Les Brown (bandleader)

Lester Raymond „Les“ Brown, Sr. (March 14, 1912 – January 4, 2001) was an American clarinetist, saxophonist, big band leader and composer, best known for his nearly seven decades of work with the big band Les Brown and His Band of Renown (1938–2001). The Band of Renown began in the late 1930s, initially as the group Les Brown and His Blue Devils, led by Brown while he was a student at Duke University. He was the first president of the Los Angeles chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences. The band now performs under the direction of his son, Les Brown, Jr.

Brown was born in Reinerton, Pennsylvania. He enrolled in the Conway Military Band School (later part of Ithaca College) in 1926, studying with famous bandleader Patrick Conway for three years before receiving a music scholarship to the New York Military Academy, where he graduated in 1932. Brown attended college at Duke University from 1932–1936. There he led the group Les Brown and His Blue Devils, who performed regularly on Duke’s campus and up and down the east coast. Brown took the band on an extensive summer tour in 1936. At the end of the tour, while some of the band members returned to Duke to continue their education, others stayed on with Brown and continued to tour, becoming in 1938 the Band of Renown. In 1942 he and his band concluded work on an RKO picture, „Sweet and Hot“; played at the Palladium Ballroom, Hollywood. A few years later, in 1945, this band brought Doris Day into prominence with their recording of „Sentimental Journey“. The song’s release coincided with the end of World War II in Europe and became an unofficial homecoming theme for many veterans. The band had nine other number-one hit songs, including „I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm“.

Les Brown and the Band of Renown performed with Bob Hope on radio, stage and television for almost fifty years. They did 18 USO Tours for American troops around the world, and entertained over three million people. Before the Super Bowls were televised, the Bob Hope Christmas Specials were the highest-rated programs in television history. Tony Bennett was „discovered“ by Bob Hope and did his first public performance with Brown and the Band.

The first film that Brown and the band appeared in was Seven Days‘ Leave starring Victor Mature and Lucille Ball. Rock-A-Billy Baby, a low-budget 1957 film, was the Band of Renown’s second and in 1963, they appeared in the Jerry Lewis‘ comedy The Nutty Professor playing their theme song „Leapfrog“.

Brown and the Band were also the house band for The Steve Allen Show (1959–1961) and the Dean Martin Variety Show (1965–1972). Brown and the band performed with virtually every major performer of their time, including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Nat „King“ Cole. The annual Les Brown Big Band Festival, started March 2006 in Les‘ hometown, features area big bands preserving the songs of the big band era. At the 2012 festival celebrating the 100th birthday anniversary, the town of Reinerton renamed the street near Les‘ birthplace to Les Brown Lane. In 2013 the his hometown of Reinerton, PA adopted as the town’s official slogan: Reinerton: The Town of Renown in honor of Les and his band.

Les Brown Sr. died of lung cancer in 2001, and was interred in the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles, California. He was survived by his wife Evelyn, son Les Jr., and daughter Denise. He was 88 years old at the time of his death.

His grandson, Jeff „Swampy“ Marsh, co-created the show Phineas and Ferb.

Brown was inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame in 2010.

In 2001, Les Brown, Jr., born 1940, became the full-time leader of the Band of Renown. They continue to perform throughout the world and have a regular big band show in Branson, Missouri. Brown Jr. also hosts a national radio show on the Music of Your Life network. Brown Jr. was a television actor in the 1960s (Gunsmoke, General Hospital, The Baileys of Balboa, Gilligan’s Island), a rock musician and producer who worked with Carlos Santana, and a concert promoter for many country music artists including Merle Haggard and Loretta Lynn. In 2004, Brown Jr. received the „Ambassador of Patriotism“ award from the POW Network.

Brandi Shearer

Brandi Shearer (born June 5, 1980) is an American singer and songwriter. She was born and raised in Oregon.

Brandi Shearer was raised on a rural farm in Oregon and was encouraged to sing and play music by her grandmother, which also led to her receiving a guitar as a gift from her father. In her teens, Shearer began to study classical guitar and voice, and won an opera scholarship to a local college. A student exchange program brought her to Hungary in Europe, where she became exposed to the music of a variety of American Jazz and Blues artists, including Billie Holiday. Subsequently, she dropped out of school and left her home and began performing in clubs and bars in Hungary and France.

In 2000, Shearer moved to San Francisco, California, and released her debut which featured contributions from jazz guitarist Ted Savarese. She also played rhythm guitar in Savarese’s jazz-oriented ensemble ‚Drizzoletto‘. During that period she split her time traveling back and forth from France and Hungary, earning her living performing. Shearer released two albums within a few months of each other in 2003 and 2004, ‚Music of a Saturday Night‘ and ‚Sycamore‘, Following this Amoeba Records owner David Prinz booked her for a live recording with the gypsy jazz Robin Nolan Trio in 2005. Various tours and performances followed, including an appearance with Nolan at Austin’s SXSW festival. Shearer released Close to Dark, her debut recording for Amoeba Records, in 2007.

Helen Carte

Helen Carte Boulter (born Susan Helen Couper Black; 12 May 1852 – 5 May 1913), also known as Helen Lenoir, was the second wife of impresario and hotelier Richard D’Oyly Carte. She is best known for her stewardship of the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company and Savoy Hotel from the end of the 19th century and into the early 20th century.

Born in Wigtown, Scotland, she attended the University of London from 1871-74 and pursued brief teaching and acting careers. In 1875, she met Richard D’Oyly Carte and soon became his assistant and business manager. She helped produce all of the Gilbert and Sullivan and other Savoy Operas, beginning with The Sorcerer in 1877 and for the rest of her life, and helped Carte with all of his business interests. One of her principal assignments was to superintend arrangements for American productions and tours of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas. Her grasp of detail and her diplomacy surpassed even that of her husband.

She married Richard D’Oyly Carte in 1888. During the 1890s, with Carte’s health declining, Helen took greater and greater responsibility for the businesses, taking full control upon his death in 1901. She remarried in 1902 but continued to own the opera company and run most of the Carte business interests until her death, when they passed to her stepson, Rupert D’Oyly Carte. Although the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company’s operations decreased after Richard’s death, Helen staged successful repertory seasons in London from 1906 to 1908, establishing that the Gilbert and Sullivan operas could continue to be revived profitably.

By the time of her death in 1913, the opera company had become a repertory touring company, and W. S. Gilbert had died. Helen hired J. M. Gordon to preserve the company’s unique style. In her will, she left the Savoy Theatre, the opera company and the Savoy Hotel to Rupert, and the company continued to operate continuously until 1982.

Susan Helen Couper Black (or Cowper Black in some sources) was born in Wigtown, Scotland, to George Couper Black (1820–c. 1874), procurator fiscal and banker, and his wife, Ellen, née Barham (1823–after 1877 from Penzance), the second of four siblings. One of her brothers, John McConnell Black, later became a well-known botanist. Her grandfather, Robert Couper, M.D., was a Scottish physician and poet.

She attended the University of London from 1871-74 and was a gifted student, passing the examinations for Special Certificates in mathematics and in logic and moral philosophy (the university did not award degrees to women until 1878). She also spoke several languages. She registered at the university as Helen Susan Black. After her studies, she taught mathematics and had a brief acting career, during which she changed her name to Helen Lenoir („Black“, in French). She appeared at the Gaiety Theatre in Glasgow, Scotland, in The Great Divorce Case. While a member of the Theatre Royal, in Dublin, Ireland in September 1875, Helen met Richard D’Oyly Carte. He was there to manage the first tour of Trial by Jury, and Helen became fascinated by his vision for establishing a company to promote English comic opera. She gave up her next engagement to join his theatrical organisation.

In 1877, Helen’s mother, then a widow, relocated with Helen’s sister and two brothers to Australia. Helen had just become secretary to Richard D’Oyly Carte and remained in London to help with production of The Sorcerer at the Opera Comique.

From the time that she was hired as Carte’s secretary, Helen was intensely involved in his business affairs and had a grasp of detail and organisational and diplomacy skills that surpassed even Carte’s. She became the business manager of the company and was also responsible for the Savoy Hotel, into which she introduced the new hydraulic passenger lifts. One of Helen’s early tasks was to produce the British copyright performance of The Pirates of Penzance in Paignton. She made fifteen visits to America to promote Carte’s interests, superintending arrangements for American productions and tours of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas. She also assisted in arranging American lecture tours for Oscar Wilde, Matthew Arnold and others. Helen, more than anyone else, was able to smooth out the differences between W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan, in the 1880s, to ensure that the two produced more operas together. She also tactfully and sympathetically dealt with the personal and professional problems of the actors in the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company casts. The editor of The Era wrote in her obituary, „She never took advantage of anybody; but I never heard of her letting anybody take advantage of her.“

In 1886, Carte raised Helen’s salary to £1,000 a year plus a 10% commission on the net profits of all business at his theatres. According to historian Jane Stedman, „When she demurred, he wrote, ‚You know very well, and so do all those who know anything about my affairs, that I could not have done the business at all, at any rate on nothing like the same scale, without you'“. Carte’s first wife had died in 1885, and Helen married Richard on 12 April 1888 in the Savoy Chapel, with Sir Arthur Sullivan acting as Carte’s best man.

The couple’s London home included the first private elevator. James McNeill Whistler, a client of Carte’s agency and friend of the Cartes, made an etching of Helen in 1887 or 1888, „Miss Lenoir“, and later helped to decorate the Cartes‘ home. Although some sources refer to Mrs. Carte as „Helen D’Oyly Carte“, this is incorrect, as D’Oyly was a given name, not a surname. Her married name was Helen Carte.[citation needed]

Throughout the 1890s, her health was declining, and Helen assumed more and more of the responsibilities for the opera company and other family businesses. In his 1922 memoir, Henry Lytton described Carte as follows:

In 1894, Carte hired his son Rupert D’Oyly Carte as an assistant. Rupert’s older brother, Lucas (1872–1907), a barrister, was not involved in the family businesses and died of tuberculosis at the age of 34. With no new Gilbert and Sullivan shows written after 1896, the Savoy Theatre put on a number of other shows for comparatively short runs, including several of Sullivan’s less successful operas. Young Rupert assisted Helen and W. S. Gilbert with the first revival of The Yeomen of the Guard at the Savoy in May 1897. In 1899, the theatre finally had a new success in Sullivan and Basil Hood’s The Rose of Persia.

Richard died in 1901 leaving the theatre, opera company and hotel to Helen, who assumed full control of the family businesses. She leased the Savoy Theatre to William Greet in 1901. She oversaw his management of the D’Oyly Carte Opera Company’s revival at the Savoy of Iolanthe, and several new comic operas including The Emerald Isle (1901; Sullivan and Edward German, with a libretto by Basil Hood), Merrie England (1902) and A Princess of Kensington (1903; both by German and Hood).

The last of these ran for four months in early 1903 and then toured. When A Princess closed at the Savoy, Greet terminated his lease, and Helen leased the theatre to other managements until 8 December 1906. She had married Stanley Carr Boulter, a barrister, in 1902, but she continued to use the surname Carte in her business dealings. Boulter assisted her in the Savoy businesses. She was a founder member of the Society of West End Theatre Managers, along with Frank Curzon, George Edwardes, Arthur Bourchier and sixteen others.

Her stepson Rupert took over his late father’s role as Chairman of the Savoy Hotel in 1903, which Helen continued to own. The years between 1901 and 1906 saw a decline in the fortunes of the opera company. The number of D’Oyly Carte repertory companies touring the provinces gradually declined until there was only one left, visiting often small centres of population. After the company visited South Africa in 1905, more than half a year elapsed with no professional productions of G&S in the British Isles. During this period, Helen and Rupert focused their attention on the hotel side of the family interests, which were very profitable.

In late 1906, Helen re-acquired the performing rights to the Gilbert and Sullivan operas from Gilbert (she already had those of Sullivan) and staged a repertory season at the Savoy Theatre, reviving the opera company and leasing the Savoy to herself. She persuaded the recently knighted Gilbert, now 71, to stage direct the productions in repertory, and once again she had to exercise the greatest tact, as Gilbert sometimes had difficulty accepting that he was no longer an equal partner and was taking no financial risk. Gilbert was angry that he had not been consulted regarding casting of the productions. The season, and the following one, were tremendous successes, revitalising the company. Contemporary accounts describe her taking three curtain calls with Gilbert on the opening night of the 1906 revival of The Yeomen of the Guard.

After the repertory seasons in 1906–08, however, the company did not perform in London again until 1919, only touring throughout Britain during that time. Carte wrote in 1911 that her health made it impossible for her to produce any more revivals at the Savoy. In March 1909, Charles H. Workman assumed management of the Savoy Theatre from the now frail Helen Carte Boulter. However, she continued to manage the rest of the family businesses with the assistance of Rupert. In 1911, the company hired J. M. Gordon, who had been a member of the company under Gilbert’s direction, as stage manager. Carte was also so generous that King George V granted to her the Order of the League of Mercy in 1912.

After another illness lasting several months, Helen died of a cerebral haemorrhage complicated by acute bronchitis in 1913, a week before her 61st birthday. A private funeral was held at Golders Green crematorium. In her will, she left the Savoy Theatre, the opera company and the Savoy Hotel to Rupert, bequests of £5,000 to each of her two brothers and smaller bequests to a number of friends and colleagues. She left the considerable residuary estate to her husband. The D’Oyly Carte Opera Company continued to operate continuously until 1982.

Carte has been portrayed in the films The Story of Gilbert and Sullivan (1953) by Eileen Herlie and in Topsy-Turvy (1999) by Wendy Nottingham. She was also portrayed in the British 1961 3-part TV series, Gilbert & Sullivan: The Immortal Jesters.[citation needed]

Revolutionary Committee of Puerto Rico

Puerto Rican Revolutionary Committee in New York

The Revolutionary Committee of Puerto Rico (Spanish: Comité Revolucionario de Puerto Rico) was founded by Puerto Rican exiles such as Juan Ríus Rivera, Ramón Emeterio Betances and José Francisco Basora living at the time in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. The committee was founded on January 8, 1867, and composed of Puerto Rican and Dominican patriots. The goal of the committee was to create a united effort by Cubans and Puerto Ricans to win independence from Spain. Early in the Cuban Ten Years‘ War, the Revolutionary Committee gave financial support, and weaponry to the Cuban independence efforts. Such weaponry included 400 Enfield rifles, 45 snider rifles, 110 carbines, 87 handguns and one cannon with 200 shells, culminated from hidden caches on Saint Thomas, Curaçao and Haiti.

On September 23, 1868, the Revolutionary Committee, led by Betances, declared independence in the city of Lares, Puerto Rico, calling it the Republic of Puerto Rico. Some 400-600 rebels gathered in the vicinity of Pezuela, on the outskirts of Lares. The rebels walked and rode to the town, arriving by midnight. The forces took over city hall, and looted stores and officies owned by „peninsulares“ (Spanish-born men), taking some of the store owners prisoner. By 2:00 AM, the Republic of Puerto Rico was proclaimed under the presidency of Francisco Ramírez Medina. The revolution was put down however by the Spanish militia and some 475 rebels imprisoned. The event became known as The Cry of Lares (Spanish: El Grito de Lares).

On December 8, 1895, the Puerto Rican Revolutionary Committee was established in New York City, where many exiles had gathered. This group promoted the ideal of Puerto Rican independence from Spain. It included as members, such participants of El Grito de Lares as Ramon Emiterio Betances, Juan Ríus Rivera, Juan de Mata Terreforte and Aurelio Méndez Martinez. The Committee named Terreforte as its Vice-President. In 1892, Terreforte and the members of the Revolutionary committee adopted the design of a flag similar to the Cuban flag, but with its colors inverted. This new flag, to represent the Republic of Puerto Rico, is still used on the island.

In 1897, Antonio Mattei Lluberas visited the Puerto Rican Revolutionary Committee in New York City. There he met with Emiterio Betances, de Mata Terreforte and Méndez Martinez; together they planned a major coup. Betances was to direct it, Mendez Mercado would organize it, and General Rius Rivera would command the armed forces. At the time Ríus Rivera, who had joined the Cuban Liberation Army and José Martí’s struggle for Cuban independence, was the Commander-in-Chief of the Cuban Liberation Army of the West.

Mattei Lluberas purchased 30,000 machetes, which were to be distributed amongst the rebels. He returned to Puerto Rico with a Puerto Rican flag and began to proceed with the rebellion plans.

The Spanish authorities found out about their plans. Mattei Lluberas demanded that the insurrection start immediately rather than in December. The other leaders feared that such a haste action would lead to the same disastrous results as had El Grito de Lares.

Mattei Lluberas and the Puerto Rican Commission in New York had been trying to convince President William McKinley to invade Puerto Rico for some time. After the US took control of Cuba, McKinley approved the invasion of Puerto Rico. A convoy of ships left Tampa, Florida and on July 21 another convoy departed from Guantánamo for a 4-day journey to Puerto Rico.

Under the terms of the Treaty of Paris of 1898, ratified on December 10, 1898, the United States annexed Puerto Rico.

Kongenitale Kontrakturale Arachnodaktylie

Carolina-eend

De Carolina-eend (Aix sponsa) is een vogel uit de familie van de eendachtigen (Anatidae).

De carolina-eend voedt zich met bessen, eikels, zaden en insecten.

Het verenkleed van de woerd is prachtig gekleurd, terwijl het vrouwtje bruingrijs is met witomrande ogen. De lichaamslengte bedraagt ongeveer 45 cm.

Deze kleurrijke verschijning komt voor op rustige poelen en rivieren van oostelijk Noord-Amerika. ’s Winters trekt hij naar het zuidelijk deel daarvan. Deze eend is vaak hoog in bomen aan te treffen en nestelt vaak in verlaten spechtenholen of in nestkasten hoog boven de grond. De vogel is tamelijk wintervast.

Een legsel bestaat uit 7 tot 10 lichtbruine eieren, die worden afgezet in een boomhol bij het water. Ze worden uitgebroed in ongeveer 30 dagen.

Het is een veel gehouden sierwatervogel die in het verleden wel eens is ontsnapt. In de Benelux is de Carolina-eend daarom een exoot die men wel eens in de natuur kan tegenkomen.
