Marin Mazzie Undergoes Treatment for Ovarian Cancer

first_img Jason Danieley Three-time Tony nominee Marin Mazzie has been battling ovarian cancer. Her husband, fellow Broadway star Jason Danieley, revealed the news and shared their journey from her diagnosis through treatment in a blog entry titled “I Am Woman Hear Me Roar!” on September 27.Mazzie began to feel discomfort in her stomach in May, during rehearsals for the Encores! presentation of Zorba!, in which she played The Leader. After some tests, she received the upsetting news that the doctors had found a growth on both ovaries. The pain had been caused by ascites, a fluid produced by cancerous cells.Still, Mazzie powered through rehearsals and performances, drawing inspiration from two of Danieley’s co-stars who took to the stage while undergoing cancer treatments: the late Kathleen Freeman during The Full Monty and Roger Rees during The Visit. Rees passed away on July 10; a memorial was held at the New Amsterdam Theater for him last week.Mazzie has been receiving treatment at Memorial Sloan-Kettering hospital in what Danieley describes as a “hell of a journey in three acts.” After undergoing 12 weeks of chemotherapy, she faced a complete hysterectomy and bowel resection, and despite a scare after a post-surgery infection, she was soon back to doing laps around the hospital floor, recalls Danieley.The Tony nominee is currently going through another 12 weeks of chemotherapy, which the pair embraces with the term “healing therapy.” Her cancer is expected to be in remission following the treatment.Mazzie last appeared on the Great White Way in Bullets Over Broadway; she has received Tony nominations for her performances in Kiss Me, Kate, Ragtime and Passion. Her additional credits include Next to Normal opposite her husband, Spamalot, Man of La Mancha and the off-Broadway revival of Carrie.“I hope she can buoy someone up or give strength to a person who is just starting their journey with cancer,” writes Danieley, who is set to return to Broadway in Chicago next month. He assures his readers that there’s “no grass growing under her ass,” as she remains active during her treatment.Broadway.com wishes Marin and Jason all the best as she continues on her path to a full and safe recovery.

Fall Vegetables

first_imgAs summer vegetables like corn and beans stop bearing, home gardeners can plant fall gardens filled with cool-season vegetables. Timing is everything Fall gardens in Georgia can be very challenging to get cool-season vegetables through the end of summer. It’s a delicate balance in starting them early enough to allow them to mature (50 to 60 days) before a hard frost and getting them through the end of a hot, dry summer. Fall vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, kale, turnips, radishes, spinach, lettuce and beets can be purchased as seedlings from garden centers. These plants will be ready to transplant into the garden. Onion sets should be transplanted in October. Keep young seedlings watered until they are established. And, keep a sharp eye out for pest problems such as insects, diseases and weeds that continue to flourish in warm temperatures and high humidity. A layer of newspaper and mulch placed between garden rows can avoid a lot of weed problems and help conserve soil moisture. Contact your local University of Georgia Cooperative Extension office at 1-800-ASK-UGA1 for more information on growing fall vegetable gardens.last_img read more

International Drug Organization Busted in Argentina

first_imgBy Dialogo September 20, 2012 The Argentine Police, in coordination with their counterparts of Uruguay and Paraguay, busted an international organization that was trafficking drugs to Europe and Asia by using ‘‘drug mules’‘ that swallowed cocaine capsules, informed the Ministry of Security on September 18. The investigation, coordinated with the police forces of Paraguay and Uruguay – countries where ‘‘mules’‘ were also recruited – started three months ago after the detention of four people that were trying to travel to Brazil, with Europe as their final destination. During the raids, 6 kilos of cocaine were confiscated, as well as cell phones, computers, cash, and documents. On September 15 and 16, the police conducted 14 raids in different neighborhoods of Buenos Aires, where 11 men and 3 women of Peruvian, Dutch, Romanian, and South African nationalities were arrested. After a careful surveillance and the analysis of 700 hours of wire tapping, investigators were able to establish the time and date in which two ‘‘mules’‘ would be departing from Jorge Newbery Airfield in Buenos Aires to São Paulo, with Doha (Qatar) as final destination. ‘‘The discreet and professional investigation carried out by the Airport Security Police allowed the capture of all of the criminal organization’s members conducting drug trafficking with this brutal method,’‘ said Security Minister Nilda Garré. In the beginning of September, the police busted another drug trafficking organization comprised of Dominican Republic nationals who resort to indigents to transport cocaine to Europe inside their bodies.last_img read more

MINUSTAH, the Peace Force that Lifted a Country in Need

first_imgConsidering that the 7-magnitude earthquake ravaged the nation and a large part of the MINUSTAH force itself –it claimed the lives of 102 United Nation personnel, among the 220,000 total lives lost as a result, according to UN statistics– these accomplishments show the resiliency and humanity of the people that worked together to come through and support Haiti back to her feet. During his interview, Lt. Gen. Jaborandy stated that the current force is at 5,021, but that it is expected to be further reduced to about 2,370 in March, once Security Council Resolution 2180 of October 2014 is approved. The resolution stipulates a reduced presence as well as a new operational role to operate as a Rapid Response Force supporting the UNPOL, the HNP and the military troops. In the aftermath of the earthquake, and in spite of losing 18 military personnel, BRABAT I and II were responsible for providing assistance and security to 1.5 million displaced Haitians; removing debris and paving, drilling, and repairing roadways; distributing 375,000 tons of food; and performing 19,000 surgeries and 40,000 medical consults, according to data provided by the Brazilian Ministry of Defense. BRABAT is based out of Port-au-Prince, and includes service members from the Brazilian Army, Air Force, Navy (Marines), as well as a platoon from the Paraguayan Army. The Chile Battalion remained in place and continued to support their Haitian brethren although Chile itself was beset by an 8.8-magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami only a few weeks later, on February 27, 2010. “In spite of this new natural catastrophe, the Chilean Soldiers continued their work to alleviate and offer security to the vulnerable Haitian population in need, loyally fulfilling their mission of maintaining a safe and stable environment and contributing to the support and recovery efforts of the people of Haiti,” said Cap. Abrego. For its part, the Chile Battalion, composed of Chilean Army and Navy (Marines) members based out of Cape Haitian, immediately deployed a platoon to Port-au-Prince to assist in providing security at food distribution centers and to the vehicles transporting it. According to Chilean Navy Captain Pedro Abrego, partner nation liaison officer at U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM), “this type of humanitarian task deeply touches the Soldiers, because in spite of fulfilling a mission of providing security, organizing people into lines, and avoiding unrest and plundering in the midst of their search for food, it meant that they were lending a hand in a humanitarian act to those who needed it most.” MINUSTAH’s Canada Battalion contributed to the Haiti recovery efforts with a humanitarian task force mandated with delivering various services and humanitarian resources to the Haitian government and the Canadian Embassy in Port-au-Prince. But the number of participants is only one of the factors that have made MINUSTAH the powerful force behind Haiti’s recovery. Working jointly and collaboratively with the International Community, MINUSTAH’s presence also signified that the whole world joined to work towards lending a hand to their ailing sister. Considering that the 7-magnitude earthquake ravaged the nation and a large part of the MINUSTAH force itself –it claimed the lives of 102 United Nation personnel, among the 220,000 total lives lost as a result, according to UN statistics– these accomplishments show the resiliency and humanity of the people that worked together to come through and support Haiti back to her feet. The United Nations (UN) has had an active involvement in Haiti since 1990, but it wasn’t until the Security Council adopted resolution 1542 that the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti –MINUSTAH– was officially established on April 30, 2004. During his interview, Lt. Gen. Jaborandy stated that the current force is at 5,021, but that it is expected to be further reduced to about 2,370 in March, once Security Council Resolution 2180 of October 2014 is approved. The resolution stipulates a reduced presence as well as a new operational role to operate as a Rapid Response Force supporting the UNPOL, the HNP and the military troops. “Specifically, the Task Force provided emergency medical services; engineering expertise; maritime, aerial, and land mobility and support to Haiti’s security and defense,” said Canadian Army Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Theriault, Canadian liaison officer at SOUTHCOM and former participant in MINUSTAH’s Canada Battalion from 2005-2006. “At the mission’s peak, the Task Force included 2,050 Canadian military service members deployed in Port-au-Prince, Leogane, and Jacmel,” he noted. “The Canada Battalion was responsible for stabilizing Leogane, the most heavily affected area, according to the UN, with losses and damage in the 80-90 percent range and 20,000-30,000 deaths.” According to Lt. Gen. Jaborandy, “the encouragement, enthusiasm and commitment of those who have honor of representing their country by working for Haiti through the United Nations,” are important factors in overcoming the challenges that this type of mission involves. “I am confident that a partial drawdown of the Mission’s surge military and police capabilities would be unlikely to undermine the progress made so far on the security front and would not affect the ability of MINUSTAH to carry out its mandated functions,” he said in his August 2011 report to the Security Council. MINUSTAH’s Canada Battalion contributed to the Haiti recovery efforts with a humanitarian task force mandated with delivering various services and humanitarian resources to the Haitian government and the Canadian Embassy in Port-au-Prince. By June 2011, Haiti’s security situation had improved since the earthquake struck. The democratic presidential elections of 2010 and subsequent run-off elections of March 2011 were successful in re-instituting the democratic process, and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon recommended the first of several partial drawbacks in the mission’s military and police components. “We live in a society of abundance, and because of it we must share our successful experiences and methods to aid in the development of a less fortunate society,” said Lt. Col. Theriault. Though the mission was originally set up to support Haiti’s transitional government in restoring and maintaining a secure and stable environment and promoting and protecting human rights, the role of MINUSTAH has changed over time according to the current situation of the country. Lieutenant General José Luiz Jaborandy, Jr., MINUSTAH’s current Force Commander, recently told Diálogo that the role of the military component of the mission was stronger when it was first established. “Currently, the military component no longer plays a leading role. It has adopted a secondary role in support of the Haitian authorities’ actions on security, developing infrastructure, humanitarian actions, and improving the living conditions of its population,” he stated. By Dialogo February 03, 2015 Though the mission was originally set up to support Haiti’s transitional government in restoring and maintaining a secure and stable environment and promoting and protecting human rights, the role of MINUSTAH has changed over time according to the current situation of the country.

According to Lt. Gen. Jaborandy, “the encouragement, enthusiasm and commitment of those who have honor of representing their country by working for Haiti through the United Nations,” are important factors in overcoming the challenges that this type of mission involves. In order to help with Haiti’s immediate recovery, reconstruction, and stability efforts following the 2010 earthquake, for example, the mission’s military component was increased to an apex in the mission’s history. Just to mention one case, Brazil, which has led MINUSTAH’s military component since 2004, saw the need to deploy a second battalion –BRABAT II– to augment the force and fill the needs of the nation. “Regardless of the cultural differences and the different forms of employment among the Armed Forces that are represented [in MINUSTAH], we’re all united under the brotherhood of a single flag and focused on a common goal. We fly many different flags but we’re one group. We’re a family,” said Lt. Gen. Jaborandy. In addition to including 1,622 police, close to 1,550 local and international civilian personnel, and 150 United Nations volunteers, MINUSTAH’s original mandate authorized a military component of up to 6,700 military personnel from countries including Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Ecuador, El Salvador, France, Guatemala, Honduras, Indonesia, Jordan, Nepal, Paraguay, Peru, Philippines, Republic of Korea, Sri Lanka, the United States, and Uruguay, according to United Nations data. But these numbers have also varied according to the updated mandates under which the peacekeeping mission operates. “We live in a society of abundance, and because of it we must share our successful experiences and methods to aid in the development of a less fortunate society,” said Lt.

They have done excellent work to restore that nation which needs it so much. I support all the civilian and military people who put every effort into moving our brother country Haiti forward, which has been hit for so many years by nature and social ills. God bless that populace and those who collaborate with it. The matter of the peace force sent by the UN is great, where they give humanitarian assistance to poor countries that have suffered some kind of natural disaster. Haiti needs to be supported with industries that create jobs just as it is done in China This should not happen 🙂 A BEAUTIFUL EXPERIENCE AS A MEMBER OF THE 13TH CONTINGENT IN 2011, HELPING THE PEOPLE IN PARTICULAR THE CHILDREN OF BELLADER WHOSE LIVES WERE INTERRUPTED BY DISASTERS AND ILLNESS, BRINGING ME SOME VERY SAD MOMENTS THAT THIS BROTHER COUNTRY HAITI EXPERIENCED. Good day, magnificent information, I would please suggest better translation into Spanish, thank you. By June 2011, Haiti’s security situation had improved since the earthquake struck.

New York’s Cuomo pleads with Trump to acknowledge COVID-19 as ‘major problem’

first_imgNew York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Monday called on President Donald Trump to not be a “co-conspirator” of the coronavirus and acknowledge the “major problem” it poses as cases spiked in dozens of states after some rushed to reopen.The number of US coronavirus deaths exceeded 130,000 on Monday, following a massive surge of new cases that has put Trump’s handling of the crisis under the microscope and derailed efforts to restart the economy.”So, Mr. President, don’t be a co-conspirator of COVID,” Cuomo said at a news briefing. “Acknowledge to the American people that COVID exists, it is a major problem, it’s going to continue until we admit it and each of us stands up to do our part.” Cuomo said Trump was “enabling” the virus if he failed to acknowledge the severity of the situation, and slammed the president’s comments that the spike in US cases was due to increased testing.”He makes up facts. He makes up science,” Cuomo said, citing several past Trump statements on the virus such it would disappear like a miracle as the weather got warmer.”He said all those things, none of them were true,” Cuomo continued. “And now we have a problem in 38 states because some people believe him.”Cuomo said coronavirus hospitalizations in New York dropped to 817 – the lowest since March 18 – and nine people died from COVID-19 on Sunday.”The numbers have actually declined since we started reopening,” Cuomo said.Cuomo warned about complacency now that the worst seemed to be over in New York, pointing to reports of some July Fourth celebrations, including in Manhattan and on Fire Island and upstate, where revelers ignored social distancing and face covering rules.”That curve was purely a function of what we did,” Cuomo said. “If we change what we’re doing, you’re going to change the trajectory of the virus.” Topics :last_img read more
