Medical records search warrant carried out in Prince case
Yahoo News - 10 months
(Reuters) - A search warrant affidavit obtained by the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday revealed that a doctor who saw the late pop star Prince twice just weeks before his death and was at the musician's home when Prince's body was found had prescribed him medication. The document said Dr. Michael Todd Schulenberg was at the star's Paisley Park Studios compound in suburban Minneapolis to drop off test results when Prince's body was found in an elevator on April 21. The affidavit said Schulenberg had also prescribed Prince medication, but did not specify what those medications were or whether the prescription had been filled.

All Hail The Uber Man! How Sharp-Elbowed Salesman Travis Kalanick Became Silicon Valley's Newest Star
Business Insider - about 3 years
Shafqat Islam’s phone was ringing. He rubbed his eyes and looked at the number on the screen. It said unknown, but he took the call anyway. "Hi, this is Travis," a voice said. "I know Lukas Biewald, and he said you were the only guy he knew in Switzerland." Islam, part of the tech team at Merrill Lynch Bank Suisse, sat up and wracked his brain. Biewald? He had met the man once or twice, but he certainly didn't know this Travis character. "Let's go out!" prodded the restless out-of-towner. Islam resisted. It was getting late and he was tired. He wasn't in the mood to give his night to a stranger. "Come on, I'm only in town one night!" Travis persisted. "You gotta show me Geneva!" Islam finally gave in. He hopped in his second-hand BMW, picked up Travis and took him to a favorite bar, where Islam learned a bit more about the mystery man. A tech founder named Travis Kalanick, he’d sold a startup for millions to Akamai. He was now an investor in a couple of companies, incl ...

A Holiday Haven for the Shopping-Averse: Park Avenue Garage
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Apparently I am an odd bird -- at least that's how I feel every time I tell my friends I hate shopping. Note that I didn't say I hate new things; I just hate the process of shopping. I used to like to shop, but over the years I've become frustrated by the crazy crowds, the tiresome searching through a sea of products and, in many (too many) stores, crappy customer service. Add the holiday crush and I want to stick a fork in my eye. As much as I can, I shop online. So if I am going to venture into the fray, I make sure to choose my destinations carefully. With that in mind, one store at the top of my holiday shopping list is Park Avenue Garage (PAG). Nestled in midtown Manhattan, this luxury pop-up store will hold court on November 20-23 (11am-6pm) in the former West 56th Street townhouse shared by Elizabeth Taylor and Michael Todd -- sweeping staircases and sky-high ceilings included. Gently used and new fashion, beauty and home merchandise will take over four floors and will include ...

Susan Dormady Eisenberg: Review: Show Boat Is Sensational at Washington National Opera
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Washington National Opera's Show Boat will depart the Kennedy Center Opera House soon, the end to an exceptionally fine mainstage season, but if you can scare up a ticket you shouldn't miss this quintessential American musical, lovingly and movingly staged by Francesca Zambello, WNO's artistic director. Zambello has an impressive track record with musicals and a fondess for the art form. In an interview published on HuffPost two years ago, she told me that she'll present a fully staged musical from Broadway's golden era each summer at Glimmerglass Festival where she became artistic and general director in 2010, and this July she'll produce Camelot with Andriana Chuchman as Guenevere. Why is this is relevant? Because Chuchman is the stunning young Canadian soprano who's now playing Magnolia Hawks in Show Boat. Zambello has found a gem in Chuchman, whose silvery soprano and ebullient stage presence are the glue in this big, glittering Show Boat which needs a compelling le ...

Edward Goldman: The Dangerous and Seductive Beauty of Descanso Gardens
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
With Passover, Easter and a new Pope competing in recent days for our attention, I was looking for a place to thank all our gods and muses -- whoever they are and wherever they are hiding -- for this beautiful world that we inhabit. The obvious choices would be to enjoy the sunset here in Santa Monica, or stroll through the museum gardens at the Getty or the Norton Simon. But I've been there and done that countless times, and now, I was looking for something new. And voilà! I thought of the Descanso Gardens, one of the botanical treasures Southern California is famous for. However, this magical site in the San Gabriel Mountains remains surprisingly under the radar. I have been to Descanso Gardens several times but my last visit was at least ten years ago. And so, I drove to the town of La Cañada Flintridge over the weekend and found its sprawling grounds, all 150-acres of them, in full bloom. Whatever your floral fantasy, it was there; apple and cherry trees were expl ...

Lew Whittington: Luminous Taylor
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Elizabeth Taylor: A Shining Legacy on Film Cindy de la Hoz Running Press $30 Hands down, the affordable coffee-table book of the year is Cindy de La Hoz' photo-bio of Elizabeth Taylor. Not only does the book have hundreds of private photos of a ravishing Taylor, but the author writes a non-voyeureque, balanced assessment of her films. The author doesn't fawn in her capsule assessments of Taylor and she includes, for instance, the bad notices. The photographs are gorgeous and captivating. La Hoz and the editors have been expert in the print transfers and the book's layout. Taylor was one of the last standing stars from the Golden days of the Hollywood studio system, but, as these candid photos remind, she always bucked that system almost from the start, whether it was choosing her designers, co-stars or handlers. Who can resist a story like a 13 year-old Taylor, who didn't like the tone Louis B. Mayer, the head of MGM, took with Taylor's mother on the set of Nati ...

Lawyers say Clarke's justice bill smacks of repressive and undemocratic regimes
Guardian (UK) - over 4 years
Law Society and Bar Council say changes will significantly damage the UK's international reputation for 'fair justice' Secret trials and withholding evidence are reminiscent of "repressive regimes and undemocratic societies", the legal profession warns in a letter opposing the government's justice and security bill. Ken Clarke's plans will erode core principles of justice and "fatally undermine the courtroom as an independent and objective forum", according to the organisations representing solicitors and barristers. The UK's international reputation for "fair justice" will be significantly damaged, they say. A senior Liberal Democrat source has signalled that the party, whose annual conference rejected the bill, expects changes to the controversial proposals during their passage through parliament to "improve the legislation". The intervention by the Law Society and the Bar Council comes before next week's pivotal vote on the regulations, which extend secret hearings, known as clo ...

Janet Tavakoli: Facebook Stock: New Strong Sell Signals
The Huffington Post - over 4 years
When insiders sell stock, that's usually a strong sell signal for everyone else. As I mentioned in a previous post, many of Facebook's early investors cashed out rather than hang onto their shares, and the stock price plummeted from the IPO price of $38 (at one point the share price had risen to $45) to close at $21.94 on Friday. In after-hours trading, Facebook (ticker symbol FB) traded down another 1.33 percent to $21.65. Trading was closed Monday and Tuesday due to Hurricane Sandy, but trading reopens today. After trading hours on Friday, October 26, several senior Facebook officers made required filings of 4s forms to the SEC reporting that on October 25, they converted their newly unlocked restricted shares from Class B common shares, which get ten votes, to Class A common shares which only get one vote. Unlike the Class B shares, the Class A shares can be traded in the public market. In fact, the only reason to give up the ten times voting rich Class B shares fo ...

Eric Church’s Band to Host Benefit Golf Tournament for MusiCares
GAC - Great American Country - over 4 years
Eric Church photo by John Peets, courtesy of Essential Broadcast Media. Eric Church’s band members are putting golf clubs in their hands for a good cause. The band will host the inaugural ‘Put A Club In My Hand’ charity golf tournament at Gaylord Springs Golf Links in Nashville on September 25 to benefit the GRAMMY’s MusiCares program. Eric’s bass player, Lee Hendricks, came up with the event alongside his band mates Jeff Cease, Jeff Hyde, Driver Williams and Craig Wright as well as Michael Todd Stembridge, Eric’s set carpenter. They are hosting the event to give back to MusiCares, which provides a safety net for music professionals in times of need. “I lost a lot of equipment in the Nashville flood, but MusicCares came in immediately and helped me recover from those financial losses,” Lee said. “We, as a band, would love to see Music City step up and repay them for helping to alleviate so much hardship within our community in such a dire time of need, and also acknowledge what ...

MoJ - Michael Todd QC on UK legal services
De Havilland - about 5 years
<a class="fplink fp-604379" href="/michael+todd+musician">Michael Todd</a> QC, the Chairman of the Bar Council, explains why we have a legal services sector to be proud of and why he believes we can all invest in its future. It was whilst I was attending the International Bar Association's (IBA's) Annual Conference late last year, in Dubai, that I witnessed with considerable satisfaction and pride, the esteem in which our justice system, judges and practitioners are held by not only the rest of the common law world, but also those who practise within civil systems of justice. What struck me, in particular, was the desire and enthusiasm of others to learn of what was happening in the UK; of the latest developments in the common law, of ethical and professional challenges, of the influence of the Legal Services Act 2007 on practice, and of the manner in which we deliver our legal services. It was fortuitous, therefo ...

    In 2012 Michael Todd was diagnosed with cancer.
    More Details Hide Details Todd's preferred bass is a Spector Euro model, which was used heavily in the band's music videos and live performances. In the past, he has utilized ESP basses (Delirium Trigger video), Spector basses (particularly the Rebop model), Fender Jazz Bass (Live At The Starland Ballroom); since the Vans' 2007 Warped Tour, Mic has been seen using Fender Jazz and Precision Basses exclusively. Mic Todd plays bass using the traditional finger approach, fingering the strings with the index and middle finger of his right hand, and more recently with a three-finger approach. He has been known to also use the slapping technique. He often arpeggiated the chords played by guitarists Claudio Sanchez and Travis Stever and makes heavy use of fifths and octaves of the root of the chord being played. During live shows with Coheed and Cambria, Todd provided the screaming vocals when playing older songs such as "Devil in Jersey City", "Everything Evil", "Delirium Trigger", "Hearshot Kid Disaster", "Junesong Provision", "In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3", "Three Evils (Embodied in Love and Shadow)", and "The Camper Velourium III: Al The Killer", as well as new songs such as "The End Complete III: The End Complete", "This Shattered Symphony" and "When Skeletons Live". During live performances he also handled most of the backing vocals and harmonies – notably on "The Suffering", using a falsetto voice (as the original lines were sung by a female friend of the band).
    On June 12, 2012, Todd pleaded guilty to his charges in superior court and was ordered to serve one year of home confinement and three years of probation.
