Governor’s Office Anticipating COVID-19 Clusters As Colleges Reopen

first_imgVia SUNY JCC / Facebook.ALBANY – As local colleges welcome students back on campus, the Governor’s Office is preparing for what to do in case there is an outbreak of COVID-19.Governor Cuomo says the state is anticipating clusters of COVID-19 outbreaks to happen once students head back into their college classrooms.Because of this, the state has designated a threshold that says colleges must go remote for two weeks if there are 100 COVID-19 cases, or the number of cases on campus equals 5% of their population or more.Ultimately Cuomo says whichever scenario happens first will lead to the college going remote for at least two weeks. “We should anticipate clusters. When you have large congregations of people, anticipate a cluster. We know that. Also, that’s what we’re seeing, you see it around the country. Be prepared for it, get ahead of it,” Cuomo said.If a college has to go remote, students who live on campus can stay on campus, Cuomo says.This announcement comes as some Western New York colleges are seeing their own positive COVID-19 cases.

Lessons of the Week! Bradley Cooper, Audra McDonald & More

first_img View Comments Ladies and gents, we have an important announcement: In case you haven’t heard, it’s Friday! That means it’s time to do this, this and this. And of course, it’s time for the Lessons of the Week. As usual, a ton of crazy stuff happened in the last seven days—check out what we learned below.Bradley Cooper Has a Big TrunkWe thought Cooper was starring in The Elephant Man, but apparently we were wrong. Lesli Margherita tweeted, “Lady asked me if I knew where ‘Bradley Cooper Elephant Show’ theater is. Gave directions & said I hope she gets 2 c his trunk.” Full trunk-al nudity?! This show has everything!Idina Menzel Likes Classy Daytime DatesNews flash, Fanzels—the If/Then star is ready to start dating! There’s only one problem: Her schedule doesn’t allow for dinner dates, and she doesn’t want to do any “slutty” dates after midnight. So she’s basically Cinderella with better shoes.Neverland Has Found Matthew MorrisonGlee’s Matthew Morrison is quitting school and flying into Finding Neverland alongside Kelsey Grammer and Laura Michelle Kelly. Yes, we know Jeremy Jordan would also have been great. But don’t worry, Neverland producer Harvey Weinstein is also behind The Last Five Years movie and Jordan’s definitely in that. See, you’re smiling!Hugh Jackman Is a Bloody Good ActorStarring on Broadway is a dangerous job. Hugh Jackman guts a real fish onstage in The River, and he’s accidentally cut himself not once, but twice—he even had to get five stitches! Bloody good show, Hugh, but we like you with all 10 fingers, OK?Alysha Umphress’ Annie Had BoobsTo play Annie, you need dimples, red hair and a killer belt voice. On the Town’s Alysha Umphress possesses these things in spades, but she also had something else when she played the adorable orphan: Boobs! Well, you know what they say…you’re never fully dressed without a training bra.NBC Can’t Handle the TruthIf there’s one thing we love, it’s yelling at the TV. If there’s another thing we love, it’s tweeting while yelling at the TV. So naturally, we’re psyched NBC might be doing a live broadcast of A Few Good Men. You want the telecast? You want the telecast? YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TELECAST!Wanna Be Like Nancy Opel? Schmooze.Honeymoon in Vegas star Nancy Opel has been around the Broadway block 13 times, so when she doles out advice, we listen. Her tips: Make as many connections as possible and compliment Stephen Sondheim whenever you can. Hey Steve, you’re awesome! Now can we be on Broadway?Duck Dynasty: The Musical Is a ThingWe’re running out of books and movies to turn into musicals, so it’s time to make reality TV shows sing and dance! After The X Factor tuner, the Robertson family is coming to the Vegas stage. What’s next, Shark Tank? Hoarders? My Strange Addiction? All of the above, please.Tracey Ullman’s In Love with a CowThe Band Wagon star Tracey Ullman has fallen head over heels for her bovine co-star in the Into the Woods movie, a real cow named Tug. She was so sweet, Ullman is forgoing burgers in her honor. Tracey, there are a lot more animals where that came from if you come back to Broadway.Audra McDonald Knows How to Boil EggsYahoo! Answers guru Audra McDonald sings the answers to all sorts of queries, but unless they’re about Broadway or her Westchester compound Eggfartopia, we’re never sure if we can trust her. Well, this week, we’re in luck! An egg question! Thanks, Audra, that’s eggggggsactly what we wanted to know. Eggggggcellent.last_img read more

B’way Community Pays Respects, Shares Memories of the Late David Bowie

first_imgRock icon David Bowie died at the age of 69 on January 10, following a long battle with cancer. The boundary pusher and trailblazer of glam made a tremendous impact on artists of all mediums—theater included. Bowie performed on Broadway himself as a replacement headliner in The Elephant Man. In his final years, the ultimate multi-hyphenate also composed for the stage. Lazarus, a musical riff on the 1963 novel and 1976 Bowie-led film The Man Who Fell to Earth, is currently playing off-Broadway’s New York Theatre Workshop through January 20 and features original Bowie numbers and new arrangements of his famous works. His music video for the title number was released just earlier this month.Numerous members of the Broadway community took to social media to pay their respects to the otherworldly performer. Take a look at what some had to say below. [View the story “Broadway reacts to the death of David Bowie” on Storify] View Commentslast_img read more

Cotton Nearing Final Exam

first_imgA brave new cotton is getting mixed reviews as its first big Georgia harvestapproaches. But any critique is too early until all the cotton is picked, says aUniversity of Georgia Extension Service expert.”We still have many growers who are very happy with the product,” saidPhillip Roberts, an extension entomologist. “However, we also have some who aredispleased. But we won’t really be able to evaluate it until the harvest is in and we knowwhat kind of yields we’ve got.”The new cotton is a modern wonder. Using genetic engineering, scientists inserted agene from a bacterium, Bacillus thuringiensis, into cotton plants. This Bt geneallows the plant to produce a toxin common in nature. In a sense, the new cotton grows itsown insecticide.The toxin is deadly to tobacco budworm and helps control corn earworm, the two maininsect pests of Georgia cotton.So far, growers’ assessment of Bt cotton varies from place to place. But Roberts saidit’s not over until the cotton is picked. The harvest is Bt cotton’s final exam.”We may still have better yields with Bt cotton because of the bollworm control itprovides,” he said. “So we can’t really give it a final grade until then.”The Boll Weevil Eradication Program chased the worst cotton pest, the weevil, out ofGeorgia by 1994. “Since then, our farmers have spent more money controlling tobaccobudworm and corn earworm than all others combined,” Roberts said.The two caterpillars are both called bollworms when they attack cotton.”You really can’t distinguish between the two when they’re small,” Robertssaid. “When they’re adults, though, you can.”Bt cotton made its debut this year across the cotton belt. The seed cost growers morethan normal varieties. But they figured to come out ahead, since they wouldn’t have tospray costly insecticides to control bollworms.That hasn’t been entirely true, partly because of an oddity among bollworms.”Tobacco budworm is more susceptible to Bt than corn earworms,” Roberts said.”Normally we have a fairly even mix between the two. But this year the population isskewed heavily toward corn earworms.”No one knows what happened. “Something happened over a large area of the cottonbelt that reduced tobacco budworm populations,” Roberts said. “But we don’t knowwhat that was.”The result is that Bt cotton’s control of bollworms has disappointed some growers.”We have some Bt cotton that hasn’t been sprayed at all for bollworms,” hesaid. “In other areas, growers have had to spray once, and sometimes twice.”Statewide, Roberts said, farmers have had to spray for bollworms in about a fourth ofthe Bt cotton. “One of the things we’ve learned this year,” he said, “isthat Bt cotton isn’t immune to bollworms.”Some conventional cotton fields haven’t had to be sprayed this year. Others have beensprayed up to six times. The state average, Roberts said, is probably around three sprays.If Bt cotton does prove successful, it could add to the supply U.S. farmers grow. Butit may not affect the price of cotton products at the store.”The main benefit would be a lower cost to farmers,” Roberts said. “Thatwould give them a better profit for all the work and risk of growing cotton.”last_img read more
