Jack White Releases New Video Of Song He Wrote For Danger Mouse & Daniel Luppi [Watch]

first_imgWhen super producer Danger Mouse and composer Daniel Luppi came to Jack White to write lyrics for a project they were working on, White acquiesced. With the songs not being his own, he had a difficult time grasping the concept. It was the first time in his career that he would actually write something for another artist. So, what did he do? He “quit” his job and began driving around Nashville with a handheld recorder, listening to the instrumental versions of songs and just singing anything that came into his head.As he drove around, one particular arrangement came together, which went on to become the song the “The Rose With the Broken Neck.” In April of 2015 at the Pink Garter Theatre in Jackson, WY, during his Acoustic Tour, White performed the song. Video of that performance has been released, which features White, Lillie Mae (mandolin), Fats Kaplin (fiddle), and Dominic Davis (upright bass) playing a beautiful and haunting version of the track.

Colombia and Honduras Work Together on Educational Issues

first_imgBy Colombian War College December 29, 2016 Major General Juan Carlos Salazar Salazar, president of the Colombian War College (ESDEGUE, per its Spanish acronym), and Brigadier General Jorge Arnoldo Fuentes Hernández, provost of Honduras’s Defense University, signed an academic cooperation agreement between both educational institutions in late November. The agreement was formalized on the principles of alignment and mutual support between the two Latin American countries. The joint effort calls for student and teacher exchanges, sharing scientific research, and other activities of common interest that may allow for the best use of human talent, infrastructure, and teamwork in educational, training, and specialization programs. It also deals with the exchange of information about graduate programs and the development of joint research projects and activities that may contribute to solving their shared national defense and security issues. In the official ceremony, the president of ESDEGUE recalled the transnational realities and threats common to the region, and emphasized the need to join forces to confront them. “No one is able to solve these problems alone. That is why we need each other,” he said. The provost of Honduras’s Defense University celebrated the signing of the cooperation agreement and highlighted the vast experience Colombia has in the field. “We know that accords are needed with other countries that are much more developed than Honduras. That is why this accord with Colombia is needed,” he stated. The mission of Honduras’s Defense University is to provide training and specialization to professionals in the military, aeronautical, and naval sciences, and to develop their leadership, technical, educational and administrative capabilities. It also includes providing them with a solid ethical and moral formation that will allow them to plan the defense of their homeland, the strengthening of their state, and the peace and stability of their democracy. The Colombian War College provides an interdisciplinary educational approach to training military strategy leaders, as well as national and international civilian leaders to face security and defense challenges.last_img read more
