Daft Punk Is Reportedly In The Studio Working On New Music

first_imgWe haven’t heard much from Daft Punk since the release of their multiple Grammy-winning album Random Access Memories in 2013. But it looks like that may be changing soon. In an interview with Billboard, Republic Records executive Wendy Goldstein was asked a question about what artists she’s always wanted to work with, and answered–rather nonchalantly–with some exciting news: “Actually, we [Goldstein and fellow hitmaker Ron Perry] have a session coming up in two days with The Weeknd and Daft Punk. I’m a massive Daft Punk fan, and this is the first time that I’ve actually been involved with an artist who’s going to go and work with them.”While this is the only information we have about the reported session, this is definitely exciting news for fans of both The Weeknd and Daft Punk.

U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command Hosts Planners for Continuing Promise 2015

first_imgThe mission has an enhanced focus. Building on relationships created in previous years, participants will consider each visit a subject-matter expert exchange, working together to increase the capacities of countries and communities to provide for themselves. By Dialogo December 11, 2014 Continuing Promise, a U.S. Southern Command training mission introduced in 2007, focuses on providing medical, engineering and veterinary humanitarian assistance activities in select countries to strengthen partnerships and improve cooperation on many levels among partner nations, interagency organizations and nongovernmental organizations. This year’s Continuing Promise mission will include hospital ship USNS Comfort (T-AH 20), a military sealift command ship, for the fourth year. As in previous years, hundreds of surgeries will be performed aboard Comfort, and thousands of patients will be treated ashore. The multinational members of the planning staff worked with information gathered through pre-deployment site surveys in which U.S. and partner nation planners relied on local professionals to describe the needs of their communities to develop the specific plans for each mission stop. Participants will share best practices with the host nation partners, and will work with local doctors, nurses and dentists when providing care and with host nation engineers and specialists during subject-matter expert exchanges and activities.

Excellent piece of news! Do you have the program or the travel route? I have information on the countries it will travel to, but not the route. Thank you very much I would have liked them to come back to Ecuador. We have so many poor people who need them but because of the government they won’t be coming back The mission has an enhanced focus.
