The Nightshift: 13 February 2017

Press Clippings:

Good Morning. It’s Monday, 13 February 2017 and this is the morning edition of The Nightshift.
More difficult weather in the Northeast and it’s not just snow. It’s a combination of snow, ice, frozen rain and winds that could hit a projected 60MPH. If the winds really build up, expect power outages as trees fall and power lines go down. Nothing good in that scenarios.
The Grammy awards were on last night and Adele took home 5 different Grammys…one for each category in which she was nominated. Highlights of the show were Bruno Mars performance and the Bruno Mars/The Time tribute to Prince (Bruno plays a wicked guitar on the Prince classic “Let’s Go Crazy” and it was good to see Maurice Day and The Time again); the Bee Gees song medley with Demi Lovato; Sturgill Simpson’s live performance(if you’re not into Sturgill, hop to it…he’s seriously good), Pentatonix, two live songs by Adele, one of which was a tribute to George Michael, Lady Gaga with Metallica (despite audio issues…really, she can do anything….know any other artists that can record with Tony Bennett and also perform with Metallica? ). Late night talk show personality James Corden hosted the event and brought a nice, low-key sensitivity to it, didn’t get in the way of the music, and made the whole event seem more intimate.
Also yesterday, U.S. pro Jordan Spieth won one of America’s classic golf tournaments, the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, posting a score that was 19 under par for the four day event; he won by four shots over the second place finisher. Spieth is playing exceptionally well early in the year; it’s great to see him play and to watch the class with which he comports himself on and off the course.
And, finally–as if you can avoid incessant media pressure–don’t forget: Valentine’s Day is Tomorrow (Tuesday).  Make your dinner reservations and buy your roses and gifts today. Don’t wait until Tuesday morning…..
And..the world goes on.
Catch up on what’s happening with the rest of the world by reading the front pages of the World’s Greatest newspapers.
