(born 1963) is an American violinist. She was born in New York City and grew up in Portsmouth, Virginia. Taking violin lessons from an early age, Briggs attended Norfolk State University after graduating from Woodrow Wilson High School in 1981. There, she majored in music education and mass media. By 1983, she was playing with the Virginia Symphony Orchestra, where she remained for the next four years.

Maria Tall Chief: Today's TML Arts' Artist Birthday Elizabeth Marie "Betty" Tall Chief (Osage family name: Ki He Kah Stah Tsa; January 24, 1925 – April 11, 2013) was considered America's first major prima ballerina, and was the first Native American to hold the rank. Almost from birth, Tall Chief was involved in dance, starting formal lessons at age three. When she was eight, her family relocated from her birth home of Fairfax, Oklahoma, to Los Angeles, California, to advance the careers of her and her younger sister, Marjorie. At age 17, she moved to New York City in search of a spot with a major ballet company, and, at the urging of her superiors, took the name Maria Tallchief. She spent the next five years with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, where she met legendary choreographer George Balanchine. When Balanchine co-founded what would become the New York City Ballet in 1946, Tallchief became the company's first star. The combination of Balanchine's difficult choreographing and Tallchief's passionat ...

The following link is the interview I had with Syracuse.com that appeared January 16, 2015. "The Peas Were Cold" View full size"The Peas Were Cold" by Barry Damsky As a High School student, Barry Damsky and a few friends decided to spend a summer waiting tables at a hotel in the Adirondacks. They figured it would be a good way to meet girls, he said, and a fun way to pass a few months. Years later, what happened when they met their supervisor would inspire the title of his recently released book, "The Peas Were Cold." "You have to read to see where that came from," Damsky said. The story of the Adirondacks hotel is just one of the stories that Damsky includes in his memoir, compiled of the best pieces he wrote as a columnist with the Boonville Herald over the course of a dozen years or so. Other stories cover his childhood in Utica; his time at theatrical agencies in New York City and in Los Angeles; his experience as a singer and songwriter in Nashville; and reflections on Syracuse University's national ...
Russian Military Capabilities: The Russian Topol M ICBM is the world's fastest missile at 21 Mach (16,000 miles an hour) and there is no defense. If launched from Moscow, it can hit Washington or New York City in 18 minutes. It can hit Chicago in 18.6 minutes. and 22.8 minutes to Los Angeles. The Russian submarines and the Chinese submarines can launch offshore the United States striking coastal targets within a minute. The Chinese submarines have surfaced next to United States aircraft carriers undetected. If the aircraft carrier could not detect the submarines, it can be deduced that United States land defenses can also not detect the submarines offshore the United States in time. The Chinese and Russian are focusing their naval effort on submarines as surface warships are obsolete as they cannot be defended against contemporary Russian and Chinese missiles and they are out producing us in submarines which is such a vital strategic area. It is important to carefully reread this rewritten analysis demons ...
Part 2 of Mike McNamara - the forgotten Australian Ultrarunner. Once again Mike McNamara disappears from history. He was eventually to wind up in New York City but he does not appear on the city census of 1925. Possibly he did try poultry farming in the Mid-West, however by 1928 he was in New York. Reputedly just before the Trans-America race was announced the failure of a partner he had backed with all his money left him close to penury. We have not managed to discover any details of McNamara’s running and walking career in Australia – neither professional nor amateur. However he must have had some experience as a runner or walker in order to contemplate entering a race which would cover the 3,423-miles from Los Angeles to New York. The suspicion must be that in Australia he did not have the time, energy or inclination to develop his running talent. Remember at the age of 24, he had joined the Australian Imperial Force and soon after been sent overseas. There had been no potential coach to ...
25 Interesting (and Odd) Brooklyn Facts 1) While most people know it as simply Brooklyn, this New York borough also goes by the name Kings County and the “Borough of Homes and Churches.” 2) Brooklyn was originally its own separate city. It was not until the turn of the nineteenth century that Brooklyn merged with the City of New York. Many Brooklyn residents called the move “the Great Mistake of 1898.” 3) Brooklyn has approximately 2.5 million residents, which means if it were to be separated from the rest of New York City, Brooklyn would become the 4th most populous U.S. city. 4) Brooklyn is the 7th most populous county in the United States behind such major cities as Los Angeles and San Diego. 5) While physically located on the island, Brooklyn is not considered a part of Long Island. 6) To make matters more confusing, the Brooklyn History Museum was called the Long Island Historical Society up until the 1980s 7) Brighton Beach is home to the largest concentration of Russian immigrants in New Yo ...

So, a complex merger that started in the middle of September has come to a close! On November 24th, the deal was made official, and we decided to go through the arduous but critically important process of integrating the two companies (nxVenture Capital Ltd, which I was Founder and CEO of, and Müller Global Capital Group, a firm we were already in a very close operational partnership with). So far, it has been FANTASTIC - but exhausting! New offices, new faces, new technology from my side that is extremely innovative and radically different than what Müller Global Capital, a 107 year old very private family-held wealth management firm is used to. But we are getting there, and not just in our operational HQ in Midtown Manhattan, New York City - we also have offices in Los Angeles, London, Singapore, Sydney, Bahrain and Grand Cayman Island. I've truly enjoyed the challenge thus far, and we plan to release the news in a series of public interviews, Press Releases etc etc starting January 2, 2015. It is an ...
is the 3rd largest film production centre in North America, behind New York City & Los Angeles
I know a bit late but now I finally found time and I hope the right words! New York! My final stop in the USA! New York is the biggest city in the USA with 8,3 million habitants with a population density of 10561 habitants per square kilometre! Los Angeles which is the second largest city in the world has a population density of 3122 habitants per square kilometre. That means that New York City has three times more people on a square kilometre than la. And that is visible! The skyline of NYC is magnificent and impressive. One skyscraper after another. The city is always crowded and if you are in a car there is no way to surpass traffic during the whole day (maybe not at 2 a.m. But you'll get the point ;) )! Fortunately the public transportation of NYC is very good and it will take you wherever you want to go in a short time. Trains and underground lines run 24/7 and very frequently. They took me to all the beautiful places I wanted to see when I didn't intend to walk, as usual :). I walked from Manhattan ...

The Chambers Brothers "All Strung Out Over You" From THE TIME HAS COME © 1967 Columbia. Like their West Coast contemporaries Sly and the Family Stone, the Chambers Brothers shattered racial and musical divides to forge an incendiary fusion of funk, gospel, blues, and psychedelia which reached its apex with the perennial 1968 song "Time Has Come Today." The Chambers siblings -- bassist George, guitarist Willie, harpist Lester, and guitarist Joe, all of whom contributed vocals -- were born and raised in Lee County, MS; the products of an impoverished sharecropping family, the brothers first polished their vocal harmonies in the choir of their Baptist church, a collaboration which ended after George was drafted into the army in 1952. Following his discharge he relocated to Los Angeles, where the other Chambers Brothers soon settled as well; the foursome began performing gospel and folk throughout Southern California in 1954, but remained virtually unknown until appearing in New York City in 1965.

Here are ten ways that Los Angeles is better than New York City: 1. The weather Seriously, why would you live anywhere else? It's temperate all year round. Even the two guys I saw in Redondo Beach begging on the median strip were wearing UnderArmour. 2. Doughnuts The East Coast has been ruined by Dunkin' Donuts. Dry cakey biscuit-things and tasteless muffins. Instead, LA has a wide variety of small donut shops. Alonso Duralde says to try out "Bob's Donuts" in the amazing Farmers Market. 3. Malls Speaking of the Farmer's Market, it was amazing, and so was the Grove mall next to it. New York City has no malls. What they call a mall is either the group of useless high-end boutiques by Columbus Circle or the dirty "death mall" by Bryant Park. I loved the malls I saw in Hollywood movies in the eighties: the Sherman Oaks Galleria from "Valley Girl", the Puente Hills Mall from "Back To The Future", the Westside Pavillion from "Clueless". They're all here and they're amazing. 4. Mexican food Thor says that when h ...

MUSIC HISTORY 101 SEPTEMBER 13, 1977 - Born on this day as Fiona Apple McAfee Maggart in Manhattan, New York City: Singer/songwriter/musician/poet FIONA APPLE The daughter of singer Diane McAfee and actor Brandon Maggart, Apple's maternal grandparents were dancer Millicent Green and big band vocalist Johnny McAfee. Her sister sings cabaret under the stage name Maude Maggart, and actor Garett Maggart is her half brother. Growing up, Apple spent her school years in New York City, but spent summers with her father in Los Angeles. Apple was classically trained on piano as a child, and began composing her own pieces by the age of eight. When learning to play piano, she would often take sheet music and translate guitar tablature into the corresponding notes. Apple later began to play along with jazz standard compositions after becoming proficient, through which she discovered Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald, who became major influences on her. Pop music also drew her in to the sounds of the Beatles, Jimi Hen ...
OBAMA:     After High School, Obama moved to Los Angeles in 1979 to attend Occidental College. In February 1981, Obama made his first public speech, calling for Occidental to participate in the disinvestment from South Africa in response to that nation's policy of apartheid.[26] In mid-1981, Obama traveled to Indonesia to visit his mother and half-sister Maya, and visited the families of college friends in Pakistan and India for three weeks.[26] Later in 1981, he transferred as a junior to Columbia College, Columbia University in New York City, where he majored in political science with a specialty in International Relations[27] and lived off-campus on West 109th Street.[28] He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 1983 and worked for a year at the Business International Corporation,[29] then at the New York Public Interest Research Group.[30][31] In 1985, Obama was among the leaders of May Day efforts to bring attention to the New York City Subway system, which was in a bad condition at the time.

Haircuts for the homeless. Every weekend, 30-year-old Mark Bustos wanders the streets of New York to find people who look as though they could do with a haircut and who might otherwise not be able to afford it. His haircuts for the homeless was inspired after taking a trip in May 2012, to his native country of The Philippines where he snipped away on underprivileged kids. He said the trip gave him the idea and momentum to continue the good deeds back in the States. "The feeling was so rewarding, I decided to bring the positive energy back to New York City." He has also done the same for poor people living in Jamaica, Costa Rica and Los Angeles. "I do believe people with a proper, professional haircut receive more respect than those who do not have a proper haircut,' Bustos told Today. Having a proper haircut also gives the recipient much more confidence."
1. Our president is called a Prime Minister. 2. Baltimore, Maryland has more murders in a week than the entire nation of Canada does all year. 3. You don't have to be born in Canada to be Prime Minister. 4. Canadians do not find, "Say 'eh' for me," to be particularly funny. 5. Canada has rednecks, too. 6. We're a lot bigger than you, in land mass, but our population is considerably less. The populations of Los Angeles and New York City would be around 30 million people. The entire nation of Canada has around 32 million people. Due to the fact that most of our country is in the northern latitudes, we huddle close to the border, for warmth. 7. In the War of 1812, we kicked your butts. The reason why your Whitehouse is white is because we set fire to it and it was whitewashed to hide the damage (for propaganda purposes). Some Americans will say that THEY won the war. However, to win, a party must reach their objective. Your objective was to take over British North America (what Canada was called then), our g ...
New York City based Israeli artist Yigal Ozeri is best known for his large-scale cinematic portraits of young women in vast transcending landscapes. His near photo-realistic oil paintings convey the spirit of his subjects in a grand array of natural settings: from abundant rain forests to dreary deserts. Thousands of tiny brushstrokes animate his lifelike paintings, giving way to a remarkable realism, distinct beauty, and seductive power. Ozeri seizes fleeting moments and gives them life. As a result, the viewer is compelled to gaze into the allegorical domain between reality and fantasy. Ozeri has shown extensively around the world including solo exhibits in Bologna, Barcelona, Los Angeles, Toronto, Hong Kong, Amsterdam, France, Denmark, and Munich. His work is included on the cover and in the book Photorealism and the Digital Age. He is currently in a traveling show titled 50 Years of Hyperrealistic Painting that was showcased in a number of venues including: Museum Thyssen-Bornemisza in Madrid, Birming ...

Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel, the man who brought organized crime to the West Coast, is shot and killed on this day in 1947, at his mistress Virginia Hill's home in Beverly Hills, California. Siegel had been talking to his associate Allen Smiley when three bullets were fired through the window and into his head, killing him instantly. Siegel's childhood had been pretty similar to that of other organized crime leaders: Growing up with little money in Brooklyn, he managed to establish himself as a teenage thug. With his pal Meyer Lansky, Siegel terrorized local peddlers and collected protection money. Before long, they had a business that included bootlegging and gambling all over New York City. By the late 1930s, Siegel had become one of the major players of a highly powerful crime syndicate, which gave him $500,000 to set up a Los Angeles franchise. Bugsy threw himself into the Hollywood scene, making friends with some of the biggest names of the time--Cary Grant, Clark Gable, and Jean Harlow. His all-night pa ...
Iraqi Americans live across the U.S. with other hubs of Iraqis living in the Detroit,[7] New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, Phoenix and Washington DC areas. Atlanta has developed a large Iraqi community; so has the state of Texas, primarily in the Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth areas. Over 20,000 Iraqi Americans reside in California (many tens of thousands live in San Diego and Los Angeles areas) but with the most concentrated in the communities of Modesto, Ceres and Turlock in Stanislaus County in Central Valley, mainly are descendants of agricultural laborers invited to work in the US in the 1920s.[citation needed] A quarter of Iraqi refugees to the U.S. settle in San Diego County.[8] In 2010, Iraqis made up about one-quarter of El Cajon's population of 96,000, with an estimated 7,000 Iraqis arriving in 2009. The city is believed to have the second-largest number of Iraqis in the country, most of them Chaldean Christians.[9]

On behalf of the Board of Directors, consultants, and staff of Christopher Street West we would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who participated in this years' LA PRIDE Celebration. It was just over 44 years ago when the Rev's. Troy Perry and Bob Humphries' and community activist Morris Kight, were asked what Los Angeles was going to do to commemorate the Stonewall uprising that had occurred the year before in New York City.

Happy Birthday Gino Vannelli. Gino Vannelli (born June 16, 1952) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, musician and composer. Early years Born in Montreal, Quebec, Vannelli is one of three sons (Joe, Gino, and Ross) born to Russ and Delia Vannelli. Russ, his father, was a big band musician.

Push Across America Ryan Chalmers’ 3,300-mile trip began in Los Angeles and ended in New York. Only he didn’t make the journey on a plane or train; he completed it in his wheelchair. Born with spina bifida and unable to fully use his legs, the 24-year-old wheelchair racer and Paralympian agreed to “Push Across America,” as his campaign was called, to raise awareness about what people with disabilities can accomplish. It took 71 grueling days in which Chalmers endured 13 flat tires and severe muscle pain from pushing his body beyond its usual limits. Yet, as he told Yahoo Sports when he arrived in New York City on June 16, 2013, “You see a little kid at the finish line who’s just smiling at you…it makes the injury and pain go away. For me, that’s what helped me push through.” A film crew documented Chalmers’ trek and he plans to speak about it around the country. His message: “This isn’t supposed to be easy. Not something of this magnitude…But you just have to embrace the di ...

THIS DATE IN HISTORY MAY 30th, 2008: Sex and the City movie released The film version of HBO’s iconic comedy series Sex and the City, starring Sarah Jessica Parker, premieres in more than 3,200 theaters around the country and goes on to become a big box-office success. The Sex and the City TV series, which debuted some 10 years before, was based on the book by the same name by the New York City socialite and writer Candace Bushnell. As conceived by Darren Star (famous for the long-running Fox series Beverly Hills, 90210, about rich and privileged teens growing up in that Los Angeles-area Zip code), the show followed the 30-something sex columnist Carrie Bradshaw (played by Parker, an executive producer of both the series and the movie) and her three very different girlfriends--libidinous Samantha (Kim Cattrall), prim Charlotte (Kristin Davis) and cynical Miranda (Cynthia Nixon)--on their adventures in New York City. Arguably the main drama of the series revolved around Carrie’s on-and-off relationship ...
The Dodgers-Giants rivalry is a sports rivalry between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants ( Better Known As The Halloween Crew ) baseball teams of Major League Baseball (MLB). It is regarded as one of the most competitive and longest-standing rivalries in American baseball, with some observers considering it the greatest baseball rivalry of all time. The rivalry between the Dodgers and Giants began in the late 19th century when both clubs were based in the New York City area. The Dodgers played in Brooklyn (then a separate city, before being incorporated as a borough of Greater New York in 1898) and the Giants played at the Polo Grounds in Manhattan. After the 1957 season, Dodgers owner Walter O'Malley decided to move the team to Los Angeles for financial and other reasons. Along the way, he managed to convince Giants owner Horace Stoneham (who was considering moving his team to Minnesota) to preserve the rivalry by bringing his team to California as well. New York baseball fans were stu ...

Born in Watts, Los Angeles, Sylvester James, Jr. developed a love of singing through the Gospel Choirs of his Pentecostal church. Leaving the congregation after being persecuted for his homosexuality, he was an early founder of a group of black cross-dressers and trans women known as The Disquotays, who disbanded in 1970. Moving to San Francisco, he embraced the counterculture and joined drag troupe The Cockettes, eventually producing solo shows heavily influenced by female blues and jazz singers like Billie Holiday and Josephine Baker. During their critically panned tour of New York City, Sylvester left the Cockettes to focus on his solo career. Fronting Sylvester and his Hot Band, he released two commercially unsuccessful albums on Blue Thumb Records in 1973. Gaining new backing singers in the form of Two Tons O' Fun and Jeanie Tracy, he obtained a recording contract with Harvey Fuqua of Fantasy Records. His first solo album, Sylvester (1977), was a moderate success, and was followed by acclaimed disco ...

THIS DATE IN HISTORY APRIL 3, 1978: Annie Hall beats out Star Wars for Best Picture The rise of the action-adventure blockbuster was on the horizon, but on this night in 1978, the small-scale romantic comedy triumphs over the big-budget space extravaganza. At the 50th annual Academy Awards, held at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles, Woody Allen’s Annie Hall won the Oscar for Best Picture, beating out George Lucas’ Star Wars. Annie Hall was seen as a major turning point for Allen, who made his debut as a triple threat (writer-director-star) with Take the Money and Run (1969) and proved his knack for zany comedy in films like Bananas (1971) and Sleeper (1973). In Annie Hall, Allen blended uproarious comedy with the offbeat and thought-provoking musings on love and relationships that had previously been the stuff of his stand-up comedy and written essays. As the film began, Allen’s Alvy Singer, a New York City comedy writer, ponders the demise of his relationship with the freewheeling singe ...
Arna Bontemps was born in Alexandria, Louisiana, the son of Creole parents. His father was a skilled brick mason who moved his family to Los Angeles when Arna was three years old. Tension developed between father and son when Arna refused to be apprenticed as a mason. He was sent away to a white boarding school in San Fernando with his father's command not to "go up there acting colored." Unhappy at what he saw as his father's effort to make him forget his racial heritage, Bontemps went on to Pacific Union College in Angwin, California, graduating in 1923. A year later, Bontemps began to publish his poetry in magazines such as The Crisis and Opportunity, which encouraged the work of young African American writers. He had hoped to study for a Ph.D. in English, but after his marriage in 1926 and the subsequent birth of six children, he accepted teaching jobs to support his family. In 1926 he moved to New York City to teach at the Harlem Academy for five years, a period in which he was also close to several ...

Getting write ups like this from musicians I have worked with over the years makes it that much more worth it! Carlos Calvo Wrote : 2013 was the most recent of many touring experiences I've enjoyed with Angus Webster and Unearthed Productions. Though all have been successful, 2013’s was by far the best on all fronts. I can say that the level of attention an artist receives on an Angus Webster tour is only equaled by the quality of gigs and venues one can expect to play when being booked by him. The support offered to artists is so wide, ranging from equipment, rehearsal, side musicians, transportation and accommodation. Whatever a traveling musician could possibly need seems to be at the fingertips of Angus Webster. I would describe the service he provides as a Tour Concierge. His knowledge of New England venues is vast and ever expanding. I have been booked as far south as the Hudson River Valley as well as New York City itself. Angus has even booked me in my hometown of Los Angeles! But if you’re pl ...
The distant city landscape engulfed the morning horizon, growing larger by the second. Mohamed was pleased with his mission so far, it was 8.40am and all had gone to plan. From the cockpit of his Boeing 767 he was leading the charge and about to make history. Only twenty minutes before, he and his men had taken forceful control of American Airlines Flight 11 whilst en route from Boston to Los Angeles with ninety two people on board. It would be a big day for Allah. His target finally came into view. The North Tower of the World Trade Centre in New York City was where he would martyr himself. It was time for the American filth to fall and die. He hated the west and he hated America more, they were killing everything and no punishment was ever dealt their way.

The 1992 Los Angeles Riots, also known as the Rodney King Riots, the South Central Riots, the 1992 Los Angeles Civil Disturbance, and the 1992 Los Angeles Civil Unrest, were a series of riots, lootings, arsons and civil disturbance that occurred in Los Angeles County, California in 1992, following the acquittal of police officers on trial regarding a videotaped, and widely covered police brutality incident. They were the largest riots seen in the United States since the 1960s and the worst in terms of death toll after the New York City draft riots in 1863. The riot was first started in South Los Angeles and then eventually spread out into other areas over a six-day period within the Los Angeles metropolitan area in California beginning in April 1992. The riots started on April 29 after a trial jury acquitted four Los Angeles Police Department officers of assault and use of excessive force. The mostly white officers were videotaped beating an African-American man named Rodney King following a high-speed po ...

Police find secret diaries in Philip Seymour Hoffman's home 2014-02-12 16:07 Los Angeles - Philip Seymour Hoffman kept diaries about his battle to stay sober. The late actor, who was found dead in his apartment in New York City from an apparent heroin overdose on 2 February, wrote detailed accounts about his struggle to control his "demons", drug deals and his desire to stay clean by attending Narcotics Anonymous meetings before his death. A source told NBC News: "It's a stream of consciousness and difficult to follow. In one line he refers to 'Frank who always owes money' and on the same page he writes about a 15-year-old girl from Texas. "It seems he did at least part of it in rehab. It definitely contained some soul-searching. But there is also a fair amount of rambling that doesn't make sense." Police officers found two diaries in the Capote star's home and some of the hand-written entries were made during Philip's last stint in rehab last year. The star of The Hunger Games reportedly fell off the wag ...

Christopher George Latore Wallace ( May 21, 1972 – March 9, 1997 ), best known as The Notorious B.I.G., Biggie or Biggie Smalls, was an American rapper. Wallace was raised in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. When he released his debut album Ready To Die in 1994, he became a central figure in the East Coast Hip - Hop scene and increased New York's visibility in the genre at a time when West Coast Hip - Hop was dominant in the mainstream. The following year, Wallace led his childhood friends to chart success through his protégé group, Junior M.A.F.I.A. While recording his second album, Wallace was heavily involved in the growing East Coast / West Coast Hip - Hop feud. On March 9, 1997, Wallace was killed by an unknown assailant in a drive - by shooting in Los Angeles.

Hollis told ESPN.com Wednesday that all four schools, their coaches and athletic directors have confirmed their participation. "It's a very cool idea," Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said Wednesday.

It's three big games in a row, and with the ACC-Big Ten Challenge and other events [Champions Classic] we could have six or seven big games." Izzo said the uniqueness of this event is the camaraderie with the players and ...

Lifestyle[edit] Brando earned a "bad boy" reputation for his public outbursts and antics. According to Los Angeles magazine, "Brando was rock and roll before anybody knew what rock and roll was".[62] His behavior during the filming of Mutiny on the Bounty (1962) seemed to bolster his reputation as a difficult star. He was blamed for a change in director and a runaway budget, though he disclaimed responsibility for either. On June 12, 1973, Brando broke paparazzo Ron Galella's jaw. Galella had followed Brando, who was accompanied by talk show host *** Cavett, after a taping of The *** Cavett Show in New York City.

Today's trivia: Unlike Betty Crocker, Famous Amos is an actual person, and one with an unlikely success story. When he was young, Wally Amos learned to cook from his aunt and attended the Food Trades Vocational High School in New York City. He later served time in the Air Force, attended college, and took a clerical job with the William Morris Agency. He would become the agency’s first African-American talent agent. Seeking to differentiate himself from the crowd, he would send prospective clients homemade chocolate chip cookies. The cookies were a hit, and with $25,000 loans from singers Marvin Gaye and Helen Reddy, he opened his first “Famous Amos” storefront in Los Angeles in 1975. Amos made delicious cookies, but proved a poor businessman, and was forced to sell off his brand in 1988 for $3 million. His career has since rebounded, and he now sells a line called “Uncle Wally’s Muffins,” gives motivational speeches, and even appeared on an episode of The Office.

Did you know? Democrats in New York City, who outnumber Republican voters by more than six to one, had a bittersweet New Year. As the ball dropped in Times Square, the city’s last progressive talk radio station went silent, flipping its format to Spanish music and leaving liberal voices out in the cold in the nation’s top broadcast market. WWRL bade farewell to veteran hosts Ed Schultz, Thom Hartmann, Randi Rhodes, and Alan Colmes, extending a coast-to-coast wave of progressive stations sinking in a sea of listener apathy— especially in big liberal cities. The same day, Clear Channel’s KTLK, the last liberal-dominated talk station in Los Angeles, the nation’s No 2 market, flipped Rhodes, Stephanie Miller, Bill Press, and David Cruz for conservative talkers Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity. The company’s KNEW in San Francisco did the same, booting liberal voices for more conservative ones. And talk stations here in Portland, Ore., and up north in Seattle, Wash., said goodbye to their ...

"Mother Time" An old woman huddled in the corner of a park bench in New York City...Chicago...Los Angeles...Louisville. 2013 had been a rough year and worse than that for her since she was that year on the last day of tattered old 2013. I approached her not knowing who she was and asked: "Are you all right? It's cold and you have no coat. May I give you mine?" "It's too late for that," she replied. "I'm very tired and I've only a few hours to live." "Who are you, then," I asked. "I am the year 2013," she said. I was not as surprised as I should have been though she didn't fit the stereotype. She had no scythe and, of course, no long white beard and she was the "wrong" sex but I could tell that she had lived her entire life in one short year. I knew without being told that she had started the year looking like a young Shirley Temple. By June she had grown into Natalie Wood (or Jennifer Lawrence if you like) and now she looked as ancient and magnificently gargoylesque as Betty Friedan and as bea ...

Strike! SOME PPL CAME OUT TO PROTEST LOW PAY. Thousands of fast food and retail workers went on strike across the US on Thursday in a signal of the growing clamour for action on income equality. In Chicago, hundreds of protesters gathered outside a McDonalds at 6.15am. As a large "Christmas Grinch" ambled about in freezing temperatures, demonstrators chanted for the minimum wage to be increased to $15 per hour. It was the first of nine strikes in Chicago, with employees at McDonalds, Wendy's, Walgreens, Macy's and Sears also due to walk off shift. Low wage workers were due to strike across 100 cities through the day, including Boston, Detroit, New York City, Oakland, Los Angeles and St Louis. "To put it in perspective, yesterday I got paid, today I have not a dollar in my pocket," said Akilarose Thompson, 24. She was on strike from the McDonalds in Chicago's West Town – the scene of Thursday morning's protest that kicked off actions around the city. Thompson has worked at McDonalds for almost a year, se ...

FACT'S OF THE DAY-MEGADETH * Dave Mustaine formed Megadeth after he was fired from Metallica in 1983. Metallica abruptly let Mustaine go after recording their debut album in New York City, so he was forced to take a Greyhound bus home to Los Angeles. In the terminal, Mustaine found a political pamphlet from California Senator Alan Cranston that said, "The arsenal of megadeath can't be rid," and thought "Megadeth" would make a great song title. That song turned into "Set The World Afire" from the 1988 album So Far, So Good… So What!, but Megadeth became the name of his new band. * There was a lot of animosity when Mustaine left Metallica, and although he told them not to use any of his work, Metallica did anyway, since he was still with the band when he recorded it. You can hear his playing on 4 songs from the Kill 'Em All album and two more from Ride the Lightning. He also claims that Metallica's 1986 track "Leper Messiah" contains his work. * In the early stages of Megadeth, current Slayer guitarist Ke ...

My father was from Utah and my mother from Wisconsin. Before their eighteen birthdays both of them had spread their wings and recreated themselves as urban cosmopolitans, my mother claiming New York City as her domain and my father decamping to Los Angeles after their divorce. When I was growing up, Utah and Wisconsin were fly-over states that I only saw from an airplane seat as I flew between New York and California, and I never once stepped foot in either one of them. However, both Utah and Wisconsin were very much part of my family history, mythology and lore that I absorbed as a child. Utah was the land of my Mormon pioneer paternal ancestors , some of whom crossed the plains in wagon trains in the 1850’s to the Great Salt Lake Valley and some of whom joined the Mormon Church in Denmark in the 1870’s and sailed across the ocean to join the Saints in Utah. Wisconsin was the land where my Catholic and Lutheran maternal ancestors settled after they left Northern Europe for America. Ten year ...
Cyber Monday saw record sales this year: U.S. shoppers made Cyber Monday the biggest online shopping day in history this year, with a 20.6 percent increase in online sales, according to the International Business Machines Corp. (IBM). Cyber Monday (the first Monday after Thanksgiving Day) earned its moniker by being the day on which many consumers return to work from the Thanksgiving holiday and begin ordering Christmas gifts online at their desks. Mobile sales led the way, slightly exceeding 17 percent of total online sales, a year-over-year increase of 55.4 percent, the firm reports. The average order value on Cyber Monday was $128.77, down 1 percent year on year, IBM reports. New York City took the top spot for total online retail sales on Cyber Monday. Rounding out the top five were Washington, Los Angeles, Chicago and Atlanta, in that order.
Rodrigo is the son of Jiu-Jitsu Grandmaster Reylson Gracie and grandson of the founder of Jiu-Jitsu in Brasil, Carlos Gracie. Rodrigo began training Jiu-Jitsu at the age of 4. Rodrigo Started teaching Gracie Jiu-Jitsu at age 12 and was awarded the black belt at the age of 18 under his father.

He was there assisting his cousin, but our interactions were somewhat limited. Over the next few years we crossed paths in a similar fashion a few more times. My first chance to spend any amount of time with him was after I moved away from my instructor, Charles ...
THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! I just heard on the news that they are going to "temporarily displace" The Billy Goat Tavern made famous by John Belushi on SNL in his "Cheezborger! Cheezborger!" skit. Apparently there are going to be "building renovations." In other words...the original Billy Goat Tavern, around since the 1930's, is going the way of Riverview Park, the Berghoff Restaurant, Maxwell Street, and Charlie Trotter (RIP). This is a place where you could often find a famous Chicagoan like Royko, Terkel, and yes, Belushi, sharing the bar with "Joe the Plumber" and "Sam the Cabbie." Yeah, it's a "dump," but so is Wrigley Field...and that's been awarded "Landmark Status." Chicago is "The City that Works," and "The City of Big Shoulders." Chicago is NOT New York City nor (shudder) Los Angeles." Can't you fools leave anything alone? The Billy Goat is a Chicago icon...go spend that money burning a hole in your pocket to feed the hungry and house the homeless! I'm only glad that I had an opportunity to tak ...

'05 Profile: Kaitlin (Jaxheimer) Descovich I have lived in New York City since graduation in 2005. For the first years I was fortunate to have a wonderful '05 roommate, the wonderful Carolyn Steinmetz, who now lives in Los Angeles. I was a corporate public relations executive at Weber Shandwick where I worked with Fortune 1000 companies and their CEOs and other executives to help elevate their corporations' brands through media interviews. Then, in 2010 I took a break from the corporate role to go to New York Law School. During my time at NYLS I tried to take advantage of many opportunities to enjoy being a student again, and I was the Editor in Chief of the Law Review during my last year of school. Most importantly, I met my husband, Brian, at NYLS. He was a year ahead of me and we were competing against each other in a negotiation competition. Once he asked me out after our law school "prom" a few weeks later, we have basically never been apart. We were married on August 23rd, a few weeks after I ...
Numbers Show Homeless Problem is Getting Better in New Orleans.- By Adrien Alpendre, Esq. As an adopted New Orleanian and French-American to boot it pleases me to report that some major progress when it comes to getting a hold on the homeless crisis is being made in New Orleans. In contrast to what's happening in every major USA city (New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Orlando in that order) where homelessness is increasing in an almost geometrical proportion, homelessness in our BIG EASY is decreasing dramatically. Numbers released this morning by the organization, UNITY of Greater New Orleans, show the area is making headway tackling the post Katrina epidemic. Since the organization did its last study in 2010, the homeless rate has dropped in New Orleans and Jefferson Parish 12-percent, going from more than 11,000 homeless to now about 9,200. “If you look though at the people who are in the most dire homeless situations, who are actually lying on the street, in aban ...

Tom Cruise spends USD 50,000 a week for daughter Suri's safety Press Trust of India | Updated: June 29, 2013 15:04 IST Los Angeles: Hollywood star Tom Cruise reportedly pays USD 50,000 per week on bodyguards to ensure daughter Suri's safety. Tom Cruise, 50, is said to be happy in spending huge amount to ensure security cover 24x7 over his seven-year-old daughter Suri while she lives with her mother Katie Holmes in New York City, reported Contactmusic. "Tom is always surrounded by two rings of plain clothed security agents. That goes double for his precious daughter. Katie believes money is no object when it comes to the safety of Suri and insisted Tom handle that side of things. She'd go broke if she had to pay for it and it's a total necessity with the enormous interest in Suri," a source said. "These guys are highly trained. They legally carry weapons. When in LA they keep guns in the trunks of Katie's SUV limos. When in New York, they have licenses to carry firearms on their person," the source added. ...
Ken Price Sculpture: A Retrospective at The Metropolitan Museum of Art June 18-September 22, 2013 Ken Price, a Los Angeles artist, died on February 24, 2012 at the age of 77.

I get nostalgic when I remember the euphoria and pride I felt 43 years ago when I marched with the *** Liberation Front as part of the first Christopher Street West (CSW) *** pride parade in Los Angeles. Our militancy in GLF had been greatly inspired by the anti-war movement, the civil rights struggles and the women’s movement starting in the 1960s. By 1970 many *** people were fed up with how we were being treated in society and felt it was our time to rise up and challenge the forces of oppression and violence arrayed against us. We chose June 28, 1970 to have our CSW *** Pride March in order to commemorate the Stonewall *** riots that had broken out on Christopher Street a year earlier, in the Greenwich Village section of New York City. Most of us called ourselves *** but we were always a diverse group of *** men, *** transsexuals, transvestites, bisexuals and street kids. I joined the L.A. *** Liberation Front in early 1970 and immediately found myself in a ferment of male energy and a ...
From the Stage to the Screen: The 6 Greatest Adaptations By Rachel Jacobs This Friday, Daisy von Scherler Mayer’s “Some Girl(s)” will open in theaters in New York City and Los Angeles. The film, which is based on Neil LaBute’s play of the same name, follows an unnamed man (Adam Brody) as he travels around the country, looking to make amends with ex-girlfriends from old relationships that turned sour. This, in the days leading up to his wedding. LaBute, known for his merciless dissection of the male sex, returns to recycled themes and signature, austere portraits in what is sure to be an uncomfortable dismemberment of masculinity and examination of gender relations. LaBute brought his screenwriting talents to the adaptation, but a strong play does not necessarily make for a strong film adaptation. That said, when done correctly the result can be unforgettable — as the case may be with “Some Girl(s).” Below are our picks for the six greatest, most unforgettable stage to screen adaptations. “ ...

I can't say that I had any appreciation for art at all when I was in my teens. Growing up as a person who enjoyed music and poetry rather than anything that related to visual aesthetics, I had always mocked art. I was uncultered, and if anything, was very angry. My daily routine consisted of hanging out in the coffee shop with my friend, Max. There we would mock the "hipsters" who debated politics and ethics, and oddly enough I would befriend an artist named Sia, being one of those hipsters who is currently a Los Angeles resident, and artist, and one can even say one of the mentor-like figures in my life, besides Bradly Brunet, a musician known by his stage name of "DJ Atek" who I'd consider a respectable composer in the drum and bass music scenes in New York City, New Orleans, and Los Angeles.   As said before, I had always loved poetry. Its something I hold dear to my heart as a writer. I remember being 15 and reciting Poe or Emily Bronte by memory. I had always fallen head over heals over a girl who k ...

Within the last few years, there’s been a noticeable change in the electronic-industrial scene. A shift away from what many claim as broken-down and burned out sounds that have become all too commonplace in club environments. There’s a rebirth and revolution taking place and it’s happening right under your noses and within earshot. It was fostered in New York City and Los Angeles, continues with healthy scenes in San Francisco and spread to Canada, the United Kingdom, Greece, Germany, France and even Russia. It’s also building right here in Detroit.  Surprisingly, this new scene developing is actually built upon the foundations already established in the classic goth, new wave, techno,  and electronic body music (EBM) scenes. With an admiration, respect and fondness for those days-gone-by sounds, new bands are evolving those familiar and formerly fading genres into a fresh and modern counterpart.   But are you aware and taking notice? Here’s why you SHOULD be interested - club patron, DJ and/ ...

“City Of Angels was a very personal song, obviously, about a specific place: Los Angeles. But it could be … well, when I was a younger kid, it was New York City. That was the place where I went to make my dreams come true, at that time to be a painter, an artist. I was in art school and New York was the place where you went to makes those things come alive. And as I got older, I started studying film and I came out to Los Angeles. But it could be Paris, it could be Shanghai, it could be San Francisco, Palo Alto, anywhere. A place where you go to realize yourself and your dreams.” — Jared Leto about “City of Angels” - notes from VyRT *sonya*

His father, Andrew Rushing, was a trumpeter and his mother, Cora, and brother were singers.

No one believed him. The Rains came, whole earth, left fossils on the top of Mount Everest, and all over the world, created different layers of soil, (some not even in the same order as you dig creators in the ground in different place), left giant massive decomposing pits of vegetation; dead animals & humans; (we refer to as crude oil pockets in the ground), left colossal openings in the oceans, (we refer to as trenches, the Bible refers to them as Springs of Water in, [Rev. 14:7]), left giant cannons throughout the who ...

Nice job, Los Angeles. Here in New York City, instead of trying to streamline traffic, our Department of Transportation is busy with more important things, like re-naming the appropriately named Triborough Bridge to the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge (?), turning part of Broadway permanently over to lawn chairs, and removing lanes of traffic on major thoroughfares in Manhattan for bicycles. For the elderly or infirm, who are not well enough to ride a bicycle in Manhattan, you are S.O.L., and have to sit in more congested pollution-generating traffic. (I think that term is found under "S" in Black's Law Dictionary.) - In this Wednesday, April 24, 2013 photo, traffic signals and vehicles are seen on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles. The nation's most congested city has become a model for traffic control. With the flip of a switch earlier this year, Los Angeles became a worldwide leader by synchronizing all of its nearly 4,400 stoplights, making it the world's first major city to do so.

The U.S. State Department has denied Iranian media reports that the United States deported the Iranian wrestling team ahead of a Sunday meet in Los Angeles.
