The shape-note music notes are printed in special shapes. Sacred Harp has four shapes and each shape is connected to a certain syllable, fa-sol-la or mi.” With those four notes, singers are able to cover the full musical scale and the notes are sung and then the poetry, or the words.Sundberg said visitors are always welcome and are invited to sit and listen or sing along. Sacred Harp singers sing with enthusiasm and from the heart and it’s loud. If you can hear your neighbor singing, then you aren’t singing loud enough.Sacred Harp music is not sung for an audience; it’s sung for the singers’ own enjoyment and for inspiration.“Sacred Harp is the kind of music that you like or don’t like. If you like it, it gets in your heart and soul and it will stay there.”Sacred Harp is in Sundberg’s heart and he enjoys singing the four-note music and always welcomes those who want to come and listen or join in with their harps. Published 9:20 pm Wednesday, February 19, 2020 You Might Like Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By The Penny Hoarder Book Nook to reopen The 11th Annual Troy All-Day Sacred Harp Sing will be Saturday at the Pioneer Museum of Alabama.The sing will be from 9:30 a.m. until around 2:30 p.m. and all singers are invited as well as those who just want to sit and listen to the old-time music.The annual Sacred Harp Sing is organized by Ken Sundberg of Troy, who is an advocate for Sacred Harp singing and is also a “harp.” “We don’t have a time that is designated for instruction on Sacred Harp music and how it is sung, but there is usually someone who will give a quick lesson,” Sundberg said. “We all have favorite songs. Songs that we like to lead and those we like to sing.”For Sundberg, “The Loft That is Higher Than I” is a favorite.“And, ‘On Jordan’s Stormy Banks’ is another favorite. It’s in ‘The Sacred Harp Blue Book five times, each with a different melody,” Sundberg said. “On Saturday, we’ll sing everybody’s favorites and we invite visitors. We have young people who sing and encourage young people to come and learn more about Sacred Harp music. Alabama is rich in the tradition of Sacred Harp music. You don’t have to know anything about music to sing Sacred Harp. Just open your mouth and sing.” Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingWomen Only: Stretch This Muscle to Stop Bladder Leakage (Watch)Patriot Health ZoneHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Children’s Minister urged to intervene to save ParentStop

first_imgA meeting will be held today to call on the Children’s Minister Katherine Zappone to intervene and save ParentStop from closure.The Donegal-based ParentStop organisation is threatening closure if funding sources are not found to sustain the project. ParentStop, which was established 14 years ago, provides a wide range of services including co-parenting support, and providing support with financial, health and bullying issues.Donegal TD Pat the Cope Gallagher is leading last-ditch efforts to save the service. He has confirmed a meeting with the Minister for Children this Tuesday afternoon to highlight the critical importance of ParentStop. “Unless the Government intervene and commit funding then Parentstop will close its services before the end of 2019,” added Pat the CopePat the Cope said that funding to the tune of €60 million has been left unspent within the Department, and he will put forward the case that priority should be given to funding projects such as ParentStop.“This organisation has a proven record in delivering services that otherwise would not be available, and hundreds avail of these support and counselling services each year,” stated Pat the Cope.“The Government and Minister must deliver for Donegal, it is imperative that funding is made available for ParentStop. It is essential also that certainty is restored to these services as so many people depend on ParentStop. It is self evident that the money is there to fund ParentStop, what is lacking is the political will to do so,” concluded Pat the Cope Children’s Minister urged to intervene to save ParentStop was last modified: November 26th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Falcons become butt of the joke after Super Bowl collapse

first_imgJustin Hardy #16, and Matt Ryan #2 celebrate with Tevin Coleman #26 of the Atlanta Falcons after he scored a touchdown on a 82 yard interception against the New England Patriots during Super Bowl 51 at NRG Stadium on February 5, 2017 in Houston, Texas. / AFP PHOTO / Timothy A. CLARYFLOWERY BRANCH, Georgia — Hey, did you hear the one about Choking Awareness Day?It’s held on 3-28.ADVERTISEMENT Atlanta coach Dan Quinn has pushed his team to look forward, not backward.He keeps insisting there will be no hangover from the devastating loss.“When we came back, I knew there was going to be questions like, ‘OK, how much more work do we have to do to talk about last year?’” Quinn said. “I got my answer pretty early in training camp when I saw us go for it in the biggest way.”But he understands that plenty of Atlanta fans are a bit sensitive to all the barbs.“I love our fans,” Quinn said. “For them to get (ticked off) about it, that’s cool with me.”That means you, Peyton Manning, who got in on the act at the ESPY Awards.“I believe in the Falcons. I believe in (MVP quarterback) Matt Ryan and Dan Quinn, and I know in my heart the Falcons will be back,” the former NFL great said, setting up his zinger. “I wanted the Falcons to hear that from me now, at the beginning of the show, because they’re going to stop paying attention three-quarters of the way in.”Even two other NFC South rivals, teams the Falcons will face twice this season, couldn’t resist the chance to pile on.On March 28 — yep, 3-28 — the Carolina Panthers tweeted a picture of four players. But only two were tagged: No. 3 (Derek Anderson) and No. 28 (Johnathan Stewart). Clearly, that was no coincidence, which became apparent when the tweet was quietly deleted a few hours later.A couple of months later, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sent out a seemingly innocuous tweet pitching their team-logo fidget spinners. When the Falcons’ account chimed in with a GIF of cornerback Desmond Trufant asking if the Bucs were “nervous about something,” the Bucs quickly responded by tweeting a picture of cornerback Vernon Hargreaves (No. 28) celebrating with quarterback Jameis Winston (No. 3). View comments Lots and lots of jokes.Even now, as Atlanta prepares to open the season Sunday with a road game against the Chicago Bears, there’s no sign of the jabs letting up.Just last weekend, when Texas A&M squandered a 34-point lead in the second half and lost 45-44 to UCLA, a Lou Holtz parody account on Twitter claimed the Aggies were unveiling a new logo. Naturally, it was the Falcons’ distinctive emblem.In New Orleans, home of the Falcons’ biggest rival, the Dirty Coast shop on Magazine Street has been offering T-shirts with a scoreboard-like design “28-3, 3rd, 2:12” — when Atlanta was still up by 25. As if that wasn’t enough to bring a smile to Saints’ fans, the store also has been raising money to put up a billboard with the same design outside Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the Falcons’ new stadium.“I don’t pay attention to that,” Atlanta linebacker Deion Jones said with a shrug. “It happened. We can’t go back and change it. So, I mean, you lick your wounds a little bit, then you have to get on with your life.”ADVERTISEMENT E.T. returns to earth, reunites with grown-up Elliott in new ad  Isaiah Thomas on trade to Cavaliers: ‘It still hurts’ MOST READ UPLB exempted from SEA Games class suspension WATCH: Streetboys show off slick dance moves in Vhong Navarro’s wedding LATEST STORIES Read Next LOOK: Venues for 2019 SEA Games Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Tampa Bay coach Dirk Koetter, a former Falcons’ offensive coordinator, wound up apologizing for that little back-and-forth.No need, said Falcons safety Ricardo Allen.This team can take it.“It does nothing for us,” he said Wednesday. “This world is so lost in staying in the past… Yes, we lost that game. They won that game. That’s last year. This is a new year. This team, we have the mindset of next-play mentality.“If you have a bad play, OK, next play. They’re going to make plays. Bad game? Next game.”Ryan, in a way, addressed the issue head-on by taking part in a Gatorade television commercial that featured, among others, Michael Jordan and Serena Williams talking about their biggest disappointments. Titled “The Secret to Victory,” it ends with a recreation of the Falcons quarterback dejectedly leaving the field after the Super Bowl, a voiceover describing his “utter disbelief,” before he stares into the camera and says one word.Defeat.Then it shows Ryan getting back to work, throwing one pass after another on the practice field, ending with the mantra, “Make Defeat Your Fuel.”“It’s about moving forward,” Ryan said. “To me, that’s what made sense. You learn from all these things throughout your life. Different things happen to you along the way. You learn from them and try to use them as motivation.”And the jokes? Is he using those as motivation? Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Catriona Gray spends Thanksgiving by preparing meals for people with illnesses “No,” Ryan shot back, managing a weak smile. “I don’t pay much attention to it.” SEA Games in Calabarzon safe, secure – Solcom chief Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles01:57Taiwan bridge collapses, at least 14 injured; rescuers fear six trapped00:50Trending Articles01:37Protesters burn down Iran consulate in Najaf01:47Panelo casts doubts on Robredo’s drug war ‘discoveries’01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games Of course, that punch line references the score late in the third quarter of last season’s Super Bowl, when it looked as though the Atlanta Falcons would finally win their first championship.Then, as they remember all too painfully in these parts, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots scored 31 consecutive points to pull off the greatest comeback in the title game’s 51-year history, winning 34-28 in overtime.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutBrady collected his fifth ring.The Falcons became the butt of the joke.

a month ago​Man Utd could take pay cut from Adidas over Champions League no-show

first_img​Man Utd could take pay cut from Adidas over Champions League no-showby Ian Ferrisa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveManchester United stand to lose out on significant sponsorship revenue from Adidas should they fail to qualify for the Uefa Champions League this season, claims the Manchester Evening News (MEN), reports, www.sportspromedia.com/.According to the Manchester daily, there is a clause in Adidas’ contract with United that states that if the club fail to secure a place in European club soccer’s elite tournament for two consecutive seasons the sportswear brand reduces its payment by 30 per cent.United’s deal with Adidas was signed back in 2015 and brings in UK£75 million (US$91.9 million) per season. A 30 per cent reduction on that figure would be UK£55.2 million (US$68.4 million). Whilst still a substantial amount, that would drop the club behind Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea in terms of annual revenue from their kit deal.The contract with Adidas is one of the club’s main sources of revenue alongside their principal partnership with Chevrolet, worth UK£64 million (US$80 million) per season, and their sleeve sponsorship with Kohler, which club sources claim is worth UK£20 million (US$27.5 million) per season.

Heritage status doesnt mean Glen Abbey cant be built overexpert

first_imgTORONTO – An Ontario town voted this week to designate one of Canada’s most famous golf courses a heritage site, but one expert says the status doesn’t necessarily protect Glen Abbey’s greens from being turned into a housing development.Paul Dilse, a heritage planning consultant in Toronto, says Oakville, Ont., town council’s vote of intent to designate the Glen Abbey Golf Club a heritage zone means that it is immediately protected under the Ontario Heritage Act.The designation, which was voted on Monday night, comes one month before the town council is set to decide whether it will approve or block a housing development that Glen Abbey’s owner, ClubLink, has planned for the course.ClubLink has said it wants to turn the course into a mix of 3,200 residential units, office and retail space — a plan that has drawn considerable opposition from locals who say Glen Abbey is worthy of preservation.The course was designed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus and opened 40 years ago. It has hosted the Canadian Open 29 times and is slated to host it again next year. The Canadian Golf Museum and Hall of Fame, and Golf Canada offices are also housed on the site.But despite the heritage status now granted to the prestigious course, Dilse said the area could still be developed.ClubLink still has 30 days to appeal the heritage designation to the Conservation Review Board, he explained.Even if ClubLink loses its appeal, its development could still proceed, depending on what guidelines Oakville decides to introduce to preserve the site’s heritage. Those guidelines could theoretically be as lenient as requiring parts of the golf course to exist alongside the new housing development, he said.A spokeswoman with Ontario’s Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport said any appeal by ClubLink on the heritage designation will trigger a hearing, the result of which will be sent to Oakville’s town council. Denise Balfour said, however, that whatever the appeal hearing’s findings, “the final decision will ultimately be made by the local council.”Oakville’s mayor noted that the heritage designation and ClubLink’s development proposal are being treated as two separate issues by the town, despite the fact that one will affect the other in some way.“It’s not clear yet how the one could influence the other, it’s too soon to say,” said Burton, who acknowledged that the heritage designation doesn’t mean the ClubLink’s development can’t go ahead.“We have to wait for the planning staff’s report in September on whether or not they recommend (ClubLink’s development) application.”Oakville’s efforts to establish the course as a heritage zone have been in the works for eight years now and were recently expedited, while ClubLink’s proposal for the development came in 2015, Burton said.Burton said that he’s heard from people who are both for and against the development proposal, but said that he’s seen more people against the development than people who are in favour of it.ClubLink’s vice president Robert Visentin came out against the heritage designation, calling it a “blunt tool” that was being used to “block our proposed real estate redevelopment.”Visentin went on to call it a “troubling precedent” for the business of golf in Canada, and said the company will be reviewing its options before taking its next step.One coalition of Oakville residents, called the Save Glen Abbey Coalition, said it has over 7,000 signatures of residents who are opposed to the course being destroyed, and runs with the slogan “If Glen Abbey isn’t heritage then what is?”last_img read more

Big Ten play becoming big pain for struggling Buckeyes

The Big Ten has been a big pain for the Ohio State women’s basketball team this season.Aside from an early loss to Duke, the Buckeyes cruised through their nonconference schedule. However, they have struggled to find their game against teams who know their style of play.“There’s a difference between nonconference play and conference play,” coach Jim Foster said. “Nonconference play … you play a team twice, home and away, or you play them once. In terms of conference games, you can have a 10 to 12 game resume against your opponents depending on upper-classmen.”Before they began their conference schedule, the Buckeyes averaged 86.3 points per game. Against conference opponents, they have only averaged 70.1.That 16-point difference would be big for any team, but OSU is especially affected because they have allowed nearly the same amount of points per game.Foster has said that the team has the skills to win the close games and has won many of them over the last five years, but now people are noticing because “maybe we’re just in more of them.”Big Ten play has already handed OSU two losses and three games decided by three points or fewer in just ten conference games. In contrast, OSU had one loss and only one game decided by 10 points or less in nonconference play.The two losses from the Big Ten came against Purdue and Indiana in away games with both teams being unranked and struggling to maintain winning records.“Coaches refer to [a season] as three seasons,” Foster said, referring to out-of-conference schedule, conference schedule and the postseason. “A lot of times you’re just happy to get out of the conference season, let alone a conference that plays 18 games. There are some conferences around that play each other once.”Not only have the Buckeyes shot worse when playing a conference opponent, by about 10 percent, but they allow their opponents to shoot better from the floor as well.    OSU has a smaller advantage in rebounds as well — it is cut in half against conference opponents. The last week has been especially brutal for OSU as its two conference losses have occurred within this span. However, center Jantel Lavender doesn’t feel that the team is playing to its potential.“Close games are games that we make close games, because I think that we can beat teams by way more points than we’ve been beating them,” Lavender said. Foster believes this inconsistency in play is due to the youth of the team. The Buckeyes only have four seniors, none of which are starters, although three of the four see the court each game.With games still remaining against a surging Purdue team and a talented Michigan State team, both at home, the season could head in either direction for the Buckeyes depending on their resiliency. read more
