first_img The Struts, Kaleo To Open For Rolling Stones Tour struts-kaleo-announced-openers-rolling-stones-2017-tour Twitter News Facebook The legendary classic rockers have tapped some unexpected young talent as supporting acts for their upcoming European tour.Brian HaackGRAMMYs Sep 6, 2017 – 3:28 pm The Rolling Stones need no introduction.Nearing the close of the 55th year of their astounding career, they’ve shown no signs of slowing, having recently headlined the opening night of AEG/Goldenvoice’s hugely talked-about rock nostalgiafest Desert Trip, and now readying to embark on a brand new European tour.  The reigning kings of classic rock have made it clear they do not intend to set aside their crowns any time in the near future.What they do seem to be exploring lately, however, is a comfort with leveraging their perpetual fame to exercise themselves as rock and roll king-makers, as well as dynastic rulers.Case in point: the ‘Stones have tapped some exciting young bands to be their supporting acts for their upcoming No Filter Tour, which will see them playing 13 shows across 12 European cities from Sept. 9 through Oct. 25.The tour will kick off in Germany and Austria with opening sets by Icelandic indie-rock rising stars Kaleo, whose breakout 2016 track “Way Down We Go” saw them conquer the Billboard Alternative Songs and Rock Airplay charts in the U.S., and nabbed a Gold certification from the RIAA.  Kaleo will be followed by GRAMMY-nominated American blues singer John Lee Hooker, Jr., for their final night with the Rolling Stones in Spielberg, Austria.Another especially exciting support act the Stones have picked up are “retro-fetishist” English neo-glam rockers the Struts, whose debut lead single “Could Have Been Me” shot to No. 1 on the Spotify Viral Top 50 chart, peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart, and led the band to sell out a total of 20 dates on their first-ever trip to the U.S. Strut’s lead singer Luke Spiller has been called, ” the musical love child of Freddie Mercury and Mick Jagger.”Additional supporting acts announced for the other legs of the tour include Los Zigarros, de Staat, Rival Sons, and the Hellacopters, with GRAMMY winning rockers Cage The Elephant joining the party for the tour’s final three-night victory lap in Paris.For their own part, the Rolling Stones have made it clear they plan to keep their own sets fresh and unpredictable, with assurances that they plan to include, “a couple of unexpected tracks each night and randomly selected surprises,” sprinkled in amongst their catalogue of hit songs and fan favorites.A limited number of tickets for the Rolling Stones ‘No Filter’ European Tour 2017 are currently still available from the band’s website.Charles Bradley Cancels Tour Due To IllnessRead more Email The Struts, Kaleo Announced As Openers For Rolling Stones’ 2017 Tour last_img read more

Jackie Shroff on playing Salman Khans father in Bharat I am aware

first_imgJackie Shroff on playing Salman Khan’s father in BharatVarinder Chawla/IANSJackie Shroff, who is just 10 years older than Salman Khan, will be seen playing the latter’s father in upcoming movie Bharat. However, Jackie has no qualms in playing Salman’s father as he considers him a kid.Jackie said that although there is not much age difference between him and Salman, he has no issue in playing his father in Bharat.”I am aware that the age gap is only 10 years. We started our careers almost around the same time, but I don’t have any problem playing his father. I have always treated Salman like my bachcha. Even today, he is like a kid to me,” the senior actor told Mid-Day.Justifying his stand, Jackie further said that he had played Aamir Khan’s father in Dhoom 3, and he has no apprehension in taking up such roles.”I played Kareena Kapoor’s father in Yaadein in 2001, and a few years back, I did it with Aamir Khan in Dhoom 3 (2013). If the character is good and I am convinced about it, other factors don’t matter to me,” the 62-year-old actor said.Salman and Jackie had worked together in films like Bandhan, Kyon Ki, Veer, Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaaye. He had mostly played Salman’s friend or elder brother, but this is the first time Jackie will be seen as his father.Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Bharat also features Katrina Kaif. Teaser of the movie had received positive response from the viewers, and now fans are eagerly waiting for the trailer that will be released in April.Meanwhile, Salman has another highly anticipated film titled Inshallah. What makes this film more special is the fact that the superstar has collaborated with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali after two decades. Also it will bring the fresh pairing of Salman and Alia Bhatt.last_img read more

Trump defiant despite rising outrage over border separations

first_imgIn this photo provided by US Customs and Border Protection, people who`ve been taken into custody related to cases of illegal entry into the United States, sit in one of the cages at a facility in McAllen, Texas, Sunday, 17 June, 2018An unapologetic president Donald Trump defended his administration’s border-protection policies in the face of rising national outrage over the forced separation of migrant children from their parents. Calling for tough action against illegal immigration, Trump declared the US “will not be a migrant camp” on his watch.Images of children held in fenced cages fueled a growing chorus of condemnation from both political parties, four former first ladies and national evangelical leaders. The children are being held separately from parents who are being prosecuted under the administration’s “zero-tolerance” policy for illegal border crossings.Trump on Monday falsely blamed Democrats – the minority party in Washington – for obstructing legislation to fix the situation. In fact, it was Trump’s administration that broke with longstanding practice of processing migrant families in civil, rather than criminal, proceedings that allow families to be held together.”I say it’s very strongly the Democrats’ fault,” Trump said Monday as his administration rejected criticism that the policy has resulted in inhuman and immoral conditions.Homeland security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said, “We will not apologise for the job we do or for the job law enforcement does, for doing the job that the American people expect us to do.”In an appearance before the National Sheriffs’ Association in New Orleans, Nielsen said: “Illegal actions have and must have consequences. No more free passes, no more get out of jail free cards.”Nearly 2,000 children were separated from their families over a six-week period in April and May after attorney general Jeff Sessions announced the new “zero-tolerance” policy that refers all cases of illegal entry for criminal prosecution. Prior procedure had limited prosecution for many family entrants, in part because regulations prohibit detaining children with their parents since the children are not charged with a crime and the parents are.The policy change was meant to deter unlawful crossings – and Sessions issued a warning last month to those entering the US illegally that their children “inevitably for a period of time might be in different conditions.”The current holding areas have drawn widespread attention after journalists gained access to one site Sunday. At a McAllen, Texas, detention center hundreds of immigrant children wait in a series of cages created by metal fencing. One cage had 20 children inside. Scattered about are bottles of water, bags of chips and large foil sheets intended to serve as blankets.Audio of sobbing children calling out for their parents dominated the discussion Monday. “Papa! Papa!” one child is heard weeping in an audio file that was first reported by the nonprofit ProPublica and later provided to The Associated Press.Administration officials said they do not like the family separations either – calling it the result of legal loopholes – but insist migrants who arrive illegally simply won’t be released or loosely kept track of.”The United States will not be a migrant camp and it will not be a refugee holding facility,” Trump declared. “Not on my watch.”Sessions, on Monday, echoed the administration’s defense of the zero tolerance policy, and called on Congress to act.”We do not want to separate parents from their children,” he said. “If we build the wall, if we pass legislation to end the lawlessness, we won’t face these terrible choices.”Mindful of the national outcry, lawmakers in both parties rushed Monday to devise a targeted legislative fix. But the White House signaled it would oppose any narrow fix aimed solely at addressing the plight of children separated from their parents under the immigration crackdown. Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump’s priorities, like funding a border wall and tightening immigration laws, must also be fulfilled as part of any legislation.”We want to fix the whole thing,” she said. “We don’t want to tinker with just part of it.”The national debate over the family separation policy comes as Republican lawmakers are growing ever more concerned about negative effects on their re-election campaigns this fall. Trump is to travel to Capitol Hill Tuesday for a strategy session on upcoming immigration legislation.Underscoring the sensitivity of the issue, language curbing the taking of immigrant children from parents held in custody will be added to the House’s conservative immigration bill, a House GOP aide said Monday, A similar provision is already in a compromise GOP immigration measure between party conservatives and moderates, with the House expected to vote on both late this week.The administration is hoping to force Democrats to vote for the bills or bear some of the political cost in November’s midterm elections.White House officials have privately embraced the border policy as a negotiating tactic to win votes for legislation to fulfill the president’s pledge to build a border wall and to tighten the nation’s immigration laws.Trump’s commitment to the current policy showed no sign of faltering as voices of outrage and condemnation grew louder and more diverse.In Massachusetts, Republican Gov. Charlie Baker reversed a decision to send a state National Guard helicopter to the southern border, citing what he called the administration’s “cruel and inhumane” policy of separating children from their parents.The Rev. Franklin Graham, a longtime Trump ally, called the policy “disgraceful.” Several religious groups, including some conservative ones, have pushed to stop the practice of separating immigrant children from their parents. The Mormon church said it was “deeply troubled” by the separation of families and urged national leaders to find compassionate solutions.Former first lady Laura Bush called the policy “cruel” and “immoral,” and said it was “eerily reminiscent” of the US internment of Americans of Japanese descent during World War II.On Capitol Hill, Republicans joined Democrats in calling for an end to the separations. Michigan Republican Rep. Fred Upton called for an immediate end to this “ugly and inhumane practice,” adding, “It’s never acceptable to use kids as bargaining chips in political process.” Kansas GOP Sen. Pat Roberts said he is “against using parental separation as a deterrent to illegal immigration.” And GOP Rep. Mike Coffman warned, “History won’t remember well those who support the continuation of this policy.”last_img

Entertainment Weekly Will Go Monthly

first_imgUnder the new plan, EW will produce more digital-only feature reporting and in-depth guides for tentpole events – as well as digital-only covers featuring A-list stars of a major movie franchise. The first is slated for release in the first week of July. The company also plans to produce podcasts and a new schedule of video offerings along with more exclusive screenings, panels, curated events and festival partnerships.The last issue of Entertainment Weekly in its current print form will be the July 5 issue, which goes on sale June 25. Entertainment Weekly is going monthly – at least in print.Publisher Meredith Corp. said it intends to boost the outlet’s social video, events and digital platforms while scaling back its magazine publication schedule to once a month. The first monthly issue, slated to debut in August, will focus on Comic-Con. The magazine will continue to produce special interest magazines to coincide with big entertainment industry moments, the company said.JD Heyman (above, pictured), who has been deputy editor at People, will become the new editor in chief of Entertainment Weekly, while the current editorial chief, Henry Goldblatt, will step down after 17 years with the publication.The moves show Meredith still working to weave the magazines it acquired from Time Inc. for $2.8 billion in January of last year into its operations. The Des Moines, Iowa, company has sold publications Time and Fortune to entrepreneurs and recently struck a deal with Authentic Brands for $110 million to take on the business of developing Sports Illustrated while Meredith continues to publish it for the next two years. The company has kept People, once the crown business jewel of Time Inc., and the publication to which EW was most closely affiliated. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Observations unveil chemical structure of the protoplanetary disk OphIRS 67

Cold regions traced by DCO+, the disc structure proven by CO isotopologues and S-bearing species, and a PDR associated with the surface layers of the disc, traced by CN, DCN, and carbon-chain molecules. The outflow direction is taken from Bontemps et al. (1996). Credit: Villarmois et al., 2019. Protoplanetary discs represent an important stage in the formation of planets. Astronomers believe that the final composition of planets depends on the chemical process taking place within the disc. Therefore, studies of the initial phase of disc formation could be crucial in improving knowledge of the formation and evolution of planetesimals, planets and other objects.However, such studies are very challenging due to fact that the innermost regions of protoplanetary discs are embedded within large amount of gas and dust. In order to shed more light on the physical structure of these regions, chemical surveys of deeply embedded sources are required.Oph-IRS 67 (IRS 67 for short) is a protobinary system located some 493 light years away in the Ophiuchus star-forming region and part of the L1689 cloud. The two sources in the system are separated by about 90 AU from each other. Previous observations of IRS 67 have shown that it contains a Class I circumbinary disc with an extent of approximately 620 AU. In general, Class I discs represent the bridge between deeply embedded Class 0 sources and the emergence of planet-forming discs, known as Class II sources.However, the researchers found that IRS 67 showcases a particular rich chemistry and bright emission of the c-C3H2 molecule, which is atypical for Class I sources. This unusual chemical composition motivated a trio of astronomers from University of Copenhagen, Denmark, led by Elizabeth Artur de la Villarmois, to investigate this disc in detail.”The purpose of this paper is to explore the structure of a line-rich Class I protobinary source, Oph-IRS 67, and analyze the differences and similarities with Class 0 and Class II sources,” the astronomers wrote.Observations conducted using the SMA instrument allowed the team to detect a range of molecular transitions that trace different physics, such as carbon monoxide (CO) isotopologues, sulphur-bearing species, deuterated species, and carbon-chain molecules.The researchers grouped the detected transitions into three main components: cold regions far from the system, the circumbinary disc, and a ultraviolet-irradiated region likely associated with the surface layers of the disc. “The detected molecular transitions are tracing three main regions: cold regions beyond the circumbinary disc extent, the circumbinary disc, and a PDR [photon-dominated region] likely related with the surface layers of the disc. DCO+ is tracing the cold regions, while the CO isotopologues and the sulphur-bearing species are probing the disc structure,” the paper reads.Moreover, the study found that the continuum emission in IRS 67 is consistent with previous studies, which suggests that dust grains in the disc have grown to larger sizes than the interstellar medium dust particles, or that the dust is optically thick. Summing up the results, the researchers concluded that IRS 67 exhibits chemical similarities with Class 0 sources, while photon-dominated region tracers, such as cyanide (CN), are associated with Class II discs. “IRS 67 is, therefore, a chemical link between these two stages,” the scientists wrote.
