In this exclusive excerpt from his new book Fire and Rain: The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, James Taylor, CSNY and the Lost Story of 1970 , Rolling Stone contributing editor David Browne details the much-anticipated U.K. debut of the band dubbed “the American Beatles .” On the night of January 6th, Paul McCartney settled into his seat at the Royal Albert Hall. Along with five thousand others in the elegantly domed theater with boxed seats, he was about to witness the London debut of the band everyone was calling the “American Beatles.” (One of them was actually English, but a catchy press moniker couldn’t be denied.) Thirteen months earlier, George Harrison had passed on signing them to Apple, but now they were stars on a headlining tour of Europe. In one sign of their stature, their massive sound system, complete with a lighting rig specially designed for them, had arrived in London from the States by boat. They were put up in the city’s five-star Dorchester Hotel—where … [Read more...] about Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young Enchant London Audience in 1970
Disney has debuted a suite of tools and offerings for advertisers designed to unify its linear networks and streaming platforms into a streamlined home for sponsored messages. At a tech showcase for media buyers, an online prelude to the traditional mid-May upfront, executives emphasized the versatility of Disney, especially since the company took full control of Hulu in 2019. At the time of that transaction, Hulu was generating more than $1 billion in ad revenue, with eMarketer estimating it will reach $2.7 billion this year as dollars continue to migrate to streaming. The new lineup includes Disney Select, a way for marketers to select desired audiences from the company’s portfolio based on buyer behavior, household characteristics and psychographics. Also new is the Disney Real-Time Ad Exchange, or DRAX, which centralizes premium video bidding solution. It gives parity to all deals, offering buyers new controls while helping them achieve scale. Disney also unveiled a … [Read more...] about Disney Tech Showcase Debuts Tools Bridging Streaming And Linear TV
DETROIT: Ford Motor Co announced plans on Thursday to shore up its finances amid the coronavirus pandemic, aiming to generate more cash by resuming production next month of its most profitable vehicles while saving money through further cost cuts. To generate cash, the No. 2 U.S. automaker was poised to restart production at some plants in North America as early as April 6, bringing back such profitable vehicles as its top-selling F-150 full-sized pickup, the Transit commercial van and SUVs. To conserve cash, Ford announced belt-tightening moves, including temporarily cutting top executives' salaries. This came a day after Standard & Poor's downgraded the Dearborn, Michigan-based company's debt to "junk" status and warned more downgrades could be necessary. "The actions we're taking now are wide-ranging and substantial," Chief Executive Jim Hackett told employees in an email early on Thursday. "We hope they will be enough to give Ford the financial flexibility to ride out … [Read more...] about Ford to restart US truck plants in April to beat pandemic-linked cash squeeze
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is facing twin scandals as a third woman accused him of sexual harassment on Monday and criticism continues of the state's underreporting of COVID-19 nursing home deaths. Calls for the Democrat's resignation have mounted in recent days and there's been renewed focus on Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, who would succeed Cuomo if he resigns or is removed from office. However, the impeachment process is a difficult one and in many ways it mirrors the impeachment of U.S. presidents. Former President Donald Trump 's acquittal by the Senate offers a taste of what a Cuomo impeachment might look like . "It is time to be brave, to hold him accountable, to investigate his cover-up of nursing home information. It is time to undo the bad policies that led to unnecessary deaths. And it is time to start the impeachment process," New York Assemblyman Ron Kim said in a Newsweek op-ed on February 22. The New York constitution, originally adopted in 1777, … [Read more...] about Can Andrew Cuomo Be Impeached?
