Julie Beer’s Lacrosse Profile | ConnectLAX
She is looking forward to her first year coaching the inaugural women’s lacrosse team, which is slated to begin competition in the Spring of 2020.
No stranger to beginning fledgling programs, Beer moves to Clark after helping start three successful Division III women’s lacrosse teams. Most applicably, Beer served an eight-year stint as the inaugural head women’s lacrosse coach at NCAA Division III member, Centre College in Danville, Kentucky from 2009-2017. In eight years of building a program, she compiled an overall record of 86-39, seven seasons with over 10 wins, 3 SAA Championships (2012, 2014, and 2016), and was a 2x Coach of the Year award winner.
During her tenure at Centre, Beer placed a total of 53 lacrosse athletes on the Southern Athletic Association (SAA) All-Conference Teams, 15 athletes on the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Association (IWLCA) All-Region Teams, and had a total of 9 athletes named SAA Player of the Year. As of 2018, her women’s lacrosse team has been the sole recipient of the highest team GPA award. She also served seven years as a member of the IWLCA West All-American committee.
In addition to her lacrosse responsibilities, Coach Beer also served as the assistant field hockey coach at Centre from 2009 until 2015. She helped the Colonels to four championship game appearances and two third places finishes in the SAA. In 2014, she helped the Colonels win the Regular Season Conference Championship after going undefeated in conference play, and advance to the NCAA “Sweet 16”. In 2015, she helped the Colonels win the SAA Championship, and returned to the NCAA “Sweet 16”.
Before her tenure at Centre, Beer was the assistant coach for the inaugural Framingham State women’s lacrosse team. The year prior to starting at Clark, Beer spent a year at Anna Maria in a dual capacity role: restarting their women’s lacrosse team and serving as the Assistant Athletic Director. While at Anna Maria she was instrumental at guiding the athletic department through a rebrand, and the launch of their online store.
A Spencer, Massachusetts native, Beer transferred from Mercyhurst College in Erie, Pennsylvania to Clark where she graduated with a B.A. in English Literature. An outstanding WCLA player, she was a three-year starter in the midfield and a two-year team captain.
Children’s Book Review: Kids vs Plastic by Julie Beer
KIDS VS PLASTIC
Ditch the Straw and Find the Pollution Solution to Bottles, Bags, and Other Single-Use Plastics
By: Julie Beer
Published: December 1, 2020
Publisher: National Geographic Kids
Every year, humans are creating 448 million tons of plastic adding to the nearly 9 billion tons already accumulated in the last 70 years. National Geographic hopes that through this book, they can inspire kids to create change in their homes, their schools, and their communities. The book has seven chapters dedicated to understanding plastic and why it is so bad for our environment, how to reduce your own plastic consumption and avoid using it, how to reuse the plastic you have, and then finally how to avoid sending plastic to the landfills. The book features “Take Action” steps for kids to do right now in this fight against plastic.
I think many of us, myself included, assume that if I put plastic in the recycling bin, that it will be recycled and I’ve done my part. That may not necessarily be the case. Recycling is just one way to get a handle on the overuse of plastic, but there are many other ways including stopping the use of one-time-use plastic.
Throughout the book, everyday kids and teens are featured with their stories of how they have started programs or impacted their community through recycling or stopping the use of plastic. Their stories will inspire other kids to get programs going in their own schools and neighborhoods.
The tips for reducing your use of plastic were also good reminders for me. I have really made an effort in our own home to be more aware of the use of plastic. I make sure all plastic is clean before it is placed in recycling. I also use fewer plastic bags for lunches and use containers that I can bring home and wash. One thing that I have noticed in the last year, due to COVID, is the increase in the amount of plastic that is being used in restaurants. Individually packaged condiments and to-go containers seem to be the norm and I cringe every time I see it. Even at our sons’ colleges, the cafeterias are serving meals in plastic containers rather than plates. I just don’t understand it and it makes me think that this year, more than any other, we will contribute even more plastic into landfills than before. Even stores won’t let you use your reusable bags which is extremely frustrating for me.
One of the tips I’m going to try to do is using beeswax wrap instead of plastic cling wrap on our dishes. I don’t have to use it often, but even just small changes can make a difference. That is the whole point of this book. No single person can solve the problem of too much plastic, but if each household, business, and school looked at ways to change the way plastic is used, the efforts all accumulated together could make such a difference. What is one thing that your family could do today to add less plastic to the landfill in your area?
I loved the chapter, “Looking Ahead”, which featured ways that change is already happening, for example, selling bamboo toothbrushes, which are compostable. I bet if your family took an inventory, you would see many instances of reducing plastic use as well as others that you could improve on. Refill water bottles rather than always grabbing one from the fridge. Give experience gifts rather than toys or other items. Use crayons and colored pencils instead of markers. Not every scenario is going to work for your family, but finding one thing that you could do differently will make a difference and may just start a trend in your household or neighborhood.

90,000 Beer with marijuana in the USA. Cannabis beer in the USA
At the largest craft beer festival in the United States, the Great American Beer Festival, the brewery Dad and Dude’s Breweria made a splash, presenting several varieties of cannabis beers . Journalist Julie Godard on MassRoots talked about how the brewery was the first in the United States to receive legal approval to use marijuana in beer. Pivo.by publishes a translation of the material.
It was only a matter of time before craft brewers made cannabis-infused beers.The owner of the restaurant-brewery Dad and Dude’s Breweria in Aurora, Colorado, Mason Humbry has long thought about making such a beer. Back in 2010, the brewery began producing several varieties with hemp – Dank IPA , Sativa IPA and Indica Double IPA . They do not contain tetrahydrocannabinol, but only cannabidiol, a cannabis infusion that is used in medicine.
Who Can Brew and Sell Cannabis Beers?
In mid-2016, Dad and Dude’s Brewery received approval from the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to produce cannabis beer.It was previously legal for Dad and Dude’s and other local Colorado breweries such as Oskar Blues , but they could only distribute cannabis beer within the state. Now, brewers will be able to do this all over the country. Dad and Dude’s new series, General Washington’s Secret Stash , has been approved for sale not only in recreational marijuana states such as Oregon, Washington, and Alaska, but also in prohibited states (such as California).However, commercial breweries still cannot produce cannabis beer, even in Colorado, or they could lose their Tobacco and Alcohol Tax Bureau license.
Why do Dad and Dude’s make cannabidiol beer?
Co-owner of Dad and Dude’s Mason Hembry created these varieties as a way to combine a love of beer and the belief that marijuana can be more than just a source of drug intoxication. Non-psychoactive compounds are also important and have many benefits, he said. He noted that the producers of such beer support the removal of cannabis from the federal drug list. There are over 300 breweries in Colorado, according to the Westword website, and now that Dad and Dude’s beer has been approved, many of them are likely to try to brew similar beers.
What other breweries have produced marijuana beers?
In February 2015, Hop Barley and the Alers of Boulder, Colorado, became the first home brewer to offer a marijuana beer category in a Reggale and Dredhop beer judge certification competition.There are several other breweries producing such beer – first of all, the Californian Lagunitas , which brewed the Kronik variety (later the name had to be changed to Censored ). Dark Horse Brewing from Michigan introduced Smells Like Weed IPA , but also had to change the name to Smells Like a Safety Meeting. Cannabis is also linked to, although not included, such varieties as Oskar Blues’ , Pinner Throwback Session IPA and Blue Dream IPA , whose names are a reference to popular cannabis strains of the same name.
Moscow Brewing Company • Media: OUR IMPORT. LIMBURGSE WITTE
It is difficult to argue with the obvious truth: a good Belgian witbier is pleasant at any time of the year. But it also cannot be denied that this beer is especially relevant in summer, thanks to its refreshing taste with a delicious citrus hue. Our Import has just such a variety today – Limburgse Witte from the Belgian family brewery Brouwerij Cornelissen!
About the brewery
It all started when the mayor of Gerdingen Jan Cornelissen decided to brew beer.He started his craft together with a farmer from the neighboring village of Opitter in 1859. It is interesting that now, when the company belongs to the sixth generation of the family, the initials of the owner remain unchanged – JC. Today the brewery is headed by Jef Cornelissen. By the way, Jeff’s children – Jacob and Julie – wear the same initials.
The brewery adheres to the authentic foundations of Belgian brewing and does not pursue experiments, preferring to produce flawlessly balanced varieties in traditional styles.It can be said to be a classic example of a Belgian family brewery. At the same time, since 2015, the company has been actively involved in the international market – Brouwerij Cornelissen beer is supplied to Finland, Brazil, to a number of countries in the Asian region, and, of course, to Russia. It should be noted that our country ranks 2nd in the world in terms of export volume.
The brewery began brewing witbier in the mid 80s – we can say that then the style was on the wave of the hype in the province of Limburg and Brouwerij Cornelissen successfully seized the moment.Soon, it was the Vit from the Cornelissen family brewery that became the province’s official beer of sorts. In honor of its beer, the company held the Miss LW beauty contest for several years in a row, which attracted the attention of the audience – in total, several thousand people attended.
The beer maturation process is very long, the use of any chemical flavors and preservatives is excluded – only wheat and natural herbs. The water for the beer is taken from its own well, and its own yeast strain is used for fermentation.Thanks to this proven technology, the beer has a great refreshing taste with a noticeable citrus accent and a rounded dry finish.
In order to fully reveal the unique taste of Limburgse Witte, it is recommended to pour it without tilting the bottle very strongly and cut off the foam with a knife, allowing it to overflow a little. It is best to serve beer at a temperature of 2-4 C. Also, take care of the correct temperature of the glass – rinse it with cold water in advance.
90,000 Top US breweries accused of sexism and discrimination
You can often hear that craft brewing is 99% free of scoundrels, but a new discrimination scandal is unfolding in the US brewing industry, and many of the largest and most famous breweries are involved . ..
On May 11, Brienne Allen, production manager at Notch Brewing, began posting to her Instagram account @ratmagnet testimonials from people in the brewing industry, mostly women, about discrimination, harassment and harassment in the workplace. In total, about a thousand messages were published.
The consequences of this have already begun to manifest. Gene Broilier, the founder of Tired Hands brewery, often cited in reports for its inappropriate treatment of staff, gave up running the brewery at the behest of the brewery.The staff retained their positions and will continue to work – they promise to find a new leader and build a new culture in the company. Broye himself wrote in his already deleted post that, although it is sad and humiliating to read such messages from former employees, he doubts their reliability. “If any of these claims are true, then Julie [co-founder of Julie Foster’s brewery] and I are personally responsible. This is our company. ”
Connecticut Valley Brewing fired sales director Jeff Nelson, who, according to several reports, sent women obscene photos. “We absolutely cannot stand this behavior and will do everything possible, as a team and as a company, to prevent this from happening again,” wrote co-owners of the brewery Lori and Steve Palauskas. They stressed that they had never heard of such accusations against their employee before. Nelson himself apologized on Facebook to all the women he offended during his work in brewing, and admitted that he suffers from alcoholism and will be treated.
Hill Farmstead Brewery, whose founder Sean Hill was also accused of indecent behavior, said it will continue to fight for safety and equality in the workplace and change in the industry.Hill himself wrote in a statement to VinePair that he never knowingly or openly behaved disparagingly or demeaningly. “I was never going to play a prominent role in the community, and it was both an honor and a test for me,” wrote Hill, who previously admitted to his mental problems with the brewery’s sudden worldwide prominence.
Jacob McKean, CEO of Modern Times Brewery, retired. One of the brewery employees was accused of indecent behavior, and McKean himself was accused of creating an unfriendly environment for employees of color.
Also among the breweries featured in the reports are Burial, Oskar Blues, Mikkeller San Diego, Fonta Flora, Firestone Walker, Founders, Birrificio Italiano, BrewDog and many others, not only American breweries.
The Brewers Association has a member code of conduct and a complaint mechanism, which Allen recalled on her Instagram. The association confirmed that it has already received one formal complaint and plans to conduct additional work with industry leaders to find a solution to the problem.
Earlier this year, there was evidence of discrimination and harassment at Boulevard Brewing, and BrewDog USA was accused of discriminating against LGBT employees.
Is it possible to save beer from the effects of global warming? – Beer business
Many crops used in the production of beer will die in the conditions of climatic disasters caused by global warming. About whether it is possible to save beer from these consequences, writes Zoe Stryker in the online edition of The Outline.Pivo.by publishes a translation of the material.
Beer used to save people, but soon people will have to save beer. With changing temperature and weather conditions, some of the most important crops for beer production, such as hops and malting barley, may be threatened with extinction. The proportion of the population affected by droughts, which affects many agricultural crops, has nearly doubled over the past 40 years. Scientists predict that in the coming years, barley production will decline by 3-17% worldwide.In the face of intensive environmental degradation, scientists, farmers and suppliers are doing everything possible to preserve the brewing raw materials. With unpredictable climate change in mind, scientific experts are rushing to develop and implement effective technological solutions that can help save the beloved drink.
The share of the beer industry in the GDP of the United States of America is 1. 9%, or $ 350 billion. The volume of beer consumption worldwide, from the Czech Republic to Namibia, is 100 liters per capita.However, this is not the only food that is threatened by climate change: chocolate, avocado, lobster and rice are also at risk as the temperature of the world’s oceans rises, its volumes decrease, weather conditions become more extreme, and wet regions become even more. more humid, and the area of arid regions is increasing. Coffee and wine are also under threat of extinction: as the air temperature rises, coffee plantations are more actively affected by various diseases, while hotter weather conditions reduce the quality and volume of grapes and coffee beans grown.Some experts also feel some concern about the legendary Bloody Mary cocktail: tomatoes, horseradish, lemons, hot sauce, vodka and black pepper can become a victim of irreversible environmental changes, as a result of which this well-known drink can permanently lose its signature taste.
The Yakima Valley, Washington state, produces 75% of all American hops. Some of it is exported, while others are widely used to make American beer.Nevertheless, due to unstable weather conditions, production volumes are becoming more and more unpredictable: the level of productivity in some seasons sometimes significantly exceeds that of others. Hops need a lot of water to ripen, but in the future, in conditions of global warming, its shortage may become an irreversible problem. Hydrologist Julie Vano, who studies the natural region, writes that “climate change can lead to a gradual decrease in snow cover in winter and early snow melt, and with it, to a decrease in the amount of water needed to feed the soil.”According to experts, the Yakima Valley water supply system will soon be unable to meet the region’s water needs, including hop farmers. According to Wano’s forecasts, in 2080, water shortages in these areas will be felt much more often – every two to three years, which will greatly complicate and even jeopardize traditional methods of growing hops. Local farmers witnessed the changing climatic conditions and their consequences back in 2015, when an uncharacteristically warm winter caused water shortages in the valley. Similar weather events have affected hop crops in other world regions, for example, in Germany, which is one of the leading suppliers of hops to Europe, Asia and Africa. Since the United States is the largest hop producer in the world, the effects of climate change on beer are very worrisome.
In recent years, soilless technologies for hop cultivation have been developed. Some researchers, such as Bill Bauerle of Colorado State University, have begun experimenting with growing hops using hydroponics, which controls environmental conditions, protecting crops from unpredictable climatic changes.By adjusting the growing conditions, Bauerl’s team was able to increase crop yields. They manage to harvest up to five hop harvests a year (as opposed to one in traditional agriculture), which today is feasible in any geographic region where hydroponic greenhouses can be built. The new technology will provide brewers with the right varieties of freshly grown hops in times when conventionally produced hops are not on the market.
A very uncertain future awaits not only hops, but also malting barley, given the strict requirements for its cultivation.The ideal conditions for growing barley are warm days and cool nights, as well as limited rainfall and low levels of humidity. However, as global warming trends evolve, there is a greater risk that this crop will sprout ahead of schedule or contain protein in quantities that are unacceptable for use as malt. Unstable weather conditions are the main enemy of barley.
In some provincial barley towns in Montana, cars can be seen with a striking bumper sticker that reads “No barley, no beer.”Barley yields in this region have been suffering since 2014, when, due to variable weather, crops were grown too early to be used for malt production. Since then, the volume of barley production in the United States has been marked by sharp fluctuations, and 2017 was, according to official figures, the least productive due to a widespread drought. Many European states have faced similar problems. Analyst Scott Casey told the Financial Times: “In some regions, crops are on the verge of extinction.”
Eric Somerfield, a Powers, Montana farmer who grows malting barley, in an email to The Outline, said that for the first time this year, malting companies have offered him and his fellow farmers a reward for providing details on how they apply sustainable development principles in practice. This way of material incentives for suppliers is driven by the growing consumer demand for sustainable products.If hydroponics can be a lifesaver for hops, it is unlikely to be used in barley cultivation. According to Heiner Leith of the University of California Davis Department of Applied Botany, the idea of growing malting barley in an artificial environment is too far from reality, since it would require many kilometers of greenhouses to implement it.
Dixon Despommier, a microbiologist at Columbia University and a pioneer of the concept of vertical farming, which involves multi-tiered planting in a controlled environment, disagrees with Leith. At the moment, he and his team are trying to determine how much space is needed to grow wheat (which can be used not only as a standalone ingredient in beer production, but also as an alternative to malting barley) on a vertical farm. As soon as they receive preliminary data, Despommier said, similar calculations will be carried out for malting barley, which is also threatened with extinction in the context of global warming and has a high market value.Some well-known entrepreneurs, including Jeff Bezos, Larry Ellison and Kimbal Musk (brother of the famous Elon Musk), have already invested large sums in this young multi-billion dollar industry.
Infrastructure changes are not the only potential solution to save beer. Berkeley Brewing Science, an ambitious startup led by two biologists at the University of California, Berkeley, is aiming to produce a highly hopped, hop-free beer using the new CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing technology for yeast cultures.The incorporation of mint and basil genes into yeast DNA will give it a hop flavor, eliminating the need to use the hops itself in beer production. A blind tasting session with employees of the Lagunitas Brewing Company showed that beer made with synthetic hops had a richer hop content than beer brewed with natural hops.
Despommier’s concept of vertical agriculture is based on the rather optimistic idea that “there is nothing that cannot be grown in an artificial environment.”This point of view, he repeatedly voiced, talking about the future of beer. Thus, due to climate change, innovative food production technologies will continue to actively develop, and beer in these conditions is an ideal object for research.
90,000 Julie Andrews – biography, personal life, photos, news, Bridgertons, Mary Poppins, Ajoa Andoch 2021
The unsurpassed Julie Andrews began her creative career in the 50s as a music hall star.Her wondrous voice captivated the theater audience, first in her native London, and then on New York Broadway. Success awaited the actress and on the screen: the role in the film “Mary Poppins” brings the “Oscar” in 1964. However, not everything went smoothly: Andrews knows firsthand what the finest hour is, and what it is like to survive the years of oblivion.
Childhood and adolescence
Julia Elizabeth Wells was born on October 1, 1935 in the old British city of Walton-on-Thames. Mother Barbara is a pianist, and biological father Edward Wells worked as a wood and metal craftsman.At the age of 15, Julie learned that her real father was a family friend with whom her mother had an affair. The girl grew up with her stepfather, singer Ted Andrews, whom Barbara married in 1943.
In her autobiography, the artist wrote that her stepfather was a bad person. When Ted was very drunk, he tried to seduce the young stepdaughter. This forced Julie to put a padlock on the door of the room. The Andrews lived very poorly and practically vegetated in the London slums, but gradually the touring activity began to bring in a good income.And this is partly due to Julie Elizabeth.
Films and Musicals
Julie Elizabeth’s talent was immediately noticed. In 1954, American producers invited a celebrity to New York to star in the Broadway production of Buddy. The image of Polly Brown brought fame and success to Andrews. But this was only a prelude to the real recognition that fell upon the artist after the role of Eliza Doolittle in the production of “My Fair Lady” (1956). Oscar-winning actor Rex Harrison became Andrews’ partner. This tandem shone on the Broadway stage for about 2 years, gaining incredible love from the audience.The star performance brought the actress the prestigious Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical, the title of Queen of Broadway, and a cover photo of leading magazines.
Julie was expecting another leading role in the Camelot project in 1960, for which the British woman was again nominated for Tony, but she could not repeat the previous success. Andrews increasingly thought about a new page in her biography and career in cinema.
The actress dreamed of embodying the image of Eliza Doolittle in a screen production that came out in 1964.But the producers gave up the role of Audrey Hepburn, believing that the name of a bright brunette would provide an influx of audiences to cinemas. Julie received another interesting offer: Walt Disney Studios invited Andrews to play in the musical Mary Poppins (1964).

Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins
In a 2019 interview, Julie Andrews recalled her friendship with the founder of the company:
“I am not I identify the great Walter Disney with the studio today.Walter was a wonderful person, very creative, sensitive. He behaved differently from his Hollywood colleagues. ”
The artist also told about how she agreed to shoot:
“He offered me the role of Mary Poppins . .. I was pregnant and was going to return to London. I didn’t want to give birth in New York. But Disney said, “Ok, I’ll wait, give birth and come back.” He knew in his heart that I was suitable for the role, so he had no doubts. ”57486/975334755880241/?type=3″>
Where did the time go? The beloved Oscar-winning “The Sound of Music,” starring Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer…

Julie Andrews in “The Sound of Music”
Julie enthusiastically plunged into work and soon proved that she was able to bring the project to the top of the box office. The musical became one of the most commercially successful in the history of the studio, and the enchanting performance brought the singer a worthy award – Oscar for Best Actress.
The following year, Andrews again became one of the Oscar nominees for her role in The Sound of Music (1965). This time the award bypassed the actress, but the film critics recognized the picture as the film of the year, and largely thanks to the acting skills of the British artist. Miss Andrews played a simple girl Mary, who got a job in the house of the widowed captain von Trapp (Christopher Plummer), becoming the governess for his 7 children. At first, the pupils do not like the new nanny, but Maria gradually wins the hearts of the capricious heirs, introducing them to singing. And soon the heart of the captain himself melts.
The images of respectable nannies and governesses, one after another appearing in her filmography, strengthened the star in this role.Moving away from roles of the same type, in 1966 Julie starred in Alfred Hitchcock’s gloomy spy thriller “The Curtain Torn”, becoming the partner of the popular Paul Newman. A new project of the same year was the epic drama Hawaii about the origins of missionary work in the Hawaiian Islands in the early 19th century.

Then the British star shone in a series of leading roles, many of which were awarded prestigious film awards.In the melodrama The Man Who Loved Women in 1983, her heroine, psychoanalyst Marianne, treated the main character (Burt Reynolds) from sex addiction. For his work in Andrei Konchalovsky’s film “Duet for a Soloist”, where Julie played the seriously ill violinist Stephanie Anderson, Andrews was again nominated for the Golden Globe competition as the best dramatic actress.
The beginning of the 90s was marked by the participation of a celebrity in the romantic comedy “Beautiful Love” with the favorite of the beautiful half of humanity, Marcello Mastroianni. In 1995, Julie returned to the atmosphere of youth – on Broadway. After a 35-year hiatus, Andrews performed with a stage version of the musical “Victor / Victoria”, after which she went on a world tour.

In 1997, an irreparable thing happened in Julie’s life – as a result of an unsuccessful operation on the ligaments (they had benign nodules), she lost her beautiful voice.At first, the doctors assured the singer that he would recover within a few weeks. But even after 2 years, the artist could not get rid of the hoarseness that appeared. Andrews filed a lawsuit against the doctors, and in 2000 the case was settled for a certain amount of compensation (the amount of compensation was not named).
In 2000, Eric Stiles’ comedy Blue Blood was released, starring Julie Andrews. The heroine of the star is Countess Felicity Marshwood. Edward Etterton played the role of her on-screen son.
In 2001, the British actress appeared in The Princess Diaries starring Anne Hathaway as Queen Clarissa. This was Julie’s second time in a Disney project after the success of Mary Poppins. Then Andrews played the role of a nanny in the Disney film adaptations about the adventures of Eloise (“Eloise in the square” and “Eloise for Christmas”).

Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer
Since 2004, a new professional stage began in the life of a celebrity – the scoring of animation works, which continues today. Andrews voiced Queen Lillian in all parts of Shrek, Marlene Gru in Despicable Me and characters from other cartoons.
In 2016, Andrews, together with his own daughter Emma Hamilton and producer Judy Rothman, created the series for preschoolers, Julia’s Green Room. The TV show premiered a year later on Netflix.
In 2018, Julie took part in the dubbing of James Wan’s superhero film Aquaman, which brought together a star cast – Jason Momoa, Nicole Kidman, Amber Heard, Dolph Lundgren.The voice of the actress speaks Karaten – a mythical underwater creature that helps the protagonist to stop the war between the terrestrial and underwater worlds.
Julie Andrews’ happy personal life did not develop immediately. His first marriage to theater designer Tony Walton was short. The couple met in their youth at home in England in the late 40s and got married in 1959. In 1962, their daughter Emma Keith Walton (Hamilton) was born in London.
In 1969, Julie married screenwriter and director Blake Edwards. This union turned out to be happy. The couple lived in perfect harmony for 40 years, raised children from their first marriages (Emma, Jennifer and Jeffrey), and also adopted girls Amy and Joanna in Vietnam.57486/792881644125554/?type=3″>

When celebrities decided to introduce their offspring, Edwards invited Andrews and her 6-year-old daughter to his home.To endear Jeffrey and Jennifer to their new mom, he suggested that Julie change into Mary Poppins. The director’s heirs were delighted at the sight of the fairy-tale character and happily accepted the guest into the family.
In 2010, the actress was widowed. In an interview with the Russian edition of Izvestia, she recalled the late Blake this way: “He was my main prize, taken out of Hollywood. Everything else was indifferent to me. ” The artist decided to “live” in the United States next to her husband’s grave.

In some areas of the American states of Virginia and Wisconsin supporters traditionally vote for Wisconsin Donald Trump is there too. These people complain that neighbors often look askance at them because of their conservative views – and now they have decided to get together and hold solidarity rallies.We tell you what such actions look like and why they are important for understanding what is happening in the United States.
It’s Sunday – and programmer Scott Pio, 36, is driving his Wrangler jeep, hung with Donald Trump’s campaign flags, through a residential area in northern Virginia. He waves his hand to two women who are talking about something in the front yard. In response, he meets only stern, disapproving looks.
Pio is not surprised at this reaction.

Trump National Golf Club is nearby.On weekends, the president often comes here to play, and is constantly greeted at the entrance by local activists protesting against Republican policies. In this part of Virginia, people usually vote for the Democratic Party, and Trump supporters like Pio are treated rather coldly here.
Among the demonstrators in front of the Trump Golf Club, 53-year-old Julie Briskman, who became famous a few years ago, showing the middle finger at the presidential motorcade, can often be seen. A photograph of the incident was published in many newspapers, and in 2019 Briskman was elected to the district local council.
Opponents of Trump
Scott Pio learned about Briskman’s story about a year ago when he moved to the area. Since then, he has regularly led a convoy of jeeps and motorcycles adorned with American flags that appears near Trump Golf Club. Its members are trying to counterbalance the actions of Briskman and her fellow Democrats.
“I’m tired of hearing attacks on our president,” Pio explains his decision to organize the rally.“And I’m sick of not being respected.” his immigration policies, especially his decision to build a barrier along the border with Mexico. “He is a builder, not a politician.” – Trump’s club and where his opponents and supporters can meet face to face not only with each other, but also with the president himself.Columns of flag-decked cars roam the highways and dusty country roads of democratic enclaves such as Eau Claire, Wisconsin or McAllen, Texas. And there, Trump supporters are no less active.
Large jeeps emblazoned with the flags of the 2020 Trump presidential campaign will remind many of the horrific events of August 29 in Portland, Oregon. Then there were clashes between members of a convoy of supporters of Trump and liberal-minded demonstrators; one of the supporters of the president, Aaron Danielson, was shot dead.
However, while the rallies in Sterling and other cities are peaceful.

Participants in the rally for Trump are united by two things: sympathy for the current president and the feeling that all neighbors do not share their point of view.
Those who call themselves Trump’s electoral base have become the main force behind these demonstrations. Studies show that the core of support for the president is relatively high-income white men and women, with fewer university graduates compared to those who vote for the Democratic Party.
Many of these conservative voters believe that the Democratic elite “looks at them with disdain because they are more religious and interested in firearms,” said Stephen Norman, a history professor at the University of Oklahoma at Norman. “They are very offended that their point of view is being ignored,” he adds. “And then Trump appeared, who managed to convince them that he was opposing the elites,” the scientist explains.
Donald Trump often complains that he is treated badly and unfairly in Washington – and praises his supporters, calling them “forgotten people.”
However, in recent months Trump’s popularity among voters has fallen, and his supporters are beginning to worry about the fate of the president – and their own.
Roger Cole says his business has blossomed under President Trump
“These guys feel that the economic and political influence they were born with is slowly withering away,” said Jefferson Cowie of Vanderbilt University in Tennessee. – That’s why they scream at the top of their lungs. “
Some, however, also use bells for cows. Roger Cole, 64, knocked on him during a demonstration this Sunday, standing beside his shiny 1980 truck, which was adorned with the Trump flag. The truck broke down (“power steering problems,” Cole explains), so instead of participating in the rally, he had to use a bell to show support.
The rally in northern Virginia, as in many other parts of the United States, was organized spontaneously – and without any support from the Trump campaign.”It arose 100% naturally,” says the organizer of the action, Scott Pio.
He was echoed by Claire Krenselok, 32, a mother of four, of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, who organized a 500-car procession. “This is a real popular movement,” she says.
Automotive demonstrations are growing. Scott Pio says there were about 30 people in Virginia in early summer, and now we’re talking about 168 “patriots,” as he calls them. Not everyone leaves every time, but there are more and more participants.
These rallies are rallying Trump supporters who prefer to call themselves “ordinary people.” Among them – 73-year-old accountant Lee Jackson Shocky, who arrived at the Sunday rally in his pickup. Shocky grew up in Virginia and his father owned a pig farm. “I often watch Trump’s speeches on TV and think: damn it, I would say the same thing!” – he admits.
Shockie loves to hunt and has had firearms in his house all his life. Therefore, he likes that President Trump is advocating the Second Amendment to the US Constitution, which guarantees the right to own weapons.Shocky also says Trump’s policies are helping the American economy because he “simplified many of the rules that stifled business.”

In Sterling, some cars have posters that say “Trump’s National Rapid Response Group.” The group follows the road that runs over the hill by the Potomac River and passes the gates of the presidential golf club.
One of the drivers is retired fire chief Mike Taylor, 62, who brought his 1979 Kenworth truck to the rally.Taylor believes that Donald Trump is championing the interests of the country and American workers. “He made it so that the United States is no longer in secondary or third roles compared to other countries, especially China,” says a presidential supporter.
Just a few meters away, on the sidewalk, an alternative demonstration of liberal activists is taking place. Their T-shirts bear the names of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, both Democratic candidates for the White House, and carry posters that describe Trump as the “killer of democracy.”
Although Julie Briskman was elected to the local council, she still regularly comes to the demonstrations in front of Trump’s golf club: her poster says, “Plant him.” In the past, she said, her constituency voted for the Republican Party, but now the majority of voters support the Democrats.
This is how she explains that Trump supporters run rallies and state their point of view: “They are told that their views are out of date – and it certainly hurts. They react like white people who are uncomfortable talking about racism. “

Demonstrations in support of Trump were also held in Wisconsin
Another representative of the Democratic camp – 49-year-old Megan Donahue, who also has a T-shirt with the symbols of the Biden and Harris campaign – is watching Trump rally off the sidewalk. “Look at all these flag trucks,” she says. “It looks like some kind of cult.”
Tension between political opponents is growing. Some Trump supporters are yelling at Democrats and yelling insults (“losers!”).According to Pio, sometimes pro-democracy activists throw plastic water bottles at drivers. “Full bottles!” He complains.
Pio drives past the presidential golf club – the steering wheel of his jeep is splattered with mud, a large American flag flies in the car, which takes a hit in case something arrives in the car. “This flag protects me,” he says.
