NASHVILLE Tenn – In a spacious recording studio

first_img NASHVILLE, Tenn. – In a spacious recording studio in Nashville, two singer-songwriters, Priscilla Renea and Jillian Jacqueline, were working through a song idea, trading suggestions for lyrics and melody on the theme of resurrection.“When you least expect it.,” Jacqueline started off. “Resurrection!” says Renea with a flourish. Shortly after, Mary J. Blige walked into the studio and the two women stopped singing. They were trying to come up with a song the Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul might want to record, but it wasn’t quite ready yet.“We were trying to get a head start on you,” Renea told Blige.The setting last week was the first all-female songwriting camp organized by the performing rights organization ASCAP under a new music industry diversity initiative called “She Is the Music,” started by Alicia Keys and other top female music executives.A report earlier this year from the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative analyzed women’s roles in popular music, including artists, songwriters and producers. The report found that women were underrepresented across the board. From 2012 to 2017, women comprised just 22 per cent of artists that appeared on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and just 12 per cent of songwriters. A mere 2 per cent of producers were female.The camp aims to change those stats. Some of the women involved were already established as artists themselves or hit songwriters, while others were still building their careers. The writers at the camp had songs recorded by Beyonce, Rihanna, Miranda Lambert, Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa, Pitbull, Carrie Underwood and Hillary Scott. Joining them were also female producers and female engineers, some of whom have worked with artists like Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez and Jason Derulo.“By putting this camp together and showing how successful it can be, we hope we can inspire others to do the same thing,” said Nicole George-Middleton, senior vice-president of membership for ASCAP.In Nashville, songwriting camps are commonplace, sometimes organized by a performing rights organization, or a publisher, or by an artist looking to co-write. This one was unique, bringing together writers and producers from all over the country who have backgrounds in R&B, pop, country, electronic, hip-hop and more. George-Middleton said they selected the women based on how they might work together and ASCAP wanted to have an artist like Blige that had a strong voice and a story to tell.“It means so much to me because these women are really incredible songwriters and they are excited to work with me,” Blige said.The Grammy-winning and Oscar-nominated singer said she was hoping to inspire the writers and producers to come up with ideas for her next record.“It’s important because we live in a male-dominated world and we work in a male-dominated business,” Blige said. “The world is hard on us. Men are hard on us. Women are hard on each other. So when you see a bunch of women who are confident enough to come together and embrace each other’s talent, this is like a blessing from God.”Blige, 47, sat down in the studio with the songwriters and started telling them about the thoughts and emotions she wanted to explore on her next record.“I feel boss, really boss,” she told the women. “Not because I am cocky and I think I’m fly, but why not, right? I earned it. I suffered through it. I suffered to get here. I won. I lost. I truly believe that I am somebody special.”Renea probably knows Blige better than most of the other participants, having co-written songs with her that ended up on previous albums.“She is able to articulate so well and be so vulnerable with the feelings that most people try to pretend like they don’t go through, but do it with such grace that people are inspired,” Renea said of Blige.After Blige’s visit, the women split into smaller groups to toss out ideas and lyrics, fragments and beats. They had two-and-a-half days to work, socialize and record with the hopes of crafting the next Mary J. Blige hit.Producers Sadie Currey and Ester Na, who work in Los Angeles as a producing team called WildCardz, picked up on little details that Blige mentioned about the music she was really into lately and the style of music she wanted to record. They’ve learned to be good listeners to help songwriters and artists create the sounds they hear in their heads.“This is our first camp outside of L.A. and it’s been great to just experiment and learn,” said Currey. “It’s been really great to meet the other two female producers here. That’s a lot of fun ’cause I feel like I don’t get to do that ’cause it’s usually guys. Sometimes you don’t connect with a guy the same way you do with a bunch of girls. We can all nerd out together. (Like), ‘what kind of plug-in do you use for this? How do you mix that?’ I haven’t really had that community of women to do that with.”Many of the women there understand the barriers they are up against in the music industry.“Even with all the hits that I have had, the credit goes to all the guys,” said Renea, who has co-written multi-platinum successes like Pitbull and Kesha’s “Timber” and “Worth It” by Fifth Harmony. “Until we have more women in leadership positions then the perspective will always be slanted.”Both Currey and Na were impressed that ASCAP has a female CEO and is actively trying to find ways to improve diversity.“The more people see women in these roles, the more girls are going to follow that path,” Currey said._____Follow Kristin M.

Jane Fonda is joining a group of Hollywood power players to host a fundraiser for Democratic presidential contender Steve Bullock. (Photo by Joel C Ryan/Invision/AP) WASHINGTON — Jane Fonda is joining a group of Hollywood power players to host a fundraiser for presidential candidate Steve Bullock on Thursday, a show of support that could lend credibility among Democratic donors to the little-known Montana governor.The Academy Award-winning actress, activist and fitness guru is among a handful of Los Angeles agents, producers and lawyers hosting the event at the home of model and professional golfer Anna Chervin and her talent-agent husband, Ted, according to an invitation obtained by The Associated Press.Bullock, a cowboy-boot-wearing executive from a rural state won by President Donald Trump, may seem like an unusual benefactor of campaign cash from members of the Hollywood elite often associated with far-left causes. But his success enacting some progressive priorities such as expanding Medicaid, combined with his distinction as the only White House contender to get reelected at the same time his state broke for Trump, has led some donors to take a closer look.“A progressive governor from a Trump state has a great story to tell,” said Rose Kapolczynski, a veteran Democratic strategist in California. As for Fonda, Kapolczynski says she “is a great person to land as a host because she is known by absolutely everyone in the donor community and has decades of credibility.”A Fonda representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment.The fundraiser comes as Bullock is in a tiff with the Democratic National Committee, which established polling and fundraising benchmarks to qualify for next week’s debates in Miami that Bullock didn’t reach after getting a late start with his campaign. Although Bullock’s campaign says he will qualify for the upcoming July debate in Detroit, subsequent ones will have an even higher requirement threshold, underscoring the necessity for Bullock to line up donor support.Fonda is not the only top celebrity or donor to show interest in Bullock.Jeff Bridges, the Academy Award-winning actor known for his role as “The Dude” in the cult classic “The Big Lebowski,” has donated to his campaign. Country musicians Lyle Lovett and Robert Earl Keen helped with a fundraiser in the past. And DreamWorks founder Jeffrey Katzenberg, a massive player in the Hollywood money game, cut a check to Bullock’s political action committee for $5,000 last year, Federal Election Commission records show.Bullock also had an event co-hosted for him last month by Democratic megadonor Steve Rattner, according to an event invitation obtained by the APThursday’s fundraiser is also co-hosted by talent agent Carter Cohn, TV producer Aaron Meyerson and “Empire” producer Matt Pyken.___Follow Slodysko on Twitter at: https://twitter.com/BrianSlodyskoBrian Slodysko, The Associated Presslast_img read more

Number of refugees filing for subsidiary protection on the rise

first_imgThe number of refugees filing for subsidiary protection in Cyprus continues to rise while the government calls on the EU to make sure that Turkey sticks to its part of the agreement to end irregular migration from its shores to EU countries for Cyprus too, the head of the immigration department Makis Polydorou said.In an event to mark the World Refugee Day organised by the Representation of the European Commission in Cyprus and the European Parliament Information Office in Cyprus, Polydorou said that an increasing tendency in the arrivals of refugees and immigrant is being recorded the last few years.According to Polydorou, Cyprus is no longer a transit country for refugees who arrive from the Middle East, but a final destination.So far this year, he said, 1,500 applications for subsidiary protection have been filed concerning 1,740 people. Subsidiary protection is an international protection for persons seeking asylum who do not qualify as refugees.The last three years there has been an increasing tendency as regards applications from refugees for subsidiary protection, Polydorou said. Last year a 30 per cent increase was recoded compared with 2015, he said, while the increasing tendency continues in 2017.He added that the majority of subsidiary protection applicants arrive on the island through the north and that the agreement Turkey signed last year with the EU – which provides for the former to prevent new sea or land routes for irregular migration from its territory to the EU – is not applicable for Cyprus, because Turkey refuses to cooperate.Under the agreement, the EU is to provide €3bn to Turkey to help it provide for refugees.“We are constantly asking for the agreement to be implemented. Cyprus is not the pariah of the EU,” Polydorou said. He added that the EU should back its member states that are more easily accessible to refugees.People smugglers, he said, promote Cyprus as a destination to the refugees, who are falsely being told that they can travel from the island anywhere in Europe. Smugglers, he said, profit greatly from this, as they charge up to €5,000 per head.For the majority of refugees arriving by boat through Turkey, he said, Cyprus is a final destination, as they have family on the island.Head of the Representation of the European Commission in Cyprus, George Markopouliotis, referred to the efforts of the Commission on the issue of refugees.To address the issue, he said, the EU requires a comprehensive policy on migration and asylum based on the principles of solidarity, mutual trust and equal sharing of responsibilities between member states.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

Panicos tells some stories in his book but leaves other untold

first_imgBy Stelios OrphanidesPanicos Demetriades (for those who don’t remember, he was the governor of the Central Bank of Cyprus from May 2012 until April 2014) published a book about his term which coincided with Cyprus’s largest ever banking and fiscal crisis.He recently made a comeback but relax, not as a central banker this time but as a book author. His book is called “A Diary of the Euro Crisis in Cyprus”.It already sparked a controversy in Cyprus mainly because of its unflattering remarks related to conversations with President Nicos Anastasiades who allegedly used colourful language, or the reference to the president’s relatives wiring funds from Cyprus Popular Bank, widely known as Laiki, days before the fateful Eurogroup meetings in March 2013.The book gives the reader an account of the events that led to the culmination of the banking crisis in 2013 but sheds no real light on what really happened in the weeks and months before the banking crisis, not because of the stories the disgraced University of Leicester professor is telling, but because of the stories he is not telling.For instance, his decision to resign after almost two years in office was because of the personal attacks he was exposed to, a rebellious board of directors, and uncooperative staff members at the central bank. Especially after everything he had done for the banking system. By the time he left office, it showed signs of stabilisation and the non-performing loans were beginning to be restructured which allowed the gradual lifting of capital controls, he says.But Panicos tells the reader little about his dealings with Alvarez & Marsal (A&M), the company with which he signed agreements with. He tells not a single word in his book about a contract awarded to the US firm which included a provision for a 0.1 per cent recapitalisation fee, applied also to the bail-in of depositors, against the advice of the central bank’s legal advisor. He offers no explanation for the January 2014 press reports that he signed the agreement with A&M on March 28, 2013 and backdated it March 23, two days before the Eurogroup decision which sealed the fate of Laiki and meant that depositors at Bank of Cyprus would have to recapitalise it. After all, the “restructuring consultants,” Panicos tells us, had “impeccable credentials”.By reading the former governor’s book, a naïve reader would assume that good old Panicos played an instrumental role in helping Cyprus introduce stricter anti-money laundering rules. But what he is not telling, is anything to do with his talks, which started days after his appointment, with the owners of FBME Bank, who sought to convert the licence of the FBME Bank Cyprus branch to a locally incorporated bank. He doesn’t say a word that press reports about his intention to initiate the procedure to make FBME Bank, the lender which a few months after his departure, US authorities branded as a financial institution of primary money laundering concern, caused a backlash in a number of European capitals and subsequently dramatically reduced the chances of Cyprus getting assistance for its banking sector.Panicos also tells us little about a probable conflict of interest when he visited Cyprus months before his appointment, to speak at an event at the Strovolos co-operative bank. It was then, he says, when he met communist President Demetris Christofias who delayed negotiations with the troika in order also to secure special treatment for the cooperative banking sector. It was in 2012, he said, that he first met Christofias but he tells us nothing about the rumours that started circulating months before that meeting that he would succeed Athanasios Orphanides. The author of this article first heard about his appointment from a group of Laiki bankers as early as December 2011.Panicos, the former central banker who boasts for being the saviour of the mismanaged and battered Cypriot banking system after doing whatever was in his power to give it the coup de grace, complains in his book that media had been hostile to him from the very beginning and that gossip columns exposed his “‘Bolshevik’ roots”.But he doesn’t say that that the gossip was triggered by the references to his biography in an interview to the communist newspaper Haravgi. The interview published in 2011 was how he effectively declared his interest for the job. It included a reference to his “Bolshevik” grandfather, and thanks to his ideology he ultimately got the job.Panicos’s book tells a lot but it is economical with the truth. Like a true Bolshevik, Panicos, who once proposed that Germany should ditch the euro to save the euro area, did what former Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev advised. Brezhnev once said that “there is nothing more practical than a convenient theory”. Hence, the professor selected convenient parts of the truth to construct upon them a complex structure of lies or half-truths.His book costs £23.99 (€27) and can be bought online. If you can afford it and have spare space on your bookshelf, it can offer you an amusing distraction from reality.You May LikeLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

First liturgy in sign language to be performed in Nicosia church

first_imgA liturgy is to be performed next week in sign language for the first time ever in Cyprus, aiming to include the deaf in the holy mysteries of the Greek Orthodox Church.A theologian will travel from Greece at the invitation of the Bishopric of Tamasos and Orinis to simultaneously interpret the liturgy into sign language for the deaf people who will attend. The service will take place on Sunday, November 19 at the church of Ayios Ioannis Chrysostomos in Lakatamia, in the Nicosia district.According to the church’s priest Father Kyriacos Kasparis, initially the bishopric will bring the theologian over once per month, increase to once per fortnight and on major religious holidays depending on his schedule.“This arrangement is aimed at satisfying the needs of the deaf faithful who have never had the opportunity to follow a liturgy and have someone explain to them the deeper meanings in their own language,” Father Kyriacos told the Cyprus Mail.This will be the first time, he said, that deaf people will have the opportunity to participate more actively in divine liturgies.He added that the theologian will stand on a podium to be visible to as many people as possible, and will simultaneously interpret in sign language.“He will not translate but interpret in sign language the theological meaning of the liturgy and sermon,” Father Kyriacos said. After the liturgy, the deaf will be offered breakfast in the church hall and have the opportunity to ask questions through the theologian about everything they would like to know about faith.“All that we are supposed to know about our faith, they will learn for the first time,” Father Kyriacos said.He added that around 17 people have expressed interest in attending so far, but that he expects that the number will increase. “We have already invited several people and informed deaf organisations and we have also made announcements in the media,” he said.At the same time, the bishopric has invited a Cypriot woman who is an expert in sign language to learn the sermon and liturgy interpretations of the Greek theologian so that she can eventually take in his place when he is not able to travel to Cyprus.If all goes well, the next step, he said, will be a Sunday school for deaf children.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
