Jane Austen opens “Emma” by writing that the title character lived her whole life “with very little to distress or vex her.”
Then, Emma met a distressing, vexing pandemic. When the Guthrie Theater began rehearsals on March 11, 2020, for a new stage version, company members were already getting texts from theater friends around the country whose shows had been canceled. Four days later, the show took a pause that stretched to more than two years.
Kate Hamill’s adaptation of Austen’s masterpiece has its world premiere Friday. Incredibly, its entire, geographically dispersed company remains intact.
“We described it as being like the string quartet on the deck of the Titanic,” joked director Meredith McDonough, who stayed here and bought a house, then sold it and moved back to the New York area. “Everyone’s phone alerts were: ‘Broadway is closed,’ ‘The Humana Festival is canceled.’ Somehow, we were still rehearsing, and it was like, ‘We will be the only show!'”
Hamill was supposed to shuttle between here and California for another play that was postponed. “We were one of about three shows I knew of that were still in rehearsal,” the playwright said.
Carman Lacivita, who plays Emma’s possible love interest Mr. Knightley, remembers asking stage manager Tree O’Halloran at that first rehearsal when she thought they’d shut down.
Maybe because of that cloud, a lot of work got done during those four days, with McDonough staging much of the screwball take on Austen’s tale of a 19th-century woman who believes she knows what’s best for everyone.
Many of the artists had collaborated previously — “Emma” is Lacivita’s fourth Hamill show — but even those who hadn’t, clicked. It was so fun that Hamill worried she couldn’t be objective because she was laughing until she cried at every rehearsal.
“Doing it felt so good. It was like, ‘If we pretend hard this isn’t all happening, it will work,'” said McDonough. “Then the Guthrie said, ‘We’re going to pay you all for another week while we figure out what’s happening.'”
Binge-watching in a bubble and debating the safety of travel, everyone grew closer. Lacivita stuck around an extra week, catching up on “Ozark” with McDonough. Hamill stayed eight weeks before she and husband Jason O’Connell, who joined her, chose an alternative to flying.
“We walked onto a lot and said, ‘We need to buy a car today.’ I think the guy thought we robbed a bank. We didn’t even haggle,” Hamill recalled. “The guy was like, ‘Oh, this is your first joint purchase as a married couple. Let me get the big red bow!’ And we were like, ‘You have unfortunately misread the situation. This is an escape car because we’re afraid to fly.'”
Most were confident that the play — commissioned by the Guthrie, with sets and costumes still unfinished — would eventually debut, but the hope was everyone would stay together.
“We’ve had a group text for these 2½ years. This is a group of humans who have stayed
Unveiled in June 2022, the Task GTP marks a return to stamina racing for Cadillac.

NEW YORK (AP) — Wall Street is back in the claws of a bear market as worries about inflation and higher interest rates overwhelm investors.
The Federal Reserve has signaled it will aggressively raise interest rates to try to control inflation, which is the highest in decades. Throw in the war in Ukraine and a slowdown in China’s economy, and investors have been forced to reconsider what they’re willing to pay for a wide range of stocks, from high-flying tech companies to traditional automakers. Big swings have become commonplace and Monday was no exception.
The last bear market happened just two years ago, but this would still be a first for those investors that got their start trading on their phones during the pandemic. Thanks in large part to extraordinary actions by the Federal Reserve, stocks have for years seemed to go largely in only one direction: up. The “buy the dip” rallying cry after every market slide has grown fainter after stinging losses and severe plunges in risky assets like cryptocurrencies. Bitcoin fell below $23,000 on Monday. The price for Bitcoin neared $68,000 late last year.
Here are some common questions asked about bear markets
WHY IS IT CALLED A BEAR MARKET?
A bear market is a term used by Wall Street when an index like the S&P 500, the Dow Jones Industrial Average, or even an individual stock, has fallen 20% or more from a recent high for a sustained period of time.
Why use a bear to represent a market slump? Bears hibernate, so bears represent a market that’s retreating, said Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at CFRA. In contrast, Wall Street’s nickname for a surging stock market is a bull market, because bulls charge, Stovall said.
The S&P 500, Wall Street’s main barometer of health, slid 3.9% Monday. The index fell an additional 0.5% as of midday Tuesday and is 22.2%
Courtney Vandersloot has been Julie Allemand’s greatest case in point in her young profession.
So when Allemand’s agent advised her in February that she would be portion of a 3-team trade that would have her actively playing driving Vandersloot on a workforce with back again-to-again title aspirations, she was offered.
4 months right after the trade and approximately two months right after the Sky opened coaching camp, Allemand arrived to an solely new WNBA practical experience.
“This is my first time [outside of the bubble],” stated Allemand, who was a rookie in 2020. “I really don’t even know what it is like to perform outdoors [of that environment]. Apply, person routines, vacation, all the things is new to me.”
The Sky have been just commencing to build a rhythm when Allemand arrived past week, becoming a member of her group on its 3-recreation East Coast vacation. The Sky are 3rd in the league standings behind the 1st-spot Las Vegas Aces and the Connecticut Solar.
Now that coach/standard supervisor James Wade’s crew is total, there will be some changes, starting with his rotation.
By means of the 1st 11 game titles of the season, Wade utilised Dana Evans with his second unit guiding Vandersloot, and she proved her price in that purpose. Evans led the team in scoring in the year opener in opposition to the Los Angeles Sparks with a profession-large 24 details. With no Allemand, Evans averaged 8.4 details and 2.6 assists in 18 minutes per sport.
In the two online games due to the fact Allemand arrived, she averaged 3.7 minutes.
That is way too little of a sample to point out what the Sky’s rotation will appear like. But Wade is confident that his gamers recognize the price in every of their roles.
“Everybody is sacrificing below,” Wade reported. “At the very same time, we’re discovering how to be winners, and that is the most important issue. We designed some thing with the coaching personnel, the players and leaders we have where persons will appear in and sacrifice for us.”
The players who haven’t purchased into that workforce-1st mentality haven’t lasted lengthy in Chicago, Wade explained.
But Wade knows egos are element of what will make the most talented athletes go. He’s trusting that his group method will supersede any ego-primarily based discontent.
So considerably, there has been no indication of players becoming sad with alterations in Wade’s rotation. Evans, especially, is concentrated on the long match.
“I know I want to be terrific,” Evans reported. “I want to be an All-Star one working day. To do that, you have to perform now. It’s a method, and I know I won’t be denied. I’ll constantly get the job done tricky, get superior and find techniques to get on the courtroom.”
Allemand echoed Evans, including that her goal is to enjoy whatsoever job will aid the Sky satisfy their purpose of winning again-to-back titles.

When Blizzard announced that the sequel to Overwatch would include a PvE element and a story campaign, I started thinking that Overwatch 2 would be a significant change to the experience. In the time since that announcement, however, the team-based hero shooter has only undergone more and more departures from what fans might have expected from the sequel.
Not only has the PvE been decoupled from the PvP mode, but Overwatch 2 is now making the transition to free-to-play, becoming a live-service title that Blizzard hopes to support with a seasonal structure, a new business model, and a content roadmap the likes of which Overwatch never did.
Want us to remember this setting for all your devices?
GameSpot spoke to Overwatch 2 director Aaron Keller about the big changes coming to the game. We discussed what the current state of the Overwatch development team is and how it has adjusted to meet the needs of the much more demanding seasonal and free-to-play model, as well as the rationale for removing loot boxes from the game. In our conversation, Keller also delved into the new hero, Junker Queen, who is one of three new heroes joining Overwatch 2 alongside Sojourn and a mysterious third support character at the game’s launch in October.
It’s been a bit of a challenge on numerous fronts to bring Overwatch 2 to where it is currently. What’s the mood of the team all these years into development and coming off the alpha?
Aaron Keller: This is a really exciting time for the
Not only are journey curbs ineffective at stopping the distribute of Covid-19, they also impede industry restoration.
That was the critical message from the Airports Council International
(ACI) Asia-Pacific, as it problems a statement that Japan’s cautious
reopening of its borders can be taken one particular step further with the finish
elimination of all intercontinental air journey constraints.
to the most current announcement from Japan’s Ministry of International Affairs,
Japan will divide nearly 200 countries into a few danger groups to

quarantine or be capable to go through a much more streamlined Covid-19 tests
These ongoing Covid-19 polices is expected by ACI Asia-Pacific to
“hamper the constructive immediate, oblique and catalytic influence that air
transport has on the nationwide overall economy.”
A examine unveiled by ACI Asia-Pacific showed that vacation limitations
have very tiny influence on protecting against the spread of any variant. Even if
limits are further tightened right after a new variant has been
imported into the place, it could just delay the surge in transmission
level by several times.
ACI Asia-Pacific opines that Japan really should concentrate on the important
direct and indirect costs to the overall economy instead of imposing travel
limits. The association suggests that vacation curbs really should be dropped
the moment conditions exceed the stage past which limitations wouldn’t make a
variance to the variety of bacterial infections.
“Analysis shows that travel limitations have, to a massive degree,
failed to protect against the unfold of Covid-19 and have turned out to be a
deterrent for the recovery of aviation,” explained Stefano Baronci, director
normal, ACI Asia-Pacific. “Over the earlier number of months, we have observed quite a few Asian nations slowly abolishing travel limitations and
have been successful in handling the circumstance without negatively
impacting the wellness treatment system at countrywide stage.”
we advocate the Govt of Japan to take into account eliminating all remaining
journey limitations and enable persons to vacation freely. A overall
peace of vacation protocols will provide bigger impetus to the
economy of the state as effectively of the other international locations in the location.”
The elimination of all remaining travel limitations will not only
deliver absolutely vaccinated passengers the liberty of motion, it will
also support enhance Japan’s financial state along with other countries in the
