Some MPs are warning the parliamentary work load is going to kill

first_imgOTTAWA — Some MPs are warning the high-stress, high-stakes environment of politics coupled with relentless work schedules are one day going to kill someone.Winnipeg MP Kevin Lamoureux, who has been the Liberals’ deputy house leader since the last election, says he is particularly concerned about the marathon, overnight voting sessions that are one of the few ways opposition parties have to interfere with a majority government’s ability to pass legislation.Three such marathons took place in the last Parliament and Lamoureux says he thinks it’s only a matter of time before someone dies after being forced to stay awake for 30 hours or more.Outgoing MP Tony Clement, who was a high-ranking Conservative until he got caught emailing and texting explicit images of himself last fall, says nobody knows better than he does how the pressures of political life can contribute to making horrible personal decisions.For him it’s more than just all-night voting, it’s also the constant online bullying and harassment MPs now face that are driving depression and risking suicide and premature deaths.Both say if all-night voting is banned opposition parties have to be given new ways to stage protests.Mia Rabson, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

If Mayor of Winnipeg has opinion of team name he should share

first_imgOn Twitter, a number of people had their say.https://twitter.com/SamCosta11/status/928732857400307712#ChangeTheName as “eskimo” is a colonial term used in a derogatory manner towards the Inuit and Yupik people. The name is unnecessary and inappropriate for a football team, and perhaps this decision can/will influence Dan Snyder. #NotYourMascot https://t.co/H4HQhZpbx1— not taylor day (@kawisahawii) November 9, 2017“At this point in time, we are actively engaged in listening to the conversation that people are having around our name. Those conversations are on-going and we are keenly listening to all input including from our loyal season seat holders and fans,” the statement said.“We are always interested in hearing what people think within our community and elsewhere, on this topic or any other topic related to our Football Club.”Edmonton is in Winnipeg Sunday to play for the Western Conference Championship in the CFL. Brittany Hobson APTN NewsThe Edmonton Eskimos Football club fired back at Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman over concerns about the team’s name saying if he has any opinions he should share them.“We use the Edmonton Eskimos name with pride and respect,” said the statement to APTN News. “If the Mayor of Winnipeg has an opinion he’d like to share with us, he should do so.”The back and forth started when Bowman, who is Metis, was asked about the Edmonton team’s name in a scrum.“I think there’s an opportunity to have a more inclusive name,” said Bowman.The mayor also said he raised it with Edmonton’s mayor Don Iveson.“The question was very direct have I had any conversations with him about this topic and I just provided an honest answer and the answer was yeah of course we’ve talked about it and I’ve expressed my views on it.”And Iveson seems to agree with Bowman – saying the name Eskimos may have a negative effect on the festivities around the city hosting the 2018 Grey Cup.“I think the issues not going to go away,” said Iveson Thursday. “I think the team is taking it seriously but there will have to be likely some further conversations after the season is over.”The controversy around the team’s name is nothing new.Over the years, many groups have criticized the term Eskimo – calling it an offensive term for Inuit.That includes the group that represents Inuit in Canada – the Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami.“Edmonton’s CFL team can be a leader in Canada’s movement towards reconciliation by addressing this outstanding concern,” said ITK President Natan Obed in a statement. “And I look forward to further conversations with the Edmonton team leadership, the Edmonton mayor, and all other stakeholders in bringing positive resolution to this issue.”last_img read more

Algerias Bouteflika back home but health fears remain

first_imgALGIERS – Veteran Algerian president Abdelaziz Bouteflika flew home Thursday after a Paris medical check-up that had raised questions about his ability to run for a fourth term in April.Bouteflika, 76, has ruled the north African nation continuously since 1999 but a mini-stroke that confined him to a Paris hospital for three months last year has created concerns for the political future of a country seen as pivotal to the fight against Al-Qaeda across the Sahara.The president’s office had insisted that the check-up was entirely routine and Algeria’s APS news agency reported that it had found an “an overall improvement” in his health that had enabled him to return home earlier than planned. Bouteflika has until Sunday to convene the organising committee for April’s election in which the ruling National Liberation Front (FLN) named him as its candidate in November despite his failing health.Bouteflika’s presidency has been dogged by health concerns since as far back as 2005, when he underwent surgery in Paris for a bleeding stomach ulcer, and with a leaked US diplomatic cable two years later suggesting he might be suffering from terminal cancer.The transient ischaemic attack, or mini-stroke, that he suffered last April kept him out of the country until late July and he has not been seen in public since.But he has never named a favoured successor and has not ruled out the possibility of accepting the FLN’s nomination to stand for re-election, creating mounting political uncertainty.Opposition parties have seized on his latest hospitalisation as evidence that he is incapable of carrying out his duties, let alone standing for a fourth term.“It proves once again his inability to accomplish the least of his duties, and encourages those calling for him to be declared incapacitated as stipulated by Article 88 of the constitution,” said Atmane Mazouz, spokesman for the mainly Berber Rally for Culture and Democracy.Bouteflika’s opponents had insisted the constitutional clause be invoked in April but had little chance of mustering the necessary two-thirds majority in parliament, which is dominated by the FLN.The FLN nominated the ageing president as its official candidate in November and the party’s secretary general Amar Saidani said on Sunday that he was “sure” he would run.last_img read more

The conferences were held in Kansas City, October 28-30, Baltimore, November 11-13 and Nashville, December 2-4. Each exhibit relied on a local committee to plan and run the booth with support from the National SME/GEM Committee. This year SME Student Chapters were recruited to chair two of the NSTA Conferences.In Kansas City, Barbara Robertson, administrative assistant for the Mining & Nuclear Engineering Dept. at Missouri University of Science and Technology, recruited the president and secretary of the Women in Mining Student Chapter to serve as NSTA booth chairs under the guidance of Barbara. The students secured six mineral samples and created a mineral guide, as well as collected educational material pertaining to the area. The booth was visited by approximately 1,000 teachers.The Baltimore NSTA was chaired by the Penn State SME Student Chapter led by Dr. Larry Grayson. The students worked very closely with the Pittsburgh Local GEM Section to co-ordinate the effort for the NSTA Booth. The Pittsburgh Section donated 1,500 mineral kits to the student chapter to be distributed at the booth. The show opened at 11:00am on Thursday, November 11th, where the students greeted the teachers, answered questions and handed out mineral kits to each of the visitors. The students ran out of mineral kits by 4:00pm on Friday and spent the rest of the time talking to teachers and handing out educational materials. About 2,000 teachers visited the booth.Robert (Bob) Freas led the effort for the Nashville NSTA, December 2-4. Bob was joined in the booth by Dr. Wayne Lemier of Tennessee Tech and 10 engineering students from Tennessee Tech. Together they delivered 11 different rock and mineral samples along with educational material related to the area to some 1,500 teachers. The three NSTA Conferences were a huge success reaching nearly 5,000 teachers in six weeks. The volunteers also had teachers fill out approximately 3,000 Mii contact forms, which were given to Mii for processing. Mii also provided about 300 pounds of posters, classroom activities and other free hand-outs for the visiting teachers.last_img read more

Pogba needs captaincy to emulate United legends Giggs

first_imgPaul Pogba has the potential to become a World class midfielder and become a Manchester United great if he retains the captaincy, says Ryan Giggs.Pogba led the Red Devils to victory in the opening Premier League encounter against the Foxes in the absence of Antonio Valencia.The French midfielder will lead the Red Devils out again at Brighton on Sunday, having been branded a “monster” by his boss in the wake of a goal-scoring showing in a season opener against Leicester.Giggs believes the 25-year-old needs to be given greater responsibility in order to produce his best on a more consistent basis, with the stage now set for a man who has been heavily linked with Barcelona to prove that there really is no rift between him and Mourinho at Old Trafford.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.The United legend told Sky Sports: “I think everyone recognizes the quality Paul Pogba has and he had an excellent World Cup, so after winning that it was recognition of what he can bring to the team.“From the outside, he looks like a leader but what we haven’t seen is the consistency of the likes of Bryan Robson and Roy Keane, so that extra responsibility will hopefully help him maintain his levels.“The captains I played under really had that consistency and would still contribute on their bad days and I’ve got no doubts that he will reach those levels of consistency for United and be a top, top player.”last_img read more

Nomura reiterates Buy on Maruti Suzuki after premiumisation launch of Ignis

first_imgThe brokerage highlighted that MSIL is targeting the new millennials (consumers aged under 29), who are willing to pay more for premium features. Apart from meeting the domestic demand, the car has a potential for exports to South Asia and South-East Asia later, it highlighted. However, in the short term, production constraints could limit material market share gains for MSIL.Nomura analysts factored in nominal volumes in FY17 and about 5,000 units of incremental Ignis sales per month in FY18 but said there can be upside given the attractive pricing. The segment size is about 55,000 units per month. Following the aggressive pricing of Ignis, the analysts said there could be some impact on Swift. However, as MSIL is rumoured to introduce a new Swift in 2017 based on a completely new rigid and lighter platform (like the Baleno), that should address the decline.”Overall, we have built in ~3% volume growth in FY17F and ~15% CAGR for MSIL over FY18-19F,” Nomura analysts said in the research note.”Management indicated that impact of demonetisation has been limited and targets double-digit growth in FY17. Thus, we believe there can be further upside to our volume estimates for MSIL, and maintain it as our top pick,” they added. Buoyed by Maruti Suzuki India Limited’s (MSIL) “premiumisation theme” after the carmaker launched the new Ignis, brokerage Nomura reiterated its Buy call on MSIL with a target price of Rs 6,576, which marks a 14 percent upside from its current price of Rs 5,777. Also read: Maruti Suzuki Ignis logs over 6000 bookings in 2 weeks; waiting period goes up to 2 monthsLast week, MSIL unveiled the Ignis in the premium affordable hatchback segment at a very attractive price, starting at Rs 4.59 lakh.Nomura said in a research report that the pricing of the petrol variant is likely to provide stiff competition to the KUV100/Grand i10, while the diesel variant is priced at a 10% premium to similar variants. The pricing (excluding the base petrol variant) makes it sit at a 5% premium to Swift but below Baleno. last_img read more

Read Full Text Naresh Goyal assures light at the end of the

first_imgFormer Jet Airways Chairman Naresh GoyalCredit: ReutersNaresh Goyal had stepped down as Jet Airways chairman on Monday, ending months-long suspense over the future of India’s largest full-service carrier. His wife Anita had also tendered her resignation to the board.The Goyals’ stake in the company also reduced from 51 per cent to 25 per cent. Goyal later sent an emotional farewell letter to his staff to reassure that the company is working on restoring “much-needed stability”. He added that the company’s shareholders have approved the bank-led resolution plan (BLRP), which is a step for a “sounder and sustainable financial footing”. Here is the full text of the letter sent to the 22,000 Jet Airways employees. My dear Colleagues,For the past 25 years, Jet Airways has been a way of life for Anita and me. Very few people are fortunate enough to live their dreams and we have been truly blessed to be one among those few.My dream started out as the simple yearning of a simple man, a desire to bring the joy of flying to every Indian. Two and a half decades later, what we have built together, far exceeds anything I dared to imagine back then.I have watched with pride as our airline has grown from a fleet of just 4 aircraft flying to 12 destinations in our first year, to a peak fleet of 124 aircraft connecting our guests to over 550 destinations worldwide. We connected the length and breadth of India at a time when flying was still considered a luxury in our country, growing to become India’s premiere full-service airline and a true flag-bearer of warm Indian hospitality around the world.This has all been possible because of the tireless, unrelenting efforts of each and every one of you, tight-knit members of our Jet Airways family, setting guest-service benchmarks to the envy of our competitors, helping us collectively realise our dream of our Jet Airways emerging as a global gold standard of warm Indian hospitality. It has truly been a labour of love that Anita and I, together with all of you have built collectively with our blood, toil and tears. Looking back I would not want to change a thing. Not the triumphs, nor the trials and tribulations, challenges nor sweat equity.But, today, as I ponder on the past and look to the future, I do realise that there must come a day when the torch that we have carried all this while, will need to be passed on. Today, I would like to take a moment to appreciate and acknowledge the beautiful people in my life: the ones I have laughed with and cried with, the ones I have shared my deepest thoughts with, as well as the ones that have recently appeared full of kindness and compassion, and I know, without a doubt that I have been blessed beyond words. I would also like to take this moment, to acknowledge the contribution of my wife, confidant and partner Anita without whom this journey would just not have been possible.And now I would like to humbly and with immense love and gratitude, inform you that both Anita and myself are stepping down from the Board of Directors of Jet Airways with immediate effect. Our airline stands poised to turn the page, ready to fly out from the turbulence of recent months and soar forth into a bright new future. Our shareholders have approved the Bank-led Resolution Plan (BLRP), which marks a definitive step in our efforts to guide Jet Airways onto a sounder and sustainable financial footing. There is light at the end of the tunnel and that is why I feel the time is now right for us to hand over the reins of our beloved airline to a new generation of leaders that I am certain will take Jet Airways to even greater heights.I would be lying, if I said this was not an emotional moment for us. Jet Airways, its employees both past and present, shareholders, partners, regulators, and most importantly our dear guests, are our family and there is no sacrifice both Anita and I would not make to ensure the best interests of our Jet Airways family are safely secured. We have not come to this decision lightly but this is not the end of the journey, rather it is the start of a brand new chapter.I am stepping down as the Chairman of the Board, but both Anita and I remain committed to seeing Jet Airways embark on a dynamic new chapter. In a different capacity, we shall remain just as devoted to cementing Jet Airways’ place as the gold standard of service excellence in Indian skies. And we look forward to sharing the next chapter in our airline’s journey with you as it soars ahead into a new dawn, filled with hope for a future of growth, prosperity and success.Lastly, both Anita and I would simply like to thank you all for the dedication, commitment and service over the past twenty five years.Most sincerely,Naresh Goyallast_img read more

Fifty years later comes Stanley Kubrick explanation of baffling end of 2001

first_imgIf there’s one topic that has kept people caught up in endless debates, it’s the meaning of the end of the film 2001: A Space Odyssey. Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece, released in 1968, has intrigued, puzzled, and challenged audiences, particularly in its last half hour. The film depicts its star, Dr. David Bowman, played by Keir Dullea, alone on his spacecraft after he figured out a way to disengage the computer, HAL, that had already killed another astronaut.Dullea’s mission is to learn the origin and purpose of a monolith. At one point he leaves his ship and is caught up in a rushing vortex of light and sound. Then he finds himself in a bedroom strangely decorated as if he were in the 18th century.This is followed by Dullea aging, possibly dying, before transforming into an infant, an orbiting being some call the Star Child.Stanley Kubrick, aged 21, in 1949Some critics didn’t go for it. Renata Adler of The New York Times wrote: “By the end, three unreconciled plot lines — the slabs, Dullea’s aging, the period bedroom — are simply left there like a Rorschach, with murky implications of theology.”But Roger Ebert loved the film, saying in his review, “Only a few films are transcendent, and work upon our minds and imaginations like music or prayer or a vast belittling landscape.”Closing scene of “Dr. Strangelove,” Kubrick’s sardonic fulfillment of a nuclear nightmare.Of the end, Ebert wrote: “What Kubrick is saying, in the final sequence, apparently, is that man will eventually outgrow his machines, or be drawn beyond them by some cosmic awareness. He will then become a child again, but a child of an infinitely more advanced, more ancient race, just as apes once became, to their own dismay, the infant stage of man.”Since 1968, theories have raged over whether the end of 2001 was a depiction of the meaning of life, or something else entirely.Modern replica of the Discovery One spaceship model. Photo by FaceMePLS CC BY 2.0One person who wasn’t explaining the end of the film was Kubrick himself, despite many pleas. He said he wanted to avoid over-intellectualizing and instead reach the viewer’s subconscious.Kubrick died in 1999. But a lost interview has just surfaced in which the acclaimed director does indeed talk about the end of 2001.Stanley Kubrick’s classic film ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ has its trailer released in time to coincide with the film’s original release 50 years ago.The interview was conducted by Japanese filmmaker Jun’ichi Yaoi, who in 1980 was making a documentary about the paranormal and received permission to visit the set of Kubrick’s film The Shining. He interviewed the director there about several of his films, including 2001.Actor Keir Dullea in “2001: A Space Odyssey.” Photo by Dmitri Kessel/The LIFE Picture Collection/Getty ImagesStrangely, the documentary was never officially released.

They put him in what I suppose you could describe as a human zoo to study him, and his whole life passes from that point on in that room. And he has no sense of time. It just seems to happen as it does in the film.They choose this room, which is a very inaccurate replica of French architecture — deliberately so, inaccurate — because one was suggesting that they had some idea of something that he might think was pretty, but wasn’t quite sure. Just as we’re not quite sure what do in zoos with animals to try to give them what we think is their natural environment.”One of HAL 9000’s interfaces.

No this isnt a real Pride flag—it represents pedophiles

first_imgA fake Pride flag used by pedophile groups like MAPs Got a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us . GAYSTARNEWS- A group known as MAPs (or Minor Attracted Persons, not to be confused with the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) has been circulating its own version of the Pride flag.Another term for ‘pedophile’MAPs attempts to soften the idea of pedophilia by insisting it’s not wrong if there is no contact.‘”John” was suicidal. He had been bullied by trolls on social media for most of his life for being different. The bullies were primarily people who claimed, based on their religious beliefs, that “John” was going to hell and deserved to die. They described how they would kill him on his twitter page and people supported their hate. Desperate for help, John sought treatment for his shame, depression, and suicidality. Although he was scared to share about himself with a stranger, he felt desperate for help as he had NO desire to harm anyone, ever. Once he shared about his attraction to children, his therapist told him, “I don’t treat sex offenders,”’ a passage on The Prevention Project about MAPs reads.‘First, let’s be clear. “John” is not a child molester nor is he a sex offender. He has an attraction to children. He is also fervent about helping prevent child sexual abuse by speaking out against it and by showing his support of global child sexual abuse prevention programs on his social media. “John” deserves support as do others who have a minor attraction. After all, isolation and depression are known to increase one’s risk of doing something they might regret.By the way, we have talked to “Janes” who are women who identify as anti-contact, non-offending pedophiles and like “John”, they have no desire to sexually harm children.’Considering the long-standing trope that LGBTI people are rapists and/or child molesters, the fact those who actually have attraction to children are attempting to co-opt LGBTI spaces is disturbing.Social media reactionsMany on social media are warning LGBTI people and allies to be wary of the MAPs flag during Pride season. Additionally, many also called out the problematic nature of using a term like ‘minor attracted persons’ to humanize pedophiles.PSA TO MINORS: IF YOU SEE THIS “””PRIDE””” FLAG ANYWHERE BE WARNEDthis flag is for MAPs, which stands for minor attracted person(s)THIS IS A FLAG FOR PEDOPHILES pic.twitter.com/agx2ryySqx— Fish!

New name reflects increased scope national role for ITAC

first_imgNew name reflects increased scope, national role for ITAC << Previous PostNext Post >> Posted by Share Travelweek Group CALGARY — The Aboriginal Tourism Association of Canada is now the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada.An Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada (ITAC) member survey from April 2017 indicated that 80% of those responding prefer the organization use ‘Indigenous’ instead of ‘Aboriginal’ in its name.“The name change reflects what our members want, and also responds well to the visitor research conducted with Destination Canada this fall on our largest visitor market, the U.S.,” says Keith Henry, President and CEO of the Indigenous Tourism Association of Canada.Henry said research showed that the U.S. travel consumer’s understanding of ‘Aboriginal’ was low. The name change also responds to the growing international awareness of Indigenous tourism in Canada. It also differentiates Canada’s tourism product from competing destinations, such as Australia where the term Aboriginal has broader acknowledgement on an international scale.For more information see indigenoustourism.ca.

Pleased to meet you When the Beatles met the Stones

first_img AFP The Rolling Stones, Charlie Watts, left, Mick Jagger, center, and Keith Richards during a “12-12-12 Concert For Sandy Relief” at Madison Square Garden in New York. The Rolling Stones announced April 3 a highly anticipated nine-city North American tour ahead of their first gig in London’s Hyde Park in more than four decades. Don Emmert/AFP Everybody knows how adorably goofy and good-natured the Beatles could come across in their radio and television interviews, especially during the first flush of Beatlemania. In real life, however, they often struck people differently. Writer Barry Miles recalls that when the Beatles relocated to London from Liverpool in the spring of 1963, they seemed bent on projecting an “an intentionally intimidating image.” The teen-oriented Boyfriend magazine went so far as to describe the Beatles as “almost frightening looking young men.” When they weren’t smiling, the magazine said, “they looked wicked and dreadful and distinctly evil, in an eighteenth century sort of way.”It probably would not have been easy, in the spring of 1963, to impose upon the Beatles, or to ask them for a favor. Nevertheless, on the afternoon April 14, Giorgio Gomelsky – a Soviet-born, Swiss-educated rhythm and blues promoter – approached the Fab Four at a television studio where they were taping their third appearance on the pop music show “Thank Your Lucky Stars.”“Hey you guys, you’ve got to listen to this band on the way home tonight,” he pleaded. “You’ve got to come see this band when you finish recording the show, it’s on the way back, you’ve just got to come.”He was talking about the Rolling Stones. And his timing was propitious. Having recently arrived in London, the Beatles and their entourage were curious to find out what was happening in the city’s music scene.Sure enough, shortly after the Stones started their second set at the Crawdaddy Club, in Southwest London, bassist Bill Wyman was “staggered” to look up and see “four shadowy figures” standing shoulder-to-shoulder in the audience, all of them dressed in matching suede overcoats and leather caps. “S—, that’s the Beatles!” he recalls exclaiming to himself. Keith Richards tells the story similarly: “We’re playing a pub … and we’re whacking out our show and everybody’s having a good time, ya know? I suddenly turn around: there’s these four guys in black leather overcoats standing there. Oh f— me! Look who’s here!”The Beatles’ road manager, Neil Aspinall, thought the Stones were just “OK” that night – not particularly better or worse than a typical Liverpool band playing at the Cavern Club. But the Beatles were more effusive. “I remember standing in some sweaty room and watching them on the stage,” Ringo said years later. “Keith and Brian, wow! I knew then that the Stones were great.” George was struck by the tremendous enthusiasm of the Stones’ fans. “The audience screamed and shouted and danced on tables,” he recalled.No one lingered around or chatted with fans for very long after the gig, since Brian Jones had invited the Beatles and their crew over to the Stones’ slummy Edith Grove apartment. The richest first-hand account of what happened next comes from James Phelge, who was living with Mick, Keith and Brian at the time. When the Beatles arrived, Phelge recalls, “they carried themselves with the air of a professional outfit. … All the members of their entourage were smartly dressed in the same dark-colored overcoats as the band, giving the appearance of one big team.” A few in the Beatles’ camp may have been disgusted by the putrid condition of the Stones’ dimly lit flat – the piled-high dishes, overflowing ashtrays, and accumulated rubbish – but Phelge says that Paul, at least, “did not seem unduly perturbed by anything – the look on his face said, ‘I’ve been here before.’”All night long, records spun successively on the turntable, and the members of each group shared their musical likes and dislikes. The Stones played the Beatles five demo tracks they’d just recorded at IBC Studios, and they were eager to show off their treasured collection of American imports. They were caught off guard, however, when Lennon was sharply dismissive of one of their heroes, the blues legend Jimmy Reed.Another big topic was how to make money in the music business. Until that point, no British pop acts had been able to maintain their success over the long term, and everyone thought it was only a matter of time before the Beatles’ pubescent fans moved on in search of someone else to idolize. Even the Beatles believed that. At the time, they were chiefly concerned with parlaying their brief burst of popular success into the biggest possible financial windfall. The most the Stones could have hoped for is that they, too, would have a brief run at the top.Despite being the hottest group in England at the time, in some respects the Beatles may have felt apprehensive in the Stones’ company. Like many Merseysiders of Northern England, the Beatles were sensitive to any hint of condescension from their Southern neighbors. They dreaded being stereotyped as Scousers, hicks or provincials. That may well explain why they could seem so standoffish to outsiders; it was a defensive posture.Meanwhile, the Stones fancied themselves hip Londoners; they were obsessed with a particular style of cool – which they associated with reticence and self-possession – and so they were bemused by the Beatles’ amiable goofball shtick: their corny repartee and obvious eagerness to please. They were also proud to have built up a cult following with the “right” type of fans: discerning bohemians, as opposed to the hysterical teenyboppers the Beatles were winning over. They didn’t yet have a record contract, but they surely sensed that one was in the offing.John likely enjoyed talking with Brian, perhaps the most musically gifted and deeply knowledgeable member of the Stones. When the two fell into conversation they discovered that they both had infant sons named Julian. (Lennon’s son was only six days old.) But Jones’ musical knowledge could also be intimidating. Years later, Lennon recalled the moment that night when Brian asked him whether it was a harmonica or a harp that he’d played on “Love Me Do.”Oblivious to the subtle distinction between the two instruments, Lennon answered, “A harmonica with a button,” meaning a chromatic harmonica, of the type that was used by the jazz and big band acts of the ’40s and ’50s. (Lennon had shoplifted it from a music store in Arnhem, Holland, in 1960.) A “harp,” or diatonic harmonica, offers fewer notes, but allows players to get a wailing bluesy sound by bending pitches. All the classical bluesmen used harps, and an aficionado like Jones likely would have regarded chromatic harmonicas as passé.Lennon apparently came around to that view as well. Six weeks later, on June 1, 1963, the Beatles were getting ready to perform Chuck Berry’s “I Got To Find My Baby” for the BBC radio show “Pop Goes the Beatles.” When deejay Lee Peters tried to introduce the song by saying that it would feature Lennon on the harmonica, Lennon sharply cut him off.“Harp! It’s a harp,” Lennon said.“What’s a harp?” Peters asked, obviously taken aback.“The harp. I’m playing a harp on this one.” “You’re playing a harp?”“Harmonica I play on ‘Love Me Do.’ Harp on this one.”There wasn’t any “rivalry” yet between the Beatles and the Stones, of course. But for all they had in common, the members of the two bands must have recognized they had some opposing qualities as well. It wasn’t for nothing that in January 1988, when Mick Jagger inducted the Beatles into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame, he dwelled at some length about the very first time he met the Beatles. He didn’t regard them as the least bit cuddly or lovable. Instead, he said, they struck him as a “four-headed monster.”© 2013,Slate Facebook Commentscenter_img No related posts.last_img read more
