Les Miz Flag-Waver Kyle Scatliffe on Why He’d Make a Terrible Ninja

first_img Age: 27Hometown: Westwood, NJCurrent Role: Waving the flag as Enjolras, student revolutionary, in the Broadway revival of Les Miserables.Stage Cred: Coalhouse Walker in Ragtime in Austin, Jud Fry in Oklahoma! in Seattle and Haywood Patterson in the London premiere of The Scottsboro Boys, a role that just earned him an Olivier Award nomination.“I grew up around Italians, so I talk with my hands all the time. If I’m talking and I start getting passionate about what I’m saying, my hands just start flying around. Big hand talker.”“People in high school would tell me they can hear me coming down the hallway. I have a big laugh. They’d be like, ‘Is Kyle here?’ and you’d hear ‘HAHAHA’ and they’d be like, ‘Kyle’s here.’ It’s like a warning signal. I’d be a terrible ninja.”“I’m 6’5″. When I was a kid, I was 5’7” and I played basketball. But I stopped ’cause it’s not the best height for basketball. Then, out of nowhere, I grew over the summer to six feet and then 6’1” by 11th grade. Everyone was like, ‘Hey, you should come back and play basketball!’ And I was like, ‘I think I like theater more so I’ll see you guys later!”“I was leaving on a Disney cruise when I got cast in The Scottsboro Boys. I would play villains in their Villains Tonight! show. I’d do Hades from Hercules, Jafar from Aladdin… But the best to play was Scar, because The Lion King is my favorite.”“A black kid in Hawaii messaged me after I got the part of Enjolras. He played the role there and was really happy to see that someone could play the part on this scale. It was surreal for me and I thought, ‘This is what Barack Obama must have felt like,’ because when he was voted President, all black people said, ‘Wow, a black person can be President!’”“I stopped moving when I first saw the Enjolras vest and just went ‘Ooh!’ I ran into the boys dressing room and was like, ‘The vest! The vest!’ I was very excited to put it on!” Related Shows Kyle Scatliffe Kyle Scatliffe photographed at the Paramount Hotel for by Caitlin McNaney Star Filescenter_img View Comments Show Closed This production ended its run on Sept. 4, 2016 Les Miserableslast_img read more

Keep an eye on international laws (GDPR)

first_imgAll of us have been bombarded recently with those updates on our mobile phones and on the various websites asking us to accept the new privacy terms.  Very few of us take the time to actually read those, myself included, instead opting to “click the box” and move on to where you want to be. Many of these recent updates, however, are driven by the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) which went into effect in Europe on May 25, 2018.  Which brings us to the question, how is it that a European regulation is governing the conduct of U.S. businesses, including U.S. credit unions, and why do I have to comply with a European regulation when I already have privacy laws governing me in the U.S.?  These questions do not have simple, easy answers, but it is clear that the European Union is attempting to extend its influence beyond its borders and is setting a new and higher standard in the data privacy/data protection arena. By way of background, the EU GDPR applies whenever an entity (such as a credit union) processes the personal data of an EU resident when offering them goods or services; or when you monitor the behavior of an EU resident; or where a country’s public law provides for it.  Any of these potential jurisdictional thresholds warrant extensive discussion, but basically the more contacts you have with EU residents or businesses or perhaps a physical presence in the EU, the more likely you will be subject to the GDPR. This is why, with our world becoming increasingly connected through the internet and otherwise, big tech companies such as Google, Amazon, and Facebook, with their extensive data collection activities and global focus are being dramatically affected by this regulation (hence the increase in those privacy update requests).So, yes, as a credit union you will need to pay attention to certain international regulations and look closely at your operations in the United States to figure out if this EU regulation affects your credit union and whether this regulation can be enforced against your credit union.  Further, with the publication of the ePrivacy regulation as a proposal text (affecting electronic communications such as email, instant messaging, electronic marketing, etc.) which will round out the EU data protection framework, the compliance picture will likely get more complicated.  To that end, it could have been much worse.  WOCCU was active during the development of this regulation in urging the elimination of registration requirements and fees, and flexibility in who can be a data protection officer (such as a BSA officer) under the regulation.  Also, there are still ways to ensure compliance with the EU regulation without having to significantly alter your operations (i.e. through contractual provisions, the Privacy Shield). So don’t ignore those international laws from some far off place.  Keep an eye on them. The world isn’t that big any more.

China shows off COVID-19 vaccines for first time

first_imgTopics : They are also touting progress on domestic vaccines as a sign of Chinese leadership and resilience in the face of an unprecedented health threat that has pummeled the global economy.In May, President Xi Jinping pledged to make any potential vaccine developed by China a “global public good”.The potential vaccines on display are among nearly 10 worldwide to enter phase 3 trials, typically the last step ahead of regulatory approval, as countries race to stub out the virus and reboot battered economies.Sinopharm said it anticipates the antibodies from its jab to last between one and three years — although the final result will only be known after the trials.China’s nationalistic tabloid Global Times reported last month that “the price of the vaccines will not be high”.Every two doses should cost below 1,000 yuan ($146), the report said, citing Sinopharm’s chairman, who told media he has already been injected with one of the candidate vaccines.China’s official Xinhua news agency reported Monday that another vaccine candidate, developed by Chinese military scientists, can deal with mutations in the coronavirus.As of last month, at least 5.7 billion doses of the vaccines under development around the world had been pre-ordered.But the World Health Organization has warned that widespread immunization against COVID-19 may not be on the cards until the middle of next year. China has put its homegrown coronavirus vaccines on display for the first time, as the country where the contagion was discovered looks to shape the narrative surrounding the pandemic.High hopes hang on the small vials of liquid on show at a Beijing trade fair this week — vaccine candidates produced by Chinese companies Sinovac Biotech and Sinopharm.Neither has hit the market yet but the makers hope they will be approved after all-important phase 3 trials as early as year-end.center_img A Sinovac representative told AFP his firm has already “completed the construction of a vaccine factory” able to produce 300 million doses a year.On Monday, people at the trade fair crowded around booths showing the potential game-changing vaccines.China, which is facing a storm of foreign criticism over its early handling of the pandemic, has been trying to repurpose the story of COVID-19.State media and officials are now emphasizing the revival of Wuhan, the central Chinese city where the deadly pathogen surfaced, as a success story in the fight against the virus.last_img read more
