Kiefer Sutherland Injured In Bus Mishap, Postpones Three European Music Tour Dates – Deadline

August 16th, 2019

In his role as agent Jack Bauer on TV’s 24, Kiefer Sutherland survived explosions, gunfire and all sorts of physical attacks. As the US President in Designated Survivor, he was spared from a massive explosion that took out most of the cabinet and Congress.

But in real life, he was just done in by some bus stairs.

Sutherland, touring Europe as a singer/songwriter, has postponed the last three shows of the tour because of what were described as serious injuries to his ribs sustained when he slipped on some bus stairs while traveling to Denmark for a performance.

Sutherland vowed to make up the dates this fall.  .

“[I] seriously injured a rib, making it difficult to breathe and impossible to sing,” he shared. “Regretfully, I will not be able to perform the last 3 shows of our tour, but have every intension [sic] of making up these shows in September / October when we return.”

“I am so sorry for any inconvenience that I have caused to the fans who bought tickets,” he added. “I will do everything I can to make it up to you. Thank you for your understanding. Sincerely, Kiefer.”

The make-up dates for the shows in Denmark and Gothenburg, Sweden will be “announced shortly.”

Sutherland released his new album, Reckless & Me, in April. He toured the US before heading to Canada, the UK, and several parts of Europe.

Blinded by the Light: This exuberant Bruce Springsteen musical wouldn’t exist without Brexit – CNET

August 16th, 2019

“It’s about Bruce. If you’re a Bruce fan you’ll see something different. And if not, you like it. You’ll love it. You might become a [Bruce] fan as a result of the film.”

That’s author Sarfraz Manzoor talking about the film Blinded By The Light which is based on his teenage years. Manzoor and director Gurinder Chadha both stopped by CNET to chat with us about the film which opens Aug. 16.

Blinded By The Light takes place in 1987 in Luton, England (think Milwaukee or Detroit in the US). Times are financially and politically hard with many people out of work and neo-facism on the rise. In the middle of all this is Javed (played by Viveik Kalra), a 16-year-old who dreams of being a writer despite his very traditional Pakistani family insisting he pursue a more sensible job.

Blinded By The Light opens Aug. 16 and stars (left-to-right) Nell Williams as Eliza, Viveik Kalra as Javed and Aaron Phagura as Roops.

During a moment of despair, a classmate gives Javed two Bruce Springsteen cassettes: Born In The USA and Darkness on the Edge of Town. Javed’s outlook on life transforms instantly. Springsteen’s music speaks more about the struggles he and his family face than the traditional Pakistani music his father devotedly listens to.

Blinded By The Light is the latest film from Chadha who is perhaps best known for her 2002 film Bend It Like Beckham — yeah the one with Keira Knightley. Blinded By The Light is as funny as it is authentic. Like Bend It Like Beckham, Chadha mixes humor (there’s a lot), hope, social activism and full on musical numbers into a wonderfully balanced and entertaining film.

Springsteen’s songs are expertly woven into the story sometimes quietly underscoring a scene and other times as full on musical numbers with singing and dancing by the cast. The film is shot through Javed’s eyes allowing the audience to feel as ignited by Springsteen’s lyrics and performances as he is.

The Boss’ lyrics speak to Javed like writings from a prophet. And I found myself for the first time in my life deeply connecting to Springsteen’s songs and wondering why I hadn’t before.

“We could have used any of the songs,” said Chadha during an interview at CNET. “I wanted to make sure we didn’t make a jukebox musical. I sat there with all the lyrics in front of me as I was doing the draft and made sure each lyric would fit Javed’s story.”

Now playing: Watch this: Blinded By The Light filmmakers talk Bruce Springsteen…


25:56

In one scene the lyrics to Promised Land — “take a knife and cut this pain from my heart” — are literally projected larger than life over the top of Javed. I don’t know if there will ever be a formal Bruce Springsteen musical or biopic, but Blinded By The Light is perhaps the best manifestation of his music you could hope for in a film. Hearing his songs played over a Dolby sound system is a real damn treat. Experiencing his music through this fresh perspective made me appreciate how much his lyrics resonate with our current politics, culture and economic struggles here in the US and UK.

Going back to Manzoor, most of what we see Javed go through actually happened to him. And in 2008, he wrote about his experiences growing up in a Pakistani family and becoming a Bruce fan in his book Greetings from Bury Park: A Memoir. For years, Chadha and Manzoor had loose plans to turn the book into a film, but it took a major political event to instigate the film actually being made.

“I didn’t want to repeat myself after Bend It Like Beckham and then Brexit happened,” said Chadha while sporting a Bruce Springsteen T-shirt. “I was so upset with all the xenophobia that was going on around us that I said, ‘I’ve got to do something about it.’ And that’s when I said, ‘We’ve got to make this film next.'”

At times, full on musical numbers break out in Blinded By The Light.

Warner Bros. Pictures

Blinded By The Light is exuberant and proudly embraces the themes of love, ambition and the importance of family. It’s a film that revels in the world of late-’80s British pop culture and fashions. There are copious amounts of teenage boys each sporting a single gold cross earring, jacket with shoulder pads, eyeliner and about a pound of Aquanet hairspray atop perfectly tamed mullets. One of my favorite moments: Javed wearing a plaid shirt with cutoff sleeves and a red bandanna tied around the neck dancing through a crowd of trendy big-haired teens who just stare back in horror.

What did Bruce Springsteen think of the film? According to Chadra, after a screening, “He walked over, gave me a kiss and put his arms around me and said, ‘Thank you for looking after me so beautifully. Don’t change a thing, I love it.'”

Second Human Case Of EEE Confirmed In Mass.; 10 More Towns Now At Critical Risk – CBS Boston

August 16th, 2019

WORCESTER (CBS) – The Massachusetts Department of Public Health confirmed a second human case of Eastern Equine Encephalitis in the state on Friday. Officials also raised the risk level for EEE to “critical” in 10 more towns in central and eastern Massachusetts.

The department said the new EEE case is in a man between the ages of 19 and 30 in Grafton. As a result, Grafton, Hopkinton, Northbridge, Shrewsbury, Southboro, Upton and Westboro are all at “critical risk” for EEE.

The wife of the Grafton man diagnosed with EEE says he is in his late 20s and lives near a farm. The couple asked not to be identified, but told WBZ he was diagnosed after having a seizure.

A goat in Bristol County has also tested positive for EEE, leading officials to put Easton, Norton and Raynham at critical risk as well. A total of 19 communities across the state are at critical risk now, and 18 are at high risk.

The department said it is working with local boards of health and mosquito control experts to work on “appropriate public health response activities.”

“The most intense level of EEE activity is still being seen in Bristol and Plymouth Counties,” said Public Health Commissioner Monica Bharel in a statement. “However, in active EEE years, the virus may move outside of southeastern Massachusetts. This is evidence of that movement, and residents in the area of increased risk should use mosquito repellent and avoid outdoor activities at night.”

Less than a week ago, the department confirmed the first human case of EEE in Massachusetts since 2013. The infected man is over 60 and lives in southern Plymouth County.

So far, EEE has been found in 288 mosquito samples.

“History, here in Massachusetts, the mosquitos test positive but the people don’t, so this is a little bit unusual,” said Dr. Michael Hirsh of the Worcester Division of Public Health.

He said weather may be to blame. “Whenever there is a winter that doesn’t have a really hard frost, if it’s much more mild, the mosquitoes don’t really ever knocked off from last year.”

Residents should make efforts to avoid mosquito bites, which can spread EEE, including using insect repellent, being aware of peak mosquito hours (dusk to dawn), wearing long sleeve shirts and pants when outside, drains standing water from around your home, repaid window screens and protect your animals from mosquitos.

EEE symptoms can range from a stiff neck, headache and lack of energy to dangerous complications like inflammation and swelling of the brain.

The risk of EEE will remain until the first killing frost.

Cochise Health officials warn of more mosquitoes – KVOA Tucson News

August 16th, 2019

Cochise County Health and Social Services officials say the Monsoon is bringing out more mosquitoes.

The weather increases the risk of getting diseases like the West Nile virus or encephalitis virus, County officials said through a press release. They added some parts of Arizona are seeing more cases of West Nile Virus.

117 cases of West Nile Virus have been reported in the Maricopa, Pinal and Yuma, counties this year. That’s compared to just one case in 2018 and 40 cases in 2017.

“Viruses are transmitted from person to person through an infected mosquito bite – a mosquito bites someone infected with the virus and becomes infected itself, then bites healthy people and infects them,” according to the press release.

“Symptoms for the most common diseases can start about one week after the bite and can include fever, chills, rash, joint/muscle pain, body aches, nausea, and vomiting. For most diseases spread by mosquitos, there are no vaccines or cures available.”

If bitten by a mosquito and the mentioned symptoms happen, County officials advise people to go see a doctor immediately.

Cochise County health officials say to help protect yourself you should:
• Wear bug spray, preferably with 30% DEET or stronger. Reapply as the day goes by.
• Make sure open doors and windows have intact screens.
• Wear long sleeves and long pants when outdoors.
• Remove standing water around the house and yard (such as old tires, birdbaths, flowerpots, children’s pools).
• Protect yourself from mosquitoes while traveling to areas where these viruses are prevalent.

Home explosion, fire taking a toll on London, Ont., neighbourhood: fire official – Sudbury.com

August 16th, 2019

LONDON, Ont. — A gas explosion and a large fire that triggered the evacuation of a London, Ont., neighbourhood has taken an emotional toll on the community and first responders, one of the city’s top fire officials said Friday as residents returned to their homes.

Seven people were injured and residents of 100 homes had to leave after a vehicle slammed into a home and hit a gas line, setting off the explosion Wednesday night. The fire sparked by the blast spread to several homes and at least two residences had to be demolished Friday, the city said.

“It’s been very traumatic for everybody involved,” said Jack Burt, the city’s acting deputy fire chief, adding that mental health workers have been made available to residents and first responders.

“We’re really working to make sure these people can get their lives back together,” said Burt. “We want to try to do everything we can to lessen their trauma.”

All but 10 of the 100 home evacuated were declared safe by Friday, and Burt said the fire department was working as quickly as possible to clear the scene.

He said some of the homes deemed unsafe can be repaired while others are “severely damaged” and may have to be bulldozed. Burt said the homes demolished on Friday were beyond repair.

The city said it would provide accommodation for those who were unable to return home.

“The vast majority of residents are now safely back inside their homes and clean-up work in the surrounding areas continues,” said London Mayor Ed Holder. “We recognize, however, this is just the first step in what will be a long period of recovery.”

A Facebook group for the London neighbourhood is filled with posts from the community offering up food and clothes to those affected and nearby businesses are offering their services free of charge. Multiple GoFundMe campaigns have also been launched.

“This neighbourhood really banded together to make sure everyone was OK,” said Burt. “It’s a true testament to this neighbourhood’s community spirit and it makes me very proud.”

London police said Daniella Alexandra Leis, a 23-year-old woman from Kitchener, Ont., was charged with impaired driving in connection with the incident.

The seven people injured were four firefighters, two police officers and one civilian. Burt said one firefighter was still in hospital in serious condition.

Former Edmonton Eskimos CEO gets new job among flurry of Alberta government appointments – Global News

August 16th, 2019

Rhodes has been named the new chair of the Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis commission.

Watch below: Some Global News videos about Len Rhodes.

The appointment is part of a long list of changes announced Friday by Premier Jason Kenney’s UCP government to governing boards ranging from health to advanced education and human rights.

Former Conservative member of Parliament James Rajotte is joining the board of directors of the University of Alberta.

And five new tribunal members have been named to Alberta’s Human Rights Commission.

The province says it’s also reducing the size of the Workers’ Compensation Board governing panel to seven members from 10, but is not changing the balance of representatives for workers, employers and the public.

Opposition NDP critic David Eggen said the move is a backward step and rewards political cronies and party donors.

Eggen said the previous NDP government installed a more transparent merit-based appointment system that is being thrown out by the UCP.

“More than 14,000 regular Albertans have lost their jobs over the past two months, while Premier Kenney is making sure his failed candidates, defeated MLAs and legacy donors get board appointments,” Eggen said.

Health dept links 2 cases of Legionnaires’ disease to Schaumburg hotel – WGN TV Chicago

August 16th, 2019
Please enable Javascript to watch this video

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. — The Illinois Department of Public Health has linked two confirmed cases of Legionnaires’ disease to a suburban hotel.

The IDPH released a statement Friday saying it the cases were linked guests who stayed at the AmericInn by Wyndham Hotel in Schaumburg in July and August.

“Both confirmed cases reported use of water in their guest rooms, the hot tub, and pool during hotel stays in July and August 2019,” the statement said.

The AmericInn voluntarily closed its hot tub and pool as the IDPH continues to investigate.

The hotel is contacting all guests who have stayed there since June 13th to today and  instructing them to contact the Cook County Public Health Department if they have been sick or are ill with respiratory symptoms.

According to the health department’s statement, “Legionnaires’ disease is a serious lung infection (pneumonia) that people can get by breathing in small droplets of water containing Legionella bacteria. It is not transmitted person-to-person. Outbreaks are most commonly associated with buildings or structures that have complex water systems, like hotels, hospitals, long-term care facilities, and cruise ships. The bacterium can become a health concern when it grows and spreads in human-made water systems, like hot tubs, cooling towers, hot water tanks, large plumbing systems, and decorative fountains.”

Additional information about Legionnaires’ disease can be found on the IDPH website and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.
