first_imgPBS is currently working on a new documentary project dubbed American Epic, a three-part documentary series, with Jack White, T Bone Burnett, and Robert Redford as executive producers. American Epic explores early recording technology from the 1920’s and how it captured the sounds of some of the first musicians formative to the genres of blues, country, gospel, Hawaiian, Cajun, and folk music. Ahead of the premiere of the documentary series premiere on May 16th, a new clip has been released showing Jack White and the legendary hip-hop artist Nas performing on a modernized version of Memphis Jug Band’s 1928 song “On the Road Again.”Before going into their cover of the 1920’s blues song, which features Nas rapping over the traditional jug band sound, the short video also features interviews with the rapper. Nas speaks to the connection between modern rap music and 1920’s blues, saying, “The Memphis Jug Band — it sounds like something today. These guys are talking about women carrying guns, protecting their honor, chasing down some woman who’s done them dirty. This is not high-society black folks. This is the down-under, street, wild black folks that they’re singing about. And it’s the same as today — it’s the same as rap music today … This music from Memphis: They were rapping about street life and gangsta life and hustling — just a dark side of the world. It just goes to show me that rapping is a natural, poetic thing. It’s always been here. As long as there was English and black people, there was rap.”The series will also feature a full-length movie called The American Epic Sessions, during which various musicians come together to record on the primitive recording technology of the 1920’s. Artists to appear on The American Epic Sessions include Jack White, Beck, Elton John, Nas, Willie Nelson, the Avett Brothers, Alabama Shakes, Los Lobos and Steve Martin & Edie Brickell, and the film will be released on June 6th.last_img read more

LifestyleNewsRegionalTravel Michael Blackburn resigns as head of LIAT pilots union by: – December 23, 2011 Captain Michael Blackburn said he does not believe his resignation would negatively affect negotiations between LIAPA and the airline management.ST JOHN’S, Antigua, Friday December 23, 2011 – Captain Michael Blackburn has resigned as Chairman of the Leeward Islands Pilots Association (LIALPA) as he prepares to file a lawsuit against regional carrier LIAT challenging his summary dismissal earlier this month.Captain Blackburn said his resignation Thursday would prevent possible conflict of interest since he may have to call on association members to aid his defense.The senior pilot said he will file the challenge by the first week in January, the latest.He is also aiming to clear his name following allegations he compromised flight safety during a trip to St Lucia.The former union boss denied being pressured into making the decision and expressed full confidence in the current LIALPA leadership.“We have a very effective executive council remaining in office and a new chairman would be elected within 60 days. There is no amount of persuasion by members who support me fully that could make me to stay on,” he said.“LIAT has made some allegations regarding my professional conduct recently and I have to exonerate myself and I would take whatever steps I have to, to do it. That would place me in a compromising position because the position of chairman of the association is very powerful so that I would be in a position to exercise undue leverage or the appearance thereof, which is equally important to me and therefore I have no choice but to step down.”The former chairman stated he does not believe his resignation will negatively affect the position of LIAPA, which along with other unions are involved in an industrial dispute with the management of the Antigua-based airline.“It might even strengthen the resolve of guys who will realise they can operate without me,” he said of his resignation.“If the company is under the belief that because I’m not there they can do whatever they would like or they can take advantage of the situation, then the Caribbean people would pay a serious price.”The trade unionist denied reports of serious disunity within the association, saying “there is no big division.”He also urged LIALPA to proceed with changes to the constitution to ensure there is collective leadership rather than centralized power for the chairman.Captain Blackburn was employed with LIAT for 34 years, and served 32 of them on the LIALPA executive.His sacking led to days of industrial action by pilots, which left thousands of regional travelers stranded.Caribbean 360 Newslast_img read more


first_imgChelsea manager Frank Lampard is under pressure to deliver a serious Premier League title challenge after a spending spree fuelled by his desire to catch champions Liverpool. Lampard showed promise in his first season by steering the Blues into the Champions League with a fourth place domestic finish. But Arsenal exposed the flaws that were visible in Lampard’s side all season with a 2-1 win against their London rivals in the FA Cup final. Having finished 33 points behind the Reds and 15 adrift of second placed Manchester City last term, the response from the Stamford Bridge hierarchy has been emphatic. City set the record for the biggest total spend by a Premier League club when Pep Guardiola splashed out £223.8 million ($295 million) ahead of the 2017-18 season. But Chelsea are on course to shatter that mark. After enduring a transfer ban in the 2019 summer window before failing to sign a single player during the 2020 January market, owner Roman Abramovich sanctioned the kind of money-is-no-object recruitment drive that was commonplace when he first bought the club. After relying on a cadre of promising youngsters to kick-start his reign, Lampard has prioritised proven talents in the transfer market.

Lampard will hope the lavish investment reaps the same rewards for his club as City enjoyed in 2018, when they were crowned champions thanks in large part to the spending of owner Sheikh Mansour. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 He paid a combined £141 million for Leipzig striker Timo Werner, Ajax playmaker Hakim Ziyech and Leicester left-back Ben Chilwell. The west Londoners are expected to wrap up their £90 million swoop for Bayer Leverkusen forward Kai Havertz this week, which would take them past City’s record spree. Malang Sarr has also arrived on a free transfer after the 21-year-old centre-back left Nice, but he is seen as one for the future and will be sent on loan. Loading… last_img read more


first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on August 28, 2013 at 1:41 am Contact David: [email protected] | @DBWilson2 There had to be some hesitancy. Christian Hackenberg knew what he could be up against at Penn State — perpetual scrutiny, a thinner supporting cast and three seasons without postseason play.But it’s still Penn State. There’s still the tradition of excellence. The Nittany Lions still play in front of hordes of adoring fans that remained steadfast through scandal and controversy.That all sold the school to the quarterback, but even more important was the new man at the helm.“He wanted to play for Bill O’Brien,” said former Fork Union (Va.) Military Academy head coach Micky Sullivan, who coached Hackenberg at the high school.Hackenberg hadn’t even been on the radar when former head coach Joe Paterno was finishing up at PSU. It wasn’t until O’Brien was hired and made Hackenberg one of his first recruiting priorities that Penn State would find its eventual quarterback of the future.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn less than two months a rookie head coach sold a program embroiled in scandal to the No. 2 quarterback recruit in the nation.“Bill O’Brien’s a special guy,” Sullivan said. “I’m very impressed with the things he does, the way he handles himself.”Lining up under center against Syracuse on Saturday could be Hackenberg, who was one of O’Brien’s top priorities when the coach first arrived on campus. Hackenberg, a true freshman quarterback and Penn State’s first five-star commit after the Jerry Sandusky scandal, could make the first start of his career when the Nittany Lions play the Orange at 3:30 p.m. at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.With the idealistic quarterback — Hackenberg’s 6-foot-4 build fits the Nittany Lions’ prostyle offense to perfection — and the mastermind head coach, PSU hasn’t missed a beat. It would have been bowl-eligible last season and is receiving votes in the preseason AP Top 25 this year.For a moment, though, everything could have fallen apart in the wake of the scandal.Running back Silas Redd, who played two years for Penn State, was the first one to go. He departed for Southern California and it seemed more would follow in droves.But most stuck with it. And then the recruits started to come.Hackenberg was the first, but Adam Breneman, the No. 2 tight end in the country, joined him nine days later. And, most importantly, they stuck with it even after sanctions came down.“I think it says something about the type of character that guy had and all the other recruits that we had that held on to their commitment despite the sanctions,” guard John Urschel said. “It’s a great place for football and there’s something special here and I think they recognize that, and I think that’s why they kept their commitments.”Hackenberg committed after the scandal broke. But before sanctions came down, for a time, he had to rethink his decision.He sat down with Sullivan and his family and went through the whole litany of pros and cons. Hackenberg’s answer, Sullivan said: “I want to go there.”“Was I surprised that he stuck with it? No. Was there wavering or questioning? I think at times, at least early on, we looked,” Sullivan said. “You know, ‘OK, what are we going to do? Do you really want to do this?’ And Christian always said, ‘I want to go to Penn State.’”Hackenberg was not available to comment because O’Brien does not allow freshmen to talk to the media.Hackenberg only arrived at PSU this summer, but immediately he’s been thrown into the fire, competing for the starting quarterback job at a Big 10 school. He relishes the spotlight, Sullivan said. Fork Union opened the season in his senior year with a game televised on ESPN. His year ended with the Under Armour All-America Game.People don’t talk as much about the scandal now as much as they did last year.“It’s nice to not have the media be talking about things other than football,” Urschel said.But Hackenberg sticking with his commitment will inevitably once again thrust him into the spotlight.“That just shows the type of guy that he is, shows his character and the things that matter to him the most,” safety Malcolm Willis said. “Now that he’s here, he’s in a battle for that quarterback spot.”But Hackenberg can only carry the Nittany Lions so far. In a best-case scenario — and assuming he doesn’t redshirt — he will play in one bowl game in his career. If he leaves early, he will never carry them to the postseason.So his arrival is as much symbolic as it is tangible. PSU has three more years before it can again be the power it once was. Once that time passes, the Nittany Lions will be in good hands.“As for the future,” Willis said, “as long as Penn State football keeps doing what it’s doing, then we should be fine.” Commentslast_img read more
