Zakir Hussain Tells The Story Of How He Met The Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart [Listen]

first_imgZakir Hussain is a true legend. His work on the tabla was hugely influential, as Indian music broke through into the Western musical mainstream. The album that launched his American music career was Rolling Thunder, Grateful Dead percussionist Mickey Hart’s first solo album, released in 1972. Hussain would go on to have a vibrant career, collaborating with musicians like John McLaughlin and Ravi Shankar, while also contributing music to films like Apocalypse Now. However, it was his connection with Hart that started it all, and he would re-connect with Hart on several occasions throughout his career, appearing on seven more albums and countless shows with Hart over the years.Now,Hussain has revealed just how he initially crossed paths with Hart, in a new interview. Zakir will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award at the SFJAZZ Gala in January 2017. Hart will be on hand to present the award. Listen to a five-minute clip from the interview below, where Hussain discusses his early encounter with Mickey Hart, and learn how a piece of musical history was made.last_img read more

USDA Reports Review

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Dana MantiniDTN Senior AnalystThe March USDA World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates (WASDE) report was not expected to be a market-mover, as it is typically less volatile than the January report, which was released in combination with the February report due to the government shutdown. Although there were some surprises, the futures price action post-report resulted in little change. Shortly after the report, soybeans renewed their bearish move lower, fueled not only by bearish supply-and-demand news, but also fund and technical selling. Despite the bearish change to both corn and wheat markets, the post-report price move was negligible, as it appears that bearishness was already factored into prices.Key changes in the report were a higher-than-expected reduction in both U.S. wheat and corn exports. Following some minor tweaks in wheat imports and feed use, and an expected decline in corn for ethanol usage, wheat ending stocks rose 45 million bushels (mb) and corn ending stocks were up 100 mb from February — primarily on expectations of slowing demand due to lower-priced competitors.Closing futures prices as of March 8 had May corn down 1 cent per bushel and December corn down 1/2 cent. May soybeans were down 6 3/4 cents and November beans were down 6 cents. Chicago May wheat was up 1 1/4 cents, while Chicago July wheat was up 2 1/2 cents. Kansas City May wheat was up 3 1/4 cents per bushel, with new-crop Kansas City July up 3 1/4 cents. Minneapolis May wheat was down 3 3/4 cents, with new-crop September down 2 3/4 cents on increased spring wheat carryout of 27 million bushels, and new crop.Here is a closer look at USDA’s latest estimates:CORNU.S corn ending stocks were raised by 100 mb (greater than expected) to 1.835 billion bushels (bb) versus an average pre-report trade estimate of 1.755 bb. The combination of a 25 mb reduction in corn used for ethanol to 5.550 bb and a 75 mb reduction in U.S. exports to 2.375 bb led to the gain. While most expected ethanol to move lower, few expected such a large decrease in exports. That was likely attributed to much larger and cheaper South American supplies. The season average price received by producers was lowered 5 cents to $3.55 per bushel.U.S. sorghum exports were lowered by 15 mb to 85 mb — the lowest since 2012-13 — and sorghum used for ethanol was lowered 5 mb. Offsetting that was an increase of 20 mb in feed and residual.World corn production was raised for India and lowered 500,000 metric tons (mt) to 11 million metric tons (511.7 mb) for South Africa. Corn exports were raised for Argentina (up 1 mmt) and Ukraine (up 500,000 mt) as U.S. exports were lowered. China’s ending stocks fell by 3 mmt (66.1 mb) — all attributed to higher feed usage. The net effect is that world ending corn stocks fell by 1.25 mmt from February to 308.53 mmt (12.1 bb).In addition to the 100 mb increase in U.S. ending stocks, should the WASDE projections for South America be realized, they would have production of 26.5 million metric tons (1.043 bb) more than last year.SOYBEANSThere were few changes in U.S. soybeans, with the 10 mb increase in domestic crush leading to the 10 mb decline in U.S. ending stocks to a still-record and burdensome 900 mb — close to what was expected pre-report.World soybean stocks increased by nearly 1 mmt to 107.17 mmt (3.94 bb), with a decrease in Brazilian soy production of 500,000 mt to 116.5 mmt (4.28 bb) and a decrease in China’s crush of 1 mmt. China imports were left unchanged. There are many in the trade who are doubtful that such a pace can be achieved with the ongoing spread of the African swine fever and its demand impact, as well as the ongoing trade issues with China, the top soy importer.The net effect of the March report for soybeans — though the changes were small — reinforces the ongoing saga of huge supplies.WHEATThe March USDA report led to a 45 mb larger ending stocks number than expected — about 20 mb higher than pre-report estimates. The increase was comprised mostly of a reduction in U.S. wheat exports by 35 mb, with the other 10 mb gain from an increase in imports of 5 mb and a reduction of 5 mb in food use. The season average farm price range was narrowed to $5.10 to $5.20, down 10 cents on the high side.World wheat ending stocks were raised by 3 mmt to 270.53 mmt (9.94 bb), with India’s decrease in consumption of 3 mmt being primarily responsible for the change. Larger EU and Brazil exports were offset by lower U.S. exports. Lower production forecasts for both Iraq and Kazakhstan were also featured.The gist of the USDA report on wheat was overall bearish as U.S. carryout approaches a surplus 1.1 bb. However, the recent 90-cent drop in futures prices in the past four weeks has likely already factored in the missed opportunities for U.S. wheat exports, hence the higher close on report day.Dana Mantini can be reached at [email protected] him on Twitter at @mantini_r(BE/AG)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

Hotels Test Smartphones as Room Keys

first_imgStarting in June, the Intercontinental Hotel Group is testing out the use of smartphones as room keys. Using an app from OpenWays, patrons at the Holiday Inn Chicago O’ Hare Rosemont or the Holiday Inn Express Houston Downtown Convention Center download a distinct audio code into their iPhone, Blackberry or Android. Passing the phone by the door lock will open it and patrons will bypass the front desk altogether. Unless they need towels.For those who are used to researching, reserving and paying for hotels online, this may be a logical next step. It goes in line with such uses of smartphone-powered tech as United Airlines’ mobile boarding passes at airports.As Marin Perez points out in IntoMobile, it’s far from a no-brainer. Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces curt hopkins Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts “The app has to work consistently or it could lead to a lot of cheesed off customers. Additionally, hotels could lose that personal touch and branding connection with the customer, which is always a problem.”It would also be an expense for the hoteliers, as the system requires a special lock, without either keyhole or keycard swipe, on any room in the program. But if it goes off without a significant hitch, the handful of hotels and couple of months IGH intends to take for the test could turn into dozens of properties and no end of time. RFID AgainAnother hotel chain, Starwood, is one of many experimenting with radio frequency identification, or RFID. At their Lexington, Massachusetts property, the Aloft Hotel, they are equipping guests with RFID cards. Visitors interesting in giving RFID a try are given a “Starwood Preferred Guest” card specific to the Aloft. The day of their check-in, they are sent a text with their room number. The RFID card is programmed to open that door automatically. Although far from common, RFID keying systems are more common than audio-based ones.Even phones equipped with near-field communication, which reads RFID codes in door locks, have been used since 2006.As long as both indie and chain hotels and resorts are struggling for traveler dollars, expect their experiments to closely pace, and occasionally outstrip, their visitors’ personal technology choices.

Industry Insights: Behind the Scenes with Editor Nena Erb

first_imgWe went in-depth and behind the scenes with Nena Erb, the editor of Insecure, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and Project Greenlight.Talking the world of editing with prolific cutter Nena Erb, three qualities stand out. She believes in serving the story. She believes in lifting those around her up. She believes in herself.Nena Erb (photo by Merie Wallace).PremiumBeat: Do you have a particular way you like to work, or does it wholly depend on the producers and directors?Nena Erb: When I start an episode, I usually reach out to the director to say hi or introduce myself, if we haven’t worked together before. I typically ask them how they like to work. Do they like to camp out and watch me address notes on the fly, or are they the type that likes to screen it with me, give me notes, and then leave me to do the work? There are benefits to both methods, and I’m used to running the session in whatever method they prefer.PB: Does a warm personal connection produce the best results, or have you had artistic conflicts with the major players and it actually upped your game? How hard do you fight for your vision, or do you feel your role is to serve the directors?NE: Editing is an interesting job. It requires you to be objective and subjective. Subjective so you can pick the right performances that will best tell the story, and hopefully resonate with viewers. Objective so you can pivot quickly if someone doesn’t agree with your vision.Once you’ve handed in your editor’s cut, it’s not your vision anymore. It’s about the director’s vision or the producer’s vision or the studio’s vision, and your job is to make their vision reality.And I find that there’s no upside to pushback or [confrontation], if people have a difference of opinion. It’s not about who’s right or who’s wrong. It’s about how you want to tell the story. As an editor, I’ve already gone through all the dailies and know where all the bodies are buried, but they haven’t. It’s my job to take them down that path — even if I’ve already been there — so they can discover things for themselves. I find sometimes revisiting dailies will spark another idea, so I’m all for it.PB: You came aboard Insecure in Season 3. What’s it like being the new kid on the block with a show that has its tenor and tone pretty well established?NE: I’ve loved the series from the beginning, so I was excited (but also nervous) when I signed on to work on Season 3. Working with an entirely new group of people comes with its own challenges — not to mention learning the style and tone of the show. Fortunately, Issa Rae, Prentice Penny, Deniese Davis . . . pretty much the entire crew . . . were wonderful. They were all very supportive. And Mark Sadlek, the returning editor on the series, had been there from the pilot, so he was a great resource if I had any questions. The entire team was incredibly supportive and made my first season of the show a wonderful experience.Editor Thelma Schoonmaker with Martin Scorsese (via IMDB).PB: Editing actually has a long history of women participating: Thelma Schoonmaker, Sally Menke, Barbara McLean, Anne Coates. What do you think it is about — the role of the editor — that made it a more practical way in for women?NE: Back in the day, people felt editing was women’s work because it’s similar to sewing. I’m not sure when in history or how the scales were tipped in the other direction, but it’s become a male-dominated field. It’s hard to give a concrete comparison without stats, but I’ve often been the only woman in the post-production department on my projects. It’s only recently that I’ve found my way to projects that made it a point to hire women editors. Having a female voice in post-production is important. Especially if it’s a show about women. Men and women see and react to things differently, so it’s beneficial to have both voices in editorial.PB: You won an Emmy for Project Greenlight, and you’ve worked robustly in non-scripted formats. What’s the rush and the challenge in editing documentaries or reality shows vs. narratives?NE: In nonfiction, the camera captures and documents the events that happen. You have no idea what the story is, and it’s your job to find it in hundreds of hours of footage. Regardless of the project or genre, it’s all about the story. For nonfiction, I prefer to remain truthful. I don’t want to manufacture false moments because I’m not a fan of putting words in people’s mouths, if it’s not what they’ve already stated.On a narrative project, you know what the story is and your job becomes more about finding performances and cutting the project in a way that elicits the right emotion, or reaction, that you need to tell the story.Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (via CBS).PB: You’re editing the final season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Is there any additional pressure to get it right?NE: The series was in Season 4, and there was a well-established look, sound, and tenor. The musical numbers, or videos, were what changed from episode to episode. That was challenging, not because it’s the final season but because they run the gamut in genre, and that’s what I love about the show.The look of the series is well-established, but you get to be creative in the way you cut the music videos. Cutting musical videos on Crazy Ex is a little different because these music videos are essentially Rebecca Bunch’s fantasy, so it’s important to establish the fantasy space vs. the reality of where she is in the show. This way the viewers aren’t confused as to what’s happening. That can be with a lighting change or an effect/treatment or sound design you put in post. And it’s also not just about the choreography in a big dance number, or the wow factor in dynamic camera moves — the most important thing is the jokes have to land.Nena Erb (photo by Rachel Luna).PB: I’m Jewish — you’re Asian — we’re basically the same people. We were raised with parents wanting us to become doctors and lawyers and around Majong games. How did you pitch your family on wanting to become an editor? (I’m asking this for the tons of readers who want to become part of this business, yet get major pushback from their families.)NE: There weren’t any major conversations with the parents where I shared what I wanted to do. I just kind of did it. And shockingly, they let me do my thing. I’m sure they thought if they let me do this for a little while, I’d get it out of my system and then go to medical school or law school. But after a little while, they realized that wasn’t happening and I was serious about having a career in the entertainment industry.I told my mom I loved what I was doing and that I can’t imagine doing anything else. And I remember asking her, if she were a patient, would she want a doctor who hated their job? She understood where I was coming from. I’m sure they were incredibly nervous for me but they let me forge on my own path. This is unusual because in Asian culture, it’s about the collective, not about the individual. So for them to allow me to do this went against everything they knew and believed in.Next of Kin.PB: I can’t help but notice that you do a lot of labor-of-love, low-profile projects. Many of them shorts. What draws you to these projects?NE: I’m drawn to the content. Powerful stories and well-written scripts are the reason I take on side projects. I enjoy collaborating with directors I’ve worked with before, or friends that I want to support. It’s also a great opportunity to try my hand in other genres, and it challenges me to solve problems, without having the backing of a big production. It really keeps me on my creative toes.Reese Witherspoon, Big Little Lies (via HBO).PB: Any bucket list genre or project you’d love to be doing? Someone you are dying to work with?NE: I would love to work on any of Reese Witherspoon’s projects, whether it’s a feature or one of her limited series. Big Little Lies was masterful, and she’s currently doing another limited series called Little Fires Everywhere, which was a book I loved. I feel she has great taste in the projects she picks, she’s a champion of women, and I love what she stands for.PB: Finally — any advice for someone who wants to be where you are?NE: For recent graduates or graduating seniors, look into ACE’s internship program. They will give you such an upper hand in getting into post-production. For those who are getting into post-production a little later in life, I’d say if you’re working as a PA, be the best PA you can be. Anticipate people’s needs and spend time with the assistant editors and learn as much as you can from them.For assistants wanting to move up, cut as much as you can get your hands on. No production will hire an unknown. Cut as many shorts on the side while working your day job and tell your editor you want to edit. Ask for scenes to cut or recaps to edit so you can be ready when the opportunity to get bumped up to the editor’s chair presents itself.Cover image via Insecure (HBO).Looking for more industry interviews?
