John Morgan Kimock’s “JMMY” Shares New Music Video For “Telephone” [Premiere]

first_imgWhen we last spoke to John Morgan Kimock, the drummer was gearing up to debut his exciting new project JMMY. Though Kimock is part of a number of bands, including that of Mike Gordon and K I M O C K, a project with his father Steve Kimock, JMMY is something totally unique. “JMMY is like an incubator for me to re-establish some of my core musicality that I feel like I didn’t get to work on as much as I would have liked to in the past.”After sharing the debut JMMY track “Low Lands” earlier this year, the collaboration between Kimock and Alex Luquet is pushing forward with a brand new music video. Titled “Telephone,” the new song and video takes a look at our generation’s obsession with phones. “The video came about with my bud Jason Gallagher just hearing the track, and putting it together with a library of telephone related footage that he had been collecting. He has a good eye for these types of audio/visual connections,” said Kimock.“I sort of see hints of the whole telephone addiction in there, which is starting to bubble up as an actual thing in today’s society.”We’re excited to premiere the new video! Produced by Todd Shied and directed by Jason Gallagher, watch “Telephone” streaming below.Kimock is keeping busy throughout the remainder of 2016, playing shows with all of his projects at different times. JMMY kicks off a run of shows throughout the Northeast this week, and the band will be joined by Justin Mazer (American Babies) for every show of the run! The drummer will also be touring with Mike Gordon and K I M O C K throughout October and November. Check out the full tour schedule below!JMMY DatesOctober 5 – Bishops Lounge Northampton MA w.

The tourist barometer in Europe this year recorded a weaker increase at the peak of the season

first_img“As world leaders meet at the UN climate summit in Madrid to find concrete solutions to climate emergencies, the release of the latest ‘World Tourism Barometer’ shows the growing strength of tourism – a sector that has the potential to boost a global sustainability plan. As the number of tourists increases, so can the opportunities for tourism as well as the responsibilities of our sector towards people and the planet”, Said Zurab Pololikashvili, UNWTO Secretary-General. Destinations worldwide recorded 1,1 billion international tourist arrivals in the first nine months of 2019 (43 million more than the same period in 2018), which is in line with the forecast growth of 3 to 4 percent this year. Original markets France (+ 10%) recorded the largest increase among the world’s ten most successful export markets, reflecting increased demand for international travel for the second year in a row. Spain (+ 10%), Italy (+ 9%) and the Netherlands (+ 7%) also recorded strong growth, followed by the United Kingdom (+ 3%) and Russia (+ 2%). The ten most successful markets recorded mixed results in earnings from international tourism until September 2019. The highest growth was recorded in Australia (+ 9%), Japan (+ 8%) and Italy (+ 7%), while China, the United Kingdom and the United States recorded a decline. Mediterranean destinations were among the strongest investors in terms of earnings, both in Europe and in the Middle East and North Africa regions. Source / photo: World Tourism Organization The Middle East (+ 9%) recorded the largest increase in arrivals during the first nine months of 2019, followed by Asia and the Pacific and Africa (both + 5%), Europe (+ 3%) and the Americas (+ 2%). China, the world’s largest source market, recorded an 2019 percent increase in outbound travel in the first half of 14, although spending declined 4 percent from the same period last year. Regional resultscenter_img The slowdown in the global economy, rising trade, geopolitical tensions and long-standing uncertainty over Brexit have had an impact on international tourism, which had a more moderate growth rate in the northern hemisphere during the summer season (July-September). Europe’s growth rate slowed to 3 percent in January and September this year, twice as much as last year, reflecting weaker demand during the peak summer season in the world’s most visited region. While destinations in the southern Mediterranean (+ 5%) and central eastern Europe (+ 4%) were the most successful, the regional average was reduced by northern and western Europe (both + 1%). International tourist arrivals increased by an additional 4 percent in the period from January to September 2019, according to the latest edition of the “World Tourism Barometer” of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO). The growth of tourism continues to outpace global economic growth. Its potential for providing development opportunities around the world is enormous, but there are also challenges in sustainability. The United States led an increase in international tourism spending, mostly due to a strong dollar. India and certain European markets have also been successful, although global growth has been more uneven than last year. This figure underscores the importance of integrating tourism into national export policies in order to increase revenues, reduce the trade deficit and ensure sustainable development in the long run. Tourism is the third largest export category in the world Earning $ 1,7 trillion in revenue since 2018, international tourism remains the third largest category of exports behind fuels ($ 2,4 trillion) and chemicals ($ 2,2 trillion). It accounts for 29 percent of world exports of services and 7 percent of total exports. In some regions, these proportions exceed the world average, especially in the Middle East and Africa, where tourism accounts for over 50 percent of service exports and about 9 percent of total exports.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Winslow Townson)ExpandBOSTON — If anyone came prepared for a rivalry game, it was Celtics fans. It certainly wasn’t the Lakers.The latest installment of a dormant rivalry began with boos raining down on Lonzo Ball, and with Coach Luke Walton offering a harsh assessment of his team’s play. The Lakers dug an early hole – despite slashing a 21-point second-quarter deficit to two points after halftime – from which they could not recover.The Celtics won 107-96.The Lakers’ effort could be traced to an ugly first quarter, in which they were outscored 33-16. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with Packers“They punked us,” Walton said.“They just came out hungry,” rookie Kyle Kuzma said of the Celtics, who have now won 10 games in a row after starting the season 0-2. “The crowd got into it and we were kind of shocked by that a little bit.”As for the unexpected defense that had become the Lakers’ calling card through 10 games?“All of that went out the door today,” Walton said.Although the game was not yet out of hand in the opening period, Walton said the Lakers’ offense was “playing a little selfish” and “defensively we were getting big-boyed.” He turned to veteran center Andrew Bogut for help, but that only seemed to make matters worse. Boston immediately went on a 10-0 run. A unique lineup featuring Bogut – who before Wednesday had averaged 7.2 minutes in six games – swingman Corey Brewer at power forward and Jordan Clarkson at point guard was outscored 17-5 in the final 5:56 of the first period.The matchup of teams that have met in 12 NBA Finals has been a rivalry in name only since 2014, when both teams bottomed out as lottery teams. The Celtics began their climb back to the top of the Eastern Conference while the Lakers remained mired in Western Conference irrelevance, getting progressively worse before winning 27 games last season.“We don’t really like them,” Kuzma said. “It’s going to be a good rivalry going forward. Hopefully it’s renewed.”It will take more than the effort the Lakers gave on Wednesday, committing 21 turnovers and allowing 25 second-chance points.All-Star center Al Horford did not play for the Celtics after he experienced headaches Wednesday and was placed in the league’s concussion protocol. That cleared the way for Aron Baynes to make a spot start. The veteran center had a surprising 21 points, a game-high.The Lakers began their comeback in the second quarter behind a smaller lineup anchored by Julius Randle, who finished with 16 points and 12 rebounds.Brandon Ingram and Clarkson each scored 18 points to lead the Lakers, and it was Clarkson whose driving layup with 5:42 remaining in the third quarter trimmed the deficit to 76-74.“On the road it’s kind of hard to fight back after the first quarter that we had,” Ingram said, “but we did fight back and we had a chance to try to take the lead. But that’s a playoff team. They made some big plays down the stretch.”Kyrie Irving finished with 19 points, 6 rebounds and 5 assists, outdueling his counterpart Ball.“He is a great player,” said Ball, who finished with nine points on 4-of-15 shooting. “I said it before the game, one of the best players in the league. Tough challenge having to stay in front of him.”Ball added six assists and five rebounds, but struggled defensively along with the rest of the team, although he did record a career-high four blocked shots.As for the boos, Ball acknowledged he heard them, but seemed unaffected.“It’s their home,” he said. “I’d boo too if I was a fan.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
