Hub jazzman lights up his native Panama with fest

Entertainment PANAMA CITY - It didn’t take Danilo Perez long to start laying the foundation long-distance for his Panama Jazz Festival when he moved several thousand miles north to Boston two decades ago. The proof of how spectacularly the pianist has succeeded could be found everywhere you turned in Panama City during the past several days. More than a few of those successes had a little help from his friends at New England Conservatory, UMass-Dartmouth and Berklee College of Music, who were on the scene teaching and playing. In this country better known for its canal than its jazz, banners on lampposts promoted the three-day event, the mayor proclaimed its importance to the city and well-wishers and autograph seekers stopped native son Perez on the street to thank him for this gem of a festival.

Film tells rest of unusual story of slain missionaries

Entertainment MIAMI - Five Christian missionaries ventured into the dense jungles of Ecuador, looking to reach the reclusive Waodani tribe known for its violent treatment of outsiders. The Americans arrived on a Friday. They were dead by Sunday. The killings in January 1956 shocked many in the United States, especially after images of the dead men were displayed in a Life magazine spread. But the story didn't end there. In a turn that was perhaps as stunning as the killings, the wives and sisters of the slain men went to Ecuador to pick up the mission. The women were accepted by the tribe, living among them and becoming like family.

Survivor Panama Exile Island Cast To Be Announced On The Early Show

Entertainment In a very under-hyped event, the cast of Survivor Panama Exile Island will be announced on the CBS Early Show on Monday, January 9, 2006. Unlike the last edition of Survivor where rumors about the participation of former NFL quarterback Gary Hogeboom turned the official Survivor cast announcement into a huge media event, there has been little mention in the press of the upcoming Survivor cast announcement. The news of the Survivor Panama cast announcement was briefly mentioned in a recent press release from CBS about The Early Show listings for the week of January 9 through 13. There is also a video on the official CBS Early Show website that says the cast of a new edition of Survivor will be announced on Monday.

Survivor 12 Will Be Set In Panama And Introduce Mysterious Exile Island

Entertainment Survivor will once again travel to Panama, as Jeff Probst officially announced during the Survivor Guatemala reunion show that Panama will be the setting for Survivor 12. Survivor 12 also promises to add several interesting new twists to the game of Survivor. An article on Reality TV Magazine once suggested that Survivor should add more mystery to the game and make it similar to ABC’s hit show Lost. Apparently, Survivor 12 will do just that. The biggest twist in Survivor 12 is going to be that a mysterious new island called Exile Island will factor into the game. Each week at least one castaway will be banished to Exile Island and separated from their tribe mates for days at a time. Jeff Probst describe Exile Island as “one of the most unforgiving environments yet.” Preview scenes show a creepy looking wooden skull structure on Exile Island.

The "Amazing Race" Hits Panama

Entertainment THE GODLEWSKI FAMILY: We'll start with the Godlewski sisters this week. I truly believe they could have come in first, but they made an incredible blunder, which sent them to last place. Fortunately, it was a non-elimination leg, and they're still in the race. Their one smart move this week? They piled most of their clothes on before getting to the Pit Stop, so they'll have things to wear, even if they won't have any money to start the next leg of the race. Christine, who was wailing like a kid in last week's episode, seems to have gotten a wallop of self confidence this week. Looking at the camera at the start of the episode, she said, "I have to convince my sisters to listen to me. I might be bossy, but my ideas are also the best." (So is a revolt in the making, and is Sharon being demoted as leader?)

Moro Negrito Surf Camp - APRIL 15-22, 2006 now available due to cancellation

Entertainment Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 9 November, 2005 : - - We recently had a group cancel for this week in April 2005. Now the week is open for booking again. We had received a number of requests for this week, but we have been telling everyone that it was full. We don’t remember who everyone was, so if you are interested it is available. Steve Small grew up in the Panama Canal Zone in the late 60ies and early 70ies (former zonie) . He told me his favorite surf month of the year was April because it is in the dry season with lots of offshore winds. The south swells are starting to arrive at Central America, so conditions are ideal.

The "Amazing Race" Hits Panama

EntertainmentKara A. Medalis; Reality Check
Published October 27 2005

The families finally leave the United States on "The Amazing Race," as they head from New Orleans to Panama. After two flights, the remaining six teams catch up to each other. The Paolo family is the first to get to the Race's only Fast Forward site, where they bravely bungee jump. Mouthy son, DJ, comes close to wimping out, but mom, Marion, convinces him to jump. The Paolos finish first at the Pit Stop at the Miraflores Locks on the Panama Canal, where, of course, dad, Tony, hugs host Phil Keoghan, and the family wins a return trip to Panama. The Paolos are really starting to impress me. Maybe if they quit the bickering, they can win this Race.
