I’m reading animation books and also Kai Althoff’s “And Then Leave Me to the Common Swifts." — Jocelyn, Warsaw
GREEN Two ways. The story of “Tootsie” has been substantially reworked, in part to make its gender politics more palatable and also, of course, to make it a musical. (It’s now set in the world of New York theater, not soap operas.) And there’s no overestimating the change that songs make, especially the angular, urban, angsty, joke-filled ones by David Yazbek. Obviously CALLISTO and GANYMEDE are beneath contempt. They are what we call greasy-spoon moons. Worst food in the solar system!
But as part of a plan conceived by Freddie Gershon, a music executive, and joined by Mr. Swid and another partner, Ira Smith, a revamped Sesac would find ways to pay songwriters more than they were getting from Ascap and BMI. The Sparrow Tavern, 24-01 29th St., Astoria
Standing in the backyard of his house where the sun room had been ripped off its foundation, Joe Geoghagan, 76, said, “They’re all Mexicans. You can’t get nobody else to work.” Hiring them, he added, “doesn’t bother me one bit. I’m too old to crawl on top of a house.” How a stock trades in its debut is often used to gauge the success of the offering and investor sentiment about a company. If a stock falls below its I.P.O. price on the first day or even in the weeks that follow, the offering is considered a flop — a red flag that investors have concerns about a company’s outlook.
At 220 Central Park South, between 58th and 59th Streets, an apartment on the 35th floor was acquired for .5 million, while another on the 39th floor sold for .8 million. Park’s character, Marcus, is another kind of movie unicorn: the stay-at-home stoner. Not like Harold or Kumar — a grown Asian-American man who wakes and bakes, plays in a band and has no intention of rethinking his priorities. This person exists, of course. Wong dated him for like two years. “I loved his integrity,” she said — the sheer purity of his drive to do nothing. “He was a really good guy. He was just stuck.”
“She said, ‘Dad, don’t tell me we’re in Mexico,’” he recalled. “Because she’d gone past the fence.” A vast majority of Europeans want change, but that desire can manifest in very different ways. In the Netherlands, for example, voters in provincial elections in March came out to support an anti-migration, right-wing party. The same month, Slovaks elected a liberal woman as president after many years of their country’s being regarded as an unbreakable populist stronghold. Both were votes against the status quo, but in the Netherlands the mainstream parties were considered the status quo, while in Slovakia it was the populists.
Seven years later, these microchips had yet to find their market niche, and Texas Instruments’ president at the time, Patrick E. Haggerty, decided that the company needed to prove its worth with a consumer product. He called for a pocket calculator. He has helped dozens of captains navigate through storms and heavy rain, fog and other inclement weather. His job also involves forecasting the weather weeks ahead, to help the company’s shoreside and shipboard teams decide if they should cancel, reroute or reschedule cruises.
At least four million Venezuelans have fled their country in recent years, forced out by hunger, hyperinflation and deadly political crackdowns. By next year, their departure could outpace the migration from Syria to become the world’s largest refugee crisis, according to the Organization of American States. Of total assets of at least .4 billion listed in the financial disclosure report, more than a third is tied to the Trump Organization’s golf clubs and resort business. These businesses generated more than half of the minimum of 4.9 million he reported in total revenues.
