Could Emma Stone Have Played Cinderella in Into the Woods Film?

first_img Movie musical fave Anna Kendrick will rush down the steps of the palace as Cinderella in Into the Woods, which premieres in movie theaters on Christmas Day. Daniel Huttlestone—not Emma Stone—will play Jack. Take a look at both of them in action in an extended first look! Show Closed This production ended its run on March 29, 2015 On November 11, screen star Emma Stone will put down the knitting, the book and the broom and make her Broadway debut in Cabaret. Stone comes full circle, as she was originally tapped to headline the production before having to bow out, making room for Oscar nominee Michelle Williams. But in a profile with The New York Times, Stone reveals that she almost had another opportunity to show off her singing chops—minus Sally’s feather boa, plus a slipper as pure as gold. View Comments Rob Marshall, who co-directs the Roundabout production with Sam Mendes, had initially approached Stone for the role of Cinderella in his upcoming film adaptation of Into the Woods. She declined, citing that she did not have the vocal range for the role. The director recalls Stone’s playful alternative, saying: “She did ask, ‘Could I play Jack?’” Cabaret Related Showslast_img read more

4 lessons for turning kids into future leaders

first_imgAny parent would love to see their child turn into a passionate, and inspiring leader. As the one who raises them, it’s a parent’s job to start your kids off on the road to success. Here are four leadership lessons you can teach your kids, so they can begin thinking like a successful leader.Effective communication: One of the biggest problems in the workplace is a lack of good communication. By teaching your kids how to effectively communicate from a young age, you’re setting them up to be successful down the road. Make it so your kids are comfortable enough to talk to you, while setting the example of what it looks like to be a good listener.Fall down 7 times, get up 8: Everyone makes mistakes and that’s okay. Teach your kids that mistakes happen and they’re a great way to learn valuable lessons. It’s also a great time to teach them to pick themselves up after they fall down. Instill persistence in your children and teach them the importance of persevering.You can’t do it all: You can’t do everything on your own. Even the most talented pro athletes have top notch trainers, coaches, and teammates. Teach children about the importance of teamwork, and how help from others can propel them to success.Think outside the box: The answer to every problem isn’t always right in front of your eyes. Finding new ways to solve a problem is vital. When your kids are facing issues they find tough, give them opportunities to come up with creative solutions. 35SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.

Bruce Logan – Comparing Euthanasia to Terrorist Attack A Bizarre Comparison

first_imgBruce Logan – Board Member, Family First NZLike so many advocates for the End of Life Choice Bill, Labour MP Louisa Wall, while appealing to compassion, is infected by a confidence that she understands the mystery of human suffering (As on 9/11, choosing way you go is no sin – NZ Herald 13 Mar 2018).Louisa Wall quotes the American academic Margaret Battin to defend her case. However, one wonders if Wall has carefully read the American academic’s complex and inconclusive work.Louisa Wall’s reference to the 9/11 jumpers is no help at all. People were jumping to avoid being burnt to death. That they chose to jump is hardly surprising. Confronting certain death in a burning building and jumping to avoid one kind of immediate death for another is profoundly different from suffering in hospital with a terminal illness. The comparison is bizarre. This looks like a confused attempt to transfer sympathy for the jumpers to suicide generally and assisted suicide specifically. It’s beside the point.Even if we accept the argument made by Battin and replicated by Wall, that we have a fundamental right to kill ourselves akin to the right to life, it does not follow that we should endorse the legalisation of physician assisted suicide, which is what the Bill demands.Implicit in all the arguments for the End of Life Choice Bill is the befuddled human rights ideology informed by utilitarianism. Life, according to this ideology, is about human usefulness, a usefulness that can be understood and circumscribed by legislation. Reference to “quality of life” turns up ad nauseam. The phrase is used with unqualified confidence as though the users know what it means. But they don’t. Unless they have insight into the mystery of life not available to the rest of us.Louisa Wall says she believes “…we need to create a state authorised mechanism to enable death for those who have been diagnosed with an incurable medical condition that becomes terminal when all state treatments have been exhausted, and the person, based on medical knowledge, has less than 12 months to live.” That sounds like something out of Huxley’s Brave New World or George Orwell’s 1984.It is this kind of faith in a clinical diagnosis that can readily encourage a duty to die. Age rationing, a “just” distribution of health care income is likely to become a compulsory consideration. Spending money on the elderly is inefficient. The young will benefit more.The logic of physician assisted suicide must lead to doctors, and worse, corporate administrators deciding which lives are worth saving, caring for, and those who would be better off dead. The administrators’ decisions will not be based on compassion. They will be made by the strong over the weak. In passing, Stephen Hawking was diagnosed with Motor Neurone disease and given 2 years to live. Had assisted suicide been legal we might not have had him.By legalising assisted suicide we undermine the outworking of compassion. Compassion is a virtue and it comes at a cost. To suffer alongside someone we love is painful. But both the sufferer and the comforter know they are doing something of great value. It enriches the life of both. Compassion reinforces trust and encourages hope. The value and mystery of the human journey is less likely to be devalued.Conversely physician assisted suicide diminishes trust between the patient, relatives and friends, and in the profession generally. Suffering is not resolved, but potentially transferred to the lives of the relatives and even the physician. Whoever participates in assisted suicide assumes a unique responsibility for the act of ending a person’s life. He or she will never be sure that they had done the right thing. Guilt will remain a possible, even likely accuser.When a loved one is dying, resolution, forgiveness and shared declarations of love and hope between the comforter and sufferer is deeply human. Trust is essential. Such trust becomes very difficult to achieve if legalised assisted suicide is lurking in the wings. Sure, pain is a serious problem in some cases, but it is frequently inconsistent and can cause us to make decisions we later regret.Those who demand the legalisation of assisted suicide fail to understand the critical difference between pity and compassion. It is pity that demands the end of pain as quickly as possible. Compassion weeps with pity but sees further. Pity believes that suffering is the greatest evil. Compassion understands suffering’s terror as it tries to come to grips with the death of a loved one.The legalisation of assisted suicide solves no problems at all. It does nothing to reduce pain or help us confront the reality of death. Indeed, it is more likely to turn dying into what the utilitarians have always wanted, disposal of the useless.last_img read more

Sidebiter Chassis has new building, title sponsorship role of IMCA’s North Central Region

first_imgCLEAR LAKE, Iowa – A chassis builder nestled in the heart of the region is the new title sponsor for IMCA’s North Central Region for Modifieds.Sidebiter Chassis, owned by long-time driver Ryan Ruter, steps up to the new sponsorship role and provides part of the $6,000 point fund to be paid to top 10 drivers in the region that includes tracks in Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, North Dakota, Saskatchewan, South Dakota and Wisconsin.“This is something we’ve been interested in doing for a number of years. When we got the oppor­tunity to become a regional title sponsor, we jumped on it,” Ruter said. “It’s a great way for us to support IMCA racers driving all makes of chassis while getting our name out more.”Sidebiter is recently relocated from a shop at Ruter’s Kanawha farm home to a 100×100 square foot building in Clear Lake. The newly-constructed facility includes a showroom, shock repair cen­ter and parts warehouse as well as assembly and custom fabrication areas.“There’s room to expand here in the next five years. There are a lot of Modified drivers in this area and we’re here to service all makes and models of chassis,” said Ruter. “We’ve already got a really good parts inventory and if there’s something a driver needs that we don’t have, we can get it for them.”Ruter’s racing career started “back in the day” in the ‘B’ mod class. He moved up to a Modified 19 years ago and has been building cars himself for a dozen years.“I like being able to race at a lot of different tracks,” said Ruter, a veteran of the Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic Tour, Super Nationals, the Duel In the Desert and numerous forays around the Midwest. “There are IMCA tracks all over and you can race a lot of different nights of the week.”An open house at Sidebiter’s new home will be held later this spring.The champion of the Sidebiter Chassis North Central Region earns $2,500, with $1,250 for se­cond, $625 for third, $325 for fourth, $300 for fifth and $200 for sixth through 10th.Drivers must display two Sidebiter Chassis decals on their race car to be eligible for point fund shares. Those checks will be presented during the national awards banquet in November, or mailed beginning the next week from the IMCA home office.More information about Sidebiter chassis and services is available by calling 641 357-1600 and at the www.ruterracing.com website.“Adding Sidebiter Chassis as our North Central Region title sponsor is a result of the growth of not only IMCA in this region but Side Biter with the construction of their new facility,” IMCA Marketing Director Kevin Yoder observed. “They’ve positioned themselves as one of the top chassis builders not only in the Midwest, but the entire country, and one we’re confident to endorse to anyone.”last_img read more
