When my two older boys were in grade school – maybe 8 and 10 – I took them to Chicago to see the usual sights. After visiting the Aquarium, the Field Museum and the Art Institute, we went to a modern art gallery just north of Millennium Park. After seeing several unusual rooms, we wandered around the basement, much of which was taken up by an old oven. It was noisy and we could see the fire through its glass door. On this door was a sign explaining that the furnace was a satirical piece created by a Chicago sculptor. I explained this to my boys, who seemed puzzled but interested. Then, as we approached the ground floor steps, Alan, the 8 year old, asked, “Dad, are these stairs real or are they art?” I told him I wasn’t sure. Almost three decades later, when my youngest son was in high school, I took him to Indianapolis to see and hear from Kurt Vonnegut, who was then and still is considered one of America’s greatest satirists. His stories weave in and out of linear time and between reality and imagination.

These memories are the preface to my admission that I’m still unsure of the stairs. The confusion is why, aside from “Slaughterhouse 5”, I haven’t read much of Vonnegut’s fiction. Satire bothers me. I’m afraid when I laugh at something, that the author is serious. Or when I’m shocked, worried or embarrassed by a passage, the author makes fun of the situation, and I miss it.

Rapper, singer and songwriter Kanye West has deleted all posts from his Instagram profile. Still. Yes, this is not the first time this has happened. West, who also goes by the name Ye, has spoken out about anything and everything in the recent past, raising concerns about his mental health. He has previously spoken of suffering from bipolar disorder, which often led to paranoia. Before deleting his Instagram (not the profile, just the posts), Kanye wrote something about Moses, Judaism’s most important prophet and a key figure in the Old Testament. Kanye wrote, “No one asked Moses how long he slept.”

As his fans and others tried to decipher what he meant, it should be noted that West targeted his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, her family, her boyfriend and actor Pete Davidson, clothing retailer Gap, and much more in his Instagram posts. . He also shared private text messages with Kim, causing much consternation all around. Not too long ago, he opened up about things as varied as his former mother-in-law Kris Jenner and her porn addiction which proved to be detrimental to his career. He then deleted the messages.

“Don’t let Kris make you do Playboy like she did Kyle and Kim. Hollywood is a giant mess. Porn destroyed my family. I deal with addiction, Instagram promotes it. I won’t let that get to Northy and Chicago,” he captioned a photo of an unknown woman.

Recently, Kanye West ended his association with Gap citing his dissatisfaction with the company. He accused the company of copying his designs, failing to secure him a place on the board, excluding him from meetings, and more. He also said Gap had not honored the terms of their agreement and had not opened stores of its fashion brand Yeezy.

Royal fans give London tourism a boost amid UK economic woes | Entertainment News https://chicago43rd.org/royal-fans-give-london-tourism-a-boost-amid-uk-economic-woes-entertainment-news/ Sat, 17 Sep 2022 06:18:35 +0000 https://chicago43rd.org/royal-fans-give-london-tourism-a-boost-amid-uk-economic-woes-entertainment-news/ LONDON (AP) — Royal fans traveled to the heart of London to experience flag-lined roads, pomp-filled processions and, above all, brave a mile-long queue for the once-in-a-lifetime chance to say goodbye to Queen Elizabeth II, who died after an unprecedented seven decades on the throne. And while they’re here, they’re stocking up on hotels, restaurants, […]]]>

LONDON (AP) — Royal fans traveled to the heart of London to experience flag-lined roads, pomp-filled processions and, above all, brave a mile-long queue for the once-in-a-lifetime chance to say goodbye to Queen Elizabeth II, who died after an unprecedented seven decades on the throne. And while they’re here, they’re stocking up on hotels, restaurants, and shops.

Visitors flocking to central London from as far away as the US and India for the historic moment are giving businesses a boost at a time when the UK economy faces a cost crisis of life fueled by the highest inflation in four decades and forecasts of an impending recession.

“It’s history, you know, it happens once in a lifetime,” said Kanakkantt Benedict, who traveled from India with his wife and marched past the Queen’s flag-draped coffin this week. “So we were part of it.”

The pomp and pageantry that preceded the funeral of Britain’s longest-reigning monarch underscored the royal family’s power as a global attraction, from an elaborate military procession for his coffin topped by a crown drawing live viewers from around the world to piles of flowers filling Green Park near Buckingham Palace and souvenir shops hastily producing souvenirs commemorating the Queen’s life as people clamor for souvenirs.

Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to pay their respects to the Queen in the four days her body rests in state before her state funeral on Monday, driving up demand for hotel rooms in central London which in some cases, have doubled in price.

Hundreds of world leaders, from US President Joe Biden to the Emperor and Empress of Japan, and their entourages are in need of accommodation when they arrive for the Queen’s funeral. The same goes for police coming from all over Britain to help with security.

Occupancy levels could reach a record high of 95%, according to London-based group booking platform Hotelplanner.com.

“It’s no surprise when you consider that the eyes of the world are truly on the capital and the media, dignitaries and members of the public, just like me, who just want to be part of such a historic occasion. “said Thomas Emanuel, senior director of hotel analytics firm STR.

All 35 rooms at the two-star Corbigoe Hotel in London’s Victoria district near Buckingham Palace have been booked, duty manager Riaz Badar said.

“Nowadays the rooms are full in this area, not only in our hotel but in all hotels in this area,” Badar said.

On the River Thames, the Riverside Cafe which sits next to the long queue that allows people to glimpse the Queen’s coffin, was “extremely busy”, manager Zab Istanik said. It opened two hours earlier than normal, at 7 a.m.

“We were busy like that when the Queen Mother passed away in 2002. But it wasn’t as busy as it is…this week,” Istanik said.

Also up the road, Jason Rich’s food stand, Fed By Plants, was doing a good business selling lentil burgers.

“It’s a long line,” Rich said. “So that definitely had a nice boost for the business.”

The UK was already an attractive place to visit as demand for international travel rebounds from the COVID-19 pandemic and the weakening of the pound, especially for US visitors, makes transatlantic travel more affordable.

University professor Chad Broughton, 51, who was visiting London from Chicago with two friends after a long pandemic delay, said their hotel room in the touristy Covent Garden district was expensive at 400 pounds ($456) the night.

But the trip to London was unique. “Seeing all these people queuing, seeing the reaction on the BBC and feeling that, you understand how important it is to people here,” he said.

Plus, the costs were offset by the falling currency, said friend Josh Walsman.

“We found everything to be of quite surprising value,” Walsman, a 51-year-old musician, said as they walked near Westminster Hall, where mourners inside paid their respects to the Queen and tourists outside took photos in streets closed to traffic.

Walsman said they went to a Champions League football game, had tickets to a play and a dinner reservation at the upmarket Indian restaurant Cinnamon Club.

“We mostly spent our money on pubs,” he said. “The conversion rate means every time a bill comes in, it’s like, ‘Oh, I thought that was about 30% more.'”

The pound briefly fell to a 37-year low against the dollar on Friday after UK retail sales volumes fell more than expected in August – a further sign of economic weakness.

Britain’s economy is reeling from rising energy prices spurred by Russia’s war in Ukraine, leading to the worst cost of living crisis in a generation. The government has announced it will cap household and business energy bills, but prices remain extremely high. Inflation is the highest of the Group of Seven economies, at 9.9%.

In this context, the money spent by visitors offered a glimmer of hope.

“Speaking of our hospitality sector, not just our hotels but restaurants, bars and pubs, they’ve had three terrible years because of this pandemic,” London Mayor Sadiq Khan said.

Budget hotel operator Travelodge said it had ordered extra breakfast supplies for its 78 London hotels for Monday, saying it expects many mourners to start their day with a breakfast – “Traditional Full English” lunch. Pub chain JD Wetherspoon said it would keep its central London pubs open on Monday during the Queen’s funeral.

Some analysts have predicted that the UK’s overall economic recovery following the period of royal mourning will be limited. Indeed, this would be compensated by the closure of supermarkets, retailers, hardware stores and other businesses for the funeral on Monday, which has become a public holiday.

However, renewed interest in the royal family could provide a prolonged boost to the travel and tourism industry, said Tim Hentschel, co-founder and CEO of Hotelplanner.com.

“Yes, in the short term the holiday will probably reduce productivity a bit,” Hentschel said. But “the overall momentum the UK is going to gain from all the tourism that’s going to be pouring in here over the next few days and then over the next few months will far outweigh” the short-term loss.

Rapper, singer and songwriter Kanye West, who currently goes by the name Ye, has decided to end his Yeezy brand’s association with popular clothing and accessories retailer Gap after just two years. The 2020 deal has been hailed as groundbreaking.

West recently expressed his displeasure with Gap on his social media. He accused the company of copying his designs, failing to secure him a place on the board, excluding him from meetings, and more. He also accused Gap of breaching the terms of the deal and not opening stores for its fashion brand Yeezy.

Earlier, there were reports suggesting Gap executives were frustrated with Kanye’s laxity. The first product made under the deal was a down jacket costing $200. But it didn’t go on sale for a year.

Gap, America’s largest specialty apparel company, has itself been under water recently. Its Indo-Canadian general manager, Sonia Syngal, had to step down after a significant drop in sales.

In an internal company email, quoted by the BBC, current chairman and chief executive Mark Breitbard said that despite the brands’ shared values, “the way we work together to deliver this vision is not aligned”.

Recently, Gap was one of the things Kanye talked about in a series of social media posts, most of which are now deleted. He spoke about things as varied as his former stepmother Kris Jenner and her porn addiction which proved to be detrimental to his career. The messages left the internet puzzled.

“Don’t let Kris make you do Playboy like she did Kyle and Kim. Hollywood is a giant mess. Porn destroyed my family. I deal with addiction, Instagram promotes it. I won’t let that get to Northy and Chicago,” he captioned a photo of an unknown woman.

Lewis has released over 80 recordings, 30 of which with Chicago-based Chess Records. He toured the world and performed at the State Dinner for President Fernando Henrique Cardoso of Brazil, hosted by then-President Bill Clinton in 1995. “I believe my father – his love for the piano and his passion for the piano and how he coveted that love and how he protected it – it gave him longevity,” Bobby Lewis said. “He recognized the gift that God had given him.”

WNUA-FM’s ‘Morning Show’ and national program ‘Legends of Jazz with Ramsey Lewis’ In 2007, he was the host of the weekly program ‘Legends of Jazz with Ramsey Lewis’, which aired on national public television. According to the show’s creators, it was the first weekly jazz appearance on network television in forty years. It featured both jazz legends and rising stars.

Lewis also spent time advocating for organizations that gave young people access to music. “Ramsey’s passion for music was truly fueled by the love and dedication of his fans around the world,” his wife, Janet Lewis, said in a Facebook post. “He loved touring and meeting music lovers from so many cultures and backgrounds. It was a great pleasure for our family to share Ramsey in this special way with all who admired his God-given talents.”

Lewis is revered in jazz circles for his 1960s hits such as “The ‘In’ Crowd”, “Hang on Sloopy” and “Wade in the Water”. He has won three Grammy Awards and seven gold records. The trio’s first record in 1956 was “Ramsey Lewis and the Gentlemen of Swing”.

Lewis died Monday in his sleep at his Chicago home, according to his son, Bobby Lewis.

“He was just at peace,” Bobby Lewis told The Associated Press Monday night. “Most people say when they met dad he was a class act. He was like that until his last breath.

Ramsey Lewis described his approach to songwriting and performance in a 2011 interview with the AP.

“Life is a solo, and it goes on,” Lewis said, sitting at the dining room table in his downtown Chicago home. “I just know that when I put my hands on the piano, it’s going to sink.”

Lewis first took piano lessons when he was 4 years old. He spent his early days in Chicago using his gospel and classical roots to create his own style of jazz at the many neighborhood venues that hired young jazz musicians.

“It gave us a lot of opportunities to try out our ideas and learn what it’s like to perform in front of an audience,” Lewis said as he was named a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Master in 2007. He accepted the prize of his mentor and fellow jazz master, pianist Billy Taylor.

During his career Lewis has performed with music stars such as Aretha Franklin, Tony Bennett, Al Jarreau and Pat Metheney. Lewis had more than 80 albums to his credit, including three dozen with Chicago-based Chess Records. He has toured the world and performed at the 1995 State Dinner that then-President Bill Clinton hosted for President Fernando Henrique Cardoso of Brazil.

“I believe my father – his love for the piano and his passion for the piano and how he coveted that love and how he protected it – that gave him longevity,” Bobby Lewis said. “He recognized the gift that God had given him.”

The Chicago native began composing large-scale musical works later in his career. His first was an eight-movement piece for the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago. He also completed a tribute to President Abraham Lincoln – “Proclamation of Hope: A Symphonic Poem by Ramsey Lewis”.

Lewis also hosted radio shows in the 1990s and 2000s, including “The Ramsey Lewis Morning Show,” on WNUA-FM and the syndicated “Legends of Jazz with Ramsey Lewis.” In 2007, he hosted “Legends of Jazz with Ramsey Lewis”, a weekly show that aired on public television stations nationwide.

The show’s creators said it was the first time jazz was featured on a weekly basis on network television in 40 years. It featured big names in jazz and the next generation.

Lewis also spent time working for charities that brought music to young people.

“Ramsey’s passion for music was truly fueled by the love and dedication of his fans around the world,” his wife, Janet Lewis, said in a Facebook post. “He loved touring and meeting music lovers from so many cultures and backgrounds. It was our family’s great pleasure to share Ramsey in this special way with all who admired his God-given talents.

Brett Steele, whose Tampa, Fla.-based Steele Management has represented Lewis since 2011, said Lewis spent the last year of his life working on his memoir, which is completed and expected to be published next year.

In addition to his wife and son, Lewis is also survived by his daughters Denise Jeffries and Dawn Allain; two other sons Kendall Kelly Lewis and Frayne Lewis; and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

A statement from Campbell Danesh’s family says he was discovered unconscious on August 11 at his Rochester residence.

Campbell Danesh, raised in Glasgow by a Scottish mother and Iranian father, made her debut on talent show Popstars two decades ago. He then placed third behind Will Young and Gareth Gates in the first UK Pop Idol on ITV, gaining popularity on a hit format that helped him gain fame.

“Colourblind”, his next No. 1 song, debuted at No. 1 in the UK, while his debut album Dive reached No. 10 there. Live Twice, his second album was released in 2004.

Subsequently, Campbell Danesh became well known as a West End performer, appearing on shows like Guys and Dolls, Chicago, Funny Girl and Gone with the Wind. After ingesting sewage from the Thames in 2017, he nearly died of meningitis.

In 2011 he married Canadian actress Natasha Henstridge; two years later, they divorced. (ANI)

Welcome back to a pumpkin spice flavored edition of the “Spotlight.” With the unofficial end of summer, it’s time to put away your white clothes, dust off your flannels, and settle into the cool and cozy season that is fall. And that can only mean one thing: football is back. And the powers that be are betting on yours, mine, and hundreds of millions of other eyeballs who watch games on Saturdays and Sundays…and Mondays. And Thursdays. Oh, and sometimes on Fridays. After all, what else could explain the billions of dollars spent by major television networks securing the media rights to televise college football and National Football League games, and advertisers buying millions of dollars worth of airtime for a Superbowl projector.

  • With the help of high-profile placements during the NFL season, sports drink brand Gatorade is launching a new sugar-free, caffeinated energy drink called “Fast Twitch,” which is exactly what you will do if you drink too much.
  • NBA superstar Steph Curry is making a splash in the edition, hoping to fill racing baskets as skillfully as arena baskets.
  • The estates of two music icons – David Bowie and Elvis Presley look set to bring their legacy to the blockchain with a series of NFT projects. Or at least I think it’s Elvis.
