Duke and Duchess of Cambridge Expecting Third Child

ROYAL BABY: Kensington Palace has confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expecting their third child.
The expectant child will be sibling to Prince George, who turned four in July, and Charlotte, who celebrated her second birthday in May, and the news comes as the Duke and Duchess are preparing to send Prince George to school for the first time.
As with previous pregnancies, the duchess is suffering from severe morning sickness and as a result had to cancel engagements planned for today.

This will be the Queen’s sixth great-grandchild and the fifth Royal family member in line to the throne, following Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
During the earlier stages of her pregnancy, the Duchess attended

Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge Launch Mental Health Film Series

This is the kind of royal treatment mental health deserves.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are yet again lending their voice to those living with mental illness, this time with a 10-part film series through their mental health campaign Heads Together.

The initiative, which is called #OKToSay, features videos on the importance of speaking up for mental health. The goal is to encourage more people to start discussions around emotional well-being. Prince Harry is also participating in the project.

Attitudes to mental health are at a tipping point,” the royals said in a statement. “We hope these films show people how simple conversations can change the direction of an entire life. Please share them with your friends and families and join us in a national conversation on mental health in the weeks ahead.”

Each video showcases people with mental health issues as they talk about how acknowledging their condition helped them learn to accept and manage it. They also highlight stories about the person’s first time talking about mental health with a loved one. The conversations explore the importance of not staying silent when it comes mental illness.

The trio launched the new videos on Thursday right before World Health Day, which this year aims to focus on depression and the treatment gap for the disorder. Recent data from the World Health Organization found that depression rates have climbed 18 percent in the last decade. More than 300 million people globally experience the mental health condition, yet nearly half of them don’t get treatment.

Previous research suggests people may avoid seeking help due fear of shame from their peers. Public advocacy like William, Kate and Harry’s can help change that, according to experts.

Head on over to the Heads Together campaign’s website to watch the #OKToSay videos and learn more about the project.

“Lisa Adams: The Difference Between Human Nature And The Human Spirit,” Duke Art Gallery, Azusa Pacific University

Photos courtesy of Lisa Adams and CB1 Gallery.

Everything’s here. A modern art lexicon. Figuration. Audubon birds, the texture of tree trunks, the cotton candy wispiness of cumulus clouds. Things hover in an atmospheric space. Abstraction. Some rectangles are diaphanous. Some are opaque. They occlude land- and cityscapes like geometric smudges on a window. Irregular negative spaces blaze with blues, reds, and greens. They flatten the space and emphasize the picture plane. Gravity-compelled paint blobs whose tendrils winnow down the surface. And both. A flower that looks like a Rothko circle. An eclipsed sun that doubles as a Malevich Suprematist sphere. Arrangements of flowers and clouds that look like Fourth of July fireworks.

2014-09-10-LISAADAMSDrowningOutAllBirdsong_edited1.jpg
Drowning Out All Birdsong

A gamut of emotions. They’re joyous. Titles that allude to birdsong, epiphanies, and paradise. Subject matter that features birds that eat and drink. Flowers that reach for the sun, that drape freeway signage. Sinuous vines that cascade like a waterfall. And they’re melancholy. Smog that smothers trees. A pink cross that negates flowers that emerge from a decapitated tree. The suggestion of freeway noise that drowns out birdsong. Individually and from piece to piece, subjects decompose, they regenerate.

2014-09-10-LISAADAMSPrivilegeEntailsResponsibility.jpg
Privilege Entails Responsibility

The human condition. Sisyphus? He’s joyless, one side of the existential coin. Adams’ work combines three things. The persistence of Sisyphus. The tranquility of a Buddhist monk. And the unacknowledged rainbow exuberance of a flower vendor. It documents a world that generates and entropies, regenerates and re-entropies. Any one point on the continuum is a worldview, a zeitgeist. They’re but the swing of a pendulum. Adams’ work subsumes them all, Edens, dystopias, and everything in between. It’s pre- and postlapsarian. Those birds that seem so innocent? They aren’t. That sky that seems so blue? It isn’t. The flora that suggests regeneration? It can’t. They’re all better for the experience. It’s a world beset by lassitude, fecklessness, and carelessness. The one thing you don’t see in her work is people. That’s because her work is about the difference between human nature and the human spirit. We are the cause and the effect.

2014-09-10-LISAADAMSSecondsToGo.jpg
Seconds To Go

Everything’s here. There’s a unity, taut and prescribed. Though the scenarios aren’t utopian, the colors are bright and hopeful. The compositions are stable. They suggest cycles, constant states of affairs. It’s an aesthetic that’s not so much inchoate as un-choate. Beauty is a perpetual state of blossoming.

2014-09-10-LISAADAMSParadiseNotwithstanding.jpg
Paradise Notwithstanding

These are myths, personal, subjective myths, a breviary, a daybook. They sigh with nostalgia and resignation, common sense and poetic rapture. They’re didactic the way a stained glass window is didactic.

2014-09-10-LISAADAMS_AndTheWorldShallRemainSilent.jpg
And The World Shall Remain Silent

Call them Adams’ Mythology. Each picture, all seven of them, tells a story. It’s the same story, a Joseph Campbell one. It’s not a modern (or postmodern) tale. It’s a timeless one. As Campbell writes, “we are concerned … with problems of symbolism, not of historicity.” It involves a hero, scratch that, a heroine. She leaves home (Separation), endures trials (Initiation), and matures from the trek. It’s the voyage back, the sharing, (Return) that interests us. Her sharing of the wisdom acquired, the lessons learned.

2014-09-10-LISAADAMS_TheMireofEpiphany.jpg
The Mire of Epiphany

This mythology doesn’t just provide emotional ballast. It heralds, time after time, a vivid renewal of life. It’s not about alienation but forgiveness. It’s about the way a personal myth can tap into universal truths of perpetual renewals. She’s managed to step out of the labyrinth of style and contemporary concern. This provides her with a bird’s eye view of the world as it can become, the way it has been, and the way it will continue to alternate between becoming and having-been.

2014-09-10-LISAADAMSSandySaysSo.jpg
Sandy Says So

It’s not monumental work but it is heroic. It holds fast to the present while it focuses on the future in the face of grin-and-bear-it doldrums. It shows the episodic nature of the world, a given, behind which lies an unchanging essence of I can. And so, Campbell again: “every one of us shares the supreme ordeal – carries the cross of the redeemer – not in the bright moments of his tribe’s great victories, but in the silences of his personal despair.”

The exhibition runs until September 26. The Gallery is located at Azusa Pacific University, 701 E. Foothill Boulevard, Azusa, CA 91702. For more information, call (626) 387-5726 or write art design@apu.edu.

Original ‘Born To Run’ Lyrics On Display At Duke

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Bruce Springsteen wasn’t thinking about Wendy when he wrote a first draft of his 1975 classic “Born to Run.” Instead, he’s got a gold Chevy 6 on his mind, according to the original lyrics, which make their public debut this week at Duke University.

The 30 lines of lyrics, written in pen on a piece of 8.5.-by-11-inch lined paper, were purchased last December at a Sotheby’s auction by Floyd Bradley, a California man whose daughter graduates this weekend from Duke, as does Springsteen’s daughter. Bradley, 62, a retired computer software marketer who spent much of his life in London, paid $ 160,000 plus a commission, bringing the total to $ 197,000. “It was a lot. I was embarrassed to tell my children,” he said. “But they were very supportive after I told them.”

He bought them as an investment, he said. “It’s a piece of Americana, I think.”

The original lyrics, written in 1974, in Long Branch, New Jersey, bear little resemblance to the anthem that Springsteen typically plays each concert with the house lights on and the audience on its feet. But that familiar chorus of “tramps like us/baby we were born to run” is there as is a part that ended up much like the final version: “this town’ll rip the bones from your back/it’s A suicide trap/your dead unless you get out while your young.”

The “everlasting kiss” is there: “I was headin for the place where wild Angels die in An everlasting (or) neverending kiss.”

But there’s no mention of dying with Wendy during that kiss or of guarding Wendy’s dreams and visions. Instead, Springsteen “looked out cross my hood + saw the highway buckle neath the wheels of A gold Chevy 6.” The car got a second mention a few lines down: “Baby out there heroes are crushed to death behind the wheels of a gold Chevy 6.”

In the margins, he’s written words such as “wild angels,” ”Stroll on!” and “the rebels.”

“Something as iconic as this song, it’s going to be important to American history,” said Duke University exhibit librarian Meg Brown, who found 25 books about Springsteen, mostly academic, in Duke’s collections. “It came in at a time with a lot of change in American history and it made a significant difference.”

Bradley’s life has intersected with Springsteen’s at times. His mother, Carol, lived beside Springsteen’s mother, Adele. When the family sold Carol Bradley’s house, Springsteen bought it for his mother-in-law. And Bradley met Springsteen once when he took something to Adele Springsteen and she invited him to meet her son, who was visiting.

Carol Bradley also wrote and sang a song titled “The Big 50” for Springsteen’s 50th birthday, and Springsteen played the recording of Carol Bradley singing the song at a concert in Philadelphia in 1999.

Bradley’s daughter, Melissa, graduates this weekend from Duke as does Jessica Springsteen. He hasn’t reached out to Springsteen to set up a meeting, however. “But I might bump into him …” Bradley said.

The lyrics will be displayed starting Thursday and continuing through Saturday at the Perkins Library. Then the sheet will move to the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Perkins from May 12 to June 27.

Duke Frat Bros From The 80s Play ‘Beer Frisbee’ And Generally Act Ridiculous (VIDEO)

The brothers of Sigma Chi at Duke University got together one afternoon in 1986, played a game of “beer Frisbee” and documented it all on what we can only assume was a fairly large videocamera.

“There’s something honest, something pure” about the game, one of the bros says.

After watching the video, we still have no idea how the game is played, just that “you don’t have to be athletic, you only have to be [an] alcoholic,” according to one of the guys.

The brothers did offer some life advice, like “All ya gotta see is some dude hit by a car or some dude buyin’ it in the teeth to catch a Fris, and that’ll put it in perspective.”

Whatever you say, bro.
