A new album titled Forever Words is set to be released via Legacy Recordings on April 6. The collaborative album will function as a way to publish Johnny Cash’s previously unrecorded lyrics and poems, with the words set to music by the likes of the late Chris Cornell, as well as other big names like Willie Nelson, Alison Krauss, John Mellencamp, Robert Glasper, Elvis Costello, Brad Paisley, and others.After Johnny Cash and his wife June Carter Cash both died in 2003, Cash’s son, John Carter Cash, was left with a huge number of personal items, including handwritten letters, poems, and other writings of the legendary musician. Many of them were included in Forever Words: The Unknown Poems, a book that contained Johnny Cash’s unpublished writing.Conceived as a sort of “musical companion” to the book, John Carter Cash took on the role of Forever Words’ co-producer, alongside Steve Berkowitz, inviting the all-star crew of musicians, including Johnny’s daughter Rosanne Cash and step-daughter Carlene Carter, to create new music to accompany Cash’s words.As stated by Variety, John Carter Cash had this to say about Forever Words, “Determining the artist for each song was truly a matter of the heart. … I picked the artists who are most connected with my father, who had a personal story that was connected with Dad. It became an exciting endeavor to go through these works, to put them together and present them to different people who could finish them in a way that I believed that Dad would have wanted.”Johnny Cash: Forever Words Tracklist:Forever/I Still Miss Someone – Kris Kristofferson and Willie NelsonTo June This Morning – Ruston Kelly and Kacey MusgravesGold All Over the Ground – Brad PaisleyYou Never Knew My Mind – Chris CornellThe Captain’s Daughter – Alison Krauss and Union StationJellico Coal Man – T.

The need to future proof our workforce through talent development is not a new concept. We’ve experienced change in the workplace over and over in the last 100+ years. However, learning from the past, we are now more aware of the need to future proof our organizations, and are taking proactive steps to avoid being left behind.Asked what competencies or skills are needed to future proof our workforce, we tend to answer with technology. We talk about data science, digital literacy, machine learning, artificial intelligence and cybersecurity. These definitely are some of the skills of the future, but they are not the only ones. In this ever-changing world, future proofing our workforce includes a mix of technical, industry, professional and leadership skills.To balance the scales on talking about future skills, let’s take a look at those that fall within the professional or leadership categories. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
LEON Andrews led from the front with the ball and helped with the bat, but the Guyana Defence Force were not at full strength on day two of their Georgetown Cricket Association-Noble House Seafoods Second Division two-day cricket competition, which resulted in the home team winning by an innings and 30 runs.Although the Georgetown Cricket Club had wrested control on Saturday, the opening day, and had a sizable lead after their first innings, GDF could have still held on for a draw, but only nine players were available to bat—when the eighth wicket fell on Sunday afternoon, the army had to concede defeat.Scores in the game: GDF 91 and 153, GCC 274.After taking the lead on Saturday due to a half-century from youngster, Mavendra Dindyal (72), the home team continued from their overnight score of 145-3 on Sunday morning. The army had a good session, since apart for a fighting unbeaten 51 from teenager Zachary Jodah (2x4s, 23 singles) and an aggressive last stand by fast bowler Carlos La Rose, the rest of the side succumbed to the off-spin bowling of Andrews.Andrews, who had taken the wicket of Dindyal on Saturday, took five wickets on Sunday, including overnight batsmen Rivaldo Phillips (28) and Deonarine Seegobin (23). The army could have restricted the side to a lower score, but La Rose got on top of the bowling as he and Jodah added 59 runs for the last wicket. The number 11 batsman struck three sixes and two fours in a score of 35, which helped to push GCC to 274.Andrews finished with 6-96 from 28 overs, while Damian Waldon and Randy Lindore supported with one wicket each. In GDF’s second innings, Andrews (31) paced his time in the middle with a plethora of twos, but like several of the top order batsmen, he had a start, but did not follow on.GDF’s middle-order then had a moment of lapse, as four wickets went down in quick succession (62-1 to 63-5); Joshua Jones, though, kept the scoreboard ticking with some aggressive batting. His 52 included four sixes and one four. Despite his half-century, and 25 runs from Dameon Ross and 20 from Lindore, GDF succumbed at 153-8 just before the scheduled close of play.Left- arm spinner Stephon Wilson again took three wickets. He proved to be extremely economical with 3-13 from 12 overs. Darrius Andrews and Bernard Bailey supported with two wickets each.
