Heralded as one of the best Rolling Stones albums, let alone one of the great rock n’ roll albums of all time, Exile On Main Street will get a new life as the focus of a new biopic film. Titled Exile on Main Street: A Season in Hell With the Rolling Stones, the band recorded the album in a small bunker-like studio before its big release in 1972.The film will be directed by Andy Goddard, who has worked on Downton Abbey, and the storyline will largely follow Robert Greenfield’s 2008 book of the same title. Rights to the book were purchased by Virgin in 2012, and studios are casting the roles of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards right now.While Exile probably won’t be released until 2017, it’s interesting to think about how such an iconic album was created. With tracks like “Sweet Virginia,” “Tumblin’ Dice,” “Lovin’ Cup” and more, there’s no shortage of great music to choose from for the Exile On Main Street film.[H/T Deadline]

Tinubu at 60 Newly-elected 2nd vice President of Nigeria Archery Federation, Mike Egbayelo, has pledged his commitment to ensuring Nigeria becomes a force in the sport in Africa, while also aiming for the country to rub shoulders with the best in the world by way of debuting at the 2024 Olympics Olympics in Paris, France. Egbayelo, who defeated incumbent Ayo Phillips to also emerge as the South West representative on the board in Wednesday’s poll in Abuja, said various plans have been tailored for the phenomenal rise of the sport in Nigeria. He stated: “Last year, we launched the Strategic Action Plan for Archery in Lagos in line with the THEMES agenda of Governor Babajide Olusola Sanwo-Olu to make the sports a driving force of development and empowerment of the grassroots and there has been rise in the popularity and growth of the sport. “As it stands, Archery is the fastest growing sport in Lagos with the establishment of 25 clubs in just one year. “The same template would be used to develop the sport across Nigeria and we are sure that it will help us achieve our ultimate goal, which is to be a leading force in Africa and also to compete with the best at major international tournaments, particularly at the 2024 Olympics.” As at the start of March, there are 33 more places to be filled for Archery at the forthcoming Tokyo 2020 Olympics, but Egbayelo, the Vice Chairman of Lagos Archery, said it would be wise to plan for the one in four year’s time. Archery is also a Paralympics sport and Egbayelo pledged that the physically-challenged athletes won’t be left out of the development programme.Tags: 2024 OlympicsAyo PhillipsBabajide Sanwo-OluLagos StateMike EgbayaloNigeria Archery FederationTHEMES
THE Windies have won their first Test match in 17 years against England, in England, but one Cricket West Indies (CWI) director is particularly concerned about the use of the side’s specialist spinner.Anand Sanasie, secretary of the Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) and CWI director for Guyana questioned the use of the Berbician Devendra Bishoo in the second Test which the West Indies won yesterday by five wickets.Speaking exclusively to Chronicle Sport yesterday, the CWI director said, “I’m worried that you play a specialist spinner and he doesn’t bowl as much as he is supposed to.”“I don’t know if he is carrying an injury or something but that should be the only thing that keeps him from bowling a full complement of overs for the Test match,” he said.West Indies captain Jason Holder’s use of Bishoo came into question by television commentators after the leg-break bowler only got the nod for six overs in the first innings and 25 in the second – a combined total of 31 for the entire second Test.The use of the 31-year-old was questioned by fans and analysts on social media with many not able to understand his underutilisation.Sanasie, however, was quick to point out that there were a host of positives out of the win, saying that the victory represented a rebirth of the Maroon side.“It’s a rebuilding process, it’s a bright young team and it can only move to better things from here. I hope when they move to Lord’s they can do the same,” Sanasie said.“As a director, it’s been tough but I think we are turning the corner with these kind of performances. I always say that as a director of the WICB and secretary of the Guyana Cricket Board that you have to win on the field of play and once you can do that then something good is happening.”
SANTA CLARA — It’s far too early to predict a 49ers record — OK, 9-7 — just as it is far too fetched to read into Wednesday’s release of their schedule. Let’s do it anyway and jump to these 10 conclusions:1. First-half flip. Five road trips in their first eight games should not seem inviting. Must we remind you the 49ers’ record at the halfway point of Kyle Shanahan’s previous two seasons as coach: 0-8 and 1-7. We’ll see if the 49ers have the road chops to get it done right away with …
Bees stabilize their flight in windy conditions by extending their hind legs. Even though this costs 30% more energy and produces more drag, it provides stabilization against turbulence by increasing their moment of inertia (i.e., their resistance to being flipped over). A team of scientists videotaped the insects flying when blasted by powerful bursts of air, Science Daily reported. “In every case, the bees displayed a side-to-side rolling motion at high flight speeds, negotiating the turbulence by extending their rear legs while in flight.” They only studied ten species of bees. The team thinks this may be a universal skill among other members of their class Hymenoptera (bees, wasps, ants, and sawflies), but are not sure. There was no mention of evolution in the article, except that one of the scientists is a Harvard evolutionary biologist who said, “we know remarkably little about how animals navigate windy conditions and unpredictable airflows.”Who taught these bees about physics and aerodynamics? Did they learn it in Bee’s Knees Flight School? Did a lucky one figure it out and share the idea with its fellow aces (Lamarckism)? Did a lucky mutation arise, after trillions of bees fell dead from gusts of wind (neo-Darwinism)? Did the right engineering solution just emerge (naive Darwinism)? Those ideas don’t fly, even in hot air.(Visited 12 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
