Matisyahu Announces “Broken Crowns” Fall Tour Dates With Common Kings And Orphan

first_imgGrammy-nominated Reggae artist Matisyahu has announced “The Broken Crowns Tour” featuring direct support from Common Kings and the birth of new Matisyahu side project Orphan. As the “King Without a Crown,” Matisyahu has created his own space in reggae music. Over the years, he has developed a loyal following that has driven singles such as “One Day” and “King Without a Crown” to international recognition. His newest album, Undercurrent, was released earlier this year via Thirty Tigers and Matisyahu’s own imprint, Fallen Sparks. The album embodies a collaborative and freeform spirit as Matisyahu and his band seamlessly merge instrumental improvisation sessions with lyrics and vocals. The synergistic energy of the new album is especially apparent onstage, where Matisyahu, guitarist Aaron Dugan, bassist Stu Brooks, drummer Joe Tomino and keyboardist Big Yuki bring their creative dynamic to lifePhishin’ With Matisyahu: How LSD “Turned My Entire World Inside Out”Orange County rock-reggae outfit Common Kings will join Matisyahu in support of their debut album Lost In Paradise, released on Island Empire Records this past February. The album features collaborations with well-known songwriters and producers such as Pooh Bear, Justin Bieber, DJ Flict, and Dwayne “Supa Dups” Chin-Quee. “We are super stoked to be on the ‘Broken Crowns Tour,‘” the band comments, “We’ve been huge fans of Matisyahu since Live at Stubbs and became even more of a fan after meeting him at CaliRoots this past year. So to be on the road with this legend is going to dope AF! We can’t wait!”This tour also marks the first appearance of Orphan, a new Matisyahu-produced project that is guaranteed to give fans a genuine experience of his ever-evolving sound. “Orphan is a new band I signed currently living and making music out of my home,” Matisyahu explains in an official statement, “All three core members–Menachem, Nissin, and Chaim—are sons of Lubavitch Rabbis and met in Yeshiva [Jewish theological school]. They formed a bond around my release at the time of Live at Stubbs 2 (2011) and began to study the sounds of Dub Trio. Of all the music I’ve come across over the years, these 22 year old boys manage to retain the spirit of their Lubavitch heritage while creating music with a fresh Brooklyn edge that is an outgrowth of the Matisyahu sound. I am proud to introduce to you, Orphan, the soundtrack to a generation who never met their rebbe and have had to blaze a new trail.”General ticket onsale for The Broken Crowns Tour begins Friday, July 14th at 10:00am local time. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Tuesday July 11th at 10:00AM local time through Thursday, July 13th at 10:00PM local time.

Long Island Weather: Heavy Rain Forecast Prompts Flood Watch

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Heavy rains and higher-than-usual tides forecast for Long Island over the next few days is expected to cause minor flooding, especially along the Atlantic Ocean-facing beaches on the South Shore, forecasters said.The National Weather Service issued a coastal flood advisory from 7 p.m. Tuesday through midnight when the new moon causes incoming tides to reach up to 1 ½ feet higher than usual for the western half of the Island. The agency also issued a flood watch for the storm that may bring 2-to-4 inches of rain from Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning.“We will be the recipients of the remnants of the same system” that sparked deadly tornadoes across the nation, said Tim Morrin, an Upton-based NWS meteorologist. “All of that violent weather will not be in tact anymore when the system arrives.”The system reportedly claimed 30 lives in Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Iowa as of Tuesday morning, with the death toll expected to continue rising.Showers are expected as the system approaches New York, with the heaviest steady rains forecast for Wednesday afternoon into the evening. Since the slow-moving storm is heading eastbound, the flood watch starts at 2 p.m. in Nassau and 8 p.m. on the East End.A flood watch means that those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action. Drivers should also anticipate flooded roadways. The extra-high tides, northeast winds and heavy rains could combine to make flooding worse in some areas, but the overall flooding is expected to be minor, Morrin said.High tide Tuesday night arrives in Point Lookout at 8:34 p.m., Freeport at 9:31 p.m. and Lindenhurst at 11:14 p.m. Morrin said another coastal flood advisory is possible Wednesday. The agency also warned of minor beach erosion between Coney Island in Brooklyn and Smith Point on the easternmost tip of Fire Island.The weather is also expected to be breezy with areas of patchy fog and temperatures in the 50s though Wednesday before hitting the mid-70s when the skies clear up Thursday and drop back to the 60s for a sunny Friday and Saturday.Morrin noted that rainfall is slightly below average for the month of April, so the Island is not too saturated to absorb some of the coming rain.last_img read more

The one question Netflix uses to ensure an exceptional culture

first_imgYou may know Netflix as a top media entertainment provider with shows like, Orange is the New Black and Stranger Things, but behind this media giant is a high-performance company culture that seeks to attract and retain “stunning colleagues.”Netflix believes in people over process, and promotes freedom, independence, and collaboration. Like many organizations, they have company values that sound great, but the difference is, they actually live by them. Almost a decade ago, some of the secrets of the company’s exceptional culture were revealed in a document that was shared frequently on the Internet. The slide deck, entitled, Netflix Culture: Freedom and Responsibility not only detailed the company values, but also their philosophy on pay, benefits, and what actually makes a great company culture (hint: it’s not free espresso, sushi lunches, and great offices).And it’s anything but traditional. What stood out to me when I first read this document was a structure that managers use called, “The Keeper Test.” Here is the Keeper Test that Netflix managers ask themselves regularly:“Which of my people, if they told me they were leaving, for a similar job at a peer company, would I fight hard to keep at Netflix?”And here’s what they do if someone isn’t on that list:“The other people should get a generous severance now, so we can open a slot to try to find a star for that role.”Many organizations talk about great workplace cultures, cohesive teams, and cross-departmental collaboration. But few companies instill practices that align with this strategy. Few companies take action when someone isn’t measuring up. It’s not what you say, it’s what you do. Talking about great cultures but not taking the necessary actions to create an exceptional culture only breeds mediocrity. Creating an exceptional place to work with stunning colleagues takes courage and consistency.As a leader in your organization, ask yourself these questions:Who is not measuring up to the standards we have in place?Who do I need to give constructive feedback to (that maybe I’ve been avoiding)?Knowing what I know now, who would I not hire again?Knowing what I know now, who should not be in a leadership role?What I am doing as a leader to get in the way of creating an exceptional culture with stunning colleagues (examples include: not giving feedback, not coaching, not giving clear expectations, holding on to an underperforming employee, not modeling the values and attributes that create an exceptional culture)If you want a high performing company, you have to do things differently than most organizations. Mediocre managers and executives breed mediocre cultures. You need bold and courageous leaders who are willing to make the tough decisions for the sake of creating an exceptional culture where stunning colleagues want to work. 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Laurie Maddalena Laurie Maddalena is a dynamic and engaging keynote speaker and leadership consultant.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Invades ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York The Force will be with you, always, especially since Disney-controlled Star Wars’ marketing campaign has become the ultimate power in the galaxy. Hype leading up to Episode VII: The Force Awakens, in theaters Dec. 18, covers every parsec of the media. Monday night was no exception as ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live dedicated a full episode to that galaxy far, far away.From a certain point of view, the highlights were few and far between. Ewok-sized bits of information, most of which fanboys probably already knew, were casually mentioned during the hour-long show.The biggest news was from director J.J. Abrams (Star Trek, Lost). Though reported two days prior, Abrams confirmed with Jimmy Kimmel that The Force Awakens was fully armed and operational as of early Saturday morning.That still left anxious fans to count down 25 days and 10 minutes until the premiere, which may be worse than being slowly digested for over 1,000 years inside a Sarlacc. Kimmel pressed for even a word of new information, which turned out to be the first spoken word in the new film.Here it is.Get ready.“This.”To the roar of the crowd, the mundane pronoun exploded onto a screen in Star Wars’ iconic yellow font, as seen in the film’s opening crawls. Now fans have 25 days to ponder, “’This’ what?”Abrams also brought a never-before-seen 16-second clip, which can be viewed at the end of the Youtube video below.Kimmel and Abrams were later joined by some of the cast members. Daisey Ridley plays Rey, a scavenger living on a desolate planet. John Boyega (Attack the Block) crashes into Rey’s life as Finn, an AWOL stormtrooper. The duo will cross paths with Adam Driver (HBO’s Girls), who wields a three-bladed lightsaber as Kylo Ren. And Carrie Fisher reprises her role as Princess – sorry, General – Leia.The new leads detailed the moments they found out they had been cast in Star Wars.“I was, like, 19,” Carrie Fisher joked, referring to her days of cinnamon-bun hairstyles and underwear-less outfits beginning in 1976.Ridley was at a play, Boyega’s dad didn’t know what Star Wars even was, and Abrams accidentally spoiled Driver’s surprise to his wife, but each shared cute moments that would warm even Darth Vader’s cold, mechanized heart. After all, who wouldn’t be excited to be in a Star Wars film?The cast also emphasized the secrecy surrounding their roles and the film’s production. When asked if it was always him acting beneath his helmeted character, Adam Driver nervously looked at Abrams.The director is known for keeping his projects, especially major productions like Star Trek and now Star Wars, under lock and key. According to Boyega, the cast could only practice their lines at Pinewood Studios in England, where the scripts were not allowed to leave the premises in order to reduce spoiler leaks.Other brief appearances included R2-D2, who whistled and beeped around the set, as well as Harrison Ford, who will return as an aged Han Solo alongside his furry sidekick Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew).We would be honored if Mark Hamill would join us, but the one and only Luke Skywalker was yet again absent.“Where’s Luke?” has become one of the latest questions trending among Star Wars fans, opening the blast doors to speculation about the iconic Jedi’s whereabouts in The Force Awakens as well as his allegiance to the Light and Dark Sides of the Force.It’s got fans talking, though, looking to the future, to the horizon. The hype train isn’t stopping. Last week, EA DICE released a rebooted Star Wars Battlefront to video game consoles. HP unveiled an Empire-themed notebook laptop. Google encouraged users to choose between the Light and Dark Side, the decision altering several Google apps. And North American film fans topped it all off with record-breaking advance ticket presales exceeding $50 million, with a month still left to go.Everything is proceeding as Disney has foreseen.last_img read more

Brisbane homes are getting smarter MORE REAL ESTATE STORIES How this mansion set a new auction recordcenter_img But while deputy premier Jackie Trad was forced to sell her property months later amid concerns over the timing of her purchase — one week before the government announced the winning bidder for the underground Cross River Rail project which she was overseeing at the time — new buyers are looking long term. The Cross River Rail project is a 10.2km rail line from Dutton Park to Bowen Hills, via Albert Street in the CBD. It will include four underground stations and is due for completion in 2024.“What we are seeing is a lot of redevelopment,” Harcourts Property Centre director and auctioneer Sam Devlin said.

The renovated Queenslander has pineapple and banana motifs throughout.Two active bidders took the 5 Flower Street cottage to auction where it became the first Woolloongabba home to sell since Queensland deputy premier Jackie Trad confirmed last week she had offloaded her controversial Woolloongabba cottage.

Established trees line the border of this 304sq m block, giving plenty of shade.“Ninety per cent of the time, the opening bidder buys it,” Mr Devlin said to encourage an opening bid, which came from Cleveland local Derek Grewar at $650,000.“It’s an evolving area,” Mr Grewar said after the auction.“Look up the road at the infrastructure going in, and being so close to town. These are scarce commodities.” Hyatt has chosen Woolloongabba as the site for its first Hyatt hotel in the Brisbane area, marking the return of a Hyatt branded hotel to Queensland. The Hyatt Place hotel will be part of the $700 million South City Square precinct which is down the road from 5 Flower St.West End couple Elise Meakin and John Healy stood next to him and were the only other active bidders on the day.When the property was announced on the market with Mr Grewar in front, Mr Devlin pulled on every emotional string to keep the auction moving.

Put it into a house … Don’t be so defiant, sir. You need to buy real estate, get onto the property ladder. To buy the one you want you’ve got to stretch yourself.”The West End couple looked united rather than defiant and, sticking to their game plan, made no further bid and the property sold to Mr Dewar for $725,000. The large kitchen opens out to the back deck.“That was stressful,” Ms Meakin said.“But once we reached our limit that was it.”The couple were looking to move out of their apartment and try suburbia in the inner city. Mr Dewar was buying the property for his two eldest children who are currently working interstate and overseas.“They’re going to come back to Brisbane and they’ll both work in town, so being here is really good,” he said.“It’s an investment property for them.”The sellers, Pip and Evan Goldman, were in the study during the auction and while they did make an adjustment to their reserve price, they were happy with the sale which saw their property increase by nine per cent ($60,000) in three years.

Gay marriage. Incest. Love who you want – Hollywood Director

first_imgHuffington Post.com 10 Sep 2012Director Nick Cassavetes (“The Notebook,” “Alpha Dog”) debuted his controversial new movie this weekend, but his comments in an interview with TheWrap may well out-shine the project itself. “Yellow” bowed at the Toronto International Film Festival. The movie revolves around Mary, the main character played by Cassavetes’ ex-wife Heather Wahlquist. Mary visits her brother in prison, and the two are, as The Wrap’s Sharon Waxman notes, engaged in a “love affair.”Here are Cassavetes’ thoughts on the plotline:“I have no experience with incest. We started thinking about that. We had heard a few stories where brothers and sisters were completely, absolutely in love with one another. You know what? This whole movie is about judgment, and lack of it, and doing what you want. Who gives a sh*t if people judge you? I’m not saying this is an absolute but in a way, if you’re not having kids – who gives a damn? Love who you want. Isn’t that what we say? Gay marriage – love who you want? If it’s your brother or sister it’s super-weird, but if you look at it, you’re not hurting anybody except every single person who freaks out because you’re in love with one another.”http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/10/nick-cassavetes-incest-who-gives-a-damn_n_1871005.html?utm_hp_ref=gay-voices&ir=Gay%20Voiceslast_img read more
