Pop music fans were ecstatic to see two iconic pop stars meet face-to-face for the first time ever. On Thursday, March 9th, Dua Lipa and the legendary Cher were seated next to each other at the Versace Fall Winter 2023/24 Show in West Hollywood, California. A video of the two of them meeting was captured and reshared by the pop culture Twitter account Pop Base.
In the video, Cher approaches Dua who gets up from her seat and sweetly says, \"Hi. It's so nice to meet you,\" before shaking Cher's hand. The two then sit down and get ready for the show. Lil Nas X can also be seen just outside of the frame, sitting next to Dua.
While this week marked the first face-to-face meeting between Cher and Dua, the \"Believe\" singer did acknowledge Dua in a tweet from 2022. After a tweet calling Dua the \"Cher of our generation\" went viral, Cher responded by asking, \"How many [years] are in a generation,\" with a thinking face emoji.

I recorded the mix right when the first covid-19 lockdown was ending in Tel Aviv. I used my digital collection of ambient tracks, stuff that I accumulated through my explorations for Music 4 Standing Still, my Spotify ambient playlist. The mix itself was done on Ableton, where most of the stuff I do gets done.
When I think back at it, playing as a supporting act to Tame Impala and Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab (Not Stereolab, but Just as good), has felt surprisingly like any other show i played. In some of the cases the people I got to meet stayed friends (Like Laetita for example, who later collaborated with me in one of my bands, and even sang in Hebrew!), and in some cases the connections were unfortunately lost.
CARRIE BROWNSTEIN: In a time when one can easily manipulate an album's sequence, or bypass the purchase of an album and buy only one or two songs, how does that affect the process of making and sequencing an album Why is it still important for musicians to put out albums and make artwork for that album Or is it not important
THURSTON MOORE: SY is a democratic band in the sense that no one is going to control any bit of songwriting regardless of how complete it is when brought to rehearsal. We all figured that by having Sonic youth as a forum specifically for the sake of collaboration, that allows us to work outside it so as to fetishize the personal desires each of us may have.
If you love the glitzy world of the show business, this is the perfect party for you. Oscar and movie reels toppings give any cupcake the glamour touch to help you celebrate. And there are never enough stars when we are going Hollywood.
Retrospectively, Bowie's original recording has been named one of his best songs, with many praising the haunting and unsettling nature of the recording. Following Bowie's death in 2016, Rolling Stone listed the song as one of his 30 essential songs. The same year, Ultimate Classic Rock, in their list of Bowie's ten best songs, listed \"The Man Who Sold the World\" at number 10, calling it \"one of his most haunting songs of all time\". They subsequently commended Lulu and Nirvana's cover versions for helping bring the song into the mainstream. In 2018, NME, in their list of Bowie's 40 greatest songs, ranked \"The Man Who Sold the World\" number 17, writing, \"[The track] is not just a vintage slice of Bowie story-telling but a key part in his '90s renaissance, 20 years later\", due in part to Nirvana's cover, which appeared at a time when \"Bowie's critical stock was at a career-low ... coming after Bowie's late-'80s run of maligned albums.\" In 2020, Alexis Petridis of The Guardian ranked the song 23rd in a list of Bowie's 50 greatest songs, writing, \"The title track of his eeriest album remains mysterious, creepy and haunting 50 years on.\"
Regarding meeting her in the \"Last Supper\" at the Hotel Café Royal, Bowie later said, \"We started talking about the possibility of working together. I was keen to get something fixed up, because I really have always thought that Lulu has incredible potential as a rock singer. I didn't think this potential had been fully realised...we decided on 'The Man Who Sold The World' as being most suitable.\" Bowie produced Lulu's recording of \"The Man Who Sold the World\" with Mick Ronson during the July 1973 Pin Ups sessions at the Château d'Hérouville in Hérouville, France and also contributed saxophone and backing vocals. The remainder of the band included Ronson on guitar, Trevor Bolder on bass, Mike Garson on piano, and Aynsley Dunbar on drums. Bowie added saxophone overdubs and oversaw the final mix at Olympic Studios in London during the Diamond Dogs sessions. According to O'Leary, Bowie had Lulu smoke cigarettes in between takes in order to \"abrade\" her voice.
Bowie said of Nirvana's cover: \"I was simply blown away when I found that Kurt Cobain liked my work, and have always wanted to talk to him about his reasons for covering 'The Man Who Sold the World'\" and that \"it was a good straight forward rendition and sounded somehow very honest. It would have been nice to have worked with him, but just talking with him would have been real cool.\" Bowie called Nirvana's cover \"heartfelt\", noting that \"until this [cover], it hadn't occurred to me that I was part of America's musical landscape. I always felt my weight in Europe, but not [in the US].\" In the wake of its release, Bowie bemoaned the fact that when he performed the number himself, he would encounter \"kids that come up afterwards and say, 'It's cool you're doing a Nirvana song.' And I think, 'Fuck you, you little tosser!'\" Rolling Stone added: \"If the mark of a good cover is that people do not even realise it's a cover, Nirvana certainly did a good job\" and that \"The song also took on new meaning after Cobain died. This was a man with the world at his finger tips, and he gave it all up\". The magazine ranked Nirvana's version number one in a reader's poll of the greatest live cover songs.
NIGHTTIME VISUAL DISTURBANCESOne of the reasons why I prefer the AcrySof Restor multifocal IOL platform (Alcon Laboratories, Inc., Fort Worth, TX) is that I have found it produces fewer difficulties with nighttime glare and halos than the ReZoom zonal refractive IOL (Advanced Medical Optics, Inc., Santa Ana, CA). In early 2007, I presented a poster at the ASCRS meeting describing the results of an optical bench evaluation of nighttime visual symptoms with various multifocal IOLs.1 I found the least distortion with the AcrySof Restor platform (Figure 1). Similarly, for a poster presented at the 2007 ESCRS meeting, investigators analyzed visual disturbances in a simulated night-driving environment.2 They found the fewest visual disturbances with the AcrySof Restor platform (Figure 2). Obviously, in order to justify placing a ReZoom IOL in a fellow eye, the surgeon must feel that the known disadvantage of nighttime dysphotopsia will be offset by a significant improvement for the patient in another parameter of visual function.
Data from other clinicians also demonstrate that the midrange \"difficulties\" of the AcrySof Restor lens have been overestimated. In a prospective study of patients who received the AcrySof Restor or ReZoom IOL bilaterally and in a retrospective study of patients who received the Crystalens accommodating IOL (Eyeonics, Inc., Aliso Viejo, CA) bilaterally, David Chang, MD, found that the AcrySof Restor group had the strongest midrange vision when tested through their best distance correction to produce an emmetropic eye.4
Dr. Boyajian (pronounced \"boy-ah-jin\" - not as scary as it looks!) graduated from Kansas State University in 2019. Born and raised in Kansas, she went to K-State (Go Cats!) for both her undergraduate degree in Animal Science and veterinary degree. She fell in love with the idea of mixed animal practice during her undergrad years when her animal science degree helped her develop a passion for animal agriculture and agriculture as a whole. Becoming a pivotal role in animal welfare is the driving force behind Dr. Boyajian's desire to be a veterinarian. Animals can serve many roles in people's lives, and she looks forward to working with the wonderful clientele at Bailey's to determine how to best keep those animal roles and relationships at the forefront every day.She has one pet that made the move cross country - her dachshund, Todd, (named after the character in the movie \"The Fox and the Hound\"). She loves rainy days and reading, and hopes to start fishing more with all the wonderful opportunities that the area surrounding Roseburg offers!
Potassium bromate (KBrO3), is a flour \"improver\" that strengthens dough and allows for greater oven spring and higher rising in the oven. Potassium bromate, commonly referred to as simply \"bromate,\" is a slow-acting oxidizer, contributing its functionality throughout the mixing, fermentation and proofing stages, with important residual action during the early stages of baking. Azodicarbonamide (ADA), potassium and calcium iodate, and calcium peroxide are rapid-acting oxidizers, while ascorbic acid (vitamin C) works at intermediate rates, but all release their activity in mixing and proofing. Bromate, when applied within the prescribed limits (15-30ppm), is completely used up during the bake leaving no trace in the finished product. However, if too much is used, or the bread is not baked long enough or at a high enough temperature, then a residual amount will remain.
We have always felt that baking is much better when you use quality ingredients, and given all of the health risks involved with the use of bromates in bread production, the most important of those ingredients is an unbromated flour. 59ce067264
