Dassault Group Executive Says Shen Yun Is a Beautiful Discovery
Della.sun
2019-01-23    0 views
New York-based Shen Yun Performing Arts gave its Paris audience an experience of ancient Chinese civilization on Jan. 20.

Among the audience was Laurent Dassault, who holds key executive positions in the Marcel Dassault Group, a France-based group of companies with subsidiaries in aviation, aerospace, real estate, auctions, and even wine.

"I felt that there was a deep thought going into the Chinese culture, through its history," said Laurent Dassault, an executive Dassault Group. "And so it touches us Europeans a lot because we don't have all this history throughout our families and especially in this France that we love."

According to its program book, the artists tell stories with classical Chinese dance, including the creation myth of Chinese civilization, stories of dynasties, and legends from classic novels like “Journey to the West.” Shen Yun is the world’s premier classical Chinese dance company. Each year brings a new program, with a live orchestra blending Chinese instruments into a Western symphony and a digital backdrop blending stage and sky, the experience is an immersive one.

Dassault appreciated the incredible breadth of the production, and the depth of the content.

"Of course, especially today we need a reference," Mr. Dassault added. "We need history, and we need to be reassured by history to build the future, and thanks to Shen Yun we are reassured."

"It's lovely. A lot of flexibility, and a smooth grace," said Philippe Favre, president of the Board of Management. "A wonderful retrospective of Chinese civilization and the grace with which it moves."

"Impressions, they are beautiful," Goran Radonjic, director of International Relations at Fédération Française de BasketBall. "I tell you, all the things that happen from the far west, from a distance, they are very interesting for us Europeans. And I, as I know this culture, I always have attraction. I always loved all the things that I can see here at this show.

Shen Yun Enchants Paris Audiences With Colorful Display of Chinese Culture

2019-01-21    0 views
The dancers wore long flowing sleeves that rippled through the air as their bodies extended with each dance movement. This dance vignette was one of the classical Chinese dance pieces performed by Shen Yun Performing Arts in Paris over the weekend.

Frédéric Burband, vice chairman of the Regional Company of Statutory Auditors of Paris, said it was how the costumes blended with the spirit of the dance that stood out to him.

"I think the show is really great," Burband said. "Everything is beautiful. The sets, the choreography is sumptuous, really it's extraordinary."

"Very pleasant, very surprising too," Philippe Glineur, a motion designer and director, said. "There is a kind of harmony in all these colours, these dances, these movements, which is really very pleasant. It is very pretty."

"It's the first time in fact that we've participated that we've seen a kind of show," Dragos Barglason, a biologist at CHU Brugman, said. "I think it's unique."

Audience members watched the performance at Palais des Congrès in Paris and said they were learning about the history behind China’s ancient culture, as depicted through the stories presented on stage.

"Shen Yun invited us on a magnificent cultural-historical-artistic journey," Vincent Mirabel, an author of The history of cinema for Dummies, said. "It's very beautiful, so what I really liked at first was the costumes we're really in a harmony of colors.

"Then comes the music, magnificent, which allows us to bridge the gap between our own music and especially Chinese music. And then finally, everything starts to come alive. It's the dance—it's beautiful."

"For me, the poetry has dominated this moment and that is almost surprising," said Frédéric Doniczka, managing director of Cedaet. "Because so much work was put in to achieve such perfection—such a burst of colours, such movements—that it is quite magical. It is poetry that dominates."

"Already, it transports us to a different world, simply because it is an artistic world and here it allows us to extract ourselves a little bit from our daily lives. And here it is, to travel through the ages," Burband added. "I find it really a very beautiful success."

SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, US President:

"We had a very good meeting yesterday with North Korea. That was an incredible meeting. It lasted almost two hours and we've agreed to meet sometime probably the end of February. We've picked the country but we'll be announcing it in the future. Kim Jong un is looking very forward to it and so am I. We've made a lot of progress that has not been reported by the media. But we have made a lot of progress as far as denuclearization is concerned and we're talking about a lot of different things. But we've made tremendous progress that has not been reported unfortunately. But it will be. Things are going very well with North."

Shen Yun Performing Arts Marks Paris Anniversary

2019-01-20    0 views
Paris shares a 2019 milestone with New York, San Francisco, and Vancouver, Canada, among others. The classical Chinese dance company, Shen Yun Performing Arts, is visiting for the thirteenth year in a row.

“It's beautiful. It's beautiful," said Florence Gautier, a bank executive of CACEIS. "The dancers, the dancers are all more beautiful than each other, the costumes are just beautiful and then the story is fascinating and we get caught up in the show. There, that's beautiful.”

“I found the show superb, very beautiful costumes for both men and women, very beautiful dances," said Diego Migliore, a computer specialist. "A Chinese classical dance, I don't know, with acrobatics ... besides it's a very old civilization that's over 5,000 years old and we really discover everything, well, dynasties, dances, it's great. Honestly, I'm delighted.”

"Amazing, amazing," said Shane Morand, a co-founder of OrGano Gold International. "It was fascinating to see how the performers, it was like they were floating on the clouds, the way they were moving was beautiful, very beautiful."

"It's fabulous. It's fabulous because they're taking you somewhere. There are optical effects that are, that are wonderful," said Philippe De Moras, a vice president of High Tech Companies. "Anyway, I would say that you feel like you're going to the bottom of the screen with someone and that's quite extraordinary. And there are dances that are very, very well done, very well performed. I have a place that is quite fabulous, I have to admit, which makes me almost in the middle and very very well placed, which brings my eye right to the middle, I can see, as if there were a mirror, the dances. It's quite extraordinary."

According to its program book, the performance is an effort born from a mission to revive 5,000 years of divinely inspired Chinese culture and push back against 60 years of communist rule that have systematically nearly destroyed deeply held traditions.

"I think it helps people to really engage and to connect [to divine]," said Morand. "Yeah, and you can feel it in the performers, they really, when you look at them, you can see it in their faces that they're enjoying [it] and that they love what they do and that's, it comes out in their performances. That's something wonderful to see, performers do what they love to do, it's beautiful."

"We hope that it can be exported to China afterward because there, it is censored, you can't see this kind of show, that's all," Migliore added. "It's beautiful. It's beautiful."

Traditional Culture in Shen Yun Impresses Paris Audience
Della.sun
2019-01-18    0 views
From grand, historic buildings to humble street corners, Paris is a city picturesque to the last detail. Since the 17th century, it has been one of Europe's major centers of commerce, fashion, and the arts.

Audience members who watched Shen Yun Performing Arts on opening night Jan. 16, and said the elements they saw rang with the soul of China.

"So very surprised. I didn't know what to expect," said Laurent Giraudel, COO at Natixis Investment Managers. "Beautiful choreographies, very nice scenery with the video behind it. And synchronization of everyone that is absolutely wonderful. And beautiful colors and very well-crafted costumes."

"I saw angels. I felt the presence of the angels who were transmitting the culture," said Leo Carruthers, an emeritus professor of Paris-Sorbonne University. "That doesn't surprise me, because in many cultures, we find the idea that culture, language, and arts, come from heaven. And that's because it speaks to something that's inside of man. It's his spiritual part."

"The sets are very well done, we have the feeling that the characters come from heaven in fact," said Odile Neuviale, a marketing director of L'Oréal. "And we understand very well the link between all art and the divine. That's right. It feels like we were in another world, that it's going to be hard to get out of here. And I think we're going to keep this dream in our minds for a very, very long time, that's it."

"I am touched by this, a lot," Carruthers added. "I think they are right. It is certainly a very good thing to introduce the whole world to ancient China, traditional China, and what still exists of this culture that is a little hidden, that we do not know very well in the West. But it's great to know that it still exists."

"So it's quite an accomplishment, that's it, it's both harmonious and pleasant to see," said Michel Dupuis, president at Cojemial Conseils. "Full of color and full of joy, so it's very beautiful, and really it traces back, we can see the ancient history of the millenniums of Chinese culture."

Shen Yun Shows Connection to Divine, Says Prince Jean d’Orléans
Della.sun
2019-01-18    0 views
Prince Jean d’Orléans, Duke of Vendome, is the second son of Prince Henri, the Count of Paris and Duke of France, and Duchess Marie Therese of Württemberg. He is first in line to succeed the French Throne. He watched Shen Yun Performing Arts in Paris on Jan. 16, and said he was touched by the spirituality of the performance.

"I think it's very good, we need this today. We're too materialistic, so we need to escape a little. We need poetry and then we need this relationship, that's it, with the sky, with the divine, and that's it and everything we've seen there makes a bit of a connection between the two," said Prince Jean d’Orléans. "And I think it's important, man shouldn't lose sight of where he comes from, and here we are, if you're attached to someone who, you think they've had a creation, this is a divine being, I think it's important for us to remember it."

Since the 17th century, Paris has been one of Europe's major centers of finance, fashion, and the arts. However, during the Paris Commune uprising, buildings were reduced to ashes and traditional culture was nearly destroyed. This same system of oppression has been employed by the CCP in its political activities since it seized power in China.

According to its program book, Shen Yun’s mission is to revitalize China’s 5,000-year-old culture and history for today’s audiences.

"I was moved to see that today, Shen Yun can do such shows," Prince Jean d’Orléans added. "Because it is a period, in fact, we don't talk much about the different peoples, different ethnic groups and their cultures, and, I find that it is a little contrary to what we are used to seeing and hearing today. And here we are presented with a multitude of stories, a multitude of peoples, a multitude of cultures, ethnic groups, traditional costumes, poems, particular stories on different regions of China and I find it very, very interesting and it brings a lot I find."

"When you don't know what your past is, it's hard to know where you're going," said Prince Jean d’Orléans. "And I think that in a world that doesn't have a reference, tradition and culture are very important. And then when you have 5,000 years of culture, it's even stronger.

"Because we are too busy with everyday life, here are the things that are not beautiful, and then we escape into another universe and with color, with poetry and humor, at the very opposite of what we are experiencing in daily life," Prince Jean d’Orléans added.

Shen Yun 'Culture Refound'
Della.sun
2019-01-15    4 views

I thought the performers were outstanding.

I thought each one of them
was just as good as the other.

I thought the individual dances

I preferred some over others,
but generally they were all good.

The musicians were fabulous,
and I thought the singers were also good.
It's different than anything else.
The dancing and the choreography

is incredible. The costuming...
I think its ingenious

how they did the backdrops this time.
I've never seen anything like that.


It was just a great performance.
It was the best that New York City

could ever experience.
It was lively, it was spiritual.

It's what just raised the spirits
of all of the people here.
I think the whole thing was
so well put together you can't pull it apart.
From ancient folklore and legends, up to modern day stories based on real events, uplifting messages of divinity and hope were imparted and expressed to the audience through traditional Chinese dance.
Touching.
People are being persecuted for

saying the truth in what they believe,
and having to flee families and friends.

Since 1999 up to today, the communist regime in China has persecuted the spiritual practice of Falun Gong or Falun Dafa, for refusing to give up their beliefs and upholding the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion, and Forbearance.
That's what we all should be following.

It is a basic religion, it's a basic spirituality,
it's just a matter of goodness

and goodness should be in all of us.
You know it's a shame that
[not only] the Chinese people

but the world in general
has lost some of the culture from China

because it's being suppressed.
So I thought this show

introduces people to a culture
that needs to be refound.

What I learned is you've got to bring the children.
I plan to bring my six granddaughters back.
Yeah, my grandchildren.
They love the dancing

so that’s why I took them.
And the experience has been wonderful.

Shen Yun delivers Anticipation and Satisfaction

2019-01-14    0 views
Looking forward to the experience of Shen Yun and expressing satisfaction after the anticipation of the performance was a common theme among audience members in New York.

“We’ve been looking forward to it for quite some time and it hasn’t failed to really impress us,” Jim Colassano, Senior Vice President of the Clearing House said. “In terms of performance, the dancing, and the technology, [it was] really very, very fascinating.

“I’m always interested in history and I like the culture. The ethnicity and the dancing is beautiful,” he said. “But I think the stories are really fascinating and it’s interesting to me to hear the historical backgrounds in the different areas in China.

“For me, it really was to see pre-communist China,” Jim’s wife, Laura Colassano, said of Shen Yun Performing Arts. “Basically to see the richness, the spirituality, the dance, the culture. It just shows a very different side of China.”
“The song at the end was really beautiful,” Jim said. “The tenor, first of all his singing was excellent … but being able to scroll through the words and see the meaning behind the song was really very touching,” he said.

“Well I’m very spiritual so for me it touched my soul,” Laura added. “As an American, knowing China as communist China that it is today, to see the difference between history and now, and to see the spirituality that actually existed, and probably still exists in many places in China, is refreshing—very eye opening.”
Wholesome

Faith and spirituality were popular themes that were appreciated through the art-form.

“We wanted to come and see it, so we booked like two months ago, or three, when they first started the promoting,” Reine Emeish, Executive Director at Demouzy Contemporary Inc. said.

“So I couldn’t wait until today. It was like a great experience and I appreciate the presentation of a culture that I don’t know so much about.

“This was more a wholesome thing and I felt really empowered by the spirituality that’s in the performance, and there is deep metaphors over there, which I sensed and I felt, with the colors and all the symbolism there.
“Faith manifest itself in arts, so that is extremely meaningful. We all need that, you know … art as a form of faith. So this is really what I took from what I’ve seen today. The spirituality that you have to have faith in a greater being, a creator for every creation, that gives us purpose, that gives us something more in our life to look for, for a more divine purpose in life.

“I think that’s a very magnificent thing,” she said.

The performance struck a chord in the hearts of those who attended, earning deep respect and reverence.
After a Year’s Anticipation

Annette Contento and her husband AJ, both Optometrists, were overjoyed with the performance.

“]It’s] my birthday present. I wanted to come last year. We could get tickets so we’re very happy to be here this year,” Annette said. “It’s very inspirational … very touching. Especially when the gentleman was singing about heaven and it just strikes a chord.

“You’re like ‘Wow, that’s so true. We really have to stop and sit back, look around us and really appreciate everything.’
“We were learning so much, which is really important now in this world, especially today,” she said.

“It’s very very spiritual and the coordination of the dancers, the choreography was on point,” AJ said. “We’re very excited to be here and to enjoy all the magic that the show has to offer.”

Iceland’s Northern Lights- Beautiful Sight

2019-01-14    151 views
Spending a calm winter night under an Arctic sky lit up by the Northern Lights is an often-cited 'bucket-list' experience and among the reasons why more people are visiting northern Iceland.

The remote region at the edge of the Arctic Circle is one of the best places in the world to spot the colorful phenomenon.

The Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, occur when magnetic solar winds slam into the Earth's magnetic field, causing atoms in the upper atmosphere to glow.

With many tourists already out on the roads, police in Iceland are reminding visitors to put safety first and not to underestimate the challenging winter conditions as they search for the Northern Lights.

14. SOUNDBITE (English) Johannes Sigfusson, Akureyri Police Superintendent:
"We could say we have saying in Iceland, that the weather changes every five minutes. And this is something that is unusual for many of our foreign guests. The weather and the road conditions change accordingly. It can go from being a dry road to being an icy and slippery road in a matter of minutes."

Mayor Bill de Blasio, gave his State of the City speech at the Symphony Space Theatre on Jan. 10.

Chief Chaplain of the New York City Police Department Rabbi Alvin Mass opened by honoring New York City's achievements.
[SOT, RABBI ALVIN MASS, CHIEF CHAPLAIN, NYPD]
“We are blessed to be residents of a city where crime is at an all time low and educational opportunity is at an all time high.”

The mayor and the chief were on the same page.
[SOT, BILL DE BLASIO, NYC MAYOR]
“They’re heroes. Extraordinary people—they’re heroes, like police officer Syed Ali—a combat veteran.

Patrolling the subway last month—single handedly held back a group of 5 assailants. And, as if that wasn’t enough, when one of them fell on the subway tracks, officer Ali saved his life.”

During his speech, the mayor stopped to sign an executive order, creating a government office that can seize property from unlawful landlords.
[SOT, BILL DE BLASIO, NYC MAYOR]
“And we’ll get tough on the bad guys: when the city’s worst landlords cheat their tenants, we will take their buildings away from them.”

“My fellow New Yorkers, when a landlord tries to push out a tenant, by making their home unlivable, a team of inspectors, law enforcement agents will be on the ground in time to stop it.”
A detailed explanation of the new office was not given, nor an explanation on how cases between landlords and tenants will be investigated.

He did describe an unlawful landlord as someone who makes the tenant's home unlivable, and what qualifies as unlivable was not specified.

A severe dust storm hit a rural New South Wales town on Tuesday, turning the sky dark red and causing power outages for residents in the area.

Video shot from a family farm in the town of Barellan shows red dust blanketing the surroundings as trees jostle in the wind. "It got incredibly dark, it was as if it was 2 a.m. at night and someone had just thrown a blanket over the sun," Sally Lees, who filmed the video in the early afternoon, told Reuters.


More than 5,000 homes lost power in the area because of the storm, according to local news, though most had it restored by Tuesday night. Apart from Barellan, the towns of Temora and Ariah Park were also affected.

“I have the absolute right to declare a national emergency. I haven't done it yet. I may do it. If this doesn't work out probably I will do it. I would almost say definitely.”

:PO-36TH
“Either we're going to win or make a compromise. I'm okay to making a compromise. Compromise is in my vocabulary very strongly. So we're either going to have a win, make a compromise -- because I think a compromise is a win for everybody."


Trump also said that he may not be going to Switzerland for the World Economic Forum later this month if the government remains partially closed. And later this afternoon he announced in a tweet that he had decided not to attend.

Soundbite:PO-65TH
if the shutdown continues, I won't go. I had planned to go. It's been very successful when I went. We have a great story to tell. We have the best job numbers we've ever had in many ways. Certainly with African-Americans, with Hispanics, with Asian-Americans. And overall we have the best job numbers in at least 50 years. We have a lot of great things happening. The economy is incredible, we're negotiating and having tremendous success with China”

No prenup between Bezos and wife of 25 years- report

The world’s richest man, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos,
and his wife MacKenzie

are getting a divorce after 25 years of marriage.
They made the announcement public on Twitter.

According to Bloomberg’s billionaires index,
Bezos is reportedly worth $137 billion.

The couple did not have a prenuptial agreement.

As they will file their documents in Washington State,
a community property state.

Any wealth made during the marriage could be equally split.

That means MacKenzie would be entitled to half of the
$137 billion, making her the world’s richest woman.

That also means Bill Gates would once again
be the world’s richest man.

Jamie Lee Curtis slammed what she called
“blatant promotions” by Fiji at the Golden Globes.

The 60-year-old actress was not pleased to find
out that the “Fiji Water Girl” had photobombed her.

On Instagram, Curtis said the companies need to
ask permission before taking photos together.

“I said out loud that I didn’t want to be
doing advertising,” she wrote on Jan. 8.

Curtis even moved away from the “Fiji Water Girl,”
but later saw both of them in a photo online.

“We’re so glad everyone is talking about our
water!” wrote Fiji Water on Twitter on Jan. 6.

Mitt Richards has some understanding of Chinese culture. As a former emergency medicine physician, he would have patients and now still has students whose parents only speak Chinese, so he is fluent in the language.

He said, he was in tears when seeing the traditional Chinese culture of 5,000 years brought to life on stage.

the timing was perfect, the music...
it stimulated the hearing.

The costumes,
the colors brought out the visual

and then the athleticism,
the movements that the grace

of the performers brought it all together
for a phenomenal, phenomenal show.

It was very heartwarming for me.

Michigan family of 5 killed in wrong-way crash in Kentucky

A suspected drunken driver heading the wrong way on Interstate 75 in Kentucky struck a vehicle carrying five family members from Michigan early Sunday, killing all six people, authorities said.

The southbound pickup truck being driven in the northbound lanes struck the family's sport utility vehicle at 2:30 a.m. in Lexington. The SUV caught fire and all five occupants of that vehicle died, along with the pickup's driver, Lexington police said in a statement.

The family from Northville, Michigan, was returning from a vacation in Florida, the Fayette County coroner's office said.

A coroner's statement identified the family members as Issam Abbas, 42 and Rima Abbas, 38, along with their children, a boy Ali Abbas, 14; and girls Isabella Abbas, 13, and Giselle Abbas, 7.

The driver of the white pickup was identified as 41-year-old Joey Lee Bailey of Georgetown. The coroner's statement says authorities believe Bailey was driving under the influence and that toxicology tests were planned. The interstate was shut for hours as the accident investigation opened.

According to the Islamic Center of America of Dearborn, Michigan, funeral services for the family are set for Tuesday at the center.

Trump may declare national emergency over border wall

[U.S. President Donald Trump]
I may declare a national emergency, depending on what is going to happen over the next few days.

President Donald Trump said on Jan. 6 he is considering whether to declare a national emergency in order to obtain funding for the U.S-Mexico border wall.

Vice President Mike Pence had planned to meet with congressional leaders on the afternoon of Jan. 6.

PO-15SU
[U.S. President Donald Trump]
I don’t expect anything to happen at that meeting, nor does the vice president, but I think we’re going to have some very serious talks come Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday.”

Democrats have refused to give in to Trump’s requested amount, committing only to their original offer of $1.3 billion for border security purposes that does not include any money for the border wall.

A national emergency declaration could bypass congressional approval as the shutdown—now in its 16th day—forges ahead.

Kanye West's First Twitter is about Trump

2019-01-03    51 views
Kanye West sent out a series of new year’s tweets, some of which praised President Trump.
West also pledged to start wearing his MAGA hat again during performances.

West hasn’t mentioned Trump since he closed his previous Twitter account. But on New Year’s Day he renewed his support for Trump, and also tweeted “2024,” the year West previously said that he would run for president in.

The hat tweet is significant, since West was pressured in the past by his entertainment industry peers to take it off, but he refused and remained steadfast in his support for Trump.
