Taylor Swift takes home third straight artist of the year award at 2020 AMAs

Taylor Swift won her third consecutive artist of the year prize at the American Music Awards, but she missed the show for a good reason: She said she’s busy re-recording her songs’ masters after her catalog was sold.

In a video that aired during Sunday’s awards show, the pop star said “the reason I’m not there tonight is I’m actually re-recording all of my old music in the studio where we originally recorded it. So it’s been amazing. And I can’t wait for you to hear it.”

Last year music manager Scooter Braun — who manages Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande — announced that his Ithaca Holdings company had acquired Big Machine Label Group, the home to Swift’s first six albums. This month Braun said he has sold the master rights to Swift’s first six albums to an investment company; Swift acknowledged the sale on social media and said

The 120 members of the Florida State House of Representatives attend a special session 12 December, 2000 aimed at drafting a resolution that would go to the State’s Senate to appoint the Florida State presidential electors in Tallahassee, Florida.

The editorial began by saying, “Chris Sprowls’ first speech as speaker of the Florida House Tuesday was a loooong one, covering subjects that ranged from patriotism to law and order to social media misbehavior.”

“And yet, in the course of nearly 5,000 words—the length of some State of the Union speeches—the speaker didn’t once utter the word ‘unemployment.’,” the editorial said. “It was a glaring omission in a state with a 7.6% unemployment rate and a disastrous payment system that failed hundreds of thousands of out-of-work

T-Mobile Is Killing Off the TVision Home Internet TV Service After Launching Cheaper OTT Bundles

Click here to read the full article.

This comes as no surprise: T-Mobile is shutting down the TVision Home “fat bundle” pay-TV service, which carried a starting price of $100, at the end of the year.

The announcement comes just a few weeks after the wireless carrier debuted a new set of over-the-top live TV services, also (confusingly) under the TVision brand. Unlike TVision Home, the TVision Live, Vibe and Channels packages work over any broadband connection and have much lower price points.

As of Dec. 30, 2020 at 3 a.m. ET, T-Mobile will no longer offer the TVision Home service or high-speed internet service, according to the company’s new FAQ on its website about the shutdown.

“TVision Home was just the start of our mission to make TV better for everyone and remove customer pain points,” the company says in a message to customers. “We’ve been hard at work

‘The Film Is About the Loss of Home’

Click here to read the full article.

For her second feature documentary, after the highly personal “Cloudy Times” (2014), Paraguayan director Arami Ullón looked to her homeland’s vast and largely unpopulated Chaco region for inspiration. What she found there surprised her: she encountered a race of people known as the Arayeo, who had been taken from their native idyll and left in the middle of nowhere, with next to no amenities, by well-meaning white Christians. You might think this kind of thing died out in the 19th century but far from it. “It started to happen systematically from the late 50s on,” says Ullón. “The last known episode happened at the end of the 90s and there was one particular episode at the beginning of 2000, but this is continuously happening, so to speak.”

To tell the Arayeo’s story, Ullón found Mateo Sobode Chiqueno, who was taken by the people
