In his own works

first_imgBound in handsome red leather with gold-trimmed pages, the 1623 First Folio of Shakespeare rests in its own display case at Houghton Library’s Edison and Newman Room, a precious gem in a new exhibit marking the 400th anniversary of the Bard’s death.It couldn’t be any other way.A copy of the First Folio of “Mr. William Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories, and Tragedies” sold at a Christie’s auction for about $6 million in 2011, but the value of the works inside cannot be measured in money.The First Folio contained 36 plays, including 18 that had never been printed before — “Macbeth,” “The Tempest,” “Julius Caesar,” and “Twelfth Night,” among them. Edited seven years after his death by his friends and fellow actors John Heminges and Henry Condell, the volume secured Shakespeare’s colossal place in Western literature.“Were it not for the First Folio, 18 plays would not have come to us,” said Peter Accardo, programs coordinator at Houghton. “Half of the Shakespearean canon would be lost.”Along with the First Folio — one of 230 existing copies — “Shakespeare: His Collected Works” includes 80 rare objects drawn from Houghton and other libraries. The exhibit runs though April 23.Early Shakespeare publications are also on display. Among them is playwright and poet Nicholas Rowe’s “The Works of Mr. William Shakespeare” (1709), which modernized punctuation and spelling and divided plays into acts and scenes. This was the first publication of Shakespeare available to Harvard students, listed in the library catalog in 1723.Visitors to the exhibit will find a volume from 1609 open to the famous sonnet with the even more famous first line, “Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?” A 1598 edition of one of the early comedies, “Love’s Labour’s Lost” sits next to a 1608 edition of “King Lear.” Also featured is the Third Folio, published in 1664, which includes the play “Pericles,” the authorship of which is considered apocryphal.,With his insight into the tragedies and absurdities of the human condition, Shakespeare influenced generations of writers. The exhibit highlights his impact through work by e.e. cummings, Emily Dickinson, and Ralph Waldo Emerson, who called Shakespeare “master of the revels to mankind.”Because Shakespeare cannot be fully understood without performance, the exhibit showcases stagecraft and theatrical memorabilia linked to famous Shakespearean actors, such as a handkerchief used by Uta Hagen in the role of Desdemona in a 1943 Broadway production of “Othello,” and a rapier used by Edwin Booth as Hamlet in a mid-19th-century performance.Also shown is a promptbook that belonged to British actor Sir Ian McKellen, who performed the one-man show “Acting Shakespeare” in Boston in 1987. He wrote his impressions with a quick sentence: “The returns were excellent” but “the theater was dirty.”Harvard’s latest celebration of Shakespeare’s legacy includes a role for Stephen Greenblatt, the John Cogan University Professor of the Humanities and author of “Will in the World.” Greenblatt will deliver a lecture titled “Editing Shakespeare for the Digital Age” at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Thompson Room, Barker Center.last_img

Philippines power company Ayala to be coal-free by 2030

first_imgPhilippines power company Ayala to be coal-free by 2030 FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg Green:Ayala Corp., the Philippines’ oldest conglomerate, aims to fully divest from coal by 2030, a rare rebuke of the fuel in a region where its use is expected to grow.Ayala’s power-generation unit, AC Energy Philippines Inc., will also boost investments in renewable generation as it transitions to a low-carbon portfolio, President Eric Francia said in a live-streamed annual stockholders meeting in Manila on Monday.The company will “now focus on renewable investments and we will not be making additional investments in coal plants,” Francia said. However, it remains open to natural gas- or diesel-fired power “that complement our renewable assets and developments.”The company joins a growing chorus of commitments by conglomerates, banks and governments to move away from coal, the most widely used and most-polluting fossil fuel for power generation. Southeast Asia is one of the last remaining growth markets for the fuel, as it’s seen as a cheap and reliable electricity source for rapidly developing economies.Ayala owns shares in two coal-fired power plants and a third that’s under construction. It plans to accelerate its transition away from coal as fast as possible, but needs to continue to serve its customers with reliable power as it builds up renewable capacity, an outside spokeswoman said by email.AC Energy plans to grow its attributable capacity to about 1,500 megawatts this year, from 1,100 megawatts in the first quarter, Chairman Fernando Zobel de Ayala said during the event Monday. Within that portfolio, the company aims to expand the share of renewables this year to 50%, from 44% in the first quarter, he said.[Claire Jiao, Dan Murtaugh]More: Philippines’ oldest conglomerate to get out of coal by 2030last_img

SPS brings a Fleet Health Engagement Team (FHET) to conduct SMEEs with Colombian representatives including exchanges with medical and non-medical personnel. Specific topics covered in the SMEEs include preventative medicine, tactical combat casualty care, insect-borne disease prevention, and humanitarian assistance and disaster relief response procedures. “The FHET will conduct subject matter expert exchanges with military and civilian organizations to effectively share U.S. Navy medicine’s best practices and lessons learned,” said Lieutenant David Cruz, FHET officer in charge. “The team will engage in humanitarian assistance and disaster relief, tactical combat casualty care, and public health exchanges to effectively develop strong partnerships across the U.S. Southern Command’s [SOUTHCOM] area of responsibility.” This mission stop in Colombia marks the second FHET engagement for SPS 18, and follows a successful stop in Trinidad and Tobago. FHET members are also scheduled to conduct mission stops in Honduras and El Salvador to work alongside those nations’ military forces, security forces, and civilian health professionals. “The role here is to share experiences about pre-hospital trauma care so that we can execute best practices and prevent unnecessary deaths,” said Lieutenant Commander Rachel Carter, a U.S. Navy emergency medicine nurse assigned to the FHET. “By sharing our experiences, we can better prepare to work together and respond to natural disasters.” Held on an annual basis by SOUTHCOM and executed by U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/U.S. 4th Fleet, SPS is a U.S. Navy deployment focused on SMEEs with partner nation militaries and security forces in the Caribbean, Central and South America.

Focused on enhancing cooperative partnerships with regional maritime services, SPS aims to improve operational readiness for all participants. Additionally, the mission will provide an opportunity for U.S. and partner nations to operate in a multinational environment, refine coordination, improve interoperability, and demonstrate flexibility. SPS is a demonstration of the strong U.S. commitment to partners in the Caribbean, Central and South America, fostering goodwill and enhancing our collective ability to respond to natural disasters and humanitarian crises. SPS 18 will conclude in October 2018. For more news about Southern Partnership Station 2018, visit, on Facebook at, on Twitter at, or on Instagram at
