Lil Wayne stands by his 'no such thing as racism' comment.
 
02:50
(12 Oct 2016) LIL WAYNE EXPLAINS HIS 'NO SUCH THING AS RACISM' COMMENT Lil Wayne understands why some people criticized him for saying racism is over, but claims people don't see it from his perspective. The rapper got some backlash last month when he told Fox Sports 1's "Undisputed" that there was "no such thing as racism" because his concert audiences had a lot of white fans. He also said millennials knew that racism wasn't cool. When asked on Tuesday to expand on his thoughts, Lil Wayne told The Associated Press that one of the reasons he feels that way is because a white police officer saved his life when he was 12 years old after he accidentally shot himself in the chest. "Yeah, he was a cop, and my life was saved by a white man. I don't know what racism is. I know a good (expletive) named Uncle Bob, though." Carter said. The Grammy-winning rapper said he was lying on the floor when police broke down the door, stepping over his body looking for guns and drugs. But one man stopped and chastised the others for leaving him. "He was white as snow. Them (expletive) that hopped over me were blacker than me," Carter said. Carter says the man known as "Uncle Bob" personally took him to the hospital and stayed with him. "(He) stood there and waited until the doctor said 'He's gonna make it,'" Carter said. Still, he acknowledged that despite what he told Skip Bayless on "Undisputed," there is such thing as racism. However, he says when he looks out from the stage, he sees all colors. "When I open my eyes on stage and when I, at a Lil Wayne show when I come from under the stage. Man, it's not - it's the world out there. It's not a certain part or a certain kind or a certain culture or whatever of people, it's people - those people out there in that crowd. They make, quote unquote, and they make, quote unquote, Lil Wayne." He added: "That's who I happen to be, and I'm sorry I'm sorry if people can't understand. But I understand why they don't understand, it's because they don't come from the bottom of the stage and look at 20 to 30-thousand people. They don't get that opportunity. And I'm blessed to have that opportunity, so with that said I can only be honest with such a thing. I have never witnessed racism." Carter made the comments while promoting the recently published "Gone Till November: A Journal of Rikers Island," a revealing account of his eight-month jail sentence in 2010 after a gun charge.

He needs tons of carbs to have that energy to get through the game because – I can't remember – I think they run... I can't remember how many miles it is, but it's a bunch of miles that it equivilates (sic) to by the end of the game and so we always do a pasta dish and then we have some sort of lean protein whether it's ground turkey or ground chicken, chicken breast, some sort of fish, but it's always super lean."

I mean, it was salty Cream of Wheat. Gushers, lined up on a plate as garnish. It was like, it was cute but I couldn't eat it. But I cooked for him first. I remember I made him a baked chicken dish with some of his dad's famous seasoning that he likes to use and he loved it. So maybe that's the reason why we're married I don't know (laughs)! I hope it's more than that." AP Images San Francisco, 6 Feb. 2016 5. Still image - Stephen Curry, left, and wife Ayesha Curry, arrive at a Super Bowl party AP Entertainment New York, 20 Sept. 2016 6.

We have a pretty busy lifestyle and sometimes I forget or I just don't have time to go to the grocery store and so I'm left saying, 'What's in my refrigerator? What's in my pantry?' One day my daughter really wanted pancakes. We didn't have the pre-mixed stuff. All we had was flour, a couple eggs and so off the top of my head – I don't know why I didn't use my phone to Google a pancake recipe – but off the top of my head I just threw stuff together, put it in the pan and then realized I left out the thickening agent, what was going to fluff that pancake up. And it was the consistency of a crepe. But they were so delicious and that's how my pancrepes came about. The whole family loves them. They're great." AP Images Oakland, Calif., 19 June 2015 7.

(8 Jul 2016) DAVID GILMOUR RETURNS TO ANCIENT AMPHITHEATER IN POMPEII 45 YEARS AFTER PLAYING THE SITE WITH PINK FLOYD David Gilmour returns to ancient amphitheater in Pompeii 45 years after playing the site Pink Floyd. That performance was captured as a documentary. Gilmour played more than 20 songs, old and new, in front of a small crowd of less than 2000 people. The new songs were mainly taken from his new album "Rattle That Lock." The Pompeii amphitheater dates back to around 70 B.C. and was buried by the Vesuvius eruption in 79 A.D. When Pink Floyd played there in 1971, it was the first performance with an audience since the gladiators. Gilmour will play Pompeii on Thursday and Friday. He was awarded with the honorary citizenship. Gilmour had long planned to return to Pompeii and his touring Europe in various historical venues.

William, Kate, George and Charlotte spend Christmas with the Middletons

(25 Dec 2016) WILLIAM AND KATE SPEND CHRISTMAS WITH THE MIDDLETON FAMILY The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended a Christmas Day church service at St Mark's Church in Englefield, Berkshire on Sunday (25 DEC.). The royal couple is celebrating Christmas with the Middleton family in nearby Bucklebury, instead of with the Queen at Sandringham. They arrived at the church with Prince George and Princess Charlotte. Kate's mother and father - Carole and Michael Middleton - sister Pippa, and brother James also attended the service. A heavy cold kept Queen Elizabeth II from attending the traditional Christmas morning church service near her Sandringham estate in rural Norfolk, England. It is extremely rare for Elizabeth to miss the service, which is a cornerstone of the royal family's Christmas celebrations and brings the monarch into contact with local residents who gather outside for a glimpse of her.

Randy Travis stuns by singing after stroke at Country Music Hall of Fame induction
 
05:03
(17 Oct 2016) RANDY TRAVIS STUNS, SINGS AT COUNTRY HALL OF FAME Country singer Randy Travis found his distinctive voice three years after a life-threatening stroke and sang "Amazing Grace" during his induction Sunday (16 OCT. 2016) into the Country Music Hall of Fame. The Grammy-winning baritone singer battled back the stroke in 2013 to sing again during the medallion ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee. He was inducted along with fiddler Charlie Daniels and record producer Fred Foster. Fellow artists including Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton, Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley, Garth Brooks and more honored the three inductees with musical tributes. But it was Travis' singing that brought a stunned silence and tears to the crowd after years of rehabilitation and therapy to regain his voice. Mary Davis-Travis, his wife, spoke about the numerous procedures and surgeries to save his life and a six-month stay in the hospital after a viral infection caused his stroke. "Randy stared death in the face, but death blinked," Davis-Travis said. "Today God's proof of a miracle stands before you." The 57-year-old singer was honored for being the first country artist whose debut album "Storms of Life" went platinum in its first year and he ushered in a wave of neo-traditional singers like Alan Jackson, Clint Black and Brooks in the 1990s. Jackson, who performed "On the Other Hand," talked about going out on tour with Travis in the early '90s and compared him to Elvis. "When he sang, the women were screaming and fainting and it was crazy," Jackson said. "I loved it. Someone singing real country music and having that effect and selling all those records, it just made me so happy." Daniels, the fiddler player behind the hit song "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," was honored for his multi-genre style blending Southern rock, bluegrass, gospel and country music. "A plaque on this wall is not just another award or accolade," Daniels said. "It's a page in a history book. An unending history book." Jamey Johnson performed his song, "Long Haired Country Boy," while Trace Adkins performed "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," with fiddler Andrea Zonn. Foster ran the influential Monument Records, which helped launch the careers of Roy Orbison, Willie Nelson as well as Parton and Kristofferson. Kristofferson sang his iconic song "Me and Bobby McGee," which Foster helped co-write and produce, while Parton sang "Dumb Blonde," from her debut album produced by Foster. Parton praised Foster for giving her a shot and still being a gentleman when Porter Wagoner "stole" her away to be on his television show. Vince Gill presented him with the medallion and noted Foster was a lover of great songs and a champion of unique singers. "But everyone of us needs a champion," Gill said. "And you look like at a man like Fred Foster and there's a man that has been a champion for all these years." The 85-year-old producer is still currently working and most recently produced a tribute album to Ray Price by Nelson.

His way - Home Sinatra built from the ground up
 
05:27
(7 Dec 2015) LEAD-IN: It's best wishes and birthday greetings for Ol' Blue Eyes. December 12 marks famed late crooner Frank Sinatra's 100th birthday. The Rat Pack singer lived in various locations during his 82 years. His home in the Palm Springs Desert is now a popular rental property, frequented by music fans and Sinatra obsessives. STORY-LINE: Like so many things in his life, Frank Sinatra did it his way. The Twin Palms Estate, set among the Palm Springs Desert, is the only house Ol' Blue Eyes ever built completely from the ground up. Today, architectural historians say it's the personification of desert contemporary modernism. In 2011, it was designated as a Class 1 Historical Site by the City of Palm Springs. It's also a popular tourist destination, in an area once known as a playground for the rich and famous. According to William Sayegh, a member of the concierge team at Beau Monde Villas, Sinatra was attracted to the area and felt it was "his" spot in the world. The singer and actor commissioned the retreat at the height of his early fame after he made his first million dollars. He originally paid 150,000 US dollars for the air-conditioned desert property. It remained his primary home from 1948 till 1957. Sinatra named it the 'Twin Palms Estate' after the twin palm trees on the front lawn. They still remain there to this day. "One of the great aspects of this house is that Frank Sinatra bought the empty land and had the house built," says Sayegh. "And he was flying around in his plane looking for a site and saw the two twin palm trees in the backyard which are still here and decided this is where he wanted to build his house. He bought the two lots of land and built this wonderful estate with a swimming pool on one lot of land and the house of the other lot of land." Sinatra arrived in the desert town in 1947, with him he brought the allure and sex appeal of glamorous Hollywood. Soon Palm Springs became a jet set destination for Hollywood's royalty. Neighbours included comedian and actor Jack Benny, actor Cary Grant and singer Al Jolsen. The sprawling one floor estate boasts two addresses - the swimming pool and cabana are on one lot of land, the house on the other. Spanning 45-hundred square feet (4,180 square metres), the address boasts four bedrooms, seven bathrooms and a swimming pool shaped like a piano. Now operated by Beau Monde Villas as a luxury rental property, it's claimed to be the most popular destination to rent in Palm Springs. Architectural historian, Robert Imber, gets a kick out of the home's design. Specifically tailored to Sinatra's taste for Georgian architecture, he says. "He wanted a Georgian styled house. He was very knowledgeable of architecture - loved architecture apparently. They gave him drawings both for Georgian and for contemporary. The mid-century architecture, importantly, was simply the architecture of the day, the contemporary architecture of the day," says Imber, who is also the owner of Palm Springs Modern Tours. "He was then married to Ava Gardner, chose this, and lived here for a good number of years. When this house was built, it was in the middle of nowhere, open desert as far as you could see. There was a landing strip someplace nearby. You flew you're plane out, you looked for Frank's house in the desert and walked over for cocktails." The property's current owners have gone to great lengths to keep as much of the home as possible, they've even added some extra Sinatra memorabilia. Sinatra himself designed the master suite. Unique features include a piano-shaped swimming pool, Sinatra's original Valentino recording equipment, a self-playing piano and period furniture from the era. Sinatra and Gardner were married in 1951 and divorced in 1957.

Ryan Reynold's daughters steal the show during the actor's Walk of Fame ceremony
 
05:16
(15 Dec 2016) RYAN REYNOLD'S ADORABLE DAUGHTERS STEAL THE SHOW DURING HIS WALK OF FAME CEREMONY In a rare family appearance, Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively and the couple's two young daughters posed front and center at the "Deadpool" actor's star ceremony Thursday on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. "I want to thank my wife, Blake, who is sitting right there, who is everything to me. You are the best thing, the best thing that has ever happened to me. Second only to this star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It's the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Cut me some slack here. You make everything better - I mean absolutely everything in my life better. You have given us two of the most incredible children that I could ever hope to have. You've made me the father of my dreams when I thought I only had fun uncle potential. So thank you. I love you," Reynolds told the crowd outside the Dolby Theatre. He also dedicated his star to his father. "The last thing I'll say before I get off the stage is a tricky one about my dad. He's no longer with us. He never made things easy on anyone, especially himself. But he would have got a real kick out of this. So this is also for him. Thank you," he said. Toddler James stole the show when she rushed the stage, grabbed a microphone and hammed it up for the cheering crowd. "She sure did," said Reynolds in an interview after the event. "She's very good at that, yeah. She got pretty excited. She saw a microphone. It's like a moth to a flame." The couple's other daughter was born in September and her name still hasn't been made public. Actress Anna Faris was also on hand to celebrate her former "Just Friends" co-star. "I can't wait for the day I get to work with you again on screen. And I'm so happy for your incredibly wonderful and beautiful family and your two gorgeous children that I might take home later today," she joked. Reynolds plays a wise-cracking assassin in "Deadpool" and its upcoming sequel. He was nominated for a Golden Globe award for best actor in a film comedy or musical, a rare nomination for a superhero portrayal. "I don't really know what it means. It's incredible for the film to be recognized, you know? The individual recognition is great and I love that and I take it, but the fact that 'Deadpool,' the film as a whole, was nominated in its own category, that's extra special because that sort of breaks the glass ceiling for that genre that we're all pretty pumped up about," said Reynolds of the nods. The R-rated superhero romp also scored a nomination for best film, comedy or musical. The Globes awards ceremony is Jan. 8.

"I just feel that he's moved on; he's had a great life, he´s given so much and I am very grateful and honoured to have known him," Green said. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

Chaka Khan talks about the endurance of Prince's music backstage at the Prince tribute concert
 
01:46
(14 Oct 2016) CHAKA KHAN: PRINCE WAS A KINDRED SPIRIT Chaka Khan described Prince as a "kindred spirit" backstage at a tribute concert Thursday (13 OCT. 2016) in Minneapolis for the late singer. "We thought very much alike. We were very kindred in many, many ways and musically I like to think that god provided, you know, a kindred spirit for me to actually work with and to get to know and love for a short while." Khan also spoke of Prince's musical legacy. "He did great work and that's the brand that's gonna live forever. There will always be somebody that says, 'Well, that sounds real Prince-like, you know what I'm saying?' His name will come up through millenia." Khan, Stevie Wonder, Tori Kelly, Anita Baker and Doug E. Fresh are some of the artists taking part in the music event. Just before show time, a concert publicist announced that singer Christina Aguilera canceled her scheduled appearance as she fights a "vocal illness." Singer Jessie J will replace Aguilera in the lineup for the sold-out concert at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. Pop star John Mayer bowed out of the concert earlier, citing a "change of schedule." Prince died in April of an accidental painkiller overdose. The singer of hits including "Purple Rain," ''Let's Go Crazy" and "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World" was 57.

Pussy Riot and their supporters attacked by Cossack militia CONTAINS PROFANITIES
 
02:12
(19 Feb 2014) Cossack militia attacked the Pussy Riot punk group with horsewhips on Wednesday as the group tried to perform under a sign advertising the Sochi Olympics. Six group members - five women and one man - donned their signature ski masks and were pulling out a guitar and microphone when at least 10 Cossacks and other security officials moved in. The women were chanting in Russian: "Putin will teach you to love the Motherland" when the Cossacks started to brutally disperse them. One Cossack appeared to use pepper spray, another whipped several group members while others ripped off their masks and threw the guitar in a garbage can. Police arrived and questioned witnesses, but no one was arrested. The Cossacks violently pulled masks from women's heads, beating group member Nadezhda Tolokonnikova with a whip as she lay on the ground. The incident lasted less than three minutes and one Pussy Riot member, a man wearing a bright yellow vest, was left with blood on his face, saying he had been pushed to the ground. Pussy Riot, a performance-art collective involving a loose membership of feminists who edit their actions into music videos, has become an international flashpoint for those who contend that Russian President Vladimir Putin's government has exceeded its authority, particularly restricting human rights, particularly for the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender)community. The group gained international attention in 2012 after barging into Moscow's main cathedral and performing a "punk prayer" in which they entreated the Virgin Mary to save Russia from Putin, who was on the verge of returning to the Russian presidency for a third term. Two members of the group, Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina, were sentenced to two years in prison, but were released in December under an amnesty bill seen as a Kremlin effort to assuage critics before the Olympics. On Tuesday, two members of the group were briefly detained in Sochi, but not arrested. The group has called for a boycott of the Sochi Olympics and has insisted that any world leader coming to Sochi would be giving tacit approval of Putin's heavy-handed policies. The Cossacks have been used since last year as an auxiliary police force to patrol the streets in the Krasnodar province, which includes the Winter Olympic host city.

Child prodigy astounds with musical abilities
 
02:38
(18 Nov 2016) Alma Deutscher is a composer, virtuoso pianist and concert violinist who wrote her first sonata five years ago and whose first full opera will have its world premiere in Vienna next month. All of which is very special because she is just 11 years old. While loving and living music, the child prodigy from Dorking, England, is also busy scraping her knees tree climbing, meeting friends on the playground, swimming or any number of other activities that an 11-year old would enjoy. But when focused on her passion, she's all business. Rehearsing "Cinderella" recently, Alma gave instructions and sung phrases in a clear child's soprano, switching from piano to violin and back as she accompanied the soloists. It all seemed effortless. And the energy doesn't stop flowing off stage. Alma doesn't even try to sit still, gesturing and fidgeting as she talks about "Cinderella." She says she's extremely excited at the prospect of the December 29 premiere. Alma's heroine in her version of the popular story is a composer, the step-mother is an opera director, the two step-sisters are haughty divas. And the prince is a poet who finds Cinderella through a melody she wrote. Her future plans include composing a piano concerto, and a symphony. She has already started on a book which she wants made into a film, complete with her own score.

Singer-songwriter Lissie goes it alone after being dropped by record label
 
03:54
(25 Nov 2016) SINGER-SONGWRITER LISSIE GOES IT ALONE AFTER BEING DROPPED BY RECORD LABEL Lissie Maurus - or Lissie to her fans - was well on her way to making it big a decade ago. She had a deal with Columbia Records U.K. and a first album that went gold in the United Kingdom and Norway. The record sold well, but when her second L.P. wasn't a commercial success, she found herself without a record deal and at a crossroads. What kind of artist did she want to be? Was her pursuit of fame really worth it? Lissie opted for the uncharted territory of the independent artist - based from an Iowa farm, no less. It is a more viable business model in this age when singers can reach potential fans more easily via music streaming services and online sales. But there certainly are no guarantees. After Columbia Records U.K. dropped her, Lissie says she felt a little like she'd failed. But she said she also was relieved. Now she could do things her way. By mid-2015, she took what savings she had and bought the farm she now calls home. "I think some people were like, 'Well that's weird that you're going to, like, leave southern California and go live on a farm in Iowa, but OK.' You know, but I just knew, this is what I have to do. I have a gut feeling about this," she said. "I kind of just told everyone, like, 'I need to re-evaluate my life. I'm not going to stop making music. But I need to rethink how I want to go about it.'" By the time she moved to the farm, Lissie had already written some new songs. So she called producer and bass player Curt and together, they wrote the title track on her latest album, "My Wild West." The record came out in February and was well reviewed. Lissie also recently released a live acoustic album, recorded at Union Chapel in North London. Admittedly, she says, the traveling can be brutal. She's been touring in the United States and Europe much of this year. But because her overheads are low, most of what she makes in ticket and merchandise sales is hers. Financially, she says, this could be her best year yet. "I own all my new music, and I can go out and tour with just an acoustic guitar and sell out shows and, you know, come home and be like, 'OK, now I can put in a wood burning stove in my house,'" she smiled. Lissie's third album "My Wild West" is available now.

David Bowie's musical 'Lazarus' set for European premiere
 
04:05
(3 Nov 2016) BOWIE MUSICAL 'LAZARUS' SET TO OPEN IN LONDON The European premiere of David Bowie's musical 'Lazarus,' which played a sold-out Off-Broadway run earlier this year in New York, is set for November 8. Original New York cast members Michael C. Hall, Michael Esper, and Sophia Anne Caruso are reprising their roles in director Ivo van Hove's production. Bowie died in January from cancer. He was able to see the New York show before his death at age 69. The play starring "Dexter" and "Six Feet Under" actor Michael C. Hall, was a hit since its previews and Bowie's death made tickets even harder to come by. Bowie wrote the musical with Irish playwright Enda Walsh as a sequel to the 1963 novel "The Man Who Fell to Earth" by Walter Tevis, which inspired the 1976 film of the same name that he starred in. Michael C Hall stars as Newton, the character famously portrayed by David Bowie in the 1976 screen adaptation directed by Nicolas Roeg. The play focuses on Newton as he remains still on Earth - a 'man' unable to die. The set list comprises some of Bowie's biggest hits _ including "Changes," "Heroes," "Absolute Beginners" and "Life on Mars" _ as well as new songs like "Lazarus," taken from Bowie's "Blackstar" album, released shortly before his death. Lazarus is scheduled to run in London through 22 January 2017.

Country stars talk about Shania Twain's influence at CMT Artists of the Year show
 
04:35
(20 Oct 2016) FEMALE ARTISTS SING PRAISES FOR SHANIA TWAIN Country star Shania Twain is the most successful female country artist and has influenced singers in all genres. Twain received the Artist of a Lifetime award at the CMT Artists of the Year show in Nashville, Tennessee, on Wednesday (19 OCT. 2016). From R&B singer Jill Scott to fellow country star Carrie Underwood, women have long admired Twain's powerful pop country songs and fashion style. Twain herself said the honor feels like she's achieved success in her career. "I sort of feel like I have arrived at a point in my life that is being recognized and respected and appreciated," Twain said. "And that is just this wonderful feeling of relief that I have accomplished something to this level. So it's a relief and it feels really good." Scott, pop singer Meghan Trainor and country singer Kelsea Ballerini performed a medley of her hits for her. "Well, it's a huge compliment first of all because all of these three girls have mega voices," Twain said. "Are incredible entertainers and very successful in their own right. So it's a compliment and I will enjoy it thoroughly, sitting there and watching these girls bring my songwriting to life in their own way. There is no greater compliment." Scott said it was impossible not to be influenced by Twain's music and style. "Who is not a fan of Shania Twain? The woman came on the scene, supposedly country," Scott said. "Blew completely over into pop. And made a mark of sexiness and great lyrics and a wonderful voice. She's a really powerful woman and I am into powerful women." Underwood too said she paved the way for artists like her. "I think we were all definitely influenced by Shania, even if we don't realize it," Underwood said. "Because her music was just so.. She was just her and it was different and kind of revolutionary at the time. She definitely paved the way for a lot of us that are doing what we do now and lucky enough to get to do that. It's cool that she is being honored." The show will air on CMT at 9 p.m. EST on Thursday, Oct. 20.

Tourism on the rise in Iran
 
02:08
(11 Nov 2016) LEAD IN: More western tourists are visiting Iran after a thaw in relations following last year's nuclear deal. STORY-LINE: Iranians are seeing more foreign tourists on their streets a year after the landmark nuclear deal that ended a decade of standoff with the world community. Home to beautiful mountains, breathtaking historical buildings and priceless artwork it has lots to offer the intrepid holiday maker. UNESCO, the United Nations culture agency, has 21 sites in Iran on its World Heritage List. They include the ruins of Persepolis and Pasargadae, the mosques and palace at Meidan Emam of Isfahan and other sites. Beyond that, local skiers and snowboarders boast of Iran's mountains, while Tehran enjoys a growing modern art scene. Shiite pilgrims also travel to different sites in the country. In the last few years, Iran reported having around 5 million tourists a year, most coming from Iraq and other neighbouring countries. Tehran's historical Grand Bazaar, situated in the south, is the largest and most important market in the capital. Every day thousands of traders and ordinary people come to the bazaar to do business, shopping or just pass through. Jacques Genevieve Sanchez is a French tourist visiting the bazaar. She came to Iran with her husband a week ago. She says they started planning this trip years ago but felt now was the right time to finally make that happen. "(We travelled to Iran) because we thought of the country many, many years ago and it seems to them that it is easiest today because there is a new connection between Europe and Iran and we notice that it's true", she says. Another tourist is Stefan Moeller from Germany. The businessman chose Iran as a holiday destination for him and his wife and one-year-old son. Stefan says he has found it an interesting and safe destination despite all the negative publicity it gets. "European people are afraid about Iran. They think there is war and some bad guys here but it is all nice here. Because it's so funny and you can have a lot of fun without those things that we have in Europe", he says. However there are lots of Middle Eastern laws here that are worlds apart from life in Europe. Alcohol is illegal and women are required by law to cover their hair. Homosexuals can also face the death penalty in Iran. While it may be getting more popular with Europeans, Americans make up less than one percent of tourists. However despite US travel warnings, an American luxury tour operator is currently promoting a new trip to Iran in May. Illinois-based Abercrombie & Kent is offering the tour to those willing to take the risk, describing it as the first opportunity to see an Iran opening up to the West after the nuclear deal. The cost of the 12-day tour starts at 5,600 US dollars. Iran and America haven't had formal diplomatic relations since the 1979 US Embassy takeover following the country's Islamic Revolution. The Swiss Embassy currently looks after American interests in the country. Abercrombie & Kent says that interchange between American tourists and the Iranian people will help bridge the gap between the two nations.

UK non-binary person comes out to Obama
 
04:09
(23 Apr 2016) A student came out as "non-binary" on Saturday during a televised town hall-style meeting with US President Barack Obama in London. Maria Munir, a student at the University of York in northern England, told Obama: "I'm coming out to you as a non-binary person" - identifying as neither exclusively male nor female. The student urged the British and US governments to "take us seriously as transgender people". The president said he was "incredibly proud" of Munir for speaking out, and encouraged the questioner to "keep pushing". Munir said afterward that "to be sat in front of the president of the United States, the leader of the free world, and to be able to pitch to him social action that I believe he can have a real influence on is something I will never be able to describe".

Venezuela's resort island wiped out by economic crisis
 
04:26
(16 Sep 2016) This resort town was once mobbed with international tourists who loved the sparkling blue water, fine white sand and flawless sunny days. Now, swimming pools are empty, toilets don't flush and many hotels can't afford to offer meal service. Crisis-wracked Venezuela is giving the island community of 600,000 a last-minute cleanup as the government prepares to host leaders from the developing world for a summit of the Non-Aligned Movement. But all the attention can't hide the steep decline the island has suffered as the socialist country sinks into economic and social collapse. One of the most maddening problems for locals is daily water cuts government critics blame on lack of infrastructure maintenance. Hotel owner Luis Munoz says he counts himself lucky to see running water every two weeks. Munoz left his job as an engineer six years ago to open a colonial-style hotel on the beach here with 46 rooms. Until recently, he was doing well, catering to international tourists, well-do-to Venezuelans and groups of school children on government-sponsored trips. Now, every day has become a struggle. "We are offering rooms when we don't offer towels, we don't offer soap in the bathrooms, we don't offer toilet paper," he said, standing in his hotel lobby without a guest in sight. Overall hotel occupancy has fallen to 35 percent this year, according to the local tourist board. Flights into the island are down 50 percent. The crash has been devastating to people working in tourism, who are also grappling with the severe shortages and raging inflation plaguing the rest of the country. Like most Venezuelans, Munoz, 42, passes hours each week waiting in lines to try to buy basic goods at subsidised prices. He manages to keep his hotel's murky pool filled from a well. But food shortages have forced him to suspend meal service. Top officials flying in from around the world this week for the summit of the Cold War-era Non-Aligned Movement will see infrastructure from Margarita Island's glory days, including large waterfront hotels and three sprawling shopping centers featuring high-end stores, though they are now mostly empty. World leaders attending the summit include Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, Bolivian President Evo Morales and Ecuador President Rafael Correa. From the outside, the site that will host the summit, the Hotel Venetur Margarita, still looks like it could be a five-star hotel in Miami or Aruba. It was once managed by Hilton International, and in 2009, housed the late Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi and Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe. Former President Hugo Chavez later expropriated the hotel. Last month, water cuts put the lobby bathrooms out of service. Workers placed jugs of water in the bathroom for guests to wash their hands. International tourists have begun to shun Venezuela in recent years as it has become one of the most violent countries in the world, and a complex currency system makes it difficult to change money. A decade ago, 40 percent of Margarita Island tourists came from abroad, according to Chamber of Tourism President Igor Viloria. Now just four percent of tourists are international. And while many Venezuelans continue to spend weekends on the beach, few can afford a plane ticket and hotel. Instead, more people make day trips to the coast, or camp out overnight to save money. That's left the business community here reeling, with no help in sight. Julio Gonzalez is struggling to keep his bathing suit and towel shop open. Sales are down 70 percent this year, he said as he gazed out on Playa El Agua, a nearly deserted white-sand beach.

Singer Akon backs Liberia's decision to outsource primary education oversight to company

(20 Oct 2016) SINGER AKON BACKS LIBERIA'S DECISION TO OUTSOURCE PRIMARY EDUCATION OVERSIGHT TO COMPANY An American-Senegalese musician is in Liberia as guest of Bridge International, an American Firm working to outsource Liberia's education. Speaking to the Associated Press in Monrovia, Akon stressed the need to blend energy and education to give students the full benefit of a learning experience. "Hopefully, we would be able to find a system that works to where, we can light up all Liberia. God willing, that's the main goal," said Akon.

Bovines running toward camera 3. SOUNDBITE (English) Frans Jacobs, Dutch cattle rancher who raised aurochs: "They are supposed to be very strong cattle, they eat whatever they can get and they will survive, they will survive us. If you leave them nice and quiet, they will multiply without hardly any attention." 4. Aerial of bovines in field 5. Various of bovines inside enclosure 6. SOUNDBITE (Czech) Dalibor Dostal, Director of Conservation Group "European Wildlife": "They came from the Netherlands as a result of a breeding back programme that started in 2008 from primitive cattle breeds, which according to genetic analysis are as close as possible to the extinct aurochs. They select the animals most similar to it and by this process of breeding back we should be able to get an animal in a few generations that looks like the aurochs and also has the same impact on the environment." 7. Various shots, including aerial shots, of bovines in large field STORYLINE: A Dutch breeding programme has recreated massive bovines closely related to aurochs, once the heaviest European land mammal and the wild ancestor of today's cattle that became extinct in the 17th century. A small herd was introduced to a Czech sanctuary on Tuesday, joining some wild horses. Such an animal has not been seen on Czech territory for hundreds of years. By eating invasive vegetation, these animals will help to maintain the steppe character of the land. After a nine-hour drive and few more minutes of hesitation, six calves - five cows and a bull - jumped out of a truck at dawn to take the first look at their new home at the former Milovice military base, 35 kilometres (22 miles) northeast of Prague. =========================================================== Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com (ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.

Former US presidents during transition period
 
03:39
(10 Nov 2016) US President Barack Obama is set to welcome his successor, Donald Trump, to the White House, extending an olive branch to a man he blasted as unfit to serve as commander in chief and who led the charge to challenge the legitimacy of his own presidency. Obama invited Trump to the White House later on Thursday as the two leaders prepared for the transition of power following the bruising, often nasty US presidential election. Obama's meeting with the president-elect will take place in the Oval Office, while first lady Michelle Obama and Melania Trump will meet separately in the residence of the White House. Obama says former President George W. Bush could not have been more gracious after his 2008 election victory and he has instructed his team to follow that example in preparing the way for Trump. Prior to that, President Bill Clinton welcomed the incoming George W. Bush to the White House in late 2000.

Pitbull gets star on walk of fame and speaks on Trump
 
05:29
(15 Jul 2016) PITBULL URGES DONALD TRUMP TO USE HIS PLATFORM FOR 'THE GREATER GOOD' International superstar Pitbull cemented his place in Hollywood history Friday (15 July 2016) with a star on the Walk of Fame. The Cuban-American rapper became emotional during the ceremony while thanking his family and a friend who had died. "I'm getting it together! I'm getting it together," he told the crowd as he was tearing up. After the ceremony, Pitbull addressed reports that he had been courted by presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. "You know me being Cuban-American, I was born politically incorrect already. But as far as the campaigns - very interesting. There's been plenty of candidates that want to sit down and have conversations. I don't have a problem doing that you know, but I do have a certain situation with the way people are handling their platforms. You know when you're handed power, you've got to really understand what that embodies and unfortunately I feel that Donald Trump doesn't understand that right now. And that's why I say about Trump, you know God bless him. That's the beautiful thing about being in the United States of America. But utilize it for the better, for the greater good. You know not just saying anything because you're going to get headlines off of it, you know? So do we really want to help this country or do we want to be the biggest celebrity in the world? You ask that question," said Pitbull in an interview. Motivational speaker Tony Robbins, rapper Lil Jon and record label owner-rapper Luther Campbell attended the afternoon celebration. "They've always try to pigeonhole me into some kind of genre, whether it was hip-hop, crunk, you know a Southern artist, reggaeton, whatever it maybe. (For) me it's just all about making music. And I've been very blessed to be able to learn from so many different and amazing people. As you guys can see over there, I had Uncle Luke up there, Lil Jon, Tony Robbins. Who would've ever thought? I don't even think Vincent van Gogh could paint that picture, you know to be honest with you. But to me, what I have gotten a chance to see is music is the universal language. It breaks down barriers and borders, sees no limits and it brings everybody together. So it never really bothered me if they see me a certain way or they didn't me. I always say I'm too Latin for hip-hop, too hip-hop for Latins. Till they figure it out I'm gonna keep rapping," Pitbull said after the event. Pitbull addressed the crowd in English and Spanish during the ceremony and called for a better understanding of the Latino experience in the United States. "For all the Latinos, all the families out there and for our culture who works very hard in this country and are always looking for a better future for their families - we truly appreciate the opportunities of the United States and to have the liberty of moving forward. When people are on the outside and talk shit at the end of the day, they don't know what our struggles are, they don't know what it's like to come from nothing. A family that enters a country and doesn't know the language, they don't know anything, but they strived and succeeded. So when people talk about Latinos without knowing the struggles they need to shut their mouth. And that's why I say first, we shine the shoes and then we own the shoe shops. First we make the sandwiches then we own the restaurants. First we clean the houses then we own every house on the block. And then we believe in ourselves, we work hard, we take full advantage of the American dream and the opportunity, and then we end up with a Hollywood star on the block in Los Angeles. Play with it!" he said.

Local weapons industry looks to export
 
04:48
(8 Dec 2015) LEAD-IN: Pakistani weapons-makers are readying their guns, knives, and swords for export. Manufacturers have been showcasing their range at the Target and Outdoor Shooting Sports (TOSS) show in Islamabad. STORY-LINE: It's a hands on, interactive event in the Pakistani capital, as hunters and gun enthusiasts check out the latest locally made weapons. The three-day Target and Outdoor Shooting Sports (TOSS) show featured both local and foreign guns, knives and accessories. At the Moscow Arms Company, one customer poses with semi-automatic weapons. More than 60 Pakistani companies are represented here, with most of them producing their weapons in local factories. The chairman of the Pakistan Hunting Sporting Arms Development Company, Zahid Ullah Shinwari, says the local industry has huge potential. "In organising this type of exhibition we are showing their (manufacturers') strengths and potential to people. Practically we want to show their skills development to people internationally, to show that we can manufacture (weapons) to international standards. We have the technical know-how and have a big potential which we have not realised so far." The manufacturers are promoting the artistic details and export quality of their weapons. Wah Industries promises that customer satisfaction is its goal. Hunter, Zain Najeeb Qureshi could soon be another happy customer, as he inspects shotguns decorated with elaborate engravings and designs. It's this type of weapon that he likes. "Especially the engraving, handmade work, antique shotguns that are unique and show that excellent work is being done in Pakistan," he says. There are handguns, double-barrel shotguns, ammunition, and hunting knives. Some of the daggers feature a handle made of a deer's horn. Mohammad Hamza, a local manufacturer and exporter of knives known as Damascus blades, explains how he differentiates his products. "Basically it is (made from a) stag horn which is imported from abroad. It is an expensive item but it is timeless. How long we we keep using the old designs? The Damascus blade is a new innovation, it has carbon steel, so we like to use the stag horn (in the handle), this makes our product unique to others." The event was a chance for manufacturers and buyers, both local and foreign, to meet and talk business. Not everything was quite as deadly as the high powered shotguns and automatic weapons on show. There were also antique and ornamental weapons, and accessories including bags and clothing. Khalid Mahmood Sadhra, another manufacturer, says foreign orders are starting to come in. "Now our weapon is approved by American panels, and we have very handsome orders in our hands. We have exported our weapons, so definitely (this show) it will help us to earn the foreign exchange for our homeland country and it will also help us in future for the better export markets, worldwide," he says. And once you have a new gun, you'll need something to carry it in. The show, which ran from 4 to 6 December 2015, also featured a range of smartly designed leather holsters, cartridge belts and bags.

New Delhi residents find tranquillity in Buddhist chanting
 
04:21
(26 Apr 2016) FOR CLEAN VERSION SEE STORY NUMBER: 4032504 LEAD IN: Busy New Delhi residents are finding tranquillity in Buddhist chanting. The rhythmic mantras are offering practitioners a chance to be mindful and present in the moment. STORY-LINE: They chant in unison. A group of six people from across the Indian capital, office workers, homemakers, students, people who belong to different faiths, gather to repeatedly chant Buddhist mantras. Devotees say it brings practitioners spiritual solace or just a break from the cacophony of New Delhi's crowded streets. Buddhism has a history of drawing outsiders: Hollywood celebrities, agnostics, Christians and Jews who have lost touch with their own religions, attracted by Buddhism's easy rituals and lack of dogma. Now, Buddhist chanting has come to the upper-middle class enclaves of some of the most crowded, noisy and stressful cities in the world, drawing in thousands of Indians - most of them Hindu - in search of something to soothe their troubles. At a recent chanting session in a middle-class New Delhi neighbourhood, participants quietly sat down on thin mattresses on the floor in the carpeted basement of a residential building, with their legs folded under them and hands joined in prayer. Facing an ornate wooden altar that contains the Gohonzon - a scroll with the chant "Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo" inscribed on it that is venerated - they begin chanting. Latecomers seamlessly join in, blending their voices with the ongoing rhythm. Soon the tempo picks up speed and builds to a crescendo before slowing as the chanters gather their breath. The repetitive mantra is accompanied by the clicking of wooden beads and one of the chanters striking a gong at intervals. " I was like, over forty years old when I started chanting and that's when I realized its never too late I found a way of life that I could achieve my dream," says Ruma Roka, aged 54, who runs an institute for young people with hearing disabilities. She spends her work day teaching young deaf adults, training them to find mainstream jobs in banking and hospitality. Roka's work is physically and emotionally draining and after a long day, she looks forward to her chanting session. "They (the young deaf adults) have gone through so much rubbish and torture in their lives, kids are not getting employed, I wouldn't not be able to survive. I would run.. I would have a compassion deficit. When I go home and I chant I appreciate my life," Roka says. The Buddhist phrase "Nam-Myoho-Renge-Kyo" means the law of cause and effect. Repeatedly chanting the phrase was started by a 13th century Japanese priest named Nichiren Daishonin, who believed that it would enable chanters to realize the "inner Buddhahood" that lies dormant within every human being. The chanting itself does not require much. Practitioners sit facing a blank wall or in a place where they will not be distracted. Ideally, they would face an altar containing the Gohonzon. Some loop a string of beads over their hands that they put together in prayer. Chanting is done with the eyes open, with the beads helping to focus on the sonorous sound of the invocation. Hindus who chant on a regular basis say they see no conflict with their traditional religious beliefs because the basic tenets of all religions are the same. Gaurav Saboo, 34, works as an executive in an international bank and puts in long hours at the office each day He has been chanting for 15 years, and credits the practice for his success. After he cleared his accountancy examinations at the young age of 21, his career has soared. Seeing his positive attitude, Saboo says his wife has taken to chanting as well. Practitioners chant individually but meet once a month to share experiences.

Eco-friendly supermarket uses zero plastic packaging
 
05:37
(15 Nov 2016) LEAD IN: Could this be a sign of things to come? An independent supermarket in Copenhagen uses zero plastic packaging. Instead, LØS Market offers customers cotton or compostable paper bags, or re-usable glass containers. STORY-LINE: It's late afternoon and shoppers at Copenhagen's LØS Market are busily picking up some items on their way home. But there's one big difference here. Instead of taking pre-packaged items and stuffing them into plastic bags, customers are encouraged to use biodegradable bags or glass containers and take only what they need. Once they're done shopping, the produce is weighed and customers pay for only what they've taken. "It makes no sense at all, when I go home and buy my shopping somewhere else, and I buy a packet of rice and I buy a cucumber, and then when I come home I just tear it apart and throw it out, it doesn't make any sense at all," says August Septimius Krogh from LØS market. "In this place, I can buy stuff and have nothing to throw out afterwards." LØS Market - which translates as 'loose market' - opened in the Danish capital this summer. It's claimed to be the first of its kind in the Danish capital. Director Frederic Hamburger says regular customers have told him they're already noticing less plastic in their waste bins. He decided to start the project after being inspired by similar ventures around the world. "The containers that are used in here is glass, is cotton, is compostable paper bags as well, organic, so people are re-using that all the time, so it's circular and it's lasting all the time," says Hamburger. "This is the point - not using plastic and instead re-usable materials as well to continue again and again, and buy." The vegan supermarket sells everything from fruits and vegetables to nuts, beans and rice. There are around 400 organic products, all sold in bulk without any packaging. There's even these taps that dispense organic wine. They can be used in conjunction with re-usable glass bottles. Once all the wine is consumed, the glass bottles are returned to be washed then re-used. "We say down here that it's more sexy to shop down here because you get a product that is nice to look at and it's easy to work with," says Krogh. "And secondly, you only have to buy what you need instead of buying a fixed amount of food. So, in that sense we make less food waste because you don't have to buy certain amounts." Those here at LØS Market believe the concept could work on a large scale. One hurdle may be shopper acceptance and changing well-ingrained habits, but customers here don't seem to mind. "I think a lot of people are keen to now how they can help in some way," says Ffion Legg, a student at the University of Copenhagen. "And so recycling is a big deal and people are getting used to that, but I think that this is a huge way that we could reduce our waste." Krogh claims reducing the amount of plastic waste generated by shoppers also has some preferential knock-on effects, such as fewer garbage trucks on the road. According to Denmark's Environment Agency, the average Dane produces 759 kg of trash per year. "You don't need to empty your garbage tray at home and there will be no huge garbage truck driving around to take out your trash. In that sense there is a difference," says Krogh. "Because if it's only one guy doing it, it doesn't mean much, but if one guy is producing 750 kilos of garbage a year - which Danes do - imagine if it was a hundred guys or a thousand people." Tackling mounting waste, one customer at a time.

Trump: 'I Would Fire John Podesta So Fast'
 
02:35
(31 Oct 2016) Speaking in Colorado on Sunday, Donald Trump went after multiple Democrats, including Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman John Podesta. Trump told the crowd Podesta "speaks so badly about" Clinton when discussing Podesta's stolen emails. "I would fire John Podesta so fast, whoever he is, I don't think I ever met the guy but he says she such bad things," Trump said. Trump also went after Michelle Obama, saying the First Lady said "the nastiest quote" about Clinton during President Barack Obama's campaign against her. "It was a quote that if you can't control your own house, you have no right essentially to be in the White House," Trump said. "I would never say that," he added.

SOUNDBITE (Russian) Major General Igor Konashenkov, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman: "I think that today there is not a single army in the world that would talk about its military operation so thoroughly, with facts, numbers, with objective data control (like the Russian army in Syria). I'd like to stress, it's (an operation) against international terrorism in this region. That is an evil dangerous not only for our country or for Syria, it's a global problem." 21. Il-76-MD transport plane taking off 22. Su-34 bomber landing STORYLINE: Russia's heavy airstrikes in Syria continued on Wednesday, days ahead of the hoped-for start of talks on how to end one aspect of the country's five-year-old war, where government forces fight rebels, and militants including the extremist Islamic State group which has seized substantial stretches of territory. Helicopter gunships swept low around the Hemeimeem base on the Syrian coast as warplanes took off one after another during a media visit to the base. Since The Associated Press first visited the base in October, the Russian military has put a second runway into service and has deployed powerful S-400 air defence weapons. Russian Defence Ministry spokesman Major General Igor Konashenkov said that thanks to Russian support Syrian government forces have retaken about 250 villages and towns from the extremists, that allowed some of their residents to move back into their towns and rebuild their homes. Since Russia launched its bombing campaign in Syria on 30 September, its warplanes have flown over 5,700 missions. The number is remarkable for a force comprising just a few dozen warplanes. The Russian military has insisted it is targeting the Islamic State group and other extremists and has angrily dismissed Western accusations that it is hitting moderate rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Gina Rodriguez: 'Whatever breaks your heart, that's your life's purpose'
 
03:45
(29 Jul 2016) GINA RODRIGUEZ: 'WHATEVER BREAKS YOUR HEART, THAT'S YOUR LIFE'S PURPOSE' Gina Rodriguez is on a mission to inspire and uplift young people through social media - replying regularly to those who write to her on Twitter and elsewhere with questions about self-confidence or other issues. The 31-year-old "Jane the Virgin" star didn't necessarily start out with a purpose behind her engagement online, but says now: "Whatever breaks your heart, that's your life's purpose." "It breaks my heart to think that there are people out there that don't have role models or don't have anyone to hold on to or have no one to relate to or have some kind of fear or self-confidence issue. And if they are looking to me and they're actually asking me, then the honor is mine. Should I feel the desire to respond because I feel like I can? That honor is mine And that is something that I feel like is a gift. So I don't take those gifts for granted because I have a really blessed life. And I feel like that's the trade-off." Many of the young people who write to Rodriguez on Twitter end up going back to delete their original messages to her, which Rodriguez says shows a lack of self-confidence. "Like that just happened the other day, she was like, 'I got so nervous that you even responded, I deleted it.' But it's a testament to how social media works and how we have a desire to be seen and heard and believe that we're not. We believe that we have a lack of power, when on the contrary – we have so much power. So when they ask me a question and I have a desire to respond or I feel like I can respond and they retreat - I want to go even deeper. I want to go even deeper because I think to myself, I'm like, 'You want to be heard. You want to be seen. Where does the fear exist?'" Rodriguez says she doesn't worry about spending too much time on social media at the expense of communicating with real-life friends and family. "I live a pretty honest life. To me, honesty is freedom. So should somebody present that I've been on social media and I haven't contacted them, then I will be honest as to the reason why I haven't contacted them. And it will never be my mother that that happens to because she will give it to me real good and she deserves to. But yeah, I definitely don't question that part of my life because I live in honesty. I live in truth." Rodriguez just finished filming the sci-fi thriller "Annihilation," due out next year, and she'll appear in September's "Deepwater Horizon," about the 2010 BP oil spill.

(10 Jun 2016) DENCH JOINS CELEBRATIONS OF 60TH DUKE OF EDINBURGH AWARDS Royals and celebrities alike attended a Bond themed party in Buckinghamshire Thursday (9 JUNE 2016) to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Duke of Edinburgh awards. The fundraiser, hosted by David Walliams, was attended by the Duke of Edinburgh himself, joined by fellow Royals, his son and daughter-in-law, the Duke and Countess of Wessex. Bond stars including Dame Judi Dench, Joanna Lumley and Naomi Harris mingled on the lawn of Stoke Park, which featured in Bond movies "Goldfinger" and "Tomorrow Never Dies." Dench paid homage to her Bond past with diamante stickers spelling 007 on her lower neck. After the release of "Spectre" late last year, there has been much speculation as to whether Daniel Craig will return to the iconic role for another movie. And as for the Royals, the celebrations don't end here - with Prince Philip's 95th birthday Friday (10 JUNE 2016) and events taking place all weekend for the Queen's 90th birthday.
