Wham! Bam! Play Slam! Georgia Southern Theatre & Performance to host fourth annual one-act frenzy, season auditions The Theatre & Performance program at Georgia Southern opens their performance season with the fourth annual Wham! Bam! Play Slam! The free, fun-filled performance features original scripts written, rehearsed and performed in a mere 24 hours. The opportunity calls for quickthinking and creativity by randomly matching playwrights actors and directors one night before the show. After a long night of improvising and brainstorming, playwrights put together a short play for their cast. By 3 p.m. the next day, rehearsals begin, and at 7:30 p.m. the curtain opens. Students can look forward to a great time and the opportunity to make new friends, while audiences can enjoy a preview of the talent and ingenuity to be displayed all year long. A large crowd is expected, so audience members are encouraged to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to curtain in order to get preferred seating. Individuals interested in participating should contact the program staff via email at theatre@georgiasouthern.edu. For aspiring Georgia Southern thespians, the Theatre & Performance program will be holding auditions for fall shows Aug. 16–17,

starting at 6:30 p.m., in the Center for Art & Theatre. Auditions are open to all students regardless of major. Sign-up sheets for audition times are available at the Center for Art & Theatre box office. Students will be auditioning for the shows Crumbs from the Table of Joy, written by Lynn Notttage and directed by Mical Whitaker; and She Kills Monsters, written by Qui Nguyen and directed by Nicholas Newell. Crumbs roles are open to three African American women, one white woman and one African American man and will be performed Sept. 21–28. Monsters roles are open to eight women and four men, as well as five additional actors of any gender and all ethnicities. The show will be performed Nov. 9–16. Actors need not prepare any material for the auditions and will be expected to bring a printed class and work schedule. For actors’ convenience, scripts are available online at the Communication Arts website under the "theatre" heading. Participants are asked to arrive at least 15 minutes prior to their scheduled time — and to be ready to have some fun! Further questions may be directed to the Center for Art & Theatre box office at (912) 478-5379 or at theatre@georgiasouthern.edu.w

Meet the Eagles — Defense, defense Last week, we took a look at the Georgia Southern offense. This week, let’s talk defense. We’ll start with the defensive line — a unit that is expected to be one of the best in the Sun Belt. Two Eagle defensive linemen Alex were named preseason AllConference. Jay Ellison was named to the first team and Bernard Dawson is a second-teamer. But the Eagles have a wealth of depth and experience up front. Darrius Sapp, Ryan George, Nardo Govan, Jamal Johnson and Tre Griffin are all upperclassmen who have seen significant playing time throughout their careers. Several highly touted freshmen are also ready to step in and make their mark. In addition, Jonathan Battle was recently granted a sixth year by the NCAA due to a knee injury, so he’ll be back and healthy to start the 2016 season. The linebacking corps loses Antwoine Williams from last season’s team. Williams was selected in the fifth round of the NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions after an outstanding career at Georgia Southern. But on paper, it looks like the Eagles have a very capable replacement to fill his large shoes in Ukeme Eligwe. Eligwe transferred to Georgia Southern from Florida State and has two years of eligibility left. He saw action in 13 of 14 games during the Seminoles’ national championship season of 2013. I have a feeling Eagle fans — and opposing offenses — will get to know him quickly. Unlike the defensive line, there isn’t a ton of depth at linebacker — but there is talent. Ironhead Gallon will return as one of the leaders of the defense. He was an honorable mention all-conference selection last season after recording 81 tackles (second highest on the team), 1.5 sacks and two blocked punts. Chris DeLaRosa saw action in all

13 games last season, William Bussey played in all 13 as well (although the majority of those snaps were on special teams) and Ken Butler played in 11. The secondary is young and unproven, but loaded with potential and high Brown expectations. Cornerback Darius Jones is the only returning

starter from last year’s defensive backfield, but these underclassmen stepping into starting roles pass the eyeball test, if nothing else. Vegas Harley, a very physical runner when he was at quarterback, has moved to safety. Freshmen cornerbacks Christian Mathew (6’3”), Jessie Liptrot (6’0”) and Monquavion Brinson (5’11) along with freshman safety Martial Washington (6’3”) and sophomore safety Josh Moon (6’0”) provide some size in the secondary. In fact, the Eagles have eight defensive backs on the roster that stand six feet tall or taller. Anytime you have this many young players on one unit, there will be a learning curve. But head coach Tyson Summers’ background is in coaching defensive backs, so you have to feel like this group will come along quickly. And having one of the best defensive fronts in the

league will also help tremendously. If the quarterback doesn’t have time to throw, it takes a ton of pressure off the secondary because they don’t have to cover receivers for nearly as long. Hopefully, the offense can consistently put together sustained drives to keep the defense off the field as much as possible. Opening up with Savannah State and two relatively weaker conference opponents will hopefully give the newcomers time to get acclimated to their new roles. Going into the season, most armchair quarterbacks like myself expect the defense to be solid — possibly one of the best we have seen at Georgia Southern in a while. It certainly looks good on paper, but we’ll have to wait to find out when the Eagles hit the field. And we’re really getting close now — only two weeks until game week.w

Nonmembers can also experience an exhilarating morning on the river by paying $35, which includes an annual membership. Additionally, there is a small fee for rental boats if paddlers do not have one. To make trips like this possible, Ogeechee Riverkeeper last month launched a new fundraising campaign, “Power the Paddle.” The nonprofit’s goal is to raise $6,500, which will allow Ogeechee Riverkeeper to buy additional kayaks and a new canoe trailer so they can accommodate larger groups on the water. Donors may contribute to this initiative online, and they have the opportunity to create their own fundraising pages, set goals, and share their pages with friends and family via social media. For instructions on how to set up your own fundraising page to compete for prizes, please visit http://ogeecheeriverkeeper.org/ become-a-fundraiser/.

Q: How long do dental sealants last? A: A sealant is a plastic coating that is flowed into the

grooves and crevices that are on the tops of the tooth. First, the tooth is cleaned thoroughly, and any debris is removed from the cracks and crevices. Then the tooth is treated with a bonding agent by flowing the plastic into the grooves. The excess can be seen on the tops of the tooth. Often the plastic is colored white to aid in monitoring the sealants at the cleaning appointments. The top part of the sealant often wears away in 3-5 years. However, the part of the plastic that is in the grooves seems to last much longer than 3-5 years

Study: Women dominate NBC'S prime time During the first half of the Olympics, women have dominated the screen on NBC in the evening. Through the night of Saturday, August 13, 58.5 percent of the competition time on NBC's prime-time telecasts involved women's sports, with 41.5 percent devoted to men, according to research released Monday by three college professors writing a book, Olympic Television: Inside the Biggest Show on Earth. For all of the Summer and Winter Olympics dating back to 1994, the 2012 London Games was the only competition where women got more airtime than the men — and even that didn't match the imbalance of Rio de Janeiro so far, said Andy Billings, a sports media professor at the University of Alabama. "I think it shows that NBC is very progressive compared to any other form of sports media," said Billings, who conducted the research with James Angelini of the University of Delaware and Paul MacArthur of Utica College. NBC has been among media

outlets criticized for incidents of alleged sexism regarding the Olympics. An NBC sportscaster, for example, credited a Hungarian swimmer's husband for a career turnaround. An NBC executive's comment last month that NBC sought a reality show-like narrative flow to its coverage to appeal to women not interested in sports angered some women who are. "We take great pride in knowing that no one devotes more broadcast network prime-time coverage to women's sports than NBC," said Jim Bell, executive producer of the Olympics. Through noon Monday, U.S. women had earned a total of 34 medals in Rio de Janeiro, 16 of them gold. Men had 32 medals, nine of them gold. Much of the disparity can be explained by women's dominance in some of the sports that NBC follows most closely in its prime-time telecast. For instance, women's gymnastics has accounted for nearly three hours more screen time for women, Billings said. The U.S. women's team and

United States' Simone Biles performs on the balance beam during the artistic gymnastics women's apparatus final at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Monday, Aug. 15. Simone Biles have dominated gymnastics in Rio, while American men have been less competitive. Women's beach volleyball — where the competitors wear bikinis — has logged 2 hours, 45 minutes on NBC's marquee telecast, the study found. The men had been on for 35 seconds. "We'd be naive if we didn't acknowledge that the sports they are showing, a lot of them involve women in swimsuits and leotards," Billings said. While this may appeal to men,

Oakes Fegley is Pete in Disney's “Pete's Dragon," the story of a boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot, who just happens to be a dragon.

Deseret News

'Pete's Dragon' darkly different from original 2016 will be remembered for a lot of things, but on the big screen, you could call it The Year of the Feral Child. Starting with “The Jungle Book” and continuing with “The Legend of Tarzan,” “Pete’s Dragon” marks the third film since spring that tells or builds on the story of a young boy lost in the wilderness. That may come as a surprise to those who remember the first “Pete’s Dragon” from 1977, which was set in early 20th century New England. The 2016 edition

switches coasts, re-writes the story and ramps up the production quality. (The dragon is still green, though.) The new “Pete’s Dragon” opens with a dark but discreet prologue. A married couple is killed in a tragic car crash while on vacation in the Pacific Northwest, and their young son is left alone in the wilderness with only a shadowy, furry figure to protect him. Fast-forward six years, and “Pete’s Dragon” settles into its present storyline ("present" looking like some-

it generally doesn't turn off women, he said. Meanwhile, boxing is an example of a sport that doesn't appeal to women at all, and it has gotten no prime-time coverage at all. So far this Olympics, NBC's prime-time audience has been 55 percent women. With the dominance of Michael Phelps, male swimmers have received an hour's more airtime than women, and men had an edge in early coverage of track and field, Billings said. He expects the gender disparity to grow closer by the end of the games.w

On one, a logging company led by an overzealous lumberjack named Gavin (Karl Urban) is cutting dangerously close to Elliot and Pete’s cave. On another, an idealistic forest ranger named Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard) has started to notice some peculiar goings-on in the

forest. She’s always been a grounded, “see it to believe it” type, contrary to her father Meacham (Robert Redford), who tells local kids about the time he came face to face with a huge green dragon in the forest long ago. There’s additional tension between Grace and Gavin beyond the logging issue, since Gavin’s brother Jack (Wes Bentley) — who runs the company — also happens to be Grace’s boyfriend.

Unfriended? Divisive presidential campaign roils Facebook, and the Associated Press wrote a story about it. Really. By Dan Sewell, Associated Press CINCINNATI — Some friends don't let friends talk politics anymore on Facebook. Others are on "unfriending" sprees. And some, such as Adolfo Olivas of Hamilton, Ohio, have decided to just shut down their accounts, as the divisive presidential campaign causes a deluge of news feeds amid photos of smiling kids' first day of school and what's on the grill for dinner. The last straw for the former Republican mayor came after GOP nominee Donald Trump's criticism of fellow Gold Star parents, the Muslim parents of Iraq war casualty Humayun Khan. "Just reading all of those comments justifying Mr. Trump's outbursts," explained Olivas, whose son Nicholas, 20, was killed on Army patrol in Afghanistan in 2012. "I cannot stand to put up with the stupidity of those who will try to justify those words!" The giant social network has emerged as a virtual town hall for political debate, an easy place to share opinions — and vitriolic attacks — about the two polarizing presidential candidates.

Facebook says that from Jan. 1 through Aug. 1, 100 million people on Facebook in the United States generated 4 billion posts, comments, shares and reactions about the election. More than 1 billion of those came in July, the month of the national conventions officially nominating Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton. Facebook counts 205 million active monthly users in the United States. Katie Harbath, Facebook's global politics and government outreach director, said in a statement that the network "is giving more people a voice in the political process, enabling a robust two-way dialogue between candidates and voters the likes we haven't seen before." Facebook didn't have "unfriending" numbers, but that online action of cutting off communication appears to be on the rise this summer along with the other election-related activity. "I've seen that myself increasingly," said Scott Talan, an American University communication teacher who studies social media and politics. "They range from pretty harsh, graphically laced, attacks upon

Ice Bucket Challenge leads to ALS breakthrough Sara Weber, Deseret News Remember two years ago when shaky videos of celebrities, friends and families dumping buckets of icy water on each other's heads took hold of social media and local news broadcasts? While it may seem the Ice Bucket Challenge was mostly just a silly way to douse loved ones in freezing cold water

and consequently raise awareness of a disease, it has actually contributed to a major breakthrough in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) research. DNA research group Project MinE announced this week that it found a new gene, NEK1 that is common among ALS patients. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke estimates that 90 to 95 percent of ALS cases occur randomly and

people ... to statements of 'if you support this person, you can no longer be my friend.'" Talan says the popularity and ease of use on Facebook combined with two candidates with remarkably high negative ratings among voters fuel "very visceral" debates that go to people's strong personal values and identity. Joseph Alfini, 62, of Sarasota, Florida, is among users who have declared Facebook moratoriums: no more politics! "I am done with political posts; negative, harmful words back and forth," Alfini wrote recently. "Some people are real brave sitting behind a keyboard. Everyone should be able to vote (for) who they want to without influence and negativity."

Talan said on the bright side, the lively Facebook debates are healthy signs of Americans exercising their free speech rights and of voter engagement in the political process. Among his suggestions: ▲ Try to use civilized tones and decorum in your posts. ▲ "Take a breath or two" and think it through before commenting on a friend's post or unfriending someone. ▲ Instead of sharp opinion statements, pose questions such as "how can we trust her?" or "is he stable enough to be president?" ▲ Remember that this will all be over in November, and your friendships could and should outlast the next presidential term. ▲ And, in general, "try not to be like the candidates."w

"with no clear associated risk factors," so the gene identification could help researchers develop better drugs and medications for treatment. According to CNN, NEK1 is the third ALS-related gene discovered with funds raised by the Ice Bucket Challenge. The challenge required people to either film themselves dumping icy water on their heads or donate to ALS research, which had critics rolling their eyes at the idea of passive "slacktivism." But six weeks after the challenge went viral, the ALS Association reported it had received more than $115 million in donations. According to the ALS Association,

$77 million of that went to research; $23 million went to patient and community service; $10 million went to public and professional education; $3 million went to fundraising; and $2 million went to external processing fees. The rest went into investments, Quartz reported. Of the $77 million that went toward research, $1 million went to Project MinE — which is seeking to examine the DNA of 15,000 ALS patients and 7,500 people without the disease. The money was used to extend the group's research to the United States. According to a recent press release by the ALS Association, Project MinE has currently collected 35 percent of its goal.w

LEO (July 23–Aug. 22) — You will experience déjà vu. Emotions will surface, causing problems at home if you aren't cognizant of what those around you want. Do your best to please others, but don't ignore your needs. VIRGO (Aug. 23– Sept. 22) — Don't leave anything to chance. Make domestic changes and use your money wisely. Compassion and understanding are sufficient when dealing with outsiders. Sound familiar? LIBRA (Sept. 23– Oct. 23) — Get your chores out of the way and make the adjustments that will ensure you get to do something enjoyable before the end of the day. You may experience déjà vu. SCORPIO (Oct. 24– Nov. 22) — Set the standard. Share your intentions and move forward with or without the help of others. Romance will improve your relationship with someone special. You might have a sense of déjà vu. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23–Dec. 21) — Refuse to let anyone guilt you into doing things you don't want to do. Arguing is a waste of time. You may get the sneaking sense you've heard this advice before. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22– Jan. 19) — Listen to any tips or suggestions being offered in order to find a unique way to deal with a perplexing situation. You didn't follow this advice well last week, which is why we're telling you again.

DRAGON, from page 10 Director David Lowery tells his story with a deliberate pace that maintains an air of mystery and enchantment, but the results might strain the attention span of younger viewers. One thing that isn’t mysterious — in spite of the film’s marketing — is Elliot’s look. We meet him right away in the movie’s prologue, but even though the dragon is often draped in shadow — the whole film is pretty dark in terms of its cinematography — there is little to no effort to hide Elliot from audiences. Even though the heavy darkness might be a turn-off for some audiences,

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20– Feb. 19) — Keep an open mind, but don't let anyone use emotional manipulation on you. If something doesn't feel right, do your own thing. You may experience déjà vu. PISCES (Feb. 20– March 20) — Someone you have dealt with in the past will be your ticket to a new beginning. Don't hesitate to reconnect and make an offer that's impossible to refuse. You may experience déjà vu. ARIES (March 21– April 19) — Legal or financial contracts are highlighted. Negotiate on your own behalf. An idea you have will change the way you move forward professionally. For clarification, revisit last week's Connect horoscope. TAURUS (April 20– May 20) — Do whatever feels right. It's a good time to turn an idea into a going concern. Make plans to celebrate with someone you love. Playtime will ease stress. You may experience déjà vu. GEMINI (May 21– June 20) — Proceed with caution. If you rely on someone else, you will be disappointed. It's still up to you to bring about positive change, so stop reading the horoscope and move. CANCER (June 21– July 22) — The lifestyle changes you make will encourage you to get back to the people and activities that you enjoy the most. You, also, may experience déjà vu.w

“Pete’s Dragon” is a beautiful film that makes the most of its setting. It also has a unique way of blending a real-world context with a character design that would seem more at home in a bright, Pixar-style world. Even though the film is a dramatic departure from the 1977 original, there is a feeling that the new “Pete’s Dragon” is designed with nostalgic adults in mind as much as for its younger viewers. If “The Jungle Book” is aimed squarely at the little ones, and “Tarzan” is meant for grown-ups, then “Pete’s Dragon” splits the difference as a contemplative and beautiful movie with just enough action to keep things interesting.w
