David Gilmour has announced a pair of shows added onto his summer tour to be played at Italy’s Pompeii Amphitheatre, the same site Pink Floyd shot their critically acclaimed concert film, Live at Pompeii, 45 years prior. One significant catch though. This time around, Gilmour will be playing to an audience.As Pink Floyd fans will recall, the band’s 1971 concert film was played before an empty audience. Directed by Adrian Maben over the course of four days, Live at Pompeii featured spellbinding performances of “Echoes” and “One of These Days” from 1971’s Meddle, as well as the title track to 1968’s A Saucerful of Secrets and “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun.”Gilmour’s return to Pompeii is scheduled for July 7-8, right smack dab in the middle of a lengthy world tour. Check below for complete tour dates.David Gilmour 2016 Tour Dates03/24 – Los Angeles, CA @ Hollywood Bowl03/25 – Los Angeles, CA @ Hollywood Bowl03/31 – Toronto, ON @ Air Canada Centre04/01 – Toronto, ON @ Air Canada Centre04/04 – Chicago, IL @ United Center04/06 – Chicago, IL @ Auditorium Theatre04/08 – Chicago, IL @ United Center04/10 – New York, NY @ Radio City Music Hall04/11 – New York, NY @ Madison Square Garden04/12 – New York, NY @ Madison Square Garden06/25 – Wroclaw, PL @ Market Square06/27 – Vienna, AT @ Schloss Schonburnn06/28 – Vienna, AT @ Schloss Schonburnn07/07 – Pompeii, IT @ Pompeii Amphitheatre07/08 – Pompeii, IT @ Pompeii Amphitheatre07/10 – Verona, IT @ Arena Di Verona07/11 – Verona, IT @ Arena Di Verona07/14 – Stuttgart, DE @ Schlossplatz07/16 – Paris, FR @ Chateau De Chantilly07/18 – Wiesbaden, DE @ Bowling Green07/20 – Nimes, FR @ Arenes De Nimes07/21 – Nimes, FR @ Arenes De Nimes07/23 – Besancon, FR @ Saline Royale D’Arc Et-Senans07/27 – Tienen, BE @ Grote Markt07/28 – Tienen, BE @ Grote Markt09/25 – London, UK @ Royal Albert Hall09/28 – London, UK @ Royal Albert Hall09/29 – London, UK @ Royal Albert Hall09/30 – London, UK @ Royal Albert Hall
Huawei PR Manager Gives Training Certificate to UB OrientatorChina’s telecommunication giant Huawei announced here on Monday that Botswana will become another beneficiary of the company’s global informational and communication technology (ICT) training program aimed at cultivating ICT professionals.The program is designed to develop and transform Botswana’s ICT industry as the chosen students will implement what they have learnt in this country, said Deputy Director of Huawei Botswana Ramasala Ntwaetsile, adding that the graduates will have the opportunity to study not only ICT technologies but Huawei corporate culture and Chinese culture.Established in 2005, Huawei Botswana will celebrate its 10th anniversary this year and officially launch its first Seeds for the Future program on Nov. 10. Ten best ICT students from the southern African country will be selected to study in China at Huawei’s cost.“For the past 10 years since Huawei operated in Botswana, it has provided a solid contribution in ICT development, provided solution and new technology as now Botswana is experiencing better communication and reduced digital communication cost,” he said.Huawei will work with Ministry of Education and Skills Development (MOESD), Ministry of Transport and Communications (MTC), University of Botswana (UB) and the Chinese Embassy in Botswana to jointly select the ICT students.The launch of the program will be another milestone of cooperation between Botswana and China, said Li Nan, counselor of the embassy.The Chinese government provides scholarship to about 80 students in Botswana every year and so far it has benefited over 500 students.Permanent Secretary of MTC Neil Fitt said the government is very delighted to see that Huawei has always abided by their aspiration of growing with Botswana and focused on development of local community. “Their launch of Seeds for the Future is yet another good act to promote the development of ICT in Botswana,” he said.The program has been successfully carried out in over 45 countries.
Amber CountrymanSubmitted to Sumner Newscow â€” On Monday, August 24, at 6:30 p.m, Amber Schmitz, a Sumner NewscowÂ writer, will present â€œThe History of Druryâ€ to Sumner County Historical and Genealogical Society members and guests at the Good Taste Chinese Buffet, 1311 E. 16th.Â St., Wellington.Â No cost for the program; guests are welcome, and meal time is 5:30 to 6:30 p.m..Â For possible weather cancellations, contact Jane Moore at 620-447-3266 or the restaurant at 620-399-8401.When Amber Schmitz moved to Drury at the age of 7, she enjoyed playing on the old schoolhouse playground and walking over the cement bridge that was built over the Chikaskia River in the 1920â€™S. She also enjoyed the interesting stories that she began hearing about her new hometown.The stories fascinated her.There were stories about a booming little river resort with boats, a beach, and a hotel for the vacationers that came by train and stagecoach. And there were stories about a grocery store owner that disappeared and nearly 100 years later, may (or may not) be â€˜buriedâ€™ in one of the cement bridge supports.Â And there was also a story about a man that woke up, saw an axe hanging just over his head, and screamed so loud that all the dogs barked and the neighbors all woke up.Schmitz found these stories compelling, and she has written them down, collected photographs, and explored the possibilities of some of the legends being true.Â â€œIâ€™ve wanted to write a book about Drury since I was 14 or 15,â€ Schmitz said, â€œEvery time some older person told me something, I went home and wrote it down in a notebook.â€If you have photographs or stories about Drury, Schmitz would very much like to connect with you for the book she is working on.

I need the contact information though too. It shows the old mill and everything as Drury used to appear.
