Top 3 Employers in Memphis, TN

Image
  The city of Memphis is home to things of all shapes and sizes. This diversity means that there are plenty of companies to go along with. These employers are always looking for people to hire for the jobs they’re offering. Who are these employers/companies you ask? You can look all around the city to find them, but the top three to look at are FedEx, AutoZone, and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Jobs and their demand can be big factors in determining where you live in the area. Memphis houses for sale can also affect where you stay. FedEx   FedEx is one of the largest companies in the world for logistics. They’ve got over 200,000 employees and six million vehicles! The company is huge and continues to grow every day. Of course, more growth leads to a demand for employees that can keep up with FedEx’s expansion. Not only will you have a well-paying job with FedEx, you’ll also have the opportunity to make someone’s day better. Imagine this, you’re dropping off that Christmas

PETA returns to Rajah Sulayman Theatre with 'Ang Buhay ni Galileo'

PETA returns to Rajah Sulayman Theatre for re-staging their original translation by Alan Glinoga of a Bertolt Brecht creation. In celebration of the premiere theatre group’s 50th anniversary, Ang Buhay ni Galileo ran from November 29 to December 1 at an outdoor stage at Fort Santiago. The play talks about the struggles of spreading the truth by the polymath Galileo Galilei. This is directed by Rody Vera.

All his life, Galileo Galilei tried to disseminate his discoveries about the universe. These trials and tribulations were quelled by the Roman Catholic as they are deemed as against the teachings of God. The entire show addresses the issue of the Church’s greed over power which transcends the current state of our society.

PETA takes art seriously this time. Their previous productions focused more on the entertainment value. Ang Buhay ni Galileo proves that PETA knows what theatre should be. The cast is headed by veteran artist Joel Lamangan as Galileo who is a very credible lead. He is backed up by other theatre experts like Bodjie Pascua, Upeng Galang Fernandez, Jack Yabut and others. The production design by Brenda Fajardo was inspired by the Aesthetic of Poverty.

The open-air venue added to the aesthetics of the play. But do not complain about the long walk from the Intramuros entrance to the stage, the sounds of traffic, helicopter, the birds and bats (maybe) hovering over, mosquitos, fireworks at Rizal Park and even rain. Do not complain. Experiencing art is supposed to be a struggle. (Char.)

We are absolutely hoping for another re-staging of Ang Buhay ni Galileo and more plays from PETA at the Rajah Sulayman Theatre.
