Flack is one of only two artists who have won Grammys for record of the year two years in a row.

Terrill, File) Grammy winning artists reflect on what makes a song a hitcenter_img NASHVILLE, Tenn. – What makes a song THE song of the eyes of The Recording Academy? In the history of the 59 record of the year winners at the Grammy Awards, sometimes those songs captured the mood or sentiment of a universal emotion, or showcased a singer’s supreme talent. Sometimes the Grammy-winning song benefited from being featured in a hit film, or became a cultural touchstone for a year. And often these songs are just insatiably catchy and fun.Many of these records of the year become pop music standards, still widely beloved and influential today, from Tony Bennett’s “I Left My Heart in San Francisco,” to the Eagles’ “Hotel California” and Michael Jackson’s “Beat It.” Still other songs quickly lose their popularity as trends change or the artists who made them popular grow tired of repeating them.Just ask Art Garfunkel why “Mrs. Robinson,” the hit song that was the first of two record of the year wins for Simon & Garfunkel, is still a great song today.“It really swung,” Garfunkel said of the tune, which won in 1969. “It was infectious. It made you get up out of your seat and get on the dance floor. You can’t ignore that the rhythm cooked. That’s why it was a hit. Paul Simon plays great acoustic Martin guitar.”The song wasn’t fully complete when it appeared in the hit film “The Graduate,” so the film version just has the two singers vocalizing a missing verse with “do-do-do-do-do.” And it’s widely considered the first rock ‘n’ roll song to be named record of the year.“I give the credit to Mike Nichols,” Garfunkel said of the film’s director, who had the folk rockers help him with the soundtrack. “It was Mike as a film director who was open to rock ‘n’ roll and started looking at what we rockers were doing in our world and how it might sync into the film world.”For singer Roberta Flack, she benefited from the right timing. Flack, one of only two artists who have won the category two years in a row, had released her song “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” years before it won in 1973.“Clint Eastwood called, wanting to have it as a part of his film, ‘Play Misty for Me,’” said Flack in an email interview. “The record label wanted to have it re-recorded with a faster tempo, but he said he wanted it exactly as it was. With the song as a theme song for his movie, it gained a lot of popularity and then took off.”Flack won again the next year for the song “Killing Me Softly With His Song,” which also became a hit when it was re-imagined as a hip-hop song by the Fugees in 1996.Country vocal trio Lady Antebellum were just as surprised as anyone else when their name was called on that Grammy stage for record of the year for their hit “Need You Now” in 2011. Going up against artists like Jay-Z and Eminem, they figured they were the underdogs.“We were shocked,” said singer Charles Kelley. “I think we were just the little engine that could and it sounded like nothing else that had come out that year.”“We still felt new. We felt like the Nashville band that was out of place at the big party,” said singer Dave Haywood.Ann Powers, music critic and correspondent for NPR Music, said that Grammy voters, who have to be directly involved with recording to be eligible to vote, love artists like songwriter Carole King who are considered “insiders” within the musical community. But that doesn’t mean voters aren’t swayed by other factors.“The Grammys are not a popularity contest,” said Powers. “They are not just about numbers, but they are heavily influenced by commercial success.”Jackson had a record-breaking Grammy sweep in 1984 with eight wins thanks to his ground-breaking album “Thriller,” which remains the bestselling album of all time. It cemented him as a cultural phenomenon who still influences artists today.“He had incredible, unrivaled commercial success,” Powers said. “He was a great dancer. He was an amazing singer. He had the best producers. And he was innovative in this new art form, the music video.”Sometimes a win for record of the year is a cultural statement. Take the first country song to win in the category, the Dixie Chicks’ “Not Ready to Make Nice,” in 2007. It was a direct rebuke of Nashville’s country music community, which turned its back on the group in the wake of comments lead singer Natalie Maines made about then-President George W. Bush about the second Iraq War.“Them winning record of the year, winning these major Grammys, was the Los Angeles-based music industry saying country is behind the times and they are regressive and they are not supporting artists that deserve to be supported,” Powers said.But the popularity of a song after winning a Grammy can sometimes become a burden. Bobby McFerrin’s hit a capella song “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” introduced the acclaimed jazz vocalist to a much wider audience and even George H.W. Bush started using it as a presidential campaign theme. But it also suffered a backlash, and McFerrin told The Associated Press in 2013 that he hasn’t played the song in its entirety since 1988. It won in 1989.Eric Clapton wrote his Grammy-winning song “Tears in Heaven” after the death of his 4-year-old son in 1991, but the guitar legend told the AP in 2004 that he had decided to stop playing the song.Even the artists can’t always predict a hit. Garfunkel was initially unsure about their second record of the year win, “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” when they were in the studio recording it. He thought the song started too slow, but their label head Clive Davis loved the unconventional style.“I thought it was a dark horse with an outside chance,” Garfunkel said of the song, which won in 1971.It has since been covered by dozens of artists, including Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Fiona Apple. The song just last year topped Billboard’s U.K. singles chart when it was recorded by an all-star cast as a charity for victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.Garfunkel still loves performing “Bridge Over Troubled Water” during his shows. “I look at it as a terrific song with a great melody that I want to execute better tonight than I have ever done in my life,” Garfunkel said.The 60th annual Grammy Awards will be held Sunday in New York City and aired on CBS.__Online:www.grammy.comlast_img read more

(AP Photo/Christophe Ena) A big night for NBC, led again by Lindsey Vonncenter_img NEW YORK, N.Y. – Highlights from media coverage of the Pyeongchang Olympics:BIG NIGHT: NBC may owe Lindsey Vonn some stock options after the Pyeongchang Games. She helped reignite interest in the Olympics with her bronze-medal performance in the downhill, and returned Wednesday for what had to be NBC’s favourite night. American medal winners were everywhere, from the historic first gold in cross-country by the relay team of Jessica Diggins and Kikkan Randall, high-flyers David Wise and Alex Ferreira in the halfpipe and the bobsled team of Elana Meyers Taylor and Lauren Gibbs. Vonn returned, along with American teammate Mikaela Shiffrin, for their final competition in South Korea. The night before, NBC drew 20.5 million viewers to the network, its cable sister NBCSN and streaming services, making it the first night of the Olympics that they improved upon the ratings for the corresponding night in Sochi four years ago. Getting a bigger audience for any show after four years is an increasingly rare trick in television.MILES AWAY: It was a splendid, nearly voice-shredding call in the thrilling cross-country race by NBC’s Chad Salmela and Steve Schlanger. Even more impressive, it was done from thousands of miles away. They weren’t in Pyeongchang, and instead called the race off television monitors from a booth in NBC Sports’ facility in Stamford, Connecticut. NBC was ham-fisted in the way it inserted commercials into the race and, particularly for Diggins’ final leg, should have aired it straight through.STOLEN MOMENT: “The Germans steal the gold,” said NBC’s Leigh Diffey, calling the two-women bobsled competition. No, they won the gold. We understand it would have been a better story for NBC if Taylor and Gibbs had won gold for the U.S. team, but that call was unfair to German bobsledders Mariama Jamanka and Lisa Buckwitz.QUOTE: “They’re just bouncing around like overcooked noodles.” —NBC’s Bode Miller, describing how skis were hitting the hard surface in the downhill portion of the women’s combined ski event.WOMEN FIRST: NBC is on the brink of a historic accomplishment: The Pyeongchang Games will mark the first time female athletes have been featured more than men on a U.S. network’s prime-time Olympic coverage. That’s the prediction from three professors who have been tracking the gender breakdown of coverage for each Olympics since 1994. It’s a turnaround not just from tradition but from the first 10 nights of Pyeongchang telecasts, when men had a clear edge. That was erased with the focus on American skiers Vonn and Shiffrin, and the trend is likely to continue with women’s figure skating a big feature of the second week. Women have won a majority of Team USA’s medals so far. While not perfect, “it’s clear that NBC’s Olympic coverage is leading any advancement for women athletes,” said Andrew Billings, a University of Alabama professor who conducts the study with James Angelini of the University of Delaware and Paul MacArthur of Utica College.CURLING HUMOR: U.S. curler Matt Hamilton exasperated NBC’s Trenni Kusnierek when she asked how the team would be able to beat the feared Canadians in their next match. “Make more shots than they do,” he said.BURTON: Not only athletes get the recover-from-adversity treatment. NBCSN aired a strong profile on the founder of the Burton snowboard manufacturer and his fight back from a rare neurological disease.___More AP Olympic coverage: https://wintergames.ap.orglast_img read more

diplomat of the Donald Trump administration has said This approach was opposed to the "predatory" economic behaviour of China that’s creating burden on countries in the region principal deputy assistant secretary for south and central Asian affairs Alice Wells said Representational image Courtesy: News18 "We intend to work together and with partner nations in support of high-standard projects that make economic sense that genuinely benefit the recipient countries and that can attract private capital so as to lift nations up rather than weigh them down in unsustainable debt" she told PTI Wells who has been heading the South and Central Asia Bureau of the state department since 26 June 2017 in the absence of a full-fledged assistant secretary of state recently returned from New Delhi where she participated in a trilateral dialogue involving the US India and Japan Initiated by Japan and supported by the US and India the three countries are working on projects that can provide an alternative to what the former secretary of state Rex Tillerson described as the "predatory" economics of China Wells said "As then secretary Tillerson noted countries should not have to take on unsustainable debt in order to build the sort of crucial infrastructure they need to develop their economies" she said while refraining from naming the projects that the three countries are working together on for the region The top US official said that the three countries shared the commitment to the principles of sustainable growth transparency the rule of law and a legal and regulatory environment "The Indo-Pacific strategy recognises that there are both substantial challenges and opportunities in the region and that our partners and allies in the region share our vital interest in upholding the rules-based order" she said The recent US-India-Japan Trilateral Dialogue was a good example of this approach Wells said "We addressed efforts to enhance cooperation on regional connectivity and infrastructure and discussed maritime issues as well as serious security threats such asNorth Korea and non-proliferation" Wells said in response to a question The US and India are working bilaterally and in cooperation with other like-minded partners like Japan and Australia to advance their shared vision for the Indo-Pacific she said "India is one of our lead security partners in the Indo-Pacific region and a ‘major defence partner’ a status unique to India" Wells said "We will continue to work toward stronger strategic ties and a more integrated defence trade relationship that will enhance India’s leadership role in the Indo-Pacific region" she said Wells said the US’ bilateral defence cooperation with India had grown "significantly" in recent years "The defence sales to India have grown from virtually zero to over $15 billion in the last decade" she said adding that the Trump administration was committed to working with India to offer the best platforms and technologies available By Jason Lange WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Every two years a small league of political scientists and economists fire up computer models they’ve developed to predict who will win the US congressional elections in November Several who use economic data in their models have concluded that unless the economy gets quite a bit stronger Republicans will not be able to retain their hold on Congress The US economy is doing well by many measures But their analysis based on data running back to the 1940s or earlier gives evidence Democrats have a good chance of winning at least 23 seats at November’s midterm polls enough to take control of the House of Representatives One leading model developed by Michael Lewis-Beck of the University of Iowa and Charles Tien of City University of New York uses after-tax personal income growth as a key indicator That model predicts Republicans will hold on to their majority if incomes grow at least 34 percent in the first six months of this year If it did that it would be the strongest six-month pace for income growth in two decades A burst of income growth is still possible But data published on Friday suggests Republicans could come up short with after-tax incomes up a modest 15 percent in the six months through May according to the Commerce Department At that pace their model suggests Republicans will lose 32 seats "This just spells trouble for Republicans" said Lewis-Beck Presidential approval ratings are the other critical factor in the model weighing more heavily than income With Trump’s rating at 42 percent in Gallup’s early June polls Lewis-Beck said "the economy has got to really be rocking for them to overcome that drag" In the 2014 midterms the two researchers predicted Democrats would lose 15 seats They lost 13 Lewis-Beck and Tien will finalize their forecast in late July They are part of a group of top forecasters who will unveil predictions at a political science conference in Boston that begins August 30 Gamesmanship has crept into past conferences with some scholars making small wagers Most rely on polling data rather than economic data for predicting midterms races James Campbell of the University at Buffalo will make predictions based on how many House seats are seen as vulnerable by analysts at the Cook Political Report Campbell was off by three seats in 2014 So far this year his model points to Republican losses of over 40 seats "It looks pretty devastating" he said But Ray Fair a Yale University economist said polls don’t explain what drives voter decisions and don’t necessarily make for better forecasts Fair stands apart from political scientists because he uses gauges of inflation and economic growth reasoning that a strong economy and low inflation favor the president’s party His forecast currently shows Democrats getting 52 percent of the vote in House races While Fair doesn’t calculate seat shares — he’s less interested in political results — Campbell and other political scientists said 52 percent would likely be enough for Democrats to take the House "What’s holding the Republicans back is that output growth is kind of mediocre" Fair said A burst of economic activity — that is growth in gross domestic product per capita of at least 32 percent in the second or third quarter of this year — could push the Democratic share below 51 percent according to Fair who uses data going back to 1916 That’s enough to keep the House in Republican hands according to Campbell and other political scientists Since Trump took office in 2017 growth in per capital GDP has accelerated slightly but has held between 06 percent and 24 percent (Reporting by Jason Lange; Editing by Damon Darlin and Chizu Nomiyama) This story has not been edited by

and brand building with Adil Zainulbhai DG Quality Council of India By Prachi Salve Alison Saldanha and Vipul Vivek Amravati / Mumbai: A plentiful harvest in 2016 and imports drive some prices down 63percent A shortage of cash because of demonetisation Despite Rs 35 lakh crore–enough to build 545 Tehri-sized dams invested over six decades to 2011 more than half of all farms depend on rains These are the three factors agitating Indians who depend on farming – 90 million families or 546 percent of India’s 12 billion people As anger sweeps rural Madhya Pradesh after the death of six farmers in police firing farm protests roil rural Maharashtra —wholesale markets are shut produce is being dumped on streets —and governments of the debt-ridden states struggle to respond to demands for loan waivers an IndiaSpend analysis and reportage from rural Maharashtra explores why farmers are both angry and desperate The primary reason farming is unviable in India is that farms are now among the world’s smallest (the global average land-holding size is 55 hectares) —too many people are dependent on shrinking farms Since 1951 the per capita availability of land has declined by 70percent from 05 hectares to 015 hectares in 2011 and is likely to decline further according to ministry of agriculture data Such “small and marginal land-holdings” as they are called now constitute 85percent of the number of operational farms in the country according this 2015-16 report on the state of Indian agriculture It is hard to use modern machinery on small farms the owners of which are often too poor to afford farm equipment Manual labour increases costs but labour too has been in short supply as workers migrate to cities Further their size and output limits access to loans and institutional credit Those are the larger issues Here are the three reasons for the current turmoil gleaned by IndiaSpend’s analysts and reporters: 1 After back-to-back droughts a good harvest but incomes fall As 2017 rolled in the news from India’s farms appeared good After droughts in 2014 and 2015 a good monsoon in 2016 reversed two years of rural economic decline India’s agricultural growth contracted 02 percentin 2014-15 and grew no more than 12 percentin 2015-16 because of the back-to-back droughts In 2016-17 the agricultural economy grew 41 percent Across many states growing pulses such as Maharashtra Karnataka Telangana and Gujarat markets were flooded with produce especially tur (pigeon pea) which witnessed the highest growth among all pulses an important source of protein for a majority of Indians India is the world’s largest pulses producer However an influx of pulses from Myanmar Tanzania Mozambique and Malawi–growing 20 percent over two financial quarters from September 2016 to March 2017 The Business Standard reported on March 3 2017–caused the price of Indian tur to plunge "Local tur isn’t in excess this year This is "bumper crop" because the govt signed a 5-yr contract to import tur" pictwittercom/YkB7OR043r — Alison (@bexsaldanha) May 17 2017 From Rs 11000 per quintal (from December 2015) the price of tur fell 63percent to Rs 3800-4000 per quintal — 20percent below the minimum support price (MSP)–the price at which government buys farm produce–of Rs 5050 per quintal (including a bonus of Rs 425) since December 2016 as Indiaspend reported on 12 April 2017 Source: Ministry of Agriculture The table above explains how production of pulses rose 29 percent from 1715 million tonnes in 2014-15 to 2214 million tonnes in 2016-17 Tur production increased 50percent from 281 million tonnes to 423 million tonnes over the same period The MSP for tur should be increased to Rs 6000 per quintal in 2017 and Rs 7000 per quintal in 2018 a government committee headed by chief economic adviser Arvind Subramanian recommended in September 2016 Minimum Support Price For Pulses For Kharif (July to October) Crops 2016-17 and Rabi (October to March) Crops 2017-18 Source: Food Corporation of India As on March 2017 the minimum support price for tur was Rs 5050 per quintal nearly 20 percent (18percent) lower than the prices recommended by the committee on pulses As these prices crashed farmers found it harder to find money to store their produce and prepare for the next season because demonetisation–the withdrawal of 86 percent of India’s currency by value on November 2016 –left them starved of cash 2 How demonetisation — and government red tape — left farmers short of cash On 18 May at around noon 30-year-old Prashant Lande waited under a harsh summer sun to sell 800 quintals of tur at the Amravati agricultural produce market committee (APMC) 664 km east of India’s financial capital Mumbai From Kinhala village in Amravati district’s Ashti taluka in Maharashtra’s eastern region of Vidharbha Lande said he refuses to sell his 800 quintals of tur to the government procurement centre although the state buys tur at a higher rate At the market Lande could sell his tur at Rs 3800 to Rs 4000 per quintal while the government buying centre offered Rs 5050 per quintal “We don’t sell to the government centre because the process of selling takes one month — from standing in line for the token to the sale to finally when the payment reaches the account” said Lande “Our fellow farmers who have sold their produce at the procurement centre on March 22 are yet to receive their payments and it is nearly June” It does not help that the effects of demonetisation continue to to be felt across the rural economy File image of a farmer protesting in Nagpur PTI Right after demonetisation tomato farmers in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu and onion farmers in Maharashtra and Gujarat were the worst hit as prices fell by 60-85 percent IndiaSpend reported on January 18 2017 With little respite more than six months later the experiment has aggravated the circumstances leading to the current farmers’ strike “By now we should have begun preparing our fields for the monsoons but because of demonetisation and the unavailability of cash we are still struggling to find money for sowing” said Lande At such a time farmers like Lande turn to credit Up to 57percent of farm families in Maharashtra are indebted; the figure for India is 52percent according to the National Sample Survey Organisation’s 2013 situation assessment survey of farm households the latest available data This indebtedness has widespread consequences More farmers committed suicide in Maharashtra (4291) in 2015 than any other state rising 7percent from 4004 in 2014 followed by Karnataka (1569) and Telangana (1400) as IndiaSpend previously reported in January 2017 Now after Uttar Pradesh’s new government waived Rs 30792 crore of farm loans pressure is building on the governments of Maharashtra Madhya Pradesh Tamil Nadu and Karnataka to do the same Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis has been reluctant to do so but with his government’s coalition partner the Shiv Sena and other parties preparing for a political agitation he may find it hard to exercise fiscal prudence 3 In an era of climate change 52 percent of Indian farmers without irrigation The basic problem across most of rural India is that despite the spread of irrigation–a sector plagued by unfinished projects and corruption – 52 percent of India’s farms still depend on the vagaries of rain which is becoming increasingly uncertain in an era of climate change Extreme rainfall events in central India the core of the monsoon system are increasing and moderate rainfall is decreasing— as a part of complex changes in local and world weather — according to a clutch of Indian and global studies as IndiaSpend reported on 15 April 2015 The droughts of 2014 and 2015 in rural Maharashtra were mitigated by the plentiful rains of 2016 but many parts of the state also endured floods Uncertain weather affects the ability of government extension systems to provide accurate advice to farmers “The government encouraged us to grow more tur in the kharif (July to October) season since these crops consume less water and are in high demand” said Lande the Vidarbha farmer “We would not have faced so much loss over the last three years had there been a proper system of canals” Despite six decades of irrigation less than 50 percent (or 66 million hectares of India’s net-cultivated area of 140 million hectares) as irrigated according to the 2015-16 State of Agriculture report Groundwater provides water for two-thirds of India’s irrigated land but those levels are falling from overuse From the first five year plan (1951-56) to the eleventh (2006 to 2011) the central government has spent a total of Rs 351 lakh crore as we said on major irrigation and flood control projects characterised by time and cost overruns shows this 12th Five Year Plan (2012-2017) report On July 1 2015 Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Pradhan Mantri Krishi Sinchayee Yojana (PMKSY)–or the Prime Minister’s Farmer’s Irrigation Programme–with a budget of Rs 50000 crores over five years (2015-16 to 2019) The motto of the PMKSY is "Har Khet Ko Pani (water to every field)” and “More crop per drop” In 2015-16 less than a third (Rs 312 crore) of Rs 1000 crores set aside for micro-irrigation was released reveals this government report Of this upto April 2016 no more than Rs 483 crore or less than fivepercent was actually spent according this micro-irrigation financial progress monitoring report The government set Rs 1763 as the 2016-17 micro-irrigation target but no data on results have been released The micro-irrigation programme covers an area of 651220 hectares or 046percent of net cultivated area The two-day BJP national executive meet in
