Pitbull & Self-Help Guru Tony Robbins Are Going On Tour In 2019

first_imgIn a Billboard exclusive, yesterday, the global pop icon Pitbull announced that he’ll be embarking on a motivational tour in 2019. During his question-and-answer session at the Billboard Latin Music Conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday, he also shared the news that the iconic self-help guru Tony Robbins will be joining him for this new endeavor.Pitbull’s mother was a big fan of Robbins, so growing up, the life coach was a household name. As Pitbull became a famed recording artist, he eventually met Robbins and the two became friends. The two have a public history dating back to at least 2016, when Robbins spoke during the ceremony honoring the artist he received the 2,584th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.Robbins has clearly affected Pitbull’s outlook on the music industry, with the rapper offering thoughts on how motivation plays a role in the release of his new music. As noted in the Billboard article, Pitbull noted that his new single, “The Roof Is On Fire”, will not be released on Spotify, hoping that this back-to-basics, pre-Internet approach will motivate fans to seek out and find the track independently. “I even told [my] team not to register it,” he added, solidifying his independent approach to music releases.During his chat, Pitbull noted that “I’m just being a revolutionary to wake everybody else.” Outside of the music industry, the Miami-born rapper opened a public Florida charter school in 2013 called the Sports Leadership And Management Academy (SLAM), that focuses on drawing in students who love sports but find school boring.As for Pitbull’s motivational tour with Tony Robbins, there are still relatively few details outside the fact that they’re planning to embark on the new joint project in 2019.[H/T Billboard]last_img read more

Jon Batiste Channels Prince For Hilarious Musical “Recap” Of ‘Game Of Thrones’ On ‘Colbert’ [Watch]

first_imgJon Batiste, the leader of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert house band Stay Human, has never seen a single episode of Game of Thrones. However, with all the buzz surrounding the HBO juggernaut’s series finale on Sunday, Batiste felt it was his duty to help viewers refresh their memories about all that’s happened on the show throughout the years.Related: Game Of Thrones Live Concert Experience Announces 2019 Fall Tour Dates“There’s a lot to keep track of in this series…You gotta keep it all in your head before this Sunday’s show” Colbert mused while introducing the song. “That’s why our very own Jon Batiste over there put together a song to catch you up on everything that’s happened so far.”“You, I understand, are a big fan?” Colbert asked Batiste. “No,” Jon responded with a mischievous smile. “Never seen a single episode.”“Well then how did you write a song recapping the entire series?” asked Colbert. “Well, I’ve seen plenty of memes online,” Batiste responded, “So, I just put it together like that, you know?… But I think I nailed it.”Nail it, he did. For his Game of Thrones recap, Batiste channeled Purple Rain-era Prince (in both sound and style) for a comical retelling of the Medieval fantasy saga.The results are just as irreverent and satisfying as you’d expect. Of course, Jon Batiste gets all the details wrong—yes, those are Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Pete’s Dragon clips thrown in there—but he does it with charismatic flair and spot-on 80s nostalgia that might help you forget how annoyed you are with how the final season has played out.Take a few minutes and watch Jon Batiste (as Prince) joyously butcher the plot of Game of Thrones with the catchiest song you’ll hear today.Jon Batiste’s ‘Game Of Thrones’ Song[Video: The Late Show with Stephen Colbert]You can tune in to the series finale of Game of Thrones this Sunday night at 9 p.m. Eastern on HBO.last_img read more

Field Day

first_imgCotton and peanut farmers and industry personnel are invited to the University of Georgia Cotton and Peanut Research Field Day on Wednesday, Sept. 4, on the UGA Tifton campus.Members of the UGA cotton and peanut teams will talk about ongoing research at two UGA research farms, providing insight for growers on what they can expect for the next growing season.The field day will start at 8 a.m. at the UGA Lang Farm at 276 Rigdon Aultman Road in Tifton, Georgia. Field day attendees will also visit the UGA Gibbs Farm at 226 William Gibbs Road in Tifton, Georgia, before returning to the UGA Tifton Campus Conference Center for lunch and a short program.The field day is a free event, but attendees are encouraged to RSVP to Jeannie Evans at 229-386-3006 or to provide an accurate count for lunch.UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences cotton and peanut specialists, including physiologists, plant pathologists, entomologists, agronomists, irrigation experts and plant breeders, conduct research aimed at improving Georgia’s top two row crops at UGA-Tifton. Cotton and peanuts account for nearly two-thirds of Georgia’s row crop production. The UGA specialists will present their latest research findings at the field day.“This field day gives us an opportunity to share with producers in the industry some of the newest research that we’re doing with cotton and peanuts. It allows us to get into a field setting and actually put our hands on certain things, see what’s happening and talk about it together,” said Jared Whitaker, UGA Cooperative Extension cotton agronomist.Georgia’s cotton farmers hope this year’s crop will rebound after being decimated by Hurricane Michael in early October 2018. According to estimates from UGA Extension agents and agricultural economists, there were between $550 million and $600 million in direct losses, along with an additional $74 million in agriculture sector losses.Georgia’s peanut crop fared better, suffering between $10 million and $20 million in direct losses.“The cotton and peanut research field day provides a perfect opportunity for growers to provide feedback on future research projects based on issues they are having on their farms,” UGA Extension peanut agronomist Scott Monfort said.For more information about cotton, see the Georgia Cotton News website.last_img read more

Summer Fun in the Waters of Bath County, Virginia

first_imgThe Jackson and Cowpasture Rivers run cold as they make their way through the mountains to converge with other tributaries leading to the Chesapeake Bay. They’re perfect spawning streams for native trout and smallmouth bass, which draw anglers from all over for some of the finest fly fishermen in Virginia. The Jackson and Cowpasture Rivers are top choices for paddlers. Area outfitters equip adventurers with kayaks, canoes, tubes and shuttle services. At Douthat State Park visitors can rent a funyak, Jon boat, paddleboat, hyrdobike, or paddleboard between Memorial Day and Labor Day. On the much larger Lake Moomaw, visitors can use the lake’s boat ramps to put in a bass boat, jet ski, or even sailboat and explore all 2530 acres and 43 miles of wooded shoreline. The fishing at Douthat State Park is similar to that of LakeMoomaw but could be considered more family friendly thanks to a designated kids’fishing area. Casters 12 and younger can fish for trout below the dam in WilsonCreek. Brook, Brown, and Rainbow varieties are stocked twice per week duringthe fee-based fishing season, making the odds of getting a bite swing in yourfavor. Don’t let the adventures of summer in the mountains pass you by. Plan your trip at to experience a place just far enough off the beaten path to feel like a world away. There’s no better time to be on and in the water than summertime, and the waters of Bath County offer all the splashing fun a family could want or all the solitude an angler or paddler might desire. Lake fishing can be rewarding with a wide array of both warmand cold water species thriving in Lake Moomaw, an impoundment created byGathright Dam and fed by the Jackson River. Fish two stories of habitats topull in the cold brook, brown, and rainbow trout or a variety of warm biterslike channel catfish, crappie, and largemouth bass. Only trout are stocked inLake Moomaw. Hit the beach in the mountains of western Virginia atDouthat State Park or Lake Moomaw. Less than 45 minutes from Hot Springs,they’re both great places to float and while away the day in the sun and on thesand. Access the beaches at Lake Moomaw within the Bolar Mountain RecreationArea where you can also enjoy camping and hiking. Be sure to pack a picnic andbring the camera.last_img read more

Bolivia Asks EU, UN for Anti-drug Helicopters, Radar

first_img Bolivia, the world’s third largest cocaine producer, will ask the European Union and United Nations to provide helicopters and radars to fight drug trafficking, President Evo Morales said on December 13. “We are going to make this request official soon,” he said. “I would see that not as cooperation, but as an obligation, to more effectively fight drug trafficking in Bolivia.” The Andean country, one of the poorest in South America, has an ageing fleet of 10 UH-1H Huey helicopters that it obtained from the United States in the 1980s and early 90s. “The drug traffickers, especially the international ones, are equipped with technology that is superior to what the government has,” Morales said. Bolivia has been eagerly seeking ways to boost and diversify foreign aid for its drug trafficking programs since expelling the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in 2008. Even so, Washington, D.C. still provided about $15 million to Bolivian anti-drug programs in 2011. The E.U. has allocated $53 million (40 million euros) in aid to Bolivia for 2012, mostly for social programs or to subsidize cultivation of alternative crops to cocaine. Brazil, the region’s heavyweight, signed a bilateral agreement with Bolivia this year that would make drones and helicopters available to the Andean country, the source of 80 to 90 percent of the cocaine circulating in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.

Peru Extends State of Emergency in Five Provinces Due to Shining Path

first_img The Peruvian government extended the state of emergency in five provinces in the northeast for 60 days due to the presence of the Shining Path and drug trafficking guerrilla fronts on January 3, the official state bulletin reported. The affected areas, which will remain under the control of the Police and the Armed Forces, are the provinces of Marañón, Huamalíes and Leoncio Prado, in the region of Huanuco; the province of Tocache, in the region of San Martín; and the province of Padre Abad, in the Ucayali region. In these areas, the state of emergency has been in place since September 2011, when the government of President Ollanta Humala had been in power for less than three months. According to the government, these areas are not only affected by remnant fronts of the Shining Path, but also have “problems with drug trafficking and illegal coca leaf plantations, which is the main source of employment for people in the area.” While a state of emergency is in force in Peru, the rights to freedom, inviolability of the home, and freedom to assemble, as well as free movement are suspended.
