Rent Is Streaming on Netflix! Five Reasons to Give It a Second Watch

first_img Anthony Rapp 3. Angel and Collins Still Win Most Adorable Couple One of the few scenes actually shot in New York City, “I’ll Cover You,” featuring original cast members Wilson Jermaine Heredia as Angel and Jesse L. Martin as Collins, is as adorable as it was on Broadway. Just try to ignore the CGI’d breath coming out of their mouths while they sing. Adam Pascal View Comments 4. Two Words: OBC Reunion We get chills watching Anthony Rapp, Adam Pascal, Idina Menzel, Wilson Jermaine Heredia and Jesse L. Martin rocking out on that table and raising a glass to “you and you and you, you and you.” It’s always a treat to see the OBC back together again (even if they’re, oh, a good decade older than the characters are supposed to be). 1. Mark and Roger Have an Awesome Apartment These days, a loft of this size (even if it has no heat and is completely infested with rats) would get at least $3,000 a month even in Bed-Stuy. But let’s suspend our imagination for a minute and drool over the gorgeous views of New York City a Warner Brothers backlot. Here’s an excuse to get into your PJs and not go “Out Tonight”—the 2005 movie adaptation of Rent is now streaming on Netflix Instant! Sure, we’re the first to admit this movie’s got some issues—most of it wasn’t filmed in New York, it didn’t score big at the box office, and it ranks an underwhelming 46 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. But hear us out: There are five moments in the movie that really do hold a candle (“What are you staring at?”) to Jonathan Larson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway masterpiece. Grab your scarf and your stash and check out the evidence below! Idina Menzel Star Files 5. Roger Actually Goes to Santa Fe In what is by far the most ridiculous moment of the movie, Roger packs up his blue convertible and hightails it to Santa Fe, where he does lots of gazing at cactuses while his luscious Bon Jovi hair blows in the breeze. The whole “What You Own” montage is definitely worth a second look (or at least, a second laugh). 2. Rosario Dawson Makes a Kick-Ass Feline of Avenue B Getting to see the Cat Scratch Club in all its gritty glory is fun, but what really gives “Out Tonight” an added dimension is Rosario Dawson as Mimi. It would have been great to see Daphne Rubin-Vega rocking the turquoise vinyl, but if we have to have a replacement, we’ll take the fiery, sexy Rosario any day.last_img read more

H5N1 suspected at second British farm

first_imgNov 15, 2007 (CIDRAP News) – Veterinary officials in England today said they suspected H5N1 avian influenza at another poultry farm, as authorities in Saudi Arabia stamped out a large poultry flock following confirmation of the virus at a farm near the nation’s capital.Samples from the potentially affected British farm, in Suffolk, were sent for laboratory testing, the United Kingdom Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) said in a statement today.The farm is within a restricted zone surrounding the site of a recently confirmed H5N1 outbreak at a turkey farm near Diss, Suffolk. It is among four nearby farms cited yesterday by DEFRA as targets for precautionary culling. All the farms—including the outbreak site near Diss—are operated by Redgrave Poultry, and authorities say workers, veterinarians, or vehicles could have spread the H5N1 virus between them, the London Telegraph reported today.Authorities suspected the H5N1 virus at the second farm when they arrived to carry out the preventive culling and found that a number of birds were already dead, according to the Telegraph report.DEFRA said surveillance of poultry operations was under way and that it had increased monitoring of wild birds in Suffolk and neighboring Norfolk.Several possible sources citedAccording to British media reports, several possible sources of the H5N1 virus are under investigation.One is that the turkeys could have been exposed to wild birds that were attracted to a pond near the farm. However, Redgrave Poultry, in a statement posted on the Farming UK Web site, said the birds were kept in paddocks outside during the day and had access to housing at night. The company said feed and water are kept indoors to discourage wild-bird feeding. It also said electrified fencing, empty space, and a farm road separate the turkeys on the affected farm from the pond.Redgrave Poultry also said its turkey chicks and feed come from sources in the UK.Authorities are also speculating that the ducklings imported from the Netherlands or poultry products imported from other European countries by Gressingham Foods, the parent company of Redgrave Poultry, could also be sources of the H5N1 virus, The Times of London reported today. The strain found at the Diss farm is similar to H5N1 viruses found in Germany and the Czech Republic earlier this year, according to a previous report.However, Redgrave Poultry denied that the disease could have come from the ducklings, and the Dutch agriculture ministry said only one shipment of ducklings had been sent to the UK, to a site 50 kilometers from the outbreak area, the Telegraph reported.Gressingham Foods processes and packs imported specialty poultry at a plant less than 750 yards from the confirmed outbreak site near Diss, the Times report said. According to Gressingham’s Web site, the firm imports guinea fowl, quail, poussin, smoked chicken, and smoked duck.Earlier this year, British officials said an H5N1 outbreak at the Bernard Matthews turkey operation in February was probably caused by contaminated turkey meat imported from Hungary, which had an H5N1 outbreak in geese at the time. According to a DEFRA epidemiologic report released a few months after the outbreak, the Bernard Matthews farm adjoined a turkey slaughterhouse and two large processing plants that handled Hungarian turkey meat.Disease hits Saudi ArabiaIn other developments, the agriculture ministry in Saudi Arabia released a statement to the country’s media that authorities culled 50,000 birds at a farm near Riyadh after officials confirmed an H5N1 outbreak there, Reuters reported today.About 1,500 birds are believed to have died of the disease at the farm, located in al-Kharj, about 94 miles south of the capital, Reuters reported. The report did not say what type of poultry was affected.Saudi Arabia’s last reported H5N1 outbreak occurred in March when the virus struck a flock of ostriches at a hobby farm, according to a report from the World Organization for Animal Health (OIE).Elsewhere, Bangladesh has had five new H5N1 outbreaks since October, according to a report today from the UN Integrated Regional Information Networks (IRIN), part of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.Since March the country has had 55 outbreaks in 19 of its 64 districts, which has prompted the culling of 250,000 birds, the IRIN report said.The arrival of migrating waterfowl from Siberia has raised concerns about even more outbreaks in the winter months, A.S.M. Alamgir, a virologist at the country’s Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research, told IRIN.See also:Nov 13 CIDRAP News story “British officials confirm H5N1 in turkey outbreak”OIE reports on Saudi H5N1 outbreakhttp://www.oie.int/downld/AVIAN%20INFLUENZA/A2007_AI.phpNov 15 IRIN reportlast_img read more
