Mom: Teen Hoops Star Has On-Court 'Alter Ego'
(6 Nov 2017) HE'S ONE OF THE NATION'S TOP EIGHTH-GRADE BASKETBALL PROSPECTS, BUT AT HOME ... SOUNDBITE: (English) Edith Bates, Emoni's Mother: "Emoni Bates is just my son to me." HE'S A SOFT-SPOKEN 13-YEAR-OLD WHO LIKES TO SPEND TIME WITH HIS FAMILY. TO OTHERS, HE'S A TOUGH-MINDED, AGGRESSIVE PLAYER UNAFRAID TO TANGLE WITH AN OPPONENT. SOUNDBITE: (English) Edith Bates, Emoni's Mother: "It's his alter ego when he's on the court." THAT ALTER EGO WAS ON FULL DISPLAY DURING A RECENT GAME ... WHEN EMONI'S (uh-MON'-eez) TEAM OF TALENTED MIDDLE SCHOOLERS, LOOKING FOR BETTER COMPETITION, WENT UP AGAINST HIGH-SCHOOL PLAYERS … GETTING INTO AN ALTERCATION WITH AN OPPONENT EMONI SAYS DISRESPECTED HIM. SOUNDBITE: (English) Emoni Bates, Star Basketball Player: ++partially covered with b-roll++ "During the game, he kept messing with me, talking to me. I was controlling it at first, and then he had said something to me again, so that led to me pushing him. So, that's what happened. I'm not the type of person to lay back when people are talking to me disrespectfully." EDITH BATES IS URGING PATIENCE AMONG THOSE KEEPING AN EYE ON HER SON. SOUNDBITE: (English) Edith Bates, Emoni's Mother: ++partially covered with b-roll++ "I feel like he has the world on his shoulders, and he's handling it very well. But I want them to see him as an adolescent who is growing and developing." BEING THE CENTER OF ATTENTION IS NOTHING NEW FOR EMONI … WHO ALREADY HAS DRAWN INTEREST FROM A NUMBER OF COLLEGE PROGRAMS, INCLUDING DEPAUL, WHICH OFFERED HIM A SCHOLARSHIP. SOUNDBITE: (English) Emoni Bates, Star Basketball Player: "I was excited, because it was my first offer, but there's plenty more to come." BEFORE HE CAN EVEN THINK ABOUT COLLEGE, THOUGH, EMONI NEEDS TO PICK A HIGH SCHOOL. JESSE DAVIS, COACH OF NEARBY LINCOLN HIGH AND A LONGTIME FAMILY FRIEND, SAYS EMONI COULD GO PRETTY MUCH ANYWHERE HE WANTS. SOUNDBITE: (English) Jesse Davis, Family Friend: ++partially covered with b-roll++ "He's 6-7, long wingspan, can shoot the ball, dribble it. I mean, it's just expected. He's a great basketball player at his age right now. … Any coach in the country would want him to play for him." REGARDLESS OF WHERE THEIR SON GOES TO SCHOOL NEXT YEAR, BATES SAYS SHE AND HER HUSBAND, E.J., WILL CONTINUE TO WORK TO KEEP EMONI HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. SOUNDBITE: (English) Edith Bates, Emoni's Mother: ++fully covered with b-roll++ "I know sometimes basketball tends to pull him away, but I always pull him back in. And that's his reality check. That's how we handle that _ keeping him grounded at home, helping him to make the best decisions dealing with the outside." ONE OF THE WAYS EMONI AVOIDS DISTRACTIONS IS BY FOCUSING ON IMPROVING HIS GAME AND HIS BODY. AND NOT CARRYING THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD ON HIS SHOULDERS.

'13 Reasons Why' cast pick fave Selena Gomez songs
(12 Apr 2017) '13 REASONS WHY' CAST PICK FAVE SELENA GOMEZ SONGS Multi-talented singer and actress Selena Gomez went behind the camera as executive producer of the new Netflix show "13 Reasons Why." At the series' recent Los Angeles premiere, the cast weighed in on their favorite songs from their chart-topping boss. It was an easy choice for "13 Reasons" star Dylan Minnette. "Do I have a favorite song? Oh, oh, oh, 'Me and the Rhythm' is hands down the best Selena song. So good," he said. Actor Devin Druid said the song Gomez recorded for the show's soundtrack was his fave. "My favorite Selena song? Oh, well the acoustic version of 'Kill Em With Kindness' just came out on the '13 Reasons Why' soundtrack. So good! It's so good! I'm kind of in love with 'Perfect.' It's one of my favorites, that song," he said. Justin Prentice admitted that there was one song in particular that stuck in his head through his entire audition process. "'I Love You Like a Love Song Baby' - that's my go-to. It's really funny because through the entire audition process, I don't know why, this song didn't come on the radio through the process, but it was in my head for, like, two months - just that song on repeat. So that one. It's a catchy song," said Prentice. Brandon Flynn picked Gomez' most recent collaboration with Kygo, titled "It Ain't Me." "Oh God, the name is escaping me, but the new one with Kygo is, like, the best one ever! I can't stop listening to it," said Flynn. Tommy Dorfman said the lyrics on the track "Sober" resonated for him. "She has this song called 'Sober' that I really love. Yeah, it's off the 'Revival' album. It's pretty, like, low-key. I don't think it was a single, but it's probably my favorite song," he said. "It's just really beautiful. Yeah, the lyrics I connect to." Derek Luke admitted he didn't know any of Gomez' music, but his nieces and nephews certainly do. "No, I have not, but I have 15 nieces and nephews that make sure I know who is current," he said. "My nieces, they love her. Even my older friends love Selena, you know, asking who, how is she? And she's a great businesswoman." "13 Reasons Why" is now streaming on Netflix.

Loretta Lynn returns after stroke to honor Alan Jackson at Country Music Hall of Fame induction
(23 Oct 2017) LORETTA LYNN RETURNS AFTER STROKE TO HONOR ALAN JACKSON AT COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME INDUCTION Country icon Loretta Lynn returned to the Country Music Hall of Fame for the first time since she suffered a stroke in May, to formally induct Alan Jackson, Sunday (22 OCT. 2017). Jackson joined late guitarist and singer Jerry Reed and songwriter Don Schlitz to become the newest members of the Country Music Hall of Fame during the ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee. Lynn, who cancelled her tour dates this year to recover, said Jackson was the only person that could make her leave her house. She recalled meeting Jackson when he was a nervous young artist decades ago and knowing then that he would "be one of the greatest singers in country music." "He hadn't let me down," said Lynn, who is also a member of the Hall of Fame. The 59-year-old Jackson is one of country music's most successful solo artists, having sold nearly 45 million albums in the United States and had 26 singles reach the top of the Billboard country charts. Many of his hits became instant classics, from the bar-room staple "Chattahoochee" to the somber "Where Were You (When the World Stopped Turning)" written after Sept. 11, 2001. Reed, who died at age 71 in 2008, was first known as an in demand studio musician with a unique finger picking style on the guitar. He played for and wrote songs for stars like Elvis Presley and Porter Wagoner. In later years, he started appearing in TV and movies, most notably playing Burt Reynolds' sidekick in "Smokey and the Bandit." He also sang many of the songs on the soundtrack, including "East Bound and Down." His daughters, Seidina Hubbard and Lottie Zavala, accepted the honor on his behalf. Schlitz, 65, from Durham, North Carolina, had his first songwriting hit in 1978 when Kenny Rogers recorded his song "The Gambler," which became Rogers' signature song throughout his career. Songs he helped write include "On the Other Hand" and "Forever and Ever, Amen," both sung by Randy Travis. Aloe Blacc and Vince Gill sang a duet version of "The Gambler" at the ceremony, while singers Charlie Worsham and Mary Chapin Carpenter also performed his songs in his honor.

Theatergoers are 'speechless' after attending 'Hamilton' debut in London, includes video of London E
(6 Dec 2017) 'HAMILTON' DEBUTS IN LONDON TO 'SPEECHLESS' CROWD The smash musical "Hamilton" has finally jumped the pond to London. The show, about the life of American founding father Alexander Hamilton, debuted its first preview show Wednesday (6 DEC. 2017) on London's West End at the Victoria Palace theatre. Created by Lin-Manuel Miranda, the score is largely hip-hop music. "Hamilton" won 11 Tony Awards in 2016 including Best Musical. From the reaction of people leaving Wednesday's (6 DEC. 2017) show, the accolades now make sense. "I'm literally speechless. Had me shaking like from the first second. I can't. I can't even put it into words if I'm honest with you," said 17-year-old Emel Kucuk as she left the venue. "For a long time people have waited for it to come over here, listened to the soundtrack and stuff," said Chris Swan, 27. "I'm speechless. You just can't quite describe what it is. Everything is just perfect. It's just amazing." One attendee, 54-year-old Nick Ayer, said although he was impressed with what he saw, the original American version was better. "It was just an amazing production, amazingly written. The set was fantastic. Although it was actually better in America." Also spotted leaving the show, politician and former MP turned London Evening Standard editor, George Osbourne.

The Doors celebrate 50th anniversary with a special performance
(5 Jan 2017) THE DOORS CELEBRATE 50TH ANNIVERSARY WITH SPECIAL PERFORMANCE Iconic 1960s rock band The Doors came together for a special honor and performance 50 years after releasing their self-titled debut album. Surviving members John Densmore and Robby Krieger joined hundreds of fans Wednesday (4 JAN. 2017) to celebrate January 4 being proclaimed "Day Of The Doors" in Los Angeles. The event took place in Los Angeles' Venice neighborhood, where the band was formed. "Well, it's 50 years of The Doors. We started right here in Venice and we're ending up right here in Venice too so it's all a cycle, you know?" said guitarist Robby Krieger. "The ocean is just right out there and that's where Jim got the idea to write the song 'Moonlight Drive.' So then we went to Hollywood and made it, but our roots are here," added drummer John Densmore. The group, known for hits such as "Light My Fire" and "Riders on the Storm," performed "L.A. Woman" for the crowd. Many fans waited hours in the rain to see the them. "Even though Robby and I sometimes haven't played for years, for me anyway, a couple bars and I'm back. When you do the songs for many, many years over a lifetime they're in your blood and it only takes a second to chase down the magic," said Densmore. Jim Morrison, the band's lead singer and songwriter, died in 1971 at age 27. "I have no idea," said Krieger of Morrison's reaction to the honor. "You know you cannot say what Jim would have done or said because he always would do something different, but I bet you he would've been here and he would've dug it and I think he would've been proud." "I'm sure Ray would've loved it. He was always working the band and this is great," Densmore said. In 2013, keyboardist Ray Manzarek died of bile duct cancer in Rosenheim, Germany. He was 74. As for inspiration, Krieger said he still looks to the oldies. "Well, I listen to '60s music a lot, you know. You know I always try to find something good in today's music and have been failing miserably lately … Yeah, there's always bright spots, but as far as being you know a whole era of music, I am waiting for the next one, something different," he said. While Densmore finds his close to home. "I don't have my finger on the pulse of music. I read a lot and what really inspires me are my grandkids," he said.

Ice Cube gets a Hollywood Walk of Fame star with support from Dr. Dre
(12 Jun 2017) ICE CUBE GETS HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME STAR WITH SUPPORT FROM DR. DRE It was more than just a good day for Ice Cube in Los Angeles on Monday (12 June) as the rapper-turned-actor got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. "Man, I'm so honored to be here. You know, it's a great day," Cube told the crowd, which included his former NWA bandmates Dr. Dre, DJ Yella and MC Ren. Cube, born O'Shea Jackson, included his parents in a long line of thank-yous he delivered while accepting the 2,614th star on the Walk of Fame. "My mother and my father – Doris Jackson, Hosea Jackson. Thank you, mama, for always supporting whatever I wanted to do – whether you was with it or not. You said as long as it kept you out the street, you can do it. Thank you to my father for always being there. A lot of guys don't have they fathers around. And if you want to make a man like this, stay around your son, stay around your kids," he said. On hand to support the 47-year-old entertainer: comedian and actor Martin Lawrence, producer and entrepreneur Russell Simmons, director John Singleton, and more. Music industry titan Dr. Dre made a rare public appearance. "Y'all got to give it up for Dr. Dre. Because we all wouldn't be here without the incredible, incredible - man. Boy, your family tree is -- whew! I love you, Dre," Cube said. "Thank you for letting me hang around you, man. A 15-year-old kid ditching school to hang out around with Dr. Dre." Rapper WC called the honor "long overdue" for Cube, who is promoting a 25th anniversary re-release of his second solo album, "Death Certificate." "Music is not just about entertainment. But it's about understanding. It's about us understanding each other," Cube said. "And we really just want some understanding. You ain't going to like everything I do. But you're going to like most of everything I do. And if you don't like what I got coming, just keep watching, because I'm going to keep coming. I love you guys. Thank you so much!"

The key to flat abs according to celebrity fitness trainer Jeanette Jenkins
(12 Jan 2017) THE KEY TO FLAT ABS ACCORDING TO CELEBRITY FITNESS TRAINER JEANETTE JENKINS The key to flat abs is striking a balance between diet and exercise. That's according to celebrity fitness trainer Jeanette Jenkins. The founder and president of The Hollywood Trainer Club says "if you are eating 2,000, 3000 calories a day but you're doing like a kick-butt 1,000 calorie workout, you are still not going to have that calorie negative." Jenkins, who has worked with stars such as Pink, Alicia Keys, Amber Rose, Camilla Alves and Serena Williams, reckons an average sized woman usually has to "stick to somewhere between 1200 to 1500 calories a day for weight loss and even just for everyday life. If you are eating more than 1500 calories a day, chances are you're going to gain weight." "The average meal size should be for an average woman between three to five hundred calories," says Jenkins. Once your correct calorie intake has been worked out, Jenkins says it's not just about cardio exercises, "you should still train those core muscles in specific core exercises. "Just think logically. How much of your core are you using when you sit on a recumbent bike and cycle? Not too many. Versus when you are up and either hiking, or hill climbing or running or sprinting. You are getting a lot more core rotation and movement in there. Or standing up right on a stair stepper versus leaning on it. So all you people who lean on the machines at the gym, you are no longer using your abs and you are doing yourself a disservice." Jenkins is one of Hollywood's most sought after health and fitness experts with over 25 years' experience. The Hollywood Trainer DVD Collection includes 18 different titles with various full-body exercise videos.

Trump Defends Robert E. Lee Statue Supporters
(15 Aug 2017) On Tuesday, President Donald Trump defended demonstrators who were rallying to save a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia. He compared the rationale for removing the confederate leader's statue to the removal of statues of former presidents who were also slaveholders saying "you're changing history. You're changing culture." Continuing his assessment that there is blame on "both sides" following the deadly violence last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, Trump said that the demonstrators were there to protest the taking down of what was to them "a very, very important statue." Trump then compared the debate around removing the confederate leaders' statues, to George Washington, the U.S. first president. Trump asked reporters, "So will George Washington now lose his status? Are we going to take down statues to George Washington?" He then rhetorically asked whether statues of Thomas Jefferson, another former U.S. president, should be taken down since he was a slave owner. In an impromptu press conference at Trump Tower, the president said there were "many people other than neo-Nazis and white Nationalists" attending the "Unite the Right" rally who were treated "unfairly" by the press. A loosely connected mix of white nationalists, neo-Nazis and other far-right extremists with disjointed missions had assembled in Charlottesville for the largest gathering of its kind in a decade. "Unite the Right" was the name given to the Virginia rally, which ended in bloodshed Saturday when a car plowed into a crowd of demonstrators, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer. Heyer was demonstrating with a group of counter-protesters in Charlottesville.

Released imam on life in Gambia after Jammeh
(2 Feb 2017) Locked inside a tiny cell in Gambia for more than 15 months, Imam Alhagie Ousman Sawaneh sought the answer to just one question: "What have I done?" Like so many others, he had few answers as to why he was targeted and imprisoned by the regime of Yahya Jammeh. The 65-year-old was picked up as he led volunteers clearing grass in a cemetery in October 2015. He had helped present a petition calling for the release of arrested rice farmers, but Sawaneh never thought that that would cost him his freedom. The Imam was released on 24 January from a prison in the Central River Region, just days after Jammeh fled into exile in Equatorial Guinea under an arrangement brokered by fellow West African leaders. Jammeh's departure was the end to a political crisis sparked by his refusal to cede power after losing the presidential election to opposition candidate Adama Barrow. In the final days of Jammeh's rule, a number of political prisoners were released - but many others are believed to still be held. Rights groups are calling on the new government to free them all and start investigating what happened to those who disappeared and are feared dead. President Barrow is adamant that talk of prosecutions is premature, and that the focus must remain on investigating rights abuses under Jammeh's rule. He is also talking about putting together a truth and reconciliation commission, similar to the one put into place after apartheid in South Africa. Sawaneh is determined that Gambia's future will be bright - if Gambians on all sides join forces, and Barrow works for the people who elected him.

The Duchess of Cambridge dances with Paddington Bear
(16 Oct 2017) THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE DANCES WITH PADDINGTON BEAR The Duchess of Cambridge had an impromptu dance with Paddington Bear on Monday afternoon (16 OCT.17) to sounds of a calypso band playing at Paddington Station in London. The royal was attending an event with Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry, held for the young beneficiaries of their Charities Forum. As part of the celebrations, guests got to spend the afternoon on a Belmond British Pullman steam train - which features in the upcoming sequel "Paddington 2." Actor Hugh Bonneville, who reprises his role of Henry Brown in the new film, was also in attendance. The actor, also a star of "Downton Abbey," said it was "a great opportunity" to promote the "Paddington 2" and the royals' charities. It's a wonderful way to celebrate more than, I think more than 10 or 12 charities that the Royal Highnesses are supporting and for us to be able say Paddington is on his way again. So it's a great opportunity," Bonneville said, adding, "And also I get to eat marmalade sandwiches on the train." After meeting with some of the young passengers on the train, the royals returned to the platform where the pregnant Duchess was enticed in to a quick dance with Paddington Bear before the train departed on its journey. "Paddington 2" is released in the U.K. 10 November 2017.

Insights into Princess Diana’s life behind closed palace doors from her former bodyguard Ken Wharfe.
(3 Aug 2017) INSIGHTS INTO PRINCESS DIANA'S LIFE BEHIND CLOSED PALACE DOORS FROM HER FORMER BODYGUARD KEN WHARFE Former royal bodyguard Ken Wharfe says his time working for the late Princess Diana was an enjoyable, if sometimes challenging role. Wharfe worked for the Princess between 1986 and 1994. Speaking fondly of the princess, he recalls how she would sometimes slip away from his protection. "It was a challenge, yeah, we had the slip occasionally, it wasn't deliberate, maybe sometimes it was, maybe in a fit of pique, maybe she did get fed up with me or maybe had a point to make, but that's part and parcel of the job which I enjoyed," he says. "I was very lucky to travel with her for eight years around the world in some extraordinary places, but that's one thing. What admired me more about Diana wasn't that, was the way that she seriously attracted herself to those that really wanted her to do something and she did come back to the office and did make something work and was genuinely interested, this wasn't a job of work just to tick the box, oh I've been to that charity, she made things work, made people feel special." Wharfe is a contributor to documentary, "Diana: In Her Own Words," providing commentary on recordings of the late Princess made by voice coach Peter Settelen at Diana's Kensington Palace residence in 1992 and 1993, just after Diana and Charles separated. The tapes were made to help Diana practice public speaking as she struck out on her own, and feature the late princess candidly discussing her personal life, commenting on their sex life, her fury at her husband's mistress and her love for another man. Diana Spencer married Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, in 1981 and the couple had two sons, Prince William and Prince Harry. They separated in 1992 and divorced in 1996, the year before Diana died in a car crash in Paris, aged 36. Charles married his longtime paramour Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005. In the recordings, Diana also describes confronting her husband and Parker Bowles at a party - a moment Wharfe says marked "the real beginning of the end" of the royal marriage. "She realized there was no chance of reconciliation," he said. "There was only one direction, and that was divorce." "This was the occasion of Camilla's sister's birthday and she and the Prince of Wales went to this party, which to me was slightly surprising, because Diana must have known this was going to be a difficult one, knowing that Camilla would be there, but that wasn't for me to say, I did my bit," he recalls. "We eventually confronted Charles and Camilla, who were sat on a sofa talking somewhere else in the house. Diana, remarkably calm, said to Camilla, 'Look, don't treat me like an idiot, I know what's going on' and at that point, Camilla said something really strange, which I said in the film, never really understood it, she said 'It's ok for you, you've got two wonderful boys'. Now I knew at this particular point, any chance of any reconciliation here was seriously out of the question and as I say in the film, this was then the real beginning of the end." Wharfe - who has a new book coming out on his time with the princess - says the documentary is a valuable reminder of Diana's role in "the reshaping of the monarchy." Her death unleashed a public outpouring of grief in Britain and around the world. The royal family, whose stoic reserve suddenly seemed out of touch, has since softened its stiff upper lip.

Music community honors Randy Travis in song
(9 Feb 2017) MUSIC COMMUNITY HONORS RANDY TRAVIS IN SONG A near fatal stroke couldn't take away the signature baritone of country star Randy Travis, and dozens of his friends, from Garth Brooks to Kenny Rogers, used their voices and his songs to honor the legend. Travis watched from the side of the stage Wednesday in Nashville, Tennessee, as country stars from multiple eras sang his classics, from "Forever and Ever, Amen" to "Three Wooden Crosses." By the end, he had joined in the celebration by singing "Amazing Grace" and leading others in singing "May the Circle Be Unbroken." Travis, whose multiplatinum 1986 debut album "Storms of Life" made him a star, suffered a stroke in 2013 that initially took away his ability to speak or read, but he's been steadily recovering his voice through rehabilitation, said his wife Mary. "We sing a lot in the car," said Mary Travis backstage beside her husband. "We sing a lot at home. Music is his soul. Music is just what he is made of." She said that it's clear that her husband still remembers how to sing and play the guitar, but the stroke caused a condition called aphasia that makes it difficult for him to communicate. "He knows all the words and he can chord every single song with his left hand," she said. Travis, who wore a yellow jacket embroidered with flowers, was all smiles as he watched the performers, who each ended their performances with a hug or a handshake for the singer. The concert was held to raise proceeds for a new foundation set up in his name to help stroke victims. Travis suffered from a viral infection of the heart and was in a coma when the stroke occurred. He spent over five months in hospital and underwent two brain surgeries, but battled back through years of rehabilitation. During his recovery, many of his fellow singers, including the Oak Ridge Boys, Alabama, Josh Turner and Jamey Johnson, would come for visits to sing for him and pray for him, said Mary Travis. Tanya Tucker said every time she visited Travis, she saw how far he had come in his progress. "Someone told me that I am the only one that really made him laugh, so I would go in there and tell him every dirty joke I could think of," said Tucker, who performed "I Told You So." Many artists talked about how Travis opened the door for a neo-traditionalist wave in country music in the late '80s with his unmistakable voice. "The bottom end of his voice is so wonderful," said Rogers, who sang his classic "The Gambler," for Travis. "Most people sing well in the middle of their range, but he got down in the bottom of his range and would just hold it. I never heard anything like that." "There isn't anybody in country music today that doesn't owe their career to Randy Travis," said Brooks from the stage. "I am one of those guys, man."

CTE: How Repeated Head Blows Affect the Brain
(7 Sep 2017) What is CTE? CTE stands for Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy. Dr. Ann McKee at the Boston University School of Medicine goes over some of the possible causes. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Ann McKee/Boston University School of Medicine "CTE has been associated with repetitive head impacts, that is repetitive concussion and sub concussive injury in contact sport athletes, but also in military veterans." The repetitive head impact linked with CTE impacts the brain. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Ann McKee/Boston University School of Medicine "So with repeated impact to the head, the brain inside the skull ricochets back and forth. It goes forward, accelerates and decelerates but it also goes rotationally and that causes the brain inside the skull to actually elongate and stretch and that stretching puts a lot of that physical force in that individual nerve cell, especially the neurons and the axons. And that can lead up to the buildup of Tau." Tau is a definitive sign of CTE. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Ann McKee/Boston University School of Medicine "Tau is a normal protein in the brain. Normally its inside the nerve cell and it contributes to what we call the cytoskeleton or the skeleton of the cells. It helps hold up the cell shape.Under abnormal circumstances, like after trauma, like when the nerve cells when the cells are damaged, the TAU actually comes off those, comes off the skeleton. It comes off the microtubules and it starts clumping up and eventually it will kill the cell if enough builds up over time. " Dr. Ann McKee dissects the brain to look for indications of CTE. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Ann McKee/Boston University School of Medicine "An individual in his forties, this is a former NFL player who is a person of large statue. You can see the ventricles, the areas of the brain that contain spinal fluid, they are enlarged. This thinning tends to be damaged more than the ventral aspect. That's something we've only really seen in CTE. We can see spaces near the hippocampus, which is part of the brain that is important for learning and for memory. And we can see there has been shrinkage there as well.To see this in such a young individual is quite startling. " There are various types of behavior associated with CTE. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Ann McKee/Neuropathologist/Boston University School of Medicine "We see a lot of CTE lesions on the top and the lateral side or the frontal lobe, which is about two-thirds of the forward part of the brain. That's what leads to the symptoms and signs of CTE. There is loss of cognition, loss of memory, some behavioral and personality change and often mood changes like depression." There are ways to preventing CTE SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Ann McKee/Neuropathologist/Boston University School of Medicine "Well the real key to preventing CTE is preventing exposure to head impact. So anything an individual athlete can do to minimize the amount of head contact, the number of falls or blows. " Researchers will continue to study CTE in order to figure out how to detect it in the future.

The Queen was visiting Canine Partners in Heyshott, near Midhurst - a charity that trains dogs to assist people with physical disabilities. A number of dogs were lucky enough to meet the Queen, including a black labrador puppy named Flint, and Yarna, another black lab who tried to present Her Majesty with a bouquet of flowers, but dropped them at zero hour. The royal visit was arranged to celebrate the charity having 400 dogs helping disabled owners across the UK. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: [email protected] (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News se You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/e3eb8adffbb35d6d9dc7321d5f44ffbd Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

Country stars on the first time they heard Randy Travis sing
(17 Feb 2017) COUNTRY STARS ON THE FIRST TIME THEY HEARD RANDY TRAVIS SING Randy Travis' unmistakable baritone voice shook up the country airwaves when he debuted in the late 1980s with songs like "On the Other Hand" that ushered in a wave of neo-traditional country music. Travis, who is recovering from a stroke he suffered in 2013, was honored by many of his peers during a concert this month in Nashville, Tennessee, that also featured younger singers who grew up listening to his voice on the radio. "Buy Me A Boat" singer Chris Jansen said hearing Travis made him want to pursue music. "Well, anytime you hear Randy Travis' music, it's an experience, period," said Jansen. "Because it's real, number one. It's real stories and I can identify with them. So when I heard it, I was like, 'Wow, this is what country music is and I want to do that.'" "American Idol" alum Scotty McCreery said in North Carolina, Travis was all over the stereo. "I grew up back in North Carolina and he is royalty back there in country music," McCreery said. "I would say it was very early on. I was learning his stuff on guitar and playing it all over the place. So I was a young kid for sure." Mark Chesnutt said Travis' voice reminded him of George Jones. "The first time I heard Randy Travis was back in the '80s, I guess," Chesnutt said. "Maybe '85 or something like that. I was driving my truck up to Jasper, Texas to do a gig I had booked up there. I was listening to the radio and they played a brand new record by a guy named Randy Travis. And they played 'On the Other Hand.' And right then, man, I just couldn't stand it anymore. I thought, 'Wow, this is what it's all about.' I finally heard a guy that had a voice that reminded me of George Jones, but was his own." Joe Nichols said his father played him Travis' debut album, "Storms of Life" while they were taking his mother to the hospital to give birth to Nichols' baby sister. "My dad had just bought the 'Storms of Life' tape," Nichols said. "1987 I believe. The tape had been out a couple of years. He loved the song '1982' and 'I Told You So,' 'On the Other Hand.' And he finally bought the record and I think he put it in when we were driving about 20-30 minutes to deliver my little sister. It was something that I wanted to repeat over and over again. And I thought it was a really great country song. So I feel in love with it immediately."

Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Pharrell, Josh Brolin, more attend Chris Cornell's funeral
(27 May 2017) MUSIC'S ELITE AND CELEBRITIES GATHERED TO HONOR CHRIS CORNELL Music's elite and Hollywood stars remembered Chris Cornell at a somber memorial service Friday (26 MAY) that focused on the Soundgarden frontman's love of family and friends as much as it did on his musical achievements as one of rock's leading voices. "Chris was as melodic as The Beatles, as heavy as Sabbath and as haunting as Edgar Allan Poe," Tom Morello, Cornell's Audioslave bandmate, said during his eulogy. Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington and guitarist Brad Delson performed Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" for the crowd of mourners, including Brad Pitt, Pharrell Williams, James Franco, Christian Bale and numerous members of rock royalty, many of whom were moved to tears. Four large portraits of Cornell were on display on a dais where Morello, actor Josh Brolin, Pearl Jam bassist Jeff Ament, film producer Eric Esrailian and Cornell's Soundgarden bandmates Kim Thayil and Matt Cameron delivered eulogies under overcast skies at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. They all spoke of the rocker's compassion and his delight in his three children. Cameron said he and Cornell had "so many normal dad conversations" about the Cornell kids: Christopher, Toni and Lily. Linda Ramone opened the service with word that Cornell was buried next to her late husband, punk rocker Johnny Ramone, whose headstone features a statue of him playing guitar. Cornell's music played before the hourlong service, and afterward as guests visited his grave site in the Garden of Legends section of Hollywood Forever Cemetery. Among those paying respects were Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield of Metallica, Dave Navarro and Perry Farrell of Jane's Addiction, singer-songwriter Joe Walsh, guitarist Nile Rodgers, rocker Courtney Love and Bush's Gavin Rossdale. Cornell, 52, was pronounced dead May 18 after he was found unresponsive in a Detroit hotel room hours after performing a concert with Soundgarden. Coroner's officials said preliminary autopsy results show the singer hanged himself, but full toxicology results remain pending. The singer's family has disputed the findings and claim Cornell may have taken more of an anti-anxiety drug than he was prescribed. The Seattle native was a leading voice of the grunge movement in the 1990s. Besides Soundgarden, he scored hits as a solo artist and with bands Temple of the Dog and Audioslave. He is survived by his wife and three children.

Nicole Kidman gets emotional on Cannes red carpet after 'The Killing of a Sacred Deer' premiere
(22 May 2017) NICOLE KIDMAN GETS EMOTIONAL ON CANNES RED CARPET AFTER 'THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER' PREMIERE Nicole Kidman shared an intimate moment with husband Keith Urban Monday (22 MAY 2017) after the Cannes Film Festival premiere of her new movie, "The Killing of a Sacred Deer." Wiping tears from her eyes, Kidman – who has brought four projects to Cannes this year – cozied up to Urban, burying her face in his shoulder in the glare of photographers' camera flashes. Kidman was joined on the red carpet by her "Sacred Deer" co-stars Colin Farrell and child actors Sunny Suljic, Barry Keoghan and Raffey Cassidy. Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos's brutally dark family comedy divided the audience at its morning press screening, though critics largely praised Lanthimos' allegorical horror. It's one of 19 movies competing for the Palme d'Or, which will be awarded on May 28.

Leslie Jones, Cardi B among front row at Christian Siriano’s 'psychedelic dream garden'
(10 Sep 2017) LESLIE JONES, CARDI B AMONG FRONT ROW AT CHRISTIAN SIRIANO'S 'PSYCHEDELIC DREAM GARDEN' "Work it!" shouted actress Leslie Jones from her front-row seat, as a model strutted by in a revealing number. "I want that!" she called out after inspecting another seductive garment. For a fashion show, it was an infectious and joyful atmosphere, enhanced by the obvious commitment to diversity of all types on the runway: size, color and gender. Christian Siriano offered what he called a "psychedelic dream garden" of designs, and a diverse runway in terms of size and gender. "So I'm kind of bringing everyone into a little bit of a dream. I'm calling it my psychedelic dream garden. So it's kind of like, I think it was more about that I was kind of like having this idea that I was, I don't know, seeing plants come to life in a way. But I really just wanted it to be kind of romantic and beautiful and it's quite bold, very colorful," he said. The crowd seemed to respond. Siriano's colors included a bright sunflower, an even brighter grass green, and, brighter still, hibiscus pink - otherwise known as shocking pink - in a column dress and in a one-shouldered, ruffled jumpsuit. Jones, a big fan of the designer ever since he stepped up to dress her for the "Ghostbusters" premiere last year, gushed about him before the show. "You know what I'm saying? He so normal. He's so down to earth and he does love all women. That's what I love about him. He loves all women," said Jones. The actress was proud to share that she had just celebrated her 50th birthday. "Yes! I just turned 50!" she said, adding that she'd never hide her age. "No! Why would I do that? No, I need everybody to know that when you get to this age it doesn't have to be a death sentence," she said with a laugh. Also sitting in the front row were actresses Gina Gershon, Vanessa Williams and Patricia Clarkson. "He's a beautiful man. He's truly a great spirit and he loves women. He has a true, genuine love of women. Not of particular women. Of all women - all ages, sizes, shapes, color. He's the real thing," said Clarkson. Rapper Cardi B, whom Siriano dressed for the VMA Awards, is also a huge fan. "I feel like crying for him because I know he's so happy and he such a good, genuine person. He took his time for my VMA outfits and I got like almost in every press like best dressed and I'm so happy that this is happening to him, for him," she said. Williams was thrilled to watch Siriano's success over the years. "I've known Christian since he won 'Project Runway.' He got a chance to do 'Ugly Betty' like 10 years ago. So I met him when he was just starting out and to watch his, it's not even a meteoric rise because it's been slow and steady and phenomenal and growing," she said. Ruffles were huge - metaphorically and literally. A few models chose to emphasize the flounce by stopping mid-runway and cavorting a bit before continuing their walks. They included supermodel Coco Rocha, who opened the show in electric floral brocade, and closed it in a black orchid flounce gown.

21 years of life in a mountain wilderness
(8 Feb 2017) LEAD IN: Many dream of leaving the city for a more simple life in the country. But how about going to live in the wilderness 4000 feet up a mountain? A Bosnian couple are celebrating their 21st year doing just that. STORY-LINE: Their home most certainly has a view. Ramiz Palos and his wife Zemina fled the hardships of urban life in Bosnia as soon as the country had emerged from a 4-year-war two decades ago. They choose to live on Mount Vlasic in central Bosnia at 1,300 meters above sea level, separated by kilometres of dirt road from the nearest inhabited place. Palos says he is not a recluse and was not looking for an escape from traumatic memories. Instead, he says, he wanted to take control of his life. After 21 years of primal existence in the wilderness Palos feels in control and happy, insisting he would never return to "civilisation". "I had several reasons to move here. I came here to secure means for existence, but also to live an exciting life, to not have a boring life," he says. Life in the wilderness has many challenges, but Palos insists embracing it was easier and more productive than if he had waited for the government to create a job for him. "People here (in Bosnia) are too willing to surrender responsibility for their own life to somebody else, they are not thinking. People need to think to come up with ways to find work for themselves. I don't have to worry about the work of the government or anyone else," he says. While he sometimes has to fight off bears and wolves and to endure pouring rains, winter storms and strong winds, Palos has an abundance of food, fresh air and a warm home. "You need to know how to behave (in nature) because we get heavy rains, winter storms and strong winds. You need to know how to behave in such circumstances," he says. "Sometimes it gets so cold that I cannot leave home for two months, but I have enough food and everything else I need so it does not matter. Winter comes and goes." With an unemployment rate of close to 30 percent, finding a job in Bosnia can be hard and close to a fifth of the country's population lives in poverty. The country is failing to fully capitalise on the good climatic conditions and an abundance of fertile land that make it one of the most favourable spots for farming in southern Europe. But Aleksandra Nikolic from the Sarajevo Faculty of Agriculture and Food Science believes that a growing number of Bosnians are recognising the advantages of rural life. "Agriculture is a way of life; it is no longer identified with the image of an exhausted man farming a rough patch of land in the middle of nowhere with the help of emaciated farming animals," she says. "Agriculture is a sector of economy that helps people in local communities to weather the periods of financial, economic, political or any other crisis by securing a source of income that helps them get through hard times." Palos might be the best example of that. When he first moved into the mountains in 1996 he lived in an old van and then in a makeshift tent. But after just a few months, he had built a simple house for himself and was joined by his wife. They still live in the house with no running water and off the electricity grid. But they grow their own vegetables and corn, raise goats and farm fish in the wild mountain river.

Prince death spurs his 1980s band The Revolution to reunite for tour
(19 Apr 2017) PRINCE DEATH SPURS HIS 1980S BAND THE REVOLUTION TO REUNITE FOR TOUR For members of Prince's 1980s backing band The Revolution, reuniting and hitting the road for a spring U.S. tour is how they are coping with the "Purple Rain" pop superstar's unexpected death a year ago. "It's not sentimental," said guitarist Wendy Melvoin, sitting on a couch with other members of The Revolution during a break at their Minneapolis rehearsal space Wednesday (19 APRIL 2017). "We're not leading with, like, 'Oh, we need to go and just like go through our old yearbook and look at how great we looked back then.'" Instead, Melvoin insists, when the band is playing, "the energy is in the bottle. We're taking it to the people who are grieving like we are, and letting them have a little bit of relief." When Prince died of an accidental painkiller overdose, members of The Revolution were mourning at a Minneapolis hotel when they made an impromptu video, promising to reunite for shows honoring their one-time flamboyant front man. In September, they performed three sold-out shows at the fabled First Avenue nightclub -- setting of Prince's hit 1984 movie "Purple Rain." And now The Revolution is preparing to kick off a national tour Friday at Paisley Park in the Minneapolis suburb of Chanhassen on the anniversary of Prince's death. The tour includes stops in Chicago, Washington, D.C., New York, Cleveland, Detroit, Los Angeles and San Francisco before ending in Seattle in July 15. "It was a powerful time in all of our lives," Melvoin recalls of the band coming together to mourn Prince. "And this is part of our grief. And this is what we're doing as we're mourning through this." Melvoin is joined by bassist BrownMark, keyboardists Matt Fink and Lisa Coleman, and drummer Bobby Z. The reunited Revolution plans to play Prince's synthesizer-heavy 1980s music through his lauded 1987 double album "Sign o' the Times." Prince may be gone, BrownMark said, "but we have the ability now to give people a glimpse of what we experienced with him. And I think that's a powerful thing. I know it helped me heal." While Prince had a reputation as a perfectionist, members of The Revolution remember the good times goofing in the studio. "We had fun. We had a lot of fun. Sometimes we would be rehearsing and we'd crack up, we'd just laugh for an hour, cracking jokes," BrownMark recalls. "We'd go play softball," keyboardist Fink said. "'OK, we're not going to rehearse today, let's go play softball.'" After years of recording and touring with The Revolution, Prince "did what any boss would do and just put it (the band) to bed," Bobby Z. said. "That intense run we had, all those years, it was starting to come apart at the seams, with personalities and under that kind of pressure, just like human beings do, and he just kind of made a decision," the drummer said. "And he wanted to move on as basically a solo artist with a backing band, no disrespect. But this was a band he was a very critical member of. And we drove him kind of crazy, as you can tell." Whether The Revolution will continue beyond this tour is an open question. "We'd love to be able to see if there are some legs with this," Melvoin said. "But we got to go out, we got to get feedback, we've got to see what's going on."

Paul Schrader: 'We’re in a very odd and unfortunate place in America'
(31 Aug 2017) PAUL SCHRADER: 'WE'RE IN A VERY ODD AND UNFORTUNATE PLACE IN AMERICA' Storm Harvey's inundation of Houston has driven home the devastating power of nature, and given new urgency to questions about humanity's effect on the environment. Thousands of miles away in sunny Italy, ecological crisis and spiritual malaise are at the heart of Paul Schrader's "First Reformed," which has its world premiere Thursday (31 AUG. 2017) at the Venice International Film Festival. Schrader is not the only director in Venice exploring catastrophic environmental effects. Both Ai Weiwei's documentary "Human Flow" and Alexander Payne's sci-fi story "Downsizing" show the vast impacts of a changing climate on humanity. Schrader is not surprised. He says the current global situation brings age-old questions about the meaning of life and death into the foreground. "The environmental crisis has put the kind of arguments and debates that have been going on for three thousand years in the history of philosophy and theology in to bold face because the whole question of 'what is man?' looks like it may be coming to a decision," says Schrader. The American filmmaker, who is best known for delivering blood, sweat and visceral shocks, from Martin Scorsese's "Taxi Driver" and "Raging Bull," both of which he wrote, was quick to criticize the current political climate in his country. "We're in a very odd and unfortunate place in America," said Schrader. "I remember thinking a half dozen years ago about (Silvio) Berlusconi (former Prime Minister of Italy) and saying 'that can never happen here.' Well it did happen here and we now have our own Berlusconi. So much for American hubris." "First Reformed" is a spiritual thriller in which the conflict rages inside Ethan Hawke's character, Rev. Toller, the uneasy minister of a historic old church in upstate New York. He is wracked by moral doubts, and when he meets a despairing young environmental activist, the cracks in his belief system begin to split wide open and he starts to contemplate extreme action. Hawke says he was drawn to a film that asks important questions about where faith institutions stand on one of the biggest issues humanity faces. "The religious community has been shockingly quiet in regards to the environment and it has kind of shown no leadership and it's really something that I have thought a lot about because if they were to take a leadership position they could achieve great things and it seems such an obvious… I mean this world, this garden that we live in and honoring it and protecting it, all that stuff can sound kind of corny but if placed in a religious context it could become vital and important and I am so curious to see the response to the film and to see if it can start a dialogue that way or continue it." The film has, so far, been well received by audience members which Hawke's co-star Amanda Seyfried describes as the "perfect scenario." "We really, really loved the movie, we loved working on it. It was made for nothing and it has something really incredible to say and it's super thought provoking and it's at the Venice Film Festival and it got good reviews so we're sitting pretty," she said. "First Reformed" is one of 21 films competing for the festival's top prize, the Golden Lion.

A look at the last remaining paternoster lifts
(25 Aug 2017) LEAD IN The paternoster elevator, which works on a circuit and never stops moving, is rarely seen these days. But despite some concerns over safety, a handful still operate in Central and Eastern Europe. STORY-LINE: Paternoster elevators are a holdover of times when safety regulations were a little more lax, but the unusual elevators are still in use. The name Paternoster, Latin for Lords Prayer, comes not from a last ditch effort to nervously atone before jumping on one. It actually gets its name because each car runs on chains on a belt system in a loop, a little like rosary beads on a rosary. Passengers are supposed to exit before the paternoster passes the top or bottom floor. If they don't nothing serious happens, but they must wait to make the turn in the circuit before heading back up or down in the opposite direction. Some people make the turn just for fun to see what happens. The inventors of the paternoster saw it as a way to deliver more people up and down floors without as a long of a wait. The disadvantage is they could be very dangerous if they don't have an emergency shut off triggered by an obstruction. This one in Prague's Lucerna Palace, a downtown Art Deco shopping passage, has an emergency shut off. There are dozens of decades old paternosters still in use in the Czech Republic, where they are mainly used by staff in government buildings. A few are open to the public to ride. There are also as many 200 of them still in use in the Germany. But they are slowly being replaced, since new ones are no longer allowed to be installed in buildings. And a few remain in the UK where the invention of the paternoster, dating to the 19th century, has its origins.

Hip-hop love unites actress Nia Long and '80s rapper Roxanne Shante
(23 Mar 2017) HIP-HOP LOVE UNITES ACTRESS NIA LONG AND '80S RAPPER ROXANNE SHANTE A love for hip-hop unites actress Nia Long and 1980s rapper Roxanne Shante. Long portrays Shante's mother in the biopic "Roxanne Roxanne" that premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival. The 46-year-old actress, raised in Brooklyn, New York, says she grew up rapping along to Shante's songs "Roxanne's Revenge" and "Have a Nice Day." "I just remember being in the mirror, being 13 and with my girlfriends, and we would do these pseudo rap battles. And every girl wanted to be her because she was the boss," Long said. "She was - she is a pioneer in hip-hop. We are of the same generation. That was the music that told our stories, the music that supported our journey." Shante started her rap career at the tender age of 14 as part of producer Marley Marl's Juice Crew that included Biz Markie and Big Daddy Kane. She acknowledges she wasn't savvy enough at the time to pay attention to the business side of the music industry. But the former rapper, now 47, says some of the sting is gone now that she's the subject of a well-received independent movie. "The truth to the story is that I did great at the end the end and I think that's where it really matters, right?" Shante said. "It's the end game. So I think I did great great at the end. So I think I would've preferred to have had this happen now than to have had this happen then and not being able to benefit from it the way I do now. Like now I'm at the age where I can appreciate all of this." Shante isn't recording new music any time soon. "I enjoy being a legend. I don't want to tamper with that. I think there was a lot of artists who should have left certain things alone," she said. "Once you reach to a certain point where you are, you just kind of like enjoy it. So I enjoy being Roxanne Shante, female rapper from the '80s. I enjoy that and I don't want to change it. I wouldn't change it." Shante has a 30-year-old son who visited the New York set of "Roxanne Roxanne." "He's so cute. Then he was like, 'I'm Roxanne's son.' And he so well spoken. He was amazing," Long said. "Hip-hop did that. That's no bedtime. Hip-hop, staying up late. Being in the studio, being at the show, raised in the green room," Shante responded. Long said that while the music industry has a reputation for being volatile and sometimes cutthroat, "if you have little ones, they treat your little ones like family." "I remember – years ago, I directed a video and it was a hip-hop video. And all the men just gathered around my son who was like two at the time. And I didn't even have to worry about him," Long said. "They held him down. So the whole idea that it takes a village – it really – there might be issues within the hip-hop community and certain beefs, but I really do think that at the end of the day, it is one big happy family." "Roxanne Roxanne" is expected to be released in theatres later this year.

Philippine and Australian forces hold training exercise
(18 Dec 2017) The first stage of the Military Operation on Urbanized Terrain (MOUT) program between the Philippine Marine Corps and Australian Defence Force, taking place in Cavite province, drew to a close on Monday. The MOUT is part of an on-going effort to train Filipino troops in urban warfare following a disastrous siege by pro-Islamic State group militants on Marawi city in the southern Philippines this year. Philippine troops accustomed to battling insurgents in jungle terrain struggled for five months to fight the hundreds of militants and snipers who took cover in buildings, mosques and houses in Marawi. As part of the closing ceremony, the Filipino Marines demonstrated various military warfare operations that they have learned including close combat target engagement, sniping and counter-sniping, improvised explosive device encounters, and urban breaching, clearing and search. Australian Ambassador Amanda Gorely mentioned in her speech at the MOUT closing ceremonies that she is happy that Australia continues to provide support to regional allies, as terrorism is not only a threat to the region but to the world. She also said that more training programs between the two countries will commence once again early next year. As part of Filipino military tradition, the ceremonies ended with a lunch feast, locally called a 'boodle fight', in which everyone eats by hand.

Spelling Bee Champ Shares Study Secrets
(2 Jun 2017) Ananya Vinay showed little emotion as she plowed through word after mystifying word in the final rounds of the Scripps National Spelling Bee. She says, for her, it's a sport. "I like words and I like language and once I get started I don't want to quit. I just want to keep on going." A day after winning the Bee, Ananya shared some of the study strategies she used during her two years of preparation for that moment. She says the key is reading, lots of reading, and studying foreign languages. "Well, really, it's hard to do roots for any language other than Latin or Greek for the other languages you just have to figure out roots and what rules and what makes sense in the word," she said. She was sure to point out that it was her own motivation, not parental prodding, that kept her on track. Ananya didn't come into the bee as the most heralded speller, but she outclassed her better-known competitors and survived a long duel with 14-year-old Rohan Rajeev to win the 90th Scripps bee on Thursday. And she never looked all that impressed by the words she was given. The final word, marocain, which is a type of fabric, she says she was already pretty sure of before she gave the answer. "I just confirmed the definition and then I asked the origin to make sure that my spelling made sense," she said. Watching from the audience, her father, Vinay Sreekumar, says he could tell she was calm and confident up to the last minute. "It was not a surprise for us that she won yesterday, because I know that she's worked very hard," he said. The last 14 winners of the Scripps National Spelling Bee were Indian-American. Sreekumar, an Indian immigrant, attributes that to a cultural emphasis on education. "And I think it's that thread which is kind of getting passed on." Ananya will take home more than 40,000 US dollars in cash and prizes, which she plans to split with her younger brother and use toward college tuition.

Guitar Museum featuring rare instruments opens in Nashville
(27 Apr 2017) RARE GUITARS ON DISPLAY IN NASHVILLE A unique collection of rare guitars is now on display in Nashville at Belmont University. Bluegrass musician and singer Ricky Skaggs and country star Vince Gill got a chance to play some of the rare instruments during the grand opening of the Gallery of Iconic Guitars on Tuesday (25 APRIL 2017). The collection belonged to the late Steven Kern Shaw, who was a philanthropist and the grandson of Jerome Kern who was one of America's foremost composers of musical theater and popular music. Some of the instruments on display include: a 1939 Martin D-45, one of only 91 made; a 1923 Gibson F-5 mandolin, signed by designer Lloyd Loar; and a 1887 Martin 0-28. "It's really amazing quality stuff," said Skaggs, an avid collector himself. "In my whole lifetime, I have only held three D-45 pre war guitars. Two of them are in here. It's really amazing." Gill said what is unique is that Belmont University will allow these instruments to be played, not just stuck behind glass. "If you are a nut for instruments, they are not only beautiful to look at," Gill said. "For the opportunity for some of these kids are going to get to maybe use some of these instruments, record with some of these instruments and get a real understanding of what a fine fine instrument can do." Gill said that while these instruments weren't famous for who owned them or played them like instruments at the Country Music Hall of Fame, they are famous as works of art. "They are important to our history," Gill said. "They paint our history, they tell our history just as much as the songs that were written on them and the songs that were sung on them." Skaggs said the gallery allows musicians to get very close to the instruments, even close enough to smell them. "You can actually go up and smell," Skaggs said. "You can put your nose in the hole, which I love to do. You can smell these instruments. There's something about smell that takes you back to your grandma's attic, you know, a hope chest or something like that. But these instruments, I don't think they want people to just come up and grab them cause there is security here. But to be able to be close enough to actually see the grain in the instrument, to see the bridge and to see all these things, the intricacies of how they were made and designed. And to look at them and compare them with other guitars. And how just a slight little difference of wood, different carving the top, makes a vast amount of difference in how they sound."

Muslims in Bosnia celebrate religious holiday of Eid
(1 Sep 2017) Bosnia and Herzegovina's Muslim community marked Eid al-Adha on Friday by attending prayers. Eid al-Adha, which means "the Feast of the Sacrifice", is one of the two most important holidays in the Muslim calendar. The holiday marks what Muslims believe is Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his own son as an act of obedience to God. At the last minute, they believe, God intervened, and gave Ibrahim a ram to sacrifice instead. Traditionally, Muslims sacrifice an animal on Eid and share the meat with their families, neighbours, and people less fortunate than themselves.

Patsy Cline museum opens in Nashville
(25 Apr 2017) PATSY CLINE GETS OVERDUE HONOR IN NASHVILLE One of country music's iconic vocalists Patsy Cline got a long overdue honor with the opening of a new museum. The singer helped to define modern country music, with a style that crossed genres into pop, rock and country. Famous for songs like "Crazy," "Walkin' After Midnight" and "I Fall to Pieces," she died in a plane crash that cut her blossoming career short. The new museum opened this month in April just above the Johnny Cash Museum in Nashville and features many items that have been in storage for decades, including many of her homemade dresses. "You have some like this where they store bought them and embellished them themselves with the rhinestones and various things," explained her daughter Julie Fudge. "And then you have the ones that they made, that Patsy designed and then she and her mother would work together to make these." Bill Miller, the museum's founder who also founded the Johnny Cash Museum, said her short career and the fact that her fame continued to grow after her death made it difficult to find all the pieces for a museum. "When you do a museum, your biggest fear is content," Miller said. "And with an artist that passed away in 1963 that was a big fear, because at the time of her passing, Patsy wasn't a huge star. There weren't the legions of fans that were saving posters and memorabilia." "And I must say, had we not gotten this set up and you put this museum together, I am not sure where we would have these things today," Fudge said. Her daughter said that her mother still has an impact on contemporary country music. "I guess you would attribute that to with the classic music," Fudge said of her reputation. "It has a lot to do with Owen Bradley with the sound with the undated music."

Model Ashley Graham shares an embarrassing Anna Wintour story
(5 Jun 2017) ASHLEY GRAHAM SHARES EMBARRASING ANNA WINTOUR STORY Ashley Graham is one of the most popular models around right now, but the model says she was convinced her career was over just one year ago after an awkward run-in with American Vogue editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour. Graham said she was at a screening of "The First Monday in May" documentary in Los Angeles with her husband, Justin Ervin, when they approached Wintour to introduce themselves. She told her husband beforehand that the plan was to say hi and walk away but instead, Ervin went in for a hug. "Justin was so excited to meet Anna," recalled Graham. "He said, 'Oh, Anna. It's so nice to meet you' reached his hand out, shook her hand, pulled her in and said, 'I just got to give you a hug' and he's a big guy. He put his arms around her and all you see are these two, little forearms come up and just go (makes gesture) 'Nice to meet you.' (Laughs) And she backed away slowly and had a smile on her face and I was like, 'Sorry, thank you, bye' and then we walked away." Graham said she was mortified at the time. "I grabbed him under his arm kind of like a kid and I was like, 'You just ruined my life. My career. It's over.'" When the model didn't get invited to the Met Gala, hosted by Wintour, a few weeks later, Graham was even more sure she had rubbed her the wrong way. Slowly she realized her luck was changing when she got the cover of SELF magazine - sanctioned by Wintour. "And then sure enough the next thing you know I'm on the cover of Vogue," said Graham. This year she was also invited to the Met Gala.

(31 May 2012) As Britain prepares to celebrate the diamond jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, the Queen herself can't see what all the fuss is about - according to her cousin and close friend, Lady Elizabeth Anson. While the world may associate the Queen with the pomp and pageantry of glittering events such as the state opening of parliament a few weeks ago, the monarch is described as a "modest" person who has been surprised by the outpouring of affection among her subjects. "She's really quite taken aback about this," Lady Elizabeth told The Associated Press. "What's sweet is that she's incredibly modest as far as these things are concerned." The Queen has spent her life in the centre of the public gaze, and has spent much of the year to date on a tour of Britain. This included a visit in March to the royal family's favourite food store, Fortnum and Mason - in the company of Camilla, the wife of her son Prince Charles, and Catherine, the wife of her grandson Prince William. But according to Lady Elizabeth, when the Queen is at home or on holiday with the family, she just wants to lead as ordinary a life as possible. "When she's on holiday, and we have barbecue lunches outside or picnic lunches, there aren't staff laying the table. The Queen is in charge of the table and the candles. There are no members of staff." Lady Elizabeth is a royal in her own right, as the daughter of the late Princess Anne of Denmark. But her parents separated when she was four, and her father died when she was just sixteen. The Queen helped to fill the void, mentoring Lady Elizabeth and taking her under her wing. Lady Elizabeth has remained close not just to the Queen but to most of the European royals. Her business, Party Planners, has catered many high-profile royal functions, including a number of state banquets. Lady Elizabeth revealed that the Queen takes a hands-on approach to royal banquets, personally checking the table, the menu, the seating plan and the flowers. Royal banquets don't just occur without any regal involvement, she points out. The Queen herself makes them happen. "She is a supreme hostess, so when it comes to the planning of things, don't think that she has just let the chef decide what everybody's going to have for lunch in the Palace that day - it's her." And when important guests are staying in Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle during state visits, the Queen always checks the bedrooms to ensure they are in suitable shape, Lady Elizabeth said. Lady Elizabeth said the Queen was very much looking forward to the four-day centrepiece of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations, starting this weekend. The celebrations include a river pageant along the Thames, a carriage procession through the streets, and the event that Lady Elizabeth says the Queen's looking forward to more than anything else - an afternoon watching horse racing.

Jaitley also pointed out that the trilateral US-India-Japan joint "Malabar" naval exercises to be held in July was "reflective of the level of cooperation our armed forces have with each other." =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: [email protected] (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

Charley Pride reflects on career as country music pioneer
(14 Jul 2017) CHARLEY PRIDE REFLECTS ON CAREER AS COUNTRY MUSIC PIONEER Charley Pride is not only one of the most successful black country singers of all time, he's been one of the most successful country singers period. With 36 No. 1 hits in his career, the 79-year-old Country Music Hall of Famer is back with his first new album in six years, "Music in My Heart," which was released in July. Pride also received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award this year. The Grammy-winning vocalist from Sledge, Mississippi - the son of a sharecropper - had dreams of being a baseball player and a singer. "My dad, we had a Philco radio and we couldn't touch the knobs," Pride said after a recent performance at the Grand Ole Opry, in Nashville, Tennessee. "Everything we listened to was what he had tuned it to, so I got to listening to the Grand Ole Opry and all when I was small and I got hooked on it and it just went from there. I had no idea that I was preparing myself for this, but I am glad, especially since I didn't make it in baseball." When he started his singing career with RCA in the 1960s, he said that despite being one of the few mainstream black country artists on the radio, he never encountered any resistance among country music fans. "A lot of people, you know, would come up to me and say, 'Man you must have had it hard,' you know. I said 'No.'", said Pride. "When I would talk to people like yourself, you know, like I am talking to a reporter, I would say, 'I have not had one iota hoot call from the audience.' 'Uh oh, you're giving me that 'I can't believe, you've got to be lying look.'" But he said he did encounter resistance among show promoters when he was trying to book performances. "The big thing was promoters was very reluctant to book me," Pride said. "But they finally came around." He was named CMA Entertainer of the Year in 1971, as well as back-to-back male vocalist in 1971 and 1972. Some of his biggest hits include "Just Between You and Me" and "Is Anybody Goin' To San Antone" and gained crossover success on the pop charts. On the new album, Pride sings a song, "The Way It Was in '51" that was written by Pride's close friend, Merle Haggard, who died this year. "I used Merle's band the first time I ever went on stage with a big package. It was a package show; it had about 10,000 people in Detroit. And I got there about five minutes before time to go on and again we go back to that promoters being reluctant to book me. They still... I was booked, but they still was nervous. So I got there, he says, 'Charley,' he had his pencil like that. And he says, 'Now' - there's a 3 o'clock show and an 8 o'clock show. He says, 'Now, you don't have to...' He said 'It's five minutes before you go on,' he says. 'Now, you haven't rehearsed with the band, or nothing?' I said, 'No.' I said 'But do they play country music?' He said, 'Yeah.' I said, 'Well, I'll be ready in two minutes.'" Pride learned many things from Haggard, including the need to pay it forward during live shows. "When I started out, I didn't have a band and I said, 'If I ever get my band, whoever opens up my show, they are going to sound as good as they can sound.' That was my decision and that was the way it was: all the people that was on my show, that's what happened to them. They went on to be successful because my band made them sound just as good. Like I said, I wanted them to sound as good they could sound." "Music in My Heart" is out now.

Country music singer Glen Campbell dies
(8 Aug 2017) Glen Campbell, the grinning, high-pitched entertainer who had such hits as "Rhinestone Cowboy" and spanned country, pop, television and movies, has died. He was 81. Campbell's publicist Sandy Brokaw says the singer died Tuesday morning in Nashville. No cause was immediately given. Campbell announced in June 2011 that he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and that it was in its early stages at that time. Campbell was one of the biggest stars of the late 1960s and 1970s. He sold more than 45 million records, had 12 gold albums and 75 chart hits. He co-starred with John Wayne in the 1969 movie "True Grit" and had a weekly audience of some 50 million people for the "Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour" on CBS from 1969 to 1972.

Jerusalem's Afro Palestinians feel more integrated
(29 Jan 2017) LEADIN: A third generation of Afro-Palestinians in Jerusalem's Old City are growing up more integrated and confidant about their place. Despite poverty and occasional discrimination, many say they now feel more accepted by their fellow countrymen. STORY-LINE: In the shadow of the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem's Old City lies the "African Quarter", home to a little-known community of nearly 50 Arab families of African descent. Descended from Muslim pilgrims from a variety of African countries, they now consider themselves proud Palestinians, despite widespread poverty and occasional discrimination from both Palestinians and Israelis. Several have even participated in violent attacks against Israel. The forefathers of Jerusalem's African Quarter are mostly Muslim pilgrims from Chad, Sudan, Nigeria and Senegal who settled here or got stuck during periods of war. Some are the descendants of slaves or soldiers brought in during Ottoman times. Others came with The Arab Salvation Army, an army of volunteers that fought on the Arab side in the 1948 war surrounding Israel's creation. Ali Jiddah is a well-known Palestinian tour guide in Jerusalem's Old City. A former member of the radical Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Jiddah spent 17 years in an Israeli prison for taking part in a 1968 bombing that injured nine Israelis before he was freed in a prisoner swap. Having long ago renounced violence he now offers what he calls an "alternative" perspective on the conflict with Israel through his tours. "Concerning the second, third, fourth generation, if you ask us to identify ourselves we say we are Afro-Palestinians," he says. "We were born here, we grew up here, we have the same history like Palestinians. Even whenever I sit with Palestinians I say 'look brothers, sisters, you are oppressed by the occupation but we as Afro Palestinians, we are double oppressed, first as Palestinians, second because of the colour'." But despite being oppressed in some ways, Jiddah believes that the political contributions of Afro-Palestinians have elevated their status in the eyes of their fellow countrymen. While Jerusalem's Afro-Palestinians have been here for decades, fitting in was not always easy and can still be a challenge. Many newcomers, such as shop owner Hawa Jibril Balalawi whose father was from Chad, faced discrimination based on the colour of their skin. "Some will deal with you as a friend, a colleague at his school, but some other people don't accept this thing, they exist even now. But when you treat them well, they will feel ashamed and behave a bit better", she says. Most of Jerusalem's Afro-Palestinian residents live in old buildings which were originally built in the 10th century for the city's poor. Made later into prisons by the Ottomans, the buildings were handed over to the Old City's Islamic trusteeship during the British Mandate, which rented them to members of the African community as many served as guards and servants to the Al Aqsa Mosque. Despite these deep roots to the area, some Palestinians still refer to them with a local derogatory term "abeed" (Arabic for "slaves") and to their neighbourhood as "habs al-abeed" (the slaves' prison). Many do not enjoy the same access to education as other Palestinians. Standing under posters of the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and Nelson Mandela, Mousa Qous - Director of the African Community Society in the Old City - explains: "The rate of education in the African community is not as high as the Palestinian and there are only very few, you can count them, only very few people who were able to reach or obtain a high degree."
