Music is like a way of life for me

first_imgRead to know what Jubin Nautiyal has to say about the project, his approach towards music and a lot more: Coming from a small town, what have been your aspirations from music as a career? Music has been more like a way of living life for me. Even if I was not as big as I am now, even if was working in a corporate office, I would still be singing as a hobby. So the idea of pursuing music as a profession was a generic thought. Do you follow a fixed pattern of how a song has to be sung, or try, improvise and modify it at the time of your performance? Also Read – ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ has James Cameron’s fingerprints all over it: Arnold SchwarzeneggerWhen I go inside the studio to dub a song, I completely leave myself outside. I enter inside as a clean slate. I am not stuck on how I want to sing. Whenever I am working with composers, usually they give me a lot of freedom because they are obviously working with me for my style of singing. But I definitely try to understand how they are composing the song, how they are hearing it, which makes a lot of difference. ‘Cinema shapes the outlook of society’, do you believe it is true for music too? Do you think with music you can bring a change? Also Read – Salman pays tribute to Vinod Khanna on ‘Dabangg 3’ wrap upI believe many times music shapes the outlook of cinema. There are so many films made nowadays that are based on music. There are so many projects for which the director scores the music before going ahead with the script. So, it all goes hand in hand. Sometimes lyrics come first or the melody does. What matters is how everything blends together as a product. What’s new for the fans in your new MixTape project? This time, I have collaborated with Abhijit Vaghani and Shirley Setia. We have recreated three songs – ‘Ik Vaari’, ‘Tum Ho Toh’ and ‘Nadaan Parindey’. They all are nicely composed and we had fun shooting them. I hope my fans enjoy the presentation and music too. What do you feel about T-series’ initiative of recreating songs? I feel T-series’ MixTape is a new way to see Bollywood music all over again. In a time where recreations are enjoyed and celebrated, T-series is bringing about some songs which have had a crazy run when they were released. But again it is coming with such a different expression altogether, with different artists creating its own niche. It’s a unique concept. What are your future plans? I have always been an independent artist. So, this year I want to give some time to independent music.last_img read more

Saad Lemjerred Apologizes to Al Akhbar Photojournalist Who Accused Him of

Azrou – Saad Lemjerred, singer of the famous hit ‘Enty,’ has apologized to a photojournalist. He described the incident as being “regrettable” and thanked mediators for their contribution to end the dispute.“I express my deep regret about what happened, and I think my dispute with Morad Achabi could be set differently, without anger or tension… I do not feel any discomfort in apologizing to Mr.Achabi or to anyone else who could feel aggrieved by my behavior,” he said. The photojournalist accused the singer of aggression. Two versions clashed: Morad Achabi said that the artist attacked him and even tried to hit him with his car; on the other hand, Lemjerred said that he asked the journalist “politely” to delete the pictures.The singer’s agent denies Achabi’s version of the story and claims that the star is “a victim of his own success.” According to Sahifat Anas, the singer hit the reporter with his 4×4 before fleeing. “There is not even 5% of truth in this story. Saad Lemjerred was not the driver, and fortunately there are cameras in hotel Royal Mansour that filmed everything and can prove his innocence,” declared the agent.Achabi revealed the incident’s details to 360, explaining that it all began with a coincidence. “I went to the hotel for an interview when I came across Saad Lemjerred who was taking pictures with his fans. I then approached him to take a picture and introduce myself. When he learned that I am a journalist, he asked me to delete the photos, which I did immediately, but he insisted on deleting them himself,” he said.When the journalist said he couldn’t give him the camera, Lemjerred ordered his escorts to forcibly take it. The journalist eventually chased them to the car, trying to take his camera back, and that’s where the drama, according to his version, occurred.When asked about the details of the incident, Lemjerred’s agent preferred not to utter a word, explaining that “there will be soon a communication on the exact circumstances and consequences.” He describes the story of the journalist as nothing but “slandering and lies.”Who is telling truth?On June 27, Lemjerred’s agent published a press release in which he gives his full version of events, ensuring that the singer is not wanted by the police and that the journalist “had thrown himself on the car driven by another person,” and not Saad Lemjerred.“The star was surprised to see someone photographing him in such a curious and intrusive manner. He then asked him politely to delete some pictures in which he does not look so good. The photographer refused and started insulting Saad Lemjerred.”Edited by Katrina Bushko© Morocco World News.

CIBC head calls federal governments new housing measures prudent

CIBC head calls federal government’s new housing measures prudent by Andy Blatchford, The Canadian Press Posted Oct 12, 2016 11:00 am MDT Last Updated Oct 13, 2016 at 7:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email CIBC President and CEO Victor Dodig listens during the company’s annual and special meeting of shareholders in Vancouver, B.C., on Tuesday April 5, 2016. Dodig is supportive of a new package of federal measures aimed at easing risks in the country’s real estate system.THE CANADIAN PRESS/Darryl Dyck OTTAWA – The chief executive at one of Canada’s biggest banks is supportive of a new package of federal measures aimed at easing risks in the country’s real estate system.CIBC’s Victor Dodig said Wednesday that government changes announced last week, which include tightening mortgage lending rules, are “prudent” and will help shore up the housing system.“It’s always a balancing act making sure that the housing market and the construction sector stay robust and employment stays robust, making sure that the banks continue to lend prudently and that consumers are borrowing prudently,” Dodig told The Canadian Press in an interview after his appearance at the Public Policy Forum on economic growth in Ottawa.“So, I think it’s a prudent measure to continue to make sure there’s stability in the system.”Last week, Finance Minister Bill Morneau announced changes designed to slow the injection of foreign cash into Canadian housing markets and to stiffen eligibility rules on prospective borrowers, including stress tests on mortgages.The government also proposed consultations on a policy that could see banks shoulder more of the risk for mortgage defaults.Dodig said he expects the consultations around so-called “lender risk sharing” to be constructive.“It’s been a hallmark for us to always work together,” said the CEO of CIBC (TSX:CM).“I think the goal of the government is to make sure that the taxpayer is not on the hook to support financial institutions in a perceived or real way.”Morneau’s announcement last week came amid concerns that real estate costs in the hot Toronto and Vancouver markets are out of reach for many Canadians. Some fear foreign investment in these areas has helped drive up prices.Later Wednesday, Morneau was asked during his appearance at the same Ottawa conference about concerns over potential impacts the housing changes could have on Canadians, including first-time home buyers.He said impacts will always accompany decisions that are meant to deal with long-term risks.“We think those impacts will be relatively short-term in nature, we think they’ll be relatively modest and will contribute to a longer, positive growth pattern for the country,” he said.The changes, he added, will potentially delay purchases for some buyers until they save up more for a bigger down payment or they might force some people to buy a home that’s a slightly better fit for their income.Morneau said the government’s goal is to ensure long-term stability for the market in a low-rate environment, which has seen the overall indebtedness of Canadians become a “significant challenge.”On the economy, Dodig spoke about his efforts to promote the creation of a growth fund for Canadian small and medium-sized businesses, similar to one launched in the United Kingdom.He said the fund would seek to fill financing gaps by offering long-term capital to companies in their early stages — but those already past the initial venture capital funding stage.The fund would also include an expert advisory group to help firms access talent, important networks and mentorship advice from people who have expertise in commercializing and scaling businesses.Dodig said he’s received an increasing level of support for the idea from Morneau, Economic Development Minister Navdeep Bains and stakeholders in the private sector.He said he hoped to see it launched sometime next year.Follow @AndyBlatchford on Twitter read more

Ivanka Trump shifting gears heading to Washington

Ivanka Trump shifting gears, heading to Washington by Catherine Lucey, The Associated Press Posted Jan 11, 2017 9:28 pm MDT Last Updated Jan 12, 2017 at 8:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email DES MOINES, Iowa – Ivanka Trump plans to step aside from her executive roles at the Trump Organization and her lifestyle brand, but says she is confident both businesses will continue to “thrive.”In a post on her Facebook page Wednesday, Ivanka Trump said she would take a “formal leave of absence” from her executive positions at the Trump Organization and her lifestyle brand — which offers shoes, clothes and messages of female empowerment.President-elect Donald Trump said Wednesday that he would put control of his company in the hands of his sons and an executive, put his business assets in a trust and take other steps to isolate himself from his business.Ivanka Trump said her company will be run by the current president and a board of trustees. For now, she is not taking a role in her father’s administration, but her husband Jared Kushner will serve as a senior advisor.As the family moves to Washington, Ivanka Trump said she will be focused on getting her three children settled. But she also stressed her ongoing interest in issues affecting women and girls and said she would seek to determine the “most impactful and appropriate ways for me to serve our country.”An informal adviser to Ivanka Trump is expected to join the White House. Goldman Sachs partner Dina Powell will be leaving the bank to take a role in the Trump administration, said a source with knowledge of the matter who was not authorized to speak publicly and spoke on the condition of anonymity. The source said Powell is expected to focus economic issues and policies relating to women and will work with Ivanka Trump and Kushner.Powell declined to comment. The Trump transition team did not respond to questions.The Trump team has said Ivanka Trump will divest some assets and will receive fixed payments rather than a share of the profits from the Trump Organization. She will also not be involved in the company’s Washington hotel. No details have been released on her financial arrangement with the lifestyle brand.Transition officials also said Kushner will recuse himself from any matters impacting the Trump Organization. Richard Painter, who served as chief White House ethics counsellor for President George W. Bush, said separation will be key because “all of her assets and income are attributable to him.”Painter added that if Ivanka Trump continues to have a financial stake in her business, then Kushner must recuse himself from areas that impact it, like foreign trade.Ivanka Trump’s independent lifestyle brand promotes her image as a successful working mother and partners with companies to make the branded blush pink dresses and trendy booties offered in department stores.Just how successful the business will be without her actively involved is not clear. Brand licensing expert Michael Stone, chairman of the agency Beanstalk, said that celebrity-driven brands succeed best when consumers aspire to be like the personality and believe the person is involved with the developing the products.“I don’t know if just being a role model is enough to drive a product brand,” he said.He also noted that it takes time to develop a personal brand to the point that it survives without the person involved, like with Paul Newman’s Newman’s Own products or Perry Ellis fashion. While Ivanka Trump has been successful, she does not have that kind of longevity.“Is it going to fail completely, I doubt it,” said Stone. “But will it have the (same) growth curve?” FILE – In this Nov. 11, 2016, file photo, Ivanka Trump, daughter of President-elect Donald Trump, arrives at Trump Tower in New York.
