Florida lawmakers will meet monday, feb. 6, 2023, to complete a state takeover walt disney worlds self-governing district and debate proposals on immigration and election crimes, as republican gov. Ron desantis continues to leverage national political fissures ahead of an expected white house run. Ted shaffrey/ap show more show less 8 of 8 orlando, fla. (Ap) — disney’s government in florida has been the envy of any private business, with its unprecedented powers in deciding what to build and how to build it at the walt disney world resort, issuing bonds and holding the ability to build its own nuclear plant if it wanted. those days are numbered as a new bill released this week puts the entertainment giant’s district firmly in the control of florida’s governor and legislative leaders in what some see as punishment for disneys opposition to the so-called “don’t say gay” law championed by republican gov. Ron desantis and the republican-controlled legislature. “disney wont like it because theyre not in control, said richard foglesong, professor emeritus at rollins college, who wrote a definitive account of disneys reedy creek improvement district in his book, “married to the mouse: walt disney world and orlando. with that loss of control comes an uncertainty about how disneys revamped government and walt disney world, which it governs, will work together — whether the left hand always will be in sync with the right hand as it has been with the company overseeing both entities. more for you h-e-b is hiring 200 new partners to better serve san antonians man arrested, charged with stalking san antonio daytime host the uniqueness of disney government, where building inspectors examine black box structures holding thrill rides instead of office buildings, also complicates matters. The district essentially runs a midsize city. On any given day, as many as 350,000 people are on disney worlds 27,000 acres (11,000 hectares) as theme park visitors, overnight hotel guests or employees. The 55-year-old district has to manage the traffic, dispose of the waste and control the plentiful mosquitoes. “what kind of control is preferable? Control by a private business or corporation, or control by appointed officials, appointed by governor of the state? Foglesong said. “Will they have the expertise to be able to make the new district work as efficiently as the old district works? the bill prohibits anybody who has worked or had a contract with a theme park or entertainment complex in the past three years, or their relatives, from serving on the revamped districts board of supervisors, a prohibition that some experts say eliminates people with expertise in the field. the bills sponsor, florida rep. Fred hawkins, a republican from st. Cloud, defended the exclusion tuesday. “this was a provision i requested, hawkins said. “We want to try to avoid any conflicts of interest of the new board members. under the bills proposals, florida’s governor appoints the five-member board of supervisors to the renamed central florida tourism oversight district instead of disney. Limits would be placed on the districts autonomy by making it subject to oversight and regulation by state agencies, and it would be unable to adopt any codes that conflict with state regulations. The district also would no longer have the ability, if it wanted, to own and operate an airport, stadium, convention center or nuclear power plant. desantis started gunning for disneys private government last year when the entertainment giant publicly opposed what critics call the “don’t say gay” law, which bars instruction on sexual orientation, gender identity and other lessons deemed not age-appropriate in kindergarten through third grade. Republican critics of the disney district also argued it has given the company an unfair advantage over rivals in issuing bonds and financing expansion. the legislature passed a bill last year to dissolve the disney government by june 2023. lawmakers are meeting this week for a special session to complete the state takeover of the district and approve other key conservative priorities of the governor on immigration and voter fraud. A senate committee approved separate bills tuesday to expand the governors migrant relocation program and allow the statewide prosecutor to bring election crime charges. florida rep. Anna eskamani, a democrat from orlando, called the disney bill on monday a “power grab by desantis, a potential 2024 presidential candidate who has emerged as a fierce opponent of what he describes as “woke policies on race, gender and public health. Such positions endear him to the gop’s conservative base but threaten to alienate independents and moderate voters in both parties who are influential in presidential politics. the changes proposed in the legislation were welcomed by at least one group of reedy creek employees — firefighters who have clashed in the past with district leaders. Tim stromsnes, a spokesperson for reedy creek professional firefighters local 2117, said all the current board cares about is “bonds and low-interest loans for building disney infrastructure, and zero about treating its employees fairly. “we think they are going to be more receptive to first responders, stomsnes said tuesday of the proposed new board. “Theyre calling the governor a fascist for doing this ... But he is actually fixing a fascist, disney-owned government. to the relief of taxpayers in neighboring orange and osceola counties, the district wont be dissolved, a prospect that had raised fears that the counties would have to absorb the districts responsibilities and raise property taxes significantly. The reedy creek improvement district has more than $1 billion in bond debt. in a statement, orange county said officials were monitoring the bill. most popular youtuber ranks san antonios last place burgers as best burger in the world naeglins bakery celebrates 155 years of new braunfels memories the boys actor credits texas hospital with life-saving cancer treatments san antonio daytime host esteban solis rear-ended car before alleged dwi downtown san antonio spot bar america changes ownership after 80 years san antonio faces potential heavy rainfall, severe storms this week east central isd middle school threat leads to arrest the new bill appears to address some key questions raised by last years legislation, primarily preserving the districts ability to raise revenue and service outstanding debt, said michael rinaldi, head of local government ratings for fitch ratings. foglesong expects a legal challenge should the bill pass. Disney didnt respond to an inquiry asking about any potential lawsuits. “disney works under a number of different models and jurisdictions around the world, and regardless of the outcome, we remain committed to providing the highest quality experience for the millions of guests who visit each year, jeff vahle, president of walt disney world resort, said in a statement. disney could make an argument that their rights as a private business are being undermined, foglesong said. “it will have political appeal, the arguments they make, in a republican state for a potential presidential candidate, foglesong said. “It will be like, legally, ‘how can you do this to us?

    Director Joslyn Rose Lyons on Capturing Former NBA Star Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf’s Tru
    Posted on Wednesday, February 08 @ 00:00:09 PST (1 reads)
    College Guide Former nba star mahmoud abdul-rauf tells his story — both on and off the court — in the showtime documentary “stand,” with the guidance of director joslyn rose lyons. the documentary examines how abdul-rauf’s standout playing career was derailed by controversy over his decision not to stand during the playing of “the star-spangled banner.” But it also aims to capture more than just the protest — which came some 20 years before nfl star colin kaepernick caught flack for kneeling on the sidelines — and instead focuses on the finer points of abdul-rauf’s life before and after professional basketball, revealing how he found himself taking a stand for his beliefs. “i don’t know if this was the right time, only god knows,” abdul-rauf tells variety, when asked why he decided to share his story now. “However, over the years i’ve read more, i’ve met a wide array of people, so much has changed, while remaining the same. With the uptick in athletes being more vocal, i just felt that this was as good a time as any. And we’re not promised tomorrow.” the film, which debuted last friday, dives deep into abdul-rauf’s history. Born chris jackson in gulfport, mississippi, the son of jacqueline jackson, a single mother who worked hard to raise him and his two brothers, omar and david. The youngster dreamed of becoming one of the world’s best basketball players, all while battling undiagnosed tourette’s syndrome, eventually becoming a star player at lsu and getting drafted into the nba in 1990. In 1991, he converted to islam, changing his name a couple years later. throughout his career, abdul-rauf was known for his specific style of play, described in the documentary by mahershala ali (who was a college basketball player before becoming an oscar-winning actor) as “stephen curry before stephen curry.” In fact, curry also appears in the documentary to discuss the comparisons in their skills, acknowledging that abdul-rauf was a pioneer of the game. But abdul-rauf’s career was cut short. in 1996, members of the media noticed that abdul-rauf wasn’t standing alongside his teammates during the performance of “the star-spangled banner.” The player’s personal decision became an international controversy, with abdul-rauf becoming the target of hate speech and islamophobia. He was suspended and fined by the league and ultimately compromised, opting to pray silently instead, but the controversy had a profound effect on his playing career, with opportunities falling away left and right. Off the court, abdul-rauf continued to be attacked, with the criticism growing so violent that his home was burned to the ground. when lyons boarded the documentary last summer, she was already aware of abdul-rauf — particularly his diagnosis with tourette’s syndrome, his conversion to islam and the news coverage of his protest. “the media did a great job of creating the narrative: he didn’t stand for the anthem, period, and he was muslim,” she recalls. “Because social media didn’t exist, because there wasn’t an opportunity for him to have a movement behind him in the way in which we’ve seen a lot of other athletes have now when they’ve made their stance.” so, it wasn’t until she got the opportunity to dive deeper abdul-rauf’s life that she began to understand the man behind the headlines. “i was very sensitive to the fact that there was a much deeper story there, that was not told,” lyons adds. “And it really excited me to get an opportunity to direct this film. Because part of our job as storytellers is to bring things into focus that were left in the dark.” from lyons and abdul-rauf’s first meeting, it was clear they were on the same page. “joslyn rose is easy to talk to,” abdul-rauf says, praising the filmmaker. “She’s willing to share her ideas and what she has and she’s a good listener. She’s a creative visionary.” part of their connection could be chalked up to their religious background — lyons converted to islam in 2003 – but the link was also, somehow, deeper. “the creative trust was instantly there, and i don’t take that for granted, because it’s not always like that with storytelling and projects. But i also know that when that synergy is present in a project, you have a force behind you that’s bigger,” lyons adds. “It’s the story asking to be told, and it’s telling us how to tell it.” with more than a decade of experience directing music videos and short films under her belt, lyons makes her feature directorial debut with “stand.” “i’m honored to have directed this film for showtime, a network that has been a pillar of inspiration in my filmmaking journey,” she says. “I’m grateful to have worked with an amazing creative team – especially my editor dan schulman-means, who spent countless hours with me finding the structure of this complex story, and my music composer matthew head – whose brilliant score was the rhythm that gave my vision a heartbeat.” much of lyons’ work has existed at the intersection of hip-hop culture, social justice and sports, with the filmmaker serving as a producer on the naacp image award-winning documentary “speaking truth to power” and a directing music content featuring artists like common, rza wu-tang clan, robert glasper, mahershala ali, e-40, talib kweli and vince staples, in addition to her lengthy filmography of award-winning short films. “the storytelling techniques of music and hip hop and activism, there’s an edge there, and my creative process has always been to find the edges and go beyond,” lyons says. “Because when you find the edges and you pass them, that’s where the medicine is of a story. That’s where we step out of our comfort zone, our excellence zone, and we find that genius zone where there’s something magical happening. So, i do feel connected to my roots in that way.” in the case of “stand,” lyons was hired to helm the documentary with production already underway. The team of producers — led by colleen dominguez and tom friend, as well as executive producers sarah allen, mike tollin and mason gordon of mandalay sports media — had spent a considerable amount of time in the field with abdul-rauf, who sat down for lengthy and candid interviews about his experiences. the documentary also features exclusive interviews with abdul-rauf’s family; several basketball stars — including his former teammates and contemporaries, steve kerr, shaquille o’neal and jalen rose; and entertainment figures like ice cube, who founded the big3 basketball league where abdul-rauf now plays. while mainly focused on the cinéma vérité elements of production, lyons conducted the interview with mahershala ali, who she’s worked with for more than 20 years, partnering for music videos (“honor code,” “the majors”) and a short film (2008’s “umis heart”). She also directed a remote shoot with abdul-rauf in gulfport, as he met his paternal family for the first time. “before i came on board, our producers spent extensive time researching his life,” lyons explains. “Something that really struck me [was] about his father. That everything that he did, was through the lens of hoping to gain the attention of his father, so that maybe his father would want to meet him. And that was very powerful.” as lyons reviewed the footage, the topic of abdul-rauf not knowing his father came up multiple times, including one interview in which he confirmed that it was a driving force for him. “[that interview] crystallized for me a bit more how i could string some of these disconnected story beats together,” she says. “Because tourette syndrome, basketball, his stand with the nba and a spiritual conversion, all these different things, the connecting thread comes from something deep within him, of wanting to find, i suppose, peace. So, i leaned into that.” lyons could, again, relate, after learning how to navigate a relationship with her father. “i made my first documentary “soundz of spirit,” when i was about 22 years old,” lyons explains. “My dad never really could show up for birthdays and whatnot, but he showed up at that premiere, and was like, ‘that’s my daughter.’ I understood mahmoud’s need for that.” lyons recognized that desire to be seen, which had turned into a motivating factor in abdul-rauf’s life, much as it did in her own. “through our pain, we often find our purpose,” she explains. “Mahmoud’s pain was potentially like a compass for him. And it maybe propelled him — like often it does in our lives — to pursue greatness, to do great things. Like they say, ‘where the cracks are, that’s where the rose grows.’ I think mahmoud is a testimony to that.” that idea of a long-lost love, is something all audiences can relate to, she acknowledges. “there is that for everyone — whether it’s a dream deferred, whether it’s a parent who never showed up, or it’s literally a long-lost love, it’s through those heartbreaks, and those struggles that we do find our strengths,” lyons shares. “Oftentimes, those things that are missing are the very things that help us strive to, to become who we’re meant to be.” one motif that lyons used to capture abdul-rauf’s inner journey was shadowboxing, an exercise that, fortuitously, he had begun practicing years prior. It’s a visual metaphor, lyons explains, “so that we could see visually how he faced these shadows and found his light.” it was one of the first things filmmaker and subject discussed. “We talked about how [he] was a fighter in his life,” she recalls. “And i had been in the trenches studying shadowboxing for my first narrative scripted feature, ‘shadowbox.’ I couldn’t help but think about mahmoud’s journey through that lens because he walked through literal fires — his home was burned to the ground by the kkk — he walked through spiritual fires, emotional fires and he still rose like a phoenix. He still overcame. He was an alchemist.” from there, lyons began conceptualizing the shoot, creating a look book of the visuals, aiming to capture abdul-rauf’s “warrior spirit” on camera. “sometimes the armor that we have to put on to have the strength and the courage and the fearlessness to face those battles, we don’t always also have the ability to shine our light at the same time,” she says. “He never stopped shining, and that just makes him a very, very profound human being. I really wanted to show that the humanity of his story.” abdul-rauf also shared what he hopes audiences will take away from the finished film. “whatever someone is going through in their life, we all have similar issues in our lives as human beings,” he said. “Some people are dealing with faith, family, finances, not feeling adequate enough because of their upbringing, how to navigate through all of that and develop yourself and stand up to be able to face anything that comes your way.” likewise, lyons hopes audiences will be inspired by abdul-rauf’s story. “i do hope that that his stand will be a pillar, a beacon of light, kind of a north star to some degree for other people in our world to take their stand,” she says. “I want to believe that mahmoud’s story is an example, that you can be fearless in the face of anything and overcome it. Because he was.” though we often equate vulnerability to weakness, she explains, it was abdul-rauf’s courage to be vulnerable in his interviews for the film, as well as throughout his career as a basketball player and as a man on a spiritual journey that were the key to finding his strength. “i also would hope this film and mahmoud’s story are a reminder for people that being vulnerable is actually part of being a warrior,” she adds. “It’s never too late to stand up for what you believe in.” read more about:

Use a left join to prevent joins beyond the number of possible goals.

In fact, this is (half)-implemented on college hockey news right now. I say half, because its finding x-game spans from beginning or end of season -- which is slightly easier than any rolling x-game span, though has its own challenges. event level would be the same thing, in essence. re: union @ cornell date: february 07, 2023 05:08pm what a rush.

Penn made a bunch of spending cuts that year, many were rescinded, not hockey. penn has a womens student organization hockey team; that seems to sound like club hockey. if hockey came back, itd have to be two teams, not one. Its not impossible. The nhl is as far south as florida, arizona, california. Other than arizona state, princeton sits at 40 degrees north latitude, lindenwood (i had to look it up) in st.

    Encanto sweeps all three visual media Grammy categories

    College Guide Photo: jay l. Clendenin / los angeles times via getty images news encanto sweeps the 2023 grammys: disneys animated smash wins 3 categories we dont talk about bruno and the film soundtrack took home three golden gramophones at the 65th grammy awards. it seems people do talk about bruno. the viral hit song from encanto won the golden gramophone for best song written for visual media at the 2023 grammys, officially making the animated disney film sweep the three visual media categories. Encanto also took home awards for best compilation soundtrack and best score soundtrack. released in november 2021, encanto — a colorful, earnest and humorous exploration of family and self-acceptance, set in the hills of colombia — is now the first film to sweep the visual media categories since the creation of the compilation soundtrack category in 1999. penned by lin-manuel miranda, the ensemble song we dont talk about bruno beat out works from beyoncé, taylor swift, lady gaga, angélique kidjo, and billie eilish and finneas o’connell. In 2022, the relatable tale of family drama rocketed up the billboard hot 100 to become the no. 1 song in the u.S. (The second time a disney track has done so; aladdin’s “a whole new world” hit the top of the charts in 1993). read more: watch the 2022 nominees for best song written for visual media nominees at the 2023 grammy awards but bruno is far from the only hit from the magical world of encanto — the soundtrack produced seven hot 100 singles, including the top 10 hit about anxiety, surface pressure. Academy voters recognized the album as whole with the best compilation soundtrack award, which was accepted by producer mike elizondo and disneys vice president of music tom macdougall. Fellow contenders in the category were top gun: maverick, stranger things west side story and elvis. encantos first win of the night, for best score soundtrack, may have been the most moving and apropos of the films groundbreaking nature. With her gramophone in hand, mexican-american composer germaine franco said she believed herself to be the first woman of color to win the grammy award. Franco also thanked all the musicians who spent all their time making that beautiful music for the world to be a better place, noting that many of the musicians playing on the premiere ceremony stage also performed on the soundtrack. read more: the soundtrack hit makes a comeback: how encanto, top gun & ‘black panther’ went from chart-toppers to grammy nominations encantos success at the 2023 grammys exemplifies how soundtracks and their singles are, once again, becoming a key tool in the success of films.

The visual experience was curated by cey adams, the founding creative director of def jam and legendary imagemaker behind iconic logos for the label and mary j. Blige. The designer of a new book from the smithsonian national museum of african american history and culture, adams is currently touring a retrospective exhibition featuring 40 years of his work. adams called on photographer friends janette beckman, danny clinch, brian b+ cross, greg noire, michael lavine and gunner stahl to share standout shots from their acclaimed work, and the exhibit included some of the most recognizable images from the culture, from the 1970s to the present. In so doing, he highlighted the vital role of these photographers in the visual artist development of hip-hop. that danny clinch image of tupac was iconic, adams offers as an example. That’s the image you see in your sleep when you think of tupac! When you think of salt-n-pepa, you think of them in those 8-ball jackets, and that’s one of janette beckman’s photos. #grammysnextgen power brunch on wednesday, the grammy house hosted the inaugural power brunch for the new, astonishingly accomplished class of 35 official #grammysnextgen ambassadors and advisors.

Its also a night when the most successful people in the music industry come together not as competitors, but in celebration. Or as davis put it, we come here to break bread. returning to the swank beverly hilton after a two year break, the fête was sponsored by hilton, ibm, jbl and mastercard. An eclectic mix of personalities — a hallmark of the gala — graced the red carpet as onlookers gathered outside the hotel, hoping for a glimpse of industry excellence. it’s crazy, måneskin bassist victoria de angelis tells grammy.Com; the italian rock band was nominated for best new artist. It has just been super fun. We’re meeting so many artists we love, de angelis noted, pointing out fellow party guest, metallica rocker lars ulrich. meanwhile frankie valli, who was nominated for best new artist in 1962 as part of his legendary vocal group the four seasons, had a similar sentiment. It’s a lot of fun getting to see clive and all of the people i’ve known over the years, valli told grammy.Com, noting he’s known davis for at least a half century. It’s just a great evening out. the performance portion of the night began with maneksin taking the stage first, ripping out their singles i wanna be your slave and beggin’ — the latter the band’s star-making cover of the 1967 original by the four seasons. we’re old school guys, alice cooper tells grammy.Com. We’re coming here to see what the new artists are doing. providing a link between the songs of yesteryear and today’s hottest talents, davis then surprised the audience when valli took the stage to perform his own, can’t take my eyes off of you. It was a moment the audience relished, with the night’s guests, from joni mitchell to janelle monáe, apple ceo tim cook, sharon stone and machine gun kelly singing along to its earworm chorus of i love you baby! offset, cardi b, judy greenwald, lyorcohen and janelle monae | emma mcintyre/getty images for the recording academy aside from the industry veterans (including performer elvis costello), those from the new class making their grand debuts on stage at this year’s pre-grammy gala include myles frost, the tony-winning star of mj the musical, as well the hip-hop star latto. Nominated for best new artist and one of 2022’s breakout stars, she had attendees on their feet with her rousing hits sunshine and big energy. Lil baby, meanwhile, participated in a salute to the 50th anniversary of hip-hop curated by swiss beatz, performing his songs forever and, appropriately, california breeze. Lauren daigle, who recently signed to atlantic records, also delivered a memorable first performance at the party of her own with a cover of dusty springfields son of a preacher man. craig kallman, clive davis, julie greenwald, and ceo of the recording academy harvey mason jr. | Lester cohen/getty images for the recording academy currently celebrating its 75th anniversary, daigle’s appearance and song choice was meant to bridge the gap between the atlantic’s storied history with its newest artist, and coincides with this year’s icon award recipients: atlantic music group chairman and ceo julie greenwald and atlantic records chairman and ceo craig kallman. the people who inspired me every day are my artists, said greenwald during her acceptance speech. I have loved every journey we have gone on together. Being able to play some small part in bringing your music, art and creative vision to the world has been the greatest gift and i’m so appreciative of every marketing plan i was allowed to dream up, every video treatment i pitched, photoshoot we collaborated on and all of the campaigns we launched. it was a sentiment atlantic star cardi b reciprocated. When i was in the middle of making my first album, i was very scared, she recalled during a heartfelt speech. I was pregnant and afraid to tell anyone, in case i had to decide between my family or my career because i knew that happens to other artists on other labels. But with craig and julie, the exact opposite happened. You told me i could do both, and i will never, ever forget that. For real. Deadass. lizzo | alberto e. Rodriguez/getty images for the recording academy meanwhile, lizzo delivered her own tribute in song with a performance of her song break up twice from her grammy-nominated album special. Another tribute came in the form of sheryl crow honoring the late christine mcvie with a heart-wrenching rendition of her signature songbird as well as the fleetwood mac classic say you love me. paying homage to the late whitney houston also served as a theme for the night, where her family and collaborators remembered the star’s legacy. In tribute, jennifer hudson offered an anthemic rendition of the icon’s the greatest love of all, armed with her powerhouse vocals and a passion for the artist herself. honoring whitney tonight makes me feel very, very blessed, houston’s close collaborator, friend and songwriter narada micheal walden tells grammy.Com. God is in charge and her spirit is still with us, especially being in this very hotel she passed away years ago. for narada, the emotion is still fresh. She gave so much, not just as a great singer, her heartpower and love was so pure. The energy we wanted to put in the music, we really wanted it to live forever. We thought about it and prayed about it, and here we are still living it. jennifer hudson | lester cohen/getty images for the recording academy houston’s legacy was also the theme of kevin costner’s opening speech; the two co-starring in the bodyguard. Maybe this isnt the room for it but i dont want to miss the moment and this is from the heart, costner said as a hush fell over the room. Neither one of us, in the end, could protect your beloved whitney. But your fingerprints on her life are clean, my friend, he said, referring to davis. You were a miracle in her life. it was not only davis’ impact on houston’s life, but the industry itself that was a topic of conversation all night. Getting ready to celebrate his 91st birthday, the legend was still a master of ceremonies with the night’s starry guestlist and performers showing their respect. lil wayne | emma mcintyre/getty images for the recording academy i’d like to thank mr. Davis for having me, lil wayne humbly said as he delivered some of his biggest hits, from a milli to lollipop. clive davis’s parties are just always off the chain, the artist damon elliott tells grammy.Com he’s like a dad to me. paul schaffer recalled his own memories with clive to grammy.Com. My very first time meeting him was in the 70s, he says. I used to play on the barry manilow records and barry was signed to arista [records]. I’ll never forget when ron dante, his producer, brought me in to play clive a song. Now, schaffer adds that he’s been attending the pre-grammy gala for 11 years with his daughter, victoria.

Fallon/afp via getty images news heres what happened at the recording academys 2023 special merit awards ceremony honoring heart, nirvana, nile rodgers, the supremes & more in addition to seven music legends receiving the lifetime achievement award, the grammy week event honored recipients of the music educator award, trustees awards and technical grammy awards. amid the madness of grammy week, there was an air of tranquility surrounding the wilshire ebell theatre on the afternoon of feb. 4. The sunlit streets were nearly empty, the red carpet was discreetly hidden from public view. Inside the theater, music royalty, entertainment journalists and grammy nominees congregated for one of the weeks most emotionally charged events: the special merit awards ceremony. music teacher pamela dawson beamed as recording academy ceo harvey mason jr. Handed her the 2023 grammy music educator award. Mama dawson, as she is known among her students at desoto high school in texas, is loved by all for her relentless positivity and encouragement. I thank you god for giving me the gift of music, she said. My mother believed in me even when i didnt. My heritage is a big loving heart that i can give to others. in the technical grammy award department, the academy recognized the efforts of the audio engineering society and dr. Andy hildebrand — inventor of the auto-tune software program. the trustees awards honorees were henry diltz, who photographed iconic album covers of the 60s and 70s; the late ellis marsalis, jazz pianist and educator; and the late jim stewart, founder of the mythical stax records. dad had an open-door policy that helped create a utopian reality, said stewarts daughter lori, addressing the labels unusual-for-the-time policy of working with talented artists regardless of their racial or ethnic background. More than a business, stax was a family. then, it was time to salute the recipients of the lifetime achievement award, and the gallery of selected artists painted a wondrous picture of popular music — from classic rock and grunge to soul, hip-hop, funk, jazz, and blues. in his typical unconventional fashion, 10-time grammy winner bobby mcferrin accepted his award doing what he does best: singing. I want to have some fun today, began the dont worry be happy hitmaker in his inimitable falsetto. Backed briefly on vocals by his three adult children, mcferrin smiled and improvised, surprised and delighted, crediting his late father — the first black singer to be offered a contract at the metropolitan opera — as a major inspiration. Have fun, he concluded. Play. Dont think. Be good to yourself. equally moving — but in a more grungy, seattle kind of way — was seeing the surviving members of 90s pioneers nirvana. Kurt cobain is never far away, said the bands bassist and founding member krist novoselic. Just turn on the radio. He also thanked young people from all over the world for the many fan letters he continues to receive, as drummer dave grohl and guitarist pat smear stood by his side, nodding approvingly. legendary blues singer ma rainey (1886-1939) received a long-overdue induction to the lifetime achievement gallery. On hand to collect the award were her great nephew, frank nix, and great great niece cassandra behler. Ma was an amazing performer and businesswoman, said behler. I cant imagine the sacrifices she made for her career and lifestyle. prolific beyond any reasonable expectation, guitarist and producer nile rodgers was visibly moved — almost lost for words. Im sorry to be so emotional, he told the crowd, which responded with an even bigger round of applause. This journey was a series of steps. the founder of disco-funk collective chic, rodgers is known for his unmistakable guitar sound — adding waves of funk to every single genre it touches — and sensitive production work. When he thanked the musicians that he worked with, the list was regal, including david bowie, diana ross, bryan ferry, and beyoncé — the latter of whom he would go on to win best r&b song with at the 2023 grammys (and accept on her behalf!). do you like my coat?, Asked english-american rapper and producer slick rick the ruler, showing off an elegant, light purple coat over his suit and matching tie. Macys womens section. Slicks speech was as witty as his rapping. He mentioned listening to dionne warwicks walk on by as a kid, then outlined his love for the music of the beatles, the supremes, jamaican dancehall and hip-hop — and his fateful move to the u.S. In 1976. fittingly, the supremes were also honorees this year. During their induction, florence ballards daughter lisa chapman explained that she couldnt share any personal anecdotes because her mother died when she was only 3 years old. I thank [the late] mary wilson, because she never left my moms side, she said. Theyre probably sipping on the finest champagne right now, added wilsons daughter turkessa babich. They are always with us. the last artists to be honored were two immensely talented sisters, ann & nancy wilson of heart. The sibling duo changed the nature of the game for women in hard rock, and guitarist nancy wilson spoke of her beginnings in music. I left college in 1974 to join the band, she recalled. Our dream was to be the beatles. Not to be their girlfriends, or marry one of them, but to be them — and we did it. wilson was effusive in praising her sister, powerhouse singer ann. We survived the sheer insanity of a rock n roll circus. We were two military brats, two badasses, and we stood up. We rocked our butts off, and we did all of it together. wilsons last words — bringing the event to its conclusion — were dedicated to the fans: you were always the reason for us to catch dreams in our butterfly nets. lizzo, beyoncé, bad bunny and more celebrate 2023 grammys wins on social media photo: neilson barnard/getty images for the recording academy list taylor swifts essential music videos, from you belong with me to anti-hero in honor of taylor swifts history-making best music video win at the 2023 grammys for all too well: the short film, revisit some of the superstars most iconic videos to date. at the 2023 grammys, taylor swift won best music video for her short film set to the 10-minute version of all too well. its a golden gramophone the singer has won once before, nearly a decade ago for the star-studded visual to 1989 single bad blood. But this win was different. As swift collected the 12th grammy of her storied career, this victory came from a video she had single-handedly directed; it also marked the first time an artist won the category for a video they directed solo. delivering iconic visuals is nothing new for the superstar, either. After all, shes been doing it from her earliest days as a teenage wunderkind known for penning diaristic country-pop hits like tim mcgraw, our song, love story, and you belong with me. But over the years, swifts precision in executing her singular, cinematic vision has only gotten more creative, more exact and more ambitious — and now, those talents are grammy-winning. to celebrate swifts big grammy win for all too well: the short film, grammy.Com has distilled her extensive filmography down to the 11 most essential and unforgettable music videos in the swiftian canon — from teardrops on my guitar to her latest no. 1 smash anti-hero. check out grammy.Coms picks for the most iconic taylor swift music videos below. teardrops on my guitar (taylor swift) although it was only her second single, the video for 2006s teardrops on my guitar contains many of the hallmarks for what would become swifts signature visual aesthetic throughout her early career. Unrequited love interest in the form of one tree hills tyler hilton? Check. An iridescent gown fit for a fairytale? Check. A narrative arc that establishes our girl as the underdog, who you cant help rooting for to get her happy ending? Check and check. you belong with me (fearless) is there any video more quintessential from swifts country era than the one for you belong with me? Not only did the fearless visual give swifties their queen in her now-iconic junior jewels t-shirt, but it established the goofy side of swifts personality — as yet unseen in her filmography — as well as her willingness to embody characters in her videos, like the brunette mean-girl of a cheerleader and an ultra-relatable band geek who are competing for the heart of the hunky boy next door. mine (speak now) mine was the lead single for swifts third album — not to be confused with fellow speak now single ours, which led off the 2010 lps deluxe repackaging. And though shed dabbled in the past on videos for im only me when im with you and the best day, the song marked the pop stars first true directorial effort helped along by co-director roman white. And she was clearly taking notes that would inspire her future work during the process — just watch the scene where she and her rakish, blonde fiancé get into a screaming match in their kitchen and tell any swiftie it doesnt look familiar… everything has changed feat. Ed sheeran (red) this 2012 collaboration with ed sheeran upped the ante in swifts videography by handing off the bulk of the storytelling to other people entirely — in this case, a pair of elementary schoolers portraying younger versions of tay and the thinking out loud crooner. The close friends and frequent collaborators only appear in the final moments of the video, but the kids and their adorable story would pick up nearly a decade later in the visual for the pairs 2022 duet remix of sheerans the joker and the queen. blank space (1989) what does swift do when the media paints her as a serial dater — verging on maneater — whos constantly burning her way through a revolving door of famous men? Write a smash hit about it, of course. With help from joseph kahn, swift turns tabloid fodder into cinematic gold by casting herself as the unhinged nightmare dressed like a daydream, always ready to make the bad guys good for a weekend and add their names to her little black book. Too bad the poor fools wont find out until its too late that their names are in red, underlined… look what you made me do (reputation) #taylorswiftisoverparty? As if. With the release of the look what you made me do video, swift officially entered her reputation era and shifted her skewed public perception off its tilted axis and back in her favor. Yes, there were snakes serving tea, bathtubs filled with diamonds, and a taylor or two for every era that had come before. But the true feat of the glossy, karma-fueled visual was reminding the superstars fans, doubters and haters alike that her ability to come back from the proverbial dead with a smash single in hand will always be stronger than anything thrown at her. the man (lover) for her solo directorial debut, swift wanted to make both a statement and a splash. So she chose to skewer the sexism and toxic masculinity shes endured throughout her career as the man, cleverly dressing in drag as a rich, cocky manspreader by the name of — you guessed it — tyler swift. As has become custom over the years, the music video was filled with easter eggs and cameos from famous faces like tiktok star loren gray, dwayne johnson and even her own father. The video eventually made history as well, when swift became the first solo female to ever take home the prize for best director at the mtv video music awards in 2020. cardigan (folklore) filmed at the height of the pandemic, swift proved with the video for cardigan that she is always capable of creating magic, even in the most challenging of circumstances. Taking cues from the fantasy and period films she had devoured during the early days of quarantine, the visual took a more fantastical turn than many of the past videos in the stars filmography. As the sole star of the show, a nightgown-clad swift is transported to magical worlds by her trusty piano — a perfect parallel to the fictional worlds she dreamed up on folklore. willow (evermore) when evermore arrived by surprise just five months after its older sister, swift announced that she was venturing deeper into the metaphorical woods. And with that, the music video for willow picks up right where cardigan left off. The clip doubles down on the fantasy of folklore by setting the singer on a journey filled with witchcraft, scenes straight out of a storybook, and an onscreen reunion with taeok lee, who last appeared as a backup dancer on the red tour in 2013. all too well: the short film (red (taylors version)) there was really only one way to do the mystical 10-minute version of all too well justice after swift dug it out from the vault for red (taylors version) — a short film, directed by swift herself. Enlisting actors dylan obrien and sadie sink as the doomed lovers at the center of the autumnal tale, swift wrote the treatment, took charge on set, and manifested her creative vision with her most fully-realized project to date. The sweeping, 15-minute mini-movie soon inspired swift to write and direct her first feature film, and helped the singer win the 2023 grammy for best music video. anti-hero (midnights) its me, hi, im the problem, its me. With that witty inner dialogue, swift introduced swifties to the most hilariously self-destructive version of herself. But even self-loathing looks like a blast through the superstars point of view, whether shes outrunning ghosts dressed in whimsical 70s-style bedsheets or commiserating with her gigantic monster of a doppelgänger who just wants to be part of the gang. the taylor swift essentials: 13 songs that display her storytelling prowess and genre-bouncing genius

    Disney faces losing control of its kingdom with Florida bill
    Posted on Wednesday, February 08 @ 00:00:09 PST (1 reads)
    College Guide Published: 6:15 pm orlando, fla. (Ap) — disney’s government in florida has been the envy of any private business, with its unprecedented powers in deciding what to build and how to build it at the walt disney world resort, issuing bonds and holding the ability to build its own nuclear plant if it wanted. those days are numbered as a new bill released this week puts the entertainment giant’s district firmly in the control of florida’s governor and legislative leaders in what some see as punishment for disney’s opposition to the so-called “don’t say gay” law championed by republican gov. Ron desantis and the republican-controlled legislature. “disney won’t like it because they’re not in control,” said richard foglesong, professor emeritus at rollins college, who wrote a definitive account of disney’s reedy creek improvement district in his book, “married to the mouse: walt disney world and orlando.” with that loss of control comes an uncertainty about how disney’s revamped government and walt disney world, which it governs, will work together — whether the left hand always will be in sync with the right hand as it has been with the company overseeing both entities. the uniqueness of disney’ government, where building inspectors examine black box structures holding thrill rides instead of office buildings, also complicates matters. The district essentially runs a midsize city. On any given day, as many as 350,000 people are on disney world’s 27,000 acres (11,000 hectares) as theme park visitors, overnight hotel guests or employees. The 55-year-old district has to manage the traffic, dispose of the waste and control the plentiful mosquitoes. “what kind of control is preferable? Control by a private business or corporation, or control by appointed officials, appointed by governor of the state?” Foglesong said. “Will they have the expertise to be able to make the new district work as efficiently as the old district works?” the bill prohibits anybody who has worked or had a contract with a theme park or entertainment complex in the past three years, or their relatives, from serving on the revamped district’s board of supervisors, a prohibition that some experts say eliminates people with expertise in the field. the bill’s sponsor, florida rep. Fred hawkins, a republican from st. Cloud, defended the exclusion tuesday. “this was a provision i requested,” hawkins said. “We want to try to avoid any conflicts of interest of the new board members.” under the bill’s proposals, florida’s governor appoints the five-member board of supervisors to the renamed central florida tourism oversight district instead of disney. Limits would be placed on the district’s autonomy by making it subject to oversight and regulation by state agencies, and it would be unable to adopt any codes that conflict with state regulations. The district also would no longer have the ability, if it wanted, to own and operate an airport, stadium, convention center or nuclear power plant. desantis started gunning for disney’s private government last year when the entertainment giant publicly opposed what critics call the “don’t say gay” law, which bars instruction on sexual orientation, gender identity and other lessons deemed not age-appropriate in kindergarten through third grade. Republican critics of the disney district also argued it has given the company an unfair advantage over rivals in issuing bonds and financing expansion. the legislature passed a bill last year to dissolve the disney government by june 2023. lawmakers are meeting this week for a special session to complete the state takeover of the district and approve other key conservative priorities of the governor on immigration and voter fraud. A senate committee approved separate bills tuesday to expand the governor’s migrant relocation program and allow the statewide prosecutor to bring election crime charges. florida rep. Anna eskamani, a democrat from orlando, called the disney bill on monday a “power grab” by desantis, a potential 2024 presidential candidate who has emerged as a fierce opponent of what he describes as “woke” policies on race, gender and public health. Such positions endear him to the gop’s conservative base but threaten to alienate independents and moderate voters in both parties who are influential in presidential politics. the changes proposed in the legislation were welcomed by at least one group of reedy creek employees — firefighters who have clashed in the past with district leaders. Tim stromsnes, a spokesperson for reedy creek professional firefighters local 2117, said all the current board cares about is “bonds and low-interest loans for building disney infrastructure, and zero about treating its employees fairly.” “we think they are going to be more receptive to first responders,” stomsnes said tuesday of the proposed new board. “They’re calling the governor a fascist for doing this … but he is actually fixing a fascist, disney-owned government.” to the relief of taxpayers in neighboring orange and osceola counties, the district won’t be dissolved, a prospect that had raised fears that the counties would have to absorb the district’s responsibilities and raise property taxes significantly. The reedy creek improvement district has more than $1 billion in bond debt. in a statement, orange county said officials were monitoring the bill. the new bill appears to address some key questions raised by last year’s legislation, primarily preserving the district’s ability to raise revenue and service outstanding debt, said michael rinaldi, head of local government ratings for fitch ratings. foglesong expects a legal challenge should the bill pass. Disney didn’t respond to an inquiry asking about any potential lawsuits. “disney works under a number of different models and jurisdictions around the world, and regardless of the outcome, we remain committed to providing the highest quality experience for the millions of guests who visit each year,” jeff vahle, president of walt disney world resort, said in a statement. disney could make an argument that their rights as a private business are being undermined, foglesong said. “it will have political appeal, the arguments they make, in a republican state for a potential presidential candidate,” foglesong said. “It will be like, legally, ‘how can you do this to us?’ And politically, ‘how can you do this to a corporation that has done so much for the state of florida?” ___ associated press writer anthony izaguirre in tallahassee, florida contributed to this report. ___ follow mike schneider on twitter at @mikeschneiderap
