I’m old enough to remember the early days of YouTube. I know it sounds funny, but it’s been 16 years since the iconic social media video site – launched before we even HAD the term “social media” – gave everyone the ability to record what they wanted and show it to the world.

In fact, the service has become known for cat videos. And I actually wondered, soon after it was up and running, if that was all it was going to be good for… silly, funny videos and not much else. Of course, I was wrong and I knew it in no time.

SURPRISES FOR THE MILITARY FAMILY — YOUTUBE CLASSICS

It wouldn’t be many years before ANOTHER kind of video would regularly produce viral clips… of military parents or older siblings coming home and surprising their kids or siblings, as the case may be. . And once you saw ONE, you looked for more.

Talk about hours of entertainment, right? You can not be wrong. What strikes me is that some of the clips in this compilation are so old that some of these kids are probably adults now.

LOUISVILLE MILITARY DAD SURPRISES HIS SON

Again, it never gets old and it just happened again and this time in Louisville. Joshua Newby is a 7 year old boy who plays football for the River City Renegade. He THOUGHT his father was serving overseas in Africa. He WAS, of course, but not that day:

Jordan Lee Newby serves in the Air Force National Guard and has been stationed in Africa from December 2021. It appears he has decided to put his plans to return home with his son on hold.

I support the decision. I think we all do. Of course, Joshua too. It is obvious that it will be a very happy Thanksgiving in the Newby house this year.

But now there’s another reason to plan a visit to Sonflour, the little Italian restaurant on Castle Street.

Late last month, the restaurant announced a new sustainably sourced menu item: a monthly acoustic concert featuring local artists and musicians called “Music from the Sofa.”

The owners, friends Lorenzo Barba and Eugenio Nobile, have always envisioned Sonflour as “a new place of community, dedicated to a process of continuous growth in the city, promoting cultural activities and events aimed at social and environmental awareness”.

Next month, Galway performer and songwriter Emily Donoghue will take her seat on the sofa for another edition of Music from the Sofa to celebrate the restaurant’s first anniversary.

“Kaleidoscopic sounds and a fierce passion for detail have defined the 26-year-old’s musical journey so far,” the restorers said on Instagram.

“Playing domestically and overseas since the age of 12, Donoghue currently splits her time as a touring musician with various bands (TOUCAN, Billow Wood, Paddy Dennehy).”

You can expect a full set filled with folk classics and soulful melodies from the artist: “Freshly back from a six-week German tour, she will play a set of soul and folk classics as well as previously unreleased originals that have emerged over the last few years.”

The concert begins at 9 p.m. on Thursday, December 1. Walk-ins at night will be accepted, but be sure to arrive early as capacity is limited.

Comment

It was a day that was met with a hint of dread. On Sunday, the country’s oldest president takes another very unwelcome milestone, and no one really wants to celebrate. Even President Biden himself.

“Someone said my birthday was coming up,” he recently said. “And I said, ‘No, it has to be someone else. “”

When asked separately in a radio interview what an 80-year-old Biden would say to a 50-year-old Biden, he immediately replied, “That I’m still 50!”

“I can’t even say that number, 80,” he added. “I’m serious. I don’t feel this any more than I would get out from behind this desk and fly away.

The White House has few plans to mark the historic anniversary in a major public way. Any celebration will be overshadowed, by design or not, by the wedding festivities of Biden’s granddaughter, Naomi, at the White House on Saturday.

At a time when Biden’s age keeps cropping up in focus groups and surveys, the fact that he is now the first octogenarian in the Oval Office is something few in the president’s orbit care to point out. It comes as he plans to stand for re-election – which, if he wins, would put him at 82 when inaugurated and 86 at the end of a second term.

At the same time, any appearance of an urgent attempt to downplay or ignore her birthday could carry its own risks. Biden’s decision to downplay the occasion runs counter to some of his predecessors, who have embraced such moments during their tenure.

When Ronald Reagan — until Biden, the nation’s longest-serving president — turned 70, celebratory moments unfolded throughout the day. Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill and other congressional leaders sang to him in the Oval Office. Nancy Reagan helped plan an East Room party featuring Frank Sinatra and Jimmy Stewart.

Reagan, whose advanced age was a dominant issue during the presidential campaign, took the approach of embracing his age, with a tinge of humor. “I want to thank you for starting my 31st birthday celebration of my 39th birthday,” he joked.

President Barack Obama celebrated his 50th birthday with staff burgers for lunch and a White House party that included performances by R&B artist Ledisi, jazz musician Herbie Hancock and legendary singer Stevie Wonder.

If Reagan’s welcome of Sinatra and Stewart nodded to an old-fashioned America, Obama’s guest list signaled his identification with a cooler, younger part of the culture, as attendees understood rapper Jay-Z, comedian Chris Rock and basketball icons Charles Barkley and Grant Hill.

Some presidents didn’t need a milestone birthday to mark the occasion: Franklin D. Roosevelt, on his 52nd birthday, hosted a toga party at the White House, dressing as Caesar while first lady Eleanor Roosevelt went to Oracle of Delphi.

When Dwight D. Eisenhower turned 70, he threw an outdoor party, planted a memorial red oak tree, and listened to a crowd of 6,000 sing “Happy Birthday, Dear Ike.” “There were times when, emotionally agitated, he couldn’t trust his voice,” The New York Times reported.

According to his own account, Eisenhower was moved not only by emotion but also by fear of growing old. “The idea of ​​retirement is sometimes terrifying,” he confided that day. (He also said, “Nobody should ever sit in that office over 70, and I know that.”)

Biden is in a different position from those predecessors. His age – and by implication the idea that he may have lost a stage – is a major part of the Republican attacks on him as he weighs his re-election. It has already played into some Democrats’ private discussions that he should step down for a new generation.

Even so, Biden is not the first president to shy away from celebrating. Thomas Jefferson reportedly remarked that he only believed in celebrating one birthday – the nation’s, July 4th.

“I have refused to make known my own birthday and I have engaged my family not to communicate it”, he wrote in 1803.

James K. Polk, the first president to turn 50 while in office, didn’t even realize it was his birthday until he heard a sermon in church that day , say historians.

Biden, on the other hand, has found himself pushing questions about his age throughout his presidency. Kevin O’Connor, Biden’s doctor, deemed Biden “fit for duty” but also noted last year that the president’s gait had become “steeper and less fluid” since the 2020 election, highlighting a case of spinal arthritis and the lingering effects of a broken foot.

Biden said it’s fair for people to ask about his age, but he also seeks to downplay any concerns by jogging to stages, touting his accomplishments and telling voters, “Look at me.”

Andrew Bates, the White House deputy press secretary, highlighted that phrase, along with a slew of accomplishments in Biden’s first two years, including better-than-expected midterm results. “Keep watching,” he said.

Biden has been prickly on the age issue for some time. At an event in Iowa during his presidential campaign, an 83-year-old farmer pointedly questioned his age, telling the then 77-year-old candidate, “I’m 83, and I know full well that I don’t have the mental faculties that I did 30 years ago.

“I’m not sedentary,” Biden said, growing increasingly angry. “Wanna check my form, man, let’s do push-ups together here, man. Let’s run. Let’s do what you wanna do. Let’s do an IQ test. Okay?”

But he also sometimes used his age as a punchline.

“The very first president to attend the White House Correspondents’ Dinner was Calvin Coolidge in 1924. I had just been elected to the United States Senate,” Biden said in April, during this year’s version of this having dinner. “I remember telling him, ‘Cal, be yourself. Get up and speak from your heart. You’re going to be awesome, kid.

Biden has often told the story of Satchel Paige, the baseball player who pitched a winning game at age 47 and was later approached by reporters. He even told the story to Pope Francis last year.

“They came in and said, ‘Satch, no one’s ever had a win at 47. How do you feel about getting a win on your birthday? ‘” Biden told Francis, according to video from the event. “And he looked at them and he said, ‘Boys, that’s not how I look at age. I see it this way: How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were? »

Biden then looked at the Pope, who is almost six years older than Biden.

“You’re 65, I’m 60,” he said. “God loves you.”

Biden likes to mark other people’s birthdays, if not his own. A few weeks ago, he recorded a video excitedly wishing comedian and TV host Joy Behar a happy birthday as she beat Biden to turn 80.

In 2016, when Obama turned 55, Biden tweeted: “A brother to me, best friend forever,” along with an image of friendship bracelets.

When in office, Biden and Obama often gave each other birthday presents. “It’s tough, but since we both love golf, we usually give each other something to do with golf,” Biden told TMZ in 2013. “I gave him a real unique golf bag the last time, and he gave me this really cool thing. practice putting. It’s a little gadget. It’s really great.”

When Harris turned 57 last year, Biden came to her office and presented her with flowers and a framed photo of them together.

As for Biden’s own birthday last year, Biden’s brother Jimmy gave him a purebred German Shepherd, whom the Bidens named Commandant.

During a birthday while he was a senator, he asked then-Majority Leader Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) to defer some votes so he could take the Amtrak train. to return to Delaware and see his family, however briefly. .

“My daughter is really upset that I can’t be home for the birthday cake she made for me,” Biden recalled telling Dole.

So he took the train home and got off around 6:30 p.m. His wife and daughter were standing on the platform with the cake and the candles.

“I blew them up. Gave me a kiss,” Biden recalled last year as he marked Amtrak’s 50th anniversary. “I crossed over and headed south.”

3 shares in the news because of Ye, FKA Kanye West https://schlammpeitziger.com/3-shares-in-the-news-because-of-ye-fka-kanye-west/ Wed, 02 Nov 2022 08:13:11 +0000 https://schlammpeitziger.com/3-shares-in-the-news-because-of-ye-fka-kanye-west/ The controversial American rapper formerly known as Kanye West has recently brought attention back to how the corporate world responds to social issues.

The controversial American rapper formerly known as Kanye West has recently brought attention back to how the corporate world responds to social issues. The erratic musician, who also goes by the name Ye, recently unleashed a tirade of offensive comments that created a storm on social media and received backlash from advocacy groups.

The incident shed light on how companies react to their celebrities and public opinion. Some corporate giants (including the three listed below) have severed business ties with West and his entertainment and fashion empire, despite the resulting loss of millions of dollars in profits.

For investors who like to invest based on headlines, you may want to consider stocks of the following companies, which are currently trading at a price below our fair value estimates.

The German sportswear juggernaut Adidas (ADDYY) designs, develops, produces and markets sportswear, footwear, accessories and equipment for sport and leisure. Its fashion brands include Ivy Park and Y-3. Adidas sells its products in more than 160 countries through stores and e-commerce sites.

Adidas last week severed ties with rapper Kanye West over his social media comments. Adidas said in a public statement that it would end production of Yeezy-branded products, a partnership between the shoe company and West, and halt all payments to Ye and his companies with immediate effect.

“After months of speculation and mounting public pressure, Adidas has given Kanye West (Ye) what he wants and has ended their hitherto successful partnership,” a Morningstar stock report read, adding that “Although this decision has recently become inevitable, its impact will be more severe than expected as Adidas has ended production of all Yeezy products and stopped paying royalties.

The immediate impact is expected to be 250 million euros ($246 million) on Adidas’ fourth-quarter net profit, the report adds.

While Adidas offers limited information on Yeezy’s sales and profitability, the impact of the discontinuation of the Yeezy product line on results in future years could be “murky but significant”, says analyst David Swartz Morningstar stock, which recently reduced the fair value of the stork in the United States. $93 per ADR instead of US$105, “due to his misfortunes in greater China and the sudden termination of the Yeezy contract”.

Clothing retailer Gap (GPS) sells clothing, accessories and personal care products under the Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic and Athleta brands. Old Navy accounts for more than half of Gap’s sales. The company operates stores around the world and has e-commerce sites.

After the Kanye West controversy erupted, Gap issued a statement saying that “anti-Semitism, racism and hatred in any form are inexcusable and will not be tolerated in accordance with our values. In the name of our customers, employees and shareholders, we partner with organizations that fight against hate and discrimination.”

Gap took immediate action to remove Yeezy Gap products from its stores and shut down YeezyGap.com.

The resulting loss of business adds to the retailer’s woes, including higher inventory, lower operating margins, inflation, logistical challenges and a strong US dollar. However, positive signs are emerging. “In recent weeks, shipping has shown signs of normalization and gasoline prices have fallen,” a Morningstar stock report said. “Additionally, we expect inventory levels to improve as manufacturers cancel shipments and sales increase over the holiday season.”

The benefits of investments in supply chains and other operations by many apparel companies, including gap, will pay off and become more apparent in 2023, the report says.

Despite widespread pessimism in the market, “now is a good time to consider the many apparel stocks that are trading well below our fair value estimates,” Swartz says.

Swartz recently lowered the fair value of the stock to US$25 from US$26, due to weaker results in the second quarter of 2022, primarily due to inventory issues at Old Navy.

US banking giant JPMorgan Chase (JPM) is one of the largest and most complex financial institutions in the country, with nearly $4 trillion in assets. The bank operates four major segments: retail and community banking, corporate and investment banking, commercial banking, and asset and wealth management. The bank has a global footprint.

JPM recently ended its relationship with Kanye West and his clothing brand Yeezy Inc, prompted by his numerous offensive comments. JPMorgan Chase, which has joined other companies in distancing itself from West is arguably the most dominant bank in the United States.

“The bank’s combination of scale, diversification, and sound risk management seems like a straightforward path to competitive advantage, but few other companies have been able to execute a similar strategy,” says a Morningstar report. on stocks.

The financial juggernaut enjoys an unrivaled combination of scale and reach that underpins its wide moat. “Given the bank’s higher capital levels, scale and reach with technology changes, and robust fee income, JPMorgan will consistently earn returns above its cost of equity of 9.5% throughout. cycle,” said Morningstar strategist Eric Compton, which places the stock. fair value at US$146, calling it “one of our top picks among US banks.”

Ye (formerly known as Kanye West)’s anti-Semitism predates the current controversy surrounding the rapper, as he wanted to name his 2018 album after Adolf Hitler, CNN reported Thursday.

CNN cited several unnamed sources close to the artist, including a business executive who said Ye would “praise Hitler by saying how amazing it was that he was able to amass so much power and talk of all the great things he and the Nazi Party did for the German people.

The executive quit his role with Ye over workplace complaints (including harassment) and reached a settlement with the musician, according to CNN.

Rather than “Hitler”, the 2018 album was eventually released as “Ye”.

On Tuesday, film and TV studio MRC announced it would be ending plans to distribute its recently completed Kanye West-themed documentary.

Professional athletes Jaylen Brown and Aaron Donald also quit Donda Sports, Ye’s agency, following the anti-Semitic remarks.

Forbes reported that Ye’s net worth rose from $2 billion to $400 million after German sporting goods giant Adidas ended its “Yeezy” brand partnership with the rapper.

The post How To Watch Weird: The Al Yankovic Story appeared first on Consequence.

Given the recent increase in biopics related to musicians, it’s only fitting that an acclaimed performer by “Weird Al” Yankovic is next on the list. But in typical Weird Al fashion, this “documentary” will take a satirical take on the parody singer’s career.

With Eric Appel taking over as director for the screenplay co-written by Yankovic, Bizarre: the story of Al Yankovic stars Daniel Radcliffe as the famous parody songwriter, alongside Rainn Wilson, Evan Rachel Wood, Julianne Nicholson and more.

However, until its upcoming release, the comedy will not be available through traditional platforms. So, here’s how to watch the upcoming feature film Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.

where can i watch Weird?

Like many novelties, Bizarre: the story of Al Yankovic will not be present in any room when it is released. It will instead be released as a streaming exclusive, however, it will not be found on popular sites like Netflix or Hulu. Instead, the fake biopic will premiere on the Roku Channel as an original movie for the platform.

Do I need a Roku device to watch?

Although the movie can only be found on the Roku channel, viewers won’t need a streaming device or Roku player to watch it. You’ll need a Roku account, but signing up for the Roku Channel is free and can be done from smart TVs, extender devices like Amazon’s TV Fire Stick, or non-TV devices like phones or laptops.

Is it free to watch?

Because the Roku channel is ad-supported, Bizarre: the story of Al Yankovic will be free to watch as soon as it is released. However, not all countries can stream the movie as the Roku channel only has a presence in the US, UK, and Canada.

Why the Roku Channel?

Yankovic said The New York Times that “Roku was the only company to pull out its checkbook. Thanks to them, this film is being made.

David Eilenberg, head of originals for Roku, noted that because Roku doesn’t produce as many shows as a site like Netflix, creators will have the opportunity for their work to “spend the day in the sun.”

“There’s only one Roku Originals slate,” Eilenberg told The New York Times. “Creators are going to be taken care of.”

When will it be available to stream?

Bizarre: the story of Al Yankovic will premiere on November 4, 2022. The film previously debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 8, 2022, where it received the festival’s Audience Award for the Midnight Madness category. Result critic Sarah Kurchak gave the film an A grade in her review, writing that “Weird is a shamelessly ridiculous, over-the-top game that’s sold by people who are completely, sincerely, and unerringly committed on every level.

Radio station releases statement of apology for playing Steel Panther https://schlammpeitziger.com/radio-station-releases-statement-of-apology-for-playing-steel-panther/ Tue, 18 Oct 2022 16:08:54 +0000 https://schlammpeitziger.com/radio-station-releases-statement-of-apology-for-playing-steel-panther/ Steel Panther is one hell of a live moment, but some of their overtly sexual innuendo doesn’t always make it over the heavily regulated airwaves.

Steel Panther is one hell of a live moment, but some of their overtly sexual innuendo doesn’t always make it over the heavily regulated airwaves. Yet somehow, the sounds of the band’s song “Glory Hole” found their way to LM Radio’s South African audience, prompting the station to issue an apology.

So how did a song about a particular public restroom delight make its way onto the airwaves of a station that touts playing “the sweetest tunes from the ’70s to today?” The apology statement, which now appears to have been taken down, but we managed to take a screenshot just before, attempts to clarify.

“On behalf of LM Radio. I would like to apologize unreservedly for the Steel Panthers song ‘Glory Hole’ which was played just after 2pm yesterday (Sunday). This song, along with other Steel Panthers, was inadvertently saved to our server as a result of the cyber attack on our systems earlier this year. When a time is scheduled at short notice, the system automatically includes songs to fill in the hour. “Glory Hole” was unfortunately the song chosen by the system,” the station revealed in its statement. .

They added, “We have immediately removed ALL Steel Panther songs from our servers. I again apologize for this and assure you that the content of this song does not resonate with who we are as a radio station. and as individuals. – Lyndon Johnston.”

Facebook: Radio LM

The apology drew a mix of responses, from those celebrating the station’s decision to remedy the incident (“The fact that you took time out of your day to apologize to your listeners says a lot about you and what you stand for,” one commenter said) to others who found joy in a little Steel Panther inadvertently inserted into the station’s playlist. “Thank you for this LM radio, in this era of PC and WOKE attitude, you just marketed a lekker song I never would have listened to. Shiny stuff, Glory Hole rock your c$*¥!”, wrote another commentator.

And yet another comically summed up the situation with his own humorous innuendo – “So an empty space was filled with a glory hole? I didn’t think that one either.”

News of the incident came back to Steel Panther who responded with typical humor commenting, “They say, ‘We’re sorry.’ We say, ‘You’re welcome.'”

From left, Kirk Lawrence-Howard, Meegan Gagnon, Sue Sneeringer and Travis Murray rehearse a scene for the Fall Festival of the Arts production of “Watch on the Rhine.”

Complex stories and thought-provoking themes have become the hallmark of Fall Arts Festival theater productions. And that’s exactly what audiences can expect when “Watch on the Rhine” begins its three-day run Friday at the WCR Center for the Arts, 140 N. Fifth St.

“Watch on the Rhine” is set in 1940, a year before the United States entered World War II. Kurt and Sara Muller – along with their three children – worked in the anti-fascist movement in Europe but came to America to visit Sara’s well-to-do family who have so far been isolated from world events.

The piece has special meaning for Meegan Gagnon, who plays Sara.

“My mother’s father was a member of the Dutch Underground,” Gagnon recalled, adding that he had helped save his grandmother, a German Jew. “It’s so meaningful because I grew up with these stories.”

But audiences don’t need to have a personal connection to the Holocaust to appreciate the play, says Sue Sneeringer, who plays Fannie, Sara’s mother.
“We want people to identify with the characters,” she said. “It’s a story of family and relationships. I hope the audience can imagine themselves in that situation and think about how they would react.

The show is directed by Fall Festival veteran John Gancar, who has helped stage thought-provoking pieces including last year’s performance of “The Amish Project” and 2017’s production of “1776,” which included an all-female cast five years before the Broadway revival — also with an all-female cast — was announced.

“Meegan was my John Adams,” Sneeringer recalled of the “1776” performance.

When asked to compare this show to “Watch on the Rhine,” she had no hesitation in saying, “It’s harder.”

Kirk Lawrence-Howard, who plays Kurt, added, “But if it wasn’t hard, it wouldn’t be fun.”

“I’m close to Fanny in personality,” Sneeringer said, capturing the difficulties of the role. “But I’m too attentive and she’s too attentive. I have to let her be ignorant.

In the play, the characters can only remain ignorant as long as world events eventually crash into their isolated world.

Travis Murray, who plays Sara’s brother David, hopes the show will help audiences connect with world events.

“The themes are still relevant internationally and even just outside of our own communities,” he said.

Performances are scheduled for Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. For more information and tickets, visit FallFestivalOfTheArts.org.
