Midweeks

Midweeks

Midweeks are lists of sales figures for music albums and singles in the United Kingdom during the period between the weekly chart publication on Sundays. They are officially known as "sales flashes" but more frequently referred to as midweeks as they are released on Wednesdays. Midweeks were formerly only available to music industry insiders who paid the Official Charts Company a fee for the data. The figures help management and record companies gauge how well their artists are selling in advance of the official announcement of the charts on Sunday evening. The first figures of the week are released on Wednesdays based on sales since the start of the chart week on Sunday. This allows a sales strategy to be modified during the week of a single's release based on its performance, e.g. more advertising or media appearances for the artist, in the hope of boosting the final chart position at the end of the week. However, precisely because of their role in predicting the final chart, midweeks have always been highly sought after by music enthusiasts and fans of artists who are releasing albums or singles. Before midweeks started being officially published, those who received the figures were prohibited from re-distributing them but they were always leaked and several websites, blogs and forums published them. The OCC occasionally threatened legal action, but generally turned a blind eye so long as actual sales figures were avoided. Many showbiz columns in tabloid newspapers on Wednesdays also announced who was likely to be number one on Sunday.

Crosaire

Crosaire

John Derek Crozier (12 November 1917 – 3 April 2010), under the pseudonym "Crosaire", was the compiler of the "Irish Times crossword" from its inception in 1943 until his death. As he was the sole compiler for 68 years, the crossword itself became known as "the Crosaire" by metonymy. It is a cryptic crossword, in contrast to the "Simplex crossword" which soon came to be published alongside it. Crozier's pseudonym "Crosaire" is a play on his own surname and crosaire, the Irish for "crossroads".He retained an idiosyncratic approach to compilation; his crosswords never came to conform to the standards developed in Britain by "Ximenes". The day he died saw puzzle No 14,120 published; The Irish Times crossword editor estimated there were a year's worth of his puzzles remaining to be published.He was born in Dublin and educated at Castle Park preparatory school in Dalkey and Repton School in England. He graduated from Trinity College, Dublin in 1940. He worked in administration at the Guinness Brewery in St. James's Gate. He was introduced to editor Bertie Smyllie at an Irish Times party in a Dublin pub on Christmas Eve 1942, where he mentioned his hobby of compiling crosswords. Smyllie commissioned him and the first Crosaire was printed on 13 March 1943. Initially it appeared weekly on Saturdays, with Wednesdays added in 1950, Tuesdays in 1955, and a daily puzzle from 1982.In 1948 Crozier emigrated to Southern Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, to work as a tobacco and maize farmer in Sinoia, now Chinhoyi. He found farming difficult and the meagre income from his puzzles was important. In the 1962 Southern Rhodesian general election, he stood for the United Federal Party in the Gwebi constituency, losing to Rhodesian Front candidate James Graham, 7th Duke of Montrose. From 1963 to 1989, he taught at St George's College in Salisbury, now Harare. His puzzles were often delivered to Ireland through visitors from abroad to avoid the vagaries of the Zimbabwe postal system. He travelled to Dublin in 1993 for the 50th anniversary of his first puzzle, during which he appeared on The Late Late Show and at a forum for 400 fans chosen by lottery. He died at his home in Nyanga, aged 92. A memorial service was held at St George's College, attended by his three sons.Roy Earle (using the pseudonym Mac An Iarla) took over as the compiler of the Crosaire following Crozier's death, with his crosswords appearing between Monday, 24 October 2011 and Saturday, 9 June 2012. The Crosaire has since been compiled by "Crossheir."

Hawlati

Hawlati (Kurdish for "citizen") is an independent Kurdish newspaper, published in Sulaymaniyah, Iraqi Kurdistan and London. Tariq Fatih is the owner of the paper. Hawlati is a biweekly newspaper issued by Ranj Publishing House, published on Sundays and Wednesdays. The current editor is Kamal Rauf. The newspaper first appeared on 5 November 2000. The BBC referred to the launch of Hawlati as the birth of independent media in Iraq. One of the founders, Asos Hardi, is the son of the Kurdish poet Ahmad Hardi. Hawlati claims to be the first independent newspaper in the region since the fall of Saddam Hussein. To prove its transparency, the paper made a point of publishing its quarterly financial reports in the paper itself. The paper also had to cope with the lack of professional journalists in Iraq. The London edition was launched in April 2009. Hawlati is one of two independent newspapers in Iraqi Kurdistan - the other is Awene, which was established by a number of journalists, including Hardi, after their split from Hawlati. The newspaper’s independent stance has frequently brought it into trouble with the authorities. In 2008, the former editor, Abad Arif, was arrested and released on bail after a suit bought by Iraqi President Jalal Talabani for an article in the newspaper alleging corruption in the Iraqi Government. He received a heavy fine for this article. In 2008 Hawlati was voted the most popular newspaper in Iraqi Kurdistan

Atilogwu

Atilogwu

Atilogwu is a traditionally spirited youth dance from the Igbo ethnic group of Nigeria that focuses on vigorous body movement and often includes acrobatics. In the Igbo language, the word itself "Atilogwu" translates into "has magic—as in sorcery/ witchcraft—been put into it?"The name stems from rumors that bewitchment or magic potions had to be involved if the children of the village could perform so exuberantly and energetically, while making it look so effortless. The tempo of the dance matches the tempo of the music, which is dependent on the beat of the drum and "ogene," a metal gong instrument. The dance is usually performed during festivals and the festivity will also include exotic dishes created from authentic Nigerian recipes, served buffet style.HISTORY OF ATILOGWU The History of Ezeagu Atilogwu Posted by admin on 17 November 2011 Ezeagu is endowed with a rich cultural heritage, and traditional festivals and dances announce the arrival and departure of the various seasons of the year. Ogugo-Chi, Akanu, Oku Owa-Ito, Ibono Okochi, Ibono Udu-Mii, Mgba Ndi-Omu, Mgba Une n’Une, Owhuwhu-Ji and Mgba Ogwu are principal festivals, while the international-famed Ezeagu Atilogwu dance remains the cynosure at traditional dance jamborees in Enugu State and in other parts of Nigeria. Some of the most famous Igbo dances include Atilogwu, Abigbo, Egwu Amala, Egwu Ogene, Ode, Odebara, Nkwa, Mkpokiti, Akwunechenyi, Nkwa Umuagbogho, Nkwa Nwite, Ikorodo, Egwu Ubo, Okanga, Egedege, Adamma, Mgbaga, Agbacha Ekuru Nwa, Egwu Ijele, Ntukpo, Odegelu, Igede and Igba-Udugongo. Atilogwu is an amalgamation or montage of five dances – Anam, Ogwulogwu, Anaku, Ochanja and Adunjanja. For some others, it is that of Mgbaga, Ogwulogwu, Otiokpokpo, Ochufulu and Egwu-Igba. It dominates every other dance in Ezeaguland because of its magnificent rhythms and physical acrobatic movements formed from elaborations and modifications of the afore-mentioned dances. Other areas that feature the Atilogwu include: Ugbanu, Ebenebe, Igbo-Ukwu and the people of the Anambra Basin, but Ezeagu people have passed the art from one group to another so that it is now synonymous with them. Ezeagu Atilogwu (Atilogwu Ezeagu) was born in 1947, in Lagos. Hitherto, the vogue was the Ogwulogwu and Ubo Uya Kanga dances which were taught by one Umeayo Ubeyi. Clement Onwumelu of the Nigerian Railways returned home and bought all the instruments of the Atilogwu for the Ezeagu Improvement Union, Lagos. This was possible because, according to remembered history, a youth organization of Aguobu Iwollo had travelled to Ebenebe in Awka in 1942 to learn the Atilogwu. It was from them that this dance style became very popular and spread throughout the length and breadth of Ezeaguland. To attain perfection in the art of performing the Atilogwu, two experts were invited from home to Lagos to teach the dance. These were Ofodile Amaka of Ugwuike, Iwollo, and Simon Ndu alias Major. Leonard Aliozo Nkedife, a Senior Technical Officer in the then Post and Telegraph (P & T) Department became both the Chairman of the Ezeagu Improvement Union as well as the leader of the Atilogwu group. There was a policy that all the male children of Ezeagu up to the age of 14 years, living in and around Lagos metropolis, must take part in the weekly rehearsals. Students, wards, workers, apprentices, etc., were all "conscripted" into the Atilogwu. That was how Godwin Ofor, then in Standard 5, joined the Atilogwu. Rehearsals were held in the evenings of Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, at Surulere for about 4 hours.
