Argerich/Staatskapelle Berlin/Mehta - Ravel and Stravinsky, 23 February 2020

Philharmonie Ravel: La Valse Ravel: Piano Concerto in G major Stravinsky: The Rite of Spring Martha Argerich (piano) Staatskapelle Berlin Zubin Mehta (conductor) Martha Argerich notwithstanding, this was, I am afraid, a disappointing concert: in the vein of Zubin Mehta’s Berlin Philharmonic Bruckner Eighth in the autumn, only more so. Perhaps that was because what can to a certain extent pass muster in Bruckner, at best letting the music flow without...

New CEO Named for Axiom Managed Services Spin-Off Factor

Just last week, I reported here about the name change of Axiom Managed Services, one of two companies spun off last year from alternative legal services provider Axiom. With its new name, Factor, and a “doubling down” by two long-term investors, the company characterized the move as a relaunch to position it for rapid growth. Now the company, which has operated without a formal chief executive officer since last year’s spin-off, has named the person who will lead it into this period of ambitious...

Longtime Legendary Knopf Editor Sonny Mehta, 77

“That’s No Way To Say Goodbye”: Maestro Mehta and Israel

JERUSALEM, MEHTA, MAHLER AND HATIKVA Beneath the Music Those are quite difficult moments, the moments of farewell. Especially if people are tight on in a family-like motto for the span of  two generations. No wonder that the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, brilliant and one of a kind, to me, took three months to depart with Maestro Mehta who led it for half of the century. Over the summer 2019, we saw the international farewell tour of the outstanding musicians with their outstanding conductor –...

Eagles trade deadline day tracker

While it seems pretty unlikely the Eagles would land Bell, they have had interest in him in the past. Here's where Mehta mentions the Eagles: "Keep an eye on the Texans, Chiefs and Bills, who could use a dynamic running back. The Eagles likely would love to add Bell, but it appears that it would be cost prohibitive to add him."

Zubin Mehta – so soon?

It is really hard to imagine Israel Philharmonic concerts without Zubin Mehta’s figure on the podium at the opening of the season. Love of music, Israel and the Jewish people came together in one genius. Article by Jack Engelhard | Israel National News Fifty years — the times zipped by so fast. What’s the rush? For certain nobody asked Zubin Mehta to go. For some 50 years, the Mumbai-born conductor was among the most popular cultural figures in Israel. Under one title or another, he served as...

Indian electric scooter startup Ather raises $51 mln in fresh funding round: Reuters

Electric scooter maker Ather Energy raised $51 million in a fresh round of funding, the startup said on Tuesday, at a time when rising pollution levels have prompted the Indian government to push for more electric vehicles on the road.

Judge Told Trump Attorneys Their Case To Block Subpoenas Isn’t ‘Serious’

The Manhattan federal judge who immediately blocked an attempt from President Trump to halt a Congressional subpoena for his financial records told private attorneys hired by the President that their case was not “serious.” During the hour-long read of his opinion on Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Edgardo Ramos drew a distinction between the “serious political ramifications” of the investigation into a president’s finances, and what constitutes a “serious” question to be considered by a judge...

Trump Loss In Financial Records Battle Sets Stage For Future Fights With Congress

When D.C. federal judge Amit Mehta upheld a Congressional subpoena into President Trump’s accounting firm on Monday, he made the first real chip in the wall that Trump has built against Congressional oversight. Attorneys told TPM that Mehta’s decision constituted a “thorough rebuttal” of the President’s argument — one that provides a framing device for oversight-related cases to come in the Trump era. Rather than issuing a narrow ruling, Mehta directed his opinion toward the broad, constituti...

Very Important

A highly knowledgable lawyer writes in the following about the Trump accounting firm subpoena … Judge Mehta wrote a smart and detailed opinion. And his decision not to grant a stay pending appeal sends a strong message that he views Trump’s arguments as extremely weak. Trump of course has appealed and will seek review in the Supreme Court if he loses in the court of appeals. His goal is to run out the clock until the middle of next year, which will make it hard for the House to analyze the doc...

Democrats Closer to Seeing Trump Finance Records With Ruling

U.S. District Judge Amit Mehta in Washington said on Monday that the House Oversight and Reform Committee has the authority to examine Trump’s personal and business records going back to 2011. The judge rejected Trump’s claim that Congress isn’t seeking the documents for a legitimate legislative purpose and therefore isn’t entitled to them. “President Trump cannot block the subpoena to Mazars,” Mehta said in a 41-page ruling.
