Oliver, Philip, and Sylvia are caught in a kind of erotic time warp. Their complex love triangle, replete with conflicting loyalties and passions, jumps from 1958 to the present and back in a maelstrom of fantasy, repression and rebellion in this innovative new drama. After taking London by storm last season in an Olivier Award-winning production at the Royal Court, The Pride now makes its American premiere in an all-new production at MCC Theater. Tony Award-winning director Joe Mantello (Glengarry Glen Ross, Take Me Out) directs this alternately tough and touching look at love and betrayal by Alexi Kaye Campbell (Apologia). Four of Britain's most acclaimed young actors, Hugh Dancy (Adam, Journey's End), Adam James (Last Chance Harvey), Andrea Riseborough (Happy-Go-Lucky) and Ben Whishaw (Bright Star, Brideshead Revisited) star.

Slava Vodka Brings Ukrainian Activists to WorldPride Toronto
by BWW News Desk - Jun 26, 2014

Ukraine will be represented at WorldPride 2014 in Toronto by four of the country's most prominent LGBT activists. The theme of WorldPride is Rise Up & these courageous souls perfectly resonate with that spirit. They are past & current organizers of KyivPride, EuroMaidan activists & crusaders for LGBT & Human Rights. The events of the last six months from EuroMaidan to Crimea to the recent presidential election have shown that all Ukrainians are fighting for their rights. But Ukraine's LGBT community has even more at stake & face a stark crossroads: Either progress toward European human rights & tolerance, or a slide into Russian-style oppression. Shortly after annexing Crimea from Ukraine, Putin enacted the same oppressive laws he imposed on Russians. Now southern & eastern Ukraine is threatened with a similar fate. May 25th marked the anniversary of The First Equality March in Kyiv, when over one hundred brave marchers faced life-threatening obstacles in order to make their voices heard. Svyatoslav (Slava) Sheremet, Olena Semenova & Taras Karasiichuk are the founding members of KyivPride. These are the same activists that fought against & prevented the oppressive anti-gay laws that were enacted in Russia from spreading to Ukraine. They were also activists with EuroMaidan in Kyiv & Donetsk, the protests that brought an end to the corrupt Yanukovych regime. To draw attention to their cause, Slava Ultra Premium Vodka ( is proud to bring these four brave people from Ukraine & has sponsored them as participants & panelists at the Human Rights Conference being held during WorldPride. They will also be marching in the parade on Sunday along with supporters from the Ukrainian-Canadian & LGBT communities. Their visit will allow them to build a global network. The group arrived in Toronto Sunday night. John Vellinga is President of Slava vodka. Asked why his company is sponsoring the four, he replied, 'we are Canadian company but our vodka is made in the birthplace of vodka, the Cherkasy region of Ukraine. Right now Ukraine has serious challenges & we wanted to do what we could to help.' He explains that Slava has been working within the Toronto area LGBT community for quite some time & saw this as the way the company could build a bridge between Ukraine & Canada. 'Not that long ago, Pride in Toronto looked a lot like the first one in Kyiv. Imagine them seeing it today - & being cheered on by millions on Yonge Street. It will give them hope & inspiration that change can - & will - happen.' 'The theme of WorldPride 2014 is Rise Up. These are people who rose up, both for the human rights of all Ukrainians & specifically for those of the lbgt community. They deserve our respect & support.' Background Information About The Visitors The following video is an inspiring backgrounder on four activists & the challenges they have faced with the situation in Ukraine - & how it has affected the LGBT community over the past 2 years. Mr. Svyatoslav (Slava) Sheremet - one of the founders of Kyiv Pride & a victim of a vicious hate crime after The Pride March was cancelled in 2012 & that received world-wide media attention. He is head of All-Ukrainian Public Organization 'Gay Forum of Ukraine.' He is a public figure & has also founded the Coalition Against Discrimination in Ukraine which unites more than 50 organizations & is a national public initiative for the development of anti-discrimination legislation & social education about human rights. Mr. Taras Karasiichuk - the current President of the All-Ukrainian Public Organization 'Gay-Alliance Ukraine' which has regional representative offices in many regions of Ukraine. He is also current co-chair of organising committee KyivPride2014 & one of founders of the event. Dr. Olena Semenova - a key organizer for the first ever Pride march held in Kyiv just over a year ago. She is also a lynchpin in fighting the 'Gay Propag&a' laws - as forced attempted to spread them from Russia to Ukraine. These are the same oppressive laws that were implemented in Russia & drew worldwide condemnation. Dr. Semenova is the co-founder & the Board Member of the Ukrainian LGBT Ngo 'The New Wave in the Better Future' that works with LGBT families in Ukraine. Dr. Maksym Kasianchuk- founder & head of the first officially registered LGBT Ngo in Donetsk 'Donbas-SocProject,' co-founder of the Ukrainian Council of LGBT Organizations, as well as a consultant & expert on LGBT issues. He was involved in EuroMaidan in Donetsk, a key flashpoint of the current tension in Ukraine. (more...)

Communications Capability Deployed in Key Air Force Command and Control Systems
by BWW News Desk - Jul 29, 2014

SPRINGFIELD, Va., July 29, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) The Tactical Voice Communications System (TVCS) developed by Cornet Technology, Inc. (CTI) is a key component of a fielded command and control (C2) system managing aircraft flying in support of combat operations. Originally fielded in 2009 in the Battlespace Command and Control Center (BC3) employed by the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) for airspace management in the Arabian Gulf region, Iraq, and Afghanistan; the TVCS fuses secure / unsecure telephones, tactical radios, and crew intercom that enables airmen, Joint, and coalition mission crewmembers to conduct air surveillance and C2 operations. An advanced version of the TVCS is being integrated into the next generation BC3 v2.0 that will soon be operational in an undisclosed location in the Arabian Gulf area.   Building on the demonstrated combat effectiveness of the BC3's TVCS; the Air Force Lifecycle Management Center (AFLCMC), Hanscom Air Force Base, Massachusetts announced the successful completion of its test of the AN/TRC-213 v3.2.  The TVCS is a key component of this mobile communications interface system that provides the USAF ground-based Control and Reporting Center (CRC) with access to over thirty-five distributed tactical UHF, VHF, HF, and SATCOM radios within any given combat theater.   'With a radar-based C2 system providing 'eyes-on' all Air Force, Joint, and Coalition aircraft movements in any area of operations, a 24/7/365 communications capability is what puts the teeth in operational C2,' said Wanda Whiteman, CTI's TVCS project lead. 'The Air Force is better able to manage airspace over a combat area when they can simultaneously provide direction to an aircraft, coordinate with supporting agencies over secure telephone, and keep BC3 and CRC mission crew leadership aware of the operation through secure intercom.'   Nat Kumar, CEO of Cornet Technology, Inc., conveyed the following, 'The Pride my employees feel when they interact with a young airman who conveys the value of the TVCS is profound. When troops-in-contact require immediate air support, the TVCS is the system used to put out the call and move the air assets to-the-fight; that motivates us every single day.' The BC3 was designed, built, tested, and delivered in less than a year by a team of contractors working for the US Navy Space Warfare Systems Center – Atlantic and the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Battle Lab using Global War on Terrorism funding. CTI is a noted expert in the design and development of communications hardware and software and takes pride in its 'MADE IN AMERICA' manufacturing capability in support of both military and emergency response agencies. CTI is a leader in Joint Battlespace communications integration and provides an effective, affordable, and reliable integrated communications solution to a wide-ranging domestic and international customer base including the US Air Force, US Navy, US Army and US Marines.
