In 1963, the conservative British government was shaken to its foundations by the Profumo Scandal. The central character in this disastrous affair was John Profumo, Britain's minister of war, who had become sexually involved with call-girl Christine Keeler, whose "sponsor" was high-priced osteopath Dr. Stephen Ward. Fancying himself a dashing international adventurer, Ward had also offered Christine to alleged Soviet spy Eugene Ivanov. Another of Ward's stable, Mandy Rice-Davies, allegedly had slept with numerous British and American luminaries. The whole sordid story, which ended with Ward's suicide and Profumo's public disgrace, was recounted with relish in director Michael Caton-Jones's Scandal, which featured John Hurt as Stephen Ward, Joanne Whalley-Kilmer as Christine Keeler, Ian McKellan as Profumo, Bridget Fonda as Mandy Rice-Davies, and Jeroen Krabbe as Ivanov. In its original form, the film was ripe enough to court an X-rating; post-production trimming enabled it to squeak by with an R.

Christine Keeler’s name is as synonymous with the sixties sexual revolution as the Pill. Having found fame and success as a model—the portrait of her naked astride a chair is iconic—her short affair with the Minister for War, John Profumo, led to his downfall and the end of Harold Macmillan’s Conservative government, and was at the heart of the social and political earthquake that followed. She became the subject of scandal, intrigue, and gossip, and was tried for perjury and briefly jailed following the death of Stephen Ward, the socialite who had introduced her to Profumo.

The Skatalites brought the sound of Jamaica to the world. At the start of the 1960s, in the space of just a couple of years Don Drummond, Tommy McCook, Jackie Mittoo, Ernest Ranglin, Johnny ‘Dizzy’ Moore, Lloyd Knibbs, Lloyd Brevett and others defined the exciting beat of ‘Ska’ as the sound of newly independent Jamaica.

If "Scandal" (1989) was not a fairly accurate recounting of Britain's John Profumo Affair (1963), the characters and events would be too weird to be considered plausible fiction. Defense Minister Profumo's attempt to refute allegations of his involvement with Christine Keeler ultimately brought down the 10 year Conservative Party government back in the mid-1960's. "Scandal recreates these events and gives the viewer a glimpse into the personalities and possible motives of the main players in this political soap opera.

Le cloporte est frappé d'une malédiction : les Wolbachia, des bactéries parasites, transforment les mâles en femelles. Le sort de la chenille du papillon n'est guère plus enviable. Elle héberge la larve d'une guêpe qui jour après jour la dévore de l'intérieur. Quant au gammare, petit crustacé des étangs, c'est le ver Microphallus qui s'empare de son cerveau et le rend complètement fou. Bienvenue sur terre. Bienvenue dans le monde des parasites, pique-assiettes et autres profiteurs. Impossible de leur échapper, ils sont partout et prennent toutes les formes …

Longtime members of Fleetwood Mac, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie have joined together to record their first-ever album as a duo. The collaboration began three years ago, when McVie rejoined Fleetwood Mac for the group’s “On With The Show” tour. The pair went in to record new material prior to rehearsals for the tour and their natural creative chemistry was reignited. Simply titled LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM/CHRISTINE McVIE, the 10-song album has been released this June, followed by a run of special U.S. concerts.

The new album from Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie feels like a big, warm hug. The great melodies, intimate harmonies and terrific arrangements are instantly recognisable as coming from two of the band’s songwriters yet they’re new and intriguing enough to make it more than just another side project from an iconic group.

Christine Jensen leads the Orchestre national de jazz de Montréal in two large-scale works. First off comes a composition by Jensen herself – a five-movement work that pays tribute to great jazz artists who helped fashion her own style as both composer and improviser: John Coltrane, Lee Konitz, Wayne Shorter, Kenny Wheeler, and Jan Jarczyk (her first teacher).Then we hear a suite from Gershwin’s immortal opera Porgy and Bess in an arrangement by Gil Evans. This is the suite recorded by Miles Davis and his band, conducted by Evans, and released to great acclaim in 1959. It was one of the finest collaborations between Evans and Davis, and has gone down in jazz history as a monument of orchestral jazz. All the opera’s best-known numbers are here, including Bess, you is my woman now, It ain’t necessarily so, There’s a boat that’s leaving soon for New York, and of course Summertime.
