Melbourne upstarts The Prize are living proof that no matter the situation there is a way.Forming in early 2021 during the Global Pandemic, and without the normal music support networks usually available to a fledgling band, The Prize pushed forward regardless. They first set about writing music before establishing their name and by the end of that year found themselves performing in front of a sold out show supporting CIVIC at the Croxton Bandroom. And what's more, this was the band's first time on stage.Since then The Prize have released a highly successful debut EP, 'Wrong Side Of Town', and have just finished a national tour supporting The Chats.It's been a whirlwind ride for the young band, and they aren't finished just yet.Vocalist/drummer Nadine Muller joined HEAVY to chat about all things relating to The Prize starting with the response to 'Wrong Side Of Town'."We were very surprised," she smiled. "We released the EP maybe three weeks ago now, and it sold out in 24 hours on line so that was pretty cool. We put that out through Anti Fade Records, which is a Melbourne based label, and yeah, the response has been really great. We've kept a few copies to sell at our launch this weekend so you can still get it through us."In the full interview Muller talks about the musical direction of 'Wrong Side Of Town', the thought process going into a debut EP, the formation of the band during COVID and how they managed to work around it, their blend of power pop and old school rock and where it came from, playing in front of a sold out crowd for their first gig, the recent tour with The Chats, their upcoming EP launch shows and more.Intro track THE VIOLENT INZIDENT 'Triggered'

Som barn klev han in på Börshuset i Stockholm och började hänga med sjuttiotalets daytraders. Så småningom blev han själv börsmäklare och skapade senare en egen bankverksamhet, Civic och därefter ett av landets första riskkapitalbolag – Affärsstrategerna. Det var härliga tider. Men motgångarna var flera och allvarliga. Tillståndet rök för Civic och avnoteringen av Affärsstrategerna skedde under viss turbulens. Samtidigt har CG Fridh alltid fortsatt att blicka framåt. Vi möter en evigt nyfiken investerare med en optimistisk syn på själva entreprenörskapet. Dagens avsnitt tar avstamp på Börshuset 1976, en era då finansbranschen befinner sig i en brytningstid, vidare till Fingerprint Cards och nyare teknikbolag.Intervjun kom till efter att programledare Helene Rothstein hade läst hans bok “Bakom börsens kulisser” som är skriven tillsammans med journalisten Ulrika Fjällborg och utgiven vid Ekerlids förlag.

As she continues to be a remarkable composer, she's fulfilling her passion of wanting to live by 100 years and seeing that music becomes more accessible to individuals who really want and need it. Tune in this episode and be inspired on how creativity impacts society and how you can navigate the world of music despite being bombarded with biases and different gender or race-related conundrums.Currently serving as Composer-in-Residence with the Philadelphia Orchestra and included in the Washington Post' s list of the 35 most significant women composers in history, identity has always been at the center of composer/pianist Gabriela Lena Frank's music. Born in 1972 to a mother of Peruvian/Chinese ancestry and a father of Lithuanian/Jewish descent, Gabriela explores her multicultural American heritage through her compositions. In 2017, Gabriela founded the award-winning Gabriela Lena Frank Creative Academy of Music, a non-profit training institution held on her two rural properties in Boonville, CA for emerging composers from a broad array of demographics and aesthetics. Civic outreach is an essential part of Gabriela's work. She has volunteered extensively in hospitals and prisons, with her current focus on developing the music school program at Anderson Valley High School, a rural public school of modest means with a large Latino population in Boonville, CA.In the 2022-23 season, she will see the premiere of her first opera, El último sueño de Frida y Diego with Pulitzer playwright Nilo Cruz, co-commissioned by San Diego Opera and San Francisco Opera.
This lecture was recorded live at The Institute of World Politics on September 15, 2022. This lecture was sponsored by the Jack Miller Center. ( https://jackmillercenter.org/ ) About the Lecture The Constitution of the United States of America is a practical document, laying out rules for managing public affairs through the offices of government. Although the Constitution does not mention the word “virtue”, George Washington and John Adams, among many others, asserted that the republic could not function without it. But how does virtue function civically? In other words, what is civic about virtue? This address will explore the civic character of virtue, trying to understand not why it is necessary, but how it operates. About the Speaker Dr. Geoffrey M. Vaughan is a professor of political science at Assumption University and a Visiting Fellow at the James Madison Program for American Ideals and Institutions at Princeton University. His publications emphasize the modern period from Hobbes to Habermas, but he has also published on literature with a forthcoming piece on the Natural Law in the tales of Sherlock Holmes. He is writing on the role of the philosopher-king in modern political thought and a book on the meaning of American citizenship.

Activists have been campaigning behind the scenes for years now to change the U.S. Constitution to limit the federal government, with implications for education, health care and the environment. In this episode, we talk with former Senator Russ Feingold, President of the American Constitution Society, and Peter Prindiville, a non-resident fellow at the Stanford Constitutional Law Center about their new book, The Constitution in Jeopardy. Feingold and Prindiville trace the origins and developments of Article V of the U.S. Constitution and its provision and the ways in which it embodies an underappreciated tension that the Constitution both reflected and embedded between institutionalist theories of democracy and governance and more radical grassroots theories of resistance and change. They caution that a Constitutional Convention could run away and fundamentally alter our nation's laws and civic life. Links in this episode: The Constitution in Jeopardy Public Affairs Books

We live in polarizing times that seem to affect every corner of our society. Could the solution to polarization be friendship? That's what this episode's guest proposes. We're listening in on a recent talk delivered at Upper House by sociologist Angel Adams Parham, titled “Civic Friendship & Christian Faith in Polarized Times.” While it might sound trite to say all we need is friendship, Angel challenges us to engage with a tradition of thinking about civic and political friendship stretching from ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle to contemporary political theorist Danielle Allen. Angel asks each of us to explore intellectual and spiritual topics in the context of friendship and community. Angel Adams Parham is Associate Professor of Sociology and senior fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture (IASC) at the University of Virginia. In July she co-authored with Anika Prather The Black Intellectual Tradition: Reading Freedom in Classical Literature.

Over 100 New York schools piloted the program during the last school year, and in this episode, I speak to a district administrator who oversaw the rollout of the Seal of Civic Readiness in her large upstate New York district. Even though this episode focuses on one state's policy, it holds lessons for states around the country and perhaps countries around the world, so please stay tuned, even if you're far from New York. Lisa Kissinger has worked as a social studies teacher at the middle and high school levels and now serves as the Academic Administrator for Social Studies Education in the Shenendehowa Central School District, which is a about twenty miles north of Albany and has about 3000 students on one high school campus. In this episode, I talk to Lisa about how and why the state developed the Seal of Civic Readiness, requirements for earning the Seal, how exactly students at Shenendehowa High School earned the Seal on their diplomas, challenges and successes of the program's first year, how she expects her school's program to expand opportunities for students to earn the Seal, and her advice for educators elsewhere who are interested in this type of work.

Honda's HR-V was always an affordable compact crossover. The second generation 2023 model is larger… on the outside. With a new independent rear suspension, it's far more comfortable for road trips now. It trades the Fit architecture for a Civic-rich platform with better seats and best-in-class cabin. It does lose the rear Magic Seat and the wedgy design though. Tom Voelk travels to Stevenson, WA to check out the Sport and EX-L models, both with improved Real Time AWD.
