Cmdr. Anthony Owens, who also served in the Navy.Owens was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. ALS affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord and led Owens to being in a wheelchair.“It really warms my heart to have everyone out here helping our family,” said Owens.Owens said that the Safe Harbor program has helped him through these trying times.“My life is not easy, but this program has really helped make it easier,” said Owens. “They really do a lot for me and go above and beyond.”The Navy Safe Harbor program is the Navy’s lead organization for coordinating the non-medical care of wounded, ill and injured Sailors and Coast Guardsmen and their families.Dedicated to non-medical needs, the organization’s management services are designed to fit each service member’s unique requirements like pay and personnel issues, lodging and housing adaptation, transportation, legal and guardianship matters.“This is all about trying to make the lives of our wounded brothers easier,” said Lt. Chad Hutchins, regional director, Navy Wounded Warrior-Safe Harbor. “It’s important that we take care of our own and let them know we will always be there for them and their family.”Sailors stationed aboard commands throughout Navy Region Northwest made the trip to Bellevue to help with the project.“We really want to show that we care about our community and our former shipmates,” said Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Handling) 3rd Class (AW) Chelsea Dell, junior enlisted volunteer coordinator, Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74). “They put in so much work for our country and the Navy, that it is our duty to help them in their time of need.”Safe Harbor also includes an enhanced command and control element to interact with Federal Recovery Coordinators and Fleet and Family Support Centers, assignment of non-clinical case managers to all major hospitals and fleet concentration areas, and enrollment-for-life protection for all Safe Harbor Sailors and Coast Guardsmen.[mappress]Press Release, August 20, 2013; Image: US Navy August 20, 2013 View post tag: Safe View post tag: Naval View post tag: US Back to overview,Home naval-today US Navy Sailors Participate in Safe Harbor Project View post tag: in View post tag: harbor Share this article View post tag: Navy View post tag: project Training & Education
Belgian Navy frigate BNS Louise Marie concluded her deployment to the EU-led migrant crisis operation in the Mediterranean Sea setting sail home on July 23.The multi-purpose frigate left operation Sophia after the scheduled 34 days of duties, despite calls for the frigate’s earlier withdrawal due to the mission’s perceived inability to reach set goals.The frigate operated near the coast of Libya contributing to a mission aimed at countering illegal arm and human trafficking. During her deployment, Louise Marie boarded a number ships in the area and took part in a rescue mission saving 118 migrants, including 1 newborn, 39 children and 6 women.BNS Louise Marie’s deployment was the third time Belgium has sent a frigate to operation Sophia.Louise Marie is a former Dutch Navy Karel Doorman-class frigate bought by the Belgian Navy in 2005 from the Royal Netherlands Navy as replacement for Belgian Navy’s old Wielingen-class frigates. Louise Marie was formerly known as HNLMS Willem van der Zaan.In 2009, the Netherlands and Belgium decided to modernize their M- frigates by rebuilding their hangar and helicopter decks to accommodate the NH 90 helicopters.

This playlist includes entirely acoustic tracks and those with acoustic elements.” There are selections from the band’s MTV Unplugged session, from the band’s comprehensive discography, and additional live cuts that span the band’s career.So sit back and enjoy some acoustic Pearl Jam for the next two hours.

Experiments in Place and Collaborative Documentary: UnionDocs’ Looking at Los Sures Director Diego Echeverria and UnionDocs artists will be in person Tuesday, Oct. 18, 7 p.m. at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts, room B-04, 24 Quincy St., Cambridge.In the late seventies and early eighties, South Williamsburg was one of the poorest neighborhoods in New York City. Largely Puerto Rican and Dominican, it was troubled by drugs and violence, full of abandoned real estate, and badly under-served. Los Sures, a documentary from 1984 by Diego Echeverria, skillfully represents the challenges of this time, while also celebrating a community that was connected, coherent, and full of culture.UnionDocs, a Center for Documentary Art based in South Williamsburg, has begun an investigation of the neighborhood that revisits Echeverria’s film and creates a constellation of companion documentary projects that update, annotate, challenge, and spiral off from the original. The result will be Looking at Los Sures, an interactive, multilayer online documentary project that seeks not just to extract important stories from the place, but to also create new shared histories, to deeply enhance local awareness, respect, and tolerance, and to facilitate relationships between neighbors.For this special event, Echeverria will be present to discuss his original film and respond to the contemporary work of UnionDocs. The program will include excerpts from the original and work from last year’s UnionDocs Collaborative Fellows.This screening and talk is presented by the Film Study Center with metaLAB (at) Harvard and is free and open to the public.

Actress/producer/singer/everything Rita Wilson stopped by The Today Show on February 27 to talk about her star turn in Fish in the Dark. Of course, we’re all being kept in the dark about what Larry David’s new play is about and despite host Matt Lauer hearing rumors that Wilson was the “weakest link” and might tell-all, it was not to be. What she did say about her co-star David was that “he is delivering whatever it is your expectation is of him….it’s not like he’s wearing a powdered wig and a waistcoat and talking in an English accent.” Wilson also revealed the one thing she always makes time for…and that her hubby Tom Hanks needs to clip his toenails (or something). Check out the interview below and Wilson in person at Broadway’s Cort Theatre.

Show Closed This production ended its run on Jan. 14, 2018 Related Shows Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Two-time Tony winner Christian Borle is in gobstopping demand! The Something Rotten! star, who is going on to headline the Broadway revival of Falsettos this fall, will then take on the role of Willy Wonka in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory in the spring. Directed by Jack O’Brien and choreographed by Joshua Bergasse, the previously announced reworked transfer of London’s hit tuner is set to begin previews in March 2017 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, the current home of Finding Neverland.This means that Borle could conceivably be up against himself for Best Actor in a Musical at the 2017 Tony Awards.”Christian was the first—and in truth—perhaps the ONLY person I could imagine to create the role of Willy,” O’Brien said in a statement. “His combination of child-like fantasy, edge, mystery, and sheer star power seemed destined for this role.”Borle took home a Tony Award in 2015 for his performance as a leather-clad Will Shakespeare in Something Rotten!. He also won in 2012 for Peter and the Starcatcher. His additional credits include Legally Blonde, Mary Poppins and Spamalot on Broadway and NBC’s Smash, The Sound of Music Live! and Peter Pan Live! on screen.Featuring a book by David Greig with music by Marc Shaiman and lyrics by Shaiman and Scott Wittman, the musical is based on Roald Dahl’s 1964 children’s book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Willy Wonka, world famous inventor of the Everlasting Gobstopper, has just made an astonishing announcement. His marvelous—and mysterious—factory is opening its gates…to a lucky few. That includes young Charlie Bucket, whose life definitely needs sweetening. He and four other golden ticket winners will embark on a mesmerizing, life- changing journey through Wonka’s world of pure imagination. Get ready for chocolate waterfalls, exquisitely nutty squirrels and the great glass elevator, all to be revealed by Wonka’s army of curious Oompa-Loompas.Dahl’s book was first adapted to the big screen in 1971 under the title Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, starring Gene Wilder. In 2005, Tim Burton directed a remake using the novel’s original title, with Johnny Depp playing Wonka.Further casting will be announced at a later date. The production will feature scenic and costume design by Mark Thompson, lighting design by Japhy Weideman, puppet design by Basil Twist and orchestrations by Doug Besterman. The West End staging officially opened at London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane on July 25, 2013, starring Tony and Olivier winner Douglas Hodge as Willy Wonka and helmed by Sam Mendes.
