Bank of America intern's death puts banks' working culture in spotlight
Guardian (UK) - over 3 years
Death of Moritz Erhardt, a German student working for Merrill Lynch, triggers call for inquiry into excessive working hours in City Calls have been made for an overhaul of the long-hours culture among young staff working for banks in the City of London after the death of a "dedicated" German student who had won a sought-after placement at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. Moritz Erhardt, 21, had won a place as a summer intern at the London city offices of the US bank and was nearing the end of his placement when he was found dead in the shower at his temporary accommodation in east London by ambulance services on 15 August. Merrill Lynch did not comment on the length of Erhardt's working hours, and also declined to comment on whether interns – who are understood to be paid £45,000 pro rata – are routinely made to work longer than 12-hour days. A fellow intern at the bank described the aspiring student as a "superstar", adding: "He worked very hard and was very focused. We typically w ...

DIRECTOR GORE VERBINSKI: 'Lone Ranger' Was The Hardest Film I've Ever Worked On
Business Insider - over 3 years
Can director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer make a “Lone Ranger” film appeal to a generation of young adults who have never heard of Tonto or Silver the horse? We'll soon find out as audiences take in “The Lone Ranger,” the big-screen adaptation of the 1949 TV series which debuted July 3 and stars Johnny Deppand Armie Hammer of “The Social Network.” The characters in the TV series originally appeared on a radio show, circa 1933, and also appeared in a series of films later in the 1930s. Even later films with the characters included 1956’s “The Lone Ranger” and 1958’s “The Lone Ranger and the Lost City of Gold,” both of which starred the lead actors from the TV series, Clayton Moore (who portrayed the titular Lone Ranger) and Jay Silverheels (who took on the role of Tonto). A 1981 film titled “The Legend of the Lone Ranger” had different actors portray the characters. But even Verbinski says that pop culture had moved on past the Lone Ranger when he was growing up. ...

Ross Szabo: LA FEST Uses Soccer to Bring Communities Together
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
It may seem unimaginable to witness an event that brings together HIV and AIDS education in Africa, bone marrow transplants, celebrities and soccer for people of all ages. That event took place, however, Sunday at LAFEST at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA. LAFEST co-founders and soccer enthusiasts Dylan Leiner and Jeffrey Saunders hosted the event alongside sports-industry power couple Mia Hamm and Nomar Garciaparra and Grassroot Soccer Co-Founder Ethan Zohn to raise money for bone marrow and HIV awareness charities. Zohn has a way of making the impossible become possible. The winner of Survivor Africa and recipient of two successful stem cell transplants for Hodgkins Lymphoma said, "Personally it's a combination of everything that's important in my life. Soccer, entertainment, celebrity and saving lives. Nothing like this has ever happened in Los Angeles. It's a full day of soccer to benefit two charities that mean the world to me. It's literally a dream come true. We ...

Just in Tony Time: Appraising Seven Recent Openings
New York Observer - almost 5 years
Oliver Chris and Tom Edden in 'One Man, Two Guvnors.' (Courtesy Joan Marcus) The 2011-2012 Broadway season—a busy year of 40 new productions—ended last week, with the Tony Awards eligibility cutoff on Thursday, April 26. It went out with neither a bang nor a whimper but with an exhausting rush of last-minute, beat-the-deadline openings: Nine plays or musicals debuted in the last 10 days of elinatgibility. My colleague Rex Reed has reviewed two of them, the pleasant but lazily assembled Gershwin revue Nice Work If You Can Get It, and the also pleasant, even more anemic holy-roller movie adaptation Leap of Faith. Here, brief takes on the seven other shows that rounded out the season: Clybourne Park: The playwright Bruce Norris’ bracing examination of the unshakable, vestigial racism that lurks behind the platitudinous propriety of even well-meaning white liberals, Clybourne Park is both very funny and more than a little damning. It debuted off Broadway at Playwrights Horizons two ...
