first_imgSlash featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators have shared a thrilling new music video for “Boulevard of Broken Hearts”, a track which appeared on the famous rock guitarist’s latest solo studio album, Living The Dream.The black-and-white video takes viewers across the pond and over to London, where the band is seen performing at the Eventim Apollo earlier this year back on February 20th. The video was directed by Dan Sturgess, who over the last few years has been at the helm of videos for other hard rock bands including Black Label Society and Alter Bridge, with the latter also featuring Slash’s current solo frontman, Myles Kennedy.Related: Watch Slash Surprise Young Guitarist Brandon ‘Taz’ Niederauer At ‘School Of Rock The Musical’ RehearsalIn addition to showing Slash and company performing “Boulevard of Broken Hearts”, the video also takes viewers outside the London venue where fans are seen waiting outside prior to the show underneath the lit marquee featuring the band’s name. Sturgess also captures a mix of backstage footage, with the band warming up before taking the stage in front of a sold-out audience. For the most part, the video is edited to slow-motion, which contrasts well alongside the song’s faster, high-energy feel. Shots of the band members rocking out and furiously playing their instruments are balanced by footage of fans having an equally wild time out in the audience.Fans can check out Slash’s new music video below.Slash ft.

938 admitted early to College Class of 2021

first_imgApplications for early action at Harvard College rose 5 percent this year to 6,473, and 14.5 percent, or 938 students, were admitted to the Class of 2021. Last year, 6,167 applied early, and 14.8 percent, or 914 students, were admitted.“Early admission appears to be the ‘new normal’ now, as more students are applying early to Harvard and peer institutions than ever before,” said William R. Fitzsimmons, dean of admissions and financial aid. “At the same time, we have continued to stress to applicants, their families, and their guidance counselors that there is no advantage in applying early to Harvard. The reason students are admitted — early or during the regular action process — is that their academic, extracurricular, and personal strengths are extraordinary.”The admissions committee is careful to ensure that only those students who are, in Fitzsimmons’ words, “100 percent certain” to be admitted in regular action are admitted early. “This is particularly important because in recent years we have received record numbers of applications,” said Fitzsimmons. Last year, 39,041 students applied for admission to the Class of 2020. Ten years ago, 22,754 students applied for admission to the Class of 2010.The demographics for the Class of 2021 early action group are similar to last year’s group. Slightly more women (48.0 vs. 47.4 percent) make up the new class thus far, and more African-American students were admitted (12.6 percent vs. 9.5 percent last year). In addition, 21.7 percent of admitted students identify as Asian-American (compared with 24.1 percent last year), 8.8 percent as Latinos (vs. 9.5 percent), and 1.1 percent as Native American and Native Hawaiian (vs. 1.6 percent).Geographic patterns were also similar, although there were somewhat more admitted students from the Midwest and Mountain states and fewer from the South and the West. Intended academic concentrations were similar, although there were slightly more humanists and social scientists this year.“A new concentration in Theater, Dance & Media, the reopening of the Harvard Art Museums, and vibrant theater opportunities, including the American Repertory Theater, have met with great enthusiasm on the part of prospective students,” said Marlyn McGrath, director of undergraduate admissions. “In addition, the Harvard Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and its extensive opportunities — along with the Innovation Lab — have attracted more promising engineers and computer scientists than ever before.”Harvard’s leading financial aid program continues to send a strong message of access to outstanding students from all economic backgrounds. Since launching the Harvard Financial Aid Initiative in 2005, Harvard has awarded nearly $1.6 billion in financial aid to undergraduates.“Financial aid remained critically important to prospective Harvard students. Many used Harvard’s easy-to-use net price calculator to determine that Harvard was a realistic possibility for them,” said Sarah C. Donahue, Griffin Director of Financial Aid. More of those admitted early this year were estimated by staff to have high financial need, and slightly higher numbers of first-generation college students were admitted (8.7 percent vs. 8.2 percent).Harvard costs the same or less than most public universities for 90 percent of American families, and students can graduate debt-free because no loans are required. One in five Harvard families has an annual income of less than $65,000 and pays nothing toward the cost of their students’ education. The average family contribution for a financial aid student is $11,640. Families with incomes up to $150,000 and typical assets pay 10 percent or less of their annual incomes. In addition, families with higher incomes can receive need-based aid, depending on individual circumstances.“It is still too early to know exactly how many of the admitted students will need financial aid, as many students’ financial information is incomplete,” said Donahue. “Ultimately, we expect that the majority of students will be awarded need-based aid.“Our new $2,000 start-up grants for students whose annual family incomes are less than $65,000 have received a great deal of attention as we have recruited nationally and internationally this year,” she said. Under this program, students receive $1,000 when they arrive in August and another $1,000 in January to help them with expenses during their transition to college.As part of the financial aid program, Harvard spent $3.3 million in 2015 to help students pay for health insurance, books, travel costs to and from home, fees for events, performances, activities, and more so that every student could engage fully in a Harvard experience. These investments are reflected in the many accomplishments of the aided students, as well as in their 97 percent graduation rate, which is the same as their classmates’.“Recruitment in all of its forms was vitally important in attracting such a strong early admission group this year,” said Anne De Luca, associate dean for recruitment. “In addition to traveling to 150 locations throughout the United States to meet with students and families, we have also conducted international travel. We are most fortunate to be able to call on our nearly 10,000 alumni and alumnae around the nation and the world to help us with recruitment at the local level.”Harvard undergraduates will be hard at work in the coming months to reach out to the students admitted under early action. The Undergraduate Minority Recruitment Program, the Harvard Financial Aid Initiative, the Harvard First-Generation Program, the Harvard College Connection, and the Undergraduate Admissions Council will play major roles in the recruitment efforts.Faculty members will provide information about academic and research opportunities both in the College and across the University, emphasizing the One Harvard concept that helps ensure that students have a complete picture of what awaits them. Admissions staff members will write personal notes to all admitted students, encouraging them to consider Harvard as their college choice.The deadline for regular action admission is Jan. 1, and students will be notified of admissions decisions on March 30. Students admitted under both the early action and regular action programs have until May 1 to reply to their offers of admission.last_img read more

Andrew Lloyd Webber Fights Back Over Stephen Ward Shuttering!

first_imgLegendary composer Andrew Lloyd Webber has written to the Daily Telegraph refuting the suggestion from it’s reporter Tim Walker that if “there had been people of equal stature” around him, he would not have written his latest musical Stephen Ward. The show, of which he is “immensely proud,” recently set a premature closing date of March 29 in London’s West End. Cats should have put the well, cat into catastrophe. Lloyd Webber had to take out a second mortgage on his house to get the show on. Strikes against it included lyrics by a “dead poet,” a “commercially untried director” (Trevor Nunn) and a producer who had “no major West End hit”  (Cameron Mackintosh). To top it all off, the theater it was to play in was unlucky—Grease, starring Richard Gere had even flopped there. Lloyd Webber’s take on what makes a hit musical? “Fools give you reasons, wise men never try.” Lloyd Webber pointed out that the production’s director was five-time Olivier winner Richard Eyre, the producer was the veteran Robert Fox and the book and lyrics were by Oscar winners Christopher Hampton and Don Black. The Oscar, Tony and Grammy winner asserted that “the difference between success and failure in musical theater is a horrifyingly fine line,” maintaining, “I believe that if you choose a subject purely because it appears commercial, catastrophe looms.” View Commentslast_img read more

Navy, Air Force chiefs expected to lead border protection efforts

first_imgBoth Yudo and Fadjar were previously in charge of Joint Defense Area Commands (Kogabwilhan) I and II, respectively, which were set up in commemoration of the 74th anniversary of the Indonesian Military (TNI) last year as a means of deterrence against outside threats and to improve branch interoperability.On Wednesday, TNI commander ACM Hadi Tjahjanto signed off on a transfer order for 78 high-ranking officers, including replacements for both Yudo and Fadjar.Rear Adm. I Nyoman Gede Ariawan, formerly the commander of the Navy’s Third Fleet Armada, was promoted as commander of Joint Defense Area Command I, based in Riau Islands province, while Air Vice Marshal Imran Baidirus was promoted from commander of the Indonesian National Air Defense Command (Kohanudnas) to commander of Joint Defense Area Command II, based in East Kalimantan, kompas.com reports.Indonesia’s porous borders have long been subject to illegal, unreported, unregulated fishing (IUUF) practices by foreign vessels, with cases often recorded in the North Natuna Sea, Riau Islands province.Diplomatic tensions soared between Indonesia and China early this year after a number of Chinese fishing vessels were found to be repeatedly poaching fish in Indonesia’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ), where it has exclusive rights to marine resources.As recently as last month, the Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Ministry also detained two Vietnamese-flagged fishing vessels in the same area.Considering the sophisticated nature of Indonesia’s border security requirements, military experts such as Khairul Fahmi of the Institute of Security and Strategic Studies (ISESS) have raised hopes that the two military chiefs could build up synergy and improve coordination among relevant stakeholders.“We still hear about illegal vessels and aircraft illegally passing through our territory. This shows that the management of maritime territory and airspace should be improved with updated strategy, oversight and regulation,” said Khairul. “Coordination and communications between them should be good.”Yudo has promised to continue the programs of his predecessor, particularly as regards modernization of the Navy’s primary weapons system (alutsista).“When it comes to the Navy, that entails the naval integrated fleet weapons system [SSAT] that includes warships, the Marine Corps, military bases and even naval aircraft, so that our strength is [concentrated in] upholding sovereignty and rule of law at sea,” Yudo said at the State Palace last week.He also said he would continue patrolling operations despite the COVID-19 outbreak, giving reassurance that naval officers would continue to practice physical distancing measures and wearing masks. Yudo was also previously part of the integrated task force set up to manage emergency medical facilities in Kemayoran, Central Jakarta, as well as on the islands of Galang, Sebaru and Natuna, all of which are located in the Riau Islands.Meanwhile, Fadjar has said that President Jokowi had specifically asked him to safeguard Indonesia’s airspace borders.“There is some emphasis, particularly for the Air Force, on securing our airspace, which we will follow up in spite of the current situation with the pandemic,” Fadjar said.Topics : The two high-ranking officers, who received their fourth stars in line with rank requirements for the chief of staff position, represent the graduating class of 1988 from their respective military academies.Yudo and Fadjar are expected to lead their forces in safeguarding Indonesia’s territorial integrity against conventional threats, said international relations expert Dewi Fortuna Anwar of the Indonesia Institute of Sciences (LIPI).“The Navy and the Air Force are two forces that are expected to defend our sovereignty, as the Army is more actively involved in internal security operations,” Dewi told The Jakarta Post recently.As such, she said it was vital that the two military chiefs would continue with the last stage of the minimum essential forces (MEF) program, a 15-year defense modernization drive first set out by former president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in 2010. The Navy and Air Force chiefs of staff sworn in earlier this month are expected to spearhead efforts to safeguard Indonesia’s territorial integrity, experts say, amid persistent challenges by foreign vessels encroaching on the country’s sovereignty.On May 20, President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo led the swearing in ceremony for Admiral Yudo Margono and Air Chief Marshal Fadjar Prasetyo as they took on their new roles as chiefs of staff of the Navy and Air Force respectively.Yudo replaces Admiral Siwi Sukma Adji, who is retiring this month, while Fadjar is to replace ACM Yuyu Sutisna, who is expected to retire next month.last_img read more

Arsene Wenger ‘surprised’ by Frank Lampard’s treatment of Chelsea star Olivier Giroud

first_imgArsene Wenger ‘surprised’ by Frank Lampard’s treatment of Chelsea star Olivier Giroud Olivier Giroud is unhappy with a lack of playing time at Chelsea (Picture: Getty)Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger admits he’s surprised by Frank Lampard’s treatment of Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud this season and says he should be ahead of Michy Batshuayi in the pecking order.The Frenchman wanted to leave the club in January after making just two league starts under Lampard but Chelsea refused to sell to rivals Tottenham.Giroud is desperate to make France’s Euro 2020 squad and injury to Tammy Abraham provided him a much-needed opportunity to start for the Blues.However, Lampard opted for Batshuayi ahead of Giroud for Chelsea’s defeat against Manchester United earlier this month.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTGiroud was then given the nod ahead Tottenham on Saturday and repaid Lampard for his decision by opening the scoring but Wenger admits he cannot understand why it’s taken the Englishman so long to call on the forward. Giroud spent six years under Wenger (Picture: Getty)‘Honestly I felt he was hard done by because he was behind Batshuayi – I feel that was quite surprising,’ Wenger told BeIN Sports.”He’s a guy that has a lot of quality, he uses his body well, he is intelligent, he brings players in and when you don’t pass on the ground you can play in the air.‘With the second ball you always have a chance with him because no defender can head clearly out with him. I stood sometimes behind him in training – and I am quite tall – i couldn’t see the ball.‘He is so massive, so strong and he uses as well his body.’Giroud kept his place in Chelsea’s starting line-up for the visit of Bayern Munich.The Blues are underdogs to progress against the Bundesliga giants, who they’re playing for the first time in a competitive fixture since their 2012 Champions League final win in Munich.MORE: Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal tactics are to protect Bernd Leno and his centre-backs, claims Gary Neville Advertisement Advertisement Comment Metro Sport ReporterTuesday 25 Feb 2020 8:23 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link3.6kShareslast_img read more

Fund manager trade body launches diversity campaign

first_imgAt the conclusion of the film, which reveals a cross-section of workers in the sector, one participant said: “The investment industry is so varied… I did not expect that.”The IA recently merged with Investment 20/20, which was established five years ago to promote entry-level talent, diversity and inclusion within the investment industry. The film represents part of the trade body’s push to promote its “Supporting the Next Generation” programme.Since 2013, Investment 20/20 has recruited and mentored more than 1,300 trainees and apprentices for almost 40 firms across the investment and wealth management industry. The Investment Association, which represents the UK’s £6.9trn (€7.8trn) asset management industry, has launched a video designed to counter young people’s often-negative stereotypes of the sector.The film, which features a selection of younger investment industry workers, pits students’ attitudes and views of the sector against the reality of what the IA has termed the “more diverse pool of talent”.“We know that firms with diverse teams and pipelines make better decisions and we are working hard to make our industry more attractive to those from different backgrounds,” said Chris Cummings, CEO of the IA.The video includes comments from students who expect those working in the investment management industry to be “stereotypically male… middle-aged white guys… privately educated”.last_img read more

Giggs reveals bitter-sweet emotions

first_img Press Association He also won 64 caps for Wales and not only captained his country but led a Great Britain side at the 2012 Olympics in London. A move into a full-time backroom role, however, had long seemed likely after spending the past year as player-coach and then serving as interim United manager after David Moyes was sacked in April. In an open letter to supporters, Giggs said: “I am immensely proud, honoured and fortunate to have represented the biggest club in the world 963 times and Wales 64 times. “My dream was always to play for Manchester United, and although it saddens me to know I won’t be pulling on a United jersey again as a player, I have been lucky enough to have fulfilled that dream playing with some of the best players in the world, working under an incredible manager in Sir Alex Ferguson, and most of all, playing for the greatest fans in world football. “For me, today is a new chapter filled with many emotions – immense pride, sadness, but most of all, excitement towards the future. “United fans I hope will share and echo my belief that the club, the management and owners, are doing everything they can to return this great club to where it belongs, and I hope to be there every step of the way. “To the greatest fans in world football, thank you, I have loved every minute of playing for you and representing the biggest and best club in the world.” Giggs came through United’s youth ranks and was a member of their famous ‘Class of ’92’ group of FA Youth Cup winners. He thrilled fans throughout his career, as a dynamic winger in his younger days and latterly as a central midfielder. His status as one of the finest players of his era was assured long before he was appointed OBE in 2007 and named Professional Footballers’ Association player of the year in 2009. He scored in every season of Premier League football, from the competition’s inception in 1992, until the campaign just ended, when appearances during Moyes’ ill-fated year in charge became less frequent. He played his last game earlier this month, against Hull, in one of the four games for which he was in charge on an interim basis. United were thought to be keen to retain his services in a coaching capacity and his position is believed to have been a key part of their negotiations with Van Gaal. United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward said: “Ryan Giggs has been one of the greatest players ever to wear the red shirt of Manchester United. “What he has achieved will never be equalled in the English game. “In the way he played, he was the embodiment of a Manchester United player – fast, skilful, entertaining and determined to win by playing exciting football. “His progress from the ranks of the famous ‘Class of ’92’ to the most decorated player in this or any club’s history is down to his hard work, ability and attitude. “He is at the start of an exciting new chapter in his and the club’s life but now is the right moment to reflect on the achievements of the finest British player of the last 25 years.” The 40-year-old announced his retirement after 24 seasons, a record 963 appearances, 168 goals and 34 trophies for United soon after he was appointed number two to new boss Louis van Gaal. Giggs’ statistics, which span a career that began at the age of 17 in 1991 and included 13 Premier League titles and two Champions League successes, make him the most decorated player in English history. Ryan Giggs revealed his bitter-sweet emotions after ending his glittering playing career but also being named as Manchester United’s new assistant manager.last_img read more
