Ziggy rebels with a cause

first_img Sharing is caring! 107 Views   no discussions EntertainmentNewsRegional Ziggy rebels with a cause by: – May 30, 2018 Share Tweetcenter_img Share Share (Jamaica Observer) Ziggy Marley says he is revolting for the love of humanity on his latest album, Rebellion Rises.The 10-track set debuted at number one on the Billboard Reggae Album Chart yesterday.“I feel like if we focus on what we are here for instead of what we are against, we are more likely to achieve it,” the eight-time Grammy Award winner told the Jamaica Observer yesterday.“It’s a more positive outlook on what I am calling a rebellion, to bring out the love in humanity. The ‘against’ will take care of itself; we are focusing on what we are here for and looking to achieve,” he continued.Rebellion Rises is the seventh studio album for the son of reggae legend Bob Marley. The self-produced set was released on May 18 by Tuff Gong Worldwide.The first track, See Dem Fake Leaders, describes chaos and destruction caused by leaders with malevolent intentions. Marley said it was partially influenced by United States President Donald Trump.“It has an influence on it. The influence comes from where we are now, but it’s not like there weren’t fake leaders in the past years,” he said. “When you look at Africa in the past years, there have been leaders who allow the natural resources to go to waste. It’s just that current situations make me want to speak out on it now.”Other songs include Your Pain Is Mine; Circle of Peace featuring Stephen Marley; and The Storm is Over, which marks the debut of his 11-year-old son Gideon Marley.“I was recording the album at my house and the kids were playing around and they like the music. One day I asked him if he wants to sing on the record and he said yes. It took us a while to get it done; we spent weeks where he did it over and over again because I want him to realise it’s no joking thing,” said Marley.“I am doing what my father was doing with me, in that I am using his example but I am more hands-on, more verbal and more interactive,” he added.In 2016 Marley received a Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album for Ziggy Marley. But he said he has his eyes set beyond another Grammy for Rebellion Rises.“Dem music yah bigger than Grammy — that is never and has never been the objective or the goal. It’s not about the Grammys, other people watch that — I am focusing on spreading the message across humanity,” he said.Ziggy Marley’s tour commences next week and will run until September across the United States, Europe and Asia.Marley, who could not recall when last he was in Jamaica, said there is no specific reason for the lack of promotion in his homeland.He, however, said his campaign for peace and unity will continue after the tour.“Every generation has had a messenger with the same message we are giving. Really it’s something that will continue until love outweighs hate in humanity, so we’ll be doing this as long as necessary. Right now it is important, as bad as we see things are, it’s important in our awakening…nuh matter how you see the fake leaders a gwaan, music plays a part in that awakening.”last_img read more

No. 17 UWF Finishes Fifth After Reversal of Second Round Decision

first_img BADIN, N.C. – After an initial ruling on Tuesday citing a USGA rules infraction, the second and final round of the Lady Falcon / McNairy Invitational will count after a review of United States Golf Association rule 33-2B/1.  The No. 17 West Florida women’s golf team finished in fifth place after taking into account the second round scores.After the round began on Tuesday, the tee boxes on the fifth, eighth, and 11th holes were moved causing inconsistencies between different groups and teams, and it was initially determined that the round would be cancelled due to the differences in distance. Because there was no significant advantage or disadvantage as indicated by the scores after the round ended, Rule 33-2B/1 indicates that all scores are allowed to be counted. The Lady Argos shot 311 for the day, improving by 14 strokes from the first round and allowing them to overtake University of South Carolina-Beaufort and host team Pfeiffer to finish fifth for the tournament at 636. Carson-Newman took home the trophy with a two-day total of 622, with first day leader Catawba finishing just three strokes back at 625.Each of the Argonauts improved from the first day to the second, with junior Bhavna Shetty (Mysore, India/Sadvidya HS) leading the way, carding a 75 for the second round and finishing tied for eighth at 154. The junior was only three over for par-4’s the entire tournament, second only to the two individuals that were medalist and runner-up. Senior Natalia Espinosa (Bogotá, Colombia/Colegio Nueva Granada) also played strong the second day firing a four over 76, highlighted by an eagle on the par-4 12th hole and placing in a tie for 10th.  Espinosa finished just one over for par-5’s.Senior Rachel Williams (Daytona Beach, Fla./Kennesaw State) improved by six strokes to shoot a 78 and jumped up the leader board 15 spots to finish in a tie for 21st. Freshman Agustina Cocha (Salta, Argentina/Colegio Santa Maria) shot two strokes better to finish with an 82 and in a tie for 32nd, while freshman Danielle Vannoy (Pensacola, Fla./ Northwest Florida State) also improved by eight strokes to shoot 96 and place 64th. The Argonauts will return to the golf course at home this weekend when they host the Bubba Watson Invitational at Stonebrook Golf Club September 21-22.  For information on all UWF Athletics, visit www.GoArgos.com. #ARGOS#DAY TWO RESULTS1    Carson Newman Coll       315  307    622       +46 2    Catawba College          310  315    625       +49 3    California Univ – PA     324  305    629       +53 4    Newberry College         321  311    632       +56 5    West Florida, U of       325  311    636       +60 6    So.Carolina Beaufort     313  333    646       +70 7    Pfeiffer University      324  328    652       +76 8    Wingate University       328  326    654       +78 9    Lee University           339  332    671       +95 10   Berry College            340  350    690      +114 11   Columbus State           343  359    702      +126 12   Concord University       389  360    749      +173 13   Mount Olive College      375  380    755      +179 14   King College             391  380    771      +195 T8   Bhavna Shetty             79   75    154T10  Natalia Espinosa          79   76    155T21  Rachel Williams           84   78    162T32  Agustina Cocha            83   82    16564   Danielle Vannoy          104   96    200Print Friendly Version Share No. 17 UWF Finishes Fifth After Reversal of Second Round Decisioncenter_img Bhavna Shetty (Photo by UWF Women’s Golf) last_img read more

College football: Tech to face ULM Nov. 21 at Independence Stadium

first_img“However, in a year where there may be restrictions on stadium capacities, we felt it wasn’t fair to either program to be the home team. Therefore when I reached out to Scott McDonald and proposed the idea of playing in Shreveport, he agreed it was the best scenario. It gives us the best chance at a larger crowd even if there are seating restrictions.” On a day where both Football Bowl Subdivision programs opened official fall workouts, the big news came off the field. This will be the first meeting between the Bulldogs and the Warhawks on the gridiron since a 42-19 win by Tech at ULM in 2000. Louisiana Tech, winners of six straight bowl games – the longest such streak in the country – leads the all-time series against ULM 30-13, including eight straight victories.

This is a one game contract and a game time will be released at a later date. “When we lost our game against Vanderbilt, it obviously created a hole in our schedule,” said McClelland. “As we looked to when and where it was appropriate to add a game, we felt we needed to fill that date on the schedule. ULM was in the same situation with the same available date.center_img Both programs had openings on Nov. 21 following the SEC’s decision to go to a league-only schedule. Tech was slated to travel to Vanderbilt while ULM was scheduled to play at Arkansas, but both contests were cancelled by those SEC schools. Malcom Butler, Louisiana Tech Associate Athletic Director/Communications  Louisiana Tech Director of Athletics Tommy McClelland announced today that the Bulldogs will play host to UL-Monroe at Independence Stadium on Saturday, Nov. 21 McClelland said that LA Tech will be designated home team and C-USA owns the TV rights to the game. However, the two Universities will split the seating in the stadium 50-50. Each school will receive the revenue it generates from ticket sales through their respective ticket offices. All expenses will be split between the two sides. The series started in 1953 with a 61-6 win by the Bulldogs.last_img read more
