The Real Marsha Ambrosius Soul Seeker Mother Matchmaker

first_img Facebook “I find soul in anything”Nyla showcases a dizzying list of musical influences, including, according to her, everything from Aretha Franklin and Marvin Gaye to Queen and Duran Duran. The album also covers a lot of historical ground, from the intoxicating modern soundscapes of “Bottle Fulla Liquor” to throwback soul on “Today,” which came naturally for Ambrosius.”Anything in three-four [time] just sounds like the right thing to,” she says of “Today.” “It floods out of you because it’s a natural element of soul that is in the body. It’s instilled in me.”Ambrosius also talks about the need for soul in our world, and how an open mind can manifest that soul through music. “It’s feeling. Especially currently, with the social climate, we music that just makes you feel,” she says, dismissing labels of her new album as simply R&B, pop or hip-hop. “Everyone’s like, ‘we need good soul!’ I’m like, ‘what’s soul, ultimately?’ I find soul in anything.””I feel like I’ve been a mother forever”As an artist who emotes, literally, for a living, becoming a mother has put Ambrosius in direct touch with the way music affects her daughter.”Music is the soundtrack, and my daughter’s already grasping what songs evoke certain emotions,” she says. “She’ll know what a sad song is, and she’ll know when it’s time to get up and dance, or she knows when it’s time to just chill. Having her learn emotions through music is a beautiful way to instill it.”This intrinsic connection between music and motherhood extends to her connection with Nyla.”I can hear my daughter down the hallway right now. I think there’s a spidey-sense or a radar that stays with you,” Ambrosius says. “It feels like even though she’s two [years-old], I’ve been a mother forever.” Unlocking life’s secrets of human connection and true love through music with the sultry soul producer/singer/songwriter Nate HertweckGRAMMYs Feb 4, 2019 – 4:04 pm Masha Ambrosius exudes realness from the moment she walks into the Clive Davis Theatre at the GRAMMY Museum in downtown Los Angeles. As an artist known for her authenticity, this genuineness has always followed her, but now, not only is she an eight-time GRAMMY nominee, she’s a mother. And her art and life have intertwined so inextricably that her latest album and her two-year-old daughter share a name: Nyla.”This is my life now,” she says, laughing, referring to the fanny-pack baby bag she’s removing from around her waist before sitting down for the interview. “Everyone’s like, ‘What’s changed for you?’ This.”The album Nyla ushered in a new phase of the multi-talented music maker’s career. Boasting an impressive resume filled with dream-come-true moments like writing and vocal producing Michael Jackson’s “Butterflies” and working with Alicia Keys, Kanye West and Dr. Dre, a successful career with poetic neo-soul duo Floetry, and now three albums into an explorative solo career, Ambrosius’ resume continues to expand. But as she moves further away from where she started in Liverpool, England, here are a few ways how she’s moving closer to herself, closer to her real. Twitter News “I just want everyone to be in love”Looking for a love connection? Just grab a ticket from Ambrosius’ next show.”I’m all for opportunity, and music does that,” she says. “During my tour right now, I encourage the audiences to raise their hands… [I ask] who came here single? Who would come to a Marsha Ambrosius concert single to hear ‘Your Hands,’ ‘Say Yes,’… ‘Freak In Me’… absolutely a bundle of sexual joy, and not wanna [say to someone] ‘hey, can I take your number? Can I take you out on a date?’ So I’m like, ‘Look around the room. There it is. I’ve presented you an opportunity.'”Ambrosius speaks from experience, as she met her husband on tour. He was a roadie for the Floetry reunion tour, and she seized the moment. Not only is she passing along the opportunity as matchmaker, she feels a deeper connection to her lyrics now, having lived real love first hand.”I feel corny, because I’m like… ‘I just want everyone to be in love like I’m in love.’ And now that I’ve found what [being in love] actually is, it’s way more incredible than I could have attempted to word in any song,” she explains, “because I was lending from what I thought it was until it happened to me, and now it’s the most amazingly terrifyingly gratifying experience I’ve ever had.””You can get rich so easily and get broke twice as fast”After our one-on-one interview, Ambrosius speaks with a large group of high school students at the GRAMMY Museum, providing valuable insight on her career and life in general. Her parting advice for the group is as encouraging as it was cautionary, letting the young people in attendance know they should not be pursue becoming lesser versions of their heroes, but the best version of themselves—and it doesn’t happen alone.”You can get rich so easily and get broke twice as fast. To be wealthy is a whole other animal,” Ambrosius says, later adding wisely, “Find your tribe and stick to it.”Diana Ross Set To Perform At The 2019 GRAMMYsRead more Marsha Ambrosius On Soul, Motherhood & Matchmaking real-marsha-ambrosius-soul-seeker-mother-matchmaker The Real Marsha Ambrosius: Soul Seeker, Mother & Matchmaker Email last_img read more

Study finds open cluster NGC 2682 at least two times larger than

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. © 2019 Science X Network Based on new data from ESA’s Gaia satellite, astronomers have provided more insights into properties of the nearby open cluster NGC 2682, revealing that its size is at least two times greater than previously believed. The findings are detailed in a paper published May 6 on the arXiv pre-print repository. More information: R. Carrera, et al. The extended halo of NGC 2682 (M 67) from Gaia DR2. arXiv:1905.02020v1 [astro-ph.SR] arxiv.org/abs/1905.02020 Located some 2,800 light years away, NGC 2682 (aka Messier 67, or M67 for short) is an open cluster in the constellation of Cancer. With an estimated age of about 3.6 billion years, it is one of the nearest old open clusters. Notably, its age and initial chemical composition is similar to that of the sun, hence astronomers even considered that the sun might actually have originated from NGC 2682.Published about one year ago, the latest catalog of data from Gaia satellite (known as Data Release 2, or DR2) provides high-precision measurements, including positions in the sky, parallaxes and proper motions for more than 1 billion sources in the Milky Way. The release contains observational data collected by Gaia in the timespan of nearly two years – between July 25, 2014 and May 23, 2016.DR2 has the potential of revealing more insights into the nature of NGC 2682 as astrometric information in this release could be a valuable tool to investigate extra-tidal regions of several open clusters in the solar neighborhood. So a team of European astronomers led by Ricardo Carrera of Astronomical Observatory of Padova in Italy recently decided to use DR2 in order to learn more about NGC 2682.In particular, the researchers investigated the spatial distribution of this cluster of stars in order to constrain its dynamical evolution. Given that most open clusters should dissolve at an age of around 1 billion years, the fact that NGC 2682 survived until now suggests that it was likely much more massive in the past and has an interesting dynamical history.”We use Gaia DR2 data to identify NGC 2682 members up to a distance of about 150 pc (10 degrees). Two methods (Clusterix and UPMASK) are applied to this end. We estimate distances to obtain three-dimensional stellar positions using a Bayesian approach to parallax inversion, with an appropriate prior for star clusters,” the paper reads.The main conclusion from the study conducted by Carrera’s team is that NGC 2682 is at least twice as large than previously thought. Based on the DR2 data, the astronomers found that this cluster extends up to approximately 160 light years, while other observations carried out in the recent years suggested not more than 78 light years.Furthermore, the study confirmed that NGC 2682 is mass-segregated with the most massive objects concentrated in the central regions. However, there are also stars outside the tidal radius of this cluster. The researchers assume that these extra-tidal stars in NGC 2682 may originate from external perturbations such as disk shocking or dynamical evaporation from two-body relaxation. They also plan more studies of the cluster to test these scenarios.

CMCH nursing staff urge chief to rid campus of canine menace

first_imgKolkata: Some nursing staffers of Calcutta Medical College and Hospital (CMCH) have written to the medical superintendent of the hospital urging him to address the dog menace in various wards.This comes barely two weeks after the NRS Medical College and Hospital incident in which 16 puppies were brutally murdered sparking outrage across the state. It was learnt that the nurses from CMCH have requested the hospital authorities to take steps ensuring that the dogs do not enter the wards in the hospital. It has been alleged that the dogs are often found inside the departments causing a nuisance and becomes difficult for the nurses and other staff members to handle.

One Surajit Malakar, a relative of a patient admitted to CMCH said on Sunday that the surgery ward of the hospital is often filled with dogs. They roam freely inside the ward and sometimes bite the blood pouches of the patients. There had been instances where dogs had snapped the catheters of several patients. A catheter is a tube that is inserted into the body of a patient. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata BoseAccording to sources in the hospital, most of these incidents occur at the surgery ward of the hospital. The patients are often scared of the dogs. It was learnt that after apprehending the gravity of the situation, the hospital authorities have urged the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) to conduct sterilisation and vaccination of the dogs. KMC has already started the process of sterlisation of dogs in several state-run hospitals. In a similar move, a female staffer of NRS Medical College and Hospital has written to the authorities seeking permission to relocate over 130 cats roaming freely inside various wards of the hospital. The killing of 16 puppies at NRS campus created a flutter and two nursing students who were allegedly involved in the incident remain suspended for two by the Health department.last_img read more
