Dave Matthews Talks Boyd Tinsley’s Departure, Living In Apartheid-Era South Africa On NPR’s World Cafe [Listen]

first_imgDave Matthews serves as the featured guest in the new installation of NPR‘s long-running syndicated music show, World Cafe. In the extensive radio package, which clocks in at over an hour in length, Matthews discusses how he’s moved through trying times in various different aspects of his professional and personal life.As host Talia Schlanger explains in an introduction to the episode,With its explosive start in 1991, Dave Matthews Band pulled off an incredibly rare rock and roll feat. The band captured an entire generation of young people with songs that featured the unlikely combo saxophone and violin — songs that were more intricate, off-kilter, socially conscious and frankly musical than you usually hear drum up that much mass excitement. …Dave Matthews Band’s new album is called Come Tomorrow, and Dave is clearly excited about it. He’s also excited about the band’s current lineup. The biggest change right now is that Boyd Tinsley, the band’s original violinist, left in February citing health reasons and later faced sexual harassment allegations, which he’s denied. We talk about Dave’s thoughts on the band without Boyd.Dave Matthews touches on Boyd’s departure in the interview, carefully choosing his words,Boyd needed to go and focus on the things that, I guess, he’s focusing on now. It was very hard for him, and it’s been quite a while, to give the focus to this band that I wanted. In this band … I want everything that you have. I want every bit of musicality you have. If you are the most magical improviser, and you have a voice that has never been heard before, I want that, and I want every part of it. That’s what I demand from everybody. … Boyd has not been able to bring that for a long time … and for that reason, he had to go and take care of himself. Change is never easy, even if it’s for the better.Later in the interview, Matthews expounds on the underlying catalysts for Dave Matthews Band’s split with Tinsley, and expresses his excitement about the ability and potential of the band’s new-look touring lineup. A Dave explains,The band right now is like 10 times what I’ve felt for years. I feel the gates open because we have an incredible keyboardist and vocalist named Buddy Strong … It is so invigorating and uplifting at the moment to play with Buddy, and the band, we all feel it. To be on stage right now, I have no idea what to expect from him. It’s so exciting. I can’t imagine what this band is going to sound like in September. I don’t even know if I deserve at age 51 to have this much joy on stage. It’s been decades since this band’s had so much joy. Keeping with the idea that “change is never easy, even if it’s for the better,” Matthews recounts his experiences living in his native South Africa during the era of apartheid. He explains,I spent some of my childhood as a white South African. I can never know what it’s like to be an Indian South African or a black South African, or what they would call it, a colored South African, a mixed-race South African. But I know from my view as a person, because of my mother and the way I was raised, I was raised that judging someone for something they were born with is absurd. A system like that can only be justified because somebody wanted more than their share at some point.And it’s the same history we have [in the United States] in many ways. Our society, our country, was born out of division, born out of wealth created from oppression. We teach in our history classes here that this country was born on an ideal of justice and an ideal of freedom, but that’s gobbledygook. Matthews renounced his South African citizenship when he moved to the U.S. full-time, but continued to visit throughout the 80’s to visit family and friends. During those visits, he would hear tell of chaotic protests, tense confrontations with authorities, and the struggle his South African peers were experiencing first-hand. As Matthews explains, his connection to those fighting for equality had a powerful effect on his worldview:[The struggle] was invigorating and terrifying — and beautiful because of the outcome, in hindsight. Even though I was there with friends as part of the population, I still wasn’t a part of the oppressed majority, but I wanted to be part of the struggle of it. That was an amazing part of my life. [It] made me define myself and my position in the world. A lot of people would say South Africa is not in a perfect situation now, but then I always want to remind people that it’s only a few decades old for a nation. And for a nation to only be a few decades old and to be that far ahead in many ways, that far ahead of this country and how it’s dealing with its race relations, is a lesson to us and almost an admonition of us.  Matthews also discusses the band’s latest release, Come Tomorrow, DMB’s record seventh-straight album to debut at #1 on the Billboard charts. He acknowledges the “racial ideas” that are present on an album in light of the highly problematic and divisive times in which we now live. As Matthews contemplates,The things that connect us are now, in this strange world, are the radical ideas. And to say we’re all the same, people get deeply upset about that. The lives of people that were not born in America are absolutely, in every way, as important as the lives of people that were born in America. It’s insane to think there’s a good percentage of people in this country that don’t believe that. That is bizarre and terrifying to me that someone might think of a person that’s looking for a better life as a parasite simply because they’re looking for a better life. Or that they’re dangerous, simply because they see God in a different light. That’s the doom of the human race if we separate ourselves out. Until we realize that, if everyone’s not included with the same respect, we’re all doomed. You can listen to the full Dave Matthews World Cafe episode below:Dave Matthews – NPR World Cafe – Full Audio[Audio: NPR]You can also tune in now to Sirius XM‘s Dave Matthews Band Radio, the limited-run dedicated station playing DMB’s music, interviews with the band, and more in addition to live audio streams of this month’s Friday evening shows. For a full list of Dave Matthews Band’s upcoming tour dates, head here.[H/T NPR]last_img read more

Presentations matter for CEO candidates

first_imgHere’s the good news: The message embodied in you will be expressed whatever the modality or context—written format, verbal conversation, presentation or interview. You can speak coherently to what you deeply understand and have experienced. For instance, if you were asked questions about your expertise and career history, you’d likely be able to answer to a satisfying degree what jobs you’ve had, what actions you took, and what impacts you had on members, colleagues and staff.Here’s the bad news: What is not deeply understood, researched or vetted is not embodied. If you do not have a level of familiarity with a topic, your lack of expertise, knowledge or vision will show up, especially in pressure situations. If you have not done your homework to an excruciating level, that lack of preparation can manifest as confusing, even conflicting, or—worst case—incoherent assessments and declarations for the future.The higher you go up the leadership ladder, the more preparation matters. If you are getting ready for a CEO interview, glancing at the credit union’s call report and looking over peer-to-peer ratios are just a starting point. You need to connect the dots between the financials, operations, culture, competitors and marketplace. Look beyond the surface-level variables and ponder such fundamental questions as, “What are we trying to keep about our culture today (that drives our performance) that may need to shift in the future?” or “What’s the role of the evolving role of the board in the future to ensure we stay successful?” continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Naspers moves into mobile networking

first_img2 September 2008BuzzCity, a developer of global mobile communities and consumer services, has secured US$10-million (about R78-million) in growth capital to help extend the market share of its core property, myGamma.com and its network of websites, from South African media giant Naspers.The company, headquartered in Singapore, aims to grow the membership base of myGamma, a social networking website aimed primarily at mobile users.It also aims to develop more user-generated content through member services and applications, to invest in applications aimed at maximising partnership opportunities, and to grow myGamma’s portfolio of advertising clients.“The growth opportunity for off-deck services continues to grow globally,” BuzzCity chief executive KF Lai said in a statement last week.“We’ve seen phenomenal growth in markets in South Asia and Africa, and in the coming year we expect to see this growth to include markets in Europe and USA.”Lai said that the common footprint that existed between BuzzCity and Naspers turned the deal into a strategic relationship for both companies to develop their media products, particularly in emerging markets like South Africa, India and Thailand.Over the past year, BuzzCity has been on an aggressive development programme, securing overwhelming interest from business, including some of the world’s leading wireless access protocol publishers and mobile digital agencies, who want to be a part of the company’s growth plans.“Users clearly love what BuzzCity is offering – the number of users has grown exponentially, and traffic to myGamma network of partner sites has exceeded six billion page views in the first six months of 2008,” Lai said.User-generated contentJuniper Research recently predicted that the number of mobile phone users globally will increase from 577-million to 1.7-billion by 2013, with applications such as social networking and user-generated content being key drivers for this growth.“The market opportunity for BuzzCity is clear,” said Juniper Research analyst Ian Chard. “BuzzCity’s ‘myGamma’ community has made stunning headway in the mobile social networking space, reaching 2.7-million users across 70 countries.”As an off-deck application, Chard said that BuzzCity had successfully applied the direct-to-consumer business model in an operator-dominated market, and established a strong advertising base that hit 1.7 billion paid ad impressions in July 2008 alone.“Furthermore, myGamma serves two distinct audiences – the newly-connected emerging middle class in developing markets, and blue-collar users in developed regions – making it a shining example of how the social web can span demographic, as well as geographic divides,” Chard said.SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

US working hard with India to help grow its economy Pompeo

first_imgWashington: The US is “working hard” with the Indian government to provide the country with opportunities to grow its economy as part of the Trump administration’s Indo-Pacific strategy, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said. Trade tensions between India and the US have been rising with President Donald Trump complaining that tariffs imposed by New Delhi on American products were “no longer acceptable”. In June, the US terminated India’s designation as beneficiary developing country under the Generalised System of Preferences (GSP) programme. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US India imposed retaliatory tariffs on 28 US products including almonds and apples from June 5, after the Trump administration revoked its preferential trade privileges. The GSP is the largest and oldest US trade preference programme and is designed to promote economic development by allowing duty-free entry for thousands of products from designated beneficiary countries. Pompeo’s remarks came weeks after a team led by Assistant US Trade Representative (AUSTR) for South and Central Asia, Christopher Wilson, held talks with senior Indian officials in New Delhi this month on a wide range of bilateral trade issues, in particular on tax and tariffs. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls “Our Indo-Pacific strategy is well on its way to bearing fruit for not only them but for the United States, and we have watched these coalitions build out. We’re working hard with the Indian government to provide them with opportunities to grow their economy as well,” Pompeo told reporters accompanying him on a tour to the Indo-Pacific region. The US is also seeking greater market access for its dairy products and cut in customs duties in information and communications technology products. The American companies have also raised concerns over price cap on certain medical devices by India. Stating that the US has taken a unilateral position in rolling back export incentives from India, the Indian government has asserted that it would not allow trade negotiations to overtake issues of national interest. Meanwhile, India’s Ambassador to the US, Harsh Vardhan Shringla said that trade between the two countries has grown to USD 142 billion in 2018, and is expected to reach USD 238 billion by 2025. The next stage of growth will be driven by the small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) in both the countries, he said in Colorado. Specifically, the growth of SMEs in the digital marketplace present an ideal opportunity for increased India-US cooperation, he added.last_img read more
