Charles Bradley Posthumously Releases New Album, ‘Black Velvet’ [Listen]

first_imgCharles Bradley was 63 years old when his first full-length album, No Time For Dreaming, was released via Daptone Records in 2011. Despite its title, the old school soul and R&B vocalist had spent much of his life chasing dreams, including his dream of putting out a record and performing for packed audiences night after night. These aspirations were what kept Bradley going during what was often a very difficult journey to stardom. Sadly, Bradley passed away at the age of 68, having relished every moment in the limelight that eluded him for most of his life. While we won’t get to see his infectious smile on stage anymore, his music will always be here for all of us.A month before what would have been his 70th birthday, Daptone and their Dunham Records imprint announced the posthumous release of The Screaming Eagle of Soul’s final album, Black Velvet, officially due out on November 9th. Black Velvet features ten previously unreleased tracks, pulled from the recording sessions for Bradley’s three albums, including No Time for Dreaming, 2013’s Victim of Love, and 2016’s Changes.The new album includes covers of Nirvana‘s “Stay Away”, Neil Young‘s “Heart of Gold”, and Rodriguez‘s “Slip Away”, as well as a duet with LaRose Jackson called “Luv Jones”, a full-band take on “Victim of Love”, and more. The album’s title track is an instrumental by Menahan Street Band, for which Bradley never got the chance to record vocals.Today, NPR is providing a pre-release full album stream, which you can listen to here.Below, you can watch the official music video for the album’s lead single, “I Feel A Change”, featuring clips of Charles’ performing years:Charles Bradley – “I Feel A Change” [Official Video][Video: DaptoneRecords]Culled from Bradley’s Victim of Love sessions, this new version of “I Feel A Change” features organ and horn parts that were added later. As Tommy “TNT” Brenneck, frequent collaborator and friend of Bradley, recently of the song,The lyrics are 100% Charles. Personal yet abstract. Directly from the heart. He truly loved the expression ‘going through changes’ and this was a few years before we would record our rendition of Sabbath’s “Changes” with the Budos. Sadly Charles never got to hear the finished version of this beautiful song.You can see the full tracklisting for Charles Bradley’s Black Velvet below.

Loving tribute to Arthur Kee as family prepare for first Fathers Day without him

first_imgThere is a book on the shelf of Kee’s Hotel in Stranorlar that is entitled ‘The Way Back.’ Beside it, a book called ‘Eden’.Eden for Kee’s Hotel began in 1892 when the, then coaching inn, was bought by the Kee’s family and transformed into a hotel with family at its heart.Four generations later and brother and sister team Vicky and Richard Kee find themselves facing their first Father’s Day celebrations without their ‘friendly, fair and fun’ father, Arthur Kee. Now entering its fourth generation the way back and the way ahead for the hotel without Arthur is sure to flourish with his lasting legacy as its driving force.Vicky and RichardOn Father’s Day, Kee’s hotel, regarded as a home away from home by so many will welcome all kinds of dads, who like Arthur, love their food, love their family and love to have a good time.Reflecting, Vicky and Richard, said: “Dad’s advice was ‘be fair, work hard, be honest, enjoy your work, enjoy your guests and respect everybody.’ There are so few family hotels left in Ireland and it is such a gift for us to be able to continue on the real family hotel. “For my father, it was all about family and providing a home away from home to his guests.”Vicky explains: “Since dad’s death there has been time to reflect on his legacy.“Although his death was so sudden, he had been in failing health over the last year and decided to hand the responsibility of the business to myself and Richard,” she added.“We have both been working in the hotel for some years and are both fully aware of the love daddy had for the history and reputation of Kee’s. We are meeting the challenge with insight and enthusiasm.”“To this end we have enlisted the services of HMS UK & Ireland, a management company (known within the hotel, and to dad as Ann and Kathleen) to put the working structures of the business on a more formal basis, to update working practices, and to help implement the many plans dad had for the further development of the hotel he loved so much. “Vicky continues:  “Dad welcomed Ann and Kathleen’s input and ideas. He enjoyed working with “the ladies” as he affectionately called them.   He was especially excited by hotel development plans and enjoyed taking part in discussions about these.” “We are determined to make dad proud by ensuring that, regardless of change, the hotel will retain the service, civility, and pride in product synonymous with his unique hotel. We are determined to retain these qualities at a time when they, all too often, seem to be lost.”Contemplating the first Father’s Day without her dad Vicky gains strength by easily calling to mind her favourite memory of her dad, his ‘big hearty laugh.’Vicky said: “When I think of dad I think of his big smiley face. He was the only man I knew that laughed at his own jokes first. He absolutely loved his work, every day of it. He adored meeting people from all over the world and yet he was in love with Donegal. He thought there was nowhere to beat Donegal in the whole world.”An emotional Vicky manages to joke when asked whether her daddy would want her to work on Father’s Day this year, “aww daddy would want me to work, no doubt about it!” Loving tribute to Arthur Kee as family prepare for first Fathers Day without him was last modified: June 10th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

USDA partners to improve electric infrastructure for more than 347,000 aural Americans across 13 States

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Assistant to the Secretary for Rural Development Anne Hazlett announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is investing $398.5 million (PDF, 105 KB) to improve rural electric service in 13 states, including Ohio.“Reliable and affordable electricity is undeniably a necessity in today’s world,” Hazlett said. “Under the leadership of Secretary Sonny Perdue, USDA is committed to being a strong partner in keeping our rural communities connected to this essential infrastructure.”USDA is making the investments through the Electric Infrastructure Loan Program. These projects will help improve the quality of life in rural communities in Arkansas, Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia.The investments USDA is making today include nearly $43.7 million for smart grid technology to increase system efficiencies. Smart grid includes computer applications, two-way machine-to-machine communications, geospatial information systems and other tools to increase the reliability and efficiency of electric power systems.The Department’s support for rural cooperatives and utilities underscores Secretary Perdue’s priority to promote rural economic development by centering around three principles: infrastructure, partnerships and innovation. Investing in electric infrastructure has increased productivity and improved the quality of life in rural areas for nearly 80 years.In April 2017, President Donald J. Trump established the Interagency Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity to identify legislative, regulatory and policy changes that could promote agriculture and prosperity in rural communities. In January 2018, Secretary Perdue presented the Task Force’s findings to President Trump. These findings included 31 recommendations to align the federal government with state, local and tribal governments to take advantage of opportunities that exist in rural America. Increasing investments in rural infrastructure is a key recommendation of the task force.last_img read more

Does Silicon Valley Look Like “Silicon Valley”?

first_img9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… I hit the streets of San Francisco on an all-too-warm afternoon with camera and notebook in tow, scouting for people wearing what I thought of as the “tech uniform”—the studiedly casual California look associated with startup culture.You know the look—company T-shirt, jeans, and the omnipresent hoodie. You’ve seen this fresh-from-the-dorm look in films like The Social Network and now in HBO’s “Silicon Valley,” the series that cunningly stereotypes the Bay Area’s tech scene. Does reality reflect the Hollywood stereotype?I grew up in the Bay Area, so I already had an idea in my head, shaped both by pop-culture images and my own lived reality. Documenting the style, I hoped, might make me question my assumptions, as well as understand the genesis of this tech style—if indeed there was a singular style to be found.In my head, the tech uniform looked a lot like this:The Tech Uniform: Programmer Drag? As noted fashion thinker and ReadWrite muse RuPaul once noted, we are born naked. The rest is drag.So even as a software developer grabs whatever’s clean in his dresser, the choices he makes reflect the culture he lives and works in. Perhaps it’s not drag as much as code—an algorithm designed around efficiency. Whatever you call it, it’s a social construction, not something you’re born with or issued when your plane lands at SFO.The hints are all there: the branded tees and hoodies, the two-wheeled transportation, the stubbly face in transition from a goatee to a beard. Yes, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg made hoodies and Adidas flip-flops famous—or infamous. But this image isn’t based on any single person’s reality. It’s an amalgamation of many converging ideas of what startup culture looks like. The idea of a tech uniform, we should note, is also stereotypically male—not so much gendered as male by default, created with the presumption of a male-dominated tech community.  It’s the intersection of many depictions of the “tech guy”, bred both within the culture and outside of it. As author and early Facebook employee Kate Losse wrote, the myth of the “brogrammer” is more a creation of the media than a reflection of reality. Now startup employees are emulating the stereotype, wherein lies its danger.What’s wrong with T-shirts and jeans, you might ask? On the surface, nothing. But the idea of a uniform, whether prescribed by authority or by social pressures, raises questions about who’s wearing it, and hence in the group, and who’s outside. Without a uniform, there can’t be an other to exclude.Clearly I need a company-logo hoodie. I appear to have violated the dress code. #OpenAir #San FranciscoStyle— Tekla Perry (@TeklaPerry) April 24, 2014Perhaps it’s the trickle-up effect within the tech community: Young startup entrepreneurs straight out of university carry their casual academic dress into the workplace, from whiteboard sessions to board meetings. In a culture that worships young founders, the startup boss in the graphic tee and cargo shorts sets the tone for the rest of the company.Suddenly, coworkers and investors are dressing to match the man—and so often it’s a man—at the top. Newer employees follow suit. Next thing you know, the whole company looks like it would fit in a lecture hall. There’s also a trickle-down effect, as external representations in film and TV weigh on people’s fashion choices.Think about Mark Zuckerberg. Now think about Jessie Eisenberg playing Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network. Then think about Andy Samberg parodying Jessie Eisenberg playing Mark Zuckerberg in the The Social Network. Suddenly, the image of the “guy who works in tech” is not only cemented in the minds of the tech community themselves, through three layers of representation and imitation.Madame Tussauds recently revealed a waxen, shoeless Mark Zuckerberg, with a T-shirt, hoodie, jeans, and brandless MacBook. (Apple’s always so fussy about its appearance.) Along with being barefoot—not a look he’s styled for almost a decade—he’s also sitting in a chair cross-legged, which is pushing the chill factor pretty hard. This is the image that will greet tourists from all over the world, an image that will affirm and reify their idea of Silicon Valley. It doesn’t matter that the Zuckerberg figure doesn’t look much like the nearly 30-year-old man who took the stage recently at a Facebook developer conference.  The tech guy turns into a costume, and programmer drag comes into existence.The Brogrammer Myth Becomes RealityIf brogrammers did not exist, the producers of “Silicon Valley” would have to invent them. As Losse, the early Facebook employee, noted in her essay on the myth of the brogrammer,  the term, a portmanteau of “bro” and “programmer,” gained traction in the media in recent years despite starting as an inside joke, a mocking of overcompensatory masculinity among programmers who recognized that their profession was not particularly butch. A developer who rejected “typical” programmer personality traits like nerdiness and introversion in favor of the sporty gregariousness of a college jock or fraternity pledge would not have fit in well at Facebook or anywhere.Yet as startups and technology became a sexy, mainstream phenomenon, and programming widens in its appeal, the “brogrammer” myth, picked up by the media, turns into an ideal. You can have it all, kids—startup riches and bro-sanctioned masculinity! Thus the uneasy marriage of the hoodie and the Under Armour compression T-shirt, the hipster bike pants and the designer jeans in today’s Silicon Valley.If watching HBO’s “Silicon Valley,” which paints brogrammers as code-typing, conniving bullies in tight T-shirts with the wrong kind of Valley accent, hurts a little, it’s because it cuts too close to the truth. Take a stroll around San Francisco’s South of Market district, though, and you’ll see fewer fist bumps and spandex tees and more men who look like the show’s main character, Richard, in his button-up shirt and slacks.And that’s where “Silicon Valley” inches closer to the real deal. The parody approaches parity with reality.The Street Styles Of SoMa Marcus Ubungen of Goodby Silverstein wears a t-shirt, dark wash jeans, sneakers, a messenger bag, cap, and thick rimmed glasses.I wasn’t going to find the answers watching TV shows or reading essays on the Web, so I decided to set out and document San Francisco’s real styles.Kanyi Maqubela of Collaborative Fund wears a grey button up, jeans, Toms, and a backpack.Setting forth from ReadWrite’s San Francisco headquarters—at Third and Townsend, a block away from Caltrain and in the heart of SoMa, I began my search for the real tech uniform. Scouting people for photos in such an enclosed tech bubble is not an easy feat. Everyone has somewhere to go, lunch to get, people to meet. Avos’ Vijay Karunamurthy wears a plaid button up underneath a grey sweater, dark wash jeans, patent black shoes, and a gym bag.Marcus Ubungen, a film director who works out of downtown San Francisco at Goodby Silverstein, stopped to pose before hopping into an Uber—reminding us that the apps on one’s phone are as much a part of the uniform as the T-shirt on one’s body. The trend seemed to be stylishly casual from the start. San Francisco favors comfort over fussy and complicated outfits.Kanyi Maqubela, a venture partner at Collaborative Fund, says most of his colleagues wear limited-edition sneakers to work—an option that combines a studied ease with deliberate self-expression. I caught up with Vijay Karunamurthy of Avos in line at Philz Coffee. Karunamurthy, who helped create Avos’s Mixbit video app, doesn’t think Silicon Valley techies pay too much attention to what other people wear. That leads individuals to feel more free to be who they are. He calls it “casual with a purpose.”A Flock Of Codershttp://www.youtube.com/watch/gKftzAbfcGUHBO’s “Silicon Valley” paints groups of programmers as a stereotyped flock of five—”a tall skinny white guy, short skinny Asian guy, fat guy with a ponytail, some guy with crazy facial hair, and then an East Indian guy. It’s like they trade guys until they all have the right group.” This stereotype defied discovery—I couldn’t find a group like this if I tried. But I did catch this trio emerging from GitHub’s San Francisco headquarters. David Newman (left), Jake Boxer (center), and Fabian Perez (right) of GitHub.These three GitHubbers took a different stance towards tech culture’s widespread dress-for-comfort attitude. GitHub’s David Newman wears a pastel blue shirt under a darker blue, crew neck sweater. He pairs this with grey jeans, brown suede shoes, a gold watch, a thick rimmed glasses.GitHub’s David Newman describes that attitude as “intentionally casual.”He explained that often in a tech company, newer employees will want to wear clothes marked with the company logo in order to represent the brand. After the initial phase of decking themselves out in head-to-toe company merch, employees then go through a period of distancing from the brand.Jake Boxer of GitHub wears a dark blue t-shirt, dark grey jeans, black sneakers, a black GitHub hoodie, and thick rimmed glasses.The science of a tech company shirt is really complex. Wearing newer shirts could signify a newbie—a new hire. Non-company shirts may be worn by a longtime staffer comfortable in his role. Or these longstanding employees might also wear older company T-shirts, with outdated logos, to indicate all the years they’ve put in. At this point in the conversation I felt as though I was being taught the etiquette of a 17th-century French court.This idea that specific T-shirt customs within a tech company can follow certain rules and imply meaning, power, and hierarchy is a fascinating one.It’s an example of how the everyday fashion choices of bosses and coworkers influences others in the company. Employees may not judge one another for their brand of plaid for the day, but a 2008-era GitHub shirt? That alone speaks volumes.GitHub’s Fabian Perez wears a button up plaid shirt underneath a dark blue v-neck sweater. He pairs this with camel pants, dark blue sneakers, and sunglasses.Logowear also makes statements about class and attitude towards wealth.Jake Boxer, a developer at GitHub, points out that most people in tech just wear what they can get for free. That conveys a certain attitude towards material possessions that’s common in the tech culture.Yet there remains a yearning for more: Dressed in GitHub’s signature Octocat-branded hoodie alongside his sweater-clad colleagues, Boxer tells me he regularly looks towards his more fashion-forward coworkers for style inspiration, because as he puts it, using video-game-inspired slang, “We could all level up a little bit.” Not that one has much to aspire to. It’s hard to level up when the average level is so low. Fabian Perez, a designer at GitHub who comes from the northeastern U.S., finds fashion in San Francisco’s tech culture uninspired compared to what he’s used to.A Moving TargetLumen Sivitz (left) of Mighty Spring pairs a dark grey t-shirt with dark wash jeans, brown boots, a messenger bag, and tortoise shell sunglasses. Dan Wiesenthal (right) of MyProject also wears a t-shirt, jeans, sneakers, a messenger bag, and sunglasses.I caught Lumen Sivitz, CEO of Mighty Spring, next to his bike. Besides leaving a smaller carbon footprint, this choice of transportation plays a huge part in one’s work attire. (Try biking to work in a three-piece suit.)Sivitz says that his outfit depends on the context of his day. He’ll wear a button-up for business meetings, for example. He says none of his colleagues appear to invest too much in what he’s wearing—again, a theme that in tech, you dress for yourself.MyProject engineer Dan Wiesenthal agrees that the tech bubble is a relatively judgement-free zone in terms of fashion, where comfort and individuality take precedent over getting in the good style graces of a colleague. What I appreciated most was the idea that all that mattered in getting ready in the morning was their happiness for the day. Sivitz and Wiesenthal explained that “… it’s all about the right T-shirt,” paired with some brown boots or sneakers. So much meaning in such simple garb.So maybe TV does get it right sometimes. I saw bits and pieces of my stereotypical tech-guy avatar at various points in my photo journey; a fixie bike here, some Warby Parker glasses there, and company T-shirts everywhere.Like so many other styles of clothing, the tech uniform is a mishmash of street style and mainstream influences. Through it all, there’s a fundamental idea: Dressing not for success, but for happiness. It’s a dream we can all aspire to—if only putting on the uniform was all we had to do to live the fantasy of today’s Silicon Valley.Photos by Madeleine Weiss for ReadWrite, Illustration by Nigel Sussman and Madeleine Weiss for ReadWrite  stephanie ellen chan Related Posts 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnoutcenter_img Tags:#Brogrammers#Clothing#fashion#Mark Zuckerberg#Outfits#programmers#Silicon Valley#Silicon Valley Street Style#social network#soma#style 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People…last_img read more
