This home was originally designed as a single-level house for a mature couple wishing to move out of the bustling city center. We ended up designing the home as a reaction to local regulations that dictated the shape and color of the roof. The second story continues all the way to the covered veranda, which, like the main living space, has two floors.Save this picture!Courtesy of ProdesiThe final project differs very little from the initial idea and sketches. The basic concept is that of “a house within a house.” Only about two-thirds of the total area of the house is heated living space. This wooden building is enclosed by an outer structure (regulation brick red) featuring interspaces and covered verandas. The overhang of the roof keeps the sun out, especially on the southern glass façade so that window coverings are not needed.Save this picture!Courtesy of ProdesiThe internal layout of the building is traditional yet logical in its aspect. On the southern side natural sunlight warms the living areas. The cooler section of the building on the north wall houses more the utilitarian rooms. The main living space is divided into two levels joined by a conventional staircase. The master bedroom, guest room, and another room that might serve as a workshop are also on the ground floor. In the attic “galleria” there is a second level of living space and the entrance to the second level of the covered veranda. The interior of the covered veranda is lined with larch paneling.Save this picture!Plan 1On the ground floor one can enter both verandas. The veranda on the south wall is narrow. The covered main veranda features a built-in larch bench and a large exterior window fitted with a white shutter for maximum privacy.Save this picture!Courtesy of ProdesiIt is advantageous that the plot of land was once the garden to an old recreational building. We were able to erect the new house into an established environment, which the landscape architects soon made into a very pleasant garden space.Save this picture!Plan 2The aspect of the lot is ideal, with an access road from the north.

Council takes financial hit

first_imgPrint Facebook NewsLocal NewsCouncil takes financial hitBy admin – October 1, 2009 727 Advertisement Twitter Development levies and rates unpaidOVER three million euro is due to Limerick City Council in development levies and just 45 per cent of rates have been collected, it was revealed this week. And a warning has been issued that it will be extremely difficult to adopt a Budget for next year, because of the number of shop closures in the city and the reduction in Local Government funding by between five and seven per cent.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Cllr  Joe Leddin told a meeting of City Council this week that there’s 3.1million euro in outstanding development levies not collected, and asked if it was possible to let councillors know who owes what, as some of this money is outstanding for years. “Many people who made a fortune in the Celtic Tiger years, now owe this council a fortune”.The city manager, Tom Mackey, said that the major rate bases are not within the city.“We are at a disadvantage because of limited rate bases within the city – on the northside (which was ceded to the city by the boundary extension granted in March 2008),  the rates collected there would equate to the cost of running the area.“Our borders are constrained, which affects our income,” he said.Responding to concern expressed that the economic crisis could result in cuts to essential services, Mr Mackey said the council has 90 million euro from the Department of Local Government, to deploy on running the city and must get the very best value for that amount of expenditure.Regarding staffing levels, he told the meeting that out of the 35 local authorities in the country, Limerick City Council is in the top three for staffing levels, percentage-wise.“Our spend on staff is exceptionally high and we will have to curtail staffing limits”.Cllr Pat Kennedy, who earlier warned that the healthcare of employees must be protected in terms of one employee not having to do the work of five, urged that rather than wait until the Book of Estimates is being prepared for next year’s budget for the city, that the council should meet soon, to examine and discuss the issue.Confirming that a special meeting focusing solely on the city’s finances will be held in the next few weeks, Mayor Kevin Kiely told the councillors that this will be held “in camera.”center_img Previous articleTime for some revenge?Next articleRecession impacts on Castletroy landlords admin WhatsApp Email Linkedinlast_img read more

Coronavirus updates: Hydroxychloroquine given to 1,300 US veterans with COVID-19

first_imgnarvikk/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 333,000 people worldwide.Over 5.1 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations’ outbreaks.Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the United States has become the worst-affected country, with more than 1.5 million diagnosed cases and at least 94,729 deaths. Here’s how the news is developing Friday. All times Eastern:1:30 p.m.: At least 80 million children at risk of missing routine immunizations: WHOThe World Health Organization began its daily briefing with an urgent warning that millions of children around the world are in danger of missing critical routine immunizations.At least 80 million children under the age of 1 are at risk of diseases such as diphtheria, measles and polio as the pandemic disrupts routine vaccination efforts, according to the WHO and UNICEF.World leaders will come together on June 4 for the Global Vaccine Summit to help maintain immunization programs and mitigate the impact of the pandemic in lower-income countries, the WHO said.“Disruption to immunization programs from the COVID-19 pandemic threatens to unwind decades of progress against vaccine-preventable diseases like measles,” Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO’s director general, said in a statement.The WHO briefing also touched on the pandemic’s progression throughout the world, including that South America has “become a new epicenter.”Brazil was said to be the most affected country at this point.As for vaccines, the WHO said there are now 10 in clinical studies, meaning they have progressed to a stage where they are being tested in people.There are at least 114 vaccines still being tested in a lab, according to the WHO.1:15 p.m.: Florida to open summer campsYouth activities in Florida, including summer camp and athletics, will be allowed to begin immediately, Gov. Ron DeSantis said.DeSantis acknowledged that children are not immune to the virus.“Some kids have been infected and some kids have ended up critically ill,” the governor said. “There have been some, not a lot in the United States who have died. I think though the data is pretty clear that for whatever reason, kids don’t seem to get infected at the same rates that some other adults get infected.”12:46 p.m.: UK announces new quarantine measures for travelers from June 8Travelers entering the United Kingdom will have to quarantine for 14 days beginning June 8, the government announced.The new quarantine requirements were expected and are an effort to stop a second wave of infections.U.K. nationals will also be required to quarantine.Spot checks could be conducted for those who enter on or after June 8 to enforce the new rule, and anyone who breaks quarantine will be issued a 1,000 pound fine.12:30 p.m.: NJ to allow gatherings of up to 25 peopleThe death toll in New Jersey is approaching 11,000, Gov. Phil Murphy said.The state’s current death toll is at 10,985, according to Murphy.There are more than 152,000 positive cases across the Garden State, which has slowly started to reopen. Murphy announced that gatherings from 10 to 25 people will now be allowed and recreational campgrounds can reopen.Any organized gatherings, however, must have clear markings to maintain social distancing and any participants are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings.12:24 p.m.: Miami-Dade County beaches may reopen June 1Officials in Miami-Dade County, including Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez, said they are aiming to reopen the beaches on June 1.City managers will be meeting with county staff and medical experts over the weekend to determine rules that would be in place for a “safe and secure reopening,” according to a statement from the county.The reopening would be accompanied with the expansion of hotel accommodations, the statement said.11:47 a.m.: Death toll to exceed 110,000 by June 13: CDCAlthough COVID-19 deaths in the United States are likely to slow down, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention anticipates they will still exceed 110,000 by June 13.The CDC says states with low numbers of deaths reported to date will most likely not see a rapid rise in the coming weeks, while states with high numbers to date are likely to see increases “at varying rates.”An ABC News analysis predicts that the number of fatalities could reach 100,000 in the next few days.There has been an average of 1,200 deaths each day, based on the ABC News analysis.The official death in the U.S. is 94,729, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.11:33 a.m.: 2 more NY regions could begin reopening next weekLong Island and mid-Hudson could begin reopening by next week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said.Cuomo said it will depend on if the deaths continue to decline and if contract tracing ramps up.Throughout the state, the number of hospitalizations and new cases per day were down.Cuomo called the daily death toll “stubborn.” An additional 109 people died in the last 24 hours, according to the governor.He announced that a new pilot program was launched, with 52 independent hospitals that would allow the state to conduct 7,000 more tests per week. This is in addition to the 700 plus locations where New Yorkers can already get tested.Cuomo urged all New Yorkers to get tested.With Memorial Day weekend coming up, he also pleaded with residents to stay vigilant if they go out to parks or beaches.10:50 a.m.: Hydroxychloroquine given to 1,300 US veterans who tested positive for COVID-19The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has administered hydroxychloroquine to some 1,300 American veterans who tested positive for the novel coronavirus, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Friday.In response to Schumer’s questions in a letter sent earlier this month, U.S. Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert Wilkie wrote that around 13% of the more than 10,000 veterans currently being treated for COVID-19 at VA medical facilities have been given the antimalarial drug so far. That includes residents of the Long Island State Veterans Home in Stony Brook, New York, which has one of the highest number of reported coronavirus-related deaths of any nursing home on Long Island.Wilkie wrote in his letter, which the New York Democrat released to the press Friday, that more veterans are set to receive hydroxychloroquine as part of previously unannounced clinical trials.“What the information presented to me by the VA shows is that the original VA study on hydroxychloroquine that everyone was concerned over is really just the beginning,” Schumer said in a statement. “What I am able to say today is that more than 1,000 vets have been given hydroxychloroquine, a clinical trial is set to launch in California and other states that could begin as soon as next week. Why did we not know this until now? What happened to the 1,300 vets who took this drug so far and where will the next trials take place. We need these answers and we need them now.”9:22 a.m.: Study shows coronavirus patients treated with Trump-touted antimalarial drug at higher risk of deathA study of more than 96,000 coronavirus patients in hospitals around the world found that those who were treated with chloroquine or its analogue hydroxychloroquine had a considerably higher risk of death than those who did not receive the antimalarial drugs.Findings from the study, published Friday in the Lancet medical journal, show that COVID-19 patients who received these medications, either alone or in combination with macrolide antibiotic, were also more likely to develop serious cardiac arrhythmias, which cause the lower chamber of the heart to beat rapidly and irregularly.“This is the first large-scale study to find statistically robust evidence that treatment with chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine does not benefit patients with COVID-19,” Dr. Mandeep Mehra, lead author of the study and executive director of the Brigham and Women’s Hospital Center for Advanced Heart Disease in Boston, said in a statement. “Instead, our findings suggest it may be associated with an increased risk of serious heart problems and increased risk of death. Randomized clinical trials are essential to confirm any harms or benefits associated with these agents. In the meantime, we suggest these drugs should not be used as treatments for COVID-19 outside of clinical trials.”A team of researchers analyzed data from 96,032 patients hospitalized between Dec. 20, 2019, and April 14 who had tested positive for the novel coronavirus at 671 hospitals across six of the world’s seven continents — North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and Australia. All of the patients included in the study had either been discharged or had died by April 21.The team assessed the outcomes of 1,868 patients who were treated with chloroquine alone, 3,016 patients treated with just hydroxychloroquine, 3,783 patients treated with chloroquine in combination with a macrolide and 6,221 patients treated with hydroxychloroquine in combination with a macrolide. Patients from these four groups were compared with the remaining control group of 81,144 patients.At the end of the study, around one in 11 patients in the control group had died in the hospital. All four treatment regimens were associated with a higher risk of dying in the hospital. Of those treated with just chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine, around one in six patients had died. When the drugs were used in combination with a macrolide, the death rate increased to more than one in five for chloroquine and almost one in four for hydroxychloroquine.“Several countries have advocated use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, either alone or in combination, as potential treatments for COVID-19,” Dr. Frank Ruschitzka, who co-authored the study and is the director of the Heart Center at University Hospital Zurich, said in a statement. “Justification for repurposing these medicines in this way is based on a small number of anecdotal experiences that suggest they may have beneficial effects for people infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus. However, previous small-scale studies have failed to identify robust evidence of a benefit and larger, randomized controlled trials are not yet completed. However, we now know from our study that the chance that these medications improve outcomes in COVID-19 is quite low.”Chloroquine is an antimalarial drug and its analogue, hydroxychloroquine, is used to treat autoimmune diseases, including arthritis and lupus. Both medications have been deemed generally safe when used for those specific conditions, and the study’s findings do not imply patients should stop taking those drugs if already prescribed. The two drugs have also been shown in laboratory conditions to have antiviral properties as well as immunomodulatory effects, which is why they are seen as potential treatments for COVID-19.The study’s revelations come just days after U.S. President Donald Trump announced he was taking daily doses of hydroxychloroquine as a preventive measure against the novel coronavirus after two White House staffers tested positive earlier this month. Trump has touted the drug as a possible “game changer” treatment for COVID-19, although there’s no evidence it works as a prophylactic for COVID-19.8:28 a.m.: Italians told not to expect a vaccine this yearThe head of the Italian Medicines Agency (AIFA), the national authority responsible for drug regulation in Italy, said Friday that a vaccine for the novel coronavirus won’t be ready until next year. AIFA director-general Nicola Magrini told reporters that studies of five or six vaccines are showing promise but “the reasonable time to think about a vaccine is next spring, next summer.” “I don’t think there will be any vaccine for September available,” Magrini said. “Let’s hope they are developed by next year and let’s hope there’s more than one, and the production capacities are adequate.” Magrini’s comments echoed those of Marco Cavaleri, head of vaccines at the European Medicines Agency, who said last week that having a vaccine ready by the start of 2021 would be “optimistic” since the development of the drug “has to start from scratch.”7:35 a.m.: Chechen leader reportedly hospitalized with suspected COVID-19There are widespread reports in Russian media that the strongman of the country’s Chechnya region has been hospitalized in Moscow with suspected coronavirus symptoms. At least two Russian state news agencies, RIA Novosti and Tass, have reported that Chechnya’s dictatorial leader, Ramzan Kadyrov, was admitted to a Moscow hospital. An anonymous source told Tass that Kadyrov’s condition is “stable” and that he is “under observation by doctors.”Russian independent tabloid outlet Baza first reported the news on Thursday, saying that Kadyrov was flown to Moscow where he was being treated for COVID-19 at one of the top clinics in the Russian capital. Citing anonymous sources, Baza reported that the Chechen leader had been advised by his doctors to be taken to Moscow after his condition worsened. He has not been officially diagnosed for COVID-19 but has been suffering from respiratory symptoms for several days, according to Baza’s sources. Flight trackers show that a plane associated with Kadyrov indeed flew to Moscow from Chechnya on Thursday. Kadyrov’s spokespersons have not directly denied the reports. Instead, Chechen information minister, Dzhambulat Umarov, published two posts on social media late Thursday night, one of which was an old video showing Kadyrov praying in one of his palaces while the other was a meme mocking journalists for asking if the Chechen leader was sick.6:51 a.m.: India reports over 6,000 new cases in largest single-day jumpIndia reported its largest single-day jump in new coronavirus cases on Friday. The Indian Ministry of Health and Family Welfare registered 6,088 new cases of COVID-19 in the last 24 hours, bringing the nationwide total to 118,447. The country’s death toll due to the coronavirus pandemic also rose to 3,583 on Friday. Meanwhile, more than 48,000 people have recovered from the disease, according to data released by the health ministry.Maharashtra remains the worst-hit state in India by far, with more than 41,642 COVID-19 cases with 1,454 deaths. India, a country of 1.3 billion people, has the 11th-most cases in the world, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.6:22 a.m.: Russia reports record high of new deathsAs Russia continues to see a steady rise of new coronavirus infections, the daily number of new deaths has hit an all-time high in the country.Russia’s coronavirus response headquarters reported 8,894 new cases of COVID-19 and 150 fatalities over the past 24 hours. The nationwide total now stands at 326,448 diagnosed cases with 3,249 deaths.The number of new deaths reported Friday breaks the country’s previous record of 135 reported just two days earlier.Meanwhile, the latest daily caseload is down from a peak of 11,656 new infections reported on May 11. Last Thursday marked the end of a 12-day streak during which Russia registered over 10,000 new cases per day. Since then, the daily number of new infections has hovered around 9,000 per day.Russia has the second-highest highest number of diagnosed COVID-19 cases in the world, behind the United States, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.5:40 a.m.: Italy sees spike in daily coronavirus deaths after drop-offItaly has reported a spike in new deaths from the novel coronavirus, just days after seeing a promising drop-off.The country’s Civil Protection Department registered 156 fatalities from COVID-19 in the last 24 hours, bringing the nationwide toll to 32,486.The daily caseload was back up after falling below 100 on Monday for the first time since the start of the pandemic.Overall, more than 228,000 people in Italy have been diagnosed with COVID-19.Once the worst-hit country in Europe, Italy was the first nation in the world to put a nationwide lockdown in place due to the pandemic. The country began to slowly lift the strict lockdown earlier this month. Most businesses have since resumed activities but under social distancing rules, with shops, restaurants, hair salons and churches reopening Monday. 3:45 a.m.: Researchers aim to vaccinate over 10,000 adults and children across UKUniversity of Oxford researchers testing an experimental vaccine against the novel coronavirus now aim to immunize more than 10,000 people to determine if it works.Scientists at the oldest university in the English-speaking world began immunizing more than 1,000 healthy adult volunteers in southern England in April with their vaccine candidate in the initial phase of a clinical trial. The University of Oxford announced on Friday that its researchers are moving into advanced studies, which would enroll up to 10,260 adults and children across the United Kingdom.“The clinical studies are progressing very well and we are now initiating studies to evaluate how well the vaccine induces immune responses in older adults, and to test whether it can provide protection in the wider population,” Andrew Pollard, head of the university’s Oxford Vaccine Group, said in a statement Friday.The potential vaccine is made from a virus, which is a weakened version of a common cold that causes infections in chimpanzees, that has been genetically changed so that it is impossible for it to replicate in humans. The harmless virus is used to carry the coronavirus spike protein into the body, according to the university.Phase one of the human trials has been completed and follow-up is currently ongoing. The second phase will expand the age range of participants who receive the vaccine candidate to include a small number of older adults and children. Researchers will be assessing the immune response to the vaccine candidate in the different age groups to find out if there is variation in how well the immune system responds in older adults or children, the university said.The third phase of the study involves assessing how the vaccine candidate works in a large number of people over the age of 18 to see how well it works to prevent them from becoming infected and unwell with COVID-19. Adult participants in both phase two and three will be randomized to receive one or two doses of either the vaccine candidate or a licensed meningitis vaccine that will be used as a “control” for comparison, according to the university.Pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca announced earlier this week it had booked orders for at least 400 million doses of the potential vaccine being developed by the University of Oxford. The U.K.-based multinational company said it has the capacity to manufacture 1 billion doses of the as yet unproven vaccine and would begin delivering them in September. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

MARCOM holds tactical level mine-countermeasure exercise

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today MARCOM holds tactical level mine countermeasure exercise View post tag: Mine-Countermeasures View post tag: MARCOM March 14, 2016 Authoritiescenter_img MARCOM holds tactical level mine countermeasure exercise NATO’s Maritime Command gathered 160 participants from 19 countries, including Partnership for Peace (PFP) countries Finland and Sweden, for the annual two-week long Allied Maritime Command (MARCOM) tactical-level Mine Counter Measure (MCM) Command Post Exercise (CPX) which started March 7.The exercise is hosted by the Belgium-Netherlands Naval Mine Warfare School EGUERMIN and supported by the collocated NATO Naval Mine Warfare Center of Excellence.The main objective is to improve the capabilities of NATO forces to integrate and respond to a crisis where waterborne mines are a threat by testing MCM forces’ abilities to operate in the littorals and clear the sea ways for other maritime forces to safely conduct operations.Royal Norwegian Navy Captain Svein Kvalvaag, the exercise director, said: “One of the most important take aways from this exercise is multinational engagement. During this exercise we encourage nations to mix and collaborate.”This year’s training audience includes personnel from Standing NATO Mine Counter-Measures Group 1 (SNMCMG1) and the group’s incoming commander. The annual NATO exercise, designed to test naval mine counter-measures (MCM) tactics and procedures, is facilitated by a team of MARCOM staff officers, naval mine warfare experts, and scientists from NATO and PFP nations.

Temptations Brought Motown to the Music Pier

first_imgBy Matt KoellingDue to the amount of time passed by, plus myriad of line-up shifts, in the fifty-seven years since The Temptations first signed to Motown, it was easy to head into Monday night’s sold-out show at the Ocean City Music Pier with tempered expectations. This is, after all, a group whose many trials and tribulations, along with personnel changes, made for a network television mini-series in 1998. The lone surviving member of the group’s original line-up, baritone Otis Williams, is the author of a 1988 autobiography that NBC’s The Temptations was based upon.The most memorable line from that four-hour TV event was troubled lead-singer David Ruffin coldly declaring “ain’t nobody coming to see you, Otis”. Ironically, almost fifty years after Ruffin’s firing from the group, and twenty-five since his tragic demise, people are still coming out to see Otis. Or perhaps more accurately, they’re coming out to see The Temptations, in whatever form they can get.It was just after 7 PM, on a beautifully sunny and mild evening on the boardwalk, when the 2017 incarnation of The Temptations, along with the Temptations Orchestra, took the stage while instructing five generations of fans in attendance to “Get ready, ‘cause here I come”. Almost immediately this reporter realized that any reservations he might’ve had, about what level of show The Temptations were bringing to the stage nowadays, were unfounded. Despite the lack of participants from the group’s “Classic Five” era, the stage was still littered with veteran show-business talent, ready to give the people what they wanted.This included a sprinkling of appropriate covers during different portions of the soul-revue styled show: Bob Marley’s “Stir It Up” to blend in some beach-inspired positive vibrations, McFadden and Whitehead’s “Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now” as a nod to the born-nearby Philadelphia sound, “Old Man River” with Otis reprising the vocal first sung by Paul Robeson on Broadway as a tribute to the struggles and sacrifices made by their ancestors, and even the chanted chorus from Sly and The Family Stone’s “Sing A Simple Song” late in the proceedings to galvanize some wordlessly passionate crowd participation.Still, the main draw was all the classic cuts this group has brought to the popular music cannon. How many acts have added more classic records to the Great American Songbook than The Temptations? That list is very short, if there’s even any act on the list at all. To hear so many of them, performed with reverence, in staggering succession, can feel a bit overwhelming in the best sense of the word.You don’t get to be onstage, on a show billed as The Temptations, if you can’t sing or play at the highest level. Monday night was further proof of that fact. Former Tower of Power lead singer Larry Braggs did yeoman’s work in the lead tenor slot. Ron Tyson, whose first appearance in the “Eddie Kendricks” role came on live TV back in 1983 at Motown 25, continues to hold those falsetto notes for three decades and counting. Terry “Babyface” Weeks, who sung lead on the group’s last two hits in their late-90’s renaissance, showed on “Stay” why he had been tapped to replace ailing-from-throat-cancer late-great lead singer Ali-Ollie Woodson. The quintet is then filled out capably by relative newcomer, circa 2002, former George Harrison and Dolly Parton collaborator, Willie “Always Clean” Green on bass.While the fellas up front didn’t miss a step, in their trademark matching jackets, much of the heavy musical lifting continued to be done by The Temptations Orchestra, led by musical director/producer/arranger McKinley Jackson, who first came to fame by doing the same for fellow Motown legend Marvin Gaye. Jackson came out on occasion from his stage-left perch to animatedly implore the seven-piece horn section to give a bit more, plus added to Braggs’ crowd work with some dancing of his own. Adrian Williams’ guitar dutifully brought Detroit funk to “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” and some prescribed psychedelia to “Cloud Nine”.The hits were seemingly endless. You know all of these songs, and it felt like they played them all. “The Way You Do the Things You Do” got the crowd shimmying in their seats early, but “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” was the first to get them standing up and dancing. Braggs channeled some of Ruffin’s vocal pain on “I Wish It Would Rain”. Tyson found his way towards Kendricks’ dreamy high lead on “Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me)”. By the time the group got around to performing “The Temptations National Anthem”, aka “My Girl”, the capacity crowd was standing and swaying their hands back and forth above their heads.Filing out shortly after the set closer, a fiery “I’m Losing You”, with a wide smile on her face, was Philadelphia-raised, long-time Ocean City seasonal resident Donna Gamber. Having seen Gamber earlier in the evening, escorting an 87-year-old woman she’d met seated nearby out to the aisle for a dance, we asked for her thoughts on the show, even though her answer was readily apparent before doing so. “They’re always great. I’ve been going to see The Temps since the Sixties, when they were playing the Uptown Ballroom in Philly and the Steel Pier in Atlantic City.” When bringing up her dance partner, Gamber was quick to exclaim, “wasn’t she amazing, that woman was 87!”, further marveling at founder Otis Williams, managing to be onstage for two hours “still doing all the steps, at 74”.While it may be nostalgia that first draws these fans inside the door, the end result of an event that manages to honor this legendary group, on a night like this, becomes something more. Regardless of whether you never have before, or like Donna Gamber have done so countless times, the next time The Temptations are coming in your Jersey shore direction, go shower them with love and affection.last_img read more
