Anyone wandering by the Radcliffe Gymnasium on Wednesday (Feb. 17) would have wondered at the sounds emanating from the vaulted hall, and likely stopped to investigate. There they would have found a young woman with a microphone in each hand performing a curious and captivating symphony of sound and song.Erin E. Gee’s compositions are as whimsical as they are hard to define.Gee, a trained pianist and composer, grew unhappy with her works for voice and changed direction with her vocal compositions in the late 1990s, eliminating any comprehensible words in her text. She decided instead to rely on the International Phonetic Alphabet to structure the vocal sounds in her work, which range from buzzes and whirs to whistles and pops, all created with the human voice. The textual elements are arranged with a melodic line for a “vocalist,” and often include a line for instruments that frequently mimic the voice’s sounds.Gee discussed the genesis of her Mouthpiece series, a group of 19 works for solo voice and ensemble, during a lecture and mini-performance. While at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Gee, the 2009-10 Rieman and Baketel Fellow for Music, is working on “‘SU-O’ for Voices and Orchestra,” an extension of her Mouthpiece compositions.Her first Mouthpiece work was based on a text from the Rigveda, a collection of Vedic Sanskrit hymns. The musician, who currently lives in Graz, Austria, explained that her aim was to transform the text to something unrecognizable.“I tried to keep the structure of the order of the sounds of the text the same, but I changed them past intelligibility so they become something else,” said Gee of her work “Mouthpiece I” from 1999.For the composer, the ultimate goal is to create pieces that remove the element of the ego-based performance and the “heightened emotion” and “strong attachment to the meaning of the words” that is often found in vocal literature. Instead, Gee said she aims in her work to “move away from the vocal performer as a person … and “move as much as possible toward instrumental use of the voice.”“It just seemed natural on some level to move toward sound.”Gee later drew inspiration from traditional Japanese vocal styles as a guest artist in 2005 at the Akiyoshidai International Art Village in Japan. Other inspirations for her compositions include the scat singing of jazz great Ella Fitzgerald, tongue twisters, and a Pygmy tribe from the African rainforest.While her work may be hard to define or describe, the crowd didn’t find it hard to enjoy. Many attendees were smiling during Gee’s brief performances. Audience members peppered the composer with questions following her talk, calling her compositions “beautiful” and “fantastic.”One critic compared the experience of listening to Gee’s works to a ride on the back of a beautiful butterfly, said Judith Vichniac, the institute’s associate dean of the fellowship program, and to “learning a whole new language, one that, simply by hearing, not even understanding, elevates your being.”
In addition to minimizing the impact on Rio’s traffic, convoys will provide security. “As soon as the escort arrives, the person who is being transported requires protection,” Lt. Col. Sérgio Ramos explained. “Stopping the motorcade along the route or in a dangerous neighborhood means exposing the official to an attack or an activity that could cause injury. If suddenly someone with criminal intent or someone seeking to disturb the peace […] gets out of a car and pulls out a gun and opens fire on the motorcade, the escort rider will need to intervene. So the course has a shooting techniques element in addition to motorcycle riding.” The Armed Forces are preparing the strategy in cooperation with the Ministry of Justice’s Extraordinary Department for Large Events. The plan focuses on providing comfort, flexibility, and protection for foreign delegations, especially the nearly 170 heads of state who have confirmed they will attend the world’s largest sporting event. The Armed Forces will deploy a Platoon of 160 convoy motorcyclists, whose mission is to escort the motorcades. An escort’s work requires a good deal of skill and concentration, according to Lt. Col. Sérgio Ramos. “The escort rider is three people rolled into one. He is a skilled motorcyclist, a responsible traffic officer, and a security agent on the lookout for any suspicious movement along the road from the point of origin to the motorcade’s destination.” The security and safety of international delegations traveling through the streets of Rio de Janeiro is one of the main concerns for the organizers of the 2016 Olympic Games. To ensure that traffic through the region moves safely and efficiently, the Brazilian Armed Forces will provide Military escorts to Olympics delegations and heads of state, and officials are working to minimize the disruption to the civilian population. “Olympic lanes” – traffic lanes that will be marked for the exclusive use of motorcades – are currently being created. The goal is to route the delegations through these express routes: Linha Vermelha (Red Line), Linha Amarela (Yellow Line), and Avenida Brasil. “We do not want the whole city of Rio to come to a halt,” Lt. Col. Sérgio Ramos stated. “Imagine escorting 108 motorcades in just one day. We are thinking about providing an escort to one point, where [all escorted] authorities would [then] board a bus, which will transport all of them [to the Olympic venues], to avoid disturbances in urban commutes. This is [still] under negotiation.” The 1ºBG is currently in process of forming new escort teams. Lt. Col. Sérgio Ramos has trained two classes, consisting of 30 total new escorts, already this year. “The failure rate is high, around 40 percent, because the course is very technically demanding,” he said. By Dialogo March 22, 2016 Rio, the Olympics’ main host city and Brazil’s second-largest metropolis, has 6.5 million residents and 2.9 million vehicles, and its normally frenetic rhythm will not relax during the competition. The only difference is that public schools will be closed, as the local prefecture has declared a holiday during the Games. “It is a lot to do in a short period of time but we are ready for it,” he said. The Military will deploy 70 riders as escorts from the 1º BG, 40 from the Army Police Battalion, 16 from the Presidential Guard Battalion in Brasília, and others from the Southern Military Command in Porto Alegre, the Air Force Police, and the Marine Corps’ Independent Police Company. “We are in discussions with public traffic entities to prevent disturbances as much as possible,” said Lieutenant Colonel Sérgio Moraes Ramos Carneiro, Commanding Officer of the Army 1st Guard Battalion (1ºBG), which will coordinate the escorts during the Olympics. Each escort will be carry 10 kilograms of equipment, including a fireproof leather jacket, a helmet, gloves, knee-high boots, elbow pads, and a back brace. “Safety equipment is the top priority because we can buy another motorcycle but not another motorcyclist,” Lt. Col. Sérgio Ramos said. Perfect I like it It seems Logical to me. Highly trained escorts Most of the travel that requires escorts will be conducted on August 5th, the day of the Olympics’ opening ceremony. “We have 108 heads of states, referred to as VVIP (Very Very Important Person) who arrive that day,” Lt. Col. Sérgio Ramos stated. About 70 motorcades are scheduled for August 21st, the day of the closing ceremonies. Escorts must have expert driving skills, motor coordination, physical vigor, intelligence, courage, and the ability to brake at a high speeds without fishtailing and make quick decisions, he stated. “A rider goes from zero to 100 kilometers per hour in six seconds. The motorcycles can reach 150 km/h, and the motorcyclist must determine from a distance which road he will need to block. He will stop, get off the motorcycle, and stop traffic. All of this must be done quickly, without compromising the security of the official or the motorcade, and without causing an accident. This requires extremely focused attention.” Minimizing disruption
At least eight people were killed in two shootings late Wednesday near the German city of Frankfurt, with an unknown number of attackers still at large, police said.The shootings targeted shisha bars in Hanau, about 20 kilometres (12 miles) from Frankfurt, according to local media, and police launched a huge manhunt in the town of around 90,000 people.The first attack occurred at a bar in the centre of the city around 10pm (2100 GMT), police and reports said. Witnesses reported hearing a dozen shots, local media said. The attacker, or attackers, then fled the scene by car, according to police. There was then a second shooting.According to local media reports, three people were killed in front of the first bar and five in front of the second.Germany has been targeted in recent years by several extremist attacks, one of which killed 12 people in the heart of Berlin in December 2016.

Di Canio, who accepts he is viewed in some quarters as “the mad Italian”, said he is ready to give any lazy players a “kick up the bottom” and claimed the sceptics will soon be cheering his name to the Stadium of Light’s rafters. He also insisted he can weather the storm blown up by Labour MP David Miliband quitting as club vice-chairman over the 44-year-old’s past statements professing to be a “fascist but not a racist”. Press Association New Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio has warned the players will have to fit in with his disciplined approach to training to avoid becoming “a team of anarchists”. Sunderland are a point off the relegation zone and the new manager admitted his first training session came as a shock to some players, stressing the need for discipline. Di Canio, who previously achieved success as manager of Swindon, said: “You have to know how to manage your players. “It is obvious you have different egos in the Premier League, but you have to have strict rules, discipline, and work hard on the field during the week otherwise the product you deliver on Saturday is not good. “That won’t change. It’s not just Paolo Di Canio’s opinion, all managers around the world think the same. If everybody interprets the game wrong because they do not train properly during the week or because there is no discipline you have an anarchists’ team, and if there is anarchy maybe the players try to do the right thing but doesn’t work in the way it should. “Especially the new generation, not because they are bad guys but they are young and full of technology, they go round the town and if you don’t make them concentrate during training sessions you don’t help them to be focused. “I am not saying it happened here, I have to be clear. I don’t know what happened here but with the players we have got I can’t imagine how we are one point from relegation zone. Yesterday was the first training session and it was a shock for them. “But they showed fantastic commitment and we are going to change a bit our philosophy in the way we approach our training sessions, because if you do not prepare yourself the best in your training session you can’t do a good job in a Saturday or Sunday game. “We have a very good foundation with five or six players with fantastic talent and a group of young players who are full of enthusiasm to prove their quality. We can now light the fire and let them play together with energy and quality.”
Stoke manager Tony Pulis is set to leave the club after almost seven years in charge, according to a Stoke Sentinel report. The 55-year-old’s future has been the subject of speculation for a few weeks after a disappointing end to the season. Pulis had a meeting with chairman Peter Coates on Tuesday morning at which it appears a decision was taken to make a change. Pulis, who after the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes’ promotion to the Manchester United job is the second-longest serving manager in the country, would leave Stoke in a far better position than he found them. Within two years of taking over for his second spell in charge he won promotion to the Premier League, where they have never finished below 14th. He also led them to their first FA Cup final and consequently into the Europa League. However, a poor run in the second half of this season – during which the Potters won just three of their last 19 league matches and briefly raised relegation fears – saw them finish with their lowest Premier League points tally. Also Pulis’ style of football has often criticised for being over-physical and relying too heavily on the ‘long ball’. Press Association

New Delhi: Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team have created history in the Ranchi Test by winning the final match by an innings and 202 runs to inflict a 3-0 whitewash on South Africa. This was the first time India had inflicted a 3-0 whitewash of South Africa and this was the first time since 1935 that the Proteas had suffered back-to-back innings defeats in a three-Test series. This was their joint-third heaviest defeat in Tests in terms of innings. India have inflicted a Test whitewash now for the sixth time. With this instance, here are five other instances when India have achieved a whitewash in a three-Test series or more.England ‘Brownwashed’ For First Time 1992/93This was the first time that India had ever whitewashed an opponent in Tests. India won the first Test in Eden Gardens by eight wickets thanks to Mohammad Azharuddin’s 182. In the Chennai Test, Sachin Tendulkar scored his first century in India as they secured an innings victory. The whitewash was complete when Vinod Kambli scored a double century in Mumbai and India won by an innings and 15 runs. Anil Kumble, Venkatapathy Raji and Rajesh Chauhan took 46 off the 60 wickets, with Kumble finishing with 21 wickets.Sri Lanka Hammered In 1994 TourSri Lanka had put up some solid performances against India in Tests ever since their debut in 1982. Their first Test series win came against India in 1985. However, in the 1994 tour of India, they were comprehensively outplayed. Navjot Singh Sidhu’s record eight sixes in his knock of 124 and Sachin Tendulkar’s 142 had demoralised Sri Lanka. When Kumble took 11 wickets in the match, including 7/59, Sri Lanka were routed by an innings in the Lucknow Test. Azharuddin’s century in the Bengaluru Test, combined with an efficient performance from the bowlers, gave India yet another innings win. In Ahmedabad, Kapil Dev went past Sir Richard Hadlee’s tally of most wickets and yet another century from Azhar meant India had whitewashed Sri Lanka and all Tests were victories by a margin of an innings. Australia Decimated By MS Dhoni’s India In 2013Australia had whitewashed India 4-0 in their tour Down Under in 2011 and now it was India’s turn to hit back hard. MS Dhoni’s record-breaking 224 laid the foundation for a famous win in Chennai. Cheteshwar Pujara’s 204 and Murali Vijay’s 167, backed by R Ashwin’s 5/63 gave India a big win in Vizag. In Mohali, a tour-de-force performance on debut from Shikhar Dhawan gave India a tense five-wicket win despite one whole day being abandoned due to rain. In Delhi, India inflicted a 4-0 whitewash for the first time with a big victory thanks to Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. In that series, it was the beginning of the Ashwin-Jadeja spin duo that would wreck opponents at home.New Zealand Feel The Heat In 2016New Zealand were undone by the exploits by Ashwin and Jadeja in the Kanpur Test while in Kolkata, Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s five wicket haul and solid contributions from Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and Rohit Sharma gave India a resounding win. In Indore, a 365-run stand between Virat Kohli and Rahane deflated New Zealand. Kohli smashed 211 and Rahane 188 but it was Ashwin who ran through the New Zealand batting with 13 wickets in the match. Sri Lanka Destroyed At Home In 2017Dhawan set the ball rolling with a rollicking 190 and he was given great support by Pujara. Kohli also chipped in with a century in the second innings as India got their tour off to a great start with a 304-run win in Galle. In the second innings, Pujara and Rahane scored centuries but Sri Lanka could not cope with Ashwin and Jadeja. Although Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis scored centuries, Sri Lanka still went down by an innings.Also Read | India Trounce South Africa To Achieve Historic 3-0 WhitewashThe whitewash was complete at Pallekele when Hardik Pandya and Dhawan slammed centuries and India won by an innings. This was the first time India had achieved a 3-0 whitewash overseas. For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.
