    Ed King, a former lead guitarist for the Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd who co-wrote one of the group's best-known hits, Sweet Home Alabama, has died at age 68. 인터넷카지노 King joined Lynyrd Skynyrd in 1972, not long after the band formed, and with two other lead guitarists, Gary Rossington and Allen Collins, helped create the group's powerful triple-guitar sound prominent on such rock classics as Free Bird.  Rossington, a founding member of the band, said he was "shocked and saddened" by King's death. A notice on King's Facebook page said he died at his home in Nashville, Tennessee, on Wednesday (Aug 22). No cause of death was revealed. 카지노사이트 King left the group in 1975, two years before a plane crash killed two of the band's members and a backup vocalist.

During his original stint, King co-wrote several songs, including the 1974 hit Sweet Home Alabama, a retort to Neil Young's Southern Man. The California native previously played with psychedelic rock band Strawberry Alarm Clock.

    Thousands of revellers hurled around 145 tonnes of tomatoes at each other on Wednesday (August 29) during the annual "Tomatina" festival in the Spanish town of Bunol, 38 kilometers west of Valencia. A fire cracker signal marked the start of La Tomatina at 11am (0900 GMT) and during the next hour, six trucks loaded with tomatoes drove through Bunol's main street providing red ammunition for the revelers to enjoy themselves. 온라인바카라 The food fight originates from a spontaneous bust-up amongst villagers in 1945. It was banned for a time during the 1950s at the height of General Francisco Franco's dictatorship, but has gained popularity since it was reinstated, drawing a huge international crowd. At its peak, the Tomatina attracted approximately 45,000 people, but it has now become a ticketed event with only 22,000 places, 5,000 of which go to local residents.

    With the recent announcement of the NFL deal with Yahoo to stream a game online, it should be time to take a look at the things to watch for during the livestream. This is a massive opportunity for both the NFL and Yahoo, as both groups have large audiences and large reaches. 바카라사이트 International Viewing: With the game being broadcast via Yahoo for most markets, this is a test to see the global reach that the NFL has. For many years, an expansion team has been talked about in overseas locations for the NFL, but this is a chance to see what that interest may be like. For Yahoo, this is a chance to further grow their international platform as a whole. Yahoo will be able to broadcast this game in massive markets, such as the UK, China and other large countries that may not have regular viewing access to NFL games. Prediction: Welcome to the USA, where we are extremely curious about new things. Ratings may be high at the beginning, because we want to see things we are not used to. Ratings in the on home turf should expect to go down throughout the game. However, expect international ratings to be at a very high number, with football becoming a growing sports in expanding markets. 인터넷카지노 Yahoo Integration: Yahoo has many different properties that it can use to further enhance the experience for fans. For example, Yahoo Screen is the main video part of the website that will be used by many fans to see the actual game. Yahoo-owned Tumblr is a growing social product, with tens of millions of posts being created by people all around the world everyday. Can Yahoo use Tumblr in order to make the game more social? Yahoo also has created a very successful Fantasy Sports application used by millions. There is a massive amount of potential to use it's fantasy sports platform directly with the game. Other properties and platforms that are interesting in partnership with the game are Yahoo Search, Flickr and it's main news website. Prediction: This one should be fun. Yahoo is going to be creating a massive platform FOR ONE GAME OF THE BILLS VS. JAGS. Expect GIFs every two seconds on Tumblr, followed by fantasy exclusives provided by the top Yahoo NFL writers. Quality: Let's be honest. The first livestream NFL game via Yahoo could go up in flames. It could be amazing, but how do we know the quality is going to be perfect, something we are pretty used to with CBS, NBC and Fox Sports. Just a thought... 인터넷바카라 Prediction: It is not going to be perfect, but I do not think it is going to be awful. Yahoo Screen is a platform with high potential, and with CBS producing the game, this has the potential to be good. But not perfect...let's remember that. Game Experience: For your average TV user, the game may be DVR'd (or something similar) to either skip commercials or watch the entirety of the game of if the viewer is a couple minutes late. What does Yahoo provide us with this time around? Will we have the chance to record the game, and start it from the beginning a few minutes late? In addition, will Yahoo allow us to watch the game after it is done, allowing people to maybe see a game later in the day? Will we have a chance to rewind the game if somebody makes an amazing catch (or Rex Ryan does something weird, since that is very high in probability). Prediction: The game will be allowed to be rewinded (a certain amount of time), but not recorded. Yahoo will allow Yahoo-registered users to watch the game after it ends via Yahoo Screen. The game will be lowell watched after it ends, because people realize they have work, school...or the rest of their days.

     Hollywood actor Jeff Goldblum has faced dinosaurs and aliens in his movie franchises, but on Wednesday (Sept 5) he showed off a very different skill - playing jazz music. The Jurassic Park and Independence Day actor surprised commuters at London's St Pancras International train station by performing music from his forthcoming jazz album on a public piano. 온라인바카라 Crowds gathered around the 65-year-old, who recorded The Capitol Studios Sessions with his band The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, and they applauded his solo performance. The album is set to be released in November.

     A stirring story of revenge and friendship involving an Irish convict woman and an Aboriginal tracker in colonial Tasmania was hailed the favourite on Thursday (Sept 6) to win the Golden Lion at the Venice film festival. 바카라사이트 The Nightingale by Australian Jennifer Kent - the only film directed by a woman out of a total 21 vying for the top prize - had critics reaching for comparisons with Jane Campion's 1993 masterpiece The Piano. But the first screening of Kent's haunting evocation of the brutality of the former penal colony, whose original inhabitants were all but wiped out in a genocide, was marred by racist and sexist abuse hurled at its makers. After loud cheers had greeted the demise of a British officer near the end of the film who had murdered the heroine's husband and baby, a handful of Italians in the audience clapped the death of the Aboriginal man who had helped her. Then, as Kent's name came up in the credits, one shouted: "Shame on you, whore! Your film sucks." A young Italian director later admitted he was the culprit and apologised for the "deplorable insult", saying it was "not meant to be misogynist". The dearth of women in the official line-up has seen Venice condemned for its "toxic masculinity" and the organisers forced into an embarrassing U-turn on gender equality. 카지노사이트 But the Brisbane-born actor-turned-director refused to be provoked, telling reporters her film proved the "absolute importance of reacting with compassion and love to ignorance. "We see other options played out and they gave no succour or relief," said Kent, who turned down the Hollywood blockbuster Wonder Woman to make her own historical epic. "Love, compassion and kindness are our lifeline and if we don't utilise them we will all go down the plughole," she added. The film, which is shot in English, Irish Gaelic and the Tasmanian Aboriginal Palawa Kani language, portrays the extreme violence and racism of the island in the 1820s when it was known as Van Diemen's Land. Variety called it "a magnificent mass of movie... an elemental revenge tale (of) near-mythic grandeur". But critic Jessica Kiang of The Playlist website said that with judicious cuts to "pare it back to its thrilling and beautiful essentials, The Nightingale will really sing." Kent said she it was "incredibly important" that audiences be shocked by the brutality she depicts. 카지노사이트주소 "I hope horror and beauty exist side-by-side. But we are so numbed and anaesthetised to cinema violence - we can watch a movie where 50 people die and feel nothing. "This is objectionable and disagreeable to me. I wanted to show the human cost," she told AFP. Rising Irish-Italian star Aisling Franciosi, of The Fall fame, said she never realised quite how violent the penal colony was, "particularly towards women, who were outnumbered eight to one. "They were sent there for very petty crimes to populate the island. It made me furious to see how cruel, brutal and systematic it was." Kent said the story of genocide and enslavement "needs to be told", hanging her plot on the touching and unlikely friendship between an enslaved convict played by Franciosi and a tracker by Aboriginal actor Baykali Ganambarr. "When I first went to Tasmania I was struck by the residual sadness in the land," she told AFP. "I visited the penal colonies and felt the ghosts of many heartbroken souls that somehow stayed in the place and I always wanted to tell the story." Ganambarr said there was no "sugar coating... This is what happened to my people and I am really proud to represent them." Kent, who wrote the script, said being the sole woman director in competition in Venice "brings me no joy. I wish I had my sister filmmakers here. Cinema's job is to reflect the world and if we only reflect 50 per cent, it's not doing that." The last time a woman took Venice's top prize was 43 years ago when German director Margarethe von Trotta won with Marianne And Juliane.

    Burt Reynolds, whose good looks and charm made him one of Hollywood’s most popular actors as he starred in films such as Deliverance, The Longest Yard and Smokey And The Bandit in the 1970s and 1980s, has died at age 82, a spokesman for his Los Angeles agent said on Thursday (Sept 6). 바카라사이트 Reynolds died on Thursday morning at the Jupiter Medical Centre in Florida, The Hollywood Reporter said, citing Reynolds’manager, Erik Kritzer. At the peak of his career, Reynolds was one of the most bankable actors in the film industry, reeling off a series of box office smashes until a career downturn in the mid-1980s. He rebounded in 1997 with a nomination for a best supporting actor Academy Award for Boogie Nights and won an Emmy Award for his role in the 1990-1994 TV series Evening Shade. With his trademark moustache, rugged looks and macho aura, he was a leading male sex symbol of the 1970s. He appeared naked - reclining on a bearskin rug with his arm strategically positioned for the sake of modesty - in a centrefold in the women's magazine Cosmopolitan in 1972. 온라인카지노 Reynolds' personal life sometimes overshadowed his movies, with marriages that ended in divorce to actresses Loni Anderson and Judy Carne and romances with others, including Sally Field and Dinah Shore. Reynolds also generated attention for financial woes and his struggles with prescription pain medication. Reynolds cited director John Boorman's Oscar-nominated 1972 Deliverance as his best film and said he regretted that the hoopla from his Cosmopolitan appearance detracted from the movie that made him a star. He played tough-guy Lewis Medlock - opposite Jon Voight, Ned Beatty and Ronny Cox - in the chilling tale of a canoe trip gone bad in rural Georgia. He starred in dozens of films, also including White Lightning (1973), WW And The Dixie Dancekings (1975),Hustle (1975), Nickelodeon (1976) and Semi-Tough (1977). He was the top money-making star at the box office in an annual poll of movie exhibitors 1978 through 1982. Many of his films were set in the South. He often played a lovable rascal who outwits local authorities as in director Hal Needham's 1977 crowd-pleasing action comedy Smokey And The Bandit, co-starring his girlfriend Field and Jackie Gleason, and its two sequels.

Another of his better roles was that of former a pro quarterback who lands in prison and assembles a team of convicts to play the warden's squad of brutal prison guards in 1974's rollicking The Longest Yard, directed by Robert Aldrich. He appeared in a supporting role 2005's remake with Adam Sandler. Reynolds also directed several movies in which he starred, including Gator (1976), The End (1978), Sharky's Machine(1981) and Stick (1985). While some of his performances were critically praised, others were ridiculed, particularly in the bloated action comedy Cannonball Run II, a sequel to his financial success Rhe Cannonball Run (1981). He also starred in the notorious 1975 musical flop At Long Last Love, a film so atrocious that director Peter Bogdanovich publicly apologised for making it. Reynolds turned down notable roles, including Han Solo in Star Wars, which went to Harrison Ford; the title role in a James Bond film; and the astronaut in Terms Of Endearment that Jack Nicholson turned into an Oscar-winning performance.

He rebounded in 1997 with a nomination for a best supporting actor Academy Award for Boogie Nights and won an Emmy Award for his role in the 1990-1994 TV series Evening Shade. With his trademark moustache, rugged looks and macho aura, he was a leading male sex symbol of the 1970s. He appeared naked - reclining on a bearskin rug with his arm strategically positioned for the sake of modesty - in a centrefold in the women's magazine Cosmopolitan in 1972. 온라인카지노 Reynolds' personal life sometimes overshadowed his movies, with marriages that ended in divorce to actresses Loni Anderson and Judy Carne and romances with others, including Sally Field and Dinah Shore. Reynolds also generated attention for financial woes and his struggles with prescription pain medication. Reynolds cited director John Boorman's Oscar-nominated 1972 Deliverance as his best film and said he regretted that the hoopla from his Cosmopolitan appearance detracted from the movie that made him a star. He played tough-guy Lewis Medlock - opposite Jon Voight, Ned Beatty and Ronny Cox - in the chilling tale of a canoe trip gone bad in rural Georgia. He starred in dozens of films, also including White Lightning (1973), WW And The Dixie Dancekings (1975),Hustle (1975), Nickelodeon (1976) and Semi-Tough (1977). He was the top money-making star at the box office in an annual poll of movie exhibitors 1978 through 1982. Many of his films were set in the South. He often played a lovable rascal who outwits local authorities as in director Hal Needham's 1977 crowd-pleasing action comedy Smokey And The Bandit, co-starring his girlfriend Field and Jackie Gleason, and its two sequels.

Another of his better roles was that of former a pro quarterback who lands in prison and assembles a team of convicts to play the warden's squad of brutal prison guards in 1974's rollicking The Longest Yard, directed by Robert Aldrich. He appeared in a supporting role 2005's remake with Adam Sandler. Reynolds also directed several movies in which he starred, including Gator (1976), The End (1978), Sharky's Machine(1981) and Stick (1985). While some of his performances were critically praised, others were ridiculed, particularly in the bloated action comedy Cannonball Run II, a sequel to his financial success Rhe Cannonball Run (1981). He also starred in the notorious 1975 musical flop At Long Last Love, a film so atrocious that director Peter Bogdanovich publicly apologised for making it. Reynolds turned down notable roles, including Han Solo in Star Wars, which went to Harrison Ford; the title role in a James Bond film; and the astronaut in Terms Of Endearment that Jack Nicholson turned into an Oscar-winning performance.

    A 1943 propaganda film featuring a Japanese "Robin Hood" in Malaya inspired the new Teater Ekamatra production opening this week. 안전놀이터 Written by Alfian Sa'at and directed by Teater Ekamatra's artistic director Mohd Fared Jainal, Tiger Of Malaya features a cast from Singapore and Japan, and runs at the Drama Centre Black Box from Sept 12 till Sept 23. The term "Tiger Of Malaya" is often associated with Japanese general Tomoyuki Yamashita, who captured Malaya and Singapore during World War II. However, the old film and this week's play are based on the life story of Tani Yutaka, a Japanese bandit who lived in Malaya. He is portrayed as a heroic figure, leading his band against British imperial forces and "evil" Chinese capitalists. The play re-enacts scenes from the film - with "interruptions, interventions and subversions" according to Alfian. Malay actors play parts that were originally played by a Japanese cast. The cast includes Farez Najid, Siti Khalijah Zainal and Rei Poh from Singapore, and Rei Kitagawa and Yuya Tanaka from Japan. Dialogue is in Malay, English, Japanese and Mandarin - Japanese-speaking researcher Shawn Chua is the dramaturg. Actor Farez, 30, watched the Tiger Of Malaya film even before being cast for the production. "It was with a bunch of boys who were interested in war and it was hilarious," he says. 바카라사이트 For him and many of the other performers in their 30s, World War II is too far away to affect the present day. "We consume Japanese media a lot, the culture," he points out. "The war is generations away." Japanese actor Tanaka, 31, feels equally distant from the war but says: "I'm curious how people will respond to the play." Alfian, who has written several plays for Teater Ekamatra including political satire GRC (2015), is fascinated by the "mythmaking" aspect of Tiger Of Malaya, where a bandit "was pitched as a symbol of the Japanese providing anti-colonial and nationalist leadership in Asia". "I've been very interested in exploring historiography - or how history is written - through theatre, and I felt that the movie provided this very rich material," he says. For the director, Fared, the play brought up similar questions. "How can we relate back to an event that happened way before this current time? How true is history being recorded?" he asks. 인터넷카지노 Work began on Tiger Of Malaya well before it was announced that Singapore would commemorate its bicentennial in 2019 - 200 years after Stamford Raffles landed. Fared says: "We were not particularly aligning it to the whole bicentennial celebrations. But somehow with this work, it questions our very own existence in this part of the world through the lens of history."

    An article in an online magazine under famed American lifestyle guru and cookbook author Martha Stewart's brand prompted taunts from netizens when it mistook durian for jackfruit. 인터넷바카라 The article, titled Here's Exactly How To Use Jackfruit, published on Stewart's eponymous site under a section named Strive, which purports to be about "the art and science of taking care", mistakenly featured a picture of durians. A line about jackfruit which appeared right before the picture of the durians said:"This tropical fruit, often grown in India and southeast Asia, has a texture that can be an excellent substitute for meat." While unripe jackfruit has become popular in recent years as a meat substitute because its fruit can be easily shredded, similar to pulled pork, durian's texture is very different from meat and is not known to be used as a substitute. 카지노사이트 Netizens spotted the error and descended upon the 77-year-old, who now has a lifestyle empire under her name. Reactions ranged from ridiculing Stewart to asking for more diverse writers on her team, to avoid such mistakes. Freelance writer Erin Chew who uses the name ThisAsianWomanSays on Twitter tagged Stewart's official Twitter and questioned how she could make the mistake and why no one on Stewart's team bothered to do an image search of jackfruit. She added: "Can these celebrity #white folks get our SE Asian fruits correct?"

    United States rapper Nicki Minaj has refuted suggestions that she insulted fellow rapper Cardi B's daughter. Cardi B implied earlier, without naming anyone, that comments about her daughter had led her to get into a scuffle with Minaj last Friday night. 바카라사이트주소 The altercation, which took place at a New York Fashion Week party, was caught on tape. Magazine Vanity Fair reported on Monday (Sept 10) that Minaj had made her latest comments about the issue during an interview with Beats 1's Queen Radio on Apple Music. Minaj said that the pair's skirmish last week had been "something so mortifying and so humiliating to go through in front of a bunch (of) upper-echelon people who have their life together". "The way they passed by, looking at this disgusting commotion - I was mortified," she said. "I was in a Gaultier gown off the motherf****** runway, and I could not believe how humiliat(ing) it all felt, (how) we made ourselves look." The incident happened at a bash hosted by fashion magazine Harper's Bazaar. Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, lunged towards Minaj, 35, but was stopped and held back by security. 안전놀이터 The 25-year-old rapper was heard yelling loudly and asking Minaj to come to her and was seen throwing a shoe at Minaj. In an expletive-laden note on Instagram shortly after the incident, Cardi B wrote that the reason for her outburst was because of comments made about her ability to be a good mother to her daughter. She did not name who made those comments. Cardi B gave birth to her first child, a baby girl, in July. But Minaj said in her radio interview, referring to herself in third person: "I just want people to know that Onika Tanya Maraj (Minaj's real name) has never, will never...speak ill on anyone's child. I am not a clown. That's clown s***. "The world gave you a blessing, of a beautiful bundle of joy, and the only thing on your mind after you gave birth was to attack people." 바카라사이트 Minaj, who had not made any comments about the altercation immediately after it took place, said that she had not felt the need to defend herself that night. However, she suggested that Cardi B posted about the incident because she felt embarrassed. Minaj added that Cardi B "built her career off sympathy and payola". Payola refers to the frowned-upon practice in the music industry of paying a DJ to promote one's music. The pair have had a complicated relationship following the success of Cardi B's rap track Bodak Yellow, released in 2017. Comparisons were often made between the two female rappers and rumours were rife that Minaj took digs at Cardi B through song lyrics. Referring to Cardi B during her radio interview, Minaj said: "Do you know what it is to sit in your room for hours and days at a time writing raps? You came into my f****** culture! I never had a DJ to play my f****** songs. "This is about, get this woman some f****** help. This woman is at the best stage of her career and she's throwing bottles? Who the f*** is gonna give her an intervention?"

    LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Los Angeles prosecutors said on Tuesday (Sept 11) they would not charge Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter over a 2003 sexual assault accusation because it fell outside the California statute of limitations. 인터넷카지노 The Los Angeles District Attorney's office said it had reviewed the accusation by a woman who was 18 years old at the time, but said the statute of limitations had expired in 2013. "An analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the evidence is not warranted, and the matter is declined," prosecutors said in a charge evaluation worksheet released to the media. They gave no details of the case, but Carter last year denied an allegation that he raped a teen pop singer 15 years ago. An attorney for Carter, whose band is currently playing a long-term engagement in Las Vegas, said in a statement on Tuesday that the singer was "happy to put the matter behind him." 인터넷바카라 "Nick has denied these allegations ever since he first learned of them last year," attorney Michael Holtz said in the statement. The Backstreet Boys were one of the biggest boy bands of the late 1990s and early 2000s, with hits like Quit Playing Games With My Heart. Accusations of sexual misconduct, inspired by the #MeToo social media movement, have forced multiple celebrities, politicians and businessmen to step down or be fired in the past year.

    Since comments are disabled on the article: I'm really interested in people's opinion. What do you think about this? 안전놀이터 Why did my boyfriend like Emily Ratajkowski's butt on Instagram? Personally: I think an Insta "like" has such different value to different people that it's basically impossible to interpret what that means (for your relationship) without discussing that with the other person first. Or at least looking at what their regular behaviour is (do they follow 3 people and like almost nothing or follow 1000 people and like everything that passes under their thumb?) 인터넷바카라Then there's the whole aspect of guys looking at other girls than their girlfriend. It shouldn't matter, but it does. How do you deal with that?

    I like stories - short ones in particular. I write and publish 2-minute fictions on YouTube every day from pieces I post on Medium . 카지노사이트주소 When I heard about Amazon Video Direct earlier on today, I was pretty excited. It was written about as a YouTube competitor and, as much as I love YouTube, I was pretty keen to get in on AVD on the ground floor. Amazon just seemed like such a good place to publish short fiction videos; it's already the prime place for independent e-books, I thought it would be the perfect place for my video fictions. 바카라사이트주소 Now, I'm under no illusions - my stories are my pleasure, but they are never going to be a big earner for me. I write and record for the love of the story. Right now, I'm happy with that. But the thought of entering a less crowded marketplace was also appealing. I just want people to enjoy my work and AVD is so new, it is going to make discovery of my fictions a whole lot easier. Youtube's success comes partly from the fact that it is so damn easy to upload. I teach 11 year old kids who do it better than me, because it just works well. But Amazon Video Direct is not only ugly, but cumbersome and (worst of all) insists you include when you upload. WHAT??! Ain't nobody got time for that. 안전놀이터 And this is why Amazon Video Direct is going to be a completely different kettle of fish to YouTube. YouTube is for everyone; AVD is for those who are serious about their work. Sure, it might end up meaning a smaller, but better quality, selection of videos - but it is never going to have the reach and cultural penetration of YouTube.
