With a passion for underground as much as international Hip-Co music, the industry is getting serious as more and more people are engaging in concert going and Liberian music. HottFm 107.9, alias One Media House, has done just about that by strategizing a way to blend every part of entertainment into one. One Media House, consisting of event planning, management, recording studio, advertising, humanitarianism, community development, artist promotion and a list of other things, HottFm is 100 percent engaged in Liberian entertainment and opening lanes for artists who have the ‘right stuff.’With the coming of the New Year, and the anticipated 2017 elections, HottFm has put its hands on a list of eye popping, heart racing events up to January 1, 2017 to get everyone’s mind ready for what’s ahead. For now, the country is hyped.First up is the LIB Top 75 Playlist, a creative playlist hosting more than 70 songs from Liberian artists living in all parts of the world. What makes the playlist exciting is the fact that songs featured on it are always a blend of super-talented and peaking artists. For example, Starmelo-D (the D is silent), an afro-pop artist with the smashing hit ‘Rude rude tings,’ has been in the industry since 2014, but as an underground artist, this young lad has been making music for years. A sound engineer first and foremost, Starmelo-D decided that it was time to sing over the sound of music that he cooks so well in the kitchen.“When I first started in the music industry, I was just a sound engineer. In 2014, I did a sample track about Liberia and the amount of positive feedback I received gave me the faith. Since then, I began enjoying the music more, every passing day it becomes a part of me,” he said.Now considered to have one of the best hit singles out, Starmelo-D’s ‘Rude rude tings’ has been on the Lib Top 75 Playlist for the past four months leaving him spellbound by the amount of followers he now has.Meanwhile, HottFm is also hosting a massive International concert in collaboration with the brains behind the “ADAY” initiative, Prince Jimmy Dee, who will be bringing down ‘Danze’ hitmaker Young Muse and his management team, Skylet White, the boss-lady’s voice behind‘Balance,’ on December 17 at Bernards Beach.The two artists are expected in Liberia today, December 15, 2016. Excited and prepared to see home, their fans, friends and family, the two have a professional show planned for LIB. What many don’t know is that Young Muse is one of Liberia’s most sought after artist.Nicki Minaj’s former manager and Waka Flaka Flame’s mother, Ms. Deborah Atney, has always said that she has a special interest in Young Muse’s music. Young Muse has had the opportunity of being mentored by some of the best in the music business; and with that said, he has something ‘real’ to show Liberia.There will be security and a protocol during the Jingle Bells Beach Jam that will be people friendly and safe for all. The artists, according to information coming from HottFm, will have ample time to perform.Again as we head closer to season time, it’s time to pop those bottles, have fun and enjoy the show.

The case relating to alleged rape by an Uber cab driver on Monday saw another adjournment, sought by the counsel for the accused driver, in a Delhi court on the ground that the advocate was on bed rest after falling from stairs.Shiv Kumar Yadav’s advocate moved a plea before Additional Sessions Judge Kaveri Baweja seeking adjournment of the case for a few days submitting that he has fallen from stairs at his house yesterday and was having back pain and the doctor has advised him bed rest. Also Read – Company director arrested for swindling Rs 345 croreThe court, after taking on record the plea of advocate D K Mishra, moved through his fellow lawyer, adjourned the case and fixed the matter for March 4 for hearing the defence’s final arguments.The lawyer, however, sought the court to fix the matter for March 7 but the judge refused to adjourn the case for six days as the medical record of the counsel showed he was required to take three days bed rest.The court had earlier also adjourned the case as sought by the defence counsel on the ground that he was busy in the Delhi High Court with an application in the same matter. The court is hearing final arguments of Yadav’s counsel who had earlier claimed that the Delhi Police were “hand-in-glove” with the prosecution to ensure the driver’s conviction and that there were several loopholes in the probe.According to the prosecution, the incident took place on the night of December 5 last year when the victim, a finance executive working in Gurgaon, was heading back home.
Thursday, January 4, 2018 Tags: Montreal, Trend Watch << Previous PostNext Post >> MONTREAL — More than 50 ship arrivals brought more than 114,000 passengers to Montreal last year, up 33% over 2016 and up 140% compared with 2011.The growth resulted from more cruises stopping to mark Canada’s 150th birthday and the 375th birthday celebrations of Montreal’s founding and the cruise industry’s interest in adding new destinations.The preliminary results were released Wednesday at an event awarding the gold-headed cane to the captain of the container ship Ottawa Express.For 179 years, the cane has been given annually to the first ocean-going vessel to reach the Port of Montreal without a stopover.

<< Previous PostNext Post >> By: The Associated Press Friday, June 28, 2019 Boeing says it expects to finish work on updated flight-control software for the 737 Max in September, a sign that the troubled jet likely won’t be flying until late this year.The latest delay in fixing the Max came a day after the disclosure that government test pilots found a new technology flaw in the plane during a test on a flight simulator.The plane has been grounded since mid-March after two crashes that killed 346 people. Preliminary accident reports pointed to software that erroneously pointed the planes’ noses down and overpowered pilots’ efforts to regain control.A Boeing official said Thursday that the company expects to submit the software update to the Federal Aviation Administration for approval “in the September timeframe.” The official spoke on condition of anonymity because Boeing has not publicly discussed timing of the update.Once Boeing submits its changes, the FAA is expected to take several weeks to analyze them, and airlines would need additional time to take their grounded Max jets out of storage and prepare them to fly again.Airlines were already lowering expectations for a quick return of the plane, which has been grounded since mid-March.Southwest Airlines, the biggest operator of Max jets, announced Thursday that it has taken the plane out of its schedule for another month, through Oct. 1. Earlier this week, United Airlines pulled the plane from its schedule through early September.More news: Kory Sterling is TL Network Canada’s new Sales Manager CanadaWhile Boeing engineers continue working on the plane’s software, company lawyers pushed Thursday to settle lawsuits brought by the families of dozens of passengers killed in the October crash of a Lion Air Max off the coast of Indonesia and the March crash of an Ethiopian Airlines Max near Addis Ababa.Boeing and the families of Lion Air Flight 610 victims agreed to mediation that could lead to early settlements. However, the families of some Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 passengers are resisting mediation.“There are many families here who will not want to participate in mediation until they know what Boeing knew, when they knew it, what they did about it, and what they’re going to do about it to prevent this kind of disaster from occurring again,” said Robert Clifford, a Chicago lawyer who filed lawsuits on behalf of nearly two dozen victims of the Ethiopian crash.Meanwhile, at a meeting Thursday in Montreal of regulators and airline representatives, the head of the International Air Transport Association, Alexandre de Juniac, made an appeal for co-ordination between aircraft operators and regulators.De Juniac and his airline group are trying to repair the fragmented regulatory approach to the Max. In March, other countries grounded the plane despite the FAA’s initial view that it was safe even after a second crash.More news: AMResorts has a new Sr. Dir. of Cdn. Sales & Consortia Rel’nsRegulators in Europe, China and Canada have indicated they want to conduct their own reviews of the FAA’s 2017 certification of the plane, which could further complicate and delay the Max’s return to flying.Requirements for additional pilot training could also affect the timing of the plane’s return.Boeing wants computer-based instruction, and FAA technical experts agree that would be sufficient. Others believe pilots need to practice with the new Boeing software in flight simulators.Earlier this month, Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, who landed a crippled airliner safely on the Hudson River in 2009, told a House subcommittee that pilots should get simulator training.That, however, would pose a problem for Boeing and the airlines _ it could take weeks or months to find simulator time for every pilot who flies the Max. Southwest and American Airlines each have thousands of Boeing 737 pilots, but neither airline has a Max simulator. Boeing has one in Miami and a similar machine in Seattle.FAA’s acting administrator, Daniel Elwell, says the agency has not made a final decision about training.Shares of Boeing fell $10.92, or 2.9%, to close Thursday at $364.02.
