Hearing the opening notes of the Scottish rock band’s 2002 single “Cry,” he recognized a hook that was unmistakably similar — identical, even — to the guts of his band’s “Indestructible,” recorded five years earlier. “But that said, there are always many ways to work around (the similarities).” LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement “They basically took ‘Indestructible’ note for note,” Good recalled in a recent interview. “They completely admitted they were in the wrong.” Twitter Raine Maida of Our Lady Peace was among those who were stunned by the parallels. Even knowing that, Good decided against suing the band, whose mega-hit “Don’t You (Forget About Me)” made them international stars. He chalked it up to a mistake by the album’s producer rather than malicious intent and doesn’t get paid royalties off the track. In January, Lana Del Rey defended her moody ballad “Get Free” on Twitter saying Radiohead wanted royalties for its similarity to their hit “Creep.” She felt her song was an original work that wasn’t inspired by the rock smash hit, which itself was subject to a copyright settlement over sounding like the Hollies’ 1970s track “The Air That I Breathe.”Del Rey’s dispute sparked widespread debate on social media as music fans rushed to YouTube and streaming services to deliver their own verdicts. Plagiarism allegations are frequently a hot topic in the music industry, but rarely does the conversation leak outside recording studios quite as it has in recent memory.

Visakhapatnam: Defending champions Chennai Super Kings produced a clinical performance to beat Delhi Capitals by six wickets and enter their eighth final of the Indian Premier League, here on Friday. CSK dished out a disciplined bowling and fielding effort to first restrict DC to 147 for nine and then chased down the target with ease, reaching 151 or four in 19 overs. Dwayne Bravo (2/19), Ravindra Jadeja (2/23), Deepak Chahar (2/28) and Harbhajan Singh (2/31) shared eight wickets between them to keep DC in check after opting to bowl.

The two teams have met each other thrice in summit clashes of the tournament earlier with MI finishing on the winning side twice while the Chennai outfit came out triumphant once. While CSK won the final battle in 2010, MI finished on the victorious side in 2013 and 2015. Chasing the modest total, Faf du Plessis (50 off 39 balls; 7x4s, 1×60 and Shane Watson (50 off 32; 3x4s, 4x6s) got CSK off to a flier, stitching 81 runs in 10.2 overs. Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai MastersThe duo started cautiously before opening up to not allow any DC bowler to settle down. Du Plessis was the aggressor among the duo, scoring 50 off 39 balls with the help of seven boundaries and one six while Watson played the second fiddle initially. But just after notching up his 12th IPL fifty, Du Plessis departed while going for a big shot over deep square-leg off Trent Boult (1/20), only to be holed out by Keemo Paul. After Du Plessis’ dismissal, Watson took the centrestage and struck Paul for one four and three sixes to pile up 25 runs off the 12th over and also registered his half-century off 31 balls in the process. Watson looked in a hurry to finish off the chase and that eventually led to his downfall, caught by Boult off Amit Mishra (1/21) in the second ball of the next over. Suresh Raina (11) and skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (9) got out cheaply but Ambati Rayudu (2 not out) remained at the crease to ensure a comfortable win for the three-time champions. Earlier sent into bat, DC made a shaky start with Prithvi Shaw (5) and Shikhar Dhawan (18 off 14) adding 21 runs in 2.3 overs before the former was caught plumb in front of the wicket by Chahar. Shaw’s dismissal opened the floodgates as DC lost three wickets in quick time to slump to 75 for four in 11.3 overs. Dhawan was the next to depart, caught by Dhoni off Harbhajan and then Colin Munro (27) was holed at deep square-leg by Bravo off Jadeja as the South African went for a slog sweep. Skipper Shreyas Iyer (13 of 18) tried to anchor the innings but he too fell while going for a big shot, caught by Raina off Imran Tahir (1/28) in the 12th over. Brief Scores: DC: 147/9 in 20 overs (Pant 38; Bravo 2/19, Jadeja 2/23, Chahar 2/28, Harbhajan 2/31) vs CSK: 151/4 in 19 overs (Faf 50, Watson 50; Boult 1/20).
Rabat – The “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally held this weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia turned violent after a man rammed his car into a group of counter-demonstrators.A group of protestors representing several white extremist groups gathered in Charlottesville Friday and Saturday, protesting against the removal of the statue of Confederate icon General Robert E. Lee, while counter-demonstrators grouped together to confront them.The confrontation between the two groups lead to violent clashes between the two groups. On Saturday afternoon, a man driving a speeding car rammed into a crowd of counter-demonstrators, leading to the death of 32-year-old Heather Heyer and the injury of 35 people, said Al Jazeera.The car driver, 20-year-old James Alex Fields Jr., was shortly arrested and charged with second degree murderer, one count of hit and run, and three counts of malicious wounding, reported BBC, who said that Fields held “Nazi sympathies.”After the incident, local police intervened and broke up the protests, while the Charlottesville governor declared a “state of emergency.”On August 12, US president Donald Trump issued a statement about the protests on Twitter, saying that “we all must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!”Trump has since come under fire for not specifically denouncing the white supremacist and neo-Nazi groups.US Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the deadly violence was “the definition of domestic terrorism,” and that the Justice Department was opening an investigation into the event.He also said that FBI agents from the terrorism and civil rights divisions have also launched investigations.
PHILADELPHIA — Several tenants of the nation’s oldest diamond district have received eviction notices as a luxury home developer plans to build a high-rise condo tower on the block.Some tenants of Philadelphia’s Jewelers Row say they were told in the notices that arrived this week that they must vacate by May 31.Despite its historic status, Jewelers Row isn’t listed in the Philadelphia Register of Historic Places. That enabled developer Toll Brothers to get construction permits and demolition approval in 2016.After resistance from jewelers and preservationists, the builder modified the design several times.The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Toll completed its final required review by the city’s design board in April 2018. Two court challenges over the project have failed.Historical Commission Spokesman Paul Chrystie tells the Inquirer a nomination for it to become a historic district won’t be heard until August.___Information from: The Philadelphia Inquirer, http://www.inquirer.comThe Associated Press
After seeing considerable success on computers and then moving over to a dedicated box, HTPC client Boxee has finally made its way to the iPad. The app is primarily designed to be a place to watch streaming web video on your tablet, but its functionality doesn’t end there. When paired with Boxee’s Media Manager it can stream videos from computers on your network as well. So Boxee is on a new device, but the goal is the same: give users a single place to collect their video content, be it Netflix, local video, or web clips suggested by friends.By default the app doesn’t do much–it can give you access to featured videos, your friends’ shared videos, and videos you’ve saved for later. The selection is pretty slim if you don’t have a lot of friends on connected accounts (or at all) or you haven’t been saving a lot of videos with Boxee’s bookmarklet. But you can change that! By using Boxee’s website you can expand the amount of content Boxee displays by connecting different web services. Enabling Netflix access does not seem to allow the app to play Netflix videos in the app, but by connecting Facebook you’ll be able to view the videos your friends have shared there (so long as they’re not from Hulu). Once you watch videos you can share them using email, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.A lot of the the Boxee app’s best stuff relies on a piece of software for your computer: Boxee’s Media Manager (above). By connecting with this the app can send videos from the iPad to your computer (without transcoding them). It’s simple enough–if the iPad and computer are on the same network the Boxee app will see your Boxee account on the computer and share media from one to the other. Using the app you can also, apparently, send video from the iPad to a Boxee box, but I wasn’t able to test that out.Quick take: I’ve tested the app out a bit and everything worked well. My video selection wasn’t great, but it’s all about saving videos to watch later and adding friends. The Media Manager is a bit clunky compared to the standard Boxee client but it works well, easily connecting my laptop and iPad 2. The navigation to my computer’s shared media on the app happens at the folder level so it’s slow to navigate and organized only as well as my files are, but once I found what I wanted the videos all played back quite well. The media sharing has the feeling of a parlor trick, but if you have enough video on your computer then it could, possibly, be useful. The rest of the app works well, with easy swipe-based navigation and simple controls. The web video streamed well, with pretty reasonable quality, and was easy to get into full-screen mode.Overall, the iPad app in its current form augments the Boxee experience on the computer, it doesn’t replace it.Boxee on iTunes
Drinking up to eight glasses of water a day to stay healthy, and in some cases lose weight, may be nothing but a myth, says Melbourne academic Spero Tsindos. The La Trobe University lecturer told Neos Kosmos there is no proof that drinking two litres of water a day – as suggested – has health benefits, and says that the belief could stem from guidelines published over 60 years ago. He says that this common misconception has entered our psyche and humans now believe that by drinking two litres of water, we are flushing out toxins from our body, cleansing our insides and also aiding with weight loss. “The body will take the water it needs no matter what form it’s in; once it’s taken what it needs, it will flush the rest out,” Mr Tsindos told Neos Kosmos. Mr Tsindos said that even though our bodies do need hydrating, other fluids and foods could have more health benefits than drinking water. “Lettuce is a really good example of this,” Mr Tsindos explains. “97 per cent of lettuce is water so if you are eating 100 grams of lettuce you are consuming 97 millilitres of water in that process and you are consuming a whole of biochemical’s that will help it facilitate [the fluid] absorbing into the body. “So drinking plain water as a continual beverage has every chance of being counterproductive as opposed to having health benefits,” he says, concluding, “you are better off eating your water in food than drinking it in a bottle”. In an article published in The Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health, the La Trobe University lecturer wrote that drinking a large intake of water doesn’t have weight loss benefits alone, but in conjunction with a calorie controlled diet, it would work, but that would be the same as a calorie controlled diet matched with exercise. In relation to how much water we should be drinking a day, he believes that there is no hard and fast answer as it all depends on each individual and their body in relation to: build; metabolism; fitness levels; how you eat; and so forth and says the best way to know, is to listen to your body. “Whenever you feel thirsty, drink water, or drink fluid”.

The former Rangers captain was stripped of his captaincy after a clash with ex-manager Graeme Murty last seasonFormer Rangers captain Lee Wallace has just one appearance for his club this season under coach Steven Gerrard.But the Gers’ manager, says there has not been a bad treatment of the ex-captain.“The treatment we’ve given to our captain Lee Wallace who has stood by this club for the last three years […] I think it’s disgusting and I’m really disappointed that it’s not been resolved and that man’s not back in the team,” Gerrard told Sky Sports.Owen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“As the manager of this club, and I have been since June, I came into [a situation with] Lee Wallace. He was out injured and had missed 12 months of football.”“I have to pay my respects to Lee in terms of his professionalism while he’s been injured and the hard work he’s put in trying to get match fit,” he added“At the moment, to be really candid, he’s still part of the plans while he’s here but I have better options in that position.”“My relationship with Lee is fine. He trains with us every day and he is working very hard to regain his place in the team. That’s where that situation is,” he concluded.

The repackaging jumlas [Representational Image] TwitterAfter the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) released its 2019 manifesto for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, people are saddened to know that there are no mentions of cow protection in its latest edition. Since 1984, the BJP has been carrying the cow protection and its welfare as one of their top priorities. The manifesto which went deep with rest core duties including the Ayodhya land dispute and nationalist sentiments forgot to favour cows this time.This time the party has limited itself to mention the ‘gaumatha’ only once that too for ‘gaushalas’ (cow shelters). The cow shelters in the country will be linked to the promotion of organic farming and animal husbandry. Isn’t it just sad that the term cow has not been mentioned in the manifesto?For years the saffron party had a separate place for the cows in its heart and soul which has just vanished into thin air. The party which has blamed every other political party for the violence against the cattle and ban on cow slaughter has now shunned out on ‘gaumatha’.BJP and Gaumatha policiesThe BJP had given its detailed plans over different schemes relating to the welfare of cows since 1984. Here are some:-1984 – The party proposed a ban on cow slaughter.1989 – Working towards the welfare of cows and a total ban on cow slaughter.1991 – Again a total ban on cow slaughter and that no one has a fundamental right of trade or business to slaughter cows.1996 – Policies for improved cattle breeding, amendment of Article 48 of Indian constitution (preserving and improving the breeds, and prohibiting the slaughter, of cows and calves and other milch and draught cattle)2004 – BJP recommends the implementation of the national cattle development board2009 – BJP refers to Supreme Court judgement and said that keeping with the Directive Principles of State Policy, the necessary legal framework will be created to protect and promote cow and its progeny.2014 – Department of Animal Husbandry will be suitably strengthened and empowered for the protection and promotion of cow and its progeny due to its contribution towards agriculture.People’s reaction While the people who were searching for new policies related to cows in the latest BJP manifesto were left in serious disappointment, some of the netizens have brought up the question in social media.Here are a few reactions:- Gaumatha does not forgive… That utter disappointment No idea mate Yes, unfortunate indeed!
In this file photo taken on 18 October 2018 Indian Hindu devotees are pictured at the Lord Ayyappa temple at Sabarimala in the southern state of Kerala. Photo: AFPTwo women on Wednesday entered one of Hinduism’s holiest shrines in south India becoming the first to go into Sabarimala temple since the Supreme Court ordered the end of a longstanding ban on women aged between 10 and 50, a state minister said.The temple in Kerala state has been at the centre of a prolonged showdown between Hindu devotees supporting the ban and women activists who have been forced back several times from Sabarimala.The women entered the hilltop temple just before dawn with police security.”We did not enter the shrine by climbing the 18 holy steps but went through the staff gate,” one of the women told local media.Kerala state Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said: “It is a fact that the women entered the shrine. Police are bound to offer protection to anyone wanting to worship at the shrine.”The women’s entry into the temple is certain to provoke a new gender storm.A spokesman for the temple’s management, Sasikumar Varma, said that if priests confirmed women had entered Sabarimala “necessary purification rituals will be done.”Media reports said the head priest had ordered the temple closed for “purification”.The Supreme Court ruled on September 28 that the decades-old ban on women of menstruating age at Sabarimala, which is at the top of a hill a four-hour trek from the nearest village, was illegal.Repeated efforts by women to enter the temple were fought back by Hindu devotees.In October, devotees clashed with police leading to the arrest of more than 2,000 people.On Tuesday, there was more trouble when tens of thousands of women formed a human chain across Kerala state to back the demand for women’s access to the temple.The Supreme Court is to start hearing a legal challenge to its ruling on January 22.Many Hindu groups as well as Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party fiercely oppose the court ruling. They argue that the court has ignored their belief that the deity Ayyappa was celibate.
Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. 3 min read The applications for 3-D printing are being driven in a new direction.If you were planning a cross-country road trip, how much would you budget for gas? For Cody and Tyler Kor and their dog, Cupid, they’ll be figuring just 10 gallons each way for the 2,900-mile journey from New York to San Francisco and back. And Hint: it has a little something to do with 3-D printing.The brothers will be following in the footsteps of car enthusiast Horatio Nelson Jackson and mechanic Sewall K. Crocker, who made the same journey with their dog Bud in 1903. It took Jackson and Crocker more than 63 days and 800 gallons of fuel to accomplish the first cross-country automobile journey in a 20-hp Winton. The Kors, by contrast, have planned their journey to take a bit more than 44 hours, allowing for human and canine potty breaks, in a considerably more futuristic vehicle: the largely 3-D printed, three-wheeled electric car dubbed the Urbee 2.Cody and Tyler are part of a team led by their father, Jim Kor, who is president of Kor Ecologic and one of the key designers of the incredibly efficient, aerodynamic vehicle. Its name comes from the three core tenets that went into its design: urban, electric and ethanol. The Ecologic team’s goal was to create a small car designed for urban use, powered by an electric motor and an ethanol-fueled combustion engine.The team hoped to enter the Automotive X Prize competition in 2009, but ran into a snag when they were ready to create a prototype. The fiberglass molding they had originally planned to use for their prototype proved to be too time-consuming to work within their schedule, and they were forced to withdraw from the competition. The team turned to an unlikely source for a solution: 3-D printing. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Working with 3-D printing company Stratasys, they created a 1/6th-scale model, and then finally a full-scale prototype. The three-wheeled car weighs about 1,200 pounds and features a single-cylinder 7-hp engine that uses either diesel or ethanol and networked batteries to drive two electric motors, giving it the equivalent of 16 hp and a max speed of about 70 mph. Steel tubing in the chassis and framing helps make the car strong enough to meet or exceed road-worthy safety standards.Most intriguing, more than 50 percent of the car is 3-D printed. “Everything you typically see and touch on the car, as you drive the car, will be 3-D printed,” Kor was recently quoted saying in Popular Mechanics. That method of production makes the Urbee 2 more affordable — the sticker price will likely be between $16,000 and $50,000 depending on how many are produced yearly.Even more important to Kor and his team, though, is the fact that 3-D printing allows the Urbee 2 to be manufactured with minimal environmental impact.”Designing for sustainability can arguably be stated to be humanity’s biggest and most important challenge of the coming century,” says Kor. “It’s something we absolutely need to get right.”What crazy apps and gadgets have you come across lately?

Chinese entities from nature parks to religious sites are increasingly turning to commercial activities to pay expenses as government support dwindles in a society with little charitable giving. Temples face heavy costs to maintain centuries-old buildings and gardens.But the State Administration for Religious Affairs says some local governments, businesses and individuals have built religious sites for profit, hired fake monks and tricked visitors into handing over money.A notice on its website Monday, issued jointly with the police ministry and other authorities, warned of serious punishment for officials found to be involved in religious profiteering.The new rules leave open when commercialism crosses the line to profiteering. No matter where the line might be, entrepreneurial officials and religious groups may not heed it.An employee of the Wutai Scenic District Administration’s propaganda office confirmed Wednesday that the local government was planning to pursue a stock market listing but said he couldn’t give details. The man, who would give only his surname, Bai, said he didn’t know whether the latest notice would affect that plan.The notion that some temples were becoming more about dollars than dharma first came to the fore in 2009 with reports that the legendary Shaolin monastery and martial arts center might sell shares to investors on a mainland or Hong Kong stock market. Associated PressBEIJING (AP) – China is telling tourist-favored Buddhist temples: Don’t let money be your mantra.Authorities announced a ban this week on temples selling shares to investors after leaders of several popular temples planned to pursue stock market listings for them as commercial entities. Even the Shaolin Temple of kung fu movie fame was once rumored to be planning a stock market debut _ and critics have slammed such plans as a step too far in China’s already unrestrained commercial culture. Comments Share “Everywhere in China now is about developing the economy,” complained Beijing resident Fu Runxing, a 40-year-old accountant who said he recently went to a temple where incense was priced at 300 yuan ($50) a stick.“It’s too excessive. It’s looting,” she said.Centuries-old Buddhist pilgrimage sites Mount Wutai in Shanxi province, Mount Putuo in Zhejiang and Mount Jiuhua in Anhui all were moving toward listing on stock markets in recent months to finance expansions, according to state media.The government’s religious affairs office called on local authorities to ban profiteering related to religious activity and told them not to allow religious venues to be run as business ventures or listed as corporate assets.Companies that manage temple sites may be able to bypass the prohibition on listing shares simply by excluding the temples themselves from their lists of assets. A Buddhist site at Mount Emei in Sichuan already has been on the Shenzhen stock exchange since 1997 but its listed assets include a hotel, cable car company and ticket booths _ not the temples, which date back several hundred years. Shanghai lawyer Wang Yun said the new prohibition wouldn’t likely affect Emei, but might make additional companies think twice before listing. Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Top Stories How men can have a healthy 2019 Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Turning religious sites into profit-making enterprises is certainly not limited to China, but it illustrates just how commercialized this communist country has become in the past couple of decades, with entrepreneurs seizing on every opportunity to make money. One businessman has started selling canned “fresh air” in polluted Beijing.No one could have anticipated that the poor and egalitarian China of Mao Zedong’s time would become a “Wild West” of commercialism, said Mary Bergstrom, founder of The Bergstrom Group, a marketing consultancy in Shanghai.“There aren’t the established checks and balances in China that exist in other countries ,so people are more willing and able to test the boundaries of what is acceptable, especially if the end result of these tests is potential profit,” she said.The Chinese government has strict controls on religion, with temples, churches and mosques run by state-controlled groups. Even so, religion is booming, along with tourism, giving some places a chance to cash in.The ban on profiteering from religious activity is “just a reflection of the terrible reality of the over-commercialization in recent years of temples and other places,” the Southern Metropolis Daily said in an editorial Wednesday. “People who have been to famous religious places should be familiar with expensive ticket prices and donations for all kinds of things.” Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Sponsored Stories The 1,500-year-old temple has become a lucrative business enterprise and holds registered trademarks, but its managers have denied rumors of floating shares and reiterated that denial Wednesday.___Associated Press researcher Flora Ji contributed to this report.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.
