Xavier Mortimer’s magical story is still being composed


Xavier Mortimer is bewitching audiences at Planet Hollywood.

Wednesday, March 14, 2018|2 a.m.

. The six-month agreement. That’s how Vegas gets you.

French artist and illusionist Xavier Mortimer is just among the performers who pertained to town on a six-month contract and ended up staying for several years. In his case, he was called by Cirque du Soleil to be part of the creation of “Michael Jackson ONE” at Mandalay Bay five years ago. He played the character of Sneaky in one of the Strip’s most popular productions for more than 3 years.

“It was among the very best experiences I have actually had,” Mortimer states. “I didn’t wish to leave Cirque, however I had this new chance to open my own show on the Strip. It was something entirely various, to go from being a part of a big group and something extremely stable to now, you have to defend yourself and be everywhere and offer tickets.”

The gamble appears to have paid off. In December, “Xavier Mortimer’s Wonderful Dream” was extended for a 2nd year in the Sin City Theater at World Hollywood. It’s not just Mortimer’s own Vegas program, it’s a fantasy that displays his full variety of abilities.

“The impressions are original, my production, so you have actually never seen them anywhere. And there’s a story, too, about a dream,” he says. “There are various scenes or pictures and it’s really fantasy-oriented. I matured establishing these impressions because I was more into that dream theme than sawing a woman in half. That’s why I ended up at Cirque. They saw me and stated, ‘this man is our mood.'”

Mortimer is the first former Cirque du Soleil performer to heading his own show on the Strip. His spirited, whimsical design– developing an orchestra with his shadows, dancing with a broomstick– intertwines funny and poetry, music and mime artistry. “Individuals like David Copperfield were big-time in my early life, but likewise I’m a long time fan of Cirque and I love a big series of art, music and funny,” he says. “Charlie Chaplin, obviously, due to the fact that my program consists of a lot of physical funny, some action and balancings and just things taking place to the character in that design.”

The magic-show landscape on the Strip is a crowded one, but Mortimer has actually already set himself apart with an unique style and an immersive, family-friendly production.

“I built this whole story around what I do,” he says. “My obstacle is to get this to be successful and work to be the very best I can be every day, not take on other programs. If they like me in Vegas, I’m going to remain.”

“Xavier Mortimer’s Magical Dream” takes the stage at the Sin City Theater at World Hollywood (3667 Las Vegas Blvd. South, 702-777-6737) at 7 p.m. Saturday through Thursday and more details can be found at xaviermortimer.com.

What'' s the Story?

What made a 2011 commerical for the Volkswagen Passat, with a young kid dressed as Darth Vader, so memorable? Was the young boy’s acting so credible? Was his Star Wars costume so cute? Was it the use of John Williams’ iconic “Imperial March?”

It wasn’t any of these.

The industrial works because there is a humorous, moving story provided in less than a minute. The story is what made the Star Wars fans giggle, got stuck inside the Gen Xers’ minds, and made parents wreck a little at the end. Published to Youtube before the Super Bowl, the business acquired 17 million views prior to kickoff.

“It paid for itself prior to it ever ran,” said Mike Sheldon, CEO of Deutsch The United States And Canada.

Think about that. The video resonated so much that they made adequate cash on Youtube advertisements to spend for the production.

Sure, you can inform your target audience that your broom cleans up things quickly. But if you demonstrate that the adverse effects of rapid cleansing will be additional time to invest with their family, you have actually got them.

In respect to video, publications like Wired and Adweek declare over and over once again that attention periods have actually dropped considerably for many years. So, if over the past 3 years video has become the most taken in media online, then why have specific brands moved away from brief kind video and doubled down on longer branded films? It’s since story structures are how our minds process information. If a story exists in the proper way your mind will stay tuned in, even if you have a short attention span.

Storytelling can and ought to be utilized in any sort of communication and design also. Efficiently interacting your stories should be the primary focus of your style. Design should be used to help communicate the story effectively, or not produced at all. As in video production, you must overcome many versions of your style in order to fine-tune or get rid of unnecessary aspects that don’t contribute to completion objective of your design work.

Remember, while it is true that attention spans are much shorter than ever, the actual truth is that when our brains are bombarded with huge amounts of messages without any structure or story we end up automatically looking for more significant material.

One of the earliest marketing and interactions techniques is to yell an item or company’s virtues from the rafters. You’ve seen it all before: Save with us. We’re the best! Leave our rival behind.

These claims can be quickly dismissed, and these promises met with deep suspicion. Consumers will not let anybody, online or off, inform them exactly what they must think. If you reformat the messaging and craft a story around the customer and their interaction with your brand name, they’re more likely to keep an open ear.

Provide the brain the stories it craves in order to understand the world, and you will see the difference.

Married and Afraid: Henderson household shares the story behind '' Dirty John ' podcast


A true crime podcast including adjustment, deceptiveness and murder recorded the country this fall. “Dirty John” is about a woman in her 50s who is swept her feet by someone she thinks is the ideal man. In reality, he was a socio-pathic scam artist who wound up trying to eliminate her daughter. That lady and her daughter have been living part-time in Henderson.

Debra Newell met John Meehan in Oct. of 2014. At the time, she lived in California, she ‘d been wed and separated a couple times previously, and she stated she believed, “Finally, this was the genuine thing.”

Nevertheless, very rapidly, things deviated, and she and her family recognized they were dealing with a dangerous con artist; one who would stop at nothing to obtain what he wanted, she stated.

“I fulfilled him on a dating site and he had the tendency to have everything on my checklist I was searching for,” Debra stated.

Debra Newell had actually become a very successful female. As the owner of a flourishing interior decoration service, with a lovely household, she stated she was ready to share her life with somebody who valued those things.

“I liked that he was a doctor, that he had been successful helping people, and after that when he said he had actually been to Iraq, Physicians Without Borders, that pleased me also,” Debra said. “It moved extremely quickly, and I was sort of, how do I put it? Swept my feet due to the fact that he understood exactly what to say. Everything was so calculated,” Debra stated.

John stated he was a medical professional, owned multiple houses and was a married man.

“He would get worn his scrubs and yet he wasn’t bringing in earnings. He stated all his money was going towards his kids,” Debra said.

Debra said she was blinded by love at the time, but her kids were not.

“I simply desired her to look at the red flags and slow it down and pump the breaks,” Debra’s child Terra said. “My impression of him was that he was kind of cold.”

Her child and other relative revealed their concerns about John, however Debra was head over heels.

“It was like a swept off your feet, like I’m stating, love and I just fell hard for him. I wasn’t rather prepared to obtain wed. He would ask me a minimum of I’m going to state in between 10 and 20 times a day,” Debra said.

Lastly, after understanding John less than 2 months, Debra said “yes.”

“I let my heart lead instead of my head and I ought to have let me head lead, and we went to Vegas and got married,” Debra stated.

However, the pleased moment didn’t last long.

“I was seeing signs and I was like ‘Exactly what did I do? What did I do? Why did I wed this male?'” Debra said, “I had my household, which is incredible, I have the best family, and a couple of my kids began looking into him.”

They worked with a private detective and found jail records, limiting orders, proof that he wasn’t a doctor after all, signs of drug dependency and more.

“I was so torn due to the fact that part of me made a commitment and I need to honor it. The other part of me states ‘He’s a bad man, you have to get away,” Debra stated.

Debra got out, however it wasn’t long prior to John reeled her back in.

“He’s got a reason for every single one, but he’s got a legal representative saying that he can prove John’s innocent,” Debra said. “You’ve fallen in love with someone, you wan na believe them. At the very same time, your gut’s informing you, it’s simply not right.”

A couple of months later on, Debra stated she understood she ‘d made a mistake.

“He has actually sent some pretty wicked text,” Debra said, “‘I hope you went to church today due to the fact that I have a truly tension about you.'”

Debra stated he sent her daughter something even worse.

“Among them was, ‘I hope you fall out of a building um arrive at your head and your brains splash all over the place. I will be chuckling,'” Debra stated.

Then they check out a chilling report about his time in jail.

“He cut his stomach open in prison and then he put poop in it so he might go to the hospital and get a fix and I believed, ‘If he might do that to himself he could harm somebody else without offering it an idea,” Terra said.

“I went out. I began concealing. I wore a brown wig. At times, I couldn’t enter into my workplace,” Debra stated.

Debra lived with fear and anxiety for months, frightened to death that John would find her or her kids. In Aug. of 2016, her fears came true.

“My dog started to bark and grumble at this person and I simply thought it was a homeless man to be truthful,” Terra said.

Terra had actually just gotten home from work. Her mind was on the performance she was going to that night.

“This guy turned up and grabbed me by the waist, looked me in the eyes and he stated ‘Do you remember me?’ I just didn’t even state anything to him, I just attempted to run away and escape him and he started to like punch me however I didn’t understand it was stabbing,” Terra stated, “He tried to cover my mouth. I bit him as hard as I could.”

Terra stated they continued to battle. She said he was stabbing at her and she was kicking and shrieking, doing anything she could to get away.

“I ended up like going down to the ground and being on my back and he was doing this [stabbing motion] with a knife, however the knife remained in a Del Taco bag,” Terra said. “I did this one kick and the knife fell out of the bag and it landed here. So, I got the knife and I started just wailing on him.”

She stated because minute, it was going to be her or him.

“I just began stabbing him. I started to press him off of me and then I got him here [shoulder] and I also got the last one in his eye and the last one I type of did give a doubt. I was like ‘I don’t desire him to get back up, I do not desire him to try to hurt me once again. If he gets back up he’s going to eliminate me,” Terra stated.

She stated she started shouting for help and ran.

“I called my mother and I told her, ‘I’m so sorry I killed your husband,'” Terra said.

“She had actually been stabbed in the chest, in the arm and a little bit of a fracture here [above her eye] where he missed. Thank God,” Debra said.

“I had more regret than you know exactly what to do with. I simply thought, ‘I triggered this,'” Debra said.

Medical professionals stated John brain dead. Two days later, they ended. Lastly, this family’s nightmare is over.

“I’m happy that he’s gone and unable to injure anybody else,” Terra said.

Since then, Debra has made it her objective to help others in similar scenarios: victims of individuals who use coercive control.

“Initially, they attempt to listen to you to obtain to understand you. Then, they state whatever right; exactly what you wish to hear. So they have the ability to be exactly what you desire,” Debra said.

She’s been using her headache to attempt and save others.

“There are ladies that are most likely frightened to death to leave. (They) don’t see any other method of leaving the relationship and I want to have a voice for them,” Debra said.

The Back Story: Where Champions Are Grown

What does it take to be a champion? Well, you have to huge, high, and well groomed. And it assists to have a huge crown too.

I’m speaking about champ trees, and we have 10 of them at UNLV.

In 1992, the Nevada Department of Forestry introduced the Nevada Big Tree Register to fight the misconception that the state exists in a barren, treeless desert. That could not be further from the fact, and the Silver State’s concealed arboreal gem– its emerald in the desert– is UNLV. Nestled within the canopy of the more than 4,300 trees on campus are the 10 biggest and best specimens of their kind discovered throughout the state, including Reno.

Acknowledged by the Arbor Day Foundation as a Tree School USA, our whole 330-acre school is an arboretum– an outdoor museum of sorts for trees and shrubs, both native and introduced. Every one of UNLV’s trees is visited myTreeKeeper.com. A resource that overlays Google maps, it identifies trees by type, and computes general greenhouse gas and energy advantages. Next time you’re on school, bring a pocket arborist with you by downloading the TreeKeeper app.

UNLV has cultivated its school to showcase plants that succeed with the best care in our climate. Here’s a little bit more about our champions.

Weeping Mulberry

Morus alba

Set down upon a grassy pedestal just outside the Carlson Education Building, this champion is 20 feet tall with a 30-foot spread. You won’t discover the weeping mulberry in the wild, however, as it was a decorative oddity produced from cuttings of the Chinese white mulberry. Its long, loping branches produce an umbrella-like effect, which might have led to its moniker as the campus “kissing tree.” [https://www.unlv.edu/news/article/letting-go-what-you-cant-control”> Read about one couple’s engagement under the tree.]

Arbutus unedo

First things first: You wouldn’t make shortcake with these berries, though its fruit is edible and tastes sort of like a fig. However it has a well-earned reputation as the king of all outdoor patio trees. Our 21-foot specimen is near the Chemistry Structure. With cinnamon-colored bark and perfectly complex branches, this Mediterranean work of art has motivated poems and mixed drinks and it succeeds in our extreme desert environment.

Blue Palo Verde

Parkinsonia florida

A native in our region, the blue palo verde is a bit bigger, than the dense, bright green-trunked foothill Palo Verdes seen throughout the region. It’s the state tree of Arizona, however Nevada’s finest example– a 41-foot charm with golden yellow flowers– welcomes visitors to the Barrick Museum of Art. This tree isn’t the best for lawns, but with its blue-gray tint, pops as part of a water-smart desert landscape.

Camperdown Weeping Elm

Ulmus glabra Camperdownii

The Scotland local isn’t typical in the Southwest– it isn’t actually that common anywhere. Folks in Oregon made a big fuss this year when a few camperdowns were relocated from their state capitol; no fuss was made when ours was moved from the grassy knoll near the Flashlight to its existing position in the 1990s. Found by Carlson Education Structure, our 11-foot specimen is tucked within the cluster of weeping mulberries and simple to miss out on.

Yew Pine

Podocarpus macrophyllus

Heralded as a fantastic background alternative in a landscape, we think our 24-foot champion does simply great situateded versus White Hall by itself. Likewise known as a Buddhist pine, it belonging to China and Japan and resistant to termites. Its long, narrow leaves, on the other hand, are hazardous to family pets. Oh, and though it’s a conifer, it’s not really a pine or a yew. Now yew know.

Desert Willow

Chilopsis linearis

The desert willow looks a bit mangy in winter, but its pale pink flowers and brilliant green leaves more than make up for it in spring and summertime. Our 42-foot champ neglects the Research study Administration Structure and though off the beaten course is more than worth the walk. And considering that it’s a native, the desert willow is simple to take care of and similarly simple to discover in local nurseries.

Chir Pine

Pinus roxburghii

You ‘d better be looking up– and not at your phone– this graceful 52-foot chapmpion outside the Lily Fong Geosciences Building. Its clusters of soft, long needless start well above your head. These trees came from the low elevations of the Mountain ranges and its resin is utilized medicinally to treat persistent aches and discomforts. It is a moderate water user that does well in Southern Nevada’s less-than-stellar soils.

Texas Olive

Cordia boissieri

This stout, slow-growing evergreen with striking white flowers rarely tops 20 feet– the height of our champion. Its natural inclination is to look like a shrub, though it is quickly coaxed into a tree-like kind with pruning. It has a hard time in freezing temperatures, so you’re not likely to see it in Northern Nevada. Not a real olive, the name must come from its olive-like fruit. Some say it’s edible; others state it’s not.

Heritage Live Oak

Quercus virginiana

A fast-growing tree that’s adjusted well for desert conditions, the Heritage Live Oak is a cultivar of the Southern Live Oak. Its evergreen-like appearance provides it strong curb appeal throughout the year. Our 60-foot champion rests unassumingly on the Academic Shopping mall near one of UNLV’s earliest structures, Grant Hall. It’s common in Southern Nevada, and with its long life expectancy, when you plant one it’s yours for life.


Dalbergia sissoo

The Sissoo, or Indian Rosewood, has flourished in appeal. And what’s not to like? It’s reasonably economical, grows rapidly, and grows in hot weather. With our champ situated in the Barrick Museum parking area, you might be lucky adequate to take pleasure in a few of its acclaimed shade the next time you park on school on a hot summer season day. In its native India, the tree is prized for its stunning grain and used to make striking furniture.

About the Specimens

The pressings come thanks to UNLV’s Wesley E. Niles Herbarium, which has actually collected more than 65,000 specimens. The herbarium uses the very best single representation available of the Mojave Desert flora. Visitors are welcome. Call 702-895-3098.

What Story Is the Mob Museum Informing Inside and Outside its Walls?

Museums don’t simply house the past. They inform us stories. Stories that shape our understanding of the yellowing photos, old documents, and antique items that they consist of. When we check out a museum, we’re not simply experiencing pure facts; we’re strolling into a rhetorical area where we’re convinced to see things in a particular light.

One of the important things that makes museums and other locations such effective forms of remembering is that we, as Americans, find them naturally credible. As historians Roy Rozenzweig and David Thelen talked about in their book The Presence of the Past, Americans saw museums as the most trustworthy source of details about the past– more credible even than history textbooks and, ahem, college teachers.

In my University Online forum lecture, I’ll illustrate how locations end up being convincing by going over the example of our own National Museum of The mob and Police— better called the Mob Museum. As a scholar of rhetorical studies, I take a look at how individuals use language persuasively in public. We employ rhetoric at any time we utilize signs– words, images, architecture, and so on– to aim to influence a group of individuals to act or to alter their attitude or identity. Wish to get elected to the school board? Usage rhetoric. Need your neighbors to keep their barking pet dog inside? Use rhetoric.

The Mob Museum can also be considered a response to a set of issues that’s distinct to Las Vegas: How do we keep travelers gathering to the destinations of our valley while also supplying a sense of pride and cultural resources for the citizens? My talk will show how the museum’s design, shows, language, and imagery address what I call “rhetorical issues” provided by the museum’s distinct place in a downtown redevelopment area on the planet’s tourist capital.

For example, an essential issue that fans, creators, and promoters of the Mob Museum faced was the best ways to build an “genuine” and engaging narrative about the Mob without either glorifying the Mob or raising concern that the Mob was still active in Las Vegas. While a number of the museum’s displays address this problem, one of my favorite examples is the space on the first flooring devoted to the “Memories of the Mob.” This little exhibition includes a gallery of antique household pictures of weddings, children, and other images emphasizing mobsters’ functions as “family men.”

When I initially went to the museum, the exhibit struck me as out of place, as it follows the flooring focused on law enforcement’s efforts to lower the Mob. Yet, when I began to consider it in the context of the broader narrative– that the Mob is a thing of the Las Vegas past– I started to see its rhetorical function: to make it appear that the Mob exists just in black-and-white family photos. Made males not live to roam our streets; they appear only in these dusty artifacts. Yet, somebody had to unpack the pictures from the attic, so we understand that the descendants of these families reside on. A display utilizing artifacts to show how Mobsters existed as individuals just in the previous recommend that the heirs to these customs have actually in some way vanished. We leave the museum feeling safe and separate from the dangers presented there.

I became interested in the Mob Museum for a few factors. First, as a local living near downtown, I’ve ended up being invested in the numerous modifications taking place around my neighborhood. While I clearly gain from much of the improvements that downtown redevelopment brings, I’m also cognizant of the issues of gentrification, consisting of greater rent and displaced next-door neighbors. The museum was a focal point of these redevelopment efforts, and I wanted to know how its production was influenced by that argument.

Second, as a UNLV professor, I teach a course called “Rhetoric and Public Memory,” where trainees are required to visit and compose an analysis of the museum. I quickly found that my students had strong viewpoints about the purpose of the museum. When we discuss their go to in class, there’s typically a pretty even split in between trainees who think that the museum glorifies the Mob and those who believe that it condemns the Mob. I questioned what, specifically, about the museum welcomed such varied analyses.

Third, as someone who investigates how we utilize rhetoric to keep in mind the past, I wanted to investigate exactly how memory operates in a young city that’s run by a traveler economy. How does the Mob Museum work both as a location to save historical details and as a tourist destination? I’m interested in how my neighborhood works, and studying the Mob Museum seemed like the perfect opportunity to find out more about that.

Former Mayor Oscar Goodman was a huge booster of the Mob Museum. While talking up the museum in 2009, Goodman was reported to have quipped to a regional blogger, “no one’s going to come to downtown Las Vegas to take a look at paintings. Exactly what will they take a look at? They’ll look at something that’s really embedded in history, that makes us distinct and distinct from any other city, that has a historic nexus, [like] a keystone because of the Kefauver hearings … And I think it’s a natural.”

Although the museum may appear like a “natural,” someone needed to promote it and build it. Someone (or, more precisely, a bunch of someones) formed its stories. I want individuals who encounter those stories about the past to think critically about the stories they’re being told.

HBO’s ‘Ballers’ has stolen the Vegas pro sports story

Judging by the ratings for HBO’s Ballers– star Dwayne Johnson ‘grammed that the season three premiere on July 23 was the premium network’s best-performing half-hour program in more than six years– you currently understand what’s going on in the show. Somewhat having a hard time previous NFL star Spencer Strasmore (Johnson) has a new objective– he wishes to bring pro football to Las Vegas. What a concept!

Sunday night’s 2nd episode (“Bull Rush”) was something of a condensed variation of exactly what Las Vegas has been through in the last 18 months as regional officials negotiated the Raiders’ move from Oakland. A scene where The Rock’s character is golfing with the mayor (played by Cheryl Ladd!) feels like the show’s authors have actually simply been getting sound bites from regional news short articles.

Mayor/Charlie’s Angel: “It’s hard convincing the taxpayers and the stadium committee to pay for something they see as the most expensive traveler trap on the planet.”

Spencer: “I can modify the understanding of Vegas as Sin City … and exactly what takes place in Vegas doesn’t need to remain here.”

Mayor: “We made a fortune on that slogan. You wish to alter it?”

It’s all quite goofy, including that the gambling establishment boss who might team up with Spencer to bring a team to town is played by Steve Guttenberg.

It’s always fun to see Vegas onscreen. That golf course looks like Bali Hai, and the gang also spends time gaming at the Cosmopolitan and consuming at Momofuku in this episode. But like almost every motion picture and TV reveal inevitably does, Ballers stumbles a bit in trying for authenticity. In order to show to cowboy city councilman Bob Sawyer (played by Brett Rice and apparently based upon long time regional official Tom Collins) that he’s more regional than traveler, Spencer goes off-Strip to a beast truck rally. And owns a monster truck. And crashes it. You understand us crazy residents, always crashing our monster trucks.

Still, it needs to continue to be fun to enjoy the Ballers version of the Raiders-to-Vegas story. Maybe it’ll offer us residents a concept of just how insane this entire NFL thing is going to get.

Papa conserves his 2-year-old kid after seeing story on dry drowning disaster

(MEREDITH/KTRK)– A Colorado father is thanking a household in Houston for a warning that saved his son’s life. The Houston family shared their experience of losing their kid to the threats of dry drowning, and the story rapidly went viral.

He’s grateful to the Houston household gotten rid of by tragedy, yet brave enough to share four-year-old Frankie Delgado’s story.

Frankie passed away recently in what’s presumed to be an uncommon type of drowning called “dry or secondary drowning.” It happens when a child breathes in water and the fluid stays in the lungs for hours.

Memorial Day weekend, Frankie went swimming with his family in Texas City.

“He started experiencing stomach concerns. He had diarrhea,” his auntie, Joanna Delgato, said.

After six days, Frankie’s condition aggravated, and breathing got harder

His father described Frankie’s last breath: “He just woke up, and he stated ‘Ahhhhh’. and he took his last breath. I didn’t understand what to do no more.”

The story was shared throughout the nation on social media, and moms and dads were alerted about exactly what a few teaspoons of water could do.

In Colorado, Garon Vega’s son Gio got sick after breathing in a little water from a neighborhood pool. Initially, he had a fever. Then, a cough.

“I’m seeing his heart is beating actually quickly, so significantly that I can feel it when he’s laying against my body,” Vega stated.

Vega says he saw Frankie’s story and took Gio directly to the emergency room. It’s an advantage he did.

Medical professionals evaluated Gio, and stated he was drowning.

“The x-rays did show that he had a considerable quantity of water in his lungs which it was an advantage that we brought him in since if we hadn’t have, He would not have made it through the night,” stated Vega.

Vega says he’s happy to the Delgado’s for sharing their story. Without the awareness they created, his child could have passed away too.

“Ii seem like I had to connect to the moms and dads of little Frankie and tell him, I have no idea ways to word it but, their little young boy conserved our little kid’s life. There was a purpose.”
