Star Kathleen Turner focuses on peace during first Israel trip

by TOM GROSS, Jerusalem Post Service

Follow j. on   and 

Turner, a sex symbol who made an electric first impression as a femme fatale in the film noir "Body Heat," has held her own opposite superstars and, at 32, portrayed both a 43-year-old mom and a high school senior in "Peggy Sue Got Married" -- a double role that earned her an Oscar nomination.

"It's been one hell of a day," she said as her stay in Jerusalem got under way. "Planting a tree, visiting Yad Vashem, paying homage at Yitzhak Rabin's grave, touring the Old City, the Wall, the Temple Mount, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre."

Later that evening at the city's Cinematheque she wore an elegant suit, dove-gray in keeping with the peace theme of Turner's trip.

The next morning she was off to Masada and then on to Jericho, where she was due to meet leading Palestinian officials before spending the night with friends on a kibbutz in Galilee.

This is the actress' first trip to Israel.

Turner's New York-born Jewish husband of 13 years, Jay Weiss, was also on his first trip to Israel. After a spell in real estate, Weiss, 41, has returned to his first love, music. His rock 'n' roll-blues band, the Suits, has released its first CD, "Ties That Bind." A second one is due out soon.

"We were married by a Reform rabbi, Rabbi Seligman of the Central Synagogue in Manhattan, though not in a synagogue," said Turner. "I didn't convert...but since my marriage, I have very much taken on a certain amount of Jewish tradition and identity."

Ostensibly she was here as a guest of the newly created Peres Institute for Peace. But, perhaps recalling the bad press Richard Dreyfuss received when he was here earlier this year, or recalling Woody Allen's hostile op-ed piece in the New York Times, she seemed aware that her position as a celebrity visiting Israel was a sensitive one.

"It would be presumptuous of me, an American actress, to come here and advise people on what they should do. But I want to highlight the work of the institute, which feels too much of the peace process has been left in government hands and [that] ordinary people are not involved enough.

"What I can do is provide an opportunity, maybe an excuse, for Palestinians and Israelis to come together -- the idea being that when they are together, both sides become human and personal and find they have a lot more in common than they thought."

Certainly her star status attracted both Arabs and Jews -- actors, producers, directors, students -- to see her at Tel Aviv's Cameri Theater and other locations.

This is not the first time Turner has played a de facto role in the Mideast peace process. At Yitzhak Rabin's memorial service in New York's Madison Square Garden, she recited Walt Whitman's poem, "O Captain, My Captain," which was written for Abraham Lincoln after the president's death.

She has also attended numerous charity functions to raise funds for Israel-related educational projects.

Of Tel Aviv, Turner said, "I'm from New York, but phew! What a pace. When do people sleep?"

Jerusalem she found "profoundly disturbing."

"I've traveled most of the world, but maybe this could be the center."

Turner did not go to the Western Wall to pray, "because it's segregated. But all that feeling of compressed energy there, built up from the thousands of years and millions of people's dreams and hopes and beliefs, that is tangible and frightening."

She visited the Holy Sepulchre, but "didn't like" it. "It's cold and dark, and seems to me to be like a shrine of death.

"When we visited Yad Vashem, we were pestered by photographers," she noted. "I want to come again more privately. I don't want to shed my tears in public."

Turner, who was born into a Methodist family (her great-grandfather was a missionary in China) said she believes in God, but "more in a Judeo than a Christian way, because I dislike the form of religion that was forced on me."

She and Weiss make their home in Manhattan, Turner says, "just next to the synagogue by the Lincoln Center on 65th Street." The couple's 9-year-old daughter "goes to Jewish classes, and we celebrate all the Jewish holidays. We do the full Haggadah service at Passover, for which I cook."

nike if they don't pay attention to him

They navigate by word of mouth or by the arc of the sun. Often, they don’t know where or when they’ll get their next meal. Some go days without eating. If a train stops even briefly, they crouch by the tracks, cup their hands, and steal sips of water from shiny puddles tainted with diesel fuel. At night, they huddle together on the train cars or next to the tracks. They sleep in trees, in tall grass, or in beds made of leaves. Mens Nike Free Run 2 Yup, expensive sneakers can be a major investment. But unlike classic cars where the original parts, the original design, the original make are coveted the biggest draw are re issues of previous sneakers with different patterns, materials and colors, these are known as “colorways”. For example, along with the brand new Air Jordan XX8 coming out February 16th, there was a re issue of the Air Jordan 1 with a Black/Royal colorway (the original was black/red and white) and Air Jordan 3 “Joker” colorway a black shoe with lime green accents (the original was black, red with “elephant skin” accents). Womens Nike Free Run 3 Wanting to be a part of this movie and feeling like we have some can’t miss ideas, Cracked submitted many scenes to the film’s distributor for consideration. We haven’t heard back yet, but we are confident most will be accepted as they are pure cinematic gold. One such submission can be read below: Mens Nike Free Run 3 In 1991, Fredrick told the Cincinnati Business Courier about how they “made thousands of bucks and could have made more, but we ran out of T shirts.” Trouble was, he and his pal didn’t know anything about licensing. The school, of course, did. “We got called in.” Fredrick told the Courier. “We had to give all the money back to the school.”

Les habitants ont dit d'arrêter les chiens de recyclage et des serpents

Les habitants ont dit d’arrêter les chiens de recyclage et des serpents

Lazy ménages mettent serpents vivants et les chiens morts dans leurs bacs de recyclage à travers Mount Gambier et le conseil local n’est pas impressionné.

Le service de recyclage a été créé il ya quelques années en réponse aux appels constants pour un moyen plus facile pour les maisons à l’élimination des déchets réutilisables.

Mais maintenant, il semble que le privilège est maltraité par certains ménages et le conseil a promis d’accélérer son processus de contrôle et amende pour non-conformité.

Conseiller Des Mutton, qui travaille également dans le domaine du recyclage, explique peut-être les contrôles effectués avec une plus grande prudence à partir de maintenant.

«La semaine dernière sac celine prix nous avons eu un serpent vivant qui est une préoccupation majeure et je pense que quelqu’un a dû le mettre là-dedans, il ne serait pas entrer par lui-même, dit-il.

Le contenu des poubelles vont à la Centre de recyclage Triangle vert et sur une bande transporteuse et il ya une ligne de gens qui ont à choisir les différents éléments recyclables.

Il dit des animaux vivants celine luggage prix ainsi que les sacs celine morts peuvent poser un problème de santé et de sécurité pour les travailleurs si elles sont placées dans le flux de déchets.

Mais d’autres éléments sont également à l’origine des problèmes pour le service de sacs celine recyclage, notamment de vieux vêtements, des oreillers, le polystyrène et les sacs adoucisseur d’eau, qui ne peuvent pas être recyclés.

Ces éléments peuvent aller dans les bacs d’enfouissement verts, donc nous avons juste besoin d’être plus conscients ce qui se passe dans les bacs bleus de recyclage», explique Cr mouton.

Cr Mutton a recommandé les gens lisent les étiquettes sur les déchets et n’importe quoi avec un symbole recyclable peuvent être mis dans les bacs bleus.

Il recommande également les gens lisent l’étiquette sur le dessus de leur bac de recyclage qui détaille ce qui est et n’est pas acceptable.

Cependant, bien que les étiquettes de contenants disent sacs en plastique sont interdits, Cr Mutton dit vous pouvez les mettre dans votre bac bleu.

Mount Gambier est plutôt chanceux que nous pouvons recycler les sacs en plastique, la plupart des autres zones ne peuvent pas les manipuler, dit-il.

Les sacs en sacs celine plastique peuvent aller dans mais le problème tend à être ce qui est en eux quand ils sont placés dans le flux de recyclage des déchets.

Nous recevons beaucoup de couches sales qui ne peuvent être recyclés et nous sommes aussi beaucoup de problèmes avec les organismes d’écrevisses et les déchets de pêcheurs, qui ne doit pas être mis au recyclage.

Juste celine marque une pensée pour les pauvres gens qui ont à faire la séparation au centre de recyclage.

La moyenne nationale pour la contamination des cours d’eau de recyclage est de 13 pour cent et depuis le début, le service de sac celine trapeze recyclage de Mount Gambier a été bien en dessous de cette moyenne.

Mais au cours des deux dernières années, les niveaux de contamination de recyclage de la ville ont sauté bien plus que celine paris la moyenne de 20 pour cent.

Rendre les choses sacs celine plus compliquées, c’est que le service de recyclage de Mount sac luggage celine Gambier prend également en déchets de la subvention de district, Robe et domaines Conseil Range mimosa.
