LA’s Center Theatre Group Promises All-Female-Playwright Season Next Year (And Gets ‘Slave Play’ Back)

After criticism for programming few plays by women this season, culminating in Jeremy O. Harris pulling Slave Play from the schedule there, CTG says that the entire 2022-23 season at Mark Taper Forum will be plays by female or nonbinary writers, mostly BIPOC. – Yahoo! (Los Angeles Times)

Playwright Jeremy O. Harris Withdraws “Slave Play” From L.A. Run

When It Came to @RealDonaldTrump, Twitter Couldn’t Please Everyone–Rutenberg v. Twitter

The plaintiff Maria Rutenberg (a lawyer, perhaps not surprisingly) was unhappy Twitter shut down the @realdonaldtrump account, which meant she lost the opportunity to read and engage with Trump’s tweets. So, represented by a lawyer (Mark Javitch), she sued Twitter for violating her civil rights. It only takes a few pages for the court to say that Twitter isn’t a state actor, Section 1983 doesn’t apply to it, case closed: Rutenburg makes no allegation that Twitter exercised any state right or p...

Exclusive: Portugal's EDP could create Latam JV with China Three Gorges if takeover bid fails - sources

Theater review: ‘For The Love Of (or, the roller derby play)’ skates by on its staging

Setting a play in the world of roller derby certainly makes that play memorable. And for those of us whose tastes run more toward Stoppard than to this sport, Gina Femia’s “For The Love Of (or, the roller derby play)” proves a rather gentle introduction to the consensually brutal athletic endeavor. Had the play stayed on the track and in the locker room, it might have found conflicts aplenty. But Femia wanders into the bedroom of new team member Joy Ride (Briana Price) and her partner Michelle (...

Squeezed out of starting role, Josh Hart embraces being the Lakers’ little big man

A shot is going up, and Josh Hart positions himself just outside the restricted area. He crouches, then rockets himself into the air, and just as he’s reaching for the rebound, he can feel 7-foot Trail Blazers forward Zach Collins draped over his back. And that’s when Lance Stephenson comes in and grabs the board, and immediately starts pushing the ball up the court. The Lakers got the ball, so Hart can’t be upset. But a part of him, just a little part, is miffed that Stephenson, one of the guar...

‘Spamilton’ hilariously spoofs the lows, hits the heights at the Kirk Douglas Theatre

Whose revolution is it, anyway? America was founded on rebellion, religious and political. It’s still in a revolution, whether moving forward or backward. Theater has been full of revolution, otherwise we’d be watching shadows on cave walls. But these days, the theater is feeling the effects of a giant in the sky. No, not that one. “Hamilton” changed what’s mainstream in lyrics, in audiences, in ticket prices. It came about when Lin-Manuel Miranda dreamed a dream, bringing rap to Broadway, bring...

Cytosine deamination and base excision repair cause R-loop-induced CAG repeat fragility and instability in Saccharomyces cerevisiae [Genetics]

CAG/CTG repeats are structure-forming repetitive DNA sequences, and expansion beyond a threshold of ∼35 CAG repeats is the cause of several human diseases. Expanded CAG repeats are prone to breakage, and repair of the breaks can cause repeat contractions and expansions. In this study, we found that cotranscriptional R-loops formed...

2nd Circuit provides plan for employers to win misclassification cases

In Saleem v. Corporate Transportation Group (2nd Cir. 4/12/17) [pdf], the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals considered whether a company properly classified a group of black-car taxi drivers as independent contractors, or whether it should have classified them as employees. In ruling for the company, the court gifted employers a game plan to use when classifying workers to minimize risk in making the key determination of whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor. In so rulin...

Targeting deregulated AMPK/mTORC1 pathways improves muscle function in myotonic dystrophy type I

Myotonic dystrophy type I (DM1) is a disabling multisystemic disease that predominantly affects skeletal muscle. It is caused by expanded CTG repeats in the 3′-UTR of the dystrophia myotonica protein kinase ( DMPK ) gene. RNA hairpins formed by elongated DMPK transcripts sequester RNA-binding proteins, leading to mis-splicing of numerous pre-mRNAs. Here, we have investigated whether DM1-associated muscle pathology is related to deregulation of central metabolic pathways, which may identify pot...

Tufts researchers uncover possible source of genetic error causing multiple diseases

Researchers have discovered a possible explanation for a genetic error that causes over a dozen neuromuscular and neurodegenerative disorders. The error occurs as copies of three-letter sequences of DNA -- known as CAG and CTG triplets -- expand and repeat themselves hundreds or even thousands of times. Genetic analyses now reveal that these large-scale expansions are controlled by genes implicated in a process for repairing DNA breaks, suggesting that the expansions occur while breaks are being...
