Slamp, as well as her own brand. Books, hats, keepsakes and mementoes from her travels are kept in an old wardrobe belonging to her grandfather. It stands beside one of her most prized possessions: a wall-to-wall glass and wood cabinet. I rescued it from a bread shop years ago. I heard banging and smashing and looked in and saw them destroying all the shop fittings with a hammer, and screamed at them to stop. It was, sadly, the only one left. I was almost too late!

    The "New Normal" for Flying Through Orlando International Airport – Inside the Magic - May 24, 2020 by admin

    As the Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Orlando Resort continue their reopening measures, Orlando International Airport has taken the initiative to let all would-be visitors know what to expect during their visit.

    On May 21, 2020, the TSA implemented changes to security screening at airports nationwide that reduce the potential for cross-contamination and help prevent the spread of the virus behind the pandemic. Earlier today, May 22, Orlando International Airport (MCO) shared a video of how those changed will affect their customers passing through on their way to Universal, Disney, or any of Central Floridas attractions and destinations.

    They shared the video over twitter and explained, We continue to improve and adapt in order to create the safest way to travel for our customers. Heres an update on some of our procedures to ensure a healthy experience to all.

    You can watch the full video here:

    Related: Disney Enforces Use of Face Masks on Disney Springs Reopening Day

    Promising to meet customers expectations and bring peace of mind to their passengers and staff, MCO will implement the following changes:

    MCO strongly advises that all passengers wear protective face coverings, but face coverings are also already required on over 24 of the airlines that fly in and out of the airport. Passengers are also now allowed to carry-on up to 12 oz of hand sanitizer and are asked to wash hands frequently. Hand sanitizer stations will also be placed throughout the terminals.

    There is no word yet how long these extra health measures will remain in effect, but if you are looking to be one of the first guests to walk back through the gates of Universal Studios Florida, The Magic Kingdom, or any other Orlando-area theme park, this is what MCO will look like when you arrive.

At the entry road, hoardings and placards with flight details will be displayed, and there will be several entry gates to prevent crowding. All passengers will be required to have the Aarogya Setu app installed, where officials will check the persons status, along with his or her temperature on a thermal screening device.

    If a person does not have the app, he will have to sign an undertaking that the phone was not compatible with the apps requirements. If the temperature is within the prescribed government limits 100.4 F and the app shows a green status, the passenger will be allowed in.

    At the boarding gate, a CISF officer will be standing behind a glass partition and passengers will have to display the confirmed web check-in document along with an ID without coming in contact with the security officer. Social distancing norms will be maintained at the waiting queue, officials said.

    Once crossing the automatic doors at the gate, passengers will be greeted with a squishy sanitising carpet, meant to disinfect the bottom surface of shoes. As you step on the carpet, it releases a sanitising liquid that can clean the bottom sole of shoes, said an airport official. This will be followed by another thermal scan and the passenger will have to sanitise his hands with a contactless dispenser. Passengers will be encouraged to self check-in using contactless kiosks where scanning the QR code will produce the boarding pass.

    According to officials, all departure baggage will be sanitised through a UV light disinfection tunnel, developed by DIAL. Passengers will be expected to put the tags on the bags themselves, but they can ask ground staff for assistance. At every point of contact, a bottle of sanitiser has been placed.

    For Delhi and Hyderabad airports, an app called HOI has been developed which provides information about departures and arrivals, among other things. Food courts and restaurants will also be open for passengers but will be functioning with fewer seats. A team of 500 professionals will disinfect the terminal every one hour.

    According to officials, no shuttle buses will operate and passengers will use one of the 14 aerobridges to reach the aircraft. Masks will be compulsory for all passengers and all Covid-related norms listed by the Aviation Ministry will be followed during in-flight operations.

    For those arriving at the Delhi airport from another city, a screening will be compulsory and medical staff, assisted by airport authorities, will have facilities to isolate suspected Covid passengers. After this, the government guidelines for isolation, quarantine or testing will follow.
