Madonna: It's just the beginning for streaming service Tidal

NEW YORK (AP) — Madonna, who co-owns Tidal with Jay Z, Beyonce and others, says it’s just the beginning for the streaming service that’s had some troubles since its launch in March.

“It’s just the beginning, so we’re working out a lot of kinks and hopefully we’re going to build something unique and amazing that’s going to attract a lot of people,” the 56-year-old singer said in a recent interview.

Tidal, which offers a basic subscription for $10 and a high-quality audio one for $20, hasn’t made a splash like its announcement did a few months ago, when Rihanna, Kanye West, Daft Punk, Nicki Minaj, Jack White and others stood onstage in solidarity along with Madonna, Beyonce and Jay Z.

Since then, Tidal announced a family plan and discount for students. The company also lost its interim CEO last month.

“It’s important that people understand we didn’t create Tidal, we didn’t put this together, we didn’t all join forces because we’re broke and we want more money. The idea is we want to support other artists and we want people to understand this is our heart, this is our work, and we want people to recognize that and we want other artists to have a chance,” Madonna said.

“We live in a society now where everybody just expects everything to be for free, but you don’t get a house for free; you have to pay somebody to build it,” she added.

Other artist-owners of Tidal include Arcade Fire, Alicia Keys, Usher, Chris Martin, Calvin Harris, deadmau5, Jason Aldean and J. Cole.

Björk : 50 ans déjà !
A quelques mois de célébrer son demi-siècle, la chanteuse islandaise fait face à de nombreuses difficultés personnelles et professionnelles.

Elle ne se fie pas aux apparences. Sa tournée mondiale Vulnicura Tour (qui passera par les Nuits de Fourvière à Lyon le 20 juillet, la Route du Rock à St Malo le 15 août et la Grande Halle de la Villette le 30 octobre), remplit les salles des Etats-Unis et d’Europe depuis le mois de mars et jusqu’en novembre. La rétrospective qui lui a été consacrée au Museum of Modern Art de New York (MoMA) jusqu’au 7 juin se savoure comme une récompense méritée après près de quarante ans de carrière (elle a sorti son premier album à l’âge de onze ans). Mais Björk sait bien que cela n'est que du trompe-l’œil.

Ces dernières années ont été particulièrement difficiles. D’abord à titre personnel, puisque l’Islandaise vit les dernières heures de la quarantaine. Elle fêtera ses cinquante printemps le 21 novembre. Un choc tant elle court encore après une forme d’excentricité toute adolescente : pour la couverture de l'édition de luxe de son dernier album, elle a choisi une œuvre d’art représentant une femme violette faisant le pont avec un vagin sur sa poitrine. Non mais Allô quoi ? Dans ce disque, elle déverse sa vie privée comme jamais elle ne se l’était permis. Présenté comme l’album de la rupture et de la guérison (du latin vulnus, blessure, et cura, soin), Vulnicura prend surtout soin de démolir l’image de son ex et père de sa fille, Isadora, Matthew Barney : “La famille a toujours été notre mission secrète et mutuelle, mais tu l’as abandonnée”, chante-t-elle entre autres.

Le couple qu’ils formaient depuis 2002 a explosé en 2013 après un sérieux coup de canif dans leur contrat de mariage. L'infidèle Matthew, depuis, a déposé une demande devant la cour suprême de Brooklyn, à New York, pour revoir le mode de garde de leur enfant. Il accuse son ex d’accaparer leur fille et de ne pas respecter la volonté de cette dernière : passer autant de temps (…)

Arsenal goalkeeper Szczesny joins AS Roma on loan

London, July 30 (IANS) English football club Arsenal has confirmed that its Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny will join Italian side AS Roma on loan for one season.


“Everyone at Arsenal would like to wish Wojciech well for his time in Italy,” Arsenal announced on Wednesday .

Szczesny, 25, lost his place as a starter during the last season to Colombia’s David Ospina, and so had to settle for playing only in the FA Cup and the Capital One Cup competitions, reports xinhua.

The arrival of the Czech international Petr Cech from Chelsea reduces the chances of the Polish goalie, who earned 181 caps with Arsenal since he arrived in London in 2006.

Periodistas de QR se pronuncian en contra de “Ley Borge”

CANCÚN, QR., julio 29 (EL UNIVERSAL).- Periodistas de Quintana Roo se pronunciaron en contra de la iniciativa de Ley para la Protección de Periodistas y Defensores de los Derechos Humanos, promovida por el gobernador de Quintana Roo, Roberto Borge, al considerar que, de aprobarse, se legalizará para la prensa, “el control piramidal” que el Poder Ejecutivo estatal, ejerce ya sobre el Legislativo y el Judicial.
“La iniciativa de ley que ingresó al Congreso, es sólo un reflejo de la situación en la que actualmente ejercemos el Periodismo en Quintana Roo y, por lo mismo, la XIV Legislatura estaría legalizando, con su aprobación, el control piramidal que el Poder Ejecutivo ejerce en esta entidad sobre los demás poderes, incluido, en nuestro caso, el llamado ‘Cuarto Poder’” que, en la práctica, debería ser el eje que equilibra la balanza entre el poder (político) y la sociedad civil, lo cual implica proteger también los derechos de las audiencia”, se lee en el posicionamiento.
El documento que contiene la postura de los periodistas comenzó a difundirse este jueves, a través de redes sociales, previo al “foro informativo de consulta” sobre las tres iniciativas que, en materia de protección al ejercicio periodístico y de activistas en Derechos Humanos, han presentado el diputado del Partido Acción Nacional (PAN), Sergio Bolio, el mandatario estatal, Roberto Borge y un trío de organizaciones de periodistas.
A modo de protesta por el contenido de la iniciativa gubernamental, anunciaron que se ausentarán del Foro, a fin de no avalar un proceso que consideran viciado y “una simulación”, lo mismo que la iniciativa mencionada.
“Eso significa –además de un atraso político de décadas en nuestro estado- que el Ejecutivo (estatal) estará facultado, por decreto, a conceder como un favor la Libertad de Expresión, pues al no considerarla como un derecho, niega que sea inherente a toda persona y de antemano, evade cumplir con sus obligaciones de protección y garantía de la Libertad de Expresión”, se indica en la postura de los periodistas.
La iniciativa gubernamental establece además que las y los periodistas deben ser acreditados como tales para ingresar a actos y edificios públicos, dejando a discreción de la autoridad, la emisión de dichas acreditaciones y, también a su arbitrio, el decidir quién es o no periodista en el estado.
“Los programas de acreditación pueden constituir una fuente de abuso por parte de las autoridades, pues éstas podrían negar (la acreditación) a periodistas que, por ejemplo, sigan una línea crítica al gobierno, restringiendo el Derecho a la Libertad de Información.
La postura de periodistas, critica además la tergiversación de los conceptos y alcances del secreto profesional y la cláusula de conciencia que, en la redacción de la iniciativa de ley, dejan en estado de indefensión a las y los comunicadores, además de restringir el ejercicio periodístico.
En torno a la cláusula de conciencia, la iniciativa deja en libertad al periodista, sólo de renunciar, ante la modificación de su información, la alteración de declaraciones o hechos por parte de su medio, sin que sea remunerado.
Esta cláusula nació con el objeto de defender la libertad de pensamiento y el código de ética del periodista, para que no sea objeto de sanciones, presiones o despidos al negarse a alterar la realidad o la verdad de los hechos, considerando que al ser obligado a faltar a dichos principios éticos, puede renunciar y esa renuncia equipararse a un despido injustificado y, como tal, remunerado.
“Este proyecto de ley, sin embargo, sencillamente nos decreta que renunciemos y ni siquiera determina la obligación de las empresas a una justa indemnización”, se alerta.

IRS Scandal Update: 'Smoking-Gun Proof' Of Harassment

Another installment of Lois Lerner emails has been released. Judicial Watch, which is using the Freedom of Information Act to force the IRS to produce the emails, believes that it has on its hands documents that “show that Lois Lerner and other top officials in the exempt organizations unit of the Internal Revenue Service, including soon-to-be acting IRS Commissioner Steve Miller, closely monitored and approved the controversial handling of tax-exempt applications by Tea Party organizations.” After sifting through 906 pages of documents, Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton announced, “This material shows that the IRS’ cover-up began years ago.” There is now “smoking-gun proof,” he says, that top IRS officials “unlawfully harassed taxpayers just to keep them from complaining to Congress about IRS’ targeting and abuse.” It’s no wonder, says Fitton, that the IRS “has had such little interest in preserving or finding Lois Lerner’s emails.” Judicial Watch has indicated that prying the documents from the nation’s tax-collecting service has been an arduous exercise. Most recently, the IRS waited until July 15 to respond to a July 1 court order to begin producing – every week – the nearly 1,800 newly recovered Lerner emails that Judicial Watch had asked for through a Freedom of Information Act request. If the roles were switched and Judicial Watch were being audited, it’s a good bet that the IRS would make sure the organization turned over – on time – all documents that the IRS was demanding. If Judicial Watch were not to comply, it would be punished. The IRS isn’t likely to suffer much from its reluctance to cooperate.
