Bernstein & & Associates that will allow the school to continue its work on behalf of local unaccompanied immigrant kids.

Bernstein & & Associates ‘generous present, and are delighted this will allow the personnel and students to continue this crucial work.”

Three years back, the UNLV Immigration Center was one of just 7 organizations– and the only law school– to receive an AmeriCorps grant to supply legal defense to kids leaving violence and abuse in Central America who got here alone in the United States. However, the AmeriCorps program has been terminated causing UNLV’s AmeriCorps grant to end in October. The Bernstein’s donation will money the center for the next five years and guarantee its work will continue uninterrupted.

“I am proud of our UNLV Boyd School of Law which has taken a leadership role in securing the rights of the most susceptible of our society and insuring that justice is available to all of us,” stated Ed Bernstein. “My wife Claudia emigrated from Peru 25 years back and that individual connection makes migration problems near and dear to my heart, in addition to civil liberties and law-related matters.”

The Kid’s Rights Program works closely with the Legal Help Center of Southern Nevada to represent unaccompanied children in both household court and in their immigration cases.

“The Bernstein’s commitment to the kids of the Las Vegas neighborhood will guarantee our mission to represent minors who have actually run away abuse find safety and stability in the United States,” said Michael Kagan, Teacher of Law and director of the Immigration Center. “The Clinic provides direct representation to as many of these children as it can, and trains other pro bono legal representatives to do the exact same.”

Today’s ceremony consisted of welcome remarks from Senator Harry Reid and a keynote address by Tyler Moran, managing director of the D.C. Immigration Hub, previous senior policy advisor for Sen. Harry Reid, and previous Migration Deputy Policy Director for the White Home Domestic Policy Council under President Obama. Additional speakers and fans, consisted of: Barbara Buckley, Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada Executive Director; Yvanna D. Cancela, Nevada State Senate; Edgar Flores, Nevada State Assembly; Jason Frierson, Speaker of the Nevada State Assembly; Michael Kagan, Teacher of Law and Director of the UNLV Migration Clinic; Sam Lieberman, Nevada Board of Regents; and Tom Thomas, Thomas & & Mack Company.

The work of the Children’s Rights Program is closely connected to the nationally acknowledged Kids’ Court School, which educates child witnesses– a number of whom are victims of abuse– about court and teaches them techniques to minimize stress and anxiety while testifying. The Kids’ Court School has served over 1,200 children in the previous decade and has just recently expanded to the National Judicial College in Reno. The program is broadening its award-winning operate in informing child witnesses to educating kids and youth about immigration proceedings.

“I initially became involved since I felt the need to help a lot of immigrants who lack resources to win the right to remain securely in this nation,” said Claudia Noriega-Bernstein, marketing director at Edward M. Bernstein & & Associates and children’s rights advocate. “After discovering whatever that the UNLV Kids’ Court School provides for our regional kids, I became a lot more passionate about offering all kids in our community a voice specifically due to the fact that if these kids are deported to their native nations they are often subjected to horrific violence.”

A fundraising occasion is planned for May 2018 to secure extra financing for the UNLV Children’ Court School.

‘WOW’ brings distinct touches to the traditional Vegas production program

Image

Denise Truscello Athletic and impressive acrobats are simply the start at “WOW” at the Rio.

Thursday, Oct. 19, 2017|2 a.m.

Are you among those people who longs for the Vegas of old? I see a lot of web comments looking for the good old days of lounge acts and showgirls, however I never ever really fulfill anyone associated with this hunt. Las Vegas certainly misses out on timeless productions like “Jubilee” and “Folies Bergere,” however there does not seem adequate ticket-buying folks to support that type of program.

“WOW,” which stands for “World of Wonder” and simply opened at the Rio Display room, isn’t a new version of those shows, but it definitely has an old Vegas feel. Produced and directed by Hanoch Rosénn, who made his name in the entertainment world as a mime and has developed numerous massive productions, has explored “WOW” thoroughly through Europe and created a customized version for Las Vegas– one that includes dancing pirates, a plate-spinning chef, a “human water fountain,” and “America’s Got Talent” semifinalist and crossbow whiz Sylvia shooting an apple off her own head. That’s a great deal to fit into 90 minutes, and the program feels quick and mad.

“WOW” opens by presenting you to its amusing hero Alberto, who juggles and dances and romps with the cast and audience throughout the night. Alberto guides you into a dream world produced with extensive 3D forecasts and a modern, familiar soundtrack, a universe brimming with acrobats: they hang from rings and poles and ropes, and they do influence quite a few exclamations of the program’s title. They offer the most dramatic and tension-filled moments in “WOW,” however there’s lots of beauty and humor too. The rapid-fire shipment of a variety of different acts brings to mind an oddball hybrid of “Jubilee” and “Absinthe,” if such a surreal thing might exist in the Vegas home entertainment landscape. It does not have showgirls in the traditional sense, however it does have a sinking of the Titanic scene, similar to “Jubilee” did. There’s constantly plenty of space for the strange in this town, specifically if it’s fun.

“WOW” is carried out at 7 and 9 p.m. Friday through Sunday and at 7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday at the Rio Display room. To find out more go to caesars.com.

Marbach acknowledged the role funny plays in conversations about social issues, but disagreed with the content of Cannon’s efficiency.

” While funny often checks out severe social problems in manner ins which are fun and thought-provoking, Mr. Cannon’s act crossed the line. His words were offensive and do not represent our Mercy core values. For that, we are deeply sorry, and the university has demanded a main apology from the artist and his agents,” said Marbach.

Some students posted on social networks that the show was a success.

Fallout over the Georgian Court University show isn’t really the very first time Cannon’s jokes were met opposition. The 36-year-old comic alleges he left America’s Got Talent after being threatened with effects for making a racial joke about NBC.

A university spokeswoman decreased to say how much Cannon was spent for the funny program.

The yearly festival juggernaut known as the Electric Daisy Carnival has actually revealed some huge modifications for its 8th event at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

EDC 2018 will be held May 18-20, moving from its standard Dad’s Day weekend in June, with tickets going on sale Thursday, September 28 at noon.

(Attendees will not be permitted to bring their own tents.) Festival-goers can likewise bring their own rv and hook it as much as the pre-arranged power website or lease a totally set up, Insomniac-provided Recreational Vehicle. Costs for all rentals will be revealed in the future.

EDC 2017 From Above

“The new outdoor camping areas will eliminate vehicle traffic for campers, offering a simple commute and hassle-free ins and outs of the celebration every day,” specifies today’s statement. “At the center of the camping sites, fans can enjoy lots of shade, seating, water, food and beverage suppliers, a general shop, activities and more.

The JLo program brings more hip-hop than the Strip has ever seen

Because it opened inside the Axis at World Hollywood resort in early 2016, Jennifer Lopez: All I Have actually has been hailed as one of the most energetic headliner productions of Las Vegas’ modern entertainment era– a full-scale singing and dancing display for its smoldering star. It has also become the most hip-hop-influenced homeowner show the Strip has actually ever seen.

Other dance-centric productions like Jabbawockeez and Michael Jackson One share the inspiration. But the JLo program– which just started selling tickets for 2018 dates from February through June– is saturated with hip-hop culture, not a big surprise considering both the star and the sound were born in the Bronx. Lopez didn’t simply mature with the music, dancing, art and attitude all around her; she took part in every chance. When a fly woman, always a fly girl.

All I Have starts strong with a glammed-up “If You Had My Love,” however it truly takes off when a musical interlude including the unmatched voice of Kid Capri presents a New York City train scene where JLo drops electricifying versions of “I’m Real,” “Feelin’ So Good” and “Jenny From the Block”– the latter fueled by that infectious Beatnuts sample– and keeps everyone dancing, transforming the Axis into the most significant club in Vegas. Hip-hop is constantly borrowing from funk, soul, R&B and rock ‘n’ roll, therefore does the show, with JLo capably moving from sexy balladeer to reggaeton booty-shaker to James Brown-esque bandleader. She can do all of it, however provided the chance to create a major spectacular that represents her story and style, it’s clear JLo’s heart remains with hip-hop. Jennifer Lopez: All I Have at the Axis at World Hollywood, September 6-October 7.

Canelo-GGG to MayMac fans: We'' ve got a real program for you

RESIDE IN Los Angeles on Monday, Aug. 28, 2017. Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady “GGG” Golovkin is a 12-round box fight for the middleweight championship of the world presented by Golden Kid Promotions and GGG Promotions. The occasion will occur Saturday, Sept. 16, 2017, at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Tuesday, Aug. 29, 2017|2 a.m.

Canelo Alverez &’GGG’Golovkin L.A. Workout Introduce slideshow”LOS ANGELES– Oscar De La Hoya had no desire to enjoy Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s success over Conor McGregor last weekend

. Neither did middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, who smirked at the idea of taking the time far from his family. “I simply thought it was a scams, and I still think it’s a fraud,”De La Hoya said Monday. Now that Mayweather’s farewell triumph over the UFC champ went off without a significant humiliation for boxing, De

La Hoya and fellow promoter Tom Loeffler hope their upcoming megafight between Saul Alvarez and Golovkin will be reached new heights by a rise of interest produced by the spectacle of the summertime. If you liked Floyd and Conor, they think you’re going to love Canelo and Triple G. Golovkin meets Alvarez on Sept. 16 in the very same Las Vegas arena where Mayweather stopped McGregor in the 10th round last Saturday. The outcome was no surprise to De

La Hoya, who promotes Alvarez, or to Loeffler, who guides Golovkin’s career. “We were all quite persuaded that Floyd would win, “Loeffler stated. “We were just hoping that it wouldn’t be a disaster where people were going to say, ‘We’re never going to purchase another

pay-per-view.'”Loeffler and De La Hoya are both grateful that the majority of casual sports fans appeared to delight in Mayweather’s 10th-round interruption victory: The uncommon battle appeared to be competitive, and it mainly entertained individuals who

don’t see every big battle. And if those casual fans now wish to see the very best that boxing needs to provide, De La Hoya and Loeffler are offering Mexico’s most significant star against an unbeaten Kazakh knockout artist for 4 middleweight title belts.”I’m pleased that many individuals

purchased the battle so they can see what boxing is everything about, and exactly what boxing is everything about is Sept. 16 with Canelo and Triple G,” De La Hoya stated. De La Hoya sent out a furious, profane tweet to his 1.8 million fans one day prior to the bout, declaring that Mayweather and McGregor were “disrespecting the sport of boxing.” De La Hoya didn’t back down from that opinion during public exercises in downtown

Los Angeles for Alvarez and Golovkin, who brought in well over 1,000 fans standing in 90-degree downtown Los Angeles heat for four hours.”Only Mayweather knows, why it lasted 10 rounds, “said De La Hoya, who lost a close fight to Mayweather in 2007.”Clearly, Mayweather is not the most significant puncher in the video game. If there was a Canelo therein, obviously it would last one round. “Golovkin said he might enjoy the replay of Mayweather-McGregor today, but didn’t seem extremely interested. Alvarez, who took his only career defeat against Mayweather in 2013, said he ordered the pay-per-view, however “to see a program, not a battle

. I knew what I was getting. “”We weren’t negative on that occasion,”Loeffler added.”We simply made it clear that this is the genuine boxing match, which was a spectacle. It was the most popular Mixed Martial Arts fighter versus the most popular fighter. … You should not sell it as a real, competitive battle

. However we mored than happy that it wasn’t a disaster to where people would be down on buying this battle.”Although Loeffler praises McGregor’s showmanship and Mixed Martial Arts abilities, he likened the matchup to Muhammad Ali’s infamous 1976 fight with Japanese pro wrestler Antonio Inoki. “It was actually more of an exhibit,”Loeffler said.”It wasn’t actually a boxing match.”

But do not error Loeffler for an Oscar-style hater. He believes the long-term benefits of that short-term interest surpass the downsides.”The more boxing direct exposure

we can get for the sport in general, the more fights that can be made,”Loeffler stated.”

It brought (boxing )to the mainstream. It got a great deal of attention that numerous other occasions never ever have a possibility of getting. However I really think (Alvarez-Golovkin)is the highlight of boxing for this year. “

Immersive program ‘Alice’ uses up at the Red Rock Resort

Alice has found a new house in Summerlin. By )

Monday, July 10, 2017|2 a.m.

. It isn’t simple putting on an out-of-the-box program in Las Vegas, but things fell into place well for Alice: A Steampunk Concert Dream. Vocalist, dancer, starlet and producer Anne Martinez says she was preparing to reword and revise parts of the show– an original musical performed in the past at Vinyl and Brooklyn Bowl– when the program was forced to take a short hiatus anyhow.

“Among my co-singers was pregnant when we finished the last program at Brooklyn Bowl, and it really exercised well so they might take pleasure in that pregnancy,” Martinez says. “I wanted to compose some elements of the program, modification and include some music, and I needed time to do that. We’re always changing and growing and putting things away, and it was a great time to obtain in there and do that, and after that once we were prepared to go again it worked out due to the fact that Ashley [Fuller]’s infant was a little older now.”

It just so took place that when Alice was prepared for the phase, the entertainment execs at Station Casinos came calling. “I got a call from Red Rock and they were really interested and enthusiastic,” Martinez states. “They are so expert and really ingenious there, and our conference was so interesting. They’re extremely forward believing in how they wish to entertain their audience.”

The outcome is Alice taking control of the Rocks Lounge at Summerlin’s Red Rock Resort on the 2nd Monday night of every month, starting July 10. (You find ticket details here. The show is based on the writings of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass, spiced up with initial plans of precious pop and rock hits performed by the nine-piece BBR band along with Martinez, Fuller, April Leopardi, Eric Morgan, Adolfo Barreto and Jeffrey DeBarathy. Martinez and choreographer Ryan Kelsey work as co-directors.

“There’s a lot of new music, brand-new choreography and all-new costuming that makes the design of this [version] unique and various,” Martinez says. “It was initially developed with this neo-Victorian, steampunk ambiance, and we have actually gone much further with that, truly pushing the limits of the dream of producing this world. We actually want the audience to seem like they’re in this crazy wonderland along with to appreciate these characters and where they’re going.”

The Rocks Lounge is among the more intimate places Alice has visited, and Martinez says the production is really taking over the place. “That space is already extremely prepare and set up type of funky, so we went bananas with the design. It’s very much breaking the fourth wall, with things occurring all around the audience.”

With Monday nights on the schedule, the program will probably continue to draw an industry crowd. Martinez, who also performs in Baz: Star Crossed Love at the Venetian, is relying on it. “Everyone in the neighborhood here is so helpful of each other and each other’s tasks,” she says. “Alice has truly been like our kid. We’ve committed a lot time and love to it, and [the audience] has actually been very excited to see what we have actually finished with it and exactly what changes we’ve made. There’s a lot entertainment here throughout the weekend and all of us are constantly working, so Monday night is ideal for everybody.”
