In-flight Noise Pollution

May 19th, 2016

Our U.S. lawmakers are working on a bill in the House of Representatives to permanently ban making in-flight voice calls. The Senate version of that bill isnt as stringent and doesnt include the permanent ban. The Inflight Passenger Communications Coalition is of course supporting the Senates version of the bill.

In-Flight Noise Pollution

Overseas there are 20 airlines allowing in-flight phone usage and it seems to be working just fine. There doesnt seem to be an anger issue with air-rage, and flight attendants overseas dont seem to be complaining. Are we Americans just too immature to handle the lack of consideration of some phone users? Is that why our government hasnt given us permission yet? Are they afraid of the Ugly Americans loss of temper? Do we need cell phone etiquette lessons first?

Here in the U.S. many airlines have in-flight Internet access via smartphones or laptops, but federal regulations still ban in-flight voice calls using cell phones or VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). I had always thought the ban was due to possible interference with the airplanes communication system, but apparently not if the European planes allow the calls. (Or perhaps they have different kinds of planes over there LOL)

Do we really need to use our phones during a flight? Isnt it kind of nice not to have to listen to the passenger next to you jabber away on a phone call? We have all had experience with an inconsiderate cell phone user interrupting our peace. Do we want to invite that in a place where we cant simply walk away and leave them behind? At least on the train we can get up and go to the dining car, but in an airplane?

Having in-flight Internet access should satisfy most peoples need for communication with the outside world. Do we really need the noise pollution of phones as well?

Free Play Reading Series at A Noise Within – June through August

May 21st, 2013

Free Play Reading Series at A Noise Within – June through August
Event on 2013-06-05 19:00:00
A Noise Within (ANW), the acclaimed classical repertory theatre company, continues this season’s “Words Within” Wednesday night play reading series with four free, one-night-only readings this summer at its Pasadena theatre: THE HEIRESS by RUTH AND AUGUSTUS GOETZ, based on the 1880 Henry James novel Washington Square, on June 5, 2013, 7 pm; THE GHOST SONATA by AUGUST STRINDBERG, considered one of the world’s greatest modern playwrights, on June 19, 7pm; GALILEO, a timeless classic by BERTOLD BRECHT on July 24, 7 pm; and LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT by EUGENE O’NEILL on August 14, 7 pm. The readings feature A Noise Within resident artists as well as artists from the theatre company’s current repertory productions.

The Heiress, directed by Robertson Dean, is the timeless story of New York society, wealth and a daughter’s heartfelt struggle for her father’s love as she navigates her own first love. “The play gives us a heartbreaking glimpse of a young, thwarted soul, even as her beautiful nature blossoms before us,” says Dean. The cast features Kelly Ehlert (Catherine Sloper), Apollo Dukakis (Dr. Austin Sloper), Jason Dechert (Morris Townsend), Jill Hill (Aunt Lavinia Penniman), Ann Marie Lee (Mrs. Montgomery), Anna C. Miller (Mrs. Almond), Alison Elliott (Marion), Kevin Angulo (Arthur Townsend) and Abigail Marks (Maria).

The Ghost Sonata, an expressionist masterpiece directed by Stephen Rockwell, is considered a key work in the development of modernist drama. Critics have hailed this otherworldly play about a haunted house filled with dreamy illusions and odd inhabitants as “breathtaking,” “incisive,” a “provocative chamber-mystery” and “a strange masterpiece.” Strindberg, one of the most important playwrights of the 20th century, influenced such writers as Franz Kafka, Eugene Ionesco, Tennessee Williams, Eugene O’Neill and Samuel Beckett. The cast includes William Dennis Hunt (The Old Man), Raphael Goldstein (The Student), Jaimi Paige (The Young Lady), as well as ANW resident artists Jill Hill, Mitchell Edmonds, Freddy Douglas, Alison Elliott and Joel Swetow with Claire Mannle, Jessie Losch, Abby Marks, Garry Ballard, Dorrie Braun and Jennifer Losi.

Galileo, a tour de force directed by Alan Blumenfeld, is among Bertold Brecht’s most notable works. It dramatizes the struggle during the Inquisition of the brilliant physicist Galileo to choose his life or his life’s work, examining the moral and ethical responsibilities of scientists when confronted by authority. Newsweek proclaimed the play, “Thoughtful and profoundly sensitive."

Long Day’s Journey Into Night, a semi-autobiographical work for which O’Neill won his third Pulitzer Prize posthumously in 1957, has been called “America’s greatest play.” Directed by William Dennis Hunt, the emotionally probing play is the story of one fateful day in the life of the dysfunctional Tyrone family and their downward spiral into addiction, disease and their own haunted pasts filled with an endless cycle of blame, regret and conflict. The New York Times describes O’Neill as "an American Shakespeare, the father of American drama, who all by himself, in the early years of the 20th century, turned it into a serious art form.” The cast features Mitchell Edmonds (James Tyrone) and Deborah Strang (Mary Tyrone).

A Noise Within, led by Producing Artistic Directors Geoff Elliott and Julia Rodriguez-Elliott, is the only year-round classical repertory company in Southern California and one of only a handful in the entire country dedicated solely to producing classical dramatic literature in the repertory tradition of rotating productions with a resident company of professional artists. It has been lauded by critics as a “premiere classical theatre company,” and an "outstanding ensemble" whose "vibrantly theatrical" "brilliant productions" are "freshly imagined," "exceptional," "invigorating," "riveting," "brilliantly atmospheric," “inspired,” and “masterfully crafted.” Founded 21 years ago, ANW quickly established itself as one of the region’s key theatre companies, attracting fiercely loyal audiences and consistently high praise from the media for its productions and as a key force in arts education. The company has presented more than 140 plays from the classics of world literature, each season producing works from authors ranging from Shakespeare and Molière to Ibsen, O’Neill and Shaw to Miller and Williams.

A NOISE WITHIN is located in its permanent new home, a 33,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art venue on the corner of Foothill Boulevard and Sierra Madre Villa Avenue at 3352 East Foothill Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91107. The readings are free, but reservations are appreciated by calling (626) 356-3121 or visiting
