first_img NEW YORK CITY — Mariah Carey welcomed in 2017 by saying “it is what it is” while experiencing technical difficulties while performing live in Times Square.Carey, one of the star headliners of ABC’s “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin Eve,” paced the stage without singing. It’s unclear what exactly were the technical difficulties, but the disaster was obvious as it unfolded live. She waved to the crowd, and encouraged the audience to sing along instead during the more than 2-minute long performance of “Emotions” and “We Belong Together.” “We didn’t have a soundcheck for this New Year’s,” she explained. While her background dancers danced around her, she knelt down and gestured the microphone to the audience members. When her dancers tried to incorporate her, she said “all right, just for laughs, let’s do the lift.”Finally, as the end of the performance approached, she said “I’m trying to be a good sport here. That was … amazing” as she gestured exasperatedly with the microphone.After the performance, she tweeted “sh– happens” and GIF of herself. While the 2 million people packed into Times Square for the performance swayed along, millions of Americans watching at home had plenty to say about the epic performance. I feel like mariah carey set the bar for 2017 really low so now we’re all gonna look good next year. Thank you queen of sacrifices— NICK (@iconickkk) January 1, 2017This is not the first time Carey has been caught lip-syncing in public: In 2015, she was roundly mocked for lip-syncing during a performance at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.

first_imgAUSTRALIA: The six Urbos trams which CAF is to supply for the light rail line under development in Newcastle will be equipped with onboard energy storage to permit catenary-free operation, New South Wales Minister for Transport & Infrastructure Andrew Constance has announced. ‘Removing the overhead wires will preserve the aesthetics of Newcastle’s heritage architecture and its unique character as light rail breathes new life into the city centre’, he said. Last year Downer EDI was awarded a contract to build the fixed infrastructure for the 2·6 km link between Wickham and Pacific Park, which is scheduled to open in 2019, replacing the former heavy rail line into the city centre. The completed line will be managed by a joint venture of Keolis and Downer EDI under a 10-year combined bus, ferry and tram operating and maintenance contract worth A$450m which is scheduled to start in July 2017.last_img read more

first_imgSWITZERLAND: The first of 11 electric multiple-units which Stadler is to supply to Südostbahn for Voralpen-Express services was unveiled in Erlen on June 6. Part of the Flirt family, the six eight-car and five four-car 160 km/h units will feature a new motor bogie design and lightweight trailer bogies which are designed for rapid replacement during maintenance.SOB placed the SFr170m order for the EMUs on June 27 2016. They are scheduled to enter service on the St Gallen – Luzern route from the December 15 2019 timetable change, replacing rolling stock which has been in operation for up to 40 years. In December 2017 a follow-on order was placed for a further 11 units to be used from December 13 2020 on services from Zürich and Basel to Locarno via the traditional Gotthard route which SOB is to operate in partnership with Swiss Federal Railways.Stadler said the EMUs for SOB would be ‘unique vehicles’ for ‘a unique route’, with ‘high-quality’ interior fittings tailored to the needs of different users. There are quiet zones where commuters can work as well as a family area, while leisure travellers will be able to enjoy the views from panoramic windows, stow skis and bicycles, and buy food and drink in two catering areas. The eight-car trains will have 359 seats, including 68 in first class, with the four-car sets having 197 seats, including 22 in first class. All seats will have power sockets.The fleet will be branded Traverso, a name based on an Italian verb meaning ‘to cross’, said SOB CEO Thomas Küchler. ‘We will be using the new vehicles to cross Switzerland from north to south and from east to west’, he explained. The copper colour scheme ‘symbolises value and solidity on the one hand, and is closely linked to the history of human progress on the other’, added Küchler. ‘The new trains represent progress for everyone: travellers, the SOB and Stadler.’Stadler Group CEO Thomas Ahlburg said the roll-out of the first train just two years after the contract signing had been the result of good teamwork between the manufacturer and the operator. ‘Both companies have a pragmatic approach to challenges’, he said. ‘A variety of innovations could be incorporated into the train thanks to the excellent co-operation between the two project teams. We are grateful to be able to work for companies like SOB so that we can prove together that state-of-the-art technology can be developed and implemented in record time in the Swiss workplace.’last_img read more

first_img Share NewsRegional US Returns Hundreds of Illegally Acquired Artifacts to Haiti by: – February 21, 2020 Some of the artifacts returned to Haiti by the FBI Art Crime Team.(Caribbean 360)  The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Art Crime Team has returned more than 450 cultural and historical artifacts to Haiti in the largest repatriation of art from the United State to the French-speaking Caribbean nation .Representatives from the US Embassy in Port-au-Prince, the US Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, Haiti’s Ministry of Culture and Communication, and the Bureau National d’Ethnologie of Haiti joined the FBI Art Crime Team for a repatriation ceremony at the Bureau of Ethnology in Port-au-Prince to return the items.The 479 Haitian artifacts were discovered in 2014, when the FBI Art Crime Team seized more than 7,000 items from the private collection of an amateur archaeologist Donald Miller, who had likely acquired the items in contravention of state and federal law and international treaties. This was the largest single recovery of culture property in FBI history.Miller amassed his collection over seven decades from locations around the world and kept it on display in his basement in Waldron, Indiana prior to turning it over to the FBI. Since 2014, the FBI Art Crime Team has been working to identify the rightful home of each item in the seized collection.The repatriation returns significant historical property, long missing, to Haiti.“The FBI recognizes the significant role artifacts like these play in a culture’s history and identity. We are honoured to return these pieces to the people of Haiti,” said Assistant Director Calvin Shivers of the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division.“The FBI is committed to returning stolen art and other objects of cultural and historical significance to the communities to which they belong.”The FBI’s work on this case is ongoing.
