Julia Wolfe, a composer associated with the new-music collective Bang on a Can was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for music for Anthracite Fields. The Pulitzer jury described the piece as “a powerful oratorio for chorus and sextet evoking Pennsylvania coal-mining life around the turn of the 20th century.” The hour-long work was commissioned by the Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia, which gave the world première, along with the Bang on a Can All-Stars, April 26, 2014 in Philadelphia.

The recording of Anthracite Fields is planned to be released in September.

Dart-Throwing Chimp

A suburban house. A desk cluttered with papers, headphones, stray cables, and a pair of socks. Dawn.

Jay, sitting at the desk, opens a browser tab and clicks on a favorited site to see if a data set he needs to produce forecasts has been updated yet. It has not. He pauses, slurps coffee from a large mug, and tries another site. As before.

JAY: (giving up again). Nothing to be done.

FAST AND FURIOUS 7 —

FAST AND FURIOUS 7

  • Vin Diesel has stated that Fast & Furious 7 will be the start of a new trilogy. Possibly, this may lead to Fast 8 and 9? [18]
  • On 11th September 2013, it was announced that Fast 8 was currently planned and is in the works. It was also revealed actor Kurt Russell, who is expected to play a father figure to Dom, may not appear in Fast Seven but make his debut in Fast 8.[19]However, Russell stated himself that he wa shooting scenes for Fast Seven. It was later confirmed that he would continue his role in Fast and Furious 8.[20]
  • Diesel stated they have planned the structure of the story from Fast 7 through to Fast 9 wether they have been signed on or not. He also stated with a new director, it is the chance for the franchise to head into a new direction.[21]
  • After actor Paul Walker died, possibilities left numerous thinking wether the franchise could continue. It was predicted the franchise would continue without Walker – by either killing him off or a re-cast, which was unlikely in this case.[22]
  • Diesel, Rodriguez, Brewster, Gibson and Bridges are considered ‘regulars’ and will return in upcoming films. Walker’s character Brian will NOT be killed off but will instead retire and exit the franchise[23]. Lucas Black has been confirmed to return to Fast 7, 8 and 9. Dwayne Johnson character Hobbs has been rumoured to being killed off, following his tweet[24]. Kurt Russell will appear in Fast 8 while Pataky, Kelly and Wow are left unknown wether they appear later in the franchise.
  • Walker’s brothers, Cody and Caleb Walker could replace Walker in upcoming films.
  • Universal is rumoured to bring former director Justin Lin, back in the franchise to direct the final films. Universal chairman Donna Langley states she thinks there will be “at least three more” films. The franchise could also continue without Brian O’ Conner, yet there is no guarantee or confirmation to wether the will be three films.[25]

Trivia

  • The movie was originally due to release on July 11, 2014.[27] It was delayed however, following the death of Paul Walker (30th November 2013) to April 10th 2015. It was later pushed forward a week to April 3rd, 2015[28].
  • This film will be dedicated to the memory of Paul Walker.
  • Filming began in September. [29]
  • Locations such as Tokyo and the Middle East will take place in this film,[30] But also back to their original hometown, Los Angeles.[31]
    • On July 15, 2013, it was revealed that shooting will take place in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.[32] Additional casting for smaller speaking roles will take place in the shooting locations of Georgia and Louisiana in the US[33]
    • Egypt was supposedly another location in the film, however due to conflicts, violence and war in the country, they decided to scrap the orginal plan and choose another place instead.[34]
  • James Wan has replaced former director Justin Lin, taking over the Fast & Furious franchise.
  • Denzel Washington was offered a role at one point, but rejected the desicion. His role would have included a very small, cameo appearance in the seveth film and expand much more in the next film. This is very similar to the introduction of Jason Statham who will play Ian Shaw.[35]
  • Lucas Black will be reprising his role as Sean Boswell. It is reported that he will be a ‘regular’ to the series, and will star in not only Fast 8 but also Fast 9. He is signed for all three films.[36]
  • Singer Iggy Azalea will have a cameo. Coincedentally, Rita Ora, who was featured on Azalea’s track, Black Widow, had a cameo in the previous film.
  • Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone was featured in the film at one point but this was scrapped due her conflicting schedules with Ram Leela.
  • Similar to how Justin Lin connected Han’s backstory with Better Luck Tomorrow, James Wan will connect his film Death Sentence, which will have a major influence on the film. Kevin Bacon, who starred in Death Sentence, could also make a cameo.
  • Ludacris stated Paul Walker had completed atleast “80% of the film”. After they had a few months to process the mourning, they knew the had to continue – in order to dediacte Walker’s legacy and what he had wanted. It is what bonded them ven closer and carry on the legacy in order to devote and honour Walker’s greatest legacy and his unforgettable role of Brian O’Conner.[37]

  • I think this scene has a similar type from James Bond 007: Skyfall were Deckard Shaw broke in into Hobb’s computer and download all the files of the street racers in order to target them to get revenge on Torotto and his crew ,later to blow up Torotto’s house with a bomb like Raoul Silva orders Patrice to steal the hard drive from Ronson’s computer to kill all the MI6 agents and blow up the SIS building in order to get revenge on M.

PEER PRESSURE>OVERCOMED. — April 18, 2015

PEER PRESSURE>OVERCOMED.

Peer pressure is a factor that not only affects children and teenagers but also adults.Some people are easily lured into unhealthy lifestyle and situations just because their buddies are in it.As a person, one has to lead a personal life which is controlled by oneself.There are a number of ways of excluding this mess as below>>>
1.LEARN TO SAY NO- Always say no like you mean it. Never say Yes just because your gang is for it.
2.BE REPETITIVE- Never hesitate to state your position again and again.
3.BE AWAY FROM PRESSURE ZONES- Try as much as you can to be away from pressure zones as far as possible.
4.AVOID STRESSFUL SITUATIONS- pressure situations contribute majorly for an individual to be lured into harm.Because during pressure moments an individual isn’t thinking straight.
5.CONFRONT THE LEADER OF THE PACK- When only two with the gang leader.Pose hard questions on the leader such as,The importance of the habits and benefits of the employed character.
6.CONSIDERE THE CONSEQUENCES OF GIVING IN-Always ask yourself about the after-consequences of the peer habbit and behaviour.What would be the side effects? Would i die? What would my parents say?
7.LOOK FOR POSITIVE ROLE MODELS- find suitable role models whose character are far beyond the ones employed by the peer.
8.SEEK SUPPORT- A counsellor would be your suitable friend who would coach you how to get away from the peer and how to live life after getting away from the peer.
9.SPEAK OUT-Fight the pressure by taking the side of the underdog.
10.FIND NEW FRIENDS- try to find a new pack who don’t buy the characters of the previous peer group.
ALWAYS NEVER BUY THE PHRASE THAT EVERYONE DOES IT BECAUSE THE TRUTH IS NOT EVERYONE DOES THAT #NiceTime
