Other surprises tonight were the scores that some of the couples received, both high and low. Here are the couples, from the highest on the leaderboard to the lowest. (Elizabeth and Val had a score of 26 for their Viennese waltz and 30 for their trio salsa for a total of 56.). Corbin and Karina — waltz; trio jazz with Witney Carson (DWTS Troupe). This was a beautiful routine, with flowing lines and romantic feeling. Carrie Ann said it was dreamy but told Corbin he “wasn’t on his center” in two parts of the routine. Len told Corbin that his dancing was so expressive but that he wished there had been more of the dance in hold, and Bruno called it “enchanting.”.
Hill on Thursday said the new law will save lives, “If the required inspections are performed, the city or county overseeing a fire department will know,” Hill said, “And if the requirement is not met, governing bodies can take the opportunity to learn why and pink ballarina, ballet shoes, ribbon paper clips, bookmarks work with departments to close the gap.”, State law requires inspections once a year, but there is no enforcement of the law or penalty when inspections are missed, A survey of 11 large fire departments over an eight-year period found that 96 percent of schools went more than a year between inspections at least once between 2010 and 2017, Schools in Oakland and Redwood City often went years without inspections, records showed, At apartment buildings, 93 percent went more than a year between inspections at least once..
All of the songs feel surprisingly fresh here, stripped of their familiar arrangements and harmonies. Wilmurt is a stealthy songstress, never calling attention to her voice or her showmanship, but rather slowly inhabiting each melody as if she were simply talking to us about her life. One of the most beautiful moments occurs during Johnny Cash’s “A Legend in My Time.” Shedding tears as the soldiers take their leave, Olga retreats into her solitude. The sharpness of her pain cuts to the bone. Wilmurt is also devastating in a version of “Illusions.” If you didn’t recognize it as a Marlene Dietrich favorite, you might think it was a new song, written by Wilmurt. That’s how much unassuming emotional candor she brings to each lyric.
