whatsapp KCS-content Share LUCIAN Grainge, the newly-ensconced chief executive of Universal Music Group who went out to the US a couple of months ago to take up his new post, has based himself in California.He had originally planned to be based – with his wife and children – in New York before changing plans.Grainge’s move marks a significant shift in the group’s power base, with the chief executive’s office now based at the heart of the wider US entertainment business, encompassing TV and film as well as music.Sources close to Grainge said he would initially move to the Santa Monica office on his own, though they added that “over the course of time it is quite possible that others will join him”. He is currently co-chief executive of Universal, along with chairman Doug Morris, but will assume sole responsibility for the group from 1 January 2011.The move comes after Grainge wielded his influence recently to strike a deal between Universal and entertainment mogul Simon Fuller, under which the group’s Interscope Geffen A&M division will market and distribute albums from the finalists of Fuller’s American Idol show.Grainge joins Universal’s president and chief operating officer Zach Horowitz in California. Morris and chief financial officer Nick Henny are still based in New York.The group’s labels will also remain in their current locations, with Interscope in Los Angeles and Island Def Jam and Universal Motown in New York.Grainge left the UK earlier in the summer after leaving his position as head of Universal’s international division. He was given a star-studded send-off at a party at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Knightsbridge, where artists including The Killers, Duffy and Amy Winehouse joined the likes of Lord Mandelson, Lloyds chairman Lord Levene, WPP boss Sir Martin Sorrell and Topshop billionaire Sir Philip Green to pay their respects. whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldCrowdy FanShe Didn’t Know Why Everyone Was Staring At Her Hilarious T-ShirtCrowdy Fan Show Comments ▼ Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Proof Sunday 12 September 2010 11:28 pm West Coast move for UMG boss Grainge Tags: NULLread more

That’s not going to happen. The risk is rather one of attrition, of seepage, that individuals will move and functions will get offshored.” Thursday 16 September 2010 8:57 pm Show Comments ▼ KCS-content whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailNight DailyHe Was The Smartest Man Who Ever Lived – But He Led A Miserable LifeNight DailyNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyThe Sports DropForgotten College Basketball Stars: Where Are They Now?The Sports DropBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times whatsapp Tags: NULLread more
Tuesday 21 September 2010 7:59 pm Show Comments ▼ Gold could hit $1,500 by year end “With the break of the previous all-time high at $1,265 last week the next target looks set to be the $1,300 level, and given the fact that demand is set to remain pretty robust a move towards $1,500 by the end of the year is by no means out of the question,” said Michael Hewson, of CMC Markets.“Much will depend on how the market perceives the actions of the Federal Reserve… but any indications that further stimulus is on the cards will continue to buoy the gold price.”With investors worried about currency devaluations in the face of a double dip, gold has been popular. But after hitting record highs for three days, the price dipped yesterday as a report showing signs of stability in the US housing market prompted bullion investors to take profits.Traders said the gold market was nervous about the Federal Reserve’s policy meeting. Broker Tom Pawlicki, of MF Global, said gold could fall if the Fed “stayed away from commenting on new measures to spur the economy”.

“The reality is there’s been a change in the relationship over 14 years and, hopefully, we can just put it behind us,” he went on. “You go from sleeping over at somebody’s house five days a week, and now you don’t sleep over. It’s just not that big of a deal.” Jeter had left the clubhouse by the time reporters were allowed back in. His agent, Casey Close, later said Jeter didn’t want to comment. Most of the Yankees have long concluded the relationship between their captain and Rodriguez is a non-issue. “They’re probably not as tight as they used to be, but it’s not a situation where they don’t look at each other and don’t say, `Hi.’ They’re teammates and they’re still friends,” Jason Giambi said. “I suspect it’s nowhere near as bad as the general perception is,” general manager Brian Cashman added. During the off-season, former Yankee Darryl Strawberry said Jeter needs to “embrace” Rodriguez, who said he didn’t feel Jeter needed to support him more. “I’m a big boy. I’m 31 years old now, so I should be able to help myself out there,” he said. “I care about what he thinks about me on the field. I think it’s important for us to be on the right page. And we are. We’re here to win a championship together.” Rodriguez is entering the seventh season of his 10-year, $252 million contract, a deal he signed with the Texas Rangers. He can terminate the agreement after the season, forfeit the $72 million owed in the final three years and become a free agent. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “People start assuming that things are a lot worse than what they are, which they’re not. But they’re obviously not as great as they used to be. We were like blood brothers,” Rodriguez said. “You don’t have to go to dinner with a guy four, five times a week to do what you’re doing. It’s actually much better than all you guys expect, but I just want to let the truth be known.” On the first day of his fourth season with the Yankees, he did three rounds of interviews – English-language television, Spanish-language television and print reporters. He talked about his poor postseason (“I stunk”), his pride at being the highest-paid player in U.S. team sports (“It’s pretty cool”) and his refusal to rule out exercising the opt-out provision in his contract after this season (“I understand my options”). Rodriguez and Jeter were good friends back in the 1990s, when Rodriguez was a young star shortstop in Seattle and Jeter emerged as a force that helped the Yankees win four World Series titles in five years. But Rodriguez dissed Jeter in a 2001 Esquire article by saying “Jeter’s been blessed with great talent around him” and “he’s never had to lead.” “You go into New York, you wanna stop Bernie (Williams) and (Paul) O’Neill,” he was quoted as saying. “You never say, `Don’t let Derek beat you.’ He’s never your concern.” Since Rodriguez was acquired by the Yankees in 2004, their relationship has been analyzed and dissected, a soap-opera sidebar to New York’s postseason failures. Until now, Rodriguez had denied their relationship had changed. He said it was “important” that people heard the truth directly from him. “Let’s make a contract,” Rodriguez said after the first Jeter question. “You don’t ask me about Derek anymore, and I promise I’ll stop lying to all you guys.” TAMPA, Fla. – Yes, it’s true, admitted Alex Rodriguez. His relationship with Derek Jeter is not what it once was. Rodriguez, surrounded by reporters and cameras as he sat in the first-base dugout Monday at Legends Field, played true confessions in acknowledging they no longer have sleepovers and don’t go out together all the time anymore.
