Here’s what I knew about Star Wars: Rogue One when I walked into the Riverview cinema Friday night: “It’s the story of how the Rebel Alliance gets the plans for the Death Star that Princess Leia sends to Obi-Wan Kenobi in A New Hope.” As someone who has seen most the Star Wars movies, and enjoys them for the fun, thrilling, cultural touchstones they are, that was good enough for me.

True to Star Wars form, Rogue One delivered on the action, thrills and nifty space gadgets and weapons. Python tutorial youtube More to my pleasure, it picked up where last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens left off (sort of, because The Force Awakens is actually set decades after the action of Rogue One) with the presence of a strong female lead character. Love quotes for wife In this case, it’s Jyn Erso, played by Felicity Jones, who I have to admit is one of the actresses whose name I know but couldn’t pick out of a lineup to save my life. Vnd to usd Jyn is the daughter of Galen Erso, the Death Star’s lead architect, albeit one with a conscience – he designs the Death Star with that one small but fatal flaw which always makes me think of this scene from Family Guy.

Jyn is conscripted by the Rebel Alliance to help track down her father, whom she hasn’t seen since she was a child, She and a rag-tag, RACIALLY DIVERSE band of Rebels, Imperial defectors, and two mercenaries (whose presence on this mission is interesting but never really justified to my satisfaction) set off across the Galaxy to obtain the Death Star plans so that a dude who’s currently shooting womp rats and drinking blue milk on Tatooine can eventually destroy it. Trading places stock market scene explained Like any good hero, Jyn is somewhat reluctant at first, but comes around to the importance of what she must do. Aud usd yahoo She trades barbs with K-2SO, a reprogammed Imperial droid who gets the film’s best lines, and is voiced by the guy who played Pastor Veal on Arrested Development.

 She’s good with a blaster. Exchange rate us to indian rupee She is devastated when her father dies. Yahoo futures quotes She is angry when she finds out that fellow Rebel Cassian Andor was actually sent on the mission to kill her father, but eventually forgives him so that they can get those Death Star plans. Usd law school She does not moon over Cassian, or any of the other men she’s surrounded by in the Millennium Falcon 2.0, or whatever the ship they’re flying on is called, nor do they moon over her. Usd chf She is a bad bitch who has to get shit done to save the Galaxy, and she does not have time to try and hook up with any of you dudes, thank you very much. Size of futures market When she does need assistance from Cassian, it’s not because she’s a damsel in distress, but because sometimes, when you’re fighting the evil Galactic Empire, it’s just better to have backup, regardless of your gender.

And when the Death Star plans are finally in Princess Leia’s hands (thanks, technology!) and everything has gone to shit because the Empire is still evil and the Death Star is operational enough to nuke cities if not planets… Conversion of euro to usd Jyn and Cassian still do not kiss. Sure, there are a few moments of heavy breathing and lingering looks when you think they might, but…nope. Usd to chf No romance here, folks, just camaraderie, trust and friendship built over the course of an exceedingly dangerous mission, and that’s how it’s going to remain until they meet their fiery end on a Scarif beach. The irony, of course, is that, to me at least, impending untimely annihilation is the best excuse for a completely gratuitious random make-out session. Idr to usd conversion What have you got to lose? I can think of a million worse ways to shuffle off the mortal coil than in the comforting embrace of a warm body, pregnancy or disease isn’t a concern, and you don’t have to have that awkward “So, what are we now?” conversation the next morning.

But I see what you’re doing, Rogue One, and I respect it. Exchange rate pound to dollar today It’s undeniably refreshing to watch a movie about strong, determined women and men working together to accomplish a dangerous, important goal without anyone trying to bone anyone else. Exchange rate danish krone to us dollar I know Rogue One is a standalone film, and we won’t see these characters again, but there are more Star Wars movies coming down the pike, and it would be great if they continue to follow in Rogue One’s footsteps. Usd cad exchange rate forecast A new hope, indeed.

Ok, so it wasn’t the official beginning. Stock market futures 2015 The actors who read were friends who graciously volunteered their time and talents (and were rewarded with drinks, because Carly is nice like that). Exchange rate vnd to usd Erin will be performing one of the roles in the show, but unfortunately couldn’t fly in from Cincinnati for just one night, and the rest of the roles won’t be cast until early January. Idr to usd The point of this read-thru was for me to hear the latest draft out loud, and get feedback so I can do any necessary revising to the script before we officially begin rehearsals in February.

Now, I don’t have children, but I imagine that hearing your play read out loud for the first time is sort of like sending your kid to school on the first day of kindergarten. Euro to usd exchange rate history You spend so much time nurturing this little creation. Algorithm for binary search You forgo sleep, food, showering, a social life for it. Decimal word problems No matter how frustrating it gets, no matter how much it kicks and screams and pees in your face, you ultimately love the crap out of it, and want everyone to love the crap out of it too. 200 usd to euro So you print it out and clip it together all nice, hand it off to people you trust, and hope they don’t beat the ever-loving shit out of it on the playground.

Luckily, that did not happen Sunday night. Gbp stock price The readig went really well, and the feedback I got was really valuable, and will ultimately make the play better. Convert binary to hexadecimal There will be rewrites (there are always rewrites), but that’s why we do this. Market futures cnn Hearing other people’s insights and questions made me think of things I hadn’t thought of before, or see things from a new perspective. Funny jokes for adults clean And while taking that feedback and incorporating it into the script can be challenging (I guess that’s the equivalent of a teacher telling a parent that their kid isn’t perfect. Euro stock exchange “What do you mean? Little Tommy’s an ANGEL!”) I know that ultimately it will make for a much stronger play, which is what it’s all about.

Last weekend marked the closing of the show Good Kids: Playing With Music, which was directed by myself and part of ReVamp’s Education outreach. Euro chart This performance was co-produced by Cincinnati Actor’s Studio & Academy, a process-based high school training program in Cincinnati, Ohio where I teach movement and physical acting techniques. Usd gbp This production was based on the play by Naomi Iizuka. Exchange rate euro dollar The play itself is influenced by the Steubenville High School rape case in 2012, where a group of high school students, including football players, sexually assaulted an incapacitated girl and documented the acts on social media.

“Something happened to Chloe after that party last Saturday night. China stock market futures Something she says she can’t remember. Commodity futures market price quotes Something everybody is talking about. Binary converter to text Set in a contemporary Midwestern high school, inundated with social media, smartphones and YouTube – “Good Kids: Playing with Music” explores a sexual encounter gone wrong and its very public aftermath. Streaming forex rates Who’s telling the truth? Whose version of the story do you believe? And what does that say about you? With the addition of pop music throughout this script, this devised musical challenges the audience to examine what creates these toxic attitudes we have today surrounding gender roles, female sexuality and sexual assault.”

As I looked into each moment of this play, a theme that kept coming up was the influence of pop culture. Call option example The world we surround ourselves with has power over us. Baht to usd The music, the movies, the commercials. Exchange rate aud usd So I decided to explore pop music, produced after 2000, to explore what songs add to the desire to stand up for your community and fight for one another versus songs that divide, isolate and insult. Aed usd Songs include “Blurred Lines,” “Brave,” and “Who You Are,” to name a few. Usd to rmb There were about eleven songs overall added into the script, and with only a piano to accompany the vocals, the audience was able to listen to each song’s lyrics. Fraction calculator that shows work This way they could start to comprehend what exactly we are supporting when we start to bob our head along without thinking.

Between toxic masculinity, women acting against one another, influence of social media, ignorance of entitlement, lack of responsibility and the surrounding pop culture, we begin to see how each and every one of us needs to take charge. Msn news breaking news After each show we had a talk back with the executive director of the Center for Family Solutions to discuss ‘how can we come together as a community to fight against sexual assault?’ After all, it is on us to stand up for the victims and create a world where all people can feel safe, protected and welcomed. Usd rub bloomberg It’s through honest education and positive communication that we can create actual good kids in the world.

It was invigorating to be part of such a powerful discussion and production. Eur usd exchange rate forecast It was also inspiring to have the students come in each night and share their own story and how this show had been influencing them. Futures market hours For instance, one of the guys in the cast is a junior at an all-boys jesuit high school and he told me that earlier in the week one of his friends had sent his a graphic video. Rose quotes He told me that not only did he ask his friend not to send it to him, but asked him to stop sending it around to anyone. Aud to usd conversion rate And also looked into consent where the video, and people involved, were concerned. 300 us in canadian He said he was nervous to speak out to his friend, but he had learned that was the best way to help others.

Each of the students started to see that sexual assault and rape is not just done by a stranger in an alleyway, but something that affects most people at some point in their life. Usd graph Not only did they start to understand this, they each started to speak up against assault. This is why we do what we do. 10 in binary code We create theatre that can promote conversation and change surrounding social issues. Euro to pound sterling exchange rate And if we can influence the younger generation while we do it, then we can guarantee a better world that the one with which we started.

It can be difficult to think about and comprehend that in the time it will take for me to finish writing this blog & for you to read it, almost 10 Americans will have been sexually assaulted.

This powerful Netflix documentary shines a light on two specific stories of young women who were sexually assaulted. Aud usd exchange rate It explores sexual assault, rape, trauma, cyber-bullying & overall coming of age in our world of social media.

Although I grew up with the internet, it wasn’t the sensation that it is today. Dollar exchange rate today Yes, we had email and chat rooms, AIM away messages and Myspace – but those posts were somewhat limited. 1 usd in inr Now though, with the world of Twitter and Instagram, opinions and experiences are no longer limited to just our friends, but rather shared with the entirety of the internet. Dollar vs euro chart But that’s just part of it. Current exchange rate usd to cad As difficult and complicated that social media has made our world, the main issue is still on battling sexual assault and standing up for those who are silenced.

When a group of officials can dismiss sexual assault as “boys being boys” or a presidential candidate can claim that discussing sexual assault is “just locker room talk,” you know we have a long way to go.

So there’s one question that comes to mind when faced with the reality of sexual assault, and a question that this documentary works to answer: “What can we do?”
