first_imgTags: Emily McManus, global music, Julia Crant, Rachel Schwartz Saint Mary’s College started the new semester off with the reintroduction of an old course in the music department: global music.Assistant professor of musicology and ethnomusicology Emily McManus reimplemented the class, which is open to both music majors and students in other fields.“It is fascinating how much we can learn about other people and cultures through the music and dance that they perform,” she said.McManus said the class, through music, discusses different cultures and places across the globe each semester.“This class prepares students to engage with an increasingly globalized world and to recognize and think critically about navigating cross-cultural interactions and communications,” she said.The course, which has currently only has four students enrolled, has two components, McManus said. The first focuses on case studies from around the globe.“Case studies range from the Aymara indigenous community in Peru/Bolivia/Chile to global hip-hop, and from music and nation formation in Israel to music as form of political resistance in the Islamic Republic of Iran,” McManus said.McManus said the second component involves learning research methods and writing case studies on music in South Bend.“Part of this project is realizing that this kind of research can be conducted anywhere and that our local communities are increasingly globalized,” McManus said. “Ideally, students will leave this course with a greater understanding of the cultural diversity of South Bend.” Senior Rachel Schwartz, who is taking the class to finish her music minor, said the small class size helps facilitate discussion and opens the door to all students to get a word in.“I’m hoping to come out of this course having learned more about music from other cultures and other parts of the world, as well as just learning about music from a more academic point of view,” Schwartz said.Julia Crant, a junior psychology major taking the class as an elective, said the course helps her think in a more global context and develop a better understanding of music and cultures from across the globe.“[The course] makes me think of music in a different way,” she said. “I wasn’t aware of all the different styles of music each culture has.McManus said the course does not require any previous experience with music, since many of the cultures that the students examine do not use the same musical system Saint Mary’s students learn.“Non-majors and majors will all be starting in the same place and will need to learn techniques for analyzing music that are not culture-specific,” McManus said. “These are methods that can easily be applied to the music of your daily life. More importantly, I think non-majors will gain a great understanding of the ways in which music and dance function in their own daily lives, as well as the lives of people across the globe.”last_img read more


first_imgAuction of one of Townsville’s most iconic homes. Former owner of the property Phoebe Short. Picture: Zak SimmondsBidding resumed with Mr Nickerson telling the crowd the house would be sold before the winning bid of $1.825 million was called.The six-figure sale comes as Townsville’s auction clearance rate sits at about 40 per cent, compared to Brisbane’s at 48 per cent.Harcourts Kingsberry selling agent Julie Mahoney said it was not just multimillion-dollar properties that suited auctions. She recently auctioned a house at Heatley on the same street as other properties which had stayed on the market for some time. “But this (9 Cleveland Terrace) was such a beautiful auction property to have because it had potential with the land size which could be reconfigured to have two titles,” she said.Ms Mahoney said auctions also avoided many of the pitfalls of buyers pulling out of a sale and removed any guesswork in regards to price.“I probably do more auctions than most people do and it just removes any complications,” she said.More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020“It removes the finance clause, people changing their minds and vendors are sure of a result.“You get to go to market without a price … because there is sometimes variations between valuers and in this market no one can pinpoint the value.“In this market the only person that determines the value is the buyer.”There are several key differences when a home is sold at auction compared to private treaty. There is no cooling off period so once the hammer falls on the highest bid the property is sold.Checks such as due diligence and building and pest inspections must be done before the auction, while finance also needs to be arranged beforehand. Auction of one of Townsville’s most iconic homes. Australasian auctioneer of the year Justin Nickerson. Picture: Zak SimmondsTOWNSVILLE’S famous white house on the hill has sold under the hammer for $1.825 million. The iconic home at 9 Cleveland Terrace, North Ward, sold at an on-site auction on Thursday night with 12 registered bidders fighting it out.The home was bought by a local couple believed to be from a prominent Townsville family.The bidding opened strongly at $1.3 million and kept going before it halted and auctioneer Justin Nickerson paused proceedings to consult with the vendors and highest bidder. 9 Cleveland Terrace, North WardMr Nickerson, who travelled from Brisbane for the auction and is the REIQ Australasian auctioneer of the year, said an auction was still a good choice for buyers despite Townsville’s soft market as selling under the hammer moved homes quickly.“It tends to shorten your days on the market which is an important thing in this sort of market,” he said.“In desirable areas like Brisbane or Sydney you might do an auction because you’re going to have a lot of buyers but here you want to do it because you don’t want to go to the market with the wrong price.“You want to go out there and test the market which auctions allow.”Realestate.com.au chief economist Nerida Conisbee said while a 40 per cent auction clearance rate was low, it was often hard to get an accurate statistic in cities like Townsville where there was not a high volume of turnover. “It’s not really a good statistic for places like Townsville compared to Melbourne or Sydney because not as many homes go to auction to get a realistic picture,” she said. “Some places in Townsville are experiencing really strong growth and others aren’t.“A lot of people still don’t bother going to auction in Townsville and that makes sense in a market that’s not super strong.”last_img read more

Lester (L)$4800$4300$22UPGRADE Today’s MLB DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel advice for Monday, June 24SP: Zack Greinke, Diamondbacks vs. Dodgers. Greinke was lit up by the Dodgers in their first meeting of the season for seven runs on seven hits over 3.2 innings. He allowed four home runs that game, and the Dodgers as a team set an opening day record by hitting eight homers. After that abysmal start Greinke has been very good, going 8-3 with a 2.91 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP. I love the price here and think Greinke is safe for cash games.C: James McCann, Tigers @ Red Sox. McCann may be just 3-for-13 against Eduardo Rodriguez, but all three hits went for extra bases, including two homers. Against LHPs this season McCann is hitting .318 with an OPS of .968.MORE MONDAY MLB: SP rankings | Fantasy Alarm PRO Tools1B: Carlos Santana, Indians vs. Royals. Santana is having a heck of a season in his return to Cleveland, hitting .293 with 17 home runs and an OPS of .957. Against RHPs this season he is hitting .282 with 14 of his 17 homers and an OPS of .981.2B: Ozzie Albies, Braves @ Cubs.  Albies is 5-for-5 with a home run in his career off Jon Lester. That shouldn’t be too shocking, as Albies rakes against southpaws and this year has been no different. Against LHPs this season, Albies is hitting .370 with an OPS of .971.SS: Javier Baez, Cubs vs. Braves. Teheran has been strong against RHHs, and Baez is just 1-for-9 off him in his career. That being said, this is one of the lower price tags we have seen with Baez, and his upside is very high.3B: Eduardo Escobar, Diamondbacks vs. Dodgers. Escobar is 2-for-6 with a home run in his career off Clayton Kershaw. He is another D-backs player who is smoking southpaws this season, hitting .385 with an OPS of 1.142 against them. SSJ. Báez (R)[email protected] 8:05J. Teheran (R)$4300$3400$13See above SPC.
