    Plans are in place to open Prince’s Paisley Park for public tours this fall. The plans to turn the estate into a museum were announced Wednesday by Prince’s family and Bremer Trust, which is the estate special administrator. The estate will maintain ownership of the property, but it will be run by the same group that operates Elvis Presley's Graceland in Memphis. Visitors will have a chance to see the main floor of the complex, which includes the recording and mixing studios where Prince created some of his biggest hits. The tour will also show Prince’s video editing suites, rehearsal...

    An Islamic preacher based in Saudi Arabia is warning Muslims against using certain emojis. Wajdi Akkari posted a video where he speaks out against a number of emojis that he believes are blasphemous, including the angel and any emojis that are “devilish.” According to the DailyMail, Akkari was born in Lebanon, moved to the US to become a rapper when he was 18, and then eventually moved to Saudi Arabia where he teaches Arabic.

    Doctors diagnosed him with hypersensitivity pneumontitis, or HP, a rare disease of the lungs. HP is the result of an allergic reaction to mold, fungus, dust or other substances a patient breathes. As a result, the tiny spaces in the lungs between the air sacs, airways and blood vessels become inflamed, and breathing can be severely impaired. Typical triggers for HP include exposure to birds or household mold caused by excessive water damage, but the patient had no history of either. Nor did he have a history of smoking. Doctors prescribed the steroid prednisolone and the immunosuppressive drug azathioprine, but...

(snip) According to, the set-top box has two primary features: replaying documentary films about Kim Jong Un and his leadership and providing language-learning resources — for Russian and English. Users can search for programs by typing the title or browsing through categories, which may be the only feature that it shares with Netflix

SNIP a video showed Japan's prime minister, Shinzo Abe, who announces he won't make it to Rio in time. So Abe turned into the Japanese video game plumber Mario and then popped up in the flesh out of a huge green pipe in the stadium that he allegedly used as a shortcut to get from Tokyo to Rio. SNIP

A large migration from Appalachia occurred during the 1940s, making Washington the capital of a blossoming bluegrass music scene. Bluegrass became a defining sound for many in the area and, by the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, was a hotbed for musicians such as Buzz Busby, Leon Morris, The Country Gentlemen, and later, the Seldom Scene and Johnson Mountain Boys. Bluegrass music had a limited presence on commercial...

They've won medals too -- Gold Medal for Thrasher and 4 or 5 career Olympic medals for Rhode, including one in Rio. The NBC Nightly News website shows last night broadcast, but it does...

    New York Times ^ | AUG. 16, 2016 | NATE CHINEN
    Bobby Hutcherson, one of the most admired and accomplished vibraphonists in jazz, died on Monday at his home in Montara, Calif. He was 75. Marshall Lamm, a spokesman for Mr. Hutcherson’s family, confirmed the death, saying Mr. Hutcherson had long been treated for emphysema. Mr. Hutcherson’s career took flight in the early 1960s, as jazz was slipping free of the complex harmonic and rhythmic designs of bebop. He was fluent in that language, but he was also one of the first to adapt his instrument to a freer postbop language, often playing chords with a pair of mallets in each...

    The Rio Olympics wrapped its first full week of competition on Friday night with more Michael Phelps, Katie Ledecky and a primetime kickoff for track and field. Fast-affiliate ratings give NBC's primetime showing for the games, between 8 and 11 p.m., 23.9 million viewers and a 6.3 rating among adults 18-49. That's down from the night before and the lowest showing for a competitive night to date, but that's to be expected, given the lineup and Friday's status as a typically slower night for TV viewers. (The same Friday four years ago in London averaged 26.9 million viewers and an...

    Twenty-five years after the release of “The Black Album,” Metallica are still struggling to recapture lightning in a bottle. For the first seven years of their career, Metallica’s main objective was to be the loudest, heaviest, fastest, and most mind-blowing band on the planet. They had no commercial aspirations and sought to rail against what they perceived as the vacuous, frivolous mainstream radio rock poisoning the airwaves. Then, after touring for their fourth album, 1988’s …And Justice for All, Metallica had a change of heart and underwent a striking, abrupt transformation. The disc that followed, which featured a jet-black cover,...

    RIO DE JANEIRO — The playing of the United States’ national anthem at medal ceremonies is bringing tears to the eyes of American athletes here. Elsewhere, the song is having a very different effect.“It is driving me crazy,” said Jason DeBord, a 45-year-old living in Ann Arbor, Mich. “I hit the mute button, or I make dinner, or I just sit there and brace myself.” DeBord has nothing against displays of patriotism, nor is he simply eager to return to the action. What irritates him is the version of “The Star-Spangled Banner” being used at the Olympics. Put bluntly, it...
