Fort Worth’s art scene gets a little bigger with the opening of the Art Room

first_imgReddIt Twitter Jacob Smithhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/jacob-smith/ Jacob Smith printFort Worth’s newest art gallery, the Art Room, opened its doors Saturday with the first exhibition titled “One.”The exhibition features work from 15 various local and international artists.The night was a huge success for the gallery’s co-curators Nathan Madrid and Katie Murray.“We honestly hope that every exhibition is as big of a turn out as this one,” said Murray.The gallery consists of a large room with adjacent white and cement brick walls.Thumping rhythmic beats from the house D.J. added to the atmosphere as crowds walked through inspecting images and enjoying conversation.The event was catered by Chile Pepper Grill and Denton’s Audacity Brew House.Though there was no defined theme for the exhibition, the pieces were meant to inspire a sense of realism. Submissions from Madrid, for example, showcased intense portraits of people across several ethnicities.One is the first of several exhibitions held in the Art Room located near Montgomery Plaza on West 7th street.Alison Jardine, a British artist currently working in Dallas, says she was thrilled to be a part of the project’s beginnings.“Given that it fits the theme, I do hope to work together again in the future,” said Jardine.Local artist and event spectator Maria Cervantez said she was excited for the opening of a small gallery in Fort Worth.“It’s great for local artists to have options closer to home to display their work,” said Cervantez.The gallery hours are by appointment only.

Get moving

first_imgFor more tips on how to keep children active, visit www.LetsMove.gov. Between homework, housework, school schedules and work schedules, it can be hard to fit in the 60 minutes of daily physical activity that children need to grow into healthy adults. Parents of young children, who cannot play outside unsupervised, may find it especially challenging. Often keeping children active means getting the whole family moving, which can be hard but definitely worth it. “When I get home, I really have to make myself make time to be active,” said Lori Purcell Bledsoe, a Georgia 4-H program coordinator who has a three and a six year old. “I am lucky to have children who enjoy being outside, but some days I don’t even get to change clothes before we are on the swing set. But it’s what’s best for them, and it’s what’s best for me … Playing and enjoying yourself is important for all of you and helps reduce the stress of having such a hectic life.” Playtime is not only important for children physically, but also mentally — it helps them develop decision making skills and helps them focus and sit still when they’re working on school work or on other quiet activities, said Diane Bales, a child development specialist with the UGA College of Family and Consumer Sciences. “It’s not an extra,” Bales said. “It’s part of what’s important for their physical and mental development.” Being active doesn’t mean having to go on power walks or playing organized sports. “For kids it’s not working out,” Bales said. “When we talk about children, we don’t talk about exercise; we talk about active play. Exercise implies it’s something outside of what we normally do, when playing is just what children do. They’re naturally active.” Anything that keeps a child’s attention and gets them moving is the “right type” of activity for them, Bledsoe said. Also, try not to say things like “it’s too hot outside”, which just makes them think about being hot. Sweating is good for all healthy people. Just be sure to offer plenty of water to keep children well-hydrated in the heat. Just dance One of the best ways to sneak in 20 or 30 minutes of activity into a child’s day is to crank up the stereo and let them dance while dinner is cooking. “If parents are acting silly and having fun, then the kids are more apt to mimic them and have a good time being silly, too,” Bledsoe said. Video games that require players to mimic dance moves and provide a ready-made soundtrack are a good way to start the party, but any upbeat music will work. If children are having a hard time getting their groove on, try a line dance — like the Cha-Cha Slide or the Hokey Pokey. These are great for young or shy children because the song itself gives the instructions for the dance, Bledsoe said. Encourage children who are reluctant to start out by watching. When they see the rest of the family having fun, they may decide to join in. Take it outside Another trick for sneaking in more activity is to move day-to-day activities outside. It’s important for families to eat dinner together, but that dinner doesn’t necessarily have to be around a kitchen table. A picnic dinner eaten at a nearby playground or pool gets everyone fed and gives children a few extra minutes of running around time. This is a good way to carve out some unstructured playtime into your child’s day. Unstructured play is important for teaching them to make decisions. Bledsoe suggests keeping it simple, like sandwiches or maybe a rotisserie chicken with fruit slices, carrot sticks and milk. “Also, you don’t have such a mess to clean up because you can use paper plates,” she said. Keep it simple Remember that the recommended 60 minutes per day doesn’t have to happen all at once. There are plenty of other games and activities that parents and children can play together, too. Simple things like a quick dog walk or a 15 minute game of hide and seek or tag can add up quickly. It’s just about training yourself to look for opportunities to move during your daily routine and then taking advantage of them. Here are a few more ways to stay active as a family from LetsMove.gov. Give children toys that encourage physical activity like balls, kites and jump ropes. Limit TV time and keep the TV out of a child’s bedroom. If possible, walk to school a few days a week. Get in the habit of taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Walk around the block after a meal. Make a new house rule: no sitting still during television commercials.last_img read more

Terry relishing Rodgers reunion

first_img Terry continued: “When Jose (Mourinho) was there he was always around and a couple of times I was left out the side or injured. “He (Rodgers) did a nice little video of me scoring goals, tackles and had a 15, 20-minute chat with me. “At the time it was something nobody had ever done and it just goes to show his man-management and how well he’s doing and how well he’ll do in the future. “It’s little things like that which as a player it really gives you a boost when you’re down. He was a real gentleman.” Terry expected Rodgers to be a successful manager. “He was around quite a lot and fed off Jose and obviously learnt a lot from him,” the former England captain added. “You could see he definitely had it in him to go on. He had a great rapport with players in and around the training ground on a daily basis. He speaks different languages, which is obviously an added bonus for him.” Press Association John Terry is looking forward to renewing Brendan Rodgers’ acquaintance on Sunday but hopes Chelsea can claim a crucial victory in their Champions League qualifying quest at Liverpool.center_img Much of the attention will be on Rafael Benitez’s return to Anfield but Rodgers has a Chelsea connection, having coached the youth team at Stamford Bridge before senior management roles at Watford, Reading, Swansea and now Liverpool. “I know Brendan very well,” Terry said. “He’s a great manager and was brilliant for myself and the other players. I can only speak highly of him. I’m looking forward to going back and seeing him but three points is a must for us again.” last_img read more

Beckles urges WICB to implement Patterson Report reform

first_imgVice-Chancellor of the University of the West Indies, Professor Sir Hilary Beckles, has urged the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) to implement the most crucial reform aspect of the Patterson Report.Telling the WICB president Dave Cameron that reform was the “duty of his generation”, Sir Hilary pointed to Carlos Brathwaite’s heroics of four sixes off the first four balls of the final over in the men’s final which fired West Indies to victory over England and stressed that it was now left to the regional governing body to complete the process.”All that is now required is for the WICB, president and directors, to complete the over,” Sir Hilary said in a letter to media.”There are two balls left to face, one is to accept the governance reform that calls for the Council of Stakeholders as set out in the Patterson Report, and the other is to recognise that by accepting the governance interdependence of cricket and society is not to lose autonomy.”The players have done their job on the field. It is now for the president, whose heart resides in cricket as much as any one of us, to do his and lead his board boldly into the rest of the decade with public support and popular legitimacy.”The Patterson Report, commissioned by the WICB and authored by former Jamaica Prime Minister P.J. Patterson, was produced in 2007, but its main recommendations have been ignored by the WICB.Among these proposals are the implementation of a Council of Stakeholders, comprising 23 members and, according to the Report, “representative of a wide cross section of stakeholders and will determine policies and strategies and provide guidance for the development of West Indies cricket”.This council would appoint the president, vice-president and the executive directors.West Indies cricket is being destroyed by “internal conflict and acrimony.”Without this reform, West Indies runs the risk of being razed to the ground by internal conflict and acrimony,” he pointed out.”The golden monument we have all built as a tribute to our cultural tenacity and collective wisdom must come first. This is your task, Mr President. It’s a duty of your generation.”Noticeably, Sir Hilary made no reference to the most recent Caricom-commissioned Governance Report, which last year called for the “immediate dissolution” of the WICB.Speaking last November after the report was made public, Sir Hilary said he believed institutions like UWI and the WICB needed to be “preserved for posterity”, but also adapt to changing times.- CMClast_img read more

Still wet Between the Rows

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ben Klick, Stark CountyWe finally got enough dry weather to get the straw wrapped up and we got some manure hauled to make things look and smell better around here. We got an inch of rain over the weekend — seven-tenths earlier today and three-tenths last night.The first two weeks of July we had 7.5 inches and since then we have probably had about 2 inches, so it has been plenty wet. This last inch, though, was nice and slow. It all soaked in.We are getting to the point where our soybeans all need sprayed but it has been so wet we haven’t gotten to do it. If we don’t get in soon we’ll have spots that will be a mess. We have a lot of Japanese beetles. The beans planted May 22 are all flowering and it is a nice stand.The corn all looks good for what it has been through and I think it will be a better crop than last year. We have had plenty of heat units so far and plenty of moisture. Most of it is in R1, some is in VT still and some is in V10. This week we’ll be in 100% full tassel but some of the later stuff is not there yet.Some of the dairy guys were hauling manure making first cutting when we were planting corn and beans and they didn’t plant most of their corn until the first week of June. They have some of the nicest corn around. They missed out on all of the cold, wet weather. That corn took off.We have calves we are starting on feed and we moved them yesterday and our path into the pasture is nothing but a mud hole and where they tramp around the feed bunk and the hay ring is pretty muddy. I’ll take a little wetness in the pasture, though, instead of dry weather and using up all of my hay.We should be halfway through our second cutting hay by now and we are just getting started. Last week we were baling straw when we should have been making hay. We have a good horse market up here and I don’t know if this will make good horse hay. When it finally dries out we don’t hardly know which direction to go.For the rest of this week’s reports, click here.last_img read more

YouTube’s New Award Show Is Google’s Trojan Horse Into Social TV

first_imgThe web’s thriving metropolis of video weirdness will soon host its very own real, live award show: The YouTube Music Awards. The event, coming on November 3, will take place on stage in New York and will be livestreamed around the world, in true YouTube fashion. Hosted by indie film darling Jason Schwartzman and directed by the perennially cool Spike Jonze, known best for his edgy music videos, YouTube is trying to out-hip the hip—and with big name guests like Lady Gaga, Eminem and Arcade Fire, it can probably succeed.But looking cool and putting together a star-studded show is merely the sound and fury. In recent days, Twitter and Facebook have both made some major plays in the social TV analytics space, which is red hot right now. Unlike those companies, Google can leverage its immense resources to craft its own Huge Live Event, broadcast over YouTube, soaking up Google+ user data. That could prove that not only is the third-most trafficked website in the world as relevant as ever—but that YouTube could be the most relevant force in the social TV space.That is, if it plays its cards right. Google Takes On … Everyone, ReallyForget Facebook and Twitter for a minute, if you will. With the YouTube Music Awards, Google’s big social TV move could have some symbolic collateral damage, namely to the stalwarts of the entertainment industry.MTV’s VMAs (don’t be caught dead saying “Video Music Awards”) have offered teens and twentysomethings a hip music awards alternative to the considerably more (literally) buttoned-up Grammys since 1984. If Miley Cyrus is any indication (and she is), the VMAs remain relevant after almost 30 years.But YouTube is more relevant. And because its content is user-created, that won’t be changing any time soon. YouTube is a strange confluence of mainstream artists (and their major labels) and Internet quirkiness ripe for memedom. Its unbridled randomness still thrives, and brands that manage to harness the social network’s odd energy and penchant for virality can thrive there. YouTube has sticking power—and its award show, just like the MTV VMAs 30-year-tenure, might too. Social TV Gets Hotter And HotterBeyond being big business for themselves, major award shows are big business for social networks, which see massive spikes in usage concurrent with live broadcast events. In 2012, the Grammy Awards drummed up 13 million “social media comments” on Twitter and Facebook, as tracked by social analytics firm Bluefin. The top three entertainment events that drummed up the most social buzz as of 2012 were music award shows. (That record was later bested by the 2012 election and the 2013 Super Bowl.)

There’s major money in insightful social data around viewing habits—and the more insight you can stockpile, the better. Twitter also partnered with Nielsen, the traditional TV ratings giant to add Twitter’s social TV analytics as a complement to Nielsen’s traditional viewership ratings. Meanwhile, Facebook will start selling its own social entertainment chatter to major networks like ABC, FOX, NBC and CBS, doled out in surely lucrative weekly reports.YouTube’s Social TV TrifectaThe intersection of streaming entertainment events and realtime social media activity is big business for the advertisers and content makers who can crack the code. And clearly, when it comes to social media, music award shows are some of the buzziest of all.If you’re Google, you’re sitting on a three ingredient formula for success: resources sufficient to craft your very own hyped-up award show, the online network to broadcast it over and, bettered by its recent splicing of Google+ DNA into YouTube comments, the social network to control the conversation.That’s not just major brand buzz and a ton of traffic—it’s a data goldmine.last_img read more

Indian rower Dushyant Chauhan clinches bronze at Asian Games

first_imgDushyant Chauhan won a bronze medal to take India’s tally to 12 medals at the ongoing Asian GamesRower Dushyant Chauhan was the lone bright spot after the shooters drew a blank as India managed just one bronze medal to slip to the 14th position in overall standings on the fifth day of competitions in the 17th Asian Games on Wednesday.Dushyant was the only athlete to manage a podium finish as he grabbed a bronze in the men’s lightweight single sculls event on what turned out to be a mixed day for the Indian contingent.The strong shooting squad, which had accounted for the bulk of medal collection so far, drew a blank today which led to India dropping one place in the medal table.With the addition of just one bronze today, India took their tally to 12 (1 gold, 1 silver, 10 bronze). Powerhouse China continued to lead the pack with 99 medals(50-25-24) followed by hosts South Korea with 70 medals(24-23-23) and Japan’s 64(18-23-23).The badminton and squash teams had a good day in their respective matches but the women’s hockey team lost 1-2 to China in a preliminary match.Early in the day, Dushyant, hailing from Haryana and belonging to the Bengal Engineering Group in Roorkie, led from the 500m till the last 200m in the 2000m race before strong northerly winds and rain put paid to his gold medal hopes as he fell behind two others and finished third by clocking 7:26.57.Chauhan was second behind gold-medallist Lok Kwan Hai by just under two seconds in the first 500m and then caught up with his rival before overtaking him in the course of the next 500m and looked assured of a gold before inclement weather hampered his chances.advertisementHe not only lost the gold medal, but also the silver as the host country’s Lee Hakbeom, who was third with 500m left, also surged past the Indian rower to clinch the second spot in 7:25.95.It was the first medal of the day after a fruitless stint at the shooting range for India and the 10th bronze in the Games.After scooping six medals, including a gold won by Jitu Rai, on the first four days of the Asian Games, Indian shooters misfired at the Ongnyeon pistol and rifle range here.last_img read more
