Palmbomen is the stage name of Amsterdam, Netherlands based musician Kai Hugo (born 1988). Palmbomen has released on NON Records, a label he helped found with his friend Bear Damen, and French label Kitsuné Maison. Palmbomen has also scored the soundtrack for the Playstation Vita game Metrico as well as been featured on the soundtrack for Grand Theft Auto V. Since 2015, Hugo has been releasing house music under the moniker Palmbomen II.

Hugo’s first project for the label NON Records was entitled Ganz Nackische. After a few songs, he decided to ditch the hard sound of this project for a more tropical one. Only being asked to fill in for a cancelled artist was the name Palmbomen chosen, which is the Dutch word for palm trees. The name was chosen “because of the absolute absence of palm trees in Holland, they represent somewhat of a small detail of utopia” notes Hugo.

Kai recorded material using mostly antiquated equipment to capture a vintage sound for what would be his debut EP. Moon Children was released on NON Records in July 2010, with a release party Amsterdam nightclub Trouw. The live performance featured a custom built live light set which he programmed himself. After receiving positive reviews from Vice Magazine, The Examiner, and 3VOOR12, French music and fashion label Kitsuné Maison included the title track on their 10th Kitsune Maison Compilation, released in November 2010.

Following extensive touring of the live light set, Palmbomen relocated to Berlin to record a full-length record. Hugo further developed his analogue sound to incorporate more elements of ambient house, psychedelia, and Italo disco. The resulting album „Night Flight Europa“ was released by NON Records in January 2013, and received positive reviews from The Fader, Red Bull Music Academy, and Decoder Magazine. The record also caught the attention of Belgian electronic music duo Soulwax, who invited Palmbomen to open for them at their annual Soulwaxmas celebration in 2012.

Following an extensive tour in support of the new record, Palmbomen again was approached by Soulwax, but this time in regard to their involvement with the soundtrack for the Rockstar Games series Grand Theft Auto. Eventually it was revealed Soulwax had remixed Palmbomen’s track ‚Stock‘ for their station Soulwax Radio in Grand Theft Auto V. This sparked a new connection to the video game industry, with Sony commissioning Palmbomen to create the soundtrack for their PlayStation Vita game Metrico, released in August 2014. Hugo left Berlin for Los Angeles in 2014, where he continues to score music for video games, movies, and records as Palmbomen.

Since 2015, Hugo has been releasing under the moniker Palmbomen II. Hugo birthed Palmbomen II while spending a summer watching X-Files in his mother’s attic in the Netherlands, and Palmbomen II marks a significant departure from his previous sound on Night Flight Europa. Explaining his moniker change, Hugo tells Dummy Mag: „I wanted to split Palmbomen in two. It’s a practical thing. In Palmbomen, I play with a band, and playing live, you have to cheat. I remember trying to emulate the sound with a band playing – we had a gigantic setup, but it was impossible. I thought that if I’m gonna play with a band, I wanna do it with a band – no electronics, no click track, no bullshit. On the other hand, if I want to do electronics, I just want a bunch of drum machines and synthesizers to play around with.“

He debuted his new moniker with the full-length self-titled album „Palmbomen II“, an X-Files inspired Outsider House album in which each track is named after a minor X-Files character. The album was released via Beats In Space on March 3, 2015 and was well received by critics, with a 7.3 out of 10 from Pitchfork and 3.7 out of 5 from Resident Advisor. Approximately a year later, Palmbomen II released „Center Parcs EP“, a dreamy IDM album cowritten with fellow Dutch producer Betonkust. Palmbomen II and Betonkust wrote the album over the course of a rainy weekend at the virtually abandoned holiday resort „Center Parcs De Eemhof“, drawing inspiration from the shiny façade and inauthenticity of „swimming paradises“. Center Parcs EP was released via the Vancouver-based label 1080p on February 26, 2016.

Kenneth Hare

Fredrick Kenneth Hare, CC OOnt FRSC (February 5, 1919 – September 3, 2002) was a Canadian climatologist and academic, who researched atmospheric carbon dioxide, climate change, drought, and arid zone climates and was a strong advocate for preserving the natural environment.

Born in Wiltshire, England, he received a Bachelor of Science in 1939 from King’s College London. During World War II, he was a meteorologist with the UK Air Ministry, and joined McGill University as an assistant professor after the war. In 1950, he received a PhD in Geography from the Université de Montréal.

Hare was Dean of Arts and Science at McGill starting 1962 before returning to England in 1964. He was Master of Birkbeck College from 1966 to 1968, during which he served as president of the Royal Meteorological Society.

In 1968, he accepted the position as fifth president of the University of British Columbia, which he served until he resigned on January 31, 1969. He joined the University of Toronto (U of T) becoming a Professor of geography and physics in 1974. From 1974 to 1979 he was director of the Institute for Environmental Studies at the U of T. From 1979 until 1986 he was Provost of Trinity College. From 1988 to 1995 he was the sixth Chancellor of Trent University.

Funny Lady

Funny Lady is a 1975 American musical film starring Barbra Streisand, James Caan, Omar Sharif, Roddy McDowall, and Ben Vereen.

A sequel to the 1968 film Funny Girl, it is a highly fictionalized account of the later life and career of comedian Fanny Brice and her marriage to songwriter and impresario Billy Rose. The screenplay was by Jay Presson Allen and Arnold Schulman, based on a story by Schulman. The primary score was by John Kander and Fred Ebb. It was directed by Herbert Ross.

Although she was contractually bound to make one more film for producer Ray Stark (Fanny Brice’s one-time son-in-law), Streisand balked at doing the project. She told Stark „that it would take litigation to make her do a sequel.“ However, Streisand liked the script, which showed Fanny to be „…tougher, more acerbic, more mature…“, and she agreed to do the film.

The first actor to read for the role of Billy Rose was Robert Blake. Other actors were mentioned, including Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, but ultimately James Caan was chosen. Streisand explained: „It comes down to whom the audience wants me to kiss. Robert Blake, no. James Caan, yes.“

Stark, unhappy with the scenes shot by the original cinematographer, lured an ailing James Wong Howe out of retirement to complete the film. It proved to be his final project, and it earned him an Academy Award nomination.

Studio heads forced Ross to trim the film to a manageable 136 minutes prior to its release. Much of Vereen’s performance ended up on the cutting room floor, together with a recreation of Brice’s Baby Snooks radio show and dramatic scenes involving her and her daughter.

In addition to Howe, Oscar nominations went to Ray Aghayan and Bob Mackie for Best Costume Design, John Kander and Fred Ebb for Best Original Song („How Lucky Can You Get?“), Peter Matz for Best Scoring of an Original Song Score and/or Adaptation, and the sound crew. Streisand, Caan, and Vereen all received Golden Globe Award nominations, as did Kander and Ebb and the film itself, but it was shut out of any wins in both competitions.

The film grossed $40,055,897 at the U.S. box office, making it the seventh highest grossing picture of 1975.

James Caan thought there were „too many cooks messing around“ the film, although he liked his performance.

The film was nominated for five Academy Awards:

It was also nominated for six Golden Globe awards including Best Picture Musical/Comedy, Best Actress for Barbra Streisand, and Best Actor for James Caan.

The soundtrack peaked on the Billboard Album Chart at number 6 and was certified gold.

Catherine Sedley, Countess of Dorchester

Lady Catherine Sedley, Countess of Dorchester (* 1657; † 26. Oktober 1717 in Bath) war die Mätresse von König Jakob II. von England.

Catherine war die einzige Tochter des englischen Staatsmanns und Dramatikers Sir Charles Sedley (1639–1701) und seiner ersten Frau Lady Catherine Savage (1640–1680). Lady Catherine kam als Hofdame an den englischen Hof und wurde um 1673 die Mätresse des Herzogs von York und späteren Königs Jakob II. von England (1633–1701). Aus der Verbindung gingen drei Kinder hervor:

Da der Herzog von York aus seiner ersten Ehe mit Anne Hyde (1637–1671) nur zwei Töchter, Maria (1662–1694) und Anne (1665–1714), hatte und keinen legitimen Erben − ging er 1673 eine erneute Ehe mit der katholischen Prinzessin Maria Beatrice d’Este (1658–1718) ein.

Der jahrelange schlechte Gesundheitszustand der Herzogin von York hielt auch nach der Krönung (1685) an und wurde in Verbindung mit der noch immer aktuellen Liebesbeziehung des Königs zu Lady Catherine Sedley gebracht. Während der gesamten bisherigen Ehejahre war Maria mit der Untreue ihres Gatten konfrontiert worden. In dieser Situation machte sich nun der große Einfluss des Jesuiten Edward Petre auf Jakob II. positiv bemerkbar. Er schaffte es, dass der König sich einer strengeren Moral unterwarf und offiziell von seiner Mätresse trennte. Maria und Petre gelang es schließlich auch, dass Catherine Sedley zumindest vorübergehend nach Irland ging. 1686 kehrte sie von dort jedoch zurück und Jakob II. machte sie zur Entschädigung für die langjährigen Dienste auf Lebenszeit zur Countess of Dorchester. Im gleichen Zug versprach er Maria, Catherine Sedley nie wiederzusehen. Dieses Versprechen hinderte ihn allerdings nicht daran, seine beiden illegitimen Söhne, die er mit seiner ersten Geliebten, Arabella Churchill (1648–1730), hatte, aus Frankreich nach England zu holen.

Im Jahre 1696 heiratete Lady Catherine Sedley den Gouverneur von Gibraltar, Sir David Colyear, 1. Earl of Portmore († 1730). Aus der gemeinsamen Ehe gingen zwei Söhne, David (1698–1728) und Charles (1700–1785), hervor. Sie starb am 26. Oktober 1717 in Bath an einem Herzinfarkt.

Meine Schönheit ist es nicht, denn er muss ja sehen, dass ich keine besitze. Und mein Verstand ist es nicht, denn er hat nicht genug, um den meinen zu erkennen.

Franca Kastein

Franca Kastein Ferreira Alves (* 1969 in Mosambik; † 13. August 2000 in Berlin) war eine deutsche Schauspielerin.

Die in Mosambik geborene Franca Kastein wuchs in Bremen auf. Sie studierte Schauspiel an der Otto-Falckenberg-Schule in München. Anschließend spielte sie ab 1993 Theater in Freiburg im Breisgau. 1996 wurde sie von dem Theaterregisseur Günter Gerstner ans Maxim-Gorki-Theater geholt, um dort die Hauptrolle der Luise in Friedrich Schillers Theaterstück Kabale und Liebe zu spielen. Nach dem großen Erfolg spielte sie erneut eine Hauptrolle. Dieses Mal die Marie in dem von Johann Wolfgang Goethe geschriebenen Theaterstück Clavigo. Anschließend beendete sie ihr Theaterengagement und versuchte, beim Film Fuß zu fassen. Sie spielte in Urs Odermatts 1998 ausgestrahlten Tatort: Ein Hauch von Hollywood noch eine kleine Nebenrolle als Zimmermädchen und wurde bereits in ihrem nächsten Filmengagement von Volker Schlöndorff für die Hauptrolle in dessen Drama Die Stille nach dem Schuss besetzt.

Am 13. August 2000 verstarb Kastein im Alter von 31 Jahren durch Suizid. Sie sprang aus dem vierten Stock eines Gebäudes im zweiten Hinterhof des Haus Schwarzenberg in der Rosenthaler Straße in Berlin-Mitte in die Tiefe und erlag ihren Verletzungen.

Matthew 4:4

Matthew 4:4 is the fourth verse of the fourth chapter of the Gospel of Matthew in the New Testament. Jesus, who has been fasting in the desert, has just been encouraged by Satan to make bread from stones to relieve his hunger, in this verse he rejects this idea.

In the King James Version of the Bible the text reads:

The World English Bible translates the passage as:

For a collection of other versions see

Jesus rebuts Satan’s advances by quoting scripture. The verse in question is from Deuteronomy 8:3. In its original context the verse is describing how while wandering through the wilderness in Exodus the Israelites lacked food. Despite God’s promises they complained and worried about their hunger, but in the end God provided manna to feed them all. This same reply is also quoted in Luke 4:4, though in Luke it is somewhat abbreviated not containing „but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.“ The quote uses the exact wording of the Septuagint, but Hill notes that it is not an exact translation of the original Hebrew which has „everything“ rather than „every word.“ Gundry feels the author of Matthew added this section to emphasize Jesus‘ obedience to God. Jones states that by replying with nothing but quotes from scripture Jesus illustrates his „perfect detachment from everything except God’s will.“

Jesus rejects Satan’s idea, and uses nothing but a word of scripture as his argument. France notes that God’s word would not literally make up for not having any food. Instead it is a question of priority. If God instructed Jesus to fast in the desert, then it is that word that must be followed and it takes priority over any feelings such as hunger.

There are a number of explanations for why Satan attempted to have Jesus turn stones into bread and why it was important that Jesus refuse. The act of using God’s powers to create bread is not in itself wrong, as demonstrated in Matthew 14 and 15 where Jesus actually does perform this miracle. In the Middle Ages it became common to argue that Satan was simply tempting Christ into gluttony. Most modern scholars do not accept this view. France notes that tempt should better be translated as test that Satan was testing Jesus‘ understanding of his role rather than luring him into evil. Jones notes that calling someone who has fasted for forty days gluttonous because they want food is not very fair. Most modern scholars thus reject the sin explanation. Another view that was popular for a time was that this represented Jesus rejecting the role of the „economic messiah,“ that in this verse he demonstrates that it is not his role to feed the hungry of the world, but rather to provide spiritual sustenance. The most popular view today is that this passage echoes the history of Israel. The quote itself comes from the part of the Old Testament describing the period after the Exodus when the Israelites were wandering hungry in the wilderness and complaining about their hunger. This verse is seen to demonstrate that Jesus does not make the same mistake they did and accepts that God will ensure his safety.

The phrase „man shall not live by bread alone“ is today a common expression meaning that people need more than material things to truly live. However, it is also sometimes used in almost the opposite sense to justify materials luxuries beyond simple things like bread. Fortna notes that the word usually translated as man would more accurately be replaced by human beings as in the original Greek it is gender neutral.
