This Mashup Of Miles Davis And LCD Soundsystem Is Honestly Perfect

first_imgSometimes, two pieces of music were just meant to be one. That is the case for LCD Soundsystem’s “New York I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down” and Miles Davis’ soundtrack to the 1958 film, Ascenseur Pour l’Échafaud. One clever YouTube user mashed up the two tracks, amazingly combining the two pieces of music by simply playing them at the same time.With no editing tricks whatsoever, it’s remarkable how Davis’ improvised trumpet lines fit in with the brooding LCD Soundsystem ballad. It forces the listener to ask themselves, “gee, why doesn’t LCD Soundsystem have a trumpet player?” If James Murphy decides to add one for their performances next summer (they have one booked thusfar), you’ll know where he got the idea.Enjoy this beautiful Miles Davis and LCD Soundsystem mashup video below.last_img read more

Has Obamacare found its Bull Connor?

first_img Read Full Story Health care reform in the United States—“Obamacare”—continues to face a bumpy road, according to health policy expert John McDonough of Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH). Writing in his Boston Globe blog “Health Stew” on September 1, 2013, McDonough, professor of the practice of public health and director of the Center for Public Health Leadership, explored how one Southern official is doing everything he can to fight implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).Georgia insurance commissioner Ralph Hudgens has been bragging openly about trying to obstruct Obamacare, McDonough wrote. He compared the commissioner to Theophilus Eugene “Bull” Connor, the Birmingham, Alabama public safety commissioner who became notorious for ordering the use of fire hoses and police attack dogs against peaceful demonstrators during the civil rights era. The ACA, McDonough added, is a civil rights as well as a human rights issue, since 55% of all nonelderly uninsured Americans are nonwhite and stand to benefit disproportionately from the ACA’s coverage expansions.In his two prior blog posts, McDonough explored other health care reform issues. In his August 28 post, McDonough cited Kaiser Health Tracking Poll results showing that more than 4 out of every 10 Americans are unsure whether the ACA is still law. “Wow,” McDonough wrote. He also noted that while 42% have an unfavorable opinion about the law, 57% oppose cutting off funding for implementation.last_img read more

Black Lives Matter: A next chapter

first_imgFour years after Michael Brown was shot to death by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., young people of color are still dying. Still, as a panel discussion at the John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum noted on Monday, a movement has grown at the same time.With a new documentary shedding light on Brown’s life and the subsequent Black Lives Matter movement, the national focus has turned to basic human and Civil Rights issues broached by his death — and the killings of Trayvon Martin, Stephon Clark, Philando Castile, and others — that society is being called on to tackle.The Institute of Politics (IOP) panel discussion followed a screening of that documentary, “Stranger Fruit,” by filmmaker Jason Pollock. Pollock was joined by Benjamin Crump, attorney for the families of Brown, Martin, and Clark; Lezley McSpadden, Brown’s mother; and Jasmine Reed, attorney for the families of Brown and Martin.The discussion was moderated by Khalil Muhammad, professor of history, race, and public policy at the Kennedy School (HKS), and Ashley Spillane, Roy and Lila Ash Student Fellow, Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation, which co-sponsored the event with the HKS Black Student Union, HKS Arts and Culture Caucus, and the IOP’s Politics of Race and Ethnicity program.The documentary, explained Pollock, began when he moved to Ferguson after hearing what had happened to Brown. Coming from Los Angeles, he said, “I didn’t see anyone talking about the case of Mike Brown, and that felt like the most important thing.”Once he began to work on the film in 2013, its story deepened. “We wanted to show more of the context of what was happening in Ferguson,” said Pollack. “We talked a lot about the city of St. Louis,” where the so-called “race riots” of 1917 resulted in the deaths of more than 40 people of color, and possibly many more.“Our country was built on genocide and slavery,” he said.Reed said the film “did an incredible job of bringing you critical evidence of evidence that was concealed from the general public.”“We are hoping it will change the hearts of people,” said McSpadden.,Available on iTunes and video on demand on cable, “Stranger Fruit” will make its television debut on the Starz network on June 18. Pollock is also bringing it to various film festivals and is looking for a wider commercial release. A portion of the proceeds go to supporting Brown’s family.At the heart of Brown’s case, the panel agreed, is racism. Pollock’s film explores the history of this prejudice and points out the discrepancies in the evidence and treatment of this particular case.Crump stressed the importance of discerning the pattern in this treatment. To highlight the racism inherent in what he called all the “hashtags” since Brown, Crump pointed out the difference between these cases and the recent ones of the Parkland and Waffle House shooters, in which white suspects were apprehended alive.“White murderers are given more consideration than black unarmed men,” he said.To tackle these issues, Rand said the best way forward is a multidisciplinary approach.“We’re here because being an attorney is not enough,” Rand said. “That’s why we’re in the courtroom. That’s why Jason had to make his documentary. That’s why you’re here at the University.”Crump directed concerned citizens to the ballot box, noting that it is up to legal officials to get indictments in such cases. “We have to hold these people accountable,” he said.After McSpadden announced to applause that she was considering running for the Ferguson city council, she discussed her own goals of enlightening and giving comfort.“I’ll never get over what happened to my son,” she said. “If I can make a difference, if I can help another mother, and share with them this journey, I feel a little bit better inside.”last_img read more
