adjudicators

A Reminder

As audition season continues and results start to come in-

‘No’ is the worst thing that they can say.

‘No’ does NOT mean the following: that you are a bad musician, that you are a bad student, or that you aren’t as good as whoever you were comparing yourself to.

‘No’ DOES mean the following: the timing isn’t right for you to be there, or it wouldn’t be a good fit for you, or that they just don’t have room in your studio at the moment.

(And, a lot of the time, if you contact the adjudicators they will usually be more than happy to give you pointers on what they look for and how to improve!)

Having a bad audition does not make you a failure or mean that you shouldn’t pursue your dream. It might feel like the end of the world, but it won’t be.

It just means that there are going to be other opportunities that you haven’t gotten to just yet.

There is no precedent to support this claimed unreviewability, which runs contrary to the fundamental structure of our constitutional democracy.

Federal Judges, rejecting Dump’s emergency motion to reinstate his toxic #MuslimBan.

They added, “It is beyond question that the federal Judiciary retains the authority to adjudicate constitutional challenges to Executive action.”

In short, f*ck you.

Appeals court blocks Trump travel ban

A federal appeals court Thursday refused to let President Trump reinstitute a temporary ban on travelers from seven majority-Muslim nations, ruling that the president’s order violates the due process rights of people affected by the ban.

The quick decision from a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit could lead to a showdown at the Supreme Court, unless the administration agrees to dial back the travel ban or try its case before a federal judge in Seattle who ordered it stopped last week.

“Although courts owe considerable deference to the President’s policy determinations with respect to immigration and national security, it is beyond question that the federal judiciary retains the authority to adjudicate constitutional challenges to executive action,” the judge wrote in their opinion.

The ban, announced Jan. 27, temporarily barred citizens of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen for 90 days, all refugees for 120 days, and Syrian citizens indefinitely. It led to chaos at U.S. and international airports as tens of thousands of visa holders were blocked from entering the country or detained after arriving in the U.S.

A world-record stampede of origami elephants has descended on the Bronx Zoo, as part of a campaign to raise awareness about poaching.

The collection of 78,564 broke the Guinness World Record for the largest display of origami elephants. People from all 50 states and 40 other countries responded to the zoo’s call to send in origami elephants, Guinness World Records said in its announcement.

It added that the diverse participants included a “a 109-year-old woman, students from a school of the deaf, as well as participants from Iran, Kazakhstan and Egypt.”

The colorful folded creations filled rows of walls as a Guinness record adjudicator assessed the record attempt on Thursday.
