It will be a year since his passing on January 10th, 2016, though the legacy of David Bowie will live on forever. While the tributes have been going on for years, to celebrate the longstanding impression his timeless music has provided, this year has certainly been the year of Bowie. To memorialize the one year anniversary of his death, his closest collaborators will join forces for a tribute show on January 10th at Terminal 5 in New York City.This will be a show from the heart, featuring Mike Garson, Adrian Belew, Earl Slick, Gail Ann Dorsey, Sterling Campbell, and more for “a very special David Bowie concert with Bowie people playing Bowie music Bowie style.” The press release adds, “Individually these former Bowie band members performed, wrote and recorded together with David through several decades including the 1973’s Ziggy Stardust tour, the Diamond Dogs tour, Isolar II (Heroes) tour, to the hugely successful Serious Moonlight tour, the Sound And Vision greatest hits tour to Glastonbury 2000, Heathen, his final A Reality Tour and many of them appeared on Bowie’s triumphant comeback album, The Next Day.” Tickets go on-sale Friday, December 9th at 12PM local time.
NZ Herald 19 November 2014Like the pro-abortion lobby back in the day, the proponents of legalising euthanasia never give up.Within weeks of the election, Labour’s Palmerston North MP Iain Lees-Galloway has taken over responsibility for the End of Life Choice Bill after sponsor Maryan Street failed to get re-elected.He is gauging support in the new Parliament before deciding whether to put it back in the private members’ bill ballot.I bet he does. The bill would allow people aged 18 or over to be helped to die if they were proved mentally competent by two doctors, after consultation with family, and after a “stand-down” period of a week.I have written on this subject before, but it pays to remind ourselves of the murderous consequences of legalising suicide. And as one who has terminal cancer I reckon I have the right.I have no fear of death; I will go, I hope willingly, when the Lord calls my name.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/rotorua-daily-post/news/article.cfm?c_id=1503438&objectid=11358606
After a 4-1 week on the road, University of Wisconsin softball is coming back to Goodman Diamond this weekend to take on the University of Illinois. The series will be the first in an eight-game homestretch to end the Badgers’ season before the Big Ten tournament in May.The Badgers (23-17-1, 8-5-1 Big Ten) are trying to win key games to ensure a spot in the tournament. That makes these three games against Illinois (26-18, 5-9 Big Ten) crucial for Wisconsin, and any mistakes could have big consequences later on.Last time outThe Badgers are moving up after last week, which featured a win against rivals University of Minnesota Twin Cities and University of Iowa. With four wins on the weekend, the Badgers moved up six spots in the NCAA ranking, going from No. 73 to No. 67.There is no doubt that if the Badgers keep having weeks like this, they will find themselves ranked even higher nationally.Softball: Yvette Healy talks team’s impressive week on road, importance of seniorsThe University of Wisconsin women’s softball team is looking ahead to their last games of the season after having beat Read…Keys to SuccessAs the season comes to a close, it is key that the Badgers keep focusing on the game at hand. It is crucial that they continue to perform with the same high-caliber play they have been playing with in the last few weeks.As long as Wisconsin keeps its momentum going, and keeps errors down, they should find themselves victorious against a team like Illinois. All the Badgers need is a few more conference wins to secure their spot in the Big Ten tournament.Player to Watch: Annie FlemingIllinois’ number one batter for the season is Fleming, who is currently leading her team with a .352 batting average. Fleming, who is a designated player for Illinois, is going to be a challenge for Taylor-Paige Stewart and the Badger defense to keep points off the board.If the Badgers want to come out of this weekend with a win, they need to keep Fleming at bay. If they manage to do that, they will be saying “Bye Bye Bye” to Illinois come Sunday afternoon.
