first_img Facebook Miley Cyrus Announces New Album ‘Younger Now’ GRAMMY-nominated singer/songwriter sets release date for her latest album featuring the hit “Malibu”Renée FabianGRAMMYs Aug 8, 2017 – 10:32 am GRAMMY.comLast time we heard from our GRAMMY-nominated friend Miley Cyrus, she was coming in like a wrecking ball with 2013’s Bangerz and tripping with 2015’s Miley Cyrus And Her Dead Petz.Now, Cyrus will release of her sixth studio album, Younger Now, due out Sept. 29. The album was announced in full color via her website with a bedazzled black jacket and rope identifying the title and release date.The upcoming album would seem to be a departure from the dance-heavy, hip-hop influenced tunes of her last two albums. The singles “Malibu” and “Inspired,” released in May and June, respectively, already suggest a toned-down, sunshiny vibe that’s more earthy than her last two projects.With Younger Now, Cyrus hasn’t given much away, but she echoed the brighter, warm tone her two singles have taken.She told Billboard: “I’m giving the world a hug and saying, ‘Hey, look. We’re good — I love you.’ And I hope you can say you love me back.”More new music: What was new in music in July?

Ericsson India files insolvency case against Reliance Communications

first_imgA worker cleans a mobile store of Reliance Communications Ltd, controlled by billionaire Anil Ambani, in Kolkata, India, September 10, 2016.Reuters fileEricsson’s Indian subsidiary has filed insolvency petitions against Reliance Communications and two of its companies to recover unpaid dues, the Indian mobile operator said in a stock exchange filing on Wednesday.The Swedish telecoms equipment maker, which signed a seven-year deal in 2014 to operate and manage Reliance Communications’ nationwide network, is seeking a total of $180 million from the three companies, the filing said.Reliance Communications said it planned to challenge the insolvency petitions. The filing said the Ericsson case would go before the National Company Law Tribunal, the designated court for bankruptcy cases in India, on September 26.”Ericsson has done this as a last resort in order to resolve an issue regarding debt that Reliance owes to Ericsson for services provided under a contract. As the legal process is ongoing, we don’t have any further comments at this point,” the Swedish company said.The petitions come as the Indian phone company controlled by billionaire Anil Ambani races against time to seal deals to sell a stake in its tower assets to Canada’s Brookfield and to merge its mobile services business with rival Aircel.Reliance Communications reported its third quarterly loss in a row last month and is trying to find ways to cut its debt after creditors gave it a reprieve on loan repayments until the end of 2017.The Brookfield and Aircel deals are expected to reduce its debt burden by 250 billion rupees. Ambani said at the time of the loan reprieve that he expected to complete the deals by September.The company’s losses are, in part, a result of competition from free voice and cut-price data plans offered by Reliance Jio Infocomm, the telecom start-up backed by Ambani’s elder brother and India’s richest man Mukesh Ambani.Ericsson is aiming to recover Rs 4.91 billion from Reliance Communications, Rs 5.35 billion from Reliance Infratel and Rs 1.29 billion from Reliance Telecom, the filing said.Reliance Communications shares closed 4 percent lower on Wednesday before the filing was released, after local media reports said Ericsson had filed an insolvency plea.India last year revamped its bankruptcy laws to help cut a record $150 billion in impaired bank loans. The rules allow financial as well as business creditors to trigger bankruptcy proceedings against a company which has defaulted on payments.last_img read more

Bill Delaying New Ozone Standards Moves Forward In Congress

first_img Share Ken Lund via FlickrThe Houston skyline on a hazy day in 2015.A bill passed by the U.S. House could have implications for Houston’s air quality struggles, giving polluters more flexibility to meet ozone goals.Pollution in the city’s nowhere near as bad as it was decades ago, but Houston has still regularly failed to meet federal air quality standards.With a bill delaying new, Obama-era ozone standards now headed to the Senate, some worry the air problem will be ignored.  “It is an excuse on the part of industry to not use the billions of dollars it has to actually implement mitigations to reduce its emissions,” says Bakeyah Nelson, Executive Director of Air Alliance Houston. Environment Texas, another green group, has pointed to an uptick in high-ozone days in the past couple years.The groups want petrochemical plants to act now, but Anna Burhop, with the industry group American Chemistry Council, says ozone standards have been changing too fast.“From a business perspective, you don’t want to go ahead and jump into reformulating all of your products, or putting really expensive controls on your plants, when you don’t know whether that’s necessary or not,” she says.It’s not clear how this bill, if it becomes law, would affect an ongoing lawsuit against the EPA’s own effort to delay the new ozone limits.

Lincoln Board Chair Hosts Garden Party To Benefit 10 Million Scholarship Campaign

first_imgThe Lincoln University Board of Trustees Chair Kimberly Lloyd ‘94 is hosting The Chairlady’s Garden Party to benefit the university’s first-ever $10 million Students First Campaign for student scholarships, June 21, on the lawn of its historic Alumni House. The Students First Campaign, which is an endowment campaign for merit and need-based scholarship support, is chaired by Hollywood legend and philanthropist Dr. William “Bill” Cosby Jr., who has been encouraging support from corporations, foundations, churches, the general public as well as alumni, faculty and staff of The Lincoln University. The campaign ends June 30. “The concept of the Chairlady’s Garden Party is two-fold, first the opportunity to raise scholarship funds for our students at The Lincoln University and to secondly display the southern charm of our main campus,” said Lloyd, who is asking ladies in attendance to adorn themselves with hats, gloves and pearls while the gentlemen to don seersucker and linen suits or cool breeze shirts and slacks. Currently, Lincoln lacks the funds of wealthier institutions to compete for the best and brightest students, who typically chose the university. In addition, more than 96 percent of Lincoln’s students depend on financial assistance. Over the past several months, the university has enlisted the support of alumni, faculty & staff as well as corporate, foundation and faith-based community leadership to also encourage support while numerous solicitations on Dr. Cosby’s behalf have been made to support the campaign. “The Students First Campaign is an important effort and we look forward to our guests’ support as well as hope they take the opportunity to tour the campus and visit the newly-established Danjuma African Art Center, the Langston Hughes Memorial Library, our International Cultural Center and the many other historical or significant sites on campus,” said Lloyd. Guest reservations for The Chairlady’s Garden Party are $20 per person. To make reservations, email: alumni@lincoln.edu or call: 1–800-726-3014.last_img read more
