Free MP3 – Liszt’s Les Préludes

Get the MP3 download of Les Préludes by Franz Liszt, performed by the Luxembourg Radio Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Louis de Froment, free from the Classical Music Library at Alexander Street Press.

About the Album
This week’s download features Liszt’s Les Préludes. Les Préludes is the first orchestral work known as a symphonic poem, a one-movement genre developed by Liszt to move symphonic writing beyond the well-established four movement structure. Liszt composed thirteen symphonic poems in all, but Les Préludes is virtually the only one to secure a place in regular programming.

Get the free album from Alexander Street Press (DRM-Free).

Ice Cube Talks ‘Fist Fight’, Announces 25th Anniversary Edition of ‘Death Certificate’ with New Songs [Watch]

West coast legend Ice Cube recently paid a visit to Sway’s Universe while out promoting his new film Fist Fight.

During the interview, the OG of what’s now dubbed “Gangsta Rap”, talked about why he made the transition from hardcore MC to an on screen nice guy, which he contributes to the need for r “regenerating the fan base.”

“I noticed that my fans had kids,” Cube said. “They would come up trying to explain ‘this is Ice Cube,’ and their kids would be like ‘I don’t know who the hell you are.’ So I said, ‘OK, that’s a problem.’ I don’t want daddy having to explain to son, mother having to explain to daughter who I am. I need to do something that they like, so that’s when I decided I need to do a movie like Are We There Yet?

Cube went on to say that he initially introduced the softened version of himself with the release of the 1992 smash hit “Today was a Good Day”, which many people in his camp was against at the time.

“When I did ‘It Was a Good Day,’ people in my camp was saying ‘man you can’t make that kind of record. You talk about the hard shit. Whatchu doin’?’ And I was like ‘nah, I talk about the real shit,’” Cube continued.“If I’m having a good day, goddammit I’m going to make a record about it, and y’all just gon’ listen to it. It’s not some caricature, it’s supposed to be the real.”

In regards to the 25th anniversary of one the most prolific albums he’s released to date, Death Certificate, Cube says he has a lot planned for fans to celebrate the album’s success, including a re-release with three new songs.

“We’re gonna drop the 25th anniversary edition of Death Certificate,” Cube said. “We got three new songs on there. A song called ‘Only One Me,’ another song called ‘Good Cop, Bad Cop,’ and then a song called ‘Dominate the Weak.’”

Cube also touched on his newly founded basketball league coming this summer, revealing that it will be a three-on-three league.

“It’s actually turning out to be something real cool.” Cube said. “We’re gonna go from city to city and we’re going to play four games in that city. You’re gonna see all the teams play, and there’s gonna be a final four, kind of all-star atmosphere around these events.”

Florida Dermatologist Wrongly Diagnosed Patients With Cancer — And Pocketed MILLIONS!

This is beyond fucked up!!!

A Florida dermatologist spent YEARS misdiagnosing patients with skin cancer on purpose just so he could reap money from insurance companies!

Dr. Gary Marder of Port St. Lucie has agreed to pay $18 million to reimburse the government on Medicare payments made to patients who were never sick with any type of cancer.

In addition to the misdiagnosis of several patients, the ASSHOLE recommended biopsies and radiation therapy to the patients when it was not needed at all. He then proceeded to bill their insurance companies.

Gloria Strumalo was one of Marder’s patients who underwent radiation therapy, which cost between $1,600 to $3,500 per session.

Strumalo said:

“I went for 20 days of 2 hours [of radiation].”

She also had no clue that she was going there for naught, saying:

“You just take their word. You trust your doctors.”

It wasn’t until Strumalo spoke to a different patient of Dr. Marder’s that she began to become suspicious. She then went to Dr. Ted Schiff for a second opinion and was told that she didn’t have cancer.

Dr. Schiff had previously seen many of Dr. Marder’s patients, who would come in for benign conditions like freckles and warts, but who had been told they had skin cancer.

He said:

“Sometimes we recognize patients just by the sheer number of biopsies done. By the number of procedures and the excessive use of radiation therapy done in an improper manner. In all my years in the medical field I’ve never seen anything like this. As doctors we take an oath to do no harm.”

Dr. Schiff reported Dr. Marder to the authorities, and a case was opened as far back as 2013 with the FBI and U.S. Attorney’s office getting involved.

Despite all of this, Dr. Marder’s license has not been revoked and he continues to work in his two practices in Okeechobee and Port St. Lucie.

All we can say is if you live in Florida, do NOT go to this man under any circumstances!

Hands-On With Apple’s New BeatsX Earphones

Apple’s long-awaited BeatsX Earphones became available for purchase this morning, giving Apple customers an alternative to the hard-to-find AirPods.

Priced at $149.95, BeatsX Earphones are wireless like AirPods, but are connected together with a cord that makes them easier to keep track of and better suited to active lifestyles. We managed to get our hands on a set of BeatsX Earphones to give MacRumors readers a closer look at Apple’s latest product.

Subscribe to the MacRumors YouTube channel for more videos.

BeatsX Earphones feature the same W1 chip that’s built into the AirPods, which makes pairing to any iOS device quick and simple, and because the BeatsX Earphones are connected via a cable, there’s a space for an in-line remote for controlling media playback, something missing from the AirPods.

The earphones charge via Lightning, and ship with four interchangeable eartip sizes and secure-fit wingtips to keep them in place. With a full charge, users can expect eight hours of playback from the BeatsX, and a five minute “Fast Fuel” charging feature offers two hours of playback.

BeatsX Earphones are now available from Apple’s online store and from many Apple retail stores around the world. Black and White models can be purchased starting today, while the Blue and Gray versions will be available later in the month. Online orders placed today in the United States will be delivered next week.

Modi faces biggest election test since 2014 landslide

FILE PHOTO - Indian Prime Minister Modi waves towards the crowd as he leaves after attending the Republic Day parade in New DelhiBy Rupam Jain and Tom Lasseter LUCKNOW, India (Reuters) – Prime Minister Narendra Modi faces his biggest electoral test since coming to power when the battleground state of Uttar Pradesh, which he swept three years ago, holds an election starting on Saturday. More broadly, voters will deliver a mid-term verdict on Modi and his nationalist party as India recovers from his boldest decision yet: to abolish 86 percent of the cash in circulation. The banknote ban, launched by Modi three months ago to purge the economy of untaxed income and proceeds of crime and corruption, has disrupted daily life and commerce, and caused the economy to slow.

De Blasio Administration Releases ‘Fact Sheet’ Calling Corruption Probes ‘Outside Reviews’

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — City Hall issued a new response Friday to questions about the two grand juries that are investigating the actions of Mayor Bill de Blasio and his aides.

As CBS2 Political Reporter Marcia Kramer reported, the mayor has released a “fact sheet.”

Apparently upset by headlines linking Mayor de Blasio to criminal investigations – and acutely aware of his desire to be reelected – the mayor’s press team used polite words to describe the probes.

The twin criminal investigations by U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance were called “this process,” “voluntary meetings, “these discussions,” and “outside reviews.”

“The Administration has and will continue to cooperate fully with these outside reviews,” the fact sheet reads.

On Friday, the mayor described the fact sheet as “the definitive – you know, your frequently-asked questions, your clear answers.”

The unanswered question is when exactly de Blasio plans to meet with federal prosecutors investigating whether he or his aides gave favorable treatment to donors, and also probing the controversial sale of the Rivington Nursing Home to a condominium developer who made a huge profit.

“The simple point on the U.S. Attorney is when that happens, we will tell you when it’s done,” de Blasio said.

The mayor said he will also set up a legal defense fund to pay his attorneys.

“I am not a billionaire like my predecessor,” he said. “There’s no way I could possibly cover these fees personally. It will have to be a legal defense fund model. We have not yet set that up. We will disclose the money and then we will further pay the bills.”

Mayoral aides did disclose that the mayor did not request immunity, nor was he offered immunity, for when he is questioned by the feds.
