Hugh Jackman & Jeremy Jordan View Comments The December 20 release date is fastly approaching for The Greatest Showman to arrive in cinemas nationwide, and Twentieth Century Fox is doing well by us, serving up first listens from Benj Pasek and Justin Paul’s original score.

Watch Broadway’s Jeremy Jordan, Cynthia Erivo and more strong-voiced talents team up with Hugh Jackman and Keala Settle (beginning at the 1:06 mark below) to deliver the film’s 11-o’clock number “From Now On,” and gear up to see The Greatest Showman on the big screen in just a couple days.

Multiple Gophers fare well at tough Drake Relays in IowaOther athletes helped Minnesota dominate a meet at Macalester. Derek WetmoreApril 25, 2010Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintThe Gophers menâÄôs track and field team is getting used to multitasking these days. For the third week in a row , the team had members competing in multiple venues. A multitude of individual performers joined the seven relay teams to represent Minnesota at the Drake Relays held in Des Moines, Iowa, last Wednesday through Saturday. Several other athletes competed in MacalesterâÄôs Bolstorff Twilight. R.J. McGinnis headlined the Drake meet for the Gophers, winning the decathlon with 7,319 points , 35 points ahead of teammate Jack Szmanda, who finished second. MinnesotaâÄôs 4-by-800 meter relay team finished in second place with a time of 7 minutes, 18.18 seconds, a new school record. According to head coach Steve Plasencia , at the time it was run it was the second-fastest time recorded in the country this year, second only to the wining team. Oladipo Fagbemi continued his strong freshman campaign, winning the triple jump at the Drake Relays with a jump of 49 feet, 11 inches. âÄú[The jump] was nice. The weather was a little shaky but I donâÄôt think it affected things,âÄù Fagbemi said. All-American high jumper Matt Fisher competed for the first time in several weeks. Fisher has been battling minor knee injuries but returned to finish fourth by clearing a height of 7-2 1/4. âÄúI donâÄôt think we have too much to complain about,âÄù Fagbemi said. âÄúIt was a good weekend for us and both the men and women did well in some key relays.âÄù The highlight of the Macalester Twilight meet was junior Ben Peterson on the pole vault. Peterson cleared a personal-best height of 17-7 1/4 to win the competition. PetersonâÄôs vault led a Gophers assault on the local Division III schools, with Minnesota scoring 159 total team points to win the competition by nearly 90 points. Other Gophers contributors were Addison Demer , who won the long jump, and Micah Hegerle , who won the discus competition and placed second in the hammer throw. There were several Minnesota athletes competing in the Drake Alternative meet in St. Peter, Minn., as well. Jon Lenz won the 400 hurdles and Trey Davis won the shot put. Women win fourth consecutive 4-by-8 The Gophers womenâÄôs team also competed in the Drake Relays over the weekend, winning the 4-by-800 relay for the fourth consecutive year. The winning team consisted of Nikki Swenson , Alena Brooks , Jamie Dittmar and Gabriele Anderson . The win gave Anderson her fourth title at the Relays and it was the third Drake Relays victory in the event for both Anderson and Swenson. The 4-by-1600 relay team set a new meet record with a time of 18:58.82. The team consisted of Swenson, Elizabeth Yetzer , Megan Duwell and Anderson, who earned her fifth Drake title with the win. âÄúThe kids ran with passion today,âÄù assistant coach Gary Wilson said. âÄúThe biggest part of the weekend, obviously, was having Gabe [Anderson] being there and able to anchor those relays.âÄù Anderson was competing in her first Drake relays since returning from treatment for cancer. âÄú[The 4-by-800] has been a nice tradition the last few years,âÄù WiIson said. âÄúI think kids aspire to [be on that team]. âÄúI think we certainly met our expectations and I talked with [head coach Matt Bingle ] and I know heâÄôs pleased with his kids. âÄ¦ It was the Gabe Anderson show as far as I was concerned.âÄù Next weekend many of the distance runners will take a break from competition, according to Wilson, with other athletes from the womenâÄôs team competing Friday at Brigham Young UniversityâÄôs Missouri Triangular in Provo, Utah.
The Huffington Post:There are lots of people of normal, healthy weight who, when they look in the mirror, see a fat person. Many of them know that their perceptions are skewed, because trusted friends and family have testified that they are slender, yet they can’t deny what they see in their reflection and mind’s eye.Such distorted perception is especially common among teenagers, and it has been linked to poor self-esteem and eating disorders. Adolescents who see themselves as overweight are more likely to use diet pills, laxatives, vomiting and extreme dieting to lose their imagined weight. Paradoxically, these teenagers exercise more than most, but they are also more prone to overeating, often while parked in front of the TV.But do these teenagers actually grow up to be obese adults? The transition from adolescence to adulthood is a critical time for the development of obesity, but surprisingly, such teenage misperception has not been explored as a risk factor for obesity later on.Read the whole story: The Huffington PostWray Herbert is an author and award-winning journalist who writes two popular blogs for APS, We’re Only Human and Full Frontal Psychology.

Tony RoeTony Roe, principal of Reading firm Tony Roe Solicitors, told the Gazette that divorcing couples need closure. ‘Moving on with their lives is crucial. Moreover, the longer it takes to get decree nisi, the later any court can impose or approve a settlement,’ he added. A decree nisi must be in place to empower the court to make a financial order.Roe was compelled to write to HMCTS chief executive Susan Acland-Hood this month over delays his clients were facing with the Bury St Edmunds regional divorce centre, which covers London and the South East. An information bulletin posted by HMCTS on 19 June to help practitioners assess how long it will take for the centre to process work stated that answers to applications received on 30 May would be processed by the administrative team in approximately 59 days.Acland-Hood told Roe: ‘We know this is not good enough – we have been short of staff in Bury, but should have picked up the issues earlier – we are now using extra staff (and help from other divorce centres) to sort this, and you should start to see improvement soon.’Last month the Ministry of Justice announced that it had introduced a fully digital divorce application process, which is expected to eliminate up to 13,000 hours of time spent by court staff checking petitions. A law firm chief has highlighted the worrying extent of delays faced by divorce practitioners – backed by official quarterly figures, which show that couples can face up to 51 weeks to officially split. This is despite the introduction of online applications and centralised working. According to the Ministry of Justice’s latest family statistics, divorce petitions were down by 4% between January and March this year, compared to the same period last year. However, those granted a decree nisi this year waited, on average, 26.7 weeks. The average time from petition to decree absolute was 51.3 weeks.#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*#

He said in this new DLP administration, there will be public notices as to days and times when constituency offices will be available.“They asked for constituency offices, I gave them constituency offices and when you go to the constituency offices it is closed most of the times”.“So I am saying to you that there shall be specific public office days when you know you can go to an office and meet a parl rep during those times. They can be vex if they want, that doesn’t matter to me,” the Prime Minister said.The official swearing-in ceremony for the Cabinet will take place at the Windsor Park Stadium in Roseau from 5PM.
