Three artists who performed at a country music fes

first_img Three artists who performed at a country music festival that became the site of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history honoured those music fans lost at deadly concert attacks with a tearful performance at the Grammy Awards.Country artists Eric Church, Maren Morris and Brothers Osborne delivered a moving performance of Eric Clapton’s Grammy-winning classic “Tears in Heaven,” during the 60th annual Grammys Awards in New York City on Sunday, the names of victims behind them.“All of country music was reminded in the most tragic way then connection we share with fans and the loving power that music will always provide,” said Eric Church who seemed to struggle to speak.The artists put their own spin on the mournful song in honour of the victims at the Route 91 Harvest Festival last October in Las Vegas, as well as a bombing outside an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, in May.“Tears in Heaven,” which won three Grammys in 1993 including record and song of the year, was written after Clapton’s four-year-old son died in 1991 after falling out of a high-rise window.The touching tribute was handled tenderly between singer TJ Osborne’s soulful baritone, Morris’ Texas twang and Church’s forceful singing, although a bad microphone made much of Morris’ intro before the song unintelligible.“The painful truth is that this year in just those two events 81 music lovers, just like us, went out to enjoy a night of music and never came back home,” Morris said.___For full coverage of awards season, visit: https://apnews.com/tag/AwardsSeason Country artists deliver tribute to concert attack victims by Kristin M.

Conference issues SOS for Nicosia green line

first_imgEverything which can be prepared to open up the buffer zone along Nicosia’s green line has been done, now it is up to the public to ensure it is going to happen, speakers at a bicommunal conference said on Wednesday.“It never ceases to be a shocking image,” UN secretary-general`s special representative in Cyprus Elizabeth Spehar, who is only too familiar with the buffer zone, said at the opening of the session at the Centre of Visual Arts and Research (CVAR) in Nicosia.Restoring the green line area, she added, should be appreciated well beyond technical repairs as the area is of great symbolic and geographic significance.The buildings along the green line, which has been largely abandoned since the 1960s and 70s, are now derelict. Many are now in ruins.Five years ago, the green line was included in Europa Nostra’s first annual list of the seven most endangered sites in Europe. The programme has so far selected 29 monuments in 19 countries which are in urgent need of restoration, thus drawing attention to the places that need it most.The Nicosia buffer zone is one of the bigger projects, as 265 buildings are involved.A bicommunal team has been working for years to prepare for its restoration, which becomes ever more urgent, since even in the five years after it was declared a heritage site much has deteriorated, said Androulla Vassiliou, vice president of Europa Nostra and moderator of the conference.“Without prompt coordinated action, the historical buildings in the buffer zone could become so ruined that they will not be able to be restored thus irrevocably destroying the heart of the city and its numerous heritage buildings,” the UN also warned in a recent report. Five years ago, the green line was included in Europa Nostra’s first annual list of the seven most endangered sites in EuropeThe objective is to help create conditions in the buffer zone to allow and encourage its eventual rehabilitation and use, being properly integrated into the adjacent urban areas.“The idea is not just to open another vertical checkpoint such as the one in Ledra street, but to create a horizontal space, that is to open Ermou street from the west to the east, thus bringing into existence what used to be in place before the 1960s in the area, a vibrant interaction and trade among Greek and Turkish Cypriots,” researcher and peace activist Ayla Gurel told participants at the seminar.Agni Petridou and Ali Guralp, heads of the Nicosia Master Plan, outlined what has been done in past years as part of the bicommunal plan for the capital. Due to their cooperation a group of enthusiastic Greek and Turkish Cypriots were able to carry out repairs in buildings in both the south and north, and took measures aimed at housing rehabilitation.As for the buffer zone, an info-box project was launched to raise awareness, and all the 265 buildings have now been measured, photographed, and it was determined which are the most difficult to fix, which need immediate attention if they are not to collapse, but also which ones are the ones deemed most valuable in terms of historical and social significance.“We have done a lot of work to prepare, but we are not able to get into the buffer zone,” Guralp explained. “We are waiting for the green light. Pressure will come from the public to do something about it.”“We are optimistic,” his Greek Cypriot counterpart Petridou added. “We prepared for years for the Ledra crossing to open, and then suddenly they gave us a week to open it.”You May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndoLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

Free and legal household waste spots for Limassol residents

first_imgFour ‘green points’ have been established in the Limassol district, where residents can unload bulky recyclable household waste for free, it was announced on Wednesday.The green points, located in the communities of Fasoula, Kolossi, Avdimou and Pareklisia, have been operational since September 28, said Mesa Geitonia mayor, Doros Antoniou.“A new step is being taken towards the rational management of household recyclable materials,” said Antoniou who is also board director of the integrated solid waste management facility in Limassol.The permitted categories of waste that can be unloaded at the green points are: debris, tiles, bulky waste such as furniture and mattresses, electrical waste and electronic equipment, tree prunings, plastic, paper, glass, aluminium, textiles, toys, x-rays, thermometers, medicines, lamps, cleaning materials, paints and glues, edible oils and fats, engine oils, vehicle batteries and common batteries.“The development of green points, along with the operation of the Pentakomos household waste treatment facility, will substantially contribute to the adoption of a sustainable national policy on solid waste management,” Antoniou said.The four green points are open every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at specific times according to each season, while a mobile green point is also in operation, which travels to the villages of the Limassol district on a regular basis to collect waste.The project has meant an increase in sewerage charges for Limassol residents, and Antoniou said that a reduction can only take place if households increase the amount of waste they recycle, therefore decreasing the volume of waste sent to the waste management facility.“We cannot continue unconsciously dumping our useless objects on sidewalks or in empty fields, expecting municipalities to pick them up,” Antoniou said, urging Limassol residents to take advantage of the green point as much as possible.You May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

Bank employees agree to retirement at 65

first_imgBy George PsyllidesBANK employees approved by majority vote yesterday a labour ministry mediation on collective agreements which includes extending the retirement age to 65.The workers’ district assemblies approved the deal with 85 per cent of the vote.The deal includes tiered pay and benefit cuts of up to 14 per cent, the extension of employees’ retirement age from 60 to 65 years, and a freeze of incremental salary rises and the cost of living allowance (CoLA) for three more years.An employee solidarity fund has also been created and will run for three years.The bank employees’ union ETYK said observation of the deal will ensure labour peace so that managements and workers “can focus on the joint effort of tackling the challenges, thus contributing to the faster recovery of banks and the economy of our country.”Negotiations broke down in January when both sides refused to concede any further ground, with the banks’ association asking for substantial cuts on salaries and benefits, citing the need to reduce operating costs in light of the crippling blow suffered by the local banking system in the past year.ETYK countered with a proposed extension of the retirement age to 65 and demanded that employers contribute to the solidarity fund.The bank association decided to declare the negotiations deadlocked and referred the dispute to the labour ministry’s mediation service to resolve.The new collective agreement will be in force retroactively from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2016.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementBad Digestion Slowing You Down?
