Albums: Siobhan Donaghy, Revolution In Me

first_imgDespite the release of two singles ‘Overrated’ and ‘Twist Of Fate’ (both included here), Ms Donaghy is probably still best known as the Sugababe who quit just as the band went massive. However, whereas the rest of the Sugababes have taken advantage of the split to make some of the most hook-ridden, catchy pop music of their career, Siobhan has made the decision to make what is being promoted as a more serious, mature album. Despite the production talents of Cameron McVey (Massive Attack, Portishead) and a clutch of young supporting musicians, her “fresh new direction” for the most part translates as sub-Dido indie-lite. Part of the problem is certainly the lyrics – clumsy rhymes and levels of wishy-washy abstraction last heard on Oasis’ ‘Be Here Now’ abound, along with risible non sequiturs such as “Here’s the paradox / We’re like presents all wrapped up” on obligatory anti-war number ‘Iodine’. In fact the only line to stand out first listen was “For every turd / There’s a turning point.” The fact that I was disappointed that I’d actually misheard a certain word (“turn”) in those lines says a lot about how much my interest was held. Musically she can certainly sing in a competent, ethereal, if non-distinctive way. McVey’s efforts, mostly drum machines, fine guitars with a dose of synths often add up to a pleasant enough track. If ‘Twist Of Fate’ (her most recent single, bordering on the engaging) left you wanting more though, you should beware as it’s the exception rather than the rule. Maybe one for those who have worn out their copy of ‘Life For Rent’ and like inoffensive pop-indie. Just don’t expect to be moved…ARCHIVE: 1st Week MT2003last_img read more

first_imgNancy and her husband Bill Hughes at the Polling Institute ribbon cutting with former Stockton President Herman J. Saatkamp. By Maddy VitaleOcean City resident Nancy Hughes, the wife of former Ambassador to Panama and Congressman William J. Hughes, died Thursday night at home at 82.Mayor Jay Gillian said in his weekly message posted on the city’s website, “I’m sad to report on the passing of Nancy Hughes at her Ocean City home last night. She and her husband, Bill, have been good friends and mentors to me. When I ran for mayor on a platform of “Unity in the Community,” Ambassador and Mrs. Hughes were among my greatest influences. That’s not only how he governed as a former congressman but how they both lived their lives. They taught me that I could be the best mayor by working with everybody.”In her public and private life, Nancy Hughes was a supporter of many causes in Ocean City, and she always did so with grace and class, Gillian said. “She has been a prominent part of our community for more than 55 years and a dedicated mother, church member and citizen,” Gillian noted. “Michele and I would like to extend our prayers and condolences to the entire Hughes family and to all who knew her,” the mayor said.The Bill & Nancy Hughes Performing Arts Center at Ocean City High School bears her name because of her dedication to the community and the school district.Ocean City Board of Education President Joseph Clark recalled Nancy Hughes as a “well-rounded person who had a lot of things to juggle throughout her life.”“She was a very, very outgoing person. I remember her as a charismatic person. She was also a doer who got things done,” Clark said. Clark noted that Nancy Hughes was supportive of her husband’s political career as a former congressman and ambassador. “She was right at his side the whole time,” Clark said. Stockton President Harvey Kesselman said in a statement that she was an extraordinary individual who gave so much to so many.  “She was an unwavering advocate of Stockton, and was present at so many of our historic events.  We will miss her immensely,” Kesselman said.Check back for more details.

The Met Philly Reopens With Bob Dylan Performance Following Extensive Renovations [Photo/Video]

first_imgPhiladelphia’s newest concert venue, The Met Philly, reopened its doors on Monday evening to a sold-out crowd of 3,500 to see Bob Dylan. The concert was the first to take place in the city’s former Metropolitan Opera House located on North Broad Street since Live Nation and local real estate developer Eric Blumenfeld announced their plans to renovate the old building this past May. On Monday night, with the building’s $56 million renovation now complete, fans entered the Met 2.0 for a 20-song performance by Dylan and his band for a night they probably won’t be forgetting anytime soon.Having been shuttered to the outside world for nearly two decades, the former home to prestigious music and performing arts organizations like the Philadelphia Opera Company and the Metropolitan Opera has a new identity, and hopes to welcome fans and artists across all genres to come in and enjoy performances in its historic halls. As seen in some of the images below, the building’s main theater has been converted to accommodate both seated and standing formatted events. In other parts of the old opera house, smaller rooms have been dedicated to becoming more intimate lounges with smaller performance spaces.“This is one of the greatest projects we have ever been involved with, as well as the most complicated financial structure in my 37- year-career,” Procida Funding’s Billy Procida said in a statement about the reopening. “Coming in ahead of schedule and on budget to restore this grand landmark makes it all the better.” Procida Funding were one of the key financiers for the project’s enormous budget–although who can put a price on incredible life-changing events? Speaking of financiers, The Grateful Dead‘s Bob Weir and some of his other former bandmates also joined in on becoming investors for the project. Fans should hope to see and hear the guitarist when he presumably makes his debut at the new venue at some point, as his side projects like Wolf Bros make a point to hit the theatre circuit when he’s not headlining stadiums with Dead & Company.Artists and performers who are currently scheduled to play at The Met Philly later this month include Weezer, Ween, violinist Lindsey Stirling, John Oliver, and Philadelphia’s own Kurt Vile & The Violators, just to name a few.The Met Philly – Opening Night With Bob Dylan – 12/4/2018[Video: Jeff Smith]Ticketing information, as well as a full schedule of upcoming events at The Met Philly, can be found at the venue’s official website.[Photo: John J.

Gong Fu club aims to increase interest in martial arts

first_imgStep, step, pivot, kick, and giving back to the community are the newest movements of Notre Dame. The Gong Fu club, started by graduate student Erik Blair last semester, is expanding martial arts beyond the workout room walls. “Very few people in the Midwest practice Gong Fu, commonly known as Kung Fu, so this club represents an attempt to drum up interest for the practice here on campus,” Blair said. Blair said he decided to start the club after meeting with several students from Bethel College, Saint Mary’s College and Notre Dame who shared his love for the martial arts. “I’ve spoken with several students and professors from the area who practice Gong Fu, and most of them are affiliated with the ROTC program on campus,” Blair said. “I was in the Navy for several years before I began my doctorate, so with this common thread, we decided to … share our love for Gong Fu.” Blair, who passed the test for his black belt in front of the highest teacher of Gong Fu, said he hopes the club’s members will eventually achieve the same feat in order to create a group that is self-sustaining. “Ideally, our young group will have 10 members committed to the goal of reaching the level of black belt in their study,” Blair said. “I would like them to advance in the art as much as possible because I definitely want to get the club to a point where it is self sustaining.” Blair said he will be hosting his teacher as a guest sensei to come and train with the club at the end of March. But Blair said he hopes his students will gain something beyond physical strength. Instead, he wants the club to enhance members’ minds. “There’s a sort of a mindset that comes with Gong Fu, and a responsibility that comes with it,” he said. “The Gong Fu that we practice is valid for self defense, and when I train people, I train them to think about it as a defensive tool only.  It’s not for offensive purposes.  I try my best to get them thinking about avoiding trouble rather than seeking it.  That sort of training helps people to start thinking about their words and actions to avoid an engagement.” Blair said he also wants the club to serve as a social outlet for his students. “[We’re] launching a Kung Fu Movie Night series in February,” he said. “This will be a periodic screening of some of the best Kung Fu movies of the past 20 years, including Ip Man, The Matrix and Kung Fu Panda. I also hope to fit in some more obscure gems such as Twin Warriors and Kung Fu Hustle, or maybe Fist of Legend. This is an opportunity to involve more people in the club, to have [a] more social opportunity for members to interact apart from practice and training and to promote the appreciation of Kung Fu on campus.” In addition, Blair said he hopes the club can give back to the community that has welcomed it. “We are going to the Healthwin Nursing Home to perform a demonstration there with some martial arts techniques,” Blair said. “We’re also going to be going there on a regular basis to help with their Saturday Bingo sessions.” Students currently in the group said they have been satisfied with the activities of the club thus far. “I have always been interested in studying Gong Fu, and this group has finally given me that opportunity,” Chad Stevenson, a graduate student majoring in electrical engineering, said.  “I knew Erik [before joining the group], and his workouts emphasize the fundamentals of applicable self-defense.” Blair said the group will meet regularly throughout the week so that group members may build on the skills developed from previous meetings. “The group will meet on Mondays, Fridays and Saturdays, with the two sessions later in the week scheduled so that students can easily fit our group into their busy schedules,” Blair said.  Above all, Blair said he wants students to realize that despite the shape they are in, most people can participate in martial arts. “Everyone, regardless of ability, is welcome to attend our meetings and experience a Gong Fu workout,” he said. “It’s not just an exoteric thing.”last_img read more

Dominica not equipped to provide real solutions to Youth Violence & the Law

first_img Tweet In photo: Tiyani Behanzin during his presentation at a Youth Symposium recently. A Former Magistrate in Dominica has said that the country is not equipped to find any real solutions to issues of youth violence.Tiyani Behanzin, who has been dubbed by many as a ‘strong-arm’ in minimizing youth violence on the island, believes that the answers to issues of youth violence lie within the intellect of the same young persons.During his address at a youth symposium on the topic ‘Youth Violence and the Law’, Behanzin said that the contribution of these same young people is critical in finding the solutions.“I have lost hope with those of the older generations who are grappling with the issue of youth violence and the law, and I think that we’re not equipped to be able to provide any real solutions and I think when we have an impasse, we need to look to the young people to make them contribute…”He said that the influence by international cultures on our youth is also a major barrier in dealing with the issue of Youth Violence.“Technology is what defines who we have become. And in that confusion sometimes, is a young person trying to find and define for themselves some identity and that creates some unique problems. The system that has defined us has never really accepted us as an equal player as they fashion for us the societies that we now run and manage and that has to cause conflict in terms of our identity”, he said.Behanzin, who sat on the bench for approximately one year in Dominica, was the initiator of a Peace Conference in Wesley and was also the featured speaker at many youth seminars, conferences and rallies.Dominica Vibes News Sharing is caring!
