This year, the news agency decided to include regional and state rankings along with the national recognition.Deaconess is ranked second among Indiana hospitals while Saint Vincent Evansville Campus tied for third.U.S. News and World Report uses a complex system to rank the hospitals. One of the major criteria is specialized care. Both hospitals get high marks in things like pulmonary and urology care. As well the rankings look at individual conditions and treatments.Hospital presidents agree that by providing top quality care it makes it easier for the community. Instead of having to drive up to large regional hospitals, folks who are struggling with their heath can just stay in the Tri-State to get the care they need.

Reporting in New Year, new opportunity

first_imgAfter a difficult second half of 2008, I know I’m not the only one hoping for a better year ahead. Unfortunately, it looks like the economy will be getting worse before it gets better. That means more tough times ahead for FPB members.The FPB runs a helpline for members to call when they need advice and information on running their businesses. Over the past three months, the biggest increase in calls has been from members asking for assistance with employment-related issues, including redundancies.Owner-managers of small businesses are generally good at the one-to-one relationships that make a business work, but with a disciplinary or conduct issue, it is so important that the correct procedures are followed from the start. Also, concerns about whether or not to employ staff are being complicated by legislation on the horizon.In April, the right to request flexible working hours will extend to parents with children up to the age of 16. The government will also be implementing the EU’s Directive on Temporary Agency Workers in the next few months, which may be an issue for those bakeries and shops that use agency staff for periods of longer than three months. In the meantime, the FPB will be working to make sure that businesses have the know-how and support to cope with this legislation and other employment issues. Regulations change every year, so you need to be sure you have the most up-to-date and accurate guidance.In the meantime, let me wish you a Happy New Year and all the best for 2009 from the FPB.last_img read more

HGCA celebrates wheat export milestone

first_imgHGCA has worked under its milling wheat export classifications ukp and uks for 10 years.It will celebrate the milestone at this year’s Cereals event on 11 to 12 June in Duxford, Cambridgeshire.The classifications were rolled out in 2004, following repeated industry consultation to help establish and maintain export markets for UK milling wheat. They were developed to meet the specific requirements of export markets and now form part of the HGCA Recommended List.Ukp is a hard wheat classification used in the making of bread and uks is a soft wheat classification used for making biscuits or blending for bread-making. Since the new classifications came in, wheat from UK growers has been exported to 53 different countries with 20 ukp and 31 uks varieties have been listed on HCGA’s Recommended List.Sarah Mann, HGCA’s exports manager, said: “Over the past 10 years, 23.2 million tonnes of wheat have been exported from the UK. With typically 16% of wheat going for export each year, it is essential that HGCA continues to grow new markets for grain by adding value to surplus production, while developing and maintaining export markets. This is a long-term initiative which involves HGCA working alongside industry to ensure our supply chain meets the demands of overseas buyers.”last_img read more

A classic play, a modern tragedy

first_imgFor the past four years, the social justice-oriented troupe the Theater of War has brought together the worlds of ancient Greece and contemporary American Midwest in “Antigone in Ferguson,” created after Black teenager Michael Brown was shot and killed in 2014 by white police officer Darren Wilson.This year, the COVID-19 pandemic brought the production team’s work online, creating virtual performances of Sophocles’ 2,500-year-old text and honoring Brown’s memory.Dated to 442 or 441 B.C., “Antigone” tells the story of Oedipus’ daughter and her quest to honorably bury her brother Polynices, killed during a civil war, against the decree of her uncle Creon, Thebes’ new king. The play deals with themes of divine justice and human law, family and civic loyalty, and gendered power dynamics. In the Theater of War production, which premiered in 2016, actors perform a staged reading of the work alongside a chorus of community members; the reading is followed by a facilitated public discussion about racism and police violence.On Friday, Theater of War will mount their second digital performance of “Antigone in Ferguson,” sponsored by Harvard’s departments of Theater, Dance & Media and the Classics, as well as other universities, including Duke and Georgetown. A related artist talk and Q&A session with Bryan Doerries and Phil Woodmore, respectively the show’s artistic director and composer/conductor, will take place Monday and is open to affiliates of Harvard affiliates and other sponsoring institutions.This week’s production features a one-hour reading of “Antigone” with actors including Tracie Thoms and Nyasha Hatendi, as well as New York Public Advocate Jumaane Williams. The performance also includes music from the “Antigone in Ferguson” choir, led by De-Rance Blaylock, a former teacher of Michael Brown. Doerries and social worker De-Andrea Blaylock-Johnson will facilitate a community panel discussion on the play’s themes and their connection to racism and police violence, with a panel that includes Shamell Bell, a Harvard lecturer on somatic performance and contemporary global performance. “Michael Brown was not the thug that everyone claimed him to be … he was a kid who just graduated from high school and was ready to take care of business when it came to his life.” — De-Rance Blaylock For many involved in “Antigone in Ferguson,” the Theater of War production was personal: Both lead vocalist Blaylock and soloist Duane Foster taught Brown at Normandy High School, where the show premiered.“His murder took a huge toll on me,” said Blaylock, who now sings professionally in St. Louis. “So when I was given this opportunity to be a part of ‘Antigone in Ferguson,’ I jumped on the chance, because I wanted to let people know that Michael Brown was human. Michael Brown was not the thug that everyone claimed him to be. He was a human being, he was a kid who just graduated from high school and was ready to take care of business when it came to his life.“To be able to perform Greek mythology and compare it to what happened to Mike is amazing. To hear the responses from so many people around the world and still [be] hearing responses from people who saw our previous performance in August is amazing,” she said. “I’m glad that his name and his life are not, and were not, in vain.”Naomi A. Weiss, Gardner Cowles Associate Professor of the Humanities, and Debra Levine , a lecturer on Theater, Dance & Media, spearheaded Harvard’s sponsorship of the production. They said they wanted to support a project that engaged audiences with classical texts at the same time it offered an avenue for artistic expression and community engagement on urgent social issues.,“The play itself is so fertile because its messages regarding justice, gender, and death are quite ambiguous. It’s quite difficult to disentangle,” said Weiss, the Gardner Cowles Associate Professor of the Humanities, noting that “Antigone” has been used in many media in the 21st century to explore questions of power and resistance. “I think that’s also what makes the production of ‘Antigone in Ferguson’ potentially very powerful, because it gives rise to these questions of interpretation, which can then hopefully challenge and complicate our views and actions concerning racialized violence and social injustice.”Weiss highlighted the importance of the chorus, which is made up of educators, police officers, faith leaders, and activists from St. Louis and New York City. While separated by the pandemic, the chorus continued their work over Zoom for the performances, including Woodmore’s powerful hymn “I’m Covered.”“These sorts of performances are very powerful, precisely because of the chorus. When these plays were originally performed in Athens … the chorus sang, and it danced, and it was made up of community members. So, in the ancient context, there’s a very strong connection between the audience and the chorus,” said Weiss. “It’s striking that ‘Antigone in Ferguson’ not only embraces the musicality and musical potential of the chorus, but also embraces its role as a communal voice and how the audience could have a deep relationship with it. That then works in turn to make the questions the production raises much more powerful.”Levine added that her department welcomed the chance to share resources to convene an audience for “Antigone” and help ensure that Brown’s life is remembered.“Theatrical collaborations that include community members and professional actors, that bring in gospel choruses and classical Greeks texts and Q&A conversations, are ways to imagine assembly differently, rather than valuing the work only as a perfectly realized aesthetic object,” said Levine. “I think that letting go of those aesthetic and commercial values and having different goals for what online performance can achieve helps us understand what is and is not successful about digital performance. The best digital performances help us transcend our feelings of isolation during the pandemic.”“Antigone in Ferguson” is designed to prompt serious and uncomfortable conversations about societal problems, but for Blaylock, it is also a space for healing.“I dedicate every performance to Mike, because I would not have this platform if it weren’t for his life and death,” she said. “I use my gifts and let people know that even throughout this pandemic, we still have to maintain that there is a little bit of hope left.”last_img read more
