But her song “Lost Without You” broke the mold, bringing its enveloping sense of loss straight from her imagination.

It just came out fully formed, and I was like, ‘Oh my god, that just made me want to cry.'” It’s received a big reaction with more than a million views on YouTube and Top 40 placement on the UK Official Charts.The unexpected response is reminiscent of another real experience from Ridings’ life. “We made these little guerilla-style videos where we go around these secret pianos that are on underground train stations in London,” she shared. “No one would stop, and I loved that because it was kind of in your own world.” They tipped their fans 24 hours prior to one of these sessions thinking to attract “friends and family” but they got more than they bargained for. “They had to shut down the station,” she described. “It was hundreds of people and I was like, ‘What is going on?’ I still can’t believe that happened.” A friend’s choir even showed up and joined in.It will be interesting to see how other unexpected and imaginary life experiences surface through this emerging talent’s songs that have yet to arrive.The Aces On Music As A Tool To Ease The PainRead more

India’s campaign was cruising along, but the defeat against England has suddenly forced the management to sit up and address few issues. There are issues with the opening order, there is a gaping hole in the middle order and then there are issues with the Kedar Jadhav’s role in the side. Ahead of the match against Bangladesh, India’s batting coach Sanjay Manjrekar addressed all these issues and tried to give an explanation for the same.For starters, Bangar said that India will keep Rishabh Pant at number 4 as he offers flexibility since he is a left-hander and this can be very helpful in the middle order.”I felt he had a decent innings,” Bangar told reporters at Edgbaston. “He got 32 and played a couple of good shots, got a partnership going (with Hardik Pandya), so we’re going to persist with him.”He was then asked about the much-talked-about intent of MS Dhoni and India’s approach in the latter end of their chase against England. Bangar shrugged aside any question over Dhoni and said that he was surprised the question over MS Dhoni keeps coming up after every second match.Dhoni does the job for the side MS DhoniICC TwitterHe also believed that Dhoni was doing a job for the side and that the management and the side were very happy with his intent.”I’m surprised that this question continues to come up every now and then. He’s doing the job for the team and overall we’re very happy with the intent he’s batting with,” Bangar said on the eve of the match against Bangladesh.”Except for one odd innings (28 off 52 balls against Afghanistan), he has always performed his role. Five out of seven games he has done the job for the team,” he further added.The small boundaries on one side at Edgbaston could force India to tweak their bowling combinations and Bangar said that they have always been flexible and will take a look at the conditions on offer before making a call before the match as far as the bowling stocks are concerned. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is fit and he could be in the side replacing Kuldeep Yadav, while Ravindra Jadeja could replace Kedar Jadhav as the all-rounder lower down the order. Virat KohliBCCI Twitter”We know the wicket and ground dimensions really well. We would try to learn from the match against England. We will assess the things that went wrong and try to execute our skills better against Bangladesh,” Bangar said.”The team management will be open to various combinations in the next match. We will look at the wicket and the ground dimensions. We will look at Ravindra Jadeja coming in,” he further added.
Trump boards Air Force One for travel to Naval Station Norfolk from Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, US. Photo: ReutersUS President Donald Trump declared on Saturday that he has “complete power to pardon,” as his administration confronts ongoing investigations of possible ties between his 2016 campaign and Russia.In a series of early morning Twitter messages, Trump aired renewed frustration with his attorney general, the special counsel leading the Russia probe, and Republicans in Congress who are struggling to advance his legislative agenda.But Trump’s comment about pardons, tucked into an attack on the media, raised the possibility that he was considering his options if the investigations do not turn out the way he hopes.Trump did not specify who, if anyone, he might consider pardoning. His tweets appeared to be written in response to a report by The Washington Post this week that Trump and his legal team have examined presidential powers to pardon Trump aides, family members and possibly even himself.Reuters has not confirmed the newspaper accounts.“While all agree the US President has the complete power to pardon, why think of that when only crime so far is LEAKS against us. FAKE NEWS,” Trump wrote.The Washington Post, citing current and former US officials, reported on Friday that Russia’s ambassador to the United States was overheard by US spy agencies telling his bosses that he had discussed campaign-related matters with Trump adviser Jeff Sessions last year, when Sessions was a US senator.Sessions now leads the Justice Department as Trump’s attorney general.“These illegal leaks…must stop,” Trump tweeted.At the Senate confirmation hearings for his Cabinet position, Sessions initially failed to disclose his 2016 contacts with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak and later said they were not about the campaign.In March, Sessions recused himself from the Russia probe. During an interview with The New York Times this week, Trump lashed out at Sessions, saying he would not have chosen him for attorney general had he known Sessions would recuse himself.Trump, who defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in last year’s presidential election but continues to use her as a foil, questioned why Sessions and special counsel Robert Mueller were not investigating former FBI Director James Comey or Clinton, for her email practices as secretary of state.“So many people are asking why isn’t the A.G. or Special Counsel looking at the many Hillary Clinton or Comey crimes. 33,000 emails deleted…,” he tweeted.Presidential AuthorityScholars have raised questions about the scope of the president’s legal authority in issuing pardons. If Trump moved to pardon himself sometime in the future, the US Supreme Court might have to decide on the constitutionality, some have speculated.Trump has not been accused of any wrongdoing by federal investigators who are probing alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election.Mueller is looking into any relationships or contacts between Trump campaign officials and Russians during the election. Congressional committees also are exploring Russia’s influence on the US election.Trump traveled on Saturday to Norfolk, Virginia, where he spoke at a commissioning ceremony for the aircraft carrier the USS Gerald R Ford, named for the Republican president who held the White House from 1974-1977.In his remarks, Trump made no mention of the Russia controversy, focusing his speech on the need for more robust US military spending.After the trip, Trump retreated to his golf course near Washington and had lunch with his chief of staff, Reince Priebus, policy adviser Stephen Miller and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and his wife, a White House official said.Priebus’s presence in the entourage came a day after Trump named a new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, reportedly over Priebus’s objections.The weekend trip comes ahead of a busy week of Russia-related activity.The Senate Judiciary Committee said on Friday that Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr, and Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort had agreed to negotiate whether to be interviewed by the panel in its Russia investigation.Trump Jr, Manafort and Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and now one of his senior advisers, all met with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in June 2016. That meeting was held in Trump Tower in New York after the lawyer offered damaging information about Clinton.The White House is also working on Trump’s campaign promise to US healthcare system.In his Saturday tweets, Trump had words for Republican senators who have not been able to agree on a way forward to repeal and replace former President Barack Obama’s healthcare law, the Affordable Care Act, which has become known as Obamacare and which Trump promised to do away with as president.“The Republican Senators must step up to the plate and, after 7 years, vote to Repeal and Replace. Next, Tax Reform and Infrastructure. WIN!” he tweeted.

BEIJING — Aviation authorities in China, Indonesia and Ethiopia ordered airlines in those countries to ground their Boeing 737 Max 8 planes after one of the aircraft crashed in Ethiopia, killing all 157 people on board.The crash of the Ethiopian Airlines jet shortly after it took off from Addis Ababa on Sunday is drawing renewed scrutiny of the plane just four months after a similar crash of the same model of aircraft in Indonesia that killed 189 people.A spokesman for Ethiopian Airlines, Asrat Begashaw, said the carrier had grounded its remaining four 737 Max 8 planes until further notice as an “extra safety precaution.”The airline had been using five new 737 Max 8s and awaiting delivery of 25 more. Asrat said the search for body parts and debris from the crash was continuing.China’s Civil Aviation Administration said that it ordered airlines to ground all 737 Max 8 aircraft as of 6 p.m. Monday, in line with the principle of “zero tolerance for security risks.”It said it would issue further notices after consulting with the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and Boeing.China Southern Airlines is one of Boeing’s biggest customers for the aircraft.Indonesia also grounded 737 Max 8s for inspections.Director General of Air Transportation Polana B. Pramesti said the grounding was taken to ensure flight safety and ensure the planes are airworthy.There are currently 11 Max 8 planes operated by airlines in Indonesia including 10 by Lion Air and 1 by the national carrier, Garuda.Cayman Airways said it was temporarily grounding the two Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft it operates, as of Monday.More news: Sunwing to further boost Mazatlán service with new flights from OttawaReal time flight radar apps showed dozens of the aircraft still operating around the globe.Chicago-based Boeing said it did not intend to issue any new guidance to its customers. It plans to send a technical team to the crash site to help Ethiopian and U.S. investigators, however, and issued a statement saying it was “deeply saddened to learn of the passing of the passengers and crew” on the Ethiopian Airlines Max airplane.Ethiopia’s state-affiliated Fana Broadcasting Corporate reports that the black box has been found from the crashed Ethiopian Airlines plane.An airline official, however, tells The Associated Press that the box is partially damaged and that “we will see what we can retrieve from it.”A senior UN official and a New Brunswick forester were among the 18 Canadians who died Sunday. The United Nations High Commission for Refugees said one of its Canadian-born employees, Jessica Hyba, was among the victims of the deadly crash of an Ethiopian Airlines plane.Meanwhile, forestry groups identified Peter DeMarsh of New Brunswick as one of the victims.The 737 is the bestselling airliner in history, and the Max, the newest version of it with more fuel-efficient engines, is a central part of Boeing’s strategy to compete with European rival Airbus.Boeing has delivered about 350 737 Max planes to scores of airlines and has orders for more than 5,000.Shares in the company fell 9.6% Monday in pre-market trading.Air Canada said in an email statement Monday that it has operated Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft since 2017.“These aircraft have performed excellently from a safety, reliability and customer satisfaction perspective,” said spokeswoman Isabelle Arthur. “We continue to monitor the situation, and based on current information and recommendations by government safety regulators, including Transport Canada, and the manufacturer, we continue to operate our normal B737 schedule.”More news: Kory Sterling is TL Network Canada’s new Sales Manager CanadaAir Canada has 24 Boeing 737-8 Max planes in its fleet and WestJet operates 13. WestJet also expressed condolences, and said it would not speculate on the cause of the incident at this time. WestJet said it is “working with Boeing to ensure the continued safe operation of our Max fleet.” Alan Diehl, a former National Transportation Safety Board investigator, said reports of large variations in vertical speed during the Ethiopian jetliner’s ascent were “clearly suggesting a potential controllability problem.”Other possible causes include engine problems, pilot error, weight load, sabotage or bird strikes, he said.Ethiopian has a good reputation and the company’s CEO told reporters no problems were spotted before Sunday’s fight. But investigators also will look into the plane’s maintenance, which may have been an issue in the Lion Air crash.Days after the Indonesian accident, Boeing notified airlines that faulty information from a sensor could cause the plane to automatically point the nose down. The automated system kicks in if sensors indicate that a plane is about to lose lift, or go into an aerodynamic stall. Gaining speed by diving can prevent a stall.The notice reminded pilots of the procedure for handling such a situation, which is to disable the system causing the automatic nose-down movements. << Previous PostNext Post >> By: The Associated Press Growing number of Boeing Max 8 planes grounded Monday, March 11, 2019 With files from The Canadian Press Share
