New Amy Winehouse Biopic In The Works, With Winehouse’s Parents Serving As Executive-Directors

Posted on by

first_imgThe Guardian reports that a new Amy Winehouse biopic is on the way. Amy Winehouse’s family has reportedly signed a deal to make a biopic about the late singer taken far too young. Monumental Pictures’ Alison Owen (Lily Allen’s mother) and Debra Hayward will produce the film, with Winehouse’s parents serving as the film’s executive producers. Amy’s life story will be written by Geoff Deane, and shooting for the biopic is due to start in 2019. Proceeds from the film will benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation.Mitch Winehouse, Amy’s father, said the family had previously been approached regarding a biopic but previously felt the time was still not right. In a statement, Mitch Winehouse said, “We now feel able to celebrate Amy’s extraordinary life and talent. And we know through the Amy Winehouse Foundation that the true story of her illness can help so many others who might be experiencing similar issues.”On July 27th, 2011, London Ambulance Service was called to rising-star singer Amy Winehouse‘s Camden flat. Unfortunately, the medics were too late—Winehouse was found dead, having succumbed to her arduous battle with drug and alcohol abuse at just 27 years old. Though she released only two albums before her death—2003’s Frank and 2006’s Back To Black–her work on the two releases catapulted her to worldwide success and recognition. Back To Black netted the singer five Grammys (including Best New Artist, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year) in 2008, tying the record for most wins by any female artist in a single year at that time.Winehouse’s tragically brief career was defined as much by her remarkable talent as it was by her struggles to keep her life together offstage. From an early age, she dealt with a litany of health issues, from drug addiction to alcohol abuse to eating disorders. These problems were only intensified as she saw her popularity and notoriety increase. As Winehouse explained to The Telegraph in her last interview before her death, “I’m not a natural born performer. I’m a natural singer, but I’m quite shy, really…You know what it’s like? I don’t mean to be sentimental or soppy but its a little bit like being in love, when you can’t eat, you’re restless, it’s like that. But then the minute you go on stage, everything’s OK. The minute you start singing.”[H/T The Guardian]last_img read more

Haynes, Simmons, Reifer shortlisted for head coaching job

Posted on by

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC) – Batting legend Desmond Haynes and former head coach Phil Simmons lead the race to be the next full-time head coach of the West Indies men’s team, with current interim coach Floyd Reifer also making the shortlist.Cricket West Indies (CWI) said yesterday that Haynes, Reifer and Simmons emerged from a list of six candidates that took part in the initial interview process which concluded on Monday – and there will now be a final round of interviews to be completed by October 11.“Critical areas discussed were applications of cricket-specific experience, technical knowledge, performance planning process, performance measurement, performance-driven culture and also CWI’s core values of passion, accountability, respect, integrity and team excellence,” said a CWI media release.A CWI panel comprising vice-president Dr. Kishore Shallow, who is chairman of the CWI’s human resource committee; CWI director of cricket, Jimmy Adams; CWI human resources manager, Oneka Martin-Bird; CWI independent director, Debra Coryat-Patton; and England-based coaching educator Gordon Lord conducted the interviews with the three former West Indies batsmen and other candidates.Phil Simmons eyeing a return to coach West Indies teamHaynes, a former West Indies captain and one half of the most durable opening partnership in the history of the international game, with Gordon Greenidge, had previously expressed interest in the position.He brings the wealth of a decorated playing career in which he scored 7 487 runs in 116 Tests and 8 648 runs in 238 One-day Internationals between 1978 and 1994.Haynes had also held the post of batting consultant briefly when Ottis Gibson was head coach and has had coaching stints with several Twenty20 franchise sides in recent times.Simmons, also a former West Indies opener, was head coach for close to two years before being sacked in September 2016 following differences with the leadership of CWI – but was scooped up by Afghanistan and guided the side to the 2019 World Cup in England.Reifer, a former Barbados and West Indies captain, and long-standing head coach of Combined Campuses & Colleges, is currently interim head coach.He had guided the side during the limited-overs stages of last year’s tour of Bangladesh before Richard Pybus was controversially appointed to the position for the home series against England and delivered a 2-1 victory in three-Test series, 2-2 draw in a five-match, One-day International rubber (one game was rained out) and a 2-1 loss in a three-match Twenty20 International series.Following the England series, a change in the hierarchy of CWI swept Ricky Skerritt and Shallow into power in the posts of president and vice-president respectively, and Pybus was sent packing just weeks before the World Cup in England following a review of the team’s coaching and selection policies.Current interim West Indies head coach, Floyd ReiferReifer was again installed in the position on an interim basis, but the side has had tepid success under his guidance, winning just two matches against hosts Ireland in a triangular ODI series, where they lost three times, including the final to Bangladesh, before misfiring in the World Cup and losing all but one rained-out match in a home series against India.“I am pleased to see such high quality West Indian talent and experience in the shortlisted candidates for the head coach position,” said CWI president Ricky Skerritt.“I believe that any one of the three finalists would be an excellent choice as head coach, and I wish them every success at the final stage of interviews.”He added: “On behalf of the board and all stakeholders, I want to thank all of the applicants for coming forward to offer their services for this important leadership role.“Vice-president Shallow and his research and interview team have been most impressive with their efforts to date, and I want to say thank you to them as well.”The post of head coach was made vacant, when Australian Stuart Law walked away from the position following the side’s previous tour of India at the end of last year, and there have been three interim appointments since.South African Nic Pothas held the position for part of the subsequent tour of Bangladesh before the involvement of Reifer and Pybus.last_img read more

The Cloud Made Open Source “Invisible” This Year

first_imgRelated Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#cloud#Trends 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…center_img Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting klint finley “The big open source news in 2010 is that open source became essentially invisible,” writes outgoingCanonical COO Matt Asay in his 2010 year in review column for The Register. It’s not that the media stopped reporting on open source Asay explains. In fact, according to Google News, the number of stories mentioning the phrase “open source” roughly doubled. What’s happening is that open source is moving behind the scenes, thanks in large part to cloud computing.Asay wrote:Hence, for example, 2010 was the year that we talked a great deal about NoSQL citizens like Cassandra and MongoDB, but not so much because of the companies formed to monetize them (Riptano and 10gen, respectively), but rather because of the exciting web applications built using them.These web applications, mostly built using open-source technologies like Hadoop and Lucene, have turned the idea of an operating system on its head. Or rather, in Tim O’Reilly’s words, the operating system is now “the whole web.”Asay makes a really interesting point: open source hasn’t destroyed the dominance of proprietary software. Instead, open source projects are primarily funded by the proprietary profits of companies like Facebook, GoogleYahoo!It’s a brave new world for open source, and not the one that Richard Stallman envisioned 27 years ago. In fact, he’s now cautioning people against the cloud (our own Alex Williams echoed some of these sentiments in his open letter to Google today).Where do you think open source will be going next year?last_img read more

A New Way of Conquering PTSD?: US Army Research on Anesthetic Injection

Posted on by

first_imgBy: Bari Sobelson, MS, LMFTPixabay[Patch by ulleo, May 18, 2017, CCO]While we all experience some level of stress after a traumatic event, what distinguishes PTSD  is long-lasting symptoms that don’t subside, may get worse over time, and interfere with daily living. For years, the two main treatments for PTSD have been psychotherapy and medication; with some people choosing to use one or the other and some using a combination of both. However, the US Army is researching a new type of treatment; one that involves a single injection to the neck.The Washington Times published an article this week on the study of Stellate Ganglion Block (SGB) which involves injecting an anesthetic into a bundle of nerves that sits near the base of the neck. According to the Military Times, this treatment technique is showing promising results “relieving symptoms in 70 percent of combat veterans who received it once or more”. This therapy “quelled symptoms of PTSD, such as sleep disturbances, anxiety, and depression… according to the report published in October”.To see how this SGB treatment works, see the video below from the Wall Street Journal:As mentioned in the Washington Times, “Psychologist Ron Hoover, who oversees the study, told the Journal that military officials must take a conservative position when it comes to such treatment… [The Army doesn’t] want to risk service member’s lives or experiment on them”.  It will be interesting to see how this study evolves and what results are discovered. This post was written by Bari Sobelson, MS, LMFT, the Social Media and Programming Coordination Specialist for the MFLN Family Development Team. The Family Development team aims to support the development of professionals working with military families.  Find out more about the Military Families Learning Network Family Development concentration area on our website, Facebook, and Twitter.last_img read more

Andy Murray confirms his fitness for Wimbledon

Posted on by

first_imgAndy Murray will begin his Wimbledon title defence on Monday after confirming his recovery from a hip injury that has disrupted his preparation for this year’s tournament.”It’s felt much better the last few days,” the world number one told a media conference on Sunday.”If I feel like I do today, I’ll be fine to play the tournament. I’ll be fine to play seven matches.”Murray, who will play Kazakhstan’s Alexander Bublik, a lucky loser ranked 134, in the Centre Court opener on Monday, said he felt no lasting effects from the injury which caused him to pull out of two exhibition matches at London’s Hurlingham Club last week.”I’ve had hip problems since I was very young,” said the Scot, who added that he had benefited from several days’ rest. “It’s not something new to me. It’s just been very sore the last few weeks.”It was giving me quite a lot of trouble moving to certain shots and getting into certain positions.”This is an extremely important tournament, so you worry a little bit. It’s a little bit stressful if you can’t practise for a few days.”You really want to be preparing, training as much as you can to get ready and make you feel better, especially when you hadn’t had any matches.”Murray confirmed British media reports that he and his wife Kim are expecting their second child, but said it would not distract him in his title defence.”We’re both obviously very happy and looking forward to it,” he said.advertisement”I’ve had family the whole time I’ve been playing tennis, so yeah, I’ll be fine dealing with that. It’s certainly not a distraction in the slightest.”Murray, who has won Wimbledon twice in the past four years and reached at least the quarter-finals every year since 2008, is attempting to successfully defend a grand slam title for the first time.”Hopefully I’m able to deal with things better this time round,” said Murray, who won his first grand slam title at the U.S. Open in 2012.”Once you get out there, I don’t feel like I’m coming in trying to defend something. I’m going out there trying to win Wimbledon again. I want to try to win the competition.”This year the odds appear more stacked against him after a year disrupted by a series of minor problems including chest infections, elbow problems, flu and shingles.However, the 30-year-old Briton said he was hopeful of being a force to reckon with at his home grand slam for years to come.”You want to make the most of every tournament you play. I think you realise that a little bit more as you start to get older. I hope I’m still playing here for five, six, seven more years, if possible.”last_img read more

Steve Nash Looks to Keep Family Away in Custody

Posted on by

Lakers point guard Steve Nash is involved in a custody battle of an odd variety, as he fights to keep his ex-wife and three children from following him to Los Angeles. Nash separated from Alejandra Amarilla last year shortly after the birth of his son Matteo in 2010. Amarilla lived in Phoenix during the majority of Nash’s stint with the Suns following their 2005 marriage, but now she wants to bring Matteo and the twin daughters Nash fathered closer to their father’s new home.Despite Nash’s alleged legal action against the move, TMZ reports that Amarilla has retained divorce lawyer Lance Spiegel to combat the case in both Arizona and California. Nash has not given any public reason as to why he want to prevent his children from being nearby, but TMZ speculates that the two-time MVP could be required to pay more child support should the family move to Los Angeles.Nash, 38, has missed 15 of the Lakers’ 17 games this season after fracturing his left fibula early on in the team’s second game. The absence of the normally healthy veteran is a factor in the teams underwhelming 8-9 start. When he joined the team as a part of a sign and trade deal over the summer, Nash stated that he stayed on the west coast in order to be closer to his children. read more
