first_imgDONEGAL’S greatest ever music export Clannad are to tour America later this year for the first time in two decades – with one of their shows set to be broadcast across the States on St Patrick’s Day.The Grammy Award-winning Gaoth Dobhair family will see their ‘Live from Christchurch Cathedral’ show – recorded last January in Dublin – shown on TV stations on St Patrick’s Day.And we can also reveal that TWO separate album launches will take the American market by storm. The first is a new 30-sing double CD called ‘Timeless’ which will include tracks from the past three decades.With worldwide sales of more than 10 million records, Clannad has maintained a presence on the concert and festival circuit.But after 14 years they are finally back in the studio working on a brand new Clannad album for release in September – Celtic music known in America as ‘Clannad Music.’© 2011, all Rights Reserved The copying, republication or redistribution of Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on us on YORK, Feb. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Grammy Award®-winning Irish family band Clannad– the original Celtic artists who introduced their native Gaelic tongue into contemporary pop as far back as 1970 – will be the focus of attention on St. Patrick’s Day this year, as PBS stations across the north­east broadcast “Clannad – Live from Christchurch Cathedral.” In advance of the PBS broadcast, a new 30-song, double-CD collection has been compiled, spanning the past three decades of Clannad’s recording career. TIMELESS will be available at all physical and digital retail outlets starting March 6th through RCA/Legacy, a division of SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT.(Logo: ) The PBS special, produced and directed by Cathal Watters, premieres on St. Patrick’s Day, Saturday, March 17th.  Airings will continue through­out the month (please check local listings).  The concert was recorded at the ancient Irish cathedral on January 29, 2011, as part of the annual Temple Bar Tradfest.The release of TIMELESS and the broadcast of “Live from Christchurch Cathedral” set the stage for Clannad’s first North American tour in almost 20 years, to commence in September.  Dates will be announced in the months ahead via their website,’s rich heritage is as deep as their own roots in rugged, secluded Donegal, the most northwestern county in Ireland, and their hometown of Gaoth Dobhar (pronounced ‘Gweedore’).  They were originally known as An Clann as Dobhar, ‘the family from the townland of Dore,’ which was compacted to Clannad (pronounced clan-ehd).The five-member group comprises the three singing and song­writing Brennan siblings, Moya (the eldest, known for her distinctive lead vocals and evocative harp playing), Ciaran (pronounced Kieran, adept on piano, guitar and bass), and Pol (Paul, the youngest, also on tin whistles and flutes); along with their older twin Duggan uncles, Padraig (pronounced Porric, on mandolin, guitar, harmonica, and vocals) and Noel (on guitar and vocals). Between 1973 and 1980, they recorded six traditional albums, each of which helped to shape and refine the band’s now unmistakable sound.  In 1979 and ’80, they brought out 18-year old Eithne, aka Enya – the fifth of the nine Brennan siblings – on keyboards and background vocals for two albums, Crann Ull and Fuiam.  This marked the start of Enya’s multi-platinum recording career (though her first solo album did not appear until 1986).In 1982, Clannad recorded “Theme from Harry’s Game” for the Granada series of the same title set in Northern Ireland.  The song hit #5 on the Irish chart and won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Soundtrack from the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters, the UK’s most prestigious music honor.  (The song was also nominated for the British BAFTA Award that year for Best Television Music.)  It was included on Clannad’s album, The Magical Ring (1983), which became their first gold-selling disc in the UK.  Years later the song brought them success in America when it was used in a major advertising campaign for Volkswagen.Clannad also created the music for the highly popular UK television series “Robin Of Sherwood,” which aired from 1984-86.  Their Legend album was compiled from the soundtrack music which won the BAFTA Award for Best Original Television Music of 1984.Clannad’s growing worldwide popularity brought U2’s Bono into the studio to record “In a Lifetime” with them, a top 20 UK single included on their 1986 album, Macalla.  Encouraged by Jackson Browne and members of Toto, Clannad recorded their next album in Los Angeles. Sirius (1987), co-produced by Russ Kunkel and Greg Ladanyi, included guests J.D. Souther, Steve Perryof Journey, Bruce Hornsby, and others.  The album led to Clannad’s first world tour the following year and two high-profile UK soundtrack albums: Atlantic Realm (1988, for a BBC documentary about the Atlantic Ocean) and The Angel And the Soldier Boy(1989, for a short animated film).1990-91 was a breakthrough year for Clannad, hinged on the success of their album Anam, which included “Ri Na Cruinne (King Of The Universe),” composed overnight (literally) for the global One World One Voice campaign.  Filmed and broadcast by the BBC to an international audience estimated at 200 million, One World One Voice put Clannad in the company of Afrika Bambaataa, Laurie Anderson, the Chieftains, Peter Gabriel, Bob Geldof, Dave Gilmour of Pink Floyd, Gipsy Kings, Eddie Grant,Chrissie Hynde, Mali’s Salif Kieta, the Kodo drummers of Japan, the Leningrad Symphony Orchestra, Lou Reed, Robbie Robertson, Dave Stewart, Sting, Little Steven Van Zandt, Suzanne Vega, and others.Released on Atlantic in 1992, Anam‘s success was assured as it added both “In a Lifetime” (with Bono) and “Theme from Harry’s Game” to the tracklist.  “Ri Na Cruinne” subsequently won the Billboard Music Award for World Music Song Of the Year.The four Atlantic album releases continued with Banba (1993, Clannad’s first Grammy Award®-nominated album, including “I Will Find You” from the movie The Last Of the Mohicans); Lore (1996, their second Grammy Award® nomination, including “Croi Croga,” originally written for Braveheart); and Landmarks (1998).  The latter won Clannad their first Grammy Award® (Best New Age Album), and was the last record they released together as a group before embarking on various solo projects that continue to this day.  In 2007, Clannad received the Lifetime Achievement Award from Ireland’s Meteor Awards, comparable to the Grammy Awards®, the UK’s BRIT Awards and Canada’s JUNO Awards.With worldwide sales of more than 10 million records, Clannad has maintained a presence on the concert and festival circuit.  After 14 years they are finally back in the studio working on a brand new Clannad album for release in September. It is fascinating to consider that what today is so widely regarded as Celtic music was first called “Clannad music.”  There is perhaps no greater testament to the impact of this groundbreaking group than that simple fact.  It all begins with ClannaCLANNAD TO BROADCAST ACROSS UNITED STATES FOR ST PATRICK’S DAY – FIRST TOUR IN 20 YEARS was last modified: February 15th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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)Tags:american tourClannadGaoth DobhairGweedorenew albumlast_img read more

first_imgLove these so a great deal ideal fr any cosplay. Bought two so me and my lover could twin cats with each other. They have been so cute and just best with wigs and usual hair. Have a slight tendancy to flop ahead but practically nothing a hair pin can’t take care of.Super cute neko ears which i put on generally.My daughter wore these for a social gathering seemed fantastic.Key specs for Anime Wig Cosplay Lolita Cute Cat Ears Hairpin Hair Accessories:New and high qualityCat Ears HairpinPlushColor as shown in pictureCosplay Lolita Hair AccessoriesComments from buyers“The two ears had manufacturing differences — so they weren’t , I think these cat ears are just so adorable and ideal for costumes and cosplay, its okay but when you get them they are way , Sweet little ears, There Cute and awesome!, I think these ears are a perfect size. I have brown hair”Really difficult to have on as they turn out to be unfastened but good ears.Get a slim head band though so stays on better would be my tips xx.Excellent for my wolf costume. I do need further clips to preserve the ears in my hair.Sweet little ears that rotate on a steel headband (silver coloured) which is fantastic sufficient to be missing in your hair. You can posture them at distinct angles and your head keeps them in location. Rigid sufficient to stand upright but soft great good quality material and that body fat anime appear. Lesser than they look in the photo but not ridiculously compact for an grownup/teen. Entirely good order for modest cost.Actually pleasant high quality, very soft. A minimal more substantial than i imagined they had been likely to be even though.The two ears experienced producing differences — so they were not. The two ears had production variances — so they were not accurately the exact which created it challenging when making an attempt to get them to glance symmetrical. Moreover the clips at the base are not very long ample so its tricky to get them to sit flat without the need of ever so marginally hanging off your head. Therefore, you may perhaps want to buy some more substantial clips oneself and cut the types on the base off and replace them with a hot glue gun. Ears are nevertheless cute even though and arrived in a decent time frame. I purchased them for halloween but never assume i’d use them once more.They arrived really early too ^-^.They are the excellent addition to my halloween costume(scheduling early this calendar year) they have pretty a sturdy grip way too.More compact than envisioned and very fiddly to nput on,, would not endorse.Not as darkish grey as they look in the photo.They search excellent on and stay in location really nicely. They appear great on and continue to be in position really well.These were being great for my daughter to gown up as a cat.I believe these cat ears are just so cute and ideal for costumes and cosplay. I feel these cat ears are just so adorable and perfect for costumes and cosplay. The only problem i have with them is that it can be not advisable on small, boyish hair, as a single of the pair has virtually slipped off due to my hair becoming brushed to just one aspect, so just a heads up.They’re excellent for extravagant gown even so how clip was experiencing the improper way which intended they fell out simpler.I consider these ears are a great measurement. I consider these ears are a fantastic dimension. I have brown hair, so acquired the brown ears with the pink insides and i believe they seem amazing.It did acquire a little experimentation with placement and hairstyles to get them in the most ‘natural looking’ place. They are smooth and smooth, arrived extremely quickly and are very perfectly made. They attach with extensive press-clips (i don’t know what the appropriate title for them is).They glance particularly as they are in the picture. They are tremendous fluffy and comfy. They are a little loose with just the hair clip that is on the ears so you do have to use a bobby pin to protected it far better so it does not go that a great deal but it really is not a substantial concern.Its all right but when you get them they are way. Its okay but when you get them they are way to unfastened for the to stay on your head even with the clips i experienced to attach them to a hairband to make them additional secure but even so i wouldnt actually obtain them.Definitely great but a little bit flimsy i would suggest clipping them to a headband so they never move about much too a great deal, otherwise terrific.These are so cute and sense truly good and don’t transfer around far too a lot.The fur is pretty soft and it matches my head flawlessly. It arrived prior to comic con far too.Really like them and arrived tremendous swift .last_img read more

Ohio State’s Thad Matta Was Pretty Unhappy With The Referees Following His Team’s Loss To Michigan State Last Night

first_imgThad Matta yells at a referee.Thad Matta did a lot of screaming during his team’s game against Michigan State Friday night. Plenty that yelling was directed at his players, who performed quite poorly in a 76-67 loss to the Spartans in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinal round. But a lot of it was aimed at the officials. Matta, 47, has been coaching in the conference since 2004. He, in a roundabout way, called the officiating during last night’s game the worst he’s ever seen. Matta on the officiating: “I’ve been in this league 11 years and that was amazing.”— Kevin Trahan (@k_trahan) March 14, 2015Matta was mostly unhappy with the amount of physicality the Spartans were getting away with. He believed his players were getting bumped on cuts, hand checked when dribbling and bodied when driving into the lane. Matta says this was one of the most physical games he’s ever seen. My interpretation: “We got hacked to death.”— Jerod Smalley (@JerodNBC4) March 14, 2015To be fair to the refs, there was an even distribution when it comes to the amount of fouls that were called – 20 on Michigan State and 18 on Ohio State. With the win, the Spartans moved on to the semifinal round, where they’ll face No. 2 seed Maryland. The Buckeyes, meanwhile, will find out their NCAA Tournament fate Sunday night. Most projections have Matta’s team seeded on the No. 8/No. 9 line.last_img read more

39B buyout of Tribune by Sinclair ends in acrimony

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – The $3.9 billion buyout of Tribune Media by Sinclair collapsed Thursday, ending a bid to create a massive media juggernaut that could have rivaled the reach of Fox News.Tribune Media Co. said Thursday that it is suing Sinclair for breach of contract and at least $1 billion in damages, according to its complaint .Sinclair used “unnecessarily aggressive and protracted negotiations” with the Department of Justice and Federal Communications Commission over regulatory requirements, the Chicago company said, and it refused to sell the stations it needed to in order to gain regulatory approval.Sinclair Broadcast Group wanted the Chicago company’s 42 TV stations and had initially agreed to dump almost two dozen of its own to score approval by the FCC.The media company, which has enjoyed the support of President Donald Trump, appeared to be cruising toward approval by U.S. regulators.Last month, however, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said that he had “serious concerns” about the deal, saying that Sinclair might still be able to operate the stations “in practice, even if not in name.”That drew a rebuke from Trump.“So sad and unfair that the FCC wouldn’t approve the Sinclair Broadcast merger with Tribune,” Trump tweeted. He said that allowing Sinclair to expand its reach would have led to a “much needed conservative voice by and for the people.”Sinclair operates 192 stations, runs 611 channels and operates in 89 U.S. markets. It would have been able to expand rapidly into numerous new markets with the Tribune acquisition.Sinclair has become a significant outlet for conservative views.It was admonished by media watchdogs in April after Deadspin, a sports news site, pieced together clips of dozens of TV anchors for Sinclair reading from the same script, which warned viewers about “biased and false news” from other media outlets.Sinclair has defended the decision to have its anchors read from the same script across the country as a way to distinguish its news shows from unreliable stories on social media.The Maryland company said Thursday in a prepared statement that the Tribune lawsuit is “entirely without merit.”“We unequivocally stand by our position that we did not mislead the FCC with respect to the transaction or act in any way other than with complete candour and transparency,” said CEO Chris Ripley.Free media advocacy groups cheered the demise of the deal.Public Knowledge, an advocacy group that has been critical of the FCC under Pai, has been against a tie up between Sinclair and Tribune from the start.“While what has apparently killed this deal was Sinclair’s pattern of deception at the FCC — a fact that should affect its future dealings at the Commission — the deal was bad on its own merits, and this latest development is good for consumers,” said Phillip Berenbroick, senior policy counsel at the organization. “Broadcasters are supposed to serve their local communities. This deal would have contributed to the trend where ‘local’ news and ‘local’ programming is created or scripted out of town.”last_img read more

Indigenous energy firm touts job creation in joint venture to make bitumen

first_imgCALGARY — The CEO of an Indigenous energy company says a project to transform oilsands bitumen into pucks for safer shipping to customers around the world will potentially create needed jobs in northern Alberta while helping to recycle plastic litter.Jeff Paquin says the project his company, Wapahki Energy Ltd., is working on with Canadian National Railway Co. could also result in a long-term revenue stream for its owner, the Heart Lake First Nation, a tiny community of about 250 members surrounded by several thermal oilsands projects.CN Rail has been working for years on its “CanaPux” technology that mixes and coats heavy, sticky bitumen oil with recycled polymer plastic, creating a product the size and shape of a bar of soap that can be shipped in rail cars or shipping containers and will float if spilled into water.It revealed last month a joint venture plan to build a pilot plant for about $50 million to process 10,000 barrels per day of bitumen, with a commercial facility with capacity of 50,000 barrels per day to follow.During a presentation to the Indigenous Energy Summit on the Tsuut’ina Nation on Thursday, Paquin said Wapahki and CN are to each contribute $16.7 million to the joint venture to build the CanaPux pilot plant, with the remainder coming from either industry partners or government or a mix of both.The community would separately build and own a facility to clean and process 300 tonnes per day of recycled plastic, creating more than 200 jobs, and a biomass-fuelled power plant that would employ about 50 people.“We all know that Canada and the rest of the world have a real issue when it comes to plastics,” Paquin said.“Why not introduce a solution to use that plastic, divert it from landfills, and use that as part of the manufacturing of CanaPux. You’re creating jobs on the recycling side for the northern communities.” Companies in this article: (TSX:CNR) The Canadian Presslast_img read more
