FABULOUS SISTERS

~WORLD OF DANCE 2018~

The 2018 season is at ‘the cut’ portion.

This  group of young, talented ladies are simply out of this world.

They have gone through the qualifiers, the duels and now the cut.

I really wish them the best!

Enjoy the video.

World of Dance” judge Jennifer Lopez and special guest Savion Glover mentored the Junior Team Division contestants during the Cut, and Lopez was a little worried that The Fabulous Sisters from Fukushima, Japan, didn’t have an entirely cohesive routine prepared. But she changed her tune when she saw their complete performance.

They were decked out in regal gold costumes and ruled ferociously from a throne. Imagine if Cersei Lannister from “Game of Thrones” blew up the Sept of Baelor with just the power of urban dance.

~Jennifer Lopez~

“You guys made me tired, and I don’t get tired. Your formations and pictures from our mentoring session went up so much, and I loved that we really made you the focal point of this and it didn’t get lost in the middle of it and it made it so strong. You know, it’s very interesting choreography. It’s so different than anybody else in the competition. Beautiful.”

~Derek Hough~

I thought it was really nice that Jennifer let you borrow her throne. Again, the way you dance the choreography is so amazing. The intensity, and then right when I thought, ‘Oh, this is a great routine,’ you all took a shot of espresso and just went into hyper mode. It was like ‘Whoa!’ The way you used your costume at the end: very simple, but very, very effective. It was one of those ‘ooh’ moments. It was so good.”

Jaxon Willard, a 16-year-old from American Fork, passed the first Qualifiers round of NBC’s “World of Dance” Season 2 with flying colors, completed the Duels and aced the Cut round of the competition.

“I’ve always been teased and bullied about my skin color, and so I would always suppress all my feelings and keep them inside until I discovered dancing, and so this song to me is kind of saying that it’s OK to be vulnerable and it’s OK to be sad,” Willard told the judges.

The American Fork native explained to the judges that his inspiration for the dance he performed was his experience as an African American growing up in a predominantly white community.

Willard’s self-choreographed dance to Kygo and Labrinth’s “Fragile” for the qualifiers,  “Surprise Yourself” by Jack Garratt for the duels and  “Higher” by The Score.

REVISED DEATH TOLL IN PUERTO RICO

REMEMBER WHEN?

We ALL knew!

The official count is 16, then 64, then 4,645!

Now, after a study done by professionals, the official number is 2,975.

Who can anyone be sure?

Shame on Drumpf … it won’t matter because he doesn’t care!!
She’s the only person who has been vocal about the situation in Puerto Rico since Hurricanes Irma and María battered Puerto Rico!!

Let this recorded interview explain itself.

Plenty others have remained quiet.

For that, she has my utmost respect!

San Juan mayor says the Drumpf administration killed thousands through neglect during Hurricane María

Washington (CNN)

The Mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, said Wednesday, August 29, that bureaucracy and inefficiency across local and federal government entities are to blame for the deaths of nearly 3,000 on the island in the wake of Hurricane María, which came to light as part of a newly released study commissioned by the Puerto Rican government.
In particular, Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz blamed Drumpf, federal officials and Puerto Rican officials for not providing more assistance in what the Puerto Rican government now acknowledges was a storm deadlier than Hurricane Katrina.

CYC3

“You know, everybody is responsible because there were people in power that had the opportunity to request more aid, to request more aid when it was reasonable, to request more aid when it was needed, to tell the truth and they didn’t,”

Yulín Cruz told CNN “New Day” host Alisyn Camerota.

“It’s 2,975 people and they’re still calling it an estimate – 2,975 people that will never see the light of day and many of them died because of what was done by the administration and that was silently approved by most of the political class in Puerto Rico.”

There is More than One Kind Of Intelligence …. “🧠 Importance of Recognizing this Can’t be Stressed Enough 🧠…. “!!

AMAZING!

M’gosh, I found this video just now, traversing through the pages of Facebook. Sometimes there’s good information posted there.

The reason this called my attention is because my oldest granddaughter has been having problems in school since she began. Currently she’s in 9th grade. It’s quite the effort to get her interested and perform adequately in school.

This may be the reason!!

Please, take the time to watch the video. Answers to some questions may be there.

People’s first experience of the system is often profoundly alienating. This is not the fault of their teachers but of the system itself, which assesses us for a particular kind of intelligence. We pass or fail on ridiculously narrow criteria.

I was lucky at school because I had the kind of intelligence that they were looking for – linear, analytical, hyperlexic.

It was only after leaving school that I realized that in other respects I was a complete dummy. Give me any spatial task and I fall to pieces. I stumble over cognitive tasks that other people can perform in their sleep.

GoldSwirl

If a kid like that is failing, it’s not the kid’s fault. The fault is with the system. As I say, I don’t blame the teachers because they have to teach to the system. Plenty of teachers desperately want to do creative things with the children, to discover their different intelligences, but they are forbidden to do so.

That child in the rockpools: if the system has failed to recognize his intelligence, the system has failed. If an intelligent child fails the tests designed to assess a different kind of intelligence, they become alienated. Not just from school, but from the system as a whole.

The danger is that they then become alienated from public life, alienated from society. Eventually alienated from themselves.

Glennis Grace (born as Glenda Hulita Elisabeth Batta, 19 June 1978, Amsterdam) is a singer from the Netherlands who in 2005 won the national selection in the Netherlands for the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 for the nation. Grace’s song was the ballad “My Impossible Dream“, but she did not advance to the final.

She was discovered after she won a Dutch TV talent show where she performed Whitney Houston’s “One Moment in Time”. In April 2011 she reached the top of the Dutch singles chart with a rendition of “Afscheid”, a 1998 hit of the band Volumia!. She appeared on the 13th season of America’s Got Talent in 2018.

Her first performance on America’s Got Talent was a cover from Whitney Houston’s “Run To You”.

Earlier in the AGT season, the glamorous singer performed “Run to You” by Whitney Houston for her audition, then followed up with “Nothing Compares 2 U“.

Grace showed her earlier performances were no flukes when she nailed the inspiration song with a touch of soul and some crowd-pleasing power-notes.

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT 2018

~Angel City Chorale~

Season 2018 of  America’s Got Talent is ongoing.

Ever since this choir’s audition, I’ve been so impressed by their amazing talent.

They sang Toto’s ‘AFRICA’ for the auditions. They received the ‘Golden Buzzer’ for ‘Baba Yetu’ and now they performed ‘This Is Me”.

Hope you enjoy their talent as much as I have.

Los Angeles-based choir Angel City Chorale made its mark on the “America’s Got Talent” 2018 live shows Tuesday night with a rousing rendition of “This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman.”

Led by director Sue Fink, this 150-person choir is notable for its inclusion and diversity and this time they stepped things up by engaging with the Dolby Theatre audience. All four “AGT” judges – Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel – were on their feet at the conclusion of Angel City Chorale’s act.

What’s great about them as a choir is that they don’t rely solely on their voices to entertain, but instead include synchronized movements and other sounds to engage the audience in other ways. We already know that the group is one of Simon’s personal favorites, but tonight the entire panel of judges was on their feet for a standing ovation.

~RASTA CHILDREN~

One evening, a few years ago in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil, the PFC crew and I were waiting for an 80-year-old cuica player to perform on a Song Around The World.

I remember it seemed to take forever for him to make it down the hill, as he would stop off in every bar along the way for a drink and some conversation. As we waited I looked and saw a Rastaman walking across the street with his acoustic guitar in hand.

I waved to him and he came over to see what we were doing with all our equipment. I told him about Playing For Change and he agreed to play a song for us while we were waiting. The result was an incredible, spontaneous performance of Dennis Brown’s “Rasta Children.”

His voice reminded me of Peter Tosh and he sang with so much soul that we realized this could be an amazing Song Around The World. Just one man and his guitar playing on the street set the tone for this song and we added a worldwide band of roots musicians around him.

“I and I deal with humanity …”

Playing For Change

~~Published on Jul 6, 2018~~

Song Around The World

Playing For Change (PFC) is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music, born from the shared belief that music has the power to break down boundaries and overcome distances between people.

The primary focus of PFC is to record and film musicians performing in their natural environments and combine their talents and cultural power in innovative videos called Songs Around The World.

Creating these videos motivated PFC to form the Playing For Change Band – a tangible, traveling representation of its mission, featuring musicians met along their journey; and establish the Playing For Change Foundation – a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to building music and art schools for children around the world. Through these efforts, Playing For Change aims to create hope and inspiration for the future of our planet.

~Ahoulaguine Akaline featuring Bombino~

Song Around The World

“Before, our music had the reputation of rebellion, but now it’s the opposite.”

Bombino

The title of this song translates to “I greet my country” and it was written by the great guitar player, Bombino, about his home in Niger after he spent years in exile.

Extremists and the leaders of the country tried to ban the guitar as a symbol of the rebellion.

Bombino once said,

“I do not see my guitar as a gun but rather as a hammer with which to help build the house of the Tuareg people.”

The unity of musicians around the world playing on this song is a statement that music is part of the foundation from which we rebuild our humanity and our world together.
