Roger Waters Teases New Music With Nigel Godrich In This Video Update From The Studio

first_imgWaters shared the new music clip via his Instagram page: In an interview with Rolling Stone a few months back, Waters discussed the story behind the album:“So I wrote this whole thing – part magic carpet ride, part political rant, part anguish. I played this to Nigel, and he goes, “Oh, I like that little bit” – about two minutes long – “and that bit.” And so we’ve been working. I’ve also been falling in love, deeply in love. So the record is really about love – which is what all of my records have been about, in fact. It’s pondering not just why we are killing the children. It’s also the question of how do we take these moments of love – if we are granted any in our lives – and allow that love to shine on the rest of existence, on others.”This in-studio photo was also posted to Waters’ Facebook page:Roger Waters Us And Them 2017 Tour DatesMay 26, Kansas City, MO Sprint CenterMay 28, Louisville, KY KFC Yum!

Head Over Heels, Produced by Gwyneth Paltrow, Aims for B’dway

first_imgGwyneth Paltrow(Photo: Bruce Glikas) Head Over Heels View Comments From Goop to Broadway producer? Gwyneth Paltrow is backing Head Over Heels, a musical featuring the songs of 1980s girl group The Go-Go’s. According to the New York Post, she was one of the producers behind a recent industry reading of the show, which was directed by Tony winner Michael Mayer (Spring Awakening).With a book by Jeff Whitty (Avenue Q), music and lyrics by the Go-Go’s and direction by Ed Sylvanus Iskandar, the tuner made its world premiere this past summer at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.Inspired by Sir Philip Sidney’s 16th-century pastoral romance, Arcadia, the new musical is an Elizabethan love story turned on its head (familiar material to Paltrow). A duke. A mysterious prophecy. Two daughters: one mobbed by suitors, the other…not so much. And all set to the beat of 1980s pop icons the Go-Go’s.Originally fronted by Belinda Carlisle, The Go-Go’s were the first and only all-female band that both wrote their own songs and played their own instruments to top the Billboard album charts. Hits included “Our Lips Are Sealed,” “We Got the Beat,” “How Much More” and “Head Over Heels,” below.center_img Related Shows Show Closed This production ended its run on Jan. 6, 2019last_img read more

3 things you think your boss wants … but they don’t

first_imgSometimes after we’ve worked at a company for a significant time period, we begin to get more confident in what we think our superior wants from us. We’ve taken notes and put careful thought into what we think will make us the perfect employee. The truth is, what you view as perfection may actually be the opposite of what your boss wants from you. Consider the following three things many employees mistakenly think their boss wants.Constant check-insInstinctively many of us feel the need to provide our boss with regular updates on projects and tasks we are working on. In reality, supervisors usually prefer to be left out of the day-to-day details and appreciate simply being told when issues arise. They don’t need employees to constantly check in because they are busy with important responsibilities of their own. You have been hired because your boss has confidence in your abilities. So, remember that they trust you and expect you to handle your work without communicating with them on every little detail.ExcusesWe all make mistakes; that’s what makes us human. Bosses accept that there will be missteps and that no employee is perfect. When a hiccup occurs and you feel at fault, you may want to immediately make excuses for what happened and your role in the error. To your boss, this may look like you are pushing the blame elsewhere and have not learned from the slip-up. So instead of endless excuses, simply apologize for the blunder and make sure your boss understands it won’t happen again.ComplimentsIt is very important to praise others when they reach goals in the workplace. After all, nothing motivates employees more than a simple “congratulations.” When it comes to your superior, go easy on the superfluous compliments. This may be taken as “sucking up” and is a turn off to both your boss and your colleagues. So, be respectful and appreciative but keep the flattery in check. 27SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Wendy Moody Wendy Moody is a Senior Editor with Wendy works with the editorial team to help edit the content including current news, press releases, jobs and events.

Fine start for Edinburgh

first_imgEdinburgh pulled off a shock win – only their second in their last 24 visits to Ireland – as Anthony Foley’s Munster fluffed their lines at Thomond Park. Edinburgh were briefly down to 13 men when Leonardi’s fellow flanker Hamish Watson was singled out for a ruck offence, but Jack Cuthbert dotted down in the 48th minute to leave Foley’s misfiring side nine points adrift. Stander’s second try set up a tense final quarter but Munster failed to score again with Ian Keatley, who had an off-night with the boot, narrowly missing a last-gasp long range penalty. One of Edinburgh’s summer signings, John Andress, made an immediate impact in the first scrum, driving John Ryan backwards to set up a fourth minute penalty which Heathcote converted. Heathcote, who started in place of late withdrawal Greig Tonks, rifled over his second successful penalty after BJ Botha was caught offside. A marginal forward pass from Heathcote denied Dougie Fife the opportunity to raid up the right wing – in plenty of space – but error-strewn Munster were really struggling to settle. They finally reached the Scots’ 22 at the tail-end of the first quarter, with Shane Buckley standing out during a busy set of phases, however Edinburgh robustly defended a close-in maul and cleared the danger. Simon Zebo was unable to latch onto his own kick through midfield and Heathcote suffered his first miss from a difficult penalty attempt on the right wing. Edinburgh’s aggressive pack – led by man of the match Cornell du Preeze – held the edge until flanker Leonardi saw yellow for a 32nd-minute tip tackle on Zebo. Munster mauled up close from a lineout and the recycled ball saw Stander crash over past both centres for a well-taken try. Keatley missed the conversion though and Edinburgh finished the first half strongly, busy centre Sam Beard’s forward pass ruling out a try for Tim Visser before Heathcote split the posts with the final kick. That good work was undone when Watson was binned for killing Munster ball after an incisive break by Zebo. Nonetheless, 14-man Edinburgh soon broke downfield for a fine try, Cuthbert’s timely injection of pace helping him gobble up Beard’s grubber kick to score in the right corner. Stander – the focal point of the Munster pack – answered back on the hour mark, rolling his way over the try-line having shrugged off Heathcote’s initial tackle. Keatley missed the conversion but was on target with a 69th minute penalty to make it 14-13. As time ticked on Heathcote sent a testing place-kick wide and after WP Nel became the third Edinburgh player to be carded, Keatley could not save Munster from their third successive Thomond Park defeat which is a first in the professional era. Alan Solomons’ men gained a measure of revenge for last season’s 55-12 hammering by the Reds, beginning the new GUINNESS PRO12 campaign with a well-earned four points and a 14-13 success. New fly-half Tom Heathcote coolly slotted three penalties to give Edinburgh a deserved 9-5 half-time lead, with CJ Stander touching down for the hosts while Tomas Leonardi was in the sin-bin.

Black Stars donate GHC 10,000 to “Baby Joe”

first_imgGhana players donated a combined sum of GHC 10,000 towards the recovery costs of the sick Joseph “Baby Joe” Tagoe.Tagoe, a well-known entertainer of the Black Stars known for his homourous dancing and crying, fell ill in the months prior to the World Cup and has over the last few weeks been left bed-ridden at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi after a surgery.Footy-Ghana claim that the 24-man Ghana team that played Uganda during an Afcon 2015 qualifier in Kumasi on Saturdayeach forfeited their $100 per diem allowance in an effort to gather funds to donate to Tagoe.This followed a pledge last May by captain Asamoah Gyan join forces with his teammates to provide financial assistance to the once energetic Baby Joe – also often referred to as “Ojoe Mensu” [Joe don’t cry].The report also claims Ghana coach James Kwesi Appiah and his assistant Maxwell Konadu donated a sum of GHC 1000 earlier in the week after a visit to Tagoe. It remains to be seen if this commendable gesture will win the Stars some hearts after what has been a nightmarish last few weeks for them, facing increasing public hostility after their chaotic campaign at the World Cup in Brazil.last_img read more
