The special Tony Award that honors educators will go this year to a drama teacher in Florida who has closed the gap between the deaf and hearing worlds. Jason Zembuch-Young's productions are performed in both voice and American Sign Language. Zembuch-Young, artistic director of the public South Plantation High School, in Plantation, Florida, is being honored for “empowering every student to make and be part of theater.” Zembuch-Young doesn’t just have a signing interpreter on the side of the stage — he incorporates deaf culture into the theater piece so his team is “actually doing theater for the deaf rather than simply making theater accessible to the deaf.”

The 49-year-old Brunette spent the past season as a New Jersey Devils associate coach under Lindy Ruff and has previous head-coaching experience. He was promoted to interim coach of the Florida Panthers during the 2021-22 season and oversaw a team that set franchise records for wins and points in claiming the Presidents’ Trophy.

Jaguar is recalling more than 6,000 I-Pace electric SUVs in the U.S. due to the risk of the high-voltage battery overheating and catching fire. The recall is the latest in a series of electric vehicle battery recalls because of possible fires. Documents posted Wednesday by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration say the recall covers SUVs from the 2019 through 2024 model years. The documents say the vehicle batteries were made by LG Energy Solution, which is under investigation by the U.S. safety agency after five automakers issued recalls due to possible defects that could cause fires or stalling. Documents in the Jaguar recall say the battery energy control module software will be updated by a dealer or online. Dealers also will replace battery modules if needed.
Three Filipino restaurants in three different parts of the U.S. are among the nominees at this year's James Beard Awards, the culinary world's equivalent of the Oscars. It's a sign that a cuisine that's historically been stifled by colonialism and generally unappreciated is coming into its own. The restaurants Archipelago in Seattle, Abacá in San Francisco and Kasama in Chicago all scored nods in the restaurant and chef categories. Kasama last year became the first Michelin-starred Filipino restaurant. These chefs are part of a younger generation giving voice to the Filipino American experience through the language of food. The awards ceremony is next week in Chicago.
Little Amal, a 12-foot puppet of a Syrian refugee, will journey across the United States this fall, visiting key places in America’s history in an attempt to raise awareness about immigration and migration. The puppet of the 10-year-old girl will visit the U.S. Capitol, Boston Common, Joshua Tree National Park and the Edmund Pettus Bridge during a trek which starts in Boston on Sept. 7 and ends Nov. 5 along the U.S.-Mexico border. Organizers are reaching out to community artists and leaders at each of the 35 stops to create more than 100 special events anchored by each place visited.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom wants the state to purchase massive amounts of renewable energy. Utility companies in California are responsible for buying their own power. But they have not been buying geothermal or offshore wind energy. That type of energy is difficult and expensive to produce. The Democratic governor wants the state to buy the power itself. The state would pay for it by putting a charge on people's power bills. It would take several years for that charge to take effect. Advocates say it would eventually bring prices down. But some utilities worry Newsom's plan could disrupt the energy market and increase costs. The proposal is pending in the legislature.
