Kendrick Duckworth is Kendrick Lamar, Pulitzer recipient and winner of 12 GRAMMY awards.  Solána Rowe is the official songwriting name of SZA. Together, their “All The Stars” led the charge that added Black Panther’s origin story to the Marvel universe and became the cornerstone of the movie’s soundtrack. Their GRAMMY-winning co-writers for “All The Stars,” Al Shux, Sounwave and Top Dawg are also known as Al Shuckburgh, Mark Spears & Anthony Tiffith respectively.”Boo’d Up” (performed by Ella Mai)The R&B hit “Boo’d Up catapulted Ella Mai into the national spotlight, fueling her breakout year as an artist. Co-writer Larrance Dopson or Rance has been nominated twice before and Dijon McFarlane is better known as DJ Mustard. Co-writer Joelle James is a singer/songwriter and producer, who performed at Showtime at the Apollo when she was age 11, and has collaborated as a grown-up on duets with Chris Brown.”God’s Plan” (performed by Drake)”October’s Very Own” GRAMMY winner Drake, nominated as Aubrey Graham, co-wrote the moving “God’s Plan” with talented collaborators Daveon Jackson, Brock Korsan, GRAMMY winner Noah “40” Shebib, and previously nominated Cardo and Boi-1da, the stage names of Ron LaTour and Matthew Samuels. The song succeeded on release with both Drake’s loyal fans and new listeners, spending double-digit weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.”In My Blood” (performed by Shawn Mendes)Shawn Mendes, a chart-topping young singer/songwriter, worked with a crew of long-time collaborators to pen his biggest hit of the year, “In My Blood.” These are singer/songwriter and producer Teddy Geiger, songwriter and producer Scott Harris and Geoffrey Warburton. Together their writing has made millions of hearts beat faster with sincere messages that musically represent Mendes himself.”The Joke” (performed by Brandi Carlile)Working with GRAMMY-winning songwriter and producer Dave Cobb, singer/songwriter Brandi Carlile added to her canon of originals with “The Joke.” The twin Hanseroth brothers, Phil and Tim, who co-wrote “The Joke” also play guitar and bass on the song. “I wrote ‘The Joke’ about a reckoning and a revolution and a time that’s coming when we’ll realize that love has already conquered the world and pick it back up,” says Carlile about the powerful and uplifting song.”The Middle” (performed by Zedd, Maren Morris & Grey)”The Middle” shows off the vocals of GRAMMY-winning country singer Maren Morris, over a highly danceable beat. GRAMMY winner Anton Zaslavski, better known as Zedd, co-wrote the song with Kyle and Michael Trewartha, who are the duo Grey, as well as four other hitmakers including Sarah Aarons, who has written for Grey before and for many hip young artists, Jordan K. Johnson, Stefan Johnson, and Marcus Lomax, the latter three who are songwriters and producers from The Monsters And The Strangerz team in Miami.”Shallow” (performed by Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper)”Shallow” is the lone eligible song from Lady Gaga’s A Star Is Born hit soundtrack album. It was co-written by the six-time GRAMMY-winning diva and three collaborators. Singer/songwriter and punk guitarist Anthony Rossomando rocked with previous nominee Andrew Wyatt and five-time GRAMMY-winning songwriter and producer Mark Ronson. Gaga has added her starring role as Ally in the film to her impressive series of distinct expressions of self, inspiring millions to draw on the inner creativity and courage that can be heard in the lines and melodies on “Shallow.””This Is America” (performed by Childish Gambino)Released in May, “This Is America” and its sensational cultural commentary helped usher in a big summer for GRAMMY winner Childish Gambino, real name Donald Glover. The song was co-written with long-time collaborator Ludwig Göransson, who also had the lead “Music by” credit on the soundtrack for 2018’s Black Panther. Our oral history of the pair’s Awaken My Love anticipates the messages of “This Is America” by Glover’s comment that the GRAMMY-nominated album had been a challenge to create while “America [was] going through a lot.” H.E.R.Photo by Prince Williams/Wireimage Cardi BPhoto: Dan MacMedan/WireImage TLC Photo: Alison Buck/Getty Images Backstage At The 2019 GRAMMYs | Photo Gallery 61st GRAMMY Awards: Full Nominees & Winners List Who Is Eligible For The Best New Artist GRAMMY?

Twitter suspends accounts in Howard Schultz disinformation effort

first_img Comment Share your voice Tags Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is considering running as an independent presidential candidate in the 2020 election. Joshua Lott/Getty Images It’s time to wake up and smell the coffee. Since late January, Twitter has suspended several accounts that pretend to support Howard Schultz’s political ambitions but are actually pushing other agendas. On Thursday, Twitter suspended three more accounts for violating its policies.Schultz hasn’t officially announced he’s running for president, but the businessman has said he’s considering an independent run for the White House. Since his announcement in late January, several accounts pretending to support the former coffee shop executive have popped up on Twitter.On Thursday, Twitter suspended the accounts @GaysForSchultz, @PresSchultz2020, and @HowardJSchultz. The @HowardJSchultz account described itself as “Millennials for Schultz.” Before they were suspended, all three accounts were posting content from the “alt-right,” a loosely knit movement of white nationalists and neo-Nazis.The @GaysForSchultz account responded to tweets about Ruth Bader Ginsburg conspiracy theories, while the @PresSchultz2020 account posted anti-Muslim content alongside posts supporting Schultz’s presidential ambitions. The three accounts violated Twitter’s “Fake Accounts” policy, according to a person familiar with the suspensions. While parody accounts of Schultz are still on Twitter, these three accounts were considered “fake and misleading.”Schultz didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.screen-shot-2019-02-28-at-4-34-12-pmOne of the suspended accounts. Screenshot by Alfred Ng/CNET Creating fake social-media profiles tied to politics isn’t new. During the 2016 US presidential election, Russian operatives made fan pages on Facebook and accounts on Twitter supporting third-party candidates, such as Jill Stein, with the intention of pulling votes away from Hillary Clinton, the Democratic candidate.  In late January, Twitter suspended the accounts @Blacks4Schultz and @GOP4Schultz, the former for operating multiple accounts. The @Blacks4Schultz account had a stock-photo image of an African-American man with “Howard” edited onto his shirt.  The most prominent account was “@Women_4_Schultz,” an account created by Jacob Wohl, a conservative activist who bragged to USA Today about his plans to create fraudulent Twitter profiles and promote candidates considered less likely to defeat President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. Wohl’s fake accounts, along with his own Twitter profile, were suspended last week for violating the social network’s policies, “specifically creating and operating fake accounts,” a Twitter representative said. The strategy was taken right out of Russia’s disinformation playbook, by setting up fake accounts to allege support for candidates who have a weaker shot at the White House, Ben Nimmo, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council’s digital forensic research lab, said.The other suspended Schultz accounts aren’t tied to Wohl, according to a person familiar with the situation. Some accounts pretending to support Schultz are still active on Twitter. The social network allows parody profiles as long as they don’t violate Twitter’s rules. That could be why Wohl’s @Women_4_Schultz account was suspended while @WomenForSchultz, a parody of former Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s “Women for Cohen” account, still remains. Social networks are gearing up for a flood of disinformation as the 2020 US presidential election draws closer. It proved to be an effective tool for Russian operatives in 2016, and US intelligence officials now consider disinformation a global threat. The slow drip of Schultz accounts getting suspended is just a small example of the flood of disinformation social networks are expecting over the next year.  “One of the main worries after the Russian operation was exposed was that users in America would copy it,” Nimmo said. “We’ve already seen reported attempts in the Alabama special Senate election, targeting potential Republican voters. Now it looks like we’re seeing similar activity targeting Democrats. It’s a bad sign before 2020.”Originally published on Feb. 28. Update, March 4 at 7:04 a.m.: To add details on why these accounts were suspended.center_img 1 Politicslast_img read more

Gold monetization scheme Deposits above 500grams without naming sources to be taxed

first_imgBe clear about the income sources before depositing gold over 500grams under the gold monetization scheme (GMS), as the government will levy income tax on such deposits on failing to name the sources.The idea behind the move is to make sure that the scheme does not get exploited to convert black money to white.”This is not a black money immunity scheme and normal taxation laws will be applicable,” Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said.Aiming to reduce the gold imports by the country, the government last week approved Gold Bond Scheme (GBS) and the GMS, and said that there would be “no relaxation in know-your-customer (KYC) guidelines or the reporting requirements of banks.””Depositors may be informed by the banks that as per CBDT (Central Board of Direct Taxes) instructions…in the course of IT search u/s 132, gold jewellery to the extent of 500 grams per married lady, 250 grams per unmarried lady and 100 grams per male member of the family need not be seized by tax authorities, but the tax penalties, as applicable, will be levied,” Livemint reported, citing a government internal note dated 15 September.Imposing tax on gold deposits exceeding 500 grams is also aimed at making clear the tax implications from taking part in the scheme. The estimates shows gold held by households in the country currently stands at over 20,000 tonnes.”This is a very good move. It will be wrong to give any kind of special dispensation to any asset class. This provides clarity to small retail depositors that they will not be subject to income-tax scrutiny and at the same time, ensures that the scheme is not misused. Why should retail depositors be subject to scrutiny under this scheme when they are not asked any questions when they use their gold holdings as a collateral to get a loan,” said Somasundaram PR, managing director, India, World Gold Council.According to the guidelines, banks are not permitted to use gold deposits to meet their statutory liquidity ratio and cash reserve ratio requirements. In the earlier draft, banks were allowed to do so.India imports about 800 to 1,000 tonnes of gold annually and is the world’s second largest consumer of the yellow metal. The two schemes are expected to help in curtailing country’s metal imports.last_img read more
