With advance reservations already nearly equal to last year’s guest list of 363, the gala promises to realize Green’s dream. Schnabel reports that attendees will be able to choose from silent auction items such as 14K gold and diamond jewelry, 49ers and Giants memorabilia, JCC membership and personal training packages, and much more. Cocktails will be served in the auditorium, then guests will move into the gymnasium, where Café Primavera will handle the catering. To close out the evening, DJ Aaron David will once again ensure that no space remains on the gym’s dance floor.
Yehuda Stav, a veteran Israeli movie critic, said that in Israel the names are actually less absurd than they used to be but the logic remains the same, “It is done in a clear and decisive manner in order to draw people to the movie theaters,” he said, “They are looking for something catchy or funny, even if it is ridiculous.”, For example, the title of Paul Newman’s 1978 comedy “Slap Shot,” about a bungling minor league hockey team, was considered so obscure in Israel at the time that it was simply renamed “Paul Newman and his gang.” Apparently, this kind of transformation is also common just north of the American border, In the French-speaking Canadian province of Quebec, Woody Allen’s ballet shoes and tap shoes 1973 sci-fi comedy “Sleeper” was turned into “Woody and the Robots.”..
The school board’s plan also calls for a dance studio and fitness center to be added later as funds become available. The gym and locker rooms are expected to cost $11.8 million, while the dance studio and fitness center would add another $2.2 million to the price tag. “The gym will have a moveable wall so you can have two things going on at the same time or you can move the wall back to accommodate the entire study body,” school board president Tina Orsi-Hartigan said. “The locker rooms will have new restrooms. The current ones are too small and in disrepair. Also, the locker rooms will have clear sight lines for supervision to help avoid unsuitable behavior.”.

www.tuxedorecords.com. Well known for his work with the rock band The Harpoons, Furman shines on his new solo album. Earnest vocals deliver penetrating lyrics on urgent indie rockers like “I Wanna Destroy Myself” and “Tell Em All To Go To Hell.” Furman can sound plaintive on “My Zero,” quirky on “Cold Hands,” liltingly Lennon-esque on “Cherry Lane” and soaring on “Anything Can Happen.” A hot sax solo helps “And Maybe God Is A Train” surge. “Been So Strange,” and “At The Bottom of the Ocean,” with its Bo Diddley rhythm, are other top tracks. Backed by his band The Boy-Friends, Furman proves that his day has come.
