Call it the ‘Disney Effect’ – after the fallout on the entertainment company fight with the Governor and the Florida Legislature About the so-called ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, many companies and their leaders are now far too scared to talk about challenges such as the ongoing assaults on reproductive rights and those of the queer community. But at a time when corporate silence on governments’ trampling on the rights of some citizens is deafening, Unilever Actions in process stand straight.

The giant CPG has just announced a plan that it says could improve the quality of life for LGBTQ communities across the United States, especially those in rural areas and queer people of color.

Editor’s note: Be sure to subscribe to our Brands Taking Stands newsletter, which appears every Wednesday.

By offering support to a variety of local partners, Unilever will help launch programs focused on issues such as tackling conversion therapy, HIV decriminalization, youth homelessness, anti-bullying campaigns, mental health and even nutrition programs focused on the LGBTQ community. Additionally, Unilever says it will lend a hand in tackling the anti-transgender legislation sweeping the US So far, the company has signed various campaigns which are urging state legislatures to stop enacting anti-LGBTQ and anti-trans laws.

This year, through its ongoing United We Stand campaign, Unilever will help kick-start these efforts and work with LGBTQ communities located in Monroe, Louisiana; Moore, Oklahoma; Clemson, South Carolina; Florence, Alabama; and throughout southern Missouri. The five zones are part of the U.S. municipalities that low score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Municipal Equality Index, meaning they lack support services and anti-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people.

The nonprofits and community groups that will implement these programs include local chapters of the Louisiana Forum for Equality, South Carolina Black Pride, and PFLAG.

This work is certainly more than many companies are offering, which is a rainbow slapped on the company logo and shown during Pride month, a symbolic gesture that has reached a point where many members of the queer community dismiss it as a “rainbow wash”.

“We continue to work closely with local organizations in areas where LGBTQI+ support is most needed,” Fabian Garcia, president of Unilever North America, said in an emailed statement to TriplePundit. “We have seen these organizations do meaningful work over the past year and we look forward to continuing to support their impactful programs through our United We Stand year-round campaign.”

The ‘Three’s Company’ actor onstage in ‘Straight White Men’ https://monroeswifts.org/the-threes-company-actor-onstage-in-straight-white-men/ Wed, 18 May 2022 13:56:24 +0000 https://monroeswifts.org/the-threes-company-actor-onstage-in-straight-white-men/ It’s a safe bet that when you see or hear the name Richard Kline, memories of his eight years as Larry Dallas on “Company of Three,” will come flooding back.

It’s a safe bet that when you see or hear the name Richard Kline, memories of his eight years as Larry Dallas on “Company of Three,” will come flooding back. Now Kline returns to Westport Country Playhouse in comedic satire, “Straight White Men», on stage from May 24th to June 5th.

Directed by Playhouse Artistic Director Mark Lamos and written by young Jean Lee, the first Asian American writer in Playhouse history, the play is set on Christmas Eve. A father invited his three adult sons home for pranks, Chinese takeaways and gossip. Between male bonding rituals and conversations about money, work and love, they are forced to come to terms with their own identity.

Kline plays Ed, the father, while Bill Army, Denver Milord and Nick Westrate play sons Jake, Matt and Drew respectively.

“It’s a homecoming for two of his three sons, as his eldest son, Matt, lives with him, but is a bit of a drift, making Xerox copies for the underdog,” Kline said. “Of the other two sons, one is a rich and successful banker and the other is a rich and successful author. There’s a dynamic between them and their Harvard-educated brother that doesn’t seem to fit in even at 40. .

The Westport Country Playhouse production of ‘Straight White Men’ centers on a widowed father and his three sons played by Denver Milord (left), Nick Westrate, Richard Kline and Bill Army.

What follows is a lot of humor and re-living of childhoods, and a bit of drama about why this third sibling is the way he is.

“The play is a daring, exuberant and very funny comedy – then towards the end it turns into a surprising dramatic punch that proves to be both powerful and moving,” Lamos said in a press release. “I’ve wanted to bring it to the Playhouse stage since it premiered at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theater Company in 2017.”

The play reunites Kline and Lamos, who were classmates at Northwestern University.


“I hadn’t seen him for many years before I did the show at the Playhouse about five years ago, but he didn’t direct that,” Kline said. “But it was the first time I had seen him since 1967, and I was thrilled to hear that he would be directing this one. I knew him as a terrific actor, but he became very remarkable as a director, and together we take a trip down memory lane.

Kline shared that he’s still recognized for his role on “Three’s Company,” and people often talk to him and ask him questions about the show, whether in person or on social media.

“The fact that the show is still airing is amazing to me since the last airing was in 1984, so it’s crazy,” he said. “I get photo requests all the time and it’s nice to meet people and share memories of the show. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to work with John Ritter, which was amazing. Plus, being on a show for eight years is an actor’s dream.

In 2015, the Westport Country Playhouse staged "And a nightingale sang" with Richard Kline (left), Sean Cullen, Jenny Leona, John Skelley;  seated, Deirdre Madigan, Matthew Greer, Brenda Meaney and director David Kennedy.

After “Three’s Company”, he appeared in several television shows, including his current recurring role as Judge Angioli in “Blue Bloods”.

Short story writer Ted Chiang and writer-producer Eric Heisserer are teaming up for the first time since their Oscar-winning collaboration, Arrival.

Heisserer produced the 1991 adaptation of Chiang’s story, Division by zerowhose rights have been scooped up by Luma Features, the longtime visual effects company now pushing development and production.

More from The Hollywood Reporter

Henry Dunham, who made his feature film debut at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival with the well-received thriller The Impasse at Sparrow Creekwill write the screenplay by adapting the original work and will direct the project.

Heisserer will produce under his Chronology banner, alongside Luma’s Payam Shohadai, Grady Gamble and Kyle Franke. Carmen Lewis of Chronology will executive produce. Franke will oversee production for Luma, which will fund development and production.

Zerooriginally appeared in Full Spectrum 3 Charger, chronicles what happens when the math no longer matches, once a math teacher discovers that 1 = 0. The revelation upends the universal foundation of math and society and ultimately the foundation of her relationship with her husband .

“Ted’s writing resonates with me, compels me to revisit his stories regularly,” Heisserer noted in a statement. “Division by zero was among my favorites, but I didn’t see how it could live on as an adaptation until Henry and I talked about it at length as mutual fans. I’m so excited to collaborate with Ted again and see Henry’s vision for this moving story come to life with the creative support of the artists at Luma.

Luma is a 20-year-old creative studio that got its start in visual effects, most recently working on films such as Tomorrow’s War, King Richard and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings as well as in the live events space. He is now making inroads into his own productions and is currently working on his first original film, The silence of mercy. Made in partnership with The Blast List Productions, the film is directed by Floria Sigismondi (runaways, The Handmaid’s Tale) and stars Annabelle Wallis and Raffey Cassidy.

Division by zero is precisely the type of creative, ambitious, and deeply poignant film we aspire to make at Luma,” said the company’s Chief Development Officer, Kyle Franke. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to support the incredible talents of Ted and Eric, a combination that has already proven magical, and a talented and up-and-coming filmmaker like Henry.”

Heisserer is the creator of the Netflix fantasy series, shadow and boneas well as the author of the Netflix hit, bird box. It earned a nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay for Arrivalthe sci-fi thriller directed by Denis Villeneuve.

Dunham is replaced by UTA, Anonymous Content and Stephen Clark of Lichter, Grossman. Chiang is replaced by WME and Janklow Nesbit.

The Ukrainian transmission network operator has suspended its contractual obligations to transport gas through one of its main gas pipelines with Russia due to enemy troop activity, which could reduce flows to Europe.

Ukraine’s gas transmission system operator said transit would stop at 7 a.m. Wednesday at the Sokhranivka point along the smaller of the two pipelines that bring gas from Russia. He said he was unable to carry out operations at a border compressor station in Luhansk – an area of ​​Ukraine that Moscow claims as an independent state – due to Russian occupation.

“The interference of the occupying forces in the technical processes and the changes in the modes of operation of the facilities of the gas transport system, including the unauthorized withdrawal of gas from the gas transit streams, have endangered the stability and security of the entire Ukrainian gas transportation system,” he said in a statement on Tuesday.

Ukraine’s gas transmission system operator said nearly a third of Russian supplies passing through the country to Europe would be affected, but it would still be possible to meet the needs of its European customers by redirecting the gas to the Sudzha connection point.

The Ukrainian gas pipeline operator has previously warned that damage to the system from the war could endanger flows, but this is the first time since the invasion that it has declared a case of force majeure, underlining the risks for Russian gas supply to Europe.

Last year, EU states imported 155 billion cubic meters of Russian gas, of which about 40 billion cubic meters passed through Ukraine. Nord Stream 1, the largest pipeline from Russia to Germany, has the capacity to transport 55 billion cubic meters.

The announcement of the shutdown pushed future contracts linked to the European wholesale gas price up nearly 6% on Tuesday to nearly €100 per megawatt-hour, reversing earlier losses.

Yuriy Vitrenko, general director of Ukraine’s state-owned gas company Naftogaz, blamed the Russian side. “Gazprom has been duly informed that Ukraine is no longer responsible for the transit of gas through Russian-occupied territories,” Vitrenko said.

Rushing down the runway, clambering over the wings and clinging to the fuselage even as a plane took off, there were extraordinary scenes at Kabul airport yesterday as desperate Afghans tried to flee the country occupied by the Taliban. The US administration is set to introduce vaccine boosters for most Americans amid rising delta variant cases. And Bob Dylan is at the center of a #MeToo case, but denies sexually abusing a young girl in 1965.

1 – Kabul disaster

Shocking scenes at airport as Afghans try to flee

Searing footage was released from Kabul International Airport yesterday where thousands of desperate Afghans flocked to try to secure flights out of the Taliban-occupied country. Footage showed people clinging to the fuselage of departing US planes, which continued to take off with people then falling from the sky. At least six people were killed in the chaos, revealing the terror many feel after the militant group took over. US President Joe Biden has defended his withdrawal, saying only that the fall of the Taliban happened faster than expected. Evacuation flights resumed today as Taliban leader Amir Khan Muttaqi was in talks to form a government. (Source: NYT, Washington Post, The Guardian)

2 – Boosters for all

Americans will need a third vaccine

After initially recommending vaccine boosters for at-risk populations, the Biden administration decided that all Americans should get a third shot. With the delta variant causing an increase in cases across the country, people may need additional protection around eight months after receiving their second injection. People who have received the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine will likely also need a booster. Some scientists say this is necessary because the effects of the vaccine may begin to wear off over time. The new policy, which will likely be announced this week, will depend on Food and Drug Administration approval. Third shots could be proposed by mid-September. (Source: Washington Post, NYT)

3 – Grace goes to Haiti

Tropical depression could cause landslides and floods in Haiti

The death toll from a massive earthquake in Haiti has risen to more than 1,400. Rescuers raced against time as Tropical Storm Grace was expected to bring heavy rains that could cause mudslides or flooding. Saturday’s 7.2 earthquake was worse in magnitude than the 2010 earthquake that killed some 200,000 to 300,000 Haitians. However, the epicenter was further from the capital, Port-au-Prince, so fewer lives were lost this time. Grace is set to dump 15 inches of rain in the worst affected areas today, with roads already damaged and some 30,000 families left homeless by the quake. (Source: BBC, The Guardian)

4 – On autopilot

Tesla under investigation after accidents

US auto safety regulators are investigating Elon Musk’s electric car maker Tesla after a series of crashes involving the driver assistance system. The 11 accidents included one fatal accident. But Musk defended the system, stressing that he still needs someone behind the wheel. Shares of the company fell sharply after the news, as such investigations can sometimes lead to recalls. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which is leading the investigation, reminded drivers that “no commercially available motor vehicle today is capable of driving itself”. Analysts believe the outcome of the investigation will likely be a software update. (Source: WSJ (Subtitle), AFP)

1 – Rock’n’Roll #MeToo

Dylan denies sexually abusing a girl

The #MeToo movement has sunk Hollywood producers and actors, but so far it hasn’t really hit beloved 1960s rock stars – the era notorious for sex and drugs. Everything changed after an anonymous woman sued icon Bob Dylan, who she claims sexually assaulted her in 1965 when she was 12. Dylan’s rep fired back, saying, “the 56-year-old’s claim is false and will be vigorously defended. The Connecticut woman says the “Blowin’ in the Wind” singer, now 80, gave her drugs and alcohol and abused her for six weeks. She seeks an indeterminate amount in damages.

2 – Always the moon

Bezos’ Blue Origin sues NASA over SpaceX

He went to the ends of space, now he goes to court. The world’s richest man, Jeff Bezos, is suing NASA after he awarded rival billionaire Elon Musk a contract earlier this year. Bezos’ company, Blue Origin, filed a lawsuit in federal court yesterday, claiming Musk’s SpaceX was wrongly awarded the contract to supply NASA’s lunar lander. Musk took to Blue Origin on Twitter, saying, “The sad thing is that even if Santa suddenly made his stuff free, the first thing you’d want to do would be cancel it.” Blue Origin’s court case could now delay NASA’s plans to land astronauts on the moon by 2024.

3 – Run dry

Lower Colorado River will lead to water cuts

The stern warning from climatologists last week that global warming is now irreversible can be seen around the world this year with unprecedented heat waves and wildfires. Yesterday, for the first time ever, the government declared a water shortage in the Colorado River due to drought caused by climate change. Water use will be restricted for the southwestern states. Lake Mead, America’s largest reservoir by volume, is at its lowest since filling in the 1930s and Lake Powell is at 32% capacity. The first water cuts will take effect in January, affecting Arizona and Nevada. (Source: CNN, Politics)

4 – life is a puzzle

The godfather of sudoku dies in Japan

Can’t get through the morning without coffee and sudoku? You have puzzle creator Maki Kaji to thank for that. The 69-year-old Japanese managing director of puzzle company Nikoli Co. died of cancer yesterday. Although Kaji invented sudoku in 1983, it didn’t become a hit at home or abroad until 2004 when the British newspaper The Times began publishing it. It is believed to be the most popular pencil puzzle in the world, although it is also available in digital format. Sudoku championships have been held in over 100 countries and the word is now in the English dictionary. (Source: PA, AFP)

5 – Afghan athletes face adversity

Paralympian can’t attend Tokyo Games

After the country fell to the Taliban this weekend, Afghan athletes find themselves in dire straits. Members of the country’s women’s soccer team say they fear for their lives, while the country’s first Paralympian will now be unable to attend games in Tokyo. Taekwondo athlete Zakia Khudadad was due to fly to Japan yesterday, but with chaos at Kabul airport as desperate Afghans tried to leave the country, she was unable to make it. The International Paralympic Committee has confirmed that neither Khudadad nor follow Paralympian Hossain Rasouli will be able to attend the event, which begins on August 24. (Source: AlJazeera, PA)

Turner’s experience and research offer valuable insights into healthcare facility planning and delivery
