As young entrepreneurs, Sophia Bush and Nia Batts, founders and owners of Detroit Blows, and Kwame Onwachi, author of A Young Black Chef, told their stories about being women and a person of color in the business world and how they are working towards equality in the field.

Claude Lévi-Strauss Biography

Academic, writer, figure of melancholy, aesthete – Claude Lévi-Strauss (1908-2009) not only transformed his academic discipline, he also profoundly changed the way that we view ourselves and the world around us.

In this award-winning biography, historian Emmanuelle Loyer recounts Lévi-Strauss’s childhood in an assimilated Jewish household, his promising student years as well as his first forays into political and intellectual movements. As a young professor in 1935 Lévi-Strauss left Paris for São Paulo to teach sociology. His rugged expeditions into the Brazilian hinterland, where he discovered the Amerindian Other, made him into an anthropologist. The racial laws of the Vichy regime would force him to leave France yet again — this time for the US in 1941, where he became Professor Claude L. Strauss, to avoid confusion with the jeans manufacturer.

His return to France, after the war, ushered in the period during which he produced his greatest works: several decades of intense labour in which Lévi-Strauss reinvented anthropology, establishing it as a discipline that offered a new view on the world. In 1955, Tristes Tropiques offered indisputable proof of this the world over. During those years, Lévi-Strauss became something of a national monument, a celebrity intellectual in France. But he always claimed his perspective was a “view from afar,” enabling him to deliver incisive and subversive diagnoses of our waning modernity.

Loyer’s outstanding biography tells the story of a true intellectual adventurer whose unforgettable voice invites us to rethink questions of the human and the meaning of progress. Lévi-Strauss was less of a modern than he was our own great and disquieted contemporary.

The Author

Emmanuelle Loyer is Professor of Contemporary History at Sciences-Po, Paris. Her biography of Lévi-Strauss was awarded the Prix Femina essai in 2015.

Reviews

“The inspiration that continues to spring forth from the work of Lévi-Strauss is a mystery to many anthropologists. He has told us of the many influences on his work and commentators have argued for yet others but they don’t really account for his extraordinary originality and independence. Emmanuelle Loyer’s thorough account of his life and work may help us resolve this wonderful puzzle.”  – Maurice Bloch, London School of Economics

“Emmanuelle Loyer has produced a meticulously-researched, intelligent, and sensitive biography worthy of her subject, one of the greatest Francophone intellectuals of the 20th century. Critical yet generous, her portrait of Claude Lévi-Strauss rings true and comes alive on the page.” – Michael Harkin, University of Wyoming

2nd Release of 2019 for the Grammy-nominated Songwriter

Stream Bad Mind on All Platforms HERE

Justin Love has today unveiled a new song, Bad Mind, a moody R&B track and his second release of 2019. Bad Mind revolves around Love’s sensual vocals, channeling his affection and reflective attitude with sweet melodies over the dark and hazy production. The single takes an intuitive approach to ‘Bad Minds’ discussing a past relationship, and the tumultuous state he’s experienced through their endeavors. Never one to bite his tongue when it comes to expressing his feelings on wax, Love creates a sensible composition that fully embraces his vulnerability.

“My love wasn’t enough, so she decided to search for love elsewhere. She rather the night life.” – remarks Justin Love about Bad Mind

Justin Love was born and raised in New Jersey; with Puerto Rican, Cuban and Chinese roots. Having picked up a local buzz in his hometown, where he honed his performance skills by singing to onlookers at his local mall, Love has developed a rabid following since his early busking days as an adolescent. Love has since earned a Grammy nomination for a songwriting credit on H.E.R.’s smash hit Focus and has amassed millions of streams as an artist in his own right. He’s been lauded by industry heavyweights like Nicki Minaj, Alicia Keys and Jermaine Dupri, propelling Love into the top tier of emerging artists to watch in 2019.

Bad Mind is one of a string of singles that Love plans to release over the coming months, gearing up for a big year ahead. Check out the music video for his previous single – Runaway.

Bad Mind was produced by Source (who has also produced for Fetty Wap, NBA Youngboy, Kirko Bangz among others).

Joe Bonamassa American Fall Tour

JOE BONAMASSA ANNOUNCES 2019 AMERICAN FALL TOUR

TWO-TIME GRAMMY-NOMINATED BLUES ROCK GUITARIST TO PLAY AT THE SHOW AT AGUA CALIENTE RANCHO MIRAGE ON WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 23, 2019 AND OTHER ICONIC VENUES

TICKETS ON SALE NEXT FRIDAY, APRIL 26, AT 10 A.M.

Today, two-time GRAMMY-nominated blues-rock titan Joe Bonamassa announces tour dates for summer 2019 in support of his all-original studio album Redemption (J&R Adventures), which was released last September. New tour dates will go on sale Friday, April 26th and will be available here. These additional dates bring Joe’s already busy touring schedule to nearly 100 shows for 2019.

Backed by a stellar band of legendary musicians including Late Night with David Letterman’s Anton Fig (drums), Nashville recording legend Michael Rhodes (bass), Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and member of Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, Reese Wynans (piano/organ), Paulie Cerra (sax), Lee Thornburg (trumpet), and featuring soulful background singers to bring a whole new life to the show which will feature brand new songs alongside career-spanning favorites.

Bonamassa is one of today’s top live performers and his enthusiastic shows are one of the biggest parts of his career, and a favorite for music lovers worldwide. Hailed internationally as one of the greatest guitar players of his generation, Bonamassa has almost single-handedly redefined the blues-rock genre and brought it into the mainstream. He’s on the road about 200 days out of the year, and when he’s not on stage, he’s fully committed to crafting the most intricate, diversified new music to share with his dedicated audiences and fans.

In 2018, Bonamassa achieved his 21st #1 album on the Billboard Blues Chart, with Redemption, his most ambitious, barrier-breaking studio album yet. With over 30 albums to his credit, including studio and live recordings, collaborative albums with blues sensation Beth Hart, and side projects Black Country Communion and Rock Candy Funk Party, the guitar sensation somehow always finds ways to reinvent his artistry.

Earlier this year, Bonamassa also became the host of a new weekly show on SiriusXM’s Bluesville. The show, Different Shades of Blue with Joe Bonamassa, explores all aspects of the blues music genre like never before and has Bonamassa curating his favorite blues songs with an eclectic mix of everything from legendary classics to historical deep cuts and modern hits, airing 6pm ET every Monday on SiriusXM channel 74.

A prolific writer who is always on the hunt to expand his eclectic musical horizons and develop new ways to interact with fans, Bonamassa has a limitless work ethic whether it’s in studio, on the road, or working with other artists to spur new music. This year on the road, audiences see Bonamassa at his ultimate creative peak as an artist, and with these new tour additions his fire is unstoppable. With a vast, unparalleled catalogue of music under his belt, this tour promises to be Bonamassa’s best.

Norwegian Air Customers Donate to UNICEF

$3 Million Donated to UNICEF by Norwegian Air Passengers

Customers of Norwegian Air, the World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul Airline and Value Airline of the Year, have donated a total of three million dollars since a donation option was introduced to the booking process in July 2015.

Within its first year, the new donation option raised more than $720,000, and in July 2018, Norwegian introduced onboard donations featured in the personal in-flight entertainment system on its Boeing 787 Dreamliner fleet. American passengers are among the top donors with Californians donating the most to UNICEF.

Norwegian and UNICEF established its signature partnership in 2007. Since then the airline has supported various initiatives, which also includes its “Fill a Plane” campaign, saving hundreds of thousands of children. Five humanitarian flights carried out since 2014 have brought tons of emergency aid to the Central African Republic; the world’s second-largest refugee camp, Za’atari in Jordan; Mali; to Djibouti for relief to Yemen; and last year, to Chad.

Through the booking process customers can choose to donate $3, $5, $10 or $15, which will go directly to UNICEF. Donations can support the following:

  • $3 can provide a life-saving mosquito net, which will protect newborns against malaria;
  • $5 can enable UNICEF to vaccinate 20 children against polio;
  • $10 can provide an entire class of 20 students with exercise books; and
  • $15 can buy 38 packets of therapeutic food – enough for two-weeks of treatment for a malnourished child.

“I would like to personally thank all our wonderful customers for their generosity. Their donations help UNICEF ensure that even more children around the world get access to the future they deserve. When it is this easy to donate, we notice that many more contribute to such a great cause,” said Norwegian’s Founder and CEO, Bjørn Kjos.

“So much of UNICEF’s work is made possible by the ongoing generosity of partners like Norwegian Air,” said Caryl M. Stern, President and CEO, UNICEF USA. “We are incredibly grateful for the support and commitment of Norwegian Air and travelers to help UNICEF continue to put children first around the world. Every donation – large or small – makes a difference.”

Norwegian passengers donate the most as they also represent the largest nationality of the airline’s customer base. Most generous per donation, however, are the Danes. Among American customers, passengers out of Oakland are the most generous per donation (average $5.50 donation), followed by Los Angeles ($5.40) and New Yorkers ($5.08), although in total, more New Yorkers donated as the city is home to most Norwegian routes.

Top 10 routes where passengers have donated the most to UNICEF during their booking process:

1)  London – New York

2)  New York – London

3)  Bergen – Oslo

4)  Oslo – Bergen

5)  Trondheim – Oslo

6)   Los Angeles – London

7)   Stockholm – London

8)   London – Los Angeles

9)   Oslo – London

10) Oslo – Trondheim

Last year, nine Norwegian employees also raised more than $50,000 by representing the airline and UNICEF during the NYC Marathon. This year, another group of employees will do the same.

About Norwegian

Norwegian is the world’s fifth largest low-cost airline and carried over 37 million passengers in 2018. The airline operates more than 500 routes to over 150 destinations in Europe, North Africa, Middle East, Thailand, Caribbean, North and South America. Norwegian has a fleet of more than 160 aircraft, with an average age of 3.8 years, making it one of the world’s youngest and “greenest” fleets.

Norwegian has been named the Most Fuel-Efficient Airline on Transatlantic Routes by the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) twice. Norwegian has been voted ‘Europe’s Best Low-Cost Airline’ by passengers for six consecutive years at the SkyTrax World Airline Awards 2013-2018, along with being named the ‘World’s Best Low-Cost Long-Haul’ Airline’ for the past four years. Norwegian employs more than 11,000 people worldwide.
