Portland police warn of delays as protesters plan march

first_imgPORTLAND — The Occupy Wall Street movement that is in its third week in New York and has inspired demonstrations across the country is slated to spread to Portland on Thursday.Portland demonstrators plan to meet at noon at Tom McCall Waterfront Park near the Burnside Bridge, then march through downtown Portland starting at 2:30 p.m. Then they’ll settle into a place to base their demonstration, which could continue indefinitely.The ongoing demonstration in New York is generally unified by feelings of social and economic injustice, but has been slow to advocate a particular policy or target a particular institution. It adopted a declaration of grievances last week.“They haven’t really targeted individual institutions or power centers,” said Portland State University sociology professor Robert Liebman. “It’s more a question of, how can people exercise voice outside of channels they think are either congested or corrupted?”Similarly, those organizing Portland’s planned march and rally say they’ll come up with a formal message later. They’re careful to say they’re speaking as individuals, because the group hasn’t reached a consensus on its own message yet.last_img read more

They have also lost most of their territory in Syria.Numerous deadly attacks around the world over the year, including in Afghanistan, Britain, Egypt and Somalia, are claimed by or blamed on the group or others linked to Al-Qaeda.- Climate: Record disasters -The year in which Trump decides, on June 1, to leave the landmark 2015 Paris climate accord is marked by a series of natural disasters, including record-breaking hurricanes, earthquakes and devastating fires that affect several countries.It is set to be one of the three warmest years ever recorded.last_img

Judge Denies Prince Heirs Request to Scuttle Tidal Deal

Judge Denies Prince Heirs Request to Scuttle Tidal Deal

first_imgIn a letter dated Tuesday, Carver County District Court Judge Kevin Eide denied a request from three of Prince’s heirs to reconsider the artist’s estate’s recent agreement with Tidal, which was approved by the court in May. Attorneys for heirs Sharon Nelson, Norrine Nelson and John R. Nelson submitted a heavily redacted request earlier this month that, according to a response letter from the estate, requested reconsideration of that agreement on the basis of news reports that alleged Tidal had falsified its streaming numbers.Included in the deal is a week’s exclusive streaming rights for an album of unreleased material that will be co-curated by Jay-Z and is scheduled for release next year; the agreement also settled “previously unresolved legal matters” between the estate and Tidal, which had been ongoing in the wake of the confused state of the artist’s business affairs after his death from an accidental overdose in April 2016. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Friedemann argued that “The Nelsons fail to raise any issue that merits reconsideration,” stating, among other claims, that their request is “based on accusations about Tidal reported in one newspaper article in Norway over six weeks ago,” which claims that Tidal falsified its streaming numbers for high-profile releases including Kanye West’s “Life of Pablo” and Beyonce’s “Lemonade.” The Nelsons’ letter fails to acknowledge that Tidal has denied the allegations as ‘lies and falsehoods,’ and has stated that information ‘was stolen and manipulated.’ Unproven media reports do not constitute an ‘intervening legal development,’ or demonstrate that the Court’s Order was ‘palpably wrong in some respect.’“The Nelsons’ request is meritless and should be denied,” she concludes.The heirs’ attorney did not immediately respond to Variety’s request for comment.In 2015, Prince struck a deal with Tidal that made it, at the time, the exclusive streaming partner for his catalog. After his death, most of his Warner catalog returned to all major streaming services in February of last year, but much of it remained either unavailable or only on Tidal while the two parties worked to settle the deal. That agreement was announced last month.last_img read more

The other singles of the album, ‘Surey Tumi’, composed by the duo has been sung by Amit Kumar and is written by another lyricist. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life”We all dream. But not every dream is realised. Unless you have dedication, patience, perseverance and you work towards achieving it. And of course you have to be passionate towards your dream. We also had a dream which we nurtured for over 25 years. Our dream was realised when the legend, Asha Bhonsle, whom many consider as an Avatar of Goddess Saraswati, sang her comeback Pujo song for us in the album ‘Pujoy Asha’. We are also happy to once again work with one of the finest singers of all time, Amit Kumar for the song ‘Surey Tumi’. As usual, it was pure magic from him. Both the songs are our tribute to the maestros, Kishore Kumar & RD Burman said music composers, Shiladitya – Raj. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killed’Ebar Pujoy Elaam Phire’ was recorded by Asha Bhonsle exactly a week after she completed her 85th birthday.Though ‘Aamar Khatar Patay’ released in 1963 was Asha Ji’s first Pujo song composed by Manna Dey, it was 50 years back in 1968 when we first heard Asha Ji sing Puja songs for RD Burman and the songs were ‘Eyi Edike Esho’ & ‘Jabo Ki Jabona” penned down by Gouriprasanna Majumdar. Both being blockbusters. In subsequent years, we got musical gems like ‘Jete Dao Amay Dekona’, ‘Chokhe Chokhe Kotha Bolo’, ‘Jaanina Kothay Tumi’, ‘Jaaire Jaire Bela Je Jaaire’, ‘Phoole Gondho Nei’, ‘Mohuaye Jomechhe Aaj Mou Go’, ‘Shondhabelaye Tumi Aami Boshe Achhi Dujone’, ‘Moyna Bolo Tumi Krishno Raadhe’ and ‘Kine De Reshmi Churi’ among others. With ‘Surey Tumi’, Amit Kumar, who is still captivating the audience for almost 5 decades with his rich repertoire of Bengali and Hindi songs, recorded a Pujor gaan in Kolkata after 14 long years. He recorded his first Pujor Gaan under the baton of his legendary father, Kishore Kumar in 1973 and the songs ‘Jinisher Daam Berechhe’ and ‘Mone Mone Kotodin’ were a huge success.Amit Kumar also sang a few Pujor gaan for RD Burman and the two songs from the album ‘Pran To Mane Na Go’ and ‘Kotodin Aar E Bhabe Boshe Thaaki’ released in 1975 became huge hits. This is for the third time he collaborated with Shiladitya – Raj for a Pujor Gaan; their earlier albums being ‘Shudhu Tomay Dekhi’ (1999) and the immensely popular ‘Phele Asha Din’ (2012).last_img read more

leadership” Hahn saidYou may find this incredible but Igbo and Yoruba languages are widely spoken in the Caribbean Islands And the speakers are not Nigerians living in those countries Indigenes of the Caribbean Islands speak Igbo and Yoruba It might be different from the Yoruba or Igbo that many Nigerians speak today but a foremost entertainer and music maestro Tar Ukoh says many people in the area speak Igbo and Yoruba of the 13th century Till now he says the Yorubas still play and enjoy their traditional Yoruba songs while the Igbos feature their nmanwu agaba and ekpe masquerades Ukoh known in the entertainment world as Mambisa made this revelation while on a guided tour with a group of Cuban ladies mostly of Yoruba ancestry now in the country They are part of the Cuban troupe searching for the place their ancestors once lived and called their own before they were brutally uprooted by slave raiders and merchants and whisked to sugar plantations in the Caribbean Islands “This group you are seeing here consists of Yoruba ladies from Cuba They are here searching for their ancestral home They are asking Ile mi da (where is my home) And don’t forget that out there in the Caribbean there are countless Igbos too who still speak their language feature in agaba ekpe and nmanwu masquerades From those masquerades they fashioned out a brand of music they call Wawanco Their ancestors too were the exponents of the popular Calypso music which is an adulteration of Ka anyi soo nmanwu (let’s join the masquerade troupe) They also play another brand of music called Abakwua to remember Abata a point in Ogoja axis in Cross River through which slaves were taken Slaves who went through that route were then given numbers such as Abata 1 2… to identify them” Now Ukoh is demanding that those routes and other historical sites like the Long Juju of Arochukwu be revitalised He says if that is done it will boost historical tourism which can become an alternative source of revenue to oil He is therefore advising that Nigeria should take a cue from countries like Ghana and Senegal that are bountifully reaping from the industry adding that annually thousands of tourists stream into both countries to see the Elmina Caste and the House of Slaves on Goree Island respectively where slaves in the 18th century were hounded before their final shipment abroad Ukoh who holds citizenships of Cuba and Ethiopia says he is still regretting the alleged Nigeria’s rejection of United Nations Education and Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO)’s request that slave routes from Isikwuato Abriba Arochukwu to Opobo be revitalised to serve as a world heritage site “Some time ago UNESCO approached Nigeria wanting those routes along which slaves were taken to Opobo be revitalised as a UNESCO project but Nigeria turned down the request Countries like Ghana and Senegal then picked the initiative and now they are making fortune from the project That is what I’m appealing to Governor Theodore Orji of Abia State to act on If he could re-establish the Long juju of Arochukwu the Isikwuato – Abriba slave trade routes then he can collaborate with Akwa Ibom State to develop the Jaja of Opobo enclave” he said Ukoh who facilitated the coming of the Cuban delegation told Daily Sun that he was very excited at the collaboration Describing himself as a Nigerian cultural ambassador he said he takes much pleasure in marketing Nigeria and Africa to the entire world “I’m the facilitator and co-ordinator of the project I brought this cultural troupe to Nigeria I’m a citizen of Cuba by the way I have been working with Cuba for the past 30 years What you are seeing today is just an extension of the programme I have been doing in that country “The Cubans arrived here in August and featured in the Osun Osogbo Festival And since then they have been touring the country They will round off their tour after visiting 16 states” The essence of the tour he says “is to develop Nigerian-Cuba tie Their aim is to promote their Yoruba heritage in Cuba here in Nigeria”He expressed happiness that “the response we are getting is fantastic We go to the villages for them to see things for themselves What we are doing at the moment is part of the initiative to promote Nigerian – Cuban diplomatic relations” Ukoh a multi-linguist from Benue State says he prides himself as Nigerian Ethiopian and African cultural ambassador “I represent Ethiopia in Nigeria I’m a pan Africanist because I promote Ethiopian culture in Africa and they see me as their son and that is important to me In the same way I’m Nigeria’s cultural ambassador and I see myself as so That is what I do all over the world Nigeria gives me that job that recognition and that is why I’m bringing the Cubans to tour the country I do that without much help I don’t need any payment to do that; I see that as my duty” He said he works with the Federal Ministry of Culture and Tourism because “they recognise my job all over the world especially in Africa So when I bring in programmes they accept them and often we collaborate When they have programmes and want to reach out to those countries where they feel I have influence they always encourage me to have collaboration with them” He noted that it had become necessary for him to market culture because “culture is everything to me Without culture everything is lost Technology is culture; the food we eat is culture even understanding how to look after our environment is culture Therefore culture is important to our existence It is not all about singing and dancing; it is the totality of our existence” The Cuban troupe to Nigeria consists of a team leader Comrade Karina Palaciuos a manager and a television journalist said to be the best in Cuba (both of them males) and then seven women whose ages averaged 25 years The group has been around since August 24 2012 when this year’s edition of Osun Osogbo was held Guided by Ukoh the group has since been touring some states in the country interacting with the people and getting used to the Nigerian way of life The group called Obirin Bata (Women playing the Bata drum in Yoruba) was at the last Osun Osogbo Festival drumming and dancing wining and dining Looking at the women nothing suggests that they are Nigerians let alone Yoruba Most of them look alike except the troupe leader Comrade Palacious However in their midst is a Fulani lady whose look is totally Fulani All but Comrade Palacious speak Spanish; but they claim to speak Yoruba of the 13th century which might be lost to today’s speakers of the language “We are here in Nigeria at the instance of the Ministry of Culture of Cuba and Ministry of Culture Orientation and Tourism of Nigeria” says Comrade Palacious “We signed an agreement to develop cultural interaction We are bringing our culture back to our motherland Africa So we are back to our roots Our mission here is to visit different states and see as many places as possible “We are excited to be back to our roots We have been to Osun Osogbo Festival and participated in the international event We were at the Osun River; we shared with the people in all that they did In Cuba we observe the same tradition like the Osun Osogbo Our cultural troupe is called Obirin Bata which I’m told translates to women playing the drum “We are very excited to be here Let me tell you our country was once a colony of Spain When the Spanish arrived Cuba majority of the local Cubans had died and disappeared Then slaves from Africa started arriving most of them coming from the Yoruba speaking people of Nigeria That is why when you get to streets in Cuba you see Yoruba speaking people Now 500 years after we are back here “Indeed I like this cultural visit With the help of the Ministry of Culture of both countries I look forward to seeing that a cultural exchange programme between Cuba and Nigeria is implemented We would like to see Nigerians go to Cuba and have a rewarding experience just as we are having here” she added Source: Daily Sun I dearly hope so.

shared values that have made our countries great” This none-too-subtle promise to stand up to China’s authoritarianism is followed by a promise to uphold “freedom of navigation and over flight throughout the region especially in the South China Sea” The declaration marks a dramatic departure in the language of Indian diplomacy generally shy of such ideological messaging but also in attitudes to China It wasn’t too many months ago that New Delhi was reluctant even to conduct serious military-to-military exercises with Japan for fear of upsetting China The turning point in Modi’s generally Sinophile thinking may well have been the Chinese intrusion into Chumar back in September which took place while President Xi Jinping was visiting Delhi The action was a warning-growl coming

lingered The argument underlying India’s policy shift isn’t opaque Beijing India’s leadership points out doesn’t consult Delhi before sending its submarines to Sri Lanka or blasting roads through Pakistan-occupied Kashmir There’s no reason they have therefore concluded for India to be reticent about deepening relationships with China’s near-neighbours — with countries like Vietnam Japan South

grow its economic relationship with China but will at once participate in growing the strategic partnership to deter the new giant from using its military muscle This argument is in principle unexceptionable — but it doesn’t address the problem of intrusions across the Line of Actual Control or bring a border deal with China any closer Indeed there are even odds it could make both harder
